Box Office: 'Split' Tops ‘Dog’s Purpose’ With $26 Million

Box Office: 'Split' Tops ‘Dog’s Purpose’ With $26 Million
Despite the TMZ videos and boycott threats, “A Dog’s Purpose” still managed to pull in family audiences, who apparently shook off or were unmoved by footage of a cowering German Shepherd being forced into rushing water.

The story of a dog who gets reincarnated, living through and playing “man’s best friend” to multiple masters, brought in $18.4 million in its opening weekend. That’s in line with other films for animal-lovers, such as “Eight Below” ($20.1 million) and “Dolphin Tale” ($19.1 million), neither one of which raised the ire of PETA. Universal and Amblin partnered on “A Dog’s Purpose.” It has a $22 million production budget.

It’s a solid opening, one that suggests that the companies were successful in containing the wave of bad publicity that threatened the film’s release. After TMZ released the video, director Lasse Hallstrom, producer Gavin Polone, and various cast members expressed their outrage and

'Tron 3' Gets Titled 'Tron: Ascension'?

'Tron 3' Gets Titled 'Tron: Ascension'?
Earlier this month, we reported that Disney's Tron 3 is set to start shooting this fall, with Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski confirmed to be back at the helm for this long-awaited follow-up. Today, Production Weekly is reporting that the sequel is now titled Tron: Ascension, with production scheduled to begin in Vancouver this October 2015 to February 2016. Disney has not confirmed the title or the production schedule at this time, but Production Weekly was the first to reveal the Terminator Genisys title for the first time back in December 2013, so it's certainly possible that Tron: Ascension is the actual title.

Garrett Hedlund, who played Sam Flynn in Tron: Legacy, is the only actor currently confirmed for Tron: Ascension at this time. With production said to begin later this year, hopefully we'll start hearing about whether or not Tron: Legacy cast members Jeff Bridges (Kevin Flynn), Olivia Wilde (Quorra) or Bruce Boxleitner

'Tron 3' Begins Shooting in Fall 2015
Back in December 2012, two years after Tron: Legacy hit theaters, Garrett Hedlund confirmed that he will return to play Sam Flynn in Disney's Tron 3, but we haven't heard much about the sequel since then. Today, VanCity Buzz reports that production is scheduled to begin on October 5, with Garrett Hedlund currently the only confirmed star at this time. Sources from Badass Digest and /Film confirm the report, while adding that Joseph Kosinski is coming back to direct.

Joseph Kosinski revealed back in October 2013 that the script was still being written by Jesse Wigutow (The Crow reboot), who rewrote the original script by David Digilio (Eight Below). While the director insisted at the time that the project was still moving forward, this is the first we've heard about production getting under way this year. It remains to be seen if Jeff Bridges (Kevin Flynn), Olivia Wilde (Quorra) or Bruce Boxleitner (Alan Bradley

<< Continued from "Weekend Report: 'Grey' Makes Green Over Valentine's Day Weekend"Kingsman: The Secret Service was arguably more impressive than Fifty Shades of Grey this weekend. Playing at 3,204 locations, the comic book adaptation opened to $36.2 million, which is in the same ballpark as recent action movies Taken 3 ($39.2 million) and The Equalizer ($34.1 million).For the four-day weekend, it earned $41.7 million, which trounces past President's Day titles like The Wolfman, Constantine, Jumper, and A Good Day to Die Hard.Fox's decision to schedule Kingsman against Fifty Shades of Grey raised some eyebrows: was it really possible for this R-rated action movie to make money against the Valentine's Day juggernaut that is Fifty Shades? In hindsight, this seems like a particularly savvy move: by providing such a stark contrast, the movie wound up being the de facto counter choice over the holiday weekend.Of course, scheduling alone won't do the trick*the

Around-the-World Roundup: 'Fifty Shades' Opens to Massive $158 Million Overseas
In a somewhat surprising development, Fifty Shades of Grey is proving to be even more of a phenomenon internationally than it is in the U.S.

The movie earned a stunning $158 million from 58 markets this weekend. That's the second-biggest weekend ever for Universal Pictures International (behind Fast & Furious 6), and included their biggest single day ever (Valentine's Day at $55.1 million).

The movie set opening weekend records in 11 markets, including Italy ($9.1 million), Argentina and Poland. It also set a record for Universal Pictures in the U.K. ($21.1 million), France ($12 million), Russia ($10.5 million) and Brazil ($8.9 million). Other key markets include Germany ($15.2 million), Australia ($8.6 million), Mexico ($8.1 million) and Spain ($7.9 million).

The movie has a few more markets left to open, including South Korea later this month. It will be interesting to see how it holds up in the coming weeks; even if it drops like a rock, though, it should still wind up well over $300 million.

