Playback Finishes Dead Last at the Box Office in 2012

28 December 2012 11:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The end of calendar year is always the start of the awards season for movie fans, with critics' top 10 lists rolling out and award nominations being handed out. However, there are a few distinct honors that no film wants to receive. Today, Project X was named as the most downloaded movie of 2012, while the Christian Slater flop Playback was named the lowest grossing movie of the year, earning just $264 at the box office. Yes, just two hundred sixty-four dollars.

Playback was released in just one theater back in March, earning a paltry $252, adding another $12 the following week for a total domestic tally of $264. Oddly enough, though, The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure fared even worse, in terms of per-screen average. Opening in 2,160 theaters this August, The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure earned an abysmal $443,901, for a per-screen average of $206. In case both Playback and The Oogieloves in the »

DVD Review - Project X (2012)

3 August 2012 1:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Project X, 2012.

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh.

Starring Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown, Nichole Bloom and Alexis Knapp.

Synopsis:

Three high school friends throw a party to build their popularity, but things soon escalate beyond their control.

Project X is one of the latest movies to try out the found footage gimmick. It worked once already this year with Chronicle and it also failed miserably this year with The Devil Inside. Does Project X join Chronicle or The Devil Inside in terms of entertainment?

In Project X we follow Thomas (Thomas Mann); it's his birthday and his best friend Costa (Oliver Cooper) plans on throwing him the biggest bash of all time. Thomas' parents are going out of town so this is a perfect time to throw a party. With the help of their friend Jb (Jonathan Daniel Brown) and A/V club member Dax (Dax Flame) filming the entire thing, »

Project X - Blu-ray Review

10 July 2012 4:04 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

It may play as a prequel to the Hangover, especially when you see who produced it, but Project X has some moments of hilarity. It may be more hilarious to a younger generation as my elderly eyes kept thinking about how fast those folks. insurance company was going to drop them. Thomas (Thomas Mann) is having a birthday. Even better his parents are going out of town and leaving him in charge. This sends his pals Costa (Oliver Cooper) and J.B. (Jonathan Daniel Brown) into planning mode. Well, maybe just Costa. They plan to throw an epic party that will raise their cred in school. They even hire Dax (Dax Flame) to document the proceedings with his video »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Project X’ is Complete Waste of Time

5 July 2012 9:32 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Do you think a dog in a bounce house is inherently funny or that a gun that shoots tequila is shocking? “Project X” is a movie for you. What’s so remarkably stupid about this truly awful flick is that its creators think there’s humor or storytelling or shock value in any of it.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

Teenagers drink. Teenagers swear. Teenagers get laid. There’s your movie. That’s literally it since there are no characters worth caring about in the slightest and the plot is as deep as “teens party” (until the final act, which just gets stupid as the creators realize they’re going to need to get totally ridiculous to write an ending). There, I saved you ninety awful minutes. Go do something actually fun like having a party of your own. Try not to piss off any drug dealers on the way there.

Exclusive: Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller Talk 21 Jump Street Blu-ray

26 June 2012 4:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Talk 21 Jump Street, on Blu-ray and DVD today!

When Phil Lord and Chris Miller set out to make 21 Jump Street, they knew they had quite a task on their hands. It's nearly impossible to convince moviegoers sight-unseen that this is more than just a cash grab designed to prey on nostalgic feelings for a young Johnny Depp and the 80s. But somehow, they managed to create an action comedy that plays fresh and new, and is quite possibly going to be remembered as the best TV-to-film adaptation to ever arrive at the box office.

