Man of Steel box office to reach $150 million in North America today (photo: Dylan Sprayberry as the young Clark Kent in Man of Steel) Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill in the title role, Man of Steel will undoubtedly pass the $150 million milestone at the North American box office on Tuesday, June 19, 2013. Partly boosted by 3D surcharges, after about four and a quarter days (including $12 million from Thursday evening screenings), Warner Bros.’ $225 million-budgeted Man of Steel has taken in $141.26 million from 4,207 Us/Canada locations, including $12.58 million on Monday as per Box Office Mojo. For comparison’s sake: From Friday-Monday, without the advantage of box-office-inflating 3D surcharges, Jon Favreau / Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man earned $105.55 million, or about $117 million today. So, if the 3D surcharges* are deducted from Man of Steel‘s Friday-to-Monday total, the 2013 Superman reboot would be left with $116.34 million. In other words, the $140 million-budgeted Iron Man »

The Fifty Shades of Grey cast is still one of the most-buzzed-about topics in Hollywood, and many actors who have been rumored for roles have spoken up about the book's adaptation.

When Anastasia Steele first meets kinky billionaire Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, she thinks to herself, “No one should be this good-looking.” So it’s no surprise that one of the names thrown around to play the impossibly handsome leading man is the impossibly handsome Armie Hammer.
But is the Lone Ranger star game to fill Grey’s fitted suit in the potentially Nc-17-rated film? Well, in a recent Playboy interview, he addressed the casting rumors:
“No one actually offered me the movie, but while I was working on Lone Ranger my agent brought it up, and I said ‘Nope, »

How do you end a comedy movie about the apocalypse? Hilariously, of course, but if Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen had their initial drothers for the end to "This is the End" — you know, back when Daniel Radcliffe was wand-swatting away the then-atrocious script — it would've been an even more heavenly affair.
Obviously, there are spoilers abound here, so look away now if you haven't seen the movie...
Still with us? Okay, splendid.
So, as you hopefully already know by now, there were gobs of celebrity cameos in "End," ranging everywhere from the ax-swinging Emma Watson to Danny McBride's surprise sex slave Channing Tatum. But behind door number three (a.k.a. Heaven's Gate) awaited none other than the Backstreet Boys, sending things off on a high note, literally, with a performance of their big hit "Everybody."
"We were trying to figure out a way to spruce up the end, »

True to Rogen’s style, This is the End is an over-the-top, sometimes offensive, often immature, but always very funny comedy about a group of celebrities faced with the Apocalypse. No heroes, just real guys trying to figure things out as the world falls apart.
In the first scene of the movie, we’re in an airport, where a fan calls out to Seth Rogen, who we realize that is playing himself. In fact, all of the celebrities in this movie are playing (versions of) themselves. Seth meets up with his buddy and fellow comedian Jay Baruchel, who is visiting from Chicago, and we dive right into the bromance montage of the two spending all day getting way too high and playing video games. Soon, Seth convinces Jay to join him for a party at James Franco’s house. At this point, the debauchery really kicks in – sex, drugs, and »

Man of Steel weekend box office: Above estimates, but real June record remains beyond the reach of Superman 2013 reboot (image: Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel) Somewhat surprisingly — it’s usually the other way around — Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel grossed more than $3 million above studio estimates released on Sunday, June 16, 2013. Directed by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch), and starring Henry Cavill (The Tudors, possibly the upcoming The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), the 2013 Superman reboot scored $116.61 million from 4,207 North American locations according to weekend box-office actuals found at Box Office Mojo. Once Thursday evening figures are added, the $225 million-budgeted Man of Steel‘s domestic cume reached $128.68 million by Sunday evening. (Check out: "Man of Steel international box office.") Now, Man of Steel‘s adjusted $116.61 million doesn’t change the June Box-Office Record Chart in any way. The Superman reboot remains ahead of the former official June champ, the Tom Hanks-, »

This Is the End opened in theaters last week, which means we were all finally invited to James Franco's blowout party of the Summer. The film has an impressive cast of hilarious leading men like James Franco and Seth Rogen, but there are even more celebs that only appear on screen for a few minutes.

In case you missed one or two (or are just dying for some spoilers), check out the star-studded list of actors playing themselves in the movie. Emma Watson Emma Watson has the most screen time of all the cameos, showing up first at James's party and then returning in the midst of the apocalypse with an axe in her hand.

