Is Pixar's Coco the Box Office Savior Hollywood Has Been Hoping For?

Is Pixar's Coco the Box Office Savior Hollywood Has Been Hoping For?
The first weekend in December is often one that falls through the cracks, and last weekend's winner, Disney Pixar's Coco, looks to take full advantage of that. This frame is often forgotten, since it falls between the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and either the prestige Oscar candidates or the final big-budget blockbusters that arrive over the holiday season, and this year is no different, with no movies opening in wide release, although there are a slew of movies arriving in limited release, such as Parade Deck Films' Another WolfCop, Epic Pictures' Badsville, Well Go USA's Brotherhood of Blades 2, Hannover House's Daisy Winters, A24 Films' The Disaster Artist, Cinedigm Entertainment's Gangster Land, Zorya Films' Inoperable, the independent Kepler's Dream, Fox Searchlight's The Shape of Water, Vertical Entertainment's Slumber, Well Go USA's The Swindlers, IFC's Tribes of Palos Verdes and Amazon Studios' Wonder Wheel. With no wide release contenders, Coco

Will Blade Runner 2049 Be a Bigger Bomb Than Alien: Covenant?

Will Blade Runner 2049 Be a Bigger Bomb Than Alien: Covenant?
Do modern audiences care about Blade Runner 2049? Or do millennials, who make up a majority of the box office, consider it a boring relic from a bygone era? That's tough to discern in today's constantly changing market place. With pop culture shifting faster than it ever has before, it's hard to discern where the movie will eventually land with audiences. Right now, it's targeting a $40 million opening weekend. Some are calling that strong, but it's not much more than Alien: Covenant made on its dismal opening weekend, pulling in $36 million.

It may be hard to remember now, but before Alien: Covenant opened, there was a real excitement for the movie. Fans and critics alike wanted to see what Ridley Scott would do when he Really returned to the world of Alien after the somewhat disappointing Prometheus. It was supposed to be the true Alien prequel. Then the first critics saw it,

Blade Runner 2049 Targets Strong $40M Box Office Debut
It's been 35 years in the making, but things are looking good for Blade Runner 2049. This represents one of the longest gaps in history between sequels, which also makes it a risky one. Early indication is that the risk is going to pay off, as the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic Blade Runner is set to have a solid opening weekend at the box office.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Blade Runner 2049 is currently tracking for a debut of $40 million or more when it arrives in theaters on October 6. The original Blade Runner has gone on to become one of the most respected sci-fi movies in the history of cinema, but it was a complete bomb at the time of its release. Blade Runner only made $32 million in total during its run at the box office in 1982, so Blade Runner 2049 will have already outgrossed its predecessor within its first weekend.

Thor: Ragnarok tops Justice League as most anticipated movie of the fall

With the summer movie season over, Fandango has unveiled the results of its poll to find the most anticipated films of Fall 2017, with Marvel Studios’ cosmic superhero sequel Thor: Ragnarok fending off competition from Warner Bros.’ DC team-up Justice League to top the list.

“Moviegoers always look forward to the fall season when some of the year’s best films debut,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “This year there’s an especially diverse slate full of a little something for everyone. Thor: Ragnarok claims the most anticipated title, thanks to the overwhelming momentum and excitement the Marvel Studios brand has built up over the years, plus fans can’t wait to see more of Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, as well as Cate Blanchett and Tessa Thompson in new-to-the-franchise roles.”

Chris Hemsworth was also named Most Anticipated Actor, while Gal Gadot – coming off the huge success of this summer’s

Lengthy Runtime For Blade Runner 2049 Revealed; Prequel Film Is All About Jared Leto’s Replicant Creator

True to his word, director Denis Villeneuve has pulled no punches during the creation of Blade Runner 2049.

A student of science fiction after his Oscar-nominated work on Arrival – not to mention his involvement in Legendary’s long-in-development Dune reboot – Villeneuve has long made it clear that he hopes to honor Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi classic with the release of 2049, and the newly-unveiled prequel film, 2036: Nexus Dawn, helps fill the gap between one Blade Runner movie and the next.

And though it’s impossible to gauge a film’s quality based on its running time, we’re learning that Blade Runner 2049 will clock in at a whopping two hours and 32 minutes, plus another 11 minutes for credits. For the sake of comparison, that’s 35 minutes longer than the 1982 classic, which tapped out at one hour and 57 minutes.

