Opening at 2,735 theaters, One Direction: This is Us is the latest in a string of 3D concert movies that began with 2008's Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, which the highest opening yet for the genre ($31.1 million) and went on to close with $65.3 million. The following year, Michael Jackson's This Is Itwas even bigger ($72.1 million), while 2011's Justin Bieber: Never Say Never holds the record with $73 million.
The genre has a number of misses lately as well, though.Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience earned just $19.2 million, while last Summer's Katy Perry: Part of Me did only a bit better ($25.3 million). With its mix of concert footage and behind-the-scenes tour video, One Direction appears to be most-similar to the Justin Bieberand Katy Perry flicks.
Recognizing how rabid the band's young female fanbase is, Sony's targeted marketing effort has focused almost exclusively on driving awareness among "Directioners." This strategy seems to have paid off: Fandango is reporting 68 percent of Thursday ticket sales are for One Direction: This is Us, with 98 percent of those sales going to female audience members. This data confirms that One Direction will open higher than Katy Perry ($10.2 million in its first four days), though it's hard to imagine that it has enough buzz to come close to Justin Bieber($32 million four-day). Sony is currently expecting an opening in the mid-to-high teen millions, which should be enough to beat The Butler.
Opening at 2,130 theaters, Ethan Hawke/Selena Gomez thriller Getaway is the final Dark Castle Entertainment movie being released by Warner Bros. under a deal that ended last year. The movie has received a light marketing effort, and the focus has been entirely on the run-of-the-mill car chases (at the expense of story and character). This may simply be because the product isn't all that marketable: as of Thursday afternoon, it had 55 reviews up on Rotten Tomatoes, and not a single one was fresh.
Dark Castle's Bullet to the Head—also a gritty revenge movie—opened to just $4.55 million in February, which remains one of the worst debuts of the year. With barely any marketing and atrocious reviews, it wouldn't be surprising if Getaway wound up around the same level.
British thriller Closed Circuit opens at 870 theaters this weekend, and could have a tough time reaching the Top 10. This is the latest European thriller that Focus Features is releasing over Labor Day weekend: past outings include The American ($35.6 million), The Constant Gardener ($33.6 million) and The Debt ($31.2 million). Those movies all had more aggressive marketing, much wider releases, and better reviews.
Closed Circuit got a jump on the weekend with a Wednesday debut, though it wound up in 15th place with just $248,704. If it follows the same pattern as the previously mentioned movies, it will earn less than $4 million through Monday.
A handful of other movies are receiving significant releases or expansions. Targeting Hispanic audiences, comedy/drama Instructions Not Included opens at 347 theaters. After a week in limited release, The Grandmaster expands nationwide in to 749 theaters. Finally, teen romance The Spectacular Now reaches 385 venues after earning $2.2 million in limited release. All three movies could earn around $1 million for the four-day weekend.
Four-Day Forecast (August 30-Sept. 2)
1. One Direction - $20.6 million
2. The Butler - $15.1 million (-9%)
3. We're the Millers - $13.2 million (+1%)
4. Planes - $9.4 million (+10%)
5. The World's End - $7.1 million (-19%)
-. Getaway - $5.7 million
-. Closed Circuit - $2.9 million ($3.4 million six-day)
Bar for Success
If One Direction: This is Us can get to $20 million by Monday, it's a huge win for Sony. Playing in over 2,000 theaters, Getaway ought to be close to $10 million, while Closed Circuit would be fine with a six-day start around $5 million.
box office im sad 1d wont beat mileys opening numbers/record :(
A&E cancels 'The Glades' after a cliffhanger: How could it have ended?
A&E has canceled "The Glades"following a four-season run. The crime drama had its season finale on Monday (Aug. 26), giving fans a cliffhanger ending that will now remain unresolved.
Just days after the show enjoyed its best ratings of the season -- 3.4 million viewers watched the finale -- and only one day after the network announced a renewal for another show,"Longmire," the "Glades" cancellation comes as something of a surprise.
Why was "The Glades" canceled? As of now, it's a mystery on which no one connected to the show has an immediate comment.
After its premiere in 2010, "The Glades" became the first scripted drama series to receive a renewal from A&E. The show, created by Clifton Campbell, is the story of an ex-Chicago cop named Jim (Matt Passmore) who takes a job in the swampy, sweaty land of Florida. Over the four seasons, a romance developed at the center of the story between Jim and Callie (Kiele Sanchez), a medical student.
The two characters were supposed to get married in the Season 4 finale, but Jim didn't quite make it to the wedding. While readying his gift (a house), an unidentified person shot Jim in the chest, leaving him bleeding on the floor.
So what happens next? Officially, we may never know. Here are, however, some possible endings:
1. It turns out that Callie's criminally inclined ex somehow showed up to pull the trigger. Following a TV-quick recuperation (made faster by Jim leaving the hospital against doctor's -- and Callie's -- orders), Jim hunts down his would-be killer. The wedding happens in the spontaneous happiness that follows.
