        'Lion King' Repeats at #1 While Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time...' Rings Up $40M Debut

        'Lion King' Repeats at #1 While Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time...' Rings Up $40M Debut
        While the weekend wasn't quite as large as anticipated, it was still the second straight weekend to top the same weekend last year. Leading the way for a second weekend in a row was Disney's The Lion King as it will soon top $1 billion worldwide, followed by a $40 million debut for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, serving as the director's largest three-day debut to date. Additionally, A24's The Farewell found a spot in the top ten playing in just 135 locations while both Spider-Man: Far from Home and Aladdin topped $1 billion globally this weekend. Disney's The Lion King found itself atop the weekend box office yet again, though it fell much harder than expected in its second weekend. With an estimated $75.5 million, the remake of the animated classic dipped -60.6% in its sophomore frame as the film's domestic total now stands over $351 million. While the

        Disney Has Already Broken Its Own Annual Global Box Office Record With $7.6 Billion

        • The Wrap
        Disney Has Already Broken Its Own Annual Global Box Office Record With $7.6 Billion
        The 2019 box office was predicted to be a year of Disney domination, and that has proven to be all too true as the studio has broken the all-time annual global box office record in just seven months thanks to Marvel films like “Avengers: Endgame” and its latest release, “The Lion King.”

        The previous record had also been set by Disney back in 2016, the year where Disney truly began to show off the power it had accumulated through its acquisition of several major franchises. Films like Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One,” Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: Civil War,” Pixar’s “Finding Dory” and Disney Animation’s “Zootopia” combined for the first ever $3 billion domestic year and a global annual total of $7.61 billion worldwide.

        But in 2019, Disney has blown by that total in seven months, but really in just four. Unlike in 2016, where Disney got off to a

        Benedict Cumberbatch Joins Voice Cast for Channel 4’s ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’
        Benedict Cumberbatch will lend his voice to “The Tiger Who Came to Tea,” the animated adaptation of Judith Kerr’s classic children’s book for Channel 4 in the U.K. The “Avengers: Infinity Wars” star will be joined by Tamsin Greig, David Oyelowo, David Walliams, and Paul Whitehouse in the Lupus Films-produced movie, which will be part of the U.k. broadcaster’s Christmas schedule.

        Kerr’s book was first published by HarperCollins in 1968. It tells the story of a tiger who arrives unannounced at a family home and proceeds to eat and drink everything in sight. Cumberbatch will voice the family’s father, Greig the mother, and Oyelowo the tiger. Walliams will be the narrator and Whitehouse the milkman. Seven-year-old newcomer Clara Ross makes her TV debut as Sophie.

        “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be playing a small part in bringing Judith Kerr’s timeless children

        China Box Office: ‘Nezha’ Breaks Animation Records With $91 Million Opening

        China Box Office: ‘Nezha’ Breaks Animation Records With $91 Million Opening
        Chinese animation “Nezha” broke local records with its $91.5 million opening, to be the second highest grossing film in the world over the weekend. It trailed only “The Lion King” on the global stage, though will quickly overtake the Disney title in China.

        An animated version of a classic Chinese tale, “Nezha” enjoyed $8.8 million and ranked fourth from previews over the previous weekend, before getting its official outing only on Friday. Its cumulative total at the end of its first official weekend is $103 million, according to data from consultancy Artisan Gateway.

        Directed by Yang Yu, who also goes by the name Jiaozi, or dumpling in English, the film claimed the opening weekend record for an animation film in China, far ahead of the $65.2 million by “Despicable Me 3.” With $32.7 million earned on Saturday, “Nezha” also claimed the single day animation record previously held by “Zootopia” in 2016.

        Some $7.7 million of that score

        When will the white rockumentary conveyor belt end?

        Blinded By the Light and Yesterday are essentially uncritical, feature-length promos for heritage bands, and there’s more to come

        If you only have a passing knowledge of the work of Bruce Springsteen, then let Blinded By the Light enlighten you. The film is an adaptation of Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir about growing up in racist 1980s Luton as a British Pakistani “whose life was transformed by the music of Bruce Springsteen”.

        It is also, unavoidably, a feature-length eulogy to, and advertisement for, the Boss. Springsteen’s music accompanies the emotional beats, his lyrics are projected across the screen, and his contribution to humanity argued in the strongest possible terms (“Bruce is the direct line to all that’s true in this shitty world”). If you don’t agree, you’re basically on the side of the skinhead racists and the conservative Muslim parents.

