New clip from Hotel Transylvania 2

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its Us release later this month, Sony has debuted a new clip from the upcoming animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 2 featuring Johnny and Mavis showing off their BMX skills.

Drac’s pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 2! Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania… Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, »

Hotel Transylvania 2 Gets A New Trailer

2 September 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Hotel Transylvania has gone through several changes since Johnny first stumbled onto it: the hotel is now open to human guests. Mavis and Johnny have a baby boy named Dennis, whose lack of any vampire abilities worries his grandfather, Dracula. When Mavis and Johnny go on a visit to Johnny’s parents Mike and Linda, Dracula calls his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne, Griffin and Blobbie, to help him put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. Later, Dracula’s father, Vlad, unexpectedly visits the hotel and, to his dissatisfaction, finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure-blood vampire and that Hotel Transylvania now accepts humans. The new movie stars Adam Sandler, Andy  [ Read More ]

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.

'Pixels' Bombs: Is It Game Over for Adam Sandler? ​

26 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Nobody expected "Pixels," Adam Sandler's homage to Pac-Man and other vintage video games, to gobble up dollars the way Sandler's movies used to. Yet "Pixels" still disappointed, even by Sandler's declining standards.

Predictions were in the range of $25 to $35 million for the debut of the action comedy. At least it was supposed to premiere in first place. But the movie may not even have reached those low bars. It opened this weekend with an estimated $24.0 million, putting it about $800,000 behind the week-old "Ant-Man." Those numbers may change by the time final figures are released on Monday, and "Pixels" could come out on top by the time all the quarters are spent. But it would still be one of the lowest opening weekends of Sandler's career.

It would also be the latest in a downward trend that's marked the comedian's box office for at least four years. Aside from his »

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, »

Box Office: ‘Ant-Man’ Tops Charts, ‘Pixels’ Opens to Lackluster $24 Million

26 July 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Adam Sandler’s star appears to have dimmed significantly, after “Pixels,” a slice of arcade game nostalgia that recruited the likes of Pac-Man and Donkey Kong to appear alongside the funnyman, opened to a disappointing $24 million at the domestic box office.

The critically derided comedy finished up just behind Disney and Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” which picked up first place and $24.8 million in its second weekend. That marks the weakest chart-topping performance since April 24 when “Furious 7,” then in its fourth week of release, bested all challengers with $17.8 million. So far, “Ant-Man” has earned $106.1 million stateside.

The weekend box office race unfolded in the shadow of a shocking act of violence after a gunman opened fire during a Thursday night screening of “Trainwreck” in Louisiana, killing two women and injuring nine people before turning the weapon on himself. Safety concerns across the country may have caused some consumers to steer clear of cinemas. »

Box Office Predictions: 'Pixels' Set to Pick on 'Paper Towns' and 'Ant-Man'

23 July 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I think the winner this weekend is Pixels, by a comfortable margin, but not by so much that it would be crazy if it didn't pull it off. Pretty basic reasoning here, it's still the summer, this is a family film, and they've got some nostalgia in there for the adults too. Plus, finally, a chance for old dad to impress someone with his Pac-Man skills immediately after the film. My closest comparison was Hotel Transylvania, another thematic Sandler vehicle. Yeah, one was animated and the other one is live-action, loaded with CGI, but they should end up at the same place financially. I've got it coming in at $40 million. What do you thinkc Paper Towns has a very easy similar film for us to consider, The Fault in Our Stars. No, not thematically, but the source material is angsty and tweeny, not that I'm deriding it, because I've read and enjoyed them all. »

New Directors on Minecraft & Emoji Movies in the Works in Hollywood

It's happening. They're making an emoji movie. And this is on top of Lego movies galore, a Minecraft movie, and whatever this Pixels thing is. Deadline is reporting updates on both projects, at separate studios. The Minecraft movie has been in the works for a while, since the game is has been very successful for a while now. The big news is that Rob McElhenney, best known for co-creating and co-starring in the FX series "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", will be directing the Minecraft movie for Warner Bros.

Hotel Transylvania Spin-Off TV Series Planned

14 July 2015 6:37 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Is there real, How To Train Your Dragon-level demand for a Hotel Transylvania spin-off TV series? Sony Pictures Animation and Nelvana Enterprises certainly think so, as the company is developing a new series based on the film.While you might wonder how they’ll get Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade and the rest to commit to longer recording sessions (or whether they’ll simply opt for sound-alikes), it appears the show is going in a slightly different direction. Its focus, according to Deadline, will be on Dracula’s daughter Mavis, voiced in the film and its upcoming sequel by Selena Gomez, and even then will be set in her teenage years, so even Gomez’s services may not be necessary.If this goes ahead, there’s a chance they can then score Sandler and co. for occasional drop-ins. And while the movie might not match, say the figures of the Dragon films, »
