Cringe: 13 movies with blatantly homophobic scenes

26 March 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The new comedy "Get Hard" stars Kevin Hart as an unlikely coach who trains Will Ferrell for a stint in prison. In one scene, Hart insists that Ferrell go to a top La brunch spot and give oral sex to a random patron in the bathroom to learn -- I guess? -- the mechanics of prison rape. Yes, this movie equates consensual gay sexual activity with actual rape. Cut to Will Ferrell in a restaurant bathroom gagging at the sight of a penis for the amusement of a multiplex audience. Could it be the most homophobic scene in a comedy of the past ten years? It's certainly a candidate. To commemorate this weirdly ignorant movie, we've compiled a list: movies with homophobic scenes so blatant, they made us shudder. Sometimes a movie reeks of homophobia (See: that ol' heart-warmer "Cruising") and sometimes it's just a couple of moments in a »

Andrew Dice Clay Reality Series Lands At Showtime

20 March 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Divisive comic Andrew Dice Clay is determined to revive his career, and he may have finally secured a path to glory. The Las Vegas stand-up is set to star in a six-episode, half-hour series for Showtime that Variety claims will use Clay’s “rags-to-riches-to-rags trajectory” as “fodder” for the show.

A semi-autobiographical scripted series – there’s an oxymoron – Clay will shoot this summer in Vegas and follow the once-famous superstar as he tries to maintain a family life whilst rebuilding his failing career.

The show was created by writer Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II) and Fox 21 TV Studios, with Fox execs apparently funding a presentation for Showtime out of their own pockets. Both Clay and Armstrong will executive produce the series along with Daybreakers‘ duo Sean and Bryan Furst, Richard Shepard and Bruce Rubenstein.

50 Shades of Grey wins Us box office for second week

22 February 2015 10:58 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fifty Shades of Grey has claimed the Us box office for a second week after taking $23,246,000.

The erotic adaptation - starring Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele - became the highest-grossing Presidents' Day opener and second-highest February opening of all time after taking $81.6 million last week.

Upon its release, Fifty Shades ranked among the biggest R-rated movie debuts, with only The Matrix Reloaded, The Hangover Part II and The Passion of the Christ earning more.

Colin Firth's Kingsman: The Secret Service holds onto the second spot with $17.5 million while last week's number one The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water stays three with $15.5 million.

Kevin Costner's McFarland, USA is new at four with $11.3 million, just beating teen comedy The Duff which rounds out the top five.

American Sniper occupies the number six spot, as comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 enters at seven with $5.8 million. »

Forecast: 'Fifty Shades' Set to Spank 'Hot Tub' Sequel This Weekend

19 February 2015 4:31 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Coming off one of the busiest weekends in years, the box office is going to quiet down significantly this coming weekend.Hot Tub Time Machine 2, McFarland, USA and The Duff are all opening in at least 2,500 theaters, though it would be surprising if any of these took in over $15 million this weekend. Therefore, the top three spots should once again belong to Fifty Shades of Grey, Kingsman: The Secret Service and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.Coming off a massive $85.2 million debut, Fifty Shades of Grey seems poised to take a dive this weekend. Word-of-mouth is mixed, die-hard book fans likely already made it out last weekend, and romantic movies tend to fall hard coming off Valentine's Day. About Last Night (2014), Endless Love and Valentine's Day all fell at least 70 percent on this same weekend, while the Twilight sequels and The Fault in our Stars had similar second weekend drops. »

100 teenagers mobbed a mall in Florida after being refused tickets to see Fifty Shades of Grey.

16 February 2015 2:58 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

A List of Records ‘Fifty Shades’ Broke This Weekend at Box Office

15 February 2015 11:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fifty Shades of Grey” torched record books this weekend, debuting to a white hot $81.7 million domestically and $239.7 million globally.

By introducing moviegoers to little-explored sections of the Kama Sutra, Universal Pictures’ erotic romance became the highest-grossing Presidents Day Weekend opener. It also established new benchmarks for R-rated fare.

Not shabby for a film that cost $40 million to produce before factoring in promotional and distribution costs. Sam Taylor-Johnson directed the film, with Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in the lead roles. Sequels to the picture have yet to earn a greenlight, but given the results, that appears to be a formality.

