Review: ‘Zoolander 2’ Starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penélope Cruz & Will Ferrell

3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The bend/break rules of comedic malleability are well established, but do not forget the dictum that schtick barely expands. If cinema has taught us anything, it’s that there's nearly a zero-tolerance policy for the comedy sequel, one of the most difficult nuts to crack. And while comedy follow-ups are something Paramount Pictures have been curiously invested in of late ("Hot Tub Time Machine 2," “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”), “Zoolander 2,” Ben Stiller’s largely tiresome, predictable and belated sequel to his 2001 fashion-world comedy, is not a wise bet. Mostly uninspired, overcooked, over-plotted, and cobbled together by a string of warmed-over jokes — credited to four writers, no less — “Zoolander 2” at least has the good sense to begin by killing Justin Bieber. But the goodwill earned in assassinating the world’s smuggest pop star is short-lived.  It's revealed that Bieber has been gunned down by a secret cabal that is mysteriously terminating the. »

Film Review: ‘Zoolander 2’

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It may have been a really, really ridiculously good-looking idea on paper, but Ben Stiller’s attempt to bring back one of his more beloved creations feels like a cheap designer knockoff in “Zoolander 2.” Falling well below the standards of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” (2014) in the long-delayed-sequel sweepstakes, this flailing follow-up drags the endearingly dim-witted Derek Zoolander out of retirement for an extended Roman holiday, backed by a parade of real-life celebrities and fashion-world denizens who are now very much in on the joke. If only that joke weren’t so far past its sell-by date: The results may delight those who believe recycled gags and endless cameos to be the very essence of great screen comedy, but everyone else will likely recognize Stiller’s wannabe Magnum opus as a disappointment-slash-misfire, the orange mocha crappuccino of movie sequels.

Just as “Anchorman 2” nearly doubled the worldwide gross of its 2004 predecessor, »

‘Deadpool’ to Pummel Box Office Competition Over President’s Weekend

21 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ryan Reynolds is looking to achieve box office redemption with “Deadpool.”

After seeing his once-white hot career flicker at a low ebb, diminished by flops such as “R.I.P.D.” and “Green Lantern,” the actor seems to have rediscovered his mojo. “Deadpool,” a very R-rated comic book adaptation about a wise-cracking mercenary, is on track to do as much as $70 million over the four-day President’s Weekend when it opens in more than 3,540 locations. Fox, the studio behind the picture is being more conservative, pegging a debut between $60 million to $65 million.

Whatever the final result, “Deadpool” has a very strong chance of enjoying the second biggest President’s Weekend launch in history, behind only “Fifty Shades of Grey’s” $93 million debut. It should also be a boon to Reynolds. The actor played Deadpool in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” and has been agitating for a standalone adventure for some time. The picture got »

9 Reasons Zoolander 2 Is A Disappointment (And 2 It’s Not)

7 February 2016 5:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Zoolander 2 doesn’t begin rolling out worldwide until January 11th, though if you’ve been lucky enough to be a UK resident, you might’ve caught the long-awaited follow-up in previews this past weekend.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, though we all wanted it to be a cult classic in the making much like the original, “Twolander” is a fairly mixed bag on the whole. While certainly not a painful experience, it should have been capable of so much more considering the lengthy gestation period and ridiculous array of talent attached to it.

Expect the reaction to be somewhat similar to Anchorman 2, which garnered mostly positive reviews yet was massively divisive with the hardcore fans. You’ll laugh, but you’ll also wish there was more in the way of smart-dumb humour, as more gags than you’ll want to admit just fall horrendously flat.

Here are 9 reasons Zoolander 2 »

Bask in the stupidity of these new clips from Zoolander 2

5 February 2016 5:58 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Like Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Dumb And Dumber To, Zoolander 2 is one of those comedy sequels which is arriving many years after the original. As with any long-delayed and much anticipated sequel, there's the very real possibility that Zoolander 2 won't measure up to its predecessor, but I'll give it this, it can't possibly get any more vacuous. Paramount Pictures... Read More »

'Ride Along 2' #1, 'Revenant' Holds Strong and 'Star Wars' Crosses $1 Billion Internationally

17 January 2016 9:20 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Ride Along 2 was unable to top its predecessor but an estimated $34 million is enough to top the weekend box office, followed closely by Fox's The Revenant, which dropped only 26% in its second weekend in wide release. Both films finished ahead of domestic box office king Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which fell to third in its fifth weekend in release while becoming only the fifth film to ever cross a major international milestone. Meanwhile Michael Bay's 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi performed just slightly under expectations while Lionsgate's animated pick-up Norm of the North exceeded our most pessimistic of expectations. A selection of this past Thursday's Oscar nominees also added a few theaters, delivering results worth taking a look at. Starting at the top, 2014's Ride Along debuted with a whopping $41.5 million over the three-day weekend and $48.6 million for what was a four-day, Martin Luther King weekend record. »

'Ride Along 2' and 'Revenant' Look to Remove 'Star Wars' from Its Perch

14 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Saturday Update: Ride Along 2's Friday estimates came in at $12 million, $2.4 million short of the original. Similarly, the film fell short of its predecessor's "A" CinemaScore, pulling in a "B+" from opening day audiences. Depending on your source, estimates for the four-day weekend range from $35-40 million, putting it anywhere from $8-13 million short of the original's impressive 2014 performance and possibly push the comedy sequel to second place for the weekend behind our next film. With an estimated $9.3 million, The Revenant took second on Friday, but could score a #1 finish for the weekend as it targets a $37-38 million over the four-day. Michael Bay's 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi took in an estimated $5.9 million on Friday. The film scored an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which should keep it on track for a $20-21 million four-day. The weekend's final newcomer is Lionsgate's Norm of the North, »

How Adam McKay Made Financial Disaster a Laughing Matter in ‘The Big Short’ (Exclusive Video)

1 January 2016 3:12 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The guy who directed “Anchorman,” “Step Brothers,” “Talladega Nights” and “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” would not necessarily be the person you’d choose to make a movie about subprime mortgages, the housing bubble and the financial crisis of 2008. But the unorthodox choice to hire Adam McKay to direct the film version of Michael Lewis‘ nonfiction book “The Big Short” has paid off in a film that has landed multiple Golden Globe and SAG nominations and is a strong contender for the Oscars. “Adam’s known for his work in comedies, but he’s also a very good storyteller,” says Steve Carell in. »
