Bo Report: ‘Top End Wedding’ charms audiences as ‘Avengers: Endgame’ soars

‘Top End Wedding.’

Released in the slipstream of the Disney/Marvel Studios’ juggernaut Avengers: Endgame, Wayne Blair’s Top End Wedding proved effective counter-programming last weekend.

The romantic comedy starring Miranda Tapsell, Gwilym Lee, Kerry Fox, Huw Higginson and Shari Sebbens wooed $1.1 million at 287 locations and $1.588 million with paid previews for Universal Pictures.

The opening was slightly behind that of Jeremy SimsLast Cab to Darwin’s $1.14 million, which finished with $7.4 million.

So, given the largely positive reviews and favourable word-of-mouth, the film co-written by Tapsell and Joshua Tyler and produced by Goalpost PicturesRosemary Blight and Kylie du Fresne and Kojo’s Kate Croser could well reach $7 million.

The launch date was locked in before Universal took over eOne’s theatrical releases and before anyone knew the latest Marvel title would smash industry records in Australia and globally.

The superhero action adventure directed by the Russo brothers scored $13.6 million in Oz,

Movie Review – The Silence (2019)

The Silence, 2019.

Directed by John R. Leonetti.

Starring Kiernan Shipka, Stanley Tucci, Miranda Otto, Kate Trotter, Kyle Breitkopf, John Corbett, and Billy MacLellan.

Synopsis:

When the world is under attack from terrifying creatures who hunt their human prey by sound, 16-year old Ally Andrews, who lost her hearing at 13, and her family seek refuge in a remote haven.

Veteran cinematographer John R. Leonetti has yet to impress this critic as a horror director. Annabelle proved James Wan’s Conjurverse to be fallible and Wish Upon exists as this Final Destination Lite mess of disjointed death sequences. Could 2019’s The Silence turn a new page, one where “good enough for Leonetti” isn’t considered effusive praise? Not today, dear reader.

Much like Leonetti’s failure to recreate James Wan’s signature haunted menace in Annabelle, Leonetti attempts to borrow from A Quiet Place in terms of silent tension. Please note, in

‘The Silence’ Review (Netflix Original)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Stanley Tucci, Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Kate Trotter, John Corbett, Kyle Breitkopf, Dempsey Bryk, Billy MacLellan, Gregory Waters | Written by Carey Van Dyke, Shane Van Dyke | Directed by John R. Leonetti

The Silence – directed by John R. Leonetti – is the latest Netflix horror released with zero prior knowledge and fanfare for its consumers.

The film stars Stanley Tucci, Kiernan Shipka and Miranda Otto to name a few, as a family fighting a monstrous newly emerged enemy and to add insult to injury mysterious religious cult. If you’ve seen Bird Box or A Quiet Place you’ve already had the pleasure – or displeasure depending on your disposition – of seeing this underwhelming semi-horror protocol. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka impresses in a film that has little bite or intrigue, with very little emotional engagement or even horror elements for that matter.

The Silence is sadly just profoundly underwhelming

The Chaperone – Review

The prospect of a film about the iconic silent film star Louise Brooks was so tantalizing. The star with the sleek black bob and bold gaze was the most forward of the screen’s stars representing women breaking the social conventions in the Roaring ’20s.

The Chaperone is a tale of Louise Brooks at 16,as she is just beginning her path to stardom, which made The Chaperone seem irresistible. Yet, despite a fine cast led by Elizabeth McGovern and young Haley Lu Richardson plus a script by Julian Fellowes. The Chaperone falls short of that promise.

