Selena Gomez showed off a fuller figure during a vacation break in Mexico and drew a horde of fat shamers after she posted photos in a sexy swimsuit. She may have been slightly rounder, but really, fat shaming? Gomez has been working pretty intensely on a new movie “In Dubious Battle,” with her “Spring Breakers” co-star James Franco. Vincent D’Onofrio, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Danny McBride also appear in the adaptation of John Steinbeck’s Depression era novel by the same name. ...Read More »
DreamWorks Animation may have recently announced plans to scale back from the admittedly ambitious three-films-per-year business model, but that doesn’t negate the staying power of the studio’s beloved IP moving forward. As a matter of fact, the company today announced that it has reshuffled the release date for upcoming threequel Kung Fu Panda 3, meaning that Po’s latest adventure will hit cinema screens on January 29, 2016, as opposed to March 18.
Aside from How To Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda remains as one of DreamWorks’ most lucrative franchises, and considering that the previous two films have pulled in a staggering $1.3 billion between them, all eyes are on the third installment to deliver a sure-fire hit. And truth be told, the studio is in need of a financial boon, with Rise of the Guardians, Turbo and Mr. Peabody and Sherman failing to kickstart new franchises for the company in recent years. »

DreamWorks Animation has changed the Kung Fu Panda 3 released date from March 18, 2016 to January 29, 2016. This will put the animated sequel up against the drama The Finest Hours starring Chris Pine, the Ya film The 5th Wave, and an untitled horror film from New Line Cinema. It wouldn’t shock me if Kung Fu Panda 3 ended up winning the weekend since the first two movies have raked in $1.3 billion worldwide. People love animals that know karate. DreamWorks Animation also needs a hit. The company has been sliding over the past few years (people have finally caught on that their films are largely lazy and forgettable), and Kung Fu Panda is a solid franchise for the studio. Jack Black will return as the voice of Po in the film, and the rest of the voice cast includes Gary Oldman, Dustin Hoffman, David Cross, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Yeoh, Mads Mikkelsen, Danny McBride, »

The only reason I'm writing about this is to let you know this isn't all that much of a story, though you are going to see it reported around the Internet as if it is. We all knew about the animated Angry Birds movie, which will be released by Sony on July 1, 2016, based on the mobile video game from Rovio. Now, in a report from Cineuropa (via The Playlist) they say the film carries a ?75 million production budget, accompanied by a marketing and distribution budget of approximately ?100 million. Carry the one, subtract two, throw it in a converter and that ends up being about $186 million U.S. dollars. I can hear you saying, "That's over $100 million more than Paramount and Nickelodeon spent on The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water and even more than the $135 million Dreamworks spent on Home," but hold on... just hooooooold on. Note the fact this »

Rovio Entertainment is betting big on its upcoming 3D CG-animated film adaptation of the smart phone game "Angry Birds". Cineuropa reports that the project will have a production budget of around Usd $80 million with a further $105 million for marketing and distribution.
Pekka Rantala, the CEO of Rovio, says: "You can accuse us of many things, but not of lack of courage. The film is getting very positive reactions from major retail and licensing partners, as well as from consumer focus groups, which will have a positive impact on licensing in the coming years. We expect some major announcements of partnerships."
Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Peter Dinklage, Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Cristela Alonzo, Jillian Bell, Danielle Brooks and Romeo Santos all star in the film which is currently targeting a May 20th 2016 release. »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Galifianakis and Wiig star as bumbling armoured car drivers who are able to pull off one of the biggest heists in Us history with the help of a conman (Owen Wilson).
Masterminds opens on August 7 in the Us and the UK.
Watch Digital Spy spotlight this year's biggest blockbusters below: »
Even though Jared Hess hasn’t made a movie in six years since 2009’s Gentleman Broncos, there’s still a small group of Napoleon Dynamite acolytes who love the indie director’s deadpan screwball comedy. And I can’t think of another comic more suited for that brand of comedy than Zach Galifianakis.
In Hess’s latest film Masterminds, Galifianakis is an armored car driver who manages to drive off with $17 million in cash, only to lose it to a pair of reckless, double-crossing criminals on a wild spending spree, forcing him to go on the run as well. Here’s the full synopsis, via Collider:
In this action comedy based on true events, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite; Nacho Libre), David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) discovers the true meaning of adventure far beyond his wildest dreams. He is an uncomplicated man stuck in a monotonous life. Day in and »

When movie studios lift real-life events as inspiration for feature films, particularly when it comes to a record-breaking heist, it often underpins a serious drama. But for Jared Hess’ upcoming comedy, a $20 million smash and grab — one which proved to be one of the biggest in America history — will serve as inspiration for the Zach Galifianakis-led Masterminds.
For the film, The Hangover fan favorite will step into the shoes of David Ghantt, a dim-witted Southerner who discovers more money than he knows what to do with after stealing the aforementioned sum from an armoured truck. Alongside Galifianakis for the romp is Bridesmaids‘ Kristen Wiig, who leads him astray and plants the devious idea in his head in the first place. Rounding out the cast are Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis.
Having broke onto the directing scene with Napoleon Dynamite back in 2004, Hess certainly made a considerable first impression, »

Until shortly before production, Masterminds was going by the name Loomis Fargo and if you watch the first trailer you’ll know why. You’ll also get a sense of why the name was changed, as the marketing plan here is definitely to play it broad, play it simple and keep the widest possible audience interested.
For a film from Jared Hess, who made his name with Napoleon Dynamite and also directed the determinedly idiosyncratic Gentleman Broncos, I do have to wonder if that’s an entirely inappropriate decision. Maybe this might have been better sold as an off-beat cult film in waiting.
That’s a fantastic cast, even if I do find Zach Galifianakis to be somewhat hit and miss. They’ve got so many great players they didn’t even feel the need to give us any Ken Marino, though he does get billing in the end cards. »

Arriving in Us cinemas this August, Masterminds is the new comedy from Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess. The film stars Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson, and it centres on a man who drives an armoured security vehicle for a living, regularly transporting millions of dollars around the place.
Must be quite tempting to rob the cash, right? That's certainly the plan, and the film takes things from there. It's been written by Emily Spivey, Jody Hill, Danny McBride, Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer, and the first trailer for Masterminds landed overnight. Here's a glimpse as to what to expect...
And here's the teaser poster...
Masterminds arrives in both the UK and the Us on Friday 7th August. It's apparently based on true events, too...

"Brace your boobies." There's plenty of slick heists, from Ocean's Eleven to Inside Man, but the story at the heart of Masterminds doesn't seem to be one of them. In the action comedy from Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), a robbery is planned by a ragtag team of dimwits including Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson, and somehow they get away with it. But that's just where the chaos seems to begin. It's hard to tell what's going on in this chaotic teaser trailer for the comedy, but Jason Sudeikis already seems like he will be the high point of this flick, with the low point being that terrible wig Galifianakis is wearing. Here's the teaser trailer for Jared Hess' Masterminds from YouTube: Masterminds is directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Gentlemen Broncos, Nacho Libre) and written by Danny McBride & Jody Hill ("Eastbound & Down") and Chris Bowman & Hubbel Palmer »

The pic’s ensemble already includes Franco, Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Danny McBride. Ambi Group is financing the film and producing with Rabbit Bandini Productions and That’s Hollywood Pictures Productions.
The original novel by John Steinbeck portrays the struggle between labor and capital in 1930s America as close to all-out warfare. Published in 1936, “In Dubious Battle” is considered Steinbeck’s first major work. Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck later continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man. A labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association is the backdrop against which Jim Nolan (Franco) becomes involved in the labor movement and rapidly matures as he »
