Box office report: 'Puss in Boots' walks all over 'In Time' and 'The Rum Diary' with $34 million debut

The box office had to contend with the World Series, a very early snowstorm in the Northeast, and Halloween festivities across the country this weekend, but audiences still managed to make it to the movies! That being said, grosses for new releases Puss in Boots, In Time, and The Rum Diary, weren’t all that strong. Check out how they performed below: READ FULL STORY

Box office preview: 'Puss in Boots' will claw its way to the top

There are three movies opening in wide release this weekend, but all I really want to do is talk about the one with the cat: Puss in Boots.

Why? First, because cats are awesome, and second, because they have consistently been overlooked by a Hollywood system that favors Corgis (like the cute one on our cover), Chihuahuas, and a myriad of dogs that — according to a theory I don’t comprehend — are so ugly they’re adorable. But not anymore! Viva el gato! Oh, and here are my box-office predictions for the top five: READ FULL STORY

Justin Timberlake will play music producer Neil Bogart in 'Spinning Gold'

Justin Timberlake has been cast in the Neil Bogart biopic Spinning Gold, EW has confirmed, playing the self-made music producer, whose Casablanca Records was responsible for launching the careers of 1970s icons including KISS, Donna Summer, The Village People, and Parliament. (Deadline first reported the story.)

The film also marks Timberlake’s debut as a feature producer in association with Boardwalk Entertainment Group, which Bogart’s sons co-founded. “From the moment we met Justin, we knew we’d found our Neil Bogart,” said Tim Bogart, who also wrote the screenplay, in a release. “With Justin also a producer on the movie, together we’re crafting this saga about a young dreamer who started with nothing and came of age in the ’60s and ’70s, believing anything was possible and every risk was worth taking.”

Check out Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in 'Friends With Benefits' blooper reel -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Friends With Benefits turned out to be one of summer’s better-reviewed R-rated comedies — and there were quite a few of them this year. Now EW can exclusively reveal that the film, which stars the (ahem, frequently naked) Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis as two friends attempting to have emotionless sex, will hit stores Dec. 2 on Blu-ray, DVD, and a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. And once you’ve had enough of watching Kunis and Timberlake disrobe in HD, check out the special features including a commentary with the two actors and director Will Gluck (Easy A), deleted scenes, on-set featurettes, and a montage of outtakes.

EW got its hands on an exclusive clip from the movie’s blooper reel. Check it out — and costar Patricia Clarkson’s Sisyphean spelling struggle — below: READ FULL STORY

Justin Timberlake talks about having Olivia Wilde play his mother in sci-fi movie 'In Time'

The sci-fi thriller In Time (in theaters Oct. 28) envisions a futuristic society in which humans are genetically engineered to stop aging at 25 and can theoretically live forever. As a result, the film sports what many Hollywood executives would consider a dream cast — one in which every character, no matter his or her actual age, is played by a gorgeous young actor or actress. The movie’s conceit also presented some peculiar challenges for the cast. For instance, Justin Timberlake, 30, who plays a murder suspect named Will, had to imagine the 27-year-old Olivia Wilde as his character’s 50-year-old mother, Rachel. READ FULL STORY

'In Time' trailer: Featuring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, and a cast of immortal hotties

For anyone who still believes that science-fiction cinema can be more than just a giant-alien-robot delivery system, the trailer for In Time will be a breath of fresh air. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, the film looks a little bit like a spiritual sequel to Niccol’s own Gattaca. Justin Timberlake plays a working-class  joe in a utopian future where no one ever has to age past 25. Functionally, this has two effects: 1) Everyone’s mom is totally hot, and 2) the new global currency is years of life. This means that poor people die young and rich people live forever, just like in real life, maaaaannn! Check out the trailer: READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Captain America' stands proud with $65.8 million; 'Harry Potter' plummets, still huge

This weekend, Captain America: The First Avenger was on a quest to avenge the disappointing box office results of recent superhero movies like X-Men: First Class and Green Lantern, and according to weekend estimates, it looks like Cappy has succeeded! The patriotic Paramount/Marvel tentpole earned a strong $65.8 million this weekend, bettering the opening of Thor, which hammered out $65.7 million during its debut in May. (Let’s wait for final numbers on Monday before we declare this the best superhero opening of the summer.) Captain America wasn’t a weakling in the per theater average department, either, as it found a terrific $17,719 at each of its 3,715 locations. Only 40 percent of the opening figure came from 3D screens, though—yet another low number for the format.

Audiences, which were 64 percent male, liked the film quite a bit, issuing Captain a nice “A-” Cinemascore grade (comparatively, Thor and X-Men: First Class both earned a “B+”, while Green Lantern earned a “B”), and the positive reception should help the $140 million action film stick around at the box office.

Box office update: 'Captain America' soars into first place with $25.7 million on Friday

Captain America: The First Avenger is starting off stronger than anyone (self-included) expected. According to estimates, the patriotic Marvel superhero film grossed a tremendous $25.7 million on Friday, with $4 million of that coming from midnight screenings. Captain America‘s impressive Friday gross puts it well ahead of the first-day totals for X-Men: First Class ($21.4 million) and Green Lantern ($21.4 million), and just a touch above Thor‘s first Friday ($25.5 million) as well. Thus, Cappy should earn a figure in the same range as Thor‘s opening, grossing around $66 million this weekend.

In second place, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—Part 2 plummeted 84% from last weekend’s record-breaking Friday to $14.6 million. Given the up-front excitement and huge numbers for Harry Potter last weekend, this drop doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Still, the magical fantasy should stabilize some over the rest of the weekend and finish with about $49 million by Sunday.

Friends With Benefits nabbed the third place spot with a solid $6.8 million. The Mila Kunis/Justin Timberlake comedy earned about 6 percent less than the $7.2 million that No Strings Attached made on its first Friday in January. Sunday grosses are typically stronger in the summer since kids are out of school and people are on vacation, so I wouldn’t be totally surprised if Benefits edged out Strings by the end of the frame, but right now, Friends With Benefits looks to be headed to a $19 million weekend.

Horrible Bosses continued to exhibit some strong legs at the box office, declining just 33 percent from last Friday to $3.7 million. The revenge comedy should pick up another $12 million this weekend, good for fourth place. In fifth will be Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which earned $3.5 million on Friday and will likely find just over $11 million.

Box office preview: 'Captain America' aims to shoot down 'Harry Potter' this weekend

I wouldn’t want to be the superhero that has to go up against Harry Potter — not even Voldemort could handle that kid — but Captain America: The First Avenger will do his very best to take down the wizard at the box office this weekend, and it should be a very close race. Given its huge opening last weekend, Potter is guaranteed a major drop this time around, but it still has a solid shot at number one. Captain America, meanwhile, is battling a trend of diminishing returns that have plagued superhero movies this summer. Also opening is the raunchy rom-com Friends With Benefits, which hopes to continue the recent hot streak R-rated comedies have enjoyed. Who will succeed and who will fail? Take a look at my box office predictions below.  READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con 2011: Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and the mystery of 'In Time'

Before today, Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried were Comic-Con virgins. But now, after packing “protection,” according to Timberlake, they are experiencing the convention center for the first time to promote their upcoming film, In Time. You may remember the thriller, which is set in a futuristic society in which people pay to be kept alive after the aging gene is extinguished, having a different title, I’m.mortal. (Director Andrew Niccol told us the title changed to avoid confusion with Relativity’s Immortals release.) Watch Timberlake, Seyfried, and Niccol’s talk about the mysterious film with EW’s Dave Karger after the jump. READ FULL STORY
