Sony Attack: Carmike Cinemas Won’t Screen ‘The Interview’

Originally posted on Variety:

Carmike Cinemas has bailed out on showing Sony’s comedy “The Interview” — the first fallout from the hackers’ threat to distributors.

The theater chain became the first to take up Sony’s offer to distributors to pull “The Interview” if they desire in advance of its wide release this Christmas. Sony remains committed to the planned opening.

Multiplex owners were caught by surprise Tuesday after hackers evoked the memory of 9/11 while threatening theaters that play the comedy about an attempted assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

The Carmike chain, based in Georgia, operates 278 theaters and 2,917 screens in 41 states. The sites are mostly in rural and suburban areas of the South.

Sony Pictures has stayed silent on the latest threat from the hackers and the Department of Homeland Security released a statement saying they have not yet discovered evidence of an active plot against U.S. theaters. But the…

Lionsgate Buys Mel Gibson’s ‘Blood Father’ for U.S. Release

Originally posted on Variety:

Lionsgate has bought U.S. distribution rights to action-thriller “Blood Father,” starring Mel Gibson.

Jean-Francois Richet directed “Blood Father” from a script by Peter Craig (“The Town”), who adapted his novel of the same name. The film was shot in the late spring in New Mexico.

Gibson plays an ex-con who reunites with his estranged 16-year-old daughter, and vows to protect her from the drug dealers who are trying to kill her. The daughter is played by Erin Moriarty, who portrayed Woody Harrelson’s daughter in HBO’s “True Detective.”

Elisabeth Rohm, William H. Macy and Diego Luna also star.

Why Not Productions produced. Wild Bunch launched international sales at Cannes.

Gibson and Andrew Garfield have been in talks to come on board World War II drama “Hacksaw Ridge.” If the deals go through, Gibson will direct the movie, based on the life of Desmond T. Doss, the first conscientious objector to win…

‘Think Like A Man Too’ Tops ‘Jersey Boys’ With $30M

Kevin Hart

NEW YORK (AP) — The Las Vegas ensemble comedy “Think Like a Man Too” topped a slow weekend at the summer box office with $30 million, besting blockbuster holdovers from last week and Clint Eastwood’s new Four Seasons musical “Jersey Boys.”

The Kevin Hart sequel “Think Like a Man Too” narrowly edged out “22 Jump Street,” which earned $29 million in its second week of release, according to studio estimates Sunday. The DreamWorks animated film “How to Train Your Dragon 2″ slid to third with $25.3 million.

The top three films are all sequels that moved into the big box-office summer season following surprise hit originals released in the springtime.

Moving into summer’s bigger competition actually diminished Sony Screen Gems’ “Think Like a Man Too.” The first film, also directed by Tim Story and starring mostly the same ensemble led by Hart, opened with $33.6 million in April 2012.

The box office continues to bow down to Kevin Hart.

The sequel to Steve Harvey’s best-selling relationship opus cruised to the #1 spot on Friday with a $12.2 million haul. (Take that, 23% score on Rotten Tomatoes!) The Tim Story-directed laffer, which also stars Michael Ealy, Regina Hall, and Meagan Good, follows the gang to Las Vegas for a wedding weekend. Think Like A Man Too played in 2,225 theaters and is on track to bring in opening weekend numbers comparable to the original’s $33.6 million bow in 2012.

“I’m going to publish it, and that’s it for now,” Tarantino said. “I give it out to six people and if I can’t trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it. I’ll publish it. I’m done. I’ll move…
