Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD In AUSTIN

What Is Box Office Mojo and Why Should You Care? (UPDATED)

Here's why the site's disappearance for several days was so important to the Internet. There was a time when nerds like us at SJF would have to open a newspaper to see who won the weekend box office battle. But all that changed when Box Office Mojo came to town. A site that brought tears to OCD's and movie finance buffs alike, BOM was like a Mecca for the numbers behind the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Curious who was the box office champ in the Summer of 1998? BOM. Wanted to compare Tom Cruise opening weekends to see if the actor's stock had fallen? BOM.

In 2008, it was bought by another movie site IMDB, who in turn is owned by your friends at Amazon. During that time, not much changed - the site continued to let the numbers do the talking. But its disappearance from the Web this week - and its subsequent return with no explanation from IMDB - has left us to ponder much bigger questions about its future.


The event took the entire Internet by surpris…

ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY Review. Uplifting & Optimistic Family Movie

ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY Review

I want to thank RAMA for reviewing the film. Make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.


What’s awesome about this film is that it’s got everything I hoped to see in a Disney family movie, and it’s been a while since the last time Disney gave us a fun, heartwarming live action family movie, so it’s nice to have that back. Although I’ve never read Judith Viorst’s classic beloved book, ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY, has become one of my favorite this year, this movie makes me love my family even more.



The story is about this family, the Coopers, who seems to have everything going well for them. The dad (Steve Carell) has been out of the job for seven months but he’s finally getting an interview, the mom (Jennifer Garner) has a prospect of potentially becoming her company’s VP, the daughter (Kerris Dorsey) is an aspiring actress in her school and is set to play her most coveted role yet,…

#NYCC Day 1 Social Media Wrap Up

Here is some insight Social Media Wrap Up  from NYCC Day 1.

Day 1 of New York Comic Con started with a bang, as Walt Disney Studios brought the biggest surprise of the day in the form of newly married George Clooney’s appearance at the Tomorrowland panel. Clooney’s appearance was a big buzz winner for the film, as the actor alone generated 11,496 mentions and no doubt helped to ensure Tomorrowland was the most buzzed about property of the day. Tomorrowland’s first teaser trailer also debuted at the panel and was soon available online for audiences outside of New York to enjoy. The film enjoyed the largest Intent-to-View conversation with 4,459 mentions. Disney’s other panel for Marvel animation Big Hero Six was also a big winner with 13,521 mentions and 4,155 ITV mentions. The TV winner of the day was, unsurprisingly, Game of Thrones. Actors Kristian Nairn (Hodor) and Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne) were on hand to lead a fan forum where they discussed their characters and sparred with…

#BEYONDTHELIGHTS Clip “Lose The Jacket”

What would you do for the price of fame? Noni is learning what it takes for her to be a star, but it might not be what she expected. Does she do what it takes to move up in her career??

#Automata Review. It’s A Machine Made Out Of Old Parts

Automata Review
By: Brandon Wolfe

In 2044, the population of Earth has diminished by 99% down to a scant 21 million survivors due to a series of solar storms that have ravaged the planet. A conglomerate called the ROC Corporation has commissioned a series of robots called Automata Pilgrim 7000s as a means to erect walls and mechanical clouds to shield what’s left of the human race from the resulting radiation. These robots have been programmed to adhere to two protocols: They are not permitted to harm any form of life and they cannot reformat themselves or other robots in ways other than their creators have designated. This screed of place-setting text opens ‘Automata.’ It not only fills you in on what you’re about to see, it also lets you know up front that you’ve already seen all of which you’re about to see.



Our protagonist to guide us through this world is Jacq (pronounced “Jack” but inexplicably not also spelled that way) Vaucan (Antonio Banderas), an insurance agent for ROC who i…

#LeaSeydoux Cast In Upcoming Bond Film. “Femme Fatale”.

Though no official confirmation has arrived from Team EON yet – they tend to wait until just before filming kicks off for such things – Baz Bamigboye is reporting that Lea Seydoux has been cast in the new Bond film in a role described as a “femme fatale”.

Already returning core elements Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, ready for a script read-through next month. And with filming reportedly set to start in six weeks, expect more casting details to start arriving soon.

Very little else is known about the film so far, beyond the fact that Sam Mendes is back to direct (with Hoyte van Hoytema stepping in to replace Roger Deakins as cinematographer) and veteran 007 writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have reportedly been at work polishing the script from Skyfall’s John Logan. Sets are reportedly under construction in Austria, which offers a clue as to one location Bond will be headed, but beyond that, information is locked up in a vault in MI6. Bond 24, or whatev…

Dracula Untold Review. Finds A New Spin On The Old Dracula Chestnut.

Dracula Untold Review
By: Brandon Wolfe

How many Dracula movies have there been? Hundreds, right? Dracula has to be one of the most frequently adapted characters in the history of cinema. His story has been told six ways to Sunday, making it deeply difficult to get excited about any new Dracula movie by this point, even one that announces right in the title that this particular Dracula tale has been untold. It’s been told. They've all been told. Get over yourself, with your “untold.”



Yet one of the chief surprises of ‘Dracula Untold’ is that it does indeed find a new spin on the old Dracula chestnut. This version of the story is something new, a yarn that truly hasn't been told before, something the film accomplishes by throwing out the old story altogether and inventing a new one in its place. ‘Dracula Untold’ positions itself as half-superhero movie and half-‘Braveheart’ with a William Wallace that turns into a flurry of bats. That probably sounds ridiculous, but it certainl…
