September 2014 Box Office is Lowest in Six Years

15 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

After a welcome reprieve in August, the 2014 box office woes returned in September.Overall domestic box office totaled just $513 million, which is down 11 percent from last year. More importantly, this was the lowest-grossing month at the box office in six years (dating back to September 2008).The abnormally low total can be chalked up to a dearth of content early in the month. As Above/So Below and The November Man were weak late August releases, and the major studios entirely avoided the first weekend of September; the only movie to open wide on that date was Freestyle Releasing's The Identical, which has taken in less than $3 million total. By the time the studios got back in to the game on September 12th, the damage was already done.The month's top performer was The Maze Runner, which tallied $60.2 million through its first 12 days. The young-adult adaptation started with a strong $32.5 million, »

On Tuesday, Twilight writer Stephenie Meyer and Lions Gate announced that five female directors will be selected to make short films based on Twilight characters, which will then be screened on Facebook.

Participants will be selected by a panel of various female luminaries, including Meyer, Kristen Stewart, Kate Winslet, Julie Bowen, and Octavia Spencer. “We think Facebook is a great way for us to introduce the world of Twilight to a whole new audience while re-energizing existing fans,” said Lions Gate’s vice-chairman Michael Burns."This is just the beginning — a template, if you will," Burns added. "You can probably guess what might be coming next." While he wouldn’t elaborate, he did go on to say, "We love Stephenie Meyer. »

Ben Affleck in Negotiations to Play Assassin in WB's ‘The Accountant’

17 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ben Affleck is in negotiations to star in “The Accountant” for Warner Bros., an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. Bill Dubuque wrote the script, which follows a mild-mannered accountant who moonlights as a deadly assassin. Gavin O'Connor (“Warrior”) is circling the director's chair, though there is no deal in place yet. Will Smith was previously attached to star, as Warner Bros. has long believed the project to be worthy of an A-list actor. After doing press for “Gone Girl,” Affleck will finish filming “Batman. »

'Tail! Spin!': Theater Review

just now | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Thanks to the scandals engendered by certain sleazy politicians, the previously innocuous phrases "wide stance" and "hiking the Appalachian Trail" have taken on a decidedly sordid connotation. Hilariously exploiting the faux pas of such real-life politicos as former Idaho Senator Larry Craig, former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, former Florida Representative Mark Foley and the unfortunately named Anthony Weiner, Tail! Spin! hoists its subjects on their own verbal petards. Previously seen a couple of years back at the New York International Fringe Festival, the show has now returned for a commercial Off-Broadway engagement with several of its original

Ciara's Goth Nightie Is Sexy and Terrifying at the Same Time—See Her Dark Look!

just now | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's rare for us to picture a style that works for both a Halloween haunted house and a romantic getaway with the lover in your life. Ciara may be pulling off the impossible with this long, black Givenchy look—one part sweet dreams, one part nightmare...and somehow there's a little sexy in the mix too. But strange as this may sound, we actually wish the "Read My Lips" singer's look was either scarier or sexier. As it stands, there's one toe dipped in the sleepwear category (thanks to the long length and lace inserts) and another in the Elvira arena. A little more cleavage and a little less sweetness would make this a more solid style decision. Obviously we vote for »

Theater Review: In Tail! Spin!, the Straight Lines Are the Funniest

just now | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tail! Spin! describes itself as a political comedy, and though it features politicians and is often very funny, I’m not sure the phrase really applies. “Political comedy” suggests something that’s fundamentally about government and ultimately happy, neither of which is the case in Mario Correa’s cleverly constructed sound-bite mash-up of recent sex scandals. You might wonder whether fact-based political comedy can even exist now, when governance is little more than psychopathology, and the whole thing is just plain sad.As it has ever been? Perhaps, but thanks to social media, elected officials’ extramarital affairs, solicitations, underage come-ons, and general lechery have become more public and peculiar than ever. Drama can’t really cover the territory, because these stories don't happen in a coherent framework of time and space. Satire is almost impossible, because the events meant to be satirized are already so extreme — which is part of »

How The Hollywood Film Festival Changed Its Stripes

25 minutes ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When the 18th Annual Hollywood Film Festival relaunches October 16-19 with 30 features at the ArcLight Hollywood, it won't be the one you're used to. The new festival under the direction of Executive Director and CineCause founder Jon Fitzgerald boasts a brand new focus and identity. It's legit.  Earlier this year, CineCause, which 47-year-old fest veteran Fitzgerald (Slamdance, AFI, Santa Barbara and Abu Dhabi) founded in 2010 to connect social impact movies and related causes, acquired the fest from founder Carlos de Abreu, who hired Fitzgerald as Executive Director of the 2013 Hollywood Film Festival. He increased attendance by an estimated 10%-15%. Meanwhile Dick Clark Productions also bought Abreu's glitzy fall awards season sidebar, the Hollywood Film Awards, which have nothing to do with this new festival. That's because the Hff now has a higher purpose that is dead opposite from red carpet Hollywood »

Busan Festival Gets off to Lively Start

39 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Busan — The third year of ceremonies at the Biff Centre, Thursday night, was arguably the smoothest yet — and the most fun.

“I didn’t realize that the atmosphere here was going to be so lively,” said Taiwanese director Doze Niu, who then introduced the cast of opening night film “Paradise in Service.”

Proceedings overseen by Moon So-ri and Japan’s Watanabe Ken, were helped by the generally clement weather, short speeches, and the smooth functioning of the purpose-built festival centre. A volley of fireworks from the building next door was a nice touch.

The red carpet parade this year clearly put the accent on elegance rather than sex appeal, a steady stream of full-length gowns in ivory, white, and gold with, mostly, high neck lines.

That was perhaps driven by a new festival policy, which dispensed with the presence of dozens of scantily-clad minor celebrities who in previous years had »

Marty Singer, representing over a dozen celebrities whose iCloud accounts were hacked and whose nude photos were stolen in late August, is excoriating Google in a letter that threatens a $100 million lawsuit. "Google’s 'Don’t be evil' motto is a sham," he writes. The letter calls out "Google’s despicable, reprehensible conduct in not only failing to act expeditiously and responsibly to remove the Images, but in knowingly accommodating, facilitating and perpetuating the unlawful conduct." According to Singer, Google hasn't been expeditiously removing owned work from its platforms pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright
