      Disney's 'Dumbo' Flies to #1 While 'Captain Marvel' Nears $1 Billion Worldwide

      Disney's 'Dumbo' Flies to #1 While 'Captain Marvel' Nears $1 Billion Worldwide
      Disney's Dumbo was unable to reach studio or industry expectations, but still managed a #1 finish, making for the third different #1 film at the domestic weekend box office in as many weeks. Meanwhile holdovers such as Us and Captain Marvel continued their strong performances and Pure Flix's release of the anti-abortion drama Unplanned managed to out-perform expectations and find itself a spot in the top five. With an estimated $45 million, Disney's Dumbo topped the weekend box office though fell short of the studio's $50+ million expectations and well short of what some thought would be a $60+ million debut. While the performance is well ahead of select, recent Disney releases such as Christopher Robin ($24.6m opening), Alice Through the Looking Glass ($26.9m opening) and Pete's Dragon ($21.5m opening), it's well short of films such as Cinderella ($67.9 million opening), which online ticket retailer Fandango.com reported Dumbo was outpacing in advance ticket sales.

      Mark Hamill Is the New Voice of Chucky in ‘Child’s Play’ Remake

      Mark Hamill Is the New Voice of Chucky in ‘Child’s Play’ Remake
      The force is indeed strong with this one. Orion Pictures announced today that Mark Hamill has been cast as the voice of Chucky in the forthcoming “Child’s Play” reboot. The legendary actor stars alongside Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, and Brian Tyree Henry in a contemporary re-imagining of the 1988 horror classic that follows Karen (Plaza), a single mother who gifts her son Andy (Bateman) a Buddi doll, unaware of its more sinister nature.

      “We feel incredibly lucky to have an icon creating a new take on an iconic character,” said executive producer David Katzenberg. “Mark is a gifted actor and celebrated vocal performer, and he’s approached this challenge with incredible energy and commitment.”

      Norwegian filmmaker Lars Klevberg (“Polaroid”) will helm the adaptation, from a script by Tyler Burton Smith (“Quantum Break”).

      The original “Child’s Play” grossed over $44 million worldwide on a $9 million budget and created one of the

      ‘The Matrix’ 20 Years Later: The Artificial Intelligence Lives in Us (Column)
      The term “artificial intelligence” was coined in 1956, but one way or another it has been the subject of just about every great science-fiction movie, from “Metropolis” to “Frankenstein,” from the paranoid fables of the ’50s (about brainy robots and aliens with giant noggins who were like “advanced” versions of ourselves) to “2001: A Space Odyssey,” in which Hal, the computer who talks like a wounded therapy patient, displays the anger and ego of a jilted human being. And by the late ’70s and early ’80s, the Machines Who Could Think were really taking over. “Alien” featured a technologically evolved monster with the metallic jaws, the helmet head, and the relentlessness of a demonic thresher, the most sympathetic character in “Blade Runner” was a replicant, and “The Terminator” gave us a dystopia ruled by the machines, featuring a weaponized badass who was the ultimate programmed destroyer.

      Jai Courtney returning as Captain Boomerang in James Gunn’s 'The Suicide Squad'

      Jai Courtney returning as Captain Boomerang in James Gunn’s 'The Suicide Squad'
      Although producer Peter Safran has recently described the movie as “a total reboot”, it seems that isn’t quite the case as Jai Courtney has revealed to Business Insider that he’s set to reprise the role of Captain Boomerang for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.

      “We’re getting ready to shoot in a few months’ time,” states Courtney. “There’s not much else I can reveal about it but yet, you’ll be seeing Boomerang back for sure. I’m happy, it’s going to be fun. It will be different, for sure, but it’s going to be great.”

      Gunn’s follow-up to 2016’s Suicide Squad is said to feature “mostly” new actors and characters, and we already know that Idris Elba is set to take over the role of Deadshot from Will Smith. However, it’s been rumoured that Margot Robbie will be returning as Harley Quinn,

      Fox’s ‘Dark Phoenix’ Brightens Expectations With WonderCon Win
      Just before the WonderCon panel, featuring the filmmakers and cast members of Dark Phoenix, the latest X-Men film from Fox, a message over the public address system informed the crowd at the Anaheim Convention Center’s Arena that no time would be allotted for audience questions. There was an amused murmur from the crowd that seemed to say: That figures.

