Check out the April 21-23 box office estimates below. The Terry George-directed film only pulled in an estimated $4 million dollar in 2,251 locations. 9 is Open Road Films’   The Promise, a period drama set during the events of the Armenian genocide, starring Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, and Charlotte Le Bon. At No. Similarly,   Beauty and the Beast remains a family favorite both domestically and internationally (having recently opened at No. Coming in second once again   is   The Boss Baby, which barely takes a hit with its 20 percent drop, as it continues to perform well, pulling in an estimated $12.8 million in what is now its fourth week out, making for an estimated $137 million domestic haul for the Alec Baldwin-starring animated film. 1 – The Fate of the Furious – $38.7 million

Show Full Article Per ComScore, overall box office is up 5.7 percent the same frame last year. Following its record-breaking debut   last week, the   adrenaline-fueled car flick (and the   eighth   installment in the popular Universal action series) pulled in an estimated $38.7 million at the domestic box office, still managing to secure a first place finish despite the (expected) 61 percent drop in earnings — and marking yet another significant decrease in the franchise:   Furious 7    earned $73 million in its second week alone. The R-rated drama, which stars Katherine Heigl   as the ex-wife of the man Rosario Dawson’s character is engaged to, performed poorly, only earning an estimated $4.8 million following and failing to leave a mark on audiences, who gave it a C on CinemaScore. Combined with the $9.4 million it earned in China last year, the John Krasinski-narrated, China-set nature documentary is set to take in an estimated $14.6 million worldwide. It also marks the highest grossing Disney nature documentary opening so far, with previous features   Monkey Kingdom   and   Bears, earning $4.5 million and $4.7 million respectively. However, as noted in social media posts by celebrities of Armenian descent like Cher and Kim Kardashian, one of the major goals of the film was to raise awareness of the issue rather than earn a profit. However, with an estimated domestic earning of $471.1 million, it may knock out Star Wars: Episode 1 for the title of the 10th highest grossing movie of all time (adjusted for inflation) domestically. The Fate of the Furious continues its winning streak as it races to the top for the second week in a row. Cracking the box office top five this week is   Born In China, which debuts in fourth place with an estimated $5.1 million following its recent North American release. The Zach Braff-directed update of the 1979 heist comedy ends this weekend with an estimated domestic total of $31.8 million. With an estimated worldwide total of $908.4 million in only its second week   — and with the film yet to open in Japan   — the film is expected to cross the $1 billion mark by its third week out. A little further down in the top 10 is Denise Di Novi’s directorial debut   Unforgettable. And given the film’s A- score on CinemaScore, it seems to have succeeded in doing so. And rounding off the top 10 is   The Lost City of Z, which opened in 614 theaters to an estimated total of $2.1 million for only its second week. And completing the top five list is Going In Style, which continues to perform steadily among its older target audience, remaining in fifth place for the second week in a row as it earns an estimated $5 million in its third week.

Alejandro González Iñárritu calls ignorance, fear ‘the enemy’ at Tribeca

Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu hasn’t shied away from slamming President Donald Trump in the past. I know it’s a huge problem, but I’m not a politician. Show Full Article Those are the enemy and not anybody else, and in a way, from the cultural debate and from the humanistic debate and from   these   platforms, we can really answer that… We have to elevate the conversation to another level.”
Iñárritu admits that that level includes   his   next project, a virtual reality-based film called   Carne y Arena   (“Flesh and Sand”), which he said   came from an idea he had four years ago to turn the camera toward the ignored immigrant population’s stories — stories that have become more relevant than ever. About a year later, in September 2016, he called Mexican president Peña Nieto’s invitation for Trump to visit the country “a betrayal” in a scathing op-ed for   El País, writing that the then-Republican presidential nominee had “insulted us, spat on us, and threatened us for more than a year before the entire world… It lacks dignity and in turn strengthens a political campaign of hatred toward us, toward half of humanity, and toward the most vulnerable minorities on the planet.”
But during a Tribeca Film Festival-hosted conversation with performance artist Marina Abramović on Saturday afternoon, months after Trump’s inauguration, Iñárritu largely steered clear of politics. But what I know is that there is ignorance, there’s fear. “I don’t have a domain in that territory,” he said. In 2015, he delivered a speech   denouncing Trump’s proposed border wall. “Few people really know their past and the reasons why they came.”
“Immigration and terrorism were blended in 2001,” he continued. “Suddenly, they were caught in this fear and ignorance of who [they]   are… Seeing their realities, I thought it would be amazing at least just to document a piece of the undocumented moments or stories of their journeys.”
Carne y Arena   is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May. “I found myself really close to the stories of immigrant people from Mexico and Central America, who have really struggled a lot,” he said. When Abramović pointedly   asked The Revenant director   whether he feels that he, as one of few prominent Mexican directors, has a platform to speak out about the current state of America’s government, he   carefully considered the question, explaining   that he doesn’t play a large enough role in the political conversation   to   solve the issues he sees happening. “I don’t have an answer to the problem.
