30 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Thn are excited to announce that Arrow Films will be releasing horror-comedy The Voices on DVD, Blu-Ray and Steelbook (which is exclusive to Zavvi.com) on Monday July 13th, which stars Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick.

The Voices is directed by Marjane Satrapi, the Iranian author and filmmaker best known for the Academy Award nominated animated film Persepolis (2007). Ryan Reynolds stars as a troubled, med-addicted factory worker driven to murder by his talking pets, a psychopathic cat called Mr. Whiskers and Bosco, his peace-loving dog. Reynolds also voices both of the animals, while Jacki Weaver, Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick play the women unfortunate enough to cross his path.

When one night he accidentally kills Fiona, Jerry hastily covers his tracks, under the strict advice of the subversive Mr. Whiskers..and so the entertaining madness begins.

We’re big fans of the film and the steelbook looks pretty »

Has Chris Pine joined the cast of ‘Wonder Woman?’

27 May 2015 11:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It seems that Warner Bros. are moving positively forward with their next DC comic-book movie adaptation. Following the positive buzz we’re hearing about the in-production Suicide Squad, and the anticipation for next year’s massive Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, casting is progressing on the stand alone Wonder Woman movie which will be led by Gal Gadot, who will make a brief appearance in Batman V Supes.

It seems that Captain Kirk himself, Chris Pine, is in talks to star opposite Gadot in the movie as the male lead, and love interest to Wonder Woman/ Diana Prince, Steve Trevor. In the comic books Steve Trevor is a WWII fighter pilot who crash lands on Prince’s island where she nurses him back to health. Once he has recovered, she follows him to civilisation where she becomes Wonder Woman, with Trevor having no idea as to the existence of her alter ego. »

Zac Efron Shows Off Big Biceps During Hike in Hawaii

27 May 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

So this is how Zac Efron stays in such great shape!  The "Neighbors" actor was spotted hiking over Memorial Day weekend while on vacation in Oahu, Hawaii.  Efron looked casual for his outdoor exercise, wearing a white muscle shirt, striped shorts, black sneakers, a backwards baseball cap and aviators. Can you believe how buff the "High School Musical" alum looks?!  The 27-year-old actor wasn't hiking solo, though -- Zac was joined by "Pitch Perfect" star Anna Kendrick, who went makeup-free for their beach side hike.  Efron also shared a candid snap via Instagram on Monday, while standing on a mountain peak overlooking the gorgeous blue ocean.  "Trailing up the military pillbox hike in Hawaii and remembering our troops. Thank you for your service #Memorialday," he posted with the pretty picture.  Zac recently wrapped production for his latest comedy, "Dirty Grandpa," which he was off filming with Robert De Niro in Georgia back in April. »

Anna Kendrick Has the Best View of Zac Efron's Ripped Bod While Hiking in Hawaii (and We're Insanely Jealous)

27 May 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

As if we needed another reason to envy Anna Kendrick.  Not only is the 29-year-old beauty one of the funniest celebs on social media, but she's also pals with Zac Efron, so, naturally, the pair went on a hike together on Monday in Hawaii, where the Pitch Perfect star was treated to front row seats to Mr. Efron's gun show.  Way to work those biceps, Zac.  The Neighbors hottie and the Into the Woods actress both kept it casual for their excursion and were joined by a few additional pals, including Adam DeVine. Efron rocked a basic white tank and shorts—in his typical swoonworthy fashion—while Kendrick sported bright blue »

Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road continue UK box office domination

27 May 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

George Clooney’s Tomorrowland fails to budge Anna Kendrick and Tom Hardy from the top while François Ozon’s latest opens well

The photo finish

Pitch Perfect 2 held on to the top spot over Friday, Saturday and Sunday, beating Mad Max: Fury Road by a narrow margin (£2.67m against £2.64m). But take Bank Holiday Monday into consideration, and over the four days Fury Road pipped Pitch Perfect 2, with £3.49m against £3.48m. The cumulative totals put Pitch Perfect 2 modestly in front (£10.59m against £10.54m), though it’s worth noting that Fury Road was released one day earlier.

