Cineworld to Install ScreenX in 100 Cinemas

Multinational cinema operator Cineworld Group is to install Korean-developed ScreenX technology at 100 theaters in the U.S., U.K., and eight other international locations.

The kit, which uses projections on the side walls of the auditorium to create a 270-degree viewing experience, is developed and marketed by Cj 4DPlex, part of South Korea’s Cj Group.

Cineworld has previously partnered with Cj 4Dplex, to open up to 145 4Dx locations across the U.S and Europe. This marks an additional increment of 99 screens from the already existing 46 locations spread throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Hollywood studios are increasingly converting and adding supplementary material to their films for ScreenX presentation. Last year there were three: “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” and “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” New ScreenX titles being released by major studios in 2018 include “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” “The Nun,

Angelina Jolie And Elle Fanning Goof Around In First Maleficent II Set Photo

While the dark sorceress received mixed reviews for her first big screen solo outing, 2014’s Maleficent did have a rather impressive run at the box office, ranking as the fourth highest-grossing release of that year. So, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that production is very much underway for Maleficent II, the sequel to Disney’s live action revisionist take on the classic Sleeping Beauty antagonist.

Naturally, the eponymous dark fairy will be once more played by Angelina Jolie, whose commanding performance in the first Maleficent impressed even the film’s detractors. Elle Fanning will also be returning as Princess Aurora, and earlier today, the actress shared a new set photo on Instagram, showing herself and Jolie having some fun.

“It’s bring your mom to work day on the #Maleficent2 set!!!!!” reads the caption to Fanning’s selfie, which features Jolie posing in the background while donning Maleficent’s trademark horns,

Why ‘Solo’ Could Be the First ‘Star Wars’ Box-Office Bomb

Why ‘Solo’ Could Be the First ‘Star Wars’ Box-Office Bomb
The thrill is gone. After more than four decades and nine releases, the “Star Wars” franchise has come a cropper with an $83 million opening-weekend estimate, with Memorial Day four-day figures likely to top $100 million. Granted, that’s a better take for the holiday than any release since 2014. But since when has “Star Wars” releases needed recent comparisons on the second-biggest release date in May in order to look good?

No one was expecting a challenge to all-time openings: “Solo: A Star Wars Story” falls outside the main franchise storyline and faces competition in a top-heavy blockbuster period. Still, the most pessimistic guess was $105 million for the four-day period, with $115 million considered a more likely low-end result.

We anticipated some reasons for the lower guesses. But this even-weaker total suggests that all the possible excuses came to pass — a troubled production history, mediocre early reaction, too much competition, too many Star Wars films in close proximity.

‘Solo’ Heads to Opening Below Forecasts Over Memorial Day Weekend

‘Solo’ Heads to Opening Below Forecasts Over Memorial Day Weekend
Disney-Lucasfilm’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story” is flying well below forecasts, heading for a Memorial Day weekend launch of around $110 million domestically, early estimates showed Friday.

The four-day figure is significantly under the studio’s recent estimates in the $130 million to $150 million range at 4,380 North American locations. First-day grosses are coming in at about $32 million — including $14.1 million from previews, which set a Memorial Day weekend record.

Should the holiday estimate hold for “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” it will raise questions about franchise fatigue and Disney’s strategy of opening the tentpole a mere five months after “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” debuted on Dec. 16. “The Last Jedi” debuted impressively with $220 million in North America, and went on to earn $620 million domestically and $1.3 billion worldwide.

“Solo” is the 10th Star Wars movie and fourth from Disney in less than four years. Critics have been mostly positive with a current 70% “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes for “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

At $110 million, “Solo” would be only the sixth-biggest film to open on Memorial Day weekend. Disney’s 2007 release “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” currently holds that title with $139.8 million, followed by “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull,” “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “Fast and Furious 6,” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

Box Office: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Flies to $14.1 Million on Thursday

Box Office: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Flies to $14.1 Million on Thursday
Disney’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story” has launched domestically with an impressive $14.1 million on Thursday night — a Memorial Day weekend record.

The tentpole has been forecast to lift off with $130 million to $150 million at 4,380 sites during the four-day Memorial Day weekend.

The preview number exceeds the previous $13.2 million record held by “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” in 2007. It’s slightly behind the $14.5 millions from “Thor: Ragnarok” which finished the three-day weekend with $122.7 million in November.

Solo” follows Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo, who befriends his future co-pilot and Wookiee companion Chewbacca, and meets the gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Paul Bettany, Joonas Suotamo, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge round out the cast.

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Blasts to Record $14.1 Million at Thursday Box Office

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Blasts to Record $14.1 Million at Thursday Box Office
Solo: A Star Wars Story” earned $14.1 million at the Thursday box office, breaking the Memorial Day record that was previously held by “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” which grossed $13.2 million in previews.

In comparison, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” earned $45 million when it opened in previews last year, while “The Force Awakens” grossed $57 million and “Rogue One” rocketed to $29 million. “At World’s End” earned a total $139.8 million, a four-day record, in 2007.

Solo: A Star Wars Story” is expected to break the record for the biggest four-day opening on Memorial Day weekend with at least $140 million. However, a $140 million opening for “Solo” would be the lowest opening total for a Disney-released “Star Wars” film.

‘Solo’ Aims to Send Memorial Day Box Office Into Hyperspace

‘Solo’ Aims to Send Memorial Day Box Office Into Hyperspace
There’s nothing like a little “Star Wars” to help turn low numbers around: “Solo: A Star Wars Story” is expected to break the record for the biggest four-day opening on Memorial Day weekend with at least $140 million.

And with the staying power of “Deadpool 2” and “Avengers: Infinity War,” the combined weekend box office could climb into the top five Memorial Day weekends of all time.

That’s a huge leap from last year, when the box office suffered the worst Memorial Day weekend results since the turn of the century, as “Baywatch” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” failed to draw many moviegoers.

Despite its record-breaking weekend potential, a $140 million opening for “Solo” would be the lowest opening total for a Disney-released “Star Wars” film — and will still be enough to break the Memorial Day Weekend record set by “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,
