As we bid farewell to a year of unbelievable cinema, Hollywood truly gave the masses such diverse choices from which to plunk down their hard earned dollars for. Assuredly it was a record-breaking year at the global box office as well. According to the La Times, 2013 ticket sales reportedly are projected to reach $10.9 billion. We still love going to the movies… especially the popular ones.
However, there’s always a few that we can’t quite avoid as well as a number of films that just disappoint. Our list for this year’s “worst films” seems to be chock-full of extremely disappointing titles.
Dishonorable Mention: Gangster Squad
Even Ryan Gosling in some vintage suits and Emma Stone in a sexy red dress couldn’t help this by the books gangster flick. All style and no substance is the name of this tune that we’ve heard and seen perform much better before. »

For two years now I have chosen to end the year not with a list of favourite films or scattering of novelty awards (at least not entirely) but to instead try to adapt the year itself for the big screen. Here to round out the trilogy, then, is 2013.
If 2013 were a movie it would be based on a true story. As such, it would reflect the birth of a new prince, the death of an ex-Prime Minister and Andy Murray’s victory at Wimbledon. It would be unable to shy away from the Boston marathon massacre, the tropical cyclone that tore through the Philippines and the loss of Nelson Mandela.
If 2013 were a movie it would be black and white, not quite a sequel, not quite a remake, and adapted from a Young Adult novel. It would be an ensemble piece comprising very different stories, and would trace the journeys of Princess Diana, »

Top box office movies of 2013: If you make original, quality films… (photo: Sandra Bullock has two movies among the top 15 box office hits of 2013; Bullock is seen here in ‘The Heat,’ with Melissa McCarthy) (See previous post: “2013 Box Office Record? History is Remade If a Few ‘Minor Details’ Ignored.”) As further evidence that moviegoers want original, quality entertainment, below you’ll find a list of the top 15 movies at the domestic box office in 2013 — nine of which are sequels or reboots (ten if you include Oz the Great and Powerful), and more than half of which are 3D releases. Disney and Warner Bros. were the two top studios in 2013. Disney has five movies among the top 15; Warners has three. With the exception of the sleeper blockbuster Gravity, which, however dumbed down, targeted a more mature audience, every single one of the titles below were aimed either at teenagers/very, »

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds bundled up for a stroll through Aspen, Co, on Sunday. Both of them sported knitted beanies, with Blake giving a nod to Ryan's Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, roots in her Canadian flag-inspired hat. The pair's casual outing comes a few weeks after Blake's New York Magazine interview, where she confessed to repinning pictures of her handsome husband on Pinterest. The actress also stepped out in NYC earlier this month, going all-out glam in the Big Apple while Ryan continued filming his latest project, Selfless, in New Orleans. During Ryan's time shooting, Blake spent some time in the South, too, joining him in Louisiana and making a stylish appearance at the H&M New Orleans flagship store opening. The couple's been mostly out of the spotlight in recent months, although they did link up at a benefit for Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's disease foundation in NYC in early November. »

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were spotted walking in a winter wonderland on Sunday, Dec. 29. The Green Lantern costars stepped out arm-in-arm as they headed to a local comedy club in Aspen, Colo. The Savages star, 26, and the R.I.P.D. actor, 27, wore stylish yet practical outfits for their afternoon outing. Lively kept warm by layering a cozy cardigan over a denim jacket and a flannel top. She completed her ensemble with black leggings, suede boots and a knit cap. Reynolds, meanwhile, rocked a puffy vest over a gray sweater and accessorized with a scarf, a beanie, a watch and sunglasses. Earlier this month, Lively joked to E! News that her dream Christmas present—vintage Van Cleef & Arpels earrings »
The Batman vs. Superman rumors continue to persist this week as Denzel Washington has been thrown into the mix for Zack Snyder’s upcoming sequel. At first, sources said he was being looked at for the role of Lex Luthor, perhaps because Joaquin Phoenix had turned it down. Now, however, Nuke The Fridge is reporting that Warner Bros. wants Washington as John Stewart, the third Green Lantern and the one who succeeded Hal Jordan.
Of course, this is in no way confirmed and it’s very likely that this is nothing more than a rumor. After all, we’ve heard that Warner Bros. is purposefully passing out false information in hopes of identifying where the leak is coming from. This bit about Washington could very well be a part of that. As of this time, there’s just no way of knowing for sure, unfortunately.
On the flip side, if the rumors are true, »

When it comes to financial disasters, Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” will likely go down as the biggest flop of the year after losing nearly $200 million at the box office. But Johnny Depp isn’t alone. In addition to big-budget failures like “The Lone Ranger,” several low-to-mid-level films also disappointed in ticket sales, including projects from Channing Tatum, Harrison Ford and Selena Gomez.
Below is a list of this year’s biggest box office underachievers (in no particular order):
Lionsgate had hoped the popular sci-fi novels would spur another teenage franchise like “The Hunger Games,” but the Asa Butterfield-starrer failed to catch fire at the box office, earning less than $90 million worldwide.
Estimated Budget: $115 million
Box Office: $87.9 million
DreamWorks’ Wikileaks movie “The Fifth Estate” pulled in an anemic $1.7 million from 1,769 theaters on its opening weekend, making it the worst debut for a »

