This can go on for years, even after other high-profile roles. Case in point, James Marsden, who still catches flack for his turn in The Notebook. For the uninitiated, in the 2004 adaptation of Nicholas Sparks. romance novel of the same name, Marsden plays the primary obstacle the this-is-destiny love between Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling must overcome.

Talking to Vulture about his latest film, The D Train, the subject of The Notebook came up, and while he admits there are definitely people who think McAdams. character made the wrong choice, he says: Then I also have people coming up and going »

Until today, I didn’t fully understand the Ryan Gosling obsession that America seems to have. What made me finally see the light? It wasn’t "The Notebook", it wasn’t "Drive"…it was a bowl of cereal. That’s right, today the heartthrob actor posted a Vine of himself eating a spoonful of cereal, and it will be the best thing you watch all day. Here are three reasons why: 1. It’s an homage to a bigger project: “Ryan Gosling Wont Eat His Cereal” Scottish filmmaker Ryan McHenry created a series of artistic Vine videos in which he would try to feed a spoonful of cereal to Ryan Gosling as he acted on screen in some of his best-known roles. McHenry coordinated it so that just as his spoon was approaching on-screen Gosling’s mouth, Gosling would recoil, disinterested, or even swat the spoon away. These Vines are extremely charming, »

Ryan Gosling finally decided to eat his cereal, you guys. The Notebook actor posted a video to Vine Monday that paid tribute to Ryan McHenry, the filmmaker who originally created the "Ryan Gosling Won't Eat His Cereal" video. McHenry died Sunday after a two-year battle with cancer, so Gosling poured himself a bowl of Corn Flakes, raised a spoonful in McHenry's honor and chomped down on his cereal. Eva Mendes' longtime partner also tweeted a kind message to the late filmmaker, 27, writing, "My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry's family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way." McHenry also created very personal videos and "cancer »
It is only April, and already Furious 7 is on track to become the movie to beat in terms of sheer gross income. It dropped in revenue by nearly 60%, but an estimated $60.6 million is still more than most films make in their first weekend, let alone their second. It is by far the top earner of the top ten ($252.5 million domestic, $800.5 million worldwide), winning out handily against Home (estimated $19 million) once again. Home still struggles worldwide to make good on its $135 million costs, but both are doing a sight better than the debut of The Longest Ride. Yet another adaptation of a bestselling Nicholas Sparks novel, its estimated $13.5 million weekend is roughly on par with most Sparks releases, but probably will not reach the lofty heights of The Notebook, the highest grosser of his to date.
Get Hard fell to fourth and may not be a winner with critics, but »

The once-winning Nicholas Sparks formula of a young couple.s quest for love being derailed by illness, death or other misfortune seems to be losing its allure at cinemas.
The Longest Ride, a romantic melodrama based on Sparks. 2013 novel, rang up $1.45 million on 220 screens, including previews, last weekend.
That.s better than the anaemic $758,000 debut last year of The Best of Me, which ended up with $2.2 million,. but it's debatable whether the film will have the legs to match previous Sparks adaptations such as The Notebook (which made $6.4 million back in 2004) and Nights in Rodanthe. ($4.55 million in 2008).
The Longest Ride follows the star-crossed love affair between Luke (Scott Eastwood, son of Clint), a former champion rodeo rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophie (Britt Robertson), a college student who's about to embark on her dream job in New York City's art world.

Now must a pretty good time to work at Universal Pictures. In just 10 days, Furious 7 has sped up the box office charts and is now the seventh biggest grosser in the company’s history. The sixth sequel to The Fast and the Furious dropped 59% but still zoomed ahead of anything else playing in theaters, earning an estimated $60.6 million in its sophomore weekend. That is the 12th biggest second weekend of all time, just behind The Dark Knight Rises ($62.1 million). Despite that hefty drop, the film held better in its second lap than the past three films in the franchise, which dropped between 61% and 64%. The slightly lower dip can be contributed to strong word-of-mouth and minimal new competition this weekend.
With a staggering $252.5 million in 10 days, Furious 7 is already the highest grossing film in the franchise in North America, besting Fast and Furious 6‘s $238.7 million. Without a lot of big openers until May, »

Just over a week after release, Universal's "Furious 7" has already past the $800 million mark at the worldwide box-office. This essentially guarantees that the film will become the first in the series, and the first Universal film, to top the $1 billion mark.
It also has already surpassed the $789 million total worldwide gross of the previous film in the series, "Fast & Furious 6". Domestically, "Furious 7" earned a further $60.6 million in its second weekend, bringing its domestic total up to $252.5 million.
The film got a boost internationally thanks to the $68.6 million opening in China where it also scored the highest-grossing one-day result ever in the country. It also opened to a solid $15 million in Russia.
The only major wide opener this weekend in the U.S., the film adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel "The Longest Ride," came in third with $13.5 million which is about on par with other films based »

It wasn’t even a contest.
“Furious 7″ roared to the top of the box office chart for the second weekend in a row, picking up $60.6 million and driving its Stateside total to a massive $252.5 million. That’s a slender 59% drop from the Universal Pictures release’s record-breaking $147.2 million debut and puts “Furious 7″ on track to be the highest-grossing film in the history of the “Fast and Furious” franchise.
“People feel like they’re living through the summer movie season right now even though it’s not summer,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “It’s the essence of a popcorn movie.”
It’s also the essence of perfect timing. By debuting in April, “Furious 7″ avoided being cannibalized by other major summer tentpole films. The next heavyweight to enter the multiplexes is “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which doesn’t hit screens until May 1.

“Furious 7” is blowing the competition out of the water on its second lap at the box office, despite a sharp drop from its historic debut last weekend.
The Universal sequel earned $18.8 million on Friday in the U.S., putting it on track for a second weekend of $60.2 million. As expected, that’s miles ahead of “The Longest Ride,” which is headed for a $13.6 million opening.
“Furious 7” — down 59% from last weekend’s staggering $147.2 million launch –- will likely become one of only a dozen movies to earn above $60 million in its sophomore weekend. The decline is in line with previous “The Fast and the Furious” installments.
And the records keep rolling in. After becoming the ninth-largest domestic opening of all time, it just crossed $200 million in only eight days, making it the fastest Universal film to reach the milestone. It took “Despicable Me 2” 11 days to hit that mark. »

Universal’s “Furious 7″ is maintaining plenty of heat at the U.S. box office with a second weekend of about $60 million at 4,004 locations, according to early estimates.
Despite the 58% decline, “Furious 7″ will become one of only a dozen movies to chalk up a second weekend above $60 million should the estimate hold.
Romance “The Longest Ride” has launched respectably for Fox with about $14 million at 3,365 locations, with $5.5 million on Friday, as the romance offers counterprogramming to the action-packed tentpole. It opened with $625,000 at 2,360 locations in the U.S. at Thursday shows starting at 8 p.m.
“Furious 7″ recorded the ninth-largest domestic opening of all time last weekend with a still-stunning $147.2 million launch, then added on $45 million in the next four days. This weekend will make it the 88th movie to cross the $250 million mark.
In addition an array of memorable stunts and action, “Furious 7″ also carries the poignancy »
