Star-Studded Film Sets Record For Worst Opening Ever

3 October 2012 7:47 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Even famous faces Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal couldn't help "Won't Back Down," which set a record over the weekend for worst film opening ever.

"Won't Back Down" took in a rough $2.6 million its opening weekend, according to Box Office Mojo, setting the record for worst opening of a film that released in over 2,500 theaters. The flick beat Rainn Wilson's "The Rocker," Drew Barrymore's 2007 romantic drama "Lucky You," Luke Wilson's family comedy "Hoot" and Jennifer Aniston's remake of "Rumor Has It" for the dubious honor.

"The Rocker" had been in the top spot since 2008.

"'Won't Back Down' wore the dunce cap last weekend, mostly because its marketing was almost non-existent," Jeff Bock, box office analyst for Exhibitor Relations told Yahoo! Movies.

The film also stars Oscar-winner Holly Hunter and focuses on two mothers fighting to transform an inner city school suffocating under bureaucratic issues. »

On The Rise 2012: 10 Actresses Poised For The Big Time

30 March 2012 1:48 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While there are still not enough good roles for women out there, particularly in mainstream Hollywood, that hasn't stopped a batch of young female stars from exploding from out of nowhere in recent years. Head-turning performances have helped launch faces like Carey Mulligan, Mia Wasikowska, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Felicity Jones and many others into the stratosphere, and the success last weekend of "The Hunger Games" has hopefully put to rest the fallacy that huge audiences won't turn up to big movies carried by a woman.

With that in mind, and hot on the heels of our ten picks for actors on the rise yesterday, we've chosen ten actresses who, while yet to be household names, have wowed audiences and casting directors in recent years, and look like strong contenders to headline the big movies of the future. Check our picks our below, and weigh in with your own tips in the comment section. »

'The Lorax' Movie: Environmental Message & SUV Spokesman

2 March 2012 12:02 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

March 2 is Dr. Seuss' birthday (he would have been 104) and also, not by coincidence, the release of "The Lorax" in theaters. "The Lorax," which was published in 1971, is Seuss' environmental fable that inspires kids to think about nature (the lovely Truffula trees) versus material goods (those trendy but unnecessary Thneeds), and the movie does a good job of translating that theme into a charming animated movie kids will love. But then the studio's marketing geniuses have to muck up the story's message by making the Lorax shill everything from SUVs to Ihop specials. Maybe we've all become desensitized to the consumerist nature of family films (I admit I had so many Happy Meal toys in my house I finally called a moratorium on McDonald's when I nearly broke an ankle tripping over a plastic Chipmunk), but there's something particularly off-putting about the Lorax shilling for so many products -- »
