Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Split’ Is M. Night Shyamalan’s Biggest Opener in Years

Is it safe to say that M. Night Shyamalan is back? He got his foot in the door a few years ago when The Visit opened to $25 million and went on to make $65 million against a budget of only $5 million, but with the release of Split, he’s officially sitting on the couch, eating your chips and drinking your beer. However, the same could not be said for xXx: Return of Xander Cage, which opened to more lackluster numbers.

Hackers Shut Down the Sundance Film Festival Box Office

Cyberattacks  —  or, as newly elected President Trump would say, “the Cyber”  —  are an increasingly common part of the world we live in. With most private information and secure data now available online, one tech-savvy computer user can do more damage to an institution than hundreds of lawyers or corporate spies. And while we might think of cyberattacks as being reserved for the Big Evil Corporations of the world, it turns out that not even film festivals are immune from being targeted.

Hugh Jackman Explains the ‘Slightly Different Universe’ of ‘Logan’

How about that last Logan trailer, huh? While the first trailer will probably be remembered as the one that got everyone excited for a mature Wolverine movie, the second trailer  —  even without the Johnny Cash music playing in the background  —  is the one that really sets the hook. What was hinted at in the first go-around now feels lived in and personal; Hugh Jackman’s Logan has never seemed more tired, and Dafne Keen’s X-23 has never seemed more dangerous.

Watch Emily Browning Sing ‘New York Groove’ in the ‘Golden Exits’ Teaser

While countless people descend on Park City to watch the best and brightest of independent film, things aren’t all bad out here on the sidelines. True, the people in Utah may get to gorge themselves on brand new films, but the Sundance Film Festival also means a deluge of new reviews, interviews, release dates, and, yes, trailers for those of us who couldn’t make it. Which means you can read about the buzz for a movie like Golden Exits and find yourself with a new trailer to watch almost simultaneously.

Shia LaBeouf Unveils Four-Year Trump Protest Performance Art, ‘He Will Not Divide Us’

Donald Trump is the President of the United States now. Wily performance-art prankster Shia LaBeouf does not intend on taking that sitting down. The daring mind behind #ALLMYMOVIES (that time the Beef watched every single one of his movies back-to-back in reverse order at New York’s Angelika Film Center) and I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE (that other time when he put a paper bag over his head before walking the red carpet at the Berlinale) has unveiled his latest work of highly conceptual living art. And if you live in the New York metropolitan area and are willing to go to Queens, you could be part of it.

Will Forte and Ellen Page Lend Their Voices to ‘My Life As a Zucchini’ Trailer

Foreign films have historically done pretty well in the Best Animated Feature category at the Academy Awards, with at least one import usually squeezing into the nominations alongside the latest pictures from Disney or Pixar. Last year included Brazil’s Boy and the World as well as Japan’s When Marnie Was There, and while the likes of Kubo and the Two Strings, Moana, Finding Dory and Zootopia have all but sewn up their nominations for the 2017 ceremony (check back on the 24th to find out!), that leaves room for one wild card. It could be The Red Turtle, the latest animated film with a Studio Ghibli pedigree, or it could be a poignant and sweet little Swiss picture My Life as a Zucchini.

A24 Donates to Planned Parenthood on Behalf of ‘20th Century Women’ Viewers

Due to what I am choosing to diplomatically refer to as “recent political shake-ups,” the future of women’s health center Planned Parenthood looks dark and uncertain. New bills have placed their all-important federal funding in jeopardy, and not the fun kind, where you get to show off how many river names you remember from middle school. In addition to making it more difficult to procure safe abortions, the proposed changes would threaten the availability of birth control and the various medical services that Planned Parenthood offers. If they hope to survive in the years to come, they’ll need grassroots support, and today brings the new that they’ll get a helping hand from the good folks at A24.

Anne Hathaway May Get ‘Nasty’ with Rebel Wilson in ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ Remake

The 1988 caper comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a cracking good time, pairing Steve Martin and Michael Caine as a pair of no-good con men fleecing rich old ladies on the shores of the French Riviera. The mismatched duo — Caine’s the image of suave refinement, Martin’s an inveterate ham — team for one big score, but a mysterious rival con artist known as “The Jackal” complicates matters. Also a good time: the Broadway musical based on the film, the 1964 Marlon Brando picture Bedtime Story that inspired Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and now we can add to that list Nasty Women.

Celine Dion Will Sing an Original Song for Disney’s Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’

If anything, the live-action Beauty and the Beast will give us all the urge to curl up with some nice, cozy nostalgia for a few hours. With its faithful-to-the-cartoon costumes and songs, it’ll be like a leveled-up version of the classic, and today Disney has doubled-down on the nostalgia factor: Celine Dion, who recorded her own version of the title tune “Beauty and the Beast” for the original movie, is returning to the story with a new original song “How Does a Moment Last Forever.”
