'The Heat' Director Paul Feig Lists His 'Farm Team' of Funny Ladies

Paul Feig knows from funny women. The director of "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat" (the latter of which is available on Blu-ray and DVD now), Feig broke the mold of the typically male-dominated realm of ensemble comedies, and proved that studios could make money while also catering to women.

At a dinner party in New York City celebrating the home release of "The Heat," NextMovie was able to chat one-on-one with Feig in a somewhat-quieter corner of the downtown SoHo House. Feig seems to invite the breathless "here's what they wore" recaps more commonly attached to female stars, so here goes: Charcoal three-piece suit, silky indigo necktie peppered with dainty white dots, a crisp white shirt, a purple pocket square bordered by white and coordinating purple socks.

It's not just a commitment to notable ensembles that Feig has in common with his fairer sex counterparts; he said he also tends to see the world from their point of view, saying that when he's tried writing scripts for a guy's guy movie a la "The Hangover," he didn't "have an honest take on it."

Melissa McCarthy and director Paul Feig are now two for two on successful movie matchings thanks to "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat," so now they're ready to take their money-making machine working relationship to the next level, a méfílme à trois.

For those who don't read semi-comedically butchered French, that loosely translates to they're re-teaming for a threefer, and the project which has brought the dynamic duo together again is Feig's own script, "Susan Cooper." Get More »

The National Association of Theater Owners has announced that the average cost of going to the movies in North America has reach an astronomical, all-time high of $8.38 in the second quarter of this year. This is a 5.5 percent increase over the first quarter ($7.94).

The reason? An uptick in 3D movies and IMAX and other large format screens, thanks largely to the bombastic, summertime movie fare. It wasn't enough that there were giant robots and monsters in "Pacific Rim," they also needed to be a hundred stories tall and in 3D. Get More »

'Monsters University' Withstands the Box Office 'Heat'

Pixar Pixar

It was a close call, but in the end "Monsters University" edged out "The Heat" at the box office this weekend, as according to Film.com, Pixar's latest animated hit topped Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock's R-rated comedy by the score of $46.2 million to $40 million.

That's still an impressive debut for "The Heat," but the same cannot be said for fellow newcomer "White House Down," as Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx's action thriller stumbled to fourth place with a disappointing $26.6 million.

Overall, though, no fewer than five films cracked the $20 million mark, as moviegoers spread the wealth around to "World War Z" and "Man of Steel" as well. For a full look at the box office top ten, head to Film.com.

The Best & Worst Boston Accents in Movies

The Fighter Paramount

There's something about the Boston accent in cinema that forces actors to feel like they really have to nail it. Of course, there are movies set in other cities (Chicago or New York, for example) featuring normally straight-voiced actors straining to sound like they're from the area. But it's not as seemingly mandatory as it is with a Boston-set movie. Get More »

Photoshop Disaster: Horrible 'Heat' Poster Mangles Melissa McCarthy's Face

Melissa McCarthy Heat Poster 300x250 20th C. Fox

Our girl Melissa McCarthy just cannot catch a dang break, can she?

Last time, while she was on the promo train for "Identity Thief," the peachy comedienne fell victim to some very poor critical phrase-age concerning her weight (which we're still kinda reeling over, by the way) and whaddya know? With another movie on the way, the heat is back on the giggly gal once again — this time with her as the subject of one of the most faily Photoshop efforts ever. Seriously, ever. Get More »
