"Scary Movie 5" opened in theaters this past weekend and if you're like most human beings, you're probably wondering just one thing: Why?
But the fact that Hollywood made yet another "Scary Movie" is really no surprise. After all, most studios believe that while you may not be able to beat a dead horse, you can certainly continue to milk a dead cash cow ... which explains why so many franchises continue to get sequels long after any they've stopped being interesting, fresh or creative. Why make something new when you can make something cheap and derivative instead? Get More »
The new Jackie Robinson biopic "42" hit a home run at the box office this weekend, earning an estimated $27.3 million according to Film.com to easily take the top spot.
Easily because this weekend's other new release, "Scary Movie 5," hit a weak popup to short, bringing in just $15.2 million for a second place debut. That doesn't sound too bad until you consider the fact that "Scary Movie 4," which came out way back in 2006, earned $40.2 million in its opening weekend. How the mighty have fallen.
It will be interesting to see whether or not "42" can maintain its momentum once it goes up against stiffer competition: Tom Cruise's sci-fi epic "Oblivion" is set to hit theaters this Friday. Until then, though, head over to Film.com for a look at this weekend's box office top ten.
It's come to this. The two most public figures of hedonistic excess and hurricane-level character destruction, meeting at last to decide who will have the better future film career based solely on their past shenanigans.
They appear together in the fifth installment of the "Scary Movie" franchise, debuting this Friday, and by all accounts, their time on set together was nothing but peaceful. But that ends today, folks. It ends now.

You may or may not be aware of what happens in the "Scary Movie" movies, but there's no way you will emerge from reading this a smarter person overall. I just watched all four "Scary Movie" movies consecutively and my brain is currently curled up in a ball shivering in a far corner of my skull, asking what it did to deserve that. Get More »
Love him or hate him, you have to admit one thing about Charlie Sheen: The guy is pretty damn entertaining.
The man who stole the 2011 media spotlight from every other celebrity with his bizarre behavior and madcap yammerings is currently making a comeback on the big screen, continuing this weekend with his turn in "Scary Movie 5." If the trailers and clips are any indication, Charlie doesn't do much in the movie beyond hang out in bed with Lindsay Lohan — which is, of course, just fine. Get More »

"Texas Chainsaw 3D" is 2013's inaugural sequel in a year chock full of them (29 in all). With this much franchise volume in one year, it's good to keep some perspective in terms of which series we're primed for ... and which ones shouldn't have had a first movie to begin with.
From the bad to the rad, here's our rundown of all the follow-ups fans have been clamoring for — or haven't, as the case may be. Prioritize your sequel viewing, people. Get More »
In Hollywood, there's often a fine line between good-natured parody and outright exploitation. You know, should a down-on-their-luck star take the potentially embarrassing "Celebrity Apprentice" gig or not? It can be a real grey area.
Luckily for us, though, Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan still haven't figured out the difference, which is probably why they both have such a large presence in the new trailer for "Scary Movie V."
Hey, if you can't get people to laugh with you, at least you can still get them to laugh at you. Get More »
We were excited to learn that headline-grabbers Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen were joining forces for what is bound to be the most killer cameo of 2013, but we didn't know just how "killer" it would be until now.
The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Lohan and Sheen's appearance in "Scary Movie 5" as "the world's hottest new couple" will end with both of them probably getting the ax within the first few minutes. Get More »
UPDATE: Lindsay Lohan has officially signed on to "Scary Movie 5," according to E! Online. She'll be joining Charlie Sheen, who's back for more meta-antics despite the fact that he was killed off rather spectacularly in "Scary Movie 4." Hey, you can always find a way to bring Charlie Sheen back from the grave, right?
"Scary Movie 5," which is reportedly a complete reboot of the franchise (for whatever reason the producers seem to think it needs to be), will hit theaters on Jan. 11, 2013.
