School is in session. Whether or not you are headed back to school next month is neither here nor there, but what is of utmost importance is the fact that your day-to-day makeup could likely use a reset. "I think we're coming out of the crazy fun makeup phase, and will see a return to '90s-inspired matte neutrals come fall," predicted celebrity makeup artist Suzie Kim. With beauty girls like Zendaya and Kat Dennings jumping on the grey-brown matte bandwagon, we're jonsing for the chance to recreate the '90s supermodel face ourselves. For a quick and easy take on the look, Suzie schools us on all things coffee-colored. Firstly, it's a universally flattering color, with »
Shortly following the turn of the millennium came a transitional moment in Hollywood humour. Comedies featuring adolescents and comedies featuring adults had never been a rare sight, but following the Farrelly brothers’ There’s Something About Mary (1998), the maturation of the American Pie (1999) series, and particularly with the rise of the Frat Pack (a term coined in a Variety review of Old School (2003)), it became increasingly popular to combine the two, and to blur the line dividing maturity and immaturity that is supposed to magically appear during the progression into adulthood.
Suddenly, it was common to see films reversing the coming-of-age narrative of many teen comedies, continuing the natural progression of slacker films such as Clerks (1994), and intensifying the feckless nature of adults from examples such as The Big Lebowski (1998) and Office Space (1999). The Frat Pack were at the forefront of that change, and their movie Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) was its harbinger, »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

Taiwan-born Justin Lin has made his first film in Asia since becoming a Hollywood sensation as director of four of the “Fast & Furious” franchise movies.
Lin is producer, alongside Chinese media tycoon Bruno Wu, on “Hollywood Adventures,” which released in China late last week and was the world’s fifth biggest movie this weekend according to Rentrak, with a $26 million opening.
In 2012 Lin and Wu formed a joint venture company, Perfect Storm Entertainment, which produced the picture alongside China’s Enlight Pictures. Enlight is also the distributor in China.
The film is an unusual hybrid and may be a model of things to come from China.

“This is like a film that’s started shooting before the script’s finished,” exclaims one protagonist in “Hollywood Adventures.” He pretty much sums up this scattergun action-comedy helmed by Timothy Kendall, produced by Justin Lin, and made almost entirely with mainland Chinese coin. Following two disaster-courting Chinese tourists and their hardass tour guide on a roller-coaster ride through a series of “this could only happen in a movie” moments in Hollywood, the pic is slickly executed by a mostly American crew, but the action sometimes looks as if it’s been spliced in from outtakes of the “Fast & Furious” franchise. While the result won’t entice overseas viewers, and industry in-jokes may go over the heads of Chinese audiences, the fail-proof casting should help generate respectable if not massive local biz.
Produced by Beijing Enlight Pictures and Seven Stars Entertainment and Media Group, the film reps a further step in Sino-American co-productions, »

If YouTube hits are the new Nielsen ratings for late-night programs, then The Late Late Show With James Corden is off to a pretty fast start. Barely two months after launching, CBS’s reinvention of its 12:35 a.m. talk show has already spawned 17 clips with over 1 million online views apiece (seven of which boast more than 5 million plays). While some smart guest-bookings have played a part in these viral victories — One Direction and Justin Bieber are guaranteed to draw online eyeballs — Corden’s new show has also generated big buzz with some seemingly simple ideas: Jason Alexander adapting George Constanza’s answering-machine message for Kat Dennings, or Katie Couric pulling a prank on her British-born host. But while Late Late Show is playing the viral-video game well, it hasn’t been completely obsessed with finding Big Moments. Instead, Corden, bandleader Reggie Watts, and exec producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe »

Kat Dennings' is bangin'! (Literally.) The Two Broke Girls star debuted her latest chop on Instagram, revealing choppy bangs. Overall, the actress clung to her hair length, minus a few healthy inches off for a refreshed look. "Eddie Vedder realness served by @gregoryrussellhairand @rachel_goodwin with special guest star @jlsark," the 28-year-old captioned her snapshot. Why yes—the new hair chop is somewhat reminiscent of the Pearl Jam lead singer's '90s mane, but with just a pinch more sassiness and style that fits Kat's charismatic personality. With amply added layers, a rich chocolate hue and an effortlessly tousled style, the look blends edgy and »
Josh Groban and Kat Dennings make a "cute couple," don't they? Ellen DeGeneres certainly thinks so, as she repeatedly told the singer on her eponymous talk show Tuesday. "Kat Dennings, your girlfriend, was here not long ago saying that you're both nerds," the comedienne said. "Yes. She was," Groban said. "Yes, very true." "Is that Ok that she outed you as a nerd?" DeGeneres asked. "Yes, I think that was outed long ago," the 34-year-old "What I Did for Love" singer said. "That's been out there since at least sixth grade, I feel like." "Is that what you bonded over?" DeGeneres asked. "Your »
Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders' The Croods had a rather impressive voice cast full of stars - but the sequel is evidently going even bigger. How do we know? Because all of the lead cast members will be back, and this time around joined by Leslie Mann and Kat Dennings. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that the two very funny ladies will be joining the ensemble of The Croods 2. As things stand, the rest of the cast includes Nicolas Cage (as Grug), Emma Stone (as Eep), Ryan Reynolds (as Guy), Catherine Keener (as Ugga) and Clark Duke (as Thunk). Weirdly there still aren't any plot details available, but the trade does have word on the roles that Mann and Dennings will be playing. It seems that part of the plot of The Croods 2 will involve the titular family meeting another prehistoric clan, and competing in some fashion. »
Mann will voice the matriarch of a rival family to the Croods, while Dennings will feature as the new family's daughter whose instinct to hunt is being suppressed, The Hollywood Reporter reveals.
DreamWorks Animation is expanding the voice cast for The Croods 2, its upcoming sequel to the 2013 animated hit, with news that Leslie Mann (This is 40) and Kat Dennings (Thor: The Dark World) will lend their voices to new characters.
Mann will portray the matriarch of an upscale family that winds up in a rivalry with the titular caveman family and their human companion. Dennings, meanwhile, will play the frustrated daughter of that new family, who yearns to hunt but is consistently suppressed by her “civilized” parents.
The key players are all back for this follow-up, including Nicolas Cage as the Croods’ patriarch Grug, Catherine Kenner as mother Ugga, feisty daughter Eep (Emma Stone), luggish son Thunk (Clark Duke), ferocious grandma Gran (Cloris Leachman) and Ryan Reynolds as human companion Guy. Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders are once again writing and directing.

DreamWorks Animation announced in April 2013 that it was working on a sequel to caveman family comedy The Croods, but given how long it takes to produce CG films generally, it’s not a shock to have to wait for updates. But we do at least now know that Kat Dennings and Leslie Mann will be part of the voice cast for the follow-up.The sequel, which is once more from writing/directing team Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders, picks up with the prehistoric family (including Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Clark Duke, Catherine Keener and Ryan Reynolds as human pal Guy), settling into life in a community. But this time, they’ll have to deal with snooty upscale neighbours who want to compete with them. Mann will play the matriarch of this new family, with Dennings as the daughter, who has had her hunting instincts suppressed.Mann, last seen in The Other Woman, »
