AFI Top 10: 'Dragon Tattoo,' 'Bridesmaids' in; 'Extremely Loud' out

The American Film Institute has announced its annual list of the 10 best U.S. releases, which last year predicted nine of the eventual 10 Best Picture nominees. On the list this time are nine expected contenders: The Descendants, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Help, J. Edgar, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. But the AFI also included one very interesting dark horse: Bridesmaids. Missing from the top 10: Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Beginners, Drive, The Ides of March, and Young Adult. UPDATE: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was eligible but the AFI committee decided to give the entire Potter series a special award instead.  READ FULL STORY

'Bridesmaids' Blu-ray extras: Now with 1000% more inappropriateness!

Thanks to two extras from the new Bridesmaids Blu-ray, you’ll never look at party subs or children’s toys the same way again. First, Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and Air Marshall Jon (Ben Falcone) get frisky with a variety of Super Bowl-worthy snacks — and that’s only the beginning of their kinkfest… In the second clip, the ladies (and Jon Hamm!) show off their improv skills in a mash-up of off-the-wall outtakes led by an extended cut of the film’s cringe-worthy opening sex scene. See the VERY NSFW clips after the jump. READ FULL STORY

'Bridesmaids': Kristen Wiig and co-stars talk deleted scenes, ideas for the sequel

Even a two-hour-plus movie couldn’t contain all the comedy talent of these hilarious women. Now that Bridesmaids is out on DVD and Blu-ray, you finally get to see a ton of alternate takes and scenes you didn’t see in theaters. EW spoke to four of the Bridesmaids ladies — Kristen Wiig, Rose Byrne, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Ellie Kemper (sorry, not recent Emmy winner Melissa McCarthy) — about the stuff salvaged from the cutting room floor, and their ideas for a sequel!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The DVD has tons of extras and deleted scenes. What scenes are you most excited for fans to see for the first time?
KRISTEN WIIG:
Well, I love the date scene with the little boy [who spouts off outrageous statements]. That’s in the new director’s cut. And the scene with Paul Rudd — I really missed those date scenes. READ FULL STORY

'Bridesmaids': Kristen Wiig on her speedy writing process, and why Paul Rudd was cut from the film -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Even if you already caught Bridesmaids in theaters, you’ll want to check it out again at home. Why? Because unlike most comedies on DVD and Blu-ray that boast of hilarious special features, Bridesmaids actually delivers the goods. EW has an exclusive clip below from one of the behind-the-scenes features in which star Kristen Wiig, her writing partner Annie Mumolo, and producer Judd Apatow talking about the Bridesmaids writing process — including how quickly Wiig and Mumolo cranked out their first draft.

If you watch hard enough, you’ll even get a very quick peek of one of the best extras on the DVD and Blu-ray (out Sept. 20): A deleted scene between Kristen Wiig and Paul Rudd, in which they go on a blind date that starts off promisingly but then spirals out of control as Rudd turns out the be a short-fused rageaholic.

Summer box office hits record $4.4 billion, but...

movie_box_office

The 2011 domestic summer box office earned a record $4.4 billion in the period between May 6 and Labor Day, improving by one percent on the $4.33 billion earned last year. Theoretically, this should be seen as a major victory for Hollywood — of course, they’re celebrating it as such — but savvy box office junkies know better than to simply believe the hype. The box office is not quite as healthy as that figure might suggest.  READ FULL STORY

'Midnight in Paris' becomes Woody Allen's all-time biggest hit. How the heck did that happen?

It turns out that Owen Wilson, playing the last herringbone-jacketed screenwriter in Hollywood, wasn’t the only one who wanted to go back in time to meet the great expatriate writers and artists of the 1920s. This weekend, Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen’s time-machine-of-high-culchah trifle, crossed the line to become the filmmaker’s all-time biggest hit, surpassing the $40.1 million mark set 25 years ago by Hannah and Her Sisters. That movie made its money in two separate releases one year apart, so perhaps Allen’s real erstwhile biggest hit should be considered Manhattan. And, of course, if you factor in inflation, Midnight in Paris wouldn’t be number one by a long shot. That said, movie-land accountants don’t tend to do a lot of adjusting for inflation (they look at the raw numbers), and so the inescapable fact is that the top of Allen’s box-office track record will now look like this:

1. Midnight in Paris ($41.8 million, probably heading toward $50 million)

2. Hannah and Her Sisters ($40.1 million)

3. Manhattan ($39.9 million)

4. Annie Hall ($38.2 million)

Quick, can you say: “One of these things just doesn’t belong here?” READ FULL STORY

'Bridesmaids' duo Paul Feig and Judd Apatow to reunite for another comedy

Hot off the success of Bridesmaids, Universal is set to renew its vows with the team of Judd Apatow and Paul Feig. EW has confirmed that, as first reported by Deadline, the studio has bought a comedy pitch from the duo, whose partnership goes back to co-creating the cult TV series Freaks and Geeks. Feig, who directed Bridesmaids, will write and direct the new comedy, and Apatow will again produce. No plot details yet, aside from the fact that the film will be an unconventional love story. Nevertheless, if you’re a fan of Team Apatow-Feig, you’re free to begin getting excited right now.

Box office preview: 'X-Men: First Class' intends to lead the way

After last week’s record Memorial Day frame, the box office will simmer down a bit this weekend, as X-Men: First Class will be the only new major release. The last two X-Men movies, 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand and 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, performed well enough at the box office but earned lackluster notices from critics and audiences alike. First Class, a PG-13 prequel of the mutant series, is an attempt to earn back moviegoers’ trust, and reviews have been encouraging. Here are my box-office predictions for the top five: READ FULL STORY

'Bridesmaids': Could it be the Judd Apatow factory's all-time biggest hit?

Judd Apatow has directed only three movies, but his name — even more than, say, Steven Spielberg’s — is powerfully associated with a great many films that he shepherded but didn’t direct, like Superbad or Pineapple Express. There’s a good reason for that. The Judd Apatow school, or factory, or whatever you want to call it, doesn’t always produce great movies, but most of them are worthy, a good number of them are inspired, and his name, as a result, has come to symbolize something potent — and, to me, extraordinarily hopeful — in Hollywood. The name “Judd Apatow” doesn’t just mean movies that make you laugh, or that have a certain colorfully literate raunch factor. It means movies that are raunchy and smart and soulful at the same time — movies that dig into experience, that bring back the art of screenwriting, that are about real characters and real relationships, and that have made comedy (and, indeed, mainstream movies) safe for adults again.

Box office preview: 'The Hangover Part II' plans to party all Memorial Day weekend

The first Hangover opened at $45 million two years ago. The Hangover Part II, which tells (almost) exactly the same story (and jokes), only this time in Bangkok, could likely open with twice that amount, closer to $100 million, over the Memorial Day weekend. Despite iffy buzz and a controversy over a smoking chimp (was he trained to inhale or not?), the Todd Phillips comedy reuniting Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis will likely be No. 1 at the box office this weekend, which officially starts Thursday, as the Hangover and Kung Fu Panda sequels look to get a jump on holiday weekend moviegoing. Here are our predictions for what to expect for the five-day frame:  READ FULL STORY
