While studios tout records, market share and No. 1 status based on box office grosses, we thought it’d be a good idea to look at some of this year’s summer films (tentpoles and not) to see how their budgets stacked up against their worldwide grosses to date. These budget numbers do not include domestic/international marketing and distribution costs, nor do they take into account the splits with exhibitors, but they do give an idea of outlay and income. Bear in mind, that while some of the biggest offshore grosses come from China, the studios are only getting a 25% cut from that territory. Also, some of these pictures will end up doing well in home entertainment and may make a profit over time — as in, a few years.
Here are some of the films we were able to compile from smallest to highest budgets with worldwide grosses (and percentage »
- Anita Busch and Nancy Tartaglione
Director: Jake Kasdan.
Running Time: 94 minutes.
Synopsis: A couple hoping to reignite their sex lives decide to make a sex tape. Unfortunately the tape is accidentally uploaded to The Cloud and syncs with a set of iPads the couple handed out at Christmas. They soons find themselves attempting to retrieve the iPads and delete the video.
Despite the lurid sadness of recent events involving private material and The Cloud, there must be at least one person wringing their hands with delight over at Sony. Suddenly it’s made their film ‘of the moment’ with its finger on the pulse of the current climate surrounding privacy and the internet. That’s just a stroke of luck though, as this film is essentially an idea with nowhere to go. The idea of a personal moment being captured and made available »

On 3rd September, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel team up as husband and wife in comedy caper Sex Tape, and hunt down their private video that has accidentally been synced to all their friends and family’s iPads.
This is not the first time we’ve seen the pair together in a film, having previously starred opposite each other back in 2011 for Bad Teacher. The on-screen chemistry between Jason and Cameron is undeniable, so we’ve had a look back at a few more of the best on-screen pairings.
Another film couple that keep coming back to work with each other, Sandler and Barrymore have now starred opposite each other three times in the space of 15 years. The partnership began back in 1998 with the romantic comedy classic The Wedding Singer, blossomed through to 50 First Dates and, most recently, continued into Blended which was released earlier this year. »

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel get themselves into a rather tricky position in Sex Tape, in more ways than one. The two bounced off each other pretty well in Bad Teacher and apparently, that was enough to convince director Jake Kasdan to throw them together again and cut loose with some cheeky nudity and a naughty premise and the end result is a flabby, largely unfunny comedy. Awkward...
Right away, the couple are seen getting up close and very personal, but those were the good old days fondly recalled by Annie (Diaz) who now writes a parenting blog between chores, sleep and sexual frustration. Her now-husband Jay (Segel) has resorted to booking appointments for possible nookie and when they do find the time, it's all friction and no sparks. »
Since her 1994 film debut in The Mask, birthday girl Cameron Diaz has taken Hollywood by storm with her stunning good looks, infectious laugh and uninhibited nature. Not to mention her talent, which she's not only proven with her flair for comedy, but also her versatility in dramatic films as well The bombshell turns 42 today, and has had a variety of unforgettable moments on film, including that classic scene with Ben Stiller in There's Something About Mary, where she tried to slick down her mane with an interesting hair gel. Her most recent film, Sex Tape, hit theaters earlier this summer. In the comedy, Diaz plays a married woman who tries to spice up her sex life with her hubby (Jason Segel) by »
Ah, the summer of 2014: It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times. Though mostly, let’s face it, it was the worst. Yet even as horrific violence and heartbreakingly premature deaths and hemorrhagic fevers have marred the past few months, there have also been a few spots of levity. And most are thanks to butts.
True, the humble hiney is no stranger to celebration, especially when it’s warm outside. (You may, however, be shocked to learn that Sisquo’s “Thong Song” was actually released in January.) But this summer went above and beyond, prominently featuring ladies’ posteriors in movies, »

Cameron Diaz (The Counselor) and Jason Segel (The Five Year Engagement) and director Jake Kasdan, who teamed up for the well-liked 2011 movie Bad Teacher, reunite in the undeniably salacious–and inferior–comedy Sex Tape.
Jay (Segel) and Annie (Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but ten years and two kids have cooled the passion. To get it back, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one three-hour marathon session. It seems like a great idea until they discover that their most private video has been accidentally uploaded to “the cloud” and gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure – tracking down leads, »
It looks like CBS is treating its actors pretty well, cha-ching-wise.
Two and a Half Men’s Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer take the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in Forbes’ annual list of highest-paid male TV actors with a respective $26 million and $19 million in annual earnings between June 2013 and June 2014. This will be the third year in a row that Kutcher, whose tech cred recently landed him a gig as a product engineer with Lenovo, has landed the top spot. Cryer, meanwhile, is building upon Two and a Half Men’s monies with a huge book advance for an upcoming »

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel star in the raunchy R-rated comedy as a couple whose personal sex tape designed to spice up their marriage somehow leaks onto the Internet.

