If Ouija holds like those three movies, it will wind up with around $20 million this weekend.John Wick opened in second place with a solid $5.45 million. That's roughly on par with last Fall's The Family ($5.37 million), and is above recent movies like A Walk Among the Tombstones ($4.76 million) and 3 Days to Kill ($4 million). For the weekend, John Wick is now targeting $14 to $15 million.Coming off opening weekend, Fury fell 54 percent to an estimated $4.1 million.

Lauren Graham and Matthew Perry Will Make an Odd Couple Indeed

5 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Lauren Graham is securing her post-Parenthood career, starting with a stint on CBS' The Odd Couple reboot starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon. Graham will play Gaby, the ex-wife of Perry's Oscar Madison, which is something of a meta moment, considering Graham and Perry were once an item. (As of right now, Graham is currently dating co-star Peter Krause, he of the "great biceps.") But the two have worked well together as this marks the third Perry venture she has guest-starred on: The first two were Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Go On. Hopefully though this show will see better days than the other two. »

23 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — When you see "Interstellar," you'll get the sense right away that a deep admiration for exploration lies at the root of it all. Amid all of that epic imagery (and equally epic familial drama), there is a seething indictment of our general abandonment of space programs. At a press conference Friday afternoon, filmmaker Christopher Nolan and three of the film's stars spoke about their early experiences with space travel and the value of keeping Nasa funded while continuing to push for the outer limits. "I remember when I was a kid, my first real confrontation with space travel was when the Challenger exploded," actress Jessica Chastain said. "I remember how traumatic that was for me, watching on the news and all the children in class were watching and I was very young. So I never imagined that it was something I wanted to do. But I think we »

ABC Cancels ‘Manhattan Love Story’

24 October 2014 6:19 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC has broken up with its new relationship comedy, “Manhattan Love Story,” canceling the sitcom created by Jeff Lowell after four episodes.

The ABC Studios comedy, which focused on the inner monologues of characters who were embarking on a new relationship, is the first of the new fall shows to be canceled.

Love Story,” which aired at 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays after fellow new romantic comedy “Selfie,” had a weak ratings start and lukewarm reviews, with Variety’s Brian Lowry writing that the narrative device was “straight out of the subtitled feeling-out exchange in ‘Annie Hall'” — even if leads Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman were appealing.

Despite being the first to drop the axe this season, ABC has had good luck in some of its other new properties and recently gave full-season orders to comedy “Black-ish” and drama “How to Get Away With Murder.” Both of those shows have growing fanbases, »
