Segel Inspired By Brand's Attitude

8 May 2009 9:10 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jason Segel based his character in I Love You, Man on Russell Brand - because the British funnyman's onset charisma was so strong.

Segel and Brand starred together in the 2008 hit Forgetting Sarah Marshall, in which Brand plays an overly-confident, womanising rock star.

And the comedian's attitude during filming was so impressive, Segel stole his moves for his very next movie role.

He says, "I was so jealous of Russell for how much he 'popped' in Forgetting Sarah Marshall that I thought it was an opportunity to do my American version of him. So I put on a swagger and tried to be quite cavalier.

"Russell has this attitude that I don't have. He's like: 'This is who I am, Take it or leave it'." »

Move Over Miley, Zac Efron is New Tween Box-Office Fave! "17 Again" Rules!

19 April 2009 10:38 AM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Zac Efron's "17 Again" unseats Miley Cyrus' "Hannah Montana the Movie" as the weekend's box-office champ! "17 Again" made $24.1 million, making it the No. 1 film in North America! Meanwhile, "Hannah Montana" fell to No. 4 with $12.7 million.

Efron joins the likes of Kevin James ("Paul Blart: Mall Cop"), Liam Neeson ("Taken"), Tyler Perry ("Madea Goes to Jail"), and Cyrus in changing the rules in Hollywood on who should take the box-office crown.

Meanwhile, Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck must settle for No. 2. Their flick, "State of Play," took in $14.1 million. But apparently, Universal Pictures is happy with its modest outcome.

Another new release, Lionsgate's actioner, "Crank: High Voltage" failed to match "Fast & Furious'" stellar box-office power. The Jason Statham sequel only made $6.5 million debuting at No. 6.

Here's the complete Top 10 box-office films for weekend of April 17:

1. "17 Again" $24.1 million

2. "State of Play" $14.1 million

3. "Monsters vs. Aliens" $12.9 million

Miley Cyrus is Box-Office Queen! "Hannah Montana: The Movie" Opened Huge!

12 April 2009 2:17 PM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

For those doubting the tweens' box-office power, look no further than this past weekend. Walt Disney's "Hannah Montana: The Movie" opened with $34 million in ticket sales!

Not only that, "Hannah Montana" also scored the biggest opening day ever for a G-rated live-action movie with Friday's $17.3 million success!

Previous box-office champ, "Fast & Furious" fell to second place with $28.8 million. But so far, the racing adventure's domestic take totaled to $118 million, while its international total has topped $200 million.

Not bad for a formulaic film with ho-hum acting.

Meanwhile, other new films didn't do as good at the box-office. Seth Rogen's "Observe and Report" only managed to catch $11.1 million, while Fox's "Dragonball Evolution" debuted at No. 8 with $4.7 million in box-office take...yikes!

Here's the complete list of Top 10 box-office films for weekend of April 10th:

1. "Hannah Montana: The Movie," $34 million.

2. "Fast & Furious," $28.8 million.

3. "Monsters vs. Aliens," $22.6 million.

4. "Observe and Report," $11.1 million.

‘Hannah Montana’ Back on Top

12 April 2009 11:22 AM, PDT | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Miley CyrusDisney Channel alter ego Hannah Montana set more box office records, putting the 16-year-old child star back at number one.  Hannah Montana: The Movie made $34 million over the Easter weekend, the biggest family film and the second largest overall for the holiday 3-day.  The estimated total is especially impressive considering her audience woke up early this morning to hunt for eggs.

Last year her Best of Both Worlds Concert was the biggest pure 3-D opening and set the record for largest Super Bowl weekend.  Now she’s back with a G-rated, semi-autobiographical narrative about the pressures of being a major star.  It’s a bittersweet day for Disney, who is celebrating the biggest April opening for the studio while Cyrus continues to state publicly she won’t be back for a sequel.  By the time another movie is ready the tweens will have outgrown her any way.  My “achy breaky heart” is broken. »

5 April 2009 6:26 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Fast & Furious raced to the top of the U.S. box office chart scooping a staggering $72.5 million (£50 million) in its opening weekend (03-05Apr09).

