Starry Deals Driving an Unsettled American Film Market

Starry Deals Driving an Unsettled American Film Market
Stars like Jason Statham, Gerard Butler, Liam Neeson and Ben Affleck have brought a semblance of stability to an unsettled American Film Market this week.

The boom in streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon along with the emergence of new services from Disney, Apple and Warner Bros. has disrupted the traditional business model for the independent sector.

“Netflix wants your movie early now,” noted Bron Studios exec Anjay Nagpal at Friday’s Afm finance conference. “They don’t want it any more after you couldn’t sell it at festivals.”

Jeffrey Greenstein, president of Millennium Media, said at the event that money offered by streamers has made it tougher to sign name actors such as Butler — who has done a trio of “Fallen” movies for Millennium.

“The numbers that Netflix, Amazon, Disney are able to offer are substantially higher than anyone can on the independent market,” Greenstein said. “Talent

Afm: Bron’s Aaron Gilbert Emphasizes Diversity and ‘Joker’

  • Variety
On the heels seeing “Joker” becoming a mega-hit, Bron Studios founder and chairman Aaron Gilbert has stressed the importance of focusing on diversity and inclusion. “Diversity is in the DNA of our company,” he said during the opening of the American Film Market’s Finance Conference on Friday morning, dubbed The Future of Film, at the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica, Ca. Gilbert noted that nine-year-old Bron saw its profile rise in 2016 with the release of “Birth of a Nation,” which fetched a record price at the Sundance Film Festival, and “Fences,” which received six Oscar nominations. “It’s in my DNA to make small films based on something culturally important,” he added. “Birth of a Nation’ and ‘Fences’ put us on the map. We have to tell important stories. We won’t stop doing that. We know that there are important stories and we know there’s an audience for them.

Titans Season 2 Episode 10 Review: Fallen

Dick's in prison and things are looking bleak on the latest episode of Titans.

Titans Season 2 Episode 10

The Dick Grayson self-flagellation tour continues in “Fallen,” a solid bit of storytelling for the Titans season 2’s tenth episode, even if it is also somewhat overwrought.

First up, mopey, self-loathing Dick Grayson is a drag, and wears thin. But Brenton Thwaites does a great job at it, and I entirely believe Dick’s destructive “Hero No More” arc. He doesn’t just want to pay for his sins against Jericho, and the Titans, he wants to die—but it has to be by someone else’s hands. Dick outright goads his new roomies to bump him off.

The whole affair inside Kane County Detention Center borders on being a bore, but the superhero behind bars is a well-tread, yet enjoyable, trope. What I found amusing,

Gerard Butler to Star in Action-Thriller ‘The Plane’ from ‘Transformers’ Producer

Gerard Butler may not be America's favorite action hero, but he has carved out a niche for himself on the silver screen between 300 and his hit Fallen franchise. And now the Scottish actor is set to star in the action-thriller The Plane, which hails from Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Based on the book by Charles Cumming, who co-wrote the script with Jp Davis (Violence of Action), the film follows Ray Torrance (Butler), a commercial pilot who heroically lands his storm-damaged aircraft in the middle of a war zone, only to find himself caught between …

Abominable Dominates the Weekend Box Office with $20.8M Debut
Abominable was easily able to take the number one spot at the box office this weekend. The animated family movie took in $20.8 million domestically, which gave it a leg up on the holdover competition from last weekend. Director Jill Culton is the first woman to be credited as the main director and writer of an animated Hollywood studio project and she is definitely celebrating after the box office success over this past weekend. The movie was able to pick up an additional $10 million overseas, bringing the grand global total to $30.8 million.

Downton Abbey fell from number one to take the second position this weekend. The movie, which is a continuation of the popular TV series, earned $14.5 million. To date, the project has made $107.1 million globally. Hustlers was able to secure the third position this weekend after earning $11.4 million.

Downton Abbey Tramples Rambo & Ad Astra at the Box Office with $31M Win
Downton Abbey was easily able to swoop in and take the number one spot this weekend. The popular TV series continued its story on the big screen with much of the original cast involved and earned $31 million, which was more than enough to dominate this weekend and exceeded original expectations. Downton Abbey finds itself in theaters three years after the massively popular series ended on the small screen. The movie also gained the biggest opening of all time for specialty distributor Focus Features.

Brad Pitt's Ad Astra took the second spot this weekend after earning $19.2 million. The movie was able to perform just above expectations for its debut, while Rambo: Last Blood, which was the predicted frontrunner, fell below expectations majorly. Sylvester Stallone was only able to scrounge up $19 million for the highly anticipated sequel, while initial estimates had it over $21 million. However, early negative reviews seem to have hurt its opening weekend,

‘Fallen’ Ascends To the Top of the Box Office

It was a weekend of modest business at multiplexes across North America as Lionsgate’s sequel Angel Has Fallen fought its way into the number one spot. Fellow new arrivals Overcomer and Ready or Not weren't quite as strong as Angel, but they also weren't outright flops. Overall, without a sleeper hit like Crazy Rich Asians or The Meg in its midst, the late summer box office continued to limp to the finish line.

