Wednesday's haul included $2.3 million in Tuesday night previews. Coco is playing in 3,987 theaters in North America.
Justice League took in $10.5 million from 4,051 theaters for a domestic total of $122.4 million.
At this pace, Coco, about the popular Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, should have no trouble winning the turkey trot with a five-day debut north of $70 million.
Between them, Disney...
“Obviously you don’t have real dinosaurs — sometimes you have people playing dinosaurs — but we love animatronics and we’re trying to do as much with them as possible,” he said of the sequel. “I think animatronics bring soul and reality to it. We’re trying to find the balance between animatronics and CGI in order to cheat the audience so they
Director Marie Noelle’s biopic about Marie Curie, the Polish-born chemist who was the first woman to win the Nobel prize, is something of a tacky treat. Roughly 35% science talk and 65% soap opera, it has adulterous shenanigans and a strong-willed heroine (Polish actor Karolina Gruszka) defying sexism, xenophobia and antisemitism (even though she isn’t Jewish) to make it in a male profession.
The first part unfolds in a non-toxic soft-focus haze, all sun dapples and smiles, as Marie and her beloved hubby Pierre (Charles Berling) bask in acclaim after their crucial research on radiation is recognised by the Nobel committee.
Social issue thriller “The Unseen” tells the story of a couple, a pregnant Quechua girl and her creole partner, trekking in a desperate state across the Bolivian Highlands, now a post-apocalyptic wasteland devoid of natural resources and ruled by a bloody militia, in an attempt to reach the Pacific Ocean, where they hope a safe haven awaits them.
The film marks the helming feature debut of Nicolás Puenzo, son of veteran Argentine filmmaker Luis Puenzo, after many years working as a cinematographer or producer on projects such as “Cromo” and “The German Doctor”, both collaborations with his sister, the director Lucía Puenzo. In “Cromo,” a 12-episode TV drama currently streaming in Netflix, Nicolás Puenzo also co-directed.
Suburbia was always poisoned. Not much in Us history is as blandly shameful as the National Housing Act of 1934. Designed to insure mortgages and encourage home owning, the heart of the policy was “redlining”: underwriting loans in areas deemed safe financial bets, refusing those that were not. America being America, the real red line was racial. As prim new developments sprawled across the postwar nation, banks and mortgage brokers had official licence to reject black applicants – and anyone looking to buy a house where black people lived. For much of the 20th century, if you needed help to buy an American home, being white was not enough. You had to live among other white people, which meant
It’s a funny thing – or rather an intensely and overwhelmingly unfunny thing – but this can be a moderately successful film until Mel Gibson shows up and opens his mouth. Or even just smiles. Then he’s a kind of grinning death’s-head of unfunny, toxically irradiating the entire film with poison rays of conceited non-charm. Like the recent and rather better movie A Bad Moms Christmas, this sequel franchises a hit comedy by bringing in the older generation. Brad (Will Ferrell) and Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) are the father and stepfather, who have agreed to be co-dads for their kids. But now their own fathers show up for the Christmas holidays. Naturally, reformed tough guy Dusty has an unreformed alpha dad: Kurt, played by Mel Gibson.
The announcement came at the end of the now annual “MST3K” Turkey Day Marathon, as stars Felicia Day and Jonah Ray, alongside creator Joel Hodgson, shared the news. Check out their reaction below:
“MST3K” has had quite the journey since its inception nearly 30 years ago. After an epic run that began in 1989, eventually migrating from local Minneapolis TV to Comedy Central and the Sci-Fi Channel, “MST3K” was initially canceled in 1999. Then, it returned to its fans after a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. While the first season of the show, released by Netflix in April 2017, was thus fan-sponsored,
Kicking off proceedings will be the keynote presentation by Mohen Leo, creative director and visual effects supervisor at ILMxLAB, an immersive entertainment and Vr laboratory belonging to Lucasfilm, Industrial Light and Magic, and Skywalker Sound. While Leo is expected to share insights about storytelling for immersive entertainment, “Star Wars” fans in Singapore will be hoping that he provides a sneak peek into “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire,” a Vr joint venture between ILMxLAB and The Void, that is designed to transport users to a galaxy far, far away.
The conference continues with Allen Foo, founder and chief
Singh’s “The Song of Scorpions,”, starring Khan, Golshifteh Farahani and Indian cinema legend Waheeda Rehman, is playing as a special presentation at the Singapore International Film Festival, part of the Singapore Media Festival. Singh’s previous film “Qissa: The Tale of a Lonely Ghost” also starred Khan.
“As with all film directors, I suppose, I have a few film scripts juggling in my head. I await the one that keeps flying in my imagination while the others steadily fall away,” Singh told Variety. “At the moment, that one seems to be my next film with Irrfan Khan. It will be my third film with him, a kind of conclusive trilogy bringing to some resolution, I hope, the themes that have been haunting me since “Qissa” and have continued to pursue me with “The Song of Scorpions.”
