Misty Copeland Brings Things Full Circle With The Nutcracker Role

Misty Copeland Brings Things Full Circle With The Nutcracker Role
Misty Copeland was dancing on air while making The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. In this exclusive sneak peek at one of the bonus features included in the film's Blu-ray and digital release, Copeland—who had a featured role as the Ballerina Princess—speaks candidly and joyously about what it meant to her. "I never imagined I would be a part of a film of this magnitude, so when Disney wanted to have me be a part of it, it was just like a no-brainer. The Nutcracker was the very first ballet that I ever performed in, and I performed the role of Clara," Copeland said. "It makes sense, I think, to have ballet—to have dance—be a part of this film." The holiday movie, directed...

2019 Costume Designers Guild Awards nominations: Oscar frontrunner ‘The Favourite,’ ‘Black Panther,’ ‘A Star is Born’ …
Four of our five predicted nominees for Best Costume Design at the Oscars — “Black Panther,” “The Favourite,” “Mary Poppins Returns” and “Mary Queen of Scots” — reaped bids for the Costume Designers Guild kudos. While our fifth contender – “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald — was snubbed, fans of that film should take heart from the fact that these awards often overlook one of the Academy Awards nominees. However, the Cdg has a stellar track record at honoring the eventual Oscar winner.

Our Oscar frontrunner “The Favourite” as well as third and fourth-ranked “Mary Poppins Returns” and “Mary Queen of Scots” contend for best period costumes as do “BlacKkKlansman” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Besides the second-ranked Oscar contender “Black Panther,” the fantasy film nominees are “Aquaman,” “The Avengers: Infinity War,” “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” and “A Wrinkle in Time.”

Here are seven trends in the film industry that stood out in 2018:

Record Breaker! Domestic Box Office Hits New High in 2018

  • Variety
Hollywood got the best gift of all on Christmas Eve. The domestic box office reached a new benchmark even before the busiest time of year for moviegoing commences.

Blockbusters including Disney’s “Black Panther” and “Incredibles 2,” Universal’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” and Fox’s “Deadpool 2” drove sales past $11.383 billion, according to Comscore. That puts 2018’s haul ahead of the record $11.382 billion set in 2016, with over a week left to go in the year.

It got more expensive to go to the movies, and ticket prices hit a new high, averaging $9.38 over the summer. But it’s not just the rising cost of admission accounting for the surge. Attendance is also up over 4% from last year.

As of Christmas Day, five of the top 10 biggest domestic releases of the year came from Disney. A pair of Marvel titles nabbed the first two slots, with “Black Panther” generating $700 million

‘First Man’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Lead Oscar Visual Effects Shortlist
Damien Chazelle’s “First Man” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” topped the VFX Oscar shortlist. They will compete in the January 5 bakeoff with Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” “Christopher Robin,” “Ready Player One,” Marvel Best Picture contender “Black Panther,” “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,”“Mary Poppins Returns,” “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” and “Welcome to Marwen.”

Failing to make the cut, however, were animated upstarts “Incredibles 2” and “Isle of Dogs,” DC’s “Aquaman,” “Bumblebee,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,””Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” “Mortal Engines,” “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,”“Paddington 2,” and “A Quiet Place.”

Big Breakthroughs Seen in Below-the-Line Categories

Big Breakthroughs Seen in Below-the-Line Categories
Is 2018 an anomaly, or is it a harbinger of things to come?

The awards derbies of recent years have seen a predominance of indie films at the expense of big studio features — resulting in a slate of Oscar contenders devoid not only of genuine blockbusters but also of more modest mid-budget crowd-pleasers. This has dampened the ratings of the Oscars telecast, much to the consternation of the Academy.

But this year feels different, with studio pics including “Black Panther,” “First Man” (pictured above) and “A Star Is Born” definitely in the running.

And along with this rise in the fortunes of studio pictures, many artisans who have worked on them — from cinematographers to costume designers to visual-effects supervisors — are seeing their projects attain a new level of acclaim and respect.

But before the distribution of the top prizes Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre, these artisans will have to run the

‘Mortal Engines’ to Lose More Than $100 Million at Box Office
Mortal Engines,” a steampunk fantasy adventure, is also an epic flop.

With a budget of just over $100 million and tens of millions in global marketing costs, executives at rival studios estimate that the movie will lose upwards of $100 million. Some even project that number could float to more than $125 million. “Mortal Engines” has so far made a paltry $42 million globally. The sci-fi epic came into a crowded marketplace at a competitive time of year, opening against the well-reviewed “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and “The Mule,” a Clint Eastwood thriller that had a better start than expected. “Mortal Engines,” on the other hand, launched below estimates, generating just $7.5 million when it debuted in North America.

“This is a true Christmas disaster and a lump of coal for Universal,” said Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations. “They took a big swing, and they struck out.”
