Hollywood's Positive Month Doesn't Cure The Patient's Long-Term Issues. By: MattInRC

Hollywood's Positive Month Doesn't Cure The Patient's Long-Term Issues. By: MattInRC
Back in late March, we reviewed the top box office performers year-to-date but also lamented about Hollywood's continued domestic woes. Among the bad news we reported at that time:


As of March 30th, the industry (compounded monthly) was down a staggering 63%;Five of the top 10 films were leftover releases from 2012;April was similarly terrible, reflecting a 12% loss from 2012 - at $634,100,000 - with a compounded-monthly loss of 75%;The market hasn't seen such poor performances since 2011.

These bits of data could have created bad omens for the Summer 2013 schedule, which does not have an Avengers, Dark Knight Rises, or Skyfall (all of which made $2 billion domestically) to lead the charge. But, we did have several intriguing releases such as Star Trek: Into Darkness, Fast Six, and Iron Man 3. So, how did the critical month of May fair for Hollywood? Actually, not too bad - in fa…

Now You See Me Review. It's Magic That's Full Of Holes

Now You See Me Review By: MattInRC
Now You See Me is big on showmanship but its tricks are too easy to spot.


Is there a modern film one can think of that doesn't use some sort of CGI? It's almost become as necessary as light tents and a camera to make your film. Gone seem to be the days of Cecil B. DeMille's gargantuan sets, where actors stood in front of thousands giving these scenes a life of their own. CGI was supposed to be the cheaper fix, magically transporting audiences to ancient planets, alien invasions, and enchanted forests, and limited only by the imagination (and budget) of the director and their creative team. But CGI's impenetrable armor has always been filled with cracks, with audiences beleaguered as far back as The Phantom Menace - since then, stiff performances by actors pretending to be frightened or battling a digitized enemy have become more common than it should. For every visual eye feast like Lord of the Rings and Prometheus, there's Jack…

New Look AutoBots For Transformers 4

One of the biggest movie heroes on six wheels is getting an overhaul for his next appearance on screen.

Michael Bay has released pictures of the new, updated Optimus Prime, the leading big rig in the "Transformers" series, as the vehicle will appear in truck form in the upcoming "Transformers 4." The new machine looks sleeker and more upscale than before, a vehicle any trucker would be proud to take out on the highway.


Which Autobot could this green machine be? It's a special race-inspired C7 Corvette Stingray, based on
Chevrolet's upcoming 2014 production car — and the first look is seen here on the set of "Transformers 4" near the border of Arizona and Utah

Manufactured by Western Star, a division of Daimler Trucks North America, the new Optimus Prime has the traditional dark blue paint job with stylish red flames highlighted by pinstripes, as well as gleaming exhaust stacks that curl up to the sky at an angle from behind the cab, instead of the…

Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Year's News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, she's forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother (Annette Bening and Christopher Fitzgerald). Adding further insult to injury, there's a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom (Darren Criss) and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother's bed (Matt Dillon). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she's ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.

Seth Rogen Is A Sell Out

Sony Pictures has acquired movie rights to former "Saturday Night Live" writer Simon Rich's four-part New Yorker novella "Sell Out" for "This Is the End" filmmakers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to produce through their Point Grey Pictures banner, TheWrap has learned.

"Sell Out" follows a fictionalized version of Rich as he meets his great-great-grandfather Herschel, who was preserved in brine for 100 years after a pickle factory accident and is baffled by his descendant Simon's lifestyle as a script doctor in hipster-filled Brooklyn.

The New Yorker published "Sell Out" in January, just weeks after the release of Rich's collection of short stories "The Last Girlfriend on Earth." Bendik Kaltenborn provided illustrations for "Sell Out."

Rogen is not attached to star but he will produce with Goldberg and Point Grey's James Weaver, while Rich will executive produce.

Rogen and Goldberg co-wrote and co-dire…
