“The Hangover” actress Sondra Currie will be on location to pitch a new sci-fi television series “Ganymede Pan” to fans and others attending the convention. Currie is best known as Alan’s mother in all three “Hangover” movies.
Currie spoke with in detail about the premise of the television and her plans for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con International.
Read the interview below.
Latino-Review: Tell me more about this show “Ganymede Pan.” I’ve seen the trailer. What is this science-fiction television show you’re trying to promote?
Sondra Currie: It’s a situation in which the universe is in grave danger. I play General Tai. She is the nemesis on the show. There’s a psychotropic substance or we call it a “trope. »

The evolution of apes was still a big enough draw to keep away the de-evolution of society, as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes topped The Purge: Anarchy at the box office. While The Purge: Anarchy suffered a lot more at the hands of critics, both sequels are doing very well at the box office; Dawn of the Planet of the Apes picked up an additional estimated $36 million and closes in domestic success (though it has been successful counting worldwide sales), while The Purge: Anarchy earned an estimated $28.4 million, which is actually a grand success considering its $9 million budget.
Following in their wake are two far less successful debuts; Planes: Fire & Rescue made an estimated $18 million on a $50 million budget, and Sex Tape made an estimated $15 million on a $40 million budget, and neither are getting much help from critical acclaim.
The other six films in the top ten are »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes lands in the #1 spot for the second weekend in a row, bringing in $36 million, raising its domestic cume to $138 million in ten days, but one newcomer did hold its own in the face of the apes... The Purge: Anarchy proves people don't care if they didn't like the first film in a franchise, you promise more of the same and they'll show up in hordes. The sequel to last year's The Purge brought in an estimated $28.3 million, which is less than the $34 million the previous film opened with a year ago, but when you more than triple your production budget in three days I think you've done something right. Of course, the production budget is one thing, the marketing budget on this thing had to be huge. Next up, another animated family film fails to inspire parents to take their kids to the »

Well, it seems despite the fact people didn't like 2013's The Purge that hasn't had much of an effect on the box office prospects of The Purge: Anarchy, which not only topped Friday's box office with an estimated $13 million, but scored a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, much better than the first film's "C". However, the Friday number is down $3.7 million from the first film and the sequel cost Universal $6 million more to produce. Then again, we're talking about a $9 million budget here, which is likely to be tripled by the end of the three day... not too shabby. In second was Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which is likely to eek above The Purge and take the weekend box office with a shade over $30 million or so. Disney's Planes: Fire & Rescue is performing similarly to The Purge in that it is a sequel to a »

A glob of stray semen is slathered on as impromptu hair gel. A high school flutist describes all the graphic details of her "one time at band camp." A slobbering frat boy climbs a ladder for a close look at disrobing co-eds — a glimpse so revelatory that he plummets backward without batting an eye. Raunch-comedy history is littered with off-color climaxes, and the genre hasn't blown its load quite yet.

We’re just past the Summer mid-point and the tide of rated R for “raunchy” feature films rolls on. So far, we’ve gotten a visit from Melissa McCarthy with Tammy and Seth McFarlane starring in (not just his voice like Ted) A Million Ways To Die In The West. We started early in May with the team captain of the Apatow squad, Seth Rogan in the hit Neighbors. And we’ve even had a sequel with the return of Joanh and Channing in 22 Jump Street. This new flick is unique, because it’s more of a reunion than sequel. Three years ago director Jake Kasdan (Orange County) teamed with Jason Segal (another member of the Apatow frat) and Cameron Diaz (co-star of that milestone of “R” comedy hits, There’S Something About Mary) for the box office hit Bad Teacher. Now there’s a sequel in the works for »

Right now audiences can see Mark Duplass acting awkwardly beside Melissa McCarthy in the thoroughly disappointing comedy Tammy. But later this summer, a much better display of the actor's talent alongside "Mad Men" star Elisabeth Moss will hit theaters in The One I Love. The indie debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, telling the story of of a marriage on the verge of breaking down. In one last effort, Ethan (Duplass) and Sophie (Moss) take a weekend vacation for one last shot at saving their marriage. Both Moss and Duplass have been said to turn in spectacular performances, and the trailer certainly shows that, along with a style like Sofia Coppola meets Wes Anderson with a sense of ominous oddity. Watch it now! Here's the first trailer for Charlie McDowell's The One I Love, originally from Apple: The One I Love is directed by author Charlie McDowell, making his feature directorial debut, »

After being stuck in development for several years, the video game adaptation Uncharted is finally moving in the right direction, with Seth Gordon coming on board to direct back in February. While the production still hasn't found the right actor to play Nathan Drake yet, the filmmaker revealed that production will start in early 2015.
"I think very early next year. That's the plan. That's like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie."
The director added that they, "just got the script to a really good place," while adding that the movie will be "very international" with settings "all over the world." David Guggenheim (Safe House) wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay.
The project is adapted from the hit Naughty Dog video game that follows treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who sets off on a quest to find the famed city of El Dorado, »
Last month, with a new movie from the diminutive Kevin Hart in theaters, we cooked up a graphic comparing the heights of Hollywood’s leading men … and now, it’s the women’s turn. We’ve got two comedies in theaters this month starring comediennes near the short and tall ends of our spectrum — that’d be the teeny Melissa McCarthy in Tammy and the towering Cameron Diaz in Sex Tape — so we plopped them on our chart alongside A-list ladies representing each height, as determined by a wealth of online research and the invaluable obsessives at celebheights.com. What did we learn? Well, for one thing, the ideal height for a female superstar would appear to be five-foot-seven, since there’s an explosion of bankable ladies clustered at that mark, including Angelina Jolie (pictured on the chart), Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock, and Anne Hathaway. But it’s also kind »

Melissa McCarthy returns to the Best Comedy Guest Actress race for the third year running for hosting "Saturday Night Live." She lost in 2012 to Kathy Bates ("Two and Half Men") and last year to Melissa Leo ("Louie"). She also contends again in Comedy Actress for "Mike and Molly"; she won that race back in 2011. Below, we break down the pros and cons of her "SNL" appearance. -Break- Join the red-hot discussion about the Emmys going on right now in our fiery forums Synopsis: McCarthy's episode, which aired on February 1, was the thirteenth of the 39th season of this NBC programming staple.

