The hit animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 ended the first month of 2016 on a high note at the box office, taking in $48 million in its opening weekend. In the first frame of February, this adventure will face three new movies, Universal's Hail, Caesar!, Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Lionsgate's The Choice. As expected, none of these new releases could beat Kung Fu Panda 3, which won for a second weekend in a row with an estimated $21 million.
The animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 currently has a solid 80% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it opened in 3,955 theaters, which will still make it the widest release in theaters this weekend, by a long-shot. Kung Fu Panda 3 marks the return of one of the most successful animated franchises in the world, with its biggest comedy adventure yet. When Po's (Jack Black) long-lost panda father (Bryan Cranston) suddenly reappears, »
George Clooney has been in Hollywood long enough for people to know he's no dummy - but he sure plays great ones in movies for the Coen Brothers. The actor's latest is the dimwitted movie star Baird Whitlock in the showbiz satire Hail, Caesar, opposite a slew of A-listers: Channing Tatum, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill and Tilda Swinton. Whitlock is, in Clooney's words, "a blazing idiot." "There's no bulb at all," Clooney tells People of the character being less-than-bright. "That's how un-bright these bulbs are. I've never played a character with any integrity or any intelligence in any »

This one stars George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Jonah Hill, and Frances McDormand.

We also have the romantic drama .The Choice. from author Nicholas Sparks (.The Notebook,. .Message in a Bottle,. .Dear John.)! This one has Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer, Tom Welling, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Grace.
So which one is my pick of the week? Take a look at my reviews of "Hail, Caesar!" and "The Choice" as seen on The Filipino Channel's "Balitang America!"
The studio outbid rivals in acquiring an untitled pitch for the project, based on an original idea from Michael Bacall and Gordon-Levitt. Bacall will write the screenplay.
Gordon-Levitt most recently starred in “The Night Before” and will be seen in May in Open Road’s “Snowden,” directed by Oliver Stone. He’s developing “Fraggle Rock” at New Regency and “In Sight” at Universal, »

Hail, Caesar!, the latest picture from celebrated team of brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, proved amusing for the majority of film’s top critics. The list of stars in Hail, Caesar! seems endless, with George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin, Jonah Hill and others throwing themselves into the farcical flick that pays homage […]

Everyone’s raving about Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Revenant” performance being a masterclass in acting, but we say look no further than Jonah Hill! The “Hail, Caesar” actor stopped by “The Tonight Show” on Thursday and was quickly forced to flex those Academy Award-nominated acting chops with host Jimmy Fallon. The game, aptly called “Emotional Interview,” had Hill jumping from one emotion to the next. With the ding of a bell, he and Fallon went from condescending (hilarious) to blessed to be alive (even funnier) to... allergic to words with the letter “e” in it? It’s as impossible as it sounds! How would you fare with the goofy acting games? Check out the spot for a quick laugh below. Inspired by this post? Check out our audition listings! »
Hail, Caesar!, 2016.
Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Frances McDormand, Jonah Hill, Max Baker, Heather Goldenhersh, Veronica Osorio, Clancy Brown, Wayne Knight, Fisher Stevens, Robert Picardo, Christopher Lambert, Natasha Bassett, Alex Karpovsky, John Bluthal, and Alison Pill.
A Hollywood fixer in the 1950s works to keep the studio’s stars in line.
“It’s either going to work or it isn’t” – George Clooney in some interview I once read online that I can’t find anymore discussing the production of Hail, Caesar!.
Producers, writers and directors Joel and Ethan Coen have a rich history of tackling different genres, in turn making for a broad range of films; you’ve got classic characters like The Dude in the freewheeling stoner comedy The Big Lebowski, symbolism permeating the experience of more »

Chicago – Writer/directors Joel and Ethan Coen love the movies, and that love is magnificently played out in “Hail, Caesar!” As they riff on religion, geopolitics and 1950s morality, while wonderfully celebrating and spoofing an era in movies that will never be again, the Coens abide and deliver.
This film is a celebration, couched in references to other studio-era stars, the communist scare of McCarthyism (the Coens do it better than the film “Trumbo,” which was directly about that witch hunt), and the odd personalities that people once had, as celebrity culture was something still being invented. Josh Brolin is in the middle of the madness, as a over-scheduled studio head whose days spent as a “fixer” are hilarious as they are defining. The film works on all levels – as comedy, social commentary and allegory – but it never is pretentious, and prefers a light touch over any other type of narrative. »

“Hail, Caesar!” conquered $543,000 from 1,815 theaters screening previews of the George Clooney movie on Thursday night. The Coen Brothers film, boasting a stellar cast including Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes and Jonah Hill, had a budget of $22 million and was tracking in the low teens heading into the weekend. It’s the best reviewed new release, with a 78 percent “fresh” approval rating from critics counted on Rotten Tomatoes. “Hail, Caesar!” chronicles the chaos that arises at a movie studio in the Golden Age of Hollywood after the town’s biggest star (Clooney) is kidnapped during a major production. »

