Hellboy (2004 film)
Hellboy is a 2004 American superhero film directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Ron Perlman, loosely based on the Dark Horse Comics graphic novel Hellboy: Seed of Destruction by Mike Mignola. In the film, a demonic beast-turned superhero known as Hellboy secretly works to keep the world safe from paranormal threats with his team, the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense; the film was a minor box office success, was favorably received by critics. A sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, was released on July 11, 2008, with Universal Pictures taking over the distribution. In 1944, with the help of fictional Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin, the Nazis build a dimensional portal off the coast of Scotland and intend to free the Ogdru Jahad—monstrous entities imprisoned in deep space—to aid them in defeating the Allies. Rasputin opens the portal with the aid of his disciples, Ilsa von Haupstein and Obersturmbannführer Karl Ruprecht Kroenen, member of the Thule Society and Adolf Hitler's top assassin.
An Allied team is sent to destroy the portal, guided by a young scientist named Trevor Bruttenholm, well-versed in the occult. The German team is killed and the portal is destroyed—in the process absorbing Rasputin—while Haupstein and Kroenen escape; the Allied team discovers. Sixty years FBI agent John Myers is transferred to the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense at the request of Bruttenholm, where he meets the adult Hellboy and a psychic, amphibious humanoid named Abe Sapien, he learns that a third BPRD member, Liz Sherman, has checked into a mental hospital to protect others from her volatile pyrokinetic abilities. Despite regular visits and coaxing from Hellboy, she is determined not to return. Kroenen and Haupstein resurrect Rasputin in the mountains of Moldova and the three unleash a demon known as Sammael. Rasputin imbues Sammael with the power to reincarnate and split his essence, causing two of the creature's eggs to hatch and mature each time one dies. Rasputin visits Liz as she sleeps, activating her powers and destroying the hospital.
Myers convinces her to return to the Bureau. Sammael's ability to multiply becomes a problem, as Hellboy kills it, dozens are born. Concluding the eggs are in the sewer, Hellboy and several FBI agents go down the sewer to destroy them. Abe is injured while looking for the eggs. Kroenen, whose mutilated body is run by mechanical parts, shuts himself down, pretending to be defeated. Kroenen's body is brought to the bureau. FBI Director Tom Manning is angered by Hellboy's recklessness. Myers takes Liz out to talk. Hellboy, covertly follows them, leaving the bureau unguarded. Kroenen reanimates himself and Rasputin appears at the bureau, confronting Professor Bruttenholm. Rasputin offers him a vision of the future, showing Hellboy is the agent that will destroy the world. However, Bruttenholm tells Rasputin. Rasputin, respecting Bruttenholm for raising Hellboy, directs a quick death. Bruttenholm dies clutching a rosary. Manning takes over the BPRD and locates Rasputin's mausoleum in an old cemetery outside Moscow, Russia.
A team led by Manning and Hellboy swiftly becomes separated. Hellboy and Manning defeat him. Hellboy reunites with Liz and Myers at Sammael's new nest. Liz uses her pyrokinetic powers to incinerate their eggs. Hellboy and Myers lose consciousness and are captured by Rasputin and Haupstein. Rasputin sucks Liz's soul out of her body tells Hellboy to release the Ogdru Jahad in return for her soul. Hellboy awakens his true power as Anung un Rama, causing his horns to regrow, begins to release the Ogdru Jahad. Myers breaks out of his restraints, subdues Haupstein, reminds Hellboy that he can defy his destiny. Remembering his true self and what Bruttenholm brought him up to be, Hellboy breaks his horns, reseals the Ogdru Jahad and stabs Rasputin with one of his broken horns. Instead of dying, Rasputin is possessed by a creature from the Ogdru Jahad; the tentacled Behemoth grows to immense size, killing him and Haupstein. Hellboy allows himself to be swallowed by the beast detonates a belt of hand grenades and destroys it from the inside.
