Peter Bart: From Bats To Bugs, Superheroes Find A Way To Stretch Spandex Franchises

Peter Bart: From Bats To Bugs, Superheroes Find A Way To Stretch Spandex Franchises
The new Ant-Man epic is a big hit, again raising the question what is the box office magic embedded in Marvel’s superhero (or super-insect) movies? How long will it sustain?

The “magic” is a relatively new phenomenon: Thirty years ago this summer, in fact, Peter Guber ran into a brick wall trying to persuade Warner Bros to finance a superhero movie. The creative types at the studio didn’t buy either the genre or the title – Batman. Not ones to be rebuffed, Guber and his then-partner Jon Peters went to work on the studio’s merchandising and foreign sales teams to rally support.

Not only did the movie ultimately get made (Tim Burton directed), but superhero movies have held the keys to the kingdom ever since — Ant-Man and the Wasp is Marvel’s 20th. Seven of last year’s 11 top-grossing movies were proud (?) representatives of this genre. “Hollywood’s

‘Mute’ Proves Paul Rudd Is Still Somehow Underrated

Minor spoilers for Mute follow below. Everybody loves Paul Rudd. He’s one of the most affable actors working today, and his everyman demeanor allows his weirder comedic instincts (see: Wet Hot American Summer) to sneak up on audiences undetected. Even then, when Rudd goes on a goofy riff like “Slappa da bass” in I Love You, Man, he’s incredibly lovable. And now he’s even an Avenger! Paul Rudd, America’s Sweetheart, is a Marvel Comics superhero. And yet, in spite of all of that, it feels like we’re still sleeping on just how talented an actor …

Lena Dunham’s Breakthrough and the Evolution of Joe Swanberg: Janet Pierson Looks Back at 10 Years of SXSW Film

Lena Dunham’s Breakthrough and the Evolution of Joe Swanberg: Janet Pierson Looks Back at 10 Years of SXSW Film
Unlike Sundance or Cannes, the SXSW Film Festival has undergone rapid changes over the past decade. Tied in with the swirling chaos of its Interactive and Music sections, the Austin-based event is known for the discovery of low-budget features and as a launch pad for edgy studio projects favored by the city’s hipsters.

Much of SXSW’s identity took shape during the early aughts, when current iTunes independent film coordinator Matt Dentler brought a range of new American talent into the program. When he left in 2008 for a job in New York, incoming SXSW film producer Janet Pierson was a programming newcomer but a veteran of scene. With her husband, John Pierson, she shepherded the careers of independent filmmakers like Kevin Smith, Spike Lee, and Errol Morris. With SXSW, she was tasked with funneling that experience into the ever-changing ecosystem of film and television.

To commemorate her 10th year

Segel Inspired By Brand's Attitude

Segel Inspired By Brand's Attitude
Jason Segel based his character in I Love You, Man on Russell Brand - because the British funnyman's onset charisma was so strong.

Segel and Brand starred together in the 2008 hit Forgetting Sarah Marshall, in which Brand plays an overly-confident, womanising rock star.

And the comedian's attitude during filming was so impressive, Segel stole his moves for his very next movie role.

He says, "I was so jealous of Russell for how much he 'popped' in Forgetting Sarah Marshall that I thought it was an opportunity to do my American version of him. So I put on a swagger and tried to be quite cavalier.

"Russell has this attitude that I don't have. He's like: 'This is who I am, Take it or leave it'."

State Of Play Tops U.K. Box Office Chart
Russell Crowe and Dame Helen Mirren's thriller State Of Play has stormed to the top of the U.K. box office in its opening weekend (25-26Apr09), with takings of $2.175 million (£1.5 million).

The movie, which sees Mirren star as Crowe's newspaper editor, knocked Reese Witherspoon's Monsters Vs. Aliens in to second place, earning $1.576 (£1.087 million).

Vin Diesel's high-speed action film Fast & Furious dropped to three, pulling in $1.525 million (£1.052 million), while comedy 17 Again, starring Zac Efron, was at four, garnering $1.486 million (£1.025 million).

