Hugh Jackman & Rooney Mara Connected By Collateral Beauty

13 May 2015 10:04 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Having just worked together as, respectively, Blackbeard and Tiger Lily on Joe Wright's Pan, Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara are set to be reunited. They've both signed on for Collateral Beauty, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's follow-up to his Sundance hit Me And Earl And The Dying Girl.Allan Loeb wrote the screenplay, which according to Variety revolves around a New York advertising agency, and a man - presumably Jackman's character - struggling with depression after a tragedy that turns his world upside down. Loeb has recently been churning out comedies like Here Comes The Boom, Just Go With It and The Dilemma, but his earlier work on dramas like Things We Lost In The Fire and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is probably a more relevant touchstone here...Gomez-Rejon, meanwhile, got his start on television with Glee and American Horror Story. He also directed this last year's clever remake of »

Hugh Jackman & Rooney Mara Reteam For 'Collateral Beauty' From 'Me And Earl And The Dying Girl' Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

13 May 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Later this summer fall, Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara will bring audiences into Joe Wright's "Pan." Iit seems the pair hit off because they've quickly lined up a new movie together. Read More: Joe Wright Enters Fairy Tale Land With First Trailer For 'Pan' With Hugh Jackman And Rooney Mara The duo will star in the indie drama "Collateral Beauty." Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who is running hot following the huge Sundance reception — which included two awards — for "Me And Earl And The Dying Girl," will direct the story about a New York City ad executive who slips into depression following a tragedy. So it sounds very promising, but our only reservation is that the script is from Allan Loeb, who tends to churn out stuff like "The Dilemma," "Just Go With It," "Rock Of Ages," and "Here Comes The Boom."  No word on when it will shoot, but »

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 movie review: stupor hero

13 April 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Hard to believe, I know, but this is a real movie that real people have unashamedly put their names to. Because a sweet paycheck trumps human dignity. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first movie

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Imagine being asked to feel sorry for the Three Stooges. Except there’s only one of them, a combination of Larry and Curly (incorporating Moe would bring too much gravitas and intelligence to the character). Stir for 90 minutes, and leave for undemanding moviegoers to serve themselves. And then do it all again, though with even less sense of anyone involved giving a damn or putting in any actual effort, because the first such attempt made an ungodly amount of money so why bother?

Presenting Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. It sounds like a Saturday Night Live sketch that thinks »

Hey bro, let it go: how the Frat Pack fell apart

13 March 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the noughties, Vince Vaughn and buddies including Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell could do no wrong, with megahits such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball. But the laughs have dried and the audience withered. What went wrong?

Vince Vaughn used to be funny. Or, more accurately, a surprisingly wide international audience used to find Vince Vaughn funny. The rambunctious persona premiered in Swingers – pure id in a party-hard alpha-male – then recycled in hit films such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball, made him a reliably lucrative booking. But last weekend saw his latest comedy – Unfinished Business, a farce about a work trip which gets out of hand – become the biggest flop of his career so far, with toxic reviews and audience apathy.

So far, so predictable: Vaughn’s recent back catalogue – Delivery Man, The Internship, The Watch and The Dilemma – have all crashed and burned at the box office. His last »

Box Office: Vince Vaughn, 'Unfinished Business,' and This Weekend's Winners and Losers

9 March 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Expect to see a lot of premature eulogies for Vince Vaughn's career today, after the disastrous opening of "Unfinished Business," just like you saw a lot of premature obituaries last week for Will Smith's career after the lackluster debut of "Focus."

True, "Business" was an especially spectacular flop, premiering in 10th place with only an estimated $4.8 million, less than half of the already modest $10 million pundits were predicting. That the movie is only the latest in a string of Vaughn flops (including "The Watch," "The Dilemma," "The Internship," and "Delivery Man") seems reason enough for pundits to start measuring the coffin.

Weep not for Vaughn. His hands and feet were immortalized in concrete outside Hollywood's Chinese Theatre just this past Wednesday. Next month, he'll star in the eagerly-anticipated second season on HBO's "True Detective," which, if nothing else, will remind those viewers who think of him only as »

Vince Vaughn’s ‘Unfinished Business’ Gives Him 5 Straight Box-Office Bombs

8 March 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Maybe HBO’s “True Detective” will turn things around for Vince Vaughn. The comedy actor’s new film “Unfinished Business” became his fifth consecutive — and worst — belly flop at the box office, taking in an anemic $4.8 million in its debut this weekend for distributor Twentieth Century Fox. Vaughn’s other recent misfires include “Delivery Man,” “The Internship,” “The Watch” and “The Dilemma.” A stint on the hit cable TV series seemed to work for Matthew McConaughey, whose Emmy for his work on “True Detective” was part of a career rebound that included a Best Actor Oscar for the “Dallas Buyers Club, »

Box Office: ‘Chappie’ Stumbles, ‘Unfinished Business’ Bombs

8 March 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Neill Blomkamp’s “Chappie” and “Unfinished Business” with Vince Vaughn added up to a weekend to forget at the U.S. box office.

Overall ticket sales plunged as “Chappie,” a science-fiction adventure about a sentient robot, topped charts with a weak $13.3 million from 3,201 locations. Going into the weekend, Sony Pictures was aiming for a debut of roughly $15 million and some analysts expected the film could hit $20 million. Reviews were tepid, and the picture is the latest in a long line of R-rated new releases such as “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Focus,” which may have hurt it with moviegoers looking for something that appeals to kids as well as adults.

“There’s been a glut of R-rated movies starting from the first of the year,” said Rory Bruer, Sony’s worldwide distribution chief. “I think there’s some R-rated fatigue.”

