Mark Wahlberg reveals ‘Entourage’ movie will start in spring

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Entourage’ fans have been waiting for a movie to get started for some time now, and it finally seems like things are moving forward.
Mark Wahlberg recently revealed that the script for the film is done, and they hope to start filming in the spring, states Hollyscoop. “[The movie is] going to get back to the basics, kind of like the beginning of the series. We had very strong female characters, but we want the guys to get back to just being guys,” Wahlberg said about what fans can expect.
And it sounds like Wahlberg wants the movie to be all about the boys: “I think they were all weighed down by these strong women towards the end of the series, so we are going to get them going crazy everyone wants to see them get nuts again.”

“Ted” and “Magic Mike” big box office opening

HollywoodNews.com: This weekend represented a shining example of the two best trends in mainstream moviegoing this year. As I wrote (here and here), we’ve seen a real upswing in both mid-to-low-budget mainstream fare that aren’t especially ‘tentpole-ish’ as well as a huge upswing in the number of R-rated films being released by the major studios.
As such, two of the four wide releases this weekend were both R-rated and all four were relatively small-scale and in 2D. That they mostly debuted to blockbuster numbers is an encouraging sign that not every movie need be a $150 million fantasy genre franchise entry. The top film of the weekend is also the best mainstream picture of the summer, as Seth MacFarlane’s Ted (review) debuted to a massive $54 million.
That’s the third-best debut for an R-rated comedy behind the $57 million opening of Sex and the City and the $87 million Fri-Sun debut of The Hangover part II. Among non-sequel/spin-off R-rated comedies, it topped the $44 million record debut of The Hangover and is the is among the top-ten best R-rated debuts of all-time. This is a massive win for all involved, bringing Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane serious film-making clout, further confirming that Mark Wahlberg is an actual ‘put butts in the seats’ movie star and giving Universal something to laugh about.
Speaking of Wahlberg, this is his second biggest opening behind the $68 million debut of Planet of the Apes back in 2001, and it needs only cross $133 million to supplant The Departed as his third-highest grossing film (Planet of the Apes and The Perfect Storm earned $180 million and $182 million respectively)

Mark Wahlberg’s “Contraband” – Security guards are people too!

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: As a whole, Contraband is a pretty unremarkable would-be thriller. There is almost no real action, and much of the middle act is a series of monotonous scenes of Kate Beckinsale being threatened and/or beaten by Giovanni Ribisi. While Ribisi’s character felt the need to continually antagonize Mark Wahlberg’s family after Wahlberg has already agreed to do the crime in question is to be debated, since you’d think you wouldn’t want to antagonize the professional criminal who is being entrusted with your precious cargo. Anyway, Wahlberg is the classic ‘former criminal gone straight’ archetype, complete with a loving wife and kids. If I my spoil the not-so shocking ending of the picture (…SPOILER WARNING…), Contraband ends on a mostly happy note, with Wahlberg having gotten away with the crime, protected his family (including his imperiled brother-in-law), and scored a large amount of capital for himself and his crew. And even though Wahlberg’s character is actually an accessory to a mid-film heist that ends in the wanton murder of about half-a-dozen people, he’s still an okay guy. After all, they were just security guards.
The first girl I dated in college was a young woman whose father was a security driver for some financial institution or another. I never met the man, but if I ever had I would have been tempted to ask him about how those in his profession are treated like absolutely expendable bugs on a windshield. Starting with Die Hard (where Alexander Godunov popped two guards at the very start of the Nakatomi Plaza takeover) and continuing through any number of Die Hard rip-offs over the last 24 years, few action films about terrorists are complete without an opening siege that sees the point-blank execution of any number of security people as the villains make their way to their base of hostage-taking/weapons-hijacking. And almost never are these hapless souls actually mourned by anyone else in the picture. Half the time they are literally forgotten as the film gets into gear. And what of their expendability in various hard-boiled crime pictures? We hear over and over again how top-notch Robert De Niro’s heist team is in Michael Mann’s Heat. Yet the first time we see them pull a job, they end up having to whack all three truck guards purely to show that [...]
