X-MEN' AND 'ALICE' TO BOOST MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND AFTER LAST YEAR'S HOLIDAY APOCALYPSE

X-Men Apocalypse Alice Through The looking Glass

Franchises — big, strong four-quad ones — make all the difference over the Memorial Day weekend. While that might be a duh of a statement, consider how often studios have tried to launch original fare over the four-day holiday and flopped: Disney in 2010 with Prince Of Persia, or Warner Bros. in 2014 with Adam Sandler’s Blended.

But, not this time.

After Disney and 20th Century Fox delivered some of the biggest duds at the Memorial Day box office last year with Tomorrowland ($42.7 million four day) and MGM’s Poltergeist ($26.3M four-day debut), this year both studios are changing it up with bigger brands: Alice Through The Looking Glass and X-Men: Apocalypse, respectively.

That combo, which together could reach $160M, is set to push the four-day B.O. up by at least 55% over last year’s FSSM total of $194.9M. Last year’s figure was the third-lowest Memorial Day weekend at the box office since 2005 after 2012’s $194M and 2010’s $192.8M. This year’s holiday could potentially rank as the second best with a four-day total of $300M-plus. 2013 posted the best Memorial Day weekend holiday ever with $314.2M.

x-men apocalypse

The fourth Bryan Singer-directed X-Men movie will hit 4,100 estimated theaters starting Thursday night at 7 PM praised by exhibitors but scorned by critics. Apocalypse is currently the worst-reviewed X-Men per Rotten Tomatoes at 52%. However, if Fox is lucky, the tweeds won’t curb any cash. Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand didn’t blow critics’ toupees off with a 58% rotten score, and that wound up being the franchise’s best opening of all time ($122.9M) and title ($234.4M domestic) in the series.

Conservative projections have Apocalypse in the low $80M range, but many analysts think it has a shot at $100M. Two years ago, propped by a critical score of 91%, X-Men: Days Of Future Past made $110.6M over FSSM and became the second-highest-grossing X-Men movie with a domestic B.O. of $233.9M. I hear Apocalypse is tracking close to Days Of Future Past with guys being the strongest quad; however, this time there are more women interested. Fox will have all the mutant powers of PLFs and 3,000 3D bookings. No Imax on this X-Men; Alice ate all of those up. Estimated production cost on Apocalypse is $178M, which is 11% cheaper than Days Of Future Past.

Apocalypse opened last weekendabroad with $101.6M in 76 markets on 20,796 screens. That number beat the debut of X-Men: Days Of Future Past at today’s exchange rates. South Korea opens tomorrow.

In this X-Men, the mutants battle the super mutant – Apocalypse – played by Oscar Isaac. And it stars the young bunch of X-Men played by Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, the baby-faced characters that Fox introduced in Matthew Vaughn’s 2011 X-Men: First Class. There’s a few new characters thrown in, specifically Olivia Munn as Psylocke.

With Alice Through The Looking Glass, Captain America: Civil War, The Jungle Book and Zootopia, Disney is a tear, and will have its product on close to 10,000 screens by Friday. Alice 2 in 3,750 theaters is looking at $55M-$60M over four days, and will achieve some growth from such tarts as 3,100+ 3D locations, 380 Imax, 77 PLF, and 79 D-box sites. Something to consider with this Alice in addition to any accusations of sequelitis for its projected lower-than-original opening: When Alice In Wonderland opened in March 2010 to $116.1M, it was the first major 3D film post the Avatar craze. Seventy-one percent of Alice In Wonderland‘s B.O. was generated by the format. In addition, Alice In Wonderland didn’t face the type of competition and hefty holdovers this weekend boasts. Alice 2 is directed by The Muppets and Flight Of The Conchords creator James Bobin, not Tim Burton. But the original gang is back with Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter and Matt Lucas, with Alice trying to save the Mad Hatter. Looking Glass‘ price tag of $170M before P&A is 15% less than Alice In Wonderland.

ANGRY BIRDS - THE WALK

Last weekend’s top new entries, Sony/Rovio’s The Angry Birds Movie and Universal’s Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, will have the benefit of the holiday working in their favor with a 40%-45% drop in their four-day versus three-day figures. On the high end, Angry Birds is looking at $23M and Neighbors 2 at $13M.

