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.
Box office update: 'Lego' and 'About Last Night' freeze out the competition with $13 million each on Friday
The Lego Movie built a second floor to its box office success yesterday, earning $13.03 million and just beating out the Kevin Hart-starring About Last Night, a remake of the Rob Lowe- and Demi Moore-topped 1986 comedy.
So would I — but, alas, we never will. In the mid-’70s, Hollywood studios declined to finance just such a project after Jodorowsky spent a couple of years prepping the movie with a band of hugely gifted artists including future Alien creators H.R. Giger and Dan O’Bannon. (In fairness to the studio execs, they may have been justifiably reluctant to invest in a project which Jodorowsky himself believed might be as many as 20 hours long).
Veronica Mars is back, marshmallows! And she’s quippier than ever.
In this exclusive clip from Rob Thomas’s highly anticipated Mars movie, Veronica (Kristen Bell) trades barbs with dad Keith (Enrico Colantoni) over which profession is worse — lawyer or private detective — before Wallace (Percy Daggs III) and Mac (Tina Majorino) show up with a surprise for Veronica.

The official trailer for Under The Skin starring Scarlett Johansson has been released, offering audiences a glimpse of the actress as a brunette (really!) with a Scottish accent in writer-director Jonathan Glazer’s newest sci-fi offering.
Under The Skin –an adaptation of the Michael Farber novel of the same name – features Johansson as a human-eating alien in bombshell disguise who preys on the unwitting men of Scotland. And in the spooky full-length trailer, Johansson’s sex appeal is on full-display as she slinks in and out of water in a black bra and panty set, delivering lines like “Come to me,” while in another scene the 29-year-old coos “When was the last time you touched someone?”
Singer/actress Idina Menzel will perform “Let it Go” from the Disney smash hit Frozen during the Oscars, ABC announced Tuesday, leaving no doubt that the film’s best-selling soundtrack has earned its place in pop culture history.
The animated fairy tale Frozen is up for two Oscar nominations. “Let it Go,” the flick’s theme song, is a nominee in the Best Original Song Category alongside “Happy” (from Despicable Me 2), “Ordinary Love” (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) and “The Moon Song” (Her). READ FULL STORY
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.
The killer mermaid genre is not quite as slender as you might imagine (and we’re not even counting the controversial alternative ending to Splash in which a bloodlust-crazed Daryl Hannah beheads Tom Hanks with her tail). But it certainly isn’t large enough for us to ignore the appearance of a clip for Epic Pictures’ new horror film Nymph, about two young women who go on a Mediterranean vacation and uncover the watery lair of a killer mermaid beneath an abandoned military fortress.
A killer mermaid? A watery lair? Other things? What’s not to love!
