‘Six Days in Fallujah’: A Bloody Iraq Battle and Video Game That Almost Was

  • Variety
Before “Call of Duty” turned from a World War II series and into a modern military blockbuster, game developer Destineer, with studios in both Raleigh and Minneapolis, began crafting “Six Days in Fallujah.” Its dramatic interactive take on a deadly, real-life Iraq battle, mixed in interview footage from marines who were there, to accurately depict a recent wartime event.

“The greatest generation has Normandy. Gen X will have Fallujah,” writes Ssg David Bellavia in his book “House to House,” recounting his November 2004 experience within the Iraqi city. The Department of Defense called “some of the heaviest urban combat Marines have been involved in since Hue City in Vietnam in 1968.” Yet, Fallujah’s story never reached beyond text and documentaries. Unlike “Black Hawk Down” or the recent “12 Strong,” Fallujah’s story remains cinematically untold.

But it almost happened. Soon after the military’s operation, after two months of combat, Destineer headed by founder Peter Tamte,

‘Black Panther’ Continues Reign Atop DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Charts
Marvel’s “Black Panther,” distributed by Walt Disney Studios, held back a pair of newcomers to handily top the home video sales charts for a second consecutive week.

The top new release on Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart the week ended May 26 was 20th Century Fox’s spy thriller “Red Sparrow,” which debuted at No. 2 selling 22% as many discs as the returning superhero actioner.

“Sparrow” stars Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian ballerina who is forced into becoming a seductive secret agent after her dancing career is cut short due to injury. It earned $46.9 million at the domestic box office.

No. 3 on both charts was Warner’s “Game Night,” a comedy about a group of friends who are caught up in a life-and-death caper that they believe is an elaborate role-playing game. It took in $68.9 million at U.

In “12 Strong” a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth), is sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince a Northern Alliance General to join forces with them to fight their common adversary: the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the team —accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare—must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghani horse soldiers, combining ancient strategies of cavalry warfare with twenty-first-century aerial bombardment technology to perform a seemingly impossible feat.

Daytime Dramas Rely on Returning Faves to Draw New Audiences, Emmys

  • Variety
Soaps have always drawn on their rich histories for story ideas, but serials seem to be doing this to an even greater degree as competition for eyeballs is at an all-time high. And such storytelling strategy has led to Daytime Emmy nomination success.

When Bradley Bell, head writer and executive producer of “The Bold and the Beautiful” (nominated for 18 awards at the 45th annual ceremony this year), wanted viewers to sympathize with resident rogue Quinn Forrester (Rena Sofer), he knew he needed a formidable force.

“We thought what better way to do that than to bring [back] the ultimate baddie — Sheila,” Bell says of the character played by Kimberlin Brown.

The show’s breakaway vase budget took a hit, but after some classic battles, viewer sympathy for Quinn grew.

“Instead of looking outside your family structure, it’s better to draw from within to keep your characters engaged,” says Bell. “The

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?
“Rampage” opened #1 last weekend at just under $36 million, with Dwayne Johnson its only name draw. Is that enough to make The Rock the biggest movie star in Hollywood — or, is his greatest asset the near-complete dearth of actors who can open movies?

Johnson’s marquee value is well documented. Since 2011, he appeared in eight films that grossed over $100 million (nine if you include the animated “Moana”). “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “The Fate of the Furious” in 2017 each exceeded $200 million. However, times have changed. Once, being a top star meant your movies were always the year’s biggest movies. Now, in an era where animation and comic-book adaptations are the biggest draws, an actor’s own larger-than-life appeal is less important.

Rampage” should make around $90 million domestic and another $300 million or so additional overseas. Expect it to make $400 worldwide, perhaps a little more. With production and marketing costs topping $220 million,

Rob Riggle Fought For Dramatic Role In 'Midnight Sun'

  • CineMovie
Rob Riggle often tickles our funny bone as the comic relief in many of his movies (21 Jump Street, The Hangover) and television projects. We've also often seen the comedian play military and authoritative types (12 Strong, Let's Be Cops) given his tall statue and military background, but this time he wanted to play up the sensitive side of a character. Riggle's tells Sabina Graves how he fought for the role as a single father to an teen (played by Bella Thorne) suffering from a rare disease in Midnight Sun. Watch the interview below.

Michael Shannon Watched Shape of Water Win Best Picture at a Dive Bar
The Oscars are the biggest night of the year for the movie industry, with the biggest names in Hollywood gathering to celebrate the best movies and performances of the year. Not everyone can make it to the big event though, such as Michael Shannon, who played a pivotal role in Best Picture winner The Shape of Water. As it turns out, the two-time Oscar-nominated actor watched The Shape of Water win the Best Picture Oscar from a Chicago dive bar known as the Old Town Ale House, as revealed in a photo of the actor shared by Chicago Times theater critic Chris Jones. Here's what the critic had to say on Twitter yesterday.

