Following the first two photos from the meta adaptation of R.L. Stine's young adult horror novel series Goosebumps, we have three more photos showing off Jack Black as the beloved author. But in this story, he's a bit of a weirdo, because we learn that Stine is actually a keeper of monsters and a prisoner of his own imagination. Stine keeps the monsters in his book so they don't get unleashed, but of course, that's exactly what happens when a new kid in town (Dylan Minnette) unintentionally lets them loose. There's some recognizable monsters from the books in these photos, but we're not sure how this is going to turn out, because it looks pretty goofy, almost like a horror version of Night at the Museum. But maybe it'll be good? Here's some more photos from Rob Letterman's Goosebumps from Columbia Pictures: In his new neighborhood, teen »

Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products is poised to sign an agreement to discuss plans to build a new Fox World theme park in South Korea.
The proposed park is a venture involving Village Roadshow and the province of South Gyeongsang and will be part of a larger development known as the Undong Entertainment Complex.
South Gyeongsang is the province in south eastern South Korea that contains the major port cities of Busan and Ulsan.
Fox World Korea is the second Fox World park to be initiated by 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.
Construction in Malaysia began in December last year on a park that will feature attractions based on properties including “Ice Age,” “Rio,” “Alien vs Predator,” “Planet of the Apes” and “Night At The Museum.”
A signing ceremony of the agreements will take place in Seoul on Wednesday.

He’s already busy playing a comically menacing Pharaoh for Shawn Levy’s third Night At The Museum outing (which, given Kingsley’s presence, we’re tempted to rename Knight At The Museum), but Ben Kingsley is set for a more serious take on Egyptian royalty for Us cable channel Spike’s new series Tut.Tut is planned as the channel’s biggest production yet, and its first scripted series for eight years. It’ll shoot in Morocco and Canada and features Kingsley as Ay, the Grand Vizier to King Tutankhamen, who wields more influence than you might expect.“Who better to lead the cast than one of the greatest actors of our generation – Ben Kingsley,” says Spike’s Sharon Levy in a statement picked up by The Wrap. “The character he plays, Ay, is the true power behind the Tutankhamen throne. We are so fortunate to have an actor »
A little different from his recent efforts like The Night at the Museum series, Real Steel, and Date Night, director Shawn Levy is mixing a bit of drama with his comedy with This Is Where I Leave You. Starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, and Jane Fonda, it tells the story of a dysfunctional family forced together when their father dies. Bringing together some very talented actors, there is a lot to like about this trailer, especially watching the cast play off each other. Check it out below. Released: 12th September (Irl/U.K.) / 19th September (U.S.) »

Check out the brand new poster for This Is Where I Leave You.
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
The dramatic comedy is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development »

Six months ago, I compiled a list of movies to watch before going to the movies in 2014. It was a homework assignment for you all to become familiar with the old movies that were remade for this year, whether direct originals or early versions of the same stories retold. That was just the first part, covering only the new releases from January to June. As promised, here is part two. Looking over the second half of the year, one thing is apparent: there are fewer remakes. There are a lot of sequels, of all sizes, and I’ve avoided including the previous installments of series like Night at the Museum, Hot Tub Time Machine, The Trip, The Hobbit, Horrible Bosses, Madagascar, Dumb and Dumber, The Hunger Games, Paranormal Activity, Dolphin Tale, Cabin Fever, The Expendables, Sin City, Planes, Planet of the Apes and The Purge. Those are all givens. I also didn’t include the TV series »

Jim Gianopulos is riding a big wave of success.
The chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox — who oversees the motion picture divisions of Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., which include Fox 2000, Fox Searchlight Pictures, Fox Animation Studios, Blue Sky Studios and Fox Intl. Prods. — has presided over the release of such hits as “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (which recently opened as the top grossing film in the world), “Life of Pi,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” “Taken” and its two sequels, “12 Years a Slave” and — of course — record-breakers “Titanic” and “Avatar.”
Gianopulos will receive the Taormina Film Festival’s Arte Award »

It took a little while for America to embrace the charms of comedienne Rebel Wilson, but I think that we’re all beginning to come around. The highly enjoyable actress is rivalling Melissa McCarthy for comedic popularity right now, and today, she has joined the Sacha Baron Cohen-penned comedy Grimsby, alongside Baron Cohen and Mark Strong.
Grimsby tells the story of a Black ops spy (Mark Strong) who has to team up with his football hooligan brother (Baron Cohen) for reasons that I’m sure will be made clear by the film. Wilson joins a cast that already includes comedian Johnny Vegas, Gabourey Sidibe, and Ian McShane, which seems to indicate a welter of talent both comedic and dramatic.

