How Badly Did "The Birth Of A Nation" Actually Do At The Box Office? — After enduring a sustained and emotional onslaught of hype and scandal over the past nine months, The Birth of a Nation finally opened in theaters, earning an estimated $7.1 million in 2,105 locations in the US and Canada. It is, at best, a tepid debut for any wide release film, but it has to be especially disappointing for Fox Searchlight.

Disney buying Lucasfilm, prepping new 'Star Wars' movies for 2015 and beyond -- VIDEO — The force is strong with Mickey Mouse. In one of the most momentous entertainment industry acquisitions of the last 30 years, the Walt Disney Company announced on Tuesday that it is purchasing Lucasfilm in a stock and cash deal valued at $4.05 billion.

35 Movies You Will Be Talking About This Awards Season — We have finally stumbled out of the desert that was this summer's movie season - a wasteland of ill-conceived sequels - and emerged into an oasis of thoughtful, moving, challenging, joyous, original movies that will stretch right into the end of the year. Yes, at long last, we have entered awards season.

Joss Whedon Has Launched A Campaign To Get You To Vote — And Not For Trump — After slaying vampires, corralling superheroes, and vanquishing genocidal robots, filmmaker Joss Whedon is tackling perhaps the most formidable project of his career: convincing Americans to vote. And he's essentially conscripted half of Hollywood to help him. Today, Whedon is launching Save the Day, a super PAC designed to get as many people to the ballot box as possible on Nov.

Barack Obama Is Suddenly The Hottest Thing In Movies — For the second time this year, Barack Obama is at the center of a film debuting at a major film festival - and winning raves, to boot. It turns out, he's an unusually productive filmmaking subject for a sitting US president.

The Director Who Wants To Show That "Everyone In The World Is Not Racist" — Antoine Fuqua shot The Magnificent Seven - a remake of the classic 1960 Western about a septet of hired guns who agree to defend a small town from a rapacious strongman - just as Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign and injected divisive, racist rhetoric into the national conversation.

Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin join 'Ender's Game' — The race to find the next Hunger Games - i.e. an adaptation of a book series aimed at the YA crowd and beloved by swarms of passionate, ticket-buying fans - just found itself a new frontrunner today, with the news that Harrison Ford and Abigail Breslin have signed onto the adaptation of Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game.

Why Audiences Keep Choking On A Diet Of Sequels — In the Age of No New Ideas, the term "sequel" has expanded in spirit, becoming a catchall for anything that isn't original - which is to say, almost everything given a big summer release.

Nate Parker's Rape Allegations Were Probably Never Considered At Sundance — In the furious bidding war that immediately followed the premiere of The Birth of a Nation at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in January, it is likely that no one thought to investigate the background of the acclaimed film's director and star Nate Parker, sources have told BuzzFeed News.

Inside The Craziest, Raunchiest, Most Politically Incorrect Animated Comedy Ever — Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg did not know what to expect when they stepped in front of 1,000-plus people at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival in March to introduce their newest movie, Sausage Party.
