Could Little Beat Hellboy At The Box Office This Weekend?

The movie season is starting to heat up and almost every week there’s at least one major release heading to theaters. Last week, that movie was Shazam!, which went on to claim a nice $53.5 million at the box office. This weekend, Hellboy and Little are stepping up to the plate to get that No. 1 spot, but it looks like neither film will top Shazam!

Current box office tallies have Hellboy and Little battling for second place, with neither expected to top $15 million. (Pray for Missing Link, which isn’t even expected to top $6 million.)

Based on late Friday estimates, per Deadline, Hellboy will gross around $12.3 million for the weekend. It’s a disappointing number for the comic book movie, which was projected to open in the range of $16 million to $20 million. The film was made on a $50 million budget. Comparatively, the first Hellboy movie opened with $23 million in 2004.

Fans of Hellboy have long awaited the release of a third installment, but the new film is a reboot that ignores the continuity of the previous films. Guillermo del Toro was not involved with the reboot, which was directed by Game of Thrones alum Neil Marshall. Coming out of the gate, Hellboy received largely negative reviews, currently sitting at a 15% on Rotten Tomatoes. Additionally, the film reportedly wasn’t widely available to the press prior to release, which is typically not a good sign. Hellboy also has a “C” CinemaScore from polled moviegoers.

Meanwhile, Little, the body-swap comedy that stars Regina Hall and Marsai Martin, is currently sitting at an estimated $14.9 million opening. That falls much more in line with initial opening projections of $14 million to $18 million for the film. Little has gotten mixed reviews, but not so drastically that it’s affected audience turnout at the theater. The comedy sits at a solid CinemaScore of B+. The movie cost $20 million to make, so things are looking positive for the comedy.

On the other end of the box office spectrum, the stop-motion-animated Missing Link is almost completely missing in action. Box Office Mojo suggests its opening weekend is unlikely to top $6 million. What the heck happened there?

When the weekend box office reports come out tomorrow, Little may end up in second place while Hellboy opens in third place. However #2 and #3 turn out, Shazam! is expected to stay the No. 1 movie at the box office. The fun superhero movie, which scored positive reviews, is expected to make about $23.4 million this weekend, based on Friday projections. That would brings its total domestic box office run up to just over $93 million. The worldwide total is currently just over $200 million. With a sequel already in the works, this is another win for the DCEU, though perhaps not as extreme as Aquaman was.

We’ll see if Shazam! can hold on to first place for three weeks in a row because, after that, Avengers: Endgame hits theaters. That would be the single greatest upset in cinema history if Shazam! beat that film.

John Wick 3 Star Thinks Franchise Could Continue For Another 10 Years

No one has said John Wick will be a trilogy. It’s possible Keanu Reeves’ John Wick will return after John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum for John Wick 4 or beyond. Director Chad Stahelski has said he’d be down to make a fourth John Wick film if the audience wants more. And we already know a TV series is in the works following The Continental hotel.

Ian McShane plays Winston, manger of the New York City hotel. He’s currently promoting Hellboy, the Deadwood movie, and John Wick 3. During a game of Would You Rather, McShane was asked whether he’d rather see the Deadwood movie remade in 10 years or John Wick remade in 10 years.

John Wick seems darn near invincible, but part of me wondered if John Wick 3 was going to wrap up the story and maybe even kill off the Patron Saint of Puppies. After all, there’s a global contract out for John Wick. Even with Halle Berry’s Sofia and her two dogs in the mix, supposedly on John’s side, it’s going to be tough for John to get out of this jam.

But Ian McShane spoke to Collider about John Wick as if Mr. Wick is still around after Parabellum. McShane also hinted to the film preparing for whatever happens next time. That gives me hope that John Wick 3 is just the latest chapter in a story that could continue for a while.

Another 10 years? Well, they do say Keanu Reeves is immortal. He hasn’t aged much in the past 10 years, so when he’s 64 I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t still look and act the same.

As Ian McShane noted, John Wick 3 is meant to tell us more about John Wick’s background. Anjelica Huston’s new character is meant to play a role there, and she’s also the Director of The High Table, the council of crime lords. Maybe she’ll be on John’s side too? Based on the trailers, Asia Kate Dillon’s Adjudicator, another member of the High Table, is not exactly on John’s side. And there are plenty of new assassins in the mix, including Mark Dacascos as a John Wick fan called Zero who is now out to kill his idol.