Opening Christmas Day is director Peter Segal's (Get Smart) boxing comedy Grudge Match. Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone play two Pittsburgh fighters whose rivalry ended abruptly in 1983. Thirty years later, a boxing promoter (Kevin Hart) convinces them to get back in the ring for one last fight that turns into a “must-see HBO event.” Alan Arkin, Kim Basinger, and Jon Bernthal also star. Watch the trailer here. A few days ago, I landed an extended video interview with Segal here in Los Angeles. He talked about why it's taken him so long to direct another movie, how Grudge Match came together, the process of casting Stallone and De Niro, what it was like to direct them, how the test screenings affected characters and storylines, deleted scenes, what will be on the Blu-ray, and more. In addition, Segal also talked about what happened with the Get Smart sequel, Shazam, »

Christopher Nolan proved that brainiac sci-fi could make clever at the box office with Inception. Now his long-term cinematographer, Wally Pfister, puts his mind to directing with a similarly cerebral thriller. Johnny Depp plays Dr Will Caster, an »

Every Monday until the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, EW is celebrating a great success story from independent film’s most prestigious showcase. So far, we’ve revisited Lee Daniel’s Precious and Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River. Today, we look back at Adventureland, the 2009 comedy that featured a bunch of indie stars who were on the cusp of movie stardom.
To be fair, Kristen Stewart had just become a huge star when Adventureland pulled into Park City in 2009 — the first Twilight was playing in theaters — but she was still only 18 years old. Jesse Eisenberg was known best for indies like The Squid and the Whale »

After sending Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson to crash some weddings and forcing Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds to switch bodies (and don't forget about Fred Claus since it's Christmas time), director David Dobkin is getting into serious territory with The Judge starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall. And it seems like he's going to stay in that arena for a little while longer because Variety has word that Dobkin is going to direct the gestating biopic on Playboy founder Hugh Hefner that is currently set up at Warner Bros. with Ocean's Eleven franchise producer Jerry Weintraub still on board the untitled project. Read on! This should be quite the sterling biopic because Rush and Frost/Nixon screenwriter Peter Morgan will script the film. We're not sure just how much of Hefner's life will be covered (the later years get boring and stupid with reality show prospects and Viagara »

He also was a producer on the Vince Vaughn-Owen Wilson comedy Wedding Crashers and Van Wilder, the cult comedy that starred Ryan Reynolds. He came onto Relativity’s radar when the company picked up Earth to Echo, a low-budget coming-of-age picture that was initially made by Disney, but was then produced by

Her husband, Safe House star Ryan Reynolds, made the same move not long ago. Lively continues to be managed by Management 360′s Justin Grey Stone and attorney Jeff Bernstein. »

For a movie who’s most famous tag line is “there can be only one,” there are sure a ton of Highlander sequels, TV spinoffs (live action and animated), novels, comic books, and reboots. But that should come as no surprise; this is Hollywood, and the immortal Scottish swordsman epic is one of the most indelible franchises of the past 30 years.
The original Highlander arrived in 1986, and is easily the most hallowed of all Highlander properties, featuring the holy triumvirate of genre stars: Christopher Lambert (NCIS: La, Greystoke: The Legend Of Tarzan, Lord Of The Apes, Mortal Kombat), Sean Connery (The James Bond, Dr. Jones, The Rock, The Untouchables, The Hunt For Red October), and Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, Starship Troopers, ER, Flubber, Pet Sematary II, John Dies At The End, and ubiquitous voice actor). The hit spawned Highlander 2: The Quickening (1991), a TV show starring Adrian Paul that »

Blake Lively spilled all in a recent interview with New York Magazine while promoting Gucci's Premiere fragrance, for which she is the face. During the sit-down, Blake touched on everything from pixie cuts and her personal scent to her rumored new lifestyle site and marriage to Ryan Reynolds, even confessing that she has a secret Pinterest account where she stores "pictures of Ryan." Here are some of the most surprising - and random - quotes from Blake Lively's New York Magazine interview: What's the deal with Blake Lively's lifestyle website? "I don’t know if it’s a lifestyle site. I was very vague about it. And because of that, everyone was filling in the blanks about what other sites it could be like. It’s not accurate. I’m creating a brand that I felt the need for. I was on my show [Gossip Girl] for so long that »

Blake Lively -- she's just like Us! The actress admitted in a recent interview with NY Mag's The Cut that she re-pins pictures of her hot husband Ryan Reynolds on Pinterest. The Gossip Girl alum, 26, revealed that she has a Pinterest account, although it's not under her name. "It’s not like, top secret. It’s just a way that I can store the boards," the stylish star explained. "Sometimes, it's weird," she added. "If I’m looking [at] hair things, I see, oh, that’s me! That’s so weird!" And [...] »
