the meg box office tracking

We’re going to need a bigger box office estimate. Jon Turteltaub‘s big-budget sci-fi horror movie that can essentially be boiled down to “Jason Statham versus a giant shark” has some giant problems of its own: lukewarm box office tracking numbers.

The Meg is tracking to open to roughly $20 million domestically — which barely takes a bite out of the film’s $130 million mega-budget.

THE DARK HORSE

Fear the Walking Dead returns for season 2 in just a couple of weeks, but before we get there, we’ll have the opportunity to see star Cliff Curtis in a very different kind of role, in a very different kind of movie. In the based-on-a-true-story drama The Dark Horse, Curtis plays a former chess prodigy in New Zealand. He’s released from a mental institution into the care of his brother (Wayne Hapi), and finds a new direction when he volunteers to help teach chess to underprivileged kids — including his teenage nephew (James Rolleston).

The building blocks of The Dark Horse sound more than a little familiar, but writer-director James Napier Robinson seems determined to steer away from easy sentimentality. Instead, he aims for a more grounded portrait of a complicated genius and the equally complicated people surrounding him. The Dark Horse has making the festival rounds for the past year and a half, and is now about to roll out into U.S. theaters. Today, just ahead of that release, we’re happy to share an exclusive clip from the movie. Watch it below.  Read More »

Set in Los Angeles, this new series will start with six episodes later this summer followed by a second season in 2016.
