So, there's two ways to look at this story: as a reteaming between Colin Firth and Emily Blunt who star in "Arthur Newman" opening today or as the rare non-Happy Madison outing by Adam Sandler. We'll let you decide which one you want to go with, but the bottom line is this is a pretty good, and unexpected cast for this upcoming comedy.

So, this summer marks a not so momentous occasion: "Grown Ups 2" is the first Adam Sandler sequel. And in making the followup to the smash hit "Grown Ups" -- a movie we still have a tough time believing anyone actually liked, even though lots of people went to see it for some reason -- Sandler rounded up some extra help to join his regular crew. And we never though we would type this but it's come to the point where Taylor Lautner is now funnier than Adam Sandler. Really.

Spring is coming, which means Adam Sandler needs another paid vacation with his friends, so he's deciding to make a new movie. No, it won't be that western "Ridiculous 6," probably because that would've required changing out of track pants, but instead he'll be gathering up a familiar team for a resort set rom-com. Hooray.

2012 wasn't lacking in terrible films, but it seems for the folks at the annual Razzie Awards -- celebrating the very best of the worst -- it was time to honor one franchise for delivering consistently schlocky films to massive box office success.

While some thought that Judd Apatow’s 2009 dramedy “Funny People” could mark a turning point of sorts for Adam Sandler, the comedy star has dedicated the years since to further become the type of actor he lampooned in the viral ads for the Apatow film. And now, Deadline is reporting that he’s thinking about teaming up again with the actress he’s already romanced in two previous films, to diminishing returns.

Latino Review continues their run of comic movie rumorin'. Today's rumor du jour involves the good folks at that site revealing that producers of 2015's planned "Justice League" movie have nailed down a cast of characters for the film, and are limiting the famously huge roster to five core members. We always knew Superman and Batman would be a part of the group, having their own separate franchises with this year's "Man Of Steel" and a possibly forthcoming "The Batman" on it's way. But who would join them?

Once seen as a series of soaring precedents afforded to Hollywood's best and brightest, the massive paychecks given to high-profile actors and directors today have since grown smaller with the film industry's cost-cutting measures. However, for an elite group of individuals, their price tag remains as high as it ever was, but now a recent list has revealed a slow reversal has begun for those once deemed financially golden.

Given that these days, Adam Sandler movies are generally vehicles by which he can get a paid vacation somewhere fun, where he can hang with his buddies ("Just Go With It," two "Grown Ups" movies), it looks like the actor is ready for some wide open spaces and saddle sores.

It seems Adam Sandler has welcomed a new, young recruit into his stable of regulars, in the fresh-faced and funny Andy Samberg. The duo paired up in last weekend's wickedly unfunny "That's My Boy," and in case you missed it, Samberg recently stopped by the set of "Grown Ups 2" for a cameo. And now they've paired up once again, though you might not recognize them right away.

Kids sure do love these CGI ‘toons. “Madagascar 3D: Europe’s Most Wanted” took over the box office for a second straight week, handily defeating holdovers and two new big releases despite falling off a bit heavier than your usual kids’ flick (41.1%). Having grossed $120 million domestically so far, the film is certainly playing up to expectations, currently performing in the vicinity of the previous installment. And it had better -- next week, the Pixar beast looms, with “Brave” taking both the family audience and a number of those 3D screens.
