'Dope' Is The Buzziest, Coolest, Dopest Film At Sundance
There is something genius about setting a coming-of-age comedy in 2014, but making the main characters obsessed with '90s hip-hop. You get the best of both worlds: the pop culture references, Bitcoin, iPhones and YouTube -- paired with the flyest '90s wardrobe a teenager could ask for, a soundtrack featuring NWA, Easy E, Snoop Dogg and, most important, the perfect flattop.
"Dope" is hands down one of the freshest films at this year's Sundance Film Festival -- written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa and starring soon-to-be huge Shameik Moore as Malcolm, an uber-nerd punk band singer growing up in a neighborhood called “The Bottoms” in Inglewood, California.
Gang violence is rampant, Malcolm gets picked on and his shoes are stolen regularly, but he is the perfect protagonist with his Wikipedia-like knowledge, impeccable sense of style and passion for getting into Harvard University. He’s the cool nerd.
Malcolm’s sidekicks, Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) and Jib (Tony Revolori), are equally dweeby and '90s obsessed, and none of them fit in where they are. They have a punk band and comb through vinyl at the record store. Their loyalty to Malcolm is essential in a film that becomes a series of unlucky events strung together like shoddy beads on a string -- you wait for everything to fall apart as they desperately pedal their bikes through the neighborhood trying to keep it all together.
With comparisons to "Superbad" and "Go," among other films, "Dope" has become Sundance's buzziest title, and with good reason: it's blisteringly funny and expertly made. Famuyiwa playfully twirls clichés, stereotypes and nostalgia around his finger like it's a game. The tongue-in-cheek tone surely serves to remind audiences not to take any of this too seriously. And yet, there are moments of poignancy where, in between laughs, you will find yourself rooting for this misfit crew like they are your youngest, most favorite siblings.
At the time of publishing, The Weinstein Company and Fox Searchlight are among the studios currently bidding to acquire the film for distribution. Whoever winds up with it, will have a winner on its hands. We can't wait to see it again.
Jason Segel Stuns As David Foster Wallace In 'The End Of The Tour'
It's early, but let's prep Jason Segel's Oscar campaign just to be safe. James Ponsoldt's "The End of the Tour," which premiered Friday at the Sundance Film Festival, is the start of something beautiful for Segel, who sheds his Apatowian routine to fill the iconic shoes of David Foster Wallace. Segel eases into a drawl that matches the author's hesitant lips, but this is no mere imitation: He channels every complicated facet of the Wallace's personality, introducing a sympathetic loner whose softness is often belied by a hardened confusion about the world he inhabits.
Buried beneath Wallace's fame is an insecurity that extends beyond unkempt hair and signature bandanas. Segel's performance is a master class in capturing layers of expression with one's eyes. That shines through in his interactions with Jesse Eisenberg, who portrays David Lipsky, the Rolling Stone journalist who spent five days with Wallace during his "Infinite Jest" book tour and forms the bedrock of the mini-biopic on display. No flattering reviews can prevent Wallace's skepticism about how he'll be portrayed in the unctuous but honest young writer's profile, but his wall comes down so easily that what resounds is a man who wants desperately to be liked in an authentic way. Wallace shirks every Gen X wunderkind label the public assigns to him, yet somehow he's paranoid Lipsky won't like him. Segel showcases a restlessness that bubbles beneath the writer's tender surfaces; it shatters his charm every so often, unwrapping a well-documented darkness.
"The End of the Tour" thrives because it doesn't ask to be about more than it is. Writers will take to the long conversations these men hold about inspiration and self-doubt and notoriety, but this is a movie for everyone who's ever pondered any of those things. Segel treats Wallace as something between a recluse and an everyman, and anyone who sees the film without having read Wallace's tomes may not even walk away with the presumptuous "genius" label that too many biographical films insist upon. There's some media commentary about the value of a splashy celebrity profile, but Segel doesn't position his character as the clichéd, highfalutin literary type many movies portray, as if to say that we can't truly know this god we've positioned among men. There's an intimacy to this story, and that's why the talky road-trip film is such an achievement.
Donald Margulies' script -- compiled in part from the transcript of Wallace and Lipsky's time together -- is largely responsible for that intimacy, but it's Segel whose magnetism is most alluring. The simplest moments reveal the deepest psychology, like a stop at a convenience store where Lipsky informs a still-shy Wallace at the cash register that their time together is covered by Rolling Stone's expense account. (Cue an abundance of Jann Wenner jokes.) There's a flash of hesitation before Segel rushes back to the aisles to pile more junk food onto the counter. Juxtapose that warmth with an anger that appears when Wallace thinks anyone is talking about him behind his back or doubting his character, as when he's convinced Lipsky is hitting on an ex-girlfriend who joins them for a leg of the tour. Segel eyes them from across the room and we see his mood shift before he can even jump up to confront Lipsky. Here, folks, is an actor who has grasped his character and wants you to as well.
The beauty of "The End of the Tour" comes in the ultimate compassion that flows between the two men. This is a rare movie that actually seems to capture more of its subject than the written word has, and that is chiefly thanks to Segel's performance. You won't want for "Dracula's Lament" one bit with this new iteration of his career.
HBO Is Auctioning Off Richard Harrow's Mask From 'Boardwalk Empire'

