He also appeared in Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” in which he played the droid K-2So.

‘How to Train Your Dragon’ On Top Again as Annual Box Office Down 25 Percent

‘How to Train Your Dragon’ On Top Again as Annual Box Office Down 25 Percent
This weekend was a first for 2019: Two films grossed over $25 million, led by the second weekend of “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” and a better-than-expected opening for “A Madea Family Funeral.” That’s great news ahead of next weekend, when Disney’s “Captain Marvel” is expected to open over $100 million. Still, with the “Black Panther” performance in the comp, year-over-year performance remains at a staggering 25 percent down.

Dragon,” which surprised with its series-best domestic opening, fell 45 percent its second weekend, just about even with the previous release. It is at $375 million worldwide, with most countries now open. The DreamWorks Animation series is on its third distributor, so anything close to the previous success is particularly gratifying for the studio.

It’s the best second-weekend result this year, and the best second weekend for an animated release since “The Grinch” — and that’s with “Ralph Breaks the Internet,

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Wins Oscar for Best Animated Movie

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Wins Oscar for Best Animated Movie
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Sony took a big gamble in putting out another Spider-Man project with a twist. However, the gamble paid off extremely well. Right from the start, the animated movie was praised for its unique look and feel. Co-writer Phil Lord said that the aim was to make a living comic book pop on the screen, and according to audiences, and now the Academy Awards, he and the crew pulled it off.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ended up beating Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Mirai, and Ralph Breaks the Internet to get the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. The aforementioned titles were all worthy, but Spider-Verse pushed the boundaries of animation along with storytelling. Sony introduced the multiverse to the big screen and a whole lot of different versions of the iconic character, which has opened doors to tell a

While accepting the award, Lord celebrated what the representation in the movie meant for many. “When we hear that somebody’s kid was watching the movie and turned to them and said, ‘He looks like me,’ or ‘They speak Spanish like us,’ we feel like we already won.”

Sunday’s win capped a strong awards season run for the film, which won the top animated film honor at the Annies, Golden Globes, BAFTA and Producers Guild Awards. It’s one of the biggest awards to date for a title based on Marvel characters, along with “Big Hero 6,” which also won the animated feature trophy in 2015.

‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ Roars to Year’s Best Opening With $55 Million
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” has provided a bit of respite to movie theaters starving for moviegoers, as it has opened this weekend to a $55.5 million launch from 4,259 screens.

While “Captain Marvel” will likely beat that mark in two weeks, this start for the Universal/DreamWorks Animation release has blown by the $40.3 million start by “Glass” to become the best opening weekend of 2019 so far. Overseas, where the film has already made $216 million heading into this weekend, “The Hidden World” added $34.7 million for a $90.2 million estimated global weekend total and a global cume of just under $275 million.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ would be just the 3rd film to hand Pixar an Oscar loss in Best Animated Feature

Anyone can wear the mask, but not everyone can take down Pixar at the Oscars. Miles Morales can though. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is one of the safest bets of Oscar night, which means it would only be the third film to defeat a Pixar movie — in this case, “Incredibles 2” — in Best Animated Feature.

Since it was established 17 years ago, Best Animated Feature has been Pixar’s kingdom, amassing nine wins from 11 previous nominations with “Finding Nemo” (2003), “The Incredibles” (2004), “Ratatouille” (2007), “Wall-e” (2008), “Up” (2009), “Toy Story 3” (2010), “Brave” (2012), “Inside Out” (2015) and “Coco” (2017). Only one other studio, Pixar’s parent company, Disney, has multiple wins with three from 10 previous bids, for “Frozen” (2013), “Big Hero 6” (2014) and “Zootopia” (2015). Disney is in the race this year with “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”

Pixar’s two losses were for “Monsters, Inc” (2001), which fell to the behemoth that was “Shrek” the inaugural year of the award, and

2019 Oscars full list of nominations by film in the running at the 91st Academy Awards

2019 Oscars full list of nominations by film in the running at the 91st Academy Awards
Two films — “The Favourite” and “Roma” — head into Sunday’s Academy Awards with a leading 10 nominations each. Two more — “A Star is Born” and “Vice” — have eight nominations while “Black Panther” reaped a lucky seven bids. “BlacKkKlansman” follows with six while both “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” have five. All eight of these films include a Best Picture bid among their nominations haul.

But only four of them earned nominations for their directors. Before the Academy Awards expanded the Best Picture race in 2010, it was rare for a film to win that top prize without at least having its helmer nominated. But since then, it has happened once (with Ben Affleck and “Argo” in 2013).

That was one of the four recent years when one film won Best Picture but another claimed the directing award. Ang Lee collected the Best Director Oscar in 2013 for “Life of Pi.” The other splits were

Oscar Week: Co-Directors Explain How ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’

Chicago – The Best Animated Film category at the 91st Academy Awards honor both these visual treats and their status in the new Golden Age. The visual density of today’s animation reaches a new height in a rare Walt Disney Studio sequel, “Ralph Breaks the Internet.” This is a follow-up to “Wreck-It Ralph,” a huge animated hit film. Returning to guide the sequel, which has Wreck-It Ralph “inside” the internet, are co-directors Phil Johnston and Rich Moore.

Also returning for the sequel are a number of the voice actors and characters from the first film, including the saucy-tongued Vanellope (voiced by Sarah Silverman), Felix (Jack McBrayer), Calhoun (Jane Lynch) and John C. Reilly as Ralph. Joining them in this new outing is the new character of Shank (Gal Gadot). The story involves the arcade that Ralph and Vanellope live at (in their respective video games) and an accident that changes everything.

Review: ‘How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ is a Satisfying Final Chapter

It’s not often a studio as big as Dreamworks goes on record to say the third installment of a critically acclaimed series and box office success will be its last. Why paint yourself into a corner like that when the possibility for more is right at your fingertips? Dare I say the answer is integrity? That’s not a word you hear much in Hollywood, but I have to believe it’s the reasoning behind Dean DeBlois’ adaptation of Cressida Cowell’s How to Train Your Dragon. At a certain point the only reason to keep going is to cash in while the law of diminishing returns sets in quickly. So why not pump the brakes, iron out a thematically satisfying arc, and deliver a trilogy worth remembering?

Maybe it helps that this cinematic franchise has only been a “modest” hit at just over a billion dollars after two chapters.

2019 Mpse Golden Reel Awards: ‘A Quiet Place’ wins over Oscar frontrunner ‘First Man’

“A Quiet Place,” won the top prize, Sound Editing (Effects and Foley), at the Golden Reel Awards bestowed by the Motion Picture Sound Editors (Mpse) on Sunday. One of its Oscar rivals for Best Sound Editing, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” picked up up a pair of awards while another, “Roma,” won one (foreign language). “Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse” claimed both the animated and music awards.

The Oscar frontrunner in this below-the-line race, “First Man,” was shut out at these awards as was the fifth nominee, “Black Panther.” But fans of “First Man” should not be too disheartened. This guild’s track record at predicting the eventual winner at the Academy Awards is spotty.

Last year, all five of the Oscar nominees for Best Sound Editing numbered among the Mpse contenders. Eventual Oscar winner “Dunkirk” lost the category equivalent to “Blade Runner 2049.” The WWII epic did win for music over the sci-fi film.
