Kenneth Branagh is an actor/director who is best known for his screen adaptations of William Shakespeare’s plays. The Irish-born Branagh has always dabbled in the Hollywood pool however, first directing the Hitchcockian thriller Dead Again in 1991 and then bringing a big-budget version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to the screen in 1994. He began to focus on acting, taking on varied roles like that of the Scandinavian detective Wallander in the BBC television series and a supporting role as Laurence Oliver in My Week with Marilyn.

Chris Pine has become Paramount Pictures’ go-to man for action franchises. The actor has taken to the stars as Captain James T. Kirk in J.J Abrams’ Star Trek movies and now he is set to slip-into the suit of Jack Ryan, the popular character created by late novelist Tom Clancy in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Pine follows in the (not insignificant) footsteps of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck to bring the earnest CIA analyst to the screen in Kenneth Branagh’s franchise reboot.

This weekend’s box office is a vast improvement over last week’s disastrous showing.

Paul W.S Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution (read our review) will top the chart grossing $21.1 million, a great number for the fifth installment of a ten year old franchise, especially one which few people admit to liking.

It’s down on the first weekend take of the fourth film in the series, Resident Evil: Afterlife which opened to $26 million – the best debut in the series. That film went on to gross $60 million domestically and over $296 million worldwide. Retribution‘s take is the lowest debut since the franchise starter in 2002.  However, his zombie action film will make a killing on ...

It’s unbelievable that a shocker like The Possession should hold the box office top spot for two weeks in a row, but that seems to be the case, grossing $9.5 million for a $33.3 million total. That’s a great number for the Sam Raimi produced film, which cost less than $15 million to make, so it’s already in profit.

Lawless stabilized after last weekend’s disappointing debut. It should dip around 40%, grossing $6 million for a $23.5 million total. The Shia LaBeouf /Tom Hardy film should end up with a decent, if unimpressive final gross.

The box office chart has taken another dip as the end of the summer season offers up another weak weekend. The top spot was taken by the Sam Raimi produced The Possession (read our review). The horror film looks set to bank a decent (if unspectacular) $17.7 million. The Ole Bornedal directed film is already on the road to profitability as it cost less than $20 million to produce. It will likely take a big hit next weekend, before it scores more cash on DVD.

The Expendables 2 will top the box office this weekend, grossing an estimated $13.5 million for an overall of $52.3 million. A final gross of around $75 million seems likely, meaning that it’s going to fall short of the original film’s $103 million domestic gross. International numbers are strong, so there’s a good chance we could see The Expendables 3.

The Bourne Legacy looks set to score $9.3  million, for a $85.5 million total haul. This franchise film looks set to squeak past $100 million at the domestic box office. Is it enough for a sequel? Probably – once international sales and ancillaries are taken into account.

The remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 film, which stars Joel Kinnaman, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman and maybe Clive Owen, starts shooting in Toronto next month.
