For all that his character complained about being “too old for this s***,” Danny Glover was only 40-years-old when “Lethal Weapon” was filmed. Originally, the movie ended with Riggs and Murtaugh bidding farewell rather than Riggs showing up for Christmas dinner at the Murtaugh household.10. It’s just as well Glover was still a spring chicken, as he and Gibson had to go through some pretty intense physical training for their roles. Some guys have all the luck…3. Willis turned down the part of Riggs to star in “Die Hard,” while Gibson turned down the part of John McClane to star in “Lethal Weapon.”7. No wonder Murtaugh didn’t actually wind up retiring until 1997’s “Lethal Weapon 4.”4. “And we had a young character that actually counter-pointed them.”So why did the movie not happen? Both actors spent months training and studied martial arts forms like Capoeira, Brazilian jiu-jitsu. In an interview with Nerdist’s The Writer’s Panel podcast, Black revealed that he co-wrote a 62-page treatment that would reunite the iconic cops in what the filmmaker thought would make for a “very good movie.” “It was essentially an older Riggs and Murtagh in New York City during the worst blizzard in east coast history, fighting a team of expert Blackwater guys from Afghanistan that’s smuggling antiquities,” Black said. Riggs is very good at cheating death. Willis was hardly the only one to turn down the part of Riggs. The film once featured completely different opening and ending scenes. Most aspiring filmmakers have to work for years to get a foothold into the industry, but writer Shane Black wrote the “Lethal Weapon” screenplay shortly after graduating from UCLA and almost immediately caught the eye of producer Joel Silver. “And he’s gonna take over and we’re gonna do a spinoff. While we’ll probably never see a “Lethal Weapon 5,” now that the franchise has been rebooted for TV, Shane Black apparently did write a story for a new sequel. F**k that, if they’re gonna be in the movie, they’re gonna be in the movie — I don’t care how old they are.” Other candidates included Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Reeve, Patrick Swayze, Pierce Brosnan, and Michael Douglas.8. Mel Gibson can thank Riggs for landing him the juicy lead role in 1990’s “Hamlet.” Director Franco Zeffirelli was impressed by Gibson’s acting in the scene where Riggs considers committing suicide.2. Posted March 6, 2017 by Jesse SchedeenHard as it is to believe, the original “Lethal Weapon” turns 30 this year. To celebrate this milestone, join us as we explore some interesting facts you might not know about this classic buddy-cop action movie.1. During the course of the movie, Murtaugh tells Riggs a story about surviving a battle in Ia Drang Valley during the Vietnam War. “Star Trek” icon Leonard Nimoy was approached to direct “Lethal Weapon,” but he was apparently turned off by the film’s violence. “I didn’t wanna do what people do when they’re trying to transition which is, they sorta put the two older guys in the movie, but really it’s about their son!” Black said. Instead, Nimoy went on to direct the hit comedy “Three Men and a Baby.”6. An earlier draft of the script had Riggs dying at the end, and Black also contemplated killing off the character in 1989’s “Lethal Weapon 2.”11. Well, maybe not that hard when you take a gander at Mel Gibson’s mullet…But even after all these decades, Detectives Riggs and Murtaugh are anything but too old for this s***. and something called “Jailhouse Rock.”5. Funnily enough, Mel Gibson would eventually go on to star in 2002’s “We Were Soldiers,” which depicts that particular battle (above).9. We very nearly lived in a world where Bruce Willis played Detective Riggs and Mel Gibson was the face of the “Die Hard” franchise.

Posted March 6, 2017 by Gina CarboneEmma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) is taking Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) off the rum — and dessert — after the March 5 return of “Once Upon a Time” Season 6.The midseason premiere brought back several old friends, including Pinocchio (Eion Bailey) and Robin Hood (Sean Maguire), but it was Wish Realm Hook who had fans talking … I wanted him to be a complete contrast to who Hook is at the minute, but also he, in his mind, believes that he is God’s gift to women and that he has this fantastic debonair air about him when in actual fact, he’s just a mess.”He came off like a Hook version of Captain Jack Sparrow. I really wanted him to sound like Hook, but different, older. Wish Hook had aged a great deal beyond his Storybrooke counterpart, and also got a bit … on ABC.

