China Box Office: ‘Passengers’ Deposes ‘Rogue One’ After One Week
Space romance, “Passengers” took over the number one spot at the Chinese box office, easing aside “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” after just one week.
“Passengers” earned $17.3 million from an outing of some 60,000 screenings per day, according to data from Ent Group. That gave it a 30% market share of a lackluster weekend.
In third place was Chinese romantic comedy “Some Like it Hot,” in its third week in theaters. It earned $7.48 million for the weekend, giving it a 17-day cumulative total of $70.0 million.
Chinese animation “Bakkom Bear: Agent 008” was a new release that opened in fourth place. The latest in a franchise, the picture earned $5.78 million in its opening three days.
“Kubo And The Two Strings” plucked an opening score of $2.98 million. »

‘My Pet Dinosaur’ Trailer: The Latest ‘E.T.’ Ripoff Hails From Australia
Plenty of movies have tried to capture the same magic as E.T. The Extra Terrestrial. Perhaps most famous is the abysmal, blatant ripoff Mac and Me, which provides endless, unintentional laughs, but there are plenty more than have come and gone. It’s hard to manufacture the kind of genuine wonder and emotion that came from […]

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Dominates Social Media Buzz
Universal’s “Fifty Shades Darker” topped social media buzz last week with an impressive 152,000 new conversations, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.
The studio released the soundtrack listing on Jan. 12, three days after Taylor Swift also posted a “first look” of her soundtrack music video with Zayn Malik. PreAct estimates that a total of 1.12 million new conversations have been generated for the sequel, which opens on Feb. 10.
The sequel depicts an escalating romance between the characters played by Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) with plenty of steamy scenes and shadowy figures from Christian’s past emerging. “Fifty Shades Darker” also led the “most talked-about movies” chart during the previous week in the wake of releasing an extended trailer during the season premiere of “The Bachelor.”

Lee Greenwood Says Performers May Regret Passing on Chance to Perform at Inauguration
Lee Greenwood, who will perform at inaugural events this week for President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, suggested that those who turn down the chance will later regret missing the opportunity.
He said that he had not heard that Jennifer Holliday, announced as a performer at the opening concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday, backed out of the appearance on Saturday, citing the negative reaction she got on social media.
“She is going to regret not going in the future,” Greenwood said. “You don’t get this invitation very often.”
He added, “To say no — I can’t imagine the embarrassment she might have later on” for passing it up.
He called it a “thrill” to witness the peaceful transition of power, at an event that he said was unique in the world. “You need to support him and all the things he plans to do for America, »

Mark Hamill Is Reunited with His Lightsaber from ‘Return of the Jedi’ — Watch
Between the election of Donald Trump and the passing of Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill has mostly been in the news for unhappy developments these last few months. He’s called the incoming administration a “who’s-who of really despicable people” and written an emotional tribute to his “Star Wars” sister, so it comes as a welcome reprieve to see him reunited with an old friend — even if it’s just a movie prop.
In an upcoming episode of “Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest,” Luke Skywalker himself is shown a small suitcase and asked if he knows what it contains. Hamill has no idea, and so Alinger shows him: the original lightsaber he used in “Return of the Jedi,” which was also used by Sir Alec Guinness in “A New Hope.” Watch the clip below. »

‘Sherlock’ Finale Leak: BBC Investigating Possible Connection to Russia’s Channel One
The fourth season of “Sherlock” officially aired its finale last night, but many saw a leaked version of the episode a day earlier — and some believe Russia’s state-run broadcaster could be involved. As the pirated version of the 90-minute episode apparently includes a brief advertisement for Channel One — the Russian channel in question, which airs “Sherlock” in the Motherland — the BBC has launched an investigation into the matter. Sounds like a case for, well, you know.

French-Moroccan Actor Assaad Bouab Broadens His Canvas
Paris– Having playing a Muslim Azerbiijani boy in Asif Kapadia’s “Ali and Nino,” a Syrien camp commander in “Homeland” (season 5) “Homeland,” the handsome French-Moroccan actor Assaad Bouab might well be on track to follow the footsteps of Reda Kateb, another French actor of North African origins who appeared in dozens of French films and TV series and a few high-profile U.S. titles before accessing meatier roles at home.
Represented by Emmanuelle Ramade and Florence Charmasson at Adequat in Paris, Bouab has seen his career heat up in the last couple years. Since getting his first leading role in Mary Jimenez and Bénédicte Liénard’s politically-engaged “Le chant des hommes” and starring in the popular Canal Plus show “Braquo,” Bouab clinched a key role in the second season of “10 Pour Cent” (“Call My Agent”), the French comedy hit series centering on a Parisian talent agency.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Sings a New Song for ‘The West Wing’: ‘What’s Next?’
More than 10 years after President Bartlet left the White House, “The West Wing” continues to feel relevant — maybe now more than ever. On the eve of this Friday’s presidential inauguration, “Hamilton” creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda has written a new song for the West Wing Weekly podcast named after one of the political drama’s most oft-repeated questions: “What’s Next?” Watch below.
“Ginger get the popcorn / The filibuster is in / I’m Toby Ziegler with the drop in / What kind of day has it been?” begins the track, which is accompanied by footage of the show. Created by Aaron Sorkin, “The West Wing” ran for seven seasons between 1999 and 2006 and took place in what increasingly seems like an alternate reality where our elected officials do their utmost to serve the American people rather than themselves. »

Scottish Newspaper Compares Donald Trump’s Inauguration to a ‘Twilight Zone’ Episode
If the last few months have taken on an air of unreality for you, you’re far from alone. Scotland’s Sunday Herald newspaper has leaned into this with an item in its TV listings about this Friday’s presidential inauguration comparing the event to an episode of “The Twilight Zone” — not that such blockbuster talents as 3 Doors Down were ever featured on the classic anthology series. Here’s the full blurb, which comes from Damien Love:
President Trump: The Inauguration
4pm, BBC One/Stv
After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns with one of the ambitious, expensive and controversial productions in broadcast history. Sci-fi writers have dabbled often with alternative history stories — among the most common is the “What if The Nazis Had Won The Second World War” setting — but this huge interactive virtual reality project, »
