ALIEN: COVENANTAlthough director Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant received its share of buzz, the $97 million budgeted feature managed just a $36 million debut. Although it was good enough for #1, the figure was still below expectations for the film. On the flip side, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had a strong weekend with a #2 finish ($35 million). Here’s this weekend’s top 10:

1. Alien: Covenant - It’s a first rate sci-fi epic, and hopefully the movie doesn’t drop off the face of the Earth in its second weekend. It debuts with $36 million and narrowly beats Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - $35 million

3. Everything, Everything - $12 million

4. Snatched - Amy Schumer/Goldie Hawn comedy makes $7.6 million and to date the film has grossed over $32 million domestically.

5. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul - Family film disappoints with $7.2 million debut.

6. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword - Fantasy epic has a sub-par second weekend with just $6.8 million. Budgeted at $175 million, the flick has made just $27 million domestically!

7. The Fate of the Furious - $3.1 million

8. The Boss Baby - $2.8 million

9. Beauty and the Beast - The movie has made over $1.2 billion worldwide. This weekend, it takes in $2.4 million domestically.

10. How to be a Latin Lover - $1.2 million

jakegyllenhaal1


Whether he’s playing a chiseled boxer in Southpaw or a gaunt, career driven¬† sociopath in Nightcrawler, Jake Gyllenhaal loves challenging himself with each and every role. Having just finished the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park with George, Gyllenhaal was at the Cannes Film Festival to promote his upcoming film Okja.

The picture, directed by Snowpiercer’s Bong Joon Ho, centers on a girl (An Seo Hyun) who goes on a desperate search for Okja, a big animal who has been her closest companion in the South Korea mountains. Tilda Swinton is Lucy Mirando, the CEO who takes Okja to New York and has more capitalistic designs for this creature. Gyllenhaal is Dr. Johnny, the zoologist who works under Mirando.

Click on the media bar below to hear Gyllenhaal talk about the timely aspects behind Okja.

Okja premieres globally on Netflix and will also hit theaters in Los Angeles and New York on June 28.

goodtime1

Robert Pattinson delivered the performance of his career with the A24 drama The Rover, and now he’s back with A24 with the crime thriller Good Time. Directed by Josh and Ben Safdie (Heaven Knows What), the picture centers on Constantine (Robert Pattinson) a crook who attempts to get his younger brother (Ben Safdie) out of prison after a failed bank robbery. During one maddening and violent evening, Constantine does whatever it takes to get his brother out of jail and into safety.

After carving his teeth on the Twilight films, Pattinson could have gone the A-list actor route and done his share of studio driven films. Instead, with works such as The Rover, Life, and The Lost City of Z, Pattinson has aligned himself with more auteur driven projects.

Pattinson looks to be in fine form in this film, which premieres at the Cannes Film Festival (in competition) on May 25. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Co-starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Good Time opens in theaters August 11.

theemojimovie2The Emoji Movie is a fun movie that definitely has its creative button on today’s social media universe. In the world of the messaging app a city called Textopolis exists, and highly emotional emoji named Gene (T.J. Miller) is a bit of an anomaly. Blessed with multiple expressions, Gene wants to simply stick to one expression like his fellow emojis, and with the help of his best buddy Hi-5 and code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris) he searches an answer.

While promoting the film at the Cannes Film Festival, Miller said that The Emoji Movie, while entertaining, also has a resonant theme behind it. “There’s some pretty cool and really valuable lessons in here and some pretty progressive thinking that is wrapped up in a very funny film that’s really heartfelt,” said Miller. “I love the sentimentality of it.” Along with a top notch story, the movie is also blessed with an A-list talent of actors. Click on the media bar below to hear Miller talk about the diversity of The Emoji Movie.



The Emoji Movie, featuring Maya Rudolph and Patrick Stewart, opens nationwide July 28.

