Beyond the Steppes

“Beyond the Steppes” tells the story of a woman’s forced journey to the steppes of Central Asia. Nina, a young Polish woman, is deported with her baby by the Soviet Army in 1940, to the deep hostile lands of the USSR. She has to work in a sovkhoz under the control of the Russian political police.

When her child becomes ill, she leaves on a search to find medications with a group of Kazakh nomads. The film draws the intimate and personal experience of this woman, as she’s forced into exile, struggling against the extreme conditions of this inhuman land.

‘Frozen’ Burries the Competition at the Box Office

Disney’s ‘Frozen’ had an amazing sixth weekend out at the box office this weekend. The animated film earned an impressive $20.7 million. The only other films to have done better their sixth week out were ‘Titanic’ and ‘Avatar.’

‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’ took second place with $18.2 million.

‘The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug’ came in third with $16.3 million, while Scorsese’s ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ followed behind with $13.4 million in fourth place.

The New Year

Budding writer Sunny takes time off from college to tend to her ailing dad in suburban Florida, and after two years, a temp job at a bowling alley has turned into a comfortable rut.

But, when Sunny’s high school rival Isaac returns, her routine is abruptly disrupted. Friendly fire replaces competitive spirit as the pair picks up where they left off, and Sunny realizes the future holds more than a well-stocked shoe counter.

‘Hobbit’ Leads the Weekend Box Office

‘Hobbit’ led the weekend box office yet again, earning $30 million. Disney’s ‘Frozen’ released during an optimal time  for families, and brought in $28.9 million this weekend for the second place slot.

‘Anchorman 2′ snagged the third place spot with $20.2 million.

‘American Hustle’ starring Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Lawrence made $19.6 million, pushing ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ into fifth place.

Scorsese’s ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ didn’t stand a chance against Ron Burgundy and the rest of the films this weekend and consequently took home just $19 million.

‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Too Much or Just Right?

‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ hit theaters with a bang on Christmas Day, earning $9.2 million. The film which cost approximately $125 million to make did not earn enough to beat ‘The Hobbit’ on Dec. 25. ‘Hobbit’ brought in a slightly higher $9.3 million on Christmas, taking the lead at the box office.

Those who thought ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ was going to be a cheery Christmas movie were in for a rude awakening. Moviegoers were exposed to scantily clad women, drug use, and the outrageous behavior of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio). Based on the novel written by the Wolf himself, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ shocked the crowd this week.

Some critics argue that Scorsese pushed the envelope a little too far, while others feel that he correctly portrayed the life of Jordan Belfort. At just under three hours, the film covered all of Belfort’s most memorable moments. From midgets being thrown through an office, to Coco Chanel’s yacht sinking off the coast of Italy, Scorsese truly showed it all.

‘The Hobbit’ Crushes ‘Anchorman 2′

‘The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug’ brought in $31.5  million this weekend, beating Ron Burgundy for the first place spot.

Paramount’s ‘Anchorman 2′ opened with $26.8 million, making it the second place winner.

‘Frozen’ held on to third place with $19.8 million, bringing its domestic total to $191.6 million after being in theaters for four weekends.

Summertime Sadness?

Death wipeouts are one of the many attractions in the release of DESTINATION POINT. Kelly Slater, Tom Curren at a secret beach brake, Bobby Martinez free-surfing is simply amazing, he moves and flows like a creature from the sea.

Ratboy Collins surfing up North point brakes and reef brakes, then he makes a move to Santa Barbara and tracks a fast moving swell to Santa Barbara where he meets up with Dane Reynolds at a sick throbbing wave known as (!). There is also some exclusive footage from MAVERICKS on the biggest day in a few years. FLEA, PETER MEL and ANTHONY TASHNICK go nuts on fifty foot walls.
