With the holiday season soft, it’s clear the 2014 domestic box office is going to wind up down from last year by nearly 5 percent. So why aren’t we hearing more groans and gnashing of teeth from Hollywood executives?
It’s because despite the downturn, the majority of the studios made money on their movies. Fox, Disney, Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros. and Sony should all — to varying degrees — wind up in the black on their film slates.
The fact that 2015 has a shot to be the biggest on record is brightening Hollywood’s mood, too. Among the heavyweight films set »

For every year that is packed with awards season fodder and memorable movies that will go down in history, there is an equal number of films we wish we could erase from our memories.
The Worst of 2014 includes both people who should know better and repeat offenders, artists with a vision and hucksters out for a quick buck.
Here’s hoping the responsible parties resolve to do better in 2015.

Seth MacFarlane’s “American Dad!”is one of my favorite animated sitcoms. Unlike Family Guy, the series has aged gracefully. Sure, it has a weak episode every now and then, but it has many more hits than misses. As I’m sure many of you know, American Dad! has been doing Christmas-themed episodes every couple of seasons and some of them have a […] »

It’s been nearly a month since the teaser for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped. Since then, we’ve seen numerous parodies of the trailer, from shot-for-shot recreations using Lego or footage from the original trilogy, to spoofs from Saturday Night Live and Seth MacFarlane, as well as a George Lucas “Special Edition” parody. Now someone finally had the cardboard-cutting-know-how/the balls to do a live-action sweded version of the trailer. Dumb Drum, the guys behind the Avengers: Age of Ultron swede we posted last month, stepped up to the plate and put together this fantastic shot-for-shot remake of The Force Awakens teaser. I’ve also included the side-by-side comparison video below.
Thanks to the Dumb Drum for sending this in to us!

They're the best-known protest organization against graphic TV sex and violence. Even if you don't know their name, you've seen the results of their efforts. Those headlines about that long Sons of Anarchy sex montage? The furor over ABC's Charlie Brown repeat leading into a Scandal sex scene? The content protests against Fox's Family Guy, Vh-1's Dating Naked and CBS' Stalker? All the work of the Parents Television Council, a 19-year-old oft-outraged Los Angeles-based organization that's probably the best known remaining anti-indecency group around. Some parents appreciate their efforts (about 1.4 million have joined the PTC in some fashion, with »

After numerous shenanigans with smoking reefer, partying with Flash Gordon and fleeing from one creepy father-son duo, Seth MacFarlane returns as the lovable but foulmouthed teddy bear in Ted 2. We've already seen a few photos here and there from the set, but now our first official look has arrived. The good people at Entertainment Weekly debuted our first real look at the highly anticipated sequel, featuring the CGI teddy and Mark Wahlberg as his human companion. Plot details are virtually unknown at this time, and MacFarlane is keeping his mouth shut. Aside from the scuba gear get-up, however, the director at least revealed what we won't be seeing: any other wise-cracking plush animals. "It's basically the way we treated Stewie in Family Guy,'' MacFarlane told EW. ''He's the only one of his kind who can talk." That's really not much of anything to go on, Seth. But we'll »
Family Guy is at a serious crossroads in its history. Having been surpassed by competitors, no longer able to entertain as it once did, and overtaken by The Simpsons, a show that for a while it bettered, Seth MacFarlane’s show needs to either change, or call it a day. It will always be known as one of the greatest (possibly second greatest, though South Park deserves to be in the conversation) of the modern animated sitcoms, but it has been stagnant for a while.
What could be done? Well, for starters, why not utilize some of the more underused characters on the show?
Quahog has quite a large population of supporting characters, but aside from the Griffins, Peter’s drinking buddies, and perhaps Adam West, few have ever been given a chance to shine. Tom Tucker had a turn as a father figure for Peter in the fifth season’s Mother Tucker, »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have the first photo from the upcoming "Ted" sequel, giving us a look at Mark Wahlberg and the title character, voiced by Seth MacFarlane. Check it out below. In the movie, John Bennet (Wahlberg) is separated from Lori (Mila Kunis) and finds a new love-interest (Amanda Seyfried). Wahlberg said that Ted won't like that John has a new woman in his life, but has bigger things to deal with. Morgan Freeman steps in as a famous civil rights lawyer who helps Ted take care of some legal issues. The rest of the cast includes Liam Neeson, John Slattery and Dennis Haysbert. "Ted 2" is set to hit theaters on June 26th, 2015. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
Mark Wahlberg and his best friend, a living teddy bear, are ready to hit the high seas in the first photo from the upcoming sequel Ted 2. The image was released as part of Entertainment Weekly's 2015 preview, though it only hints at some of the highjinks these two are bound to get themselves into. The duo return to the big screen this summer.
Seth MacFarlane returns to write and direct Ted 2. He also returns to voice the popular bear. While not much is known about the plot, it is known that Amanda Seyfried will be taking over the female lead from Mila Kunis. Though, Mila Kunis will still be present in some capacity as John Bennett's former lover.
Ted 2 may not have the name-brand recognition of an Avengers or the budget of a Star Wars, but it is the only sequel of 2015 that has a foul-mouthed teddy bear as one of its leads. The first image from the new comedy shows said teddy bear (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) with his best friend […]

The first image from Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming comedy sequel Ted 2 has arrived online, which shows Ted (MacFarlane) and John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) about to go scuba-diving – although quite why Ted has a shovel is anyone’s guess…
Ted 2 is set for release on April 3rd 2015, with a cast that also includes the returning Sam Jones (Flash Gordon) alongside A Million Ways to Die in the West stars Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman (Now You See Me), Patrick Warburton (Family Guy), Dennis Haysbert (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and David Hasselhoff (Baywatch).

