New Promo For #LADYBIRD

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword Bombs At The Box Office

Two new movies hit the wide release schedule this weekend, looking to challenge Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 for box office superiority in the States... and it did not go well for them. No, Star-Lord, Gamora and the rest easily saw off the competition, grabbing $63 million in their second weekend on release across the pond, according to studio estimates.

That brings the Marvel sequel up to more than $246 million in the US, and the movie is still doing big business overseas, with a global tally of $630 million. As for the newbies, Snatched, the new Amy Schumer comedy looked to draw in the American Mother's Day crowd with its tale of a mother-daughter duo (co-starring Goldie Hawn as her mom) on a holiday that goes wrong. But it opened relatively softly with $17 million. Especially compared to 2015's Trainwreck, which opened to $30 million.

As for King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, which arrived bearing the hopes that it might launch a connected, multi-film universe set in Arthurian times. Yeah, those plans might be on hold unless the movie does well overseas, as the Stateside launch generated $14.7 million. For a movie that cost a reported $175 million before a barrage of advertising costs, that's not good. Arthur might just be better off putting the sword back in the stone and forgetting about it, lest someone claim his mother was a hamster.

Still, the new films shoved Fast & Furious 8 down to fourth from second, with the movie earning $5 million, ahead of The Boss Baby in fifth with $4.6 million.

Sixth was Beauty And The Beast, which added 3.8 million to its already impressive haul of $215 million in the US. How To Be A Latin Lover fell to seventh on $3.7 million. At eighth was a new arrival, albeit one launching in far fewer cinemas than any of the others (around 3,0000 fewer to be exact). Lowriders, about car culture in East LA, has been stuck in release limbo for a couple of years, and actually debuted in the UK before the States. It made $2.4 million in the US, but given its Blumhouse credentials, we can imagine it wasn't exactly a pricey movie to begin with.

At ninth, The Circle continued to underperform with $1.74 million. The tech thriller/satire has just about made its original back in the US, but the hope for profits seems slim. Finally, at 10th, Bollywood success story Baahubali 2: The Conclusion made $1.5 million.

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…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
