5 Sexy Secrets from the ‘Fifty Shades’ Trailer

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Helicopters! Elevators! Beds! Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele travel to such erotic venues in the first trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which Universal Studios unveiled on “Today” on Thursday morning. Here are five things we learned about the film, which opens on Valentine’s Day 2015.

(1) Jamie Dornan > Charlie Hunnam. There was pandemonium when Hunnam suddenly bailed on playing Christian Grey last fall, but it might have been a blessing in disguise for Universal. Hunnam looked disheveled when he recently appeared at TCA, to promote his TV series “Sons of Anarchy.” On the other hand, Jamie Dornan, a former male model, makes for a more plausible kinky businessman. He seems to be interpreting the role as a cross between Robert Pattinson in “Twilight” and Tom Cruise circa “Eyes Wide Shut.” This could work. And his abs, which are briefly on display, earn an A+, according to our panel of experts. »

‘Kundo: Age of the Rampant’ Smashes Korean First Day Box Office Record

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – Korean period action film “Kundo: Age of the Rampant” has broken the opening day box office record in South Korea.

Opening Wednesday (July 23) it scored 551,000 spectators worth KRW4.08 billion (Us$3.997 million), dethroning “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” the previous title holder.

Released by financier and distributor Showbox, “Kundo” played in 1,250 theatres – or about 63% of the country’s cinema screens – and scored a market share of 77% of all tickets sold.

That put “How To Train Your Dragon 2,” also opening Wednesday on 660 screens, into a distant second place, with 11% market share. Its 72,000 ticket sales translated into a first day gross of $570,000.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” released 13 days previously (July 10) slipped to third, with its $381,000 lifting its two week cume to $24 million.

Directed by Yoon Jong-bin, is a Robin Hood-like tale of militia who turn against unjust nobility. It stars Ha Jung-woo, star of “The Yellow Sea, »

'Lucy' to Beat Up 'Hercules' This Weekend

7 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

On the final weekend of July, two very different action movies will try to reverse the domestic box office's downward trend. Hercules has a much bigger budget and arguably more star power in Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, but the sword-and-sandals epic doesn't appear to be connecting with moviegoers. In contrast, Lucy's eye-catching visuals and intriguing "what if" story has put it on pace for an opening north of $30 million, which should be enough to take first place this weekend.At the start of Summer, Lucy's box office potential didn't look so hot. The movie was scheduled for August 8th, which was smack dab in the middle of a hyper-competitive August that included Guardians of the Galaxy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Expendables 3. It also didn't help that director Luc Besson has a so-so track record at the box office: excluding the Taken franchise, his highest-grossing movie »

Can Luc Besson score another French-import blockbuster with 'Lucy'? (Updated)

18 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Over the course of his dozen-plus films as a writer-director, Parisian auteur Luc Besson has become known for his stylish inversions of schlock genre fare and a certain, shall we call it, Vive la femme attitude toward women.

Time and again, his movies place emotionally fragile female characters in physically perilous situations: a conflicted hit-woman struggling with the perils of her job in 1990’s La Femme Nikita, 12-year old Natalie Portman on the run as an assassin-in-training in The Professional, and Milla Jovovich’s universe-saving alien Leeloo in The Fifth Element (1997) among them. Besson’s latest multiplex offering appears set to follow that template. »

23 July 2014 9:08 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Guardians of the Galaxy” is the most untested and most uncertain property yet to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Perhaps that's why the studio has been blasting a veritable onslaught of promotional material in anticipation of the film's Aug. 1 theatrical release. See video: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ 5-Minute Clip: Chris Pratt's Star-Lord Plots a Prison Break With a Raccoon and a Tree With all of those trailers, teasers, promotional images and behind-the-scenes videos, most everyone is probably aware of the movie, but do they really know anything about it?

Toronto Film Festival's Anti-Telluride Policy May Be Backfiring (Analysis)

18 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Toronto International Film Festival's announcement this week of a chunk of its 2014 lineup was the first demonstrable proof that distributors -- and major filmmakers -- are taking sides in an ugly dispute between Toronto and the Telluride Film Festival. Tuesday's announcement indicates -- and multiple sources confirm -- that Jason Reitman and Noah Baumbach, who both have histories of debuting films at Telluride, are abandoning that event and will be taking their new films --  Reitman's Men, Women and Children (Paramount) and Baumbach's While We're Young (still seeking a U.S. distributor) -- exclusively to Toronto. Meanwhile, Telluride has snagged the world premiere of Wild, the

Here's Why The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Will Be Aliens, After All