Here’s more of what we know about John Wick 3 so far. It opens in theaters May 17, and will probably have a stronger opening than the initial projections. But we’ll see. If you do want John Wick to continue for another 10 years, you’ll have to show him some love at the box office. In December, Chad Stahelski told EW he would happily make a fourth John Wick film if the audience enjoys John Wick 3 and wants more…

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Just Unveiled New Footage, Check It Out

In Star Wars movies, so much of what we see is never real, it’s digital effects and movie magic. However, for Galaxy’s Edge, everything is quite real. Everything from the rusted out landspeeder to the Millennium Falcon looks just as real as it does on the movie screen. In fact, some of the shots look almost identical the concept art that was released years ago, showing just how close to the mark Walt Disney Imagineering has come in trying to recreate the world of the galaxy, far, far away for us.

While there were no major reveals at the Disney Parks panel at Star Wars Celebration, like the opening date of the new land’s second phase, the panel brought together all the pieces of information that we had in one place, expanding on details and confirming things that had previously only been rumor.

More to come…

Avengers: Endgame’s Pre-Sales Broke Another Record

There are only a few weeks remaining until the release of Avengers: Endgame and it’s fair to say that anticipation is well past the boiling point. People are absolutely hungry for this movie, from devouring scraps of new footage to concocting crazy fan theories. For more proof, fans damn near broke the internet when tickets went on sale earlier this month, which led to some record breaking. Now Endgame has broken even more records, as Atom Tickets reports that it’s the best pre-sales title of all time.

It felt like just about every Marvel fan and their grandmother was trying to buy tickets to Avengers: Endgame when they finally went on sale earlier this month. Multiple theater chains and ticket buying services such as Fandango and Atom reported crashes from the sheer number of people trying to buy Avengers: Endgame tickets. It certainly made for an interesting (and stressful) experience, but millions of people were clearly still able to buy tickets.

So many people were able to buy tickets, in fact, that Endgame broke Fandango’s first-day ticket pre-sales record in just six hours, passing by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Avengers: Infinity War. The blockbuster performed similarly on Atom Tickets, becoming the best selling one-day pre-sales title.

Now Atom is reporting that Endgame has broken another record for the ticketing service. It’s now the company’s best selling movie of all-time. It only took Endgame 10 days to do this, which is itself a record! Aquaman was the previous record holder and it took the film 32 days to do it.

The Marvel blockbuster has broken several other records on Atom as well. Within the first hour of tickets going on sale, Endgame sold three times the amount of tickets Avengers: Infinity War sold last year. Additionally, in just one day, it sold five times the amount of the previous record set by Aquaman. Finally, after one week on Atom, it sold nearly twice as many tickets as the next four record holders combined, which includes Aquaman, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Avengers: Infinity War and Captain Marvel.

Endgame is playing for keeps! It’s not a surprise that people will be turning out in droves to see Endgame opening weekend, but the number looks to be staggering. The film is tracking to potentially open domestically in the range of $230 million and $283 million, with worldwide projections as high as $800 million. Tracking can change the closer we get to the release date, but that’s still an insane amount of money.

Hopefully, you got your tickets with little trouble and are all set to see Avengers: Endgame when it arrives in theaters on April 26.

Vin Diesel’s Fast And Furious 9 Video Highlights ‘The Dom Shrine’

Vin Diesel is busy preparing to film Fast and Furious 9, updating fans every step of the way. He’s been posting photos of his impressive muscles, in case we forget he’s a badass, but even tough guys need a quiet place to reflect. Apparently Diesel’s space for Fast 9 is called The Dom Shrine, in honor of his character, Dominic “Dom” Toretto. Here’s Diesel giving a glimpse of The Dom Shrine:

As Vin Diesel noted in his Instagram video, one of the Fast movies is always playing in the background of the shrine to keep him in the right mindset:

Vin Diesel has been posting some thoughts on Fast 9 via social media, but in general we don’t know too much about the ninth movie in the franchise. Fast 9 will reportedly start filming in late June at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden outside London. Justin Lin is said to be returning as director.

Fast and Furious 9 is currently scheduled to open May 22, 2020, with a 10th movie behind it marking the final film in the series. Jordana Brewster (Mia Toretto) is confirmed to return for Fast 9, but last we heard Michelle Rodriguez (Letty Ortiz) wasn’t sure she was coming back, it depended on the script. So official cast and plot updates are waiting in the wings.

For now, we have some deep thought reflections from Vin Diesel, including this look back with Paul Walker (Brian O’Conner), who started the franchise with Diesel in 2001 in The Fast and the Furious.

Sadly, as you know, we lost Paul Walker in 2013 after a horrible car crash. He wasn’t finished filming Furious 7 at the time, but his brothers helped as stand-ins to complete Walker’s final scenes as Brian.