This isn’t just girls are better than boys, boys are better than girls. You disappoint me.” And, “Emma Watson: “Feminism, feminism… Or, as Maisie Williams of “Game of Thrones” suggested at one point, just “normal person” will do. Photograph by Tim Walker.A post shared by Vanity Fair (@vanityfair) on Feb 28, 2017 at 10:02am PSTAmericans are notoriously fine with violence but queasy about sexuality, and somewhere along the way “feminism” got itself about a dozen different conflicting definitions, depending on the person using the word.Watson and her “Beast” co-star Dan Stevens talked about the fuss in a Reuters interview, where Watson was “quietly stunned.” Stevens was confused as well. Anyone who doesn’t think women should have equal representation and treatment should get their own special term.Want more stuff like this? why oh why am I not taken seriously… feminism… gender wage gap… It’s about freedom. oh, and here are my tits!””To be fair, many people were supportive of the image — or didn’t care at all until Watson was attacked for it — but the “Beauty and the Beast” star was completely taken aback by the idea that she would be considered a bad or non-feminist for posing for this photo:Maturing from Hermione to Belle in @beautyandthebeast is a true coming-of-age story for @EmmaWatson: “I couldn’t care less if I won an Oscar or not if the movie didn’t say something that I felt was important for people to hear.” Read the full cover story at the link in bio. Like us on Facebook. It’s very confusing.”Watson previously talked to Entertainment Weekly about the problem with the term “feminism” itself because it sounds pro-women, and that leads many to think it’s anti-men:”I think the word is really difficult because it seems to inherently address a preferential treatment of the feminine over the masculine because it has the feminine in the word, and I think that’s a real oversight and misunderstanding. Watson argued:”Feminism is about giving women choice. Emma Watson has a pair, and she showed a bit of side and under-boob in a Vanity Fair photo that got some folks talking.A magazine posed the question, “Is actress and feminist Emma Watson a hypocrite for going topless in Vanity Fair?” since fans had commented things like, “#hypocrite, lost respect for all your work. It’s about liberation. This is just everyone deserves a fair chance.”At this point, we might just need an entirely new word. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. Don’t give men and society what they want. I really don’t know what my tits have to do with it. Complete opposite of what you preach. Posted March 6, 2017 by Gina CarboneBoobs! Why couldn’t she be a feminist and also have boobs? People love ’em and hate ’em and can’t stop judging ’em. It’s about equality.
His character was written out of the show in the March 5 episode, Season 8, Episode 16, “Old Tricks.”Granger had been stabbed and was at the hospital, but when Hetty (Linda Hunt) went to check on him, he was gone.

That’s how many feel about actor Miguel Ferrer, and that’s what they can continue to feel about his “NCIS: Los Angeles” character, Owen Granger.Ferrer died from throat cancer in January, at the age of 61.

Doesn’t the irony just wash over you like an acid bath? Your questions don’t matter, and what you put out is not real. So I joke and say, “If they ever want to do a flashback to before the zombie apocalypse in an air conditioned room, I am the girl to call.” But as long as they’re in the woods with soot and dirt on their faces in the summer time, I’m going to have to pass.Super polarizing season this year.It is!What side of the pole are you on?I have always been someone that affords a creator the opportunity to create the show that they want to make. I watched everything. You could do better, because we don’t do that here. “The baby bakes? That’s what someone said on Twitter. And if you were rotten, he let you know you were rotten, and you didn’t have to be that way. You knew he was multi-talented, but what’s been happening lately …Listen, if you Google me talking about Donald Glover as far back as 2009 or ’10, I have said this from the beginning: I have never met anyone more talented in every creative endeavor than Donald Glover. I thought that was a perfect way to say it. So the first thing I try to see is, is this someone that is reachable? When they yelled cut on “Community,” Donald went and sat in front of his computer and wrote a song, or went and sat in front of his computer and wrote a script, or did a treatment. My heart broke. I can get out of the car, but I don’t get to ride in someone’s passenger seat or back seat and dictate where they’re taking me. I never thought that your vocation or your profession prevents you from speaking up about things that grieve your spirit.I believe that you are given a platform to use responsibly. So I look at acting as an opportunity to say, “What can I give to people today?”I think of my Twitter page the same