'Ralph' Reigns Over Slow Weekend at the Box Office While 'Aquaman' Dominates in China Debut

'Ralph' Reigns Over Slow Weekend at the Box Office While 'Aquaman' Dominates in China Debut
The domestic weekend was, for the most part, as light as was expected. While it wasn't the lowest grossing weekend of the year so far, it was the second lowest with the top twelve delivering a combined $77.8 million. This is all in advance of what should be a profitable holiday season to come and we got a hint as to just how profitable it could be with the launch of WB's Aquaman in China this weekend where the film delivered a massive $93.6 million, becoming the #1 film globally from one market alone. Beginning with the domestic box office, while it looked like it might be neck-and-neck between Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet and Universal and Illumination's The Grinch at the top of the box office following Friday's estimates, Ralph carried the weekend as expected, though The Grinch wasn't far behind. Ralph brought in an estimated $16.1 million for the weekend,

Disney's 'Ralph' to Threepeat Over Slow Box Office Weekend

Disney's 'Ralph' to Threepeat Over Slow Box Office Weekend
With no new wide releases this weekend, outside of the re-release of Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List, we're looking at what might be the lowest grossing weekend of the year so far. The top of the box office should, once again, be a near mirror image of the prior weekend with Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet leading the charge for a third weekend in a row while films such as Focus's Mary Queen of Scots and Neon's Vox Lux begin their limited release roll-outs. At the top of the box office, Disney Animation's Ralph Breaks the Internet is looking at a third weekend at #1, this time driving toward a $16 million three-day for a domestic cume topping $140 million by the end of the weekend. Animation should also take second place in Universal and Illumination's The Grinch, which topped $200 million last weekend and will now easily pass 2012's The Lorax after this weekend.

Wreck-It Ralph 2 Aims for Rare Box Office Threepeat This Weekend

Wreck-It Ralph 2 Aims for Rare Box Office Threepeat This Weekend
It's going to be another quiet weekend at the box office, as few wide releases are making their way to theaters. Oscar hopeful and recent Golden Globe nominee The Favourite is getting an expansion, Steven Spielberg's all time classic Schindler's List is getting a re-release and both Mary Queen of Scots and Vox Lux will open in limited release. That means, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Creed 2 and The Grinch are all set to have another great weekend.

In a rare occurrence, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is going to win its third straight box office weekend in a row with anywhere between $11 and $15 million. Though, it's probably going to be closer to that $15 million number. Disney's sequel has already grossed $122.3 million domestically and still has a long way to go worldwide. Safe to say, this is another big win for the Mouse House in 2018.

Steven Spielberg on 'Schindler's List' Rerelease: "This Is Maybe the Most Important Time"

Steven Spielberg on 'Schindler's List' Rerelease:
Schindler’s List is being rereleased into theaters to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Oscar-winning film, and director Steven Spielberg says the timing could not be more crucial.

Sitting down for an interview with Lester Holt, which will air Wednesday on NBC Nightly News, the filmmaker said the motion picture about Nazi Germany and the Holocaust may be more important now due to the rise in hate crimes, hate speech and propaganda.

"I think this is maybe the most important time to rerelease this film," said Spielberg, according to a transcript of the interview released ahead of ...

'Ralph Breaks the Internet' Remains #1 with $26 Million Post-Thanksgiving Performance

'Ralph Breaks the Internet' Remains #1 with $26 Million Post-Thanksgiving Performance
Outside of only a couple differences, this weekend's box office top ten almost mirrors last weekend's rankings exactly with Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet securing the #1 spot for a second weekend in a row. Among the differences, Universal's The Grinch switched places with Creed II as the animated feature took the runner-up position while topping $200 million domestically. In the bottom half of the top ten Sony's release of the Screen Gems horror film The Possession of Hannah Grace outperformed expectations and earned a seventh place finish. There was no change at the top of the box office, however, as Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet is once again the #1 film in North America, delivering an estimated three-day totaling $25.75 million. From a domestic perspective, the film's performance almost matches that of Moana's dollar-for-dollar after 12 days in release with a domestic total just shy of $120 million. Internationally, the film

He so wishes he could be with everyone, and the knowledge that 5,000 of his friends will be joining together to celebrate his music is a great comfort to him as he recovers. He wishes everyone

6 Horses That Might Remember Liam Neeson

Kirsten Howard Oct 10, 2018

There's no proof (yet) but you never know...