Fast 8, The Fate of the Furious, ended up getting a lot of attention for the behind-the-scenes beefs. Now we’re at Fast 9, and apparently Vin Diesel has fatherhood on his mind. He hinted as much in this photo which he tagged for #Fast9:

Speaking of fatherhood, Vin Diesel seems to be ready to pass his love of fast cars on to the next generation:

Since Fast 9 is still in pre-production, we may have to wait a month or two for more official updates before the start of filming. Here’s what we know so far about the movie. In the meantime, we’ll keep looking to Vin Diesel to share updates behind-the-scenes. Fast franchise fans can also look forward to the spinoff Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, starring The Rock and Jason Statham, which opens in theaters August 2.

Little Could Top Hellboy As Both Films Look To Open Behind Shazam!

The Time Star Wars Security Had To Bribe Tourists To Delete Spoiler Photos

Creating creatures for Star Wars films is no easy feat. In the case of the sea creatures made famous in Star Wars: The Last Jedi thanks to their green milk, a puppeteer spent hours inside with only Coca Cola and diapers to appease him or her. However, stuffing a live human inside a puppet for hours wasn’t the only bizarre thing the crew on Episode VIII had to deal with. The crew also had to deal with American tourists attempting to take spoiler photos of the creatures.

Special effects creative supervisor Neal Scanlan told a zany story at Star Wars Celebration, noting that when the crew was shooting sea cow scenes in Ireland, an American couple starting snapping images of the brand new Star Wars creature from a distance. He said:

As you could imagine, security was obviously displeased and rushing around to rectify the situation. We know from past history that the sea cows were carefully created in Pinewood studios from foam latex and then flown by helicopter to Ireland, where the main sea cow and two smaller background sea cows were constructed. It was an ordeal and hassle to get them to the filming location and then to have to deal with factors outside their control I’d guess had to feel a little bit ridiculous.

From what Neal Scanlan revealed, the American tourists may not have really understood what they were filming, but had the images gotten out, they would have been spoilers nonetheless.

This isn’t the first time a major movie or TV show has been spoiled by a seemingly random turn of events. We just heard a story like a week ago about how Game of Thrones did a bazillion things to make sure security was tight in Belfast and then a festival came to town that included a giant ferris wheel basically setting up “a viewing platform” for the set. Rough.

So, while it seems zany that American tourists could get close enough to film the sea cows on the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, weird stuff like this happens every single day.

Ultimately, all was well that ends well. I can remember seeing the creatures for the first time and being both wowed and disturbed by the  sequence, particularly when Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker milked the darn creature and then drank its green bounty. The perfectly shocked look that Daisy Ridley quickly makes and then tries to disguise on her face is still etched in my mind. It’s been over a year since the movie came out and it’s still memorable.

So, the shock value was certainly there with this particular creature, which Neal Scanlan also mentioned at Star Wars Celebration was a creation that came from Rian Johnson’s mind.

We’ll have to wait and see what’s in store for the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but if the first look at the new creatures is any indication, we should be in for treat. The Rise of Skywalker will hit theaters on December 20, 2019. The first trailer for the new movie is out now.

Mark Hamill Loves All The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Speculation

Hey, remember when we were all like “Who is ‘The Last Jedi?'” Good times. Star Wars fans immediately returned to speculation mode after the title of Star Wars: Episode IX was revealed to be The Rise of Skywalker.

Which Skywalkers are rising? Who is a Skywalker?

You know who loves this? Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. No stranger to trolling, Hamill must be cackling as hard as Emperor Palpatine at all the furious scrambling for answers. He seems relieved to finally be able to address the “cool title” J.J. Abrams went with for the end of the Skywalker Saga. He also helpfully added names to the Skywalker speculation list, as if he doesn’t already know exactly what the script reveals:

As usual, Star Wars fans responded with some great comments and suggestions. We all have our favorite and least favorite characters and storylines, whether they carried over from the original trilogy, the prequels, or the sequels. I’m fond of this debate over Kylo/Ben Solo (Adam Driver):

Yes to slow digestion for a thousand years. I’m not sure Ben would rise from the dark just to ask Rey out — and Daisy Ridley did tell fans The Rise of Skywalker wouldn’t have another shirtless Kylo/Rey ForceTime scene. But as the son of Leia, Ben Solo does have Skywalker blood. He, Luke and Leia are the known Skywalkers at this point. The Force Awakens hinted to Rey also possibly being a Skywalker, but The Last Jedi seemed to shut that down. Seemed to, anyway. Who knows what’s ahead now.