way. What’s cool about that for you?You know what’s cool about it is I always think of acting as an offering. And he created sets with lovely, wonderful people for that reason.I felt his loss stronger in certain instances than some family members that I lost, because there’s not a time in my life where he wasn’t a part of it. I feel like those of us that have watched the show from the very beginning, we’ve seen entrails out of people, we’ve seen bloated walkers in wells, we’ve seen people literally ripped to shreds. There’s a lot of people that get a pass for bad behavior because they’re talented, and this industry rewards bad behavior, and you see people that are horrible just continue to get opportunity after opportunity. He can dance, he can sing, he can draw, he can bake, he can write, he can rap. So it’s very evenly measured. That’s the first time this season we’ve held on to 100% of our lead-in. Let’s redo all of this. When they yelled cut on “Community,” I went to the craft services table, as anybody who watched me balloon on that show will know. They are telling their story, and I as a fan do not have a right to dictate the ride they take me on. That’s not saying they can’t open up a book, Google a reputable news source and find out, they just don’t know. There’s actually a video of me talking to [TV Line’s] Michael Ausiello where I cried like a baby through the whole interview about Garry. I feel like there’s a lot going on in the world, and if I can be a part of something that makes people forget something at their job, or something in politics or whatever, for 30 minutes, what a gift that is. All she just needs is some more quality time with Oprah.For the self-admitted super-enthusiast of all things entertainment, Brown’s got just about all her bases covered: she’s a prominent network TV actress (see the insta-classic sitcom “Community” and the current incarnation of “The Odd Couple”); she’s turned her addiction to “The Walking Dead” into regular guest spots on the aftershow “Talking Dead”; she put her red carpet reporter hat on to host the Hollywood Foreign Press Association official live stream of the Golden Globes red carpet; and she just added a regular role on “SuperMansion” to her flourishing voice actress career — which includes stints as Beyoncé on “Bojack Horseman” and Amanda Waller on “DC’s Super Hero Girls.”She’s the ultimate fusion of star and fan, as she reveals in a wide-ranging conversation with Moviefone that includes her thoughts on her ongoing projects, her take on the current season of “TWD,” her outspoken Twitter account, the long-apparent genius of Donald Glover, her lifelong love for the late Garry Marshall, and why she needs a real sit-down with the Queen of All Media.Moviefone: When the Stoopid Monkey guys called you for “SuperMansion,” were you already a fan, or did you have to check it out?Yvette Nicole Brown: I was already a fan. The hosting and the “Talking Dead” is me taking. I’ve had the, “Hi, I’m Yvette, I love you” moment, but I want to have a sister-girl sit-down, fry-some-chicken, talk-about-life moment, and I hope one day I achieve enough where I can get that invitation.One of the things I love about you is that you are a fan as much as you are a pro.I am a fan more than I’m a pro.Tell me what’s happening inside your head in a case like this, as in some of the other things you do where you’re living out the fan dream, when you get to show up thinking “I’d pay you guys to be here.”I actually hosted the Golden Globes red carpet for the Hollywood Foreign Press and Twitter and I had a moment where it was like, “I need to cut somebody a check. The only person I can think of that even comes close to his level of caring for other people is Henry Winkler. I knew something was wrong when he told his followers not to watch the DNC. Because if they’re reachable and they just don’t know, then I’m going to try to share what I can to pull them back from the brink.But you’ve got someone in power working against that by calling news fake, and vilifying journalists, and saying that anything that is said that doesn’t come from this source is not true. I think he’s a good egg and will remain a good egg until the Lord calls him.Tell me about being an actress, and being Yvette on camera, too. I’ve never felt that your vocation prevents you from being American. It’s me getting to talk about television shows that I absolutely love. I’ve talked to Greg Nicotero and Scott Gimple about being a walker. When we were there first season, and he brought in sweet potato pies, little mini pies that he had made himself? He was simply the best that there was. This right here …” Or refuse the check they give me, because this is my childhood dream come true.I’m interviewing Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn and Tracee Ellis Ross and Octavia Spencer and Donald Glover. I got a call about an audition. That’s why I’ve been begging to everyone, I’m like, “Guys just watch