#HappyDeathDay Scares The Box Office

Cementing a very successful period for the company, Blumhouse Productions' Happy Death Day blew past the second weekend of Blade Runner 2049 to nab the top spot at the US box office with $26.5 million, according to studio estimates.

It's an impressive initial haul for the time-looping slasher comedy, which was made for the typically thrifty Blumhouse price of a little less than $5 million. And adding in its limited foreign business so far, the movie has made $31.5 million. By contrast, the Blade Runner sequel, which cost an estimated $150 million (not including marketing) earned $15.1 million this weekend after a launch that saw it win the charts but underperform in terms of expectations. The movie is now on $60.5 million in the States.

Jackie Chan's new action movie The Foreigner entered the charts at third with $12.8 million, while It slipped to fourth on $6 million. Rounding out the top five was The Mountain Between Us, which took a tumble and made $5.6 million.

American Made stayed in place at sixth, adding $5.4 million, while Kingsman: The Golden Circle slipped another couple of places to seventh with $5.3 million. The Lego Ninjago Movie tumbled to eighth and $4.3 million, ahead of My Little Pony: The Movie, which doesn't seem to have caught on with cinemagoers, falling from its initial place in fourth to ninth and earning $4 million this weekend. The Pony pic has taken in $15.5 million from American audiences so far. Victoria & Abdul fell to 10th place, making $3.1 million.

Opening outside the top 10 were Marshall with $3 million in 11th and, more disappointingly given its higher screen count, Professor Marston And The Wonder Women, which took in $737,000 at 14th.

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.
