Production, Tomorrowland


/Filmcast Ep. 319 – Tomorrowland David, Devindra, and Jeff continue their coverage of SIFF, discuss one of Steven Soderbergh’s underappreciated thrillers, and wonder how some great films get lost in the ether. Also, in this week’s After Dark, the guys discuss how difficult it is to come up with a lasting, meaningful name for something.


Who Is Tomorrowland For? Walt Disney Pictures Let’s just get this out of the way right now: movies are for everyone, but some movies are more specifically tailored for different audiences. Tomorrowland, Disney’s latest attempt at an original live-action outing, is a feel-good family-friendly feature that, thanks to an assortment of slip-ups and mishaps, was not only made for the wrong audience, but then sold to them to boot. The George Clooney-starring feature opened over the holiday weekend, and was quickly dinged as a flop, thanks to a weekend take that currently sits just below $42 million (per BoxOfficeMojo).

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" Takes the Number One Spot at the Foreign Box Office announced the weekend box office results for this past week where Disney and Marvel Studios' film "Avengers: Age of Ultron" dominated the international box office yet again. The Avengers sequel grossed $66.7 million internationally; the film has already grossed an astounding $860 million worldwide with an added $210 million made in China.Disney's sci-fi adventure film, "Tomorrowland", opened this weekend with an estimated $26.7 million internationally. Warner Bros. Pictures "Mad Max: Fury Road" continues to perform well overseas.