He whispers something in Liz's ear and she is revived. When she asks how her soul was returned, Hellboy replies that he said "Hey, you on the other side, let her go, because for.. for her I'll cross over, you'll be sorry'. Liz and Hellboy share a kiss. Hellboy's film score was composed by Marco Beltrami. Hellboy had its world premiere at the Mann Village Theater in Westwood, Los Angeles, California on March 30, 2004.

To survive, he is reading the obituaries and trying to convince the widows that the deceased purchased a painting shortly before dying. Things take an ugly turn. Not only does Gene not fall for it, but he tries to have his henchmen beat Art up. Art escapes by hiding in the Rolls Royce of Betty Kerner, Gene's estranged two-time ex-wife and wealthy heiress. Betty is excited about helping the handsome stranger, the two end up shortly thereafter making love.
Betty being impulsive, she wants to marry Art in two weeks. Because of the heiress fortune the news makes the tabloids. Stuck between Betty who won't change her mind and Gene who still loves his ex-wife, Art doesn't like the idea of getting married with such short notice but decides to play along for now. One morning, at Betty's mansion, Art seductively enters her shower naked, only to realize it's not Betty who's in there but her sister Liz, an art professor. If Art is attracted to Liz, she stays cold and distant, seeing him as nothing more than a gigolo who hit the jackpot. Art decides to invent a fake twin brother Bart, a painter who just got back from Italy. Bart and Liz hit it off while Gene still tries to romance Betty. Bart and Liz can't stop talking about everything, he plays with her dog and invites her to Manny's studio when he's not in, pretending to show her his art; when Liz's favorite painting in the studio turns out to have been made by Art, Bart gives her the painting. Thanks to his imaginary twin brother, Art manages to pursue a romance with both sisters.

When Art proposes Gene to leave town, Gene tells him to go ahead with the wedding and threatens to break one bone for each tear Betty cries. After they leave, Liz arrives to the studio; when Bart tells her he is Art, that he fell in love when he saw her in the shower and tries to kiss her, Liz thinks Art is trying to make a pass at her, not realizing Bart doesn't exist. On the wedding day, Liz tells Bart his "brother" tried to kiss her, that the wedding should be called off. Bart needs to "confront" Art in a study alone, with Liz and Gene listening outside -and, unbeknownst to anyone by Betty through the phone; when Gene enters the study, he confronts a lonely Art, again threatens him if he doesn't marry Betty. He tells him that what Art or himself want is irrelevant, that the only thing that matters is Betty's happiness. During the wedding ceremony, shaken by Gene's selfless devotion, calls the wedding off and falls in Gene's arms acknowledging she still love him too. Gene and Betty elope. In the general confusion, Liz sees her dog wanting to play with Art and realizes Art and Bart are the same person.

Batman Begins is a 2005 superhero film based on the DC Comics character Batman, directed by Christopher Nolan and written by Nolan and David S. Goyer, it stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Cillian Murphy, Tom Wilkinson, Rutger Hauer, Ken Watanabe, Morgan Freeman. The film reboots the Batman film series, telling the origin story of Bruce Wayne from the death of his parents to his journey to become Batman and his fight to stop Ra's al Ghul and the Scarecrow from plunging Gotham City into chaos. Following the poor reception of Batman & Robin there was a series of unsuccessful attempts to resurrect Batman on the big screen which put the Batman film series on hold for nearly eight years and Goyer began work on the film in early 2003. Aiming for a darker, more realistic tone compared to the previous films, a primary goal for their vision was to engage the audience's emotional investment in both the Batman and Bruce Wayne identities of the lead character.
