‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ set to best weekend box office

The sentient primates are slated to best the Autobots and claim their throne atop the box-office charts this weekend.   The tremendous buzz around (i.e. 92% on “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” the follow-up to 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” will likely make this the top-grossing movie at theaters this weekend.   Paramount Pictures’ “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” has topped the U.S. box office for the last two weeks, but as 20th Century Fox, is expecting $55 million to $60 million in ticket sales in the United Sates and Canada through Sunday for the latest installment of the ape-centric franchise; the beloved bots will surely face box-office extinction.   I am sure that Chernin Entertainment, the film’s production company,  and Fox, the film’s financier, will be pleased with those figures. The overall production totaled to $170 million. This will not only be a strong start for the film, but will provide a sizable return on their investment.   The sequel picks up nearly a decade after a lethal virus ravaged the human race leaving chief ape Caesar’s republic of primates pitted against a group of  human survivors whose relations are stressed, to say the least.   The domestic box-office isn’t seeing the same success when compared to last Summer. So, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” might be the golden ticket to turn...

A Look at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Nominees

The nominations are in! Which one of your favorite shows made the cut? Take a gander. Notice anything different than previous years? Well, we at FilmFad sure do. The emergence of Netflix as a worthy competitor for one. The next few years may very well redefine the industry if the web based streaming media platform continues to snatch away market share from the small screen. With the Kevin Spacey led “House of Cards” and one of my personal favorites, “Orange is the New Black,” Netflix has used the star-power of well-known actors, like Spacey, and series creators, like Jenji...

Top 5 Male Full-Frontal Movie Moments

Here is a brief journey (see what I did there) through what I consider to be the top five most wang-tastic movie scenes. It came out of the blue [balls]… the male full-frontal scene. From Billy Crudup’s smurf tinged super-hero member to “Hollow Man” Kevin Bacon’s bits, countless leading gents have dropped trou forcing audiences to bask in their phallic glory. No one was ready. Well, except for maybe Boy George and Bryan Singer… they might be a little too ready. Movie makers across America felt the Nation’s growing pang for wang and obliged. I call it the emergence...
