Chris Evans and Jenny Slate Are Reportedly Dating, and the Internet Is Giddy

11 May 2016 8:56 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

And the official winner of "Captain America: Civil War" is ... Jenny Slate! The comedian/actress/author, known from "Saturday Night Live," "Obvious Child," "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On," and as the wooooorst sister on "Parks and Recreation," recently split from husband Dean Fleischer-Camp and has moved on with Captain America himself, Chris Evans.

That's the news from "a source" to Us Weekly, anyway, and fans have responded with pleasant surprise (when they're not crying).

The actors, both 34, reportedly connected while filming the upcoming movie "Gifted." They

They went on a double date with his brother Scott Evans in Hollywood back in March. And they were also on Anna Faris's "Unqualified" podcast together last month.

Is it a serious romance? Is it PR? Time may tell, since the line keeps getting blurred (damn you Jon Lovitz and Jessica Lowndes!) and the timing is suspect. He is promoting a movie, »

Box Office: ‘Jungle Book’ Dominating with $38 Million Weekend

30 April 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Showing serious staying power, Disney’s “The Jungle Book” is dominating domestic moviegoing this weekend with an estimated $38 million — the eighth-best third weekend of all time.

That’s more than four times the closest competitor, New Line’s moderate opening for the Key and Peele action-comedy “Keanu” with $9.2 million at 2,658 sites.

Open Road’s launch of romantic comedy “Mother’s Day” generated a modest $8 million for a fourth-place finish behind the second weekend of Universal’s “The Huntsman: Winter’s War.” Gramercy’s “Ratchet & Clank” saw limited traction in its fifth-place opening with $5.6 million.

Should Saturday’s estimates hold, all three openers will finish the weekend at the lower end of recent forecasts while  “The Jungle Book” remains an impressive draw at multiplexes with a decline of only 38% from its last frame. Stellar reviews and strong word of mouth will have propelled the tale of an orphaned boy and talking »

‘Jungle Book’ to Haul More at Weekend Box Office Than Newcomers Combined

29 April 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Jungle Book” remains a box office force with early Friday estimates showing a $36 million third weekend — more than the combined take of new titles “Keanu,” “Mother’s Day” and “Ratchet & Clank.”

Open Road’s romantic comedy “Mother’s Day” should gross almost $4 million Friday and finish the weekend around $11 million, with New Line’s Key and Peele action-comedy “Keanu” following closely with a $3.5 million Friday and a $10 million weekend. Gramercy’s “Ratchet & Clank” will earn about $1.8 million on Friday for a $7 million weekend.

Meanwhile, Disney’s “The Jungle Book” will decline by only 40% and finish the weekend with a 17-day domestic total in the $245 million range. If it hits $36 million this weekend, it would be the 10th-highest third weekend haul of all time, replacing “Iron Man 3” at $35.8 million.

The weekend is something of a prelude to what’s widely expected to be a massive domestic opening on May »

Action-comedy “Keanu,” starring Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key and a kitten, has purred to the tune of $560,000 at Thursday night screenings in North America, while “Mother’s Day” barely made a whimper with $225,000.

Keanu,” which opened the South by Southwest festival last March, is expected to finish the weekend with $10 million to $12 million at 2,658 sites. Disney’s “The Jungle Book” should rule the box office for a third consecutive weekend in the $40 million range, pushing it to an impressive $250 million total in its first 17 days.

Open Road’s romantic comedy “Mother’s Day,” starring Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Jason Sudeikis, could challenge “Keanu” for second place. Directed by Garry Marshall, the film includes a large ensemble with Timothy Olyphant, Margo Martindale, Shay Mitchell, Britt Robertson, Héctor Elizondo, Jack Whitehall and Jon Lovitz.

Reviews for “Mother’s Day,” which opens at 3,035 sites, have been negative with a 7% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. »

Mother’S Day – Review

28 April 2016 4:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

Sappiness overflows in Mother’S Day, an assembly-line rom-com with little on its mind beyond clichés and predictable formula. 81-year old director Garry Marshall, still mining the calendar after the similar New Year’S Eve and Valentine’S Day, has gathered a bouquet of celebrity movie stars including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, and Kate Hudson, and shuffled them into tiresome skits about motherhood gone right and wrong. Mother’S Day is a shallow and sickly-sweet offering best avoided.

Jennifer Aniston has the largest role in Mother’S Day as Sandy, a divorced mother of two sons whose ex-husband Henry (Timothy OIyphant) has married the much younger Tina (Shay Mitchell), who tries too hard to be a cool stepmom. The story jumps between Sandy’s dilemma and those of a dozen others, such as childless Miranda (Julia Roberts), an uptight QVC superstar who has motherhood forced on her by »

'Force Awakens,' 'Deadpool' Win Big at 2016 MTV Movie Awards

10 April 2016 7:55 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Deadpool, Pitch Perfect 2 and Jurassic World were among the winners at this year's always eclectic MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Kevin Hart and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

The pair opened the show with an outrageous Mad Max: Fury Road homage, entering the Warner Bros. backlot on an outsized battle rig and surrounded by a horde of War Boys. Topping it all off, Hart was strapped to the front — à la Max Rockatansky, but with far more screaming — while Johnson stood atop the rig rocking a flame-thrower guitar. »

Best Baseball Movies

3 April 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.

A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”

To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.

The Bad News Bears

Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”

Who are we to argue with greatness?

After skewering all-American subjects such as politics (The Candidate) and beauty pageants (Smile), director Michael Ritchie naturally set his sights on the »