Sure, sure, Jimmy Fallon and Jonah Hill pull an Oprah and give everybody in the audience a panda, but that's not the most important takeaway here. After watching this and seeing all the amazing Jonah faces that are possible, it should be seen as a travesty that the only Jonah Hill apps available in the App Store are the Get Him to the Greek and Superbad ones. Does this mean Jonah should fix that and think about making his very own Jonoji app? Probably. At least that way he (or you) could regularly share really expressive faces for really special scenarios.When your Bff Leo tells you to close your eyes and imagine how big the Academy Award for Best Actor is Irl, for example: Or when you rewatch that underrated bear bit you did with Channing Tatum at the Golden Globes: When someone says maybe Leo won't win that Oscar, »

Even one of Hollywood’s leading men is known to have a bad audition every now and then. Channing Tatum revealed his worst audition experience on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last night. “That was ‘Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift,’ ” Tatum said. “I wanted to go to Tokyo very badly. I wanted to drift Tokyo.” The actor admitted he gave up before the audition had even finished. “I stopped in the middle of the audition and I was like, ‘I think we are done, right?’ This is just terrible,” he said, laughing. But the actor did something right as he’s currently starring in the new Joel and Ethan Coen comedy, “Hail, Caesar!,” out in theaters Feb. 5. The film also stars George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, and Jonah Hill. Watch Tatum explain his terrible audition below! Want to see famous actors audition for their best known roles?

“Hail, Caesar!,” the Coen Brother’s genre-busting new comedy crime caper set in 1950s Hollywood, features a terrific cast that includes George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Channing Tatum, Alden Ehrenreich, Jonah Hill, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson, and Frances McDormand. It’s a wildly entertaining tale populated by fascinating characters about a day in the life of […]

At 26, Alden Ehrenreich is in an enviable, though peculiar position. A young actor who's worked with Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen and Warren Beatty, he's already built up an impressive résumé — although too often, he's done fine work in movies nobody saw (Coppola's sibling drama Tetro, the supernatural Ya romance Beautiful Creatures) or been relegated to the margins of good movies (Blue Jasmine). So perhaps it's fitting that, at last, his coming-out occurs in a movie filled with much bigger stars that requires this charming, nuanced performer to play the »
The Coen brothers are some of Hollywood’s, nay, the world’s most important directors. Since they entered the scene in 1984 with Blood Simple they’ve rightfully found huge success with their brand of offbeat stories and neurotic characters. Like Woody Allen before them, they’ve tried their hand at a variety of genres, yet kept their voice consistent throughout. They also have the rare distinguishment of appealing to the art-house crowds, while also finding commercial success in Hollywood and abroad. Like Allen, every so often they have a “pallet cleanser” project in between some of their “high-brow” fare that just doesn’t congeal the way it ought to. Hail, Caesar! falls into that latter category.
I did my best to go into this with an open mind. It was the Coen Brothers after all, and the trailers did their job well in alerting us to just how many Big »

Movie: Hail, Caesar! Directors: Joel and Ethan Coen Starring: Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill and Frances McDormand Passionately and dedicatingly showcasing the injustices of society through the perspective of someone with a troubled and difficult life in films can be a captivating and alluring experience for both the filmmakers and the audience. Academy Award-winning writers-directors Joel and Ethan Coen have rightfully garnered acclaim and box office success throughout their careers for their insightful explorations into the struggles people regularly face, often as the result of societal injustices. Unfortunately, the filmmaking brothers ultimately failed to recapture their past glory in their upcoming [ Read More ]

Just about every other year, more or less like clockwork, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen unleash another film on audiences across the world. Fans of their work will probably be delighted by Hail, Caesar!, which opens this weekend and really resembles some of the most overtly comedic work from the Coens. It’s got an A list cast and an Old Hollywood setting, which will make some folks assume this is a prestige picture. In reality though, this is more of a romp and an example of the filmmaking brothers just having a grand old time. It didn’t thrill me like it will thrill others, but I suspect this won’t be another big Oscar player of theirs, regardless. The film is a look at the day in the life of a Hollywood fixer. Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) works at a big studio in the early 1950’s, making sure »

Have any American filmmakers working today created as many memorable characters as Joel and Ethan Coen? Wes Anderson’s sometimes come second to the set design, David Lynch’s are a little too inscrutable, and Terrence Malick’s are mostly there for the twirling. But in their every movie, even lesser ones (and you could make an argument that there are no lesser Coen movies), the duo come up with indelible creations who are sometimes comic, sometimes terrifying, often both, and who are very, very difficult to forget. “Hail, Caesar!,” which opens this week (read our review here), looks to deliver on that front. The filmmakers have assembled their most glittering cast to date, which includes both returning collaborators like George Clooney, Frances McDormand, Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin and Tilda Swinton, and new recruits like Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ralph Fiennes and Alden Ehrenreich, all playing various figures across the golden age of Hollywood. »
