BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Ride Along held on to the number one spot, adding $12 million to is $92 million total. Frozen has been showing a James Cameron-esque ability to hold on to top box office positions, returning back to second place for this, its eleventh weekend in theaters. With this kind of staying power it's poised to break into the $400 million bracket and possibly give Iron Man 3 a run for second highest grossing release of 2013.
Looking to I, Frankenstein, That Awkward Moment and Labor Day for inspiration, we've pulled together a selection of reimagined horror, R-rated comedies, and tear-jerking romantic dramas.
We’re stuck in a deep freeze on the East Coast, which is fine with me. The outdoors are completely overrated. Especially when we’ve got some movies to talk about. This week it’s awkward moments and falling in love with escaped convicts.
Meet Jason, Daniel and Mikey of Tom Gormican's That Awkward Moment. They are three twenty-something guys who decide to stay single as a sign of solidarity after one of them suffers through a horrendous break-up. You know the kind where the only solace you can find is in comfort-binging on ice cream and whiskey? That kind of break-up.
It is a new year in cinema, at least for everyone who isn’t still coked up from Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street. Unfortunately, January tends to be a dumping ground where studios release all of the films that weren’t good enough to push for Oscar consideration or big enough to release during the summer tentpole season.
Teller has been on a fast track to stardom ever since he stole scenes in that Footloose reboot. He gets the best lines in the Awkward Moment trailers, and could be the breakout star of the ensemble comedy. The January release date concerns me, as very few great movies come out in the first month of the year. But we’ll see how the film connects when it opens in theaters on January 31st.
In the movie our three leads play twenty-something best friends who find themselves entering that stage in a relationship where things become something more than just a notch in a belt of sexual conquests (Even the title That Awkward Moment frustrates me, as it’s one of the most annoying social media sentence starters that ever existed).
Given the popularity of her character on True Blood, it's a wonder Deborah Ann Woll's feature career hasn't exploded in recent years. She's played a few movie roles and has some in the works, and she's done some guest-starring roles on other TV shows, but most probably associate her best as the kind-hearted but sometimes-troublemaking baby vampire Jessica on the HBO drama series.
Since playing the role of Willard in the 2011 remake of Footloose, Miles Teller's feature film appearances have been limited to a brief cameo as himself in the teen-party film Project X. But he has a number of projects in the works, so we should expect to see plenty of him come 2013. Among the growing list of films he's set to appear in is an independent romantic comedy called Are We Officially Dating?
For most men, staying single is the easiest thing in the world. They just go about their days, put in little to no effort with women and their Facebook statuses do not change. With almost unfair good looks and solid natural charm, the efforts of men like Zac Efron to stay single are apparently taxing and treacherous enough to form a comedy.
