THE MARVELS debuts on top this weekend with $52 million from 4,030 theatres for Disney/Marvel. It gets 62% on the Tomatometer from Critics. While this is a success, this would be the lowest debut in the MCU, with 2008’s The Incredible Hulk opening with $55 million.
In second is FRIDAY NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S with $9 million from 3,694 theatres for Universal Pictures. Over three weekends, the Horror has earned $127 million domestically.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do (Taylor’s Version)’ has been revealed as the song of the opening titles for UK Original thriller series Wilderness. The re-recorded track from Reputation makes its global debut in the series teaser released today. Wilderness will launch globally on Prime Video on 15 September, 2023.
The defiant ‘Look What You Made Me Do (Taylor’s Version)’ reflects Liv’s (Jenna Coleman) transformation after her supposed “happily-ever-after” quickly turns into a living nightmare on discovering her husband Will (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) is having an affair.
Liv becomes the actress starring in Will’s bad dreams after she learns about his betrayal, and her heartbreak is swiftly followed by another emotion: fury. The couple embark on an American road trip Liv’s fantasised about since she was little, from the Grand Canyon on through Yosemite, before ending up with a hedonistic weekend in Las Vegas. For Will, it’s a chance to make amends; for Liv, it’s a very different prospect—a landscape where accidents happen all the time. The perfect place to get revenge. Look what he made her do…
It was an incredibly star-studded second day of TIFF ’22 with various Premieres kicking-off around the City ahead of what will be a busy weekend with mega-watt power at the Festival. See who spotted around town premiering their Films and doing their rounds!
We started out day early with an appearance on CP24 Breakfast with Sonia Mangat! Sbe actually has a Short Film premering at the Festival! So amazing! Thanks to those who tuned-in and sent their supportive messages!
Such an honour being invited to this event in celebration of Gina Prince-Blythewood‘s film. The Cast really brought home the message of the importance of supporting this black female-led Action Film starring Viola Davis, on its opening weekend,at the #TakeUpSpace event presented by Twitter at Mademoiselle.
While we’re expecting to see more of the Cast tomorrow, how cool is this moment between Comedy icons Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow? Rogen is here for THE FABELMANS and reunited with his Knocked Up collaborator Apatow at this Premiere for BROS. So happy we met Joel Kim-Booster, who was seen this past Summer in FIRE ISLAND!
It’s 3 AM, time for bed and yet another early rise tomorrow! We were a little slow to start and hoping to get into our rhythm finally on Day Three. I know this sounds a little absurd since we had so many sightings but trust me, this even is a little off our usual pace. See you again in a few hours!
TIFF is thrilled to announce a special In Conversation With… Taylor Swift on Friday, September 9, at 7pm at TIFF Bell Lightbox as part of the 47th annual Toronto International Film Festival. Swift will introduce the first-ever screening of All Too Well: The Short Film on 35mm, and join TIFF CEO Cameron Bailey in an engaging conversation about filmmaking and the visual aspects of her music.
“We love the intersection of film and other art forms, and Taylor Swift is a brilliant visual thinker,” said Bailey. “We’re excited to hear Taylor’s version of how absorbing influences from cinema led to her creating All Too Well: The Short Film, which we’ll present in its original 35mm form for the first time at TIFF.”
Swift is a creative powerhouse. Singer, songwriter, producer, actor, director — this multi-hyphenate artist is the only woman in history to win the Grammy Award for Album of the Year three times, tying for the most wins by any artist (alongside Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Paul Simon), as well as earning prizes in eight other categories. In addition to music, Swift has long been a visual storyteller. From influencing the edits of her music videos, to writing the treatments herself and then making the jump to director, she has defined a distinct style that extends out of her songwriting. In 2021, she released re-recordings of Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version), her acclaimed second and fourth albums, as an act of reclamation and creative empowerment. The latter release was followed by All Too Well: The Short Film, which she directed, wrote, produced, and appeared in.
This year’s In Conversation With… series connects audiences and film lovers around the world with some of the most talented artists working today. The 2022 lineup includes award-winning actors and creators who have helped shape the discourse in the entertainment industry.
Tickets for this special In Conversation with… will go on sale to TIFF Members beginning September 3, with remaining tickets on sale to the public on September 5 at tiff.net/tickets. Industry pass holders and accredited press pass holders with public ticket allocations will be able to secure tickets in advance and on the day of the event.
Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift have teamed-up at long last on this gorgeous new version of “The Joker and The Queen” from Sheeran‘s latest LP “=”. Well if that doesn’t get you in the mood for love this Valentine’s Day, I don’t know what will! Sadly, our star vocalists don’t appear in the Video, but younger versions of themselves played by Ava James and Jack Lewis, do a fantastic job. Like watching a Movie!