Jungle Book is heading into its seventh weekend — currently Jon Favreau’s highest-grossing film of his directing career with $328.6M domestic/$860.3M worldwide. When does the cover finally close on Jungle Book? There’s no doubt the movie stole family business from Angry Birds last weekend. JB made $10.9M in its sixth session, a B.O. haul that’s within the vicinity of what Jurassic World ($11.5M) and Avengers ($11.2M) posted at the same point during their runs. A final domestic B.O. of $350M wouldn’t be unheard of.

Why are people still going? Says one studio executive, “There’s a need to see this movie in the theater. The artistry, and use of technology demand that the movie be seen in a movie theater. This is what has made Jungle Book stand out from other movies in the marketplace.” (Via Deadline)
'THE FLASH' REVEALS IDENTITY OF THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK:
05/24/16 @ 10:15 pm EST
Source: The Hollywood Reporter | Categories: Flash | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment




[Warning: this story contains spoilers from Tuesday's season two finale of The Flash, "The Race of His Life."]

John Wesley Shipp's days as a speedster are no longer behind him on The Flash.

The original Barry Allen from the 1990 The Flash series has played father to Grant Gustin's Barry Allen on The CW reboot for two years. But the season two finale revealed that, just one episode after Henry Allen's tragic death at the hands of Zoom (Teddy Sears), Shipp is also playing the identity of the man in the iron mask that Zoom kept locked up in his lair. But this isn't just another Earth's version of Henry Allen. Shipp is the Earth-3 version of Jay Garrick, the original speedster that Zoom/Hunter Zolomon was pretending to be all year to get closer to Barry and the S.T.A.R. Labs team.

"I never saw this coming," Shipp tells The Hollywood Reporter of the twist. "I left at the beginning of the season, I came back once, but for the most of the season, I was gone. So to be brought back as part of a triple whammy, first with Henry's death, which I expected, then the reveal of the man in the iron mask, which is me, which I didn't expect, and then I certainly didn't expect the man in the iron mask to be Jay Garrick. It's a triple whammy for sure."

But Shipp wasn't told about this shocking revelation in any concrete way.

"I went up on March 1 to film the last four episodes and I began hearing things," Shipp says with a laugh. "I was fitted in this costume that was all brown and shredded and like a prison costume. But it obviously wasn't a Henry Allen costume. And then I started hearing about fittings for an iron mask. I wrote [executive producer] Greg [Berlanti] and email saying, 'I'm starting to hear things about characters that I may or may not be playing going forward. What's going on here?'"

Shipp continues with a laugh, "I was dying for him to talk to me. Of course he got back to me within three minutes and he was like, 'Oh my God, I thought they had already talked to you!' So we had a great conversation and he laid out this story for me and the series of reveals in the last couple of episodes. I have to tell you, my mind was blown."

When Shipp first began to process the big Jay Garrick revelation, he wasn't sure how he felt about it.

"I had a couple of reactions. One is that it's great TV," Shipp says. "And it's really an expert channeling of fan expectations, because the audience always wanted me to be Jay Garrick from the very beginning. And I felt some apprehension of assuming the role of a costumed superhero, a quarter of a century later after I had done it before."

While viewer speculation ran rampant all season long about who was the man in the iron mask, Shipp didn't have any ideas or theories of who he thought it would be.

"The writers know how to keep things secret and how to throw everyone off," Shipp says. "I also think it worked to our advantage that absolutely everyone was convinced that Henry Allen was actually Zoom. When they turned out to be wrong about that, they were a little gun shy about being burned twice by saying that I was the man in the iron mask."

But Shipp was glad that he didn't have to play this speedster role right out of the gate.

"When this role came to me initially, I wanted to play Henry Allen. I didn't want to suit up again right away," Shipp says. "'Is this all this guy can do? Run around in a costume?' But Henry Allen was a quiet, truthful, emotional character grounded in grit. He was a true character role in the midst of all this action and adventure. Having done that for two years, now I feel like, OK, I've proven myself again as an actor. Now maybe I can get in and have a little fun as a costumed superhero again."