these last three. So I watched the RNC. Then to get to work with him, and he was lovely, funny, and an encyclopedia of sitcom info.When he did the episode he did with us, getting to act with him was amazing because he’s got little tidbits: “When you cross, you make sure you ring the doorbell, then knock on the door — it’s funnier.” And sure enough, if you rang the doorbell and then knocked, the crowd went “Yaaah!” It’s like he understood the math of how a joke hit someone in the funny bone. It’s me as little Yvette from east Cleveland being around people whose work energizes me. So we needed to take Oprah to, like, crazy town. The reason that episode, the first episode, destroyed as much as it did, was because it was someone that we had been with from the very beginning, and it happened to him.But we’ve seen violence equal to, or at times worse, than what we saw in that episode. As a black woman, a double minority, who would I be if I did not speak out against that evil?And I don’t care what office he’s in. How do you handle that?Most of them are ignorant — and I didn’t say “dumb,” I said “ignorant.” They don’t know, and a lot of them don’t know that they don’t know. I think I could probably be a walker. Because this is a man that has the most power in the world telling the people that are going to keep him in check “You don’t matter. Garry treated you exactly the same and it was with love and kindness. I give and I take, and I hope that I give in the same measure that I take so that the scale stays balanced.You, of course, are a well-known “Walking Dead” superfan. Because I don’t want it if I didn’t earn it, and I definitely don’t want it if somebody wants me because it benefits them, and that person is possibly a war criminal.”You guys don’t know yet about the future of “The Odd Couple”?We don’t. I watched every minute of it. I’ve watched every debate from all of the parties. That’s just rude.So I thought that the first episode was brutal, but I felt that in order to pay homage to the comic book, it had to be. I love stop-motion animation, so they had me with that. He’s not the best of America. I love entertainment, so at every point in my life, there’s a Garry Marshall moment, a Garry Marshall memory. It is my sincere prayer that he will get better. You add in Bryan Cranston and Keegan-Michael Key, I’m sold. My heart broke when he did what he did to that CNN reporter. You’re straddling both worlds now. I don’t care if you were a street sweeper, or President of the United States. So I’m not going to tap out because a show about zombies is violent. That’s how you make a decision.So if all you hear is one side of a story, and you have someone saying, “My side is the truth, but that person is lying,” how will you know? Donald deserves every opportunity he gets because he’s still a decent human being.I don’t think being Lando Calrissian is going to change him. He was like, “I’ve got too much. And listen, we did the best we could, CBS did the best they could, Nielsen numbers count. I believe that my group is going to find themselves again and come together, and fight back this evil as they always do, and I’m going to be on my couch watching it when it happens.At the Globes, Meryl Streep made a sensation, and you yourself have been outspoken on Twitter about politics.I find it ironic that Donald Trump is someone who used his celebrity platform to actually end up in the highest office of the United States of America, and yet actors shouldn’t say anything?Isn’t that interesting? I think Matt into Matthew [Perry] would have been a really great opportunity for our show. To get to talk to a couple of my friends, hours before they got their first Golden Globe, and to know that that moment of anticipation and excitement is saved forever, and me getting my chance to wish them well publicly is saved forever, there is nothing greater.Let’s talk about one of those friends, Donald Glover, for a second. No time is wasted. You knew he was talented. So then it got kind of morphed into more of a mixture of Oprah sensibilities and wanting to help people, but then just a wacky black womanHave you met Oprah?I have met Oprah, but I haven’t metOprah. I believe the second half of this season is going to be amazing. Because you’re saying things about me that I don’t like.”If he was a decent man, and he heard that a foreign power had intruded in our electoral process, and he cared about this country, he would say, “Stop everything. I’ve got to get it out.” So he’s the truth.And the thing that I always say about him, too — and I know I gush about him a lot publicly, but I’m so proud of him — he’s also a good man. And I did her kind of like in reference to Oprah at first, and then the more we recorded, we realized how crazy she is. I hope that’s what I brought.Did you have to think, “Do I do it mostly in my own voice? I am fully aware of every single person that ran. I don’t know why it never happened.Did you get to have many