From the moment he laid eyes on her, Ben Falcone knew Melissa McCarthy was one-of-a-kind. The couple met as students at the The Groundlings Theatre & School in California, though Falcone already knew who she was. "She was a couple years older than me. She was in college in my hometown where I went to high school [and] she was this goth person," the Tammy director/co-writer said on E!'s Chelsea Lately Monday. "She had blue hair and she was really scary. In a good way! Scary and pretty!" At the time, he said, "I had long bangs and a couple of earrings and A Clockwork Orange shirts and Tevas. I had a whole situation...I was light-alt...The girls that I knew were also light-alt, and they would »
Didn't stay up for Monday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here's some of what you might have missed:
Jimmy Fallon and announcer Steve Higgins played Catchphrase with "Tonight Show" guests Michael Strahan and Diane Kruger, and the latter star admitted up front that she might not be good at the game because she's not American. But the German-born actress was determined to keep her country's winning streak alive following Germany's triumph at the World Cup, and brought a steely reserve to the match. Unfortunately, the combo of teammates Fallon and Strahan could not be stopped, and the duo came out on top thanks to a last-minute solve by Strahan for the clue "Silent but deadly." "I don't fart, man!" Strahan protested, before coming up with the correct phrase.
Strahan also sat down with Fallon to chat about his co-hosting gig with Kelly Ripa on "Live! with Kelly and Michael, »

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, the weekend's only newcomer, managed to oust Transformers: Age Of Extinction from the box office top spot and handily beat its predecessor in opening weekend returns. Meanwhile only one film managed to increase in sales. Here is the weekend box office top 10.
#1. Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes - $73 million
Clearly, people wanted to see Andy Serkis acting like a primate, so that's good news for Andy and bad news for any real primates who were hoping to star in any upcoming remakes of Dunston Checks In. The first film in the rebooted franchise, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, only made $54 million in its debut, meaning the sequel beat it by almost $19 million.
#2. Transformers: Age Of Extinction - $16.5 million »
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which takes place ten years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, jolted the weekend box office with $73 million, and also took 20th Century Fox across the $1 billion mark in domestic ticket sales this year — the first studio to do so this year. The fourth Transformers, which was on top the past two weekends, came in second with $16.5 million. Melissa McCarthy's comedy Tammy took the third spot with $12.9 million. 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2 continued to hold steady at fourth and fifth with $6.7 million and $5.9 million respectively. In limited release, Richard Linklater's 12-year project Boyhood, which David Edelstein praised as "momentous," earned $359,000 from just five theaters for a per-screen average of $71,800 — the second highest of the year so far. (Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel is first.) »

With strong reviews and goodwill from its well-liked predecessor, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes easily ruled the domestic box office this weekend.Overall, though, it was another slow weekend at U.S. movie theaters: the Top 12 earned $138.6 million, which is down 26 percent from the same weekend last year.Debuting at 3,967 theaters, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes earned $72.6 million this weekend. That's a 33 percent improvement over the last movie's $54.8 million opening, and is also noticeably higher than last Summer's World War Z ($66.4 million). Of course, it's way off from the $90-million level that some other Summer movies have reached, though the Apes brand is obviously not as popular as Transformers, Spider-Man or X-Men.The movie's strong debut can be attributed to a few factors. First, 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes was well-received by moviegoers, and has connected with many more during its post-theatrical run. »

Fox's acclaimed sequel "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" beat expectations to pull in an estimated $73 million debut at the domestic box office this weekend. That's well ahead of the $54.8 million debut of its predecessor "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" back in 2011.
The film also opened in 26 international territories over the weekend where it managed $31.1 million. However, much of the world will not be getting it until next weekend due to various markets holding off the film until after the World Cup. The film is Fox's third straight strong debut in a row this Summer following excellent starts for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "The Fault in Our Stars".
Meanwhile, with the help of a robust result in global markets - especially China - "Transformers: Age of Extinction" has become the biggest film of the year so far with a whopping $752 million in global revenue, pushing »

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" ruled the box office this weekend as 20th Century Fox continues to dominate the summer. The Matt Reeves directed thriller which is both a prequel and a sequel earned an estimated $73 million. That is higher than pre-release polling indicated and beats both "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" $54.8 million in 2011 and Tim Burton's "Planet of the Apes" which opened to $68.5 million in 2001. With an A- Cinemascore and the best reviews for any live action studio movie this summer "Dawn" should easily surpass "Rise's" $176.6 million cume. Dropping to no. 2 was "Transformers: Age of Extinction" with another $16.5 million and $209 million to date domestic. The fourth installment in the "Transformers" franchise has taken in $xxx million worldwide which means a fifth is absolutely on the way. Holding somewhat better than expect in third was the Melissa McCarthy comedy "Tammy." With another $12.9 million the Warner Bros. »