The film, principally shot in the United Kingdom and Chicago, relied on traditional stunts and miniature effects, with computer-generated imagery being used in a minimal capacity compared to other action films. Comic book storylines such as The Man Who Falls, Batman: Year One and Batman: The Long Halloween served as inspiration. Batman Begins opened on June 2005, in the United States and Canada in 3,858 theaters, it grossed over $48 million in its opening weekend in North America grossing over $374 million worldwide. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Cinematography and three BAFTA awards, it was followed by The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, which constitute The Dark Knight Trilogy. As a child, Bruce Wayne falls down into a dry well and is attacked by a swarm of bats, subsequently developing chiroptophobia. While watching an opera with his parents and Martha, Bruce becomes frightened by performers masquerading as bats and asks to leave. Outside, mugger Joe Chill murders Bruce's parents in front of him.
Orphaned, Bruce is raised by Alfred Pennyworth, while Chill is imprisoned. Fourteen years Chill is paroled in exchange for testifying against Gotham City mafia boss Carmine Falcone. Bruce intends to murder Chill. Bruce's childhood friend, law school student Rachel Dawes, berates him for attempting to undermine the justice system, saying that his father would be ashamed. Bruce confronts Falcone. Bruce decides to travel the world and learn how to confront injustice, training himself in combat and the understanding of criminal minds. While serving a prison sentence for theft in Bhutan, he meets Henri Ducard, who trains him in ninja methods as a member of the League of Shadows, led by Ra's al Ghul. After completing his training and purging his fears, Bruce learns the League intends to destroy Gotham, believing it to be corrupt, decadent and beyond saving. Bruce rejects both the League's cause and its edict that killing is necessary, burning down their temple during his escape. Ra's is killed by falling debris.
Bruce returns to Gotham intent on fighting crime. He takes an interest in his family's company, Wayne Enterprises, being taken public by the unscrupulous William Earle. Company archivist Lucius Fox, a friend of Bruce's father since deposed by Earle, allows Bruce access to prototype defense technologies, including a protective bodysuit and a armored car, the Tumbler. Bruce publicly poses as a shallow playboy to allay suspicion, while setting up a base in the caves beneath Wayne Manor and taking up the vigilante identity of "Batman". Batman intercepts a drug shipment, provides Rachel with evidence against Falcone, inspires and enlists Sergeant James Gordon, one of the few honest cops left in Gotham, to arrest him. In prison, Falcone meets Dr. Jonathan Crane, a corrupt psychologist whom he has helped smuggle drugs into Gotham, threatens to reveal his complicity if Crane does not declare him mentally unfit for trial. Crane puts on a scarecrow mask and sprays Falcone with a fear-inducing hallucinogen that drives him insane, has him transferred to Arkham Asylum.
While investigating "the Scarecrow", Batman is left incapacitated. He is given an antidote developed by Fox; when Rachel accuses Crane of corruption, Crane reveals that he has been pouring his fear-inducing drug into Gotham's water supply. He drugs Rachel with it, but Batman subdues and interrogates Crane, who claims to work for Ra's al Ghul. Batman evades the police to get Rachel to safety, administers her the antidote, gives her a vial of it for Gordon and another for mass production. Ducard reveals himself to be the true Ra's al Ghul. Having stolen a powerful microwave emitter from Wayne Enterprises, he plans to vaporize Gotham's water supply, rendering Crane's drug airborne and causing mass hysteria that will destroy the city, he sets Wayne Manor aflame and leaves Bruce to die. Ra's loads the microwave emitter onto Gotham's monorail system, intending to release the drug as the train travels toward the city's central water source. Batman indirectly reveals his identity to her, he pursues Ra's onto the monorail and fights him as Gordon uses the Tumbler's cannons to destroy a section of the track.
Batman refuses to kill Ra's, but chooses not to save him, gliding from
A box office or ticket office is a place where tickets are sold to the public for admission to an event. Patrons may perform the transaction at a countertop, through a hole in a wall or window, or at a wicket. By extension, the term is used in the context of the film industry, as a synonym for the amount of business a particular production, such as a film or theatre show, receives. Box office business can be measured in the terms of the number of tickets sold or the amount of money raised by ticket sales; the projection and analysis of these earnings is important for the creative industries and a source of interest for fans. This is predominant in the Hollywood movie industry; the term is attested since 1786 from sales of boxes. The sense of "total sales" is attested from 1904. A folk etymology is that this derives from Elizabethan theatre, where theatre admission was collected in a box attached to a long stick, passed around the audience. However, first attestation is about 200 years making this unlikely.
