Summer 2014 Forecast (cont.)

12 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from Summer Forecast: #1 - 1213. The Fault in our Stars (June 6): As usual, there's not a ton of compelling content for women this Summer. One exception to that is The Fault in Our Stars, which is a romantic drama based off the popular John Green novel. The trailer has over 15 million views on YouTube*in line with most would-be blockbusters*and star Shailene Woodley is coming off a break-out role in Divergent. Look for this to be a solid hit as well. (Domestic: $120 million, Foreign: $55 million)14. Deliver Us From Evil (July 2): Horror movies can provide a nice alternative to all of the big-budget spectacle, R-rated humor, and animated fare that dominates multiplexes during the Summer months. Last year's The Conjuring was a surprise hit with $137.4 million; if anything is going to match that this year, its Deliver Us from Evil. The strong trailer features a lengthy, very frightening »

Film Review: ‘Make Your Move’

19 April 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“East-Meets-West Side Story” might have made a clunkier but more interesting title for “Make Your Move,” a slick, disposable soap opera about a poor white boy and a spirited Korean girl who fall in love despite hailing from rival corners of Brooklyn’s club scene. Wringing yet another variation on the boy-hoofer-meets-girl-hoofer formula that fueled his screenplays for “Save the Last Dance” and “Step Up,” writer-director Duane Adler weaves an overly tangled web of resentment, betrayal and thuggish violence around his attractive two leads (“Dancing With the Stars” champ Derek Hough and pop star BoA), both of whom display almost enough fancy footwork to overcome the cliches they’ve been saddled with. Theatrical biz will be limited, but this amiable time-filler could have ancillary legs, particularly among the Asian-American audiences being targeted.

‘Cottage Country’ Review

28 March 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tyler LabineMalin Akerman, Lucy Punch, Dan Petronijevic, Benjamin Ayres, Kenneth Welsh, Nancy Beatty, Jonathan Crombie, Sabrina Grdevich, Jim Annan | Written by Jeremy Boxen | Directed by Peter Wellington

I was doing what many customers of Netflix do, browsing the catalogue of films on offer with a far-away look in my eye, unable to choose what to watch as the evening got later and later. As a fan of Tyler Labine from his work in Tucker and Dale versus Evil, I decided to give this movie a shot.

Also starring Malin Akerman (27 Dresses, Rock of Ages), Cottage Country is a comedy movie with elements of thriller, horror and romance, and is directed by Peter Wellington, who, from what I can tell, has only really been responsible for a few television movies, and random episodes of television shows I know little to nothing about.

The big blockbusters of summer 2015

Feature Simon Brew 31 Mar 2014 - 05:42

Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup

Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.

But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.

We kick off at the start of April (although note that March has Kenneth Branagh’s live action Cinderella movie, »

The Americans review – 'It falls between the gaps of silly and serious'

15 March 2014 3:50 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Second time round, this 80s spy drama is still watchable – if you can get past the ridiculous wigs

When The Americans (ITV) arrived on UK screens last year, it promised to be another addition to the pantheon of watercooler Us dramas. It had the spy fun of Homeland and the tension of 24, with a dash of absurdity in the form of an increasingly preposterous rotation of wigs and an 80s Mor soundtrack. It was Rock of Ages without Tom Cruise but with a Kgb subplot. Yet somehow, it lost its grip on me quickly.

The second season feels like a good time to give it another go. It's acclaimed and enormously popular in the Us. In the UK, it remains in the Saturday-evening slot that it had for its first run, which means that for those watching it in real time, it awkwardly follows the weekend joviality of Ant and Dec »

Alec Baldwin Bids His 'Public Life'€. Goodbye

24 February 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Alec Baldwin, fresh off of a year of damaging media coverage, no longer wishes to carry on with his “public life” and seeks a return to having his main focus be the craft of acting.

Alec Baldwin Ends 'Public Life'

Baldwin, 55, had a tumultuous 2013 – save for the birth of his daughter Carmen Baldwin with wife Hilaria Baldwin. He recounts the baser highlights, including his spat with Shia LeBeouf, his multiple encounters with paparazzi and his short-lived stint on MSNBC in an essay penned for New York Magazine. All of the above and more have convinced the former 30 Rock star to live a quieter, more private life.

"I loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible," Baldwin wrote. "This is the last time I'm going to talk about my personal life in an American publication ever again."

Alec Baldwin Bids Adieu To Public Life...Again

24 February 2014 2:15 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Prompted by who-knows-what reasoning, Alec Baldwin recently decided to bid farewell once more to the public spotlight via a long and meandering essay. Published in the February 24, 2014 print edition of New York Magazine and then online at Vulture yesterday evening, the missive seems to have no catalyst. Instead Baldwin is simply 'fed up' with how the media machine works in the 21st century. So now he's going to take his ball and home..this time for super serious you guys. You can read his rant in its entirety over here but I've saved you the trouble by pulling out the choicest bits. Can you live-blog a written article? Well if you couldn't before today, you can now. Here we go!   'Alec Baldwin: Good-bye, Public Life'   Off to a great start. This title sets the tone for the essay. And that tone is a letter scrawled in a notebook, »

13 Alec Baldwin Quotes You Need to Read to Believe

24 February 2014 10:25 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Alec Baldwin is done with American media, saying "good-bye" to public life in a New York Magazine cover story that came out on Sunday. Although 2013 had its exciting moments for Alec, including the arrival of a baby girl with his wife, Hilaria, it also brought some negative buzz for the actor. He made headlines after allegedly calling a paparazzo a "toxic little queen," he got caught up in a public feud with Shia Labeouf, and critical press swirled after his MSNBC show was canceled. Addressing all those issues and more, Alec has, rather ironically, taken to the media to talk about why he's done with the media. With digs at Shia, Rachel Maddow, Anderson Cooper, and more, check out these 13 must-read quotes from Alec's essay to learn his position and what he plans to do next.
