New 'Dumb and Dumber To' posters spoof 'Lucy'

If most people only use 10 percent of their brains, then Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne must use a maximum of 1 percent. At least, that’s the idea behind the newest posters for Dumb and Dumber To.

Dumb and Dumber To stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels took to Twitter to reveal two new posters for the film, which showcase a marketing campaign that might look familiar. The tagline reads, “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what he could do with 1%.”

If the guys’ colorful eyes didn’t tip you off, you’ll probably recognize that line from this summer’s Lucy: The tagline for the Scarlett Johansson film read, “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what she could do with 100%.”

Check out the posters below:

paddington-01

When EW visited the London shoot of Paddington last year, everyone seemed thrilled that King’s Speech Oscar winner Colin Firth was voicing the film’s titular, marmalade-loving bear. “What we liked about Colin is that he’s got a bearish voice, he’s got a sense of humor, and he presents the very best of British,” explained producer David Heyman (of Gravity and the Harry Potter series). “We wanted that.”

Box office report: 'Apes' conquers, 'Boyhood' starts strong

If this weekend’s number one movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes — the second entry in the rebooted Apes franchise — has a spiritual sibling in the original series of films, it is 1972’s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. While Conquest was the fourth movie in the franchise to arrive in cinemas it is, like Dawn, the second according to the interior timeline of its series and, again like director Matt Reeves’ new film, features an apocalyptic showdown between apes and humans. Thus, it seems appropriate that this weekend Dawn of the Planet of the Apes comprehensively conquered the domestic box office by earning an estimated $73 million, exceeding both expectations and the $54.8 million opening weekend of its predecessor, 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

James Franco has found the man to play actor Greg Sestero in his forthcoming adaptation of Sestero‘s 2013 book The Disaster Artist, which details the author’s involvement in the cult film The Room. Not that Franco had to look very far: According to 3 News, Franco’s brother Dave attended a Los Angeles screening of The Room over the weekend and, during a Q&A with the film’s mercurial writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau, asked him, “How do you feel about me playing Greg Sestero in the movie?” Wiseau responded by declaring, “That’s what I say: It’s a good choice.” James Franco seemed to confirm the casting news when he tweeted a photograph of Wiseau with his brother, which you can see above.
