Film to Earn $108 Million in Second Weekend – Variety – Sharing Variety Magazine


Disney-Marvel’s “Black Panther”is dominating the box office with an astounding $108 million at 4,020 North American locations — the second-highest second weekend ever behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Black Panther,” starring Chadwick Boseman, has now grossed $400 million domestically in its first 10 days. Only “The Force Awakens” has reached that milestone faster. It’s also grossed $304 million internationally.

The superhero film, the 18th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, declined only 46% from its opening Friday-Sunday — underlining the film’s massive appeal among moviegoers. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” set the second weekend record with $149 million in 2015, and “Black Panther” topped the second weekends of 2015’s “Jurassic World” at $106.6 million, and 2012’s “The Avengers” with $103 million.

Black Panther,” directed by Ryan Coogler, has caught on with moviegoers this month in a way that few other titles have in Hollywood’s recent history — blowing past last month’s tracking that showed it would open in the $100 million to $120 million range. It’s notched an A+ Cinemascore — becoming only the second Marvel film to do so — and has dazzled critics with a 97% “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes. The film also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya and Letitia Wright.

ComScore’s PostTrack scores of the audience for the second  weekend show support among moviegoers far above average with 69% rating the film as “excellent” and another 23% as “very good.”

Warner Bros.-New Line’s opening of R-rated “Game Night,” starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, finished a distant second with $16.6 million from 3,488 locations. The film is directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, and follows Bateman and McAdams as couple whose regular game night suddenly turns into a murder mystery. Critics have given “Game Night” strong support, helping draw an 82% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Guillermo del Toro To Open Cinema Named After Him At Guadalajara Fest – Variety – Sharing Variety Magazine


Multi Oscar-nominated Guillermo del Toro is slated to open a new cinema named after him in Guadalajara, his hometown, on March 10, in an event which is likely to prove one of the festival’s highlights.

“Hopefully, he’ll have a few Oscars in tow,” said Guadalajara Film Festival director Ivan Trujillo.

The new cinema is one of several that the city is building to improve the festival’s offer. Del Toro’s acclaimed fable “The Shape of Water” has received 13 Oscar nominations, including best director and best picture. The 90th Academy Awards ceremony is slated for Sunday, March 4th.

At least five emerging Mexican filmmakers out of 11 contenders are vying for the Premio Mezcal cash prize of $27,000 (500,000 pesos) for best Mexican fiction film and an audience award of some $5,000 (100,000 pesos).

Leading the pack of titles is Sebastian Hofmann and his sophomore feature “Time Share,” which premiered at Sundance, winning the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Prize for Screenwriting.

Hailed by Variety as a “puzzle piece that cleverly probes patriarchal insecurity and corporate invasiveness through the course of one botched family vacation,” “Time Share” is co-penned and produced by Hofmann’s partner Julio Chavezmontes at Mexico City-based shingle Piano.

Ehecatl García’s feature debut, “Cría Puercos,” inspired by his own mother’s experience, turns on a woman – depressed after the demise of her spouse and by the neglect of her son – who finds new impetus in life when she acquires a pet pig.

Actor Ianis Alexis Guerrero (“Nosotros los Nobles,” “Club of Crows”), who has directed shorts and commercials, makes his directorial feature debut with road movie “Juan and Vanessa” about a truck driver trying to mend his ways and a wayward teen who hitches a ride with him.

Alejandro Andrade’s feature debut “Cuernavaca” stars former Almodovar muse Carmen Maura who plays the stern grandmother of a young boy whose mother is gravely injured in an accident. As his mother fights for her life, he faces the rejection of his grandmother and seeks out his father.

Cross-border drama “Mente Revolver” is Alejandro “Jano” Ramirez’s feature debut, produced by his Alma Mater, UNAM, which turns on three characters whose lives intersect over a gun.

Meanwhile, influential vet filmmaker Ignacio Ortiz, who has won multiple Ariel awards – Mexico’s Oscars – for past films “Mezcal” and “Bedtime Fairy Tales for Crocodiles,” returns with father-daughter drama, “Betrayal.”

“Out of the 170 Mexican films produced in the last year, 65 films were presented to us for consideration,” said Trujillo., who’s pleased at the diversity of genres in the selection.

In contrast to the Premio Mezcal’s fiction section, which has only one femme-directed entry, six out of nine Mexican docs vying for the Premio Mezcal are by women this year.

Among the non-fiction standouts in contention are Arturo Diaz Santana’s “Rita, the Documentary,” about iconic Mexican ‘90s music, theatre artist and activist Rita Guerrero, who died at the age of 46 from cancer.

Produced by Bertha Navarro and Del Toro, “Ayotzinapa, el Paso de la Tortuga” by Enrique García Meza delves into the mystery behind one of Mexico’s most tragic and still unsolved crimes: the disappearance of 43 students from a local teaching college.

The 33rd Guadalajara Int’l Film Festival runs from March 9 to 16.

‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ & More – Variety – Sharing Variety Magazine


Christopher Nolan’s World War II thriller “Dunkirk” walked away with top honors for sound mixing from the 54th annual Cinema Audio Society Saturday night, hosted by “The Daily Show” correspondent Michael Kosta.

The film, which received eight Oscar nominations including best sound editing and best sound mixing, previously received the British Academy’s sound prize and an award from the Motion Picture Sound Editors organization.

“The greatest recognition you could get is recognition from your peers,” “Dunkirk” production mixer Mark Weingarten said during his acceptance speech, with the crew also giving a shout out to composer Hans Zimmer.

Filling out the film fields, Pixar’s “Coco” won for animated feature while Brett Morgen’s Jane Goodall portrait “Jane” won in the documentary category. This year’s other Oscar nominees for both sound editing and sound mixing are “Baby Driver,” “Blade Runner 2049,” “The Shape of Water,” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

When the winners started to give lengthy acceptance speeches, Kosta joked, “we only have this room until noon tomorrow.”

On the television side at the CAS Awards, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” won its fifth-straight CAS prize in the one-hour series category, while Netflix’s “Black Mirror” won in the TV movie/miniseries field.

HBO’s “Silicon Valley” usurped longtime champ “Modern Family” in the half-hour series category, while “Rolling Stone: Stories from the Edge” took the non-fiction/variety/music series award.

“Darkest Hour” director Joe Wright received the organization’s Filmmaker Award, presented by sound engineer Craig Berkey after Gary Oldman, who was scheduled to give the award, came down the flu and sent Berkey to read his speech. Edgar Wright also spoke about Wright, joking that CAS must have thought he was either Wright’s “twin brother or at the very least, one of his emergency contacts.”

“You’re about to be hit with all the pent up sentimentality of all the speeches I haven’t given this season,” Wright said in his speech, referencing “Darkest Hour’s” lack of award circuit wins. He spoke on gaining his childhood love of sound and music from his father, who was a puppeteer, and in terms of his own career, said, “occasionally a well-meaning film-goer will tell me my films are like paintings. Although externally I try to remain polite, internally I am very offended. A film must be conceived and realized as sound and image relating to one another in the wonder of time.”

Last year’s CAS winners included “La La Land,” “Game of Thrones” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”