Blade Runner 2049 Continues To Mesmerize With Two TV Spots

Warner Bros. has today summoned two tantalizing TV spots for Blade Runner 2049 that bring answers and a whole lotta’ questions.

Whisking viewers off to far-future Los Angeles, each promo serves up a haunting peek at Denis Villeneuve’s long-in-development sequel. It’s the follow-up to Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi classic of ’84, so it’ll be interesting to see how 2049 fares in two months’ time. Will it be good enough to honor the Blade Runner name? Or, in the worst case scenario, will Villeneuve’s stunningly beautiful effort be written off as yet another unnecessary sequel? Time will tell.

If nothing else, Blade Runner 2049 is shaping up to be a feast for the eyes. From the skyscraping advertisements for Atari – yes, in the warped future of 2049, business is booming for the dormant video game giant – to the purple glow illuminating the face of Ryan Gosling’s K, Villeneuve

My Little Pony and 5 more films inspired by toys

Playing with toys, in a way, is like making your own movie.

As a child, there's a strong chance you used to create your own universes and narratives with some of your favourite toys. Whether it was with Barbie Dolls, Hot Wheels, Mr. Potato Heads or My Little Ponies, you got to choose the story, giving these inanimate objects their own voices and dialogues.

That's probably why toys are such an easy subject to turn into a movie. These are characters and beings that were literally meant to tell stories, and we've seen this on the big screen time and again.

This fall, My Little Pony: The Movie is coming to theatres, and while some of us are nostalgic for those colourful little horses, there are now new generations

Blade Runner 2049 Trailer #2 Is Here and It's Absolutely Stunning

Blade Runner 2049 Trailer #2 Is Here and It's Absolutely Stunning
Blade Runner 2049, a sequel 35 years in the making, is mere months away at this point and we finally have a full-length trailer for it. A brief and very vague teaser was released a few months ago, giving us a sense of the very authentic feel this movie is going to have, but it didn't give us much else. Now, with the release date fast approaching, it is time to watch the new trailer for the long-awaited Blade Runner sequel that serves as some very exciting evidence that this movie is actually happening.

Warner Bros. decided to release the new Blade Runner 2049 trailer online today, the same day that they are doing a big Q&A with the cast and crew of the movie. After months of pretty much only knowing that there is going to be a sequel to Blade Runner coming to theaters, it looks like we

Two Apocalyptic Posters For Blade Runner 2049 Spotlight The Veteran And The Hotshot

How do you engineer a compelling follow-up to one of cinema’s greatest cult classics? That’s the conundrum currently facing Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario, Dune), the director at the helm of Blade Runner 2049.

It’s a sequel 30 years in the making, and though Ridley Scott’s genre-defining original struggled to make much of a dent at the box office back in ’82 – in fact, critics at the time argued that Blade Runner was little more than a textbook example of style over substance – the engrossing story of Rick Deckard has since wormed its way into the history books as a visually astute sci-fi masterpiece. No pressure for 2049, then.

But during the ongoing press tour for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Dave Bautista was asked about his involvement in Blade Runner 2049. Bound by an Nda, the former wrestler and Mma fighter was naturally cagey about Villeneuve’s long-in-development sequel,

New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Reportedly Set To Screen Before Alien: Covenant; Ryan Gosling’s Replicant Hunter Headlines New Pic

Between 1979 and ’82, the back-to-back release of Alien and Blade Runner helped cement Ridley Scott’s status as one of the very best sci-fi filmmakers working in the industry, and that legacy continues to burn brightly even to this day.

Case in point: 2017 not only heralds the arrival of Alien: Covenant, Scott’s prequel-sequel that takes the fundamental story strands of Prometheus and steeps them in an acidic pool of old-school horror, but there’s also Blade Runner 2049 to consider. The latter isn’t actually directed by Ridley Scott; in his place, Arrival and soon-to-be Dune director Denis Villeneuve has taken control of the sequel 30 years in the making. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that Ridley Scott doesn’t have a vested interest in 2049 – he is an executive producer on the follow-up, after all.

And so, when quizzed on Blade Runner 2049 during his recent interview with the Associated Press
