Every viewer, at one point or another, has asked the question, “What do movie stars do on set when they’re not filming?” We hear stories of pranks, or certain stars who head back to their trailer to nap. And then there’s Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson — who play Quidditch?

We have an exclusive video of Vaughn and Wilson behind the scenes of The Internship, enjoying a hot summer day with fellow cast members by playing the Harry Potter-inspired game. Surprisingly, Wilson wasn’t familiar with the game, but by the end of the day, “there was something about that game that just loved me,” Wilson explains in the video.

Watch the Quidditch match that resulted in one broken finger in our exclusive video below:

Box office report: 'The Purge' doubles the debut of 'The Internship' with $36.4 million

Many assumed that the weekend before the debut of Man of Steel would be a calm one at the box office, but that was not the case. Universal’s thriller The Purge surged into the top spot this weekend and shattered all expectations with a massive $36.4 million debut.

The film, produced by Paranormal Activity mastermind Jason Blum, cost only $3 million to make, and because its marketing campaign was predominantly digital (read: inexpensive), the micro-budgeted film will become a hugely profitable release for the currently on-fire Universal.

The Purge had an intriguing premise: for one night every year, all crime (including murder) is legal. Universal’s marketing team effectively communicated that twisted plot in trailers and ads, and the premise helped pack theaters, though it didn’t deliver on audiences’ high expectations. Crowds issued the film a discouraging “C” CinemaScore grade, and the film sank 38 percent from Friday to Saturday — a sign of poor word-of-mouth.

The Purge gave star Ethan Hawke his best opening weekend ever — trouncing Training Day‘s $22.6 million debut in 2001. Hawke also thrived on the indie circuit this weekend, as his film Before Midnight scored $585,000 from just 52 locations for an early $1.5 million total. Before Midnight‘s robust $11,243 per theater average trailed only one other film in the Top 20: The Purge, which had a sizzling $14,353 average at its 2,536 locations.

Universal reports that audiences for The Purge were quite diverse, with Hispanic moviegoers making up 33 percent of ticket buyers. Interestingly, the film also played predominantly to women, who accounted for 56 percent of the audience. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'The Purge' stuns on Friday with $16.7 million

The buzz around Universal’s Ethan Hawke thriller The Purge seemed like it was swelling heading into the weekend, but no one could have guessed that the film would over-perform the way it did yesterday.

The Purge earned an incredible $16.7 million on its first Friday (technically, that number includes Thursday night), and it’s headed to an opening-weekend gross of about $37 million, giving producer Jason Blum, the man behind the Paranormal Activity series, another runaway hit. The best part about all this for Universal? The Purge‘s budget was only $3 million.

It was a mixed bag of news for Fox’s Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson comedy The Internship, which came in second. On the one hand, the film exceeded lowered expectations with $6.6 million on Friday, putting the $58 million movie on pace for an $18-19 million opening weekend. On the other hand, that’s a rather tepid result for the duo that helped Wedding Crashers climb to $209 million total back in 2005. Certainly not a disaster, though! READ FULL STORY

Box office preview: 'The Purge' ready to scare 'Fast & Furious' out of top spot

the-purge.jpg

We’re just one week away from the arrival of the likely box-office behemoth Man of Steel, and studios aren’t releasing any real tentpoles this weekend for fear that they’ll be cannibalized by Superman in their sophomore frames. Two newcomers, horror film The Purge and Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson comedy The Internship, are hitting theaters, and while the former looks like it may score a weekend win, the latter seems headed for Burt Wonderstone territory.

The real question for The Purge is whether it can take out Fast & Furious 6, which hasn’t given up the pole position since its May 24 release. For Universal, distributor of both films, that’s a very good problem to have, and the studio may finish in first and second place this weekend — provided Now You See Me doesn’t (once again!) achieve a surprise second-place finish.

Here’s how the weekend is shaping up: READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Kristen Stewart aiming to 'Lie Down in Darkness.' Plus: Diane Kruger boards Terrence Malick's Lincoln biopic

• Abraham Lincoln is totally blowing up, you guys. Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) has signed up for The Green Blade Rises, playing the 16th U.S. president’s influential stepmother Sarah, who married Lincoln’s father in 1819 after his biological mother Nancy died from an illness. The film, produced by auteur Terrence Malick and penned by first-time director A.J. Edwards (credited as an editor on Malick’s upcoming To the Wonder), spans three years in Lincoln’s childhood in rural southern Indiana. So the black-and-white film, which begins shooting this fall, won’t overlap with Steven Spielberg’s impending biopic Lincoln, which covers the man’s final four months; but it will overlap with a few of the events in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which had a much different suggestion for what killed Ma Lincoln. (Hint: It’s in the title.) (No, not hunters.) [Deadline]

Check out projects for MATTHEW McCONAUGHEYWILL FERRELL, CHRIS PRATT, KYLE CHANDLER, MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEADBOB ODENKIRK, YASIIN BEY (A.K.A. MOS DEF), and OCTAVIA SPENCER below:  READ FULL STORY
