You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who knows more about the business of making films than Steven Spielberg, so when he speaks, we all better listen. The iconic director is worried about the current state of the film industry, saying big changes are in store. Talking at USC, Spielberg says an inevitable "implosion" is coming.
Spielberg told students and faculty that when a few $250 million budget films flop, the studios are going to take it out on the consumer. "You're gonna have to pay $25 for the next Iron Man." Spielberg also says it's harder and harder to get smart films like Lincoln into the theaters. "I think eventually the Lincolns will go away and they're going to be on television," George Lucas said. "As mine almost was," Spielberg interjected. "This close -- ask HBO -- this close."
Considering our last post about $50 mega tickets, it's tough to argue with Spielberg.

Selena's latest role was in the racy film Spring Breakers, but even in it she played the good girl. What do you think? Should Selena go this route? My vote: NO.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has dropped the followup to the 1994 hit film after Steve Carell's The Incredible Burt Wonderstone failed to recoup its budget.
Directors / writers Bobby and Peter Farrelly will now take the movie to other studios to seek financing. If not there, I'm sure it would raises millions on Kickstarter!

From Edward Scissorhands and Donnie Brasco to Finding Neverland and Pirates of the Caribbean, Depp has given us hours and hours of wonderful entertainment. He's been nominated for three Oscars, but has still yet to win one. That needs to change.
Happy Birthday JD!

Joe Neumaier of the NY Daily News asks, "Who let an unfunny, irritatingly acted two-hour commercial for Google onto multiplex screens?" Writing in The Huffington Post Carole Mallory says, "The Internship reteaming Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn ain't no Wedding Crashers. The problem isn't their acting. It's Vince Vaughn's and Jared Stern's predictable writing. Clichés abound." On Rotten Tomatoes, the film currently has a 32% fresh rating.
Regardless of the reviews, will you still see The Internship in the theater?

Hilarious! I love how older people can just do whatever they want.
Who else can't wait to be old?

The comedy hits theaters this August. In the meantime, we can keep watching this trailer over and over gushing at Jen's body.
And she's 44!!

Time Out New York says of the flick, "Humor feels like an afterthought: Galifianakis' clueless manchild act, always a winner, feels pitifully DOA, while Cooper and Helms, having realized they could play their respective douche-dude and nebbish roles in their sleep, proceed to do just that."
With all the poor press, will you still be handing over $8-12 to see The Hangover III?

Christian Bale is one of the best actors in the biz, and he routinely dedicates his body to his art. Bale's body has undergone some serious transformations over the years. He launched his career with a toned body in American Psycho, then went frail thin for The Machinist. He returned to the buff and ripped look for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, only to drop all the muscle for The Fighter… now Christian is showing some extra pounds while filming the new historical thriller American Hustle.
American Hustle is about an FBI sting operation on an United States Congressman (No other details have been revealed). Directed by David O. Russell, the film also stars big names such as Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Amy Adams.

Based on the extremely popular game, a movie adaptation of Angry Birds will be coming to a movie theater near you in the summer of 2016. Sony has acquired the worldwide distribution rights and has tagged John Cohen and David Maisel, producers of Despicable Me and Iron Man respectively, to create the film. Better them than I: How in the world do you turn Angry Birds into a feature-length film?!
Is this gonna be one huge mess??? ;)
