‘Downton Abbey’ Refresher: Here’s Where All the Main Characters Left Off
It hasn’t been that long since “Downton Abbey” went off the air, but a lot has happened since the British historical drama ended its six-season run in 2016.

With the Focus Features film sequel hitting theaters this weekend, now’s the time to brush up on where we left off with the Crawley family in the series finale.

In his review for TheWrap where he compared the “Downton” film to “The Avengers,” critic Dave White described the theatrical sequel — set in 1927, two years after the finale — as “a densely packed two-hour episode that manages to touch on the lives of every main character (and there are over two dozen of them) and weave together what would amount to a season’s worth of narratives.”

Dumbo opens below expectations with $116 million at the global box office

Tim Burton’s second live-action Disney remake opened in theaters around the world this weekend, but it looks as though his take on the beloved 1941 film Dumbo is not going to reach anywhere near the heights of his 2010 Alice in Wonderland adaptation.

Dumbo topped the domestic box office with $45 million, knocking Jordan Peele’s Us down to second in its second weekend, while it added a further $71 million from international markets (including $10.7 million from China and $7.4 million from the UK) for a worldwide take of $116 million.

The first of three Disney animated remakes this year alongside Aladdin and The Lion King, Dumbo had been tracking a global debut of around $155 million. It came in well below expectations, and at this point it may struggle to reach the $299.5 million gross of 2016’s Burton-less Alice in Wonderland sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Movie Review – Dumbo (2019)

Dumbo, 2019.

Directed by Tim Burton.

Starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Eva Green, Danny DeVito, Nico Parker, Alan Arkin, Finley Hobbins, Joseph Gatt, DeObia Oparei, Roshan Seth, Sharon Rooney, and Douglas Reith.

Synopsis:

A young elephant, whose oversized ears enable him to fly, helps save a struggling circus, but when the circus plans a new venture, Dumbo and his friends discover dark secrets beneath its shiny veneer.

Disney’s industrious mission to remake their most beloved animated classics continues with Tim Burton’s Dumbo, a semi-ambitious yet undeniably messy update which delivers just enough magic to satisfy.

We all know the story – an adorable baby elephant with comically oversized ears is born, and after enduring bullying from the masses, he proves himself a majestic wonder before being reunited with his dear mother.

Curiously, this new version – written by Transformers franchise scribe Ehren Kruger – opts to compress most of the original animation

Movie Review – Dumbo (2019)

Dumbo, 2019.

Directed by Tim Burton.

Starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Finley Hobbins, Nico Parker, Sandy Martin, Joseph Gatt, Deobia Oparei, Roshan Seth, Lars Eidinger, Zenaida Alcalde, Douglas Reith, Phil Zimmerman, Miguel Muñoz Segura, Sharon Rooney, Michael Buffer, and Alan Arkin.

Synopsis:

A young elephant, whose oversized ears enable him to fly, helps save a struggling circus, but when the circus plans a new venture, Dumbo and his friends discover dark secrets beneath its shiny veneer.

Director Tim Burton excels as a purveyor of absurdist quirk and visual distinction, but 2019’s live-action Dumbo choreographs a tamer routine. You could swipe Burton’s name for multiple churn-and-burn studio directors beaten into regurgitated blockbuster submission without second guesses. Big-top carnival theatrics, animals dressed like humans, clear parallels to Disney’s recent corporate acquisition of Fox and the aftermath that’s ensuing in real time – you know the story, and

Dumbo to take flight with $155 million global opening

Reviews may have been mixed, but it doesn’t seem that is going to put off audiences from taking a trip to the circus this weekend as Walt Disney PicturesDumbo is expected to open with between $137 million and $155 million worldwide.

Director Tim Burton’s live-action reimagining of the animated classic is being projected for between $50 to $60 million domestically, which would put it well below Beauty and the Beast ($174.8 million), The Jungle Book ($103.3 million) and Burton’s previous Disney effort Alice in Wonderland ($116.1 million), as well as Maleficent ($69.4 million) and Cinderella ($67.9 million).

An additional $80 to $90 million from international markets will certainly help to soften that blow, but at this point it certainly looks like Dumbo may struggle to reach the heights of Disney’s previous animated remakes.

Second Opinion – Dumbo (2019)

Dumbo, 2019.

Directed by Tim Burton.

Starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Finley Hobbins, Nico Parker, Sandy Martin, Joseph Gatt, Deobia Oparei, Roshan Seth, Lars Eidinger, Zenaida Alcalde, Douglas Reith, Phil Zimmerman, Miguel Muñoz Segura, Sharon Rooney, Michael Buffer, and Alan Arkin.

Synopsis:

A young elephant, whose oversized ears enable him to fly, helps save a struggling circus, but when the circus plans a new venture, Dumbo and his friends discover dark secrets beneath its shiny veneer.

Simultaneously the greatest strength and fault in revered quirky filmmaker Tim Burton’s live-action adaptation of Dumbo is that it is only retreads ground for roughly the first 30 minutes before settling into something of a sequel regarding the titular elephant’s newfound fame status among carnival acts for being able to fly (using his abnormally large ears with the assistance of sucking up up a feather for courage).

Directed by Tim Burton.

Starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Eva Green, Danny DeVito, Nico Parker, Alan Arkin, Finley Hobbins, Joseph Gatt, DeObia Oparei, Roshan Seth, Sharon Rooney, and Douglas Reith.

Synopsis:

A struggling circus are aghast to discover that their potential star attraction has been born with oversized ears, but little do they know that young Dumbo the elephant has an amazing gift, one that could save them, but put the pint-sized pachyderm in a world of danger.

Rather than complain about Disney scraping the bottom of the creative barrel by churning out yet more of these live-action remakes, especially in the wake of the uninspired Beauty and the Beast, let’s instead concentrate on a small elephant diving into the bottom of one, with Tim Burton’s re-imagining of the 1941 animated classic.

It’s that word right there that’s the key to Dumbo being such a delightful success; re-imagining.

Disney’s Dumbo to take flight with $60 million opening, new clip released

In just a few short weeks, Disney will unleash the first of three remakes of its animated movies set to arrive this year with the release Tim Burton’s live-action adaptation of the 1941 classic Dumbo.

According to industry tracking estimates, the film – which features a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Eva Green and Danny DeVito – looks set to open to between $50 million and $60 million in its first weekend at the domestic box office.

Those figures are on the low end of Disney’s recent remakes (Beauty and the Beast leads the pack with a whopping $174.8 million while Burton’s previous effort Alice in Wonderland debuted to $116.1 million in 2010).

However, with the film set to open in the majority of markets (including China) across the same weekend, Disney will surely be fairly confident of taking a big chunk of the global box office when Dumbo takes flight.
