Second Red Band Trailer for 'Why Him?' Starring Cranston & Franco

15 November 2016 10:02 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"By Christmas morning, you're going to be calling me son, I'm going to be calling you dad." 20th Century Fox has revealed a second red band trailer for the new comedy Why Him?, about a father dealing with the totally insane boy that his charming daughter has chosen to marry. Bryan Cranston stars as the father, and James Franco stars as the boy - a tattoo-covered "internet billionaire", with Zoey Deutch playing the daughter. The rest of the cast includes Megan Mullally, Keegan-Michael Key, Griffin Gluck, Andrew Rannells, Casey Wilson and Zack Pearlman. Not so sure about this, seems a bit too goofy. I'm actually more interested in seeing Keegan-Michael Key as his butler more than pretty much anything else. Have fun. Here's the second red band trailer for John Hamburg's comedy Why Him?, direct from Fox's YouTube: You can still watch the first red band trailer for Why Him? »

Girl on the Train Beats Birth of a Nation at the Box Office with $24.6M

9 October 2016 1:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Three newcomers kicked off the month of October vying for the box office win, with Universal's harrowing thriller The Girl On the Train squaring off against Fox Searchlight's indie sensation Birth of a Nation and Lionsgate's family comedy Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life. We predicted earlier this week that The Girl On the Train would win with $24.5 million, which turned out to be quite the accurate prediction. The Girl On the Train ended up winning with an estimated take of $24.6 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that The Girl On the Train pulled in an impressive $7,844 per-screen average from 3,144 theaters, easily overtaking last weekend's winner, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which dropped to second place with $15 million, followed by Deepwater Horizon with $11.7 million, The Magnificent Seven with $9.1 million and Storks rounding out the top 5 with $8.4 million. The week's other two new releases didn't fare nearly as well as predicted, »

Film Review: ‘Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life’

7 October 2016 12:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As Francois Truffaut sagely noted, adolescence leaves pleasant memories only for adults who cannot remember. So it’s entirely possible that even the folks who made “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life” will be pleasantly surprised by the cross-generational appeal of their spirited comedy about a sixth-grader’s antiauthoritarian campaign of rule-breaking mischief. To be sure, every generation is entitled to its own revenge fantasy, and this particular wishdream — inspired by the series-spawning novel by James Patterson and Chris Tebbets — is aimed primarily at viewers who might not yet have a firm grasp on puberty. But “Middle School” also may resonate with older viewers who most certainly do remember adolescent angst.

Rafe Khatchadorian (Griffin Gluck), the protagonist of the piece, is a semi-introverted but fancifully imaginative youngster who, for reasons left teasingly unclear, already has been kicked out of two schools before his single mom (Lauren Graham) enrolls »

Movie Review: Tweens can do better than the cartoon garishness of Middle School

6 October 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Is there a subgenre as thankless as the live-action family comedy? Studio animation aimed at families, even when it’s second-tier, can often claim some level of technical artistry. But so many movies aimed at slightly older kids—too old to demand exclusively talking animals, too young to just go see whatever PG-13 movie parents would rather watch instead—seem to take their cues from the worst of animation and the most middling of sitcoms. This is the process by which the genuinely (and interestingly!) harrowing middle school years become Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life.

Based on the first in a series of middle-grade novels co-authored by sentient publishing industry James Patterson and nearly enough collaborators to qualify as a writing room, Middle School follows Rafe Khatchadorian (Griffin Gluck) as he starts at a new school. His creativity almost immediately chafes against the rule-obsessed Principal Dwight (Andy »

'Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life': Film Review

6 October 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Channeling the spirit of John Hughes and playing like a tween version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life delivers an easily digestible and amusing portrait of youthful hijinks that should well please its target audience. Based on the best-selling book series by James Patterson (does that man ever sleep?), the family-oriented film should prove modestly successful in its theatrical release before enjoying a long life in home video formats. The story centers on Rafe (Griffin Gluck), an artistic-minded kid who's forever doodling and drawing in his sketchbook and who, because

The Weekend Warrior 10/7/16: The Girl on a Train, Birth of a Nation, Middle School, Newtown

5 October 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

This Past Weekend:   

Another bad weekend where nothing really popped, which is bad news for a month at the box office where only Clint Eastwood’s Sully exceeded any expectations.  Tim Burton’s new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children came out just below my predictions with $29 million, but the Mark Wahlberg-Peter Berg disaster flick Deepwater Horizon was right around where I predicted with $20.2 million. The comedy Masterminds tanked with just $6.5 million for the weekend to end up in sixth place while Disney’s The Queen of Katwe did slightly better than predicted with $2.5 million.  

