He's a busy actor, hubby to pop superstar Fergie and proud papa to 8-month-old son Axl.

The Nicholas Sparks Limited Edition DVD Collection is another of those set releases that is the best and worst of all possible worlds. Serious fans are going to be happy to get collectible postcards, and a “personal letter from Nicholas Sparks,” but they already own the movies, and the discs don’t have any new bonuses.
On the other hand, if you don’t already own the movies (or only have one or two), this is a great collection to bring them all home at once. While there aren’t new bonuses, and the films aren’t remastered, or otherwise jazzed up with new treatments, most of the films include some solid bonuses anyway, and even the aging Message in a Bottle looks pretty good.
The Collection includes:

On a recent episode of her reality TV show, Lindsay Lohan claimed that she could have starred in the first "The Avengers" movie. But even though she told her manager that she wanted to be part of the cast, he didn't push hard enough to get her the part. Lohan went on to say that the role she wanted went to an "unknown" actress. She never actually revealed who this "unknown" is, but since there weren't that many female roles, we can take a guess. She can't be talking about Black Widdow or Pepper Potts, because the characters are playing by Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow. Both very known actresses. So Lohan must have wanted the role of Shield Agent Maria Hill, played by Cobie Smulders. Even though Smulders starred on "How I Met Your Mother" for nine seasons and recently appeared on "Safe Haven," Lohan is likely not familiar with her. »
The book’s story follows a young couple whose lives intertwine with an old man looking back on the relationship he had with a lost love.
The pic is set to bow April 3, 2015.
Fox 2000 acquired the novel after an aggressive bidding war last February when the studio outbid Warner Bros. and Relativity. Given the success of previous Sparks’ novels like “Safe Haven,” “The Lucky One” and “The Notebook,” Fox views this as a high priority with hopes of similar results at the box office.

“Just keep your hands on my face in the rain.” To say that movies that started their lives as Nicholas Sparks novels have a well-established style when it comes to their content and aesthetics would be maybe about the biggest understatement of the year. Take two impossibly attractive young people, add some tragic reason they can’t be together, cut it with a love that will conquer all, and pretty much you’ve got the formula—so long as your drama is occurring in an idyllic, rural setting. It gets to the point where every time a new Nicholas Sparks movie starts getting advertised, people can tell that’s exactly what they’re looking at from the first few seconds of the first trailer, and their responses are downright Pavlovian. Not into the Nicholas Sparks thing? Bet you let out an involuntary groan. Love everything the man does? Then it’s the same deal, but »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.
“RoboCop” released on Wednesday to get a jump on Valentine’s Day weekend and is off to a fair start despite the winter storms. Marketing has been targeted heavily toward younger males who make up the Marvel crowd and older fans of the original 1987 classic. Social statistics suggest that engagement rates are high on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter (full disclosure: Moviepilot is working with Sony on this campaign).
“RoboCop’s” viral marketing campaign started even before production had begun on the movie: In July 2012 an OmniCorp website went online, »

Nicholas Sparks has created an empire from the hopeful yet tragic loves stories you read on vacation or watch after too many bottles of wine. Like Nancy Meyers, whose films always incorporate droolworthy decor, location is key. And Sparks’ films are almost exclusively set on the coasts of North or South Carolina–a nod to his adopted home of New Bern, Nc. Over the years numerous titles have been adapted from breezy beach reads into sugar-coated love stories with a male and female lead much too beautiful to be of this Earth.
Some stand out: The Notebook has become required viewing for any female and/or person with a beating heart, while Miley Cyrus‘ transformation from Disney girl to Twerk Queen included a pit stop in a role Sparks created just for her. But do all Nicholas Sparks novels-turned-blockbusters include letter-writing or a devastating illness in the final act? »

Over President's Day weekend, The Lego Movie should hold on to first place ahead of three 80s remakes. With its strong Valentine's Day appeal, About Last Night will likely be the strongest of the newcomers, while Robocop will have a tough time bouncing back from its poor Wednesday opening. With the East Coast buried under a nasty snowstorm on Wednesday and Thursday, there will be a lot of talk about the weather's effect on the box office. While some people will inevitably stay away from theaters, the aggregate impact is often overstated: comparing week-over-week drops during similar events suggests a 10-to-12 percent drop in box office is the worst-case scenario.The RoboCop remake got a jump on the competition by opening at 3,372 locations on Wednesday. This is Sony/Columbia's second remake of a Paul Verhoeven sci-fi movie*the first was 2012's Total Recall, which opened to $25.6 million on its way to a disappointing $58.9 million. »

Though director Lasse Hallstrom has struggled to find decent work outside of melodrama over the past few years, maybe working with an Oscar-nominated write can up his game. Hallstrom has been behind the camera for sappy films like Dear John, Safe Haven and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, but Deadline reports he will next team up with Craig Borten, fresh off his Oscar nomination for scripting last year's Dallas Buyers Club starring Matthew McConaughey. What are they working on? Well, they will adapt Ron Chernow's biographical book Titan: The Life Of John D. Rockefeller for Relativity Media. Read on! The man whose name has become synonymous with wealth, the shrewd businessman made his riches in Standard Oil, but was pursued by the likes of Teddy Roosevelt for his business practices for 30 years from the 1870s to late 1890s. In his book, Chernow describes Rockefeller, "What makes him problematic—and why »

Screenwriter Craig Borten knows a little something about success, as his first produced screenplay for Jean-Marc Vallée.s Dallas Buyers Club, co-written with Melisa Wallack, has earned him worldwide acclaim and an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay. For his next film, he.ll be taking on another biographical tale for the monolithic story of John D. Rockefeller, as he.ll be adapting Ron Chernow.s 1998 book Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, which Relativity has recently optioned. There.s nothing that keeps me more humble than watching millionaire.s making money playing billionaires. As Deadline states, directorial duties for this project have been given to Lasse Hallström, the Swedish filmmaker whose early career and eventual breakout film What.s Eating Gilbert Grape are immensely more interesting than his last few English flicks, which include the two Nicholas Sparks. adaptations Safe Haven and Dear John, as »
Relativity Media is putting together a biopic of entrepreneur John D. Rockefeller, and the studio has enlisted The Cider House Rules and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape director Lasse Hallstrom to take the helm. Deadline reports that Hallstrom is attached to direct an adaptation of Ron Chernow’s book Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller with Oscar-nominated Dallas Buyers Club scribe Craig Borten penning the screenplay. As the world's first billionaire, Rockefeller is certainly one of most fascinating giants of the 19th and 20th centuries. He founded Standard Oil in 1870 and, as oil became an important resource, saw his fortune rise substantially until Standard Oil gained nearly complete control of the market. Rockefeller was also a philanthropist, giving away much of his wealth throughout his lifetime. Hit the jump for more, including a synopsis of the book. Hallstrom most recently wrapped the light drama The Hundred-Foot Journey with Helen Mirren »

We can now add Julianne Hough to the group of A-list Hollywood ladies with a pixie cut. The Safe Haven star debuted her side-swept and layered short new 'do on Saturday morning while heading to a nail salon in Beverly Hills.

The long lock transformation took place at West Hollywood's Nine Zero One salon, where the actress' pal and hairstylist Riawna Capri documented the entire process via Instagram.

The comedy movie follows underachiever David Wozniak (Vaughn), who learns that, thanks to selling his sperm 20 years earlier, he has fathered 533 children — and now they all want to know who he is.
Chris Pratt (TV’s Parks and Recreation) and Cobie Smulders (Safe Haven) also star in the PG-13 film, which was written and directed by Ken Scott, the director and one of the writers of the original Starbuck.
Which is interesting, because 2011′s Starbuck got much better reviews than Delivery Man, even though (judging by the trailer), the new movie almost looks like a step by step carbon copy of the original but with different faces. Starbuck, however, was rated R, so maybe »