One of the key narratives at the Annecy festival’s International Animation Film Market (Mifa) is the burgeoning attendance of participants from Asia. Variety spoke to Juck Somsaman from Thailand’s The Monk Studios, whose “Duck Fight: Fist of the Feather” was one of six titles selected for Mifa’s feature film pitches.
Movie animation production is growing in Thailand. Why?
The Thai film market itself is very small, but the whole Asian Pacific region, including China, is huge and demand is picking up. Resource-wise, we see a lot of growth in the skilled local artists and talents, which is the key to achieving high-quality at low cost. The number of graduates in this field has been steadily increasing year by year. The lower cost of production also lures outsourcing jobs to the region, while the regional demand for IP is increasing. Our films are created to fill the need »

After the curious case of Edge Of Tomorrow’s surprise critical popularity, Rob investigates a strange Hollywood happening…
The release of Edge Of Tomorrow - which opened in the Us this past weekend, following its bow in the UK a week earlier - has brought, not for the first time, a strange Hollywood trend to light. And it's this: do we trust big stars to make decent movies anymore?
Many people, this writer included, took a lot of convincing to venture out and see Tom Cruise in a hugely expensive sci-fi spectacular (notwithstanding the fact that Cruise has fine form in science fiction). The film in question, Edge Of Tomorrow, is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity, and based on a graphic novel with a cool title. So surely this should have been a movie which audiences were enthusiastically anticipating? Yet It didn’t seem that way, »
Personally, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve had the ‘Which sequel is better than its predecessor’ debate. We all know the scene: It’s late. You’ve just washed down The Bourne Ultimatum, or Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan, with a bottle of wine and a 12 inch pizza, and one of your number makes the statement. “That’s way better than the earlier ones!”
Cut to: several hours later, and your group will no doubt have concluded, after lengthy discussion, that the best sequels in the history of cinema are The Empire Strikes Back, The Godfather Part II, Aliens, The Dark Knight and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. What’s more, they’re absolutely right. Since the dawn of the internet, film fans have been declaring their lists of the absolute best sequels ever made, and almost without exception, those titles eventually float to the top. »

Lionsgate investors who presumed there was no more value to wring out of “The Hunger Games” beyond its final installment next year got a nice surprise last week. CEO Jon Feltheimer announced a new way to capitalize on the mega-franchise: A touring exhibition devoted to the movie will kick off next summer, the first element of a bigger plan aimed at putting the studio in the theme park business.
Indeed, blockbuster entertainment franchises are getting integrated into the parks with increasing frequency. Universal Studios Hollywood unveiled Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem in April, expanded with Super Silly Fun Land, the seaside carnival featured in the film. Up next: Universal is teaming with Warner Bros. to open Diagon Alley, a faithful re-creation of the London location from the “Harry Potter” films, on June 20.
As part of the massive expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Studios Florida built a »

You can go home again — sometimes with less drama than going to your actual home.
Five years ago, author Jonathan Tropper debuted This Is Where I Leave You at Book Expo America, and on Friday afternoon he returned to his old stomping grounds to present footage from the upcoming film version of the novel, about a combative family brought together by their father’s funeral.
The event kicked off BookCon, the new public section of the convention, and along for the ride were director Shawn Levy (Real Steel, the Night at the Museum movies) and stars Tina Fey and Jason Bateman. »

The trailer has landed for the latest literary adaptation, the Shawn Levy funeral dramedy "This is Where I Leave You" (September 12), adapted by Jonathan Tropper from his own 2009 novel. Tina Fey plays the estranged sister of three brothers (Jason Bateman, Adam Driver and Corey Stoll). The quadrille are reunited by their father's death-- only to be imprisoned by their psychologist mother (Jane Fonda), who is determined to reunite her family. “We need a new term for the tone," Tina Fey told EW. "It’s not a dark comedy—because it’s not that dark. But it’s an emotional comedy." All four siblings are struggling with the opposite sex. Mom Fey still nurtures a crush on the boy next door (Timothy Olyphant); Bateman lost both his wife and his job when his wife got together with his boss; Stoll hasn't been able to father a child; Driver brings home his »

The first trailer for Shawn Levy's comedy, This Is Where I Leave You, has been released. The movie has a great cast of actors that includes Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Corey Stoll, Jane Fonda, and Rose Byrne. This actually looks like it could be the best movie that Levy has made. That's not saying much, though, as his career consists of Night at the Museum and a bunch of other silly films. Here's the synopsis for the entertaining looking move.
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens.

The first trailer for Shawn Levy’s starry ensemble comedy, This Is Where I Leave You has landed. Baby-monitor sex, awkward silences and a few uplifting ‘caught-in-the-sprinkler’ moments take centre stage in the first preview of Shawn Levy’s (Night At The Museum, Date Night) new comedy – the story of a dysfunctional family forced back together for a funeral. Starring pretty much everyone with a funny bone, it’s a crowded two minutes. There’s Tina Fey punching Dax Sheppard… Timothy Olyphant in a blonde wig and Jane Fonda in...
