#NEWMUSIC: CHARLI XCX – “BOOM CLAP” FROM “THE FAULT IN OUR STARS” SOUNDTRACK
Finally a Track worthing of being 2014’s SONG OF THE SUMMER! Those of you who already saw tear-jerking Blockbuster THE FAULT IN OUR STARS should find CHARLI XCX‘s BOOM CLAP oddly familiar, being featured prominently on its Soundtrack.
The sassy 21-year-old Singer/Songwriter from Stevenage has maintained a great presence on the airves laying down vocals on Smash Hits like Icona Pop‘s I LOVE IT and Iggy Azalea‘s Fancy. Now is her time to shine alone and what she has crafted on BOOM CLAP is phenomenal Pop Moment. Its melancholy-rebellion reminds of me High School, Bubble Gum Trident, Aerosol Hairspray and hiked-up kilts.

#BOXOFFICE: “THINK LIKE A MAN” WINS BATTLE OF THE SEQUELS AT THE BOX OFFICE
In yet another battle of the Sequels at the Box Office this weekend, Think Like a Man debuts atop the Box Office with a stellar $30 million from 2,225 theatres for Sony Pictures, just like its 2012 Predecessor did in its opening! Starring Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good and Regina Hall, the Comedy got little love from the Critics, tallying-in with 22% on the Tomatometer, but Audiences were more than forgiving, giving it an A- CinemaScore. The Film was made for $42 million and looks to be just one in successful Franchise.
22 Jump Street continues to perform impressively and just because it lands in second in its second week out, it by no means goes down shamed, only narrowly getting edged-out for top spot. It earns a fantastic $28 million from 3,306 theatres this weekend for Sony Pictures, as positive word-of-mouth continues to spread from Moviegoers for the well-reviewed Sequel.
In third spot this weekend is How to Train Your Dragon 2 with $25 million for 20th Century Fox. It inches in its second week close to the $100 million-mark already domestically.
Based on the TONY-winning Musical, Jersey Boys has a lukewarm opening for Warner Bros. with $13.5 million from 2,905 theatres. Reviews likewise for the Clint Eastwood-directed Film were mixed, earning a 55% on the Tomatometer and inversely, a great A- CinemaScore.
Maleficent finds itself in fifth spot with $12.5 million for Disney in its fourth week, now having grossed $185 million in North America.
The Fault in our Stars brings-in $9 million in its third week out for 20th Century Fox, just shy of the $100 million-mark domestically.
Chef rounds-out the Top Ten for Open Road/VVS Films with $16.8 million, now in its seventh week out.
#BOXOFFICE: “22 JUMP STREET” JUMPS AHEAD OF “DRAGON” IN BATTLE OF SEQUELS
NOTE: FINAL NUMBERS TO COME
It was a battle of the Sequels this weekend at the Box Office and prevailing just like its Predecessor was Sony Pictures’ 22 Jump Street which brought in $62 million. By comparison, the first Film in the Franchise opened back in 2012 with $36 million, this time around doubling its take. Critics have been kind, giving the Action-Comedy a great 83% on the Tomatometer, while Audiences also responded strongly with an A-CinemaScore.
A valiant second is How to Train Your Dragon 2 for 20th Century Fox, opening with $52 million at the Box Office! The Film which got a bit of a boost recently from Star America Ferrera‘s Red Carpet incident involving a Prankster at Cannes, got great reviews from Critics tallying 92% on the Tomatometer, and an equally strong A CinemaScore. Its 2010 Predecessor by comparison debuted with $41 million, easily besting the performance of that one.
Disney’s Maleficent continues to ride high in its third week with $20 million this weekend, normally enough for the number one spot some weekends, but good enough for third against the current slate of Blockbuster releases.
The Fault in our Stars opened atop the Box Office last weekend, but slips to fourth spot this weekend with $19 million for 20th Century Fox. It already has grossed $85 million across North America.
Edge of Tomorrow in its second week out accounts for the fifth spot at the Box Office with $16 million for Warner Bros., cumulatively earning $56 million domestically.
X-Men: Days of Future Past finds itself in sixth spot with $9 million for 20th Century Fox also in its its fourth week out, just surpassing the $200 million mark this week in these parts.
Chef rounds out the Top Ten with $2.1 million in its sixth week out in a limited number of theatres. To date, it has grossed $14 million.
#BOXOFFICE: “THE FAULT IN OUR STARS” TO BLAME FOR BOX OFFICE DEMOLITION
The Fault in our Stars certainly is to blamed for Moviegoers going teary-eyed this weekend. The Adaptation of the popular Novel by John Green opens to astoundingly positive response, earning a whopping $48.2 million from 3,171 theatres in its debut for 20th Century Fox. This shows that Audiences don’t necessarily need huge Blockbusters to go to the Movies in the Summer – just strong stories. Just two weeks back the Studio performed phenomenally with X-Men: Days of Future Past. Starring Box Office Princess Shailene Woodley and Newcomer Ansel Elgort, the Film earned an A CinemaScore and an on-par 82% from Critics on the Tomatometer.
Disney‘s Maleficent in its second week out performs strongly with $33.5 million from 3,948 theatres. It already is nearing the $130 mark domestically.
Edge of Tomorrow opens solid in third with a respectable $30 million from 3,490 theatres for Warner Bros. The Action-Fantasy starring Tom Cruise saw the Megastar travel multiple continents on a whirlwind Press tour in support of the Film which has received strong reviews from Critics (89% on the Tomatometer) and Audiences (B+ CinemaScore).
X-Men: Days of Future Past slips to fourth spot with $14.7 million in its third week out, edging closer to the $200 million mark in North America.
Godzilla finds itself in sixth spot in its fourth week out for Warner Bros., earning $5.9 million this weekend. It has grossed $185 million in its run.
Chef expands to 1,298 theatres for VVS Films/Open Road Films, just getting a Canadian release this weekend. It made $2.5 million this weekend, surpassing $31 million in North America.
Million Dollar Arm rounds-out the Top Ten with $1.5 million for Disney in its fifth week out.
#FIRSTLOOK: “THE FAULT IN OUR STARS” TRAILER
Although I had some doubts about it after first hearing of it being in production, I must say I am rather pleased with how promising this Adaptation of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS looks. One-part John Hughes-esque, one-part A Walk to Remember, this Romantic-Drama looks a bona fide Tearjerker.
Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them — and us — on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, based upon the number-one bestselling Novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.
