    Golden Globes Nominations Led by King's Speech, with Seven

    While The Golden Globes nominations have an impact on momentum going into the Oscar race, they are not predictive.

    Weekend Box Office: Families Flock to Holdovers Tangled and Harry Potter, Black Swan Soars

    Holdovers held sway at the tepid post-Thanksgiving box office, as families continued to flock to Tangled and Harry Potter and the Deathy Hallows--Part I. Martial arts flick The Warriors Way stumbled out of the gate, while fest-fave Black Swan soared in limited release, reports Anthony D'Alessandro:After feasting away at a smorgasbord of offerings over the Thanksgiving five-day stretch, moviegoers decided to take a nap this weekend.  Even though the post-holiday frame is notorious for being of one of the lowest weekends of the year as audiences return to their routines, family box office champs generally dominate. Sure enough, Disney’s Tangled...

    Weekend Box Office: Megamind Slows Unstoppable; Morning Glory Stalls in Fourth Place

    Mighty Megamind held off all takers with an estimated $30-million on its second weekend, while well-reviewed Denzel Washington actioner Unstoppable followed behind with $23.5 million, and newsroom comedy Morning Glory took a miserable fourth place--after raunch-fest holdover Due Date and VFX-crammed newcomer Skyline. Anthony D'Alessandro reports:Superhero toon Megamind put the brakes on runaway train movie Unstoppable at the weekend box office.  The Paramount/DreamWorks animated title remained more powerful than a locomotive in its second session, maintaining first place with $30.1 million at 3,949 theaters while Tony Scott’s choo-choo action...

    In Production: New Bond Secrets, Damon's Zoo Co-Star, Singh Directs One of Three Snow Whites

    - Writer Jeffery Deaver's The Bone Collector was made into a film back in 1999 starring Angelina Jolie and Denzel Washington. Now Ian Fleming Publications Ltd. has enlisted him to reinvent James Bond. Project X will be published in May and plot details are hush-hush, but Deaver did reveal to USA Today that the story "is set in the present day, in 2011. Bond is a young agent for the British secret service. He's 29 or 30 years old, and he's an Afghan war vet." Deaver is picking up the story from where Fleming's fourteen novels left off, not from the cinematic adaptations, he says: "I want to stay true to the original James Bond, who many people...

    Weekend Box Office: The Social Network Clicks to Top

    The most buzzed-about launch of the fall season, The Social Network met (but did not exceed) expectations with a $23-million start, while hard-R vampire thriller Let Me In proved to be a classic tweener: too bloody violent for upscale smart-house crowds and too European for mainstream gore-hounds. Anthony D'Alessandro explains:Sony’s PG-13 Facebook origin myth The Social Network effortlessly clicked its way to the top box office spot with $23 million – a number which was in line with studio estimates, but fell short of crashing any ticket booth’s computer with a fall record.  Two R-rated thrillers, Overture’s vampire remake Let Me In and Para...
