TheWrap's Reactions to ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ First Trailer: The Amused, Confused and ‘I Don't Give a [Bleep] About This’

34 minutes ago

Social media is abuzz with strong opinions on “Fifty Shades of Grey's” first look trailer, which was released Thursday. TheWrap has some thoughts of its own. The response is overwhelmingly sarcastic, though news editor Todd Cunningham does try to inject some insight into Universal's potential marketing strategy: “The trailer is focused far more on the set up and romantic dynamic than the sex. That may make sense… but it's a delicate balancing act that will leave audiences very disappointed if it isn't managed just right.” See video: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Trailer: Jamie Dornan Introduces Dakota Johnson to His ‘Singular’ Tastes Still. »

How ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Brought Rocket Raccoon and Groot to Life

1 hour ago

An off-kilter genre film veteran, James Gunn had a very clear mission for “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Though it was his first studio franchise movie, Gunn aimed to avoid translating the little-known Marvel title into a typical tentpole action film, steering clear of gritty origin story trappings that turn its spandex-clad musclemen into tragic, existentially tortured victims of their own power. “There are a lot of those movies that are really boring to me,” Gunn told TheWrap earlier this week. “There are a lot of movies out there that try to be dark and brooding, when they just seem like they're putting. »

1 hour ago

The drama surrounding the comings and goings at “The View” isn't doing anything to increase the show's viewership. Questions about the fate of the show's panel began with Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy announcing June 27 that they were exiting the show. The next day's episode was pre-taped, not live, and was followed by a week of reruns. Shepherd and McCarthy returned July 7 to begin serving out contracts that end next month.

How Sony's ‘Goosebumps’ Reinvents the Book Adaptation

2 hours ago

Jack Black and director Rob Letterman have stumbled upon an easy solution to please fans of “Goosebumps,” R.L. Stine's popular horror books for kids. Rather than adapt a specific book, Mike White and Darren Lemke wrote a movie that incorporated creepy crawlers from various books, and injected the author into the story (personified by Black). This approach enabled Letterman and the writers to pick and choose their favorite monsters from a massive trove of books, pleasing as many fans as possible. Filmmakers often alienate fanboys and fangirls when their adaptations are not loyal enough to the source material (or too. »

‘A Most Wanted Man’ Review: Philip Seymour Hoffman Bends the Spy Game Rules

2 hours ago

As we've learned from countless novels, movies, and TV shows over the years, the great spies glean information by distracting their marks with one narrative, all the while subtly weaving a separate, hidden agenda. That's a concept that works for screenwriter Andrew Bovell (“Lantana,” “Head On”) and director Anton Corbijn (“The American,” “Control”) in their big-screen adaptation of John le Carré's “A Most Wanted Man.” There are a lot of characters and events for the audience to process and digest, but all the while it's the film's theme that sneaks up and overtakes the plot, making for a powerful climax. »

Amazon Q2 Losses Larger Than Anticipated

2 hours ago

Amazon was expected to lose $0.15 per share for Q2 — the actual loss came to $0.27 a share. But look at the bright side: there's still free shipping for orders over $35. Analysts were spot-on with their revenue estimate of $19.34 billion, however — a 23 percent sales increase year-over-year. The negative earnings come from a net loss of $126 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. For the same three-month period last year, Amazon reported a loss of $0.02 per share.

Nicki Minaj Flaunts Air Jordans and Her Assets for Racy ‘Anaconda’ Cover (Photo)

2 hours ago

Nicki Minaj bared her very ample backside on Instagram Thursday to promote her new single “Anaconda.” The photo of the “Pink Friday” rapper — which shows her posing in a pink sports bra, a pink G-string, and pink and blue basketball sneakers — left very little to the imagination. Unless of course your imagination went into overdrive trying to figure out how, exactly, she managed to get her kicks so darned shiny.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Review: Chris Pratt Rides Shotgun on Marvel's Charming Space Opera

3 hours ago

Take the Dirty Dozen, subtract the Magnificent Seven, and you'll roughly get the membership of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” a surprisingly winning space-faring adventure with a group of Marvel Comics characters led by Chris Pratt in a breakout action-lead performance. Taking place in the far-flung outer-space territories of the shared universe created in the Marvel Studios movies (“The Avengers,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” et. al.), “Guardians of the Galaxy” takes a B-team of lesser-known comic-book heroes — no familiar faces like Thor, Wolverine or Iron Man here — and, thanks to director and co-writer James Gunn (“Slither,” “Super”), wrings »

Alamo Drafthouse Theater Warns Texas Governor Candidate: ‘We'll Kick Your Ass Out’ (Video)

3 hours ago

A warning to all chatty power brokers/movie fans: Alamo Drafthouse plays no favorites and does no political favors. Greg Abbott, the arch-conservative Republican nominee for governor in Texas, recently released a campaign ad that emphasizes his seeming inability to speak into the camera unless he's sitting in a movie theater. This did not sit well with the Drafthouse, which has a famously strict ban on talking in its theaters, prompting the 18-house chain to release a very public threat to the man who not only wants you to talk in theaters, but also text “Freedom” to his campaign while watching. »

Nothing goes better with coffee than donuts, as Jerry Seinfeld says about the disemboweled confections in his first “Single Shot,” a spinoff from his successful web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” While “Cars” features Seinfeld and one other comedian talking about many things, “Single Shot” features several comedians covering one topic. In the premiere episode, that something is donuts, and those discussing them are Tina Fey, Brian Regan, and Sarah Silverman.
