Weekend Report: Burgundy Beaten by Bilbo

22 December 2013 1:12 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues had a solid debut this weekend, though it wasn't strong enough to take first place away from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Among the other new releases, American Hustle got off to a great start, while Saving Mr. Banks and Walking with Dinosaurs disappointed.Overall, it was a very good weekend at the box office*the Top 12 earned $137.3 million, which is up a whopping 37 percent from the same weekend last year. Unless all five Christmas Day releases bomb, the 2013 box office is now guaranteed to top last year's $10.84 billion record.In its second weekend in theaters, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug added an estimated $31.4 million. That's off 57 percent from last weekend, which is identical to the first Hobbit's drop at the same point. Smaug has so far earned $127.5 million, which is off 15 percent from the first movie's pace.Playing at 3,507 locations, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues »

Forecast: Great Odin's Raven! 'Anchorman 2' Set for Strong Start

18 December 2013 5:14 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Over nine years after the Channel 4 news team first appeared on the big screen, Ron Burgundy and crew return this weekend in Anchorman: The Legend Continues. With a robust marketing campaign targeted at the original's rabid fanbase, Anchorman 2 should open in first place ahead of The Hobbit and a handful of newcomers.After opening to $28.4 million in July 2004, the original Anchorman ended its run with $85.3 million. Unfortunately the movie made next-to-nothing at the overseas box office, so initially a sequel didn't seem like it had much potential. In the years since, though, stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd have all seen their stars rise substantially. More importantly, the movie wound up connecting with a much larger audience in its post-theatrical release, and the endlessly quotable characters have become a permanent pop culture fixture. Eventually, it became fairly obvious that there was potential for a sequel. Paramount »

Josh Gad Will Star in Gilligan's Island: Is He Gilligan or Skipper?

17 December 2013 11:47 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has tapped Josh Gad to star in and co-write the screenplay for their long-gestating big-screen adaptation of Gilligan's Island.

The studio had previously tried to bring the beloved TV series to life in 2010, when Brad Copeland (Yogi Bear) was attached to write the script, and Atlas Entertainment's Charles Roven and Richard Suckle were set to produce. Neither the writer or producers are involved in this new version, which will be co-written by Josh Gad, Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez. It isn't known what role Josh Gad will play, although there is speculation he may portray either The Skipper or Gilligan himself.

Lloyd J. Schwartz, Ross Schwartz, Tracey Silvers and Cathy Silvers will serve as executive producers. No production schedule was given.

Sherwood Schwartz created the original Gilligan's Island TV series, which ran for 96 episodes over three seasons between 1964 and 1967. The story centered on a three-hour boat tour from Honolulu that went awry, »

Josh Gad to Lead Comedy Based on 1960s TV Series 'Gilligan's Island'

17 December 2013 11:27 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Nearly four years ago, we learned producer Charles Roven (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) and his Atlas Entertainment production banner are working with Warner Bros to develop a feature length film adaptation of the classic castaway television series Gilligan's Island. Writer Brad Copeland (Yogi Bear, Wild Hogs) was hired to script the film, but now it's in different hands. Deadline reports Warner Bros. has hired Josh Gad (Frozen, "Book of Mormon") to lead the film, and he will also write the script with Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit (who scripted "1600 Penn" with Gad). However, Gad's not necessarily playing Gilligan. Gad seems like a better fit for The Skipper than Gilligan, but we're not sure how this reimagining of the story is going to work. Lloyd and Ross Schwartz (sons of the series creator Sherwood Schwartz) will executive produce with Tacey and Cathy Silvers. When the project was revealed a few years ago, »

5 Attractions Universal Orlando Should’ve Kept

5 November 2013 2:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Going on from Parts I and Parts II of this series, here now are five attractions Universal Orlando should’ve kept…


5. The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera

The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera was a simulator ride at Universal Studios and one of the park’s original attractions.

It featured numerous characters from Hanna-Barbera-produced shows and the storyline was that Dick Dastardly and Muttley had kidnapped Elroy Jetson, so Yogi Bear gave chase along with the audience – who were in for the ride of their lives.

