Wonder Woman Passes $800 Million at Worldwide Box Office

1 hour ago

While it's box office run is winding down, and it hasn't cracked the domestic top 10 in a few weeks, another Wonder Woman box office milestone was passed when the movie crossed $800 million worldwide. The movie earned an estimated $1.1 million at the domestic box office this weekend good for 12th place, pushing its domestic total to $404 million, and with the $396 million its earned overseas, it has earned just over $800 million worldwide. The movie is certainly a smash hit, working from a $149 million budget that breathed new life into Warner Bros. struggling Dceu, with this movie out-grossing the first two Dceu movies Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad at the domestic box office.

Box Office Mojo reports that Wonder Woman currently stands as the second highest-grossing movie of the year at the domestic box office, although it has virtually no shot at catching the number one movie, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, »

R-Rated Deadpool / Avengers Crossover Is What Ryan Reynolds Wants

1 hour ago

Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds has expressed interest in a crossover between Deadpool and the Avengers. Though both are a part of the Marvel family, Deadpool is not included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is owned by Fox, thus being separated on the big screen, save for references and jokes courtesy of Deadpool. The mutants and Deadpool all belong to Fox, but could we possibly see a deal like Sony made with the McU for Spider-Man: Homecoming? It would happen if Ryan Reynolds has anything to say about it, no matter how expensive it would be to make.

Reynolds really sat down with Total Film to talk about The Hitman's Bodyguard while also talking about the chance of Wade Wilson teaming up with the Avengers. Reynolds had this to say.

"That sounds like a great idea but a very expensive idea. Can you imagine the shit-talking contest with Iron Man? »

Christopher Nolan Sank a $500,000 IMAX Camera Making Dunkirk

1 hour ago

It has recently revealed that Dunkirk director Christopher Nolan accidentally sank a $500,000 dollar IMAX camera while filming the World War II story. Dunkirk has been a worldwide success with back-to-back number one weekends in the United States and has earned nearly $400 million worldwide. The movie is a visual stunner, especially when seen in the full immersive experience while watching in 70mm, which was the way that Nolan intended for Dunkirk to be seen as he shot the majority of the movie on crazy expensive and rare IMAX cameras.

The camera sinking news comes to us via American Cinematographer via Reddit. Christopher Nolan does not like to add effects in post-production and instead favors practical effects and one of his methods on Dunkirk was to strap incredibly expensive IMAX cameras to planes and intentionally crash them into the sea, which presented a pretty hefty task for cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (Interstellar) and his crew. »

2 hours ago

Heading into the weekend, some believed that PG-13 heist comedy Logan Lucky would have no trouble taking down the R-rated action-comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard, in one of the last summer movie box office weekends. It was quite the opposite, in fact, with The Hitman's Bodyguard continuing the trend of over-performing R-rated fare, easily coming away with the box office win in its opening weekend with $21.6 million. Last weekend's winner, Annabelle: Creation, dropped to second place with $15.5 million while the underperforming Logan Lucky debuted in third place this weekend with $8 million.

While The Hitman's Bodyguard, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson had no trouble winning at box office, it had a much more difficult time trying to win over the critics. The movie currently sits at a 38% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, down from the 46% rating it had earlier this week, while Logan Lucky proved to be a bona fide »

21 hours ago

Celebrity sex tapes are so 2000s. Sure, Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee might have the most famous of the bunch, but Paris Hilton's is arguably the most infamous. And though released way back in 2003, the video is still causing problems for the heiress. Some called her famous for doing nothing. But in Paris' mind, she believes she was well on her way to being the next Princess Diana. Only if it weren't for that amateur video that still lurks in greasy truck stops across the nation, still making truckers smile just a little bit, till this very day.

In a recent interview with Marie Claire, the somewhat reclusive Paris Hilton brought up the old sex tape. She's truly convinced that this night vision romp with an ex-boyfriend ruined any and all chances of her getting to emulate her one true idol, Lady Di. Hilton calls the whole thing 'humiliating'. »

Godzilla Vs. Kong Will Have One True Winner

23 hours ago

Godzilla vs. King Kong director Adam Wingard has stated that there will be a "clear winner" in his monster battle set to hit theaters in 2020. Little is known about the movie currently, but Wingard has also said that he intends for the movie to be a dark affair, that will take the monster movie in a serious direction. The first Godzilla movie is plenty serious, but Godzilla has been portrayed in a bunch of different ways over the years, so we'll consider this a return to his roots like the first installment in the MonsterVerse.

Adam Wingard recently talked to Entertainment Weekly about his upcoming Death Note adaptation that is premiering on Netflix later this month, but the conversation eventually steered over to his Godzilla Vs Kong project. The 4th installment in the MonsterVerse is going to be a giant monster brawl with one monster taking home all of the glory. »

Ron Howard is clearly having fun after taking over directing duties on the still untitled Han Solo movie. The director seems to get a kick out of sharing little snippets of footage and behind the scenes pictures on his various social media accounts. In the latest set updates, we get to see a video of a burned out R2 unit, a picture of Howard directing Chewie, and another video of a "rough corner of the galaxy."

Ben Affleck's Trashy Comic-Con Disguise Revealed

19 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT

San Diego Comic-Con is a part of summer that a lot of people look forward to every year and for obvious reasons. But it's not always fun for celebrities who have to move around thousands of fans to get to a panel or signing, so most stars choose some pretty interesting costumes to walk around anonymously without having to worry about getting bombarded by fan requests for pictures, autographs, or in Ben Affleck's case, to ask him what the heck is going on with The Batman movie. So, for this year's Comic-Con, Affleck decided to go with a pretty minimal disguise that may have come off as grouchy to all he encountered.

It had been previously reported prior to Comic-Con that Ben Affleck was looking for any excuse to back out of the The Batman project, but the star showed up to a huge round of applause in Hall »

19 August 2017 12:08 PM, PDT

Video game pioneers Atari are accusing Swiss candy company Nestl&#233 over copyright infringement for using its old video game Breakout in a Kit Kat commercial. The commercial came out last year, but Atari is just now getting around to filing a lawsuit in California against the candy company. Atari is suing Nestl&#233 for trademark and copyright infringement as well as unfair competition and other claims. Nestl&#233 is holding strong and claims that they will continue to fight the lawsuit because the ad no longer airs and they apparently have no plans to re-release the commercial, which is probably smart since they're being sued.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the video game company says that its Breakout game was used without permission for an ad campaign. It appears that the commercials were only shown in the U.K. and Europe, but that's not stopping the video game company. Atari provided a »
