9 Potential Reasons Why No One Went to See 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Last Weekend

24 February 2015 4:14 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

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:

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 »

‘WWE Fastlane 2015′ Results & Review

24 February 2015 4:09 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

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 »

The Undertaker Reportedly In Terrible Shape Ahead Of WrestleMania 31

12 February 2015 1:53 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


The Undertaker is looking old and moving about with difficulty, according to a source that Dave Meltzer referenced in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

“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 »

Stars' Real Names Revealed! You Won't Believe What Their Parents Called Them

30 January 2015 5:35 AM, PST | | See recent news »

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 »

Michel Gomez: ‘In a Very Tense Environment, Paris Hosted Major Domestic and Foreign Shoots in 2014′

28 January 2015 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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 »
