The studio behind the female buddy flick "The Heat" is probably hoping the movie will be huge. But there is some controversy overseas about something connected to the film that doesn't appear to be as big.
Open Road Films will release its Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs" on August 16.
The sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" has hit a road block. The in-development follow-up to the hit 1994 comedy was in the works at New Line Cinema, but New Line's parent company, Warner Bros., has dropped the project, EW confirmed Tuesday. THR first reported the news.
In the rude, antic, and brazenly funny "Wedding Crashers" (2005), Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn played overgrown arrested-development cases who won us over from their very first whopping lie onward. At the time, the two actors were already in their mid-30s, but they were still able to mount a bad-boy generational assault against all things civil and decent. "The Internship" reunites Wilson, with his smarm-that-looks-like-sweetness (or is it the other way around?), and Vaughn, with his disaffected fast patter. The audience is still rooting for them ? only this time the two are playing the older, stodgy guys.
How's your year going? Probably not as well as the Rock's.
This fast and airy thriller about a team of four magicians is an engagingly preposterous high-wire act.
I've lost count, but "After Earth" seems like it must be the fourth post-apocalyptic thriller this month. The movie teams Will Smith and his son, Jaden Smith, and it was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, the former maestro-huckster of the twist ending. But Shyamalan's star has fallen, and he has become a glorified gun for hire. The movie takes off from a concept as basic as a videogame, and it sticks to that concept, without surprise.
Over the past few years, Zachary Quinto has established his acting rep by playing Sylar in "Heroes," a couple of memorable roles on "American Horror Story," and, of course, Spock in the last two "Star Trek" movies. So you could describe his transition into producing as, well, "logical." Certainly it has gotten off to an encouraging start. Quinto produced director J.C. Chandor's financial crisis movie Margin Call through the actor's Before the Door company ? the production outfit he runs with partners Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson ? and exec produced Chandor's Robert Redford-starring "All Is Lost," which just screened at Cannes.
Here's what the Memorial Day weekend taught us: America really likes the "Fast & Furious" franchise, but America loves movies.
This year's summer movie season is all about asking "What if?"
Drawing level with the "Star Wars" saga and pulling well ahead of "Shrek," "Ice Age" and "Spider-Man" in the sequel stakes, "The Fast and the Furious" could yet challenge Rocky Balboa, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger for longevity.
As the director of "Pirates of the Caribbean" Nos. 1, 2 and 3, filmmaker Gore Verbinski is intimately familiar with the massive needs of a potential summer blockbuster.
If only what happened in Vegas had stayed in Vegas.
When we think of the perfect summer blockbuster, we think of action -- and July's "The Wolverine" will have more than enough, star Hugh Jackman says.
Summer movie season is Seth Rogen's prime time.
The USS Enterprise picked up steam throughout the weekend, despite a somewhat unimpressive start.
"Star Trek Into Darkness" opens on a primitive planet, where the natives are restless and a volcano, in mid-eruption, traps First Officer Spock (Zachary Quinto) over a boiling ocean of lava.
If second place is the first loser, then this week that's a pretty great place to be.
"Great Gatsby" director Baz Luhrmann isn't the type to be cowed by literary pedigree, not even that of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
On paper, the 1974 version of "The Great Gatsby" had everything.
Ray Harryhausen, the stop-motion animation and special-effects master whose work influenced such directors as Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and George Lucas, has died, according to the Facebook page of the Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation.
Even Tony Stark would be impressed with "Iron Man 3's" incredible domestic opening weekend.
Sony Pictures has started development on the fourth movie in the "Men in Black" franchise, EW has confirmed. The Wrap first reported the news.
After only eight days of release, Iron Man 3 has already surpassed the $300 million mark at the international box office ? and the $200 million Disney/Marvel release is only getting started.
Tony Stark may have started out as a Batman knockoff -- like Bruce Wayne he's a playboy entrepreneur, a mega-rich industrialist who inherited the good life before channeling his anger into homeland security -- but there's no doubt that in the movies Robert Downey Jr. has put clear blue water between Tony and Christian Bale's grim, angst-y Batman.
J.J. Abrams won't say much about the next "Star Wars" film, which he is directing ? though info about casting and the story has piled up in bits and pieces.
In the final weekend before Iron Man 3 kicks off the summer movie season in earnest, Michael Bay's R-rated action comedy Pain & Gain topped a slow weekend at the box office with $20 million from 3,277 theaters, giving it an average of $6,103 per location. The Paramount film achieved only a fraction of the opening weekend grosses of Bay's Transformers films, but it only cost a fraction ? just $26 million ? of those films as well. It's well on its way to profitability.
The timing couldn't be any better, or worse, for Mira Nair's film of Mohsin Hamid's novel, a sympathetic portrait of a gifted, intelligent young Pakistani whose love affair with the American dream ends in disenchantment, mistrust and violence.
