    I'm watching this for Margot Robbie as I watch anything she's in. I didn't watch the second trailer so don't have any comments on that. As for the discussion about female action films: studios are incompetent at marketing them imo. They don't know whether to go the "sexy" route or go the "female empowerment" route when in reality they should just be marketing the film for what it is: a female action movie. And yes I know some aren't well received critically but that hasn't stopped male action films from being marketed properly and doing well at the box office. I expect this to surprise folks and do well. Harley Quinn was the standout from Suicide Squad and even if I wasn't a Margot fan, I'd be watching this movie for her character alone.

    @cayommagazine After several years of careful deliberation by Alpha Pictures, the studio has decided to greenlight Tony Yacenda’s follow-up to Y4’s critically-acclaimed By the Balls, entitled The Zealots of Idlewild, Kansas, for a Y7 release. While the word “Kansas” brings with it a lot of controversy around CAYOM Tinseltown (for reasons that can only be explained by acknowledging a rampant conspiracy theory about a major time-related cosmic event), a company spokesperson who would like to remain anonymous has told us that Alpha Pictures is doing its best to avoid “this iteration of an idea that’s been bouncing around inside the writer’s room for quite some time” from becoming the black sheep of the studio’s slate, but one that will hopefully entice moviegoers and perhaps garner Oscar attention. The Zealots of Idlewild, Kansas is a satirical comedy-drama about a controversial Pentecostal Christian summer camp located in the eponymous town, located in the dead-center of the contiguous United States. The film focuses on several characters whose stories become intertwined at this yearly gathering of young evangelicals from around the country: Kyle (Noah Jupe), a young amateur preacher from a bitterly-divided Christian household who hopes to become a pastor and spread the Gospel when he grows up. Maureen (Holly Hunter), a charismatic and devoted youth pastor who leads the summer camp but begins to experience doubts about her teachings. Jonathan (Sam Rockwell), a Republican politician running for U.S. Senate who becomes entangled in a political scandal. Timothy (Patrick Wilson), the owner of a large nondenominational megachurch based in Wichita. Abigail (Brooklynn Prince), a shy, introverted campgoer who struggles to make friends at summer camp. In addition, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Nat Faxon have been cast respectively as Kyle’s highly devout mother and his more-moderate father, who both play crucial supporting roles, while Annabelle Attanasio and Jimmy Tatro have been cast in undisclosed roles. While the film’s focus on a particular subset of evangelical Christianity is poised to stir up some controversy, The Zealots of Idlewild, Kansas blends outrageous black comedy with a biting portrayal of contemporary American society, highlighting timely themes about Christianity’s place within the American civic religion, and its connection to wealth, commodification and political causes. The Zealots of Idlewild, Kansas is slated for a limited release in New York and Los Angeles on March 10th, Y7, before expanding to wide release two weeks later on March 24th.

    See my previous post, but we'll agree to disagree...right now, 3 new movies are coming next weekend, b/c everything in my area is booking Weathering With You (surprise to see for me, b/c even my Regal is getting it, and they don't do subtitle movies...except this one)...tight market, tight screens, one movie dropping like a rock with a bad contract for theaters... Should be a fun Friday look at theater counts...

    Have a feeling 2020s will be dominated DC. They have a very strong lineup that is less controversial and much anticipated. Will 2020s be end of Marvel Studios? I hope not but it can happen.

    A $40m week is pretty good. Next weekend it opens in Brazil and that will soften the drop, so maybe another $28m next week. Getting closer and closer to $500m OS (would need very good late legs to get there so not likely). DOM is't the place where it's drop was a bit ugly this weekend.

