As The Lego Ninjago Movie karate chops it’s way into theaters, the stars behind the voices of the animated film took time to answer questions from some of their youngest, and funniest, fans.
During People’s Kid Interview, the cast — which includes Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Dave Franco, Jackie Chan, Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, Zach Woods and Kumail Nanjiani — answered questions from kids ages 5 to 8 about everything from their knowledge of karate to who farted during production.
When 5-year-old Kendall asked what they think the funniest part of the movie is, Munn and Theroux unanimously agreed it’s the »

When Phil Lord and Chris Miller turned animation on its head with “The Lego Movie” in 2014, they proved you could successfully make a punk rock hero’s journey that was both reverential and iconoclastic. This year Chris McKay expanded into Gotham with “The Lego Batman Movie,” and Charlie Bean takes a naturalistic turn with his martial arts brick adventure, “The Lego Ninjago Movie.” Despite embracing different genres, they are variations on family, friendship, and self-discovery.
“When I first saw ‘The Lego Movie,’ I thought this was so different and so cool,” said Bean, who makes his feature debut after helming the “Tron Uprising” animated series. “It was a garage band type of aesthetic. It doesn’t care about the rules. It can be live-action, it can use different graphic design. We can break the rules and do whatever we want. It’s funnier, more brash, and, at the same time, »

Even after decades of toy-based movies, it still seemed impossible that the 2014 animated film The Lego Movie could ever work. A movie that uses the minifigs that cause kids delight and parents frustration when they fall underfoot? Ridiculous. And yet, The Lego Movie was a surprisingly, gleefully anarchic story that managed to rise above […]

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” kicked off to $3.4 million from Thursday evening previews.
The R-rated action film is expected to top the box office and keep the September movie-going resurgence chugging along. It is on pace to earn more than $40 million over the course of its debut weekend.
Twentieth Century Fox, the studio behind the picture, said it compared favorably with other September bows for action films — “The Equalizer” picked up $1.4 million in previews, while “The Magnificent Seven” nabbed $1.7 million. The first “Kingsman” grossed $1.4 million on its way toward a $128.3 million domestic haul. Marv backed the picture with Fox.
“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” brings back original stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong, and recruits franchise newcomers Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, and Elton John. Matthew Vaughn once again directs the picture. The »

The Kingsman spy agents and Lego toys are back on the big screen in Kingsman: The Golden Circle and The Lego Ninjago Movie. Anticipated biopics are also hitting theaters this weekend, with Emma Stone and Steve Carell portraying Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, respectively, in Battle of the Sexes and Jake Gyllenhaal as Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman in the drama Stronger.
Read on to find out what The Hollywood Reporter's critics are saying about the new offerings (as well as which film will likely top the weekend box office).

Once upon a time we used to tell stories; now we just tell stories about how we used to tell stories. At least, that’s how it feels to watch a consistently milquetoast, comfortably middlebrow bit of true-life fluff like “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” which does for Winnie the Pooh what “Finding Neverland” did for Peter Pan (which is to say that it takes a formative and utterly unique work of literature and reverse engineers it into a passable biopic that has no hope of changing the world or anyone in it).
It’s a shame, because A.A. Milne’s personal and professional lives are both fertile dramatic territory, and the film’s script — by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Simon Vaughan — makes sure to point out all of the interesting movies that could have been mined from this material as they pass by and fade out of sight. Instead, we’re »

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle served up $3.4 million in Thursday-night previews at the North American box office, more than double the $1.4 in previews earned by Kingsman: The Secret Service.
Tracking suggests the cheeky action-comedy from 20th Century Fox will debut in the $40 million-$45 million range this weekend, ahead of the $36.2 million domestic bow of Secret Service in February 2015. A sleeper hit, the first Kingsman went on to earn $414.4 million globally.

It started as The Lego Ninjago Movie, now it's just Ninjago. Anyway you slice this animated free-for-all, it doesn't measure up to The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie. The story, based on a line of building sets that debuted in 2011, concerns high school students who have secret lives as ninjas. Why? They need to protect their hometown of Ninjago, a nation constructed from Lego blocks. It's cool to have them voiced by Fred Armisen, Kumail Nanjiani, Abbi Jacobson, Michael Peña and Zach Woods. But all the caffeinated action »
September 2017 is currently pacing 15.6% ahead of 2016 with a calendar gross of $467.3 million, putting the month on a record pace, $48 million ahead of where 2015 was at the same time period before delivering $626.4 million, the largest September calendar gross ever. Almost half of September's total at this point is thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line's It, which is looking to do strong numbers again this weekend, but will fall from its #1 perch after two straight weeks on top. Debuting in wide release this weekend is Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle and it should have enough juice to take the weekend top spot while Warner Animation Group's The LEGO Ninjago Movie is looking to finish in the runner-up position. Entertainment Studios' is going social with the R-rated horror Friend Request debuting in just over 2,500 theaters and likely to finish in the top five (albeit with minimal returns) while Roadside Attractions is »

Social media has become a window into modern lives, but not an unfiltered one; users curate the way they appear online, often with disingenuous results. It was only a matter of time before the darker side of social media — cyber-stalking, online bullying, and slut-shaming — worked its way into the horror genre. While 2015’s “Unfriended” playfully exposed the double-lives of teenagers (with the majority of the film taking place on a computer screen), “Friend Request” is like unofficial sequel that focuses on the same themes.
But while the film uses social media as a catalyst for murder when a social pariah commits suicide, it does so with much muddier results.
“Friend Request” limits the computer screen activity to an opening montage, which swims through Laura’s (Alycia Debnam-Carey) life via her Facebook feed: photos and videos of parties, dinners and drunken nights out with her friends, congratulatory posts about charity work, »

The Lego Ninjago Movie opens this Friday, September 22nd and we couldn't be more excited! This is the third installment in the Lego series, and although it's not connected directly to The Lego Movie or The Lego Batman Movie, we fully expect the same level of fun and hilarity, and possibly even more action (they are ninjas after all)!
The battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all normal teens but also secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd's dad. The awesome »

The debut feature from fashion luminaries Kate and Laura Mulleavy (of Rodarte fame), “Woodshock” begins with an agonized weed dispensary worker rolling a joint, lacing it with poison, and lighting it up for her terminally ill mother. Pot is legal in California, but dying with dignity is not, and so this sort of thing has to be done on the sly. Theresa (Kirsten Dunst) is devastated that it has to be done at all — and disturbed by her role in facilitating it — but she can’t bear to leave her mom in such pain.
The corpse isn’t even cold before Theresa begins to break down. Grief always carries the trimmings of psychosis, but this is something else — she’s not just mourning, she’s practically living a Polanski film. And things don’t really get any better for her after she’s responsible for a mix-up at the office »
