Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day

We’re having a pretty good day, thanks in part to Disney’s decision to drop the first official Guardians of the Galaxy still after months of anticipation. But if you aren’t, maybe the studio’s other big reveal will be more your speed.

Disney has just debuted a new image from Miguel Arteta‘s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, based on the classic children’s book by Judith Viorst. Though Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) is the only title character, the awfulness of his day does not seem to be limited to him. The rest of the family, which includes Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner, doesn’t look too happy either. Check out the photo after the jump.

Jack and Jill

It seems like every few months, there’s a new article about how movie stardom just isn’t what it used to be, and how even the biggest names can no longer guarantee a box office smash. Nevertheless, the world’s most popular actors continue to get paid a lot, and not all of them actually make those hefty paychecks worth it.

According to Forbes, the worst value in Hollywood right now is Adam Sandler, whose Jack & Jill and That’s My Boy tanked horribly. He’s followed closely by Katherine Heigl and Reese Witherspoon, and at more of a distance by his pal Kevin James. Find out who the next six are after the jump.

Foxcatcher

We took our first peek at some footage from Bennett Miller‘s Foxcatcher yesterday, but it may be some time yet before we get to see the rest of it. Sony Pictures Classic has just delayed the fact-based drama to 2014, pulling it out of contention for the upcoming Oscar race. Hit the jump to find out why.

Foxcatcher

If Michael Scott had one defining characteristic on The Office, it was his bottomless need to be loved. Not content with just being the boss, he insisted that his employees treat him as a close confident, a best friend, or even a family member.

That same neediness appears in Carell’s next film, Foxcatcher, only it’s pushed to disturbing new heights. Directed by Bennett Miller, the drama depicts the shocking true tale of chemical heir John du Pont (Carell), who takes an Olympic wrestler (Channing Tatum) under his wing. “A coach is a father. A coach is a mentor. A coach has great power on the athlete’s life,” he intones ominously. Mark Ruffalo also stars, as Tatum’s brother. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Bennett Miller

After Tom Hanks, Steve Carell may just have the nicest of nice-guy images in Hollywood. True, Michael Scott could be a jerk, but deep down he was a big ol’ softie who just wanted to be loved. In the movies, Carell’s tended to play sweethearts in warm comedies like Crazy, Stupid, Love. and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Even when he voices an out-and-out villain like Despicable Me‘s Gru, he turns out to have a cuddly side.

Which may be why he had to go undergo a dramatic physical transformation, including a whole new nose, to bring out his dark side in Bennett Miller‘s Foxcatcher. The fact-based drama stars Carell as John DuPont, a mentally unstable chemical heir who befriended two Olympic wrestler brothers (Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum) and ultimately killed one of them. Hit the jump to see the first official image.
