    Jack Black Says 'The Big Year' With Steve Martin & Owen Wilson Was A "Career Nadir"

    Jack Black, for the all the success he's had in films like "The School Of Rock" or the "Kung Fu Panda" movies, is no stranger to flops. "Year One" anybody? How about "Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny"? But it seems one much more recent movie is an effort...

    2011 By The Numbers: The Year In Box-Office Flops

    No one likes to celebrate flops. No, really. OK, maybe when an arrogant, mouthy producer or star delivers a turd that had it coming, or some awful franchise finally stumbles, but especially in the latter case, when does that ever happen?

    Box Office: Slow Weekend As '80s Remakes 'Footloose' & 'The Thing' Open Soft; 'Real Steel' Stays #1

    Review: Birding Bro-mance 'The Big Year' With Steve Martin, Jack Black & Owen Wilson Is A Lame Duck

    It is, perhaps, too unkind to call "The Big Year" the perfect film to screen on a trans-oceanic plane flight whose compliment of passengers is made up solely of AARP Members.

    We have to admit, we kind of totally forgot this movie even existed, but with the release date now six weeks out, Fox decided to actually start promoting the upcoming comedy "The Big Year."

    First Look: Charlize Theron In Jason Reitman's 'Young Adult'

    Plus First Look Photos Of Daniel Radcliffe In 'The Woman In Black' & 'The Big Year' With Owen Wilson & Jack BlackWhile the adult drama is seemingly endangered thanks to the hegemony of brand-based franchises and tentpoles there are still a few directors managing to convince the studio system to work within these limits. Sure, you can probably count them on one hand, but Jason Reitman, the filmmaker behind "Up In The Air," and "Juno" is one of these directors. It probably helps that these budgets aren't extraneous, but we'll take what we can get. So here's a first look at one of The Playlist's most anticipated films of 2011, "Young Adult" star...
