Box Office: Jupiter Ascending, Seventh Son Bombing in Debuts

Box Office: Jupiter Ascending, Seventh Son

It’s not often that Hollywood releases two major theatrical bombs on the same weekend. But that’s what happened when “Jupiter Ascending” and “Seventh Son” both crashed in U.S. theaters on Friday.

Warner Bros.’ “Jupiter Ascending,” starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, is quickly falling in box office estimates to a skimpy $18 million opening. With a budget of $175 million, the Wachowskis’ sci-fi tentpole could lose tens of millions barring a dramatic turnaround overseas.

The forecast for Universal and Legendary’s long-delayed “Seventh Son,” starring Jeff Bridges, isn’t much brighter. The medieval fantasy tentpole has a projected loss of $85 million, as Varietyexclusively reported this week, despite earning $82 million at the international box office. It’s on track for only $6.6 million in its U.S. debut.

Neither of the B.O. casualties are a shock — both pics were long-delayed due to poor tracking, and Paramount’s “The Spongebob Movie,” which is soaking up $53 million this weekend, was originally projected to win the weekend. Still, the lousy ticket sales are a black eye for investors and filmmakers.

Andy and Lana Wachowski, masterminds of “The Matrix,” have yet to find commercial or critical success since their Keanu Reeves trilogy. Their previous two efforts, “Cloud Atlas” and “Speed Racer,” made a combined $67 million domestically.

The stylish filmmakers assumed that heartthrob Channing Tatum could attract more younger viewers to “Jupiter Ascending.” But Tatum is barely recognizable in the 3D  film, looking more like an elf than a sexy bounty hunter.

The sci-fi space opera earned a B- Cinemascore from moviegoers and a not-so-fresh 22% rating on RottenTomatoes.

WB had originally scheduled “Jupiter” for a prime summer release in July 2014 before pulling the plug six weeks prior to “complete special effects,” but buzz on the film was negative.

Jeff Bridges, meanwhile, is experiencing his own financial follies in recent years. The “Seventh Son” actor’s last two wide releases, “R.I.P.D.” and “The Giver,” both disappointed at the box office.

“Seventh Son,” directed by Sergei Bodrov, began filming in March 2012 and has had four different release dates. Co-starring Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes, the movie is based on Joseph Delaney’s literary series “The Spook’s Apprentice,” about a young hero with magical abilities.

Next week, Universal’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” is expected to heat up an otherwise chilly winter at the box office. Despite Warner Bros.’ smash hit “American Sniper,” several movies have tanked domestically, including Johnny Depp’s “Mortdecai” and Michael Mann’s “Blackhat,” starring Chris Hemsworth.

Channing Tatum Named People’s Sexiest Man Alive!

He’s made us laugh. He’s made us swoon. And, he’s made us sweat. And for all of that, “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum has been named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.

The 32-year-old opened up to the celebrity magazine about he found out about the honor, which was bestowed upon Bradley Cooper last year. “My first thought was, ‘Y’all are messing with me,’ ” Tatum says. “I told [my wife] Jenna [Dewan-Tatum] after we’d been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they’d gotten skunked. She was like, ‘What?’ Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now.”

The hunky leading man even shares how he’s thought about one day starting a family with his real-life leading lady.

“I’m ready; I think she’s ready. The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that,” he explains. “It’s really easy for us guys to say, ‘I want, like, 15 kids.’ Jenna will be like, ‘Well, you better get another wife!’ ”

And while it’s hard to believe that the dancer-turned-actor can ever get out of shape, he explains that even he has his fat days. He says, “I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can’t move well and I like to move,” he says. “When I’m not training, I get really round and soft.”

He had been heavily rumored to be this year’s hottest hottie last week. Other honorees this year include Blake Shelton, Ben Affleck, Chris Hemsworth, “New Girl” star Max Greenfield and Tatum’s “Magic Mike” co-star Matt Bomer, among others.

As it turns out, Tatum isn’t just topping People‘s list. He also happens to be GQ‘s Movie Star of the Year. “They were like: ‘Grind it. If you love it, grind it.’ I did.

And a lot of people who didn’t grind it, it’s not that they’re not in a good place, but I’m in a better place,” he tells the magazine, reports Just Jared, of the advice he received from seasoned vets in Hollywood.

The GQ issue he appears in also features pop star Rihanna on the cover wearing nothing but a leather jacket.

Happy Birthday Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart turns 22 on April 9, 2012. Not only is this is a great time to celebrate the birth of this prolific actress but this is also a great time to call out her trio of projects that are ready or almost ready for public consumption.

For starters, KStew will be seen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, her last turn in this career-building franchise. The movie starts where the last one left off which puts Stewart’s character, Bella Cullen, in the forefront of the flick as she and Edward (Robert Pattinson) do their best to protect their daughter, Renesemee (Mackenzie Foy).

Breaking Dawn Part 2 will hit theaters on November 16, 2012, but before that, Kristen Stewart will be seen in two other features.

One major motion picture in which Stewart plays one of the title roles is set for theaters come June 1, 2012. This movie–Snow White and the Huntsman–was filmed in London, and includes Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman. The filmis based on the well known fairy tale, but has been interpreted in a fresh way through dynamic CGI tricks and lots of tricks as directed by Rupert Sanders

Meanwhile, in a completely opposite role, Kristen Stewart will bow in On the Road as the irrepressible Marylou. In the movie version of the classic Jack Kerouac novel, the versatile actress will stick to script and will show off more than she ever has before as far as her body is concerned since the story calls for her character to appear completely nude in a number of scenes.

That said, the release date for the American premiere of On the Road has not been released, although the feature is set to open in Belgium, France, The Netherlands and Portugal at the end of May, 2012.

And so, as the world waits for three Kristen Stewart flicks to open, KStew turns 22 in time to celebrate her birthday during a year in which this hard-working actress is set to make waves in three different roles, all bring out fans galore. Stay tuned.
