Brigitte Nielsen Wants to Play a Villain in the Marvel Universe

Brigitte Nielsen Wants to Play a Villain in the Marvel Universe
In Creed II, Brigitte Nielsen reprises her role of Ludmilla Drago, a Soviet gold-medal swimmer who is the ex-wife and spokeswoman to Soviet captain Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). She tells The Hollywood Reporter In Studio what it was like to step back into the iconic character’s shoes.

“It was so unexpected,” Nielsen said on playing Ludmilla again. “I had to pinch myself because to bring back Ludmilla Drago after 33 years is just about impossible, so I was very emotional.”

Nielsen’s cameo in the film was kept under wraps from fans, making her ...

10 Busiest Movie Actors of 2018, From Tessa Thompson to Michael B Jordan (Photos)
Michael B Jordan

The actor is in serious awards contention for his role in “Black Panther,” but also most recently starred in “Creed II,” “Fahrenheit 451” and “Kin.”

Josh Brolin

We all know Josh Brolin played the villain in both “Deadpool 2” And “Avengers: Infinity War” (which is a feat in itself), but he also starred in “Sicario 2: Day of the Soldado” and “The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter.”

Tessa Thompson

Thompson seems to have been in every movie this year, and that’s for good reason: She starred in “Annihilation” alongside Natalie Portman, as well as “Sorry to Bother You,” “Little Woods,” “Furlough” and “Creed II.”

Patrick Wilson

Wilson is now just making the rounds as King Orm in James Wan’s “Aquaman,” but the actor also starred in “Insidious: The Last Key,” “”The Commuter,” “The Nun,” “Nightmare Cinema” and he is currently filming the Untitled “Annabelle” film.

Michael B. Jordan's Stylist Breaks Down His Year of "Elevated" Fashion

"Elevated" is the word stylist Ade Samuel uses to describe Michael B. Jordan's Creed II style. The actor had a huge year beginning with Black Panther's release on Feb. 16, and Samuel has been working with Jordan since the Met Gala in May to craft his red carpet looks. She says she's inspired by the "vintage vibe" of Hollywood from the '60s and '70s to push new silhouettes for the super-villain star. "I’m really inspired by the luxury of Hollywood glam and just finding a way to modernize it for today,"...

Universal and 'The Grinch' Top Third Largest November of All-Time

Universal and 'The Grinch' Top Third Largest November of All-Time
For the fourth time, and for the second year in a row, November calendar grosses topped $1 billion at the domestic box office. However, while this November's grosses topped last year's, 2018 ranks as the third highest grossing November ever with $1.044 billion in domestic grosses behind the back-to-back years of 2012 and 2013. Leading the charge was Universal and Illumination's The Grinch, which in turn helped the studio take the monthly crown for the third time this year as Universal's yearly grosses are now pacing ahead of last year's with over $1.6 billion. Universal's release of Illumination's The Grinch brought in $189.7 million over the course of the month, following its November 9 release, and has since delivered over $225 million at the domestic box office. The film currently ranks as the second highest grossing film based on a Dr. Seuss property behind 2000's release of the live-action adaptation of The Grinch starring Jim Carrey. That film's $260 million in domestic grosses,

How Movie Songs By Kendrick Lamar, Kesha and Troye Sivan Hope to Last Beyond Their Films (Video)

How Movie Songs By Kendrick Lamar, Kesha and Troye Sivan Hope to Last Beyond Their Films (Video)
Producer Sounwave is used to “throwing paint on the wall” when he works with Kendrick Lamar. However, both he and Lamar were presented with an immense challenge and opportunity when they were asked to write original songs for Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther.”

Knowing that the movie could easily be the biggest film of the year (they were right), they had to find a way to make their songs fit the flow of individual moments, but also consider how their song might sound on the radio.

“When you have a movie like ‘Black Panther’ and you have a lot riding on it and you know how big the movie can be, and they give you scenes and you have to match the intensity of each scene, we’ve never done anything like this,” Sounwave told TheWrap’s Steve Pond. “He kind of left it up to me.

22 Movies the Critics Got Wrong in 2018 — IndieWire Critics Survey

  • Indiewire
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

This week’s question: What 2018 movie was everyone else wrong about?

