25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

13 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan Reunite to Play Lee Atwater, Karl Rove in 'Young Americans'

8 May 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If a '70s road trip adventure with Karl Rove and Lee Atwater is what you like to see at the multiplex, get ready. The long-delayed Young Americans, previously titled College Republicans and Young Republicans, has now come together with Kill Your Darlings stars Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan reuniting with both one another and director John Krokidas to play Atwater and Rove, respectively. With StarStream Media committed to produce and finance, and Xyz Films selling the movie at Cannes, Young Americans tells the true story of two ambitious college buddies who go on a road trip cross-country and "tarnish the American dream one state at a time." They travel from "the South all the way to the White House in a crash course of dirty tricks and politics." DeHaan's Rove is portrayed as "the straight-laced and ambitious student who was running for the head of the College Republicans" and »

Nicolas Cage: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

6 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

Joss Whedon was left speechless by Paul Bettany's Vision in 'Age Of Ultron'

27 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Joss Whedon's tired. There is a certain kind of fatigue that is particular to the directors of these giant mega-budget high stakes sequels, and if you end up talking to one of those directors, you can see it in their eyes. They're zombies. I remember talking to Gore Verbinski near the end of the third "Pirates" film, and it was like he was having an out of body experience. Because Whedon's tired, he's been candid about some of the speed bumps they experienced making the new "Avengers" film. He's spoken in the past few days about the decision to bring Coulson back to life after "The Avengers," the things he regrets about "Agents Of Shield," and more. When I sat down to speak with him a few days after seeing the film, I told him that I wanted to ask about an amazing sequence that was in the original »

13 British comedy stars lured to Hollywood in the 1990s

20 April 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hollywood went hunting for lots of British comedy talent in the 1990s - and lured the likes of Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson...

For some reason, Hollywood fell in love with British actors again in the 1990s. Sparked by Alan Rickman's turn as Hans Gruber in Die Hard at the back end of the 1980s, many movie villains were either Brits, or in the case of Cliffhanger, John Lithgow taking on the mannerisms of a British antagonist.

Yet in particular, Hollywood went recruiting British comedy talent, with faces then mainly - but not exclusively - known for their small screen work getting roles of various sizes in Hollywood productions. Here are some who racked up the air miles - starting with the man who arguably became one of the most successful...

Hugh Laurie - 101 Dalmatians

Laurie is a man of many talents, who ultimately cracked America with »

Dane DeHaan And Mia Goth Will Find A Cure For Wellness With Gore Verbinski

9 April 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There was a time before The Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean when Gore Verbinski was known not as Disney’s go-to director for big-budget bores, but rather as the exciting helmer behind excellent horror remake The Ring. Now, he’s attempting to regain some of that credibility by taking on a small-scale supernatural horror pic at New Regency called A Cure for Wellness, and to aid him in that pursuit, Verbinski is calling on the talents of Kill Your Darlings star Dane DeHaan and on-the-rise actress Mia Goth.

DeHaan will star as a man who is sent to Europe in order to retrieve his boss from a “wellness spa,” only to become trapped in the facility and realize that its staff members have a far more nefarious goal than simply improving the health of their patients.

Goth, meanwhile, is in negotiations to take on the supporting role of »

Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker are in negotiations to join Ang Lee's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk along side newcomer Joe Alwyn as the title character, Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin and Kristen Stewart.

Shooting is planned to begin in August or September. Why is Singleton off the picc Here's how he tells it on Instagram: Variety

Real talk! The reason I am not making this picture is because the people involved aren't really respectful of the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur. I won't say much if you want you can read my articles in Hollywood Reporter on authenticity in Black Storytelling ... To Pac's real fans just know I am still planning a movie on Tupac ... It doesn't matter what they do mines will be better. »

Dane DeHaan & 'Nymphomaniac' Star Mia Goth Lead Gore Verbinski Horror 'A Cure For Wellness'

8 April 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You might think with seaweed wraps, soothing sounds, luxurious environs, and a regimen of pampering and care, a spa would be the most unlikely setting for a horror movie. Perhaps that's what makes the idea behind Gore Verbinski's next film so perfect. Read More: Steve Carell May Be A 'Nuisance' For Gore Verbinski THR reports that Dane DeHaan and "Nymphomaniac" star Mia Goth will pair up for "A Cure For Wellness." Penned by Justin Haythe ("Revolutionary Road," "The Lone Ranger"), the story follows a young man sent to rescue his boss from the sinister doings of a "wellness spa," only to wind up trapped as well. Yikes. Never has exfoliating been more terrifying. This sounds like a interesting move for Verbinski, away from bloated blockbusters to something more in line with his leaner genre roots and films like "The Ring," "The Mexican," and "The Weather Man." Production starts this summer and you'll see it. »

Verbinski Scores "Cure for Wellness" Leads

8 April 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following the first three films in "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise along with "Rango" and "The Lone Ranger," filmmaker Gore Verbinski is returning to the horror genre which he previously dabbled in to great results with 2002's "The Ring".

