W-R-O-N-G.

That pretty much spells out Jason Bateman’s savagely sinister directorial debut, Bad Words, which features him as a man determined to destroy a national children’s spelling bee by exploiting a loophole that will allow him to compete against the little geniuses.

The film opens nationwide today, and Bateman talked to Entertainment Weekly about his decades-long desire to direct a movie, being very nasty to smarty-pants little kids, and the little boy who got it the worst. READ FULL STORY

What do you get when you cross chemical waste with beavers? The answer is the horror-comedy Zombeavers – and Hollywood’s latest viral phenomenon.

Box office report: 'The Lego Movie' beats 'About Last Night' with awesome $48 million

While The Lego Movie and About Last Night may have been neck-and-neck at the box office on Valentine’s Day, it was the former which ultimately won the weekend with awesome ease. In all, The Lego Movie constructed an estimated total of $48.81 million for the three-day period, making for a cumulative total of $129.11 million in its second week of release. About Last Night earned $13 million on Friday, just a smidge less than The Lego Movie, and received an A- cinemascore. But the Kevin Hart-starring romantic comedy could not compete with Lego once love began to disappear from the air, ultimately earning an impressive but not Lego impressive $27 million over the three-day frame.

'A Million Ways to Die in the West' red-band trailer: Is this Seth MacFarlane's 'Blazing Saddles'? -- VIDEO

Like Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles, Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West is a gleefully profane, proudly anachronistic Western spoof set in the mid to late 19th century that features an unlikely hero, a gorgeous blond love interest, at least one big campfire scene, cartoonish violence, jokes about sharpshooting, jokes about promiscuous frontier ladies, jokes about Native Americans who just might be Members of the Tribe (“Mila Kunis” is the new “Loz im geyn!”), and lots — I mean lots – of slapstick humor.

And unlike the classic 1974 comedy, A Million Ways probably won’t break any new ground — though it is pretty cool to see major talents like Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman, Liam Neeson, and, yes, MacFarlane himself united in the same goofy joke factory. (Another Brooksian touch: The Family Guy creator is the film’s director, co-writer, and star.) Though be forewarned: Given the graphic nature of a few scenes in the following restricted trailer, you might want to wait to watch until after you’ve eaten lunch.
