"Almost There"Marion Cotillard inRust & Bone

"She was incredible in this—but she usual is.The snub hurt at the time but considering she already has an Oscar and wound up swooping in a few years later as a dark horse nominee...makes it feel ok in the end." -Philip

"Best actress of the decade."- Peggy Sue

票房: My "Secretary" Diana and My Cousin Rachel

By Nathaniel R

Universal's attempted monster movie franchise launch didn't go so well.The Mummymet scathing reviews and a disappointing opening weekend.Now, a $32 million launch would be major news for many films but not for a $125 million budgeted feature starring Tom Cruise that is intending to launch a whole "universe".Not everything can be Marvel's Cinematic Universe, Hollywood!

In the absence of a strong competitor and on terrific word of mouth (no small thing),Wonder Womancontinued her reign at the box office.Given a relatively small second week drop (43% while DC's usual superhero sophomore frame drop is 67%) the Amazon princess is looking to join the $300 million club stateside which will put her right up there with Supes and Batman.DC's "Big Three" indeed.

A (#) after a title is either an attempted franchise launch or a sequel

In quite a lot of theaters, if not quite wide, Rachel Weisz seduced asMy Cousin Rachel.The per screen average wasn't so strong but a $1 million launch for a period drama without bankable stars is nothing to poison your team over!

The debuting Salma Hayek featureBeatriz at Dinnerhad the weekend's highest per screen average ($150,000 from just 5 theaters).MeanwhileParis Can Waitpassed the two million mark in its fifth week despite middling reviews proving an appetite for both Diane Lane (who really deserves high profile pictures and so seldom gets them) and adult romances.In other news worth noting, Mexico's 3Idiotasand Israel'sThe Wedding Planboth passed the difficult $1 million hurdle for subtitled features.Congrats!

What did you see this weekend?

Didn't get to the movies but finished the first season of I Love Dick.Kathryn Hahn is just the best and she is so genius in this.I know the TV landscape is overwhelming right now but I really, really, hope she snags an Emmy nom.

The whole show is just fantastic, too.So much defiant female sexuality, female gaze, interesting characters, artistic surprises and laugh-out-loud humor.

The Mummy might yet be rescued by its overseas box office, but we'll have to see what happens in the coming weeks.

June 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCharlie

The Mummy didn't even earn as much as the Brendan Fraser version in its opening weekend.Ouch.

June 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDJDeeJay

Considering I spent the week watching live theatre at the Stratford Festival, and French Open tennis, Kevin Spacey performing his live show at the Arthur Ashe tennis stadium fits right into my mood.How I'd love to see that.

Time for Tom to hang up his Underoos.At 55, no one is buying the boyish routine.With prints and advertising included, The Mummy cost upwards of $350 million.Giant misstep for Universal

DJDeeJay: The Tom Cruise Mummy didn't earn as much as the THIRD Brendan Fraser Mummy did in its opening weekend.It didn't even earn as much as The Scorpion King spin-off!

I did a double feature of Riley Keough films.First, It Comes At Night which I thought was fantastic and I ended up getting bullied on Twitter for saying it was fantastic.

I also saw Lovesong which was very good.Very short yet bittersweet love story with great acting from Jena Malone and especially Riley Keough who deserves the best performance by a lead actress so far this year.

Saw MEGAN LEAVEY this weekend.Predictable but accomplished what it was designed to do, namely, hit the audience in the feels.Despite being reduced to a teary mess, I appreciated that it was less manipulative than it could have been, and didn't shy away from Megan's pricklier qualities.

Glad WONDER WOMAN is holding strong!

I finally saw the new Alien movie.我很满意我的经验,我希望其他e was more character development as when each person was dispatched I went 'oh wait which tough chick was that?' or 'hold on a second we're about to get a character arc, no wait nevermind.' i was really looking forward to having a badass gay couple on the covenant as well, but it was only sort of hinted after (SPOILER.......) the first of them was dispatched (END SPOILERINO).MIssed opportunity for me-- they didn't even have to make out or hold each other, but calling one another 'man' while things were happening was almost insulting.One small step at least.

The trailers gave too much away.The cast was great tho and the cinematography was beautiful.Aside from character development, it was a pretty fun movie!

I finally saw I, Daniel Blake.It's Palme d'Or win is embarrassing.

No movies but I finished Homeland Season 6.Kudos to Claire Danes, Rupert Friend, Mandy Patinkin and F.Murray Abraham.All great actors and the show was very thrilling and engrossing.

Attended the FilmOut San Diego LGBT Film Festival this weekend, so I saw a bunch of films like "The Lavender Scare" "The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin" "Something Like Summer" and lots of short films.Favorite films (feature & short) had to be "Handsome Devil" (loved Andrew Scott in this), "A Million Happy Nows" (which reminded me a bit of Julianne Moore's "Still Alice") and "Tonight It's You" (terrific horror short).

Why does Hollywood think audiences want non scary Monster films,I blame the superheroes,count me out but in for a world where Todd Haynes women all meet Carol Aird meeting Carol White that would be wonderful.

Universal was not selling "The Mummy" as a Tom Cruise movie- it was only recently that his sad looking image was plastered on the poster.If you are going to launch a franchise the mummy is not the best choice- Frakenstein or Dracula would be a better choice.

June 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

Jaragon, Universal tried with Dracula Untold a few years back.It supposedly was the first movie of their monster universe.And it flopped.

June 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPedro

The Mummy is earning big bucks overseas.It's not just about the US anymore.

June 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterheikoS

Watched My Cousin Rachel - wasn't the biggest fan, but as always Rachel Weisz is fantastic in it.

June 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRod

"Dracula Untold" was stupid- they tried to turn Dracula who is pure evil not just into a good guy but at the end into some sort of James Bond vampire-these characters are classic for a reason- these new improvement do nothing interesting with their mythology

June 12, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterjaragon

But don't they only get 25 cents from a dollar (at most) from overseas?Still a steep climb for The Mummy to break even, and even foreign audiences will reject a bad film.Don't insult their intelligence.

June 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMads

I finally caught up with The Edge of Seventeen, and had to watch it twice.Hailee Steinfeld was captivating and hilarious.
