‘My Little Pony: Equestria Girls’ – To Be or Not to Be A Pony?

In 2013 Hasbro Studios did a pretty risky thing with one of their biggest franchises. They decided to take My Little Ponies and humanize them in a movie called My Little Pony: Equestria Girls. In that film one of the characters, Twilight Sparkles, discovers a mirror which allows her to travel into an alternate universe in order to recover a crown that was stolen from the Crystal Empire. Upon her arrival she is horrified to learn that she has turned into a human. This was a risky move for Hasbro because being magical ponies was their schtick.

Though there isn’t any four-legged characters walking around, I’m assuming it was a hit with the My Little Pony community because Hasbro decided to bring the Esquestria Girls back a few more times since. Now the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls have an all-new show which just premiered on Youtube. I had

‘My Little Pony: Equestria Girls’: Hasbro’s New Digital Series Is Magical and Musical

For the uninitiated (like yours truly), My Little Pony: Equestria Girls is going to take a bit of explanation. Once upon a time, My Little Pony was a cartoon that featured realistic-looking ponies meant to advertise Hasbro's toys meant for young girls. Before long, those pretty ponies changed into more cartoonish characters and included more mythical varieties, all anthropomorphized to carry out their magical adventures. In the 2000s, Mlp fans everywhere were introduced to Ponyville and the characters that populated it, while the 2010s introduced the smash-hit version, Friendship Is Magic. The ponies are still ponies in …

Emily Blunt, John Krasinski Stay Silent to Survive in Creepy ‘A Quiet Place’ Trailer

Emily Blunt, John Krasinski Stay Silent to Survive in Creepy ‘A Quiet Place’ Trailer
Silence equals survival in the first trailer for the supernatural horror film “A Quiet Place,” starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

The first footage, released on Thursday, shows a family of four living in the woods in a rundown house and using sign language. The tagline reads, “Listen closely, move carefully, and never make a sound. If they can’t hear you, they can’t hunt you.”

The trailer features a creepy wooden crucifix on a bridge, the family attempting to play Monopoly, and a fire starting when a lantern is knocked over.

Krasinski is directing from a script he wrote, revising the screenplay from Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, which the studio acquired prior to Krasinski and Blunt’s involvement.

Krasinski previously helmed “The Hollars” and “Brief Interviews With Hideous Men” in 2009. Michael Bay will produce along with his partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes. Krasinski and his Sunday Night Productions partner [link=nm

Kim Kardashian Reveals Her Daughter North Wants to Make YouTube Tutorials -- But Kanye West Isn't Having It
North West may love hamming it up for the camera, but her mom's Snapchats are the most social media exposure she's going to get for now.

In an interview with Wwd, Kim Kardashian West revealed that 4-year-old North hopes to follow in her mom's makeup-loving footsteps and take her talents to YouTube.

"The other day, it was so funny. My daughter watches so many YouTube tutorials and videos," Kardashian recalled. "She was unboxing the My Little Pony ColourPop collection, and I thought to myself, 'I wish I was recording this,' because her reaction was so funny."

"And then she did makeup on the My Little Pony that they gave and she said, 'Mom, I want to do a YouTube video,'" she said.

North's dad put the kibosh on that idea quick, but Kardashian explained that they let her record videos for herself.

North West Wants to Start Creating Makeup Videos on YouTube, But Kanye Won't Have It
In less than six months, Kim Kardashian created a beauty empire.

The makeup mogul’s Kkw Beauty cream contour kits initially sold out (and made her $14 million) after only three hours and her latest innovation — three gardenia-based fragrances, which launch tomorrow — have already created a ton of buzz online. She’s joined multiple beauty gurus on YouTube for tutorials using her products, becoming a beauty influencer in her own right. And though it would be hard to top everything she’s already accomplished in the beauty space, it appears that her 4-year-old daughter North West is already hot on her heels.

My Little Pony: the serious side to singing pastel ponies

Anna Dobbie Nov 1, 2017

As the My Little Pony movie plays in cinemas, why there's lots going on behind the bright colours...

A spoiler for The Never Ending Story lies ahead.

My Little Pony fans have a tough ride. There’s a sweet spot for pre-teen girls where it’s just about socially acceptable to love the brightly coloured dream-horses, but after that, you start to get sideways looks when you walk slightly too slowly down the toy aisle in Tesco. Trust me, I know.

