Lack of New Releases Keeps ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ and ‘Zootopia’ at Top of Disc Sales Charts

14 July 2016 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With almost no high-profile new releases to impact the charts the week ended July 10, DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3,” distributed by 20th Century Fox, earned a second week atop the Npd VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Holding onto the No. 2 spot on both charts for a second week was Walt Disney Studios’ “Zootopia,” which in its fifth week sold 78% as many copies as the “Panda” sequel in its second (and 71% as many Blu-ray copies).

Moving up a spot to No. 3 on both charts was Fox’s “Deadpool,” in its ninth week.

Universal Pictures’ “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” dropped to No. 4 on the overall chart, with Paramount’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” taking No. 5.

On the Blu-ray chart, “13 Hours” was No. 4, with Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” moving back up to No. »

‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Helps DreamWorks Animation Earnings Beat Projections

5 May 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kung Fu Panda 3” and growth in its television business powered first quarter earnings at DreamWorks Animation, helping the film studio beat Wall Street projections.

Revenues climbed 14.4% to $190.4 million and the Glendale, Calif., studio reported a net profit of $13.8 million, as opposed to the $54.8 million loss it recorded a year ago. It also logged earnings of 16 cents a share. Analysts expected the company to announce earnings of a cent per share and revenue of $183 million for the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters.

The robust fiscal picture emerges roughly a week after news broke that Comcast had reached a deal to acquire DreamWorks Animation for $4.1 billion in cash and debt assumption. The media conglomerate, which owns NBCUniversal, hopes to create a family film empire to rival Disney’s. It already backs Illumination Entertainment, the creator of the “Despicable Me” franchise.

Harry Cripps on writing Larrikins for Tim Minchin and Dreamworks

5 April 2016 3:44 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

At Screen Australia's Family Film Forum at Sydney's Uts, screenwriter Harry Cripps discussed writing feature animation Larrikins for Dreamworks.

The studio was looking for an Australian story - to do for Australia what Kung Fu Panda.had done for China, according to Cripps.

The scribe came onboard after six of his pilot scipts for the American marketplace had gone nowhere.

Cripps started work on Larrikins in 2011. The film's third in-progress screening will take place in June, and the finished product will be released in 2018.

In the video above, he talks about his writing approach, his early experiences in the Australian film industry on features such as Paws, and the pitching system that exists in the American system - which has "nothing to do with how good a writer you are".

Cripps discusses his work on Kung Fu Panda 3, which was brief and left him in tears, and teases what we can expect in Larrikins. »

April Foolish Predix: Best Animated Features

4 April 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's past time to begin our annual tradition of predicting the future Oscar nominees way before anyone should (yes, I'm aware that nowadays every clickbait site does it the day after the Oscars but we're not into that. Jesus, ppl, let each film year settle!). Let's start with the easiest category in that it's its own world entirely, The Animated Feature. Last year was a relatively thin year for the medium, in that the number of eligible films just barely triggered a 5 wide field. We shouldn't expect a similar dearth this year.

After all 2016's already delivered a possible frontrunner (the delightful Zootopia), a hit that people have already forgotten about (Kung Fu Panda 3... currently #4 of 2016 but have you ever heard anyone talk about it?), trailers to roughly a billion would be cartoon blockbusters scheduled for 2016, and the very tantalizing prospects of an original Disney musical (Moana) and a »

The Daughter passes $1.2 million, Batman versus Superman drops off sharply

3 April 2016 4:42 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Odessa Young in The Daughter.

Word of mouth and eye-watering reviews seem to be catching up with WB's Batman V Superman, which raked in $4.5 million on 292 screens but dropped sixty-five percent in its second week. .

The Zack Snyder-directed superhero smackdown has now made $22.6 million overall.

In sharp contrast, Disney's Zootopia.dropped a mere one percent in its third week for a weekend Bo of $3.1 million and an overall cume of $14.5 million off 301 screens.

Zootopia was the sole original in the top five, beating third-place getter My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which took $2.7 million in its second weekend to bring its total to over $9 million.

