FITS AND STARTS On Digital & VOD December 5

Split Stays On Top Of The Box Office

Though horror has had a recent history of performing well in February box office berths, new scare reboot Rings didn't factor in the enduring popularity of M. Night Shyamalan's Split, which stayed nestled at the top of the US charts for the third week in a row, earning $14.15 million across the Super Bowl weekend.

The movie has now earned an impressive $98.7 million in the States alone, and passed $142 million worldwide, which is a great result for a movie that cost an estimated $9 million to make (before ads etc). As for Rings, the attempt to breathe new life into the J-horror adaptation was shock-blocked in the final tally, earning $13 million for its first weekend of release.

A Dog's Purpose was bumped to third, adding $10.8 million, while Hidden Figures slipped one place to fourth on $10.1 million. Rounding out the top five, and staying in place for another week is Oscar favorite La La Land, enjoying a boosted screen count and plenty of interest. It took home $7.4 million.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter continued to underperform slightly, falling to sixth with $4.5 million, while Sing stuck its koala claws into seventh, staying in place and making $4.08 million.

At eighth we find Lion, which increased its screen count added $4.06 million for a current US total of $24.7 million. In ninth was new arrival The Space Between Us with the date-shifted blend of sci-fi and teen romance proving a tepid combination, and the film opening to a poor $3.8 million. Finally, at 10th and presumably hanging off the edge of the chart while using a surfboard on top of a ride-on lawnmower, was xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, which made $3.7 million this weekend and is up to $40 million in the States and a little more than $152 million worldwide.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Incredibles 2 All-New Teaser Trailer, Poster & Image

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See The Disaster Artist In Cincinnati

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See The Disaster Artist on November 20th at 7:30 PM in Cincinnati.

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau — an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable — into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend — and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