Sarah Marrs (@Cinesnark), LaineyGossip.com, Freelance

People did not pay enough attention to “Bad Times at the El Royale”. Drew Goddard’s sophomore film is a moody piece of Lynchian dread, not quite horror but not quite thriller, which is perhaps why it flew under the radar and didn’t cause much of a stir–it defies easy, audience-friendly expectation. But it has one of the best ensemble casts of the year, some of the most memorable scenes, and while Cynthia Erivo is great in “Widows”, she is Unbelievable in “Bad Times”. And Jeff Bridges starts out doing a riff on The Dude, only to pull out on his better, emotional performances in recent memory. It’s just fantastic performance after fantastic performance,

Bo Report: ‘Mortal Engines’ bows but ‘The Grinch’ steals top spot

Mortal Engines’. (Photo courtesy of Universal Pictures)

Following on from middling reviews, Universal’s Mortal Engines, produced and co-written by Peter Jackson, couldn’t match The Grinch, Bohemian Rhapsody or Creed II at the Aussie box office last weekend.

Directed by Christian Rivers and based on the novel by Philip Reeve, the Nz-shot sci-fi starring Hera Hilmar and Hugo Weaving opened on $1.4 million from 327 screens. Due to release in the Us this week, it totalled just $US18 million in 43 international markets over the weekend.

Illumination/Universal’s The Grinch stole the number one spot in Oz its second round, reaping $2.5 million from 323 screens – a fall of only 11 per cent. Co-directed by Scott Mosier and Yarrow Cheney, the animated Dr. Seuss adaptation features a voice cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Cameron Seely and Rashida Jones. In total, the film has amassed $7.4 million to date in Australia, $US223.5 million in North America and $US322.4 million internationally.

‘Aquaman’ Makes Waves In China As ‘Mary Queen Of Scots,’ ‘Vox Lux,’ & ‘Ben Is Back’ Debut [Box Office]

It’s been three weeks now with the top three films dominating the box office. “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” “The Grinch,” and “Creed II” have steadily kept those top three spots, providing for what would seemingly be a boring month at the box office, at least narratively. But yet, here we are, and there’s plenty to talk about including outstanding audience retentions holds for all the films in the top 10 especially family fare.

‘Green Book’ Rises; Same 6 Films Lead Box Office for Unprecedented Third Weekend

‘Green Book’ Rises; Same 6 Films Lead Box Office for Unprecedented Third Weekend
This was the worst-grossing weekend of 2018, not that it matters; this pre-Christmas weekend is usually among the lowest. All distributors avoided it for any new release, even throwaway titles. Historically, next week can be even worse (unless your film is “Star Wars” or similar). The priority now is to stake a claim that doesn’t risk seeing a film pulled for Christmas.

So, no new films, decreased gross — and at the same time, better holds for films currently on screen. That formula explains this week’s results. However, the same six films have led all others for three straight weeks and that’s unprecedented.

It also could have impact on weeks ahead. “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” “The Grinch,” and “Creed II” all grossed over $10 million in their third weekend (or later), in a slow period: That suggests they will play through the holiday. That would mean a major bonus for all three,

'Ralph' Reigns Over Slow Weekend at the Box Office While 'Aquaman' Dominates in China Debut

'Ralph' Reigns Over Slow Weekend at the Box Office While 'Aquaman' Dominates in China Debut
The domestic weekend was, for the most part, as light as was expected. While it wasn't the lowest grossing weekend of the year so far, it was the second lowest with the top twelve delivering a combined $77.8 million. This is all in advance of what should be a profitable holiday season to come and we got a hint as to just how profitable it could be with the launch of WB's Aquaman in China this weekend where the film delivered a massive $93.6 million, becoming the #1 film globally from one market alone. Beginning with the domestic box office, while it looked like it might be neck-and-neck between Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet and Universal and Illumination's The Grinch at the top of the box office following Friday's estimates, Ralph carried the weekend as expected, though The Grinch wasn't far behind.

