City On A Hill: Kevin Bacon to star in new crime drama

David Crow Nov 14, 2017

Kevin Bacon will lead City On A Hill, a Showtime pilot from Ben Affleck about Boston crime in the 1990s...

In recent years, when one thinks of Boston, you would be forgiven if what springs to mind is crime drama. After all, Dennis Lehane has made a near cottage industry out of tough tales about tough guys in Dorchester or Southie, such as Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River. There was also Martin Scorsese’s The Departed and Ben Affleck’s The Town. Well Affleck and Mystic River’s Kevin Bacon want again to mine that lore while also reimagining a true crime saga for Showtime: City On A Hill.

Based on an idea originated by Affleck, who will executive produce, as well as fellow executive producer Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler), City On A Hill will return to Beantown’s not so glorious days in the 1990s,

WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights

WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights
September 2017 saw record returns with calendar grosses topping $695 million, falling just shy of becoming the first September to ever total $700 million at the domestic box office. Leading the way was Warner Bros. and New Line's massive hit It, which delivered record numbers of its own and accounted for over 40% of the month's total gross. September is also the first month since April to show an improvement over the same month in 2016, with September grosses finishing 18.3% higher than 2016. From a yearly stand point, 2017 was pacing 6.3% behind 2016 at the end of August and September grosses helped turn things around somewhat with 2017 pacing 4.6% behind 2016's record year by the end of the month. However, with October already pacing 20.8% behind last year (as of October 9) it's looking like September's gains will be lost throughout the current month, putting additional pressure on final two months of the year to turn the tide.Overall, September 2017 saw calendar grosses reach $696.2 million,

Jennifer Lawrence Condemns Harvey Weinstein: ‘My Heart Goes Out To All of the Women’

Jennifer Lawrence Condemns Harvey Weinstein: ‘My Heart Goes Out To All of the Women’
Jennifer Lawrence said she never witnessed any inappropriate behavior from Harvey Weinstein, but she nevertheless joined the chorus of actresses who spoke out on Monday about the mogul’s alleged sexual harassment of multiple women over three decades.

“I was deeply disturbed to hear the news about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior,” Lawrence said in a statement to Variety. “I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations. This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting.”

She added, “My heart goes out to all of the women affected by these gross actions. And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward.”

Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Kate Winslet and Glenn Close all voiced their disapproval on Monday of Weinstein’s alleged conduct.

Lawrence won an Oscar in 2013 for “Silver Linings Playbook,” which was produced by Weinstein.

‘American Assassin’ Screening Causes Chaos After False Reports Of Shooting
An audience watching American Assassin at Cinemark Theatre in the Woodlands, Tex. was shaken up after they thought they heard gunshots outside while the movie was playing. Fortunately, it was a false alarm as the gunshots were from the film itself. The Michael Cuesta-directed action-thriller starring Michael Keaton and Dylan O’Brien includes a number of scenes with violent gunfights. Apparently, the scenes were intense enough to have the audience panic. Some of the…

Can Blade Runner 2049 Dethrone It at the Box Office?

Can Blade Runner 2049 Dethrone It at the Box Office?
Thanks to three underperforming newcomers, the fall blockbuster It returned to top the box office with a paltry $17.3 million in the estimates, but when the actual numbers were released yesterday, it was actually far worse, with Kingsman: The Golden Circle coming out on top with $16.93 million, and It dropping to second with $16.9 million. Kingsman 2's two-week reign will most likely come to a close this weekend with Blade Runner 2049 hitting theaters, armed with a wealth of Blade Runner buzz and strong reviews, making it an easy choice to win this weekend, even while going up against a diverse slate of newcomers like 20th Century Fox's The Mountain Between Us and Lionsgate's My Little Pony movie. Still, the R-rated Blade Runner 2049 should have no trouble topping the box office with a projected $51.6 million.

Last month, the first box office projections put the Blade Runner 2049 opening weekend at north of $40 million,

Box Office Surge Ends as 3 Films Vie for Top Spot

Box Office Surge Ends as 3 Films Vie for Top Spot
New entry “American Made” (Universal) and holdovers “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” (20th Century Fox) and “It” (Warner Bros.). are basically tied at the top for weekend box office #1, with estimates placing all within $310,000. Any of the three could emerge on top when Sunday’s actual numbers are compiled after the weekend.

That’s good news for “It” in its fourth weekend (now headed even higher than the $325 million that seemed likely a couple days ago), more mixed for the opening of Tom Cruise’s latest film and the holdover for the expensive second release in the “Kingsman” franchise.

What is not good news is the sudden 20 per cent-plus drop in box office total revenues for the weekend. After three post-Labor Day stanzas where “It” propelled a strong resurgence that gave hope that the mediocre summer’s returns might improve, the current results suggest that the year will end down

It Returns to Top the Box Office with $17.3M

It Returns to Top the Box Office with $17.3M
The blockbuster Stephen King adaptation It returned to take the top spot this weekend, after being knocked off by Kingsman: The Golden Circle last weekend, winning with an estimated $17.3 million, followed closely behind by newcomer American Made in second with $17.01 million and last weekend's winner Kingsman: The Golden Circle with $17 million. With all newcomers expected to underperform at the box office this weekend, it was believed to be quite the close race, which turned out to be true, with the top three spots separated by just $300,000. Since these movies are so close together in today's estimates, it's possible, if not likely, that the top three movies may switch spots when the actual numbers are released tomorrow.

