  9. Warner Bros. release of New Line/Village Roadshow’s Collateral Beauty isn’t winning any box office pageants, on a course to be Will Smith’s lowest wide release opening of all-time with an estimated $7M at 3,028 venues in fourth after an estimated $2.4M today. That’s way under last year’s Concussion which turned in a FSS of $10.5M and finaled at $34.5M; literally a 3x multiple. The film review headlines are worse than the box office headlines for this pic (Kyle Smith’s in the New York Post: Collateral Beauty does Collateral Damage), which is a weepie squarely aimed at females and meant to counterprogram the male dominant Rogue One. Women won’t come out to the movies until Christmas Day as they’re busy with other holiday activities, and Warner Bros. is clinging to the hope that the melodrama’s A- CinemaScore will create a halo that will counter the venomous film reviews which are at 14% Rotten. Collateral Beauty revolves around Howard, a New York ad executive (Will Smith) who loses his daughter, and tailspins into a funk. He begins to write letters to Love, Death, and Time. His ad exec colleagues get wind of this. They’re best bet is to have him declared insane, so they can sell the company out from under him, so they hire actors to impersonate Love, Death and Time. Howard argues with them, as his associates hatch a plan, and ultimately this leads to a Kleenex finale. Smith in the New York Post railed, “This must be the first movie ever made in which the death of a child is presented as a pesky obstacle to a corporate sale.”
  10. Elsewhere, Warner Bros/New Line’s Collateral Beauty is looking like a case of the box office ulgies: Pained by 13% Rotten Tomatoes reviews, it’s looking at delivering Will Smith his lowest wide-release opening of his career with $7.5M-$8M at 3,028 theaters (that’s lower than the $10.5M that Concussion made last year). This is according to industry estimates, not Warner Bros. There’s more than Rogue One to blame here for this ensemble which also stars Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Keira Knightley and more. If Collateral Beauty is lucky, it’ll get to $10M, but that would still be low for Smith. Estimated production cost is between $36M-$38M before P&A.
  11. News New Will Smith movie Collateral Beauty is getting panned Ben Arnold UK Movies Writer 14 December 2016 Panned… Will Smtih’s new movie Collateral Beauty is getting a kicking – Credit: Warner Bros More It looks as though Will Smith’s ‘McConaissance’ hasn’t started trundling into town just yet. His new movie ‘Collateral Beauty’, a new drama from the director of ‘One Day’ and Marley and Me’, is getting quite the panning at the hands of the critics. Despite an all-star cast including Helen Mirren, Ed Norton, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet and Naomie Harris, the drama is yet another misfire for the once hot Hollywood property, going for a Frank Capra-esque ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’-type hit, but falling short. It’s currently riding a 17% ‘fresh’ rating on reviews aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, meaning the majority of reviews are poor. Peter Bradshaw in a scathing one-starrer in The Guardian writes: “At the end of it, I screamed the way polar bears are supposed to when they get their tongues frozen to the ice. (Credit: Warner Bros) More “This horrifyingly yucky, toxically cutesy ensemble dramedy creates a Chernobyl atmosphere of manipulative sentimentality, topped off with an ending which M. Night Shyamalan might reject as too ridiculous. This isn’t Frank Capra. It is emotional literacy porn, like an aspirational self-help bestseller written by Keyser Söze.” Dan Callahan for The Wrap adds: “To paraphrase Groucho Marx, this is a movie where we watch Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Naomie Harris, Keira Knightley and several other fine players bore holes in themselves so that we can watch the sap run out. Stephen Whitty in the New York Daily News says, succinctly: “Will Smith should be looking for better movies.” In The Village Voice, Alan Scherstuhl adds: “You’ll shake your head. You’ll still struggle to accept that what you saw on that screen actually played in theaters, was funded and approved by distributors, took a month or so of the lives of those extraordinary actors.” (Credit: Warner) More Even the mildly positive points are heavily couched. “By the end of ‘Collateral Beauty’, you’d have to have a heart of stone for the film not to get to you a bit, but even if it does, you may still feel like you’ve been played,” said Owen Gleiberman in Variety. David Rooney in The Hollywood Reporter decries the ‘goopy sentiment’, but adds: “Audiences who enjoy smiling through tears, and don’t mind having their buttons pushed in the most obvious ways, could probably do a lot worse.” It’s out across the UK on Boxing Day.
  12. I'm more like you've recorded 60 tracks and you haven't done one with Jeff? You really are an idiot.
  13. Wow I'm shocked at all the negative reviews... I understand when bad boys gets a low rating but this kind of movie should do well with critics... 11% on rotten tomatoes... sigh
  14. gotta say.. I've been following Carnahan on twitter and the guy is an absolute idiot...
  15. Sounds like it's a great movie, with awesome acting and performances and a great message! Can't wait to see it!
  16. New albums from common, tribe and de la. That's a pretty good year!
  17. They are still rewriting the script? Unbelievable. They've been rewriting it for 15 years... I don't want to see this now Michael bay isn't directing. Bad boys is his franchise.
  18. Yeah I love this track. Great lyrics. Very powerful.