The odds may have been against “Chappie” from its inception. »

Vince Vaughn’s ‘Unfinished Business’ Flops, ‘Chappie’ Stumbles With $13.5 Million

7 March 2015 8:18 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The U.S. box office is as glum this weekend as the dystopian future depicted in one of the new releases.

Although off to a soft start, Neill Blomkamp’s robot thriller “Chappie” is No. 1 at the box office, aiming for a lower-than-expected $13 million to $13.5 million this weekend, while the comedy “Unfinished Business” is giving star Vince Vaughn the worst opening weekend of his career.

Sony’s “Chappie” launched to $4.5 million on Friday in the U.S. Blomkamp’s third film is far behind his previous two (dystopian thrillers as well): “District 9,” which opened to $37.4 million in 2009, and “Elysium,” which launched to $29.8 million in 2013.

Made on a modest $49 million budget (financed partly by Mrc and LStar Capital) and shot in South Africa, much like the low-budget hit “District 9,” the Johannesburg-set film could do better business overseas as it opens simultaneously in 53 markets, including the U.K., Germany, »

Vince Vaughn’s ‘Unfinished Business’ Bombs at Box Office

6 March 2015 4:41 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony’s sci-fier “Chappie” is marching toward a soft debut at the U.S. box office while Vince Vaughn is having the worst opening weekend of his career.

Vaughn’s R-rated comedy “Unfinished Business,” distributed by 20th Century Fox, is projected to see a dismal $5 million opening from 2,777 locations. The actor’s previous career-low was earned by 2013’s “Delivery Man,” which opened to $7 million domestically.

In the No. 1 position, “Chappie” will finish the weekend with an estimated $15 million, ahead of Fox Searchlight’s “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” and Warner Bros.’ second weekend of Will Smith’s “Focus,” which will battle for second with about $10 million each.

The two-week slump in the U.S. box office came after a 10% surge in moviegoing this year, with the industry hoping that Disney’s “Cinderella” can reignite business next weekend.

Neill Blomkamp’s “Chappie,” his third film, was made modestly for $49 million and shot in South Africa, »

Forecast: 'Chappie' to Lead Quiet First Weekend of March

5 March 2015 4:52 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The first weekend of March is poised to be another slow one at the domestic box office. Chappie should lead the way, though it will likely fall short of $20 million. Meanwhile, R-rated comedy Unfinished Business will almost certainly open below $10 million, which will make this the latest flop for star Vince Vaughn.Playing at 3,201 locations, Chappie marks the third feature from South African director Neill Blomkamp, who burst on to the scene in a big way with his 2009 debut District 9. Lacking any recognizable faces, District 9 was sold entirely on its unique, impressively-rendered sci-fi world. That strategy worked quite well, and the movie went on to earn $115.6 million at the domestic box office. It was also a hit with critics, and surprisingly scored an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.The District 9 connection has been a big part of the Chappie marketing campaign, with recent commercials going as »

Film Review: ‘Unfinished Business’

4 March 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A comedy with its heart in the right place and everything else bizarrely out of joint, “Unfinished Business” finds director Ken Scott following 2013’s “Delivery Man” with another dubious attempt to sell audiences on Vince Vaughn’s sensitive side. Playing a down-on-his-luck family man who takes an ill-advised business trip to Berlin with two unfunny sidekicks in tow (Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco), Vaughn is admittedly the least of the movie’s worries: Awkwardly wrapping a heartwarming message of self-acceptance in a layer of crude sexual humor, it’s like a date who tries to pat you on the back with one hand while feeling you up with the other. As such, “Unfinished” looks unlikely to do much business, or to end the nearly decade-long string of mediocrities (“Fred Claus,” “Four Christmases,” “The Dilemma,” “The Watch,” “The Internship”) that has plagued its star, whose fans are advised to keep whetting »

Watch: Nsfw Red-Band Clip For ‘Unfinished Business’ Highlights Vince Vaughn And His Imperceptible Penis & More

24 February 2015 1:34 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A dirty secret around The Playlist parts: we love Vince Vaughn. Or rather, a few of us really like Vince Vaughn when he is in R-Rated comedies like “Wedding Crashers” or…. well, maybe mostly “Wedding Crashers.” The last few years have been more than unkind to almost all of his comedy choices and the comedy projects that he and his team develop, from "Fred Claus," "Four Christmases," "Couples Retreat," The Dilemma," "The Watch" to more recent fare like “Delivery Man.” In short, Vaughn hasn’t starred in a worthwhile comedy since “The Break-Up” in 2006 which itself is still uneven (but much more grown-up than you’d expect). And so he’s got another comedy in the works, “Unfinished Business,” which once again taps Ken Scott, the French Canadian director of “Delivery Man” (which is a remake of Scott’s own “Starbuck” -- Hollywood came knocking and he answered).

Asa Butterfield Joins 'Out of This World'

2 February 2015 3:48 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ender's Game star Asa Butterfield has signed on to star in the sci-fi adventure Out of This World for Relativity Media. Relativity Studios is behind the project, which has Peter Chelsom (Hector and the Search for Happiness) set to direct. The story begins with a billionaire entrepreneur's mission to colonize Mars, which results in a female astronaut becoming pregnant on the planet.

The astronaut died during childbirth, but her infant son was raised in secrecy on Mars. 16 years later, after returning to Earth, the teenage boy (Asa Butterfield) enlists the help of a mission specialist and connects with a young woman he has been communicating with. They both set off on a road trip across America to find the father he never knew.

Allan Loeb (21, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, The Dilemma) wrote the original screenplay, with Peter Chelsom and Tinker Lindsay (Hector and the Search for Happiness) providing the most recent revisions. »
