2020 Warner Bros Preview

  • JoBlo
2019 was quite a year for Warner Bros. Two of the top ten films of the year were theirs and both happened to be rated R. Both Joker and It: Chapter Two crossed the $300 and $200 million marks, respectively, and have shown that mature content and getting away from the Marvel Studios formula has potential. With Shazam! and Godzilla: King Of The Monsters crossing the $100 million mark and Pokemon Detective Pikachu doing great business globally, it was a great year despite underwhelming returns for…

Box Office: ‘Joker’ Becomes First R-Rated Movie to Hit $1 Billion

  • Variety
Warner Bros.’ “Joker” will on Friday become the first R-rated movie in history to earn over $1 billion at the global box office.

Joaquin Phoenix’s twisted take on the Batman villain marks the seventh movie this year (and first that’s not from Disney or Marvel) to join the elusive billion-dollar club. Among Warner Bros.’ movies, it’s only the fourth to reach that milestone after “Aquaman” and fellow Batman films “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Given its modest $62.5 million budget, “Joker” has become one of the most profitable movies of all time. “Joker” set numerous records since debuting on Oct. 4, including biggest domestic opening weekend for the month of October ($96 million). In the weeks leading up to its release, “Joker” elicited security concerns over its depiction of a mass murderer. It also drew outrage from the families and friends of survivors of the 2012 Aurora, Colo., movie

‘Downton Abbey’ Crowned No. 1 at Box Office With $31 Million Opening

‘Downton Abbey’ Crowned No. 1 at Box Office With $31 Million Opening
This weekend’s box office charts were expected to be a log jam among the September releases, but one film has risen clear above the others: Focus Features/Carnival’s “Downton Abbey,” which earned a $31 million opening weekend from 3,079 screens.

Downton Abbey” was projected before the weekend for an opening in the high teens and expected to leg out with older audiences well into October. But now it has passed the $23.6 million of “Insidious: Chapter 3” for the highest opening ever for a Focus release, setting it up for possibly an even longer run as a milder alternative to films like “Joker” that come out next month.

  • Deadline
Update; writethru: New Line/Warner Bros’ It Chapter Two had its second reading at the global and international box office this weekend, after screaming to the 2nd highest worldwide opening ever for a horror movie last session.

James Corden’s Pennywise Is Actually a Surprisingly Good ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant (Video)
What’s a demonic clown looking for love/children to eat to do when he can’t get the kids in his hometown to play with him? Float on over to “The Bachelorette” — er, “The BacheloreIT,” of course!

On Monday’s “Late Late Show,” Pennywise (as played by host James Corden) is one of the suitors on a knockoff version of the popular ABC dating competition. And the “It: Chapter Two” villain is not half bad at it. Or at least the politics of it. (Have we said “it’ enough yet?).

“Look, I’m not here to make friends,” Pennywise says during his talking head, which has a chyron that tells us he’s “????” years old, a Murderous Clown/Personal Trainer and from Stephen King’s fictional Derry, Maine. “I’m here to be the physical manifestation of your worst nightmare.”

35 Years After Freddy, ‘It: Chapter Two’ and ‘Conjuring’ Take New Line Into New Horror Golden Age

  • The Wrap
New Line Cinema is currently enjoying a multi-year horror movie hot streak continued this weekend with “It: Chapter Two,” the sequel to a Stephen King adaptation that redefined what a horror film is capable of making at the box office. “It: Chapter One” was not only the first horror film to gross over $100 million in its opening weekend, it also went on to earn $700 million worldwide, and this month’s “Chapter Two” opened to $91 million and $185 million worldwide. But New Line’s horror goldmine is familiar territory for a studio which was saved from failure 35 years ago by one of the most iconic franchises in the genre’s history. In the early 1980s, New Line was in trouble. The distributor that had brought John Waters and Werner Herzog to theaters was trying to get into production, but its early films were struggling, and founder Robert Shaye needed a big hit to turn things around.

‘It Chapter Two’ Filmmakers Break Down The Ritual of Chüd & Adapting Stephen King’s Cosmic Mythology

Pennywise is back and more vicious than ever before in It Chapter Two, director Andy Muschietti's followup to his record-smashing 2017 adaptation of Stephen King's It. Set up 27 years after the events of the first film, Chapter Two picks up with the adult Losers club -- James McAvoy's Bill Denbrough, Jessica Chastain's Beverly Marsh, Bill Hader's Richie Tozier, Jay Ryan's Ben Hanscom, James Ransone's Eddie Kaspbrak, Isaiah Mustafah's Mike Hanlon and Andy Bean's Stanley Uris -- when the child-eating creature known as It returns from slumber with a rather literal …

Movie Review – It Chapter Two (2019)

It Chapter Two, 2019.

