Spotlight on the Stars: Keira Knightley

For this week’s new spotlight piece, I wanted to cite an A-lister who doesn’t quite get the credit that she deserves. That lovely lady is none other than Keira Knightley, an Academy Award nominated actress mostly known for her period piece work but capable of far more than that. In[...]

The Dark Knight Rises topped the weekend box office again with $36 million.

HollywoodNews.com:In the face of two relatively non-mighty openers, The Dark Knight Rises (review/spoiler-review) topped the weekend box office again with $36 million. As has been the case throughout the film’s much-debated run (which is really only 17 days old), it’s doing pretty spectacular by any logical standard but must be[...]

‘Midnight in Paris’ by Woody Allen astonishes, ‘Pirates’ 4 grosses $90 million

HollywoodNews.com: Just ten years ago next weekend, we saw pundits studio executives hand-wringing over the ‘mere’ $75 million four-day gross of Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor.

“Toy Story 3” crushes newbies, “Grown Ups” opens per normal Sandler standards, and “Knight and Day” regains momentum.

Scott Mendelson hollywoodnews.com: At $18 million, ‘Toy Story 3’ has the 29th-biggest non-opening Friday of all-time. However, if you discount day eight or day ten grosses (IE – for a film that opened on Wednesday) that were not part of a holiday weekend, ‘Toy Story 3’ once again shoots up[...]

‘Toy Story 3’ continues to hold steady at the box office

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: I was seemingly alone in my slight disappointment with the low 2.68x weekend multiplier for “Toy Story 3,” which opened to $110 million off of a $41 million opening day. Apparently I was an idiot to worry, as the film has recovered whatever steam it allegedly[...]
