Box-Office Oracle: Dec. 24 - Dec. 26, 2010

23 December 2010 5:42 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The streak is very much in jeopardy, as the smart money has Little Fockers taking the weekend. But my intellect tells me the Fockers franchise is fading fast, and will face a domestic drop that's similar to Shrek Forever After. Let's break this thing down! Laremy predicted the #1 movie correctly 7 Weeks In A Row Tron: Legacy Christmas weekend was really strong last year, but that was when Avatar, Sherlock Holmes, and The Squeakquel patrolled the box office. This year feels much more like 2008 to me, when Marley and Me and Bedtime Stories finished first and second.

I'm dipping Tron: Legacy 35 percent, the most of the weekend, but it will still have just enough to take the crown. This also feels like the type of film that will do well overseas, with a 2x multiplier, much like Clash of the Titans.

Prediction: $28.62 million

2. Little Fockers Shrek the Third opened at $29k, »

Russell Brand's Five-Minute Shakespearean Improv For 'The Tempest' Will Knock Your Socks Off

15 December 2010 9:05 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Russell Brand might have a pretty short filmography right now, but it shouldn't take too much digging to realize that he's going to be a force to be reckoned with very soon. He surprised everyone in the States with his scene-stealing performance in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and then went on to make us love Aldous Snow all over again in this year's "Get Him To The Greek." Somehow he managed to make a drunken rock star surprisingly nuanced and relatable.

Full disclosure: I haven't seen "Bedtime Stories" so I can't vouch for Brand in there. Nor have I seen "The Tempest," since it hasn't hit theaters in the Boston area yet. But what I have seen is Vulture's video of Brand improvising a five-minute long back story for his Shakespearean character, the jester Trinculo, during a "Tempset" rehearsal with director Julie Taymor and co-star Alfred Molina.

Teresa Palmer Interview I Am Number Four; Plus Updates on Take Me Home Tonight and Kieran Darcy-Smith’s Say Nothing

7 December 2010 10:53 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While moviegoers have seen a lot of Teresa Palmer over the past few years in films such as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Bedtime Stories, for her upcoming sci-fi action thriller I Am Number Four, we’re going to see a new side: action star.  That’s because in director D.J. Caruso’s upcoming movie (produced by Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay), Palmer plays a mysterious outsider who eventually kicks some serious ass on screen.

A few months ago I got to visit the set of I Am Number Four while the production was shooting in Pittsburgh (read about it here).  On set I was able to do a roundtable interview with Palmer (click here to read) where she talked about the challenges of getting ready to film all the action and she also revealed who she plays in the movie and why it’s a cool part.  But with the new trailer getting released, »

Sandler Gave Brand Jump Start In Hollywood

21 November 2010 6:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Comedian Russell Brand has Adam Sandler to thank for his blossoming Hollywood career - because the movie star was the first to suggest the Brit abandon his TV job and try out as an actor.

The Get Him to the Greek star previously worked as a presenter for MTV UK and it was only after a risque interview with Sandler that Brand began contemplating moving to the U.S.

He says, "I was in England minding my own business, presenting an MTV programme, and Adam Sandler came on it as a guest.

"I was quite cheeky (to him) even though he was a big movie star and afterwards people said (to Sandler), 'Are you alright? He was quite cheeky to you.' And he said, 'No, actually I quite liked it, he should come to America and do films.'"

And the Big Daddy star even gave Katy Perry's new husband a helping hand to land his first acting gig in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Brand adds, "So he put me in touch with Judd Apatow and then Adam put me in his film Bedtime Stories and now I'm making another film, so it's been amazing for me. That was a bit of bl**dy luck!"

Apatow produced both Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Brand's hit summer comedy Get Him to the Greek. »

Adam Sandler Hires Writer to Adapt ‘Pixels’

11 November 2010 5:13 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Production banner have hired frequent collaborator Tim Herlihy to adapt the popular Internet short “Pixels” into a feature film.

Sandler made a deal with French filmmaker Patrick Jean in May to turn the two-and-a-half minute clip into a Ghostbusters-style action comedy where video game figures break into the real world and begin wreaking havoc.  ”Pixels” (see below) features nods to classic games like Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Pac-Man, and Frogger, though securing the rights to any of those will be tricky.

