29 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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?":

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Reunion! See Pic of Nia Vardalos and Joey Fatone Together on Set of the Sequel

11 June 2015 3:46 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

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. »

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.

‘Pitch Perfect 2′: How Home Viewers and ‘Cups’ Scored an Original Hit

20 May 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pitch Perfect 2″ hasn’t just made more than the first film in the a cappella series. It topped its predecessor’s lifetime gross in a single weekend, after the modestly budgeted sequel debuted to a stunning $69.2 million.

The incredible growth in “Pitch Perfect’s” fanbase between installments is testament to the way that Universal Pictures organically built the audience for the quirky franchise about a group of misfit college vocalists. It’s a success story that was three years in the making, and one that relied on strong word-of-mouth that gained momentum on cable television, on-demand platforms, and through chart-topping soundtrack sales.

“We had a strong built in-audience as a result of the overall holistic marvel the film became in its afterlife,” said Paul Brooks, president of Gold Circle Films and a producer on the “Pitch Perfect” films. “People responded to it very aggressively when it screened on TV and HBO. »

3 April 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

"Without a Trace" star Anthony Lapaglia is headed for divorce court ... TMZ has learned.

'Birdman' puts Fox Searchlight and New Regency at the top of the Oscar mountain

23 February 2015 11:49 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The ripples from the 87th Academy Awards will be felt for years to come. Most are positive, some are negative, but beyond a disappointingly long and unfunny telecast this wasn't an Oscar season that will be forgotten anytime soon. First off, the importance of Fox Searchlight's dominance during the telecast cannot be discounted. The mini-major took home eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director and Original Screenplay for "Birdman." The four wins for "The Grand Budapest Hotel" notably included Alexandre Desplat's first win for Best Original Score. Moreover, Searchlight has now joined only a small number of studios that have won Best Picture back-to-back. The films they release year after year continue to rank in most film critics' top 10 lists and the modern classics under their banner are significant enough to make parent studio 20th Century Fox green with envy. Over the past two years, they have released "12 Years a Slave, »