Directed by Andy Muschietti.

Starring James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skargard, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Teach Grant, Jaeden Martell, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, and Nicholas Hamilton.

Synopsis:

Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.

Making a successful sequel to a hit horror movie is one thing, but doing so when the source material for the sequel already exists, and said source material is famously difficult to adapt no less, is a commanding challenge for any filmmaker.

So it’s not terribly surprising – though certainly somewhat disappointing – that It Chapter Two is quite the step down from its tight, smoothly controlled predecessor, which decisively one-upped its 1990 TV-movie forebear while paying (mostly) studious

It Chapter Two Will Scare Up Big Box Office, But Can It Set a New Horror Record?

It Chapter Two Will Scare Up Big Box Office, But Can It Set a New Horror Record?
Labor Day weekend closed out the summer movie season with something of a thud. Angel Has Fallen repeated in the top spot with an $11.7 million take. That's abysmal for a holiday weekend and, for any studio not named Disney, summer 2019 is best left in the rearview mirror. Moving on to greener (or in this case redder) pastures, this weekend Warner Bros. will release the much-anticipated It Chapter Two. By a hilariously wide margin, the horror sequel will best the competition at the box office, but the question is by how much? And can it possibly beat its predecessor to break a new horror record?

Starting with the first part of that question, It Chapter Two, which sees director Andy Muschietti return to finish what he started in 2017, is expected to have a huge box office debut, but estimates vary widely regarding how much it Pennywise may pull down this time around.

Review: Stephen King's "Needful Things" (1993) Starring Max Von Sydow; Kino Lorber Blu-ray Special Edition

  • CinemaRetro
By Sara Reineke

The Kino Lorber Blu-ray release of Stephen King’s 1993 Needful Things comes in the midst of Hollywood’s current remake fever. With such projects as Carrie (2013), It (2017), Pet Sematary (2019) and the upcoming It: Chapter Two (2019), this author’s works continue to draw movie audiences and infuse the horror genre as they had during the 1980s and 90s. Revisiting this original production of King’s 1991 novel - whereupon the devil comes to visit the small Maine town of Castle Rock - one is reminded why both his novels and films alike are regarded as iconic horror set pieces.

Following along on the heels of previous successes such as Carrie (1973), The Shining (1980), Pet Sematary (1989), and Misery (1990) - and released only a year before the iconic Shawshank Redemption (1994) - Needful Things shares many similarities to King’s other works. Meditating on the theme of human evil, this film puts the

Valerie Harper Dies: ‘Mary Tyler Moore’ and ‘Rhoda’ Star Was 80

Valerie Harper Dies: ‘Mary Tyler Moore’ and ‘Rhoda’ Star Was 80
Beloved television sitcom icon Valerie Harper died this Friday at the age of 80 after a long battle with cancer. American TV audiences in the 1970s grew up with Harper in their living rooms on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” in which she played the self-deprecating Rhoda Morgenstern. Rhoda served as the neurotic, comic foil to the otherwise buttoned-up Mary Tyler Moore. Harper won three Primetime Emmy Awards for her performance, and went on to reprise the cherished role in the spinoff series “Rhoda,” for which she also earned an Emmy, in 1975.

Online tributes have been pouring in for the late actress, who graced the big screen in such films as “Freebie and the Bean” (1974) and “Chapter Two” (1979), and earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in a Play for her turn as actress Tallulah Bankhead in “Looped.”

Valerie Harper Dies: Beloved Star Of TV’s ‘Mary Tyler Moore’ And ‘Rhoda’ Was 80
Valerie Harper, the multiple-Emmy-winning sitcom star whose role as the somewhat neurotic Rhoda Morgenstern made her one of television’s biggest and most beloved actors in the 1970s, died today. She was 80 and had been suffering from various cancers for a number of years.

Her family told Kabc-tv entertainment reporter George Pennacchio that Harper had been in a coma for a while before succumbing,

The veteran TV and stage actress was best known for playing sidekick Rhoda Morgenstern on CBS The Mary Tyler Moore Show, then taking the character into her own popular spinoff, Rhoda.

She also starred in the 1980s sitcom, Valerie, which — thanks to some head-butting over creative control with the show producers – saw Harper’s character killed off as an explanation for her exiting the show. It then morphed into Valerie’s Family and later was retitled The Hogan Family.

Harper also had recurring roles on The Office and The Simpsons.
