George Clooney Lied About Sending The Interview Petition to Film Studios?

26 December 2014 2:34 AM, PST

After George Clooney found out that Sony Pictures was bullied into canceling the release of "The Interview," he and his CAA agent Bryan Lourd put together a letter in support of Sony, hoping that heads of all major studios and agencies would sign. The letter states: "This is not just an attack on Sony. It involves every studio, every network, every business and every individual in this country. That is why we fully support Sony's decision not to submit to these hackers' demands. We know that to give in to these criminals now will open the door for any group that would threaten freedom of expression, privacy and personal liberty." Clooney then told Deadline the bad news... no one signed the letter. "[The petition] was sent to basically the heads of every place. They told Bryan Lourd, 'I can't sign this.' What?

26 December 2014 2:34 AM, PST

After tons of pressure, Sony Pictures announced that it will release "The Interview" in 300 theaters. And before the release, the comedy was made available for purchase and rental on Google Play, YouTube Movies and Xbox Video.

25 December 2014 3:32 AM, PST

While promoting "Into the Woods," Chris Pine was asked whether there will be a sequel to "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," which was the fourth installment in the Jack Ryan franchise. "No. I don't think it made enough money for that to happen," he said. "That's one of my deep regrets, that we didn't totally get that right. It's a great franchise and if it's not me then I hope it gets a fifth life at this point. It's just great. I love the spy genre. I hope it's done again and with a great story." "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" was released back in January, grossing $50 million domestically on a budget of $60 million. Thanks to international box office, the film earned a total of $135 million worldwide, but that's still by far worst performance of the franchise. »

Despite the amazing results, both previous "The Hobbit" films performed better. "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opened to $84.6 million in 2012 and "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" opened to $73.6 million last year. "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" has a 61% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Taking second place is "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," which is also a third film in the franchise.

"Secret of the Tomb" cost $127 million to make, which means that it will heavily rely on international box office to keep loses to a minimum. »
