Longlegs Kills its Way to a $25 Million debut, and Despicable Me 4 wins the weekend

Published

on

At the summer box office, the Minions have taken the lead, and they aren’t letting go.

Despicable Me 4 is having a profitable weekend in theaters for the second week in a row. Within just two weeks of its release, the Illumination sequel has made $44.6 million domestically, a 40 percent decrease from its opening weekend profits. This brings its total box office receipts to $211 million.

Having started with Despicable Me just 12 years ago, the series has grown to become one of the highest-grossing animated franchises ever. The movie brought in an additional $87.9 million overseas, for a total cume of $437.8 million worldwide.

Oz Perkins’ most recent horror movie made $25.7 million at the box office worldwide after opening at $22.6 million domestically. Maika Monroe plays FBI Agent Lee Harker in the movie, an astute investigator tasked with solving the case of an unsolved serial killer who unexpectedly turns up evidence of the occult.

One of the main reasons people are lining up to see the horror movie in theaters is probably curiosity. In addition to learning the truth about the enigmatic murderer, viewers will only get to witness Nicolas Cage’s terrifying transition into the movie’s lead villain. The persona has so far been purposefully kept under wraps in movie trailers and promotional materials.

Prior to the movie’s premiere, Perkins told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s driving people towards a freak show at a circus tent.” “We’ve got the thing behind the curtain, and when there are enough people gathered ’round, we’re going to pull the curtain.”

Cage continued. “He is going to change your reality. Your doors of perception are going to open, and your life is not going to be the same.”

With a worldwide cume of $220.7 million, the thriller about surviving New York while superhearing aliens hunt humans made significantly less money abroad, taking in $10.4 million.

Fly Me to the Moon, an Apple movie that stars Channing Tatum and Scarlett Johansson as a NASA launch chief and marketing genius, rounds out the list at number five. Their adorableness is eclipsed as they collaborate during the final stages of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The movie made a total of $19 million worldwide after opening at just $10 million domestically and earning an additional $9 million in other countries. Aside from its run at the theater, the movie should do better when it becomes available on the studio’s streaming service, AppleTV+.

Johansson told EW that she was committed to seeing the movie through to completion since big romantic comedies are in high demand.

Johansson stated that “The most challenging projects to find are romantic comedies and dramedies.” “The totally original script by Rose Gilroy was what excited me most about this film. It is a big picture movie that feels both nostalgic and so modern and the kind of movie I’m always reaching for that you rarely get to see in theaters these days. Audiences are hungry for original films!”

Kevin Costner’s ‘Horizon 2’ Theatrical Release Postponed Amid First Film’s Box Office Disappointment

Published

on

Following the failure of Horizon: An American Saga—Chapter 1 during its late-month theater premiere, the movie has been removed from the release schedule for the time being. The sequel will still likely be released in theaters, albeit a new release date has not yet been revealed.

Following much deliberation, Territory Pictures, owned by Costner, and distribution partner New Line Cinema decided to reschedule their ambitious release schedule with the goal of giving the $100 million first film’s audience more time to grow.

As part of that endeavor, Chapter 1 will continue to be accessible for viewing in theaters and have its home debut on Premium VOD on July 16.

In order to allow viewers more time to find the first installment of Horizon over the next few weeks, especially on PVOD and Max, Territory Pictures and New Line Cinema have opted not to release Horizon: Chapter 2 on August 16. A New Line representative added, “We are grateful to our exhibition partners for their ongoing support as moviegoers across the U.S. discover the film during its theatrical run.

“The audience response to Horizon, and enthusiasm for seeing our story continue in Horizon 2, has been incredibly gratifying. Kevin made this film for people who love movies and who wanted to go on a journey. The support that we have received from film fans, and the theater owners, as they experience the first chapter of this saga only serves to reinforce our belief in them and the films that we have made, and we thank them for coming on board for the ride. We welcome the opportunity for that window to be expanded as we know it will only serve to enhance the experience of seeing Horizon 2.” added Territory Pictures in a separate statement.

Max’s Release Date is Still Pending

The parent company of New Line, Warner Bros., started alerting theater owners on Wednesday morning about the shocking last-minute move. The opportunity to purchase early tickets for Chapter 2 was provided by numerous theaters; however, those purchases will now need to be reimbursed.

Costner took a significant risk with the Horizon series, investing $38 million of his personal funds into Chapter 1 and raising the remaining funds from the sale of international rights and two unidentified investors. For a fee, New Line and Warners agreed to distribute and market the first two films, with Costner covering the marketing himself. Costner plans to produce a total of four movies.

Despite his reputation for confidence, Costner surprised the film industry when he said he would be directing four Horizon films, which would follow the enormous migration west during the Civil War era, for the first time in decades. Warner Bros. stated in April that it will be distributing the first two movies with a release window of less than two months apart, which was an unusual move. Because of his commitment to Horizon, Costner departed his popular program Yellowstone because he was so involved.

Although Costner’s film did not quite ignite his fans or Yellowstone viewers to the desired extent, especially those between the ages of 18 and 44, it did play best in mountainous regions, the Midwest, South, and South Central states. Costner believed his film would strike a nerve in America’s heartland, just as Yellowstone has. It should come as no surprise that the bulk of the audience is over 45 and the film has a noticeably older tilt.

Warner Bros. developed a marketing campaign that largely included Costner, who both toured the nation and had the film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. The studio also made use of sibling organizations that are a part of Warner Bros. Discovery, such as TCM, where Costner made an appearance as a guest programmer, and TNT sporting events, such MLB and NBA games. In addition, there were trips to military bases and comprehensive screening procedures in other locations.

The return date of Horizon: Chapter 2 to theaters has not yet been announced. The third and fourth film’s distribution rights were not acquired by Warner Bros. or New Line.
