After all of the excitement that came with its announcement, things have gotten very quiet on the 'Star Wars Episode 7' front. However, pages from a mysterious 'Star Wars' project titled 'Star Wars: Reclamation' have appeared online, suggesting that Disney may have more in the works than we know about.
Well, it looks like we have an answer to the question of whether or not audiences are interested in a historical, racially charged baseball movie. Brian Helgeland's '42' opened at the top of the box office this weekend, instantly breaking the record for biggest opening for a baseball movie. Sure, it's a minor record to break, but a record is a record.
Last night's SNL saw saw Vince Vaughn hosting for the second time...although it's been fifteen years since he last graced this particular state. For his opening monologue, the 'Swingers' and 'Wedding Crashers' star didn't do anything traditional, opting to do what he does best: riff. And with no Owen Wilson around, Vaughn turned to the audience to be his comedic sparring partner.
SNL hasn't been too political in recent months, but last night's cold open saw the show jump right back into current events, taking on all of the recent movement on gun control laws...or lack thereof. In true SNL fashions, both sides of the debate come out looking pretty moronic.
Legendary film critic Roger Eberthas passed away at the age of 70, leaving a massive void in the world of film analysis and criticism that is unlikely to be filled anytime soon. His impact on his field and how people watch and talk about movies cannot be underestimated. However, there's a reason he was the most influential and widely read critics of all time: he was a damn great writer.
A few weeks ago, director Peter Jackson held an online Q&A and preview for the upcoming 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.' However, if you wanted to watch or take part, you had to have bought 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' on DVD or Blu-ray and followed the proper instructions (you know, typing in codes and such). Although the entire event remains an exclusive, Jackson has posted a six minute excerpt to YouTube, letting everyone get a taste of the what it was like and get a glimpse of the new Middle Earth adventure.
It's the kind of thing that sounds like an April Fool's Day prank, but for 'Star Wars' fans it will be an exploration of one of the greatest "What if?" scenarios of all time. Dark Horse Comics has announced that it is adapting George Lucas' original 'Star Wars' treatment into a comic miniseries. Sure, 'Star Wars' comics are nothing new, but Lucas' original ideas were so radically and wildly different than the finished films that this should prove fascinating and utterly unique.
Like any holiday that sees families congregating together and then desperately seeking activities where they don't have to talk to each other for two hours, this Easter weekend saw a strong bump at the box office thanks to a few new contenders and a handful of holdovers with some surprising staying power.
You can't imagine two films more different than 'The Croods' and 'Olympus Has Fallen,' but right now the two of them sit on top of the box office chart, both temporarily linked by the fact that a bunch of people apparently wanted to see them this weekend. It's the first time in forever that two films have opened to over $30 million at the same time...but it wasn't golden for all of the new releases.