This PBS production reunites “Downton Abbey” writer Julian Fellowes and star Elizabeth McGovern in another period drama. Yet, directed by Michael Engler, in his first theatrical release after a long career in television, The Chaperone feels like a TV movie. Despite nice locations and pretty costumes,

Film Review: ‘The Chaperone’ is Excellent Lesson in 1920s Identity

Chicago – Although mostly set in the early 1920s, “The Chaperone” has some pungent lessons regarding identity, and living life authentically. The story of former silent film star Louise Brooks and her first trip to New York City expresses both how we can live today and how they lived back then.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

A couple of actor punks from the 1980s/90s period, Elizabeth McGovern and Campbell Scott, portray a grown up flapper-era married couple from Kansas with welcome sensitivity. It is McGovern that shines, as the title character, as it is her journey that upends several lives, up to and including her young about-to-be-a-star responsibility. Haley Lu Richardson (“The Edge of Seventeen”) solidifies her up and coming status by creating a memorable Louise Brooks, a person ahead of her time. The pairing of chaperone and starlet makes for an absorbing narrative, combining the morality of the time with an emerging show business dynamo.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Cast Reacts to Part 2's Biggest Twists

If it looked like the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars were having a little too much fun with the supernatural shenanigans of Part 2, it’s because they were. From Sabrina’s fiery resurrection to Zelda’s own red wedding, the cast relished every devilish twist.

At least that’s the impression TVLine got during a recent visit to the Netflix series’ Vancouver set. Below, see what the cast told reporters about their storylines in Part 2, including one actor’s long-awaited playdate with the Spellman witches.

What's the Deal With Nick Scratch in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2? Let's Discuss
Warning: Major (and majorly spooky) spoilers for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina below!

If the final episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's second season doesn't make you shout "What the hell?!" "What the heaven?!" then perhaps you're not as emotionally invested in the Netflix teen drama as I am. And you know what? If that's the case, I'm jealous, because the season two finale leaves Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) reeling from the betrayal, and then subsequent "death" of her warlock boyfriend, Nick Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood).

Much of the lead-up to season two hinged around whether or not Sabrina would reconcile with her mortal high school sweetheart, Harvey (Ross Lynch), or move on with Nick, who attends the Academy of the Unseen Arts with her. Though she and Harvey briefly rekindle things in the beginning of the season (emphasis on briefly), Sabrina quickly comes to realize that the differences between them are

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2: The Blackwoods Reveal All

Chris Cummins Kayti Burt Apr 9, 2019

Richard Coyle and Miranda Otto discuss Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's most dysfunctional couple.

This Chilling Adventures of Sabrina article contains major spoilers for the show's second part.

In a series packed with dynamic relationships, none is as complicated as that of the pairing between Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle) and Zelda Spellman (Miranda Otto). More of a business relationship than a romantic one -- although the occasional flagellation session also factors into it -- the Blackwoods are together for their mutual gain.

The just-released second part of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina showcases the pair's wedding day, a ceremony that is performed in the immediate aftermath of the Antipope's slaying and one that is interrupted by Sabrina and Nick posing as Edward and Diana Spellman... not to mention a knife-wielding Ambrose.

It's hardly the traditional nuptials, not that anything about this couple is ordinary.

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in April, and the Best Reasons to Watch

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in April, and the Best Reasons to Watch
1. “Our Planet” Season 1 (available now)

Why Should I Watch? In the second episode of “Our Planet,” Netflix’s eight-part nature docuseries riffing on the success of “Planet Earth,” there’s a stunning image of the planet’s largest walrus population. Drone shots capture a sea of brown fur resting on top of the actual sea itself, as sweeping crane movements illustrate the vast population of tusked mammals fighting for precious square inches of real estate. Their honks are as humorous as their adventurous climbs over other walruses — which can crush walruses on the bottom — and the surrounding rocks are terrifying. They look like aliens, and their habitat also feels like a land far removed from our own. But it’s not. This is our planet, and the Netflix special connects us to that seemingly basic concept with raw power. The ending of this brief segment offers some of the most

Daily Dead’s 2019 Spring/Summer Movie Preview

With Pet Sematary (2019) headed to theaters today, that means we’re officially kicking off the Spring Movie Season, which makes it the perfect time to take a look ahead at all the horror, sci-fi, and genre-adjacent films headed to big and small screens in the coming months. And considering the Summer Movie Season seems to unofficially kick off earlier and earlier every year, this writer thought it only made sense to just go ahead and get a jump on the titles you should keep an eye out for in theaters or on VOD through August 2019.