Box Office: ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Narrowly Defeats ‘Grinch’ in Sleepy Pre-Holiday Weekend

  • Variety
Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” topped a quiet weekend at the domestic box office, marking the third straight win for the animated sequel. It earned $16.2 million in its third week of release, generating $140 million since it opened over Thanksgiving.

Another cartooned adventure almost gave “Ralph” a run for its money. Illumination and Universal’s “The Grinch” pocketed $15.2 million in its fifth outing, marking a decline of just 15%. Based on the Dr. Seuss classic holiday tale, “The Grinch” has made $223.5 million in North America and $322.4 million globally.

A series of holdovers rounded out the top five as studios largely sat out the pre-holiday frame. Moviegoing will get a boost next weekend when “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “The Mule,” and “Mortal Engines” hit theaters. That will kick off a competitive Christmas race as “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Aquaman,” and “Bumblebee” enter the fray the following weekend. “Aquaman” got a head start overseas,

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ and ‘Grinch’ Neck-and-Neck on Quiet Box Office Weekend
With no new wide releases out this weekend, November’s family films were left to contend for the top spot for one more weekend, and Illumination/Universal’s “The Grinch” — the earliest of the family releases — may end up being the highest grossing film of that month.

Despite being in its fifth week, “Grinch” is neck-and-neck with Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” for the top spot on this weekend’s charts. “Ralph” is holding the lead with $16.2 million in its third weekend, while “Grinch” has $15.1 million in its fifth.

“Ralph” had the second-highest Thanksgiving opening weekend two weeks ago, just beating out that of Disney’s 2016 Thanksgiving entry “Moana.” Since then, “Ralph” has been showing numbers consistent with “Moana,” and is currently 3 percent behind the pace of that film with a domestic total of $140 million.

‘Ralph’ Keeps No. 1 Away From Greedy ‘Grinch’ For Third Weekend In A Row With $16M+ – Sunday Update

  • Deadline
Sunday Am 4th update/writethru after Saturday and Friday updates: Refresh for updated chart After a nail-biting face-off between Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet and Universal/Ilumination’s The Grinch for No. 1 in the slowest of slowest weekends, Ralph won No. 1 by a distance, $16.1M to $15.1M. Essentially, Ralph 2 had the better Saturday over Grinch, with roughly $7.8M to $7.1M. Similar to Thanksgiving openers before it, Moana and Coco, Ralph 2 notches a three-weekend No. 1 streak. Rivals believe that Ralph 2 will come in around $16.4M.

An interesting piece of B.O. trivia here is that it will rep the first time in box office history that two animated films have ruled the top two spots at the weekend B.O. for two weekends in a row. All previous instances where two feature toons shared the top two spots were only confined to one weekend, and never extended into a second.

Ralph 2‘s running total by today is poised to be around $141M, which would be 4% ahead of Coco at the same point in time (final domestic was $209.7M), and 2% behind Moana (final stateside $248.7M). This puts the Disney sequel’s final domestic tally between $215M-$240M, and at the rate that Grinch is going, industry projections figure the Green Guy could beat the Big Lug, with a final between $245M-$250M.

We’ll have three animated features in the top ten next weekend when Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse arrives with a projected opening of $35M+, the first of many event pics to ring in the year-end holiday season. The movie arrives already an awards contender, with a Golden Globe animated film nomination and NY Film Critics Circle win for Best Animated Film, and a 99% fresh on Rt to top it off. The studio held paid sneaks on Friday night at 7Pm and on Saturday at 2Pm and we hear there was a terrific audience response, with multiple sellouts in various locations.

Warner Bros./DC’s Aquaman doesn’t hold sneaks until Dec. 15 stateside, but it’s already playing in China, and executives on the Burbank lot are so excited by the near $94M results, they’re doing water follies. Aquaman dominated 85% of the Middle Kingdom’s weekend business and drew $14M at 559 Imax venues, making it the best WB large-format debut ever in the market.

Paramount’s Bumblebee also held paid 7Pm sneaks last night at 325 theaters. We hear that seats began to sell out as the night drew near. Given the amount of theaters that Bumblebee was playing, its sneak B.O. is not at the $1M-plus level, as Sony’s Amazon-promoted launches of Jumanji 2 ($1.86M) and Hotel Transylvania 3 ($1.3M), only because those titles previewed at 1,000-plus major circuit theaters. Bumblebee holds its Hollywood premiere tonight. 15 reviews –five of them from top critics–are providing a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score at this minute.