What excites Shipp the most about taking on the new role is the acting challenge of making this character completely different from Henry Allen.

"He looks like just Barry's father but it's vital that he not be Henry Allen," Shipp says. "Coming out of the iron mask, my challenge was: how do we let the audience know right away that this is not Henry Allen?"

And that means Jay's dynamic with Barry is going to be completely different from Henry's.

"Barry just lost the person he's closest to, his father, the person he could be vulnerable with, who he could cry with," Shipp says. "They had a very physical, hands-on relationship. It was very important to Barry. But that's not who Jay is. Jay has no idea when he comes out of that iron mask, the emotional mine field that he is walking into. Going forward, that's going to be interesting to explore."

Of course, Jay's appearance means quite a lot to Barry.

"He wants to have the same relationship with Jay that he had with his father, but Jay is coming from place of, 'That has nothing to do with who I am,'" Shipp says. "Barry and Jay have to make their own relationship which will be separate and distinct from the Henry and Barry relationship. That was the challenge."

He continues, "This isn't the Henry/Barry relationship in another form. Jay is a very different guy. People say that I, John Wesley Shipp, am the original Flash, but he's the original original Flash. This is the Golden Age Flash, the head of the Justice Society. This is the real Flash daddy. I have to remind myself of that, because there were some aspects of the Henry/Barry relationship that I treasured, the absolute emotional vulnerability, being a safe haven for him, that emotional connection. It's going to be very tempting for me to want to go back and play that dynamic again, but the Jay/Barry dynamic is going to be very different."

It's pretty coincidental timing that The Flash would introduce the founder of the Justice Society of America right at the same time that Legends of Tomorrow revealed that Justice Society member Rex Tyler aka Hourman (Patrick J. Adams) would have a major role in season two of the Arrow/The Flash spinoff series.

"There have been endless suggestions and possibilities [that I can cross over to Legends as Jay Garrick]," Shipp says. "Jay Garrick formed the Justice Society. Not that I know of anything concrete, but this character is so open-ended. Henry Allen had a shelf life. He had one purpose: to be there to support Barry. Jay Garrick, it's wide open. Who knows what we're going to see? That's very exciting."

Shipp is grateful that his time on The Flash will extend long after his first character's tragic death.

"It has been indicated to me that I will play an important role going forward, again," Shipp says. "But this is Grant Gustin's The Flash. He is the speedster on the show. I will be privileged to show up and support his journey in any way that I can. But it has been indicated to me that the palate is so much broader now and there's so many more things I can do on the show now."

But most of all, he's relieved that he can finally live up to fan expectations when it comes to who he's playing on The Flash.

"No matter where I go, I always get the same message from fans: 'Yes, we love you as Henry Allen, but we really were hoping you'd be Jay Garrick,'" Shipp says with a laugh. "Now that that's coming to fruition, I can't wait to see what's going to happen on the Twitterverse. I can't wait to see fans' reactions when suddenly, I'm dawning the mantle of the character that just about every Flashfan wanted me to play from the get go. That's going to be a wonderful treat for the audience. I'm just going to bathe in the reaction."

The Flash season three returns this fall on The CW. (Via THR)

BATMAN V SUPERMAN' FALLOUT: PRODUCER CHARLES ROVEN TO SHIFT ROLE ON DC MOVIES
05/24/16 @ 7:27 pm EST
Source: The Hollywood Reporter | Categories: DC | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


The veteran could move to an executive producer position on some films instead of day-to-day manager as Warner Bros. seeks to revamp its superhero slate.

Charles Roven, the veteran producer who has worked on every DC Comics movie at Warner Bros. since 2005’s Batman Begins, is no longer producing certain DC movies, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Talks are underway to have Roven — who was a producer on Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as the recently completed Suicide Squad and next year's Wonder Woman —segue to a different role going forward, likely that of an executive producer who is not involved in day-to-day production. However, he potentially could continue to be a producer on some sequels to the movies he's currently producing.

The extent of Roven's involvement, and which titles he would work on, is "evolving," according to multiple sources, who also stress that no final decisions have been made."

Roven is a key member of not only the DC slate but of the Warner Bros. family," says a studio spokesman.

