More on Meet The Patels

18 July 2015 12:17 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Meet The Patels, the real life heartwarming romantic comedy is currently being screened at the London Indian Film Festival both tonight and on July 22nd. The film will next make its way to the Us and open this September! Mtp tells the story of Ravi Patel, an almost-30-year-old Indian-American who enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams…and his parents. This hilarious and heartwarming film started as a family vacation video (with Ravi’s sister behind the camera) and reveals how love is a family affair.

Here is something interesting it took the sibling directing team, Geeta V. Patel and Ravi V. Patel, six years to make the film. It then took another two years until it premiered at Hot Docs Film Festival in 2014.

“When it finally premiered a year ago, the crowd went wild, and what followed was a chain of sold-out screenings across the country. »

Cat Deeley Replaces John Stamos as Emmy Noms Co-Host

10 July 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

John Stamos has pulled out as co-host of the 2015 Emmy Awards nominations, and “Deadbeat’s” Cat Deeley will fill the “Grandfathered” star’s shoes.

Stamos’ departure was blamed on a scheduling conflict and a rep was not immediately available to elaborate. In addition to “Grandfathered,” Stamos’ upcoming Fox sitcom, the actor is a producer on — and will appear in — Netflix’s “Fuller House.” He also appears in the upcoming sequel to “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”

In June, the Beverly Hills Police Department arrested him for driving under the influence. His court date had been set for Sept. 11.

Deeley is no stranger to Emmy nominations morning, as she has four nominations in the host of a reality competition category for Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” “Orange Is the New Black’s” Uzo Aduba, who received last year’s Emmy Award for guest actress in a comedy, is »

'Inside Out' Beats 'Jurassic World' in Final July 4th Box Office Tally

6 July 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, we reported that Universal's Jurassic World took the top spot at the box office for the fourth week in a row, earning an estimated $30.9 million, just barely beating out Pixar's Inside Out, which took in $30.1 million. Today, Deadline reports that the actual box office figures have Inside Out pulling away with a narrow victory, earning $29.7 million, barely beating Jurassic World's actual tally of $29.4 million. The actual figures have yet to be confirmed, but this means that Inside Out will not be able to break the obscure record of highest-grossing film never to hit #1 at the box office, held by the 2002 indie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which earned $241.3 million without ever claiming the top spot.

Inside Out has taken in $245.8 million since opening on June 19, which currently ranks as the 7th highest Pixar movie of all time. It will most likely pass Monsters Inc., The Incredibles and Monsters University sometime this week, »

Box Office: Jurassic World Edges Out Inside Out Once Again; New Releases Settle for Scraps

5 July 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It looked like the holiday frame would give Pixar’s Inside Out the advantage, but it was not to be. Jurassic World edged out the animated hit with an estimated $30.9 million to Io’s $30.1 million. So at least for now, Inside Out will remain the only Pixar feature to be locked out of number one at the box office. That gives it a unique status: as the highest-grossing film to never reach number one. The former holder of that record was My Big Fat Greek Wedding, with $241.4 million. Of course, there’s still a chance that Io will hit number one. But with Minions on the horizon, this weekend was probably its last chance. [Editor's Note: Dave here. As of this moment, Jurassic World has also surpassed Avengers: Age of Ultron for all-time worldwide box office grosses by $1.5 million, taking the #5 spot.] Inside Out was down 42% in its third weekend: a nearly identical hold to its sophomore frame. The film has earned a total of $246.1 million in North America over 17 days, which makes it the seventh highest grossing »

New "Terminator," "Mike" Open Behind Pixar

5 July 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The July 4th holiday weekend saw not one but numerous titles fighting it out for honors, though it was the two incumbent champs of June that held off the competition. "Jurassic World" and "Inside Out" took the top spots over the three day holiday, both garnering around $30 million each.

"Jurassic World" continues to break records as domestically its $558 million total has now surpassed "The Dark Knight" to become the fourth highest domestic grosser ever. Worldwide its $1.385 billion haul has it in fifth place of all time, just passing "Avengers: Age of Ultron" ($1.384 billion) but just behind "Furious 7" ($1.512 billion).

"Inside Out" meanwhile has scored a dubious honor - its $246 million total means it's now the highest-grossing film to never reach number one, surpassing "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" with $241 million. It's also the only Pixar feature not to hold the number one position at the box office.

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Get Hard"

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up in this comedy about a rich hedge-fund manager who is sentenced to San Quentin; desperate for tips on how to survive prison, he looks for help from a black businessman, assuming he'll know what to do. That's not racist at all! As it turns out, Hart's businessman has never even had a parking ticket, so it's the blind leading the blind. The Blu-ray has tons of extras, including an unrated cut of the film, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and these featurettes: "Just Put Your Lips Together and Blow," "Get Hard Line-o-Ramas," "The Kevin Hart Workout," "Face Off with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart," "-Ferrell Fighting," "A Date with John Mayer, »

Nia Vardalos and (Shirtless) John Corbett Wrap 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2'

29 June 2015 2:14 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Grab some Windex and maybe give yourself the first spritz after checking out the full photo of John Corbett in all his shirtless glory. Opa! That Toula is a lucky woman. (And that Ian is a lucky man.) Nia Vardalos became a major star back in 2002 thanks to "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," and she and Corbett are returning for "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2," which is scheduled for a March 25, 2016 release.

