Ride Along Blu-Ray Review

15 April 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s clearly the mentality that the writers of Ride Along brought to the table. And I can’t blame them, given the tremendous success that buddy comedies have found in Hollywood, particularly in recent years with action-heavy team-up comedies like 21 Jump Street and 2 Guns. Luckily, there’s more to Ride Along than just a rehash of those hits.

The main draw for most will be watching Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, two talented actors with supremely different personalities, share the screen. Cube, physically imposing and still radiating the same fierce anger that made his rapping work so iconic, fits perfectly into the role of Alabama Pd Detective James Payton, a tough-as-nails cop who relishes the chance to break protocol and kick in some heads.

Similarly, Hart, famed for his manic energy and underdog rep, is well-suited for the part of Ben Barber, »

Why Did Halle Berry’s ‘Frankie & Alice’ Languish on the Shelf?

2 April 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It took three years, a Golden Globe nomination and possibly a slew of recent hit films targeting African-American audiences for Halle Berry’s “Frankie & Alice” to finally open in 125 theaters on Friday.

Geoffrey Sax’s gritty drama based on the true story of a 1970s go-go dancer with dissociative identity disorder was shot in 2008 and, after a decade in development and a year on the shelf, it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to fairly positive reviews in May 2010 and screened at the AFI Film Festival six months later.

But after a one-week qualifying run in a single Los Angeles theater during awards season in December 2010, the movie vanished. The film’s producers Access Motion Pictures never followed through with the February release that had been planned through Freestyle Releasing and yet Berry was still nominated for a Golden Globe in 2011, and won an NAACP Image Award and a Prism »

Brad Pitt's 'Fury' and '22 Jump Street' win Sony Pictures CinemaCon preview

27 March 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - Sony Pictures took center stage Wednesday afternoon at the 2014 CinemaCon as the Culver City based studio previewed the rest of its 2014 slate.  Unlike earlier studio presentations, Sony discussed each released briefly before playing one long feature with previews of all their new films.  There were two pictures that stood out above all the rest: Chris Miller and Phil Lord's "22 Jump Street" and David Ayers' World War II thriller "Fury." "22 Jump Street" is, of course, the sequel to the hit comedy "21 Jump Street" and Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back as mismatched undercover partners Schmidt and Jenko respectively.  The film's early trailers have teased that Lord and Miller (who are coming off "The Lego Movie") haven't lost a step, but the footage Sony played today?  No joke, "22" has a chance to be better than the original. You probably already know that Schmidt and Jenko are now heading to college, »

Grand Budapest Hotel overtakes Need for Speed

26 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Wes Anderson enjoys first UK No 1 as takings look set to eclipse his Fantastic Mr Fox

The winner

When it debuted in third place with £1.53m from 284 cinemas, Grand Budapest Hotel always looked on course to become Wes Anderson's biggest live-action film at UK cinemas, displacing The Royal Tenenbaums (£3.33m lifetime). A week later, with an expansion to 372 venues, the film found itself in second place in the UK box office chart. And now, in its third week of release, the Middle European caper grabs the top spot, dethroning video-game adaptation Need for Speed. With third-weekend takings of £1.27m from 458 sites, Grand Budapest Hotel has earned £6.31m in just 17 days. The film has a real shot at overtaking Anderson's animated family flick Fantastic Mr Fox (£9.19m) to become his biggest-ever UK hit.

It's not unprecedented for a film to rise slowly to the top of the box office chart, »

Jamie Foxx And Kevin Hart May Team Up For The Black Phantom

11 March 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Funnyman Kevin Hart has been having a pretty stellar year so far. Both Ride Along, Hart’s January action comedy with Ice Cube, and About Last Night, his modern romantic comedy, earned generally positive reviews and became runaway box-office successes (Ride Along had the highest opening gross ever in the month of January). With rom-com sequel Think Like A Man Too set to give Hart three for three this June, it doesn’t look like he’ll be fading away from the multiplex anytime soon.

Now, Variety is reporting that Hart is close to signing on to star alongside Jamie Foxx (who, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Rio 2Horrible Bosses 2 and Annie on the way, is looking at a very successful 2014 himself) in Screen Gems’ action comedy The Black Phantom.