      Dark Phoenix won’t open in theaters until June 7 but the film’s reputation has taken a beating for months with some of the harshest advance word of any major superhero sequel since, well, the franchise’s previous installment, X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. It was not clear, however, how much of that negative word was informed by genuine firsthand knowledge and how much of it was an early-bird pile-on by negative nellies.

      With the Disney acquisition of Fox, Dark Phoenix can be viewed as a lame-duck entry in a short-timer superhero

      Box Office: ‘Dumbo’ to Outsoar ‘Us’ With $48 Million Opening
      Tim Burton’s “Dumbo” is flying toward a $48 million opening weekend in North America, while the second session of Jordan Peele’s “Us” should take in about $32 million, early estimates showed on Friday.

      The movie stars Danny DeVito as the owner of a struggling circus who enlists Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell), and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock.

      ‘Killing Eve’ Final Season 2 Trailer: The Obsession Returns

      Given the show airs on BBC America, though albeit, is now available on AMC and Hulu and elsewhere, not everyone is as versed in “Killing Eve” as they should be. Many are as obsessed with it as the characters are on it with each other, but it’s taken time for others to catch on. However, take it from someone who is a late adopter to the show who arrived to the show after its critical acclaim, it more than matches the hype and plaudits.

      ‘Dumbo’ Leads the Weekend Box Office, But Flies Below Expectations

      ‘Dumbo’ Leads the Weekend Box Office, But Flies Below Expectations
      Dumbo” is the third of the three highly anticipated March releases that gave hope for a 2019 box-office rebound. It debuted at $45 million, falling below expectations (unlike the earlier “Captain Marvel” and Jordan Peele’s “Us”).

      That doesn’t make it a dud, but it does reaffirm how hard it will be for the theaters to recover from the early-year disappointments. This month was expected to put a significant dent in the shortfall, and it did — at the end of March, the year-to-date revenue decline is 17%, compared to 27% at the end of February.

      However, this week’s performance doesn’t get much of the credit. The total gross for all films will be very close to the same weekend last year. And as we approach what is considered “summer”, it will become harder to make up the difference.

      WGA Outplays Talent Agencies as Precursor to Next Year’s Tough Studio Talks (Column)

      The 95%-vote majority in the WGA’s referendum on imposing a tough new code of conduct for talent agents sends a clear signal to the industry. The WGA is gearing up for tough negotiations in the coming year with the major studios on the master film and TV contract that expires May 1, 2020.

      During the past 12 months, the guild has deftly revved up its organizing infrastructure around the agency franchise agreement talks. An obscure contract that hadn’t been touched in 46 years became the focus of a wildly successful WGA membership outreach campaign. That’s in part because the guild’s drive to reform the Artists Manager Basic Agreement of 1976 came from the grassroots — a steady stream of complaints from members about what appear to be systemic abuses of the TV packaging process, a creative template for compensation invented by William Morris Agency in the days of radio.

      WGA Members Vote to Tighten Talent Agency Rules

      Members of the Writers Guild of America have voted overwhelmingly to support tightened restrictions on their agents — setting up a potentially chaotic scenario a week from now.

      The vote was 7,882 in favor of creating a new “Code of Conduct” for agents representing WGA with 392 voting against — that’s more than 95% supporting. The new rules require elimination of agencies receiving packaging fees and having ownership interest in affiliate production companies — demands that the agencies have said are not feasible.

      Online voting among the 15,000 members ended Sunday. Unless the WGA and agents can hammer out a negotiated compromise this week, the “Code of Conduct” will be imposed on April 7, following expiration of the current franchise agreement. It will require WGA members to fire agents who have not signed on to the code.

      That will create a confusing scenario for the industry as few agents have signed on to the code. Some WGA

      Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer Near Deal on Netflix Superhero Film

      Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer Near Deal on Netflix Superhero Film
      Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer are about to kick some serious box office ass — not that we’ll ever know. Deadline reports that the dream duo are nearing a deal with Netflix on superhero comedy “Thunder Force,” from “Tammy” scribe and McCarthy’s husband, Ben Falcone. Falcone is set to write and direct. Details are still thin, but the story will center on the two women getting superpowers and is set for a fall launch.

      Both McCarthy and Spencer are coming off Oscar successes. McCarthy nabbed her first Best Actress nomination for her work in Marielle Heller’s black comedy “Can You Ever Forgive Me?,” and Spencer took home the statue as a producer on “Green Book” when the period comedy won Best Picture. With such wins fresh in the minds of executives, it’s a no-brainer to pair up these two beloved talents.