Here’s a look at some of the records that got incinerated thanks to Christian Grey’s smoldering glare.

Box Office Report: Fifty Shades Of Grey Dominates Valentine’s Day Frame

15 February 2015 11:13 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The studio executive that decided to release the big-screen adaptation of erotic best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey over the weekend of Valentine’s Day should see a healthy raise this week, as the R-rated romantic drama saw many of the book’s fans and curious moviegoers come out in droves. The film earned an estimated $81.7 million in its first three days, although close to half of that came from Valentine’s Day sales alone. In North America, Fifty Shades of Grey stands as the second-biggest February opening of all time (after The Passion of the Christ‘s $83.8 million), although it sold fewer tickets than 2001’s Hannibal when that thriller opened to $58 million 14 Februarys ago.

Domestically, the film now has the fifth-biggest opening for an R-rated film (after The Matrix Reloaded, American Sniper, The Hangover Part II and the aforementioned Passion). Another intriguing statistic: Fifty Shades had the largest opening for »

Box Office: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' spanks $81.6 million over Valentine's Day weekend

15 February 2015 11:04 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Fifty Shades of Grey" whipped the box office into shape this weekend, but how long will Mr. Grey's tutelage last? Sam Taylor-Johnson's adaptation of the best-selling E.L. James novel took in an estimated $81.6 million over the three-day weekend. It's expected to come very close to the $100 million mark for the four-day.  This weekend's result, however, is the fifth largest R-rated opening of all-time behind "The Matrix Reloaded," "American Sniper," "The Hangover Part II" and "The Passion of the Christ."  While "Grey" may be critic proof it's still not clear if its audience proof. The movie scored a very weak C+ Cinemascore which means word of mouth may not help it past its core fan base. That being said, "Grey" is still a major hit for Universal Pictures and its already earned a smashing $158 million overseas. Debuting in second place was Matthew Vaughn's "Kingsman: The Secret Service" with $35.6 million »

Around-the-World Roundup: 'Fifty Shades' Opens to Massive $158 Million Overseas

15 February 2015 10:08 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

In a somewhat surprising development, Fifty Shades of Grey is proving to be even more of a phenomenon internationally than it is in the U.S.

The movie earned a stunning $158 million from 58 markets this weekend. That's the second-biggest weekend ever for Universal Pictures International (behind Fast & Furious 6), and included their biggest single day ever (Valentine's Day at $55.1 million).

The movie set opening weekend records in 11 markets, including Italy ($9.1 million), Argentina and Poland. It also set a record for Universal Pictures in the U.K. ($21.1 million), France ($12 million), Russia ($10.5 million) and Brazil ($8.9 million). Other key markets include Germany ($15.2 million), Australia ($8.6 million), Mexico ($8.1 million) and Spain ($7.9 million).

The movie has a few more markets left to open, including South Korea later this month. It will be interesting to see how it holds up in the coming weeks; even if it drops like a rock, though, it should still wind up well over $300 million. »

Friday Report: Moviegoers Submit to 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

14 February 2015 8:56 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Fifty Shades of Grey had a strong first place debut on Friday, though Kingsman: The Secret Service was no slouch in second.

Playing at 3,646 locations, the big-screen adaptation of the insanely popular novel Fifty Shades of Grey opened to an estimated $30.2 million yesterday. That ranks fourth all-time among R-rated movies behind The Matrix Reloaded ($37.5 million), The Hangover Part II ($31.6 million) and American Sniper ($30.3 million).

It doesn't look quite as impressive when compared to past female-skewing book adaptations, though. The first Twilight movie took in $36 million on its first day*remember, that was before the series was a full-on phenomenon*while The Fault in our Stars opened to $26.1 million last June.

If Fifty Shades of Grey plays like those movies, it will wind up with less than $70 million over the four-day weekend. Universal isn't expecting it to do much better*their current forecast has it earning around $76 million.

