'Skyfall,' 'Best Exotic,' 'Ted' join the usual in ACE Eddie nominations

hitfix.com – The American Cinema Editors (ACE) decided there was no rush and chose to hold its announcement for nominations honoring excellence in filmmaking until after the Oscar nominations landed.

Specialty Box Office: 'Celeste and Jesse' Scores Big Debut; 'Moonrise' Tops $40 Million

fb.indiewire.com – Sony Pictures Classics could have a late summer hit on its hands with Lee Toland Krieger's "Celeste and Jesse Forever," which scored a very strong debut in limited release. Its $28,003 per-theater-average blew away the much less impressive debuts of Millennium Entertainment's "The Babymakers" and Magnolia's "360." Notably, the weekend also saw Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" top the $40 million mark, inching toward replacing "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" as the highest grossing specialty release of 2012.

It took me several viewings to understand the goal of this movie. “This is a new and different world. The challenge is to cope with it. And not just cope, but thrive.” After I got it, I couldn’t understand why any foreign retirees would be brave enough to risk it all and retiree in India without knowing anything about the country or culture.   More »
