‘Thor: Ragnarok’ to Continue Box Office Reign Over Newcomers With $63 Million

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ to Continue Box Office Reign Over Newcomers With $63 Million
Disney-Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” is still booming at the box office with a projected $63 million at 4,038 North American sites in its second weekend, early estimates showed Friday.

Fox’s detective drama “Murder on the Orient Express” is leading the rest of the pack with about $25 million at 3,341 locations, while Paramount’s family comedy “Daddy’s Home 2” will wind up with about $21 million at 3,575 venues. Both new entries are performing within expectations.

Should the projection for “Thor: Ragnarok” hold, the tentpole would wind up with one of the top 15 second weekends of all time. The third Thor movie ended a monthlong box office slump last weekend when it opened strongly with $122.7 million, the fourth-best launch of 2017, so a decline of under 50% is well above the norm.

Thor: Ragnarok,” starring Chris Hemsworth, has topped $154 million in its first seven days. It will become the ninth-highest domestic grosser of 2017 this weekend and wind up the weekend with around $215 million domestically

The Death of Stalin movie review: the great dictator

MaryAnn’s quick take… Audacious, outrageous, bleakly funny. Not since Charlie Chaplin sent up Hitler and invited us to laugh at terrible reality has there been a movie like this. I’m “biast” (pro): love Armando Iannucci’s work

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Presenting… Monty Python’s production of George Orwell’s 1984. Or damn close to it. So The Death of Stalin is akin to Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, then? Well, sort of. (I definitely scribbled “Brazil” in my notes while watching.) But Brazil was fiction; clearly inspired by actual totalitarian regimes, but entirely fictional. Stalin, however, is based on terrible reality. Perhaps not since Charlie Chaplin’s 1940 satire The Great Dictator has a filmmaker taken on such awful personalities and events and attempted to make us laugh about it all.

Want to Watch Old School Milo Ventimiglia? See “Winter Break”

Now there’s a blast from the past. Sorry, so cliche but I had to. If you’ve seen Milo in anything it’s probably been in Rocky Balboa, Heroes, Grown Ups 2, and a whole list of other appearances including This Is Us. He’s more of a star than many people seem to know but he’s been so under the radar for so much of his career that a lot of people don’t even know his name. They either know him as “that guy” or by a character name that is a lot easier to pronounce. That’s really too bad because he’s

The Hitman’s Bodyguard movie review: protection racket

MaryAnn’s quick take… Reluctant-buddy action comedy feels like unfunny, warmed-over ’90s leftovers. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson look like they’d rather be elsewhere. I’m “biast” (pro): love a good action comedy

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The Hitman’s Bodyguard? What does a hitman need with a bodyguard? This seems to be one of those cinematic quandaries that gets posed because someone thinks it’s enigmatic and clever — like the classic “What does God need with a starship?” — but which is actually destined to become a cinematic punchline. And not in a good way.

The film’s working title: We Got Sweet Amsterdam Tax Credits.

It turns out that The Hitman’s Bodyguard doesn’t actually have a good answer to the question its title prompts. The movie posits that, because of shenanigans at Interpol,

NCIS Season 15 Is Bringing On A New Female Agent For Action,New Details

Recently, CBS put out a news article on their website revealing that we’re about to see a new female agent join the NCIS crew for the upcoming season 15. It turns out that the show has decided to hire actress Maria Bello to portray an NCIS agent that was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army and served two tours in Afghanistan. Their article didn’t reveal the character’s name. So, I guess we’ll have to wait until later on or until she finally arrives on the show to get that intel. Adding to the character’s description, they said, “After joining NCIS, the character built her reputation as the agency's premier forensic psychologist. Unlike the other agents, she can second-guess and challenge Gibbs. So, there will be friction but also mutual respect. She is a positive force, mischievous and at times, acerbic. They say she will

Sony Won’t Release Clean Versions of Films if Directors Disapprove

Updated: After coming under fire, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has revised its “clean version” initiative that allowed viewers to screen edited versions of two dozen of the studio’s films. Sony now says it won’t sell such movies if directors object.

“Our directors are of paramount importance to us and we want to respect those relationships to the utmost,” said Sphe president Man Jit Singh in a statement on Wednesday. “We believed we had obtained approvals from the filmmakers involved for use of their previously supervised television versions as a value added extra on sales of the full version. But if any of them are unhappy or have reconsidered, we will discontinue it for their films.” Related

Add Judd Apatow to the list of filmmakers and creators not too pumped about Sony Pictures’ newly announced “Clean Version” initiative. The filmmaker has issued a very colorful statement regarding the studio’s plan to offer edited — read: “clean” — versions of some of its titles on various streaming platforms. As Variety notes, these “Clean Versions” are the exact same ones used for broadcast TV or airline viewing, adding another weird wrinkle into the story.

Still, Apatow isn’t buying it, and he’s not alone.

The Directors Guild of America and Judd Apatow have objected to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment “clean version” initiative allowing viewers to screen edited versions of two dozen Sony films.

The studio announced on June 7 that it was making the broadcast TV or airline version of these 24 titles available when a consumer purchases a film in its original form on iTunes, Vudu, and FandangoNOW. The DGA said in a statement Tuesday that Sony is violating the guild’s master contract with the major studios.

“Directors have the right to edit their feature films for every non-theatrical platform, plain and simple,” the DGA said. “Taking a director’s edit for one platform, and then releasing it on another — without giving the director the opportunity to edit — violates our Agreement. Throughout the years, the DGA has achieved hard-fought creative rights gains protecting our members from such practices. As creators of their films, directors

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has launched a “clean version” initiative allowing viewers to screen edited versions of two dozen Sony films.

Sony Plans to Release ‘Clean Versions’ of Movies Like ‘Step Brothers,’ And Seth Rogen Is Pissed Off About It
Sony Pictures is making headlines for the introduction of their new “Clean Version” initiative. The effort is an attempt to bring the edited versions of movies that air on broadcast television and airplanes without mature content in them to home viewers through streaming platforms like iTunes, Vudu, and FandangoNOW. So if you ever wanted to stream “Step Brothers” without any curse words or explicit material, then you’re in luck. We’re not sure why you would, though.

Seth Rogen is equally baffled by the new initiative, the first round of which being released includes 24 films. Most of the titles are PG-13 and therefore won’t see too much of a dramatic edit, but that can’t be said for “Step Brothers,” which has to be the most head-scratching title included in the “Clean Version” project.

Seth Rogen Rallies Against Sony Releasing Clean Versions of Raunchy Movies
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment launched a new initiative today called Clean Version, which allows fans to watch versions of movies that have been edited and adapted for a wider family audience. The studio launched their first wave of 24 titles released under this initiative, many of which are not even R-rated, with PG-13 movies such as the original Spider-Man trilogy, the two Amazing Spider-Man movies and much more. These titles will be made available to purchase starting today on Digital HD through iTunes, Vudu and FandangoNow, with the Clean Version found in the Extras section of each movie, so fans will get both the original version and the Clean Version.
