Weekend Box Office: Hansel and Gretel Take Top Spot On Disappointing Weekend
It was a lame weekend for audiences as Hollywood unloaded three major stinkers into theaters. All three newcomers bombed with critics and they could barely score a positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes if you added all three of their percentages together. All three movies dodged critics by not holding review screenings, a bad start for a less than promising weekend.

This Rotten Week: Predicting Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Movie 43 And Reviews
The winter movie season is picking up steam. (One thing I love about writing this column is I can always start off with the (fill in the blank) movie season and be somewhat correct. Just another reason movies are the gift that keeps giving.) This week we’ve got some kids hunting for witches, ensemble casts and Statham just kind of doing the same thing he always does

Jason Statham Is A Master Of Disguise In New Parker Featurette
Author Donald Westlake's character Parker has appeared in multiple film adaptations, but strangely has never actually gone by his real name. In 1967's Point Blank the character was played by Lee Marvin, but he went by the name Walker. In 1999 he popped up again in Payback with Mel Gibson, but there he was called Porter. So now that the real Parker is coming to theaters its only appropriate that he be featured in many different disguises to hide his identity.

Jason Statham Wants Payback, Not Vengeance, In New Parker Trailer
I’d have to go back and double-check, but I’m fairly certain there’s one stunt-sequence moment in every single Jason Statham trailer that’s so ridiculously over-the-top that you just have to shake your head, grin, and admit, “Yeah, Statham, you got me. I’ll go see that on the big screen.”

Jason Statham And Jennifer Lopez Mix It Up In Parker Trailer
In the crime thriller Statham plays Parker, a kind of modern Robin Hood who lives by a code: "I don't steal from people who can't afford it, and I don't hurt people who don't deserve it." But there's no honor among thieves, so when the titular protagonist turns down a jewelry robbery proposed by a merciless thug (Michael Chiklis), he's shot and left for dead. Hungry for revenge, he teams up with a real-estate agent (Jennifer Lopez) to plan a complicated heist of his own.

Michael Chiklis To Face Off Against Jason Statham As The Villain In Parker
When it comes to film work, Chiklis is best known for playing The Thing in Fox's Fantastic Four movies, and while he was the best of those films, his talents far exceed what was presented. Combine Hackford's directing skill with the idea of Statham and him squaring off and we should be in for a real treat.

Jennifer Lopez In Talks For Parker And What To Expect When You're Expecting
Jennifer Lopez has really become an unwatchable actress, not because she's terrible at what she does, but because the projects that she chooses are absolutely terrible. In the last decade she's put her name to some truly notable pieces of shit like Gigli, Monster In Law, and Maid in Manhattan, yet she keeps plugging away and gets people to hire her.
