More People Went To The Movies After 9/11 Than In The Last Two Weeks
There's not much good to say about this past weekend of moviegoing. Both of the new wide releases, The Sitter and New Year's Eve, weren't all that good, and though New Year's Eve managed to win the box office, it did it with just $13.7 million, on top of the lowest weekend box office since September of 2008. But in fact, the picture is even grimmer than that

Weekend Box Office: New Year's Eve's Party A Bust
If Hollywood were to hang up a stocking for Santa this year, it would slowly filling up with one lump of coal after another. This weekend two new releases hit theaters and both were ticket sale disappointments.

Can New Years Eve's Weak Box Office Kill That Rom-Com Style For Good?
Even when the weekend's movies are dogs, it's always a bummer to see Hollywood fall on its face for a weekend-- we all want the movie industry to survive, right? But if there's one huge silver lining here, it's that the New Year's Eve/Valentine's Day mini-franchise is pretty much over, meaning we'll probably never see

Planning Garry Marshall's Next Holiday Romance: St. Patrick's Day
Hoping to stay ahead of Marshall’s holiday curve, I’m put together a pitch. Some suggestions, from a bona fide Irishman, in case Marshall wants to sprinkle “céad míle fáilte” across his next ensemble comedy. Is this a ringing endorsement for yet another holiday-themed effort by the Pretty Woman director? Not exactly

This Rotten Week: Predicting New Year's Eve And The Sitter Reviews
The Rotten Watch is back after taking some time to look back, reflect, and catch a quick breather from the endless movie onslaught. I need a clear mind when taking many of these flicks to task. But the batteries are recharged and its time to get back to work. This week the big ball drops and Jonah Hill joins the Babysitter’s Club

New Year's Eve Poster Goes For Gold, Love And New York City
With a cast as great as New Year’s Eve’s, you’d think the film would be an easy sell for those of us who love a bit of romance in our movies around the holidays. But if Valentine’s Day has taught us anything, it’s that a huge cast of familiar names and pretty faces does not guaranty a hit.

New Year's Eve Poster Replaces Creativity With Star Appeal
It's a marketing department's wet dream to have a cast filled with nothing but stars. When it comes to poster design there's nothing that they love more than posting a series of floating heads. There is, however, a point where you have too many stars. After all, there's only so much room available to stick celebrity faces.

Second New Year's Eve Trailer Gathers Every Hollywood Celebrity Into One Movie
Despite what you may think, there are few places in this world worse than Times Square on New Year’s Eve. Think about it: it’s a choice to stand in the blistering cold for hours on end surrounded by aggressive (and sometimes smelly) people who would be happy to step on your face if it meant getting one step closer to Ryan Seacrest.

New Year's Eve Trailer Casts Every Actor Ever
After the success of Valentine’s Day, it should be no surprise that director Garry Marshall and New Line are returning to the same formula for New Year’s Eve. They’ve managed to rally most of Hollywood to show up, a few are returning from V-Day, to star in a multi-branch story that ultimately all ties together at the end and everyone winds up happy.

Posters For Contagion, Final Destination 5 And More Arrive Online
Last week was the 2001 Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas. While much of what came out of the convention wasn't that great, it did provide looks at projects including The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Hunger Games. But while the expo has long since ended, concept art is still leaking online.

Carla Gugino Added To New Year's Eve
All of twenty minutes after I finished reporting Halle Berry was back in New Year’s Eve, we now have confirmed reports she’ll be joined by former Night At The Museum star Carla Gugino. The Watchmen actress already has a pretty full plate of upcoming releases, as next month she’ll be seen reteaming with Zack Snyder for Sucker Punch and this summer, she’ll be seen in Mr. Popper’s Penguins with Jim Carrey.

Halle Berry Back In New Year's Eve
Remember when they rewrote Tom Cruise’s role in Salt for Angelina Jolie? That movie turned out to be passable, but I was pretty red faced about it at the time. How can you just change pronouns alter a few scenes and plop in a woman? It’s still hard for me to grasp. This casting switcharoo? Not so much.

Frankie Muniz Making His Comeback With New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve Finds A Place For Josh Duhamel
Whenever I look at Josh Duhamel, I can't help but see a much less badass Timothy Olyphant, and it may have something to do with the roles they choose. While Olyphant is busy roaming Kentucky

De Niro, Pfeiffer, Kutcher And Swank Joining The Cast Of New Year's Eve?
Every time I think that Robert De Niro is on the path back to being a respectable actor, he takes on a role that simply depresses me. It's been far too long since Travis Bickle had a truly strong run and if he keeps taking

Could Taylor Swift Be The Star Of The Valentine's Day Sequel?

Valentine's Day Sequel New Year's Eve Already Greenlit
Valentine's Day hasn't even opened yet, but let's face it, we all know it will be a rom-com behemoth that will crush us under the weight of its starpower. So why wait for something like reviews or box office receipts to greenlight a sequel?