Critics raved, fans cheered, bloggers tried valiantly to pass on the good word...Yet, a huge majority of you still failed to acknowledge that this is actually one movie worthy of its ticket price. The good news is, now you can rectify the situation today by purchasing either the 21 Jump Street »

Blu-ray Review: Project X

25 June 2012 1:42 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Project X

Stars: Thomas Mann, Jonathan Daniel Brown, Oliver Cooper, Dax Flame, Nichole Bloom, Alex Rose Wiesel, Alexis Knapp | Written by Matt Drake, Michael Bacall | Directed by Nima Nourizadeh

Project X is the latest opus from Todd Phillips, the man behind Old School and The Hangover, who here returns to his Frathouse roots as producer of this high-school based, shot documentary-style comedy that follows one epic night in the life of three teenagers – Thomas, J.B. and Costa – who, in order to up their rep at school, throw an out of control, balls-to-the-wall party to celebrate Thomas’ birthday. With disastrous results. And these aren’t your normal disastrous results either, not unless you class destroying a car, a house and an entire neighbourhood as normal party behaviour!

Like all good movies, Project X is not just a movie about a party that breaks out into a full-scale riot, oh no. »

Exclusive: Brie Larson Talks 21 Jump Street Blu-ray

Brie Larson Talks 21 Jump Street, on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, June 26th

It came as a shock, we know, but 21 Jump Street actually turned out to be an amazing experience. It still resides as the best comedy of the year, and it may just be the best TV-to-Film adaptation ever made, with maybe the exception of The Fugitive. It's taken a bit of an effort to get this fact across to the ticket buying public, but once they give into 21 Jump Street's wily ways, we know they'll be hooked.

If you refused its run in theaters, now you can catch what you missed and hit yourself in the face, screaming, "Dang! They were right! This shit is too good to pass up!" As 21 Jump Street makes its way to Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, June 26th.

Review: Project X

18 June 2012 10:31 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Growing up, I went to plenty of parties, but never one when the parents were out of town. I always felt I missed out on something until I heard the time my younger cousin held such an affair, resulting in $1500 in property damage (in 1980 dollars). Call me uptight or a loser, much as Thomas (Thomas Mann), is in Project X.

Designed to be the ultimate party film, it was based on the recollections of various people who attended outrageous parties while parents were out of town. Cobbling the stories together, Michael Bacall and Matt Drake wrote a script and director Nima Nourizadeh sought out relative unknowns and total unknowns to populate the cast, giving it a fresh feel. Eight different camera systems were used including the main images purportedly shot by an Av studio Dax (Dax Flame) and cell phones given to various extras, who shot moments without others realizing it. »

21 Jump Street Public Service Announcement for 'Lepatitis A'

14 March 2012 2:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Columbia Pictures is in the home stretch of its marketing campaign for the upcoming comedy 21 Jump Street, which hits theaters in just a few short days starting March 16. The studio has released a fake public service announcement, which warns against the dangers of "finger-blasting," a practice you may remember from an earlier clip.

21 Jump Street Public Service Announcement for Lepatitis A

21 Jump Street was released March 16th, 2012 and stars Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle, DeRay Davis, Ice Cube, Dax Flame. The film is directed by Phil Lord, Chris Miller. »

Exclusive: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube and Rob Riggle Talk 21 Jump Street!

13 March 2012 2:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum head back to school in the film adaptation of 21 Jump Street. The 80's TV drama made Johnny Depp a star, but gets a comedic update for 21st century audiences. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum play a pair of goofball rookies chosen to uncover a dangerous new drug's source at a Los Angeles High School. Ice Cube co-stars as their profane and frustrated Captain, while Rob Riggle almost steals the film as the hard-charging phys ed teacher.

21 Jump Street is really funny with great chemistry between the leads. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum were a riot, doing the interviews in their bicycle cop outfits. Ice Cube discusses how he's gone from f**k the police in his Nwa days to playing cops and roles of authority. Rob Riggle went the opposite route. He talks about his career in the Marines and how it lead to doing comedy. »

Project X Sequel Happening at Warner Bros.

6 March 2012 4:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The low-budget high school comedy Project X performed above expectations at the box office last weekend, taking second place with an impressive $21 million. Warner Bros. is wasting no time by moving forward with a sequel, hiring scribe Michael Bacall to write a treatment for the follow-up.

Project X centers on three social outcasts (Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown), who decide to throw a party to get in the good graces with the popular crowd at their high school, when things go wildly out of control. It isn't known if Warner Bros. has deals in place with the actors to return for a sequel. Oliver Cooper and Jonathan Daniel Brown made their feature debuts in Project X, and Thomas Mann had only appeared in It's Kind of a Funny Story before Project X.