Male fans have it even worse, with any interest assumed to be sexual – either an indication of homosexuality or a cartoon bestiality fetish with disturbingly paedophilic overtones. Such a gendered reaction to a show featuring six female protagonists that preaches acceptance and love is an unfortunate reflection of toxic masculinity seeping into all stages of life. It’s sad that, to some, these conclusions are more

My Little Pony: The Movie review

Here's our review of the My Little Pony movie, that's now in UK cinemas...

To describe My Little Pony: The Movie as anything other than a sensory overload would be a severe injustice. Combining every single colour humanly possible, it is an incessant upbeat bravado that would make Disney feel uneasy. My Little Pony: The Movie is a discombobulating 89-minute feature that leads to a near fatal saccharine overdose once its musically vibrant credits finally roll. Currently in their 'fourth generation', Hasbro’s candy coloured ponies have trotted into cinemas, just in time to save youngsters from half term boredom.

The colourful equestrian franchise has radically evolved since its initial release way back in the 1980s. Fast forward nearly 40 years and this worldwide phenomenon has spawned countless arrays of merchandise, several TV incarnations and now a big-shot feature film. Upon its hugely successful revival in 2010 the magical ponyverse has won

Toy Company Hasbro is Attempting to Create a Full-Fledged Movie Studio

Hasbro owns a lot of media properties. Furthermore, a fair number of those media properties possess the potential to be turned into successful movies. For proof, look no further than the Transformers franchise, which has managed to earn hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office in spite of the fact that none of the movies have met with a positive reception from the movie critics. Besides Transformers, other Hasbro media properties of note include but are not limited to G.I. Joe, My Little Pony, and Dungeons & Dragons, some of which are in their prime while others are

‘Happy Death Day’ Smells Sweet at Weekend Box Office

‘Happy Death Day’ Smells Sweet at Weekend Box Office
Horror flick “Happy Death Day” (Universal) easily topped the weekend. The latest production from prolific horror supplier Blumhouse ranked below their early year openers “Get Out” and “Split,” but $26.5 million for a movie with a $5-million production budget marks an instant success.

While some of the Blumhouse aura has been overshadowed by the massive success of Warner Bros.Stephen King juggernaut “It,” that shouldn’t take away producer Jason Blum’s mastery at consistently packaging original low-budget smash hits.

Happy Death Day” is a bit lower-profile than other recent Blum house efforts, but it still landed some respectable mainstream reviews. That’s a big change from how the genre has been treated in recent years.

Happy Death Day Takes the Box Office with $26.5M

Happy Death Day Takes the Box Office with $26.5M
This weekend marked the start of a rather overcrowded few weeks at the box office, with 13 new movies opening over the next three weeks. Four newcomers hit theaters this weekend, with two failing to crack the top 10, although the Blumhouse thriller Happy Death Day cracking the top spot with $26.5 million, easily dethroning last weekend's winner, Blade Runner 2049, which dropped to second place this weekend with $15.1 million, dropping 53.9% in its second box office weekend. The movie certainly performed better than expected this weekend, while the rest of the field most certainly did not.

Happy Death Day, the millennial slasher movie from Blumhouse, has already earned more than three times its $4.8 million budget, becoming just the latest low-budget hit from producer Jason Blum's company this year. Jason Blum has also produced M. Night Shyamalan's Split, which took in $278.3 million worldwide from a $9 million budget, and Get Out, which earned $253.1 million from a $4.9 million budget.

Box Office: ‘Happy Death Day’ Crushes ‘Blade Runner 2049’ With $26.5 Million

Box Office: ‘Happy Death Day’ Crushes ‘Blade Runner 2049’ With $26.5 Million
Happy Death Day” has cause for celebration.

The latest from Blumhouse and Universal is leading the box office this weekend with $26.5 million from 3,149 locations. That puts it far ahead of “Blade Runner 2049,” which is skidding to $15.1 million during its second weekend at 4,058 locations, down 54% from its disappointing opening weekend.

