'EuroTrip' 10th Anniversary: Cast reveals 10 things you might not know about the movie

'EuroTrip' 10th Anniversary: Cast reveals 10 things you might not know about the movie
It has been ten years since EuroTrip, riding the raunchy teen comedy revival of the late ’90s and early naughts, burst into theaters and exposed an entire generation of teens to a beach full of dangling male genitalia. And even a decade later, those involved with the cult classic are still proud of it — every sex organ included.

At least, that was the vibe taken away from the audience Wednesday night in Hollywood, where cast members Scott Mechlowicz (“Scotty”), Jacob Pitts (“Cooper”), Michelle Trachtenberg (“Jenny”), Travis Wester (“Jamie”) joined producers Jeff Schaffer, Alec Berg, and David Mandel and several others for a Q&A session.

The Dark Knight Rises fends off Danny Boyle's 2012 Olympics ceremony

Not even the draw of Boyle's opening ceremony could stop The Dark Knight Rises from becoming this year's fastest growing film

Back in early 2009, Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire created a challenge for rival awards-hopefuls such as Frost/Nixon and Milk by sucking all the air out of the market. Two years later, Boyle's 127 Hours might have done a bit better had it not faced stiff competition from fellow Oscar contenders The King's Speech and Black Swan. Now Boyle is once again in the competitive mix, with his highly praised Olympics opening ceremony drawing 23m viewers on Friday night on BBC1, and a peak of 27m.

Cinema grosses were affected, although variations between films were significant. Family films, which don't attract many viewers in the late-evening slot occupied by the opening ceremony, saw fairly even distribution of box office across the three days of the weekend, with Friday benefiting from being a school holiday.

What to Watch This Week: Cinema Releases for July 27th

It’s Friday, so you know what that means – another round-up of what films are hitting cinemas this weekend. With The Dark Knight Rises dominating the UK box office last week it seems no-one wants to put up a challenge to Christopher Nolan’s dark hero as only The Lorax is on a wide release this week. Just in time for the start of the summer holidays!

Nationwide Releases The Lorax

Dr. Seuss’ classic, environmentally themed children’s book comes to the big screen in this tale of a young boy who encounters a cantankerous forest creature after venturing outside of his artificial city in search of a tree. Ted (voice of Zac Efron) lives in a town where nothing is quite as it appears; everything is plastic, including the plants. Hopelessly smitten by the beautiful Audrey (voice of Taylor Swift), who dreams of one day seeing a real tree,

Want To Meet The Man Who Wears the Nicolas Cage Costume?

Between his wild-eyed antics onscreen and his even zanier personal life off, Nicolas Cage has been a source of infinite jest for his three-decade career, but what drives the man in all his eccentric pursuits?

Turns out it's a friendly puppeteer by the name of Glen Soziak, who's been wearing the "Nicolas Cage costume" all this time, at least according to semi-reliable The Onion News Network.

This hilarious faux news magazine interview with Soziak in conjunction with his book "Life Inside the Cage" is so crazy we almost expect to see Cage inside the Soziak costume.

The man talks about what drove him to create such a wacky character and what drives him to keep pushing the envelope more and more with every performance or weird purchase. Check out the video below and get a load of him doing a pretty spot-on Cage voice.

Ghost Rider Flames Out at the President’s Day Weekend Box Office

When a Ghost Rider sequel was announced, most people wondered why. Moviegoers must have been asking the same question judging by the film's middling box office receipts this weekend. Poor Nic Cage might have to sell his soul to Satan to get another hit movie at this point.

The good news for the producers of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is that their sequel/semi-reboot only cost about half of the 2007 original’s $110 million budget. The bad news is it opened in 3rd place to less than half what its predecessor took in its opening weekend. $22 million for 3 days, and that’s even factoring in inflated 3D ticket prices. Compare that to the $47 million the original pulled in, and you get what Box Office Mojo describes as “a nearly unprecedented drop for a sequel.”

Then again, by all reported accounts, the only reason this Ghost Rider sequel even came into