Verbinski has reportedly cast Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth as the two leads in his upcoming supernatural horror tale "A Cure for Wellness" at New Regency. "Revolutionary Road" scribe Justin Haythe is writing the script.

DeHaan plays an employee who is sent to rescue his boss from a European 'wellness spa' but soon realizes he's trapped. He discovers that the facility has a more sinister purpose than just serving the health needs of its patients.

Goth would play a longtime patient who is oblivious to the spa director's dark designs for her. Filming on the project is slated to start in Europe in June.

Gore Verbinski Returns to Horror with A Cure For Wellness; Dane DeHaan to Star

8 April 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

While filmmaker Gore Verbinski is probably best known for helming the initial Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (those sequels are masterpieces compared to On Stranger Tides), he began as a sort of journeyman director with Mousehunt and The Mexican before hitting it big with The Ring. The 2002 film was a box office smash and scared the hell out of yours truly, and now the filmmaker is poised to return to the horror genre for the first time in over a decade. [caption id="attachment_299097" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Sony Pictures[/caption] We’ve known about A Cure for Wellness as a Verbinski project since last fall, but it is now firmed up as the filmmaker’s next movie as THR reports that Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth (Nymphomaniac) are set to star.

The name Gore Verbinski has complicated connotations. For a while, it inspired excitement in film fans. Now, that excitement cooled considerably, thanks in part to the director’s multiple years making bad, big-budget Disney movies. He’s trying to reclaim his name, though, and just took a significant step towards doing so. Verbinski has committed to making a supernatural horror […]

Dane DeHaan Finds A Cure For Wellness

8 April 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s been a few years since Gore Verbinski tackled full-on horror with The Ring. Since then, he’s mostly had to deal with skeletal buccaneers and other seagoing creatures in the Pirates franchise and the supernatural trappings of The Lone Ranger. But he’s looking to dig back into terrifying territory with A Cure For Wellness and has hired Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth to star.Revolutionary Road’s Justin Haythe – who worked with Verbinski on Ranger – is on script duty for this one, which focuses on a young man (DeHaan) sent to fetch his boss from a therapeutic institute nestled in the Swiss Alps. But while he’s there, his boss disappears and he has to extend his stay at the place. Which is when he realises he’s actually trapped and starts to uncover the dark secrets lurking around the hallways. Verbinski is a producer on this »

The 18 Scariest Horror Movie Opening Scenes, Ranked

1 April 2015 5:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some horror movies go with a "slow-build" approach, and some go for the jugular right off the bat. The unexpected horror hit "It Follows" definitely falls into the latter category, as you can see in the opening scene embedded below (narrated by director David Robert Mitchell). Are you sufficiently unnerved? Good! That's what we're going for here. As the indie horror hit prepares to expand into over 1,600 theaters this weekend, below I've ranked 18 of the most iconic/frightening horror openings of all time from least to most scary. The result is a completely objective list that will remain set in stone for all eternity. Are you ready? Can you handle it? Countdown starts now... 18. "Night of the Living Dead" (1968) "They're coming to get you, Barbara." While I have no doubt that contemporary audiences covered their eyes in fright during the opening sequence of Romero's original "Night of the Living Dead, »

'Rings' Begins Shooting; Will Be a Sequel to 'The Ring'

23 March 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, a report surfaced that Paramount's Rings is actually a prequel, set several years before the 2002 thriller The Ring, exploring the origins of Samara Morgan's reign of terror and how the deadly VHS tape was first created. Over the weekend, Rings director F. Javier Guti&#233rrez took to his Twitter account to confirm that his project is actually a sequel, set 13 years after the events of The Ring. The filmmaker also confirmed earlier today on his Twitter page that principal photography is starting today in Atlanta.

It's possible that Rings still may examine both Samara and the VHS tape's origins, but no story details have been confirmed, aside from where the movie is set within The Ring franchise timeline. The director has been posting several images to his Instagram account over the past few days, which confirm Samara Morgan's presence in the thriller, although we don't quite know »
