'Cinderella' grossed more than $70 million in North America. Interest in the movie was boosted by a 'Frozen' short that played before the film. Meanwhile, the Liam Neeson action movie 'Run' opened with only $11 million.
Neeson stars as a Brooklyn hit man, while Ed Harris portrays a mob boss and Vincent D'Onofrio is a veteran police detective. There's not a lot of fresh ground to this New York crime drama, but the movie offers simple, well-acted genre thrills.
Disney announced that 'Frozen 2' is moving forward and that the second new 'Star Wars' film, 'Star Wars: Episode VIII,' will be released in May 2017 and that Rian Johnson of 'Looper' will write and direct.
Actress Maggie Smith is great and Asian actors get almost as much screen time as white actors, but the India of this movie is essentially an ersatz confection – we see almost nothing of dire poverty or political distress.
Smith's movie 'After Earth' didn't perform well at the box office in the summer of 2013, and the actor says it hit him hard at first. 'Mr. July!' he said. 'No. 1! Eight in a row! All of that collapsed and I realized I still was a good person.' Smith stars with Margot Robbie in the movie 'Focus.'
The narrative of explicit and humiliating behavior in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' is helping to reset the mainstream base line for acceptable sexual behavior, with implications not just for adults but for children as well.
The movie's director, David Gelb, previously made the documentary 'Jiro Dreams of Sushi.' 'I was like, "Why is a food documentary filmmaker making a horror movie?"' Duplass said. '"This could be interesting."'
'I can't believe this is happening,' Best Actress winner Julianne Moore exclaimed backstage, while Best Actor nominee Steve Carell said he plans to 'play dark, complex characters from now on, even in comedies.' Here are a few more moments you didn't see on the telecast.
'Birdman' won the big prize at the Oscars, while its director Alejandro González Iñárritu took the Best Director prize. Actor Eddie Redmayne won the Best Actor prize for 'The Theory of Everything' and Julianne Moore won Best Actress for 'Still Alice.'
