BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Regardless, The Peopleís Choice Awards were held last night and it was announced that the Favorite Movie of the year was Shane Black'sIron Man 3 - which actually is about to be lapped by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as 2013's biggest film. Apparently The Hunger Games was released after the cutoff date for this celebration of avarice.
Hearing what director Tom McCarthy has to say about his upcoming film The Cobbler makes me really want to see the trailer for this film. Alas, itís a bit premature for that, but we do have our first look at Adam Sandler as a shoe repairman who looks like heís still in the process of starting his day in this photo.
Regardless of how an Adam Sandler comedy turns out upon full viewing, the trailers for his films continue to promote themselves as comedies that are both bottom-feeding and written by a class of middle school students who donít like each other. With this in mind, watching Blended was still a shockingly bizarre experience, and I donít understand how it didnít say ďBased on a Simpsons EpisodeĒ after the title screen.
Once upon a time, Adam Sandler churned out comedies with very modest budgets. They did pretty well at the box office and everyone involved turned a tidy little profit, leading to new greenlights and more creative freedom. Unfortunately, along the way, the budgets started getting bigger and bigger and long story short, heís now apparently the most overpriced actor in Hollywood.
Watching him as the star of Boardwalk Empire, it may be easy to forget that Steve Buscemi tends to pop up in Adam Sandler movies from time to time, the most recent of which would be Grown Ups 2. It appears the two funny men will be reuniting once again in Tom McCarthyís upcoming film The Cobbler, in which Adam Sandler will star as a shoe repairman who integrates himself into the lives of the people whose shoes he fixes. Also joining the cast is Dustin Hoffman.
White the source doesn't say if McCarthy wrote the script for the film himself - as he has with all three of his previous directorial efforts - it's noted that the story centers on a shoe repair man (played by Sandler) who somehow has the metaphysical ability to experience lives through other people's eyes "for a certain period of time."
Published in 2011, Kultgenís novel is a character study focused on the modern American family, and how technology and the internet have completely altered the familial landscape. Itís about the overt sexuality of teenagers and the repressed sexuality of their parents. Itís about making connections and the construct of the identity.
When people tell you the reason to see Grown Ups 2, it generally boils down to the idea that it's fun to spend time with Adam Sandler and his buddies goofing off. And even if you're not a fan of the actual movie, like I was, it's still true in real life: being in a room with Adam Sandler, David Spade, Kevin James and Salma Hayek is just fun. Especially when the four of them are clearly cooking up pranks together before you ever walk into the room
Instead of being some weird practical joke on society, it was a dish made by the one and only Guy Fieri when Sandler, David Spade, Kevin James and Chris Rock all appeared on Monday nightís episode of Fieriís Food Network series Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
The complaint says that the saw "was not properly fitted with safety components such as saw stops and safety guards." Because Houpert's right hand is his dominant hand, he says that the on-set injury has led to him losing work and therefore income. He is seeking $1 million in damages.
The Grown Ups star will team with director Chris Columbus for Hello Ghost, an American remake of a Korean supernatural comedy that will be set up at Universal. The pitch sounds an awful lot like A Christmas Carol, with Sandler set to play a suicidal man whoís visited by four ghosts who wonít leave him alone until he achieves some form of inner peace.
The romantic comedy pairing of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore has a solid history of success at the box office, with both 1998's The Wedding Singer and 2004's 50 First Dates considered big hits in theaters, but will the idea of their third time working together be enough for them to outshine a movie about apes taking over the Earth?
The story follows a man and a woman who have a horrible first date and then find themselves stuck together at a resort with their respective children from previous marriages. Given the two stars' chemistry in The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, however, presumably they eventually learn to fall in love with each other.
Everyone in this cast was a part of a legitimately enjoyable career at one point or another, yet somehow kismet took a day off and this full-length trailer for Grown Ups 2 exists.
It is the rare exception when an Adam Sandler comedy will draw more laughs than groans that get angrier by the minute. And while there is almost never anything redeeming about any of the characters he plays, itís somehow the romantic stories that become his most memorable films. Well, of any that donít feature giant penguins or fist fights with Bob Barker
Adam Sandler has a new project in the pipeline, and this one might not be the Razzie bait weíre used to, since it falls into the romantic comedy genre where he isnít judged quite as harshly by critics and fans.
Guardians is an unconventional comic-book property, and Marvel is approaching it with a little more freewheeling daring-do than they have, say, a traditional Iron Man or Thor movie. Hiring Super director James Gunn, for instance, was a bold step in a fresh direction, which is why Iím keeping a very open mind to the possibility of Sandler in a Marvel movie.
This time out, Sandler and his wife (played by Salma Hayek, of course) move the family back to Sandlerís home town, where the clan learns some valuable life lessons from the children on the last day of school. And David Spade likely gets raped by a farm animal, or some such hilarity.
Itís unclear why Sandler isnít requesting Sony seek a partner for this comedy. The comedian has had a very profitable relationship with the studio over the years. And while Thatís My Boy might have been his first high-profile financial misstep in years (heck, even Jack and Jill made an inexplicable $74M), the Sandler brand is strong.
On its surface the source material for Happy Madison's next film sounds more like something Michael Bay would tackle than Adam Sandler. Two wisecracking cops chase a getaway van loaded with stolen goods through the streets of a bustling city, tearing through crowds of protesters, weaving through traffic, dodging debris, making stomach-turning jumps, and ripping through massive explosions...