Even though the movie gods have already been great to us horror fans over the last several months, we have so many exciting films to look forward to in the near future, including a new Hellboy, The Curse of La Llorona, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Brightburn, John Wick: Chapter 3, The Dead Don’t Die,

Review: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – Season 1

It’s unlikely that anyone who grew up in the 90s won’t have spent at least some of their youth watching Sabrina The Teenage Witch. The hit show aired from the mid-90s onwards, ran for more than 150 episodes, spawned 3 television movies and made actress Melissa Joan Hart a household name. Funny, colourful, wholesome and with an audience of millions, the much-loved show, which still airs today, has been prime reboot real estate for some time. It was simply a question of who had warts big enough to do it.

Enter Netflix and writer/producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Based on the Archie comic, their new incarnation joins the half-witch/half-mortal Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) a few days shy of her 16th birthday. Like all teenagers, she has been excitedly awaiting this landmark age, but for Sabrina turning 16 means so much more than just a later curfew: It’s the day

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Returns: What to Expect From 'Darker' Part 2

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s titular teenage witch flirted with the dark side in Part 1, but when the Netflix drama returns for Part 2 on Friday, she’s ready to make a serious commitment.

“Her duality is strong — there’s a strong part of her that’s mortal, but I do think there’s that dark side in her,” Kiernan Shipka told TVLine and other outlets during a recent visit to the show’s Vancouver set. “Playing with that has been super fun. She’s really excited about [the path she’s on] right now.”

Indeed, Part 2 puts our girl Sabrina on entirely new path, one lined with new frenemies,

Netflix Review – Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2

Ej Moreno on the first five episodes of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2…

Over the first five episodes for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2, the show dives into so much material that it feels overwhelming. Usually, when screeners for TV shows come out, you get a small sample to review, and you crave more. Not for this show though; it was almost a blessing to get a break after five episodes.

The second season of Netflix’s teen scream does so much in such little time that it feels like the sky’s the limit for what can happen next. Honestly, it’s hard to predict what will happen in the next half of this season…let alone the show’s future!

Right now though, let’s focus on Part 2 of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Picking right up where season one left off, Sabrina is trying to find a

The Conjuring 3 Gets a Fall 2020 Release Date

The Conjuring 3 Gets a Fall 2020 Release Date
A few weeks back we passed along the excellent news that producer James Wan and director Michael Chaves's The Conjuring 3 starring Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will begin shooting in Atlanta this summer. And that news makes more than a bit of sense today as we have just learned that the upcoming and much-anticipated third entry in The Conjuring main flagship series will be possessing a theater near you on September 11, 2020. Yeah, September 11th. Kind of seems like a bad omen to me, but what do I know.

Anyhow, The Conjuring 3 will not only be the third entry in the The Conjuring series (duh), but it will also be the eighth entry in The Conjuring Universe as a whole. And for those who might need a refresher course, The Conjuring Universe currently includes James Wan's The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 with Wilson and Farmiga, and John

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 Review (Spoiler Free)

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 is back and better than before. Here's our spoiler-free review!

This Chilling Adventures of Sabrina review contains no spoilers, except for some information that was presented in the series' trailers. It is based on the first five episodes of season 2 that were made available to critics.

There's a classic They Might Be Giants lyric that states "you can't shake the devil's hand and say you're only kidding." In the new episodes of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina that drop on April 5th, the titular teenage witch discovers this firsthand. Blessed -- or should that be cursed? -- with a newfound willingness to embrace her witchy heritage after signing the Book of the Beast in the season one finale, Sabrina finds herself increasingly pulling away from her mortal life.

But can she truly break the bonds that tie her to her humanity?

That is one of the
