That’s where the specialized market finds itself after a successful four-month awards season. But those films, many of which are already streaming, are played out with not much gas left in the tank.
What will fill that void? So far, apart from some late-breaking modest foreign-language Oscar contenders (all lagging behind their predecessors) and minor initial interest in Sally Potter’s British import “The Party” (Roadside Attractions), now in its second week, the cupboards are bare. It looks like trouble at the arthouses until some fresh product opens and hopefully clicks.
“Young Karl Marx” (The Orchard) had a credible two-city debut this week, which is a positive sign. But it isn’t
This win for “Dunkirk” does not guarantee that it will take home the Oscar. Only 12 of the 24 winners with the Cas have repeated at the Academy Awards.

“Coco” won best sound mixing in an animated feature over “Cars 3,””Despicable Me 3,” “Ferdinand” and “The Lego Batman Movie.” And “Jane” claimed the documentary feature prize over “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” “Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars,” “Gaga: Five Feet Two,” and “Long Strange Trip.”
On the TV front, “Game of Thrones” won on the
“All women,” notes Lena, the lead character of Alex Garland’s new science-fiction film Annihilation, immediately before embarking on a dark and mysterious mission. Lena, played by the fiercely committed Natalie Portman, is one of five women heading into a strange disaster zone in the swamps of Florida dubbed “The Shimmer” in the hopes of understanding how it descended and is expanding upon the land. Annihilation, then, is a film largely about that quintet of women and how they struggle to cope with the mutations that they encounter within the Shimmer; it’s a haunting and...
The moment comes after they set out to visit Varda’s old friend Jean-Luc Godard, whose presence is a running theme of the film, but he stands them up with a tersely scrawled note on his window.
Godard had once famously taken off his sunglasses for Varda; she’d been wanting Jr to do the same. The pivotal scene comes at last — with the joke being that the...
Among those films that “Darkest Hour” edged out for best special makeup effects was “Wonder,” one of its two Oscar rivals for Best Makeup & Hairstyling. That film contended on the contemporary side here and lost its bid for hairstyling to “Pitch Perfect 3″ and makeup to “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2.” The third Oscar nominee, “Victoria and Abdul,” was snubbed by the guild.

While each of the five guild races has five contenders, members do not always nominate those films that made the shortlist for the Best Makeup & Hairstyling Oscar. Likewise, it often cites films that failed to make the cut with
In adjusted numbers, “Panther” ranks as the fifth best second weekend ever, behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Jurassic World,” “The Avengers,” and the first “Spider-Man.” However, it’s by far the best second weekend before May. While it dropped more than “Wonder Woman” last June, it “only” opened a bit over $100 million, about half as well as “Panther.”
Ten days in, “Black Panther” is $22 million behind the adjusted figure for “The Avengers” in 2012. But with its smaller second-weekend drop (“Avengers” fell 50 percent), it remains in the race to equal that film’s (adjusted) $706 million.
It only needs $619 million to top “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,

“Ash’s world is always going to go to shit,” Campbell adds in an Entertainment Weekly interview. “That’s what it’s all about. If Ash isn’t eating a shit sandwich, he starves.” As for whether the show will live to see another season, he says that “we won’t know till the middle of March. We’re in the horrible television limbo right now.”
The series began on the big screen, of course, and Campbell suggests that it could return. “If they take us off the air, we can think about another movie. And if they don’t, we can just keep plugging away.” It

“I didn’t know that. It’s insane,” a clearly surprised Iñárritu says when first asked about the situation. “Absolutely, I think so — unless the directors are considered criminals,” which they’re not. Syria will not expedite the travel visas of producer Kareem Abeed and star Mahmoud Al-Hattar, making it extremely unlikely they’ll be able to attend. “When we are banned,
This year’s winner — and, in fact, the first one since Reilly himself — is none other than Michael Stuhlbarg.
The oft-snubbed actor had supporting roles in “The Post,” “The Shape of Water,” and “Call Me by Your Name”; he was considered a potential Best Supporting Actor nominee for his lovely performance in Luca Guadagnino’s romantic drama, but those dreams, unfortunately, went the way of first love.
Prior to Reilly,
In the dense Netflix crime drama created by “The Killing’s” Veena Sud, the character of Kj definitely has no shortage of flaws as a prosecutor whose determination to get justice for a black teenager is held back by her struggles with alcoholism as well as the chaos that is the American legal system. It’s a complicated character that demands a complicated depiction: “If you are watching a fairy tale,

“Black Panther,” starring Chadwick Boseman as the king of a fictional African nation, now has a worldwide total of $704 million through Sunday — making it the 10th largest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having already passed “Doctor Strange” and “Ant-Man.”
The U.K. has led the way for “Black Panther” on the foreign front with $41.2 million, followed by South Korea with $36 million.
Russia opened this weekend solely in Imax/Deluxe formats with $2.6 million, close to the same level as “Thor: Ragnarok,” and opens wide on Feb. 26. Vietnam launched with $2.5 million, including previews, the fifth biggest opening weekend in industry history.
The best holds came in West Africa, where the gross rose 7% from the record-setting opening weekend. In South Africa, the second weekend declined only 4% and was the third biggest weekend ever, behind
Re your article on cases of plagiarism in Hollywood (Haven’t we seen it all before?, G2, 23 February), Groundhog Day didn’t rip off my screenplay but my 1981 novel One Fine Day. And in dismissing my complaint Judge Chin, in Arden v Columbia Pictures (7 December 1995), said: “I appreciate [Mr Arden’s] frustration at seeing his idea of a man trapped in a repeating day used without his consent, in a movie that grossed more than $70 million, not one cent of which he has received. Again, however, ideas are not copyrightable…”
The heartbreak is not that I didn’t get money but that I didn’t get credit. The problem is that copyright laws are not yet sophisticated enough to differentiate