In the queue, clips from the ever-popular Hanna-Barbera kids shows were shown on television screens – such as Huckleberry Hound, The Flintstones, Yogi Bear and The Jetsons, as well as more modern shows, such as Swat Kats and The Powerpuff Girls.

The next part of the pre-show was a supposed animation demonstration, in which guests were informed of Hanna-Barbera’s upcoming projects. Dick Dastardly appeared, demanded to »

Emily S. Whitten’s Interview with Maurice Lamarche

29 October 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

In my apparent continuing quest to interview all the great voice actors living today (because they are the most fun, okay?), I now bring you my interview with the talented and Emmy-winning Maurice Lamarche, a.k.a. The Brain, Squit, Kif Kroker, Morbo, Lrrr, several Futurama robots, Dr. Egon Spengler, Dizzy Devil, Yosemite Sam, Mr. Freeze, Victor von Doom, General Var Suthra, Mortimer Mouse, Chief Quimby, and more.

It was a real pleasure to speak with Maurice, who I’ve been listening to in various guises since I was a wee thing (I was a big Inspector Gadget fan as a child; and then with Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Futurama being amongst my other favorite shows through the years, I guess I’ve pretty much been listening to Maurice all my life!). It was also great to see him do many of his excellent voices and impressions both during the interview, »

Should Justin Timberlake Retire from Acting?

8 October 2013 6:30 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

No one would question Justin Timberlake’s musical career. Almost everything he has touched in a music studio has turned to solid gold.    His movie career, though, has been a different story. For every The Social Network, Timberlake seems to turn in an abysmal The Love Guru, In Time or Yogi Bear, which means even his most dedicated fans are going to hesitate before grabbing ticket to see a Timberlake movie. The fact that his latest, Runner Runner, only banked an estimated $7.6 million in its opening weekend (though to be fair, most everyone was checking out Gravity… and rightfully so).   Oddly enough, the backlash began. Variety ran an opinion piece calling for Timberlake to “retire” from acting. That seems extreme. So I got...

Why Justin Timberlake Should Stop Acting

7 October 2013 6:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2011, I sat down for a lengthy interview with Justin Timberlake, who told me that he was having the time of his life as a big screen star. Even though he’d experienced a few setbacks (“I bombed all my auditions,” he confessed), he was in the middle of promoting two romantic comedies and he had another film out that fall. Most of our conversation focused on his revitalized movie career.

Timberlake, who first appeared on “The Mickey Mouse Club” with Britney Spears and Ryan Gosling, said he had been studying acting for a long stretch. His inspiration was Will Smith, who successfully transitioned from music to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” to box office megastar. But then Timberlake said something that surprised me. “I have no aspirations of being a movie star,” he said. “I need no more attention.”

The Smurfs 2 struggles to resist the power of The Conjuring

7 August 2013 8:24 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

At a time of year usually dominated by family titles, James Wan's horror film temporarily left the Smurfs feeling blue last weekend

The magnificent seven

Throughout early summer, we tend to see one or two big blockbusters dominate the market each weekend, with the rest of the films on release competing for scraps. As we move into August, the field typically becomes more even, with several mid-size pictures jostling for position. That was certainly the case last weekend, when no fewer than seven films achieved grosses in excess of £1m – the first time this has happened since February 2011, when Paul, Gnomeo and Juliet, The King's Speech, True Grit, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, Yogi Bear and Tangled all delivered seven-figure sums in the same frame.

The winner #1

Topping the official Rentrak chart with £3.22m, The Smurfs 2 leads a crowded field of family titles including a still-potent Monsters University and Despicable Me 2. »

'Big Brother 15': Poppy Montgomery's 'Unforgettable' Have Not competition

28 July 2013 7:11 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Time for the latest "Big Brother 15" episode, where we find out who Aaryn decides to target with her Head of Household nominations. Who's excited?

