‘Night School’ Collecting $27M-$29M In Weekend Tuition; ‘Smallfoot’ Leaving $20M+ Footprint
Early read here on Universal’s Night School which is tracking for a $9.5M opening day and a weekend that’s between $27M-$29M. While $30M would be a sweet take, that’s still an impressive number in these times for a comedy, Uni had the previous best opening this year with its R-rated teen pic Blockers at $20.6M.

Warner Bros. animated pic Smallfoot will own second with a $6M Friday (a few cents more than their 2016 Storks $5.7M opening day), and a three-day that’s between $20M and $22.5M. Two films in the final weekend of September, opening to $20M, seriously, exhibitors aren’t complaining especially with this month on track to be the second best ever with around $621M after last year’s record $698.5M.

Eddie Murphy, Tim Story Team For New Line Comedy Inspired By ‘Grumpy Old Men’

Eddie Murphy, Tim Story Team For New Line Comedy Inspired By ‘Grumpy Old Men’
Exclusive: New Line has attached Eddie Murphy to star, and Tim Story to direct and produce, an untitled comedy inspired by the hit Walter Matthau-Jack Lemmon comedy Grumpy Old Men. John Davis is producing through his Davis Entertainment banner. He produced the original.

In the 1983 comedy, two lifelong neighbors who’ve been feuding since childhood find their dislike for one another exacerbated by the presence of a new neighbor who leaves each of them smitten. Ann-Margret played the neighbor and Donald Petrie directed it. They haven’t gotten as far as figuring out who’ll play opposite Murphy, but I have heard Samuel L. Jackson’s name as an inspired idea. He and Story just wrapped Shaft.

Story will produce through his The Story Company banner, and The Story Company’s Sharla Sumpter Bridgett is also producing. Story has directed eight studio features and he became the first

CBS CEO Leslie Moonves, ‘Girls Trip’ Producer Will Packer to Keynote at TheGrill 2018

CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves and Will Packer, producer of blockbusters like “Ride Along” and “Girls Trip,” will headline the 2018 edition of TheGrill, TheWrap’s annual media and leadership summit.

The ninth annual event, which runs October 1-2 in Los Angeles, will consist of two days of hard-hitting conversations, high-level networking and industry icons discussing the convergence of content and technology — led by TheWrap founder and editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman.

Tickets are on sale at the early bird rate starting now until June 8.

Among the topics that will be in focus at the conference are new digital distribution models; cryptocurrency and blockchain technology in entertainment; subscription services in theatrical exhibition; the latest in virtual and augmented reality; fake news and the impact on the upcoming election.

Moonves will be the keynote interview in a year when CBS and Viacom are in the news for a pending potential merger. The chief executive has distinguished CBS as a producer and seller of world-class content across all mediums, helping CBS grow in value, revenue and market share while identifying and developing key new revenue streams for future growth.

Under Moonves’ direction, the CBS Television Network has been No. 1 in viewers for 14 of the last 15 years, and currently has television’s No. 1 comedy/scripted program, “The Big Bang Theory”; No. 1 new comedy, “Young Sheldon”; No. 1 primetime news program, “60 Minutes”; No. 1 late night show, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”; and No. 1 daytime drama, “The Young and the Restless.”

At the same time, the company’s premium cable service, Showtime Networks, has generated millions of new subscribers on the heels of its successful owned series, such as “Ray Donovan,” “Billions,” as well as the critically acclaimed, Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning series “Homeland.”

Packer has achieved unprecedented success with nine consecutive No. 1 films, and one of the most successful R-rated comedies of all time, last summer’s blockbuster “Girls Trip.“

As founder and CEO of Will Packer Media, Packer is leading a first-of-its-kind media company, producing episodic scripted and unscripted series across TV and digital platforms, compelling content for brand clients and its own operated platforms.

Also Read: Why 'Girls Trip' Succeeded Where 'Rough Night' and Other Adult Comedies Failed

Prior to founding Will Packer Media, the Emmy-nominated producer established himself as one of Hollywood’s blockbuster hit makers with nine of his films opening number one at the box office.

In 2013, Packer signed first-look production deals with Universal Pictures and Universal Television. Under both deals, he develops new projects for the studios under his Will Packer Productions banner. Packer’s No. 1 films include “Ride Along,” “Ride Along 2,” “No Good Deed,” “Think Like a Man” and “Stomp the Yard.”

Packer’s 2017 comedy, “Girls Trip,” had the best start for an R-rated comedy in two years, and grossed more than $100 million domestically. It was the first film to do so produced, directed, written by and star African Americans. In August 2015, he served as an executive producer on “Straight Outta Compton,” which grossed more than $201 million.

TheGrill leads the conversation on convergence between entertainment, media and technology, bringing together newsmakers to debate the challenges and opportunities facing content in the digital age. Diverse programming anchored by versatile talent and supported by big brands has always been the hallmark of Hollywood.

As technology brings new models to the fore — in production, distribution, display and monetization — TheGrill is a platform for the leaders, the deciders and the disruptors to explore this reconfigured landscape as it continues to transforms around us.

Basmati Blues movie review: like white savior on rice

MaryAnn’s quick take… Part hamfisted critique of Big Ag, part strained romantic comedy, and part insipid musical that’s not much like the Bollywood tribute it’s meant to be. An accidental parody of itself. I’m “biast” (pro): love Brie Larson; desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto) women’s participation in this film

(learn more about this)

A couple of white American guys — first-time director Dan Baron, who cowrote the script with Jeff Dorchen — decide to make a tribute to Bollywood musicals. What could possibly go wrong? Almost everything, as it turns outs. Basmati Blues has been sitting on a shelf for years, and it probably would have stayed there permanently if its star, Brie Larson, hadn’t skyrocketed to fame since.