encounters with Garry Marshall before we lost him last year?I did. My only thing is, I’ve done prosthetic work before on “Percy Jackson,” and it’s very long hours, and they shoot in the summer in Atlanta, and I’m a girl that likes comfort! Or is it too meta?It probably is too meta! Looks like the baby bakes, too.”There’s nothing that he can’t do, and also, he’s very efficient with time. Every time Portia came to the scene, or Zenith came to the scene, I wanted them to know that it was going to be crazy fun. The two of them are cut from the same cloth.This, in my opinion, perfectly encapsulates who Garry Marshall was: he said, “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.” And he lived that. And I also am not going to tap out before I see the person that caused the violence get their comeuppance. Once you got a sense of the role, and you knew the show already, what did you want to bring your contribution?I wanted her to be wacky, unpredictable, and fun. Posted March 6, 2017 by Scott HuverYvette Nicole Brown may be living her best life. No idea. No, we have no idea. I don’t use it to take; I use it to give. Or do I put on a weird cartoon voice?”I think I was thinking “talk show host,” and she has to have gravitas, and she has to have an Oprah way of speaking. I’m not saying he can’t be better. Do you think they’ll ever let you on the show to act? I don’t think being a Golden Globe-winning show creator and actor is going to change him. I try to do everything in my life with love, with kindness, and with care. If you’ve never seen the show, please tune in.”They put us behind Matt LeBlanc’s show and we held on 100% to his — and he was a rerun, and we held on to all of it. We literally will find out in May, and they have us until June. I respect Robert Kirkman, I respect Dave Alpert, I respect Scott Gimple, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero. I don’t know if he sleeps now, there was a moment in time where Donald wasn’t sleeping. I think people think there’s some glamorous world where people just get calls going, “We need you on set tomorrow, darling!” No, it’s, “Would you like to audition for ‘SuperMansion’?” “Yes I would.” So I auditioned twice, and I got the nod.What did you want to bring to it? When the nation is confronted with someone who mocks disabled people, who assaults women, who vilifies religion — certain religions — and vilifies certain races and ethnic groups, who tears down the family of a soldier who has passed away, who’s called women pigs, and dogs. But I’m saying what I’ve seen right now, as long as it stays like this, as long as I’ve got air in my breath and Twitter followers, I don’t care if it’s five of us by the time I’m done, I will continue to speak about the things that are not the best of us.As a celebrity that’s very wired into social media, you’re a bigger target than me when people disagree with you.
But as The Fresh Prince used to say, ‘Parents Just
Don’t Understand’. The head of the fish is given to Pedrico (strange that this
is the first mention of him) and the other fishermen ask
Manolin to send their glad tidings to the old man. Santiago realizes he’s
still unlucky. Because, like many men his age, Santiago
has difficulty expressing his emotions and fears with words –
instead giving in to base desires – and imposing his
gigantically terrible positions on any given subject through
unblinking violence. Wade Wilson’s Cliffs Notes take on “The Old Man and the Sea,” ending with a nod to Red Lobster.Here’s the full text, transcribed by Comicbook.com but showcased in its originally format:The Old Man and the Sea is the story of a fight between an
elderly, accomplished fisherman, Santiago, and a really big
fish. Which isn’t really all that fair. It was just hanging out one
day, minding its own business, maybe thinking about ways it
could be a better provider for its family and WHAM! Who’s the “dream killer” now, f*ckface? Posted March 6, 2017 by Gina CarboneDeadpool is no Superman, but Ryan Reynolds continues to be the king of meta marketing, and he’s also handy for an insightful analysis of Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea.”The first “Deadpool 2” teaser played before “Logan” in theaters, and a version was posted to Reynolds’s own YouTube page.Here’s what he tweeted:Anyone know the number to 911? He
fights and fights and fights but can’t pull the monster in. Like… Santiago’s leaky old boat is pulled by the fish for two days and
nights as he holds on for dear life. So he
stabs it. HUGE. Even though he’s bloody
and beat, Santiago begins to appreciate this mighty
adversary. The next morning a
group of fishermen gather around Santiago’s boat. It’s over 18
feet! By nighttime, the sharks have pretty much eaten the
entire marlin. And
like most romantic comedies, the reader pictures a delightful
outfit changing montage, followed by the inevitable
interspecies wedding. REALLY unlucky. One
measures the skeleton and, holy sh*t-shingles! I mean, the