Box Office: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' whips up $8.6 million Thursday night

13 February 2015 1:58 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Get ready for a lot of S&M references in this weekend's box office reporting.  The long awaited adaptation of E.L. James' bestseller "Fifty Shades of Grey" debuted in theaters Thursday night and whipped up an impressive $8.6 million. Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, "Fifty Shades" is expected to gross between $75-85 million over the four-day President's day weekend.  Like "Sex and the City" and the "Twilight" films before it, the romantic drama has keyed into a heavily female fan base that is making the opening a "must-see" event.  Critics, on the other hand, have generally been negative on the picture with nationwide reviews corresponding to a 27% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 47 on Metacritic.  Much to Universal Pictures' delight, fans simply don't care.  The $8.6 million Thursday tally is the second biggest for an R-rated movie behind 2011's "The Hangover Part II's" $10.4 million. »

'Fifty Shades' Thursday Night Box Office Sets New Records

13 February 2015 12:54 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures rolled out its highly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey for Thursday night preview screenings last night, taking in an estimated $8.6 million from 2,830 theaters. The Thursday tally is the second highest ever for an R-rated film, behind the Warner Bros.' comedy sequel The Hangover Part II, which took in $10.4 million from Thursday screenings back in 2011. Even though it earned a silver medal in all-time R rated Thurday Night openers, it did rack in two records for the box office books. The $8.6 million total is the highest Thursday gross for a February release, and it is also the highest in Universal Pictures history, besting Fast & Furious 6's $6.5 million in 2013.

Fifty Shades of Grey opens in 3,646 theaters today, 75 of which are in IMAX, with the adaptation of E.L. James' novel expected to pull in between $50 and $60 million this weekend. If it overperforms, there's a chance that it could break »

"Fifty Shades" Scores Hot Opening Night

13 February 2015 5:06 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first numbers are in and Universal's film adaptation of the erotic bestseller "Fifty Shades of Grey" has launched to a superb $8.6 million from Thursday night preview screenings.

That makes it Universal's highest grossing late night preview screenings ever, topping the $6.5 million for "Fast and Furious 6". It isn't the highest for an R-rated film though, with "The Hangover Part II" beating it with $10.4 million.

Officially the studio is expecting a $50 million opening over the four-day President's Day weekend, but other analysts think it will be in the higher $70-80 million range.

Fox's "Kingsman: The Secret Service" also opens this week and took in $1.4 million from Thursday night previews. Its Friday-Sunday total is expected to be in the $24-28 million range.

Friday Am Update: Fifty Shades of Grey opened to an estimated $8.6 million from Thursday night shows at 2,830 locations. That's the biggest Thursday night ever for Universal ahead of Fast & Furious 6 ($6.5 million), and ranks second all-time for R-rated movies behind The Hangover Part II ($10.4 million).It's also in the same class as 2014 blockbusters like Transformers: Age of Extinction ($8.75 million), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($8.7 million) and X-Men: Days of Future Past ($8.1 million). If it plays like those movies, it will wind up with around $100 million over its first four days. Of course, it could play like a Twilight movie and wind up around $50 million. It also remains to be seen what kind of impact a Saturday Valentine's Day has on the movie's weekend.Meanwhile, Kingsman: The Secret Service opened to $1.4 million at 2,569 locations. That's roughly on par with Taken 3's $1.5 million Thursday night haul last month. It now feels like »

Box Office Report: American Sniper Breaks Super Bowl Record

1 February 2015 9:14 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was another explosive weekend for American Sniper, which broke the record for the biggest Super Bowl weekend at the box office in its third week of wide release. Earning an estimated $31.9 million, Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-nominated drama continued to steamroll over the competition, including several wide releases that flopped or fizzled this weekend. Even with a strong take, the film dipped a bigger-than-expected 51% in its third frame, a bit worrying given the strong 28% hold that American Sniper has last week.

With an astounding $248.9 million take so far, American Sniper is already the fifth-highest grossing R-rated film of all-time. It is also a few days away from surpassing The Hangover Part II ($254.5 million), which also starred Bradley Cooper, to take fourth place on that chart. (Fun fact: Three of the five highest-grossing R-rated movies of all time in North America have Cooper in the lead role.) Beyond the Super Bowl record, »
