How the 'The Nun' overcame bad reviews to be a box-office hit

"The Nun" surpassed expectations and had the biggest opening at the box office this past weekend of any of "The Conjuring" movies, despite being the worst-reviewed film in the series. Jeff Bock, senior box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations, credits the success to a lackluster summer for horror and the movie's foreign appeal. The movie stars Mexican actor Demián Bichir and its biggest foreign opening was in Mexico. Bock also made box-office predictions for this weekend's "The Predator" and next month's "Halloween."   "The Nun," the latest movie in "The Conjuring" horror franchise, raked in $53.5 million this past weekend, the...

Marcus Brigstocke review – horned comic fails to give devil his due

Scarlet of skin and horny of head, plays Lucifer in his new show Devil May Care, delivering dispatches from hell and reflections on the changing criteria for damnation. Props to the Radio 4 man for trying something different but, for his sins, it doesn’t quite come off. The character is flimsy, frequently disappearing behind Brigstocke himself. Elsewhere, he is too often a vessel for cliches and snarky observational comedy. This Lucifer is just a suit and a supercilious voice. “I successfully sued God for a fall in the workplace,” he leers, and there are some promising gags about our host’s...
