'Lemony' wedged in first

20 December 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Paramount's Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events debuted with a sweet estimate of $30.2 million to take first place at the boxoffice on the weekend before Christmas. The Jim Carrey starrer, based on the books by Daniel Handler and directed by Brad Silberling, enticed families away from shopping and other holiday festivities to deliver the biggest opening in December for a family-targeted feature. Warner Bros. Pictures' Ocean's Twelve was swimming in the second spot with an estimated $18.3 million, down a steep 53% in its sophomore frame. The 10-day total for the A-list ensemble sequel is an estimated $68.7 million, a slim $3 million behind Ocean's Eleven for the same period. Sony's Spanglish, a James L. Brooks-directed comedy-drama starring Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni, debuted in the third spot with a moderate estimate of $9 million, a little below expectations. 20th Century Fox's Flight of the Phoenix was the session's only other wide release. But the remake of the 1965 film, starring Dennis Quaid and Giovanni Ribisi, never achieved liftoff at the boxoffice as the adventure film opened to a discouraging $5.2 million and eighth place. »

Boxoffice preview: Families make 'Lemony' pledge

17 December 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Paramount Pictures and Sony Pictures are betting that the star power of Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler is enough to lure people away from the shopping mall this weekend even though the Christmas rush is still on. With only a week left before the holiday, Paramount's Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events bows against Sony's romantic comedy-drama Spanglish today. And 20th Century Fox counters with its action-adventure remake Flight of the Phoenix. Set to open in 3,620 theaters, Lemony Snicket, a co-production with DreamWorks Pictures, reimagines the first three books of the wildly popular series by Daniel Handler. The dark, fantastical adventure showcases Carrey as the evil Count Olaf, who is charged with the care of three children after their parents die in a fire. The film from director Brad Silberling (Moonlight Mile, City of Angels) saw a slew of musical chairs before it was locked last year. Helmer Barry Sonnenfeld and producer Scott Rudin initially were on board but left because of budget cuts. DreamWorks then joined, bringing Silberling with it. Co-starring Meryl Streep and Jude Law, the PG-rated Lemony should do a wide range of business, bringing in young children and their families. Insiders place the film's opening at $30 million-plus. »

Sideways Dominates Golden Globe Nominations

13 December 2004 | IMDb News

On the heels of critics awards from both New York and Los Angeles, the indie comedy Sideways dominated this year's Golden Globe nominations with a field-best seven nominations. The Alexander Payne wine-country flick nabbed Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Score nominations along with nods for actors Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, and Virginia Madsen, making it the movie to beat at this year's Globes, though it's competing mainly in comedy categories. The heavyweight over on the dramatic side was Martin Scorsese's The Aviator, which was awarded with six nominations, including Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio (as Howard Hughes) and Best Supporting Actress for Cate Blanchett (as Katharine Hepburn). Million Dollar Baby, Finding Neverland, and Closer were right behind with five nominations apiece.

The man of the hour, however, was neither Payne nor Scorsese but Jamie Foxx, who received an unprecedented three nominations, for Ray, Collateral, and the TV movie Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story. Receiving little or no love from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were Spanglish (only a Best Score nomination) and The Passion of the Christ, which while ineligible for the Best Film . Drama award but allowed to compete in all other categories, was passed over entirely.

On the television side, the gals of Sex and the City, who were longtime Globe favorites, had to make room for some Desperate Housewives, as the ABC breakout hit scored five nominations (the best for any TV show), including four acting nods for its titular housewives (only Eva Longoria was left out in the cold). HBO scored big with TV movie The Life and Death of Peter Sellers and its perennial awards favorite The Sopranos, though Sex and the City only received two nods for its final season. The Golden Globes will be handed out on Sunday, January 16th, where Robin Williams is set to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Sandler Beaten Up in Love Scene with Tea

7 December 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Adam Sandler's latest love scene with his onscreen wife Tea Leoni was a painful experience - he was beaten up in bed. The scene in Spanglish called for Leoni, who is married to David Duchovny in real life, to pound on the Happy Gilmore star's chest during her climax - and the actress took the role to heart. Sandler recalls, "It was hurting. The camera kept rolling and Tea kept whacking. It did hurt my chest. After take six she was still going for it. My make-up girl would have to run in between takes and put flesh color make-up back on my chest." »

Homeowner To Take Columbia To Court Over Filming Damage

11 November 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Bosses at Columbia Pictures in Hollywood are facing an expensive legal battle after a jeweler's beachfront home was wrecked by a film crew. Yossi Dina rented out his Malibu, California, home to Columbia studio chiefs for Adam Sandler's new film Spanglish but he was horrified when the crew wrecked furnishings and walls to the tune of an alleged $76,000. Speaking exclusively to American court show Celebrity Justice, he says, "I couldn't believe they would leave it the way they left it. I was ready to cry." Outraged by the damage and by studio bosses' reluctance to pay the full amount for repairs on the home, which was formerly owned by singer Al Jolson, Dina is taking the studio heads to court. He adds, "I'm very angry. It's ridiculous. I feel insulted." Dina is demanding legal costs and a further $200,000 for lost income he could have made renting out the property this summer. »

Leoni sees 'Jane' for Columbia Pics

22 July 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Tea Leoni is going to be having some Fun With Dick and Jane. The actress is in negotiations to take the place of Cameron Diaz, who had originally been cast in the Columbia Pictures project but is now stepping aside because of a scheduling conflict arising from a change of dates. Leoni will play the role of Jane in the remake of the 1977 comedy, which has been updated to revolve around a spokesman for a big company who finds himself jobless and an outcast following some dodgy extracurricular activities. In the original film, Jane Fonda and George Segal played an upper-middle-class couple that turned to pulling heists to pay their bills. Brian Grazer is producing for Imagine Entertainment. Leoni recently completed Spanglish for Columbia and director James L. Brooks. Her credits include House of D, in which she co-starred with husband David Duchovny. Leoni is repped by UTA, Mosaic Media and attorney Barry Hirsch. »
