Forecast (cont.): 'Night at the Museum,' 'Annie' Open Ahead of Christmas Holiday

11 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

<< Continued from 'Forecast: Will Moviegoers Show Up One Last Time for 'The Hobbit'?Playing at 3,783 theaters, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is also aiming to be the final chapter in its franchise: the poster's tagline reads "One Final Night To Save the Day."After opening on this same weekend back in 2006, the original Night at the Museum wound up earning a massive $250.9 million. Two-and-a-half years later, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian wasn't quite as impressive, earning $177.2 million (down 29 percent from the first movie).There's been a five-and-a-half year gap between the second and the third installment, which begs the question: does anyone care about this series anymore? Star Ben Stiller has been down this road before with Little Fockers, which opened six years after its predecessor. That didn't work out so well, as Little Fockers wound up earning 47 percent less than Meet the Fockers. »

Annie movie review: abandoned child

12 hours ago | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Quvenzhané Wallis is adorable and Cameron Diaz is a hoot. But the movie is energetic yet bland, inoffensive and instantly forgettable. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

She’s not an orphan in this latest version of her musical-comedy adventure: Annie is a foster kid. At least, the “It’s a Hard Knock Life” song substitutes “when you’re a foster kid” for “when you’re in an orphanage” in the lyrics… which are pretty much the only bits of the lyrics that are intelligible (other than “it’s a hard knock life”). There’s something very desperate and frenzied in this 21st-century updating of the story of the spunky little parentless girl who wins over a gazillionaire, and it’s not, oddly, anything to do with the economic echoes today of the original stage »

Cameron Diaz and Bobby Cannavale Talk Annie, the Fun Shoot, Collaborating with Will Gluck, the Songs, and More

14 hours ago | | See recent news »

Opening this weekend is Will Gluck‘s modern reimagining of the Broadway classic Annie.  The film stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) in the title role as a young, happy, street-tough foster kid living with the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) who is taken in by New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  The film also stars Rose ByrneBobby CannavaleAdewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and David Zayas.  For more on Annie, watch the trailer or these five clips and eleven minutes of behind-the-scenes footage. At the recent New York City press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Cameron Diaz and Bobby Cannavale.  They talked about collaborating with Will Gluck, contemporizing the film, the new songs, if a lot of friends that wanted to visit them on the set, how much fun they had making the film, and a lot more. »

'Annie' (2014) Movie Review

14 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The story of the little red-headed orphan who warms the heart of a billionaire is one of the most famous in all of musical theater history. This is mainly due to the fact it has inspired countless little girls to annoyingly sing. The story has already been given two screen adaptations, one for the big screen in 1982 by John Huston and one for the small screen in 1999 by Rob Marshall. So, instead of Sony trying to adapt a musical that has not made it to the screen yet, they have decided to go to the Annie well once more. But this time the plot, setting, and music have been updated for 2014. The result is one of the most charmless movie musicals I have seen in some time. I knew I was in for trouble when the first scene of the film contains two groan-worthy winks at the audience (something that »

'Annie's' movie-within-a-movie is an obvious 'Twilight' parody

15 December 2014 1:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Have I mentioned that the "Annie" trailers are terrible? It's true! You know it. I know it. Cameron Diaz knows it. I will say that I've heard some not terrible things about the movie, but I choose not to believe it. Me? I'd rather watch Phil Lord's "Moonquake Lake," the movie-within-a-movie featured in the musical remake that stars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis in a story about a space-girl and her Earth boyfriend and also Rihanna as Megan Fox in "Jennifer's Body." There's a water creature too! This is, of course, a spoof of "Twilight" and its assorted Ya brethren, from the flannel shirts and woodsy setting to that horrific dialogue ("Things happen for a reason." "Says the boy who doesn't have to go home to the moon every night.") And thank goodness: this explains Sia and Beck's soundtrack contribution. I was having real trouble with that. (Vulture) »

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Martin Freeman joins the fellowship of Studio 8H

15 December 2014 8:39 AM, PST | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

For a guy who's the star of a billion-dollar franchise, Martin Freeman isn't exactly Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt—though he did get a laugh out of jokingly referring to himself as the "funny George Clooney." But the unassuming Brit who plays the clever Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit is not to be underestimated—especially as a first-time host on Saturday Night Live. The original lovelorn Office drone in Ricky Gervais' groundbreaking series delivered one of the best episodes of the season, working at a Middle-earth paper company, marrying a Wnba superstar, and chilling with his British chums, Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman. »