The move comes as Warner Bros. continues to scrutinize its DC movies in the wake of BvS’s so-so performance at the box office and chilly reception from audiences. The movie, released March 25, wrapped its run with $871 million worldwide with a production budget of at least $300 million. While Warners insists the movie will be profitable, it was meant to kick off the studio’s DC cinematic universe with a billion-dollar bang, but instead was met with an unenthusiastic response from fans for being too dark and unheroic.

In stark contrast, Marvel Studios, well into its cinematic universe with 13 movies, has seen outsized success for its similarly themed Captain America: Civil War, which pits its heroes against each other. Civil War has earned raves from fans and critics and has grossed more than $1 billion in about three weeks.

Warners, which leverages its DC IP across multiple channels, among them publishing and video games, now is taking steps to course-correct its approach as it develops its superhero slate. It recently shuffled its executive ranks to have executive vp Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, DC's chief content officer, co-run the newly created DC Films. It also is seeking to hire a more established director on The Flash (2018) after parting ways with screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith, who initially was attached to make his directorial debut with the project.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST' TEASER TOPS 'STAR WARS: FORCE AWAKENS' IN FIRST DAY

Talk about the power of femmes.

The first teaser trailer for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast was viewed a record 91.8 million times in its first 24 hours — besting previous champ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Age of Ultron (each of them Disney films as well).

The second teaser trailer for Force Awakens garnered 88 million views, followed by 61 million views for Captain America: Civil War, 55 million views for the second teaser for Force Awakens, and 34 million views for Avengers: Age of Ultron, according to Disney.

Beauty and the Beast, directed by Bill Condon, is a retelling of Disney's classic 1991 animated film that stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. Kevin Kline, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson also star in the film, which hits theaters March 17, 2017.

The teaser trailer debuted on ABC's Good Morning America Monday morning before appearing online around the globe. On Monday night, it also aired during the Bachelorette premiere on Disney-owned ABC, while it will be seen on the big screen this weekend before the studio's Memorial Day tentpole, Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Dave Hoberman and Todd Lieberman produced Beauty and the Beast, while Alan Menken, who won two Oscars for the 1991 animated movie, is doing the score.

AMC'S "PREACHER" DEBUTS TO MODEST RATINGS

Last Sunday evening, "Preacher" debuted onAMC to modest ratings. Deadline reports the premiere pulled in 2.4 million total viewers with 1.1m in the key 18-49 demographic.

In comparison to the network's debut of "Into The Badlands," which scored 6.39m viewers in the same time slot in November, "Preacher" got off to a soft start. The premiere faced some heavy competition in its time slot, as it aired during the Billboard Music Awards and the NBA and NHL playoffs as well as a new episode of "Game of Thrones."

Nevertheless, "Preacher" was the second-best scripted series debut of 2016 with its 0.9 key demo results; it falls just behind FX's "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" premiere.

Airing prior to "Preacher," "Fear the Walking Dead" saw 4.4m total viewers with 2.41m in the key demographic. This 1.9 demo rating continues to be an average showing for the series, on par with the previous five episodes of the series.

Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's acclaimed comic, "Preacher" stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Jesse's ex-girlfriend Tulip, Gilgun as his vampire friend Cassidy, Colletti as Arseface and Lucy Griffiths as Emily, a character created for the TV show.

Developed for television by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin, "Preacher" airs Sundays at 9 pm EST on AMC.

This week sees the release of the gorgeous-looking Captain America #1 by Nick Spencerand Jesus Saiz.

And it will utterly change the history and very nature of Captain America. This was probably the big announcement originally planned by Marvel for yesterday in the wake of DC Universe Rebirth spoilers but it’s looking like it’s now been held back.

So what is it?

Well, it’s not the kiss with Sharon Carter, who notices how much older than Steve she now looks. Not even the liberal-left wing jibe on how unemployment is driving Hydra recruitment.

Because this is the issue in which we get Nick Spencer’s The Anatomy Lesson moment.

The Anatomy Lesson being the second issue of Swamp Thing by Alan Mooreand Steve Bissette where it is revealed that Swamp Thing was never Alec Holland, just the memory of him, preserved in vegetable matter.

Everything you knew was wrong. (Via Bleeding Cool)
