    Seth Rogen & Zac Efron Team For R-Rated Comedy At Universal

    While Universal killed two high-profile, risky, ambitious efforts recently, putting the kibosh on Guillermo del Toro's "At the Mountains of Madness" and Ron Howard's "The Dark Tower," the studio isn't afraid to spend money. It's just that those holding the purse strings are choosing wisely and if you've been paying attention to the box office this summer, there is one genre that is not only making mad bank, but is also, generally speaking, pretty cost-effective: the R-rated comedy. "The Hangover Part II," "Horrible Bosses" and most importantly, from Universal's perspective, "Bridesmaids," have been smash successes. So it's no surprise then th...

    "Captain America: The First Avenger" Captivates But Has Little Care for Character

    Ten years ago, Joe Johnston directed "Jurassic Park III," a much-maligned sequel to the Steven Spielberg original(s) that can be enjoyed if you forgive the more cartoonish, Joe Dante-esque turn of the series (speaking of which, Dante should helm part IV). And it's not really too much worse than Spielberg's own sequel ("The Lost World"). Now Johnston gives us the latest "Avengers" franchise title, "Captain America: The First Avenger," and at many times it begs to be thought of as an entry in Spielberg's "Indiana Jones" series. Again, it's a cartoonish distortion of the original(s), but it's also not any worse than the last Spielberg-directed i...
