It’s Monday! That means it’s time for our weekend box office report brought to us by our friends at AMC Theatres. Coming in at #1 this week is the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation making $56 million dollars, well over the initial projection of $40-$45 million. In second place is the new Vacation
film bringing in $14.8 million on its opening weekend. In the number 3 spot is the Marvel film Ant-Man taking in an additional $12.6 million to bring its domestic 3 week total up to $132 million dollars. In 4th is the Universal animated film Minions making in additional $12.2 million to bring its 4 week total up to $287 million and a worldwide total of $855 million dollars. Rounding out the top 5 is the Adam Sandler comedy Pixels which brought in $10.4 million dollars in its 2 weekend for a 2 week domestic total of $45.6 million dollars.
Remember last week when reports were swirling around that Channing Tatum was planning on leaving the upcoming Fox film Gambit? Well, apparently those reports were bogus. Tatum and Fox have finalized their deal which could see Tatum playing the role of the kinetic energy harnessing mutant for 10 years. The report also reveals that while there were a number of minor sticking points in the contract negotiations, it was nothing outside of the normal back and forth always present in these types of contracts and that the deal was never in any jeopardy as Tatum and Fox have both been committed to this project for some time.

The first trailer for the upcoming Zoolander 2 has hit the web. Star Ben Stiller describes the new film like this: “It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe. It’s basically Derek and Hansel ten years later – though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them.”
Speaking of new trailers, a brand new spot for the upcoming Anne Hathaway, Robert De Niro film The Intern has arrived. Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) is a 70-year-old widower who has discovered that retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site.
Ryan Proctor writes: Hey guys what’s up I’m a huge fan of the show, my question relates to a sequel to the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot . several months ago a release date was announced for the film and ever since we have had different stories regarding the troubled shoot of the reboot. With that being said do you think the studio is having second thoughts due to the embargo for reviews on the new film or are they overly confident that the film could get a sequel. Your thoughts?
Fernando Solis writes: Hello John Campea and the Collider crew. I have been seeing a common trend, in which critically acclaimed movies suddenly get backlashed when they get recognition by award. For example, Gravity. When it was first released, everyone I knew loved it. But as soon as it was nominated for award, those same people said it wasn’t good. This has also happened to Argo and Birdman. The question is why? Why do critically acclaimed movies suddenly get hated on when it gets nominated for an award? Thanks and bring on the filthy!
Steven Potjeau writes: Hey guys, love your show. I’ve been curious as to how actors/ actresses get paid for doing movie/ TV show/ video game productions. Do they get paid based on their net worth/ salary or is there a completely different process to this? I’m not completely sure, and I thought maybe you could help out. Thanks!
Kendall Ganaway writes: Greeting to you all at Collider Movie Talk. I was wondering if you all have heard anything else about G.I. Joe 3 and the characters that might be in the movie. I was a big fan of the animated cartoon, so I would love to see the Crimson Guard Commanders, Tomax and Xamot in the 3rd movie. Also, I think Storm Shadow and the Baroness would be a big plus to bring back to the franchise. Thanks for all the movie news, I really enjoy watching the show on YouTube every chance I get.
