This week: Bryan Singer adapts the British fairy tale of "Jack and the Beanstalk" into the underappreciated action-adventure "Jack the Giant Slayer," starring Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson and Ewan McGregor.
Also new this week is the coming-of-age comedy "21 & Over," the psychosexual drama "Stoker" with Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska, the quirky morality play "The Brass Teapot" with Juno Temple and the celebrity-riddled anthology film "Movie 43" starring, well, half of Hollywood. Get More »
You may or may not know that "Movie 43," the movie starring everyone you know and directed by everyone else, was seen by close to no one, making $5 million this weekend and finishing in a tie for sixth place at the box office. Disappointing, to be sure, and as is often the case when your movie is poorly reviewed and makes no money, now comes the 20/20 hindsight backtracking, courtesy of executive producer Peter Farrelly.
As our good buds at CinemaBlend report, Farrelly admits that his stars were pretty much guilted into being in the film. "They clearly wanted out! But we wouldn't let them." His strategy? "Wait for them. Shoot when they want to shoot. Guilt them to death." Get More »
"Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" became the fifth Jeremy Renner film in a row to hit the top spot at the box office, as according to Film.com the poorly reviewed action flick earned $19 million over its debut weekend.
That was enough to hold off returning champ "Mama," which finished in second place, as well as dead on arrival duds "Parker" and "Movie 43," which debuted in fifth and seventh place respectively.
For a full run down of the weekend's box office figures, including numbers for award season favorites "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Zero Dark Thirty," head to Film.com.
Greetings from the apocalypse! If you lost some fingers to frostbite while walking down the driveway to get your mail, don't panic, that's perfectly normal for this time of year … on the east coast, anyway. A few bits of drudgery opening at the multiplex will numb your brain even more than the cold, but lucky for you I've scouted out some alternative routes towards weekend moviegoing satisfaction.

The new comedy "Movie 43" weaves a bunch of different stories together from 12 different directors, including Peter Farrelly ("Dumb and Dumber") and Steve Carr ("Next Friday"). The vague trailer makes it difficult to figure out what the heck the movie is really about, but it all seems to be part of the master plan. And, the NSFW website — whatismovie43.com — includes some raunchy clips that prove the ensemble cast isn't trying to make it the next "Valentine's Day."
Boasting one of the largest round-ups of famous peeps in one film, the cast features everyone from Halle Berry, Seth MacFarlane and Hugh Jackman, to Kate Winslet, Anna Faris and Emma Stone. While none of them were actually at the premiere, we were there to talk to some of the other cast members — and other folks on the red carpet — about what's the most inappropriate thing they've ever seen online.

They're called gags for a reason, folks.
The idea of gross-out comedy is nothing new: Since the dawn of modern cinema, filmmakers have tried to capture audiences' "yucks" along with their yuks. Beginning with 1914's silent feature "Nell's Eugenic Wedding," in which a character eats soap and then repeatedly vomits for supposed chuckles, bodily fluids, nudity and innuendo have been trotted out for an uncomfortable laugh.
This weekend sees the release of "Movie 43," perhaps the granddaddy of all gross-out movies, consisting of several comedy shorts strung together to make an aggressively raunchy full-length movie. Boasting some of Hollywood's top names — Emma Stone, Hugh Jackman and Elizabeth Banks, to name just a few — performing unspeakable acts, some wide-eyed moviegoers may find the flick tough to stomach.
They say the best way to acclimate to a new experience or overcome a phobia is to face it. "Movie 43" doesn't come out in theaters until this weekend, so we can't show you more than the trailer right now, but we can condition you with the most gag-worthy gags in recent memory. Without further ado, please enjoy ("enjoy") the 10 gross-out movie scenes that haunt our dreams. Get More »

Ah, 2013. Breathe in that sweet, fresh, new year air. You're walking in a winter wonderland. Everything is new. A sense of possibility! A sense of having no clue what any of these January releases are about.
It's true: We've all been so wrapped up in hustling to see November and December's awards contenders before Hollywood's sparkliest posse gathers to repeatedly congratulate its members that we totally forgot that there are new movies coming out. "'Mama'? What's that?" you may think, puzzling over the coming soon roster. "Sounds sweet."

Man, 2012 was a pretty darn good year for films, right? "The Avengers," "Lincoln," "The Hunger Games," "Silver Linings Playbook," seriously, we could go on and on, as this past year has been one of the best in recent memory.
And that has us even more amped up to see what Hollywood does for an encore. Sure, 2013 has some pretty big shoes to fill, but there are always news movies to see, new adventures to experience, new stars to meet and new pop culture obsessions waiting to be born.
So with that in mind, we've put together our list of the top 50 Movies We’re All About in 2013. Because last year is just so last year. Get More »
Earlier this month we showed you the red-band trailer for raunchtastic comedy anthology "Movie 43," and although we love us some bare boobs and swear words you can now convince your mom to take you to see it courtesy of the brand-new green-band trailer from Relativity Media.
"Movie 43" features a star-studded cast getting their freak on in a variety of ridiculous short scenarios, including Richard Gear making some kind of iPod-like device for sex, real-life husband/wife combo Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts as unconventional home schooling parents, and Halle Berry pranking a blind kid on his birthday.
