Box office report: 'Neighbors' evicts 'Spider-Man 2' from top spot

SUNDAY UPDATE: Neighbors is No. 1 movie at the weekend box office with an estimated $51.1 million.

ORIGINAL POST: As kryptonite is to Superman, so a kegger is to Spider-Man. That seems to be the lesson of this weekend’s box office, anyway.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s new frat comedy Neighbors drank in an estimated $19.6 million at the box office on Friday, almost twice as much as the $10.1m which was caught in the web of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sony is projecting its superhero sequel will gross $37 million for the weekend, which would give it a cumulative domestic take of $147m by the end of Sunday.

Meanwhile, The Other Woman continued to show legs in its third week of release, earning $2.8 million for a total gross of $55.2 million.

Hear Lea Michele, Megan Hilty, and more in the 'Legends of Oz' soundtrack -- EXCLUSIVE

DOROTHY-OZ-01

The worlds of Smash and Glee collide — finally! — in Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, a new, 3D animated feature coming to theaters this month.

The film stars Broadway vet Rachel Berry Lea Michele as its title character, who travels from Kansas back to the land of Oz for another adventure. This time around, she’s joined not only by her old pals the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion — played by the august comic trio of Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, and Jim Belushi — but also by a marshmallow man named (wait for it) Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), a kindly owl called Wiser (Oliver Platt), and, perhaps most excitingly, a delicate china doll played by ex-Smash star Megan Hilty. The whole gang must band together to fight a new foe: the wicked Jester, voiced by beloved actor/comedian Martin Short.

With all that vocal talent in play, it’s only natural that Legends of Oz would be a musical — and we’ve got an exclusive first listen at the film’s eight original songs, plus five instrumental tracks. Click your heels together,  and click “play” below:

Kevin Smith talks 'Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Despite its seemingly kiddie-friendly name, the new film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie is not suitable for children — unless they’re very young. “You can sit down with a child that doesn’t perceive vulgarity and that child will totally delight in it, because it’s colorful to look at,” says director and prolific podcaster Kevin Smith, who wrote the film. “But if that child understands content at all, you’re going to have a lot of explaining to do.”

See Johnny Depp in new doc about artist Ralph Steadman -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The framing device of the new, 15-years-in-the-making documentary For No Good Reason finds Johnny Depp  paying a visit to the film’s subject, British artist Ralph Steadman, at his home in Britain. Director Charlie Paul admits getting that footage proved a little tricky given that Steadman was initially none to keen on participating in the project at all, and Johnny Depp is, well, Johnny Depp.

'Peanuts' 3D movie debuts first teaser trailer -- VIDEO

If you’re anything like me, hearing the classic piano strains of the Peanuts theme is enough to send you deep into nostalgia — and the new trailer for Charles Schulz’s animated classic is designed to do just that.

Fans have been anticipating this upcoming feature — from 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, and helmed by Steve Martino (Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears A Who) — for years. And though it might be jarring to see computer-generated versions of Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, and Snoopy, hardcore Schulzites shouldn’t worry: Producer Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids) promises USA Today that the comic’s beloved characters will come to the big screen with their personalities intact.

“Snoopy will not be rapping, no one will be twerking,” he vows. “We’re in good hands.”

Box office report: 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' beats 'Need for Speed' to finish line with $21.2 million; Tyler Perry flops

Mr-Peabody-and-Sherman.jpg

It was not a good weekend to be a new movie in wide release at the box office. The world’s smartest animated dog took the lead  this weekend and left Need for Speed in the dust, while Tyler Perry’s The Single Mom’s Club missed the mark and now has the dubious honor of being his lowest opening ever.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman came out on top in its second weekend in theaters with $21.2 million from 3,951 locations. The $145 million DreamWorks Animation pic dropped 34.2 percent from last week’s opening, putting its domestic total at $63.2 million. The real test will be how it stands up to Muppets Most Wanted next weekend — its first real new competition. That could be an indicator of its longterm theatrical legs.

Watch the latest 'The Boxtrolls' trailer here! -- VIDEO

Boxtrolls.jpg

Put together a community of adorably weird underground creatures and a human who needs a family and you get The Boxtrolls, an animated film made by the creators of previous hits like ParaNorman and Coraline.

A new teaser trailer for The Boxtrolls is here and it gives us a look at the adorable quirkiness of the Boxtrolls, doing things like eating bugs and running into poles. This trailer forgoes dialogue in favor of a rendition of “(You’re So Square) Baby I Don’t Care,” a song made famous by Elvis Presley and incredibly appropriate for the box-housed trolls.

The Boxtrolls features the voices of stars like Toni Collette, Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Tracy Morgan, and Simon Pegg, and hits theaters September 26. Check out the trailer below: READ FULL STORY

'Frozen' hits $1 billion mark at worldwide box office

Last night, Frozen snagged two Oscars: One for best original song for “Let It Go,” and the other for best animated feature. Oh, and it also crossed the $1 billion mark for worldwide box office.

Six other Walt Disney Studios films have also hit the $1 billion mark, including The Avengers and Toy Story 3. So far, Frozen has earned an estimated $388.8 million domestically and $611.5 million internationally since its November 27, 2013 domestic release — and it still has one more international territory to go, debuting in Japan March 14.

“With Frozen, we knew we had something truly special on our hands, and it has connected with fans and filmgoers around the world in a way we only dreamed was possible,” said Alan Horn, chairman at Walt Disney Studios, in a statement.

The animated film is still in theaters and will come out on DVD March 18.

If you’ve seen Frozen, you’ve seen the cutting-edge/old-fashioned Mickey Mouse short Get a Horse! (And given Frozen’s box office at this point, we’re guessing that means everybody.)

But even if you’ve already watched the nuvo-retro Mickey movie, which combines an old-school 1930s hand-drawn style with state-of-the-art digital animation and 3-D effects, you probably haven’t seen everything the Oscar-nominated short has to offer.

EW has an exclusive clip of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film – when things go from flat to flat-out crazy. Director Lauren MacMullan walked us through all the little details, hidden and otherwise.

So here they are, the video and secrets of Get a Horse! READ FULL STORY