Mark Hamill openly invited speculation on his own Twitter thread, so fans replied with their own predictions. Since both Luke and apparently Palpatine are returning, despite both appearing to have died in past Saga movies, some fans are hoping for major Force ghost action ahead.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the culmination of all three trilogies, so fans are looking back to the prequels and original trilogy for hints on what characters might be involved. Director J.J. Abrams said the title of this film “had a very weird responsibility” since it had to mark the end of nine movies.

Anything goes at this point, just one day after the first teaser was revealed at Star Wars Celebration 2019. And I do mean teaser. We should expect a full official trailer to arrive later in the year. So feel free to share your own theories and prepare to revise them in the months ahead before Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in theaters December 20. After that, there will be some kind of hiatus before the next Star Wars films rise.

Fantastic Beasts 3: Warner Bros. Reportedly Worried About Johnny Depp Backlash

Warner Bros. is currently preparing for Fantastic Beasts 3, the third of five planned movies in Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s series. Johnny Depp has a lead role as dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. But now executives are reportedly worried about backlash as the legal battle between Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard rages on.

You may recall Johnny Depp’s $50 million defamation suit against Amber Heard, alleging her abuse allegations against him were part of an elaborate hoax to advance her career; he also claimed her op-ed cost him his job with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Amber Heard just responded to Johnny Depp’s lawsuit by detailing some graphic allegations against him, via The Post, claiming he became “the Monster” when drunk or medicated, and kicked and choked her, and then often wouldn’t remember his violent behavior. She shared text messages said to be from him and his assistant acknowledging and apologizing for Depp’s alleged behavior.

Johnny Depp’s lawyer, Adam Waldman, claimed again that Amber Heard’s allegations were a hoax, and said they were currently interviewing other women who had come forward claiming they were victims of violence and other abuse by Heard.

But the continued play of abuse allegations in headlines has reportedly concerned some Warner Bros. execs, at least according to sources who spoke to The Post.

CEO Kevin Tsujihara recently exited Warner Bros. after a sexual misconduct casting couch scandal.

J.K. Rowling backed Johnny Depp when concerns were previously voiced about including him in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. She wrote on her website in December 2017 that Harry Potter fans had “legitimate concerns” but “[b]ased on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies.”

Now, this source claims not everyone is happy that J.K. Rowling made such a public statement:

Warner Bros. reps didn’t respond to The Post’s requests for comment, so all we have to go on is the word of these unnamed sources — who do seem to be in Amber Heard’s corner — plus Johnny Depp’s attorney — who is clearly in Depp’s corner.

Whatever the truth of this short-lived but apparently never-ending marriage, it’s still not over yet. Johnny Depp’s lawyer has issued subpoenas to Amber Heard, “her hoax assisting friends, Elon Musk and other witnesses” to explain the evidence they plan to show on their end.

Fantastic Beasts 3 was meant to start filming this summer, but production was delayed to fall 2019 to give the film more prep time. According to Dan Fogler (Jacob) the third movie is going to be “gigantic” and “bigger than the first two combined,” including travel to Brazil.

The last we heard about Fantastic Beasts 3 was last month from the now ousted Kevin Tsujihara, who acknowledged that the second film — Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald — didn’t perform as well as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, “but I think we know what we need to do to get the third film hopefully even better than the first one. And J.K. Rowling is really working hard now on that third script, and we’re going to get it right.”

Here’s everything we know about Fantastic Beasts 3 up to this point. J.K. Rowling is the screenwriter of the entire series, and she said she has a plan for five movies, leading up to the big duel between Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) and Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

6 Things The Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Needs To Include From The Video Games

Sonic The Hedgehog

Sega’s mascot Sonic The Hedgehog is finally getting his own movie, and it’s safe to say there are quite a few folks worried about it. Granted, it sounds like things are on the right track with Ben Schwartz voicing Sonic and Jim Carrey portraying Dr. Robotnik, but it takes more than great casting to make a good video game movie. If it didn’t, Doom may be remembered as a masterpiece, and it’s almost universally not.

So what makes a great video game movie? There’s no explicit formula, but it’s fair to say sticking to the source material more often than not will make people happy. That’s a bit complicated considering the Sonic franchise has changed quite a bit since its first game, and not always in ways consumers have appreciated. In spite of that, should the movie contain these types of references to the franchise, Sonic The Hedgehog fans will be satisfied.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Box Art

Music From The Sega Genesis Era

The early Sonic The Hedgehog games feature some of the best videogame music of the ’90s. Green Hill Zone, Emerald Hill Zone, basically all the “Zones” from the first and second games have iconic songs the movie should include. Whether it’s a phone ringtone, a song on the radio or an orchestral track doesn’t matter. We may get something even better as the prolific Junkie XL could craft quite the homage to Sonic’s tracks.

