Denis Leary gets the band back together for FX’s Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll

30 June 2015 11:44 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Remember when a rock band’s fame was measured in record sales and radio plays instead of Twitter followers and trending hashtags? Someone might as well stick us in a museum with a pole up our butts because we, like Johnny Rock, are fossils. Comedian and former Rescue Me star Denis Leary returns to FX in the new comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll as Johnny Rock, the drugged-out, aging frontman of early ’90s flash-in-the-pan punk band The Heathens. For nearly 25 years, he’s been living all of the rock star lifestyle with none of the fame or fortune. John Corbett costars as Flash, The … Continue reading →

Nia Vardalos and (Shirtless) John Corbett Wrap 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2'

29 June 2015 2:14 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Grab some Windex and maybe give yourself the first spritz after checking out the full photo of John Corbett in all his shirtless glory. Opa! That Toula is a lucky woman. (And that Ian is a lucky man.) Nia Vardalos became a major star back in 2002 thanks to "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," and she and Corbett are returning for "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2," which is scheduled for a March 25, 2016 release.

Sequel filming started in late May in Toronto and just wrapped, which we know because Vardalos kindly shared some photos from set. A few days ago, she shared this shot with Corbett, joking, "Is someone trying to get baptized again in #MyBigFatGreekWedding2?":

'World War Z' Sequel Set for 2017 Release Opposite 'Fantastic Four 2'

22 May 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The likelihood of Fantastic Four 2 of keeping its release date seems slim at this point. Then again, the likelihood of World War Z 2 (or whatever Paramount ends up calling it) sticking with its newly found release date seems also slim. The Fantastic Four sequel has already moved all around the calendar, dodging Star Wars: Episode VIII from July 14, 2017 to June 2, to June 9, 2017, where it now resides and has just gained company in the World War Z sequel, which will again star Brad Pitt and be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) with a screenplay by Steven Knight (Locke). Of course, the first World War Z also had release date issues, moving all over the board, though that largely stemmed from production issues. Considering we're talking about a release date over two years away I guess it hardly matters one way or another. However, in other release date news, »

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Set For March 25, 2016

22 May 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal just announced that it will bring long-awaited comedy sequel My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 to theaters on March 25, 2016. Currently, the pic has the weekend all to itself, outside of some little indie title called Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. That shouldn’t be a problem for the follow-up to 2002’s smash hit though, which will find Nia Vardalos returning as both star and screenwriter.

Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) is directing My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which will bring the rowdy Portokalos family back together for what’s being described as a “bigger, fatter” wedding where “a family secret will be revealed.” The original 2002 film was a surprising success for Universal, grossing $369 million worldwide against a chump-change $5 million budget. In addition to Vardalos, the sequel will find John Corbett reprising the role of Vardalos’ protagonist’s love-interest-turned-husband.

Save the Date: 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2' Coming in 2016

22 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Consider this your official save-the-date card: "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2" is slated for release on March 25, 2016.

If that date sounds familiar to you, that's because another high-profile sequel is also bowing that weekend: "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." We're assuming that studio Universal is going for a counter-programming strategy by choosing that weekend.

Then again, this flick is all about surprise, since the announcement of its existence in the first place also raised eyebrows. The film is a follow-up to 2002 hit comedy "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," which made star Nia Vardalos a household name (for a little while, anyway) and earned an Oscar nomination in the process, thanks to a big push from producers Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

Hanks and Wilson are back to produce this time around, as are stars Vardalos and John Corbett. The plot is set to revolve around the revelation of »

My Big Fat Greek Wedding sequel to open up against Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016

21 May 2015 10:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Grab the windex, because 2016 will feature Batman vs. Superman vs… The Portokalos family?

That’s what we’re hearing from THR, who report that the sequel to the hit 2002 comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding has landed a March 25th, 2016 release date, which means it’ll be going up against Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the box office.

That may seem foolish upon first glance, but the first film (which cost a measly $5 million) brought in over $368 million, despite never reaching number one spot at the box office. It’ll also serve as great counter programming to Warner Brothers’ highly anticipated blockbuster, meaning it could make a lot of money from those not waiting to see the DC titans engage in fisticuffs on screen.

Although The Boy Next Door borrows the formula of past thrillers and all twists are easy to see coming, the film manages enough suspense to make it entertaining. The ensemble cast is solid and the pace is fast enough to keep the audience from realizing they have seen this movie a thousand times before.Directed by Rob Cohen and written by Barbara Curry, the film stars Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Ian Nelson, John Corbett, Kristin Chenoweth, Lexi Atkins, and Hill Harper.The film opens by letting the audience know high school English teacher Claire Peterson (Lopez) has a failed marriage thanks to […] »
