THE CROODS: A NEW AGE Poster & Trailer Announcement

Glass Rules The Holiday Weekend

For the long weekend, it was Glass that scored the top spot, earning $47 million across four days.

Despite that apparent success, M. Night Shyamalan's long-awaited follow-up to Unbreakable and slightly less long (but no less anticipated) sequel to Split still emerged as something of a disappointment in terms of earnings, falling a hair below expectations. Still, with a $20 million budget and more than $95 million worldwide after a few days on release, it's hardly a flop.

Glass Movie Review 'Found myself in love with the look, the feel, the characters all over again'-

Glass pushed The Upside down to second place, where it made $18.3 million in the four days. Aquaman has now spent five weeks in the charts and it's still swimming strong, dropping to third on $12.5 million.

Yet perhaps a bigger story than the arrival from Shyamalan's latest was the surprise success of an anime title. Dragon Ball Super: Broly was released on just 1,236 screens compared to Glass' nearly 4,000 and it still earned $11.4 million for the three-day weekend and nearly $22 million total. Not bad for a movie that enjoyed little mainstream promotion.

Fifth was Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, fresh from a brace of awards this weekend and looking like a potential surprise Oscar winner. It earned $9.7 million while A Dog's Way Home fell to sixth on $9.6 million and Escape Room was pushed to seventh, where it made $6.75 million.

Mary Poppins Returns bobbed down another couple of spots to eighth, adding $6.73 million, ahead of Bumblebee, which earned $5.8 million. Finally, at 10th On The Basis Of Sex took in $4.6 million.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …

Under the Skin Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson To Play A Sexy Alien
Scarlett Johansson as the perfect woman? A perfect alien woman?

That is what FilmNation is selling at AFM, launching Under the Skin, a sci-fi drama from Sexy Beast writer-director Jonathan Glazer.

“Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey -- her voracious sexuality.”
But, wait, there’s more. “She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.”

Glazer co-wrote the script with Walter Campbell and is eying a production late spring 2011.

In a statement, FilmNation CEO Glen Basner said, “We’re so very excited to be working on t…

Michelle Williams To Star In 'The Challenger' About The 1986 Space Shuttle Disaster

The tragedy took place when the Space Shuttle Challenger broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, killing all seven crew members, including McAuliffe.
