‘Think Like a Man Too's’ Jerry Ferrara on Why Playing Gabrielle Union's Husband Stressed Him Out (Video)

16 September 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Landing the role of Jeremy in the “Think Like a Man” movies came with some perks and pitfalls for Jerry Ferrara. The actor, who's best known for his role as Turtle in the HBO series “Entourage,” told TheWrap that playing Gabrielle Union‘s underachieving husband Jeremy in “Think Like a Man Too” was no easy task. “It was very stressful having to make people believe I could get Gabrielle Union, 'cause Gabrielle is very, very beautiful and talented,” Ferrara said of the film, which was released on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday. ”So, I also thought it would be a nice little feather in. »

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are bringing the heat to their honeymoon. The Being Mary Jane actress and the basketball player tied the knot in Miami on Aug. 30, and jetted away the next day. And though Union, 41, looked stunning in both of her wedding gowns, she's proving less can be more in Instagrams from the couple's romantic vacation. "#irefusedtowearclothes," she captioned a collage of her wearing a white hot bikini in the crystal-clear waters of the "deserted island" in the Maldives where she and Wade, 32, kicked off their trip. The couple then embarked on the honeymoon's second leg: a safari in Africa's Serengeti. »

Tiff Review: 'Top Five' Starring Chris Rock & Rosario Dawson

9 September 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"It's never just a movie," says Chris Rock's Andre Allen in "Top Five," and that sentiment definitely applies to the comedy veteran's latest directorial effort. While on the surface it's an incisive and playful look at celebrity, media and fame, it's also about the difficulty, fear and risk of stepping outside your comfort zone, whether in your career or personal life. While there are many meta layers to "Top Five"—also written by Rock, clearly drawing from his many years in the industry—it avoids the trap of simply being a celebrity vehicle about celebrity, by displaying a surprising heart beneath its very funny surface. The film follows Andre—a familiar but very fictionalized version of Rock himself—and finds the popular A-lister at a crossroads. His wedding to reality star Erica Long (Gabrielle Union) is just a few days away and will be a big TV event on Bravo. »

Top Five Review | Tiff 2014

9 September 2014 5:23 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On stage, Chris Rock is consistently one of the funniest men on the planet.  In the movies…well, it’s been a rocky road.  With a few exceptions (typically in supporting roles), filmmakers have just never been able to figure out how to take advantage of his comedic voice when playing a fictional character.  Even the two times in the past that Rock has directed his movies, something felt off.  At least that was true until now.  Rock writes, directs, and stars in Top Five as a loosely fictionalized version of himself.  Just like a Woody Allen movie, it comes off as personal without being autobiographical. More importantly, it’s incredibly funny, just like Rock has always been with a mic in his hand. About time.  Hit that jump. Rock stars as a former stand up comic turned film star who abandoned his live comedy roots to pay a big »

The Top 5 Things You Need to Know About Chris Rock’s Toronto Breakout Hit, Top Five

8 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Toronto is the most populist of film festivals, and it seemed obvious after Saturday night's raucous premiere that the people here were going to be speaking up a lot in favor of Chris Rock's new comedy, Top Five. The movie, which Rock wrote, directed, and starred in, is about a comedian, Andre Allen, at a crossroads: He's a recovering alcoholic, now sober and trying to be taken seriously with a movie about the Haitian slave rebellion while also prepping for his televised wedding to a reality-tv star (Gabrielle Union). Top Five came into Toronto without a distributor — but with Scott Rudin, Barry Diller, Jay Z, and Kanye West as producers. Now it's sparked a bidding war, and Deadline reports that Paramount is set to buy it for $12.5 million, which would make it one of the largest acquisitions ever at Tiff. In Toronto, momentum only seems to be growing — »

Top Five

Paramount Pictures has reportedly emerged as frontrunner to acquire the Chris Rock-directed "Top Five". The film, which just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, sparked a furious bidding war with the worldwide rights tipped to go for a whopping $12.5 million. That's a big jump up from the biggest deal of last year at the fest, the Keira Knightley film "Begin Again," which went for $7 million.

Rock, Rosario Dawson, Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Tracy Morgan, Cedric The Entertainer, Kevin Hart, Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Whoopi Goldberg and Jay Pharoah star in the film about a former stand up comedian turned film star about to be hit by a major change in his life. [Source: Deadline]

Toronto: Paramount In Pole Position For Chris Rock’s ‘Top Five’ As Bidding Hits $12.5 Million For Ww Rights

7 September 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

3Rd Exclusive Update: The latest development in one of the most spirited festival auctions I have observed in years: I’m hearing that Paramount Pictures has emerged as frontrunner to acquire Top Five, the Chris Rock-directed film that sparked a wild bidding frenzy. The last number I had heard was $12.5 million in a deal that would bring world rights. I’m also told this isn’t done, but it might well conclude one of the largest deals for a film at this festival. The studio saw the film today, and Brad Grey has a longstanding relationship with Rock that goes back 30 years. There is also a long relationship with Scott Rudin, who with Barry Diller backed the film. Nobody was commenting at this late hour, and this might not take a final shape until tomorrow morning.

