Box Office: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Dominates With $40 Million

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Spy comedy “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is heading for a solid $40 million opening weekend at 4,003 North American sites, estimates showed Saturday.

The third weekend of horror blockbuster “It” continues to scare up impressive business with a projected $30 million at 4,007 locations, followed by the launch of Warner Bros.’ animated comedy “The Lego Ninjago Movie” with about $21 million at 4,047 locations — well under recent forecasts. Still, with three films over $20 million, the overall box office represents a continued rebound for the movie business following a dismal late summer.

Independent horror movie “Friend Request” is showing little traction in its launch weekend with an estimated $2.2 million at 2,550 venues. Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Stronger,” a biopic on Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, is opening with a moderate $1.6 million at 574 sites for Roadside Attractions.

Fox’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is performing in line with expectations, two years after “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” The sequel brings back original stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth »

“Han Solo” director Ron Howard on Saturday teased “shooting a scene about desperate and dangerous times in the Galaxy” and shareda new behind-the-scenes photo. The new photo appears to have been taken on a dusty surface, with a lot of what appears to be junk piles. Neither of these things is new to the “Star Wars” saga, but their appearance in the Han Solo film suggests a deeper look into the criminal underworld of the Galactic Empire.

If not, You’Re Fired. Find something else to do!” he tweeted Saturday. If a player wants the privilege. »

San Sebastian Film Review: ‘The Charmer’

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The visa-motivated courtship of convenience has been the subject of many a romantic comedy, though when you consider the bleak reality of the situation, it’s hardly a laughing matter: For one’s life and location to hang in the balance, determined by cold governmental paperwork and the fickle whims of a stranger’s heart, is a quandary likelier to end in despair than delight. “The Charmer,” an accomplished, deceptively titled debut feature from Danish-based Iranian filmmaker Milad Alami, treats the situation with anxious gravity, following an Iranian immigrant in Denmark as he trawls the singles-bar circuit in desperate pursuit of a ticket to remain. What seems a premise for an earnest social-issue drama is darkened and complicated, however, by a progressively noir-ish strain of morally elusive mystery — enhancing the international distribution prospects of a topical, tightly wound slow-burner.

A note of troubling discord is struck from the enigmatic first scene of “The Charmer,” as »
