March 2015 Films On Our Radar

What does the March box office have in store for us? We pontificate in our On the Radar Preview. Story by Matt Cummings January 2015 was filled so many interesting titles that no one apparently wanted to see, prompting us on a recent Inside the Bucket podcast to wonder why that month landed with such a thud. When February rolled around, we weren't exactly impressed with the plate Hollywood had placed before us, hence the reason why we didn't present a Preview article. Apparently all of you felt the same. February was the lowest since in terms of box office performance since 2006 ($533.2), with 50 Shades of Grey 'leading' before literally melting away after a strong opening. And yet, the box office is up 10%, for a variety of reasons that could repeat in 2016 if distributors have learned their lesson. March has also traditionally been a weak month, as evidenced by less-than-stellar numbers during the last four years: 2014: $741.2 (-24.9% from 2013) 201

Movie Review: Chappie

Chappie is crappy. Review by Matt Cummings Director Neill Blomkamp has been charged with returning the Alien franchise back to James Cameron glory, but until then he's got another futuristic story to tell on Earth. Unfortunately saddled with an over-sexualized oddity that gets in the way of a potentially interesting story, Chappie is crushed under its own weight of random comedy, poor character development, and extremely bad haircuts. The ultra-violent world of Johannesburg, South Africa is the stage for Blomkamp's latest, as robot police officers have taken over, leaving the city nearly crime free. But one robot - the oft-repaired Scout 22 - returns to the facility shot and dead to rights. When it's determined that its battery has been fused and can't be repaired, it's sent to the scrap, until its designer Deon (Dev Patel) rescues it. Already a success in developing the Scouts, he's working on an AI program hat would allow them to experience

*UPDATED* Neill Blomkamp's Alien Sequel to Ignore Alien³ and Alien Resurrection

New film aims to be The Real Alien 3. By Brandon Wolfe After a week of rampant speculation, director Neill Blomkamp, doing a press tour for his upcoming film Chappie , has confirmed that his recently announced Alien sequel will indeed deal with problematic previous installments Alien³ and Alien Resurrection by simply blinking them out of existence, much like Halloween: H20 and Superman Returns did with the preceding sequels they didn’t like. “I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens , so it’s Alien, Aliens , this movie,” said Blomkamp. “It’s a Freudian kind of nightmare. That element to me is what is so appealing, to try to put the audience on the edge of their seat the whole time in a traditional ‘monster stalking you/dark corridor’ way. And then when you mix in the life cycle and the design elements of the Alien, it’s just a powder-keg of creativity to me.” Blomkamp further confirmed to The Guardian that he would “categorically”

What's Behind 2015's Early Strong Box Office?

The reasons for success could change the way movies are made, marketed, and released. Story by Matt Cummings With January and February box office typically representing a rough couple of months for Hollywood, it comes as a surprise that 2015 has been one of the most robust in years. With receipts up 10% from the same period one year ago, theater owners are selling more popcorn and not having to shut down entire wings of their buildings due to the lack of traffic. The reason - or reasons - are simple: American Sniper and Fifty Shades of Grey . These two titans have pushed ticket sales and general admission numbers to points that we typically don't see until April - that's when tentpoles and more lucrative productions begin to arrive, ushering in the wave of Summer blockbusters. Sniper has made $307.7 million since its opening in January, while Grey became the biggest debut for a movie in February history when it bent over a four-day total of $93 million. B