Post Hoh

Aaryn is on top of the world with her rags-to-riches story, and so is coattail-rider GinaMarie. Helen thinks Aaryn will honor the deal of nominating Howard and Spencer. Who are not happy? Elissa and Candice. But at least they probably won't be the targets.

Candice informs Howard about Aaryn's deal and asks him not to tell Spencer, while Spence is working on Aaryn and she's begging off, saying she has to wait and see what everybody wants.

Aaryn tells Spencer she wants to play with people she respects and she respects him, so she wants to keep him, but "this game has turned into something else." Um, first of all, what has this game turned into? It's "Big Brother," not "Be the Best You Can Be" game. »

Interview With Brad Copeland On Coffee Town

24 July 2013 2:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

CollegeHumor’s first feature film, Coffee Town, blends an entertaining story with some great laughs, proving that the internet comedy website can indeed be a major player in the world of full-length movies.

Written and directed by Brad Copeland (writer/producer Arrested Development), the film’s all-star comedy cast includes Glenn Howerton (It’s  Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Steve Little (Eastbound & Down), Ben Schwartz(Parks and Recreation), Adrianne Palicki (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and Josh Groban (Crazy, Stupid, Love).

It’s essentially the first workplace comedy for the generation that doesn’t have an office. When a 30-something website manager who uses a local café as his office learns of plans to convert the space into a bar, he enlists the help of his two best friends to help save his freeloading existence.

Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with the film’s writer and director Brad Copeland to discuss the movie. »

Despicable Me 2

3 July 2013 1:58 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Despicable Me 2

Directed by: Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud

Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Benjamin Bratt, Ken Jeong

Running Time: 1 hr 38 mins

Rating: PG

Release Date: July 3, 2013

Plot: Gru (Carell) is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to work with a new partner (Wiig) at a mall, trying to discover the identity of a new super villain.

Who’S It For? Those who liked the first one, and anyone looking for easy entertainment.


There is a reason why some Despicable Me 2 posters only show you the minions; they are stealing the show. Minions are funny. Sure, they are terribly sophomoric, spewing jibberish with only a few actions actually pertaining to the film’s plot, but listen to the film’s plot. Gru is domesticated. It starts off adorably with Agnes’ (Elsie Kate Fisher) birthday party. But eventually we realize Gru is getting bored, and his three orphaned daughters would like him to date. »

Knight Rider movie adaptation moves up a gear as screenwriter Brad Copeland is appointed

26 June 2013 7:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Development on the Knight Rider movie has moved up a gear with the news that The Weinstein Company has appointed screenwriter Brad Copeland to pen a draft of the script for the classic 80s TV series, which starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a former Green Beret and Lapd Officer who fights crime with his artificially intelligent Pontiac Firebird Trans Am called Kitt.

Copeland's previous writing credits include the TV shows Arrested Development, My Name Is Earl and the U.S. version of The Inbetweeners, as well as the feature films Wild Hogs and Yogi Bear. He also made his directorial debut last year with the indie comedy Coffee Town, which is due for release in the States next month.

According to the Los Angeles Times, TWC envisions the Knight Rider movie as "a somewhat higher-budget, more action orientated movie than the Weinstein's typical prestige fare" and is hoping to »

Kanye West still on board for 'The Jetsons' film

26 June 2013 5:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kanye West is reportedly working on The Jetsons.

The rapper is said to be serving as creative director on the adaptation of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

West has previously been mentioned in connection with the film, although there has been no progress on the project for some time.

"We weave through highway traffic as West makes calls about an upcoming Jetsons movie on which, he tells me, he is creative director," wrote an interviewer for W Magazine.

Recent years have seen several cartoons adapted into CGI/live-action hybrids, including The Smurfs, Yogi Bear and Alvin and the Chipmunks.

West recently revealed that he came close to leaking his own sex tape last year to prevent any threat of extortion over the footage.

