Well, it’s fair to say that this weekend has been very kind to last week’s solitary new release, the long-awaited Iron Man 3. We all knew it would make a whole bunch of money on its opening weekend—the only question left was just how much.
thewrap.com – Pixomondo will close its Berlin offices on May 31, the visual-effects company behind "Oblivion" and "Hugo" said on Facebook. CEO and founder Thilo Kuther did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but a message in German said the closure was part of a company-wide restructuring process. It said outstanding invoices would be honored. 1 year 47 weeks ago via brucelee

The weekend was very kind to last week’s one and only new release, Oblivion. Otherwise, the charts have remained more or less static since last weekend. Oblivion did quite well in the box office, making over $38.1 million; while this is at the bottom end of its predicted range for its opening weekend gross, it’s still a respectable sum, and the film can probably expect similarly impressive numbers in later weeks.

Joseph Kosinski Talks OBLIVION, Using the New Sony F-65 Camera That Shoots in 8K, IMAX, Filming in Iceland, and Future Projects
collider.com – Joeseph Kosinski's new Tom Cruise starrer Oblivion, opening tomorrow, is the rarest of all things, a big budget scifi film aimed squarely at adults. While the trailers might seem like they give away the whole movie, I assure you they only scratch the surface. Things get really weird and far more ambitious than the I Am Legend-style one sheet implies. 1 year 49 weeks ago via jackiechan