Annie Review 1 of 5

Open Gallery


Lorem ipsum 1 of 5

When the first trailer for Sony’s remake of Annie hit the web, my gut response was to involuntarily cringe in my seat. The brightly colored preview hit every wrong note for me, promising a traditional take on the play peppered with kid-friendly (read: unsubtle and forced) jokes and heavily auto-tuned musical numbers. So, admittedly, it wasn’t with great enthusiasm that I finally sat down to watch the final product.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not someone who usually recoils from song-and-dance productions, or someone who haughtily looks down upon those movies that try their damnedest to leave you tapping your toes with a big, stupid grin on your face. What I am, however, is someone who’ll defend until my dying breath the importance of being earnest. And that is one trait that this new Annie lacks almost entirely. »

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher parody Twilight in fake movie trailer

14 December 2014 10:45 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher play a pair of tormented lovers in the fake trailer for MoonQuake Lake.

The trailer, which is similar to Twilight, was tweeted by The Lego Movie co-director Phil Lord.

Rihanna also appears in the trailer, which Lord added would be shown in cinemas.

Proud to unveil our next project... Catch a sneak peek when you see #AnnieMovie in theaters December 19th.

— philip lord (@philiplord) December 13, 2014

The trailer will actually appear within the new Annie remake, in a scene containing a movie premiere.

The fake film even has its own website, which lists the same release date as Annie (December 19).

The title MoonQuake Lake also relates to a song on the Annie soundtrack, which is performed by Sia & Beck.

Film Review: ‘Annie’

14 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While there are several possible good reasons to remake the Depression-set musical “Annie” in 2014, none of them seem to have informed Will Gluck’s overblown yet undernourished treatment. More of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream “modern.” Featuring a multiracial all-star cast with few pretensions to dancing expertise, the film replaces choreography with metronomic editing, while one-note overstatement drowns out character development. Even without the Sony hacking scandal that caused it to leak online early, “Annie” would seem headed for a lackluster Christmas bow.

The film begins promisingly with a pre-credits sequence wherein Gluck acknowledges the obvious parallel between the Great Depression and the currently widening rich/poor divide: A schoolroom show-and-tell produces a standard-issue, red-haired “Annie A,” only to replace her with an afro’d “Annie B” (Quvenzhane Wallis, »

'MoonQuake Lake' Parody Trailer with Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher

13 December 2014 2:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's unclear if Mila Kunis is supposed to be parodying her Jupiter Jones role from Jupiter Ascending with a new trailer that hit earlier today, but it certainly seems that way. This sneak peek is for a young adult sci-fi drama entitled MoonQuake Lake, and it features Mila Kunis and her real-life husband Ashton Kutcher. But don't worry, it's fake.

The Lego Movie director Phil Lord tweeted out the MoonQuake Lake trailer earlier today, but it has not been confirmed that he directed it. A soapy take on Twilight that also features Rihanna, the trailer is actually featured in the movie Annie.

In a scene from the reboot, Annie, played by Quvenzhan&#233 Wallis, and the other orphans are invited to a movie premiere. And the actual title MoonQuake Lake is reference in a song on the&#160Annie&#160soundtrack performed by Sia & Beck. &#160You can watch the full trailer here:

'Annie' Star Jamie Foxx Celebrates Quvenzhane Wallis' Golden Globe Nom

11 December 2014 4:25 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Many stars woke up to the good news this morning that they had been nominated for a Golden Globe Award. But one pint-sized actress sang and danced her way to her first-ever nomination. At 11 years old, Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy nominee Quvenzhane Wallis is the youngest actor up for the golden statuette this year.

Et caught up with Quvenzhane soon after she learned of the nomination. Her Annie co-star Golden Globe winner Jamie Foxx even stopped by to congratulate her!

"She is so great at what she does you forget she's only been here 11 years," Jamie gushed to Et. "For people to look at the art and award you, not with a pat on the back or a good critique, you get nominated for a Golden Globe. How many celebrities, actors and actresses, have gone through Hollywood and never gotten that opportunity?... It's mind blowing."

Best of Late Night TV: Mark Wahlberg's Game of Slap Jack and Steve Carell's Barber Shop Quartet (Video)

10 December 2014 10:06 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

The time has come for a game of Slap Jack with Mark Wahlberg and Jimmy Fallon! Basically, it's like Blackjack -- only at the end of each round the winner gets to slap the loser with a giant prosthetic hand. And yes, it took Marky Mark less than two minutes to make a crack about Ben Affleck counting cards. Fair enough.

