25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

13 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

The Big Short Has Added An Insanely Good Cast List

22 April 2015 1:11 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Adam Mckay, best known for his outrageous comedy sensibilities, may be gearing up to deliver a heavyweight drama for Paramount. The Big Short is based on a book by Michael Lewis and tells the story of a group of genius investors who figured out the property bubble was about to self implode and figured out a way to short the market prior to its collapse in 2008. If all of that sounds like it might not translate to screen, bear in mind Lewis' previous books Moneyball and The Blind Side managed to do quite well for themselves after being adapted for the big screen. Joining Adam McKay on the project is the kind of A-List cast the immediately screams Oscar glory come awards season. Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell and Marisa Tomei will be joining Melissa Leo for the film. Production is reportedly already underway in New Orleans. »

The Big Short Starts Shooting With Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt

21 April 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Writer/director Adam McKay is not only funny, but he's passionate about the economic disparity that plagues this country. Aside from the fact that I love most of his movies, I love his political outrage, which I find to be well-honed and persistent but in a way that's not irritating and actually has a chance of reaching people beyond the converted. So while The Big Short looks like it will be markedly less humorous than his other films (on purpose, it's a drama), I'm betting he nails it. And he'll have a lot of great help too. We reported earlier that Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale were onboard the film, and provided a more recent update that Steve Carell had joined the team. Now comes the news that The Big Short has started shooting and that Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei have joined the cast. McKay and Charles Randolph »

‘The Big Short’ has a rather large cast of big name actors

21 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s nothing short about the list of big name actors in the cast for the upcoming movie by Anchorman helmer Adam McKay.

Deadline reported on Tuesday that Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, and Brad Pitt are set to join Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei in McKay’s adaptation of Michael Lewis’ book, The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. The book tells the story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to “short” the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008.

This is McKay’s first dive into large-scale drama after making a name for himself with comedy hits such as Anchorman, The Other Guys, and Step Brothers. He most recently worked with Marvel and Paul Rudd on the script for Ant-Man, which just released its second trailer, and is rumored to be on the shortlist »

21 April 2015 1:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early reports linking Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Brad Pitt and Steve Carell to roles in The Big Short began in January this year, and were finally been verified this morning. Paramount Pictures, New Regency and Plan B Entertainment have ended negotiations with the star-studded ensemble who are all confirmed to appear in the adaptation of Michael Lewis’ best-selling book.

Anchorman helmer Adam McKay is directing this one to the big screen based on a script by Charles Randolph. Despite the dry subject matter, the injection of several A-list names hints at a production geared towards award-savvy audiences.
