The trailer begins with President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore), Beetee Latier (Jeffrey Wright) and Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) debating whether Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is too damaged to be the leader of the rebellion. President Coriolanus Snow (Donald Sutherland) is furious over the events that took place during the 74th Annual Hunger Games and the Quarter Quell, and he warns Panem’s citizens, “Any association of the Mockingjay symbol is forbidden.”

Scarlett Johansson as “Lucy” – More Transhumanist Propaganda (VIDEO)

By Carla B.

There has been no shortage of super heroes, they are everywhere. Captain America, Spider-man, Superman, The Fantastic Four, Thor and you can now add Scarlett Johansson as Lucy to the list. A devilish woman that turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic, according to IMDB.



Another film that allows us to take a cautious look at transhumanism — by placing it in a cautionary tale.  A superb masterful attempt at preparing the masses for the elites, new world order.

I can dig it.

What would you do if you could access the other 98% of your brain’s potential processing power? Something to think about, indeed.

Mogul Tyler Perry Sued for Hemming & Hawing Government Officials to Open Studio

By Tanya Blake

Follow us: @eotmonline on Twitter| eotm.media on Facebook

In Hollywood “Hotmess News” Tyler Perry is being sued by Ubiquitous, an entertainment company in Atlanta that claims it’s company has been planning its own “movie studio entertainment complex” on the Fort McPherson  Army post for years and the filmmaker blocked their plans to open a studio in the city.

Ubiquitous says its CEO met with the chairman of the government authority in December 2011 to share its vision of creating a movie studio and entertainment complex at the site. The company says Perry tried to persuade the authority to negotiate a similar deal with his company instead.

Ubiquitous has also named the U.S. Army and the government authority of Fort McPherson Military base as co-defendants in the suit.

Perry shoots many of his films and television shows at his Atlanta studio and is credited for making the city of Atlanta,  the “Hollywood of the South.” According to some media outlets, Perry’s productions brings “glitz and glamour” to the region.

According to the lawsuit, filed in federal court this week, the firm began meeting with the civilian authority overseeing Fort McPherson’s redevelopment about its plans as far back as 2011. UES wanted to buy 80 acres of the 488-acre post.

But purchasing the land was put on hold, according to the suit, because the civilian authority overseeing Fort McPherson redevelopment said it couldn’t negotiate an offer until it owned the property sometime in 2014.

Mayor Kasim Reed confirmed in June that the city has been in negotiations with Tyler Perry Studios to purchase a majority share of the property. Under the proposal, the filmmaker would buy much of the post from the McPherson Implementing Local Redevelopment Authority for $33 million.

Speaking to a city council committee Wednesday, Reed said the deal now calls for Perry to take control of 330 acres, the city to receive as much as 144 acres and for the Veterans Affairs hospital to have about 40 acres.

The lawsuit comes amid mixed reactions to the Perry proposal. At a Thursday meeting of the MILRA board, some residents asked for more information about the plan while others criticized how it came about. Local resident Stephen Knight questioned whether it was proper for Reed to strike a deal with Perry and then bring the proposal to MILRA for consideration.

“If the mayor can go out there to save face for himself and make a deal and bring it to this table and have you negotiate it, why can’t you let other people come and present it?” Knight said. “You might’ve gotten a better deal than with Mr. Perry.”

Others have previously praised the deal as a concrete opportunity to bring jobs and development to the post.

State. Sen. Vincent Fort, D-Atlanta, pleaded with the MILRA board that no matter what comes of Fort McPherson, the plan must involve the local community.

Fort also echoed repeated calls from members of the community for more information about the proposal. MILRA board members have said they can’t discuss the details because negotiations are ongoing.

“I would implore you to provide as much information about how this deal came to fruition, how it’s developing and how it’s working. You can do that without putting the deal at risk,” Fort said. “The community, I will tell you this, the community is skeptical about what is going on over here.”

Tyler Perry studios has declined EOTM Online’s request for comment.

Vin Diesel recently sat down with Extra to discuss  “Fast & Furious 7” without his good friend Paul Walker, who died in a fiery car crash last year.

Paul’s brother, Cory and Caleb, stepped in to help finish the film, and Diesel said the experience was “surreal.”

“On some levels it was very cool to know his brothers were supporting this and wanting to help. On another level, they triggered memories, unintentionally at times. There’s no one like Paul Walker and there was only one Paul Walker, and it is a very tricky task for an actor to both mourn and be in the process of that stage of mourning and also have to pretend that person is still there. It made the experience that much more arduous.”

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Box Office News

Published by EOTM News Editor on July 13th, 2014 - in Box Office News, Entertainment News, Film News, Movies

Box Office: ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Grosses $73M Weekend

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes debuted with a terrific $73 million. That includes $4.1m in Thursday previews and a $27.7m opening Friday. The 20th Century Fox (a division of 21st Century Fox , Inc.) sequel, which cost $170m to produce, opened well above the $54.8m debut weekend scored by Rise of the Planet of the Apes in August 2011. While some of the bump can be attributed to the sequel going 3D (Rise was straight 2D), this is still a case of a sequel breaking out. Rise of the Planet of the Apes had a strong 2.8x weekend multiplier, while the sequel had a surprisingly robust 2.63x, including a drop of just 5% on Saturday. Heck, if you knock off the Thursday previews, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes made more on Saturday (about $26m) than it did during normal Friday business hours ($23.6m). This is why weekend multipliers matter.