Fox's well-reviewed Kung Fu Panda 3 dropped twenty-seven percent in week two to ring up $1.8 million, for a cume of $6.3 million on 280 screens.

Roadshow's London Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler, has made $4.9 million after three weeks, while Sony's The Lady in the Van has made $8.6 million after five. »

Box Office: ‘Batman v Superman’ Passes ‘Man of Steel’ With $682.9 Million Globally

3 April 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” topped the foreign box office for a second consecutive weekend, racking up $85.1 million from 68 territories and pushing the superhero film’s global haul to $682.9 million.

That passes the lifetime gross of “Man of Steel,” the most recent Superman film, which pulled in $668 million worldwide during its 2013 run. Domestically, “Batman v Superman” suffered a steep drop-off, falling 68% in its second weekend to $52.4 million in ticket sales.

Critics have piled on the film and word-of-mouth has been mixed. Warner Bros., the studio behind the $250 million production, spent lavishly to produce and market the picture because it wants to kick off a series of interconnected movies based on DC Comics characters. The studio already has films based on the Flash, Wonder Woman, and the Justice League in the works and next summer brings “Suicide Squad,” a film about a team of super-villains.

Box Office: ‘Batman v Superman’ Racks Up $46 Million Globally on Monday

29 March 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” added $46 million to its global box office haul Monday. That includes a $15 million in domestic receipts and pushes the superhero match-up’s worldwide total to $468.6 million.

It’s a massive number, but there are still questions swirling about the film’s long-term health. Reviews have been negative, and the response from viewers has been lukewarm. The picture received a mediocre B CinemaScore, one of the lowest results for either a Superman or Batman film. Given the tepid reaction, the question is how sharply will “Batman v Superman” fall in its second weekend? If word of mouth is bad, the drop could be very steep indeed.

Studio sources, however, say that social media reaction by fans has been largely positive and there have been reports from exhibitors of repeat viewing. The CinemaScore also improves with younger audiences, a demographic that coincides with fanboys. Males under 18 gave the film an A-, »

A Warrior’s Tail review: “A joyful and ambitious project with good messages.”

A Warrior’s Tail review: Can a low-budget Russian animated film stand up to the heavy hitters this Easter holiday? A Warrior’s Tail review

With the holidays upon us you can expect your fair share of animated features descending upon the multiplexes. There’s sequel Kung Fu Panda 3, Disney’s excellent Zootropolis, Rob Schneider as a polar bear in Norm of the North, and the obligatory foreign animation with an English dubbed thrown on top of it, A Warrior’s Tail. The Russian animation seems to have been produced with an English release in mind however, which means lip-synching isn’t much of a problem.

After his village is attacked by brightly coloured Hyena’s, Savva (Milla Jovovich), escapes and looks to find help of some kind kind. He meets a white wolf, Angee (Will Chase), who tells Savva about a wizard on a mountain who could help him. »

China Box Office: ‘Batman v Superman’ Has Okay $56 Million Opening Weekend

28 March 2016 8:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” opened on top of the Chinese box office. But it fell short of expectations and failed to rewrite many record books.

The double superhero fantasy action franchise picture opened on 16,000 screens and posted $56.5 million over its three-day opening, according to data from Ent Group. That comfortably beat “Zootopia” in second place, which managed $26.8 million over the full week and stands on a 24 day cumulative of $197 million after 24 days on release.

“Batman v Superman” had the supposed benefit of a release that was simultaneous with its worldwide rollout. And it scored an impressive $18.4 million on Friday (Mar. 25).  That was the second largest Friday opening for a Hollywood film, behind “Transformers 4” from 2014, and was reported to be the sixth largest opening day for a Hollywood movie in China,

But after Friday matters were much closer over the weekend proper. On Saturday “Batman v Superman”  earned $22.3 million, »

Ben Affleck as Batman.

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck as the caped crusader,.Batman V Superman.opened around the country on 293 screens last week, ringing up just over $13 million including 3D and IMAX showings.