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Huge news broke this week that the lovable Liam Neeson, star of such films as Taken, Taken 2, and Taken 3, has become convinced that a horse that pulled his wagon during production on Netflix's upcoming Coen brothers movie, The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs, remembered him from another film.

The internet meme machine quickly got to work on the revelation after the actor appeared at this year's New York Film Festival, stating to the gathered audience "This horse knew me. He actually remembered me from another western we made a while back … He whinnied when he saw me. And pawed the ground. I love animals. When we worked together before I took special care of him. I fed him treats. Gave him apples.”

That's brilliant, because horses love apples. They do.

Spielberg's "Montezuma"

  • SneakPeek
Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television continues to develop a four-hour miniseries based on Spanish 'conquistador' 'Hernán Cortés' (Javier Bardem), written by Steven Zaillian ("Schindler's List") based on an unproduced screenplay by 1950's Hollywood blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo ("Spartacus"):

Trumbo's original script "Montezuma", explored the relationship between 'Cortes' and 'Montezuma II' (1460–1520), the ninth 'Aztec' emperor, killed during the Spanish conquest of Mexico, bolstered by an army of more than 200,000 natives opposed to the Aztec regime.

Beauty vs Beast: Fashion, Disasters

Jason from Mnpp here with another edition of "Beauty vs Beast" -- the year 1972 is the "Year of the Month" at Tfe for August and coincidentally I'd just listed my favorite films of 1972 over on my own site recently. There I chose five fave films but it's not hard for me to narrow it down further and choose my absolute favorite from that bunch - Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant is my favorite Fassbinder (which is saying quite a bit given my love for Fassbinder) and it stars my favorite Fassbinder actress (I'm Team Margit from way back) in a lesbian bed death match with Everybody Else's Favorite Fassbinder Actress (Hanna Schygulla as the beautiful user Karin)... which makes it perfect for one of these polls!

Liam Neeson Traded His Broadway Seat So He Wouldn't Block Views

Liam Neeson Traded His Broadway Seat So He Wouldn't Block Views
Actor Liam Neeson attended the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Wednesday evening to watch a performance of The Iceman Cometh, which stars Denzel Washington. Being a famous actor, Neeson was given excellent seats to catch the show, but realized that his 6-foot-4 tall body may have obstructed the view of people sitting behind him. So, he decided to get up and switch seats with a couple who were sitting further back. Neeson went from the front of the house back into the cheap seats so that others could enjoy Denzel Washington on Broadway.

The Irish actor isn't known as the most favorite dad in Ireland for no reason. In a recent poll, Liam Neeson took number one as "Favorite Dad," beating out former President Barack Obama, Irish President Michael D Higgins, rugby star Johnny Sexton, and The Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy. On the other side of the spectrum,

When I Just Need to Sob by Myself, Here Are the 6 Movies I Watch

When I Just Need to Sob by Myself, Here Are the 6 Movies I Watch
I'll just come right out and admit it - I'm not usually a crier, which is why my favorite movies are the sad ones. I consider it a success if I'm left blubbering in my seat at a theater, or even better, wrapped up in a blanket surrounded by tear-stained tissues. Letting go of your emotions can be therapeutic, and sometimes all you need is a little cinematic push! But a supersad movie isn't an experience easily shared with family and friends, so I tend to watch most of these heart-wrenching films on my own.

When I'm making my pick for a solo movie night, I gravitate toward sad movies that aren't too dark and depressing. It might seem counterintuitive, but I'll select movies that will make me tear up, yes, but also contain some sort of "hopeful" theme to keep me from losing it altogether. The movies don't need

'Jurassic Park' at 25: How Spielberg's Dinos-Run-Wild Blockbuster Changed the Game

'Jurassic Park' at 25: How Spielberg's Dinos-Run-Wild Blockbuster Changed the Game
Pop culture wouldn't be the same if Michael Crichton had never gone to Disneyland.

It was while watching the animatronic Abraham Lincoln at the park's Hall of Presidents that he began dreaming up Westworld, his 1973 movie and the inspiration for the hit HBO series about murderous robot cowboys. For Crichton, there was seemingly no technological advance he couldn't use to fearful effect – and he was never one not to use every part of a good idea. He'd revisit the idea of a theme park gone awry with his 1990 novel Jurassic Park,