Rounding out the top five with takings of $1.027 million (£708,071) was I Love You, Man starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel.

Move Over Miley, Zac Efron is New Tween Box-Office Fave!
Zac Efron's "17 Again" unseats Miley Cyrus' "Hannah Montana the Movie" as the weekend's box-office champ! "17 Again" made $24.1 million, making it the No. 1 film in North America! Meanwhile, "Hannah Montana" fell to No. 4 with $12.7 million.

Efron joins the likes of Kevin James ("Paul Blart: Mall Cop"), Liam Neeson ("Taken"), Tyler Perry ("Madea Goes to Jail"), and Cyrus in changing the rules in Hollywood on who should take the box-office crown.

Meanwhile, Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck must settle for No. 2. Their flick, "State of Play," took in $14.1 million. But apparently, Universal Pictures is happy with its modest outcome.

Another new release, Lionsgate's actioner, "Crank: High Voltage" failed to match "Fast & Furious'" stellar box-office power. The Jason Statham sequel only made $6.5 million debuting at No. 6.

Here's the complete Top 10 box-office films for weekend of April 17:

Miley Cyrus is Box-Office Queen! "Hannah Montana: The Movie" Opened Huge!

For those doubting the tweens' box-office power, look no further than this past weekend. Walt Disney's "Hannah Montana: The Movie" opened with $34 million in ticket sales!

Not only that, "Hannah Montana" also scored the biggest opening day ever for a G-rated live-action movie with Friday's $17.3 million success!

Previous box-office champ, "Fast & Furious" fell to second place with $28.8 million. But so far, the racing adventure's domestic take totaled to $118 million, while its international total has topped $200 million.

Not bad for a formulaic film with ho-hum acting.

Meanwhile, other new films didn't do as good at the box-office. Seth Rogen's "Observe and Report" only managed to catch $11.1 million, while Fox's "Dragonball Evolution" debuted at No. 8 with $4.7 million in box-office take...yikes!

Here's the complete list of Top 10 box-office films for weekend of April 10th:

1. "Hannah Montana: The Movie," $34 million.

2. "Fast & Furious," $28.8 million.

‘Hannah Montana’ Back on Top

Miley CyrusDisney Channel alter ego Hannah Montana set more box office records, putting the 16-year-old child star back at number one. Hannah Montana: The Movie made $34 million over the Easter weekend, the biggest family film and the second largest overall for the holiday 3-day. The estimated total is especially impressive considering her audience woke up early this morning to hunt for eggs.

Last year her Best of Both Worlds Concert was the biggest pure 3-D opening and set the record for largest Super Bowl weekend. Now she’s back with a G-rated, semi-autobiographical narrative about the pressures of being a major star. It’s a bittersweet day for Disney, who is celebrating the biggest April opening for the studio while Cyrus continues to state publicly she won’t be back for a sequel. By the time another movie is ready the tweens will have outgrown her any way. My “achy breaky heart” is broken.

Fast & Furious Wins Box Office Race With Huge Opening Haul
Fast & Furious raced to the top of the U.S. box office chart scooping a staggering $72.5 million (£50 million) in its opening weekend (03-05Apr09).

After skipping sequels 2 Fast 2 Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Vin Diesel returned to the franchise for the fourth installment, and proved to be the magic ingredient.

Monsters vs Aliens took second place with $33.5 million (£22.6 million), followed by The Haunting in Connecticut with $9.6 million (£6.5 million)

Nicolas Cage's thriller Knowing was fourth with $8.1 million (£5.5 million), followed by Paul Rudd comedy I Love You, Man with $7.9 million (£5.3 million).

Knowing Outsmarts Competition At U.S. Box Office
Nicolas Cage's new sci-fi thriller Knowing has topped the competition at the U.S. box office, taking in $24.8 million (£17.2 million) in its opening weekend (20-22Mar09).

