Mama (I) (2013)
You’ll float too when “It” arrives onto 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, Blu-ray Steelbook (exclusive to HMV), and Digital Download from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. New Line Cinema’s blockbuster horror thriller “It,” directed by Andy Muschietti (“Mama”), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. “It” will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Blu-ray Steelbook from 15 January 2018.

“It” stars Bill Skarsgård (“Allegiant,” TV’s “Hemlock Grove”) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (“Midnight Special”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip”), Sophia Lillis (“37”), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s “Stranger Things”), Wyatt Oleff (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming “Cops and Robbers”), Jack Dylan Grazer
If you were putting together a showreel to represent the outstanding moments beamed onto a cinema canvas from the past year, then you’d have plenty to choose from; Emma Stone’s hypnotic rendition of The Fools Who Dream from La La Land. The Mr. Blue Sky shootout during the opening credits of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The moment Rod triumphantly shows up at the end of Jordan Peele’s Get Out. Or how about the lounge room roulette from The Killing of a Sacred Deer?
The fact that none of these have made it into this very personal rundown is a testament to 2017 on the big-screen, and also the fact cinema has that very special way of appealing to the individual. So, please turn your mobile phones off, and come with me on a journey through the top ten movie moments of the year.

It is also one of the first decisive moves made by Donna Langley, who was made chairman of Universal Pictures after Monday’s dramatic shake-up that saw the exit of chairman Adam Fogelson and the elevation of Jeff Shell to chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group. (To be clear, however, Muschietti first
The zombie-themed romantic comedy (zom-rom-com?) easily topped the chart on Friday with $8.7 million. Last year, the teen superpower adventure Chronicle earned $8.6 million the Friday before Super Bowl Sunday and finished the frame with $22 million. Since Warm Bodies, which is based on the popular novel by Isaac Marion, already has a built-in following, it’s likely that it will be more frontloaded and finish the weekend with about $20 million. Still, that’s a tremendous
Almost a year after its originally scheduled March 2012 release, Paramount’s $50 million Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters topped the chart on its first Friday with $6.0 million from 3,372 theaters. The poorly reviewed film (a phrase that applies to all this weekend’s new releases) stars Gemma Arteron and Jeremy Renner, but the Avengers star has demonstrated little drawing power as a leading man so far. Hansel and Gretel
Over the four-day weekend, Mama scared up a tremendous $33 million (its three-day cume was adjusted up to $28.5 million), making the $15 million film a huge winner for Universal. Horror movies play particularly well in January — just two weeks ago Texas Chainsaw 3D topped the chart — but Mama had a lot working in its favor. Its female
According to Film.com, "Mama" brought in an impressive $28.1 million, while "Zero Dark Thirty" held strong in second place with $17.6 million. And, oh by the way, Chastain also won the Golden Globe last weekend for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama and picked up an Oscar nomination to boot.
With Chastain pretty much dominating everything in the world, there was little room for anyone else at the box office, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose new film "The Last Stand" bombed out in a distant tenth place. For the full details of that disaster, plus the rest of the box office chart, head to Film.com.
Chastain’s latest vehicle, Mama, crushed the competition over the three-day weekend with a whopping $28.3 million. Universal, who produced the PG-13 film for only $15 million,

Universal’s $15 million Guillermo Del Toro-produced horror film Mama easily topped the box office on Friday with a sizzling $10 million, putting it on pace for a shriek-worthy $31 million over the four-day frame. Mama will become the second straight chart-topper for star Jessica Chastain, who reigned atop the box office last week with Zero Dark Thirty.
