Scary Movie 5

Weekend Box Office Report: ’42′ is Number One

Warner Bros.

Well, it looks like we have an answer to the question of whether or not audiences are interested in a historical, racially charged baseball movie. Brian Helgeland's '42' opened at the top of the box office this weekend, instantly breaking the record for biggest opening for a baseball movie. Sure, it's a minor record to break, but a record is a record.

‘Scary Movie 5′ Review

Scary Movie 5 review
Dimension Films

My disdain of the 'Scary Movie' franchise came early. I distinctly recall seeing the 'Scary Movie 2' poster, which featured Kathleen Robertson wearing a t-shirt that says "I See Dead People." This isn't a joke. It's just a reference. It isn't clever, it isn't witty - it's just saying a thing from another movie. It's not funny.

Almost 10 years later, 'Scary Movie 5' still suffers from this debilitating problem. There is absolutely nothing funny about going 'Inception'-style into Christian Grey's S&M room and having Mike Tyson show up. Yet, if you are somehow able to ignore the lowest common denominator pop culture appearances (I hesitate to even call them jokes) there are a great number of truly amusing gags and examples of rapid fire dialogue zings. Put bluntly: when the film is freed from the shackles of its referencing mandate, there's some good, dopey humor in here. Much to my surprise, I laughed out loud a good half-dozen times.

New ‘Scary Movie 5′ Trailer Finally Brings the ‘Mama’ and ‘Evil Dead’ Spoofs

Scary Movie 5 Trailer
Dimension

Sure looks like someone did some reshoots. The last ‘Scary Movie 5’ trailer we saw was a predictable montage of limp ‘Paranormal Activity’ and ‘Black Swan’ gags, but this new one has sprinkled in a good amount of ‘Mama’ moments, indicating that the production clearly felt obligated to be a little more current and spoof a movie that’s actually relevant right now.

The result, however, is still akin to being smashed in the groin several times (which this movie would find hilarious, of course). Feel the pain after the break.

‘Scary Movie 5′ Trailer: ‘Paranormal Activity’ With a Little More Charlie Sheen

Scary Movie 5 Trailer
Dimension

It's been seven years since the 'Scary Movie' franchise reared its head, which begs the immediate question of "Does anyone even care about this series anymore?" To put it in perspective, the chief subjects of parody in 'Scary Movie 4' were 'Saw' and 'War of the Worlds,' films that have all but vanished from the public consciousness. Well, the new trailer for 'Scary Movie 5' has arrived and the subjects of mockery are at least a little more fresh including 'Paranormal Activity,' 'Inception' and Lindsay Lohan's career.

‘Scary Movie 5′ Casts Mike Tyson

The 'Scary Movie' franchise is no stranger to bizarre stunt casting (remember Shaquille O'Neal and Dr. Phil in part four?) and retired boxer/full-time psychopath Mike Tyson is no stranger to being stunt cast, so it makes perfect sense that he's just been cast in 'Scary Movie 5.'

Lindsay Lohan Arrested (Again) — Another Ploy to Get Out of ‘Scary Movie 5′?

Lindsay Lohan claimed she's a newly reformed actress ready to make good on her commitments, but old habits are hard to break. Since filming began on 'Scary Movie 5,' which she's set to appear in with fellow "reformed" mess Charlie Sheen, she "missed every meeting" and skipped out on wardrobe fittings in an attempt to get out of the film. Not to mention she was found unconscious while filming 'Liz & Dick' and got in a serious car accident, which also violated the insurance policy she signed with Lifetime for the flick. Now she's getting into even more shenanigans as just this morning she was arrested for hitting a man with her porsche in New York City. What do you think? Is this yet another attempt to get herself fired from 'Scary Movie 5'?

Except Lindsay Lohan just can't stop being Lindsay Lohan and the actress, despite trying to be on her best behavior, disappeared, skipped rehearsals, missed her flight to the film's set and tried to bail on the film by claiming "walking pneumonia." Oh Lindsay.

The collection of life choices known as Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan are two actors that people just love to hate, and so with that in mind, the creatives behind 'Scary Movie 5' have promised to off the pair in the opening sequence for your viewing pleasure.
