Starring Bradley Cooper and directed by Clint Eastwood, Warner Bros. Pictures is celebrating its "American Sniper" this Martin Luther King Jr. holiday as the film is currently setting several January box office records. Estimates have the film, which includes appearances by "General Hospital's" Billy Miller (Jason Morgan) and "Nashville's" Eric Close, taking in $89.5 million over the three-day weekend and $105.3 million over the four-day holiday weekend, according to Box Office Mojo.
When several major theater chains stated they wouldn't be showing "The Interview" upon its Christmas Day release, following threats by hackers who claimed responsibility for the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment last month, after it became abundantly clear that the film was at the center of a massive cyber attack on the studio, Sony Pictures reversed its decision to pull the film altogether and instead opted last week to release the film as planned. As a result, the film has raked in roughly $15 million in online sales and rentals, with more than 2 million downloads, and an estimated $2.8 million in ticket sales from smaller theater chains.

Now that the Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone, Christmas Day will be all the rage this holiday season. If you're not interested in staying home to open your presents and spend time indoors with the family, why not go "Into The Woods" with soap alums Billy Magnussen (ex-Casey Hughes, "As The World Turns") and Mackenzie Mauzy (ex-Phoebe Forrester, "The Bold and the Beautiful")? This holiday season, Disney presents a new whimsical film starring Meryl Streep as The Witch in a modern day twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, while intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. Featured tales include Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel — all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.
