Box Office: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Dominates With $40 Million

5 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Spy comedy “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is heading for a solid $40 million opening weekend at 4,003 North American sites, estimates showed Saturday.

The third weekend of horror blockbuster “It” continues to scare up impressive business with a projected $30 million at 4,007 locations, followed by the launch of Warner Bros.’ animated comedy “The Lego Ninjago Movie” with about $21 million at 4,047 locations — well under recent forecasts. Still, with three films over $20 million, the overall box office represents a continued rebound for the movie business following a dismal late summer.

Independent horror movie “Friend Request” is showing little traction in its launch weekend with an estimated $2.2 million at 2,550 venues. Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Stronger,” a biopic on Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, is opening with a moderate $1.6 million at 574 sites for Roadside Attractions.

Fox’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is performing in line with expectations, two years after “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” The sequel brings back original stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth »

Judge Denies Director’s Bid to Seize and Destroy ‘The Professor and the Madman’

21 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A judge on Friday denied director Farhad Safinia’s request to seize and destroy a producer’s cut of “The Professor and the Madman,” the Mel Gibson film about the Oxford English Dictionary.

Safinia says he was thrown off the film after Voltage Pictures refused his request to shoot five additional days at Oxford University. He filed a lawsuit accusing Voltage of defamation and copyright infringement, and asked for a restraining order to block Voltage from shopping the film to distributors.

But in her ruling Friday, Judge Consuelo Marshall rejected the request, saying Safinia had not demonstrated a likelihood of prevailing on the merits of the dispute. Safinia claims that he owns the copyright to the September 2016 version of the screenplay, and that he never subsequently assigned the rights to Voltage.

Voltage counters that Safinia had already given up his copyright to earlier drafts of the film’s screenplay under a “work made for hire” agreement, and »

Order Within The Chaos: Darren Aronofsky’s Cinematic Obsessions

30 minutes ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Darren Aronofsky has more or less become a cinematic fixture within the last decade. The writer/director is an intense filmmaker whose stories are as expansive as his style; an Aronofsky spectrum. Cinephiles and film goers alike are voicing their reactions for his latest film, “mother!” and that reception is basically a binary explosion of opinion on social media. You either adore it or detest it, or are just completely baffled by what Aronofsky has put on screen.

‘1922’ Review: ‘The Shining’ Meets ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ in the Year’s Most Impressive Stephen King Adaptation — Fantastic Fest

1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Netflix-produced “1922” has jolts of violence and sweeping period details, but in a year overrun with Stephen King adaptations, it’s also the simplest of them: “It” features a ludicrous shapeshifting clown, “The Dark Tower” is an inter-dimensional sci-fi western fantasy, and “Gerald’s Game” has kinky sex gone wrong and a giant goal. In “1922,” a guy kills his wife and feels guilty about it. That’s the gist of its premise, and while nothing groundbreaking, the story mines a degree of profundity out of the traditional supernatural thriller tropes at its core.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Behind-The-Scenes Clips Take Us to a Stylized Future

1 hour ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Blade Runner 2049 is getting closer and closer to its release date, yet much of the film is still shrouded in secrecy. In an era where most high-profile films have almost their entire plot-lines spoiled before they hit theaters, it’s fairly impressive that director Denis Villeneuve and company have managed to play things so close to […]

‘Jane’ Trailer: Brett Morgen’s Acclaimed Jane Goodall Doc Has Adorable Monkeys, Which Is Really All You Need to Know — Watch

1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

National Geographic has released the trailer for “Jane,” one of the most acclaimed documentaries of the Toronto International Film Festival — and potentially the year. Brett Morgen’s film about Jane Goodall was described by IndieWire’s Kate Erbland as “the definitive portrait of Goodall, one that is also remarkably accessible and almost unbearably tender.” Also, there are monkeys, so what are you waiting for?

Here’s the synopsis: “‘Jane’ is the story of how Jane Goodall became Jane Goodall – using footage shot by future husband Hugo van Lawick of her first experiences in Gombe, Tanzania in the 1960s. Previously thought to be lost forever, the footage was only recently discovered in a storage unit, and has been now masterfully intercut with interviews of present day Jane Goodall to provide an in-depth portrait of her life. »

‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ Review: The Christmas Zombie Musical You Didn’t Know You Needed

1 hour ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ladies and gentleman, we’ve got a new cult classic on our hands. Sometimes you can just tell; you see a movie that does something new, riles up the audience, and you know this one is destined for cult status. This time, that film is Anna and the Apocalypse, John McPhail’s jaunty, toe-tapping musical, which plays a bit like a High School Musical Christmas special violently interrupted by the zombie apocalypse. Ella Hunt stars as Anna — a knockout performance that establishes the young talent as a bonafide star in the making. Hollywood take note, this lady's got … »

‘Spielberg’ Trailer: The Master Filmmaker Goes In Front Of The Camera

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A master filmmaker (and no, this isn’t an argument), director Steven Spielberg has been turning out modern movie classics for decades and has contributed dozens of unimpeachable treasures to cinema. Movies will be unimaginably poorer the day he is gone. Opinions may vary on just what film is the best Spielberg film, from the landmark action adventure film “Raiders of the Lost Ark” to pictures that have reinvented the way “monster movies” are presented with “Jaws” and “Jurassic Park,” to his more dramatic and weighty films movies such as “Schindler’s List,” “Saving Private Ryan” “Bridge of Spies” and “Lincoln.

‘Twin Peaks’: Kyle MacLachlan Takes James Corden Inside the Red Room on ‘The Late Late Show’ — Watch

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What year is this? That’s just one of the questions James Corden must have found himself asking last night on “The Late Late Show” when he found his guest, one Kyle MacLachlan, had somehow managed to turn the green room red à la everyone’s favorite interdimensional hub in “Twin Peaks.”

Corden initially thinks it’s a joke, of course: “This must have taken you a while, huh?” he asks his guest. Channeling his inner Coop — or Dougie, or Evil Coop, or Richard — MacLachlan responds to all of his host’s queries backwards. Corden tries to do likewise, but finds himself unable to replicate that unique skill; he’s even more freaked out when they’re joined by Judi Dench, who also seems to have been hanging out with the Man From Another Place. »

Brace Your Emotional Sink: There Might Be A ‘mother!’ Opera

2 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky has most definitely become the most hunted man in movie culture this last week. His controversial “mother!” has caused a volcanic stir in the mainstream by bewildering, provoking and flat-out infuriating movie audiences nationwide (and some media to boot) with its non-conventional narrative, shocking images and frustrating loop of a story.

That’s fine, adventurous moviegoers have mostly appreciated what Aronofsky went for in the film; it’s hard for any of us to really complain about a studio movie taking the kind of risks “mother!” does even if you think it subjectively fails.