Meanwhile, MGM/New Line’s Creed II had a great Saturday night of $4.7M, +65%, giving the Rocky spin-off a double-digit third weekend of $10.3M (-38%), for a running total by Eod of $96.4M, pacing 22% ahead of Creed at the same point in its B.O. cycle (final domestic was $109.7M). New York continues to be a really strong market for the sequel as well, as does Atlanta and Chicago. Burbank, CA AMC was also a standout theater as well here in the west.

Again, there’s zero wide entries this weekend, as studios prefer to blow their P&A closer to Christmas, when there’s a greater chance of moviegoers attending. Holiday activities are currently stealing moviegoers away, and it’s not worth the investment to introduce anything new. We were in a slightly similar situation last weekend, with Screen Gem’s The Possession of Hannah Grace in play at 2,065 locations. In its second outing, the horror movie is earning an estimated $3.1M in 9th place, -51%, which is great for a horror film, as they tend to sink on average -60% in weekend two. This despite the fact that audiences aren’t enjoying the movie, with a 36% overall positive and an awful 24% definite recommend. Males over 25 rep a third of ticket buyers, with Females under 25 behind with 26%. Again, the $6M pic was a small play for Sony, profit-wise, and it will be making north of $11M by Eod.

Interestingly enough, last weekend wasn’t the lowest-grossing one for 2018, with total ticket sales per ComScore of $118.2M. Ytd, the weekend B.O. low water mark belongs to the third weekend of September, 21-23, which totaled $92.1M. Still, in what is shaping up to be a record year at the domestic box office with north of $11.4 billion, that wasn’t a bad low, when you consider that four weekends in 2017 made less than $90M each, with the penultimate weekend of summer, Aug. 25-27, bottoming out with $69.3M.

Distributors with potential awards contenders took advantage of this weekend’s slowdown and either launched new titles in New York and Los Angeles, or widened a title in response to its recent Golden Globes nominations.

Of the holdovers, Universal/Participant Media/DreamWorks’ Green Book had a great hold of 0%, fueled by five Golden Globe noms and an additional 116 theaters, in weekend 4, with an estimated $3.9M in 7th and a running total that’s very close to $20M. Last weekend rivals were saying that the film wasn’t doing great everywhere, but c’mon, it’s very obvious word of mouth is working here. It’s the only movie at the weekend B.O. to be even with its results last weekend! What studio doesn’t want that kind of weekend hold?

Warner Bros.’ A Star Is Born, which also counts five noms for Best Drama, Best Actress Drama Lady Gaga, Best Actor Drama Bradley Cooper, Best Director Cooper (it’s the first time since Kevin Costner’s 1990 western Dances With Wolves that a director/actor/best picture trifecta has been nominated at the Globes), and the original song “Shallow” is seeing a 38% surge thanks to its Imax runs, for a 10th weekend of $2.5M in 11th and a running total of $197.1M. Imax runs made $800K, or 32% of the weekend’s business.

Fox Searchlight’s expansion of Yorgos Lanthimos’ period comedy The Favourite from 34 to 91 locations off five Golden Globe noms for Best Comedy, Best Actress Olivia Colman, two Best Supporting Actresses with Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone and Best Screenplay and drew $1.43M in 12th, which is very good when you consider other female-skewing platform comps with similar weekend locations: The Theory of Everything earned $1.5M at 140 theaters in its weekend 3, and Wild did $1.5M at 116 locations in weekend 2 and The Shape of Water in weekend 3 at 158 theaters made $1.7M.

CBS Films’ At Eternity’s Gate starring Willem Dafoe as Vincent Van Gogh, which recently notched the actor his third Golden Globe nomination, jumped from 48 sites to 174 in its fourth weekend grossing $310K (+66%) for a running total of $1M. The movie, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival, is 82% certified fresh on Rt.