Box Office Mojo reports that the It remake dropped 90 theaters in its fourth frame at the box office, bringing its theater count down to 3,917, but it still earned a respectable $4,419 per-screen average, bringing its domestic total to $291.1 million,

Sanaa Lathan joins The Affair season 4

Shots Fired and American Assassin actress Sanaa Lathan has joined the fourth season of Showtime’s Golden Globe-winning series The Affair in a recurring role.

Lathan is set to portray Jenelle, “the tough-as-nails principal of the charter school where Noah teaches, who intrigues him. She’s got a lot to prove to her school’s oppositional administration and faculty, who seem to fight her at every turn.”

The Affair stars Dominic West, Maura Tierney, Ruth Wilson and Joshua Jackson as two couples whose marriages are destroyed by an affair. Season four is currently in production and finds all four characters alienated from one another, as they are all involved in new relationships and are forced to decide if they’re ready and willing to leave the past behind for good.

Box Office: Tom Cruise, ‘Kingsman’ Sequel, ‘It’ Battle for Top Spot, ‘Flatliners’ Flatlines

Box Office: Tom Cruise, ‘Kingsman’ Sequel, ‘It’ Battle for Top Spot, ‘Flatliners’ Flatlines
Universal’s Tom Cruise actioner “American Made,” Fox’s “Kingsman: the Golden Circle” and New Line’s “It” are all battling for the top spot at this weekend’s North American box office.

Estimates showed Saturday that all three movies were heading for around $16.5 million for the Friday-Sunday period amid moderate overall business. Sony’s reboot of “Flatliners” showed little life in its launch with $6 million at 2,552 locations, coming in below what were already modest expectations.

The opening of “American Made” is performing slightly above expectations, which had been in the $13 million to $15 million range earlier in the week. The biopic, playing at 3,023 North American locations, stars Cruise as pilot Barry Seal, who was recruited by the CIA to help take down the South America drug cartel after being arrested for smuggling in the 1980s.

'American Made' and 'Flatliners' Target Spots in the Weekend Box Office Top Five

'American Made' and 'Flatliners' Target Spots in the Weekend Box Office Top Five
As of the end of the day Wednesday, the month-to-date gross is less than $6 million shy of becoming the largest September ever. Much of the month's $620+ million is thanks to the record performance from It, which has grossed over $272 million domestically and $500 million globally. The month should become the largest September ever by the end of day today and this weekend offers one last chance to add to the total with new releases including Tom Cruise's American Made and Sony's Flatliners remake hitting theaters. Mojo's weekend forecast has the top twelve bringing in around $89 million, which would mean the month is likely to finish over $690 million, though just a bit shy of becoming the first September ever to hit $700 million. A pair of holdovers are likely to repeat atop the weekend box office beginning with Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which should pull in somewhere around $19.5 million, again finishing

Will Tom Cruise's American Made Fly High at the Box Office?
After New Line Cinema's It remake shook the box office out of its horrendous summer slump, it seems those glory days may be already over, with what looks to be a rather weak showing in theaters this weekend. Universal's American Made, Sony's Flatliners remake, PureFlix's A Question of Faith and Novus' Til Death Do Us Part will all be vying for the box office crown, along with an expanding Battle of the Sexes. But it seems like, despite a strong critical showing from American Made, Kingsman 2 will likely repeat atop the box office with a lukewarm $19.7 million, followed by American Made with $16.4 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that American Made will debut in roughly 3,000 theaters, while the Flatliners remake will only arrive in 2,200 theaters, although no theater count estimates were given for Til Death Do Us Part or A Question of Faith. Fox Searchlight's Battle Of the Sexes,

Dylan O’Brien Returns to ‘Maze Runner’ Franchise in First ‘Death Cure’ Trailer (Watch)

Dylan O’Brien Returns to ‘Maze Runner’ Franchise in First ‘Death Cure’ Trailer (Watch)
Salvation is the dominant theme in the action-packed trailer for “Maze Runner: The Death Cure.”

In the trailer, Dylan O’Brien’s character (Thomas) and his allies attempt to break into the Last City via train.

“You can’t save everyone,” he’s told by one of his friends.

“I can try,” he replies.

Later in the trailer, O’Brien has a confrontation with Patricia Clarkson’s cold-blooded Ava Paige character, who also tells him that he can either save his friends or he can save everyone.

Fox released the new trailer Monday, four months ahead of its Jan. 26 release. The film has been pushed back a year due to the need for O’Brien to recover from his March, 2016 injuries after an on-set car accident.

The movie — the third in the Maze Runner trilogy — is directed by Wes Ball. O’Brien’s character is on a mission to find a cure to the “Flare,” a
