As movies like Iron Man 3 and Oblivion proved, we’ll show up when the studio finally opens the movie here. Shane Black’s sequel has banked $298M domestically to date, but a whopping $685M overseas. We just aren’t the powerful movie launch pad we once were, sad as that has become to admit.

Looking at Seann William Scott's American Pie character Steve Stifler, it's not exactly easy to picture him playing a guidance counsellor at a high school, but on the other hand, maybe that makes him a perfect pick for such a role in a comedy.
