Underworld 4

Underworld Awakening

Vampires are still on the menu when it comes to nice sized box office morsels, as Underworld: Awakening, the fourth film of the franchise, sunk its teeth in and made its mark on the weekend take, the film series, and January openings as a whole. The only of these lists Awakening‘s opening of $25.4m tops is chart for this weekend. That’s a return for the series, whose third entry, Rise of the Lycans, debuted in the #2 spot behind Paul Blart: Mall Cop, and who can really contend with Kevin James? I mean, really?


The Reject Report - Large

It’s a big weekend here at the Reject Report. Lots of excitement out there competing for you movie dollars. We have vampires battling werewolves, ace pilots taking on the World War II skies, and Gina Carano punching and kicking everything that moves and looking amazing doing it. Throw in the returning champs of Mark Wahlberg and 3-D Disney, and we’re sure to be seeing moneymakers all around town. The vampires have a slight edge, but there could be one or two surprises out there waiting to take the top spot. We could settle this with a flex-off between Wahlberg and Carano, but the demographics might be a bit skewed. Let’s take a look at what each of these movies has to bring to the box office instead.



What is Movie News After Dark? It’s not getting on that horse, that’s for sure. Instead it is here to bring you the big and the small, the best and the worst, the interesting and not so interesting movie news of the day. Then it will get on that horse and ride off into the sunset. Tonight’s lead image is actress Ruth Wilson. Get a good look, as you’ll soon be seeing her again. This star of BBC’s Luther and Masterpiece Theater’s latest version of Jane Eyre beat out the likes of Jessica Chastain and Abbie Cornish to win the leading lady part in The Lone Ranger opposite Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp.



What is Movie News After Dark? Hold on, it needs to finish this level of Angry Birds, then it will be ready. Alright fine, one more level. Seriously, just give it a second. God*^*% stupid pigs! Alright, anyway, time to do the news. Tonight’s top story: former Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel has been hired by Rovio to develop a film about the addicting mobile game Angry Birds. Apparently a game that has been downloaded over 250 million times has some sort of commercial appeal. Personally, I hate this idea. I thought Rovio made a great move partnering up with Fox on Rio and doing cross-promotion. It’s not a cinematic franchise, but I will buy a game with some Samba background music.



A fourth trip to the world of Underworld is in development. And while they don’t have a director, or a star just yet, they do have a writer.