sharks were just doing their job and the marlin… Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion),” “Zip it, Stan Lee!” the “Firefly” reference, the nod to “True Romance,” and the super-fast fine print at the end.What was in the fine print? Blood everywhere. Super gross. Many years later, there’s
a Red Lobster Restaurant in nearly every city in America,
offering a casual dining experience and convenient parking.Phew! On the eighty-fifth day of his
crappy luck, Santiago drops his lines, and by noon, gets a bite
from what feels like a big ass fish. He starts calling him “brother” or maybe even,
“bro.” It’s sort of a love story if you really think about it. Pretty soon sharks begin to attack the
bleeding marlin’s carcass, because we all know, life is a
tragic opera and just when you think you’ve finally found
something good and true, sharks come along and rip it all to
f*cking shreds while dry-humping your dignity with their
crazy-weird shark dicks. Harpoon
in the brain. Wilson. Manolin
brings Santiago newspapers and coffee when he wakes and
they decide to fish together again. With a f*cking harpoon. The next day, Santiago tells Manolin that
he’s going way out into the Gulf Stream. Like us on Facebook. But guess what? The
hypocrisy is pretty much boundless at this point. even by accident. So the boy visits Santiago’s shack anyway. Jesus,
don’t even get me started on the marlin! Well done for pointing out the hypocrisy and standing up for the sharks and the innocent marlin who probably just wanted to provide for its family.”Deadpool 2″ is expected in theaters in 2018. A-plus, Mr. Especially Joe DiMaggio; who used to bump fuzzies
with Marilyn Monroe. Eventually
Santiago makes it ashore. (Duh!) He calls the sharks
“dream killers”. Or, as they put it in the trailer, “Coming Not Soon Enough.”Want more stuff like this? Santiago was so unlucky that his
apprentice, Manolin, was forbidden by his Ma and Pa to fish
with him. Only a bleach-white skeleton remains, silently
mocking him in the murky darkness. Sure, Santiago tries killing a few of
them, but drops his harpoon because his hands are just as old
as he is. He’s sure it’s a winner. Typical. He makes it home and
crashes, like I said – he’s super tired. WAY OUT north of
Cuba. Anyway, he straps the marlin to
the side of his skiff and hits the road home, ready to act like
a total show off to everyone and probably gouge people on the
price. The story opens with Santiago suffering
eighty-four days without catching a fish because he’s the
unluckiest son-of-a-bitch on planet earth. It’s a mess. Ignoring the inherent risks of unsupervised playtime with an
elderly man who talks to himself, Manolin helps out, moving
Santiago’s fishing gear, making food and talking about
baseball. No Good Deed https://t.co/HyfsFn48Vl
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 4, 2017The YouTube video synopsis has its own meta reference to the “Sisterhood” of Reynolds’s wife, Blake Lively, as well as “Murder She Wrote”: “Wade and the other girls from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants plan a trip to Cabot Cove.”Watch the teaser:In theaters, many fans who didn’t expect to see Deadpool were thrilled when Wade pulled his hood down, and continued to be thrilled through “St. Lady luck is returning! But on the third day, Santiago is
freakin’ EXHAUSTED, and decides he just wants the fish to do
what he says and not always swim wherever it wants. Leaving the bones of the marlin and
the boat, he hobbles to his shack. Honestly, if you
were in a boat for eighty-four days, it’d be hard to NOT catch
The indie studio expects the coming-of-age drama to be the highest-grossing film in its history. The faith-based drama stars Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer and cost $26 million to produce. The low-budget thriller racked up $26.1 million, bringing its domestic haul to $75.9 million. That pushes the Lego spinoff’s box office total to $148.6 million and gives the John Wick followup a domestic gross of $83 million.Fresh off its best picture win, A24’s “Moonlight” grossed over $2.5 million and crossed the $25 million mark. Posted March 5, 2017 by ReutersBy Brent LangLOS ANGELES, March 5 (Variety.com) – “Logan” tore into the weekend box office, opening to a massive $85.3 million and proving that moviegoers will show up in force for R-rated comic book movies. Like “Deadpool” before it, “Logan” demonstrates that adults will turn out for tentpole fare that is bloodier and more profane than your average X-Men movie.”Logan” was produced by 20th Century Fox and cost $97 million to make. That said, “Moonlight,” which focuses on a young man growing up gay in Miami, is one of the least widely seen best picture winners, trailing the likes of “Spotlight” ($45 million, domestically ) and “Birdman” ($42.3 million, domestically). The superhero spinoff marks Hugh Jackman’s last turn as Wolverine after 17 years of donning the adamantium claws.As the movie