Sir Ridley Scott Hands and Footprint CeremonyIn this age of big-screen blockbusters with nine-figure budgets, it’s refreshing to look back at a movie like 1979’s Alien. Though it had the look of a sci-fi epic, thanks to the innovative work of director Ridley Scott (making just his second feature film), it was shot for just $11 million. By comparison, Apocalyse Now, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Steven Spielberg’s 1941 and the James Bond film Moonraker all had budgets bigger than $30 million that year. But Scott put every penny on the screen and, armed with a solid script and an excellent cast (led by Sigourney Weaver, in her first starring role), the film was a huge hit. While it’s now considered a classic, Scott says his aspirations at the time weren’t nearly as high. In fact, he thought of it as a “B movie.”

Scott is back at the helm of the latest installment of what is now the Alien franchise. Alien: Covenant, starring Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston, is in theaters now.

NUP_178406_0007.jpgTen years after it aired its series finale, Will & Grace is coming back. Looking back, it was a landmark show for the LGBT community: Ellen DeGeneres may have been the first star to come out as gay on a TV sitcom, but Will & Grace made it acceptable to the mainstream audience. When the series originally ended — after eight seasons and 16 Emmy Awards — it was a difficult thing for its star, Debra Messing, to take. In fact, when the show went away, she says it created a void that felt a lot like losing a loved one. (Click on the media bar below to hear Debra Messing)

New episode of the revived Will & Grace will air on NBC this fall. Here’s the trailer — what do you think? Are you excited for its return?

trainspotting4

T2 Trainspotting, which featured the twenty year reunion of Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) and his gang of troublemakers (Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle), hits Blu-ray and DVD June 27 via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Trainspotting director Danny Boyle is back behind the camera for this sequel, which has Renton returning home to touch base with Spud (Bremner), Sick Boy (Miller) and Begbie (Carlyle). Though these once rabble rousing lads are now fighting the complacency of middle-age, they are still a combustible unit as soon as they reunite!

Over thirty minutes of deleted scenes is featured on the disc. The movie also comes with commentary from Boyle and screenwriter John Hodge and the featurette “20 Years in the Making: A Conversation with Danny Boyle” and the cast.

baywatch2

It’s been a great week for Priyanka Chopra thanks to ABC’s decision to renew Quantico. The success of that series as well as her international stardom places her in a great time in her career, and now she plays the antagonist who goes up against Mitch (Dwayne Johnson) and Brody (Zac Efron) in Baywatch.

“It’s a twist on Baywatch which is like fun and exciting,” said Chopra. “I think it’s that kind of movie - (people will) go out there and laugh. It’s a big summer movie and it will just make you forget your problems for a while.”

This marks another accomplishment in Chopra’s flourishing career, as Baywatch is her first American film. Click on the media bar below to hear Priyanka Chopra talk about Baywatch:

Baywatch, co-starring Alexandra Daddario (she previously worked with Johnson in San Andreas), opens nationwide May 25.

After being absent from the last few Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Orlando Bloom is back as Will Turner in the newest installment, Dead Men Tell No Tales. The movies have always played well to a younger audience, and with the franchise now 14 years old, fans often tell Bloom they’ve grown up with the films. All of that comes as a bit of a surprise to Bloom, who admits he’s not exactly sure why the movies have made as big an impact as they have with kids. (Click on the media bar below to hear Orlando Bloom)

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens in theaters on May 26

During her time on the series Fargo, Allison Tolman worked with some unique characters. But that’s nothing compared to the task now facing the Emmy-nominated actress: starring alongside a dog! Her new ABC series, Downward Dog, is about the relationship between a millennial and her dog, who’s feeling neglected because of his owner’s hectic work schedule. In taking the gig, Tolman tossed aside the conventional wisdom made famous by W.C. Fields (”never work with children or animals”). While she doesn’t regret the decision, she does admit that Ned (her canine co-star) has become a bit of a doggie diva.¬†(Click on the media bar below to hear Allison Tolman)

Downward Dog airs Wednesday nights at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
