Disney’s ‘Goldie & Bear’ Mixes Fairy Tales With Digital Distribution

20 August 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Walt Disney wants to put a modern twist on classic fairy tales, and not just in the way they are depicted on the TV screen.

When the company’s Disney Junior cable network launches “Goldie & Bear,” an updated take on everything from “The Three Bears” to “Jack and the Beanstalk,” it will do so by making the series available on September 12 via its Watch Disney Junior streaming-video mobile app to users who subscribe to the cable network, and then on TV about two months later, creating a vehicle that blends a taste of the Brothers Grimm with video-on-demand.

“We are trying to keep these classic stories, and classic characters, in kids’ minds,” said Nancy Kanter, executive vice president of original programming and general manager of Disney Junior Worldwide. With school systems placing more emphasis on math, science and analysis of documents, perhaps there’s less room for Tom Thumb and Hansel and Gretel? »

Adam Sandler: still scraping the bottom of the comedy barrel

11 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Pixels, the latest film from Hollywood’s falling star, is another low-brow high-concept comedy that’s lazy, juvenile and simply not funny

Regular readers of these pages will know how loudly I kick and scream and bitch and moan whenever the subject of Woody Allen’s ongoing creative bankruptcy comes up, but the Woodster’s shortcomings in his hastening, deepening, darkening dotage are as nothing to those of Adam Sandler. Sandler reached the bottom of the bottom of the barrel long ago, yet he has always acted – and been remunerated – as if said destination were the summit of Everest. I skipped Woody’s latest, Irrational Man, mainly because life’s just too short, but for the benefit of my beloved readers I stood firm and intrepid on the battlefield and took the blunt force of Sandler’s latest fiasco full in the face. You’re welcome!

Tangerine – The Review

7 August 2015 5:54 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Stephen Jones

If nothing else, Tangerine achieves something I’ve been hoping to see for years; the film stars two transgendered characters, but the story isn’t About them being transgendered. Their gender identity isn’t their entire being, it doesn’t consume their entire lives, and isn’t the central inciting factor for the story told about them. That alone makes Sin-Dee and Alexandra two of the most realistic, fleshed out trans characters I’ve seen in a movie.

The movie as a whole could’ve done with a lot more of them. Both the characters and their actresses (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor, respectively) give their scenes a lot of energy and vibrancy, and it sort of dies off whenever they’re not on screen. Like whenever the cab driver’s story is the focus. I’m going to forget about the cab driver for a bit, »

Adam Sandler Defended by Director Dennis Dugan: "How F--king Dare Anybody Say That He's a S---ty" Comic!

28 July 2015 6:49 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Dennis Dugan and Adam Sandler are a comedy dream team, according to the director himself. The two have worked together on a number of films, including Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, You Don't Mess With the Zohan, Grown Ups, Just Go with It, Jack and Jill and Grown Ups 2. Sandler has been slammed in the press after the poor performance of Pixels, which didn't meet box office expectations in its opening weekend and was savaged by critics and moviegoers alike. Dugan, however, has Sandler's back, telling The Hollywood Reporter, "How f--king dare anybody say that he's a s---ty [entertainer]!" Pixels is playing in 42 percent of the international marketplace, where it »

Adam "DJ Am" Goldstein helped revolutionize DJing before his tragic 2009 death, but his life was also filled with tragedy and depression. Kevin Kerslake examined Goldstein's rise and fall in the 2015 documentary As I Am: The Life and Times of DJ Am – and now fans can help fund the project's wide release through an Indiegogo campaign featuring numerous donator rewards from the DJ's personal collection.

Adam Sandler: 5 Reasons He’s No Longer a Movie Star

27 July 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Is it game over for Adam Sandler? His new comedy, “Pixels,” opened over the weekend to a mediocre $24 million, a disappointing result for the $88 million project. Sandler’s latest box office lemon comes on the heels of “The Cobbler” (Sandler’s lowest-grossing title ever, which opened to just $24,000 from 20 theaters in March), 2014’s “Blended” (the Drew Barrymore reteaming that mustered $46 million), “That’s My Boy” (a pairing with Andy Samberg that eked out $37 million) and “Jack and Jill” (the cross-dressing comedy that landed some of the worst reviews of his career). His only recent hits have been the 2013 sequel to “Grown Ups” (which netted $133 million) and “Hotel Transylvania,” an animated film that didn’t require him to be onscreen.

Here’s how Sandler’s box office career went from $4 billion in ticket sales to ice cold.

