Everything must go for John Krasinski and Emily Blunt ... at least on the West Coast, where they just struck another deal to unload a home, but for way below the original asking price. John and Emily bought the Ojai, CA home for $2.15 million back in 2012 ... then put it on the market last year with realtor Patty Waltcher for $4.25 mil. They didn't get any takers, so they slashed the price, and slashed ... and slashed some more »

The 1990s saw a number of leaps forward in computer generated effects, from Terminator 2: Judgment Day at the beginning of the decade to The Matrix near the end. Hollywood blockbusters reflected the boom in visual effects accordingly and some films hold up better than others – 1995's Jumanji fits right in the middle.
In line with the special effects wizardry that had brought dinosaurs to the big screen in Jurassic Park a couple of years prior, Joe Johnston's wacky fantasy adventure unleashed a jungle on small town America with funny and scary results. With a reboot/belated sequel on the horizon, it's interesting to look back at how this one is more fondly remembered, whether as a visual effects extravaganza or as an action packed family movie. »
Will Ferrell is attached to star in a comedy based on the true story of a successful 1968 expedition to the North Pole with Temple Hill producing for Sony.
The project is based on Guy Lawson’s article in the New York Times Magazine titled “An Insurance Salesman and a Doctor Walk Into a Bar, and End Up at the North Pole: The Story of an Accidentally Pioneering Expedition.”
The story follows a ragtag group of six middle-aged men from Minnesota who spontaneously decide over a beer to mount a snowmobile expedition to the North Pole. The team manages to overcome a daunting array of obstacles to make the first undisputed expedition ever to reach the North Pole.
No director or writer is attached. Jonathan Kadin will oversee the film for the studio.
The article begins, “The twin-prop plane swung low, tilting its wings and heading north, only to circle back »

There are a lot of good movies about alcoholism, that doesn’t make them easy to watch, by no means. The very idea of making a movie, an entertainment, about addiction, of any kind, if it’s done with any amount of honesty, can make for a grueling experience to watch.
Just from memory you have The Lost Weekend, Leaving Las Vegas, Shakes the Clown, Everything Must Go and the more recent Blue Jasmine with a pill popping, wine swilling woman in deep denial at its center.
I’m sure there are many more, all of these are worthwhile films. To this list you can definitely add Glassland, an independent movie from Ireland. What irony that a movie about alcoholism, and a good one at that, would come from Ireland. I’m Irish myself, and Ireland, much like countries such as Australia, Scotland, Japan and…the United States for that matter, »
