'Dunkirk' and 'Valerian' Bring Big Budgets to the Weekend, but Will They Bring Big Box Office?

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

Rave reviews pave the way for this weekend's release of Christopher Nolan's World War II feature Dunkirk, a $150 million production critics have declared a "masterpiece" and the first surefire Oscar contender of the year. Additionally, Stx is debuting Luc Besson's $200+ million sci-fi feature Valerian, the second of three original features debuting this weekend amid a franchise laden summer. Dialing back the spending a little, but not the potential, Universal's female-driven comedy Girls Trip carries a meager $19 million budget, but is looking for big results and a possible second place finish as it enters a marketplace begging for something that isn't specifically targeting the male demographic. Poised for a #1 finish, Warner Bros.' release of Dunkirk debuts this weekend in 3,720 theaters, including several IMAX and Plf locations, some of which will be playing the film in 70mm. Nolan's recent history is peppered with three Batman films along with three original features, »

Taron Egerton Replacing Tom Hardy In Elton John Biopic ‘Rocketman’

14 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Musical biopics are notoriously difficult to make, usually because it involves getting tangled web of parties — the artist’s estate, music rights holders, and more — to all get on the same creative page. However, Elton John is clearing up any such potential dust-ups by producing his own biopic “Rocketman.” That said, locking down a leading man isn’t always easy, and the film has made a switcheroo.

A few years back, Tom Hardy was the eye-brow raising choice to play Elton John, but he’s now been replaced by “Kingsman: The Secret Service” star Taron Egerton.

While Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is expected to win this weekend's box-office battle, the big question is whether the critically acclaimed World War II epic can clear $40 million in its U.S. landing.

War dramas have never been known for big openings, although Nolan — the mastermind behind the blockbuster Dark Knight trilogy — is a powerful brand unto himself.

Warner Bros., Nolan's home studio, is projecting a domestic debut in the $35 million-$40 million range. Most box-office observers believe Dunkirk will come in on the higher end, while some think it has a shot of doing »

‘Game of Thrones’ Creators Defend New Slavery Drama ‘Confederate’: ‘This is Scary For All of Us’

24 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are no strangers to controversy — the showrunners’ hit series “Game of Thrones” has generated its fair share of headlines throughout its run. But the announcement of their next project, titled “Confederate” — which imagines an alternate timeline, where the southern states have seceded from the Union and slavery is legal — sparked a firestorm of backlash on social media.

Critics questioned the decision to have the drama be told by two white men, although Benioff and Weiss will be working on the project along with Nichelle Tramble Spellman (“Justified,” “The Good Wife”) and Malcolm Spellman (“Empire”).

The producing team defended the project in an interview with Vulture, urging patience given that no scripts have even been written yet.

“Everything is brand new and nothing’s been written,” said Weiss. “I guess that’s what was a little bit surprising about some of the outrage. It’s just a little premature. You »
