Manohla Dargis And Robert Pattinson

“Good Time doesn’t peddle a message or redemption, but instead tethers you to an oblivious narcissist who pushes the story into an ever-deepening downward spiral. As errors turn into catastrophes, Connie grows increasingly feral, becoming a character who is a biliously funny reproach to the American triumphalism that suffuses superhero flicks and indies alike and…

The DVD Wrapup: World Cinema Project 2, Obsession, Pelle the Conqueror, Jacques Rivette, Dark Angel and more

It would be difficult for most of us to sustain the level of affection and enthusiasm Martin Scorsese displays in his introductions to the half-dozen films collected in World Cinema Project: No. 2. They are his godchildren. Scorsese has always been a key player in the film preservation movement and this is the second batch of movies the World Cinema Project has rescued for future generations to enjoy. Established in 2007 under the auspices of the Film Foundation, which, in 1990, Scorsese founded and now chairs, the project has thus far restored 30 marginalized, infrequently screened films from 21 regions generally unequipped to preserve their own cinema history. They have been made available for exhibition on various platforms. For its part, the foundation has helped restore more than 750 films, accessible to the public through programming at festivals, museums and educational i.nstitutions around the world. It easily qualifies as God’s work and Scorsese has a right to be expect a few plenary indulgences.

The Weekend Report

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales easily led the Memorial holiday with an estimated $61.9 million debut during the three-day portion of the weekend. (All figures reflect 3-day box office; chart will be updated on Monday). The session’s other national opener — and alternative ocean-splasher — Baywatch had a less auspicious beach experience at $18.1 million.

On Friday, Disney also became the first distributor to cross the $1 billion threshold domestically — it was also first to the mark in 2016 but 19 days earlier — with Beauty and the Beast passing $500 million on Sunday. Internationally, The Fate of the Furious became 2017’s first $1 billion box office behemoth.

Friday Box Office Estimates

56, 43, 35, 23. See a pattern here?

Those are the opening days of the first four Pirates movies. The first film had a Wednesday open and a $14m first Friday.

Domestically, Pirates is over at this scale, what with a $40 million star in the lead. Internationally, Disney is hoping not to care what happened domestically.

Paramount had an ugly Baywatch launch.
