Box office disaster: Harrison Ford's 'Paranoia' has the worst debut of 2013 (and his career)

paranoia-03

Together, Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, and Harrison Ford have starred in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time. Hemsworth has The Hunger Games, Oldman had the Harry Potter films, and Ford starred in two little franchises called Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

But the trio of actors couldn’t lift the $40 million thriller Paranoia — which you may not have realized opened in 2,459 theaters on Friday — out of the box office doldrums. In fact, Paranoia bombed. Badly. The film earned just $3.5 million in its first three days, which yielded a pitiful $1,423 per-theater average. Not only is that the worst debut of 2013 for a movie opening in more than 2,000 theaters — stealing the inauspicious title from Tyler Perry Presents Peeples, which opened with $4.6 million in May — it’s the worst wide opening weekend of Ford’s entire career. Han Solo can usually do better than 13th place.

Paranoia was directed by Robert Luketic, the rom-com specialist behind films like Legally Blonde, The Ugly Truth, and Monster-in-Law. Neither audiences nor critics enjoyed his take on the business thriller, though. The film currently has a 2 percent “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and polled crowds stamped it with an awful “C+” CinemaScore grade. Ads for the film were confusing, and despite their effort to explain the storyline, made the film look like little more than a jumbled mess of corporate conspiracy.

'Paranoia' trailer: Liam Hemsworth stars opposite Gary Oldman, Harrison Ford in corporate thriller

Gale, you’re not in District 12 anymore.

Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth is going from playing a poor boy in a post-apocalyptic world to a Brooklyn guy climbing the corporate ladder in upcoming movie Paranoia. The first trailer for the book-based thriller hit the web today.

Adapted from the 2004 novel of the same name by Joseph Finder, Paranoia follows Adam Cassidy, a recent college grad trying to get his career started with an entry-level job at Wyatt Corporation. When the CEO (Gary Oldman) enlists him as a company spy and has him steal trade secrets from his rival (Harrison Ford), things start to get messy as he’s caught between two kings of the corporate world.

The trailer has a bit of a Paycheck vibe (sans memory wipe), as Adam gets involved with revolutionary new technology that he decides he must destroy. Also, check out how Adam gets groomed to play the part of young corporate hotshot — with the preppy polo shirts, crisp expensive suits, and parted hair, it looks like The Social Network‘s Winklevoss twins were actually meant to be the Winklevoss triplets.

Watch the trailer, which debuted on Yahoo.com, below: READ FULL STORY

• Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, Girls) is in early talks to join The Weinstein Company’s St. Vincent De Van Nuys. The charming Irish actor would join the already incredible cast of Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy to play a Catholic priest. Ted Melfi’s 2011 Black List script follows a 12-year-old kid who befriends his elderly next door neighbor (Bill Murray), a war veteran who spends his days drinking and gambling. Sometimes with prostitutes. The film is expected to start shooting in July. It will be Melfi’s directorial debut. O’Dowd’s latest film, The Sapphires, is currently showing in limited release, before a wider expansion next week. [Deadline]

Funny or Die buddies (NSFW) Dave Franco (Warm Bodies) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick-Ass 2) are set to join the cast of Townies, alongside Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Rose Byrne.

• Emma Watson might get the princess treatment in Kenneth Branagh’s live action adaptation of Cinderella for Disney. Cate Blanchett has already been cast as the wicked stepmother.

'Lawless' red-band trailer: Booze, bullets, blood, and bosoms! -- NSFW VIDEO

Before the Internet, it was nearly impossible to get a true sense of what a hard-R rated movie was like from its trailer, which the MPAA insists must be palatable for all audiences. But thanks to the proliferation of the online red-band trailer — which can only be shown in a movie theatre before R-rated movies, and even that rarely happens — we can get a far more accurate idea of what’s in store for a movie like, say, the upcoming Depression-era thriller Lawless, starring Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, and Jason Clarke as the bootlegging Bondurant brothers. And indeed, the new red-band trailer makes clear the film, which opens Wed., Aug. 29, is chockablock with confrontations both savage and sexy. Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY

Gary Oldman talks 'Dark Knight Rises' ending, and Tom Hardy spills on Bane inspiration

At the star-studded premiere of Dark Knight Rises last night (check out a compilation of live-stream footage here) the stars were ready to talk about the final film in Christopher Nolan’s epic trilogy — but they were tight-lipped as far as plot specifics. (No big details are given away, but for those that want to remain totally spoiler free, here is your SPOILER ALERT!)

Gary Oldman, who plays police commissioner Gordon in the films, told EW when asked about the ending, “It packs an emotional punch, this one,” Oldman said. “And it’s got hope. [Dark Knight wasn’t so hopeful.] But we still had another one to make. [This one] has got a nice, uplifting theme to it.”

Christian Bale agreed with Oldman’s assessment of the tone. He told EW, “There’s a lot of complexities to it.” But as to whether or not Dark Knight Rises would feel different from Dark Knight, Bale didn’t want to distinguish. “I kind of feel like [the trilogy] is one movie anyway,” he said.
