Divergent Tops The Muppets At Box Office

In: Donovan, Movies

While not as robust as The Hunger Games‘ whopping $152.5 million opening, Shailene Woodley and Theo James respectably launched a new dystopian future franchise. Divergent scored a muscular $56 million debut. Much better than other recent young adult novel movie adaptations. The film’s first night receipts were enough for Lionsgate to greenlight the rest of the trilogy- Insurgent and Allegiant opening March 20, 2105 and March 18, 2016 respectively.

Coming in the runner-up slot is the latest Muppets flick, Muppets Most Wanted. Despite some big names including Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell, the family film only raked in $16.5 million. With a reported $50 million budget, Miss Piggy and Kermit have to majorly hustle in the coming weeks to break even.

Also opening this weekend was God’s Not Dead. The inspirational drama surprised everyone by earning $8.6 million from only 780 theaters. Son of God, another religious-themed film, also opened impressively last month with a solid $25.6 million. All this bible talk should bode well for Darren Aronofsky’s opus, Noah, which opens next weekend. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

Truth be told, I could watch Jennifer Lawrence clean her toe jam and I’d find it fascinating. Gross but you get the gist. Imagine my joy when the 23-year-old actress actually does something entertaining.

In this recently shared deleted scene from American Hustle, Lawrence demonstrates her killer lip syncing skills. Girl could give some of those busted contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race a run for their money. J. Law even plays the air guitar as she sings along to Santana’s “Evil Ways” while doing housework. It’s one of the special features found on the home video release of the Oscar-nominated film. Check out the cute clip below.

Forget the spoonful of sugar. It’s dem pills that make the medicine go down. Todrick Hall is back with another parody of a Walt Disney classic. With Saving Mr. Banks bringing the beloved film back to the forefront, Hall tackles everyone’s favorite nanny. Obviously, with his signature ratchet spin of course.

I’m sure author P.L. Travers is rolling in her grave after catching wind of this. The second he mistakenly introduces himself as Mary J. Blige instead of Mary Poppins, I was sold. Check his latest What The Funny masterpiece below.

Step Up Revolution generated the lowest domestic gross among the four films in the franchise. However, it raked in over $100 million in foreign territories, the second highest. Given its relatively low budget of $33 million, the profits are too huge for the movie studio to ignore. Expect plenty more Step Up films in the future.

The fifth one titled Step Up All In brings back Ryan Guzman who helmed the previous film. The dance franchise is taking a page from The Fast & Furious films. It’s bringing back several familiar faces for the new movie. Alyson Stoner (1 & 3), Briana Evigan (2), Luis Rosado (2 & 3) and Martin & Facundo Lombard (3) join Guzman, tWitch, Misha Gabriel, Christopher Scott, Adam Sevani and Chadd Smith who all appeared in Step Up Revolution.

Check out the new trailer below which features more never-ending dance battles. This time the action moves from Miami to Las Vegas. Step Up All In opens in July.

Another day, another film adaptation of a popular young adult novel set in a dystopian society. On the heels of The Maze Runner comes the Weinstein Company’s The Giver. The film is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. After spending more than 15 years in development hell, the feature film adaptation is here and with a stellar cast.

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.

Future cinematic superstar Brenton Thwaites tackles the role of Jonas with Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes playing his parents. Meryl Streep gets her evil on as the Chief Elder. “When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong,” she warns. Taylor Swift becomes a brunette to portray Rosemary, The Giver’s daughter. Check out the first trailer for The Giver below. It opens in August.

Disney Finally Announces The Incredibles 2 Is Coming

It’s news fans have been waiting for since 2004. Disney executives announced the long-awaited sequel for The Incredibles during the company’s shareholders meeting in Portland, Oregon. Other than that, very few details were released. Last summer, director Brad Bird talked about the potential sequel.

“People think that I have not been [thinking about 'The Incredibles 2'], but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another film, and if I can get ‘em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that.”

To tide moviegoers until that time, the studio announced plans to re-release the original Incredibles animated film in 3D, much like how they reformatted Pixar’s Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo. Ratatouille is also getting a 3D makeover.

Get ready for another movie franchise featuring a dystopian society with photogenic young adults. The latest novel series to receive a movie adaptation comes from author James Dashner, titled The Maze Runner.

Dylan O’Brien plays a boy named Thomas who finds himself waking up in a lift that takes him to a gigantic maze. The Teen Wolf actor can’t remember why he’s there. In fact, the only thing he can recall is his name. He’s joined in the enormous labyrinth by other boys who also can’t remember anything prior to being transplanted to the mysterious place called The Glade.

Every day, some of the kids venture into the giant maze trying to map the ever-changing pattern of walls in hopes of eventually finding an exit. The society of boys is thrown a curve ball when a girl shows up in the lift. To everyone’s surprise, she calls Thomas by his name and is the only who can recall her past. Skins actress Kaya Scoldelario plays the lone girl named Teresa.

Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually), Will Poulter (We’re The Millers), Jacob Latimore (Black Nativity) and Patricia Clarkson round out the cast. The Maze Runner hits theaters on September 19, 2014. Check out the first trailer below.
