ABC to air special for The Story of Frozen!

Frozen will be telling their story once again! Except on a television.

Since September is a slow month for movies, it’s time to dive into TV, and to kick it off ABC is doing a special for The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic!

 

The special will go behind the scenes of the movie that made history! It doesn’t end there, surprises will be given on what’s to come, and previews for Big Hero 6 and Once Upon a Time.

 

Frozen has been becoming more and more popular ever since the film made over $1.2 billion at the box office and winning two Oscars.

 

Make sure to tune in tonight for The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic at 8/7c on ABC.

MPAA showing no mercy as names like ‘The Judge’ and ‘Fury’ are given R ratings.

Movies have been slipping through the cracks for many years, or studios demanding changes, it looks like some will pay the price with their high rating.

 

According to Box Office Mojo, The Judge, Fury, Nightcrawler, and Horns have all been hit with R ratings.

 

Out of all the names, The Judge getting an R rating is the shocking one of them all. Language has been a problem and a poison for many movies. For example, Jersey Boys looked like the perfect family movie to see, but thanks to the R rating it killed that, and now the film is barely at the break even point.

 

R ratings can make or break a film. 22 Jump Street shows that they can be successful, while some like Jersey Boys can be utter failure.

 

I myself believe an R rating poisons a movie’s box office and the movie itself, and it destroys the movie itself. Language, over the top violence, sex, it’s all not necessary to go out of your way to put it into the film. The Judge looked like a perfect PG film to take the family to see, now that just flew out the window, and there goes a good $50-$100 million at the box office.

 

Names like Fury don’t surprise me with R rating, since it is a war-film. I probably wont be seeing it, but I guess the rating is justified.

 

Let me know in the comments what you think.

Coming soon to DVD: Draft Day (2014 Film)

Draft Day will be available on DVD and Blue-Ray September 2, 2014!

One week from today, a sports drama film will hit the media market to prepare to have better luck, that being Draft Day.

 

Produced by Summit Entertainment Lionsgate, it is a story about a General Manager who must get the team the best players during the draft, and the struggle he has with his personal life.

 

The film did not really fair well in the box office, grossing only $29,462,046 against a $25 million budget. I myself have not seen the film yet, but I do plan on it once it is released on DVD.

 

I’m not sure what was the pros and cons of this movie, but since it is a sports drama movie, it may turn out good.

 

Kevin Costner is at the helm, and can really light up a movie. I cant wait to find out.

 

Draft Day will be released on DVD and Blue-Ray September 2nd, 2014!

Coming this week: The November Man

The November Man opens August 27, 2014

Opening this week is names that you probably are not familiar with, but may surprise you, that being The November Man.

 

Distributed by Relativity, it’s a spy thriller starring former James Bond character Pierce Brosnan.

 

The official plot reads: Code named ‘The November Man’, Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) is a lethal and highly trained ex-CIA agent, who has been enjoying a quiet life in Switzerland. When Devereaux is lured out of retirement for one last mission, he must protect valuable witness, Alice Fournier, (Olga Kurylenko). He soon uncovers this assignment marks him a target of his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason (Luke Bracey). With growing suspicions of a mole in the agency, there is no one Devereaux can trust, no rules and no holds barred. With a screenplay by Michael Finch & Karl Gajdusek based on Bill Granger’s novel “There are No Spies” from the bestselling November Man book series, THE NOVEMBER MAN is the ultimate cat and mouse game set in the world of international espionage. Directed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job, No Way Out, Thirteen Days), the film is produced by Beau St. Clair of Irish DreamTime and Sriram Das of Das Films.

 

The film opens August 27, 2014.

Box Office Results: ‘Guardians’ becomes biggest US hit of the summer!

Guardians of the Galaxy has now made its way back into first place!

In first, Guardians of the Galaxy took first place with an estimated $17.6 million, bringing it’s domestic over $250 million.

 

In second, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made it close but only got an estimated $16.8 million.

 

In third, If I Stay performed pretty well scoring an estimated $16.3 million.

 

In fourth, Let’s be Cops added an estimated $11 million.

 

Rounding out the top 5, When the Game Stands Tall scored an estimated $9 million.

 

The winner this week was most definitely Guardians of the Galaxy, who has been dominating since it opened. The loser was Frank Miller’s Sin City, which flopped at $6.4 million this weekend. The likely reason for the failure was because of the long wait and not so great marketing.

 

Well time to enjoy television for September, and wait in till October for some big names opening for movies!