Image credit: FOX

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which features Andy Serkis and Gary Oldman in a saga taking place ten years after humanity has been mostly wiped out, jumped 33% from the opening weekend of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which would put it above Iron Man 2 (25%) and Thor: The Dark World (32%). The 2D-to-3D explains some of the bounce (Iron Man 3 jumped 35% from the opening weekend of Iron Man 2), but thus far this is somewhat capitalizing on the positive buzz and slow-build success of Rise of the Planet of the Apes three years ago. That film earned $176m domestic and $481m worldwide, the second-biggest August release ever. Barring a complete collapse (unlikely with the strong weekend multiplier and relatively light July slate), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which played 36% 3D and 8% PLF, should cross $200m domestic.

SEE ALSO:‘Think Like a Man Too’ Lackluster effort when compared to it’s Predecessor

It opened with $31.1 million in 26 markets overseas this weekend for a $104m worldwide debut. Overseas is an open question, but Fox’s unmatched overseas muscle means that I cannot imagine the film not crossing $500m worldwide. Rise of the Planet of the Apes (and The Help) basically closed out the summer 2011 box office season, resulting in a strong 3.25 weekend-to-final multiplier. A similar run, however unlikely, would give the sequel $240 million domestic. It will have to face an uncommonly strong August this time around (Guardians of the GalaxyTeenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesSin City 2Expendables 3). Nonetheless, the comparatively leggy opening weekend, strong reviews, and strong buzz points to a healthy theatrical run.

The Apes franchise has always been a popular one, be it the original five-film series starting in 1968 to Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes remake back in 2001. Yes, said Mark Wahlberg adventure (which basically invented the reboot) was pretty bad, but it scored the second-biggest opening weekend of all-time back then with $69m (it would be about $106m today with 3D and inflation). The series has always been a useful vessel for political/social commentary (this one offers a potent and timely lesson in the seductive power of firearms), even if said topicality is now status quo for most big-scale blockbusters. The film played 47% Caucasian, 23% African-American, 16% Hispanic, and 14% Asian. It played 58% male and 45% over-25 years old. The franchise remains a popular way for audiences to spend two hours thinking about how horrible humanity is.

In limited release news, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood debuted on five screens this weekend. The obscenely well-reviewed “shot over twelve years chronicling a single child growing up” drama earned $358,000 over the weekend, for a robust $71,000 per-screen average. The IFC film will allegedly expand next weekend. The good news is that the film had the second-best limited debut of the year, behind The Grand Budapest Hotel. The “bad” news is that this debut tells you little about how the film will play over the course of its run. It’s a 2.45 hour narrative experiment with no major box office draws. It could top out at $6m or it could catch on by selling to the kinds of families it (relatively speaking) represents. Either way, the fact that it got made (especially considering how it was made) is the only victory that matters here.   

The rest is holdover news. Tammy earned another $12.9 million as the Melissa McCarthy comedy dropped just 40% from last weekend. The $20m New Line/Warner Bros. (a division of Time Warner, Inc.) comedy, written off as a flop, has now earned $57.354m domestically. If it can survive Sex Tape next weekend, it has a real shot at $80m-$85m. Paramount’s Transformers: Age of Extinction earned $16.5m (-55%) over its third weekend, bringing its cume to $209m. The Mark Wahlberg film is sinking fast and should end its domestic run with $240m, about on par with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Like that (horrible horrible) fourth sequel, the film’s domestic franchise fatigue (the other Transformers films earned $319m, $408m, and $352m respectively) is being compensated for overseas, as the Michael Bay sequel has earned $752m worldwide and still has a shot at that magic $1 billion mark.

DreamWorks Animation’s How To Train Your Dragon 2 earned another $5.87 million on its fifth weekend (-37%), bringing what is still the summer’s best “big” movie up to $152m. It’s finally showing something resembling legs just before Walt Disney’s Planes: Fire and Rescue comes to extinguish it next weekend. On the plus side, it has earned $350m worldwide as of today. Sony’s  22 Jump Street earned  $6.7m on its fifth weekend for a new $171.9m domestic cume, just passing the $169m gross of Bridesmaids. It probably won’t cross $200m domestic, but it will triple its $57m opening weekend and is already one of the biggest R-rated comedies ever. It has also earned $250m worldwide.

Relativity’s Earth To Echo earned $5.5m on its second weekend (-36%). The kid-centric sci-fi adventure has now earned $24.59m domestic.  Jersey Boys has now topped $41m, making it the second-biggest grossing film (behind the $90m Mystic River) that Clint Eastwood has directed without starring in.  Deliver Us From Evil earned $4.7m (-50%), which isn’t a bad drop for a horror title. The supernatural police procedural brought its domestic cume to $25m, with its utter devastation coming next weekend at the hands of The Purge: Anarchy.

