‘American Hustle,’ ‘Gravity’: AFI Awards 2013 - big-studio movies rule once again (photo: Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper in ‘American Hustle’) The American Film Institute has released AFI Awards list featuring the Top Ten Movies of 2013. As usual, the AFI Awards mostly focus on mainstream, popular fare from the big studios; in fact, they’re a sort of more upscale, Oscar-friendlier People’s Choice Awards, i.e., no Twilight, no The Fast and The Furious, no Adam Sandler, scattered super-hero movies, mostly bypassing Harry Potter. (You’ll see why they’re so big-studio-friendly once you scroll down a bit to check out the list of this year’s AFI Awards’ jury members.) Six of the AFI’s Top Ten 2013 movies come courtesy of the Hollywood majors: American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Her, Saving Mr. Banks, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Additionally, 12 Years a Slave was released by Fox Searchlight Pictures, »

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is still smoldering at the box office. Everyone has been giving the film praise and if, for some reason, you’re still on the fence, perhaps the newly-cut “Atlas” trailer for the film will change your mind. The trailer gets its name from Coldplay’s song for the film (an amazing song, by the way). Take a look at the trailer below the post and see what you think! “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katinss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, the two tributes that go on to change Panem forever. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned [ Read More ]

Hey ‘SNL,’ where are those good old-fashioned values? They were nowhere to be found on the ‘Weekend Update’ segment of the show’s Dec. 7 episode, when a character played by Taran Killam did not hesitate to trudge up Brian’s passing.
On the show’s “Weekend Update” on Dec. 7, cast member Taran Killam played Jebidiah Atkinson, an 1860s newspaper critic, who was brought on the show to review some classic Christmas specials.

Brian was roped into the segment during Jebidiah’s review of A Charlie Brown Christmas. After skewering Charlie Brown himself (“There’s a pube on your forehead!”), Jebidiah then moved on to Snoopy. “Don’t even get me started on Snoopy, »

In Anchorman, Paul Rudd was part of the Channel 4 news team that rallied around Ron Burgundy at his moment of crisis. On Saturday, the gang returned the favor as Rudd hosted Saturday Night Live for the third time. He didn’t necessarily need it, but you don’t think Anchorman 2 was going to let this promotional opportunity pass by, did you? Will Ferrell, David Koechner, and Steve Carell had Rudd’s back for a little “Afternoon Delight” sing-off against One Direction. Combined with a cold-open that featured Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen, it quickly appeared as if Rudd »

NBC’s live remake of ‘The Sound Of Music’ was the butt of a ton of jokes after it aired on Dec. 5. So of course ‘Saturday Night Live’ had to take their shots too, and they did on Dec. 7 with a skit featuring one of their most famous former cast members. Read on to watch!
Carrie Underwood‘s The Sound of Music aired on the same channel as Saturday Night Live, but that didn’t stop the comedy show from making fun of it on Dec. 7. With the help of former cast mate Kristen Wiig and one of her most famous characters, SNL pulled off a hilarious spoof of the ill-fated live remake.

Hey, did you know that Anchorman 2 is coming soon to a theater near you? It would be kind of strange if you didn't, considering how the movie's full-court-press marketing has invaded every facet of our lives. (Last night, Ron Burgundy co-hosted one of my dreams and I wasn't even surprised.) The original film germinated from a partnership between SNL writer Adam McKay and his muse, Will Ferrell, so it was inevitable that the show would aid in the sequel's ongoing media blitz. Since Ferrell was perhaps a little too busy this week to host, we instead got Paul Rudd.I never thought I'd say this, but Rudd failed to top the recent Josh Hutcherson episode of SNL. Rudd's a funny guy. He's in a lot of funny movies. He's also easy on the eyes and seems like the kind of guy every dude wishes was his best friend. Because »

The ‘Anchorman’ actor may have been the host of the Dec. 7 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but it was clear that everyone was there to see 1D. And the boys killed it, appearing in the opening monologue And a later skit!
The One Direction guys’ great senses of humor have been well-documented, so we were hoping they’d get a chance to flex their comedic muscles as the musical guest on the Dec. 7 episode of Saturday Night Live. And we were not disappointed.
Right away, host Paul Rudd joked that he wasn’t worried about being overshadowed by the musical guest. “Tonight is the Paul Rudd show,” he stated. On cue, the crowd then cheered wildly as Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik strode onto the stage behind Paul.

