“The Upside,” the American remake of “The Intouchables” starring Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman, opened to $1.1 million in Thursday box office previews on 2,460 screens. The strong number for a January release puts it ahead of Thursday preview numbers for several other recent family comedies, including Mark Wahlberg’s recent “Instant Family,” which brought in $550,000 in an admittedly more crowded holiday release season. The film from director Neil Burger and released by STXfilms is projected to bring in $10 million this weekend from approximately 3,080 screens with the hope that strong word of mouth might make for a surprise hit in the early weeks of January, but it does hold just a 34 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. By comparison, the similar 2014 dramedy “St. Vincent” starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy opened to $7.7 million and went on to gross $44 million domestically.

It is now being distributed by STXfilms along with the TWC offshoot Lantern Entertainment. It currently has a 40 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. “The Upside” opens opposite holiday releases still holding over, including the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic “On the Basis of Sex” opening in wider release. Also releasing this weekend are Columbia Pictures’ family adventure “A Dog’s Way Home” and the Entertainment Studios sci-fi film “Replicas,” starring Keanu Reeves. “A Dog’s Way Home” earned $535,000 from Thursday night previews starting at 5 PM from 2,657. The film stars Ashley Judd and Edward James Olmos in the story of a dog who goes on a 400-mile journey to reunite with its owner.

Kevin Hart also defends Bryan Cranston's casting as a disabled character.
Bryan Cranston has weighed in on a long-running debate in the film industry about representation on screen, responding to a question about whether able-bodied actors should play disabled individuals in films and TV. Cranston, who plays a quadriplegic in “The Upside” opposite Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman opening this weekend, defended his casting to the British Press Association. “As actors we’re asked to play other people,” Cranston said via the BBC. “If I, as a straight, older person, and I’m wealthy, I’m very fortunate, does that mean I can’t play a person who is not wealthy, does that mean I can’t play a homosexual?” Also Read: Bryan Cranston Is Game for 'Breaking Bad' Movie But Says Walter White Is Definitely Dead (Video) Cranston said his casting came down to a “business decision” and that playing the part was ultimately a “case of catch-22.” “We live in the world of criticism, if we’re willing to get up and try something, we have to also be willing to take criticism. We’re very aware of the need to expand the opportunities for people with disabilities,” Cranston continued, according to Sky News. “I don’t know, where does the restriction apply, where is the line for that?” In recent months, actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Dwayne Johnson and Joaquin Phoenix have also portrayed disabled characters on screen, in some cases facing outcry and in others kicking off a larger debate over whether only actors who identify a certain way should be allowed to play certain characters.

Scarlett Johansson also faced backlash when it was revealed she would be portraying a transgender man in the film “Rub & Tug,” causing her to exit the project. Ben Whishaw was similarly asked about the debate at the Golden Globes after winning his award for “A Very English Scandal.” “I really believe that actors can embody and portray anything and we shouldn’t be defined only by what we are,” Whishaw said backstage at the Golden Globes. “I would like to see more gay actors playing straight roles.” Read original story Bryan Cranston Calls Playing Disabled Character in ‘The Upside’ a ‘Case of Catch-22’ At TheWrap
