Cara Delevingne May Sing And Surf All Summer Long In Beach Boys Musical

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Are you ready for a Beach Boys musical? Fox 2000 is reportedly moving ahead with All Summer Long, having tapped The Vow helmer Michael Sucsy to sit in the director’s chair on the project, and now we’re hearing that English model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne is in talks for the lead role of Caroline.

Further plot details are being kept under wraps, but Fox 2000 paid $2 million to buy the pitch by Susannah Grant, along with rights to the Beach Boys catalog. All Summer Long is reportedly a 1960s California-set story inspired by the band’s music.

After breaking out as a model for Victoria’s Secret, Burberry and Dkny, Delevingne successfully managed to transition into acting with a small role in Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina. Since then, she’s been keeping busy with a number of high-profile parts.

In the can, Delevingne has mystery thriller London Fields with Johnny Depp, »

Green For Green: Weekend Box Office

10 August 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Amir here, with the weekend’s box office report. Forecasts were uncertain whether Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles still had the appeal to take the multiplex by storm. The turtles are as popular as ever, apparently, crushing Guardians of the Galaxy in its second week. I have no doubt that you’re all sick of me bitch and moan about Michael Bay and Marvel week after week – but see? I have a point; we do have to talk about them every week; there’s no escape. So we’ll skip them for the good news: Boyhood passed 10 million and is still expanding. 

Weekend Box Office

01 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles $65 *New*

02 Guardians Of The Galaxy $41.5 (cum. $175.9)  Review

03 Into The Storm $18 *New*

Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig »

Check Out The First Poster & Trailer For The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

8 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Time to check in again to The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Fox Searchlight Pictures invites you back to Jaipur, India with this new teaser for the film, opening in theaters March 6, 2015.

The sequel sees the return of Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith. Fans of Smith can expect to see the 2-time Oscar winning actress on the big and little screen this autumn and I suspect during the upcoming Awards Season.  She’s nominated again with an Emmy for Supporting Actress (Drama) for “Downton Abbey” and her work on the upcoming film My Old Lady, alongside Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas, is without a doubt Smith’s finest work in years and definitely worth some Oscar attention.

'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Trailer: Richard Gere Books a Stay (Video)

7 August 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Two newcomers stir up trouble in the first trailer for comedy sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. In the film, the eponymous hotel is thriving when two new guests, including Guy (Richard Gere), disrupt the balance, especially since only one room is available. As the trailer reveals, the hotel's other denizens are quick to notice Guy's striking good looks, which leads to some sexy banter.  Meanwhile, there is plenty of bickering and potential romance in store for the characters who return from 2012's sleeper hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, including Douglas (Bill Nighy), Evelyn (Judi Dench) and Muriel

'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Trailer

7 August 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Not all sequels have to be about horror movie monsters and superheroes. Sometimes, even a hotel that caters to senior citizens gets a second chance on the big screen. The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a follow-up to 2012's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which finds Sonny (Dev Patel) attempting to franchise out his hotel, which caters to the 'elderly and beautiful'. The original location only has one remaining vacancy, which causes a problem for new tenants played by Tamsin Greig and Richard Gere, neither of whom are old enough to be staying here, though maybe a little too beautiful. Check it out as Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Judi Dench also return for another stay at the Best Exotic Marigold.

Richard Gere Checks Into 'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' in the New Trailer (Video)

7 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A new trailer for "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" brings back the full cast from the 2012 original, who waste no time cracking wise about their advanced ages.

Hotel manager Sonny (Dev Patel) gets the ball rolling by discussing the ritual of taking a morning roll call, "to ensure that nobody has died in the night." Judi Dench opens up to Maggie Smith with a soul-searching revelation -- "The difference between what we want and what we fear is the width of an eyelash," she muses -- only to have the latter woman admit she didn't even realize Dench was talking.

There's also a brief glimpse of new hotel guest Richard Gere, a dashing American (not a stretch of a role) who charms the female Marigold residents. We're rooting for the saucy woman who not-so-subtly propositioned him to seal the deal by film's end.

In addition to Patel, Dench, and Smith, »

I never saw The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel back in 2011, but those that saw it seemed to think it was pleasing enough and I'm sure Fox Searchlight didn't mind the fact it brought in $136.8 million worldwide on a $10 million budget. So, why not make a sequelc Back for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (yes, that's the title) are Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Richard Gere, Judi Dench, Celia Imrie, Dev Patel, Tamsin Greig, David Strathairn and Penelope Wilton and the plot goes like this: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 (or The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) is the expansionist dream of Sonny Kapoor, and its making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Trailer Features Returning Cast and Richard Gere

7 August 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 is now titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which is an interesting titling scheme.  I know a new hotel is opened in the film, but I also wonder if the title is a bit of meta-commentary on the nature of sequels and that one should temper their expectations lest they assume this installment matches the majesty of the first.  I haven’t seen the first film, so I’m not qualified to say. The sequel was directed by John Madden and written by Ol Parker.  It stars Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle, David Strathairn and Richard Gere.  Hit the jump for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel trailer!  The film hits theaters on March 6th, 2015. Head over to Apple for the HD version. Here's the synopsis for The Second Best Exotic Marigold »

Trailer For The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Promises Another Pleasant Diversion

7 August 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As far as sequels go, one film that most people wouldn’t consider to be begging for one would have to be The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which employed a slew of classy, established thesps to tell a genial, feel-good story about retirees finding a new lease on life. However, Fox Searchlight is certainly not blind – that 2012 flick grossed $130 million worldwide on a budget of around $10 million – so now audiences are getting a follow-up, officially titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Today, the first trailer for the sequel, which opens next year, has arrived, promising exactly the same sort of cinematic diversion – which should be perfectly acceptable to the same crowd which made The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel a hit. John Madden is back in the director’s chair, and many of the same stars are reprising their roles, including Judi DenchMaggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Dev Patel. »

The trailer only hints at the story coming in the sequel which follows Sonny (Dev Patel) attempting to lock down a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful has turned out to be a success.
