UK crown's "Mamma mia!"

Mamma Mia tops Uk boxoffice of all time

LONDON — Feel-good tuner “Mamma Mia!” has become the biggest grossing Brit pic of all time at the U.K. box office.

The Meryl Streep starrer, which boasts a running cume of $109.1 million (£67 million), achieved the distinction by passing “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” which took $107.6 million in the U.K.

The pic also has a very good shot at becoming the biggest grossing film of all time at U.K. wickets. It trails only James Cameron’s “Titanic,” which grossed $112.5 million.

Last weekend, the Abba musical dipped 40% to take $420,217 at 284 screens — good enough for ninth spot in the charts in its 16th session.

If it does not sink the “Titanic” on this run, future re-releases should do the trick.

This weekend, “Mamma Mia!” will have to play second fiddle to the opening of “Quantum of Solace,” which should dominate cinema biz.

“Mamma Mia!” world premiered in London June 30 and has never looked back, capturing the imagination of Brit auds. Boosted by strong reviews — “a guilty pleasure powerful enough to turn the stoniest heads,” said the Times — it opened boffo and has shown awesome traction ever since.

Maintained by strong word of mouth and, later in the run, the popularity of sing-a-long screenings, the musical has proved a positively whammo hit for Universal.

U.K. bookers attribute the sensational perf to the enduring popularity of all things Abba, auds’ appetite for feel-good fare (possibly to alleviate the misery of the depressing state of the economy), a strong maintaining campaign by Universal and the attractiveness of the British-Irish heavy cast, which includes Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Julie Walters and fast-rising thesp Dominic Cooper.

Jeremy Kay in Los Angeles

19 Oct 2008

Abba movie Mamma Mia! passed another milestone in a phenomenal run in international markets, crossing the $400m mark.

In so doing became it became Universal's second biggest international release behind Jurassic Park.

It is now the fourth biggest overseas hit of the year-to-date behind Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull on $466m, The Dark Knight on $464m and Kung Fu Panda on $418m.

This weekend Mamma Mia! opened at number one in Chile, Peru and Egypt and enjoyed a solid $1.4m hold in its third weekend in Italy from 284 venues to raise the tally to $7.5m.

In the UK the film added $620,000 (£360,000) from 331 sites in its 15th weekend to reach a sensational $126.1m (£65.8m) running total and is poised to overtake Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone's £66.1m total and become the second biggest release in the UK behind Titanic on £69m.

South Korea has generated $23.3m and Germany stands at $38.2m. There are four territories to go including Japan on January 30, 2009.

Brosnan's fall greetings

Newsletter October 2008

Fall Greetings One and All,

What a joy it has been to watch Mamma Mia make so many people happy. Not a day goes by without someone saying they have seen it, not once but several times. Recently, I met an elegant and spry lady celebrating her 87th birthday and she told me she had seen the movie 9 times because it made her feel so happy. Her beautiful daughters and grandchildren were all nodding in agreement beside her. I don't think any of us thought Mamma Mia would touch so many people’s lives around the world. But it has, and I do believe it will continue to do so for many years to come. As the late great Sydney Pollack said to me one night at the Deauville Film Festival when I was promoting Thomas Crown... "Enjoy it, they don’t come round that often." He was right. (Now there’s a guy I would have loved to have worked with.)

I made an independent film over the summer with my company, Irish DreamTime, called The Greatest. The beautiful and talented Susan Sarandon joined first time writer/director Shana Feste and a young company of gifted actors to make a film which explores love, loss and the heartbeat of family life. Up next I will be making a movie with Roman Polanski called The Ghost. The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle has been pushed to begin production in summer 2009 and The Thomas Crown Affair 2 will follow shortly thereafter.

This fall, change is in the air. Now more than ever we must have the courage to choose a leader who will bring us hope in this ever changing world. I am proud to be an American. I have been blessed to earn a good life here, to raise a family, and to be part of a country and a nation that I will always call home. I follow a long line of fellow Irish men and women who have come to this land to begin a new life. Whatever your choice, please vote on November 4th. To quote Malcolm Fraser:

"America remains the world’s best hope for a free and open and peaceful society."

Here's to unity, compassion between us all, and kindness.

Malibu on fire

 

 

HOLLYWOOD stars were last night preparing to flee for their lives as fire swept across California.


Two people have been killed in the inferno that has so far engulfed a 13,000-acre area around Los Angeles. 

nIn Malibu – home to stars including Pamela Anderson, 41, Pierce Brosnan, 55, and Mel Gibson, 52 – residents were warned they may have to evacuate their mansions.

Many houses have already been destroyed by the fire, which has been raging for three days.

More than 1,400 homes were evacuated at the huge San Diego County Marine base and in nearby Oceanside.
nOver 2,000 firefighters are trying to contain the flames, helped by planes.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, 61, declared a state of emergency, saying: “Winds change conditions by the hour.

“That is why it is vital that residents in the areas surrounding these wildfires heed warnings to evacuate.”

NBC Universal profit jumps 10%

 

The company said it anticipates that fourth-quarter profit at the entertainment unit will be flat to up 5% from the fourth quarter of 2007. "We are cautious on the outlook here," said GE Chief Financial Officer Keith Sherin, during a call with analyts. ' I think you've got to look at what the local stations are doing. [And] we will have to see what the national advertising does. Great strength in cable, and we've got a pretty good performance in film outlined."
NBC Universal's net income rose to $645 million from $589 million in the third quarter of 2007.
Shares of parent General Electric .
Revenue climbed 35% to $5.07 billion.
Chief Financial Offer Keith Sherin told analysts on a conference call that the film segment saw its profit rise 40%, led by the performance of "Mamma Mia," a movie adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan. The film has grossed more than $500 million worldwide.

"Thomas Crown" replicated

 

'Thomas Crown' thief

A thief replicated scenes from the Pierce Brosnan movie The Thomas Crown Affair when he hired an army of decoys to help him get away from a crime.

The jobs had been placed on Craiglist offering people $28.50 per hour if they turned up wearing a blue, long-sleeved shirt, yellow safety vest, eye protection and ventilator mask.

They were told to wait near a Bank of America branch in Monroe, Seattle ... meanwhile our criminal was around the corner wearing the same outfit attacking an armored truck guard and stealing from the cash delivery.

It is similar to, but not as stylish as, the 1999 movie where Pierce Brosnan's art thief, dons a trench coat and bowler hat, makes off with a priceless masterpiece as museum security guards are distracted by a horde of lookalikes he had hired.
The 'workers' who thought they were there to help on a city landscaping project say they did not mind being accessories to a crime, but would have preferred a cooler outfit.

Police have not disclosed how much money he got away with and the FBI are currently trying to use the job advert to locate the criminal.
