A large red bow sits besides a space-age looking black Cadillac Ciel in the driveway of a Palos Verdes, CA beach house. Seating inside this elaborate and expensive gift are four friends, once again united by the powers that be. A camera hanging out of a large matte black Mercedes SUV is fixed on the wheel of the car, then slowly pulls back as the group speeds up the driveway. In our head, we might imagine Superhero by Jane’s Addiction playing. But on March 17, 2014, the 18th day out of 35 in the filming of Entourage, things are as quiet as a pin drop.
The four friends in the car are Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier), Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara). Four years have passed since the conclusion of the HBO show of the same name. Now creator Doug Ellin is finally bringing Entourage to the big screen. That in itself might be a feat, but being on set, the bigger feat is the atmosphere, which is incredibly loose, friendly and collaborative. This isn’t like any film set I’ve ever been on. It’s way more laid back, way more funny and very much in the familial spirit of a group of people – both in front of and behind the camera – coming back to a world they love.

April isn’t even 48 hours old but at the movie theater, summer has already begun. With tonight’s opening of Furious 7, the trend of major blockbusters opening well before the first weekend in May continues. Fast Five, The Hunger Games and Captain America: The Winter Soldier are a few recent examples; next year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will open over a month before the traditional first weekend of summer. Let’s face it. It might be Spring outside, but it’s Summer at the movies.
With that in mind, the /Film crew decided to rank our most anticipated films of the season. Everyone on staff (Peter, Russ, Angie, David, Devindra, Angie, Chris, and myself) ranked their 20 most anticipated movies of summer 2015, those rankings were given point values, and then an overall list was created.

Vincent Chase and the boys from Queens are back in the second Entourage trailer. The film, written and directed by show creator Doug Ellin, opens June 5. It brings back to the screen the entire original cast including, but not limited to Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven.
This time, Ari Gold (Piven) is running his own studio and his first big bet is on Vince (Grenier). Vince not only wants to star in his own movie, he wants to direct it. That film is called Hyde, a modern take on the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, and it’ll make or break the long-time friends. Will things work out? Check out the new Entourage trailer – which is chock full of cameos – for a glimpse. Read More »
If Hollywood plays its cards right, there’s no way 2015 shouldn’t break every single yearly box office record on the books. The calendar is simply jam packed with huge movies. They may end up being good, or maybe they won’t, but either way they’re going to put asses in seats. These are films audiences are excited for. Films they demanded. In some case, films we’ve been waiting years to see or never thought we’d actually see.
All that said, there’s an embarrassment of potentially awesome movies coming out during 2015. I considered at least 50 before cutting back down to a top ten that really speak to my personal tastes. Then I threw in ten more for good measure. Either way, there’s no doubt that, as great a year as 2014 has been for film, 2015 undoubtedly has it beat in the “potential” column. Especially when it comes to those big time Hollywood blockbusters I tend to get really excited about.
So, without further ado, here are my most anticipated films of 2015. Read More »

Most of next summer’s big releases are still filming. One, however, is already done. That’s Entourage, the film version of the hit HBO show executive produced by Mark Wahlberg. Writer, director and creator Doug Ellin finished principal photography a few weeks back and just screened a rough cut for the actor. Seems that Wahlberg loved it. A good surprise is just how much he loved it. Wahlberg said the film is so good, he thinks it might be worth releasing before its planned June 2015 release date, and that Ellin should start thinking about a sequel. Read More »
The Entourage movie doesn’t open for 15 months, but production is well underway. In fact, the film opens on the same day as Jurassic World, and Entourage will be in the can before director Colin Trevorrow shoots a foot of film on the dinosaur sequel.
The writer and director of Entourage, Doug Ellin, has been doing a pretty amazing job documenting the production via Instagram. He’s put up plenty of images of his principal cast – Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrera, Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven – but also revealed a slew of cameos and plenty of returning stars who played key roles in the eight seasons of the hit HBO show.
