'Kingsman 2' Finishes #1 as September Grosses Near Record High

2 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The weekend's new releases fell shy of Mojo's weekend forecast, but Kingsman: The Golden Circle still managed to debut larger than the original, finishing in the #1 spot. Unfortunately, The Lego Ninjago Film fell well short of expectations as did Friend Request, which delivered a mere $2.4 million opening. There were, however, some bright spots among limited release titles as Battle of the Sexes and Victoria and Abdul delivered strong opening results as September's calendar grosses continue to pace toward record heights. Topping the box office was Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, delivering an estimated $39 million from 4,003 theaters. The opening improves on the $36.2 million opening for the first film, but the film's performance over the next couple of weeks will tell the true story. The first Kingsman turned its $36 million debut into a $128 million domestic run, a 3.54x multiplier. Should Golden Circle follow suit we're talking about a $138+ million domestic run, which »

‘1922’ Review: Thomas Jane Haunted by Guilt in Stephen King Adaptation

55 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Guilt may be the focus of “1922,” but it’s the audience’s patience that gets a workout. The story of a Midwestern farmer coming to terms with his role in his wife’s murder, Zak Hilditch’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novella of the same name feels overlong or maybe underfed, fleshing out the character’s mental deterioration in handsome but unsurprising detail. Even boasting strong performances from the likes of Thomas Jane and Molly Parker, “1922” feels best suited for its home on Netflix (premiering October 20) as Hollywood shuffles through its latest surge in King-themed projects. Jane plays Wilfred James, »

Film Review: ‘La Familia’

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the Venezuelan economic crisis intensifies to a point where no metaphor for hunger or mortal danger can sound hyperbolic, the country’s filmmakers are increasingly talking over their government’s troubling denial. Or, in the case of newcomer Gustavo Rondón Córdova, filling an empty silence with a loaded one: The characters don’t say much in “La Familia,” his rough-edged but finely scaled feature debut, but their lack of communication speaks to a larger lack of harmony and empathy in a population exhausted by poverty and ingrained brutality. An honest, urgent two-hander, tracking a struggling single father and his wayward son on the run from more than one undefined enemy, Córdova’s film brings little that’s new to its stylistic school of observational realism — but hits the Caracas sidewalks hard and purposefully enough to compensate.

Thanks to its combination of political currency and no-nonsense storytelling, “La Familia” has already racked up considerable festival mileage since »

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

In response to Donald Trump’s criticisms of athletes who kneel during the “Star Spangled Banner,” teams throughout the NFL are staging protests and demonstrations of unity during the national anthem. The demonstrations come after athletes from various sports attacked Trump on Saturday for his comments during a rally in Alabama and subsequent tweets, in which he called for fans to boycott teams with players who kneel during the anthem and for teams to fire those players. The protest was started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to speak out against racial injustice. Also Read: Steven Mnuchin Bashes NFL on. »

With ‘Battle of the Sexes,’ the Co-Directors of ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ Finally Let the Sunshine of Reality In

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

Hollywood filmmakers can always find a dozen different rationales — integrity, naked sellout, treading water — for choosing their next project. So how, exactly, does one account for the careers of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris? In 2006, the married co-directors of television commercials and fatally hip music videos (R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Macy Gray, The Smashing Pumpkins) made their first feature film, “Little Miss Sunshine,” at which point they took possession of the buzz, the money, and the known movie universe.

The picture was adored by audiences — first at the Sundance Film Festival, and then, in the late summer, when it was released in theaters by Fox Searchlight. Critics, by and large, gave it their imprimatur of affection and acclaim. (I hated the movie, but we’ll get to that in a moment.) The awards love then followed suit: four Oscar nominations (for best picture, best original screenplay, best supporting actor, best »

HBO has premiered the first trailer for Spielberg, a feature-length documentary about the renowned filmmaker and master storyteller.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Star Jason Isaacs Tells Us Whether Show’s Klingons Reflect Trump

3 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With “Star Trek: Discovery” taking flight tonight, its star Jason Isaacs weighs in on the notion that the show’s Klingons reflect the mindset of some President Trump supporters. The speculation came following showrunner Aaron Harberts’ recent mention that the new series in the Gene Roddenberry-created sci-fi franchise will take cues from the contemporary world, and that the Klingons will “help us really look at certain sides of ourselves and our country.” Although this led many to infer that “Discovery” would be using the warrior species to comment on the Trump mindset, CBS called that a misinterpretation. “I don »

NFL to Air Ad Promoting Unity in Wake of Trump Attacks on Anthem Protests

3 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The NFL plans to air an ad promoting unity following President Donald Trump’s campaign to “fire or suspend” National Anthem protestors.

The one-minute ad, originally produced for the Super Bowl earlier this year, will run during NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” telecast.

“We think this is the single best response to demonstrate what we are about,” an NFL spokesman told CNN, which first reported the news.

“Inside these lines, we don’t have to come from the same place to help each other reach the same destination,” Forest Whitaker intones in the ad. “Inside these lines, we may have our differences, but recognize there’s more that unites us.”

This comes as a reaction to a feud that ignited over the weekend between Trump and the NFL. On Friday, Trump told a rally in Alabama, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to »

Facebook and the Future of Democracy, News, Free Expression and All That Stuff

3 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Facebook has a “D.C. problem,” says everybody: the Washington, D.C.-based news sites and pundits, Axios and Politico and Rachel Maddow. Everybody’s up in arms that Facebook took months to disclose that it received $100,000 in political ads from Russian fronts during the 2016 election. Facebook finally fessed up to this fact in September — eight months after having denied it. CEO Mark Zuckerberg last week rushed to offer an empathetic video in which he confessed that “for a while we had found no evidence of fake accounts linked to Russia running ads” but the platform suddenly found 3,000 fake ads that. »