Of note, Dinesh D’souza’s America dropped just 11% in its second weekend, bringing in $2.4m and bringing its cume to $8.267m. It’s not going to challenge Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 ($119m), but getting over/under D’souza’s 2016: Obama’s America ($33m) isn’t out of the question. Walt Disney’s Maleficent earned around $4m (-34%) on weekend six. The Angelina Jolie fantasy has a new domestic cume of $221m. At this rate, it will catch up to X-Men: Days of Future Past ($229m) domestically. With $668m worldwide and going strong, it may-well end up one of the summer’s top global grossers (possibly passing the $733m-and-counting cume for X-Men: Days of Future Past) and one of the most cost-to-gross profitable films of the would-be tent poles (it has earned 3.71x its $180m budget).

The Mark Ruffalo/Keira Knightley musical romance Begin Again expanded to 932 theaters this weekend and earned $2.9m over the frame, with a new domestic cume of $5.2m. Think Like A Man Too earned $2.5m (-49%) over the weekend for a new domestic cume of $61.9m for the $24m comedy sequel. Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow earned another $1.865m, bringing its domestic cume to $94.5m. It has earned $256m overseas for a $350m worldwide cume. Universal’s Neighbors has crossed $251m worldwide on an $18m budget. Oh, and The Fault in Our Stars has earned $119m domestic and $117m overseas for a $237m cume on a $12m budget.

That’s it for this weekend. It’s another busy frame next weekend as Walt Disney’s Planes: Fire and Rescue (seeing it tonight, review tomorrow or Tuesday) squares off against Universal’s The Purge: Anarchy (review Thursday) and Sony’s Cameron Diaz/Jason Segal farce Sex Tape.

‘Think Like a Man Too’ Lackluster effort when compared to it’s Predecessor

By Tanya Blake

Follow us:@eotmonline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

Think Like a Man Too does not live up to its predecessor, Think Like A Man, which grossed over $91 million buckaroos.

 

Their antics at The Hustler Club land Dominic (Michael Ealy), Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara), Isaac (Adrian Brody), Cedric (Kevin Hart), Bennett (Gary Owen), Michael (Terrence J), Terrell (David Walton) and Zeke (Romany Malco) in trouble in Screen Gems’ THINK LIKE A MAN TOO.

The very funny flick based on Steve Harvey’s advice book  Act Like a Lady; Think Like a Man – which was based on the idea that men and women think different and that women must scheme to get the attention of the men they want, relying entirely on stereotypical types.

Think Like A Man Too - Sony Pictures

Well, if you’re a fan of the original (like I am) you may want to pass on the film at your neighborhood theater and wait for it to become available for download or on DVD because it does not live up to it’s hype. A couple notables, there is the blatant omission of Steve Harvey. Whereas, the first film utilized the expertise Harvey spelled out in the book, there is no mention of him this time around. Instead, Kevin Hart’s character, Cedric, does the narration (which Harvey did in the original film) and – with Cedric’s lack of success in his marriage to Gail (Wendy Williams), one would think he would be the last person giving advice, I’m just saying.

The movie’s sequel opened yesterday and topped Fridays box office, grossing $12.2 million. “Jersey Boys,” Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the Broadway musical came in at a close 2nd with $12 million this weekend.

The Odds Are Never In Our Favor – More Absolute Misery & Tyranny, Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Posters

By Carla B.

Follow us:@eotmonline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

Something is really wrong with the world we live in, I’m just saying. Ironically, right after I watched The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (yes I realize I am very late) the new posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, were released online and they are chilling. Check out the flicks that have arrived for your viewing pleasure, below.

Lionsgate has done it again. Incredible job in bringing to life the world of brewing warfare and brutal punishment of the citizens from the mythical country of Panem.

Interestingly these latest posters don’t focus on characters from the movie. Instead, they give us a look at the world beyond the film with some similarities to the real world. For example, there are districts/areas, in which the inhabitants live in absolute poverty and despair. Meanwhile, the elite live the life of luxury with none of the restrictions imposed on the poor. True to the nature of our world..? I know some of y’all may say I’m stretching a bit…. whatever. [shrugs]

Many people live in a squalor…yes, while the elite bask in luxury, courtesy of the withheld technology that only the privileged have access to.??

The odds for being selected to participate in these games comes down to luck and the most important factor would be the amount of food rations that a family draws from the government. It is interesting to note that the vast wilderness areas surrounding the 12 districts are filled with plentiful game to hunt and eat. However, the government expressly forbids venturing into the pristine wilderness (i.e. Wildlands and biodiversity areas) to hunt because the central government wants to utilize food as a form of population control as well as a means to subjugate the masses through the complete management of this resource.

But I digress. Enjoy the posters & may the odds be ever in your favor!

District 3, where Beetee and Wiress of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire came from, is the center for Panem’s tech development. But there is something spooky and almost inhuman about their representative here.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ hits theaters November 21.