Sequel filming started in late May in Toronto and just wrapped, which we know because Vardalos kindly shared some photos from set. A few days ago, she shared this shot with Corbett, joking, "Is someone trying to get baptized again in #MyBigFatGreekWedding2?":

In the caption with the photo Vardalos referenced the scene in the first film, saying: "Is someone trying to get baptized again in #MyBigFatGreekWedding2 ?"

The Greek gang is back together! My Big Fat Greek Wedding co-stars Nia Vardalos and Joey Fatone reunited Wednesday on the Toronto set of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. The longtime pals were all smiles while getting to work on the sequel. The 52-year-old actress looked radiant in a white T-shirt dress. Meanwhile, the 'N Sync singer, who plays Vardalos' cousin in the franchise, was outfitted in a formal black and white tux with a bow tie (perhaps he's dressed for another Greek wedding scene?). Vardalos also shared an on0set Twitter pic inside a chapel with the caption, "I love Background Actors, especially ours who applauded after scenes today. #MyBigFatGreekWedding2." It was »

Bob Berney joins Amazon Studios

1 June 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The independent cinema guru arrives at the company as head of movies distribution and marketing while former ABC digital executive Albert Cheng is named COO.

Berney most recently served as CEO at Picturehouse, a company he brought back to life in 2013 from the ashes of the specialty label he helped launch with New Line and Warner Bros back in 2005.

Ironically the executive signed the new-look Picturehouse to an output deal with Amazon Studios’ rival Netflix.

Berney’s arrival will be a major coup for Amazon Studios. He famously orchestrated breakout campaigns for the likes of The Passion Of The Christ, Pan’s Labyrinth and My Big Fat Greek Wedding and served in senior roles at Newmarket Films, Film District, Apparition and IFC Films.

Cheng most recently served as Disney ABC Television Group evp and chief product officer of digital media. »

‘Aloha’ Sinks Under Wave of Harsh Reviews With $10 Million

31 May 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even a starry cast led by Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, a counter-programming bid against action-heavy “San Andreas,” a romantic Hawaiian setting and a beloved director weren’t enough to keep “Aloha” afloat in its opening weekend.

Sony’s long-awaited Cameron Crowe romantic comedy, which washed ashore laden with a heavy cargo of bad buzz and brutal reviews, landed in sixth place this weekend with $10 million at 2,816 locations in the U.S.

But Sony distribution chief Rory Bruer said the opening was “within the studio’s expectations,” and pointed to the B+ CinemaScore for the Cooper, Stone and Rachel McAdams starrer as indication that the troubled film could hold well in coming weeks.

“We’re proud of the film,” he said Sunday. “Our very talented cast is great and we believe it will leg out nicely. There are  so many special moments, so it’s very satisfying for audience members. »

Ashley Judd’s ‘Big Stone Gap’ Set for Oct. 9 Release

26 May 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bob Berney’s Picturehouse has acquired all U.S. rights to Ashley Judd’s “Big Stone Gap” from Altar Identity Studios and will release the film nationwide on Oct. 9.

'World War Z' Sequel Set for 2017 Release Opposite 'Fantastic Four 2'

22 May 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The likelihood of Fantastic Four 2 of keeping its release date seems slim at this point. Then again, the likelihood of World War Z 2 (or whatever Paramount ends up calling it) sticking with its newly found release date seems also slim. The Fantastic Four sequel has already moved all around the calendar, dodging Star Wars: Episode VIII from July 14, 2017 to June 2, to June 9, 2017, where it now resides and has just gained company in the World War Z sequel, which will again star Brad Pitt and be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) with a screenplay by Steven Knight (Locke). Of course, the first World War Z also had release date issues, moving all over the board, though that largely stemmed from production issues. Considering we're talking about a release date over two years away I guess it hardly matters one way or another. However, in other release date news, »

Save the Date: 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2' Coming in 2016

22 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Consider this your official save-the-date card: "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2" is slated for release on March 25, 2016.

If that date sounds familiar to you, that's because another high-profile sequel is also bowing that weekend: "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." We're assuming that studio Universal is going for a counter-programming strategy by choosing that weekend.

Then again, this flick is all about surprise, since the announcement of its existence in the first place also raised eyebrows. The film is a follow-up to 2002 hit comedy "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," which made star Nia Vardalos a household name (for a little while, anyway) and earned an Oscar nomination in the process, thanks to a big push from producers Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

Hanks and Wilson are back to produce this time around, as are stars Vardalos and John Corbett. The plot is set to revolve around the revelation of »

My Big Fat Greek Wedding sequel to open up against Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016

21 May 2015 10:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Grab the windex, because 2016 will feature Batman vs. Superman vs… The Portokalos family?

That’s what we’re hearing from THR, who report that the sequel to the hit 2002 comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding has landed a March 25th, 2016 release date, which means it’ll be going up against Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the box office.

That may seem foolish upon first glance, but the first film (which cost a measly $5 million) brought in over $368 million, despite never reaching number one spot at the box office. It’ll also serve as great counter programming to Warner Brothers’ highly anticipated blockbuster, meaning it could make a lot of money from those not waiting to see the DC titans engage in fisticuffs on screen.

Waking Ned Devine and Nanny McPhee director Kirk Jones will helm Mbfgw 2, which was once again written by film star Nia Vardalos. Vardalos will »