Emma Watson is getting back into the fantasy game with Queen Of The Tearling. She’s reteaming with Harry Potter producer David Heyman for the book adaptation. The first novel from Erika Johansen’s forthcoming trilogy hasn’t even come out yet, but as is the new Hollywood custom, that means it’s ripe fodder for a movie.
The project is still looking for a director and writer for what a project that is described as a female Game Of Thrones. The book “is set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe when a malevolent Red Queen holds considerable power.”

By this point, everybody and their former lingerie model mother knows that Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" is based on a true story. What they may not know, however, is that the truer true story, told in journalist Nancy Jo Sales' reportorial book "The Bling Ring" (expanded from her original Vanity Fair article "The Suspects Wore Louboutins") is even wilder than the drug-fueled, celebrity-obsessed months depicted in Coppola's film.
You know how they say you can't make this s**t up? Yeah, that. Like alleged Bling Ring leading lady Rachel Lee leaving a stinky something in Rachel Bilson's house, or the self-obsessed monologues alleged accomplice-turned-reality TV star Alexis Neiers (oh yeah: She got a reality TV show, not that you'll see that hubbub on the big screen) delivered: All real.
Ahead, 16 crazy but realer-than-botox things you may not have known about the real story behind "The Bling Ring. »

A new red-band clip from This Is the End has been released.
Written and directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the comedy stars Franco, Rogen, McBride, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Emma Watson, all playing fictionalised versions of themselves.
The group assembles - along with a host of other celebrities - at a house party hosted by Franco, but are forced to fend for themselves after a global apocalypse occurs.
Franco recently discussed the experience of playing himself, explaining that the fictional Franco's obsession with Seth Rogen is an exaggeration of the pair's real-life bond.

For his latest movie, Seth Rogen invited five of his closest friends over to James Franco’s house to hole up for a few weeks as the world crumbled around them. And, in the end, a lot of moviegoers wanted to be a fly on the wall in that house.
This Is the End didn’t quite grab the No. 1 spot at the box office this weekend (we all knew how the Superbad-vs.-Superman battle would turn out), but it did score an impressive $33 million-plus debut, holding it down in second place and already recovering its $32 million budget.

Warner Bros decided not to move forward with "Justice League" until it knew whether "Man of Steel" was going to be a hit. The results are now in and "Man of Steel" performed better than expected. The studio was hoping to break the $100 million mark domestically, but "Man of Steel" took in $113.1 million over the weekend, bringing its worldwide debut to $196.7 million. The film cost $225 million to make. "Man of Steel" was able to beat "Toy Story 3" ($110.3 million) to take the record for the biggest June opening. It also easily surpassed "Superman Returns," which earned $52 million during its opening weekend (also in June) on a budget of $275 million. Due to poor results, "Superman Returns" failed to give Warner Bros a boost to push forward with its bigger DC strategy. "Man of Steel" currently has a 56% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes, but among fans, the film has a 82% rating. The opposite happened for "Superman Returns, »
Man of Steel weekend box office: June record (not really) broken by Superman 2013 reboot (photo: Newsman Laurence Fishburne and journalist Amy Adams are appalled by General Zod’s Man of Steel box-office hype) Extra! Extra! Man of Steel Breaks June Box-Office Record! That’s what most publications the world over have been heralding today. Man of Steel, of course, is the latest Superman reboot — directed by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch), and starring Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Immortals) as Clark Kent aka Superman. The June box office referred to is the domestic one, as in the United States and Canada. As for the word "record" … Well, it apparently means all sorts of different things to all sorts of different hype-makers and to those who blindly embrace the hype and help to spread it. According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, this June 14-16 weekend, Man of Steel took in »

Child star? What were they in?
He cut his teeth on various TV shows including Roseanne, Dr Quinn: Medicine Woman, Quantum Leap and even Murder She Wrote. But we all remember him best as little Tommy Solomon in the terrific 3rd Rock From The Sun. He also got an ice hockey boot through the face in Halloween: H20 (1998) and was juuuuuuust about legal in the brilliant 10 Things I Hate About You. Though it may not feel like it, you can totally ogle him in that film, guilt free. Go ahead. I’ll wait. »
