  Apatow and Brand to Work Together Again
Posted by: Christine on Apr 23rd, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Total Film reports that comedy powerhouse Judd Apatow and his latest crew member Russell Brand (Aldous Snow in Forgetting Sarah Marshall) will be teaming up for a new comedy.

It’s called Get Him to the Greek and will also star Jonah Hill (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Superbad). Brand will be playing an out-of-control rock star who needs to be escorted to a show at the Greek Theater in L.A. More good news – Nicholas Stoller, who directed Sarah Marshall will also be involved. Throw in Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, and maybe even a cameo by Seth Rogen and I’ll be happy.

  Did It Bomb? Weekend of 3/21/08
Posted by: Katy on Mar 25th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Good evening, everyone! It is officially Spring, but up here in New England, winter is lingering for a bit too long!

This weekend brought a couple of new movies, so now it’s time to see if they lived up to their hype! Did I get it right this time or is it back to the old drawing board?

Welcome to this week’s edition of DIB?! Off we go!

Drillbit Taylor: Starring Owen Wilson and co-written by Seth Rogen, high schoolers are jonesing for a bodyguard and hire, you guessed it, Drillbit Taylor. In order to keep an eye on his charges, he also poses as a teacher and might get some love as a result!
Will It Bomb? Not a lot of positive feedback towards this, but it should do well, regardless. It’ll make it into at least the middle of the 10, and possibility into the #5 slot.
Did It Bomb?
It did much better than I thought it would! It landed in the #4 spot, bringing along a decent $10.2 million.
Outcome: Score! 1 out of 3.

Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns: Or as I like to call it, When Angela met Madea. Single mother Angela Bassett journeys to Georgia to meet the family of the father she never knew. This features an impressive supporting cast, including Perry as his alter ego.
Will It Bomb? Tyler Perry has the touch, so this one will do just as well as his other flicks. Absolute Top 5 contender.
Did It Bomb? I got another one! This earned a tidy $20 million, and blasted into the #2 position!
Outcome: Score! 2 out of 3.

Shutter: OK. I’ll spell this one out in three short bursts. Remake of another Asian thriller (what else is new?)…starring Joshua Jackson…apparitions show up in pictures that have been developed. Any takers?
Will It Bomb? With a vague trailer and an unoriginal story, it’ll make the Low-to-Mid end of the Top 10.
Did It Bomb? What a shock! This glided into #3 and made a nice $10.7 million.
Outcome: Strike! 2 out of 3.

***Official Box Office tallies and positions according to Variety (variety.com), The Hollywood Reporter (hollywoodreporter.com) and the Internet Movie Database (imdb.com).

As the old saying goes, two out of three isn’t bad! It’s a lot better than before, let me tell you! It’s looking up! Everything should hopefully go smoothly all through this season!

The question is, can I pull it off again? Later on this week, you’ll get a whole new set of assessments over at WIB?! That’s where the test will lie! I will see you then!

Posted by: Christine on Mar 17th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

A couple days ago we heard about How I Met Your Mother star Jason Segel writing a new Muppets movie. According to the MTV Movies Blog, Segel already has some friends lined up for cameos. Those friends include Superbad star Jonah Hill, all-around hilarious guy Paul Rudd, SNL star Kristin Wiig, and Knocked Up star Seth Rogen.

Who else would you want to see cameo in a Muppets movie?

Posted by: Christine on Jan 10th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Kevin Smith has started to chronicle the filming of his eighth movie, Zack and Miri Make A Porno and it sounds like everything is moving along like clockwork. Seth Rogen is a natural, as expected, since the part was written for him. Elizabeth Banks is pulling out the charm, as she does.

Zack and Miri is set for release sometime this year.