        Film Review: ‘Dora and the Lost City of Gold’

        Film Review: ‘Dora and the Lost City of Gold’
        Dora the Explorer was seven years old when audiences met her on television, a sing-songy polymath who traveled the map seeking answers and solving puzzles, accompanied by a big-mouthed backpack and equally loquacious monkey, Boots. Nearly 20 years have passed since the adventure show first aired (enough to cultivate a massive global awareness), but only 10 in Dora’s world, which means her live-action debut, director James Bobin’s “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” gives audiences of all ages the chance to see the character — whose unquenchable thirst for education knew no bounds — face the ultimate test: adjusting to an American high school.

        If that sounds like a pretext for a snappy, self-parodying TV-to-film adaptation — something in the vein of “21 Jump Street” or “The Dukes of Hazzard,” perhaps — think again. Yes, the movie is postmodern enough to acknowledge that there’s something odd about Dora’s penchant for breaking

        Bong Joon-ho’s Palme d’Or Winner ‘Parasite’ Pulled From China Festival

        Bong Joon-ho’s Palme d’Or Winner ‘Parasite’ Pulled From China Festival
        South Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite,” this year’s Palme d’Or winner, was canceled from screening Sunday as the closing film for China’s First Film Festival for “technical reasons,” making it the fifth festival film to run into trouble with Chinese censors this year.

        Parasite” is a violent, dark comedy about class conflict and greed that tells the story of a destitute family’s growing involvement with a very wealthy one. The first title from South Korea to nab the Cannes Film Festival’s top prize, it had been scheduled as the closing film for the 10-day festival in Xining, Qinghai province, which seeks to support new talent by focusing on Chinese directors’ first and second films.

        Festival organizers put out a statement on their official social media account the night before, saying: “The closing screening of ‘Parasite’ originally scheduled for July 28 has been canceled for technical reasons.

        Film Review: ‘The Red Sea Diving Resort’

        Film Review: ‘The Red Sea Diving Resort’
        “There’s so much to see and do in Arous,” read the brochure for a Sudanese vacation spot where visitors could go scuba diving amid reefs “made famous by Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Hans Hass.” Never mind that Sudan was in a state of civil war and no place for tourists in the early 1980s. European tourists came anyway, oblivious to the fact that the exotic getaway — rechristened “The Red Sea Diving Resort” for the Netflix film of the same name — was a front for a Mossad-run rescue mission: Israeli agents used Arous to smuggle Ethiopian Jews out of refugee camps to the coast, where offshore boats could ferry them to Jerusalem.

        The true story of this operation is so wild you couldn’t make it up — the kind of recently declassified real-life operation that savvy producers could conceivably pitch as a cross between Ben Affleck’s “Argo” and Steven Spielberg’s “Munich.

        Ken Burns on America: 'We're a strange and complicated people'

        Through war, baseball and music, Burns’ monumental TV documentaries have told the story of the USA – a mission he says is even more urgent in the age of ‘alternative facts’

        Many birthday presents are rapidly discarded or forgotten, but a gift given to a 17-year-old Michigan high-school student, on 29 July 1970, changed American television. Ken Burns received an 8mm movie camera, the first step on a path that made him such a revered figure in documentary film-making that, five decades later, his birthday this year will be celebrated with a whole day of his work on the PBS network.

        If 66 seems an odd birthday to be so honoured, it is because, on the more conventional landmark last year, Burns was locked away editing his latest eight-part, 16-hour series, Country Music, which airs in September. That work forms, with Baseball and Jazz, a loose trilogy about emblematically American sports and culture. Those

        ‘Red Sea Diving Resort’ Review: Chris Evans Still Playing the Hero Post-mcu

        It's hard for me to believe, since part of me still thinks of him as the local kid I heard about growing up who got cast in Not Another Teen Movie, but Chris Evans is the star of the biggest movie of all time. Not Leonardo DiCaprio. Not Sam Worthington. No, it was Evans' Captain America who recently led Avengers: Endgame to the ultimate box office crown. With the McU now firmly in Evans' rear-view mirror, it's going to be interesting to see what the future holds for him. I still don't think Evans is quite …

        Colony Capital Looking at Investment Deal With Wanda’s Legendary (Report)

        U.S. financier Colony Capital may be in negotiations to buy a minority share stake in Legendary Entertainment. The Hollywood production company behind “Godzilla” and “Pacific Rim” is owned by China’s Wanda group.