The opening volley in WB's bid for a 'cinematic universe' of their own to compete with the Avengers, Batman V Superman.also scored the highest per-cinema average of the weekend, with a whopping $44,843 per location, besting last week's per-location champ, Universal's The Witch (a $15,060 average)..

Per screen,.The Witch narrowly pipped the number two film at the local Bo overall, Universal's My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which opened on 284 screens for a total take of $3.9 million - $14,309 per-cinema.

On 292 screens in its second week, Disney's Zootopia dropped a trifling twenty-six percent to pull in $3.1 million over the long weekend, bringing its cume to $8.6 million and well and truly trouncing Fox's Kung Fu Panda 3, »

Weekend Box Office: 'Batman v Superman' Dominates With $170M

27 March 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

By Jake Coyle, AP Film Writer

New York (AP) -- Faster than a speeding bullet and impervious to lousy reviews, the superhero faceoff "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" rebounded from a smack down from critics to debut with a massive $170.1 million in North America, the sixth best opening of all-time.

The stakes were high for the Warner Bros. release, which cost $250 million to make and about $150 million to market. But the studio's bid to launch a DC Comics universe to rival Marvel's empire was met with persistent PR pains and numerous changes in the release date.

It fought skepticism over Ben Affleck's casting as Batman and a barrage of bad reviews earlier in the week. Things were bad enough to spawn a ubiquitous viral video of "Sad Ben Affleck," which took the actor's response to the reviews and scored it with Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence."

Brussels attacks prompt festival doubts

22 March 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Next week’s Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival faces an uncertain future following a series of terrorist attacks in the Belgian capital.

A series of explosions in Brussels this morning, which have left many people killed or seriously injured, has thrown the future of the imminent Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (Bifff) into doubt.

The 34th edition of the genre festival is due to open next Tuesday (March 29) with a screening of period action thriller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

But following two blasts at Zaventem airport around 7am (GMT) this morning and a further explosion at Maelbeek metro station an hour later, festival director Guy Delmote has stated that the upcoming event faces an uncertain future.

Speaking to ScreenDaily, Delmote said: “We don’t believe it. We are very sad for all the people who died today. We don’t know what’s going to happen in the next few days for the festival. We don’t want »

China Box Office: ‘Zootopia’ Ahead of ‘Revenant’

20 March 2016 10:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Revenant” grabbed attention with a great opening in China, but “Zootopia” won the weekend at the Chinese box office.

The popularity of Leonardo DiCaprio in the Middle Kingdom and his recent Oscar endorsement ensured a strong Friday launch for “The Revenant.” It earned $9.80 million and first place according to local box office service Ent Group.

Saturday and Sunday charts were dominated by the more family friendly “Zootopia” which clocked up $16.6 million on Saturday and a further $13.1 million on Sunday, ahead of “The Revenant” which dropped to $7.26 million on Saturday and $9.22 million on Sunday.

Their performances at the top of the Chinese box office gave “Zootopia” a weekend haul of $37.0 million (ComScore reported $38.6 million) and a 17 day cumulative of $173 million, and gave “The Revenant” a three day score of $31.7 million.

Including previews, Ent Group reports a $32 million cumulative. Fox reported $33 million.

Film Review: Kung Fu Panda 3

20 March 2016 11:38 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Kung Fu Panda 3, the last part in DreamWorks Animation's trilogy (unless another is announced once box office receipts are tallied), puts an end to unlikely hero Po's adventures in the best possible way, delivering laughs aplenty and the most vibrant animation this year. Po (Jack Black), now a Dragon Warrior, has settled into life well, battling evil and taking lessons from Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman). But when his long-lost father Li Shan (Bryan Cranston) arrives unexpectedly, Po is sent on a quest to master the ancient art of Ch'i and become at one with himself. All the while an ancient evil from the spirit realm, Kai (Jk Simmons), is garnering strength, his intention to destroy all kung fu masters, collecting their strength to bolster his own.
