The Wolverine helps Hugh Jackman fulfill his dream

Actor Hugh Jackman has fulfilled his dream of becoming a Guinness World Records holder by being feted with the honour for having the longest career.

The Wolverine star received the honour for Longest Career as a Live Action Marvel Superhero during a surprise presentation on British TV show "This Morning" on Wednesday, reports aceshowbiz.com.

Jackman, who has played the character for 16 years and 228 days, shares the honour with his X-men castmate Sir Patrick Stewart, who has portrayed Professor Charles Xavier (Professor X) for the same amount of time.

"When I was a kid, the Guinness Book of Records was it... That's it, I've made it! This is why I got into showbiz, thank you," he said.

During a recent radio interview, the Australian star said he was hoping the success of his The Greatest Showman soundtrack would land him in the record books.

Beyoncé's Royal Surprise to Hugh Jackman's Peak Performance: The Brit Awards Biggest Moments
Meghan Markle stole the show at the 2019 Brit Awards Wednesday — despite being 3,500 miles away in New York.

The appearance of the Duchess of Sussex in a painting behind Beyonce and Jay-Z drew audible gasps and giggles from the audience as the Carters picked up the award for Best International Group in a pre-recorded video clip.

“Thank you so much to the Brit awards for this incredible honor,” Beyoncé, 37, said to the camera. “You guys have always been so supportive. Everything is love. Thank you.”

The Cast of Dune Has Us Wondering Who Isn't Going to Be in the Film

2019 Winter Box Office Plummets to 8-Year Low

2019 has been a pretty dismal year for the North American box office. As a whole, it's the lowest it has been in 8 years and this past President's Day long weekend is the lowest in 15 years. Last year, the entertainment industry was seeing record breaking highs for the month of February, thanks to the massive success of Marvel Studios' Black Panther, which is up for the Academy Award for Best Picture this year.

Even with the carryover success of Warner Bros.' Aquaman, January of this year was still down 15% from last year. With that being said, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The Greatest Showman, and The Last Jedi helped to carryover from late 2017 into January 2018. Total revenue for January 2019 came in about $812 million, which is the lowest since 2011. Paul Dergarabedian of Comscore had this to say about this year's box office slump.

Samsung Presses Pause on Blu-ray Players

Kirsten Howard Feb 18, 2019

The end of physical media may be in sight...

Blu-ray and 4K Uhd could be on their last legs, if production trends continue as they are.

Samsung has announced it's done making new Blu-ray players, scrapping its plans to release a new high-end 4K model in the Us this year. This news follows reports that recent movie offerings such as The Favourite, Stan & Ollie, and Holmes And Watson will skip 4K Uhd completely upon home release.

"Samsung will no longer introduce new Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray player models in the Us market," Samsung told CNET, confirming the move.

It's thought that there are a number of reasons behind Blu-ray slowly going the way of the dodo, including a lack of willingness on the industry's part to bring the unit price down on new releases, a surge in streaming options, and a general public who are indifferent

Box Office: Winter 2019 Revenue Hits 8-Year Low in U.S.
Captain Marvel can't arrive in theaters soon enough.

That's the refrain across Hollywood — and on Wall Street — as industry observers grapple with a downturn at the North American box office following a record-shattering 2018. Revenue for the first seven weeks of 2019 has hit an eight-year low, capped by what looks to be the worst Presidents Day weekend in 15 years.

January was down more than 15 percent from the prior year sans a breakout hit or a carryover holiday hit such as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Greatest Showman last year, or a Star Wars pic the ...

In Another Blow to Physical Media, Samsung Is Done Making Blu-ray Players

  • Indiewire
In bad news for proponents of physical media, Samsung has announced that it is exiting the Blu-ray market. The company said it “will no longer introduce new Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray player models in the Us market” in a statement shared with CNET. Its newest model was released in 2017, and plans to produce a new high-end 4K player this year were scrapped. The move follows a similar decision by Oppo, which announced its own exit from the market last April.

In addition to the fact that streaming movies and TV shows has become the norm over the last several years, Blu-ray hasn’t managed to fully replace DVD as the go-to form of physical media in the way that DVD did to VHS — even after besting the short-lived HD DVD in a format war 11 years ago. Any number of high-profile and/or well received movies have yet to be released on Blu-ray as a result,

Deadpool and Wolverine Share a Steamy Bromance in Latest BossLogic Fan Art
BossLogic is back at it with a new vision of Deadpool and Wolverine together. Disney is pretty close to closing their Fox acquisition and Marvel fans are starting to get really excited about the idea of the X-Men and Fantastic Four joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige is just as excited and is ready to incorporate the Fox properties. The biggest talk about this new acquisition is seeing Hugh Jackman's Wolverine joining the McU, but the actor has announced that he has officially retired from the role.

While Hugh Jackman is finished with the Wolverine role, that hasn't stopped fans from begging him to return. One of those fans is Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds, who is constantly trolling Jackman on social media about teaming up on the big screen.

BigRep’s 3D Printer Takes ‘First Man’ to the Moon
Production designer Nathan Crowley was strolling through the Brooklyn Navy Yard during the shoot for “The Greatest Showman” in fall 2016 when he passed a building with a 3D printer printing a chair.

“The lady inside told me it was a machine from BigRep,” recalls Crowley. “I said, ‘When’s the last time you had a filament jam?’ She said, ‘About a month ago.’ And I was like, ‘Ok, I need that machine.’”

Crowley didn’t get to use it for “The Greatest Showman,” but he rented two BigRep One models for his next film, director Damien Chazelle’s “First Man,” rounding out an arsenal of 18 3D printers used make everything from knobs and joysticks for the lunar module that puts Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) on the moon to a 14-foot-tall scale model of a Saturn V rocket.

The Dumbo Trailer Will Make You Tear Up - But What Else Would You Expect?

Disney is in the midst of remaking a ton of our favorite classics and among them is Dumbo, the tale of a baby elephant with ears so big he can fly. While many are unsure whether the classics need to be remade, there's no denying the new trailer for Dumbo looks as cute as it does entertaining.

This is guaranteed to be entertaining and heartwarming for both those enjoying the story for the first time, and those reliving a familiar tale from childhood.

‘Happy Death Day 2U’ and ‘Alita’ Unlikely to End Ongoing Box Office Slump

‘Happy Death Day 2U’ and ‘Alita’ Unlikely to End Ongoing Box Office Slump
With “The Lego Movie 2” suffering a very disappointing opening, the sluggish business that defined the start of the 2019 box office is now expected to continue through February, and this weekend’s new releases aren’t expected to change that, even if some of them find success on their own merits.

One film that could be such a hit is Universal/Blumhouse’s “Happy Death Day 2U,” the sequel to Christopher Landon’s 2017 horror film. In typical Blumhouse fashion, the film was made on a thrifty $9 million budget. Releasing on Wednesday on 3,000 screens, “2U” is projected for a six-day opening in the high $20 million range through Presidents’ Day.

Another lower-budget release that could find modest success is Warner Bros./New Line’s “Isn’t It Romantic,” a satire of romantic comedies starring Rebel Wilson that is projected for a six-day opening of $20-22 million from 3,700 screens.