Of all the things the Sonic The Hedgehog movie should include from the video games, this is definitely the most important. It’s fair to assume many ticket holders will show up for the nostalgia factor, and what better way than to hit them with the ear-worms they jammed out to while playing their Sega Genesis and blasting through bottles of Kool-aid Jammers? Did we get older, or was there always never enough juice in those things?

Sonic and Tails Sonic The Hedgehog

Sonic’s Friends

Sonic The Hedgehog may be the most important character of the franchise, but he’s not the only one folks love. There’s his sidekick Tails, who’s been with Sonic since Sonic The Hedgehog 2, and other iconic characters like Knuckles and Amy. That just scratches the surface of this universe really, and doesn’t even get into the Chao, Blaze or the gun-wielding anti-hero Shadow The Hedgehog. If Shadow doesn’t get introduced, how can we have a gritty spin off?

I kid, mainly, although it will be a bit weird if Sonic The Hedgehog only has Sonic as the sole speedy thing rushing around. So far, there’s been no mention of any other of Sonic’s friends, so this may just be a solo adventure where friends could come into the picture in latter installments. Or, this could be a case where the film pulls a Super Mario Bros. and make bastardizations of the iconic characters. We just don’t know yet!

Sonic Adventures DX Director's Cut Sonic Tails

Smart-Ass Dialogue

Sonic didn’t speak in his first set of video game adventures, but his television show and games that followed have made him out to be a bit of a smart-ass. Not so much that he’s some massive douchebag, but kind of in a way that feels very reminiscent of Bart Simpson. If Sonic The Hedgehog wants to stay true to Sonic’s character, there needs to be some overconfidence and smart-ass behavior incorporated.

It appears there will be some of that, at least if one interprets comments by Jim Carrey about the film that way. He assured there will be some edgy moments that appeal to all audiences, although was speaking primarily to his character. He also mentioned the family group the movie is catered to, which speaks to the PG rating. Honestly, that’s a good wheelhouse for the character, and he can have that “edge” without it being too cringe-inducing.

Dr. Robotnik Robots Sonic The Hedgehog

Massive And Elaborate Robots

Dr. Ivo Robotnik is known for robots and fights Sonic with them throughout the franchise. The creations he pilots may not be the best quality, but they’re certainly big, elaborate and fun to look at. Typically Sonic can destroy these with a handful of jumps, or via some weak spot on the robot. He has the design methods of Star Wars: Rogue One‘s Galen Erso, except he’s not secretly wishing Sonic destroys his evil machines.

The ideal creation is some robot that has Robotnik chilling in a glass dome and some form of retractable drills. Robotnik really loves the massive drills, almost as much as he loves loading up every machine with an escape pod that always keeps him out of Sonic’s clutches once the fight is over. If one mega robot shows up with either or both of these attributes, I know I’ll be a happy camper.

Sonic The Hedgehog Rings

Gold Rings

Gold rings are perhaps the only thing as synonymous with Sonic The Hedgehog than the character himself. They’re the game’s form of health, and Sonic collects them throughout levels in order to stay alive after being hit. Should he be hit without any rings on him, he loses a life. Will Sonic The Hedgehog pay homage to this vital game mechanic in some way?

If it does, I’m reasonably certain it won’t be shown in a way in which Sonic is collecting a bunch of rings randomly floating around. Perhaps rings are the currency of this world, and we’ll see them in some micro form being exchanged for goods. If that were the case, it’d be cool to see Sonic obsessively collect these and then lose them all when he takes a big hit.

Animals Sonic The Hedgehog

Cute And Furry Animals

The casual video gamer may not have known or cared why there were so many cute and furry little animals locked away at the end of each classic Sonic The Hedgehog game, but knowing why explains a lot of the tension between Sonic and Dr. Robotnik. Dr. Robotnik uses the little animals to fuel his robots he creates, which is why they also pop out of enemies when Sonic smashes them.

We have no idea of whether or not that plot thread will be used in Sonic The Hedgehog, but it would be the traditional way to establish Dr. Robotnik as a villain in the movie. After all, who is going to side with a guy enslaving adorable animals within machines for energy? It’s actually way more twisted than the games led on the longer one thinks about it, so hopefully the movie uses this plot point in some way.

Sonic The Hedgehog is due to release Friday, November 8. Those interested in the movie can feel free to share their suggestions for what should be in the movie below, or chime in on how they think this movie will be received by audiences.
