The Most Disappointing – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

29 minutes ago

Anghus Houvouras on Star Wars: The Last Jedi (major spoilers follow)…

It’s all been done. That song by Canada’s eighth best band Barenaked Ladies was bouncing around my head as I watched the latest installment of the Star Wars saga. A galaxy, far, far away isn’t nearly as exciting as it used to be. Not since Disney bought the franchise and turned it into an annual blockbuster money printing machine. The series has been floundering ever since the lackluster Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened in 2015, followed by the even more formulaic and haphazard Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The Last Jedi is the third and most salient example that it’s all been done and Disney has little interest in doing anything differently.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuts to second-biggest ever opening day at the box office

2 hours ago

After starting its North American theatrical run with the second biggest ever Thursday preview takings, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has carried that into its first full day at the box office, with the movie grossing $100.4 million on Friday, second only to Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ $119 million.

Having been tracking a $200 million domestic opening weekend, analysts are now suggesting a $208 million to $214 million debut for The Last Jedi, which would put it ahead of The Avengers ($207.4 million) and potentially Jurassic World ($208.8 million) for the second best opening weekend after The Force Awakens ($247.9 million).

International numbers are still to come in for Friday, but The Last Jedi had grossed $60.8 million from 48 markets by close of play on Thursday. Worldwide opening estimates for the film put its weekend at around $425 million.

10 hours ago

Following on from the first trailer [watch it here], Warner Bros. has released a featurette for the upcoming biographical drama The 15:17 to Paris which sees director Clint Eastwood discussing the true story behind the film and casting the actual real-life heroes Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone as themselves; watch the featurette here…

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris—an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans travelling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends’ lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board.