Knight Rider is Moving Forward as Big Budget Action Film

26 June 2013 4:13 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

The last time we heard of any plans to make a "Knight Rider" movie, based on the popular 1980s TV show, was back in 2002. Since then we got a reboot TV series in 2008, that only lasted for seventeen episodes, and now comes word that The Weinstein Company is once again interested in a feature film. La Times learned that Brad Copeland, who wrote "Yogi Bear" and John Travolta's "Wild Hogs," wrote for "Arrested Development," and has been working on reboots of other shows like "Gilligan's Island," has been hired to put together the script for "Knight Rider." The Weinstein Company wants to turn "Knight Rider" into a big-budget action film, similar to the "Fast and Furious" franchise. David Hasselhoff, who starred in the original series, has expressed interest in playing a part in the new movie. »

‘Knight Rider’ Feature Film Finds A Screenwriter

26 June 2013 2:53 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Having been glued to the television during my childhood with American shows Street Hawk, The A-team and Airwolf, certainly the standout for myself was The Hoff’s Knight Rider. Centring on crime-fighter Michael Knight and his high-tech talking car Kitt, the NBC series ran for four seasons, as well as landing a number of short-lived spin off series and a trio of TV movies. It most recently made an 18 episode comeback in a 2008 reboot with Val Kilmer voicing the A.I. vehicle.

Rumours of a transition to the big-screen have now become a reality. The Weinstein Company (who acquired the rights a while ago) have hired Brad Copeland to draft the feature film version that they hope can be their new action franchise. Copeland’s worked on acclaimed comedy series Arrested Development but was also responsible for much-maligned big screen fare like Wild Hogs and Yogi Bear. If he impresses TWC, »

Brad Copeland To Script The Knight Rider Reboot Movie

26 June 2013 1:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The show which fuelled a lot of childhood daydreams, Knight Rider, is one step closer to a big screen outing. While there’s been a threat of a new take on the hit show, it looks like now there’s traction to the rumours. The Los Angeles Times reports that The Weinstein Company have brought writer Brad Copeland onto the project to pen the script.

Copeland has been attached to a number of TV shows. Scribbling episodes for the original Arrested Development run, he also worked on the Us version of British comedy The Inbetweeners for MTV. His big screen outings, Wild Hogs and Yogi Bear, might not convince but his 2012 indie flick Coffee Town proves he ain’t just in it for the moola.

This rebooted version of the popular TV series will be a big budget actioner, no doubt hopping on the bandwagon made popular by fare like »

Screenwriter hired for Knight Rider movie

25 June 2013 10:28 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 26 Jun 2013 - 06:27

The big screen take on Knight Rider moves a step closer, as Brad Copeland is hired to pen the script...

One of the consequences of the massive success of the Fast & Furious movie franchise is that movies with cars, particular with cars that are capable of moving at speed, are getting through the Hollywood system just a little easier. For instance, in 2014, we're getting a movie based on the Need For Speed videogames, and there's the small matter of Fast & Furious 7 next summer.

And it seems as though plans are still afoot to bring Knight Rider to the big screen too. The Weinstein Company picked up the rights to the TV series, and have reportedly now hired Brad Copeland to pen a draft screenplay for a film based on it. Copeland, whose writing credits include Wild Hogs, Yogi Bear and the Us take on The Inbetweeners, »

Don't Worry, Kanye West Is Still The Creative Director Of 'The Jetsons' Movie

25 June 2013 8:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Let’s face it. Hollywood remakes are a dime a dozen these days and perhaps the biggest offenders of them all are uninspired animated CGI remakes of old beloved cartoons. "The Smurfs," "Yogi Bear," "Alvin and the Chipmunks" --- each one worse than the last, but thanks to massive box office returns, more of them keep getting made. So, perhaps, that’s why “The Jetsons” remake is still kicking around despite being in development hell. A remake that’s really only interesting for one reason… and it’s the most ridiculous, “so crazy it just might work” reason of all. In January of 2012, we caught wind of the possibility that Kanye West was interested in, and possibly involved with, being the creative director of the “Jetsons” movie. The rumor popped up thanks to a (since deleted) tweet he made back then. Not much else has been reported on the story since, »