The studio is also currently in talks with Ride Along director Tim Story to helm the flick. Will Packer and Will Gluck are producing. »

How Did Kevin Hart Get So Damn Hot?

6 March 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With the current box office success of “Ride Along” and “About Last Night,” Kevin Hart has become one of the hottest names in comedy, known for an ability to appeal to a demographically wide audience that bridges the racial divide. It’s an attribute that’s no accident.

Hart, 33, who started in standup comedy, models his career on such online-savvy music industry giants as Jay-z and Beyonce, and uses his social-media presence — including more than 10 million Twitter followers — to brand himself and his work. “Ride Along” co-star Ice Cube is duly impressed by the results.

“By him being just a cool dude, Kevin has a delivery that can work for a totally urban audience,” says Cube, “but he also has a delivery that if he ever hosted the Oscars, he could pull it off and it wouldn’t be a stretch, so watch out, Ellen.”

Of course it doesn’t »

Lego Movie edifice growing for third week, with Non-Stop static at No 2

4 March 2014 9:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscars buzz boosts UK box office and whether growling on a plane or voicing an animation, it's Liam Neeson's moment

• Review of The Lego Movie

• Review of Non-Stop

• More on the UK box office

The winner

Adding another £4.79m in the past seven days, The Lego Movie now stands at a sturdy £26.67m after three weeks of play. That puts it level with the lifetime tallies of blockbusters including Spider-Man 2 (£26.72m) and Ocean's Eleven (£26.47m), and ahead of fellow animations including Ratatouille (£24.80m) and Wall-e (£22.91m). The Lego Movie will pretty soon overtake the likes of Shrek (£29m) and A Bug's Life (£29.45m) and is clearly headed into the mid-30s (£m).

Although box office for The Lego Movie is certainly skewed to the weekend, its decent performance in the Monday-to-Thursday period suggests that it is picking up a true adult audience, rather than merely adult chaperones of children. »

'Lego' Leads Not-So-Awesome February

3 March 2014 4:28 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Lego Movie was the only clear winner during a so-so February at the box office. Overall domestic grosses came in at around $700 million, which was a 13 percent improvement over last year. Still, it's way off from 2012's $818.2 million record, and is also noticeably lower than 2010 and 2009.Through the end of February, year-to-date box office is trending up 10 percent from 2013. If that pattern can continue, 2014 will be the first year in which the domestic box office breaks the $11 billion mark.The Lego Movie dominated the month of February, earning more than the next four titles combined. The surprise animated hit opened to $69 million, which is the second-highest February opening ever. In the weeks since, it hasn't dropped by more than 37 percent; through the end of February, Lego had already earned $192.7 million at the domestic box office.If it holds up well against Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Lego will wind up with at least $270 million total. »

Sponsored Video: Trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Continued

28 February 2014 2:01 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today we brought you the news that writer-director Adam McKay saying "definitely no" to the chances of a third Anchorman movie. However, if you're desperate to see more new material from Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and Champ Kind (David Koechner) on the big screen then you're in luck, as Paramount is releasing a brand new cut of last year's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues - appropriately titled Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Continued. It's bigger, bolder and Burgundier, and it comes complete with 763 new jokes!

"When my editor told me we had a whole different version of the movie that was more than two hours long with nearly 800 new jokes, I was shocked," said McKay with regards to the new cut. "But when Paramount said they were actually going to put it in theatres, I did a 1950’s spit take. If you're a hardcore Anchorman fan, »

Ride Along Director Will Helm Diplomats, The Tale Of Dennis Rodman And Kim Jong Un

24 February 2014 8:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now there is a headline I never thought I would write. I even struggled with a way to distill it down to something clever and cutting, but there’s really no other way to put it. Apparently Tim Story, the director of Ride Along, has signed on to make the film Diplomats, which tells the story of the relationship between basketball star Dennis Rodman and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

For those who may have been unaware of this unlikely bromance, Rodman made headlines not so long ago by singing “Happy Birthday” to Kim Jong Un before playing in an exhibition basketball game in Pyongyang. Rodman has taken part in what’s called ‘basketball diplomacy,’ little more than exhibition games between North Korea’s basketball team (yes, they have one) and a crew of aging NBA stars. I think the idea is to foster some sort of dialogue between »
