    Weekend Box Office: Unfortunately, Bradley Cooper Is A Star As 'Limitless' Opens At Number One

    When your R-rated comedy does over a quarter of a billion domestically, it’s probably time to cash-in. And yet, the three stars involved in “The Hangover” have taken very different career turns between “Hangover” films. Ed Helms has found himself handicapped by not only being a “type” more than a real actor, but also having to return to NBC as a supporting actor on “The Office,” while planned collaborations with Judd Apatow and Steve Carrell never panned out. Zack Galifianakis has done the most with his newfound clout, starring in one bonafide $100 million grosser (“Due Date”), doing supporting work in high profile performers (“Dinner For Sch...

    Weekend Box Office: Cooper's Limitless Tops Weak Openers; Lincoln Lawyer and Paul Vie for Fourth

    The box office continues to be depressed, no matter what distributors throw at audiences. Adults and families are still turning up at the mutliplex, but where is that old reliable target demo, young males? Anthony D'Alessandro reports. No matter how many wide releases Hollywood booked in theaters this weekend, none could bail out Hollywood’s box office doldrums.  Relativity Media's Bradley Cooper drug thriller Limitless outperformed its $15 million estimate, tripping out with $19 million in number one – a bright spot for the production company whose self-distribution efforts have skidded since unspooling Warrior’s Way back in December.  The f...

    Have We Forgotten What We Really Need To Talk About?

    We spend so much time trying to find a way to make it this indie film thing work, to get good work seen and appreciated, to have a sustainable working model that might afford one to have a reasonable middle-class existence creating quality work (is that too much to ask?), we sometimes forget about w...

    Last night I saw a critics’ preview of The Book of Mormon, the new, already-sold-out Broadway musical from South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and Robert Lopez, co-creator of Avenue Q. I’m sworn to secrecy until the review embargo lifts at 10 P.M. Thursday, but I can tell you this isn’t...
