Open Road Films will release its Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs" on August 16.
The sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" has hit a road block. The in-development follow-up to the hit 1994 comedy was in the works at New Line Cinema, but New Line's parent company, Warner Bros., has dropped the project, EW confirmed Tuesday. THR first reported the news.
In the rude, antic, and brazenly funny "Wedding Crashers" (2005), Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn played overgrown arrested-development cases who won us over from their very first whopping lie onward. At the time, the two actors were already in their mid-30s, but they were still able to mount a bad-boy generational assault against all things civil and decent. "The Internship" reunites Wilson, with his smarm-that-looks-like-sweetness (or is it the other way around?), and Vaughn, with his disaffected fast patter. The audience is still rooting for them ? only this time the two are playing the older, stodgy guys.
How's your year going? Probably not as well as the Rock's.
This fast and airy thriller about a team of four magicians is an engagingly preposterous high-wire act.
I've lost count, but "After Earth" seems like it must be the fourth post-apocalyptic thriller this month. The movie teams Will Smith and his son, Jaden Smith, and it was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, the former maestro-huckster of the twist ending. But Shyamalan's star has fallen, and he has become a glorified gun for hire. The movie takes off from a concept as basic as a videogame, and it sticks to that concept, without surprise.
Over the past few years, Zachary Quinto has established his acting rep by playing Sylar in "Heroes," a couple of memorable roles on "American Horror Story," and, of course, Spock in the last two "Star Trek" movies. So you could describe his transition into producing as, well, "logical." Certainly it has gotten off to an encouraging start. Quinto produced director J.C. Chandor's financial crisis movie Margin Call through the actor's Before the Door company ? the production outfit he runs with partners Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson ? and exec produced Chandor's Robert Redford-starring "All Is Lost," which just screened at Cannes.
Here's what the Memorial Day weekend taught us: America really likes the "Fast & Furious" franchise, but America loves movies.
This year's summer movie season is all about asking "What if?"
Drawing level with the "Star Wars" saga and pulling well ahead of "Shrek," "Ice Age" and "Spider-Man" in the sequel stakes, "The Fast and the Furious" could yet challenge Rocky Balboa, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger for longevity.
As the director of "Pirates of the Caribbean" Nos. 1, 2 and 3, filmmaker Gore Verbinski is intimately familiar with the massive needs of a potential summer blockbuster.
If only what happened in Vegas had stayed in Vegas.
When we think of the perfect summer blockbuster, we think of action -- and July's "The Wolverine" will have more than enough, star Hugh Jackman says.
Summer movie season is Seth Rogen's prime time.
The USS Enterprise picked up steam throughout the weekend, despite a somewhat unimpressive start.
"Star Trek Into Darkness" opens on a primitive planet, where the natives are restless and a volcano, in mid-eruption, traps First Officer Spock (Zachary Quinto) over a boiling ocean of lava.
If second place is the first loser, then this week that's a pretty great place to be.
"Great Gatsby" director Baz Luhrmann isn't the type to be cowed by literary pedigree, not even that of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
On paper, the 1974 version of "The Great Gatsby" had everything.
Ray Harryhausen, the stop-motion animation and special-effects master whose work influenced such directors as Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and George Lucas, has died, according to the Facebook page of the Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation.
Even Tony Stark would be impressed with "Iron Man 3's" incredible domestic opening weekend.
Sony Pictures has started development on the fourth movie in the "Men in Black" franchise, EW has confirmed. The Wrap first reported the news.
After only eight days of release, Iron Man 3 has already surpassed the $300 million mark at the international box office ? and the $200 million Disney/Marvel release is only getting started.
Tony Stark may have started out as a Batman knockoff -- like Bruce Wayne he's a playboy entrepreneur, a mega-rich industrialist who inherited the good life before channeling his anger into homeland security -- but there's no doubt that in the movies Robert Downey Jr. has put clear blue water between Tony and Christian Bale's grim, angst-y Batman.
J.J. Abrams won't say much about the next "Star Wars" film, which he is directing ? though info about casting and the story has piled up in bits and pieces.
In the final weekend before Iron Man 3 kicks off the summer movie season in earnest, Michael Bay's R-rated action comedy Pain & Gain topped a slow weekend at the box office with $20 million from 3,277 theaters, giving it an average of $6,103 per location. The Paramount film achieved only a fraction of the opening weekend grosses of Bay's Transformers films, but it only cost a fraction ? just $26 million ? of those films as well. It's well on its way to profitability.
The timing couldn't be any better, or worse, for Mira Nair's film of Mohsin Hamid's novel, a sympathetic portrait of a gifted, intelligent young Pakistani whose love affair with the American dream ends in disenchantment, mistrust and violence.
What was it Jane Fonda used to say? "No pain, no gain."
If this weekend's box office is any indication, the couch jumping stigma that has plagued Tom Cruise's career for the better part of the last decade may finally be thing of the past.