2 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

They are teenagers. They are mutants. They are ninjas. They are turtles. And they are aliens. At least, they will be in next month.s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, opening everywhere on August 8. So says Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman, who took to the stage of Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday to help promo Jonathan Liebsman.s new Turtles movie. The team showed much longer action footage that amplified the humor (the turtles, especially Michelangelo, are legitimately funny). But when they opened the floor to fan questions, they had to address one lingering issue surrounding this Tmnt reboot: the fact that the Turtles might be aliens. Eastman was asked by a fan during the Q-and-a why they felt it was necessary to make the Turtles "aliens" in this version of the story. And why he never really came out and said that they Are »

And So It Goes

2 hours ago | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

I’m sure some critics will be dismissive of And So It Goes, writing it off as just another “geezer pleaser” (to use the term coined by Variety for entertainment that appeals to an older crowd). But this sweet film deserves a break, especially as it offers juicy leading roles to Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. Neither one of them sloughs off this romantic yarn: these are conscientious actors and it’s a pleasure to watch them work together. The screenplay, by Mark Andrus (As Good As It Gets), isn’t daring or highly original, but it offers its stars a vehicle that calls on both their comedic and dramatic chops. Director Rob Reiner knows this territory well and handles the material...

Magic In The Moonlight

2 hours ago | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

It’s difficult to dislike Woody Allen’s latest divertissement. With attractive people engaged in amusing repartee, beautiful 1920s clothes, and the South of France as a breathtaking backdrop, Magic in the Moonlight has an abundance of eye candy and charm. It isn’t one of Allen’s best, and I’ll admit there is an air of contrivance about it, but it’s a refreshing change from most of the summer fare—like a cool drink on a hot day. Colin Firth plays a master stage magician with an outsized ego. His boyhood pal (and fellow illusionist) Simon McBurney asks his help to expose a young woman whose sham séances and psychic messages have duped a family of wealthy Americans. Firth...

Happy Christmas

2 hours ago | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

Joe Swanberg’s unscripted films, like Drinking Buddies, are pleasant enough, but they make a strong case for the art of screenwriting. With likable actors improvising their dialogue, based on Swanberg’s story outline, Happy Christmas has engaging moments but left me vaguely dissatisfied. And good as the actors are (Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey, Lena Dunham, Mark Webber, and Swanberg himself) the picture is stolen right out from under them by the director’s adorable 2-year-old son Jude. The camera loves him. Swanberg and Lynskey play the happily married parents of that toddler. Just in time for the holidays, Swanberg’s sister (Kendrick) moves in; she’s gone through a bad...

Hasbro’s Comic-Con Breakfast Recap: Images and Video of All Things Transformers

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Transformers has been a household name for 30 years. While there have been many iterations - the original ‘G1’ series of the ‘80s, the reedited ‘G2’ in the early ‘90s, the CGI wizardry of Beast Wars and Beast Machines, and the Japanese/American co-productionTransformers: Armada - the rise of Michael Bay’s tetralogy has - if you will forgive the pun - transformed and expanded the storied franchise to the point where Hasbro held its own convention-within-a-convention this morning to celebrate the many, many, many ancillary versions of the brand. The breakfast expo included a Transformers museum, footage from multiple concurrent TV series, a build-your-own-Transformer buffet, a beta test of a free Mmog, a variety of nostalgic and ironic repaints, a preview of upcoming toy lines, a selection of non-toy ancillaries, and even a few of the brand’s shepherding executives.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Just Got A Hysterical Red Band Trailer

4 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Holy crap, there's another Hot Tub Time Machine. Above is the red band trailer (Cover Your Eyes, Children) for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 , which gets festive for audiences this Christmas. The weirdest element of this trailer? Continuity! This looks like it picks up directly after the first film where (Spoiler Alert For Hot Tub Time Machine) Nick (Craig Robinson) and Lou (Rob Corddry) exploited time travel to become rich. Because this is a dopey sequel, John Cusack and Lizzy Caplan are nowhere to be found . one could argue that Cusack was sort of slumming it with the first film, though Hot Tub Time Machine, in many ways, has more integrity than this year's The Bag Man . His High Fidelity collaborator Steve Pink had no qualms about returning from the first film to direct the sequel, however, which is again written by Josh Heald. Really, Cusack and Caplan are the »

Comic-Con may be one of the biggest movie-related shindigs on the face of the planet, but it still makes space for some of life’s smaller—not to mention Irish-er—things. That’s in reference, of course, to Leprechaun: Origins, the horror reboot starring WWE wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl as the titular Emerald Isle monster.

To mark today’s Leprechaun-featuring WWE Studios and Lionsgate panel at Comic-Con, EW is exclusively debuting a sequence from the film which boasts the first look at the new Leprechaun himself. At last year’s New York Comic-Con, Leprechaun: Origins director Zach Lipovsky described his movie as “terrifying. »