Japanese Actor Ken Takakura Dies at 83
Ken Takakura, who first rose to stardom in the 1960s playing yakuza outlaws, but later became Hollywood’s go-to actor for made-in-Japan films, died on Nov. 10 at age 83 of malignant lymphoma. A private funeral had already been held when the Japanese media broke the story today.

The legendary actor most recently starred in “Dearest” and Zhang Yimou’s “Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles.” Western audiences best know Takakura for his roles in Ridley Scott’s “Black Rain” and 1992′s “Mr. Baseball.”

Born on Feb. 16, 1931 in Fukuoka, Japan, Takakura entered the Toei studio in 1955 after graduating from Meiji University.

Final act: what happens when a film turns out to be a star's last

Paul Walker's Brick Mansions and Philip Seymour Hoffman's God's Pocket are just the latest examples of cinema's unique, and sometimes eerie, gift for resurrection

If it had come out a year ago, it would have slid by, noticed only by that portion of the cinema audience dedicated to admiring high-speed car chases and wiry blokes who run up the sides of buildings. But Brick Mansions, the latest in the conveyor-belt of French-derived trash-action films Taxi, The Transporter, Taken has got something very unusual going for it: Paul Walker, live and in the flesh.

Walker, you will recall, was the actor who appeared in the speed-freak Fast and Furious films, and who died in a car accident in November last year part-way through filming the seventh in the F&F series. His participation in Brick Mansions was no doubt originally designed to try to free him from what by

'Congo' Director To Helm Shipwreck Drama 'The Longest Night'

Frank Marshall is best known as a producer, having served as such on such beloved films as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Gremlins, The Goonies and Back to the Future. Though he's helmed a number of feature films, he is far less distinguished as a director. That's because he's responsible for Arachnophobia, Alive, Congo and most recently the 2011 sled-dog adventure Eight Below. But the lack of prestige pics hasn't deterred Paramount Pictures from picking Marshall to helm their upcoming shipwreck drama The Longest Night. THR reports Marshall has signed on to helm The Longest Night and will be working with a screenplay penned by Jonathan Lemkin, the screenwriter behind The Devil's Advocate and the Mark Wahlberg-fronted crime-drama Shooter. The new drama will be based on a 2008 GQ article by Sean Flynn. Here's the first paragraph of the piece that inspired the film: "One Easter Sunday, the Alaska

Frank Marshall To Tackle The Longest Night

Though Frank Marshall usually wears the producer hat, with credits that range from the Bourne films to Indiana Jones, he does step behind the camera every so often. Granted, with credits like Eight Below and Congo under his belt, he’s definitely had better luck when someone else is at the helm. Despite this, Marshall is intent on trying his hand at directing once more and this time, THR reports that he’s chosen to adapt Sean Flynn’s 2008 GQ article, The Longest Night.

Based on a true story, the film will follow a shipwreck that involved an Alaskan trawler sinking in “frigid, 6,000-foot-deep waters.” 47 people were on board and in an extraordinary rescue operation, the Coast Guard was able to save 42 lives.

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty extraordinary story and it’s definitely something that would make for a compelling film, especially

Frank Marshall to Direct Shipwreck Drama 'The Longest Night'
Frank Marshall has signed on to direct the shipwreck drama The Longest Night for Paramount Pictures, marking his first directorial project since Eight Below.

The project was set up through Conde Nast Entertainment, a company which launched specifically to develop stories from their magazines for movie and TV adaptations. This story is based on a December 2008 GQ article by Sean Flynn, which chronicles the true story of an Alaskan trawler, which sank in 6,000-foot deep waters on Easter Sunday in 2008. The ship went down 180 miles off the Alaskan coast, carrying 47 crew members, 42 of which were rescued by the Coast Guard, despite facing nearly insurmountable obstacles like 15-foot swells.

Jonathan Lemkin (Jonathan Lemkin, Lethal Weapon 4) wrote the adapted screenplay, with Frank Marshall also producing alongside Conde Nast's Dawn Ostroff and Jeremy Steckler. No production schedule was given.

Frank Marshall to Direct Again on 'Longest Night' Coast Guard Drama

Right now producer Frank Marshall has his hands full with Jurassic World, the latest sequel (which also seems to be sort of a reboot) in the Jurassic Park franchise launched by Steven Spielberg in 1993. Marshall has produced some of the biggest franchises of all time like Back to the Future and Raiders of the Lost Ark, and now he's looking to get back behind the camera as a director. The last time Marshall directed a film, it was Disney's Antarctic adventure Eight Below with the late Paul Walker in 2006, and before that, Congo in 1995. Now THR reports Marshall will direct a shipwreck drama called The Longest Night at Paramount. Lethal Weapon 4 writer Jonathan Lemkin scripted the film which is based on the article of the same name by Sean Flynn that appeared in a December 2008 issue of GQ, detailing a true-life Coast Guard rescue operation that unfolded on Easter
