Why 'Boyhood' is a different story on the Oscar front for IFC Films

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" added more screens this weekend and currently finds itself in 107 theaters nationwide. With a per-screen average of around $16,000, the weekend gross was north of $1.7 million, bringing the overall tally to over $4.1 million to date. As it continues to find its audience, the film is obviously a long play for IFC Films, and the prospect of awards recognition lurks, as ever, just over the horizon. Can "Boyhood" be a significant player in the Oscar season for a company that has never really made awards a part of its overall business model? Better yet, if the answer is yes, could it become a significant threat in a season that may well end up a lackluster one when all is said and done? There are a lot of possibilities here, and plenty of questions, for what is easily one of the most unique films in the 2014 marketplace. I hopped »

Forecast: 'Apes' Sequel Swings In to Theaters This Weekend

10 July 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes earned an estimated $4.1 million from Thursday night shows beginning at 10 p.m. That's a significant improvement on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which earned $1.25 million at midnight.Unfortunately, it doesn't compare favorably to recent releases. That number is less than half of the Thursday night openings for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Godzilla and Spider-Man benefited from 7 p.m. showtimes, though Transformers was essentially in the same position as Apes.Another unflattering comparison: on the same weekend last year, Pacific Rim scored $3.6 million from late Thursday shows. For the weekend, the movie wound up with just $37.3 million.Apes should still be safely over $50 million for the weekend. But the odds of it breaking out to over $75 million now look slim.Forecast: Coming off the slowest Fourth of July in over a decade, the »

Brandon Routh, George Lazenby and the one-hit movie wonders

8 July 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes," it's claimed Andy Warhol once said. Some stars shine much brighter than others, though, and in the case of Hollywood we often see actors hit big early before disappearing without trace.

Brandon Routh, who delivered a sensitive and assured turn as the Man of Steel in 2006's Superman Returns, is one such example. Routh never quite got the breaks he deserved after landing that life-changing role, so it's nice to see him back in the superhero game with an upcoming role as Atom in Arrow.

Digital Spy takes a look back at a handful of stars who couldn't escape their one big role.

Brandon Routh

Plucked from relative obscurity to lead Bryan Singer's lavish Superman sequel, Routh impressively channelled Christopher Reeve on his big screen debut but found leading man roles difficult to come by in the aftermath.

Are Shailene Woodley and Kristen Stewart really 2015 Oscar players?

5 June 2014 7:19 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Fault in Our Stars" arrives in theaters tomorrow having already transformed itself from summer sleeper to expected blockbuster. The reviews have been very positive with a number of critics even admitting they were bawling at the end. That being said, when it really comes down to it, most reviewers will admit Josh Boone's direction leaves a lot to be desired. Still, the movie works. Why?  The reasons are two fold. First, Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley have genuine on screen chemistry. And, second, Woodley pretty much carries the movie. It's as simple as that. (In fact, it really may just be all Woodley here. She also had a fantastic bond with Theo James in "Divergent.") As for the movie itself, "Stars" is told from the direct point of view of Hazel, the teenage cancer patient played by Woodley. The film lives and breathes on her ability to have »

Oscar Quandaries: Original Or Adapted?

30 May 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Screenplay categories were not always as fluid as they are now and once adhered to very strict rules about a script's prior existence. Now, they let you get away with a little fudging which started in force a dozen years ago when Gangs of New York and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which had spent all of their pre-release hype talking about being adapted from [insert fabulous thing here] were suddenly "originals" through complicated explanations once awards season was in sway and it became clear that the original category was infinitely less competitive. Since then much has changed and now previously established characters is a thing everyone does to fight for adapted (when it suits them) and the lines are really blurry.

Adapted Or Original. Either Could Happen...

So here are four plus movies that seem like they're balancing on a wire between original and adapted. Which way will they fall?

Hey Nia Vardalos: Here Are 11 Do's and Don'ts for Your Sequel to 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'

30 May 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Nia Vardalos' romantic comedy "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" hit theaters in 2002 it became a word-of-mouth, sleeper hit (to the tune of over $350 worldwide). Much of the film's success came from the fact that the Portokalos family was so relatable, with the demanding parents, and their quirky, ethnic traditions. Recently, Vardalos announced on Twitter that a sequel was in the works. (1 of 2) I'm working on the MBFGWedding sequel; now that I'm experiencing motherhood I feel ready to write this next chapter.— Nia Vardalos (@NiaVardalos) May 27, 2014 (2 of 2) A few jaded press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again.

‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ Is Back

29 May 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If you’re one of the many who enjoyed 2002′s hugely successful My Big Fat Greek Wedding, then you’re in luck – there’s a sequel in the works.

Both written by and starring Nia Vardalos, the first film follows Greco-American Toula (Vardalos) and her relationship with Us “Wasp” Ian (John Corbett).

It looks like much of the original team in on board for the sequel. Vardalos will once again write and star in the movie, while Corbett is also reprising his role as the husband. Playtone, HBO and Gold Circle are all involved again too, as are a whole bevy of producers (Rita WilsonTom Hanks, Gary Goetzmanare, Paul BrooksScott NiemeyerNorm Waitt and Steve Shareshian). However whether original director Joel Zwick returns remains to be seen.

All we know of the new script at the moment is it features a family secret and, of course, another Greek wedding. »

Greek Mom Cries When Told of 'Big Fat Greek Wedding' Sequel

Have you ever cried upon hearing about a new movie coming out? I don't think I have. I was pretty excited about "Speed Racer" for a second, but the movie did not match the thrill of the trailer. No, it did not. But this woman is pretty psyched about the sequel to "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," so thank you, Nia Vardalos. And no thank you to Darren Aronofsky, who really offended this lady. »

This Will Remind You Why You Loved My Big Fat Greek Wedding

You didn't even know you missed the Portokalos family, but you did. Trust me. The fictional family from 2002's Indie hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding might seem like forgotten relatives, but they're coming back. HBO Films is developing a sequel to the movie, and Nia Vardalos and John Corbett are set star in it again. There will be another wedding, as well as a family secret. And I presume some Windex. Vardalos talked about the project, '"Of course, a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true." On this good news, let's look back at why everyone went crazy over this movie in the first place. With the help of GIFs, of course. »

'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2' is happening because what the heck

28 May 2014 3:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Get ready for more Windex jokes. Nia Vardalos is making a sequel to "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" more than 12 years removed from the first film's blockbuster run in 2002, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Vardalos has already written the script and will reprise her role as Toula Portokalos, a Greek-American woman who in the first film met and married a non-Greek man (John Corbett) while trying to get her large overbearing family to accept him into the fold. Corbett is also set to return in the follow-up, which "involves the reveal of a family secret and a new wedding, described as bigger and fatter, that brings the Greek clan together again." “Now that I'm experiencing motherhood, I'm ready to write the next chapter of my family story,” said Vardalos in a statement. “Of course a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or »

‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ Sequel Promises Bigger, Fatter Wedding

28 May 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you’re a hopeless romantic, Greek, into the career moves of John Corbett or just really passionate about the films of the year 2002 (what?, I don’t know your life), then the news that My Big Fat Greek Wedding is getting a sequel 12 years later should be music to your ears. For a refresher — it was 12 years ago, after all — the original story followed the mousy, frumpy Toula Portokalos (Nia Vardalos), a woman from an overbearing but loving Greek family who just wanted to see her wind up with a nice Greek boy. She wanted more out of life, and that meant a career and love on her own terms, specifically with a dreamboat in the form of John Corbett, as many a woman in pop culture are wont to do (attn: Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah from Parenthood). She was able to find love and happiness with her new guy, who »

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Gets A Big Fat Greek Sequel

28 May 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been more than a decade since the release of Nia Vardalos’s comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding, a film that earned her an Oscar nomination for best screenplay, and resulted in an ill-fated television show and some equally ill-fated copycat films. It seems that the actress is now planning a comeback, of sorts, in the form of a sequel to her successful film.

Vardalos will reprise her role as first-generation Greek woman Toula, who fell in love with decidedly non-Greek Ian (John Corbett, also returning). The sequel will feature the reveal of a family secret and yet another big fat wedding to bring the Greek clan together again. Presumably, this will take place ten years after the event of the original film. Vardalos penned the script for the sequel, and also plans to executive produce alongside original producers Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, and Gary Goetzman.