The actor's role, as a widower whose young son has a cryptic premonition, helped the film topple over new star-studded comedy I Love You, Man, which came in second.

The film, starring Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Rashida Jones, Sarah Burns and Jaime Pressly, debuted at $18 million (£12.5 million), while Julia Roberts' spy thriller Duplicity opened in the third spot with $14 million (£9.7 million).

Dropping from number one to the fourth spot is Disney movie Race to Witch Mountain, starring former wrestler Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, taking in another $13 million (£9 million) in its second week.

Rounding out the top five is superhero film Watchmen, which fell from the second spot, earning another $6.7 million (£4.6 million) at the weekend. The film boasts a three-week total of $98 million (£68 million).

The Buddy System

The Buddy System
Jason Segel and Paul Rudd are experts at the delicate art of setting up a punch line. And, as they make abundantly clear in the new film I Love You, Man, they're especially nimble at playing off each other, working in tandem to achieve maximum hilarity. "What's been great about working with a lot of the same people is we kind of finish each other's sentences," says Rudd. "So it's like, 'Oh, I can set this up so Jason's gonna hit the home run.' " Those "same people" would be the tight-knit gang of guys who make up the Judd Apatow fraternity -- the improv-happy actors, writers, and directors who often take part in films produced and/or directed by the comedy god. Segel and Rudd have been involved in a number of them, including the monster hit Knocked Up and last year's Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which had Rudd stealing

Quotable New 'I Love You, Man' Posters

I've got high hopes for I Love You, Man, even if I never want to hear the phrase "bromantic comedy" again. You know, it works about three times and then you have to retire it, like "manscaping" or "Nfc Champion Arizona Cardinals."

It's a clever enough idea for a comedy, with Paul Rudd trying to find a guy to be the best man at his wedding. The only trouble is, he's always hung out with girls so he doesn't have any guy friends. A series of platonic man-on-man dates commence whereby Rudd settles on Jason Segel. Then it's The Odd Couple, I think.

Some very strange new posters for I Love You, Man popped up at Imp Awards, featuring what we can only assume are quotes from the movie that don't yet have a context to us.

     

 

I Love You, Man will fill theaters (leaving the requisite seat in between dudes) beginning March 20th.

More I Love You, Man Posters

A few more posters from I Love You, Man has surfaced over at Impa.com. They’re billed as “double wild" posters and feature some sayings from the comedy, which stars Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Rashida Jones, Andy Samberg, J.K. Simmons, Jane Curtin, Jon Favreau and Jaime Pressly. Opening March 20, the Jon Hamburg-directed flick centers on friendless Peter Klaven (Rudd) who goes on a series of man-dates to find a Best Man for his wedding. He forms a bond with Sydney (Segel), but the new friendship puts a strain on his relationship with his fiancée (Jones).

New Restricted I Love You, Man Clip

Today we have a new restricted clip from the upcoming Paul Rudd comedy "I Love You, Man," featuring a scene in which Rudd and his fiancee Rashida Jones are listening to advice from her friends. Plot: Peter Klaven (Rudd) is a successful real estate agent who, upon getting engaged to the woman of his dreams, Zooey (Rashida Jones), discovers, to his dismay and chagrin, that he has no male friend close enough to serve as his Best Man. Peter immediately sets out to rectify the situation, embarking on a series of bizarre and awkward "man-dates," before meeting Sydney Fife (Jason Segel), a charming, opinionated man with whom he instantly bonds. But the closer the two men get, the more Peter's relationship with Zooey suffers, ultimately forcing him to choose between his fiancee and his new found "bro."

Reverse Peristalsis and Oral Intimacy - Brought To You By ‘I Love You, Man’

Weeks ago I was lucky enough to catch a way early preview of John Hamburg’s I Love You, Man, one of the finer bromances to come along in some time. Paul Rudd stars as the soon to be wed man who, it is revealed, doesn’t have all that many male friends. What follows is a quest for male bonding that involves fish tacos, billboard signs and the bass playing of Geddy Lee. But why hear me yak about it?
