‘One Direction: This Is Us’ movie weekend box office: One of steepest Friday-to-Saturday drops ever (photo: One Direction members Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Louis Tomlinson) The 3D concert movie One Direction: This Is Us failed to get even close to the $20 million mark at the North American box office this Labor Day weekend (Fri-Sun) despite relatively strong opening-day grosses. Featuring One Direction band members Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson, and directed by Morgan Spurlock, whose Super Size Me was shortlisted for the 2004 Best Documentary Feature Academy Award, One Direction: This Is Us debuted at 2,735 locations, pulling in a not inconsiderable $8.9 million on Thursday evening / Friday, August 29-30, 2013, which should have meant approximately $20 million by Sunday evening — especially taking into account that Monday is a national holiday. But it was not meant to be. Whereas Justin Bieber: Never Say Never »

Trevor Hogg chats with Primetime Emmy-nominee Peter James about his career and the art of cinematography...
“My father was a house painter and my mother worked at the school canteen; she was a hairdresser as a young girl during the war,” recalls Peter James of his childhood growing up in Sydney, Australia. “We didn’t even have a record player in the house. We didn’t get a black and white TV until 1963.” The prospects for the teenager did not look good until his cousin Jon Cleary, a prolific novelist who had an Oscar nominated adaptation called The Sundowners (1960) produced, intervened. “He had written several film scripts and asked my parents, ‘What is Peter going to do when he finishes school?’ I was only 15. They said, ‘He’s hopeless. He can’t read or write.’ In fact I’m dyslectic. The word dyslectic hadn’t been invented in those days. »
The NFL Draft was held just two weeks ago, and while it is tempting to just spend the rest of this story talking about all the surprise picks and equally surprising snubs, this is Cinema Blend, not Nick.s Football Blog. Luckily, the Draft is where production began on Ivan Reitman.s next film, the football comedy Draft Day, which added a slew of actors just before the Draft started. If you.re like me, you figured that the film.s casting process was over, but that isn.t the case at all. Superman has joined the film, or at least Smallville.s Tom Welling has, according to Deadline. Welling hasn.t been in a feature film since the one-two punch of 2005.s Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and the remake of The Fog, but he appeared for ten seasons as Clark Kent on CW.s Smallville, and he.ll »

Yesterday, the first trailer for Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups 2" came along, and it reminded many of us that Taylor Lautner - who has a cameo in the film as an uber-macho frat boy - is a pretty funny dude ... a whole lot funnier than his "Twilight Saga" counterpart Jacob Black at least. He's only done a handful of comedic films so far ("Cheaper By The Dozen 2" and "Valentine's Day" among them), but even so Taylor Lautner's still got a pretty nice little funny bone on display in his resume. It's a bit of a shame that he's not done more of this just yet, so in hopes that this "Grown Ups 2" cameo business might just steer him further into the comedy movie fold from here on out, here's a look back at some of the most Lol-worthy Tay Tay times to-date.