Remember when the movies held the impending extinction of human life on the planet as a worst-case scenario -- something that could and would be heroically averted, if only at the last second? Nowadays, the end times are only the beginning: an apocalyptic backdrop is something we're going to be seeing a lot of this year, so we might as well get used to it.
For the caveman family of "The Croods," the Stone Age isn't over yet.
Universal announced at its CinemaCon presentation today that it plans to produce a "Pitch Perfect" sequel that would hit theaters sometime in 2015.
Today, Major League Baseball will celebrate its annual Jackie Robinson Day, and all players and umpires will wear jerseys with the number 42, which Robinson, the first African-American player in the MLB, made famous. Don't be surprised if the execs at Warner Bros. join in on the fun. The studio did have a grand slam weekend, after all.
Plenty of French comedies have been adapted for the American audience ("Three Men and a Baby," "Dinner for Schmucks" and "The Birdcage" among others). But French-Canadian comedies? Not so much.
These days, there are many less flattering things you could say about a movie than that it's enjoyable in a square, uncomplicated, stirringly old-fashioned way.
Things are starting to move along for the remake of Kathryn Bigelow's "Point Break" that was first announced in September 2011.
The 2013 box office has been stuck in a bit of a rut.
In the years since its 1981 release, Sam Raimi's cabin-in-the-woods cheapie "The Evil Dead" has been elevated to the realm of myth. You won't find many films as near and dear to the hearts of horror nerds.
Logan is back.
The larger-than-life story of baseball great Jackie Robinson will open on the big screen this month along with the beginning of the new baseball season.
Lifetime will premiere an hour-long documentary that pays tribute to Cher's mom Georgia Holt on May 6.
Turns out putting Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson into the lead role is a good idea to keep a franchise going. G.I. Joe: Retaliation soldiered into the top spot over Easter weekend, piling up $41.2 million over three days and bringing the four-day cume to $51.7 million. Retaliation didn't quite set the record for Easter weekend ? those bragging rights belong to 2010?s Clash of the Titans ($61.2 million) ? and it didn't quite match the opening of G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra's $54.7 million bow in 2009. But Johnson and Channing Tatum's starpower helped keep the attrition from the poorly received Cobra to a minimum. Plus, the overseas figures are far out-pacing Cobra, bringing Retaliation to a healthy $132 million global total, roughly matching the $130-plus million budget for Paramount. Not surprisingly, the testosterone-heavy action pic attracted a 61 percent male crowd who gave it a strong "A--" CinemaScore.
Can lightning strike twice for filmmakers hoping to cash in on the popularity of Stephenie Meyer's teen fiction?
When Quentin Tarantino's western revenge-fantasy "Django Unchained" was first announced, casting rumors pegged Will Smith as the titular slave-turned-vigilante.
This weekend, The Croods proved that cave people have more pop culture appeal than just Geico commercials.
A film poet and provocateur probably more famous for his bombed-out appearances on David Letterman, Harmony Korine made a name for himself in 1995 with "Kids," Larry Clark's brutally unsentimental film about the teenage sex drive from a screenplay Korine had written when he was 18.
There have been so many shrill, dumb, rinky-dink romantic comedies that it's easy to feel downright grateful when a smart, non-cheesy one comes along.
After Rob Thomas launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance the Veronica Mars movie, the Internet went crazy. The $2 million goal was reached in less than a day, more incentives were added for new backers, and the fund continues to grow. EW's Jeff Jensen ? who also broke the news ? sat down with Thomas, the creator of the cult TV show, to discuss the movie, the implications of using Kickstarter and much more about the Mars universe. Here are 10 things we learned:
Let's be real for a second here. At this point, Lucasfilm is neither confirming nor denying that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford are returning for "Star Wars: Episode VII."
Shailene Woodley has been offered the role of Hazel Grace Lancaster in the adaptation of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars."
"Bikinis and big booties, y'all. That's what life is about," professes Alien, the be-grilled, white Camaro-driving rapper played by James Franco in Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" (in theaters Friday).
James Franco had a great weekend at the box office. Not only did his $215 million blockbuster "Oz The Great and Powerful" top the chart for a second time, his edgy indie "Spring Breakers" made a big splash in limited release.
In the "Incredible Burt Wonderstone," Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi play world-famous Las Vegas magicians.
Iron Man is coming to an arena near you. In a good way...even though bad guys do seem to love that whole arena/football stadium setting for announcing their plans for destruction and world domination. But either way, at least Iron Man will be there already!
The South by Soutwest festival announced juried honors in narrative and documentary feature, short film, design, and special categories at an awards ceremony held tonight at the Paramount Theater in Austin. The Audience Award winners from the fest will be announced Saturday.
Lance Armstrong's story has everything. Victory. Redemption. A triumph of the human spirit. All-American ambition shading into moral decay. The enticing possibility that Matthew McConaughey could play himself.
When HBO airs "Behind the Candelabra" on May 26, the world will get to see Matt Damon play Liberace's drug-addled, surgically enhanced lover -- a role about as far from Jason Bourne as it gets.
A country girl finding her feet in the big (Emerald) city, Dorothy Gale is one of the most enduring and endearing characters in movie history.