Grown Ups Director Rips Critics And Defends Adam Sandler In Foul-Mouthed Tirade

27 July 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Adam Sandler has done it again. And by "it," we mean incite the wrath of movies critics everywhere. Pixels . his latest film under his Happy Madison production company . lost the top spot at the weekend box office to Ant-Man, currently sits at 18% from 104 reviews, and has taken a beating on social media. Despite this seeming failure of a film, however, Sandler has one person in his camp, Dennis Dugan, and he has some choice words for Sandler haters.  Dugan directed Sandler in Happy Gilmore before reuniting with the actor for Big Daddy, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Grown Ups, You Don.t Mess With Zohan, Jack and Jill, and Grown Ups 2. In other words, he.s been hearing all the awful stuff critics have been saying about his films with Sandler for years. He.s garnered quite a bit of animosity, and in a recent interview with »

Weekend Box Office: Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Out Runs Sandler's 'Pixels' for #1

26 July 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

My, oh my, at one point Adam Sandler was a comedian that could do no wrong, at least in the eyes of the general moviegoing audience, but the stench has finally caught on and people are looking the other way. Sandler's films used to be easy $40 million openers and $100+ overall domestic releases, and he did manage as much in 2013 with Grown Ups 2, but other than that sophomoric effort it's been numbers like $14.2m (Blended), $13.4m (That's My Boy) and $25m (Jack and Jill) over the last few years and now Pixels, carrying an $88 million budget, can't even secure the top spot over the second weekend of a less-than-stellar Marvel release. Ant-Man takes the top spot again, dipping a rather hefty 56% for a second weekend $24.9 million, bringing its cume to $106 million. As for Pixels, it opened with $24 million and a "B" CinemaScore. I guess there is a shelf life for subpar comedy, »

Friday Box Office: Sandler's 'Pixels' Gets Mixed Response, 'Paper Towns,' 'Southpaw' Not Far Behind

25 July 2015 10:44 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Despite near universal scorn from the critics, Adam Sandler's latest comedy "Pixels" (Sony), his first release since announcing a four-film production and playoff deal with Netflix, topped Friday's grosses with a $9.2 million take. Overall, the Top Ten totaled around $46 million, on par with the same weekend last year. It's a glass half-full/half-empty win for "Pixels." On the plus side, apart from its one-day victory, Sony is reporting about $22 million yesterday in 56 foreign markets (about 40% of the world), with huge numbers in Latin America and mainly equal with "Ant-Man" openings in Europe. The number domestically is also in the same $9 million range as his "Jack and Jill" and "Just Go With It" among his other lead roles in the last five years, double last year's "Blended" and the earlier "That's My Boy," lagging behind only "Grown Ups 2" ($16.3 million) since 2010.

Marvel vs. Pixels: Weekend Box Office Will Be Fight to the Death Between Sandler Critical Dud and Ant-Man Rudd

24 July 2015 11:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

Pixels review – just another Adam Sandler movie, despite impressive CGI

24 July 2015 6:44 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Don’t be fooled by the posters: like most Sandler films Pixels is a casually sexist, awkwardly structured, bro-centric comedy, starring some of Sandler’s buddies

The posters for Pixels are alluring, with characters from classic arcade games hovering over some of the world’s major cities. The most eye-catching one boasts a giant Pac-Man, mouth wide open, devouring San Francisco. What these adverts fail to get across is that Pixels is an Adam Sandler movie. Pity the poor souls who go into the comedy blockbuster thinking they’ve signed up to watch The Lego Movie by way of Independence Day. They’ll be disappointed.

Being a Sandler movie from the actor’s own Happy Madison Productions (responsible for dreck like Jack and Jill and Paul Blart: Mall Cop), Pixels is a casually sexist, awkwardly structured, bro-centric comedy, starring some of Sandler’s buddies. The only difference this time is »

Adam Sandler’s ‘Pixels’ Gets Crushed by Critics: Here Are 10 of the Worst Reviews

23 July 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Adam Sandler is on a roll — in the worst way possible. “Pixels” marks his latest dud, which is not only being bashed by critics, it may very well land at the box office with a resounding thud. Sony’s $85 million investment has been downgraded from making an expected $58 million splash opening weekend to a $25 million crash. A 16 percent approval rating from critics counted, so far, on Rotten Tomatoes won’t help much. With a steady string of recent misfires including “The Cobbler,” “Blended,” “Grown-Ups 2,” “That’s My Boy” and “Jack and Jill,” neither will Sandler’s reputation, or that »

Review: 'Pixels' falls apart before Adam Sandler is even a factor in things

22 July 2015 10:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nope. Chris Columbus appears to be at war with the Happy Madison team at almost every moment in this film, and unfortunately, inertia eventually wins. By now, you have to be aware of the premise for the film. Sony has done a tremendous job of selling the idea. Aliens, after being exposed to our video games from the '80s, have decided to invade the Earth, seeing the games as a challenge of war. They send those familiar game icons against us, and three former arcade champions are forced to defend the Earth using their arcade skills. Fine. I have no problem with the idea. I even like the basic character set-up. These arcade champions, treated like young gods in the opening flashback of the film, all find themselves adrift as adults. Brenner (Adam Sandler) is working on the movie's version of the Geek Squad from Best Buy. Ludlow (Josh Gad »

‘Pixels’ Review: Pac Man And Donkey Kong Are Back, But Does Anyone Care?