After skipping sequels 2 Fast 2 Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Vin Diesel returned to the franchise for the fourth installment, and proved to be the magic ingredient.

The huge opening weekend haul is the most ever for a movie released in April and the biggest so far in 2009.

Monsters vs Aliens took second place with $33.5 million (£22.6 million), followed by The Haunting in Connecticut with $9.6 million (£6.5 million)

Nicolas Cage's thriller Knowing was fourth with $8.1 million (£5.5 million), followed by Paul Rudd comedy I Love You, Man with $7.9 million (£5.3 million). »

Knowing Outsmarts Competition At U.S. Box Office

22 March 2009 6:25 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Nicolas Cage's new sci-fi thriller Knowing has topped the competition at the U.S. box office, taking in $24.8 million (£17.2 million) in its opening weekend (20-22Mar09).

The actor's role, as a widower whose young son has a cryptic premonition, helped the film topple over new star-studded comedy I Love You, Man, which came in second.

The film, starring Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Rashida Jones, Sarah Burns and Jaime Pressly, debuted at $18 million (£12.5 million), while Julia Roberts' spy thriller Duplicity opened in the third spot with $14 million (£9.7 million).

Dropping from number one to the fourth spot is Disney movie Race to Witch Mountain, starring former wrestler Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, taking in another $13 million (£9 million) in its second week.

Rounding out the top five is superhero film Watchmen, which fell from the second spot, earning another $6.7 million (£4.6 million) at the weekend. The film boasts a three-week total of $98 million (£68 million). »

'Knowing' tops weekend boxoffice

22 March 2009 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

There was more snacking than feasting at the domestic boxoffice this weekend.

Summit Entertainment's suspense thriller "Knowing" bowed at No. 1 with an estimated $24.8 million, while two other wide openers also registered respectable sums. Paramount's R-rated comedy "I Love You, Man" debuted in second place with $18 million, and Universal's spy thriller "Duplicity" took third with $14.4 million.

Holdover pics also contributed decent performances. But despite such sturdy grosses, the session's $107 million in industrywide boxoffice marked a 6% dip when compared with an Easter 2008 weekend topped by two $20 million-plus performers.

Nielsen Edi data show the latest frame represents just the third year-over-year down session in 11 frames this year, and industryites remain upbeat about the current theatrical marketplace. Year-to-date, 2009 is pacing 1% head of the same portion of last year at $2.02 billion, but the modest nature of that improvement reflects seasonal fluctuations in the boxoffice calendar.

Three releases ready for boxoffice battle

19 March 2009 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Oh, for a clearer crystal ball.

Three wide openers look like they should do some decent boxoffice this weekend, but calling a favorite to finish atop the domestic rankings is tougher than usual.

Some say Summit Entertainment's sci-fi yarn "Knowing," starring Nicolas Cage and Rose Byrne, will unspool at No. 1 with well more than $20 million through Sunday. Support is strongest among older males, but older females and younger males also express good prerelease interest.

Still, considering it is the younger demos who tend to drive openings, it's perhaps unfortunate for Summit as its wide-release competition includes Paramount's R-rated comedy "I Love You, Man."

Toplined by Paul Rudd and Jason Segel -- who also paired in last year's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" -- "Man" appears a lock for at least the teen millions. And if "Man" peels off too many younger moviegoers, »

Jason Segel and Paul Rudd are experts at the delicate art of setting up a punch line. And, as they make abundantly clear in the new film I Love You, Man, they're especially nimble at playing off each other, working in tandem to achieve maximum hilarity. "What's been great about working with a lot of the same people is we kind of finish each other's sentences," says Rudd. "So it's like, 'Oh, I can set this up so Jason's gonna hit the home run.' " Those "same people" would be the tight-knit gang of guys who make up the Judd Apatow fraternity -- the improv-happy actors, writers, and directors who often take part in films produced and/or directed by the comedy god. Segel and Rudd have been involved in a number of them, including the monster hit Knocked Up and last year's Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which had Rudd stealing »

SXSW film fest kicks off with much 'Love'

15 March 2009 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Austin -- John Hamburg's "I Love You, Man" opened the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin on Friday, a week ahead of its national theatrical rollout. The comedy, starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, played to a packed house at the Paramount Theatre, one of 54 world premieres set to play around town before the fest wraps Tuesday.

