Brad Pitt's Fury and Michael Keaton's Birdman Top Box Office

19 October 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Brad Pitt's "Fury" war movie took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with $24 million, which is one of the best openings of all time for a World War II film behind "Pearl Harbor" ($59 million), "Inglourious Basterds" ($38 million) and "Saving Private Ryan ($31 million). It's also the highest opening of director David Ayer's career. The new movie, co-starring Shia Labeouf and Logan Lerman, cost $68 million to make and has an 81% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Thanks to positive reviews, it's expected that "Fury" will have a strong showing overseas, where it begins to roll out next weekend. The animated "Book of Life" movie, voiced by Channing Tatum and Zoe Salanda, ended up in third place with $17 million, which puts it on track to barely earn back its $50 million budget. Internationally, "Book of Life" took another $8.6 million for a worldwide debut of $25.6 million. It has a 79% fresh rating. The »

Nicholas Sparks’ ‘Best of Me’ Can't Find Love at Box Office

19 October 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Nicholas SparksThe Best of Me” lost at love this weekend at the box office. The $10.2 million opening of the ninth big-screen adaptation from the famed romance author was the lowest ever for an adaptation of his novels, below the $12 million that “A Walk to Remember” debuted with back in 2002. And it wasn't even half the $21 million that his last film, “Safe Haven,” managed in its opening. Relativity Media was standing by its man, however. “We have had great success with Nicholas Sparks over the years and are always glad to be in business with him,” the distributor »

Film Review: ‘The Best of Me’ is the Worst of Formulaic Romance Novelist Nicholas Sparks

17 October 2014 10:29 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – What do you see in the compilation image below?

Yes, it’s nine films based on books by romance novelist Nicholas Sparks. But look more closely.

Message in a Bottle” opened his can of worms in 1999 and 2002’s “A Walk to Remember” could only say it was based on a best-selling novel. Then, after averaging one film every 1.6 years, they’ve all been riding on the breakout hit of 2004’s “The Notebook” with Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling.

The nine films based on Nicholas Sparks novels with the most recent in the upper left on the oldest in the lower right.

Image credit: Nicholas Sparks

Rating: 1.0/5.0

In fact, every single movie poster after “The Notebook” had to say it’s from the author of “The Notebook” or else it would have never seen the light of day. The blessing of having a hit later becomes your burden of trying to repeat it. »

Nicholas Sparks Movies Are Actually Full of Goofs!

16 October 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Best of Me hits theaters on Friday and we were inspired to go back and marathon the other movies based on his books. 

The ninth Nicholas Sparks film adaption – sappy romance flick Best of Me -- hits theaters on Friday and we were inspired to go back and marathon the other movies based on his books. 

Movies: Nicholas Sparks Explains Why 'The Best of Me' is the New 'Notebook'

You may not have noticed this earlier, either, but some of your favorite Sparks films actually have some pretty hysterical mess-ups.

Remember when Noah lies in the middle of the street in The Notebook? He says, "My dad and I used to come out here and watch the lights change from green to red to yellow." Um, that's not really possible, Noah -- traffic lights go from green to yellow to red. 

And during the same scene, Noah is lies down in the middle of the »

Nicholas Sparks Wants to Work With Johnny Depp

13 October 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Nicholas Sparks is the modern king of romantic tearjerkers, and The Best of Me, the upcoming adaptation of his novel, is all but guaranteed to make you sniffle. Along with a few other journalists, I was invited to the hot Louisiana set during filming and had a chance to quiz Sparks, as well as his stars, James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. The story follows Dawson and Amanda, a pair of young lovers from opposite sides of the tracks who are reunited in their hometown after decades apart. Sparks filled me in on something that fans of the book are dying to know: the changes between the book and the movie. Plus, he spilled on the actors he'd love to work with (Johnny Depp!) and the movies adapted from his books that he thinks are the most tear-worthy.

Smallville's Tom Welling Lands Lead Role in The Choice

12 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Author Nicholas Sparks has another book, The Choice, being adapted into a movie, and Tom Welling has been cast in a lead role. This might just be the biggest thing to happen to Welling since Smallville ended. He really hasn't done a lot since that series. 

Sparks is a big deal in Hollywood, and his romantic tales usually turn out to be really good films. Some of the movies based off his work include The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, and Dear John. 

The movie also stars Benjamin Walker as Travis Parker and Teresa Palmer as Gabby Holland. In the story they play neighbors in a small coastal town, and "end up pursuing a relationship neither expected." According to Deadline, Welling will take on the role of Kevin McCarthy, a doctor at his father’s practice who is Gabby’s boyfriend. The love triangle plays out over the course of a decade. »

1 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Nicholas Sparks, the beloved author of numerous love story novels, is on the receiving end of a lawsuit from a former employee who claims Sparks is racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic.

Nicholas Sparks Sued

Saul Hillel Benjamin, the ex-headmaster of Sparks’ Epiphany School for Global Studies, is suing the author for wrongful termination, reports TMZ. According to Benjamin’s lawsuit, throughout his time at the Christian school, Sparks displayed the mindset of a racist and homophobic anti-Semite.

Benjamin, upon realizing that only 2 of the 514 students enrolled at the North Carolina school were African American, attempted to start a dialogue about having a more diverse student body. In reply to Benajmin’s inquiry, Sparks allegedly said, “Black students are too poor and can’t do the academic work.”

Sparks supposedly was also not too keen on the Lgbt student body. According to Benjamin, Sparks ignored bullying complaints made by gay students. Benjamin »

Nicholas Sparks makes TV debut with Lifetime’s “Deliverance Creek”

13 September 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

I’m probably not the audience for Nicholas Sparks books and films, but it cannot be denied that he has a tremendous track record in both, given successes such as The Notebook (and its film adaptation), A Walk to Remember (and its film adaptation) and more. Those film adaptations of his books were on the big screen, but tonight he makes his television debut as executive producer of Deliverance Creek, airing 8pm Et on Lifetime. The two-hour movie comes from his Nicholas Sparks Productions. Deliverance Creek is not based on a Nicholas Sparks work, but does include the themes that fans … Continue reading →

Fox's 'Red Band Society' admits Mandy Moore

12 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mandy Moore is scrubbing in as what Fox is calling a "recurring guest star" on the freshman hospital dramedy "Red Band Society." The network announced this morning that Moore will play Dr. Erin Grace, chief of staff at Ocean Park Hospital, home to the pediatric wing caring for the show's main characters. Grace is also the ex-fiancee to Dave Annable's Dr. McAndrews, which may cause seconds of confusion for people who think that with dark hair, Mandy Moore has at least a superficial resemblance -- it's in the cheekbones, I think -- to Annable's real-life wife Odette Annable. "Red Band Society" premieres on Wednesday, September 17 at 9 p.m. on Fox.  You can check out my Take Me To The Pilots entry for a show that I think has a fair amount of potential. I also talked to co-stars Wilson Cruz and Rebecca Rittenhouse earlier this week and I'll be »