So, Jimmy Fallon and Steve Carell have formed a Barbershop Quartet called The Rag Time Gals and it's completely amazing. Much like their performance of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing." You're welcome, world!

Sia and Quvenzhané Wallis get a little too happy with classic 'Annie' song

10 December 2014 11:28 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After being nominated for a fistful of Grammys, Sia isn't about to rest on her laurels, even if she needs Little Orphan Annie to do most of the work for her.  The "Chandelier" singer/songwriter plays an integral part in the soundtrack to the upcoming "Annie" remake, and for the album's first single, Sia offers up her own unique take on the familiar jam "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile." Stripped of all its Dixieland-via-Broadway trappings, "Smile" becomes a tropical-flavored dance jam in Sia's hands.  The video for the song finds "Annie" star Quvenzhané Wallis and her pint-sized pals running around NYC, trying to coax smiles and high-fives from busy New York types.  What begins as irresistibly cute grows more and more sinister as the relentlessly upbeat and unceasingly cheery video rapidly turns into a giant, city-sized ad for "Annie," culminating in a visit to "Good Morning America, »

The Year of the Supermodel: How Cara, Karlie, and Kendall Became Household Names

10 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

View Photo Gallery It’s been a while since supermodels were household names. In the ’90s, runway icons like  Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Tyra Banks, and Cindy Crawford set a standard for what the model-turned-celebrity could do. The idea reemerged in the mid-2000s when Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, and other Victoria’s Secret Angels translated their skills to reality television, film, and endorsements. Now, in the Insta-era, a new crop of fresh faces is redefining the idea of “supermodel”all over again. And frankly, they’re the most fun group yet.

2014 was the year supermodels came back in a big way. We credit this to fashionistas being more social than ever before, thanks to little apps like Instagram (breakout model Cara Delevingne has 8.5 million followers, while Medieval Times Goddess Chrissy Teigen sits pretty with 1.1 million followers). But it’s also high-profile celebrity friendships and acting gigs that make models A-listers themselves. »

Golden Globe Predictions: Top Film Categories

9 December 2014 3:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association on Thursday morning announces its Golden Globe nominations, which usually include a few curve balls. The celebrity-friendly group divides best picture into both drama (which is competitive this year) and musical/comedy categories (not as much). Here are my predictions, along with alternate takes from Variety‘s Jenelle Riley and Ramin Setoodeh.

The Globes are often a reliable predictor of Oscar nominations, but they don’t line up exactly. Even if movies like “Foxcatcher,” “Interstellar,” “American Sniper” and “Whiplash” don’t show up on their list, they might still get votes from more serious-minded Academy voters.


Motion Picture Drama


The Imitation Game


The Theory of Everything


Setoodeh: I think there will be six nominees in this category, with “Foxcatcher” included.

Riley: I predict “American Sniper” will be nominated, at the expense of “The Theory of Everything.”

Is Pre-Release Piracy a Threat to ‘Annie’s’ Box Office?

9 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The cyber-attackers who broke down Sony Pictures’ digital doors stole five movies and uploaded them to piracy sites — a move that could cost the studio millions of dollars in lost box office and homevideo revenue.

From the time those films popped up on pirate networks on Nov. 27, they had been downloaded a total of 3.71 million times through Dec. 6, according to piracy-tracking firm Excipio. “Fury,” a World War II drama starring Brad Pitt that bowed in mid-October, led the pack with 3.076 million downloads, followed by “Annie” at 316,793. The other pirated movies were the yet-to-be released titles “Still Alice,” “Mr. Turner” and “To Write Love on Her Arms.”

The film that may be most at risk is the “Annie” reboot, starring Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz and Quvenzhane Wallis as the famous orphan. Slated to premiere Dec. 19, it’s the studio’s family entry in the holiday frame. However, analysts said, kid-oriented fare »

Cameron Diaz: How She Hit The 'Annie' High Notes

8 December 2014 3:29 PM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Singing comes with the territory when signing on to star in "Annie."

The musical is responsible for hits that span generations, such as "Tomorrow" and "It's A Hard-Knock Life."

Cameron Diaz gave audiences a first listen to her singing chops in "My Best Friend's Wedding," but her voice has come a long to take on the role of "Annie's" Miss Hannigan.

"The truth is, is that to sing that bad, you have to be able to sing just good enough, right?" Cameron rationalized at the film's NYC premiere on Sunday. "But, ...