A horror spin on “Groundhog Day,” “Happy Death Day” centers on Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) as a woman who wakes up to the same day — her birthday — every day, and is murdered every time. Christopher B. Landon directed the film based on a script by Scott Lobdell. The film, which earned a B CinemaScore (good for a horror flick), particularly appealed to female and younger moviegoers — the audience was split 54% female, as opposed to 46% male, and 63% was under age 25. The release date was pegged to Friday the 13th and the weeks leading up to Halloween.

“We’re obviously thrilled with the release,” said Universal

Blumhouse Makes a Wish for Another #1 Opener with 'Happy Death Day'

Blumhouse Makes a Wish for Another #1 Opener with 'Happy Death Day'
It's been a good year for Blumhouse Productions so far with Get Out and Split delivering impressive returns on minuscule budgets. This weekend their latest, Happy Death Day, hopes to follow suit as it targets a #1 finish, pushing WB's Blade Runner 2049 into runner-up position after just one week in theaters. Additional new releases include Stx's The Foreigner, Annapurna's Professor Marston & the Wonder Women and Open Road's Marshall as there's a little something for everyone in theaters, though it doesn't appear that little something will deliver big numbers at the box office collectively. On the heels of a very strong year so far, Blumhouse brings Happy Death Day to 3,149 theaters nationwide. The film takes the Groundhog Day concept and turns it into a horror film with Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones director, Christopher Landon, at the helm. Industry expectations are for a debut in the mid-teens, though we're anticipating a result just a bit higher.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Box Office Carnage: Sony and Ryan Gosling Stand to Lose, but Roger Deakins Still Stands to Win

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Box Office Carnage: Sony and Ryan Gosling Stand to Lose, but Roger Deakins Still Stands to Win
It could have been worse: The final domestic weekend totals for “Blade Runner 2049” came to $32.7 million, about $1.25 million better than initial pre-Sunday estimates. That could mean all is not lost for Warner Bros. — but with production, marketing, and distribution around $300 million, it’s still a dreadful result. Who stands to suffer the most? Here are some losers — and, some possible winners.

Alcon Entertainment and Sony

Alcon, the 20 year-old production company founded by FedEx’s Fred Smith, has produced 31 films, with one big moneymaker (“The Blind Side”), some smaller successes (“Dude, Where’s My Car?,” “P.S. I Love You,” “Insomnia”) and several higher-budget flops (“Transcendence,” “Point Break”).

Its total investment in “Blade Runner 2049” isn’t totally clear. Sony is reported to have contributed $90 million for international rights, with its share of marketing expenses uncertain. So Alcon will neither bear the entire expense nor keep all the revenues, but it

Will Happy Death Day Behead Blade Runner at the Box Office?

Will Happy Death Day Behead Blade Runner at the Box Office?
It seems that Blade Runner 2049 couldn't continue the fall hot streak at the box office. Last month, it seemed that the slumping summer months were cured by It's record breaking opening weekend, and while that has gone on to become the highest-grossing horror movie of all time, and one of this year's highest-grossing movies, it seemed to be just a temporary solution to the industry's box office woes. Last weekend, the highly-anticipated Blade Runner 2049 underperformed and opened with just $32.7 million, just one fifth of its $150 million budget, signalling that studios may be in for a tough month until Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters in November. Four new movies hit theaters this weekend, and while we're projecting that Blade Runner 2049 will come out on top with a repeat win, the race will likely be a lot closer than it should have been.

Blade Runner 2049 goes up against four new movies this weekend,

Box Office Weekend: Blade Runner 2049 Takes Over Box Office

Although it debuted with over $32 million and held the top spot for the weekend box office, the thirty-five years in the making sequel Blade Runner 2049, fell south of the film’s $45-$55 million expectations. Despite mostly positive reviews, the film may have a long climb to ensure that it’s a domestic hit.

The survival epic The Mountain Between Us, starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba finished in second-place with $10.1 million, just edging out the Stephen King adaptation It, which brought in another $10 million in its fifth week of release, to bring its domestic total to $305.2 million. The animated My Little Pony: The Movie debuted with $8.8 million. Elsewhere, Kingsman: The Golden Circle added another $8.1 million to its three-week total of $80 million to close out this week’s top film.

The Tom Cruise-led American Made brought in considerably less in it’s second-week of release, $8.1 million this week compared to $22.3 million last week.
