PETER PAN SIGNATURE COLLECTION On Digital May 29 & Blu-ray June 5

Annabelle: Creation Takes The Top Spot

While other cinematic universes have been stumbling, the films spun off from The Conjuring are humming along nicely, winning decent reviews and box office success. The latest addition is Annabelle: Creation, which offers more details on the history of the possessed doll. This latest horror opened to $35 million, according to studio estimates.

It's another solid scare win for director David F. Sandberg, who made last year's Lights Out and, with more movies coming based on supernatural nasties from the first Conjuring and its sequel, the prospects seem bright.

Annabelle's arrival meant Dunkirk was once again second place with $11.4 million, but that's no worry for the movie, which has been out for four weeks already. Christopher Nolan's latest has passed $153 million in the States alone. At third we find the second new arrival of the week, animated sequel The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature, which earned $8.9 million.

The Dark Tower started to crumble quickly, falling from first place for fourth and adding just $7.8 million. With $34 million from its Stateside earnings, the movie is far from earning back even its production budget. The Emoji Movie rounded out the top five with $6.6 million.

Girls Trip continued to do well, earning $6.2 million at sixth, while Spider-Man: Homecoming fell one place to seventh on $6.1 million.

At eighth we find Halle Berry thriller Kidnap, which added $5.2 million, ahead of this week's final new arrival, The Glass Castle. Despite good reviews, it only earned $4.8 million in ninth, though given its more limited release schedule (just 1,461 screens, the low end of wide release), that's perhaps not as surprising as it might seem. 10th was Atomic Blonde, which took in $4.5 million. Thus far, the Charlize Theron action thriller has earned $42 million in the States.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…

Enter For A Chance To Win Tickets To See TULLY In Dallas

Enter For A Chance To Win Pass To See TULLY on May 1st at 7:00 PM in Dallas.

From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody – the team behind JUNO and YOUNG ADULT – comes a new grown-up comedy with their signature style of irreverence and insight. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron gives an extraordinary performance in TULLY - the story of a parent stretched to her limit, the bonds of female friendship and how we can embrace the messiness of life. While it might not have been intentional, TULLY completes a trilogy that began with JUNO and YOUNG ADULT. Each features a female protagonist at a different stage of her life, and each film explores how complicated it is to find happiness.
