Thanks to some hard work by Ritchie Steven, weeks of box office results have been posted on the message board. With that comes a few things. One of them is updating the Talent Scores for the top people in those movies. And, after some more work, those talents have there TS now updated.

It should be little surprise that many of the films earned good grosses. With fewer movies being released, more of the box office bucks result for individual films. And, with higher totals, the likelihood of an increase to TS results. In fact, all talents processed had an increase… except for one. Seth Rogen, star of Flip Brothers’ Horror Hours, saw a decrease in TS from 14.859 to 14.631. Fortunately for Rogen, he saw his TS increase to a whopping 16.694 for his participation in Miracle Pictures’ All Up In That Junk.

Some talents became new members of the 10+ Club, seeing their scores rise to 10 or greater: Nicole Kidman in Seeker (PLS), Hulk Hogan in UWC Monday Metal (FB), John Waters and Elizabeth Banks for All Up In That Junk (MP) and Dan Byrd in Tornado (HP).

Byrd’s rise was from 5.314, thanks to a leading role in the $426,518,993 grossing film.

In addition to this Talent Score work, payments will be made shortly to the studios for their films.

“I smell more than a billion dollars in payments” stated one HTG admin.

UPDATE: The remaining weeks of Box Office have been worked up. More talents joining the 10+ Club are: Steve James, Charlize Theron and Steven Seagal for XCC: In For a Penny (PLS) (Theron becoming the second highest TS actress in HTG); Sofia Coppola, Bill Murray, Zooey Deschanel and Emma Watson for Space Travel on a Budget (MP) (Zooey now the third highest TS actress. Adrien Brody just missed out making a 10 TS).

ANOTHER UPDATE: “More than a billion dollars” was an understatement. Just over five billion dollars was paid to studios for exiting films. Of course, producers must be paid from that money. However, these payouts may be the largest in HTG history.

The past two weeks have seen three new movies in HTG Theaters. Learn more about them…

The Gunfighter
The first new movie from The Dark Horse Films since 2013’s The Slave. Directed by Clint Eastwood, the western stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Christian Bale, Edward Norton, and Jude Law. The movie has had quite an impressive advertising campaign on the forum. The film was released by mega studio Miracle Pictures.

Camp Lleh
The second release by the Hollywood Film Fund in recent months, Camp Lleh is a horror comedy by new producer Joseph Akers and director Drew Goddard. The movie stars Lea Michele, Johnny Depp, Jodie Foster, Clint Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Jayden Smith, Emma Roberts, and Dylan O’Brien.

Wrestling Spirit
Director Karyn Kusama teams up with experienced/award winning HTG  Producer Lucian on a documentary that follows former gymnast Lucy Loo as she begins her professional wrestling career. The short movie is narrated by former wrester CM Punk.

These are HTG Theater’s latest movie releases, but there are currently more than 20 movies in HTG Theaters. Watch one tonight!

It seems that Kermit the Frog is worthy of two franchises, not just one.

The ownership or lease of a franchise is necessary in HTG Hollywood in order to publish work on that property. Recently, newcomer JonesofFlorida asked about the price of Sesame Street, the beloved program catering to children for decades. The price given was 200 million dollars. (That would give a buzz bonus of +2 to the vote average.)

But there would be a question… How would this affect an already priced franchise, The Muppets?

The Muppets have already appeared in HTG as a TV series and a two-story movie.

After some quick opinions, it was decided that there would be two separate franchises with the Jim Henson-based characters. The ones that seemed best suited for each franchise would belong to it. There would be one overlap… Kermit himself, who tends to appear in both properties.

And good news for Lucian Carter of Ship of Fooles Productions and Possum Lodge Studios… The price of The Muppets would increase to 250 mil, with no cost to the owner. That would give the buzz bonus an addition with future releases.

JonesofFlorida has mentioned a studio chief interested in a Sesame Street film. And Lucian has assigned his long-rumored Muppets vs. Dragons crossover (with Dungeons and Dragons) to a producer.

So it seems that there’s good news for all, because there will be more product in theatres soon. Don’t forget to visit the theatre page and catch up on the already released flicks!

After a long career in HTG Hollywood, fanboy delight Natalie Portman has finally surpassed the 10 barrier for her Talent Score. Thanks to the success of Baseball Mogul’s comedy S***ball 2, the actress now has a TS of 11.000.

“It’s a great feeling” the star stated during a recent meet and greet. “Maybe now I can buy a decent pair of shoes or something. My thanks go out to Pedro and the Amyland crew for letting me appear in their film.”

Although not currently advertised for another HTG movie soon, rumor has it that Miss Portman is anxious to again be a part of an ALS film. The parody “The Color of Amy” is in pre-production. Another of Pedro’s infamous dog movies, talents voice the parts of the canine characters. The movie parallels the Paul Newman/Tom Cruise classic “The Color of Money.”

“If I could land a role in the movie, I’d be tickled” the actress concluded.

No release plans have yet been provided by Baseball Mogul Productions.

So much Box Office, so little time. With so many movies pulling in big numbers, as we learn how more and more of these movies are doing, let’s take a look at a few of the recent movies in theaters.

Tina The Movie
It is always great to see new producers and give them a warm welcome into HTG Hollywood. Tina The Movie is a bio pic of Tina Turner by Simply the Best Productions and first time producer Richard Van Den. The film is the first effort from the Hollywood Film Fund (for New Producers) in years, and with a recent influx of new producers, this might be a great time for the “Indie Studio” to become more active. Back to the movie, it stars the great Angela Bassett and Denzel Washington and was directed by Jason Reitman. Check out the movie and give Richard some pointers for future movies.

XCC: Out With a Bang
Possum Lodge Studios and Ship of Fooles Productions joins with director Steve James for the fifth part of their documentary film series XXC, with XCC: Out With a Bang. With the top two stars being Steven Seagal and Howie Mandel, can you honestly tell me you aren’t in the least intrigued with what the movie holds? Seagal has been with the series from the beginning as a color commentator (and boy is he colorful), while Mandel joined the series with the third entry, XCC: National Pride.

Meet The Squad
So we have focused on a film by a new producer and a veteran, now lets take a look at a comedy by a returning producer, Safron (who produced 8 HTG movies in his initial run, including Remember, Involved, Rookie Mistake, 8 Kilos, and TV shows including Four, Pluse, and others!). Meet The Squad stars a young cast including Logan Lerman, Aaron Johnson, Robert Sheehan, Nick Robinson, and Ezra Miller, and was filmed in a light-hearted documentary style similar to The Office. This is director Sofia Coppola’s second movie after Space Travel on a Budget.

This is just a sampling of some of the 20 movies in HTG Theaters. What are you excited to check out?
