It turns out that 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' didn't need the Sinister Six to bring it down. All that was required was Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and a very funny marketing campaign. 'Neighbors' not only opened at number one at the box office, it derailed its super-powered competition so dramatically that it may be difficult for it to fully recover.
After nearly a month on top of the box office, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' got taken down by a bunch of funny ladies. 'The Other Woman' effortlessly took the top spot, sending Marvel's latest superhero adventure to the number two slot and making the other new releases of the week look bad.
When it was revealed that the sequel to 'Man of Steel' would actually be 'Batman vs. Superman', fans were both excited and concerned. To some, it sounded like the best thing ever. To others, it seemed like desperation after Superman's epic return didn't do 'The Dark Knight'-sized business. However, director Zack Snyder has officially gone on record explaining why the Caped Crusader will be in the film ... and it turns out that he's been thinking about this for awhile.
Whenever a big movie comes out, the stars make the press rounds, appear on talk shows and generally do everything in their power make sure you know the name of their film and the day it is hitting theaters. Although this often involves hearing the same canned answers time and time again, it sometimes means you get to see some of your favorite actors pop up in unexpected places. In this case, 'Neighbors' stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron teamed up with the cast of 'Workaholics,' delivering more of the hit Comedy Central show and giving them a chance to plug their upcoming movie.
This weekend saw a neck-and-neck race for the first spot at the box office, with the animated 'Rio 2' offering strong competition for last week's champion, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' When the dust, debris and feathers settled, the one starring the superhero took the first slot, but there is no shame in a second place that strong.
The idea of a movie about an evil mirror tormenting and killing people over the years may seem a little silly, but 'Oculus' makes it work. Set in two time frames, it tells the story of how the "Lasser Glass" destroyed one family and how the survivors reunite years later to exact their revenge. We have an exclusive look at the history of this (thankfully fictional) object, narrated by star Karen Gillan who rips off a monologue on all the mirror's devilish deeds.
Few genres are as ripe for parody as sports dramas, and the upcoming 'Intramural' looks like it'll fit the bill quite nicely. The trailer for the small sports comedy made its way online, and if the rest of the film is as weird and funny as these two-and-a-half minutes, it could be something to keep an eye on.
Call us suckers, but going by the new trailer for 'The Expendables 3,' we think this may be the one that finally gets it right. Both 'The Expendables' and 'The Expendables 2' were well-meaning but sloppy nostalgia exercises, but we're hoping that the third time is the charm and that this one will be a well-meaning and actually entertaining nostalgia exercise.
Most horror remakes tend to wait a few decades before starting over from square one, but it was announced today that 'The Grudge,' which hit theaters in 2004, is getting rebooted. To give you an idea of just how fresh this reboot really is, producer Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures, who were behind the first two American films, are behind the reboot.
If you watch Focus Features' 'The Signal' trailer hoping to find out exactly what the movie is about, you're probably in for a bit of a surprise. Although this is clearly a science-fiction thriller full of all kinds of creepy and gory alien imagery, the trailer puts tone first and foremost. And you know what? We're sold on the tone.
This weekend saw a brutal showdown between Liam Neeson, the current god of action cinema, and Jesus Christ, the current god of millions of human beings. Since the box office is a "two may enter, but only one may leave" type showdown, the victory ultimately went to Mr. Neeson and 'Non-Stop,' which edged out the son of God and his movie, uh, 'Son of God' to win the weekend.
Although 'Anchorman 2' wasn't groundbreaking at the box office even being a more moderately budgeted comedy, it did make significantly more than its beloved 2004 predecessor. So, could there be an 'Anchorman 3' somewhere down the line? As far as co-writer and director Adam McKay is concerned ... No. Never. Ever.