        Bloomberg reported Sunday that Colony had held talks with Wanda. It reported that Colony may use a new fund, Colony Media Partners, for the stake purchase, and that the implied valuation would be “significantly lower” than the eye-popping $3.5 billion that Wanda paid for Legendary in 2016. The participants in Colony Media Partners are not currently known.

        Bloomberg also said that Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund had shown renewed interest in Legendary, after apparently discussing a $700 million investment in 2018.

        Contacted by Variety on Monday local time, Wanda offered no comment. Representatives for Legendary also did not respond to Variety’s inquiries.

        Colony Capital, which is headed by high-profile investor Tom Barrack, previously bought U.S. mini studio

        ‘Once Upon A Time’ Scores Biggest Opening Ever For Quentin Tarantino

        ‘Once Upon A Time’ Scores Biggest Opening Ever For Quentin Tarantino
        Thank goodness for Quentin Tarantino and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” At least that’s exactly what the folks at Sony and film fans hoping for more original films are thinking. In a summer dominated by superhero films, remakes, and sequels (aka whatever Disney releases), Tarantino scored a big win for an original film with an R-rating this weekend. But of course, it still wasn’t enough to topple “The Lion King.” But hey, film fans will take what they can get.

        Be aware there are major spoilers for Veronica Mars Season 4 below. Seriously, if you haven't watched it, you want to stop reading. Again, Big Huge Spoilers below. Five years after the crowd-funded film gave fans a heavy dose of wish-fulfillment, Veronica Mars returned again on Hulu with the eight-episode Season 4. Wish-fulfillment, however, was not on the menu. Veronica's series-long sweetheart Logan Echolls is dead, so is Spring Break for that matter, and should the series get renewed for a fifth season, it's staring down an uncharted road that will follow …

        ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Is Off to a Good Start, But It’s Not Tarantino’s Best

        ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Is Off to a Good Start, But It’s Not Tarantino’s Best
        This weekend brought good, not great, results. With only two releases in the last 10 days (albeit both critically important), business was equal or slightly better than last year: Overall domestic box office approached $160 million.

        The Lion King” kept its #1 slot, though a 61% drop was higher than anticipated. Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” delivered about as expected, at just over $40 million in initial estimates. This time last year, we saw “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” gross $61 million. So in sheer numbers, Tom Cruise and his franchise had 50% more appeal than Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Quentin Tarantino. That shows the challenge original films face today, no matter how acclaimed.

        The year-to-date shortfall remains close to $500 million, or a little under 7%, and it appears that this summer will fall below last year’s total. It would take a surprise hit to close the gap over the next five months.

        What happens when you take an old horror movie, turn it into a $700 million worldwide surprise smash and launch a franchise? You get leeway, that’s what. “It” director Andy Muschietti has confirmed the rumored, epic runtime of “It Chapter Two” and it’s long, two hours and forty-five minutes long—essentially as long as “Avengers: Infinity War” was to compare to a recent blockbuster of that length.

        Why This ‘Veronica Mars’ Character Binges ‘Harlots’ on Hulu

        Why This ‘Veronica Mars’ Character Binges ‘Harlots’ on Hulu
        “‘Harlots’?”

        With that one word, “Veronica Mars” communicates volumes, most particularly its cheeky sense of humor. In the series’ revival, Veronica (Kristen Bell) returns home to find her current boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring) has been hanging out awkwardly with her ex-boyfriend, Leo (Max Greenfield).

        When the couple is alone, they relax to watch TV, but instead of Netflix and Chill, Logan suggests “Harlots.” This may not be the obvious viewing choice for a military intelligence officer. “Harlots” is Hulu’s period drama set in Georgian London and focuses on the war between two brothels. The series, which is created, written and directed by women, stars Samantha Morton, Jessica Brown Findlay, and Lesley Manville, among others.

        On the surface, this may seem like streaming synergy. After all, “Veronica Mars” and “Harlots” are both Hulu series. But if an in-brand plug was the point, then why not call out the streamer’s most prestigious series,
