By now, we’re all well-aware that Zac Efron has a penchant for taking his shirt off—he’s gone shirtless in a Nicholas Sparks romance, in a Seth Rogen comedy, even in Disney Channel Original Movies. But now he’s taking it off for… a show with Bear Grylls?
Famous survivalist Bear Grylls lured in some famous friends, including Ben Stiller and Channing Tatum, to go on remote adventures with him for new NBC reality show Running Wild. For Zac Efron’s episode, the two ventured into the Catskill Mountains of New York to repel down cliffs and jump out of helicopters—shirtless, »

The hits have been smaller, but so have the flops.
The summer box office is down 20%, but most of the films that have hit theaters over the last three months have a good chance of recouping their production budgets while still in theaters.
“We really haven’t had an out and out misfire yet,” said Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations.
There’s been nary an “After Earth,” a “White House Down” or “The Lone Ranger” to harsh Hollywood’s mellow this summer. To say nothing of “R.I.P.D,” the D.O.A. science-fiction comedy that debuted nearly a year ago to the day, recouping only $78 million of its $130 million production costs plus whatever else it took to market this “Ghostbusters” retread.

Channing Tatum and ‘22 Jump Street‘ just snagged a combined Four Teen Choice Awards nominations! The show airs August 10th at 8/7c on Fox, but you can Click Here to vote for Chan, Jonah Hill and 22 Jump Street in the categories of: Choice Summer Movie Star, Choice Summer Movie, Choice Movie Hissy Fit and Choice Movie Chemistry!
From a wild romance with Michelle Rodriguez to a crazy stunt in the wild! Zac Efron, who never seems to run out of opportunities to show off his well-toned chest, appears in Monday's series premiere of Running Wild with Bear Grylls to go rappelling, among other things, with the famed adventurer and TV host. "We reached out to him and he kindly said he was a fan of the show and that he was in 120 percent," Grylls tells People. "He asked for the biggest, baddest adventure and it was an honor to oblige." Grylls, 40, said he chose an area of »

The chart updates continue. I've been thinking a lot about Foxcatcher and Love is Strange and whether or not Sony Pictures Classics will have the guts to campaign all four of those male leads as leads. Essentially they'd be asking for 80% of the category which would be extremely ballsy (no pun intended with four sets of them) but also honest. For these July updates I'm fantasizing that they will.
But the funny thing is: Best Actor is enormously crowded without any of that acclaimed quartet. Playing a real life character won't even get you very far because most lead actors are doing just that, thereby dulling its time-tested competitive advantage. I count at least 10 possibly major contenders this year in biographical roles: Cumberbatch, »

The franchise that launched Channing Tatum’s career limps its way to Las Vegas in “Step Up All In,” where characters with bum knees and broken hearts compete for a shot at a three-year casino dance contract. With even less plot than in previous installments to get in the way of its inventive 3D dance scenes, this fifth pic delivers on spectacle — especially in its nine-minute, flame-throwing Caesars Palace finale — but lacks in chemistry, trying to pair the leads of the second and fourth films after their co-stars dumped them. Although the series’ box office has been slipping, this “all in” reunion (minus Tatum) could reverse the trend ever so slightly.
By this point, the characters have reached an age where dancing for fun doesn’t cut it, so they must find a way to make a living in the famously brutal field, whose humiliating auditions and frequent rejections make »

Cameron Diaz and Jimmy Fallon were up to their usual crazy antics on "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday, facing off in a race in inflatable kayaks.The rules were simple: each competitor would paddle out of Studio 6-b through a "waterfall." From there, they'd encounter a "cranky old fisherman" in the hallway, as well as boulders and "salmon swimming upstream." Other hazards included two Elton John impersonators: one singing "the most annoying part" of "Crocodile Rock" and another named "Benny and the Jetski."Before they took off, Fallon joked, "Cameron and I have always been pretty serious athletic rivals."The "Sex Tape" star zoomed away from the starting post, leaving the late night host to abandon his kayak and resort to throwing salmon instead. Check out the crazy clip above to see these two in action!This isn't the first time Cameron and Jimmy have teamed up for a fun segment. »

London — Entertainment One is well-placed to retain its position as the U.K.’s top independent distributor after a strong first half of the year, and a muscular slate for the remaining months. But, as Alex Hamilton, managing director, eOne Films U.K., tells Variety, the company has aspirations to be considered on a par with the Hollywood majors.
EOne has been the top indie in the U.K. for three of the past four years, and last year finished ahead of two studios, Sony and Paramount, with its box office totaling more than £100 million ($171 million) for the first time.

Suggesting that multiple encores might be overdoing it, the blandly titled and assembled Step Up: All In is the fifth film in the street dance-powered series, the third in 3D — and its flattest use of the format yet — and also the third without the series’ only true star, Channing Tatum, whose combination of charisma and killer moves is again sorely missed. Nevermind the fact that this directorial debut from Trish Sie, a music video director and former competitive ballroom dancer, reunites stars from the four previous entries to try and compensate for that loss.

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.
I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »

2014 has been a pretty swell year for blockbuster movies so far: The Lego Movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Edge of Tomorrow, Godzilla and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes all pretty much lived up to the hype, but as great as these movies are, the jam-packed 2015 blockbuster schedule has the potential to blow them totally out of the water.
With an absurdly high number of majorly-anticipated films due for release, 2015 appears to be the biggest year ever for tentpole blockbusters, with long-awaited sequels and reboots finally hitting our screens, along with plenty of enticing original projects.
Because looking into the crystal ball is always fun, we’re going to look ahead and throw out some predictions for some of next year’s biggest movies, primarily pertaining to box office and critical success, but we’ll also take a few guesses at some plot points as well.

Century City, Calif. — For Guillermo Del Toro to get involved with a new filmmaker, to hop onto a project to produce when it will take him away from his family, away from his life, it goes without saying, it has to be worth it. And when animator Jorge R. Gutierrez came to him with "The Book of Life," an animated feature set for release by 20th Century Fox in October, it checked off a lot of boxes for the "Pacific Rim" director. "I try, as a producer, to specialize in introducing first-time directors because I think it's important to introduce new voices into genre," Del Toro explained to a small audience on the Fox lot Monday morning prior to a footage presentation. "But I need to see something that I have a kinship with, first of all. Second, I need see something that is worth protecting, that is very fragile, »

Just yesterday I was doing a news update on Guillermo del Toro’s potentially upcoming Haunted Mansion and found myself marveling at the amount of projects he has in the pipeline, either as a director or producer. And, as I was listing them off, I totally forgot to include The Book of Life. That won’t be a problem now since I just got back from a footage presentation (along with a Q&A with del Toro and director Jorge Gutierrez) on the Fox Lot. This movie is now on my radar in a major way. Normally I’m not into footage presentations but this one was far enough ahead of release to get behind. It was also largely fantastic, priming me for the full experience in October. The Book Of Life revolves around three childhood friends—Manolo (Diego Luna), Maria (Zoe Saldana), and Joaquin (Channing Tatum)—who find themselves »

Giving up smoking is like going on an emotional roller-coaster of pain, hatred, and despair, underpinned by only the smallest inkling of “I am doing the right thing”.