Of the prolific frosh specialty fare, Focus Features’ Mary Queen of Scots is doing the best, with $200K at four NY/La locations and a great screen average of $50K — and that’s without any Golden Globe noms. At Thanksgiving last year, the label launched The Darkest Hour, warmed by Gary Oldman’s sublime turn as Winston Churchill, which debuted to $175K and a $43.7K screen average. That movie rode Oldman’s awards momentum all the way to $56.4M at the domestic B.O., which turned out to be Joe Wright’s highest-grossing pic in U.S/Canada. Mary has a low Rotten Tomatoes score of 68% fresh, and if it doesn’t earn any kudos, it may not see the same B.O. fate as Darkest Hour. Tbd.

Neon is reporting their dark drama Vox Lux, which stars Oscar winner Natalie Portman as a school shooting survivor turned pop star, with an opening screen average of $27K at 6 locations, or $162,2K. Portman’s Jackie, another dark tale about JFK’s widowed First Lady, posted a $55.7K opening screen average, or $278K at five theaters. 2010’s Black Swan, which Portman won an Oscar for, remains her top opening platform screen average at $80,2K from 18 theaters or $1.4M. Vox Lux also has a low Rt score of 66% fresh.

Roadside Attractions’ Ben Is Back, starring Lucas Hedges and Julia Roberts, about a drug-addicted teenager who shows up at his family’s home on Christmas Eve, made $80,9K at four NY/La sites, for a per- screen of $20,2K, which is not good when you consider that the opening per-screen for Hedges’ Manchester by the Sea was $64K at 4 theaters, Roberts’ August: Osage County was $35.8K at 5, and Amazon’s recent Beautiful Boy (another tale of teenage drug addiction that earned Timothee Chalamet a Supporting Actor Golden Globe nom) opened to a $54,7K average at four sites. Ben Is Back has an 85% certified fresh Rt score. However, to be solid at this season, these arthouse pics have to be around at least a $50K opening screen average.

Universal also has the 25th anniversary re-release of Oscar winner Schindler’s List at 1,029 theaters, and it only grossed $551K. That’s not spectacular for a re-release, but we have to consider the fact that it’s a serious drama, and it’s typically the blockbusters or the dashing epics (like Lawrence of Arabia) that receive a polished major studio re-release. No real comps here. Steven Spielberg’s 40th Anniversary re-release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind made $1.7M over the 2017 Labor Day three-day at 901 locations, which was also timed to a DVD re-release. Men over 25 at 42% and Women over 25 at 32% were the biggest draws here, but the re-release is only getting a 63% overall positive. The original movie, when it was released, earned an A+ CinemaScore.

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet,’ ‘The Grinch’ Vie for Box Office Crown in Quiet Weekend
Animated family flicks are proving their worth ahead of the upcoming holiday rush, with “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch” both making claims on the top spot with an estimated $15 million each.

Current estimates show Disney’s “Ralph” ahead by roughly $600,000. If estimates hold, it will mark the film’s third consecutive weekend at the top. The family feature, now in its third weekend, has totaled $128 million domestically with another $87 million overseas, while Universal’s “The Grinch,” currently in its fifth frame, has taken in $275 million worldwide.

Meanwhile, the third frame of MGM-New Line’s “Creed II” should slot into third with about $9 million while the two animated flicks battle it out. The Michael B. Jordan-starrer has taken in $88 million domestically and $15 million in international markets.

The fourth weekend of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and “Bohemian Rhapsody’s” sixth frame are both looking

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ to Top ‘The Grinch’ in Slow Box Office Weekend
Animated family fare is dominating at the North American box office, with “Ralph Breaks the Internet” having the edge over “The Grinch” with about $15 million this weekend, early estimates showed Friday.

With no fresh wide releases hitting domestic theaters, the third weekend of Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” was topping the fifth weekend of Universal-Illumination’s “The Grinch” by about $300,000. Should projections hold, “Ralph” could become the fourth movie released this year to top the box office for three weeks straight, joining “Black Panther,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Ralph Breaks the Internet” should wind up the weekend with around $138 million in its first 19 days in North America, while “The Grinch” will go past $220 million domestically. MGM-New Line’s third weekend of “Creed II” is heading for third place in the $9 million to $10 million range to lift the eighth iteration in the Rocky franchise to about
