Barring Christopher Nolan taking on another epic tentpole franchise like his Dark Knight trilogy, it will likely be difficult for the director to top his opening weekend record, $160.8 million, set by The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. That tally was almost as much as the domestic total for his last film, the 2014 mind-bender Interstellar, which opened with $47.5 million en route to a domestic tally of $188 million, an international total of $487.1 million for a global tally of $675.1 million, from a $175 million budget. While the film performed well, it was down sharply from his last original film, 2010's Inception, which debuted with $62.7 million, en route to a domestic tally of $292.5 million, $532.9 million from foreign markets for a global tally of $825.5 million, from a $160 million budget. … [Read more...] about Will Nolan’s Dunkirk Be a Hit or Miss at the Box Office?

The 2015 blackout lasted from June 19 through August 23, which paved the way for the Chinese hit Monster Hunt to become the biggest movie in Chinese box office history ($385.2 million), while other local hits like Monkey King and Pancake Man earned over $150 million each. But last year, the blackout was lifted much earlier, due to a spate of underperforming movies, which allowed U.S. summer movies like The Legend of Tarzan, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, The Secret Life of Pets and Jason Bourne to be released in Chinese theaters. Some box office analysts thought the blackout lift last year could signal that the … [Read more...] about Spider-Man, Apes & Valerian Release Dates Delayed in China
According to a new report, which focused on Daniel Torrence boarding the project as a production designer, it's said the new Planet of the Apes movie coming from Disney will indeed be a reboot. As we reported in December, Wes Ball (The Maze Runner) is set to develop the reboot.

This could possibly be another full-on remake of the classic 1968 movie that launched the franchise. Tim Burton previously directed a remake which starred Mark Wahlberg and was released in 2001.