"It's such a cool movie town, and it feels like a really cool vibe to debut our film here," Hamburg said.

Friday's opening slate ran the typical festival gamut, covering everything from studio pics to such darker fare as John Inwood's "ExTerminators," starring Heather Graham, and Adam Goldstein and Eric Kutner's "The Snake," an indie comedy introduced and championed by comedian Patton Oswalt.

Saturday saw the premieres of two films that couldn't be more different: Duncan Jones' sci-fi thriller "Moon," starring Sam Rockwell, and Michael Stephenson's documentary "Best Worst Movie. »

Quotable New 'I Love You, Man' Posters

3 March 2009 6:53 AM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

I've got high hopes for I Love You, Man, even if I never want to hear the phrase "bromantic comedy" again. You know, it works about three times and then you have to retire it, like "manscaping" or "Nfc Champion Arizona Cardinals."

It's a clever enough idea for a comedy, with Paul Rudd trying to find a guy to be the best man at his wedding. The only trouble is, he's always hung out with girls so he doesn't have any guy friends. A series of platonic man-on-man dates commence whereby Rudd settles on Jason Segel. Then it's The Odd Couple, I think.

Some very strange new posters for I Love You, Man popped up at Imp Awards, featuring what we can only assume are quotes from the movie that don't yet have a context to us.

     

 

I Love You, Man will fill theaters (leaving the requisite seat in between dudes) beginning March 20th. »

Today we have a new restricted clip from the upcoming Paul Rudd comedy "I Love You, Man," featuring a scene in which Rudd and his fiancee Rashida Jones are listening to advice from her friends. Plot: Peter Klaven (Rudd) is a successful real estate agent who, upon getting engaged to the woman of his dreams, Zooey (Rashida Jones), discovers, to his dismay and chagrin, that he has no male friend close enough to serve as his Best Man. Peter immediately sets out to rectify the situation, embarking on a series of bizarre and awkward "man-dates," before meeting Sydney Fife (Jason Segel), a charming, opinionated man with whom he instantly bonds. But the closer the two men get, the more Peter's relationship with Zooey suffers, ultimately forcing him to choose between his fiancee and his new found "bro."

Great New Clip from 'I Love You, Man'

26 February 2009 11:00 PM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

I'm really looking forward to I Love You, Man, the new bromantic comedy starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel. For a while, I was worried that Rudd would only be a supporting player in Judd Apatow movies, but apparently all of those comedic roles dating back to Anchorman have brought him to comic lead status, and I think that's great. He's a very funny guy and he deserves more recognition.

To a large degree, that recognition came last fall with Role Models, one of the better reviewed and most profitable comedies of 2008. It's the perfect setup for I Love You, Man, in which Rudd plays a guy who's about to get married, but because he's basically a metrosexual, he's never had any guy friends. Not wanting to be absent a best man, he goes on a series of man dates to find that special someone.

Watch 2 Red Band Clips from I Love You Man -- They’re called Boat race and lock the tongue down

26 February 2009 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Written by Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub Back in December I managed to see an early screening of Paramount’s upcoming comedy “I Love You, Man” and thought it was great. In case you aren’t familiar with the movie… “I Love You, Man” is about Paul Rudd’s character (Peter Klaven) not having any guy friends. So when he gets engaged, he doesn’t have a best man. Meanwhile, his soon to be wife is loaded with bridesmaids. Paul immediately sets out to rectify the situation by going out on “man-dates”. Enter Jason Segel’s character of Sydney Fife. After an awkward beginning, they begin to get to know one another and it leads to a bro-mance. But does this new friendship jeopardize everything else in his life…. What I really loved about the movie is that all of the characters felt like real people. None of them were movie cliché »
