Looks like Fifty Shades of Grey might be a one-pump chump.
Though the movie made a record $80-something million during its first weekend, The Hollywood Reporter reports that its box office saw a “massive” 73 percent decline in the U.S. the second weekend. (Though it’s still made over $400 globally, so really, who cares?)
To be honest, we’re surprised: We assumed fans of the book and the plus ones they dragged with them would see it the first weekend, then word would spread that it wasn’t as bad as expected and everyone else would see it the next weekend. Here are nine possible reasons that proved untrue:
Watch: Dakota Johnson argues with her mom about ‘Fifty Shades’ at Oscars
1. Everyone Who Wanted to See It Already Saw It: As evidenced by that massive haul the first weekend. Fifty Shades is the fastest-selling R-rated movie in history, but maybe anyone who had any interest in ever »
The Road to WrestleMania continues, and we make a final PPV stop at the first WWE Fastlane PPV. When we leave this show tonight we should have a clearer view of what the big show in March will have in store for us, and hopefully we’ll have seen some interesting and entertaining matches and angles too. On paper it looks like it could be a decent show, but it all depends on the booking decisions and where the path leads after the show is over. So, let’s get on with this, shall we?
The opening match of the evening saw Ziggler, Rowan and Ryback take on Seth Rollins, Kane and Big Show in six man tag team action. The match, to me, felt like a typical Raw main event. It didn’t feel big, the fans were into it no more or less than they would be on »

News: Parks and Recreation Producer Dies of Apparent Overdose
"Today, I lost a friend," Poehler said. "I lost a dear young man in my life, who was struggling with addiction and who died. Just a few hours before we came, [Dr. Jane Aronson] and I sat and talked about it. I'm sharing it with you because life and death live so close together and we walk that fine line every day.

“For what it’s worth, someone saw Undertaker recently and said that he looked 60 and moved like his knees were gone and it was almost shocking,” Meltzer reported.
The feeling is that The Undertaker is still on course for a match with Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 31. Wyatt continues to reference the Deadman in promos and The Undertaker is expected to be back after Fast Lane.
The issues of age and trouble with movement are the reasons WWE booked Taker with Wyatt. The office have faith in Wyatt’s in-ring ability and the belief is that the 27 year old can carry the 49 year old to a good match.
Undertaker will dye his hair and be wearing make up to cover his aged appearance. Wyatt will do the »

In the conference room that launched 1 million entertainment careers, one huge decision was definitely addressed: the star's name. In Elton John's case, Reginald Kenneth Dwight was ditched for a much catchier Elton John, of course. Whoopi Goldberg trumped the actress's given name Caryn Elaine Johnson (no surprise there!). The stars we think we know everything about, like Miley Cyrus - who is no stranger to sharing the intimate cleavage selfie - are actually complete strangers to us, with sometimes very ordinary names. Cyrus was born Destiny Hope but legally changed her name to Miley (in honor of her nickname »

The Paris Film Office was set up in 2002 as part of the Mission Cinema project launched the same year. Both are integrated within the city council, the Mairie de Paris. Their goal is to provide a one-stop shop for French and foreign professionals that will handle all logistical aspects required for shooting in the French capital — which is not only one of the world’s most highly filmed cities but also one of the busiest, meaning that shooting there requires careful preparation. Two permits are required for filming in Paris: one issued by the Paris Film Office and one by the Préfecture de Police, the city’s police authority.
Since its launch, the Paris Film Office has inked agreements to improve filming conditions in the capital and set up a bilingual website to help French and international productions to prepare shoots. The site provides images of key locations and information »

Back in November it was announced that Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings star Sean Bean is set to star in an upcoming six-part retelling of Mary Shelley’s Gothic horror classic Frankenstein, and now ITV has revealed the full cast and synopsis for the drama series The Frankenstein Chronicles.
Set in Georgian London in 1827, The Frankenstein Chronicles has been created by Emmy nominated director and writer Benjamin Ross (The Young Poisoner’s Handbook, Torte Bluma) and writer Barry Langford (Torte Bluma). In the drama’s opening sequences, the Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel (Tom Ward), following a successful operation by Thames River Police to apprehend a gang of opium smugglers, recruits Marlott (Sean Bean). As he stands on the water’s edge, Marlott makes a shocking discovery. The body of a dead child is washed up on the shore and on further examination of the corpse, he »

A love letter to a bygone era of New York City, namely the late ‘80s, “Ten Thousand Saints” sees directing duo Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini returning to a more personal approach to filmmaking — or at least as personal as possible when adapting another’s material, in this case the debut novel by author Eleanor Henderson. Part teen romance, part awkward love triangle, part generational-clash portrait, and almost all powered by nostalgia, this warmly conceived dramedy will likely resonate strongest with audiences who have a direct connection to the story’s place and time. Otherwise, there’s not much to suggest a theatrical windfall, and only slightly better odds in ancillary.
The story actually kicks off in 1980 Vermont, on a particularly eventful night for young hero Jude (Henry Kelemen). He’s hit with a double whammy: His no-nonsense mom, Harriet (Julianne Nicholson), has kicked his hippie dad, Les (Ethan Hawke »
