11 Photos of Adam Sandler Dressed Like a Tween

Many actors are known for their impeccable style and fashion. Glitzy premieres can be as much about the clothes as they are about the movies, and awards season would not be complete without full coverage of the night's red carpet looks.

Adam Sandler, however, is not one of those actors. The "Grown-Ups" star is known to show up a little bit under-dressed at high-profile events, wearing ensembles that must make The Fashion Police cringe. In some ways, you gotta respect it: Dude is so rich, he just wears what we wants, even if it makes him look 13.

'Despicable Me 2' Saves the World From Adam Sandler

Grown Ups 2 Columbia Pictures

It was a close call, but "Despicable Me 2" barely saved the world from the haunting specter of another Adam Sandler number one, as Gru and company eked out a box office win over "Grown Ups 2" according to Film.com.

That left Guillermo del Toro's robot flick "Pacific Rim" with a bad case of sadpants, as the extremely expensive CGI fairy tale brought in $38.3 million in its debut. Decent, but not enough to beat out "Despicable Me 2's" $44.7 million or "Grown Ups 2's" $42.5 million.

For a full rundown of this weekend's box office figures, including numbers for returning hits like "The Heat," "World War Z" and "Man of Steel," head to Film.com.

"Well, the first thing is that I love monsters, I identify with monsters." — Guillermo del Toro

Greetings from the apocalypse! This week sees one of my most anticipated releases of the summer, "Pacific Rim," making land at the competitive blockbuster season. Whether it can survive at the box office, as the dismal tracking numbers bode ill for, is incidental, as it’s a miracle that such a bonkers movie exists at all, even in sweded form let alone $175-million-dollar form.

*SPECIAL NOTICE*
Brooklyn's Bottleneck Gallery has a new movie-themed art print show going up tonight titled "Where is My Mind," and yours truly has crafted a special tribute to one of my all-time favorite movies, Terry Gilliam's "Brazil." The exhibit runs through July 26, and prints go on sale online Saturday at noon. Check it out — there are some amazingly trippy pieces by some dynamite amigos that all film fans will go nuts for, including some other Gilliam flicks! Get More »

Hot People Looking Hot: Salma Hayek Photos

Muy bonita. Muy, muy bonita.

Salma Hayek is a good sport for once again humoring Adam Sandler and appearing as the wife who's way too hot for him in "Grown Ups 2," the sequel to the 2011 ensemble comedy that allowed Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade to charge us admission to their working vacation. Salma upstaged all of the silly shenanigans with her fiery Mexican beauty, and we figure she will a second time.

Check out our collection of Salma looking muy caliente in movies, on television, in photo shoots and on the red carpet.

Supercut: Every Tumble (Literally!) of Kevin James' Career

Ahhh, Kevin James. We love him for many reasons: the way he owns that jolly, robust appearance and then flings out all those family-friendly zingers. Oh, and there's also the matter of his unique dedication to peanut butter.* But one of the things we really love most about this man (and, let's face it, there's a lotta man to love here) is definitely his tendency to fall down.

Like, it happens everywhere, all the time. Especially in his movies, as this fun mash-up goes to show. Get More »

2013 Summer Blockbusters Re-Imagined as Indies

Summer movie season is once again upon us, as the likes of "Iron Man 3," "The Wolverine" and "Pacific Rim" are set to blow us through the back wall of the theater with their huge action sequences, top-notch special effects and occasional witty quips.

But blockbusters aren't the only kind of movies at the multiplex this summer; they share space alongside quieter, more critically acclaimed fare. And let's face it — inside every loud, attention-grabbing, big-budget action flick or raucous all-star comedy, there's a sensitive, modest indie just waiting to get out. Right?

With that in mind, we've once again reinvented 10 summer blockbusters as smaller, less explosion-heavy films. After all, it's not such a huge leap to see "Fast & Furious 6" as a twee road trip movie about a non-traditional family or "Man of Steel" as the ultimate tale of an outsider wandering the Earth in search of identity and purpose.