Despite "Skyfall" being the most commercially successful "James Bond" movie ever, director Sam Mendes won't be returning for Bond's next go-round.
He's played singers, sailors and serial killers, but there's one role that die-hard fans of Jeff Bridges can't get enough of: The stoner.
"Jack the Giant Slayer" (CinemaScore: B+) picked up significantly over the weekend, earning a $28 million opening on 3,525 screens.
Close your eyes and begin listing all of the various characters, dialogue, imagery, creatures, props, sets, and songs you can from "The Wizard of Oz."
You probably thought that, since the "Amazing Spider-Man" sequel started filming a couple weeks ago, we were probably done with Internet-imploding casting announcements.
There weren't many upsets at the 2013 Oscars ? more like a lot of sure-things, and a few very close races that could have gone one of three (or sometimes four) different ways.
One of the most surprising moments of this year's Oscars came at the very end, when first lady Michelle Obama showed up on video to help announce the best picture winner.
We asked CNN readers to vote for their favorite Oscar nominees in the weeks leading up to the 85th Academy Awards. As it turns out, you were pretty spot-on, predicting four of the six major categories correctly.
Ben Affleck may not have earned recognition from the Academy in the directing category, but his movie "Argo" walked away on Sunday with the best picture Oscar.
"Argo," praise yourself.
Leading up to Sunday's Oscars, EW.com will take a closer look at four categories that moviegoers may mistakenly think of as "technical." First up: Film Editing, with insights from Life of Pi's Tim Squyres, Silver Linings Playbook's Jay Cassidy and Crispin Struthers, and Zero Dark Thirty's Dylan Tichenor and William Goldenberg, the latter of whom also cut Argo, making him one of only a handful of editors in Oscar history to compete with himself.
Back in September, it was going to be "Silver Linings Playbook."
There's not much time before this Sunday's Academy Awards show, but if you still haven't caught up on all the best picture nominees we've got you covered.
Argo continued its domination of award season by claiming one of the last of the pre-Oscar prizes ? the Writers Guild Award, where screenwriter Chris Terrio won the honor for adapted screenplay.
Bruce Willis' return as John McClane, A Good Day to Die Hard, topped the box office over the Friday-to-Sunday period, but with a weaker-than-expected $25 million. Fox's $92 million thriller, which also stars Jai Courtney, earned $8.2 million on Thursday, its first day of release, and after four days, it's earned $33.2 million. That's a substantially weaker start than 2007?s Live Free or Die Hard, which started with $33.4 million in its opening three-day weekend.
"Beautiful Creatures" is arriving in a marketplace full of "Twilight" junkies still eager for their supernatural teen-romantic fix, and the film's concept couldn't be clearer: It's "Twilight" with the sexes reversed.
From the "Twilight" trilogy to the tearjerkers adapted from Nicholas Sparks novels to nearly every film where Matthew McConaughey takes off his shirt, let's face it: Most cinematic love stories are made for women.
Not your typical Valentine's Day release, "Die Hard"'s fifth is Hollywood's counterpunch to chocolates, roses and romance. It's an anti-date movie. Well, unless your date is also your dad.
Identity Thief (CinemaScore: B) fared even better than expected, bringing in $36.6 million over the weekend across 3,141 theaters. For comparison, Melissa McCarthy's last major film Bridesmaids (though it was in a supporting role) opened at $26.2 million, in 2,918 theaters. With an opening like this, big things are surely expected from Seth Gordon's R-rated comedy which has already surpassed its $35 million production budget. Though Bateman and Gordon had a successful run with Horrible Bosses after a $28.3 million opening weekend in July 2011, Bateman hasn't had this kind of luck with most of his starring roles. Universal's The Change-Up (with Ryan Reynolds) opened at $13.5 million in August 2011 and went on to gross only $37.1 million domestically, on a $52 million production budget.
It's been a good month for Quvenzhané Wallis!
Melissa McCarthy didn't quite come out of nowhere.
Chris Pratt's career is about to soar out of this world ? or, more accurately, out of this galaxy.
Young women drove Summit's zombie-themed romantic comedy "Warm Bodies" to the top spot at the box office over Super Bowl weekend, while Sylvester Stallone's Bullet to the Head got tackled, leaving the action icon with the worst debut of his career.
In "Stand Up Guys," Al Pacino and Christopher Walken play second-rate Baltimore gangsters in their late 60s who make no bones about what grumpy old sociopaths they've become.
Just about every year, brilliant movies are utterly ignored by the Oscars. "The Searchers," "Groundhog Day," "Breathless," "King Kong," "Casino Royale," "Touch of Evil," "Caddyshack," "Mean Streets," "The Big Lebowski" ? the Academy has a long history of overlooking comedies, action movies, horror flicks, hard-boiled genre pics, artsy foreign films, and documentaries that aren't about World War II. This year, we'll be taking a closer look at films that were too small, too weird, or perhaps simply too awesome for the Academy Awards. These are the Non-Nominees.