The plush foul-mouthed bear who cleaned up at the 2012 box office returns to the big screen for more tomfoolery in Ted 2. Set for release next year, the sequel will attempt to replicate the success of the original by enlisting Mark Wahlberg once more to assist the pint-sized plushie. After it took a whopping $550 million worldwide, Ted went on to become one of the most successful R-rated movies of all time. The question is, however, will the second adventure for the thunder buddies do the same?
Writer, director and star Seth MacFarlane is doing all he can to ensure that Ted 2 is bigger and flashier than the first. Upping the jokes, scoring bigger locations and bagging a supreme cast suggest we’re in for an even-more bonkers ride next summer. One part of which appears to take place in the water. Thanks to this latest image courtesy of EW, »

Seth MacFarlane’s Ted went on to gross over $500 million worldwide, becoming one of the most successful R-rated comedies of all-time. A Million Ways To Die In The West had a similar budget of $40-$50 million and didn't make more than $90 million when all was said and done. Do people prefer the voice acting of Seth Macfarlane over the live acting? Or maybe they just love a teddy bear that can drink and curse, yes that makes sense actually. We still don’t know »

Photo: Walt Disney Pictures Entertainment Weekly has released several new images from upcoming 2015 releases including the likes of some artwork from Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens as seen directly above as well as pics from Ted 2, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Furious 7, Jurassic World and many more. Full disclosure, just from looking at these pictures I wouldn't have been able to figure out what some of them are from, but lucky for you this isn't a "Guess the Movies" installment. Here's a look at several of the new pictures along with a little commentary of my own over the course of the next couple pages. I would have guessed this first picture below was for a Baby Mama sequel I didn't yet know existed -- in which case I'd have yelled, "Whoop whoop!" -- but alas, it's for a film called Sisters (previously known as The Nest »

The first official photo from Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2 is out, and it features Mark Wahlberg and his stuffed bear getting ready to do a little deep sea diving. Not sure why, but Ted's got a shovel, so they are obviously going down to look for something.
All we know about the story at this point is that it will focus on Ted fighting in court for the right to have a child with his human girlfriend. Morgan Freeman plays a legendary civil rights lawyer who helps him out.
Amanda Seyfried co-stars in the movie, and Liam Neeson and John Slattery will have small roles. The movie hits theaters on June 26th, 2015. I thought the first film was hilarious, and I'm hoping that the sequel will be even funnier.
Thanks to EW for the image. »

A Million Ways to Die in the West and the 2013 Oscar Ceremony taught us that people don't want to see Seth MacFarlane; they just want to hear him. Ted is one of the most successful R-rated comedies of all-time, and now we have the first Ted 2 image. We still don't know much what John (Mark Wahlberg) and Ted will be up to in the sequel other than part of the movie will take place at Comic-Con, Ted will need a civil rights lawyer (played by Morgan Freeman), and Amanda Seyfried has replaced Mila Kunis as the female lead. Also, MacFarlane tells EW that there won't be any new talking creatures in the sequel. "It's basically the way we treated Stewie in Family Guy,'' says MacFarlane. ''He's the only one of his kind who can talk.'' Hit the jump to check out the new Ted 2 image. The »

Mostly because the special effects on the film are still being done, we haven't yet seen any real first look photos from the forthcoming sequel Ted 2. There was a trailer that leaked briefly awhile back, but it was chock full of unfinished visual effects shots and it was taken down very quickly. However, we finally have the first official photo from the comedy that made it on our list of the 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015. This time Morgan Freeman is coming along for some fun as a high profile civil rights lawyer, though we don't see him in this first look photo. Instead, it's Mark Wahlberg and the title bear getting ready to dive. Here's the first look at Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2 from Entertainment Weekly: You can check out another photo that Mark Wahlberg posted from the set of Ted 2 right here. Ted 2 is directed by Seth MacFarlane, »

If you're already getting excited for the coming months, it's time to check out the brand-new offerings. They might even become your new favorites! »
Though the fallout from the hacked Sony emails from the likes of Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal, producer Scott Rudin and even writer Aaron Sorkin has been unprecedented, it turns out that not all the previously private emails require an apology.
Channing's email is particularly amazing. In a message between Pascal, a few Sony executives and his 22 Jump Street co-star Jonah Hill, the charismatic star congratulates the team on their box office hit with an ... errr, enthusiastic email.
