Are We the Only Ones Who Had No Idea Just How Much Jessica Alba Is Worth?

  • Popsugar
Not only is Jessica Alba smoking hot - she's also got way more moola than we bet you realized. Somewhere north of $340 million, as of 2016, to be exact.

Though she made her onscreen debut at the age of 13, acting isn't the only way that Jessica pays the bills, because she owns a superlucrative business with Christopher Gavigan as well - talk about some serious hustle! But how did all her money come together? Let's break it down.

First, let's discuss her acting career: Jessica made her movie debut with Camp Nowhere in 1994, which led to her scoring a recurring role in The Secret World of Alex Mack

Who Are the Worst Reviewed Actors and Actresses of the Past 20 Years?

Who Are the Worst Reviewed Actors and Actresses of the Past 20 Years?
A new study has determined that Jessica Alba and Mike Epps are the worst reviewed actors of the last 20 years. The study was conducted by Go Compare who attempted to determine which actors and actresses in movies had the worst track records based on reviews. This was done based on looking at the average Metacritic score for all of the movies the respective stars appeared in over the last two decades. The results are, in some ways, surprising.

Starting with the actresses, Jessica Alba, who had an average Metacritic score of 39 out of 100 for her movies, came out on top. Or at the bottom, depending on how one looks at it. Alba has been in a ton of poorly reviewed movies, from her pair of Fantastic Four movies, to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and, more recently, Mechanic: Resurrection alongside Jason Statham. That really just scratches the surface,

‘Hunter Killer’ Surfaces From Thursday Box Office With $420,000

  • The Wrap
Lionsgate’s submarine movie “Hunter Killer,” which is being released through its Summit Entertainment label, earned $420,000 in Thursday previews from 2,200 screens. It will open on 2,728 screens this weekend.

The Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman-led thriller face off against “Halloween” as it moves into its second weekend, which should dominate through Oct. 31. “Hunter Killer” is projected for a $6-8 million opening behind a 38 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Comparisons aren’t easy for “Hunter Killer” considering that it’s going up against “Halloween.” But Gerard Butler’s “Geostorm,” which opened this time last year and skipped Thursday previews, ended up earning only $13.7 million in its opening weekend against a $120 million budget. Butler’s “Den of Thieves” opened in January of this year and took in $950,000 in previews leading up to a $15 million open.

The Meg takes giant bite of UK box office

Jason Statham’s prehistoric shark makes waves with summer cinemagoers, while Mamma Mia! 2 is still packing them in

While Jason Statham has been seen on screen in recent years in Fast and Furious and Expendables movies, and had a supporting role in Melissa McCarthy comedy Spy, his own movie vehicles had begun to dwindle in number and impact. His last outing as a protagonist was 2016’s Mechanic: Resurrection, which grossed £1.37m in total in UK cinemas. Before that, 2015’s Wild Card managed just £410,000. Was it now game over for Statham as a leading male action star, some were beginning to wonder?

You might walk down a street and brush shoulders with a stranger and exchange a polite smile, completely unaware that stranger is picturing themselves stood above your bleeding body as you draw your final breath.

Thailand’s 20% Rebate Makes Country Even More Attractive for Filmmakers

Thailand’s 20% Rebate Makes Country Even More Attractive for Filmmakers
Producers looking for different kinds of locales for their next projects are turning increasingly to Thailand, which recently launched a 20% rebate on qualified spend.

Indeed, the Southeast Asian country is a land of captivating beauty and exotic locations that filmmakers can use to add production value to their shoots. It’s also a country narrow and dicey alleyways, street food vendors and crowded marketplaces that can deliver a message of menacing grittiness – making it an ideal destination for noir-like stories and steamy situations.

The introduction of the new program has only increased the country’s attractiveness.

Specifically, Thailand’s rebate on qualified spend ranges from 15% to 20%. It can include a 3% bonus for the hire of Thai personnel in key positions, and a 2% bonus if the project in question also promotes Thai tourism.

To qualify, projects must spend a minimum of 50 million baht on local goods and services, which amounts to about $1.56 million.

  • Deadline
As studios vie for a chunk of an increasingly globalized business, the importance of local-language films that reflect homegrown audiences has been among key talking points for exhibitors and studios here at the CineEurope conference in Barcelona this week. Local films simply help all boats to rise. It’s notably on folks minds amid a box office downturn in some European majors, particularly Germany where underperforming local titles have contributed to a sizable drop in the first part of the year.

Tim Richards, chief of Vue International which operates in major European markets, including Germany and Italy (as well as Taiwan), tells me a local hit “turns a good year into a great year.”

Fox’s President of International Theatrical Distribution Andrew Cripps confirms the importance of local which “brings an audience to movies that don’t normally go, then they see trailers and marketing materials” which have the effect

CBS debuted a full trailer for Star Trek: Discovery today, showing off a clip stuffed with plenty of Federation action, spaceships, and a ton of new characters, in a story set a decade before Captain Kirk and Spock ventured out in the Enterprise.

The trailer opens with Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou and Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham walking across a desert planet.
