Kevin James‘ 2009 comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop was never supposed to be a hit. The film opened in the dregs of the movie schedule, January, had no real stars outside of James and sported one of the most joke worthy titles in recent memory. What was the result? Almost $150 million in domestic box office. And in a era where international grosses mean everything, Paul Blart only did $37 million overseas. Yes, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is a movie America demanded with their hard earned dollars. It’s scheduled for release April 17, 2015 and the first trailer is now out. Below, watch the Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 trailer. Read More »

After a season spent on HBO’s deathly dark True Detective, Michelle Monaghan is ready for some much lighter fare. She’s just booked the female lead in Pixels, the video game-inspired action-comedy being directed by Chris Columbus and produced by Adam Sandler. She joins a starry cast that also includes Kevin James, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and, of course, Sandler himself.
Along with reports of her casting come a host of new details about the plotline and characters. Hit the jump to find out what everyone will be doing in the movie, as well as when we’ll see them doing it.

Briefly: The Kevin James comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop may have been a punchline for anyone who wanted to tear down a dumb comedy, but the movie made money. Plenty of it, in fact. (Almost $200m globally against a $26m budget, and that’s before ancillary earnings.) With James continuing to be a draw in stuff like the Grown Ups films, you can’t be surprised that Sony thinks a Paul Blart sequel is still a good idea.
So Andy Fickman (Parental Guidance) is now in talks to direct the sequel, with James once again set to star and co-write with Nick Bakay.
THR says the film will likely shoot starting in April, and we don’t know whether or not this would hit late this year or in 2015. The latter seems more likely, which means films like Avengers: Age of Ultron and the Man of Steel sequel should start getting scared.

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.

The summer schedule is chock full of sequels we’re dying, or at least very curious to see. This weekend alone has Fast & Furious 6 going up against Before Midnight, for example. Monsters University and The Wolverine are due out in the following months. And so on.
Today, however, we have a trailer for what may be the least-anticipated follow-up of the season. (Least-anticipated by the hardcore movie crowd, that is.) Grown Ups 2 reunites Adam Sandler, David Spade, Kevin James, and Chris Rock in their hometown for still more hilarious shenanigans. The film also brings some fresh blood into the mix, in the form of Taylor Lautner, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Shaquille O’Neil. Watch the video after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Grown Ups is one of the movies from the past few years that many people love to hate — even those people who haven’t seen it. (Confession: I have not seen Grown Ups.) Presented below, mostly without comment, is the trailer for Grown Ups 2, in which Adam Sandler and Salma Hayek move out of LA and back to their home town. Soon they’re joined by much of the rest of the cast from the first film, and if this trailer is any indication, the hijinks that ensue are wacky.
And keep an eye out for Taylor Lautner, doing comedy on purpose. Read More »
