    The Weinstein Company Bolster This Year's Oscar Slate With Star-Studded Doc 'Salinger'

    It can safely be said that Harvey Weinstein no longer needs to try too hard. After nudging “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Django Unchained” toward their Oscar wins Sunday night, and even snagging FLOTUS to deliver the Best Picture award? No need. But the famed producer's key to s...

    Bigger Than 'Pulp Fiction'? Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' Earns $34 Million in its First 3 Days

    Despite -- or, more likely, because of -- the debate raging around Quentin Tarantino's latest genre pastiche "Django Unchained," the film has opened to especially large numbers at the box office, even in its position as perverse holiday counterprogramming. The Weinstein Co., Tarantino&...

    "Hakuna Matata!" proclaims Disney, discovering what amounts to an entirely new revenue stream. “The Lion King 3D” has taken the crown decisively for the second straight weekend with $22 million, amidst some otherwise heavy fall competition that was a lot buzzier and, without a doubt, more expensive....

    The Weinstein Company Picks Up Sean Penn's Goth Holocaust Dramedy 'This Must Be The Place'

    Lionsgate Nabs Midnight Madness Horror Flick 'You're Next'The biggest WTF movie so far this year has been Paolo Sorrentino's followup to his acclaimed "Il Divo," the Sean Penn starring "This Must Be Place." Premiering to a very mixed reception at Cannes this spring (that's sort of putting it kindly), the story follows a (seemingly) barely functioning goth rocker (Penn doing his best Robert Smith impression) who finds out his father he hasn’t seen in 30 years is dead and then goes on a road trip to find the SS Officer who made his life hell when he was imprisoned at Auschwitz. No, really, that's the plot. But it seems the Weinsteins know a cha...

    Weekend Box Office: Families Complete The Circle Of Life, Pack Theaters For Movie They Own On DVD

    Right now, some jerk at Disney is finding a way to use the term “circle of life” to define how they can release “The Lion King” anytime, and it will always make money. A 3D re-issue of the film became the number one weekend attraction by a very wide margin with $29 million, a huge middle finger to t...

    Review: 'I Don't Know How She Does It' Is A Pained, Unfunny, Politically Questionable Bore

    One of the "charmingly neurotic" tics of the main character of "I Don't Know How She Does It," played brittlely and with affected strain by Sarah Jessica Parker, is making to-do lists. Since the year is 2011 and editing software has come a long way, we see her visualize the list as the prepares for sleep – everything from arranging her daughter's play date to doing some Kegel exercises (yes, seriously) – with words and small images appearing tattooed on the ceiling of her bohemian chic Boston apartment (accompanied by a never-ending stream of voice-over narration). While watching "I Don't Know How She Does It," which at a swift 89 minutes sti...

    The Weinstein Company Starting A VOD Operation

    The numbers are fuzzy when it comes to VOD receipts, but if it wasn't profitable for someone, people would stop trying to push it, right? VOD is a wonderful gift for film lovers, giving more obscure fare that might not otherwise escape the big cities a chance to reach people and convert new movie fa...

    Weekend Box Office: Three Straight Weeks At #1 For 'The Help'

    There are all sorts of qualifiers to this summer becoming the most financially robust in box office history. Chief amongst them are both the inferior product, but also the illusion of 3D prices, which do an excellent job of covering up the consistently-dropping attendance numbers. In other words, mo...