    Yeah, it's tough to say but I get more of a Wrinkle In Time/Dumbo vibe than Cinderella/Maleficent so far. Our early tracking for it will be out in a few weeks but that will of course not yet factor in reviews and final marketing. Also, I haven't actually tabulated the specific top 15 as of now based on our forecasts, so I was initially guessing that's what the article was based around since I keep that data internal and for clients until the Long Range window hits. Looks like it was a New Year's kind of filler piece to get fresh content on the site while everyone was on break, excluding any numbers for obvious reasons, but it is fairly close to what I have as the top 15 for the year as of around Christmas. But the actual numbers are constantly in flux when you're talking about a full year's window and lots of schedule changes yet to come. There's at least one on that list I probably wouldn't include were it written today, e.g.

    Never heard anyone half serious claiming the Globes have no box office effects, always did read that they tend to be by far the most important award in that regard (because of their timing, has the Oscar tend to only affect the best picture winner)

    btw, Austria's 2019 numbers are now final and even though quartals 3 and 4 were good, that wasn't able to save the year ... it's been the 2nd worst in recent times, only "beaten" by the dismal 2018 numbers.

    Rewatched it this weekend for the first time in years. Hell of a movie!!! I have to say Connie Nielsen was damn good in this. The primary male actors both received a lot of credit for their excellent work, but I am surprised Connie did not receive an Oscar nomination.

    My guess: Disney changed up the story to tie more to Loki/WandaVision, and Derrickson wasn't interested. If that's the case, a big potential director could be Matt Shakman, WandaVision's director.

    So the final numbers are in (as per Canacine) and indeed we crossed the 19 Billion mark. 19.05B in total. This is nothing short of outstanding. Even the record of tickets sold fell this year at 350M (2 Million more than previous high of 2017) So 2020 will not even come close to these numbers (I think) At least for the time being Charlie's Angels has indeed being a good player (already at 55.3M, can it get to 85M?). This week there is nothing really outstanding, probably Underwater can make some splash but I'm not really condifent. Next week we have the major Oscar player (which will surely have many nominations on Monday) in 1917... can it get to 100M when all is said and done?

    Lincoln (2012) Directed by Steven Spielberg "Buzzard's guts, man! I am the President of the United States of America! Clothed in immense power! You will procure me these votes." Most Valuable Player: Daniel Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln Awards Count: Won 2 Oscars Box Office: 182.2m DOM Metascore: 86 Synopsis: In 1865, as the American Civil War winds inexorably toward conclusion, U.S. president Abraham Lincoln endeavors to achieve passage of the landmark constitutional amendment which will forever ban slavery from the United States. However, his task is a race against time, for peace may come at any time, and if it comes before the amendment is passed, the returning southern states will stop it before it can become law. Lincoln must, by almost any means possible, obtain enough votes from a recalcitrant Congress before peace arrives and it is too late. Yet the president is torn, as an early peace would save thousands of lives. As the nation confronts its conscience over the freedom of its entire population, Lincoln faces his own crisis of conscience -- end slavery or end the war. Critic Opinion: "While we have seen many actors portray Abraham Lincoln, including some acclaimed portrayals by Hal Holbrook who here appears as Preston Blair, none has been as captivating as that by Daniel Day-Lewis. Referring to actual evidentiary history as opposed to mythology, Day-Lewis takes the voice up a few octaves from what we have mythologically long believed to be Lincoln’s deeper baritone or bass (since the deeper voice fit the taller man), added some gravelly tonal effects and achieved a quality as distinctive and memorable as is documented was Lincoln’s accurate voice. Assuming a hunched posture and slowed, stilted cadence of movement, Day-Lewis physically articulates the emotional burdens of the war and the times which weighed heavy on the man. Imbuing Lincoln’s known strength of character and approachability, Day-Lewis gives a tour de force performance with a slow burn that bubbles with folksy humor, handily showing why Lincoln was truly a man of the people. Toss in hair, make-up and wardrobe and you feel as it Abe Lincoln himself is walking right off the pages of history into the movie theatre, ready to sit down for a chat." - Debbie Lynn Elias, Behind the Lens User Opinion: "Finally got to see it and the film is quite an achievement. I mean really what can you say about DDL that hasn't already been said. The guy is simply at another level. Actually I thought all the performances were great. And I agree it's definitely Spielberg's best film in years." - @DAR Commentary: There are a few movies where it seems tailor made fit for certain directors to do, and an Abraham Lincoln biopic is one that really suits Spielberg's stylings like a glove. The film feels like you're watching an old classic, only with a bit more of a modern stylistic flair. Lincoln is Spielberg at some of his most restrained when it comes to the sentimentality, and it does wonders for the film, as when the emotional lines hit from Day Lewis' many long, sprawling monologues they sink in. Speaking of Daniel Day Lewis, this is probably the best performance of the mythic figure that Lincoln is that's been put to screen, I don't think I could ever see another actor play him now without feeling slightly disappointed that they aren't this good. One of the most well deserved Best Actor wins of the decade for Lewis with this one. Year Count: 2018 (8), 2015 (7), 2017 (7), 2019 (6), 2012 (6), 2014 (5), 2011 (4), 2016 (4), 2010 (3), 2013 (3) Director Count: Wes Anderson (2), Alex Garland (2), Steven Spielberg (2), Taika Waititi (2)