Official Trailer for Gritty Crime Thriller 'Juggernaut' Starring Jack Kesy

"You're a time bomb. Ever since the day you were born." LevelFILM has released the first official trailer for a gritty crime thriller titled Juggernaut, the feature directorial debut of Australian filmmaker Daniel Dimarco. This play at a few smaller festivals last year, but has mostly gone under the radar until now. Juggernaut stars Jack Kesy (seen Baywatch, 12 Strong, Death Wish) as a small town outlaw who returns to his hometown, violently obsessed with the notion that his mother's death was not a suicide. The full cast includes Amanda Crew, David Cubitt, Stephen McHattie, Peter McRobbie, Ty Olsson, and Matty Finochio. This is a damn good trailer, very moody with a few cool shots, I'm quite curious about this now. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Daniel Dimarco's Juggernaut, direct from YouTube: After discovering the news that his mother has taken her life, Saxon Gamble returns home,

Must-See Thriller Juggernaut Gets Release Date

The Whistler Film Festival always provides a great selection of Canadian film and last year's edition was no exception and among the Canadian content offerings was writer/director Daniel Dimarco's feature film debut Juggernaut (review).

Jack Kesy stars as Saxon, a small town crook who returns home obsessed with the idea that his mother, whose death was deemed a suicide, was actually murdered. He's determined to find out who killed her and take his revenge.

Though he's already appeared in small roles on a number of high profile projects including "The Strain," Baywatch and 12 Strong, Kesy caught my attention on TNT's crime/comedy hybrid "Claw

Box-Office Weekend—Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Reclaims Top Spot

As predicted last week, right here in the Box-Office Weekend column, the top ten didn’t fluctuate much at all during this past weekend, save for the week’s lone new release and a few films shuffling positions with each other. First, returning to the top spot is Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle with $11 million. The sequel has now brought in a staggering $352.6 million during its seven-week run. Meanwhile, last week’s first-place finisher, Maze Runner: The Death Cure managed $10.2 million to increase its two-week haul to $39.8 million.

The only newcomer this past weekend, the Helen Mirren-led horror film Winchester, finished in third place with $9.3 million and seems off to a decent start given the competition it was facing. The Greatest Showman held firm to the fourth spot with $7.8 million. The Hugh Jackman film has now made $137.5 million domestically during its seven-week run. Elsewhere, falling from third to fifth

Trailer For William Fichtner and Michael Rosenbaum's Thriller The Neighbor

Hey, look! Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum actually co-stars in a new movie coming out with William Fichtner (Elysium, 12 Strong) called The Neighbor. This actually looks like a decent thriller that would be worth checking out... if this trailer didn't basically tell us the whole damn story! 

The story follows a "middle-aged man (Fichtner) in a stagnant marriage becomes voyeuristically obsessed with an attractive young woman (Jessica McNamee) when she and her seemingly abusive husband (Rosenbaum) move in next door."

If you're a fan of either of these actors, maybe you'll want to check this out. Who knows, maybe there's some kind of twist in the story that isn't in this trailer. The Neighbor was directed by Aaron Harvey (Catch .44) and it's set to be released in theaters and on VOD on January 26th, 2018.

Have you ever had any experiences with crazy or creepy neighbors? I have!

William Fichtner in Official Trailer for Domestic Thriller 'The Neighbor'

"What were you doing in my house?" "I heard a scream." Vertical Entertainment has debuted the official trailer for a low-key thriller titled The Neighbor, from director Aaron Harvey. The indie drama stars the very talented character actor William Fichtner (last seen in 12 Strong, Elysium, The Lone Ranger, Drive Angry, The Dark Knight) as a reserved man stuck in a stagnant marriage whose life is upended when an attractive young woman and her husband move in to the home next door to them. The cast includes Jessica McNamee, Jean Louisa Kelly, Michael Rosenbaum, Colin Woodell, and Erich Anderson. I can't tell if there's a big twist in this, but it seems like a solidly engaging friendly-neighbor thriller. Check it out.

Box-Office Weekend—Maze Runner: The Death Cure Debuts on Top

Bringing in an estimated $23.5 million, Maze Runner: The Death Cure took the top spot at the box office this weekend. While the film did well, it’s opening was still a bit disappointing given this installment’s budget. Finishing in second-place was last week’s top film, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle with $16.4 million. The film has made an astonishing $338.1 million in its first six weeks of release, passing last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming ($334.2 million).

After expanding nationwide this weekend, Hostiles managed to land in third place with $10.2 million. Hugh Jackman and The Greatest Showman swapped spots with Steven Spielberg’s The Post to finish in fourth place with $9.5 million (and a six-week total of $126.5 million). The Post has brought in $58.5 million during its six-week run, including $8.9 million this weekend.

The Chris Hemsworth-led action film, 12 Strong fell from second to sixth, but still brought in $8.6 million, raising its two-week total to $29.8 million,
