Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu was released yesterday (September 15) amidst decent expectations. Simbu's previous release Maanaadu was a commercial success, and there was some hype for the Gautham Menon-Simbu-AR Rahman combo coming back together. The day 1 box office collection across India was Rs 8.35 Crore net and Rs 10.50 Crore net, as per early estimates. The film had some skepticism around it as well prior to release. The previous release of Gautham Menon received mixed reviews. The director himself had acknowledged the first half of Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta was his film, but the rest of the film went all over the place due to multiple reasons. However, the presence of writer Jeyamohan, a totally new landscape and distinct characters, did promise something fresh from the team. The film has been receiving mostly positive reviews, although there is some criticism as well. The film's post-climax scenes have not been received well. Gautham had … [Read more...] about Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu Day 1 Box Office Collection: Simbu’s Gangster Drama Opens With Decent Numbers

On a Friday night in New York, Harry Styles put on a show. It wasn’t just any show; it was the first time he performed his third and soon-to-be-biggest album, Harry’s House, in its entirety. The crowd that May night covered Long Island’s UBS Arena in feathers and glitter and tears — a ritualistic skin shedding of sorts whenever Styles comes to town. Fans noticed something different about the encore: Styles didn’t end with his usual closer, “Kiwi”; instead, he opted to finish the night with a second performance of his new single “As It Was,” his dance-through-the-tears pandemic reflection on isolation and change. When he played it, the crowd exploded in a way even Styles had never experienced. It left him a bit shaken. “We came offstage, and I went into my dressing room and just wanted to sit by myself for a minute,” he tells me, two months later. “After One Direction , I didn’t expect to ever experience anything new. I kind of felt like, ‘All right, I’ve seen how crazy … [Read more...] about How Harry Styles Became the World’s Most Wanted Man
Lewis Milestone’s 1930 classic All Quiet on the Western Front was based on the 1928 novel by Erich Maria Remarque and became the first adaptation of a book to win the Oscar for Best Picture, as well as the first Best Picture Oscar winner to also take Best Director. It has hardly been touched by filmmakers since then save for a TV movie remake by director Delbert Mann in 1979 that starred Richard Thomas. Now that has changed, and in a significant way, as the book has finally been taken on by Germany with director Edward Berger ’s ( Patrick Melrose, Your Honor) adaptation that finally shows us the perspective from the German side. It has already been selected as the German entry for the 95th Oscars’ International Feature Film race , and just had its world premiere Monday at the Toronto Film Festival. This Netflix film, which will also have a theatrical run, is a big-scale epic production that looks a lot more expensive than what it actually cost to make, … [Read more...] about ‘All Quiet On The Western Front’ Toronto Review: New German Version Of Classic WWI Novel Proves War Is Indeed Hell
The Viola Davis African warrior epic The Woman King — a flashback to the type of historical epics Columbia Pictures has had a long history of notching Oscars with– is looking at a $12M opening this weekend, per Sony, while rivals have it in the $13M-$16M range. While adults made their way back to the box office this summer, giving Top Gun: Maverick a $700M-plus stash and putting Elvis at $150.3M stateside, the question remains how they’ll come out a time when there’s very little on the marquee. The hope is that this Gina Prince-Bythewood feature about the Agojie — a unit of powerful female warriors in the Kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful states of Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries — will leg out and find crossover audiences, especially as awards season kicks in. Women over 25 and African American audiences poised to buy tickets. Coming off its Toronto Film Festival world premiere Friday, Woman King is at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes off 46 reviews. … [Read more...] about ‘The Woman King’ Eyes Long Haul At Fall Box Office After Hot TIFF Premiere With 100% Rotten Tomatoes – Weekend Preview
