3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ashley Judd, whose sexual harassment allegation against Harvey Weinstein helped take down the disgraced power producer, will give her first television interview since the fallout to ABC NewsDiane Sawyer.

‪The interview will air on Thursday across ABC News, including on “Good Morning America,” “World News Tonight With David Muir,” “Nightline,” ABC News Digital, and ABC News Radio.

Although Judd told Variety in 2015 about her borrowing experience being sexually harassed by a mogul, she declined to name him at the time. The “Kiss the Girls” actress went pubic with the allegations in an Oct. 5 article in the New York Times, which led dozens of other women to come forward with their own stories about sexual misconduct. The bombshell report chronicled decades of sex harassment allegations and revealed that Weinstein reached confidential settlements with at least eight women, including Rose McGowan.

“Women have been talking about Harvey amongst ourselves for a long time, and it’s simply »

‘Only the Brave’ and 2 More Bomb, Tyler Perry’s ‘Boo 2’ Will Break Even: It’s Another Troubling Box-Office Weekend

21 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Geostorm,” “Only the Brave,” “The Snowman” — it’s another in a series of terrible box-office weekends. Last year, the same weekend saw three new releases gross a total of $65 million; this year, four new releases totaled $44 million. “Boo 2: A Madea Halloween” performed best, but at the lower end of expectations.

This is a performance that might be expected in January, the dumping ground for loser films. But October is the month where we’ve seen films like “Gravity,” “Gone Girl,” and “The Martian” thrive.

Is it a crisis yet? It’s clear there’s still an audience when a September release like “It” can hit $320 million domestic so far. However, it’s clear that even franchise fans are unreliable.

Tyler Perry's 'Boo 2!' Tops Weekend While Fellow Newcomers Struggle All Around

22 October 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

As expected, Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween topped the weekend box office becoming the seventh of eight Madea films to open over $20 million. Meanwhile, it was rough going for the weekend's four other new wide releases as Geostorm, Only the Brave and The Snowman essentially bombed while Pure Flix's Same Kind of Different as Me failed to meet the low end of expectations after strong group sales on opening day. Overall, the top twelve generated just $81.3 million, over $30 million less than the same weekend last year as October is currently pacing ~13% behind last year. With an estimated $21.65 million, Boo 2! finished atop the weekend box office while falling nearly $7 million short of the original's opening one year ago. The film did receive an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, just a notch below the original Boo!'s "A" and it will be interesting to see what kind of run Boo 2! can leg out. »

Ratings: ‘Shark Tank’ Drowns During Another Soft ABC Sunday

1 hour ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

No one expected ABC to compete last night, but the Disney-owned broadcaster sure didn’t want to see a “0” in front of “Shark Tank’s” key demo Nielsen rating either. As per usual, NBC dominated Sunday’s primetime with “Sunday Night Football” and its pregame show. CBS finished second with an afternoon NFL game bleeding into the 7-11 p.m. day part. Even most Fox shows ticked up versus last week — so that’s… something.
