'Straight Outta Compton' poster. Weekend box office: 'Straight Outta Compton' to beat weak competitors, but still far from being top blockbuster directed by black filmmaker If you thought last weekend was bad at the U.S. and Canada box office, you should see what's in store for this weekend, Aug. 28-30, '15. For starters, only one movie, F. Gary Gray's sleeper hit Straight Outta Compton, is expected to earn more than $10 million. The rest – and that includes Zac Efron, Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan, and the Power of (Christian) Prayer – will perform quite powerlessly indeed. In case Straight Outta Compton reaches the box office gurus' estimated $15 million, it will get close to the $140 million mark. Bear in mind there's no guarantee that will happen; despite basically no competition, the drop-off rate of Gray's hip hopping film was steeper than expected last weekend.

Hitting theaters Friday, “We Are Your Friends” is a bro-tastic ode to electronic music and friendship in the San Fernando Valley — but it’s hard to miss Emily Ratajkowski, Zac Efron‘s leading lady in the film. Ratajkowski, the breakout star of Robin Thicke‘s 2013 music video for “Blurred Lines” and star of this summer’s “Entourage,” plays an assistant to Wes Bentley‘s headlining DJ James — and the object of desire for Efron’s aspiring DJ, Cole. Ratajkowski never gets near the turntables, so TheWrap inquired about her favorite music ahead of the movie’s release — and we were pleasantly surprised by her taste. »

Charming and funny, a wonderfully sweet and silly mashup of spy stuff and high-school comedies, like if John Hughes made a James Bond movie. I’m “biast” (pro): desperate for movies about girls and women

Here we go again. After Lila & Eve earlier this summer, here’s another example of a film that, if it were about a guy, would have gotten a big splashy release instead of being shuffled off to the land of VOD. (Arguably, American Ultra is sort of a guy version of this. That opened on 2,778 screens in North America. Barely Lethal opened on 22… after it had been on VOD for a month.) The fact that is stars Hailee Steinfeld, one of the most interesting young actors working today, and in a role that shows off comedy chops I don »

Emily Ratajkowski is best known for showing off her amazing body in the "Blurred Lines" music video, and now she's giving her film career a real try. With supporting roles in "Gone Girl" and "Entourage" under her belt, she's taking on her biggest role yet, opposite Zac Efron, in "We Are Your Friends."

Here is a fatuous film about DJ-ing and clubbing in Los Angeles, whose tired music-video cliches and Entourage-style bro-love would be wearisome at the best of times. But coming so soon after Mia Hansen-Løve’s genuinely passionate movie Eden, on the same subject, it really is dispiriting.

We Are Your Friends is a new drama based around aspiring DJ Cole Carter (Zac Efron), and his group of friends; a gang of twenty-somethings living life to the full. Set in the San Fernando Valley, which the film tells us is famous for its intense heat, the porn industry and the best sushi in town, We Are Your Friends is a tale of forbidden love and finding the right path in life. The film is directed by Max Joseph, who is mostly known for his work on the TV series Catfish, along with Nev Schulman. He makes his feature-directing debut with We Are Your Friends, and also co-wrote the screenplay with Meaghan Oppenheimer.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a movie suffering from a more devastating identity crisis this year than Max Joseph’s We Are Your Friends - an inspirational story looking to capitalize on society’s current obsession with “Electronic Dance Music.” You’d think it’d be a poor man’s Entourage story, where sexy Zac Efron turns rags to riches by mastering GarageBand’s loop feature, but if that’s your assumption, you’re Deathly wrong.
Joseph and co-writer Meaghan Oppenheimer are all over the map with their sloppy attempt to dissect the house DJ culture, and even more egregious is their failure to inspire vocal individuality in the minds of young onlookers. It’s a movie that’s supposed to get your ambitious drive pumping, yet continually finds itself in need of resuscitation by any means possible (aka the objectification of Emily Ratajkowski). What can I say: eat, »

