One doesn't choose his parents, nor his children! Paul Marseul, owner of a prestigious vineyard in Saint Emilion has a son, Martin, who works with him on the family estate.

He dreams of a talented son, more charismatic ... more in line with his father's fantasies! The arrival of Philip, the son of his manager will change the life at the vineyard. Paul sees in him the ideal son.

Per Theater Chart: IMAX Shines Like the Son

August 21st, 2013

Space Station remained in first place on the per theater chart, again with $30,602. The film has made $2 million so far this year and it seems likely it will last long enough to get to $100 million in total, eventually. You Will Be My Son was next with $15,301 in one theater. Surprisingly Austenland made the $10,000 club. Given its reviews and its genre, earning its per theater average of $10,166 in four theaters is surprisingly high. Blue Jasmine rounded out the $10,000 club with $10,005. It is already playing in 229 theaters and it will expand more. More...

Weekend Estimates: Butler Gives Winning Performance

August 18th, 2013

If it can move Summer forward to the first week in May, perhaps Hollywood can also move Awards Season forward to mid-August. That's certainly the feeling one gets from looking at the varying fortunes of this weekend's openers. Summer standards Paranoia and Kick-Ass 2 have both fallen by the wayside (with a dismal $3.5 million opening in the first case and a disappointing $13.6 million debut in the latter). Jobs, which was made with awards in mind, has misfired with a $6.7 million start. But one film has risen above the rest on the basis of a compelling story and some high-class acting. Lee Daniels' The Butler will top the chart this weekend with around $25 million, according to Weinstein Co.'s Sunday estimate. That's the first film from the distributor to top the chart since Inglourious Basterds did this weekend in 2009. That film also had Oscar aspirations, and The Butler might well follow a similar course in Awards Season: some impressive nominations but ultimately not top honors. More...