business grows more saturated with stories about costumed vigilantes, studios are trying to find ways to differentiate their own comic book adaptations. James Mangold, who previously collaborated with Jackman on 2013’s “The Wolverine,” directed the movie and co-wrote the screenplay. It has grossed more than “The Hurt Locker,” the 2009 victor that made just over $17 million stateside.Bleecker Street’s “The Last Word” opened to $35,620 in limited release. Set in the near future, it follows Wolverine and an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart), who leaving their hiding place on the Mexican border to help a young mutant (Dafne Keen). Critics embraced the film, hailing it as a comic book movie with bite, with Variety’s Owen Gleiberman writing that “Logan” “…brings the saga to a satisfying finish.”Despite “Logan’s” dominance, Blumhouse and Universal’s “Get Out” kept going strong. That’s an impressive return for a film that cost less than $5 million to make.Lionsgate’s “The Shack” took third place, earning a solid $16.1 million in its first weekend in theaters. The story of an aging businesswoman (Shirley MacLaine) who enlists a writer (Amanda Seyfried) to pen her obituary, screened in four locations last weekend. “The Shack” centers on a man (Sam Worthington) whose religious beliefs are tested following a family tragedy.Warner Bros.’ “The Lego Batman Movie” and Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” rounded out the top five, earning $11.6 million and $4.7 million, respectively.
Of course, this is Hollywood, so never say never, but if the two stars really are hanging up their mutant superpowers after 17 years, it’s no wonder viewers would want to take advantage of their last chance to see them ride off into the sunset.Again, not every superhero movie is poised to take advantage of such an event, but franchise finales tend to draw fans out to theaters. Posted March 5, 2017 by Gary SusmanThis weekend, “Logan” proved how much the game has changed for superhero movies.A few years ago, no one would have made an R-rated “X-Men” movie, aged the characters well into their Social Security years, premiered it at the Berlin Film Festival, and released it in March — under a title that does not have the words “X-Men” or “Wolverine” in it.And yet, here we are, with “Logan” opening the first weekend of March with an estimated $85.3 million, boasting the best debut for a “Wolverine” film and the fifth-biggest debut ever for an R-rated film.Here’s how “Logan” defied the odds, the competition, and the old rules of superhero filmmaking.1. That helped attract the older audience necessary to make “Logan” a hit. Audiences agreed, giving “Logan” an A- CinemaScore, a grade that indicates very strong word-of-mouth.3. That’s what the “Logan” team did last month at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival. #OneLastTime for WolverineNo doubt many X-fans went to see “Logan” because it’s been widely touted as the last film in which Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart will play Wolverine and Professor X. You don’t want to miss your last chance to see Wolverine slash his enemies — or at least, your last chance until some new star takes up the adamantium claws. According to exit polling, some 83 percent of the audience was between 18 and 44, the demographic sweet spot that most movies would kill to hit. Granted, making an R-worthy movie isn’t going to be the answer for every superhero (please, Warner Bros., no one wants to see an R-rated Superman), but at least some spandex-clad stars are ready to grow up.2. Great Reviews”Get Out” proved last week that, if a genre movie is good enough, cultivating critical raves (say, through festival screenings) is a smart tactic. The result was a worldwide shower of positive buzz, leading to strong reviews — 93 percent “Fresh” at Rotten Tomatoes. Fans Love R-rated Comic Book MoviesFew superhero films go beyond the PG-13 rating, either because of their family-friendly comic-book origins, their fear of excluding potential young ticketbuyers, or their desire to protect a brand that depends heavily on merchandising to kids.But Fox’s “Deadpool” proved last winter that, not only is the R rating no impediment to box office success, it also satisfies the clamor of an adult fanbase, one that’s big enough to replace all those under-17 kids. You Can Open a Summer Movie in March In the last few years, March has seen some of the biggest hits of a given year: 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland,” 2012’s “The Hunger Games,” and 2016’s “Zootopia” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”This March, “Logan” is just the opening salvo in a month that will see “Beauty and the Beast,” “Kong: Skull Island,” “Power Rangers,” “CHiPs,” and “Ghost in the Shell.” In earlier years, these would all have been summer releases, but now, they’re the sort of movies that make March worth nearly 10 percent of a year’s box office total.4.
