5 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

John Krasinski has been making the rounds promoting his latest film, The Hollars, and earlier this week, he opened up to People about how he and wife Emily Blunt find time for each other in the midst of raising two daughters. "If we aren't working, we're at home with the kids. We raise our kids, and we're very important and present in our kids' lives, but at the end of the day, it's important to preserve your relationship." He continued, "It's really fun because I have an amazing wife who also will go out on dates on me. We do one date a week at least where it's just us." As to what their date nights consist of, John said, "Just go to dinner and talk, it's really easy. We don't need much. We just go to dinner and talk and have no baby talk." John and Emily most recently welcomed a daughter named Violet, »

Arthouse Audit: ‘Hell or High Water’ Tops ‘Southside With You’ and ‘Hands of Stone’

8 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend brings a rare event as three very different specialty films face off nationally on between 800-900 theaters. Debuting “Southside With You” (Roadside Attractions) and “Hands of Stone” (Weinstein) go up against “Hell or High Water” (Lionsgate) in its third week.

The winner is “Hell or High Water,” which after this weekend’s success could wind up the year’s highest-grossing specialized release.  “Southside With You” also scored high numbers, with “Hands of Stone” not up to its level.

Five Sundance releases are among this week’s new films, ranging from relatively wide opener “Southside” to Video on Demand entry “The Intervention.” As the Toronto Film Festival looms, the Park City event, despite offering half as many films, remains the biggest festival for acquisition titles.

Opening

Southside With You” (Roadside Attractions) – Metacritic: 75; Festivals include: Sundance, San Francisco, Seattle 2016

$3,065,000 in 813 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $3,762

A strong initial result »

Box Office: ‘Don’t Breathe’ Scares Up $26.1 Million As Hot Summer for Horror Continues

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Don’t Breathe,” a twisty story of a group of teenage delinquents who pick the wrong house to burglarize, dominated the late summer box office, debuting to a potent $26.1 million and topping charts. It joins a long list of recent horror films such as “The Purge: Election Year,” “The Conjuring 2,” “Lights Out,” and “The Shallows” that have all found success with audiences. It’s a genre that’s particularly attractive to studios, because these films don’t require much in the way of special effects or star power, making them cheaper to produce than comic book adventures and science-fiction fantasies.

“These are the films of bean counters’ dreams,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. “They are profit machines and even when they’re poorly reviewed, people line up for them.”

“Don’t Breathe” was backed by Sony’s Screen Gems and Steve Bersch’s Stage 6 Films, and »

John Krasinski talks Jack Ryan TV series, says first season will tackle Isis

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month it was confirmed that Amazon has ordered Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan to series, with John Krasinski (13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi) set to take on the role of the CIA analyst, and the actor has been chatting to Collider about the series and how they are approaching it.

“We’re doing 10 episodes and I think the interesting part about it is exactly what you said, everything’s changed so much; the line between film and TV has blurred so much over the years, I think Jack Ryan is a product of that blurring so much that I think that they’re not even really considering it a TV show, they’re calling it a movie that’s being told in 10 parts; and that’s not just an argument of semantics, it’s actually true. Carlton Cuse’s whole plan is we’re gonna shoot it on a movie budget, »

Exclusive Interview: Margo Martindale Talks The Hollars

27 August 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollars, which marks the second time The Office star John Krasinski has gotten behind the camera, takes an honest and heartfelt look at family dynamics and small-town life. The story follows John Hollar (Krasinski), who has lost his way a bit and returns to his small hometown after learning that his mother (Margo Martindale), the backbone of the family, has fallen ill and is about to undergo surgery.

Upon his return, he’s reunited with his ne’er do well brother (Sharlto Copley) and ineffectual father (Richard Jenkins), as old family issues bubble to the surface. John also has to come to grips with the fact he will be a father soon himself, as he and his girlfriend (Anna Kendrick) are expecting a baby.

How John Krasinski's Own Family Stories Made His New Film More Personal For Him

26 August 2016 3:06 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

John Krasinski has a new movie out this month, the sweet family indie comedy-drama The Hollars, and he's not just the star - he also directed the film. Though he didn't pen the script, Krasinski was still able to add a little of his own family's stories to make the drama more personal, not to mention the fact that he himself was feeling the pull of family while making the movie; wife Emily Blunt had recently had their first child, Hazel. When I sat down with Krasinski to chat about the movie, he talked about how his own family, including the one he's created with Blunt, influenced him while making The Hollars. Beyond that, we also talked about the nitty-gritty of his epic Lip Sync Battle with costar Anna Kendrick and got the scoop on how he really feels about Blunt's acting (spoiler: he's obsessed, in a very healthy way).