It’s official: Ballers is Entourage for guys with NFL Sunday Ticket packages. After nine weeks of giving this show the benefit of the doubt, Ballers’ full transformation into an Entourage clone took place during its season finale, “Flamingos” — and I’m kinda pissed off about it. I thought Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, and the Entourage brain trust behind this show might’ve learned from their past mistakes in order to give audiences a view of the professional sports world that wasn’t another bro-tastic, orgiastic spectacle. But considering how the show ended on an appallingly high note, practically erasing all the conflict that existed throughout the season with one mighty wipe, Ballers unfortunately showed its true, extravagant colors.Let’s start with Spencer and Joe. For a minute there, the show made us believe that their partnership would end quite messily. Even though Old Man Anderson has gone on »

Starz suffers from a bit of middle-child syndrome, so the channel is within its rights to have boasted about “Survivor’s Remorse,” a superior version of material covered in HBO’s similarly themed “Ballers.” Both shows owe a debt to “Entourage,” but the Starz series — a.k.a. “LeBrontourage,” thanks to having LeBron James on its producing team — stands pretty firmly on its own, deriving its fair share of laughs from the ridiculous situations that come with being young, famous and filthy rich. The show has also developed a strong ensemble, making it a pleasant lark (the awful title notwithstanding) that viewers should enjoy guilt-free.

NBC is developing House Of The Rising Sin, a multi-generational family drama from Scandal co-executive producer Judy Smith, who was the inspiration for the lead character in Shonda Rhimes’ Washington drama. Written by Jeremy Miller and Daniel Cohn (Entourage), House Of The Rising Sin, from 20th TV, is set against a backdrop of politics and the eclectic food scene and vibrant music of New Orleans and revolves around three generations of a corrupt political family which has… »
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Studiocanal comes the romantic drama We Are Your Friends.
The film marks Max Joseph’s (MTV’s “Catfish: The TV Show”) feature film directorial debut, and stars Zac Efron (“Neighbors”), Emily Ratajkowski (“Entourage,” “Gone Girl”), and Wes Bentley (“Interstellar,” “The Hunger Games”).
We Are Your Friends is about what it takes to find your voice. Set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, an aspiring 23-year-old DJ named Cole (Efron) spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James (Bentley), who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie (Ratajkowski). With Cole’s forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unraveling, he must choose between love, »

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' box office: Bigger domestic flop than expected? Before I address the box office debacle of Warner Bros.' The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I'd like remark upon the fact that 2015 has been a notable year at the North American box office. That's when the dinosaurs of Jurassic World smashed Hulk and his fellow Halloween-costumed Marvel superheroes of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And smashed them good: $636.73 million vs. $457.52 million. (See also: 'Jurassic World' beating 'The Avengers' worldwide and domestically?) At least in part for sentimental (or just downright morbid) reasons – Paul Walker's death in a car accident in late 2013 – Furious 7 has become by far the highest-grossing The Fast and the Furious movie in the U.S. and Canada: $351.03 million.

Nine years ago this month, HBO's hit series Deadwood aired its last episode after just three seasons on the air. Ever since then, fans have been clamoring for the show to return in some form, with series star Kim Dickens saying last year that Deadwood creator David Milch still wants to give the beloved Western series a proper ending. Earlier today, star Garret Dillahunt told his Twitter followers that he's heard rumors of a Deadwood movie. Here's what the actor had to say on his Twitter page.
TV Line also reports that HBO is actually in negotiations with David Milch for a movie that will wrap up the story line, though it is not stated whether or not this will be a movie that airs on HBO or in theaters, »
HBO is addressing a Deadwood actor's tweet regarding the possibility of a film version of the series. On Wednesday, Garret Dillahunt, who played Jack McCall on the Western drama, tweeted: "So uh....I'm hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie. #Everybodypray." He followed that with another tweet in which he mocked the channel for this summer's Entourage movie and said Deadwood fans deserve "some closure."
