The summer box office sputtered to a close, down 15% from last year’s record breaker. Domestically, it was the worst showing for Hollywood in nearly a decade.
To be sure, there were massive hits such as “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” but this year’s crop of blockbusters was puny compared to last summer’s lineup, a batting order of heavy-hitters that included “Iron Man 3,” “Man of Steel” and “Despicable Me 2.”
Despite the gloomy results, there are valuable lessons and takeaways to be gleaned from a popcorn season that never really popped.
1.) Stars Still Matter
Yes, in an age of superhero films it appears to have become increasingly irrelevant who wears the cape or mask, but matching the right actor with the right material is still a recipe for success. “Maleficent” got to $750 million globally on the strength of Angelina Jolie’s name. The »

The line-up at this year's Toronto Film Festival has a much different feel than year's past and coming up with a list of most anticipated films isn't nearly as easy as previous years. Not because there's any lack of possible greatness, but in fact perhaps because the possibility is even greater, though in corners we may not expect. This year's fest is without what I would call a "big" film. David Dobkin's The Judge is opening the festival but at 141 minutes and with a trailer that does very little to convince me of its quality I have a hard time expecting much from it. Reese Witherspoon's Wild from director Jean-Marc Vallee is certainly one I will be seeing, but the anticipation level isn't entirely there and the somewhat muted Telluride response of respect with caveats has lessened my anticipation ever so slightly, the same could be said for Jon Stewart's Rosewater, »

In many ways this was always going to be a ‘Marking Time’ summer. The hoopla of debuting blockbusters was constantly being eclipsed by breaking news about the big summer movies of 2015/16. With photos and plot details being drip-fed all summer from the sets of Star Wars: Episode VII, Avengers: Age of Ulton and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, it took a bit of effort to get genuinely excited about the upcoming fourth Transformers movie.
There was an orderly, uncontroversial tone to the summer line-up this year; everybody behaved as predicted. There were no Lone Rangers or John Carters; no Battleship-level disasters. The biggest disappointments of the season were probably Seth MacFarlane’s Ted follow-up, A Million Ways to Die in The West and the entirely unwanted Expendables 3 (which scraped back $27m; barely enough to cover the cod liver oil and Sanatogen allowance for the cast).
Instead, the malaise was »

Donnie responded with a tweet back to his brother.

It looks like there are no hard feelings here. The reason Mark isn't attending is because it's the same day as his daughter Ella's birthday party. Ella will turn 11 on September 2. Mark even posted the 17 second video he sent to his brother and bride-to-be explaining this on his official Facebook page.
What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!
Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.

Three-day weekends are an excuse to be lazy, kick back with a glass of wine (or five), and meander around the home in a constant state of bliss. Then again, that’s the life of a Real Housewife everyday of the week.
For the plebes of the world with a few days off from toil, this Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to catch up on the marathon of shows playing on television, that range from gross (Botched) to fecund (19 Kids and Counting) to a marathon that’s finally coming to an end (The Simpsons). EW has compiled a »

In case you hadn't heard, Hollywood would like everyone to forget the summer of 2014 ever happened. Sure, there were some notable exceptions such as "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Lucy," "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "22 Jump Street," but for the most part it was a summer of disappointment. The laundry list of films that did not live up to their expectations is cringeworthy this season. "Amazing Spider-Man 2" (the better sequel that wasn't), "Edge of Tomorrow" (the great thriller that couldn't overcome a weak opening), "Tammy" (the end of Melissa McCarthy's $100 million run), "A Million Ways to Die in the West" (Seth McFarlane is not a leading man), "Sex Tape" (bad in and out of bed), "Million Dollar Arm" (should have thrown in September), "Deliver Us From Evil" (not enough of "The Conjuring") and "The Giver" (needed bigger teen stars), among others, just didn't cut it. Now, in the last »

The final episode of "Chelsea Lately" on E! served mainly as a reminder that, no, Ms. Handler isn't actually going away. The "My Horizontal Life" author will be headed to Netflix for her next talk show venture, but she still splurged on a fantastic sendoff special that culminated in a tremendous "We are the World" type mega-song with tons and tons of guest-stars. Look around in that crowd. Our eyes detect Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, Gerard Butler, Diablo Cody, Melissa McCarthy, Miley Cyrus, Joel McHale, and Tim Allen. And then a hundred or so others. But who ruled this star-studded goodbye? We picked the top five contributors. 5. Tim Gunn Even though the "Project Runway" guru spoke-sang his contribution, it was still tuneful and adorable. He's like a gay Yul Brynner up there. 4. Marlee Matlin Marlee Matlin was S-e-l-l-i-n-g that Asl translation at the right-hand corner of the screen. Pure ebullience from start to finish. »

Several A-list stars turned out for the final 'Chelsea Lately' show on E! Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston and Miley Cyrus were among the big time celebrities that joined Chelsea Handler on the final episode of 'Chelsea Lately' last night (Aug. 26, 2014). The 39-year-old funnywoman - who quit the E! talk show earlier this year after seven years - was clearly overwhelmed by the support of her celebrity pals as they banded together to sing farewell to her on her final broadcast. Chelsea and her A-list guests serenaded the crowd, chanting: ''Goodbye to E!, it's time to move on. She wants to sing, she wants to dance and get her groove on.'' Other stars who joined the tribute included Ellen DeGeneres, Selena Gomez, Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Vanessa Hudgens, Justin Theroux, Gerard Butler, Melissa McCarthy and Kelly Osbourne. As the show went off the air for the final time, »
“Is it because I’m a lesbian?” DeGeneres asks a completely naked Handler, who then acts like she had no idea DeGeneres is gay. “I thought you were married to Ryan Seacrest,” Handler replies before claiming she herself is a lesbian. “I live with a lesbian, actually, a confirmed lesbian. We have two dogs.” The argument continues until Handler insists she’s totally cool with being in a »

After seven years on E!, last night was the final episode of Chelsea Lately. It was less a bittersweet affair than a celebration, as Chelsea Handler hasn't been shy about how much she wanted to leave the network. The big climax was an especially star-studded sing-along to a parody of "We Are the World." Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, 50 Cent, Vanessa Hugdens, Fergie, Avril Lavigne, Gerard Butler, Kate Beckinsale, Tim Gunn, Justin Theroux, Melissa McCarthy, Allison Janney, Joel McHale, and like a zillion other people were there. Now if she can only have all these people show up to every episode of her Netflix show, we predict it will be a raging success. »

Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Melissa McCarthy, Dave Grohl, Sandra Bullock, 50 Cent and Gwen Stefani were among the many celebrities who gathered to send off late night host Chelsea Handler on her final E! talk show.
Handler, who is moving to Netflix, was also joined by Selena Gomez, Gerard Butler, Wiz Khalifa, Chloe Moretz, Johnny Knoxville and Fergie, among a slew of other stars, for their “We Are the World”-esque performance of “Roll Yourself a Joint and Have a Drink.”
“I’m really really appreciative to E! for giving me this opportunity to do the show, and I never really got a chance to be serious and say thank you,” she told the audience.
“I’ll see you on Netflix!”
Earlier in the show, Bullock and Aniston staged an intervention for the late night host alongside fellow friend Mary McCormack.
The trio joked that Handler’s move to Netflix was code for rehab. »
