Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

'School of Rock' Director Takes on 'The One and Only Ivan'

21 July 2014 8:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker Mike White is in talks with Walt Disney Pictures to write and direct The One and Only Ivan.

We first reported on the project back in April, when Disney was in negotiations to acquire the screen rights for Katherine Applegate's 2011 novel, which won the Newberry Medal. The story follows a silverback gorilla named Ivan, who lives in captivity at a massive shopping center with an elephant named Stella and a stray dog named Bob. While Ivan previously couldn't remember any part of his life after he was brought to this shopping center, he begins to recall vivid memories after a baby elephant arrives. Ivan teams up with Stella and Bob to escape and return this baby elephant back to the wild.

Katherine Applegate based her story on a real life gorilla named Ivan, who spent 27 years in a Washington D.C. shopping mall before being transferred to the Atlanta zoo. »

Jack Black talks 'Goosebumps' movie

17 July 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

In the upcoming Goosebumps movie, comedian Jack Black stars as spooky storyteller R. L. Stine, whose ghoulish creatures—previously confined to his bestselling children’s books—are unexpectedly brought to life by a teen neighbor (Scandal first kid Dylan Minnette). With the help of Stine’s daughter, Hannah (Israeli actress Odeya Rush), a race ensues to capture the author’s manic monsters from wrecking havoc on their small town. It’s a comedy-fueled horror (due Aug. 7, 2015) that promises to channel Goosebumps’ kid-approved brand of scary while pleasing grownup loyalists of the 1990s franchise.

Video: Screenwriter Mike White explains his creative process

8 July 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Mike White, the screenwriter behind School of Rock and Nacho Libre, has a very specific creative process. For starters, he’s up at 6 a.m. to start writing, and unlike a lot of writers, by 5 p.m., he’s said goodbye to his laptop for the day.

In an episode of the YouTube series Academy Originals from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences, White explains why it is that he doesn’t write at night, and how he prepares for his morning bursts of creativity. (Hint: It involves sleep and yoga.) »

Jason Sudeikis In The Crosshairs For ‘Loomis Fargo’

26 June 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s the night of the tough-to-type surnames as comedy star Jason Sudeikis is to appear alongside his Campaign compadre Zach Galafianakis and Kristen Wiig in a crime drama formerly known as Loomis Fargo, currently untitled. I would have thought this is being changed due to parallels with Fargo and it isn’t clear if it’s a place or the main character’s handle. Either way, the “true” story follows an amateur heister who is betrayed by his fellows before plotting vengeance from Mexico. The actor will play an assassin, presumably a highly affable one based on his turn in Horrible Bosses (the sequel to which, inexplicably, is on the way).

Just as Wiig has been showing her serious side in The Skeleton Twins, so We’Re The Millers lead Sudeikis is getting a chance to broaden his horizons and by the looks of things director Jared Hess is »

From Tina to Tots: Catch Up with the Cast of Napoleon Dynamite 10 Years Later

11 June 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Napoleon Dynamite turns 10 on Wednesday, so we "guess you can say things are getting pretty serious." On June 11, 2004, the delightfully strange tale of an awkward yet confident high-schooler dancing his way through life hit theaters. Made on a budget of $400,000, the film went on to earn $44 million at the box office and has grown into a comedy classic, thanks to its quirky characters, ridiculously quotable conversations and a finicky llama named Tina. School elections and tater tots will never be the same thanks to Napoleon and the rest of the crew. To celebrate the movie's anniversary, the cast reunited at »

5 Secret Goosebumps Movies Starring Jack Black

24 April 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jack Black has been tapped to play R.L. Stine, author of the beloved 'Goosebumps' series, in the film adaptation. Instead of using one of the many books for the movie franchise, it turns out Stine's monsters are real and he can only contain them by writing them into novels that double as prisons. You can read the whole synopsis over here. Sure many — sane — people would look such a meta concept and ponder if humanity has gone too far. Well I say no! In fact, we've not gone far enough into the meta wormhole! What if Jack Black as R.L. Stine as Jack Black had to keep the monsters of Goosebumps contained by being in a series of mediocre films? What If This Explains Jack Black'S Whole Career? In fact, I went back with a special Goosebumps-light* to check for anomalies and it's totally true! Jack Black »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2009

19 February 2014 5:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 20 Feb 2014 - 05:40

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...

The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.

Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

Jack Black & James Marsden Board ‘The D-Train’

10 February 2014 10:18 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jack Black is set to reunite with School Of Rock and Nacho Libre writer, Mike White. The two will be joined by X-men’s James Marsden for The D-train. The film will see Jack Black as the head of a school reunion committee who will stop at absolutely nothing to make sure his classes’ most popular student attends. That student will be played by Marsden, who has become a star of TV commercials. Nat Faxon and White will also star, presumably as two other ex students.

Directing the feature will be Jarred Paul and Andrew Mogel, the screenwriters of Yes Man. This will be their directorial debut. School Of Rock is still one of my favourite comedies after surprising me all those years ago, but that was helmed by Richard Linklater, a man with much more experience. Hopefully Paul and Mogel have been chosen well as the plot seems to write itself, »

The story centers on a high school reunion committee chairman (Jack Black), who is still struggling for acceptance following his high school days.

Jack Black And James Marsden Going Back To High School For D-Train

10 February 2014 3:44 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

For a while, it seemed as though Jack Black was becoming the premier comic leading man of his generation, and with a couple of more hits that coronation would have been complete. Instead, Black stumbled with Gulliver.s Travels and subsequently disappeared from leading man roles. He was excellent in 2011.s little-seen Bernie but that wasn.t much of a hit, and Black has busied himself since then with television appearances and voice work. Even if you were growing tired of his schtick, you might have missed him a little. Fortunately, it looks like Black is about to return, collaborating with his School Of Rock and Nacho Libre mate Mike White for The D-Train. According to THR, Black will play a sadsack high school reunion chairman tasked with finding the most popular guy from his graduating class and bring him back to his hometown. Presumably that.s the character in »

WWE: 10 Most Shocking Unmaskings

10 February 2014 10:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


There have been many instances in WWE history where masks were used to humiliate wrestlers. In some cases, masks were used to protect the identity of a performer too. Sometimes they were done for blatant comedic purposes, which is certainly fine for a company that bills itself as sports entertainment.

In the 50 year history of WWE, there have been some masked wrestlers. However, it’s not like there have been that many or that they have been used in major storylines too often. Part of the appeal of a wrestler is their ability to make facial expressions. If fans can see a wrestler’s face they can know if that person is happy, sad, angry, scared or whatever kind of reaction they are going for.

The mask in pro wrestling is usually something that is common in Mexican wrestling. Men wear masks to protect their identity. Most of time »

Duck Dynasty returned on Wednesday night for its season five premiere, which introduced a new face in Rebecca Robertson and featured two new episodes.

Meet Rebecca Robertson

Rebecca, who was adopted by Willie and Korie 10 years ago, won them over when they fostered while she was an exchange student. Now 24, she’s flying back to Louisiana after spending two years interning in fashion in Los Angeles.

When Willie and his son John Luke pick her up at the airport, she gives her dad a pair of fashion-forward jeans.

While Korie and the women decorate the home for Rebecca’s homecoming party, Willie worries about Rebecca never moving back out of the house once she settles in and compares her to Jep. When Jase hears Jep’s wife Jessica complaining that none of the men are helping decorate, he shares with her his own brand of party wisdom.

And because everyone seems to hang on the Robertson’s every word, let’s recap the premiere (and the follow-up episode) by counting down the shows’ best quotes.
