    Weekend Box-Office: Is 'Green Lantern' The End Of The Superhero Gravy Train?

    Perspective is necessary. $53 million is a whole lotta money. $53 million could buy several houses, it could feed many people, it could save lives. $53 million is also a pretty good opening for a somewhat higher-budgeted film, provided advertising isn’t through the roof and there aren’t a massive am...

    Watch: Cruddy Bootleg Of 'A Dangerous Method' Trailer Makes Us Yearn For The Real Thing

    Has Sony Pictures Classics Picked Up The Film?No, this isn't like the "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" red band trailer which was (fake?) leaked to the interwebs and got a gajillion hits.

    Weekend Box Office: 'Super 8' Is A Super Performer For Paramount, 'Judy Moody' Has A Bummer Summer

    Call this one a victory for Paramount, and a big one at that. “Super 8,” which opened to $37 million, was advertised with only the slightest of peekaboos, an ad campaign that played less coy and more stubbornly mysterious. While the film was pitched on the name of Steven Spielberg, the filmmaker has...

    'The Skin I Live In' Gets Official Synopsis & November Release; 'Take Shelter' Set for October 7th

    Aside from a series of increasingly creepy stills not much is known about Pedro Almodóvar‘s “The Skin I Live In” except that it's based on a pretty intense book by crime novelist Thierry Jonque‘s 2005 book, “Tarantula.” The film has a competition slot at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival and with bu...

    Weekend Box Office: Zack Snyder & Warners Get 'Sucker Punch' From 'Wimpy Kid'

    Demographics matter. You want to say, well, screw the numbers, let’s just make a movie for everyone! But considering the multiple sources of entertainment in our multimedia worlds, whatever doesn’t automatically turn us on will turn us off. Because of this, Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch” turned people off. It was an action fantasia, a genre normally attractive to teenage boys, but it featured only girls, an immediate turnoff for that demographic. And it didn’t appeal to women, who noticed the marketing campaign centered around cacophonous violence and mayhem, not usually a drawing point for females. It wasn’t made for kids, but the heavily-CGI’...