Herlihy and Sandler worked together on “Saturday Night Live” in the early ’90s before breaking off into movies.  Herlihy wrote or co-wrote Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding SingerThe Waterboy, Big Daddy, Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, Bedtime Stories, and Sandler’s upcoming rom-com, the aptly-titled Just Go With It. In fact, Herlihy hasn’t written any movies that Sandler didn’t star in, »

Madonna To Open Gyms, With Car Dealerships On The Way

26 October 2010 11:00 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Madonna has made a career out exploring new trends, steadily evolving her sound and branching out in any direction that interests her. And that's not just focused on music either, as she has explored the different facets of the worlds of film, fashion and now physical fitness. Madonna will be opening a series of gyms with the name "Hard Candy" (a moniker they share with Madge's 2008 album) in various cities around the world (Mexico City will get the first one, set to open in November).

While Madonna isn't as advanced as the likes of Kiss in the marketing and diversification department, she can easily catch up with the following ideas.

The Madonna Network

If Oprah Winfrey can have her own home on cable and there is one network focused entirely on knitting, then Madonna can certainly fill a broadcast day. There could be a fashion show hosted by Lourdes, documentary »

Exclusive: The Brothers Strause Talk Skyline Part 1

25 October 2010 1:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

These days big budget films are a staple of movie-going fare. Big stars, huge budgets, and giant “event” pictures are given wide release and fill cineplexes around the world. For decades it has been the formula that has fueled what many refer to as “Hollywood.” But times are changing. Technology is seeing to that.

And as the state of the art advances, costs of cameras come down, and with the advent of the High Definition Digital format, the “Hollywood Formula” is being adapted by some very gifted filmmakers, and they are using it to their – and our – advantage.

Enter visual FX wizards and filmmakers, Colin and Greg Strause. Years of working as two of the industry’s most sought after visual FX artists provided them with the opportunity to direct their first film, the highly debated Alien vs. Predator: Requiem. After enduring the promises and betrayals inherent with working in the studio system, »

Madonna's 'Ray Of Light' Scores A Moonman: Wake-Up Video

10 September 2010 5:30 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

In the history of the MTV Video Music Awards, no artist has taken home more Moonmen than Madonna. The Material Girl, who performed at the very first VMAs in 1984 and most recently introduced the Michael Jackson tribute at last year's show, has taken home a grand total of 20 Video Music Awards across her illustrious career, and on this day in 1998, she scored six prizes in one night, including her only win for Video of the Year (for "Ray of Light," which won five; she got one more for "Frozen").

It was fitting that Madonna had such a huge night at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards. She had been away from pop music for a few years (she had instead been focusing on films, including the title role in the movie musical "Evita"). The last time she made an impact on the music scene was with the strange, esoteric Bedtime Stories album, »

Meet the Six Contenders for Spider-Man’s Love

20 August 2010 8:21 PM, PDT | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

This week, the Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog learned of six possible candidates to play the love interest in Sony’s Spider-Man reboot.  The lovely young ladies, ranging from ages 19 to 25, are meeting with director Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield within the month to discuss the role.

However, in a departure from Sam Raimi’s trilogy, Peter Parker’s girlfriend will not be the redheaded Mary Jane Watson.  It seems the reboot will start with a different love interest, presumably Spidey’s first love Gwen Stacy.

Speculation is that Garfield’s age (27) could relocate the origin story from high school to undergraduate study at Empire State University, where he meets Stacy.  In the comics, the two develop a romance until Stacy dies in a confrontation with the Green Goblin, and her untimely demise brings Parker closer to his eventual wife, Mary Jane.  So it’s very possible they’ll both be introduced. »

As predicted, director Christopher Nolan's Inception defeated Angelina Jolie's Salt last weekend to take the number one spot at the box office for a second week in a row. But will the buzz-worthy movie, which is already earning Oscar consideration, be able to defend its position against the new Steve Carell comedy Dinner for Schmucks or the family film Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore?

The answer seems to be ... yes! If early predictions are correct, Inception, the long awaited sci-fi action thriller from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) will be the number one film again this weekend for the third week in a row. »