'Full House' Cast Reunites And Sings The Theme Song
Everywhere you look, everywhere you go, the "Full House" cast is reuniting. The gang previously got together last July to celebrate Dave Coulier's wedding, and reunited again on Saturday night to celebrate show creator Jeff Franklin's birthday.
Lori Loughlin, best known as Aunt Becky, posted photos of herself with her former TV family on Instagram early Sunday. "It's looking like a Full House kinda night," Loughlin wrote along with a photo of herself with Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin, who played D.J. and Stephanie Tanner, respectively.

But the gang didn't just gather to take pictures -- they also sang the "Full House" theme song. Andrea Barber, who played Kimmy Gibbler, captured the moment that will bring joy to your nostalgic '90s heart:
Only for you, Jeff Franklin. Only for you. Happy Birthday. #everywhereyoulook #whatsmyline? #onlyknewthechorus #cantgetthisdamnsongouttamyhead @candacecbure @loriloughlin @bobsaget @johnstamos *Edited: Who has a better, full version of this?? I saw all those iPhones out there pointed at us!!

'Mortdecai' Is One Of Johnny Depp's Worst Flops Ever
It's only January and 2015 isn't looking good for Johnny Depp. His latest comedy, "Mortdecai," has been called possibly the worst movie of 2015, and now it's the actor's biggest flop in years.
The comedy, which cost $60 million to make, was expected to gross around $10 million this weekend, but has earned a mere $4.1 million since its release on Friday. (Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper" dominated the box office again, earning $64.4 million this weekend.) That makes the film Depp's worst wide release opening since 1999's "The Astronaut's Wife."
But that's not all. "Mortdecai," which currently has a 12-percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, is also Depp's worst opening for a film debuting on more than 2,500 screens. To put that into perspective, "The Rum Diary," "Blow" and "The Ninth Gate" all opened on fewer screens than "Mortdecai" and still had higher debut frames.
Depp has gone from big box office attraction to major flop over the last several years. The actor's biggest opening weekend ever was with 2006's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," which earned $135.6 million. But it was after the fourth "Pirates" installment, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," that things started going south for Depp. Here's a look at his box office decline since 2011:

'American Sniper' Dominates The Weekend Box Office Again
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "American Sniper" hit the mark with moviegoers again.
The military drama starring Bradley Cooper as Navy SEAL marksman Chris Kyle topped the box office for a second weekend in a row with $64.4 million in first place, according to studio estimates Sunday. "American Sniper" is up for six Academy Awards, including best picture and best actor for Cooper. The total haul for the Warner Bros. film now stands at $200.1 million. "American Sniper" also earned an additional $17.6 million in 16 international territories, including Australia, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
"We've never quite seen anything like this at this time of year," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at box-office tracker Rentrak. "'American Sniper' is helping to propel the box office, which is already 9.3 percent ahead of the same time last year."
The film, directed by Clint Eastwood, already broke box-office records when it expanded to wide release last weekend, easily surpassing "Avatar" to become the biggest January opening for a movie and immediately becoming the top grosser among best-picture Oscar nominees.
In a distant second place, the saucy Universal thriller "The Boy Next Door" featuring Jennifer Lopez as a teacher who engages in an affair with a younger man played by Ryan Guzman, debuted with $15 million.
The weekend's other major new releases weren't even in the neighborhood of "The Boy Next Door."
The animated fantasy "Strange Magic" from Luscasfilm and Disney flopped in seventh place with $5.5 million.
Lionsgate's Johnny Depp dud "Mortdecai" tanked in ninth place with $4.1 million. The eccentric heist comedy, which also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, marks another box-office bomb for Depp, following the leading man's disappointing "Transcendence," ''The Lone Ranger," ''Dark Shadows" and "The Rum Diary."
"I think he chooses projects that appeal to him," Dergarabedian said. "I've always appreciated Johnny Depp for marching to the beat of his own drum, but he still needs to get audiences in the door. Sometimes, if you go too far afield, that's reflected in the numbers."
Overseas, "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" dominated the international box office with $54.2 million. The final installment of the Middle-earth saga debuted in China with $49.5 million.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1. "American Sniper," $64.4 million ($17.6 million international).
2. "The Boy Next Door," $15 million ($560,000 international).
3. "Paddington," $12.4 million ($4.3 million international).
4. "The Wedding Ringer," $11.6 million ($1.1 million international).
5. "Taken 3," $7.6 million ($26.3 million international).
6. "The Imitation Game," $7.1 million ($4.6 million international).
7. "Strange Magic" $5.5 million.

9. "Mortdecai," $4.1 million ($5.2 million international).

Guy Performs Voice Impressions Of 100 Cartoon And Film Characters In One Rapid-Fire Take
To celebrate the milestone of reaching 100,000 subscribers on YouTube, voice artist Brian Hull recently treated his fans to a jaw-dropping feat. He performed impressions of 100 cartoon and film characters, as well as celebrities -- in just one take.
It took Hull 3 minutes and 42 seconds to imitate the voices of Minnie Mouse, Kermit the Frog, Winnie the Pooh, Napoleon Dynamite, Sean Connery and dozens of others.
We didn’t think Hull could top his viral performance last year of Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go” as 21 different Disney and Pixar characters.
It seems we were wrong about that.
Watch Hull’s 100 impressions marathon in the video above.
'Saturday Night Live' Reveals Who's Really Behind Deflategate In Cold Open
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots' "deflategate" press conference on Thursday was pretty funny on its own, but the "Saturday Night Live" take on the football scandal was even more ridiculous.
The "SNL" cold open was a parody of an "Inside The NFL" segment, in which Patriots coach Bill Belichick quickly denied any knowledge of altered footballs from the AFC championship game before throwing quarterback Tom Brady "under the bus."
"I love him like a son, just more of an estranged son that I wouldn't trust around footballs," Belichick (played by Beck Bennett) told the reporters.
Brady (portrayed by Taran Killam) played dumb at the conference, saying that any knowledge about the footballs is "above his pay grade."
"Look, all I know is that a football is a pigskin, so I just assumed that the air in the football is how much air was inside the pig when it died," he said.
The sketch ultimately revealed the truth behind the alleged cheating scandal when Patriots "assistant equipment co-manager" Dougie Spoons took the stage. Watch the full clip above.
Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Rock Matching Outfits To The 2015 BET Honors
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have made it clear they love to dress alike, whether they're on the streets of Brooklyn in the same casual attire or front row at a fashion show in matching cleavage-baring ensembles. The couple took its matchy-matchy tendencies to the 2015 BET Honors on Saturday, where the two wore all-black Balmain outfits. Kardashian opted for a demure gown with small cut-outs, while West wore a tailored suit. And of course, they each had unamused facial expressions:
Kardashian took to Instagram to congratulate her husband, who took home the Visionary Award at the BET Honors ceremony, which airs Feb. 23.
"Kanye & I tonight at the BET Honors! My baby received the visionary award!!!! #BothWearingBalmain," the 34-year-old reality star wrote alongside the photo:
