Box Office: ‘Call of the Wild’ Fetches $1 Million on Thursday Night
Harrison Ford’s “The Call of the Wild” opened with $1 million in Thursday night previews.

Stx’s supernatural horror sequel “Brahms: The Boy II,” meanwhile, earned $375,000 at 1,800 screens from Thursday previews.

The earnings for Disney-20th Century’s “The Call of the Wild” is in the same vicinity as “The Upside,” which took in $1.1 million from previews and wound up with a $20 million opening weekend last year. “The Call of the Wild” is expected to finish the fame with $10 million to $18 million at 3,752 venues in North America, leaving the canine adventure film far behind “Sonic the Hedgehog,” which has grossed $77 million domestically in its first six days.

Ford stars in the PG-rated adventure about a dog named Buck — a CGI-created Saint Bernard-Scotch Collie mix — in an adaptation of Jack London’s 1903 novel. Set during Alaska’s Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890s, the film follows Buck, who’s stolen from

15 Highest-Grossing American Remakes of Foreign Films, From ‘Godzilla’ to ‘The Departed’ (Photos)

15 Highest-Grossing American Remakes of Foreign Films, From ‘Godzilla’ to ‘The Departed’ (Photos)
The Swedish film “Force Majeure” was a critically acclaimed darling but not exactly a box office hit. So there was an opportunity to take the film’s black humor and install the American charms of Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell to see how it might fare commercially in “Downhill,” opening this weekend. But surprisingly, even box office hits abroad don’t always translate when remade with American actors, and the ones that do rarely resemble their original inspiration. Here are the highest-grossing American remakes of foreign films (all domestic box office figures via Box Office Mojo).

Godzilla” (2014) – $200.6 Million

Japan, “Godzilla” (1954)

Godzilla” has had so many remakes and sequels over the years, but Gareth Edwards’ film gets closer to the melancholy of Ishiro Honda’s original monster movie than ever before.

Which is Better? #6 – Netflix vs. Amazon Prime Video

  • Nerdly
Welcome back to another edition of “Which is Better” here on Nerdly. I tend to, in past articles focus on specific movies or series’ or television shows, but I thought, for the pure hell of it, to pit two big streaming services against each other and decide which is the better of the two.

Now, streaming has become a huge deal. Everyone and their grandmother has some sort of media streaming in their home, be it Spotify for their music needs, Game Pass or Ps Now for their video game desires, or the aforementioned Netflix or Amazon Prime Video for their film and television binging. Some of us nerds even have all of the above, but the less said about us the better.

Netflix is the big-boy in town and has the largest subscriber base of any media streaming service going, with over 167 million paying customers worldwide and growing. When

‘Downhill’ Review: Remake Buries the Original’s Edgy Appeal

‘Downhill’ Review: Remake Buries the Original’s Edgy Appeal
Hollywood knockoffs of foreign-language films almost never work. Remember the recent Miss Bala (based on Mexico’s 2012 Oscars submission of the same name) and The Upside (the Kevin Hart/Bryan Cranston version of the 2011 French hit The Intouchables)? Downhill, an Americanized remake of 2014’s brilliant Force Majeure, turns Swedish director Ruben ?stlund’s black-comic provocation into a bland muddle. ?stlund’s prickly moral fable felt like if Ingmar Bergman directed a National Lampoon’s Ski Vacation. The dreary and disconcertingly unfunny Downhill . The rich possibilities in the casting of Will Ferrell

Jussie Smollett’s Lawyer Claims New Indictment Over Alleged Chicago Assault “Is Clearly All About Politics”
Just hours after Jussie Smollett was indicted on new charges related to the alleged January 29, 2019 early morning attack on the streets of Chicago, the former Empire actor’s lawyer lashed out at the Special Prosecutor and the Windy City’s cops for angling for political leverage.

“After more than five months of investigation, the Office of the Special Prosecutor has not found any evidence of wrongdoing whatsoever related to the dismissal of the charges against Mr. Smollett,” said Tina Glandian today as her client is headed back to court on February 24 to face six counts of disorderly conduct from a grand jury. “Rather, the charges were appropriately dismissed the first time because they were not supported by the evidence,” the attorney added as her client could be looking at renewed jail time if found guilty.

Annabella Sciorra Ex-Friend Suggests Actress Altered Rape Story; Prosecution Says Friend Received $60K From Weinstein For Month’s Work On ‘The Upside’

  • Deadline
Paul Feldsher, a former film producer, Miramax consultant and longtime friend at various points to both Annabella Sciorra and Harvey Weinstein, testified under subpoena in Weinstein’s rape trial Thursday that Sciorra drank alcohol and used prescription sedatives well before what he says the actress once referred to as merely a “crazy” sexual encounter with Weinstein.

Called to testify by Weinstein’s defense in an apparent attempt to discredit the actress’ previous testimony that her drinking and drug problems started after she was raped by Weinstein, Feldsher, a former ICM agent, presented a fairly unflattering depiction of the woman he once considered a very close friend.

Although acknowledging that he and Sciorra haven’t been in touch for seven years, Feldsher said he still cares about the actress and considers her a friend, then said that Sciorra used to joke about taking sedatives and that she’d once described the

Producer Friend of Harvey Weinstein Testifies He Was a Sex Addict
Harvey Weinstein’s defense team kicked off their case Thursday afternoon, calling a former friend of Annabella Sciorra’s to undermine her allegation that the producer raped her in the early 1990s.

Paul Feldsher, a former ICM agent and producer of several Miramax films, said that Sciorra was one of his closest friends for several years. He testified that they once took a long walk, during which she admitted having done “this crazy thing” with Weinstein.

“My understanding was that she fooled around with him,” Feldsher said. “I don’t recall it being stressful.”

Feldsher worked as a producer or executive producer on five Miramax films in the late 1990s and early 2000s, including “The Four Feathers” and “Get Over It.” He also acknowledged that the Weinstein Co. had paid him $60,000 for work he had done in 2016 or 2017 as a consulting producer on “The Upside.”

Harvey Weinstein Rape Trial “Disgusts” Sundance As Festival Attendees Follow NYC Courtroom Drama
Harvey Weinstein isn’t anywhere near the Sundance Film Festival this year, but the now-disgraced producer’s ongoing criminal trial for rape in New York is front of mind for many at the gathering he dominated for years.

“I was at screenings he was at here, I was at parties he was at here, I worked on movies that he snapped up here, and I knew something wasn’t right with the guy,” a prominent producer told me of Weinstein’s reign of terror in the indie film world, as Project Runway Pa Mimi Haleyi testified today in Manhattan about Weinstein’s alleged assaults against her

“But what we know now of the attacks and the threats and what we are seeing at the trial is sickening and something else,” the female producer added Monday outside the coffee joint on Park City’s chilly Main Street, as Sundance patrons headed off to morning screenings,

Weekend Box Office: Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Gentlemen’ Beats Latest Horror Dud

Weekend Box Office: Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Gentlemen’ Beats Latest Horror Dud
The 2020 box office keeps chugging along with positive results, despite a lackluster $120 million box office total for this weekend, which will likely place in the bottom third for this year’s results. But there’s continued evidence of real strength in the market.

Grosses were up about around 16% from the same weekend last year, typically a dead zone between a big-release holiday weekend and the Super Bowl, when studios don’t want their top films facing that on their second weekend. If box office stays on track, the market could sustain the promise of a better than expected year.

Wide openers “The Gentlemen” (Stx) and “The Turning” (Universal) were a decided improvement over the two duds opening last year (the quickly forgotten “The Kid Would Be King” and “Serenity”).

But the holdover heroes are led by repeating #1 “Bad Boys for Life.” It’s not unusual for older titles to perform