22 July 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The thought of an Adam Sandler movie in which he battles video game characters from the 80s didn’t exactly set my heart spinning. But that is exactly what we have in Pixels, and when I say it is at least better than 99% of his recent dreary comedies of the past decade (Jack And Jill, That’s My Boy, Grown Ups 1 and  2, The Cobbler, Blended, etc etc) or so, it may be minor praise but what do you want from an obvious kids’ summer time-waster like this?  If I were 10 years… »

Watch: Dracula's a Granddaddy in New 'Hotel Transylvania 2' Trailer

17 June 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While certainly nowhere near as excruciating as other Adam Sandler/Happy Madison Productions like, say, the Grown Up movies, That's My Boy or Jack and Jill (not to mention The Ridiculous Six, most likely), I didn't really care for 2012's Hotel Transylvania. It was too noisy, busy, heartless and overtly juvenile for my tastes. But like many points in my life, I'm in the minority because lots of people saw it and now we got a sequel, Hotel Transylvania 2, which just got a new trailer. The Drac Pack is back, although we now find ourselves some years later. Dracula (Sandler) is now a grandfather to his daughter Mavis' (Selena Gomez) son Dennis, although the child is well into his toddler years and still hasn't formed in vampire traits. Worried he won't come into his potential, he and his fellow Pack members Frank (Kevin James), Wayne (Steve Buscemi), Murray (Keegan-Michael Key, »

Martha Thomases: The Usual Gang

8 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Are you watching the last season of Mad Men? It’s our last chance to see Jon Hamm in so many crisp suits – at least for a while.

It’s also a weird sort of time travel, at least for me. I figure that I’m about the same age as Sally, the oldest daughter in Don Draper’s (i.e. Hamm’s) family, so I’m watching events I lived through, but from the perspective of my parents, if they were stunningly beautiful, not Jewish, lived in New York, and worked in advertising in the 1960s.

In the ten fictional years since the show started, we’ve watched the turbulent 1960s from the point of view of successful, media-savvy adults, mostly men. We saw Kennedy get elected and assassinated. We saw the Civil Rights movement and Woodstock. We saw Americans land on the moon.

This season, it’s 1970. And »

New Movie Review: Al Pacino is a Rock Star in 'Danny Collins' Movie

25 March 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

We loved Al Pacino so much in his new film Danny Collins we’re forgiving him for his part in Adam Sandler’s Jack and Jill.  Pacino is the rock star of acting, and in Danny Collins he proves it once again with the help of an awesome ensemble. Danny Collins is one of those rare movies where everything works well together from the superb acting, a heart-felt story and the soundtrack of John Lennon classics which plays hand-in-hand with the story.

SXSW: Katie Holmes on Playing Bipolar in the Drama ‘Mania Days’

15 March 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When she was younger, Katie Holmes offset the fame she achieved from the 1998 TV series “Dawson’s Creek” by appearing in smaller films like 2000’s “Wonder Boys” and 2003’s “Pieces of April.” On Sunday night at the SXSW Film Festival, Holmes returns to those indie roots with the premiere of “Mania Days,” in which she plays a bipolar poet who falls in love with a man that shares her disorder.

The drama, which is set in and out of a psychiatric hospital, was made for less than $1 million, and Holmes worked for SAG-aftra’s low-budget minimum pay. The film’s writer-director Paul Dalio based the movie on his own experiences, after he was diagnosed with manic depression as a teenager.

“I always thought it was going to be a hard project to pull off, because it was a character that was very different than anyone I played before,” Holmes said »

Film Review: ‘Danny Collins’

9 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With his tufts of gravity-defying, shoe-polish hair and burnt-orange tan, Al Pacino has been sporting the look of a glammer-than-thou aging rock star for so long now that it’s only fitting he’s finally gotten around to playing one — which he does, exceedingly well, in “Danny Collins.” For his directorial debut, screenwriter Dan Fogelman has crafted a familiar late-in-life redemption narrative, made surprisingly palatable by Pacino’s winning comic bravado, a superb supporting cast, and currents of real feeling that cut through the expected bromides about the emptiness of fortune and fame. Though it’s unlikely to score quite the same home run with the Social Security crowd as the Fogelman-scripted “Last Vegas” did ($134 million worldwide), this March 20 opener should leave the staff of new distributor Bleecker Street humming a happy tune.

This is the second time in a year that Pacino has played a celebrated star in the throes of an identity crisis. »
