Weekend Box Office: THE OTHER WOMAN Leads with $24.7 Million

by     Posted 181 days ago

One week before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 kicks off the official summer movie season, the box office was predictably underwhelming.  Three new titles debuted but only one, The Other Woman, left an impression.  Fox’s female-centric revenge comedy earned an estimated $24.7 million from 3,204 locations to easily lock down first place while fellow new releases Brick Mansions and The Quiet Ones struggled.

 Title Weekend Total
1.  The Other Woman $24,700,000 $24.7
2.  Captain America 2 $16,048,000 $224.8
3.  Heaven is for Real $13,800,000 $51.9
4.  Rio 2 $13,650,000 $96.1
5.  Brick Mansions $9,600,000 $9.6
6.  Transcendence $4,105,000 $18.4
7.  The Quiet Ones $4,000,000 $4
8.  Bears $3,606,000 $11.1
9.  Divergent $3,600,000 $139.4
10.  A Haunted House 2 $3,265,000 $14.2

Friday Box Office: THE OTHER WOMAN Knocks CAPTAIN AMERICA Out of First Place

by     Posted 182 days ago

the-other-woman-slice

After three weeks on top of the box office, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been vanquished.  The Marvel hit passed Thor: The Dark World’s final domestic gross earlier this week and, on its fourth weekend in theatres, is expected to stay strong in second place.  That makes The Other Woman the new number one film in America.  The Cameron Diaz comedy earned an estimated $9.3 million from 3,204 locations on Friday, putting it on track for $25 million this weekend.  That’s less than the $31.6 million debut of Diaz’s Bad Teacher, in 2011, but well above the $17 million that was projected.

The Other Woman aside, Friday was a hard day for new titles.  The action-drama Brick Mansions, featuring the late Paul Walker, earned an estimated $3.6 million in fourth place, while the PG-13 horror title The Quiet Ones brought in a very soft $1.5 million at number six.  We’ll have complete details on this weekend’s box office tomorrow.

 Title Friday Total
1.  The Other Woman $9,300,000 $9.3
2.  Captain America 2 $4,492,000 $213.3
3.  Heaven is for Real $4,050,000 $42.1
4.  Brick Mansions $3,590,000 $3.5
5.  Rio 2 $3,275,000 $85.7
6.  The Quiet Ones $1,520,000 $1.5

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See THE QUIET ONES

So a couple weeks ago, I wrote about how I was happy to give away passes to Oculus because it had been too long since we’d seen a horror film this year.  Thankfully, we’re not going to have another long wait since a new scary movie is right around the corner.  The Quiet Ones looks incredibly creepy plus it has a cool 1970s setting, which I thought was one of the stronger points of last year’s incredibly popular horror film, The ConjuringThe Quiet Ones went into production before The Conjuring was released, so you can’t accuse it of being a rip-off, and hopefully it will deliver the on the promising footage from the trailers.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Transcendence.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The film stars Jared HarrisSam ClaflinOlivia CookeErin Richards, and Rory Fleck-ByrneThe Quiet Ones opens April 25th.

New THE QUIET ONES Trailer Features Creepy Children’s Rhyme

One surefire way to get the creepy message of your horror story across: use children speaking rhymes while nightmarish imagery flashes in the background.  That’s the method that this new The Quiet Ones trailer employs, and it sure does the trick.  The John Pogue-directed picture follows a university professor and his students as they attempt to perform psychological experiments on a disturbed young girl.  Of course, it turns out that they’ve meddled with things they ought to have left alone, and the Quiet Ones become quiet no more.

Starring Jared HarrisSam ClaflinOlivia CookeErin Richards, and Rory Fleck-ByrneThe Quiet Ones opens April 25th.  Be sure to read up on this interview with Cooke, and check out the two previously released trailers and creepy motion posters.  Hit the jump to watch the new The Quiet Ones trailer.

After the explosive events that occurred in the first season of Bates Motel, things are only going to keep getting tougher and more dangerous for Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga), especially with the economic livelihood of the motel being threatened. On top of that, Dylan’s (Max Thieriot) business is in a precarious position, Norma’s brother (Kenny Johnson) is in town, and there are new love interests for the characters.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Olivia Cooke (who plays quirky teenager Emma Decody) talked about what most surprised her about Emma’s journey in Season 1, what she most enjoys about playing this character, how anxious she is to get tidbits of information about what’s to come, the status of Emma’s friendship with Norman, how close Emma is getting to Norma, what Emma’s new love interest will be like, that Emma will have a scare involving her Cystic Fibrosis, and that she’d love to see Emma caught up in a murder.  She also talked about her work in the upcoming feature films The Quiet Ones, a horror movie about a university physics professor who assembles a team to help create a poltergeist, and the thriller Ouija.  Check out our Olivia Cooke interview after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers. 

New Trailer for Supernatural Horror Film THE QUIET ONES Starring Jared Harris and Sam Claflin

Lionsgate has released a new trailer for director John Pogue’s supernatural horror film The Quiet Ones.  The pic stars Jared Harris as an unorthodox professor who sets up a series of dangerous experiments in order to explore the dark energy manifested by the damaged psyche of a young girl.  Naturally, things don’t quite turn out all fine and dandy.  Despite the now obligatory inclusion of a found footage aspect (though it appears to be minimal, thankfully), the pic seems like a solid entry in the historical horror genre.  The period setting sets The Quiet Ones apart from the deluge of modern, low-budget horror films that are currently populating the marketplace, so at least it feels a bit fresh.

Lionsgate has released a full trailer for the upcoming horror film The Quiet Ones.  The film stars Jared Harris as an unorthodox professor who sets up a series of dangerous experiments in order to create a poltergeist from negative human energy.  I’m a sucker for horror films set at least forty years in the past, and that was one of the things I liked best about The ConjuringThe Quiet Ones looks like it has some similarities by using a mix of creepy recorded footage and the supernatural evil attacking the researchers.  Aside from some questionable CGI at the end, this could be damn fine horror flick.

the-quiet-ones-jared-harris-slice

Hammer Films has released the first trailer for director John Pogue’s (Quarantine 2) supernatural horror film The Quiet Ones.  From the studio behind The Woman in Black, the film stars Jared Harris as an unorthodox professor who sets up a series of dangerous experiments in order to create a poltergeist from negative human energy.  While genuinely good original horror films are few and far between these days, The Quiet Ones doesn’t look half bad.  There’s a nice aesthetic to the piece that evokes the found footage genre without feeling forced, and Harris is pretty intimidating as the film’s lead.

Hit the jump to watch the UK version of The Quiet Ones trailer.  The film also stars Sam Claflin, Olivia Cooke, and Erin RichardsThe Quiet Ones opens in theaters on April 11, 2014.
