Box Office: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Races Toward $20 Million Opening

Box Office: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Races Toward $20 Million Opening
Fox’s launch of “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” is poised to end the three-week box office reign of “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” with about $20 million at about 3,800 North American locations.

The action thriller has already opened impressively in four markets overseas, starting with South Korea, Australia, and Taiwan taking in $15 million during its first weekend. The movie’s original release date was delayed for nearly a year in order to allow star Dylan O’Brien to recover from injuries sustained during shooting.

O’Brien stars in the dystopian trilogy as Thomas. The 2014 original opened with $32.5 million and grossed $102 million in U.S. receipts, and 2015 follow-up “The Scorch Trials” opened with $30 million and tallied $82 million in domestic box office. Kaya Scodelario and Thomas Brodie-Sangster also star. Wes Ball directed all three films.

The finale sees a group of escapees attempting to break into the legendary Last City in order to save their friends. Most international

Academy Skirts Another #OscarsSoWhite Disaster With a Diverse Lineup, But Who Will Win?

Academy Skirts Another #OscarsSoWhite Disaster With a Diverse Lineup, But Who Will Win?
The Academy has recognized Daniel Kaluuya, Denzel Washington, Mary J. Blige and Octavia Spencer with Oscar nominations in the acting categories and Guillermo del Toro and Jordan Peele in the original screenplay and director slots. Now the big question is how much could the #OscarsSoWhite scenario still potentially create controversy when the final awards are handed out if few winners of color are selected for the major categories.

Two years ago, #OscarsSoWhite drew attention to the all-white nominees in the major acting categories, the second year in a row that it had happened. Since then, the progress for representation and inclusion has moved in fits and starts. Last year saw a record number of nominees from diverse backgrounds, including acting nominees Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Viola Davis, Washington, Spencer, Ruth Negga and Dev Patel.

With Tuesday’s nominations, Kaluuya and Washington were nominated for best actor in “Get Out” and “Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” respectively,

2018 Oscar snubs for Best Picture, Director & Screenplay: ‘I, Tonya,’ ‘The Florida Project,’ Martin McDonagh, Steven Spielberg …

2018 Oscar snubs for Best Picture, Director & Screenplay: ‘I, Tonya,’ ‘The Florida Project,’ Martin McDonagh, Steven Spielberg …
Things went somewhat according to plan when the 2018 Oscar nominations were announced on Tuesday, January 23. However, the name of the game dictates that for every nominee there must be a corresponding snub. We’ve already told you the 16 unforgivable acting snubs, so now let’s look at Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted/Original Screenplay. Is it just us, or does this year’s list of also-rans sting more than usual?

There are nine Best Picture nominees, but there could have been a maximum number of 10. Might that 10th nominee have been “I Tonya”? How about “The Florida Project”? Both factored into Gold Derby’s Best Picture odds for the Top 9, but neither made the final cut on Oscar nominations morning, nor did their original screenplays. Also, don’t get me started on that Best Picture snub of “Coco.”

As for directing, the two notable exclusions are Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,

2018 Oscar nomination surprises: Voters are head over heels for ‘Phantom Thread,’ Denzel Washington

2018 Oscar nomination surprises: Voters are head over heels for ‘Phantom Thread,’ Denzel Washington
Though they usually unfold as expected, the Oscar nominations always throw in a curveball or two that few see coming. That was the case with Tuesday’s slate for the 90th Academy Awards — and they were some welcomed inclusions for the most part. Here are the biggest surprises in the latest Oscar field.

Best Picture: “Phantom Thread

It was the usual suspects in the Best Picture lineup save for one. Instead of “The Big Sick” or “I, Tonya” (more like “Bye, Tonya,” right? Too soon?”), “Phantom Thread” made the cut. Academy voters went gaga for Paul Thomas Anderson’s sartorial drama, giving it six nominations, tied with “Darkest Hour” and just behind “The Shape of Water” (13), “Dunkirk” (eight) and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (seven).

Oscars: 90th Academy Award nominations

Well, it just happened. The nominations were announced moments ago for the 90th annual Academy Awards. We had some snubs, some surprises, and now we finally know the actual Oscar field. This is the end of Phase One, with Phase Two and a campaign for actual wins about to begin. By and large, the main contenders held steady, with The Shape of Water seemingly moving into the pole position overall. Get Out, Lady Bird, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri remain in play as well, though each suffered notable misses this morning.

Oscar nominations: Which of the 15 performers with SAG, Critics’ Choice and Golden Globe bids will be snubbed by Academy Awards?

But as 19 stars have learned to their dismay, their was no point in getting up early to hear the announcement of that year’s Academy Awards contenders.

2018 Oscars: Will one film sweep both actress awards for the 11th time?

2018 Oscars: Will one film sweep both actress awards for the 11th time?
If our combined Oscar odds are correct, the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories will be dominated by the stars of three films: Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf of “Lady Bird”; Margot Robbie and Allison Janney of “I, Tonya”; and Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer of “The Shape of Water.” And if one pair of co-stars wins, it’d be the 11th time both actress awards went to the same film.

The best chance of this happening is with Ronan and Metcalf. The former sits in second place in lead, behind “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri” star Frances McDormand, with 7/2 odds, while her onscreen mother is the favorite in supporting with 11/5 odds.

But after defeating Metcalf at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice, Janney is watching her stock rise quickly. She stands at 5/2 odds, while her onscreen daughter, Robbie, is in fifth in lead with 8/1 odds.

Here Are the 3 Harley Quinn Movies in Contention at Warner Bros.

Here Are the 3 Harley Quinn Movies in Contention at Warner Bros.
There’s little question that “I, Tonya” star Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn from 2016’s “Suicide Squad” — but it’s unclear which of 3 films will feature the bat-wielding psychiatrist-gone-mad.

Warner Bros. is weighing each of the projects as the next platform for Robbie, presently winning acclaim for playing Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya.” Insiders described each of the 3 films for TheWrap, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the uncertainty around where Harley will turn up next: “Suicide Squad 2.” This would be the most obvious place for the former Dr. Harleen Quinzel to pop up. Gavin O’Connor is expected...

Penultimate Predictions a week out from the Oscar nominations

Seven days from now, we’ll know who and what the Academy Award nominees are. My final set of predictions will drop on Monday, but for now, I wanted to tinker just a little bit first. For what it’s worth, over the coming weekend, the Producers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild will be giving out their awards, so while that can’t impact nominations, it’s still noteworthy. They’re arguably the two biggest precursors, and gems of the guild season, so there’s a chance that I might tinker with final predictions next week if something crazy goes on there. That’s a problem for future me though. As you’ll see below, not a whole lot has changed. Ballots are in though, so what’s done is done. I’m working my few Oscar voter sources to see if anything has gotten more love than expected.
