    Box Office: 'Rio' First 2011 Release To Crack $40 Million Opening Weekend; 'Scream' Goes Quiet

    There’s no way to sugarcoat this: it’s been a dismal year at the box office. Studios have their fingers crossed in regards to a tepid-looking summer schedule, but many were hoping the season could be kick(punch)-started early with a strong April, as two new films were tracking well over $40 million ...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Hop' Defeats Four Newcomers; 'Your Highness' Flops Loudly And Rudely

    Earlier in the year, the tepid box office returns were something to be ignored, as 2011 was competing with the previous year, with both “Avatar” and then the anomaly of “Alice In Wonderland” each raking in a cool billion. Well, it’s April, and it’s time for Hollywood to panic. There have been no genuine out-of-the-box hits so far this year and lots of flops, and the two (barely) $100 million grossers considered underperformers (“Rango” and “Just Go With It”). Let’s face it, part of it is a failure of marketing, but the blame must be laid on inadequate product. Even when it comes to the early year doldrums, this has been a banner year for garb...

    2011 is apparently the anointed year of the Badass Chick, and this week we are double loaded with mini warrior assassin fairy Saorise Ronan in "Hanna" and bow-wielding Natalie Portman in "Your Highness" to erase that icky "Sucker Punch" feeling we've all been trying to scrub off. Oh and yeah, it jus...

    Q&A: David Gordon Green On 'Your Highness,' The Musical Deleted Scene & Shooting Big FX Comedy

    While arthouse heads may bemoan that David Gordon Green -- at least for the time being -- has left behind the dramatic character fare that marked his early work like "George Washington," "All The Real Girls" and "Undertow" they simply haven't been paying attention. From day one, Green has never hidden his enthusiasm for all things cinema from the artiest of obscure movies to big, dumb popcorn blockbusters. He's a true fan of film, with interests delving into nearly every genre and not constrained by invisible lines of what's approved, and there is no greater evidence of that than this weekend's "Your Highness." Starring James Franco, Danny Mc...

    Q&A: Danny McBride Talks 'Your Highness,' The Allure & Pitfall Of Sequels & Staying On Budget

    Comedian Talks About Potential 'Your Highness' And 'Pineapple Express' SequelsIf all goes according to plan this weekend, Danny McBride will wake up on Monday morning with comic stardom firmly within reach. For those who have been paying attention, McBride has been stealing scenes and building up a strong body of work over the past few years, with notable turns as the lead in "The Foot Fist Way," Rico in "Hot Rod," Cody the casual demolitions guy in "Tropic Thunder" and the good-hearted bro Red in "Pineapple Express." Of course, he is also the star of the cult HBO series "Eastbound & Down" as the boorish baseball player Kenny Powers. However,...

    Review: 'Your Highness' Is Fantasy That's Gloriously Absurd, Hilarious & Balls-Out Irreverent

    The potential failure of something calling itself "Your Highness" and being marketed, in the most blatant of terms, as a medieval stoner movie, is fairly, er, high. These are untapped waters, and a fairly ballsy decision for Universal, after several big-budgeted near-bombs, to make a big budget, ver...
