2016’s films ranked

17 February 2017 2:34 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th.

'Lego Batman' to Lead President's Day Weekend Over 'Fist Fight', 'Great Wall' & 'Cure for Wellness'

16 February 2017 2:34 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

President's Day weekend last year was a monster thanks to the $152+ million four-day opening for Deadpool. A year before that Fifty Shades of Grey took advantage of the fortuitous timing with a $93 million four-day opening. This year's new releases*Fist Fight, The Great Wall and A Cure for Wellness*won't be making such big waves as only one looks as if it will find its way into the top three while the others take a backseat to a trio of second weekend holdovers. At the top, look for WB's The Lego Batman Movie to secure a second weekend at #1 and will top $100 million by the end of the day on Monday. The Lego Batman Movie heads into the weekend with strong word of mouth ("A-" CinemaScore), solid reviews (75 on Metacritic) and it remains the widest release of the weekend as the only film playing in over 4,000 theaters.

Disney’s Live-Action Aladdin Producer: “We’re Not Here to Make Prince Of Persia”

8 February 2017 2:56 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

To say that we live in a very fragile political climate would be an understatement. In our increasingly globalized world, there is a pressure to try and represent the diversity that many Americans see day in and day out. Without getting too political, it’s been difficult for Hollywood to embrace this idea. The fact is they like money, and up until recently, it’s largely been white actors who have become the big Hollywood A-listers, and in a continued effort to keep the gravy train going, studios have often clung to those familiar faces, assuming they would result in better box office receipts.

Of course, with those decisions come backlashes. We’ve seen it in films like Exodus: Gods and Kings, Gods of Egypt, Ghost in the Shell, and of course, The Prince of Persia face all sorts of criticism for their choice in leads.

So what does this »

Efm: Brenton Thwaites to star in 'Ghosts Of War'

6 February 2017 12:38 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Highland Film Group kicks off pre-sales in Berlin this week on Miscellaneous Entertainment’s supernatural psychological thriller. CAA will represent North American rights.

Eric Bress will direct from his screenplay about five battle-hardened American soldiers assigned to hold a French Chateau near the end of the Second World War.

Formerly occupied by the Nazi high command, this apparent refuge quickly descends into madness when the troops encounter a supernatural enemy far more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield. 

Thwaites starred in The Giver and Gods Of Egypt and will next be seen in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and recently shot Interview With God and Office Uprising.

Miscellaneous Entertainment’s D Todd Shepherd, Joe Simpson and Shelley Madison are producing Ghosts Of War and finance the project. Adrian Jayasinha will serve as executive producer.

“We’re thrilled to bring Eric’s next intelligent and layered vision to life as he continues to push »

Sluggish China Box Office Brings Down 2016’s Global Totals

25 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Publicly, studio executives tend to be a rosy bunch, predicting that each year’s crop of movies will be better than that which preceded it. But behind closed doors, few in the business were expecting much from 2016.

When the final numbers are tallied, the global box office will probably fall short of last year’s record-breaking $38.9 billion. Most observers expect ticket sales to fall roughly 2% to just over $38 billion. That decline is reason for some alarm, particularly as the shortfall is largely attributable to a slowdown in China. After years of explosive growth, in which returns were expanding at a 40% clip annually, revenue in China was essentially flat in 2016 — a disappointment for the world’s second-largest film market, which had been expected to surpass the U.S. in terms of revenue in a matter of months.

“As China goes, so goes the international marketplace,” notes Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. »

23 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Awards season is here and in full swing, but we can’t always celebrate the great and wonderful, the downright awful needs a whole lot of loving too. That comes in the form of the 37th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards or better known to the masses, The Razzies.

Just announced for this year’s Razzies is the extensive list of nominees of crap cinema-goers had to endure throughout 2016 and hell did we have some corkers? To most, the leading contenders should be of no real surprise, leading the pack is Zoolander No. 2 with a staggering 9 nominations followed closely with the film that made sad Affleck into an internet sensation, Batman v Superman with 8 nominations seeing both nominated in Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Other films with an honourable mention in the worst picture category include Dirty Grandpa and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Batman v Superman and Zoolander No. 2 Lead the 2017 Razzie Nominations

23 January 2017 8:13 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Award season is all about recognizing the best films from the past year, but there is one show that actually does the complete opposite. The Razzies honor the worst in film, so the fewer nominations a film gets, the better it must be. While movies like Suicide Squad and Allegiant only got a little bit of flak, others weren't as lucky. In fact, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scored six nominations for the 37th annual Golden Raspberry Awards. Take a look at the rest of the nominees, and stay tuned for the winners to be announced on Feb. 25, the night before the Oscars. Worst Picture Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Dirty Grandpa Gods of Egypt Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party Independence Day: Resurgence Zoolander No. 2 Worst Actor Ben Affleck, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Gerard Butler, Gods of Egypt and London Has Fallen Henry Cavill, »