There are numerous websites that monitor box-office receipts, such as BoxOffice, Box Office India, Box Office Mojo, ShowBIZ Data and The Numbers which provide detailed information for many movies but have less and incomplete data for older movies due to the history of how box office reporting evolved in the U. S. and the availability of this information prior to the introduction of the internet. Although other publications have published box office data over the years, the longevity and regular reporting of Variety makes it a significant source for older box office reporting for the US market and US films. During the 1920s, Variety reported box office grosses for films by theatre for certain U. S. cities. In 1946, they started to publish a weekly National Box Office survey on page 3 indicating the performance of the week's hits and flops based on the box office results of 25 key U. S. cities. During the 1930s, Variety published charts of the top performing films of the year and has maintained this tradition annually since.
In 1946, they published a list of All-Time Top Grossers with a list of films that had achieved or gave promise of earning $4,000,000 or more in domestic rentals. They would publish an updated all-time list annually for over 50 years in their anniversary edition each January; the anniversary edition would normally contain the list of the top performing films of the year. Some publications such as BoxOffice magazine published box office performance expressed as a percentage compared to regular films Some of the early annual reports from Variety used this format. From the 1930s, BoxOffice magazine published a Barometer issue in January giving the performance of movies for the year expressed as percentages; the first issue of The Motion Picture Almanac in 1929 used this format to rank money makers. In the late 1960s, Variety used an IBM 360 computer to collate the grosses from their weekly reports of 22 to 24 U. S. cities from January 1, 1968. The data came from up to 800 theatres which represented around 5% of the U.
S. cinema population at the time but around one-third of the total U. S. box office grosses. In 1969, they started to publish the computerized box office compilation of the top 50 grossing films of the week based on this data. "The Love Bug" was the number one in the first chart published for the week ending April 16, 1969. The chart was discontinued in 1990. In 1976, Marcy Polier, an employee of the Mann theater chain, set up Centralized Grosses to collate U. S. daily box office data on a centralized basis rather than each theater chain collating their own numbers from other theater chains. The company became National Gross Service Entertainment Data, Inc.. Except for disclosures by the studios on successful films, total domestic box office gross information for films was not available until National Gross Service started to collate this data around 1981; the collation of grosses led to wider reporting of domestic box office grosses for films. Arthur D. Murphy at Variety was one of the first to organize and chart that information and report it in a meaningful form.
During the 1980s, Daily Variety started to publish a weekly chart of the domestic box office grosses of films as compared to the Top 50 chart in Variety, based on a sample of key markets. The focus of a film's performance became its box office gross rather than the rentals that Variety continued to report annually. Prior to the tracking of these grosses, domestic or worldwide box office grosses is not available for many earlier films so the only domestic or worldwide data available is still the rental figures. In 1984, EDI started to report Canadian grosses as well and by 1985 was reporting data for 15,000 screens. In 1987, EDI set up a database of box office information which included data on certain films back to 1970. By 1991, all U. S. studios had agreed to share their complete data reports with EDI. In 1990, EDI opened an office in the UK, moved into Germany in 1993 and Spain in 1995 reporting box office data for those markets. EDI were acquired by ACNielsen Corporation in 1997 for $26 million and became Nielsen EDI.
In December 2009, with its acquisition of Nielsen EDI for $15 million, measurement company Rentrak became the sole provider of worldwide box office ticket sales revenue and attendance information, used by many of the websites noted above. For a list of films which are major box-office hits, see List of highest-grossing films. Films that are considered to have been unsuccessful at the box office are called box office bombs or box off