Tomorrowland's flop recalls past Disney disaster movies

27 May 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In this week’s round-up of the global box office scene:

• Slow start for $180m fantasia casts doubt over George Clooney’s star leverage

• Aamir Khan’s Pk sets new Bollywood high in China

Pitch Perfect 2 star Anna Kendrick in harmony with film-musicals revival

Still no serious competition for Marvel’s superhero partypack Avengers: Age of Ultron, with Tomorrowland flopping (see below) and Mad Max: Fury Road – perhaps because of its adult rating – not comporting itself exactly like a global blockbuster. Ultron hasn’t had the seismic Us box-office impact of the first film, but has been holding well for a CGI action spectacle nonetheless: it dropped a commendable 46.1% on this particular frame, benefiting from the Memorial Day crowd who weren’t fired up by Tomorrowland. A take of $1.27bn (£849m) sees it in sixth place on the all-time list, just below Frozen, and it’s not running on empty just yet: Japan, »

Pitch Perfect 2 Scores Big At The Irish Box Office

26 May 2015 3:52 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Barden Bellas returned to the big screen in a big way with Pitch Perfect 2, hitting the right note at the global box office by passing the $100 million mark at the weekend on its second week of release. It’s also riding high in the Emerald Isle, retaining its number one spot in Irish box office for a second week straight, bringing in an impressive  €326,165 last weekend, which gives it a grand total of €1,113,544 so far. This is a pretty amazing feat since, in only ten days, it has surpassed the original movie’s Irish box office gross of €1, 089 million. With the Summer blockbuster season only getting started, Pitch Perfect 2 is definitely proving itself a fun alternative for this who want something a change from the usual action fare this season trades in, and there is still plenty of time to catch Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and the »

Us Box-Office: Tomorrowland opens to average $32.2 million

24 May 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Brad Bird’s Disney adventure Tomorrowland has opened at the number one spot at the Us box-office with a rather lacklustre $32.2 debut. The film, which sees Hollywood megastar George Clooney leading the cast, was expected to take a slightly better $40 million over the three days, but fell short going up against summer blockbusters like George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, the musical/ comedy heavyweight Pitch Perfect 2, and the lurking Marvel megabeast Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Tomorrowland, titled Tomorrowland: A World Beyond in the UK, cost a whopping $190 million to make, and it will need a lot of traction to get it anywhere near profit, and sources say that overseas performance is also coming in very weak at a reported $26.7 million over the past three days.

This weekend, Pitch Perfect 2, which stars Anna Kendrick, Elizabeth Banks (who also directs) and Rebel Wilson, tipped over the $100 million mark adding another $30 million to its tally. »

‘Tomorrowland’ Surges Past ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ at Memorial Day Box Office

24 May 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Disney’s braintrust set its original sci-fi movie epic “Tomorrowland” for the Memorial Day weekend, it’s doubtful they gave much thought to the Barden Bellas of “Pitch Perfect 2.” But director Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof, the team that conceived “Tomorrowland,” have probably gotten their fill of the saucy a capella singing team led by Fat Amy and Beca — that’s Rebel Wilson and Anna Kendrick, for the aca-uninitiated — at the center of Universal s musical comedy. On Sunday, “Tomorrowland,” the $150 million sci-fi saga inspired by the utopian dreams of Disneyland founder Walt Disney and one of its park. »

Box Office: ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Crossing $100 Million Mark

23 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pitch Perfect 2″ will cross the $100 million mark at the U.S. box office on Saturday.

This is yet another high note for the Universal comedy as it looks likely to edge out big-budget tentpole “Tomorrowland” at the Memorial Day weekend box office, with just north of $41 million. The “Pitch Perfect” sequel has an estimated $29 million pricetag, while Diseny’s “Tomorrowland” reportedly cost $180 million to produce.

Pitch Perfect 2″ will surpass $125 million by the end of the four-day weekend.

The a cappella sequel launched in theaters last weekend to a surprise $69.2 million — more than the original movie grossed in total at the domestic box office ($65 million). This is the top musical opening and the second-biggest PG-13 comedy debut of all time.

For Elizabeth Banks, this marks the best debut for a first-time feature film director and is the second-highest grossing opening for a movie by a female director, behind Sam Taylor-Johnson, »

Director Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof‘s “Tomorrowland” launched with $9.7 million at the box office Friday, but couldn’t pull away from last week’s No. 1 movie “Pitch Perfect 2,” setting the stage for a tight race over the Memorial Day weekend. Both Disney’s sci-fi adventure starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson and Hugh Laurie and Universal’s musical comedy sequel are heading for around $40 million over the four days. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and the rest of the Barden Bellas took in $9.6 million, and will cross the $100 million mark domestically on Saturday. “Tomorrowland” is rated PG and “Pitch Perfect 2 »

This was my first encounter with Sondheim and I came to »
