THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE: SPONGE OUT OF WATER defies all expectations to soak-up the competition at the Box Office this weekend! The Animated Feature based on the internationally-popular Nickelodeon Series, debuts with a stellar $53 million from 3,641 theatres for Paramount Pictures. Critics gave it love with a 73% on the Tomatometer, while Audiences gave it an on-par B CinemaScore.
AMERICAN SNIPER after a decisive three-week-domination slips to second this weekend with a still-great $22.7 million, bringing its total domestic gross to $280.5 million for Warner Bros. Not bad at all.
JUPITER ASCENDING is being labeled a “bomb” by many insiders but its $18.4 million gross from 3,181 theatres certainly is far from a disgrace for Warner Bros. Internationally, the Sci-Fi/Adventure starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum, is expected to fare much better. The Wachowskis Film was made for $175 million and earns a 22% from Critics on the Tomatometer and a much-better B- CinemaScore.
SEVENTH SON debuts in fourth with $6.8 million from 2.785 theatres for Universal Pictures, after changing hands from Warner Bros. Plagued with several delays, the Film finally sees the light of day but even with a stellar Cast including Oscar-caliber names like Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges, it still only gets a 10% on the Tomatometer and a B- CinemaScore. It was made fr $95 million.
PADDINGTON continues to have a strong presence in North America with $5.3 million earned this weekend from 2,888 theatres for eOne Films/The Weinstein Co. In four weeks it is close to the $60 million-mark.
THE BOY NEXT DOOR rounds-out the Top Ten with $3.9 million from 2,193 theatres for Universal Pictures in its third week.
We’ve been waiting what seems like an eternity for SEVENTH SON and now Universal Pictures Canada and Mr. Will want to give Readers in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton a chance to see it first on Wednesday, February 4, 2015!
In a time of enchantments when legends and magic collide, the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order (Oscar® winner Jeff Bridges) travels to find a prophesized hero born with incredible powers, the last Seventh Son (Ben Barnes). Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom.

Universal Pictures Canada release SEVENTH SON on Friday, February 6, 2015.
Acclaimed British Actress Olivia Williams is among the Talent currently in Toronto filming David Cronenberg‘s latest Drama, Maps to the Stars. Tonight we spotted her returning back from a weekend Getaway at Lake Muskoka, impressively driving herself in her rented car, two hours outside the City. She was extremely lovely and humble, excusing her appearance not having any make-up on, before snapping a Photo graciously. Surely you will agree the Star of Films like Hanna, An Education, The Sixth Sense and upcoming Seventh Son, is absolutely stunning even without being made-up?
The Film, which just began production recently, already has seen several Members of its Principal Cast in town including John Cusack, Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska, who had the Tabloids and Entertainment Shows busy after she was spotted kissing Boyfriend Jesse Eisenberg last week here in the City. Robert Pattinson Fans have been awaiting updates anxiously about his arrival and the Twilight Star still has yet to be seen in Toronto.
Maps to the Stars, is said to be a scathing look at Hollywood’s relationship with Western Culture, filming in Toronto till mid-August.
Based on the Book by Jeff Delaney, Warner Bros. has just released this amazing looking Trailer for Action/Fantasy, Seventh Son.
In a time long past, an evil is about to be unleashed that will reignite the war between the forces of the supernatural and humankind once more. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges), the last of the Falcon Knights, had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), many years ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance. Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory. In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. He has only until the next full moon to do what usually takes years: train his new apprentice, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Man’s only hope lies in the seventh son of a Seventh Son.
Seventh Son also stars: Kit Harington, Djimon Honsou, Jason Scott Lee, Olivia Williams, Antje Traue and more; Sergey Bodrov directs.
