'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' Tops Box Office

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Sony

There were no fewer than four new releases this weekend at the box office, but it turned out there was no real competition at all for the top spot, as "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" crushed the competition with a $35 million rake according to

That was way more than any of the other new releases managed. Ron Howard's racing drama "Rush" debuted in third place with $10.3 million, while the romcom "Baggage Claim" came in fourth with $9.3 million. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, "Don Jon," only brought in $9 million as well.

Next weekend should be a different story thanks to the team of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney and their new space epic "Gravity." Until then, though, you can check out this weekend's box office top ten over on

You'll Get A 'Rush' Out of Chris Hemsworth's New Trailer

From the moment "Thor" hit theaters two years ago, Chris Hemsworth has been a bona fide Hollywood superstar.

Well, it looks like we're about to find out, because the first international trailer for his upcoming racing drama "Rush" has just arrived courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. And if director Ron Howard has anything to say about it, this is the film that's going to turn Hemsworth from action star into star, period.  Get More »

Olivia Wilde has built much of her mystique on the premise that nothing fuels desire like the unattainable – particularly when the something in question is an attractive married woman.

Deadline reports that the recently divorced actress has landed a part that plays on just that theme, beating out a long line of hopefuls for the role of '70s supermodel Suzy Miller in Ron Howard's 'Rush.'

The movie tells the story of the intensely competitive relationship between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, as well as Hunt's equally complex, yet far more scandalous relationship with Miller. Get More »

Thor doesn't need a horse. He needs a race car!

Chris Hemsworth has found himself a detour on the road to the "Thor" sequel, as he's in talks to play the lead role in "Rush," according to Deadline.

"Rush" tells the story of British Formula One driver James Hunt and his rivalry with Niki Lauda for Formula One supremacy during the 1970s. The film is set to be the next directorial effort of Ron Howard.

This new "Rush" should not be confused with the old "Rush," the 1991 thriller in which undercover narcs played by Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh get a little too close to their work.

If all goes according to plan, "Rush" will go into production early next year before Hemsworth begins work on "Thor 2," which is slated for a July 26, 2013 release. Get More »

'I Love You Man' Brosephs Reunite... To Meet Rush(!)

I Love You Man
The year 2009 yielded two surprisingly awesome comedies, "The Hangover" and "I Love You Man". While Todd Phillips and crew are currently finishing "The Hangover 2," "I Love You Man" bromantics Jason Segel and Paul Rudd have finally gotten around to doing their own follow-up.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), it's not a sequel. But it is like the ending (or at least awesome DVD extra) that never happened, and it's fresh for the viewing on Funny Or Die. Get More »
