Criterion is really cranking them out this week, while two of the best films of the year also hit Blu-ray this week, along with one of Netflix’s most buzzed-about shows. Not a bad haul.
Last month audiences fell in love with The LEGO Movie, and the film is on track to make over $250 Million domestically, and quite well overseas. It's made so much money that Warner Bros is looking to make a sequel, though this time with a different director.
Generally studios try to get a sequel out within a three or four year timespan. Whereas 300: Rise of an Empire came seven years after the first. It did rather well, but it's $45 Million opening makes us wonder if the studio is happy the film outperformed expectations, or disappointed that they couldn't get it on screen sooner.
After last week's tussle between Non-Stop and Son of God, this week features another set of movies that will clash over the top spot. They are 300: Rise of an Empire, and Mr. Peabody and Sherman. And it should be close.
This weekend showed box office muscle as an off weekend led to three films doing over twenty million at the box office, while the Liam Neeson film Non-Stop dominated the frame, and fended off Son of God for the top spot.
Well, it's going to be a close race this weekend as Non-Stop enters the fray, as does Son of God, both fighting against reigning champ The LEGO Movie. And there's the Oscars, so it's a movie-centric weekend. Who will take the top slot? Likely the Liam Neesons movie, but it could go to any one of the three.
Though there was little doubt about how this was going to go down, The LEGO Movie trounced everything else that hit theaters, then ate them up and spit them out. Which means that both Pompeii and 3 Days to Kill better hope for better international numbers.
After long anticipation, the full trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy finally hit the web on Tuesday. Now, we have the film's first official poster, which you can see below. Also, Meryl Streep will be taking on feminism in her next film. The acclaimed actress has joined Suffragette, which already stars Carey Mulligan. We also have a cool series of...
There are two wide releases this weekend looking to challenge The LEGO Movie's run at the top of the box office. Will either make a dent? It seems unlikely.
No one really loved the new RoboCop. In fact, most of the pans and praise covered the same territory. Assembly line films get assembly line reviews. And audiences seemed to be able to tell that was the case. Which may be why The LEGO Movie stayed on top. But it may also be because it's really good and everyone loves it.
There was a moment on Saturday where -- when The LEGO Movie did $17 Million -- people thought the film wouldn't get to $60 Million. Yeah, those people were wrong, and the Chris Miller/Phil Lord directed movie made nearly seventy million, which means if we hear word of a LEGO Movie 2 in the next couple days, it's because the film is likely to make over two...
The LEGO Movie is set to have a huge opening, but -- alas -- the record will not be broken for the biggest February opening weekend. That title is currently held by The Passion of the Christ, which did $83 Million. Still, it's going to do huge numbers for what's often one of the weakest months of the year.
The Lego Movie is set to open this Friday February the 7th. Thus far, reviews for the film have been solid to excellent, and the film is expected to do killer business. So, even though the film has yet to be released, Warner Bros. is already set to release a Lego Movie 2.
With 2013 about to end, it's worth looking ahead to what's coming, and what looks freaking awesome. But as we delve into the future, it's worth noting that we can only go on the talent involved and what could be. On paper a lot of films sound awesome (like The Lone Ranger). On paper. That said, here's what we can't wait to watch in 2014.
Though on paper, the idea of a movie about the Lego universe sounds a bit... silly. Like a promotional tie-in gone amuck. But the first full trailer for The LEGO movie makes it look pretty amazing, so color us surprised we're excited to see this one.
Now I'm not sure if you're familiar with the LEGO video games, but they're some of the most adorable ones I've played in the past few years. Everything about the world is completely made out of LEGO pieces, along with a bunch of characters that grumble and squeak at each other as a means of communication. We'll be getting a lot more of that from the superhero side of things with this brand new...
One of the most ambitious projects to hit screens next year is The LEGO Movie. Yes guys, it's all about LEGOs. At Comic-Con 2013, Directors Phil Lord, Chris McKay, and Chris Miller discussed their take on the film that leaves it up to a kid's imagination to create their own stories.
Now that Hollywood has officially decided to make entire films based around preexisting toys and board games like Transformers and Battleship, it was inevitable that we’d eventually get an animated Lego film. And get it we have, with the aptly (if not entirely creatively) titled The Lego Movie. And now we have the first trailer.