It is said that the sequel hinges on how much producers Todd Phillips and Joel Silver »

Competition: Win 'Project X' merchandise

6 March 2012 1:14 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

In 2011 Warner Bros. invited audiences to exclusive screenings of the new creation from director Nima Nourizadeh. “An epic, dirty, hilarious movie. I wish I was there!” “Funny as hell!” and “Superbad on crack!” were just some of the reactions. The exclusive screening was for the new Warner Bros. film Project X – the party movie to end all party movies - and today we want to offer you the chance to watch the film at the special screening and party hard at the exclusive after-party in London.

Project X follows three seemingly anonymous high school seniors as they attempt to finally make a name for themselves. Their idea is innocent enough: let’s throw a party that no one will forget… but nothing could prepare them for this party. Word spreads quickly as dreams are ruined, records are blemished and legends are born. Project X is a warning to parents and police everywhere. »

‘Project X’ interview with actors Jonathan D. Brown, Oliver Cooper, and Thomas Mann

3 March 2012 10:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The geeks continue their mission to reach the summit of acceptance with Project X, a rambunctious found footage movie produced by Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and Joel Silver (Lethal Weapon, among many other films). The adventurous geeks, who eventually turn a birthday night into a life-changing event, are played by unknowns Oliver Cooper, and Jonathan D. Brown, along with Thomas Mann from It’s Kind of a Funny Story.

I sat down with the three party gods in a roundtable interview to discuss the making of the film, the dead person they’d take as their party “+1,” and how they feel about the people on “Jersey Shore” who make partying a profession.

Project X is now playing in theaters nationwide.

Which behavior or stunt that any of you did in the film was totally opposite to who you really are, as in “I couldn’t imagine doing that in a »

Producer Todd Phillips and Director Nima Nourizadeh Project X Interview

2 March 2012 3:03 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With producer Todd Phillips and director Nima Nourizadeh‘s R-rated teen comedy Project X opening today, last weekend I got to talk with the filmmakers and cast about making the film.  Starring Thomas Mann, Miles Teller, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Dax Flame, Nichole O’Connor and Alexis Knapp, Project X is about a group of outsiders that decide to throw a party where things get absolutely out of control.  Trust me, there is no way you see this movie and leave the theater disappointed.   For more on the film, here’s a ton of images and four clips. During my interview with Phillips and Nourizadeh we talked about whether or not they had to cut out anything to get an R rating, the soundtrack and how they picked the music, the editing (including how they used extras to shoot some of the movie), and a lot more. »

Project X Review

2 March 2012 9:20 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Imagine the ultimate high school senior year house party from the male perspective and push it over the edge. That’s a rough description of the absurdity and chaos that breaks out in the latest handheld camera film called Project X. Following three seniors trying to throw a party that will get them noticed once and for all, they end up losing control and everything turns into absolute chaos as it expands. However, that’s after they have a whole hell of a lot of fun getting there. Unfortunately, like waking up with a hangover, the ending of this film almost ruins what happened before. Almost. Hit the jump for my full review. Thomas (Thomas Mann) has been coasting through his high school years. He gets good grades but is otherwise uninteresting. His two best friends, Jb (Jonathan Daniel Brown) and Costa (Oliver Cooper), are similarly unknown but for Thomas »

Project X

Cast: Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown

Running Time: 1 hr 28 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: March 2, 2012

Plot: Three high schoolers throw a huge birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things get out of control.

Who’S It For? High school kids who want to dare to dream. Keep in mind, this would be any adult’s nightmare.

Overall

Is March 4, 2012 the day I realized I was old? The next time I use the term “fuddy-duddy” could I be using it to describe myself? For a little bit, that’s what Project X had me thinking about. Then I realized I’m going to Vegas for a bachelor party, and right after that I’ll be at SxSW for films and a near countless amount of concerts. Yes, concerts! Of the rock and/or roll variety!
