    'Lego Movie 2' and 'What Men Want' To Lead Weekend Newcomers

    'Lego Movie 2' and 'What Men Want' To Lead Weekend Newcomers
    Following last weekend's poor showing at the domestic box office, February gets underway in earnest this weekend with four new releases including The Lego Movie 2 and What Men Want, both of which are looking at strong starts. Additionally, Lionsgate release of Summit's Cold Pursuit and Orion's The Prodigy will hope for solid starts, given their budgets, in the high single digits as all four new releases hope to be the top four films on the weekend box office chart. Looking at an easy #1 finish is Warner Bros.'s release of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, which will open in over 4,300 locations * including showings in 2D, 3D, IMAX, Dbox and more * with the studio anticipating a debut anywhere from $50-55 million. This projection mostly jibes with what we're seeing, with IMDb page view data trending similar to, or out-performing, comp titles such as Kung Fu Panda 3 and Hotel Transylvania 2.

    “It’s Like Having a Diary Shot by Someone Else of Moments That You Don’t Remember….”: RaMell Ross on his Oscar-nominated Hale County This Morning, This Evening

    Nominated for the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, and airing on PBS’s Independent Lens beginning February 11th (and now on iTunes), RaMell Ross’s Hale County This Morning, This Evening lives up to its buzz and then some. The award-winning photographer’s debut feature is a low-key, highly cinematic look at the Alabama Black Belt over a period of five years. In that time Ross trained his lens mostly on two twenty-something men, Daniel and Quincy, as they navigated education, blue-collar labor, fatherhood, and just the intricacies of daily life in their culturally rich, economically impoverished Southern town.
