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.

"This image, per Facebook pal Bruce Elliott, is of Michael Shannon sitting in the Old Town Ale House last night watching the movie in which he starred win Best Picture. No sound. Just the juke. This image

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

Chris Hemsworth Eyes ‘Men in Black’ Spinoff
Chris Hemsworth is in early talks to star in Sony’s “Men in Black” spin-off, sources confirmed to Variety.

F. Gary Gray, who previously helmed “Straight Outta Compton” and “The Fate of the Furious,” is on board to direct.

Hemsworth would play one of the new agents in the spinoff. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not reprise their roles in the film, which is meant to launch a new franchise with fresh talent.

The studio fast-tracked the project earlier this fall, setting Matt Holloway and Art Marcum to pen the script and dating a May 17, 2019 release.

The original movie followed Smith and Jones, who played agents of a secret organization, known as the Men in Black, and protected Earth from intergalactic bad guys. The first film was huge hit and produced two more sequels.

Sony had originally planned on combining the “Men in Black” and “21 Jump Street” franchises, but have since

‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Tops Box Office With $38.8 Million, ‘Peter Rabbit’ Hops to $25 Million
Universal’s opening of “Fifty Shades Freed” is dominating North American moviegoing this weekend with a solid $38.8 million at 3,678 locations as cinemas await the arrival of “Black Panther.”

Sony’s launch of family comedy “Peter Rabbit” wound up with a better-than-expected $25 million at 3,725 sites. Clint Eastwood’s thriller “The 15:17 to Paris” from Warner Bros. arrived above forecasts at $12.6 million at 3,042 venues for the weekend.

A pair of sturdy holiday season holdovers in their eighth weekends took fourth and fifth as Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” finished with about $9.8 million at 3,126 sites and Fox’s “The Greatest Showman” grossed $6.4 million at 2,373 screens. “Jumanji” declined only 10% from the previous weekend and will finish the weekend with $365.7 million in 54 days in 38th place on the all-time domestic grosser list, $3 million behind “Despicable Me 2.” “Showman” slid only 17% and has totaled $146.5 million.

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

Box Office: ‘Jumanji’ Regains Top Spot for Modest Super Bowl Weekend

Box Office: ‘Jumanji’ Regains Top Spot for Modest Super Bowl Weekend
Sony’s resilient “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” has returned to the top of the North American box office, leading a modest Super Bowl weekend with $11 million at 3,553 sites.

The session caps a remarkable run for the Dwayne Johnson-Kevin Hart action comedy, which also won the box office on its third, fourth and fifth weekends. “Jumanji” has become the 42nd highest domestic grosser of all time with $352.6 million, less than $500,000 behind Johnson’s “Furious 7” for the 41st spot.

Jumanji,” which declined just 32%, is only the 11th title to top $11 million in its seventh weekend. It’s the lowest total for a first-place film since the second weekend of “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” won the final frame of August.

Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” which won the box office last weekend, finished second with $10.2 million from 3,793 locations. The weekend’s sole opener, Helen Mirren’s horror-thriller “Winchester,” launched in third

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,

‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Leads Strong Holdover Box Office

  • Indiewire
The third installment of the young adult “Maze Runner” franchise, “The Death Cure” (20th Century Fox), pulled in over $23 million to take the weekend top spot. Strong holdovers and a bigger than usual boost for a wide swath of Oscar nominees led to a weekend total just under the total for the same late January date last year. Two weekends in a row lag behind 2017, but by the end of the first month the tally should pull three per cent ahead.

Big titles led by “Black Panther” (Disney) in February will determine if 2018 can keep pace with a very strong second month last year (led by “Get Out”) — going up against three weeks of Winter Olympics.

But holdover movies in release made most of the noise this weekend, led by non-Oscar nominee “Hostiles” (Entertainment Studios) which scored third place after its initial modest awards-qualifying dates and big city expansion. Two

Miley Cyrus Hits Australian Beach in a Red Bikini Before Heading to N.Y.C. for Grammys
Miley Cyrus took a break from the winter chill with a beach vacation.

The singer escaped to Bryon Bay in Australia, the native country of her longtime sweetheart Liam Hemsworth, earlier this month. She was spotted in a red two-piece bathing suit along with a gold necklace and matching hoop earrings during a solo beach day.

The couple spent time in Australia to celebrate Liam’s 28th birthday with al fresco meals with his parents and sunny dates at the beach.

Cyrus has since made her way back to New York City, where she performed at a pre-Grammys tribute event on Friday.

Box Office: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Sprints Past ‘Jumanji’

Box Office: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Sprints Past ‘Jumanji’
Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” has ended the three-week reign of Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” with a respectable $23.5 million at 3,787 North American locations for the weekend.

“The Death Cure,” starring Dylan O’Brien in the finale of the dystopian trilogy, performed at the top end of forecasts with the best performances in the west and south central regions. The opening had been delayed for a year following injuries O’Brien suffered on the set.

The original “Maze Runner” launched with $32.5 million in 2014 and “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” launched with $30.6 million in 2015. “The Death Cure” generated a B+ Cinemascore and drew a 51% female audience; 57% of the total audience was under 25.

“Jumanji” finished with $16.4 million at 3,553 sites in its sixth weekend, declining only 16% and giving it $338 million domestically since Dec. 20 — $3 million behind “Zootopia” for the 46th spot on the all-time list. That’s far above anyone’s original forecast and makes it the third-highest
