Box Office: 'Lucy" #1, 'Hercules' #2, Slump Continues

Though no title did well enough to lift the box office out of its stunning summer slump, in their weekend debuts, both "Lucy" and "Hercules" are doing better than expected. Scarlett Johansson's "Lucy" easily snatched first place with a $43 million debut. Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" could nudge $30 million, which would put it about $5 to $7 million above some previous estimates. 26 Jul 2014, 7:00 AM PDT

'Lucy' Review: Bloated Concept, Uninspired Action

"Lucy" reminds me a lot of "Brainstorm" (1983) and "Dreamscape" (1984), two films from my high school days that reran endlessly on HBO. Both tried to paper over unwieldy concepts by throwing bucketfuls of cutting-edge special effects at a dull story that eventually collapsed. "Lucy" isn't dull but it is uninspired and does collapse. 25 Jul 2014

'Hercules' Review: Old-Fashioned Pulp Perfection

One unexpected and welcome twist is that Hercules is a bona fide hero, not an anti-hero (in the source material Hercules is a mean-tempered bisexual. Thankfully, there's not even a hint of that.).

Deadline Hollywood Plays Publicist for F-Word Spewing 'Black Jesus'

Apparently, to prove Deadline Hollywood is a hip Christian basher who will always defend Hollywood against those menacing Christian hordes who politely respond to and even pray for those who seek to insult their faith, Deadline goes so far as to try and make the AFA look -- you guessed it -- racist. 24 Jul 2014

Infant Son Spent 17 Hours Alone With Dead, Overdosed Peaches Geldof

Youth, beauty, fame, wealth, chic, her own career, a musician husband and two small children… Twenty-five year-old Peaches Geldof had everything popular culture tells us is important but still went down the same tragic path as that of her mother, Paula Yates. The only difference is that the heroin overdose that killed Peaches was 10 times bigger than the one that killed Paula in 2000 at age 41. 24 Jul 2014

Down Goes Sony's 'Spider-Man' Franchise

The Hollywood Reporter is surprise Sony bumped "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" a full two years, from 2016 to 2018, but they have to be in the minority. By charging ahead with the threequel of a dying franchise, Sony risked losing its shirt. Now it has 4 years to try and gin up interest or quietly snuff it entirely. 24 Jul 2014
