Kong Reigns at Box Office; Get Out Continues to Roll

Kong: Skull Island was crowned box office champ this weekend with an estimated $61 million dollars over the March 10th-12th frame.

The total is a strong one for March, and would have been higher if not for the strong competition from last week’s winner Logan (which is currently over $152 million dollars after two weeks of release) and the critically acclaimed Get Out.   Logan made $37,850,00 in second place and Get Out came in third with a total of $21,072,600 in its third week of release.  Get Out also added 205 screens this weekend, quite a feat when you consider how many new releases are scheduled for March this year (and the success of the film probably accounts for the Belko Experiment’s recent screen count drop a week away from its debut to only 1,200 screens.)  At this rate, Get Out is almost certain to unseat Split as the number one horror hit of the year so far, with a current gross of $111 million and counting. read more

Wolf Creek Director Greg McLean’s The Belko Experiment Trailer Released

Ever wonder what it would be like to be trapped with your co-workers and supervisors in an office building indefinitely?  How about adding a little death and mayhem in the form of a Battle Royale-style “kill or be killed” game?  Well, wonder no longer!  From the minds of writer  James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) and director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) comes The Belko Experiment.

McLean spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the project stating that “Belko is an incredibly crazy script by James Gunn. There’s nothing else like it. Trust me. It’s a wild, wild movie. I’m so glad I got to direct it. James was great. We have a similar sensibility over the movies we like and the references we like. So, we clicked over those things. I think he’s a great writer, but he was great fun to work with, and really respectful of me taking over the project, and directing it.” read more
