    Review: 'Despicable Me 2' Starring Steve Carell & Kristen Wiig

    The original "Despicable Me," released back in 2010 by Illumination Entertainment (a mini-Pixar that would go on to release "Hop" and "The Lorax") was, at its best, an easily forgettable trifle with a handful of hummable songs by Pharrell Williams. It concerned a super-villain named Gru (Steve Carel...

    Review: 'The Way, Way Back' Cost Fox Searchlight $10 Million. Was It Worth It?

    If there's one positive result from distributor Fox Searchlight's decision at the Sundance Film Festival to pay nearly $10 million for "The Way, Way Back," it should be this: It will remind people about "Adventureland," a far superior movie about an awkward, frustrated teen spending his summer worki...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Oz' Continues To Rule, 'Burt Wonderstone' Far Less Than 'Incredible'

    While it should be more than clear that "Oz the Great and Powerful" won't match the billion dollar haul of Disney's "Alice In Wonderland" – tears of sadness, Disney – still, this remains prime real estate for a family film as kids celebrate their spaced-out spring breaks. As such, 'Oz' has performed...

    'Once' Helmer John Carney Hired To Direct Steve Carell In Drama 'Dogs of Babel'

    Making the leap from TV comic to big-screen star has always been a tricky route -- one flop can put you right back to square one, and conversely, the temptation to take every project that comes your way, risking over-exposing yourself, seems to be a common one. There's no denying that Steve Carell's...

    Steve Carell To Turn 'Heat' Vibed Heist Flick 'Conviction' Into '48 Hours' Style Romp

    Getting your script picked up in Hollywood can be both a blessing and a curse. You can see your vision realized as it should be on the big screen or you can see it ripped apart, rewritten, retooled, dumped, re-acquired and re-imagined until it barely resembles the thing you first wrote. For Black Li...

    Oliva Wilde & Steve Buscemi Will Create Magic In 'Burt Wonderstone'

    Well, she's funny, beautiful and a name that seems to be everywhere these days. So it's not exactly a big shock that Olivia Wilde beat out Michelle Monaghan, Judy Greer (our pick), Sarah Silverman (who was the final contender) and Jessica Biel for the female lead in upcoming magician comedy "Burt Wo...

    Jim Carrey Joins 'Burt Wonderstone' With Steve Carell

    Carell's 'Imagine' With Al Pacino Put Into Turnaround At Warner Bros.Up until now, the on screen pairings between Steve Carell and Jim Carrey have been fairly limited. Of course, Carell featured in "Bruce Almighty" where he was the unfortunate victim of Carrey's God-powered tomfoolery (and of course, his character was spun off into "Evan Almighty" which the less said, the better). They also both took voice roles in the animated "Horton Hears a Who!" a couple years back and irony of ironies, Carrey made a (pretty lacklustre) cameo appearance on the season finale of "The Office" last spring, of course, by this point Carell had exited the show. ...

    Steve Carell To Star In 'Moneyball' Director Bennett Miller's Next Film 'Foxcatcher'

    First, we just need to get something off our chest. It's an absolute crime that with his run on the "The Office" now over, six-time Emmy nominee Steve Carell didn't win one time for his fantastic turn as the Michael Scott. More than just a bumbling boss, Carell found real depth and heart in Michael Scott that allowed the character to flourish over seven seasons. Okay, mini rant over. Regardless of industry accolades, Carell has used his sitcom success to spread his wings as a dramatic actor in fare like "Dan In Real Life" and "Crazy Stupid Love," however, his greatest challenge as an actor will find him paired up with "Capote" and "Moneyball"...

    'Crazy Stupid Love' Team Of Steve Carell, Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Reteaming For Backpacker Comedy

    Directing Duo Turned Down 'Bad Santa 2'While the third act plot twist to "Crazy Stupid Love" is hugely contrived and runs against the careful blend of comedy and drama that runs through everything before, the nicely crafted tone from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, and the engaging performan...
