Ah, the continuing appeal of the one and only Denzel Washington. How much do people love this guy? They love him so much that they'll transform just about any movie he appears in into a respectable hit, even if that movie is a poorly marketed (but well-reviewed) action movie based on a comic book that no one read. We shouldn't be surprised that '2 Guns' shot to the top of the box office, but we are a little. Oh, Denzel Washington, you always catch us off guard.
We were already excited to see 'American Hustle' because it's the latest film from the always-interesting David O. Russell and because it has one of the strongest ensembles in recent memory. But now, with the release of two new images, we're really excited to see it because it apparently pulls no punches when it comes to completely '80s-ifying stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper. They look ludicrous...and also kind of awesome.
Dennis Farina, the hugely recognizable veteran of film and television, has passed away at the age of 69. Over the course of his 32-year career, Farina specialized in playing cops and other authority figures, utilizing his background in law enforcement to springboard into acting.
There was a lot of buzz surrounding James Wan's 'The Conjuring' going into this weekend. "Scariest movie of the year." "Best horror movie in a long time." And so on. But it paid off. 'The Conjuring' not only won the box office, it won the box office in a way that R-rated horror movies often don't. Between this and 'The Purge,' R-rated horror is officially back in a big way.
After years of sharing the same block on Fox Sunday nights, 'The Simpsons' and 'Family Guy' are finally doing something that no one ever expected: they're crossing over. To be more specific, an upcoming episode of 'Family Guy' will see Peter Griffin and his family stumble into the town of Springfield, where they encounter the Simpson family.
What do you get when Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline journey to Las Vegas in a movie? If this were a few decades ago, they'd probably all double cross and kill each other. But today? They get to play old buddies having one last hurrah in a similar fashion to 'The Hangover.' Because the only thing funner than old, drunk people are old, drunk movie stars. Or at least that's what everyone involved with 'Last Vegas' thinks.
Comic-Con 2013 may be in full swing, but that doesn't mean those of us stuck at home are completely left out. Although 'Kick-Ass 2' will be showing off all kinds of new footage for the folks in Hall H this week, we get to check out a new TV spot for Jeff Wadlow's upcoming sequel. Sure, it's not the same, but it'll do for now.
The 2013 Emmy nominations have arrived and at first glance, it's more of the same. Of course 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'Homeland' and 'Downton Abbey' seem to be dominating the drama category! Of course '30 Rock,' 'Louie' and 'Veep' are contenders in the comedy category! However, the big surprise with this year's nominations is that one of the most nominated shows wasn't even on TV at all.
Although the 'Jackass' brand seems to have officially run its course after a TV series and three (very successful) movies, the name will live on in a new spinoff movie titled 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.' Awkward title aside, it sounds like it'll feature everything about the series that has entranced and disgusted so many people. Namely, grown adults doing terrible things to themselves and others in public places.
After years of pumping out amazingly awful, bargain bin TV movies, SyFy finally hit the big time with 'Sharknado.' For the first time, one of the network's movies was so silly, so dumb and so instantly meme-able that the world-at-large took notice and made it a thing. People were actually talking about 'Sharknado'! Real people! So it's no surprise that SyFy has announced a sequel. After all, they probably have a spare $137 lying around to fund it.
What's more powerful than a bunch of giant robots and giant monsters? What's more powerful than Adam Sandler and all his buddies? This weekend gave us a definitive answer: a lovable supervillain voiced by Steve Carell. 'Despicable Me 2' triumphed at the box office for the second week in a row, beating out newcomers like 'Grown Ups 2' and 'Pacific Rim' and making it look easy.
Which would you expect to win the Fourth of July weekend: the Disney-produced, Johnny Depp-starring revival of an iconic American hero or the sequel to a French-made, Steve Carell-starring animated movie about a lovable supervillain? Well, it looks like American audiences simply aren't interested in westerns, even the uber-expensive ones starring Captain Jack Sparrow with a bird on his head. 'Despicable Me 2' destroyed 'The Lone Ranger' over the holiday weekend. Like, totally wrecked it. Mercilessly.
