'Blade Runner 2049' Aims for $50M+ Opening, Hoping for Long Legs Throughout October

5 October 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

Debuting 35 years after the original, Blade Runner 2049 hopes to get October off to a good start on the heels of record numbers this past September. And while the sci-fi drama is looking for big numbers, Fox is delivering some counter-programming in the survival story The Mountain Between Us, Lionsgate is releasing the animated feature My Little Pony and Focus expands the release of Victoria and Abdul nationwide. Blade Runner 2049 and its reported, $150 million price tag, will debut in 4,058 North American theaters (third widest all-time) this weekend while Sony and partner Alcon Entertainment will deliver the film worldwide. Industry expectations are for a $100 million debut globally, with approximately 50% of that coming from the domestic opening as industry forecasts range from $45-55 million. From a comparison standpoint, focusing on films such as Mad Max: Fury Road and Prometheus make good sense given the 30 years between films in the Mad Max »

Nostalgia Critic Celebrates Ten Years Of Videos With A Much-Requested Review

6 July 2017 4:51 PM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Back in 2007, Doug Walker posted a rant under the name Nostalgia Critic for the first time. Now, a decade later, Walker’s work has endured, and he has taken some time to celebrate his long career on the internet. The Nostalgia Critic is ten years old, and Channel Awesome, which serves as the home for those videos, has celebrated with numerous festivities.

To kick off the Critic’s ten-year bash, Channel Awesome employee Walter Banasiak put together a list of some of Walker’s best work. If you’ve never experienced the Critic’s exasperated rants, witty sketches, and tough-but-fair criticisms of classic TV shows and movies, that rundown is a good place to start.

Once you’re up to speed on Walker’s signature character, it’s time to dive into his latest review: A 28-minute evisceration of the 2016 film Norm of the North. Walker describes the animated flick, »

Gkids to let Spain's Birdboy: the Forgotten Children animated feature fly

12 May 2017 3:39 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Back in my day, movie studios weren't afraid to inject a little fear into the hearts and minds of young viewers with films like The Secret Of Nihm, Watership Down, Fire And Ice, and The Last Unicorn. These days, youngsters are getting little more than mind-numbing fodder with animations like Dreamwork's Boss Baby, The Emoji Movie (eye roll), and Norm Of The North. In the interest of being fair...

‘All I Want For Christmas’ Gets Animated

22 March 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is said that if a Christmas goes by without every human (no matter what their religion) hearing and singing along to Mariah Carey‘s festive classic, All I Want For Christmas, then the world will end. Thankfully that’s never happened, and was made even less likely by the wonderfully uplifting cover featured in Love Actually. Now, just in case there are those younglings who haven’t quite taken up the tradition, the song is set to inspire its own CGI animated feature from Universal.

With Carey on board as an executive producer, and the plot focusing on a young girl who desires her own puppy, you can look for it this holiday season on DVD from Universal 1440 Entertainment. Being familiar with the lyrics, they may just need to change a few ‘baby’s to ‘puppy’s.

Production is now underway on Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You, »

‘Get Out’ Is Poised To Break Out: Jordan Peele’s First Movie Could Win The Weekend Box Office

23 February 2017 12:49 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With its combination of horror and racial commentary, “Get Out” (Universal) is the best bet to lead the Top 10 this weekend. With a chance to be not only a hit but also a game-changer, it looks like both a breakout for first-time director Jordan Peele and yet another winner for producer Jason Blum.

The timing on Oscar weekend, particularly in the aftermath of #oscarssowhite, is fortuitous, and it moves into release with a whopping 100% on Rotten Tomatoes after 85 reviews. Horror maven Jason Blum is also an Oscar-nominated producer (“Whiplash”) as well as the force behind M. Might Shyamalan’s “Split,” the first film of 2017 to gross over $100 million domestic.

Get Out,” as befits its origins from comic actor/writer Jordan Peele (who stays behind the camera), is a mix of humor and horror in its tale of an interracial couple meeting her wealthy liberal white parents for the first time. »

The Weekend Warrior 2/24/17: Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

22 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop.  Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days. »

The joy of finding a surprise, excellent movie to watch

18 January 2017 5:29 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 19, 2017

Phantom Boy is playing in a limited number of UK cinemas this weekend. It's just the kind of surprise that's hard to find in modern movies.

I’ve written before about my love of Saturday and Sunday morning kids' clubs at multiplexes, where you can take your anklebiters to see a film that’s a couple of months post-its release. Such screenings are a godsend to parents of fidgety children, or those of us trying to introduce our youngsters to the cinema. There’s a kinship in there. Nobody goes in expecting children to be perfectly quiet, and there’s usually a spirit of tolerance and some degree of shared film love. Plus, let’s be honest, it’s not a bad value couple of hours either, given that the price tends to be lowered too.

ComicMix Six: Box Office Democracy’s Worst Movies of 2016

12 January 2017 8:15 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Last time, I covered the best movies of 2016— and now it’s time for the flip side. Brace yourself.

#6: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – In my top list I praised Captain America: Civil War for being a kind of triumphant pinnacle of fan service in comic book movies. Batman v Superman might well be the dark mirror of that idea: fan service run completely amok.  Characters are crammed in this movie every which way along with vague concepts, half-formed ideas, and every frame of iconic superhero artwork Zack Snyder has ever seen.  Batman v Superman is depressing both in tone and failed potential.  The Superman that Snyder puts on the screen is the worst interpretation of the character I’ve ever seen, impulsive and violent without a trace of warmth.  Only the moderately badass Wonder Woman sequences save this movie from higher placement on this list, and they »

Oscar This: The Oscar-worthy cinematography of Pete’s Dragon is anything but kids’ stuff

11 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

This year’s Oscar nominations will be announced on January 24. Will the Academy uphold conventional wisdom or think outside of the box? With Oscar This, we highlight unlikely candidates—the dark horses we’d love to see compete.

Definitions of genre tend to grow nebulous as exceptions to rules pile up, but none are more malleable than “kids’ movie,” the only line in the sand drawn by age. The lone criterion outlining this wide umbrella appears to be a rating of PG or tamer, and the accompanying implication that children can see it without wigging out. But that allows for wide variations in form and tone, from more specific generic sub-distinctions (kid-friendly horror, like the recent Ghostbusters movie, is one example) to blurring between them (every kids’ fantasy movie is also a comedy, at least a little). Any category that collects Norm Of The North, The B.F.G ...

Letterboxd Year In Review 2016: ‘Moonlight’ Named Film of the Year By Online Community

10 January 2017 11:49 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Letterboxd, the global social network for sharing your taste in film, has released the results of its 2016 Year In Review, based on the Letterboxd community’s combined ratings as of January 1. They have awarded Barry Jenkins’ Golden Globe-winning “Moonlight” as the film of the year.

“Our hearty congratulations to Barry Jenkins and ‘Moonlight’ on taking the top spot for 2016 in our Year in Review,” says Letterboxd co-founder Matthew Buchanan. “After the ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ juggernaut of 2015, which we unashamedly loved, we began 2016 with no idea what film might win people’s hearts, and we’re taking immense pleasure in seeing a low-budget movie with a diverse cast of mostly unknown actors and no franchise history top the list.”

Additionally, the community also rated Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” second and Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester by the Sea” third. »
