    'The Expendables,' 'Red' & 'Step Up' Being Eyed For Potential TV Series

    Earlier this year, Lionsgate bought Summit for big pile of money, and the question more savvy business types began asking was: "Why?" Granted, the indie studio was successful, largely due in part to the "Twilight" franchise, but it remained to be seen how Lionsgate would exploit ...

    'Red' Sequel In The Works, Jon & Erich Hoeber Hired To Write The Screenplay

    For whatever reason, audiences in 2010 loved seeing aged movie stars play action hero. Sylvester Stallone scored a huge hit with "The Expendables" a movie sold as a riff on dumb '80s action movies that was actually just a dumb '80s action movie. And two months later, "Red" scored big at the box office too, as audiences wanted to see Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren kick some ass. In our opinion, that film was also a letdown, leaving us wondering how Robert Schwentke gained so much late summer hype based on early word from a film was tonally inconsistent and far too long for what it was. But hey, box office numbers...

    Box-Office: R-Rated 'Due Date' Can't Outwit The Animated 'Megamind'

    It had all the ingredients of a big winner. "Due Date" was widely known as Todd Phillips' R-rated follow-up to the massively successful R-rated "The Hangover," and he had that film's biggest breakout comedian Zach Galifianakis onboard, plus one of the world's biggest stars Robert Downey Jr. But perhaps seasonal timing is everything. "The Hangover" was a surprised hit in the early summer of 2009, and perhaps R-rated comedy that's occasionally nasty doesn't work quite as well in the fall. It's also possibly one of those instances when audiences actually listened to critics for once. "Due Date" was met with mixed reviews and currently holds a r...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Saw 3D' Cuts Up The Competition; 'Jackass 3D' Crosses $100 Million

    While there was a brief moment this year when Lionsgate and Paramount were both eyeing an October 22nd bow for their respective horror franchise sequels, it was a probably a good idea that "Saw 3D" moved out of the way. Opening to $24.2 million, the figure is nowhere near the $41.5 million haul last weekend for "Paranormal Activity 2," but though the figure is being seen as a "disappointment" in some quarters, we don't imagine Lionsgate is too upset. It takes the number one slot this weekend and represents an uptick for the franchise which saw its last two installments open in second place with figures under $20 million. And while it's not in...
