Box Office: Can 'Oculus' Producer Jason Blum Succeed Outside His Horror Comfort Zone?

14 April 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no surprise that the one-two punch atop this weekend's box office chart was the second weekend of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (with an estimated $41.4 million) and the debut of family cartoon "Rio 2" (estimated at $39.0 million), but the real drama lay in the fate of the No. 3 movie. That was horror film "Oculus," which rode a wave of positive buzz and even critical kudos to a third-place debut estimated at $12.0 million, enough to beat this weekend's other new wide release, Kevin Costner's sports-management dramedy "Draft Day" (No. 4 with an estimated $9.8 million).

Much of the credit for success of "Oculus" will go to producer Jason Blum (whether he deserves it or not), since Blum is by default the leading auteur in horror movies today, even though he doesn't write or direct them. As a producer, he's hit on a formula that turns micro-budgeted horror movies into profitable franchises, »

Lusty debuts by Divergent, Grand Budapest Hotel

13 April 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Kids and families flocked to The Lego Movie and the Captain America sequel while teenagers embraced Divergent and adults checked into The Grand Budapest Hotel last weekend.

All told it was a buoyant frame as nationwide takings improved by 6% to $18.25 million and six titles each earned more than $1 million.

Animated comedy The Lego Movie eased by 10% to $5.1 million in its second weekend, propelling its haul to $14.4 million, according to Rentrak.s estimates. The Village Roadshow Pictures/Warner Bros. co-production looks set to reach $28 million, if not $30 million, and the worldwide cume hit $US425 million.

Superhero adventure Captain America: The Winter Soldier grabbed $3.6 million despite falling by 40%, to elevate its 11-day total to $12.2 million. However the Marvel franchise isn.t tracking as strongly here as in the Us, where the film starring Chris Pine, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel J. Jackson has rung up $US159 million in 10 days.

Lindsay Lohan will appear on 'Watch What Happens Live'. Let's plan the games!

10 April 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

For a very specific demographic, the ultimate news was just announced: Lindsay Lohan will appear on Watch What Happens Live! The episode will air next Thursday, April 17, EW has confirmed.

“This one is a long time coming. We love Lindsay and plan to celebrate the s@%# out of her!” host/executive producer Andy Cohen told E!.

Fans of the show know this has the potential to be quite the memorable episode. Not only is the live program proudly booze-soaked (a tradition they will obviously (right?) forgo for the evening), but the program’s cheeky charm thrives on Cohen asking the guests just-this-side-of-inappropriate questions. »

Praise be to the holy trinity of Marvel: Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt. Are we supposed to believe that it's purely coincidence that the three hottest superheroes in the McU just happen to be named Chris? Please. Marvel needs to get their hands on more Chrises and transform them into some cut up, beefcake super studs.

Chiwetel Ejiofor Cast as the Next James Bond Villain?

4 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The gallery of James Bond villains is adding another Oscar nominee: Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The Wrap reports that the "12 Years a Slave" actor is in talks to join "Bond 24" as the main villain. Director Sam Mendes is returning to helm the movie after guiding "Skyfall" to critical acclaim and $1.1 billion at the box office worldwide.

Daniel Craig is set to reprise his role as Bond, with Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, and Ben Whishaw all returning as M, Moneypenny, and Q, respectively. Producers are still searching for a new Bond girl and a Scandinavian love interest for the dashing spy.

Since starring in "12 Years a Slave," Ejiofor has been busy; he recently wrapped "Z for Zachariah" opposite Chris Pine and Margot Robbie, and is set to appear in "Triple Nine" with Kate Winslet, Woody Harrelson, and Aaron Paul.

Production on "Bond 24" should begin this fall, with an unknown release date. »

Entertainment Geekly: 'The Raid 2' and the death of Hollywood action movies

3 April 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

Hollywood only makes action movies now. Hollywood doesn’t really make action movies anymore. Both of those statements can’t be true, and yet, they’re both basically accurate. It is very rare for Hollywood to release a major non-Oscar  bait motion picture that doesn’t feature at least one and usually fifteen sequences where our conventional definition of “action” happens. “Action”: Gunfights, swordfights, bow-and-arrow fights, car chases, car crashes, car chases that flip into crashes, »

Blum On Carnahan's "Stretch," "Jem" Movie

3 April 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Grey" and "Smokin Aces" director Joe Carnahan's controversial new drama "Stretch" was pulled from the release calendar a while back with many wondering when we will ever get to see it.

The story stars Patrick Wilson as a chauffeur whose new ride is a devious billionaire (Chris Pine). Their night together leads to increasingly dangerous encounters. Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, and Ray Liotta also star.

Universal had planned a wide release but essentially dropped the movie soon after scheduling it. The film's producer Jason Blum has now spoken about the release date incident and says there is a chance it could end up at Toronto this year. He tells Collider:

"What happened with it was that all of the movies that we make, we don't announce and date them wide until they're finished. We got ahead of ourselves with Stretch and dated the movie.

Producer Jason Blum Explains Why Joe Carnahan’s Stretch Lost Its Release Date and When We Might See the Movie

3 April 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

I was incredibly bummed when Joe Carnahan's Stretch was pulled from the calendar.  I'm a huge fan of the director (The Grey was my favorite film of 2012), and Stretch has a catchy premise: Patrick Wilson plays a chauffeur who picks up a difficult and devious billionaire, played in a cameo by Chris Pine.  As the night goes on, their interaction leads to increasingly dangerous encounters.  Jessica Alba, Brooklyn DeckerEd Helms, and Ray Liotta also appear in the film.  The movie was supposed to have a wide release, but Universal concluded it would be unwise to spend $20 million to $40 million to distribute the movie, so they dropped it. Yesterday, we spoke with producer Jason Blum for his new film, Oculus, and he also provided an update on the status of Stretch, and when we might finally see the film.  Hit the jump for more. Collider: It was so disappointing »

This Week on Stage: 'Aladdin' flies onto the Great White Way

22 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Disney can show you the world. Shining. Shimmering. Splendid. And given the mid-show standing ovation for “Friend Like Me” at every performance of Broadway’s Aladdin and the oohs and aahs of the young children who witness the literal magic carpet ride the show depicts, it’s safe to assume that Disney has its latest long-runner. (Now whether it can ever unseat The Lion King as the fourth longest-running show ever is another question.)

Famous Friends and Full House Round Out the Rebels Gala

21 March 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

At the second annual Rebels With a Cause gala on Thursday in La, there were plenty of amazing groups getting rebellious together. Isla Fisher and her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen, had fun with Jonah Hill; Pharrell Williams's wife was mildly overshadowed by his newest hat; and Chris Pine made his first postarrest appearance with friend Anna Kendrick. However, the most exciting duo was John Stamos and Bob Saget, who had another laughter-filled Full House reunion. Elsewhere in the TV realm, January Jones showed off a bold and sweet look that is the complete opposite of her TV persona Betty Draper's style. Though, with the premiere of Mad Men's final season less than a month away, we'll be seeing her in '60s mode again in no time. View Slideshow › »
