The Memorial Day weekend brought with it the third Marvel superhero movie of 2014 and like 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' opened to over $90 million at the box office. Sure, people online keep on wondering if audiences are getting tired of comic book films, but the box office keeps on saying otherwise.
‘Blended’ - the latest movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore - isn’t a horrifically bad movie. It’s actually even a little better than what you’d expect from Adam Sandler these days – but I did find it terribly depressing to watch.
Oftentimes when stars film new features in exotic locations, they'll spend the majority of their press tour talking about how much the new place changed them and their perspectives and their very souls. That didn't happen to Adam Sandler. The 'Blended' star hit 'The Late Show' last night, and although he quite admirably tried to convince host David Letterman that filming his new comedy with Drew Barrymore in Africa really did change him, it's fairly obvious from the get-go that Sandler's still up to his old tricks. This time, however, they involve animals lurking in the background.
'The Wedding Singer' came out in 1998, so it's possible that people who went on a date to see the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore movie in theaters could have teenagers now. That's reflected in the trailer for their third outing together as the duo both play single parents who go on the same family vacation to Africa.
