Officially launching in September, the company is in discussions about first movies on the slate. I understand there are also advanced conversations with at least one other established sales and finance outfit who could join the Blue Finch fold.

Kristin Burr is producing the movie, which has been in the works since 2015. Executive producers are John G. Scotti, Julia Pistor and Eugenio Derbez, who is also co-starring along with Micke Moreno, Nicholas Coombe, Madeleine Madden, Adriana Barraza and Temuera Morrison.

Production companies are Paramount Players, Nickelodeon and Walden Media. The animated “Dora the Explorer” television series ran on Nickelodeon from 2000-2014 for eight seasons with 172 episodes aired.

As with other groundbreaking films featuring diverse casts, tracking projections underestimated the opening weekend — the same thing that happened with “Black Panther,” “Wonder Woman,” “Girls Trip,” “Coco,” and others over the last few years.
Estimating the opening haul for any film is an inexact science, part market research and part gut feeling. Films with black, female, Asian-American, or Latino leads — groups grossly underrepresented in Hollywood — can be even harder to predict because of the lack of comparable films, or comps, some box office trackers say. Of course, studios are also conservative in their estimates, eager to not look bad by over-shooting the potential opening number.
One thing tracking can’t take into account for films like “Black Panther” and “Crazy Rich Asians” is concerted
Albert Hughes’ “Alpha” tells the story of the first wolf who became man’s best friend, in a film that could have been cheap and saccharine — like so many dog films before — but instead feels almost, but not entirely, mythic.
“Alpha” stars Kodi Smit-McPhee (“X-Men: Apocalypse”) as Keda, a teenage caveman from thousands of years ago, whose father Tau is chief of their tribe. Keda is about to embark on his first hunt, and along the way earns his tattoo of the Big Dipper (which might be important later) but also earns scorn for his inability to kill a captured boar.

“See, we’re British, we don’t really get it,” Corden said before the “Doctor Who” alum jumped in to say, “It’s not a holiday! It’s not a holiday. It’s a day, it passes. Everyone gets dressed up.”
The “Dog Days” actress doubled down, saying it’s not just a “holiday” but a “season” — and that doesn’t go over too well either.

Ads placed for the drama had an estimated media value of $5.08 million through Sunday for 1,589 national ad airings on 45 networks. (Spend figures are based on estimates generated from Aug. 6-12. Estimates may be updated after the chart is posted as new information becomes available.) Columbia prioritized spend across networks such as ABC, Discovery and Nick, and during programming including SpongeBob SquarePants, Naked and Afraid and America’s Got Talent.
Just behind “Alpha” in second place: Warner Bros.’ “The Meg,” which saw 830 national ad airings across 50 networks, with an estimated media value of $3.25 million.
TV ad placements for Ld Entertainment’s “Dog Days” (Emv: $3.17 million), Focus Features’ “BlacKkKlansman” ($2.94 million) and Warner Bros.’ “Crazy Rich Asians” ($2.85 million) round out the chart.
Opening more narrowly (1512 screens) and performing ahead of predictions was Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” (Focus) at just under $11 million.
And there’s other positive news: the weekend totaled about $145 million, about a quarter higher than last year, with year-to-date grosses 8.7 percent ahead of 2017. Add to that a rash of strong holdovers led by “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” (Paramount), which is headed for an over $200 million domestic total.
“The Meg” is the first non-franchise film to place #1 since “A Quiet Place” in April. That is the longest stretch in movie release history for sequels and series films to grab the top spot. Of course, a shark-centered thriller isn’t exactly the hallmark of originality. “47 Meters Down” two years ago,
August 13 Update: The Meg took no prisoners in its North American debut, beating projections that put the film opening in the $20m range to devour the competition on a confirmed $45.4m launch that tore past Mission: Impossible – Fallout in its third session.
The giant shark thriller starring Jason Statham and Li Bingbing launched in 4,118 theatres through Warner Bros, while Tom Cruise fell 45.2% and one slot to number two, adding $19.4m for $161.3m via Paramount. Despite strong reviews, the latest instalment remains the second-lowest release in the six-film spy action franchise.
Warner Bros.’ big-budget shark thriller opened well above expectations, biting off $44.5 million when it opened in 4,118 North American locations. That was easily enough to nab the No. 1 slot over “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” which picked up $20 million in its third outing for a domestic tally of $162 million.
“The Meg,” which is a co-production with China, will still have to secure big returns overseas to justify its expensive $130 million production budget. It’s not quite in the black yet, but it’s off to a good start given a $96.8 million international tally, including a strong $50 million in the Middle Kingdom. Imax screens accounted for $13.6 million of “The Meg’s” $141.3 million global total.
With $44.5 million, “The Meg” secured the best opening of the year for Warner Bros., ahead of “Ready Player One” ($41.7 million) and “Ocean’s 8” ($41.6 million).

The estimate is significantly higher than earlier predictions, which had placed the film in the $20 million to $22 million frame. The Warner Bros. film took in $16.5 million on Friday and stars Jason Statham as a scientist who, along with his team, tries to stop a prehistoric 75-foot Megalodon shark from terrorizing a beach.
Jon Turtletaub directed “The Meg,” which has received mixed reviews from critics and carries a 50% score on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is based on the 1997 book “Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror” by Steve Alten and was in development for over two decades.
“The Meg” is a co-production with China’s Gravity and carries a $150 million price tag, so it will need substantial overseas business. It’s also opening in China,
“The Meg,” starring Jason Statham and a 75-foot prehistoric shark, is over-performing forecasts, which had been pegged in the $20 million to $22 million range. The movie — which has been in development for two decades — generated a solid $4 million in Thursday night previews, double what “Skyscraper” took last month on its way to a $24 million opening weekend.
Paramount’s third weekend of “Mission: Impossible — Fallout” is declining about 57% to the $17 million range to finish second. Disney’s second weekend of “Christopher Robin” and the launch of Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” will be battling for third in the $11 million to $13 million range, followed by Sony’s debut of horror movie “Slender Man” with about $10 million.

Ads placed for the fantasy film had an estimated media value of $4.28 million through Sunday for 1,074 national ad airings on 34 networks. (Spend figures are based on estimates generated from July 30 through Aug. 5. Estimates may be updated after the chart is posted as new information becomes available.) Walt Disney prioritized spend across networks such as NBC, Nick and Hgtv, and during shows including The Loud House, SpongeBob SquarePants and America’s Got Talent.
Just behind “Christopher Robin” in second place: Lionsgate’s “The Spy Who Dumped Me,” which saw 710 national ad airings across 24 networks, with an estimated media value of $3.95 million.
TV ad placements for Ld Entertainment’s “Dog Days” (Emv: $3.89 million), Columbia Pictures’ “Alpha” ($3.7 million) and Stx Entertainment
Meanwhile, Sony’s horror movie “Slender Man” launched with $1 million at 2,109 sites in previews. Focus Features did not release numbers for Spike Lee’s crime drama “BlacKkKlansman.”
Warner Bros.’ “The Meg,” starring Jason Statham, has been forecast to finish in the $20 million to $22 million range at 4,118 domestic sites during its opening weekend. That may be enough to take first place away from the third frame of Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible — Fallout,” which has hauled a strong $138.6 million domestically in its first 13 days.
“The Meg,” directed by Jon Turteltaub, is based on Steve Alten’s 1997 book, “Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror.” The story follows efforts by scientists — played by Statham, Li Bingbing, Winston Chao, and Ruby Rose — to stop a prehistoric 75-foot Megalodon shark from terrorizing a beach in China.
“The Meg” is a co-production with China
