'Avengers: Endgame' Readies for Second Weekend Dominance

'Avengers: Endgame' Readies for Second Weekend Dominance
Records continue to fall as Disney's Avengers: Endgame makes ready for its sophomore frame. After having already topped $452 million domestically (#17 all-time) and $1.664 billion worldwide (#6 all-time), the film enters its second weekend looking to top Star Wars: The Force Awakens's $149.2 million second weekend and add that record to its list of achievements. Beyond that, the film will top $600 million domestically this weekend and has a shot at outperforming 2012's The Avengers, which brought in $623.4 million after 154 days in release — Endgame is looking to do push past that number in just ten. As already mentioned, Star Wars: The Force Awakens currently holds the record for the largest second weekend of all-time with $149.2 million. While Avengers: Endgame destroyed Force Awakens's opening weekend by more than $100 million, Force Awakens dipped just -40% in its sophomore frame.

‘The Intruder’ Film Review: Dennis Quaid Stalks Homeowners in Dopey Thriller

  • The Wrap
‘The Intruder’ Film Review: Dennis Quaid Stalks Homeowners in Dopey Thriller
Home invasion thrillers have given us plenty of maniacal villains hellbent on terrorizing helpless residents of cavernous houses. Whether they’re driven by dementia or greed (or both), these villains pillage, plunder, and leave the scene a bloodbath.

Rarely are they provoked by a former homeowner’s mundane desire to still occupy the residence, as it is for Dennis Quaid’s vein-popping Charlie Peck in director Deon Taylor’s “The Intruder.”

In director Jung Huh’s 2013 film, “Hide and Seek,” the unhinged former renter (Mi-seon Jeon) is at least driven to madness due to a visceral combination of grief and poverty. But Charlie is nothing more than a man who’s mad that he lost his money after a few bad business deals and had to give up his gigantic Napa Valley home to a successful young married couple: Annie and Scott Russell. Charlie gets a huge windfall after they buy his home,

The Intruder review – Dennis Quaid goes gonzo in fun, silly thriller

A couple find themselves the target of a madman in a familiar retread of early 90s psycho-from-hell thrillers that squeezes enjoyment from tired cliches

After its peak in the early 90s, the psycho-from-hell thriller, typified by films such as Fatal Attraction, Single White Female and Pacific Heights, died a villain’s death at the box office, only rearing its head infrequently in the years since. In the late 00s, Sony’s genre label Screen Gems spotted a gap in the market and started pumping out variations on a cookie-cutter formula but with one key difference. Films such as Obsessed, No Good Deed, The Perfect Guy and When the Bough Breaks have been almost universally populated by actors of colour in strict opposition to the all-white thrillers that came before them.

Win Free Passes To The St. Louis Advance Screening Of Little

Girls Trip’s Regina Hall and Black-ish’s Marsai Martin both star as Jordan Sanders — Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation.

Insecure’s Issa Rae plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April, the only one in on the secret that her daily tormentor is now trapped in an awkward tween body just as everything is on the line. Little is an irreverent new comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up — and glow up — right.

Will Packer, blockbuster producer of Girls Trip, the Ride Along franchise, and ten movies that have opened No. 1 at the U.S. box office, including Night School, No Good Deed and Think Like a Man, brings an all-new perspective to the body-swap comedy.

Daredevil Season 3 Episode 3 Review – ‘No Good Deed’

Martin Carr reviews the third episode of Daredevil season 3…

No Good Deed’ deals out karmic retribution against a man in denial. Someone with a sense that right and wrong play no part in administering justice, combating crime or taking criminals off the street. We get ring side seats to the disintegration of Matt Murdock through unique external monologue, orchestrated two handers and subtle psychological imbalance. Something not only driven by past transgressions, regrets and bad choices, but featuring Wilson Fisk front and centre.

What starts out as a simple yet tense transfer of Fisk to secure facilities segues into something else entirely. An infiltration of multi-million pound penthouses couple with Murdock’s three hundred pound conscience, giving voice to fears which manifest themselves in a twisted vision mocking him in soft focus. A constant questioning of his self-worth plays out in background conversations which add another dimension to the uncertain dynamic.

How ‘Night School’s Will Packer Became The Rare Producer To Open 10 Films Atop The Weekend Gross Charts

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Universal Pictures has just closed a deal to acquire Beast, an action-thriller for Will Packer to produce. The logline is being kept under wraps, but the film will show what happens when man is forced to go head-to-head with a beast. The pitch comes from Jamie Primak-Sullivan, and it will be scripted by Ryan Engle. They served the same roles in the Packer-produced Breaking In, and Engle separately scripted Rampage. Packer will produce through his Will Packer Productions banner alongside partner James Lopez and Primak-Sullivan will executive produce. Engel is repped by CAA and Mosaic.

Others included the Ride Along and Think Like A Man films,

Exclusive Interview – Mark “Rhino” Smith talks Idris Elba’s Yardie and the relationship between bodybuilding and acting

Red Stewart chats with Mark “Rhino” Smith…

Mark “Rhino” Smith is an English bodybuilder turned actor who has been working in the television and film industries since the late-90s. He is best known for his roles in Gladiators, Renford Rejects, and The Last Ship. His latest work was for the upcoming British crime drama movie Yardie, which was helmed by Idris Elba in his directorial debut.

Flickering Myth had the privilege to interview him, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it:

I’ve noticed a lot of bodybuilders over the decades have transitioned into the film industry, from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Lou Ferrigno to David Prowse. Is there something about the craft that makes acting a natural development in your career, or is it simply a case of having the right height/weight for the role, as I recall Liam Neeson saying in an interview with Peter Travers?

‘Breaking In’ Signals the Rise of Gabrielle Union as a Box Office Star

‘Breaking In’ Signals the Rise of Gabrielle Union as a Box Office Star
While “Avengers: Infinity War” left box office beancounters’ jaws on the floor with its huge Chinese launch last weekend, Gabrielle Union was quietly making her first steps on her path to becoming the next big box office star with her latest film, “Breaking In.”

Made on a thrifty $6 million budget, “Breaking In” stars Union as a mother forced to break out the shotguns after thieves invade her late father’s mansion and hold her children hostage in an attempt to access the house’s vault.

Though critics panned it, the film made $17.5 million from 2,537 screens this past weekend. By comparison, this past weekend’s other new release, Melissa McCarthy’s “Life of the Party,” needed over 1,100 more screens to open to $17.8 million, giving “Breaking In” the higher per screen average at just under $7,000 per screen.
