The Host Not So Heavenly at the Easter Weekend Box OfficeIf Open Road was thinking it had the next Twilight on its hands with The Host, also written by Stephenie Meyer, it had better think again. The film had a disappointing $11 million, 6th place debut, a sure sign that it’s not the next hot young adult franchise everyone is scrambling to find.

Per Box Office Mojo, The Host‘s opening is about on par with what Beautiful Creatures grossed over its initial five-day holiday weekend run last month but is obviously a fraction of the first Twilight movie’s $69.6 million start. The audience was 78 percent female and 61 percent under the age of 25 (a bit younger than Twilight‘s typical crowd). They awarded the movie a “B-” CinemaScore, which pretty much ensures that word-of-mouth won’t improve things for the film, which we expect to drop out of theatres pretty quickly. Thankfully, it’s the last of its breed until August, when Sony releases The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

As for the remaining genre stragglers peppering the Top 10 this weekend who battled it out with #1 and #2 offerings G.I. Joe: Retaliation and The Croods, respectively, we had Oz: The Great and Powerful at #5 with $11.6 million (it’s total is now close to $200 million) and The Call at #7 with $4.8 million (just about $40 million total).

Next weekend is all about Evil Dead… will horror fans support the one remake we’ve seen in ages that’s actually worthy of a box office win, or will they opt for that other blast from the past opening April 5th, Jurassic Park 3D? Check back on Sunday for the results!

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead” is nothing short of a friggin’ gift for fans; and if you aren’t watching it, you need to fix that like yesterday. Teally… you don’t have much of an excuse. It’s on DVD. Blu-ray. Digital. Netflix. You name it!

Season 3 is just around the corner, and the good folks over at Arrow in the Head got themselves the first look at Ash and his bride-to-be, Candy, played by Katrina Hobbs.

Look for Season 3 to premiere on February 25th at 9PM ET/PT.

“Ash vs. Evil Dead” is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick; Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell co-star alongside newcomers Arielle Carver-O’Neill and Lindsay Ferris. Lee Majors returns as Brock Williams to warn Ash from beyond the grave.

The third season finds Ash’s status in Elk Grove, Michigan, has changed from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby’s fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn’t done with them yet. Blood is thicker than water in the battle of good vs. Evil Dead!
