BLADE RUNNER 2049

Although it was the clear cut #1 earner at the box office, Blade Runner 2049 still disappointed with its $31.5 million showing since its budget is estimated at $150 million. Fellow newcomer The Mountain Between Us also under performed with a meager $10.1 million showing (though it did capture the second spot). Overall it was a disappointing box office weekend, as many moviegoers simply decided to spend their weekends elsewhere. Here’s the top 10:

1. Blade Runner 2049 - $31.5 million

2. The Mountain Between Us - Iris Elba and Kate Winslet’s star power wasn’t enough as this movie is a box office misfire. $10.1 million.

3. It - Hit movie collects $9.7 million and to date it’s amassed over $304 million domestically.

4. My Little Pony: The Movie - $8.8 million

5. Kingsman: The Golden Circle - $8.1 million

6. American Made - Tom Cruise flick makes $8 million this weekend and to date has a worldwide gross of $98 million.

7. The LEGO Ninjago Movie - $6.75 million

8. Victoria and Abdul - $4.1 million

9. Flatliners - Critically drubbed remake collects $3.8 million

10. Battle of the Sexes - $2.4 million

Misery, which ranks right up there as one of the best movie adaptations of a Stephen King novel, hits Blu-ray November 28 via Scream Factory. The 2-disc collector’s edition set features a new 4K restoration of the movie plus new interviews with director Rob Reiner (The Princess Bride, This Is Spinal Tap) and special effects artist Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead).

The story centers on a Paul Sheldon (James Caan), a novelist who is recuperating after sustaining injuries in a car accident. Offering him tender loving care is Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates giving an Oscar winning performance), Sheldon’s self-proclaimed “number one fan.” Unfortunately fandom has its price, and Paul may be stuck in Wilkes’ cabin for quite a spell. William Goldman, who also penned Reiner’s film The Princess Bride (based on Goldman’s own novel), is also the screenwriter behind Misery.

Along with the new extras, the disc comes with previous commentaries from Reiner, Goldman, and several features. Are you a fan of Misery and are you looking forward to this Scream Factory release? Feel free to comment below!

So far, critics have been loving Blade Runner 2049. But then again, there probably isn’t a single film critic who hasn’t seen the original Blade Runner multiple times. What about the average young moviegoer, who has never seen the movie in theaters (and, most likely, not at all)? Star Ryan Gosling told us the film’s crew went out of its way to make sure you could still understand the new movie even without seeing the old one.

Blade Runner 2049 is in theaters now.

Being a Star Trek fan has never been a prerequisite for actors looking to get a role in any of the Star Trek movies or TV shows. But when they cast the lead character, Captain Gabriel Lorca, on the new show Star Trek: Discovery, they managed to get a superfan in Jason Isaacs. When he was growing up in the UK, Star Trek was can’t-miss viewing in his house. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jason Isaacs)

Star Trek: Discovery streams on CBS All Access, with new episodes posted each Sunday.

06spielberg1-master768-v3His name is attached to some of the biggest, most influential American movies of the last 50 years: Jaws, E.T. The Extraterrestrial, Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, and Schindler’s List, just to name a few. Now, Steven Spielberg’s name is attached to a biographical documentary airing Sunday night, Spielberg. It’s a fascinating look at one of Hollywood’s most iconic directors, from his youth up until today. Shot by director Susan Lucy, the film shows Spielberg letting his guard down and telling some amazing stories about his life and career.

I’ve had the privilege of speaking with Spielberg several times over the years, and one of our favorite conversations came when I asked him to tell the unusual — and unbelievable — story of how he managed to get a job on the Universal Studios lot. (Click on the media bar below to hear Steven Spielberg)

If you ever get to visit Spielberg’s office at Universal, you’re in for a treat. It’s filled with mementos from his films; for a movie lover, it’s heaven on Earth. Of course, you’ll find items from ET, but you won’t find the one thing Spielberg treasures most about that movie, because that’s something Spielberg carries in his heart. (Click on the media bar below to hear Steven Spielberg)

Over the course of his career, Spielberg’s won plenty of acclaim — and three Academy Awards. And while he certainly wouldn’t mind winning another, he’s good with what he’s already got.

If you are a fan of Spielberg and his movies — or if you’re just a movie fan in general — you won’t want to miss Spielberg, airing Saturday night on HBO.

Roman J. Israel Esp.Headlined by Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel, Esq. centers on a lawyer who has spent his life working on social justice cases. When his partner dies from a heart attack, Israel (Washington) goes to work for a powerful attorney (Colin Farrell) at a high stakes law firm. Working for the common man has been Israel’s calling, and now working cases with the primary target of financial profit understandably disillusions him.

One of the promising factors behind Roman J. Israel, Esq. is Dan Gilroy, the writer/director of Nightcrawler, is behind the camera. With Philadelphia under his belt, Washington knows a thing or two about playing lawyers, and he should easily knock this role out of the park. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!




Roman J. Israel, Esq. opens nationwide November 3.

The new thriller Happy Death Day centers on Tree (Jessica Rothe) who must relive her murder on a daily basis until she actually finds the person behind her demise. Though famed comic book writer Scott Lobdell (Generation X) is the credited screenwriter, director Christoper Landon was also brought onto the project nearly ten years ago to do a rewrite.

“This movie is going to be a ton of fun,” said Rothe. “Our director and writer Christopher Landon has done an incredible job creating a world that’s both very grounded and heartfelt but also kooky and off the wall.”

Happy Death Day, co-starring Israel Broussard, opens nationwide October 13.
