'Kung Fu Panda 3' Takes the Weekend Box Office with $41M

31 January 2016 11:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While January isn't typically a big month for box office blockbusters, there can be the occasional movie that opens big. Two weeks ago, Ride Along 2 breathed some life into the new year with a respectable $35.2 million opening frame, but last weekend, it dropped a whopping 64.7% and slipped from first to third place, with the holdover The Revenant taking the top spot in its fifth week in theaters. This weekend is shaping up to be the biggest frame of the new year so far, with three heavily-promoted new releases, Kung Fu Panda 3, Fifty Shades of Black and The Finest Hours. Box Office Mojo is reporting that Kung Fu Panda 3 took the top spot at the box office with $41 million.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is expected to easily take the top spot with a projected $48 million, which isn't terribly surprising given this franchise's pedigree of critical acclaim and box office success. »

Movie Review – Fifty Shades of Black (2016)

31 January 2016 9:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fifty Shades of Black, 2016.

Directed by Michael Tiddes.

Starring Marlon Wayans, Kali Hawk, Affion Crockett, Jane Seymour, Florence Henderson, Jenny Zigrino, Fred Willard, and Mike Epps.

Synopsis:

An inexperienced college student meets a wealthy businessman whose sexual practices put a strain on their relationship.

Normally, whenever I’m about to watch a modern-day Marlon Wayans comedy (I use that term loosely as to not insult actual comedies) I am mentally crying inside, trying to prepare myself for the next 90 minutes that will inexplicably feel as long as some epic Christopher Nolan movie. This time though, I had some hope coming in. After all, this time around it is Fifty Shades of Grey being parodied and roasted; a movie so unintentionally hilarious and plagued with both despicable and idiotic characters, it feels as if the spoof material would write itself.

The answer to that inquiry is both yes and no, as »

Fifty Shades Of Black Review

30 January 2016 8:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It astounds me that so many critics can vehemently spit venom at Kevin Smith, proclaiming he only makes movies for himself, yet that same scrutiny seems to avoid a borderline selfish filmmaker like Marlon Wayans. Given the right script and role, Wayans is a funny, talented performer. That I won’t argue. Yet these flavor-of-the-week spoofs he constantly churns out sport the same, unfunny, low-brow sense of humor every single time. These are jokes that make Wayans and his writing buddy Rick Alvarez laugh like pre-pubescent boys – or maybe the jokes were written by pre-pubescent boys, and they just make Wayans and Alvarez laugh. Either way, Fifty Shades Of Black is fifty despicable shades too many. Shocker, right?

Wayans stars as Christian Black, a wealthy “bidness” man who made his money like any other successful entrepreneur – by learning the coke trade and sucking a few dicks! (Yup, strap in.) It »

Film Review: ‘Fifty Shades of Black’

28 January 2016 11:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At a minimum, a parody should be funnier than the film it’s sending up, but “Fifty Shades of Black,” a quick-and-dirty riff on last year’s S&M romance “Fifty Shades of Grey,” falls a laugh or two short of even that low standard. After wringing every last joke out of the “Paranormal Activity” movies with “A Haunted House” and its sequel, co-writer/star Marlon Wayans, co-writer Rick Alvarez and director Michael Tiddes handcuff themselves to the latest pop-culture phenomenon, but don’t have the requisite discipline for the material. It wouldn’t take much to tip the brittle kink of E.L. James’ fantasy into the realm of comedy — the movie itself did it occasionally, if not always intentionally — but the vulgar bigness of Wayans’ style blows right past deadpan. Nevertheless, though this dire outing won’t win Wayans any new fans, there’s still an audience eager to »

Marlon Wayans, Kali Hawk & 'Fifty Shades of Black' Director Talk Marlon's Magic Mike Scene at Hollywood Premiere

28 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

In Fifty Shades Of Black, Marlon Wayans doesn't only parody the risqué novel turned movie, but Magic Mike also gets the spoof treatment with Marlon Wayans stripping down to a g-string. Wayans co-star Kali Hawk and director Michael Tiddes (A Haunted House) reveal the star wasn't thrilled to take it all off, but Wayans is telling us a different story. Watch the hilarious interview where Wayans offers to show us his "johnson" to prove he's not a "prude."

‘Fifty Shades of Black’s’ Marlon Wayans on Parody Films: ‘There’s a Science to It’

27 January 2016 3:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To veteran comedian and parody filmmaker Marlon Wayans — who stars in Open Road’s “Fifty Shades of Black” — the ingredients of a successful parody are a great story, characters with intentions, funny dynamics and infusions of pop culture.

“It has to be organic. There’s a science to it, but you just have to be smart about your approach,” Wayans told Variety on Tuesday at the Los Angeles premiere of “Fifty Shades of Black,” a parody film he also co-wrote and produced.

The film, a spoof on “Fifty Shades of Grey,” follows the developing relationship of shy, inexperienced college student Hannah  (Kali Hawk) and shady businessman Christian Black (Wayans).

Adding to the discussion of developing well-received parodies, “Fifty Shades of Black” co-writer and producer Rick Alvarez said that it’s important that audiences are ready to find the humor in whatever subject is being spoofed.

Watch New 'Fifty Shades of Black' Clip + Poster

25 January 2016 7:19 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

After spoofing the found footage horror movie with his "Haunted House" pair of films, Marlon Wayans has done the same with erotic romance drama, "Fifty Shades of Black" (you just had to know he'd use that as the title). But Wayans doesn't necessarily like the term "spoof," as he has said repeatedly. It's more of what he calls a "humorous homage" to the original film, which he hopes both fans of his, as well as fans of "50 Shades of Grey" will appreciate. Im Global financed the film (they got behind the "Haunted House" movies as well), which is set for release next year. Kali Hawk co-stars. Wayans stars, as well as produces, and »