After hitting a season low among adults 18-49 (2.0) in the people meter markets and posting the second lowest result of the season in the metered markets households with its most recent original hosted by Josh Hutcherson, Saturday Night Live rebounded last night. The show hosted by Paul Rudd, with musical guest One Direction and a ton of unannounced guest stars, averaged a 4.9/12 in metered market households, up 20% vs. the last original and matching SNL‘s season high logged by the shows hosted by Lady Gaga and Kerry Washington.

‘Catching Fire’ vs. ‘Frozen’: Weekend box office early estimates (photo: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) It’s gonna be a battle to the death between water and fire at the domestic box office. Sorry, couldn’t resist the cheesy lead, but … The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen will be vying for the top spot at the North American box office this weekend, December 6-8, 2013. New entry Out of the Furnace, despite the presence of The Dark Knight‘s Christian Bale, is no competition, after opening to chilly per-theater figures last week. More on Out of the Furnace in a follow-up post. Currently at 4,163 locations, Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, was the top movie on Friday, grossing $7.5 million according to Nikki Finke‘s early, rough estimates. Despite 3D surcharges, the fact that it’s a more recent release, »

What do teen movie stars think of a movie made for teens? KidsPickFlicks.com's Movie Star Movie Critics Joel Courtney (Super 8) and Katherine McNamara (Contest) think the odds are in your favor that you will really enjoy The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
"The second part to the epic Hunger Games series certainly does not disappoint. In the aftermath of Katniss and Peeta's victory, the districts have begun to revolt against the Capitol, and President Snow needs to control them the only way he know how, by taking away their hope: Katniss Everdeen. Snow breaks every rule in the book just to get that hope from District 12 in his grasp once more. Catching Fire has a steady flow of action and romance - rivaling the first film in its intensity. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, and Donald Sutherland lead the movie with riveting and powerful performances each in their own right. »

The latest installment of the franchise created from Suzanne Collins's young adult dystopian trilogy, "The Hunger Games, Catching Fire" is even more gut-wrenching, sleeker with raw emotions and engrossing than its predecessor, which released in 2012.
Yet, it lacks the elements to sustain itself as an appealing entertainer.
The film begins on a note of suspense, with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) killing a man, obviously by mistake and she redeems herself with, "I did what I did, to survive." This lays the foundation of the. »

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, Paula Malcomson, Willow Shields, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Lynn Cohen, Meta Golding, Amanda Plummer and Jeffrey Wright.
Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem.
When The Hunger Games opened up last year it was met with many positive reviews and went on to make almost $700 million worldwide. I was a little skeptical in seeing it because we were almost done with the Twilight franchise and it looked like The Hunger Games was trying to capitalize on its success. Thankfully, the film turned out to be quite good - it had it's problems but was leagues better than any of the Twilight films. »

‘Catching Fire’ box office: To surpass Iron Man 3 in North America? (photo: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Thanksgiving was celebrated this past week in the United States. Although the American economy remains in a seemingly never-ending rut, Lionsgate has much to be thankful for, financially speaking: on the weekend of November 29-December 1, 2013, Francis Lawrence’s $110-130 million-budgeted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, added another $74.5 million from 4,163 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even if Lionsgate’s estimates are (once again) off by a couple of percentage points, that’s a remarkable hold for a sequel. In fact, Catching Fire was down only 53% compared to its first weekend, which included $25+ million from Thursday night and Friday midnight screenings. And let’s not forget that the Hunger Games sequel blew off »

Lionsgate and Disney have a lot to be thankful for over this long weekend, as "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and "Frozen" are breaking holiday records at the box office.

In the midst of endless bickering over all the various things movie franchises are doing completely wrong, the Hunger Games franchise appears to be doing just about everything right. The popularity and staying power of the series has been confirmed by the overwhelming success of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which has been almost unanimously embraced by critics and is currently setting records at the box office.
It’s easy to get disoriented by the shameless merchandising and ubiquitous marketing of the movies and lose sight of the actual quality of the films themselves. Yes, it’s ridiculous (intentionally so?) that makeup companies are trying to appeal to people who dig the look of the gluttonous Capitol residents. Yes, there’s something weird about a popular movie purportedly geared towards young people in which teenagers kill each other for their ancestors’ punishment and for the detached amusement of the 1%.
