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.

'The Room' star Greg Sestero says James Franco 'ideal guy' to adapt memoir

Can the making of a bad film make for a good one? That is the question raised by the news — reported by Deadline — that James Franco is to direct an adaptation of The Disaster Artist, actor Greg Sestero’s memoir about his time spent starring in the so-bad-it’s-awesome cult movie The Room.

'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. And the language is obscene enough to make Mel himself proud. Hosti gezen in dayne lebn?

Oscars 2014: 'Nebraska' screenwriter says his nomination is like an 'Onion' headline

Screenwriter Bob Nelson is having a good day. “I got an email from Sears saying I got $5 in points,” he explains. “So that was pretty good.” Anything else happen? “Oh yeah, the Academy Award thing,” he deadpans.

Oscars 2014: 'Nebraska' actress June Squibb talks nomination -- 'We hugged and kissed and cried'

If there is a more touching Oscar nominations day story than that of veteran thespian June Squibb — who has been given the nod in the Best Supporting Actress category for her performance in Nebraska — we’re not sure our hearts, or our tear ducts, can take it.

Oscars 2014: 'Nebraska' star Bruce Dern on his Best Actor nomination

The way Bruce Dern tells it, the moment he learned he had been nominated in the Best Actor category for his performance in Nebraska sounds remarkably like a scene from the film itself, which stars Dern as a befuddled alcoholic named Woody who mistakenly believes he has won a fortune. “I have to sleep with a mask on sometimes,” says the actor, who was previously nominated 35 years ago in the Best Supporting Actor category for the drama Coming Home. “So, the Lone Ranger mask was still on. I was stumbling down the hall to go to the latrine. And when I got there, somebody said, ‘No, don’t go in there! Come out here, come out here!’ And there was Laura (Dern, his daughter), and my wife, and my business partner Wendy and I was absolutely thrilled. And a little bit stunned to tell you the truth.”

Check out the new, bloody poster for black comedy 'Cheap Thrills' -- EXCLUSIVE

CHEAP-THRILLS.jpg

It’s early days, but Cheap Thrills could well turn out to be 2014’s blackest black-comedy. The directorial debut of E.L. Katz stars David Koechner (Anchorman) and Sara Paxton (The Innkeepers) as a pair of well-heeled L.A.-dwellers who goad two desperate-for-cash characters — played by Pat Healy and Ethan Embry — to commit increasingly unwise and/or illegal acts for growing sums of cash. We hesitate to say more, but the film’s new poster, which you can see exclusively above, gives some idea of the macabre mayhem which results.

'Hung' star Jane Adams talks about her new comedy-drama, 'All the Light in the Sky'

All-the-Light-in-the-Sky.jpg

Is the new independent comedy-drama All the Light in the Sky about a Malibu-dwelling, 45-year-old actress called Marie and her dealings with the film industry? Or is it about why we need to accept, and engage with, change — be it personal or global? Actually, this latest film from prolific writer-director Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies) is technically both. However, star Jane Adams, who cowrote All the Light in the Sky with Swanberg, insists the movie is much more a philosophical rumination rather than a Tinseltown dissection.