    OD January 8 releases There's no big release this week, with only one above 300 cinemas and two around 200 - as the Christmas holidays have ended. Underwater is the strongest of them all, with a decent average of 87 moviegoers per theater and without any preview screening. Weathering With You, the japanese smash-hit from Makoto Shinkai, takes the second place with a score a bit stronger than Your Name three years ago but with more previews and with twice as more cinemas. Sol, a french comedy, takes third place with a disappointing average knowing it's the widest release this week. Then come two "cinema prize contenders", The Farewell and The Whistlers. The former gets a better average than the latter, with less previews. Below, we only have bombs that won't stay long in their small amount of cinemas. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker should keep the lead for the 4th consecutive week, it should be dethroned by 1917 which releases next week. Only Underwater should manage to get into the top 10 this week.

Quo Vado did 28M from day 7 to end, so Tolo Tolo could end under 50M, that would be lower than Sole a Catinelle (51,98) but still bigger than Che Bella Giornata (43,47).

    Interstellar (2014) Directed by Christopher Nolan "Rage, rage against the dying of the light." Most Valuable Player: Dat Black Hole and Hanz Zimmer's Organ Awards Count: Won 1 Oscar Box Office: 188m Metascore: 74 Synopsis: Earth's future has been riddled by disasters, famines, and droughts. There is only one way to ensure mankind's survival: Interstellar travel. A newly discovered wormhole in the far reaches of our solar system allows a team of astronauts to go where no man has gone before, a planet that may have the right environment to sustain human life. Critic Opinion: "In any case, Interstellar is quite adamant—and here I’m certain the movie is not channeling Einstein—that however many dimensions may exist, love trumps them all. Love, we are instructed variously, is “quantifiable,” “must have a purpose,” and “is the one thing that transcends time and space.” If this sounds like a hokey premise for a story about Earthly apocalypse and intergalactic exodus, that’s because it is one. But this is hokiness of uncommon scale and grandeur. Interstellar may be a preposterous epic, but it is an epic nonetheless. For years, the project was attached to Steven Spielberg, and these roots are very much in evidence. Envision a movie as Spielberg-y as any you’ve ever seen—all the craftsmanship, all the sentimentality—add in a concluding twist reminiscent of M. Night Shyamalan (not the current version, but the circa-Signs, not-yet-tragic version), and you’ll have a pretty good sense of what to expect." - Christopher Orr, The Atlantic User Opinion: "B+" - @MrPink Commentary: My opinion goes all over the map with this movie, some days I think it's some hokey, over exposized nonsense. On other days, I remember it as a beautiful and moving epic film that keeps you entranced all the way through. Today just happens to be one of those days where what I appreciate about the movie overshadows some of the flaws that it contains. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'd easily take a flawed creative tentpole film like Interstellar any day over the week over some the safe franchise works that feel like you're getting the same recycled product year after year. It's a nice, gorgeous looking, cheesy and hopeful epic for those days where you really need it!