After two weekends away from the top spot, the space renegades of Guardians of the Galaxy clinched the #1 position at the weekend box office once again. With $17.6 million in its fourth frame – a small 30% drop from last week’s take, outstanding for a Marvel Studios film – the sci-fi adventure is days away from becoming 2014′s highest-grossing film. (Its $251.9 million gross so far is the biggest of the summer session, having passed Transformers: Age of Extinction‘s North American final on Saturday.) With such a good hold, it is likely the film will re-emerge to the top spot over Labor Day weekend and now stands a good chance of surpassing $300 million if strong word-of-mouth continues.
Dropping to second but continuing its robust run were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, bringing in $16.8 million, for a $145.6 million cume. Later this week, the Paramount film will surpass G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, another »

From playing a live-action Disney princess to a sexy, tough-as-nails con-artist, here are some of Amy Adams' best films.
Today, acclaimed actress Amy Adams turns 40, and in celebration of her incredible and critically praised career, we take this opportunity to look at some of her most beloved films.
Adams has been nominated for five Oscars, and has played everything from a live-action Disney princess to a sexy, tough-as-nails con-artist. Here are her seven best-reviewed films, according to their Rotten Tomatoes score.
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 86%
The film follows Madeleine, an art dealer, whose very presence throws the lives of her middle-class, North Carolina in-laws into chaos. Amy Adams plays a childlike and naive pregnant girl who is amazed by her sister-in-law's seemingly glamorous life. This was really Adams' breakthrough performance and the first film to snag her an Oscar nomination.

Nudity on-screen is no new thing, obviously. Way back in 1934, Tarzan and His Mate engaged in a very lusty, full-on naked swim, which shocked Depression era audiences everywhere. But that’s the thing, nudity in movies is usually about sex. Not so when comedic actors do it. They use their un-yoga’d, un-tanned, non-waxed naked bodies as a tool for being funnier. Take Jason Segel in Finding Sarah Marshall. As his girlfriend dumped him, he stood a thousand percent nude — and limp – in his apartment (for what felt like hours), and we howled. When Frank the Tank (Will Ferrell) went streaking in Old School, his exposed full moon wasn’t about being hot, it was about being hilarious.

Midway through the Hollywood Foreign Press Associations Grants Banquet, actor and comedian Jason Segel came onstage with Anne Heche to accept on behalf of Outfest and UCLA with a beaming smile and said, “I’m so excited we’re presenting here at the Golden Globes.” After the laughter died down, Heche told him, no they were at an event where the HFPA gave grants to worthy causes, not at the famous awards show. “Ok,” said Segal. “I’ll adjust my speech. As a little boy I always thought with a start in a little town and a lot of luck and

We are still two weeks away from the official start of the movie awards season with the launch of the Venice, Telluride and Toronto fall festivals but quite frankly the Hollywood Foreign Press Association got things rolling Thursday night with their annual Grants Banquet. The organization doled out $1.9 million for worthy charitable causes. This year marks the first time the event, held at the Beverly Hilton each August, took place in the evening rather than as a luncheon. Considering that just about every studio awards consultant was present and that several hopefuls from seen and yet unseen movies were enlisted to accept the various grants, you could say the race is off and running. Especially given that the HFPA’s Golden Globes show ranks only behind the Oscars and Grammys in viewership among kudofests.
Second-term HFPA President Theo Kingma told me that switching the event to nighttime was his idea »

Kerry Washington, Kristen Bell, Channing Tatum, and Robert Pattinson were just some of the stars to step out for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Grants Banquet in La on Thursday evening. The charitable event also brought out younger film favorites like Hailee Steinfeld, Elle Fanning, and Logan Lerman, who stuck together inside while posing for photos. Sofia Vergara, who popped up in a sexy red dress (but without her new boyfriend, Joe Manganiello), was all smiles on the red carpet before she took the stage with HFPA president Theo Kingma. Also on hand for the fun were veteran actor Morgan Freeman, funny guys Jason Segel and Andy Samberg, Obvious Child star Jenny Slate, and Nick Jonas, who hid his bulging muscles under a sleek gray suit. While a suited-up Robert Pattinson made sure to log time with fellow Brit Eddie Redmayne, Scandal star Kerry Washington - who has slowly emerged »
Like most duels, this one starts at dawn.
About 5,000 people, some of them dressed in purple wigs or stars-and-stripes hats, have lined up outside Rumsey Playfield in New York’s Central Park in the wee hours of what will turn out to be a beautiful June morning. The attraction? A chance to watch Jennifer Lopez debut songs from her latest album on the nation’s most-watched morning show, ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Tom Cibrowski, the show’s senior executive producer, shows me a helicopter flying high above. The whirlybird is taking shots of this spectacle, which has a difficulty factor, logistically speaking, of 11. George Stephanopoulos, Amy Robach and other members of the “Gma” on-air team have had to tape segments during ad breaks to gain time to be ferried up to the concert site while the show is being broadcast. No matter. Securing J. Lo, says Cibrowski, represents “one »

Adam Levine is enjoying marital bliss!The Maroon 5 frontman took to Instagram on Monday to share an adorable selfie with his new wife, Behati Prinsloo. "The Voice" judge looked sporty in a Hawaiian shirt, blue bandana and aviators. Meanwhile, his blushing bride rocked a white tank top, retro sunnies and a black hat."There is a strong situation going on here," Levine captioned the cute candid. Earlier in the day, the Victoria's Secret beauty showed off her skills on the golf course, writing, "Putting for par….#Madeit." The couple tied the knot at Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico, last month in front of 300 guests, including Jason Segel, Robert Downey Jr., Jonah Hill, Erin Heatherton and Candice Swanepoel. They started dating about two years ago, shortly after his split from fellow model and longtime girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna. They made their first red carpet appearance together four months later at »
