Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Moviegoers were in a horror mood -- what else is new?-- which is appropriate for Halloween time.Three of the top five were specifically seasonal while It logged what is probably it's last week in the top ten with another 2 million for its historical box office winnings.It's the highest grossing horror film ever now but only #4 of all time (not adjusted for inflation) in terms of R-rated films.It won't be able to overtake any of the top three:The Passion of the Christ,Deadpool,andAmerican Snipersince it will surely lose a huge swath of theaters next weekend when everything at the multiplexes has to make room forThor: Ragnarok...

= new or significant expansion

numbers (in millions unless otherwise noted) frombox office mojo

It was a rough weekend for awards hopefuls that weren't namedVictoria & Abdul.Dame Dench's new vehicle moved into the top ten in its fourth weekend when it finally went wide.Other movies seeking adult audiences had a rougher go of it.The biopicsMarshallandProfessor Marston & The Wonder Womenboth opened outside of the top ten despite plentiful screens.(I took inProfessor Marstonand though it's a niche subject,it's surprisingly good with yet another excellent performance from the ever reliable Rebecca Hall.) More biographical awards hopefulsGoodbye Christopher RobinandBreathealso failed to attract much interest in their platform debuts.It's a tough world out there for non-genre titles that would like adults to go to the movies again!

The weekend's best per screen averages went to the documentaryHuman Flowand A24'sThe Florida Projectwhich added 29 screens in its second weekend.WHAT DID YOU SEE THIS WEEKEND?

Andy Serkis's Directorial Debut Arrives This Year

Chrishere.WithWar for the Planet of the Apesarriving in theatres next weekend,we're already seeing the reawakened thinkpieces about an honorary Oscar for Andy Serkis that comes with what seems every motion capture performance from the actor.But now we can add another level to his multi-hyphenate talent as the risk-taker is now taking up the directing reigns with this fall'sBreathe.

The true story tragic romance stars recent Oscar nominee Andrew Garfield as the polio-stricken Robin Cavendish,withThe Crown's Claire Foy as his wife Diana.This is technically Serkis's second directorial effort,with his take onThe Jungle Bookfilmed prior and now in CGI-heavy post-production.Jungleis maybe a more expected journey for the motion capture virtuoso,soBreathemakes a somewhat more intriguing choice despite it's quite familiar plot.Perhaps it's the film's spirit of innovation that calls to him,as Cavendish helped create a wheelchair equipped with a respirator.

Breathe will open the London Film Festival and open stateside on October 13.Take a look at the trailer andtell us your thoughts in the comments!