It has been a whirlwind 24 hours since the film made its premiere in »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Top Five’

7 September 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Sometimes a movie is just a movie,” remarks one character early on in Chris Rock’s “Top Five”; but in the case of Rock’s own third turn in the director’s chair, it’s also . After a couple of ambitious but middling first attempts (“Head of State,” “I Think I Love My Wife”), Rock has finally found a big-screen vehicle for himself that comes close to capturing the electric wit, shrewd social observations and deeply autobiographical vein of his standup comedy. At once personal in its sensibilities, yet made with an eye towards reaching a broad, mainstream audience, “Top Five” sparked a well-deserved bidding war following its Toronto premiere, and should soon become a welcome addition to some lucky distrib’s slate.

Whereas Rock turned to French New Wave master Eric Rohmer as the source for “I Love My Wife,” “Top Five” bears the conspicuous influence of classic-era Woody Allen »

Jerry Seinfeld Makes It Rain on Strippers

7 September 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Chris Rock spoke to Vulture earlier this week about his new comedy, Top Five, he predicted that Jerry Seinfeld's cameo would be "the big shock of the movie. I mean, it’s Jerry Seinfeld in an R-rated movie, so it’s kind of like a special effect in itself." So of course I had my eye out for Seinfeld onscreen as the movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival late last night. He shows up near the end, along with Adam Sandler, at a strip club bachelor party for Chris Rock's famous-comedian character, Andre, who has just released a movie about the Haitian slave rebellion in a bid to get taken seriously, and whose career is so close to Dancing with the Stars desperation that the best thing going for him is his upcoming, to-be-televised marriage to a reality TV star (Gabrielle Union).

Review: Chris Rock's 'Top Five' is simply a comedy smash

6 September 2014 11:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto — If you were to look over Chris Rock's lengthy and impressive career you might think he peaked with HBO's "The Chris Rock Show." Or perhaps it was his string of Emmy-winning standup specials including 2008's "Kill the Messenger." Or perhaps it was as the producer and co-creator of the critically acclaimed TV series "Everybody Hates Chris." Well, happily, at the ripe young age of 49, Rock has hit a career high with his new film "Top Five," which debuted at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival Saturday night. The third movie written by, directed by and starring Rock after "Head of State" and "I Think I Love My Wive," "Top Five" finds the comedian playing Andre Allen, a former stand up comedian turned movie star who is at a major turning point in his life. Best known for his character "Hammy" – essentially Rock in a bear costume with guns blazing yelling "It's Hammy time! »

Tiff Interview: Chris Rock Talks 'Top Five,' A Comedian's True Self & Fame As The New Cocaine

6 September 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s no question that Chris Rock is really f*cking funny. If you’ve witnessed his standup in person, you know it can be paralytically funny (I experienced it once and almost developed a hernia). But the comedian is also an accomplished writer/director who has made three feature-length films now, on top of conceiving his own TV show and the social documentary “Good Hair.” His latest film is “Top Five,” a celebrity-skewering comedy that makes its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend. Written and directed by Rock, the art-imitating-life comedy sees the actor playing a comedian turned serious film star. Rosario Dawson co-stars as the New York Times journalist shadowing him for a profile. During what becomes a long sparring match between the two of them, the writer forces the comedian to confront the career that has made him famous and the life he left behind. »

Chris Rock on His New Movie, Catching That Foul Ball, and the Dominance of Joan Rivers

5 September 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tomorrow night sees the Toronto Film Festival premiere of Chris Rock's Top Five, which he wrote, directed, and stars in, and which also features many of his comedian friends, including Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart, Jerry Seinfeld, and Cedric the Entertainer. The movie is about a comedian who’s trying to branch out in more serious roles and simultaneously finds himself in a love triangle with a tough yet beautiful New York Times reporter (Rosario Dawson) and his reality-tv star fiancée (Gabrielle Union). In St. Vincent, Bill Murray plays a questionable caretaker to Melissa McCarthy’s son. Vulture spoke to Rock just before his plane to Toronto departed about directing his first movie since 2007, the Jim Carrey curse, and his best story about Joan Rivers. (It’s a good one.)You’re on your way to Toronto this afternoon. Do you realize you’re missing Bill Murray Day here?He »

Toronto Hot Film Acquisition Titles: Will Seller’s Market Continue Into Fall?

5 September 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

If the acquisitions frenzy and precedent-setting deals struck in Berlin and Cannes is going to continue, it will surprise many of the sellers who’ve come to the Toronto Film Festival to fill slots in their 2015 slates. Maybe it’s because there were so many spectacular deals this year, of perhaps it’s because Toronto 2014 is so stocked with studio films that star the likes of Robert Downey Jr, Bill Murray and Denzel Washington. Whatever the reason, acquisition titles seem to be lower key than last year, when Can A Song Save Your Life and Bad Words prompted overnight auctions and $7 million deals, and just about every movie that played here found distribution.

The deal action got underway yesterday and today with Relativity’s acquisition of The Woman In Black 2 and Saban Entertainment’s deal for fest title Tracers. All the ingredients for a continued buying surge seem to be there, »
