As much as I like Will Ferrell, I can probably live without another “Will Ferrell plays a man-baby” movie. I prefer the high-concept Ferrell of Zoolander, Stranger Than Fiction, and Talladega Nights to the broad-appeal Ferrell of crap like Daddy’s Home and Kicking & Screaming. Full Story

What else was the title for this post going to be? If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know I’m a big fan of Kevin Kwan’s book Crazy Rich Asians and the follow-up China Rich Girlfriend. Last year I wondered why even though Crazy Rich Asians came out in 2013 and was acquired for film adaptation a few months later the movie still hasn’t happened, when a book like Gone Girl goes from publication to film production simultaneously. Full Story

Michael Fassbender is in Tokyo today promoting Assassin’s Creed. The movie didn’t make much of an impact in North America but made back all of its money and more internationally.

What little worked in Fifty Shades of Grey worked because director Sam Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel played on a psychological thriller angle, and Dakota Johnson was able to use her natural screen presence to inject some slyness into Anastasia Steele that made her more than just a weepy doormat for the demanding, dominant Christian Grey to push around. Full Story
