Dawn of the Planet Of the Apes
Well, it looks like we have our second repeat of the #1 position of this year. Before now, Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” was the only film of 2014 to stay at the #1 box office position for two weeks in a row. But now Matt Reeves’ “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” has achieved the same distinction. Falling only 50% (a great hold for a tentpole), the film was still able to gross $36 million in its second week of release to retain the box-office top spot. The movie is now at $138 million domestically, and reaching $200 million at home seems like a foregone conclusion. Pundits are already hypothesizing that the film will hit around over $600 million worldwide, which is a strong sign for the life of this franchise. But the box-office is still ailing domestically overall, down some 45% from 2013.

Sex Tape
As far as weird on-screen sexual scenarios go, Cameron Diaz has had her fair share. After all, she is the only actress in the history of the medium to have styled her hair with male ejaculate ("There's Something About Mary"), been involved in some kind of weird old timey abortion ("Gangs of New York") and, well, f*cked a car ("The Counselor"). So it's not much of a surprise that she'd be involved in a movie like "Sex Tape," a ribald comedy about a suburban couple (Jason Segel as her husband) who make a homemade porno and then promptly lose it -- leading to a madcap scramble to retrieve the video, maintain their privacy, and continue a life of relative upper middle class normalcy. What is surprising, however, is how bland "Sex Tape" is. On the scale of on-screen Cameron Diaz sexual outrageousness, it's pretty tepid.

Sex Tape
Audience taste can be ever changing and fickle—what was the hot flavor last year, can be sour the next time around. Just ask Melissa McCarthy, who brought "Tammy" to the July 4th weekend, delivering her usual fare of outlandish, boorish humor, to the collective shrug of the moviegoing public. So you have to wonder what ticket buyers will do with "Sex Tape."

Sex Tape
You can't make a sex tape without getting naked, and so it would follow that you can't make a movie called "Sex Tape" without getting naked either, and Cameron Diaz promises that both she and co-star Jason Segel take it off (and probably get it on) in the comedy. "It's a first for me. But Jason gets naked, too. It's just a part of the role. So I did it. I mean you see everything," she told Esquire.

Sex Tape
A few years ago, Jason Segel put it all out there, going full frontal in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," and as he tells Vanity Fair, his mother wasn't ready for it. "She cried," he said, adding that sent an email to the rest of the family saying, “I would like to inform you all that Jason has chosen to do full-frontal nudity, however, it is not gratuitous and is essential to the plot.” Whether or not we'll get Full Segel in "Sex Tape" remains to be seen, but he's once again stepping into a raunchy comedy.

Sex Tape
Did you care for Sony’s “Bad Teacher”? Would you want to see a sequel? The movie was just okay, right? But before you forget, that R-rated comedy grossed $216 million worldwide. You might not think those are spectacular numbers, but it is higher than “Knocked-Up” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” two mid/late aughts pictures that were heralded for making the R-rated comedy bankable again.

Sausage Party, Rogen, Rudd, McBride
For all the “brave” or “risky” movie projects Annapurna Pictures backs, this one might be their biggest dare so far. When was the last time there was an R-rated animated film in wide-release theaters for adults? Aside from the Ralph Bakshi films from the 1970s, the “Heavy Metal" movie in the 1980s and after 1999's "South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut," the pickins are pretty slim (and we're talking theatrical, not DVD releases). Animated films are mostly the domain of kids movies, but Annapurna does have quite the project in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s “Sausage Party.”

Sex Tape
The last time we saw Jason Segel naked, he was being dumped in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," but in "Sex Tape," he's getting down and dirty with Cameron Diaz. And he's even looking a bit fitter doing it. "I took heat for 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall,' where I was completely nude. But different characters require different body types," he told US Weekly about dropping weight for the movie. "It is R-rated, and I'm not in shape for no reason."

This summer the "Bad Teacher" team of director Jake Kasdan and stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are back, but this time for something a bit hotter under the collar. It's "Sex Tape," and you probably don't even need to ask what it's about. Read More »