The third in the Fallen series that began six years ago with Antoine Fuqua's Olympus Has Fallen, Angel Has Fallen hit 3,286 screens Friday where it earned an estimated $21.25 million. The opening numbers for the Gerard Butler feature were just slightly below the $21.6 million pulled in by the previous installment, 2016’s London Has Fallen. That film went on to gross just over $62 million at the box office.

Friday Box Office: ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Tops the Debut-Heavy Weekend

Angel Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, arrived in theaters this week and has immediately taken the top spot. This is the third film in the Fallen franchise, which has been led by Butler since 2013's Olympus Has Fallen. Considering it was a big weekend for debuts (especially those in the mid- to low budget range), with faith-based film Overcomer and horror-thriller Ready or Not also arriving on the scene, Angel's standout performance is especially noteworthy. It's likely a combination of audience curiosity in seeing where the Fallen franchise would go in this …

Box Office: ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Heads for $20 Million Opening Weekend

  • Variety
Lionsgate and Millennium’s “Angel Has Fallen” is performing above expectations, taking in $7.9 million in Friday’s domestic ticket sales as it heads to a projected $20 million opening weekend.

Early estimates originally placed the third installment of the “Fallen” series within the $12 million to $16 million range, but a solid 95% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and some strong star power from leads Morgan Freeman and Gerard Butler appear to be bolstering its box office appearance.

Previous iterations within the franchise performed similarly, with 2016’s “London Has Fallen” opening to $21.6 million and 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen” nabbing a higher $30 million.

Directed by Ric Roman Waugh, “Angel Has Fallen” follows secret service agent Mike Banning (Butler) who is falsely accused of an assassination attempt on U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Freeman). Also starring are Jada Pinkett Smith, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo and Nick Nolte.

Gerard Butler’s ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Rises to $1.5 Million at Thursday Box Office

Gerard Butler’s ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Rises to $1.5 Million at Thursday Box Office
Angel Has Fallen,” the action sequel starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, earned $1.5 million at the box office Thursday from preview screenings at 2,600 locations. It opens on 3,286 screens this weekend.

Lionsgate is releasing “Angel Has Fallen” following up from the success of both “Olympus Has Fallen” in 2013 and “London Has Fallen” in 2016. It’s the widest release this weekend as the summer comes to a close, with Fox Searchlight’s horror and thriller “Ready or Not” having already opened on Wednesday.

The studio is projecting “Angel” to open in the low to mid teen range this weekend, with independent trackers estimating approximately $13 million. For a comparison, “London Has Fallen” earned only $850,000 in its debut opposite a then record-setting weekend for Disney’s “Zootopia,” but it ultimately raked in a $21.6 million opening. The original “Olympus Has Fallen” opened to $30.3 million and grossed $170.2 million worldwide.

‘Ready or Not,’ ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Enter Box Office Race

  • Variety
Three more contenders are joining what has lately been a hostile box office arena. Can anyone emerge from August victorious?

Fox Searchlight’s “Ready or Not,” a black comedy about a diabolical game of hide-and-seek, will debut in 2,244 North American theaters on Wednesday. The low-budget film is expected to earn upwards of $6.5 million over the weekend and $8 million to $12 million during its first five days of release. Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, “Ready or Not” stars Samara Weaving as a newlywed who finds out her in-laws intend to stalk and kill her. Unlike the overtly political themes in Universal’s controversial “The Hunt,” “Ready or Not” takes a more fantasy-oriented approach to hunting humans for sport.

In a positive review, Variety’s chief film critic Peter Debruge called the film a “deranged and darkly comedic thriller [that] packs subversive pleasures aplenty.” Debruge is not alone in his praise. The

Desperate to uncover the truth, he turns to some unlike allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.

All were excited to see Butler bring a darker, harder edge to the beloved character while showing a new vulnerability?and keeping all the fun intact.

Angel Has Fallen review – Gerard Butler's pyrotechnics fizzle out

In the latest overblown instalment of the Fallen franchise, Butler’s beleaguered secret service agent goes on the run, seeking out unintelligible dad Nick Nolte

Is Gerard Butler hellbent on remaking every last action movie of the 90s? The thought arose during last year’s Den of Thieves, in which Butler bellowed his way through the Al Pacino role in a cut-price Heat; it was followed by Hunter Killer, a Crimson Tide-ish sub thriller in which Butler tried something close to character work. With that project having sunk commercially, he’s returned to his signature role of Mike Banning, patriot, dad and secret service agent par excellence, as seen in Olympus Has Fallen (2013) and London Has Fallen (2016).
