Movie News in 60 Seconds: Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs; ‘Hunger Games’ Still Box Office Champ; Harry Potter Studio Tour Opens in London

New Year's Eve

Indie Jobs: Well, he’s big on Twitter, so we suppose that makes Ashton Kutcher the logical choice (?!) to play the legendary Steve Jobs in an upcoming bio-pic titled -- with great imagination -- Jobs. The independent film will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote); filming is slated to begin in May. Another bio-pic of Jobs is also in the works, based on the recent biography by Walter Isaacson; perhaps that one will be titled Steve? [Variety]

Box Office Winner: Despite dropping 60%, The Hunger Games easily topped the box office chart, raking in an estimated $61.1 million for a total of $251 million in the U.S. The film’s second-weekend total is the seventh-highest ever and places it about on part with the first entry in the Twilight series. Among debuting films, Wrath of the Titans made $34.2 million (a little more than half what Clash of the Titans scored two years ago) and Tarsem’s first chidren’s film, Mirror Mirror, starring Julia Roberts, earned $19 million.

Get Thee to Britain: The Harry Potter film series may have ended, but a new tour provides fans with the opportunity to get up close and personal with “sets, props, costumes, models and special effects exhibits” from the movies. All you have to do is get  to London, England, book your tickets, and then travel about 20 miles to the Warner Bros. Studios, where the “Making of Harry Potter” attraction is located; it’s a three-hour, self-guided extravaganza. [Los Angeles Times]
