'Kingsman' and 'LEGO Ninjago' Ready to Add to September's Record Pace

20 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

September 2017 is currently pacing 15.6% ahead of 2016 with a calendar gross of $467.3 million, putting the month on a record pace, $48 million ahead of where 2015 was at the same time period before delivering $626.4 million, the largest September calendar gross ever. Almost half of September's total at this point is thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line's It, which is looking to do strong numbers again this weekend, but will fall from its #1 perch after two straight weeks on top. Debuting in wide release this weekend is Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle and it should have enough juice to take the weekend top spot while Warner Animation Group's The LEGO Ninjago Movie is looking to finish in the runner-up position. Entertainment Studios' is going social with the R-rated horror Friend Request debuting in just over 2,500 theaters and likely to finish in the top five (albeit with minimal returns) while Roadside Attractions is »

Matthew Vaughn Blames ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ for Delay of His ‘Flash Gordon’ Remake

29 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Matthew Vaughn signed on to direct the “Flash Gordon” remake in 2015 and there’s kind of been radio silence since — now, the “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” director says he’s still developing the project but a recent blockbuster threw a monkey wrench into his idea. “Yeah, we’ve been working on it,” he told Collider. “For me, the only problem with ‘Flash Gordon’ is ‘Guardians ’ kind of stole what I would have liked to have done with it.” The filmmaker, whose credits include 2010’s “Kick-Ass” and 2011’s “X-Men: First Class,” said that it’s taking him a bit longer than he. »

‘Friend Request’ Review: Delete Your Account

29 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The silly but effective “Unfriended,” that 2014 thriller about a vengeful ghost killing off her high-school tormentors one by one in a Skype chat room, was no classic, but it’s looking more like one when compared to “Friend Request,” an utterly idiotic movie that uses social media as a conduit for witchcraft and mayhem. If nothing else, this supposed horror movie ranks among the most unintentionally funny films of recent vintage, starting with the periodic on-screen appearance of the heroine’s Facebook friend count as it spirals downward, which is presented as equivalent to the tragedy of a string of murders. »

San Sebastián: Alicia Vikander on ‘Submergence,’ Modern Love and Women in Cinema

38 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In an early flashback in “Submergence,” Wim Wenders’ latest film starring Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy, McAvoy’s James More, a British spy, jogs manfully past Vikander’s Danielle Flinders on a romantic Atlantic beach in France.

He suggests lunch. And that is about the last time in their courtship and seduction that he, a prototype man of action, really makes the moves. It’s Danny who keeps him waiting for lunch, because of her work, moves their table conversation from professional to personal, squeals “chicken!” when she has opened her hotel bedroom door and he doesn’t react, pulls him gracefully into her bedroom; and leads in their foreplay.

That, Vikander said presenting the film at San Sebastian with Wenders, was however par for the course for modern love. “Maybe for a young generation that is reality in the sense that it can be both ways. It’s about personality not gender.”

Remember Pennywise’s creepy dancing scene down in the sewers from “It?” Well, imagine that scene playing to your favorite songs like A-ha’s 1984 hit “Take on Me” andOutKast’s “Hey Ya!” That’s exactly what some genius did on Twitter — making Pennywise dance to a variety of different songs, including “Everytime We Touch,” “The Macarena,” “Shake it Off,” “I’m Blue” and “Barbie Girl.” The social media guru even matched “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” … just slowed down a tiny bit.

‘The Tiger Hunter’ Review: Danny Pudi’s Got Big Dreams as a 1979 Immigrant

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

In the most piercing scene of “The Tiger Hunter,” a half-dozen Indian immigrants who share a Chicago apartment explain how each makes a living. Like protagonist Sami (Danny Pudi, “Community”), nearly all of those men was trained as an engineer. But in America, one drives a cab. Another walks dogs. A third washes dishes. Sami’s introduction to his new roommates is played for laughs. His new friend, Babu (an agreeably hammy Rizwan Manji, “Schitt’s Creek”), claims to work as a “wallet” (he means “valet”) — a joke that plays on some Indian Americans’ muddle between the letters V and. »
