Although many Moviegoers are home this weekend for Super Bowl, that couldn’t stop KUNG FU PANDA from being Master at the Box Office. The 20th Century Fox release for a second week in a row remains on-top with $21.1 million from 3,987 theatres in its second week out. It has made $69 million domestically thus far.
Debuting in second is the star-studded HAIL, CAESAR! with $11.1 million for Universal Pictures from 2,232 theatres. Critics gave the latest effort from The Coen Brothers a 79% on the Tomatometer, with Audiences giving it a surprisingly-low C- CinemaScore.
Former champ THE REVENANT slips to third with $6.9 million for 20th Century Fox, pushing its tally to $149.5 million over seven weeks.
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS slips to fourth spot with $6.6 million, now in its eighth week out. To date it has made $905 million in North America.
Nicholas Sparks adaptation THE CHOICE opens in fifth with $5.7 million for eOne Films/Lionsgate Films. Critics gave it a 6% on the Tomatometer, but a much more promising B+ CinemaScore.

In this wild reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic tale set in the 19th century, scrappy martial arts specialist Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and the very wealthy Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) are true opposites — however, equally prideful and prejudiced.
But in the face of an unknown and dangerous plague, the two must cast aside their different social classes in order to deal with their tangled romantic relationship — and fight off an army of undead zombies.
PRIDE + PREJUDICE + ZOMBIES also stars Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance and Lena Headey.

I think most of us who saw CINDERELLA will agree that we were enchanted by Lily James. Be prepared to see her like you’ve never imagined in PRIDE + PREJUDICE + ZOMBIES. Murderous.
A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in this reimagining of Jane Austen‘s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield in order to conquer the undead once and for all.

As if Lily Collins’ Career couldn’t be getting any hotter, news has just surfaced that she’s close to sealing the deal to star in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. The Horror-Drama-Romance is based on Seth Grahame Smith’s Mash-up of the Literary Classic by Jane Austen. This of course has long been in-the-works with Natalie Portman once being attached to star, but after several delays Variety reports Burr Steers will direct.
Collins first will need to pass her first major test of Box Office bankability in this Summer’s The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. If this sizzling new Trailer is any indication how massive it will be, then the Hollywood’s A-List better click that “enter” key a few times to make some room quick for a new name.
