Disney Tightens Grip on 2019 Box Office as Other Franchises Struggle

  • The Wrap
With the 2019 box office approaching the halfway point, one thing is clear: It’s Disney’s world right now, and the rest of the film industry is just living in it.

After grossing over $3 billion annually in 2018 — the second time in three years it has done so — Disney entered 2019 with a murderer’s row of franchise titles that has paid off as expected. While the studio still suffered a misstep with “Dumbo,” which grossed only $287 million globally against a $170 million budget, it dominated the theatrical market with just four films: “Captain Marvel,” “Aladdin,” the recently released “Toy Story 4,” and the big one, “Avengers: Endgame.”

All four stand as the highest opening weekends of 2019, with “Toy Story 4” joining the club last weekend with a $120.9 million opening and “Endgame” leading with a record-shattering $357 million start. With $1.88 billion grossed so far this year, Disney accounts for 35% of the $5.31 billion total and

Review: ‘Outlaw King’ is a Bloody, Brutal Epic

Many know the tale of William Wallace, the Scottish knight who was a prominent leader in the First War of Scottish Independence, as portrayed by Mel Gibson in a wee film called Braveheart. Now, picture Wallace’s severed head hung from a monument in the town square. This is the atmosphere of Outlaw King, an epic set against the backdrop of a crippled Scotland itching for justice. Positioned as a long-gestating passion project for Scotsman helmer David Mackenzie, Outlaw King is a sincere war picture with ferocious violence and an inconsistent but righteously beating heart.

It’s 1304. King Edward I of England proclaims himself as Lord Paramount of Scotland, and Scottish nobility across the land are drawn into a reluctant agreement to pay taxes and kneel to a King crowned through coercion and war. Prominent among these taxed families is Robert the Bruce (Chris Pine), who is soon compelled into

Okay, stop sniggering. We’re better than that. I was, of course, referring to the recent brouhaha surrounding PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886 and its relatively short running time. For the uninitiated, mere days before the game launched to collective sighs around the globe, rumours hit the web that the game could be completed in as little as five hours. Gaming sites melted down, Internet arguments kicked off; it was, for lack of a better term, just another molehill turned mountain within the gaming industry… read the full article.

Stephen King’s Cell Movie Acquired for Us Distribution, New Image Revealed

  • DailyDead
Get ready stateside filmgoers, because the “phoners” (aka “crazies”) are coming to the Us. Stephen King fans know that the master of macabre doesn’t like using cell phones. His 2006 novel, Cell, is a cautionary tale about what can go wrong by pressing portable phones to our ears and keeping them close at hand in our pockets, and its unflinching subject matter contains flocks of murderous lunatics that would be right at home in Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later, George A. Romero’s The Crazies, or Simon Clark’s Blood Crazy.

We knew this unique King novel was getting the adaptation treatment, with King co-writing the screenplay and John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson in the lead roles, but we’re now one big step closer to seeing it on the silver screen, as Clarius Entertainment has acquired the Us rights to the movie.

17 moments of movie terror in the bathroom

From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...

Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.

The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”

Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and

Jurassic World’s Dino Hybrid Is A Force To Be Reckoned With

One of the key reasons as to why the first trailer for Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World proved to be so effective is the fact that the genetically-modified dinosaur turned out to be rather camera shy. Much like Steven Spielberg’s approach with Jaws, the park’s main attraction has been kept in the dark, though today we’ve learned more about the deadly hybrid, which is now known as the Indominus Rex — the “Fierce or Untameable King.”

Bigger, louder and with more teeth, the 40-foot-long predator is, for all intents and purposes, a force to be reckoned with. And to ramp up excitement for its summer tentpole, Universal released a detailed description of the dino via Jurassic World‘s official site.

We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered.
