Box office preview: 'Gone Girl' gets some fresh competition

Robert Downey Jr., Dracula, and a cute, unlucky family have all come out to challenge Gone Girl and Annabelle‘s box office reign this weekend.

David Fincher’s popular psychological thriller could hold down the top spot for the second weekend in a row, with that demon doll close behind, but it’s going to be a tight race with The Judge, Dracula Untold, and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. The adultery thriller Addicted also opens in around 800 locations, and there’s a slew of great limited release choices debuting too, including the buzzy Sundance sensation Whiplash.

Here’s how things might play out.

Jason Reitman talks the challenges of making 'Men, Women & Children'

In his latest film, Men, Women & Children, director Jason Reitman explores the different ways in which technology influences our lives. Based on Chad Kultgen’s book of the same name, the film follows a handful of characters, looking into the way they use the social media, texting, and more to express their sexuality, raise their kids, and connect with others.

We talked with Reitman about adapting the book, the difficulties of portraying sexuality on-screen, and what comes next for him.

Watch Kristen Stewart bond with a detainee in new 'Camp X-Ray' clip

camp-x-ray

Camp X-Ray may be about as far from Twilight as Kristen Stewart can get, but in her portrayal of a young guard serving at Guantanamo Bay, she does find herself back in the YA-lit world, if ever so briefly.

Her character, Private Amy Cole, starts to develop a delicate friendship with detainee Ali Amir (A Separation‘s Peyman Moaadi) when she discovers he’s a big fan of the Harry Potter books.

“The movie is really about their relationship and how they have to deal with each other on a day to day basis,” director Peter Sattler told EW after the film’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. “They have these weird ups and downs as they struggle to make their way through this.”

Check out an exclusive clip from the film below in which Amy Cole implores Ali Amir to follow the rules of the camp for his own well-being.

Sony ponders 'Robin Hood' universe, because why not?

As The Avengers showed us all, people love “shared universes.” You can take any random bunch of movie ideas—don’t bother with worrying about them being any good or anything—as long as you make sure they’re in that shared universe, people will love it. (Case in point: The Amazing Spider-Man 2.) This works out for movie studios too—money’s tight, why should they have to keep churning out entirely new universes for every new movie that waltzes  in? That’s just wasteful! Share ‘em! Shove it, Carl Sagan!

Which is why we’re probably going to get a shared universe of Robin Hood films. Perplexed? You shouldn’t be! Robin Hood and his Merry Men, as you should know, were like The Avengers of yore, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to THR, Sony is considering dropping $1-2 million on a pitch called Hood by Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott, which would be the start of a series of films about the legendary bandit and his band of Merry Men. There aren’t many details about the project at this point, but its tone reportedly aligns with “Mission: Impossible and the recent Fast & Furious movies,” which is a really obtuse way of saying “fun as hell.” Which is really this movie’s only hope, because as far as shared universes go, it looks like it’s turtles all the way down, folks.

See the new poster for horror film 'The Babadook'

In the new, much-buzzed-about horror film The Babadook, a children’s book comes to life and turns the life of single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) into a living hell. Given that premise, we thought twice about debuting the poster for the film, which opens in cinemas Nov. 28, lest a similar fate befall us here at EW Towers.

But, hey, you only live (and die!) once.

From 'Psycho' to 'Gone Girl': the best director/composer teams

REZNOR-ROSS.jpg

With this weekend’s release of Gone Girl, director David Fincher has once again showcased the unsettling sounds of award-winning composers Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor (above). Ever since 2010’s The Social Network, the duo have become a fixture of Fincher’s work. The duo’s deceptively minimal sound, with subtle motifs barely hiding cold electronic undercurrents, is remarkably well-suited for Fincher’s trademark visual aesthetic, in which every smile and doorway can take on an air of menace if the camera lingers long enough. While he has worked with a number of composers before—most notably Howard Shore—Fincher has found a sonic soulmate in Ross and Reznor’s scoring.

But what about the other great director/composer relationships in Hollywood history? What other composers have had their music strongly associated with a director’s work, so much so that you can’t picture a film without hearing the score?  READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Annabelle' sneaks ahead of 'Gone Girl'

Annabelle and Gone Girl will exceed expectations as both head for a possible $30+ million showing this weekend.

Though that terrifying doll from The Conjuring took first place on Friday with an estimated $15.5 million, it’s likely that David Fincher’s well-regarded adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestseller will inch ahead when the weekend totals are tallied. Poorly reviewed horror movies do not age well, even across a single weekend. Interestingly, audiences gave both Annabelle and Gone Girl a B CinemaScore, suggesting that neither lived up to their expectations.

Box office preview: Will 'Gone Girl' triumph over 'Annabelle'?

It’s a battle of the R-rated thrillers at the box office this week, and though both Gone Girl and Annabelle are tracking similarly, it looks like David Fincher’s literary adaptation may have an edge in both the short and long term.

The Christian-themed action pic Left Behind also opens in under 2,000 theaters, and, as with most faith-based releases, its success or failure is somewhat of a wildcard. Industry tracking can never seem to get a solid handle on the Christian market.

Here’s how things might play out.

Dan Harmon crowd surfs in exclusive clip from 'Harmontown'

Community creator Dan Harmon is a comedy heavyweight. He’s also something of an actual heavyweight. (I write this as a man who could stand to lose a pound or 20 myself.) But did that stop the mercurial, mirth-creating madman attempting to crowd surf when he took his Harmontown podcast on the road in early 2013? It most certainly did not, as the exclusive clip below from the tour-documenting, and utterly fascinating, new film Harmontown very much makes clear.