The first full weekend in October has a good deal of competition from the release of the video game Mafia III to the »

Will Girl on the Train Ride to the Top of the Fall Box Office?

4 October 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last weekend's winner Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children helped bring the box office out of the September doldrums with an opening weekend victory of $28.8 million, besting another high-profile new release, the true story adaptation Deepwater Horizon, which opened in second place with $20.2 million. The first weekend in October brings three new releases to challenge Miss Peregrine, Universal's The Girl On the Train, Fox Searchlight's The Birth Of a Nation and Lionsgate's Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life. We're predicting that, despite some middling reviews, The Girl On the Train will take the top spot with $24.3 million.

The Girl On the Train is based on the wildly popular debut novel by Paula Hawkins, which became a publishing sensation when it debuted in January 2015. While some movie adaptations can take years to get production started, Tate Taylor signed on to direct in May 2015, with the cast coming together »

Exclusive Clip: The Principal Totally Sucks in 'Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life'

4 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Few of us remember middle school as being the time of our lives, what with navigating friendships, difficult authority figures and that whole puberty thing. Even the most popular kids couldn't avoid that. So you may find the situation that quiet and creative Rafe Katchadorian (Griffin Gluck) is in totally sympathetic. In Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, Rafe and his buddies resent their new principal for his endless rule mongering around everything from what he finds offensive to...

Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life Trailer Sells Young You Dreams

10 September 2016 8:46 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Based on the book by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life is the next in the line of films featuring kids taking control of their world.

Rafe (Griffin Gluck) is heading into middle school, and he finds himself in the world of Principal Dwight (Andy Daly), who runs a tight ship, and has an overabundance of rules. Rafe and his friends put together a plan to break every rule Principal Dwight has, but he has to keep his plans, and rule-breaking, from his mom (Lauren Graham).

While this one looks like a lot of fun for younger audiences, its success probably rests on Daly’s shoulders, and he’s a great choice for the role. The “bad guy” in such a film can easily go too cartoony, and though Daly could probably aim for that if he wanted to, his work on things »

Second Trailer for Comedy 'Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life'

9 September 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Creativity has no place in this school." CBS Films has debuted a second full-length trailer for the movie Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, an adaptation of the bestselling book series of the same name. Young actor Griffin Gluck stars as Rafe Katchadorian, a boy with a "wild imagination" bored of middle school who decides to break every rule and see what happens, bringing his friends with him. The full cast includes Lauren Graham, Rob Riggle, Thomas Barbusca, Andy Daly, Adam Pally, and Efren Ramirez. This actually looks really fun, especially disregarding the rules and messing with expectations. I'm sure if I were younger I'd enjoy it even more, but still, it looks pretty good. "Rules aren't for everyone!" Here's the second trailer for Steve Carr's Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, on YouTube: You can also still watch the first official teaser trailer for Middle School here, »

It’s Ferris Bueller meets Home Alone as their battle with Principal Dwight explodes into chaos both real and imagined. But Dwight displays his own fiendish creativity, »

No talking, no laughing, no ball in the hallway, no... going to the bathroom?!

James Franco & Bryan Cranston Battle in First Trailer for 'Why Him?'

30 June 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Of all the guys his daughter could have chosen… Why Him? 20th Century Fox has debuted a trailer for the new comedy Why Him?, about a father dealing with the totally insane boy that his charming daughter has chosen to marry. Bryan Cranston stars as the father, and James Franco stars as the boy - a tattoo-covered "internet billionaire", with Zoey Deutch as his daughter. The full cast includes Megan Mullally, Keegan-Michael Key, Griffin Gluck, Andrew Rannells, Casey Wilson and Zack Pearlman. I get what they're going for with this, but some of the scenes in this are excruciatingly bad. That said, the battles between Cranson and Franco might be amusing.

If only we can go back in time and shake things up at school. Unfortunately, that’s not exactly possible but at least we can live vicariously through one such rebellious teenager.

Middle School tells the story of teenager Rafe Katchadroian (Griffin Gluck) who has a wild imagination and is forced to turn his school upside down, with the help of his best friend Leo (Thomas Barbusca), in an attempt to rebel against all the insufferable rules set by the school’s Principal, played by the hilarious Andy Daly.

Also starring Lauren Graham and Rob Riggle, this is one relatable movie we can all get behind!