Margo Martindale Is Very Happy To Be Your Favorite Esteemed Character Actress

26 August 2016 2:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Margo Martindale still remembers the moment she decided she wanted to be a screen actress.

“When I left University of Michigan, I went to Harvard to act in a play at Threepenny Opera with Christopher Reeve,” the actress recently told IndieWire. “I remember sitting on the campus of Harvard, sitting under a tree and a light hit me in such a way. I was just thinking and I thought, ‘That’s what I’d like to do.'”

It may sound a bit like divine intervention, but Martindale had long been thinking about making the jump from stage acting, something she had done since she was just a kid, to the big screen. The Texas native knows the story sounds a little funny, but she delivers it with such conviction that it’s hard to deny. And she »

The Hollars Is Oozing With John Krasinski's Charm, But How Does the Rest of the Movie Hold Up?

26 August 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You can't help but like John Krasinski. He's basically Jim Halpert, for goodness sake, the guy Pam Beesly and the rest of the world fell for on The Office. Krasinski's likability translates onscreen, and critics agree his charm shines through in his new movie, The Hollars. The family dramedy is Krasinski's second time directing (his debut came with 2009's Brief Interviews With Hideous Men), so he's pulling double duty behind and in front of the camera. He plays an unsatisfied graphic artist named John Hollar who leaves New York City and returns to his small hometown when his mom Sally Hollar (Margo Martindale) is diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor. His brother (Sharlto Copley) is »

Q&A: John Krasinski and Margo Martindale Bonded Like a Real Family for ‘The Hollars’

25 August 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Hollars,” which debuts on Friday, takes a comedic look at a very emotional situation in a family that is, for better or for worse, a little disjointed. John Krasinski is in both the actor’s and the director’s chair for his latest project, accompanied by a cast of Anna Kendrick, Richard Jenkins, Sharlto Copley and Margo Martindale. Krasinski and Martindale spoke with Variety about bonding like a real family on the set of “The Hollars,” the awkward moments that bring out the truth of the film and their first job together.

How did you get attached to the project?

John Krasinski: I was attached as an actor six or seven years ago. I got sent the script and I don’t think I’ve said yes to anything faster. It was just a script that I felt – I mean, there’s a lot of family movies out »

John Krasinski Admits Getting in Shape Made Him "More Sexual''

25 August 2016 12:38 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Despite all the obvious health factors and the fact that we can literally see all the benefits John Krasinski has gained from getting ripped for his role in 13 Hours, the actor admits that some of the most positive changes he's experienced happen behind closed doors. And by that we mean his sex life. Yes, the 36-year-old actor, who is married to Emily Blunt, wasn't afraid to open up about his mojo during his interview for the September issue of Elle magazine.

'The Hollars' Review: All-Star Cast Props Up Indie Grief Drama

25 August 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Krasinski, as actor and director, tackles the most clichéd genre in the movie business — the dysfunctional family dramedy. The big difference is he pulls it off with uncommon humor and compassion. The plot from screenwriter Jim Strouse (Grace Is Gone) spins this way: John Hollar (Krasinski), a graphic novelist living in Manhattan with his pregnant, pet-clothing designer girlfriend Becca (Anna Kendrick), gets a disturbing call from home. The emergency involves his mother, Sally (Margo Martindale), who has suffered a seizure while curling her hair. In the hospital, Dr. Fong »

[Watch] John Krasinski, James Corden Hilariously Parody ‘Pulp Fiction’

25 August 2016 11:51 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta playing “Pulp Fiction’s” gun-toting gangsters Jules and Vincent.

But according to a new mockumentary, the roles originally went to James Corden and John Krasinski. Unfortunately, the duo were cut because they kept confusing their lines with lyrics from Coolio’s “Gansters Paradise.”

In addition to “Pulp Fiction,” Corden and Krasinski were also dropped from “Gone With the Wind,” “A Few Good Men,” and the recent “Into the Woods” (especially painful for Krasinski, as he was replaced by wife Emily Blunt).

Check outThe Late Late Show” sketch below (Corden and Krasinski oddly Both sport long Vincent Vega wigs, but that’s neither here nor there).

Of course, in real life, neither has any trouble landing roles.

In addition to “The Late Late Show,” Corden recently hosted the Tonys.

John Krasinski, whose movie The Hollars opens tomorrow, stopped by James Corden’s The Late Late Show so the two men could reveal they’ve been acting together in movies since 1939. That’s when they were cast in the lead roles in Gone With the Wind. As luck would have it, they were fired from Gwtw – or, Gone With Three Hours Of My Life, as Corden calls it.
