Broadway’s Shubert Organization Netted $35 Million For Air; Now It’s Heading Underground
Posted on Friday July 25, 2014

Broadway’s Shubert Organization Netted $35 Million For Air; Now It’s Heading UndergroundEXCLUSIVE: Why did the Shubert Organization, which owns 17 of Broadway’s 40 designated theaters, sign off on a deal to buy New World Stages, the five-theater underground off-Broadway complex owned by Dutch entertainment mogul Joop van den Ende? Sources tell me the answer has nothing to do with the arts and everything to do with real estate — along with the unique, not to say wacky, world according to Shubert, a $410 million nonprofit that coincidentally owns the most powerful commercial theater company in the U.S. Column_BroadwayThe company, whose theaters housed Les MiserablesA Chorus Line, CatsFiddler On The Roof, Amadeus and countless other legendary shows, has been Broadway’s reigning landlord for nearly a century. In recent years, the Shubert Organization has sold air rights above its landmarked Times Square theaters to the tune of $50 million. This spring, the Witkoff Group, a building consortium, paid $18.3 million for 45,000 square feet of of the air above the Shubert-owned Booth and Gerald Schoenfeld Theatres on West 45th Street. That deal will allow Witkoff’s project, the Times Square Marriott Edition hotel at 701 Seventh Avenue, to grow to 500 feet high.

Comic-Con: ‘Walking Dead’ Season 5 To Premiere October 12; Trailer Unveiled (Video)
Posted on Friday July 25, 2014

Comic-Con: ‘Walking Dead’ Season 5 To Premiere October 12; Trailer Unveiled (Video)The Walking Dead is heading to Washington D.C. for Season 5 to find a cure for the zombie apocalypse. That was made very clear by an intense 5-minute sneak peek that Comic-Con fans saw today in the massive Hall H (see it below). “This is a season that is going to be pretty close to the comics,” said Robert Kirkman. The comic co-creator and series executive producer’s point was emphasized by fellow EP Gale Anne Hurd, who hinted before the video was shown at some suburban locations, and “you’ll see us take some big leaps with the characters and the set pieces.” AMC announced the new season debuts October 12 at 9 PM. Before the Season 5 video was shown the panel started off with a fake sitcom-like clip from Episode 15 of the upcoming season that showed an aged Rick Grimes and the other characters with long long beards playing cards in the train car they were trapped in at the end of Season 4. “Sort of like Cheers at Terminus,” joked showrunner Scott Gimple. In a repeat of the past SDCC appearances in the huge Hall H, Kirman, Hurd and Gimple were joined on the panel by cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman and Michael Cudlitz. Special Effects Make-up Supervisor and producer Greg Nicotero and ... Read More »

Posted on Friday July 25, 2014

Box Office Matinees: ‘Lucy’ On Track To Pull In $30M+ To Overpower ‘Hercules’ At $25M+ With Another $5M From Int’l3rd UPDATE, 12:50PM and 1:10 PM:  The Scarlett Johansson sci-fi actioner is expected to pull in over $30M (low to mid) and Hercules right under $30M (maybe $27M to $29M) as it looks now. More numbers will come as the day progresses but expecting Lucy to nab around $13M tonight (includes the late night number of $2.746M) and Hercules taking in around $10M to $12M tonight (includes the $2.1M late night numbers). The Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson starrer also launched yesterday in 11 international markets, including Australia and Russia and has grossed a total of $5M. The breakdown? $2.6M in Russia, which Paramount says is 40% higher than G.I. Joe Retaliation and marks the third best opening day of the year. The studio says that its Malaysian gross of $335K is 10% above Joe. In Australia, Hercules opened to No. 1 with a $590K take (and Par says it nearly doubled the #2 film in the marketplace). In addition, And So it Goes — Rob Reiner’s film starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton — may gross anywhere from $4.5M to $6M for the three day domestically based on an expected $1.8M to $2M Friday tally. While Gabriel Iglesias’ concert film The Fluffy Movie (in 432 locales) may bring in anywhere from $750K to $1M Friday- and that includes late shows of $75K. That’s how it looks ... Read More »

Comic-Con: ‘iZombie’ More ‘Buffy’ Than ‘Veronica Mars’
Posted on Friday July 25, 2014

Comic-Con: ‘iZombie’ More ‘Buffy’ Than ‘Veronica Mars’iZombie executive producer and co-creator Rob Thomas told potential fans today at Comic-Con that he wasn’t screening the CW pilot at the fanboy confab because it’s not ready yet. “We’re recasting some of the roles and have three more days to reshoot. We wanted to have a finished product that is ready to air.” As reported by Deadline on May 20, Alexandra Krosney in the iZombie pilot was being replaced. Krosney played Peyton, the best friend of do-gooder Seattle medical student-turned-zombie-tuned-PI Liv Moore (Rose McIver). comic-con-logoInstead, Thomas and co-creator/EP Diane Ruggiero showed a lengthy clip, where Moore gets turned into a zombie, and winds up assisting the cops solve crimes in the morgue. As murdered folk are wheeled in, she eats their brains, gains their insight and bad tendencies, but all the while, she’s just trying to deal with her zombie-ism. The clip played well with the crowd in Room BCEF, however, with Liv’s narration and the whole murder mystery aspect of the show, one can’t help but think it’s The Veronica Mars Zombie Show. Addressing the label, Thomas said, “Diane and I have a similar aesthetic in our shows and our dramas have a sense of humor. So I think tonally, we’ll live in that (Veronica Mars) world. iZombie is clearly dialed up with more action. Sometimes fans put Veronica and Buffy The Vampire Slayer in the same category and I ...