2. The killer remains a mystery for many episodes (perhaps an entire season, depending on how "The Glades" would want to play this). Meanwhile, Jim and Callie call a do-over on the wedding. For the season finale, a murderous person who turns out to be related to a past case is found and brought to justice.
3. It was all a dream. Jim wakes up (unhurt) and realizes he's not ready to commit to marriage. Many episodes deal with a left-at-the-altar scenario before these two realize they were meant for each other and elope.
4. The "shooter" is a friend of Jim's, the "blood" is paint, and all of this is the equivalent of a really-late bachelor party. Callie is kind of mad when her fiance is tardy and blood-stained, but they reconcile and have a lovely evening.
5. Jim's dead. The series ends on a surprisingly down note.
Which ending could it have been? You choose -- or write your own as a comment!
There are some mighty upset fans on various message boards over this. I'm just happy Longmire is coming back.
BTW, I can haz A&E tag?
The premium cable network has made a pilot production commitment for a drama adaptation of the 1973 Michael Crichton sci-fi movie of the same name.
In another example of the premium cable network buying a project from an outside studio, HBO has made a pilot production commitment for a Westworld adaptation from Warner Bros. TV. The drama effort, inspired by Michael Crichton's 1973 film of the same name, is being billed as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.
Abrams will executive produce alongside veteran producer Jerry Weintraub and Bad Robot's Bryan Burk, with Person of Interest's Jonathan Nolan attached to co-write, EP and direct the pilot. Lisa Joy will join him as a co-writer and EP, while Kathy Lingg and Athena Wickham are on board as a co-executive producer and a producer, respectively. The drama is being produced by Bad Robot Productions, Jerry Weintraub Productions and Kilter Films in association with Warner Bros.
The move marks the first HBO project for Bad Robot, the prolific TV and film shingle behind such series as NBC's Revolution, CBS' Person of Interest and newcomers Almost Human (Fox) and Believe (NBC). For the network, which has a history of owning the bulk of its series, it follows recent outside orders for Fox 21's Open from Ryan Murphy and Warner Bros. TV's The Leftovers from Damon Lindelof.
Chandler Massey on DAYS Exit: "I'm Actually Glad Things Went Down The Way They Did!"
Chandler filmed his final scenes as Will Horton on Friday, Aug. 23 — only he didn't know they were his last until he was summoned at the end of his work day to the office of Greg Meng, the soap's co-executive producer. During this meeting, Meng informed Massey, who had been planning to depart the NBC soap when his contract expired in December, that he would have to leave immediately because a replacement had already been hired. Massey exited the studio sans fanfare — no farewell party, no goodbyes, no nothing — and sources close to the young actor say he was devastated and in tears. His last episode will air on or around Dec. 31.
Days issued a statement calling Massey's exit "a mutual decision," which isn't exactly true. Yes, Massey did announce his plans to quit Days at the Daytime Emmys last June. But my spies tell me the Days chiefs were blindsided by his news and that they decided to blindside him back. Was Massey fired? Technically, yes, since he will not be paid for the final 13 weeks of his contract.
TV Guide spoke with Massey, who has had a few days to deal with the news and is clearly taking the high road.
"I'm actually glad things went down the way they did," Massey tells us. "I appreciate the producers for letting me out of my deal early because I can now pursue other opportunities I couldn't under contract. And, really, I want what's best for the show and the character. I'm honored to have played Will's coming-out story, and really proud of the Will and Sonny romance. It's important that they pass the torch to another actor and continue the story."
What will he miss most? "The money!" cracks Massey, who adds that he's okay with not getting a goodbye party. "Even if I'd left the way I thought I would, a party was never on the table. I don't like that sort of thing. I never want any fuss. But I'm going to miss everyone like crazy. I had so many incredible mentors at the show and made so many great friends."
Massey is open to more acting roles — but he's determined to get back to his courses at UCLA, which were put on hold when he won the Days gig in 2009. His plans include becoming fluent in Mandarin Chinese. "Back in eighth grade, I'd seen nothing but small-town Georgia when I left the U.S. for the first time and went to Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mainland China," he says. "I've been fascinated with that culture ever since and, with the way the global economy is going, it's a really important language to learn. And who knows? Maybe they'll put me in the movies over there. I can be like the token white guy. All I have to do is learn kung fu!"
A spokesperson for THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS has confirmed exclusively to Soaps In Depth that Eileen Davidson will be making a visit to Genoa City later this fall!
She'll be appearing as Ashley for three episodes in late October.
No other details are available at this time.
Ever since General Hospital stars Kirsten Storms and Brandon Barash told PEOPLE they were expecting their first child together – a girl! – and that they'd secretly gotten married in June, they've been overwhelmed with the positive well wishes from fans.
Now, the couple has decided to share the story of their clandestine nuptials, as well as a photo from their magical day. Barash, a gifted raconteur, tells the story in his own words of how the couple assumed new monikers – Mom and Dad, and Husband and Wife – in the span of a week:
We had just left our first baby doctor's appointment, and were riding high. Even though our baby was more in the shape of a pancake with a heartbeat, we were quite jolly. My dad was playing in the World Series of Poker at the time, a lifelong dream, so he and my stepmom were in Vegas for the weekend.
On our walk home – yes, we actually walked in L.A. – we received a text from them that he had been knocked out in the first 45 minutes. He was crushed. Kirsten and I looked at each other and said in unison (a common occurrence with us), "Wanna go to Vegas and get married?!" That was all we needed.
We called our respective parental units and immediate family and planned an impromptu rendezvous for the weekend at Caesar's Palace. The universe conspired with us and offered us no resistance.
By the following afternoon, Saturday, I had proposed to Kirsten with a blue raspberry Ring Pop in hand at a gas station in Wrightwood, Calif., and we had planned our wedding ceremony with the team at Caesar's. To say they went above and beyond would be a severe understatement. They're always closed on Sundays but their coordinator offered to open just for us the next day, and we took her up on it. She gave us our pick of chapels, officiants (none of which were donning Elvis duds or personas), live piano music ... we chose Led Zeppelin, flowers, etc. It was nothing short of a dream wedding.
There were about 10 of us in a chapel that seated 200 comfortably, and it was perfect. All I remember was my face feeling like Niagara Falls, stomping on the glass – the one religious element he chose to include – and Zeppelin's "Over the Hills and Far Away" playing as we walked down the aisle. Perfection.
After the ceremony, we shared an impeccable meal with our loved ones at Il Mulino, our favorite restaurant, and spent the night playing roulette. Again, we felt the universe on our sides as we hit the numbers of Lil B's due date and our newly established wedding anniversary repeatedly on the roulette table. It was magic, and we wouldn't have had it any other way.
We kept it under wraps for so long by only telling those close to us. Luckily (almost) everyone stayed tight-lipped – yet another beckoning from fate. As I said before, given all of the possible and spontaneous complications with early pregnancy, we wanted to wait until we were out of the proverbial woods.
One more thing ...
As we were cleaning out our apartment, we found a soap magazine from 2009 with us on the cover and a caption reading, "Will Johnny and Maxie sleep together?" We got a laugh. Johnny and Maxie didn't do the deed, but Brandon and Kirsten picked up where they left off and ... Got. It. Done.
Daytime Confidential is reporting that "GENERAL HOSPITAL breakdown writer Jean Passanante will co-head write THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS with Shelly Altman."
For nearly three decades Y&R was the one daytime soap opera that seemed immune from the constant backstage upheaval with rotating writers and producers that chipped away at the foundations of so many beloved shows. The past decade has not been kind to the legacy of the #1 Daytime Drama.
Melanie dropped the charges against Adam on Monday's episode which means Chambers' stint on Y&R is over. Her last airdate was August 26th.
DAYS's Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe), who will be making a quick visit to Salem at some point in the months ahead, is already busy filming a prime-time show.
"Good morning! It's an early but beautiful day here on set for 2 Broke Girls...." she tweeted earlier today.
As General Hospital fans around the country are watching the demise of Connie Falconeri, it marks the end of the line for Kelly Sullivan, who for two years impressed the television audience with her portrayal of Kate Howard/Connie Falconeri in the DID storyline and as a love interest for Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and much more!
As viewers on the west coast just watched Connie take her last breath, Sullivan took to Twitter to say: “RIP Connie. It was a great two years! Thank you for your love and support, it means so much. Long live GH!”
The other half of DAYS super couple WilSon, Freddie Smith (Sonny) shared his thoughts over the weekend via Twitter on the departure of his long-time scene partner, Chandler Massey (Will) who finished his last tape day on Friday.
Freddie related to his fans and followers: “I feel so lucky I got to work with @ChandlerMassey these past two years. It was an incredible time. I wish you all the best. You deserve it!”
Congratulations are in order for THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Jacob Young (Rick) and wife Christen, who welcomed their second child yesterday. Molly Lynn was born early Wednesday, August 28, and weighed six pounds, 11 ounces.
The whole family is doing well, including their four year old son, Luke. Best wishes to them all!
Jeffrey Vincent Parise has joined the cast of GENERAL HOSPITAL as Carlos, according to ACCESS HOLLYWOOD.
Carlos is a man from Sabrina’s (Teresa Castillo) past, who shows up in town just as things are going so well for the nurse and her boyfriend, Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson).
His ties extend beyond his connection to Sabrina and into the murky waters of the Port Charles underworld, ACCESS revealed.
Parise shot his first scenes on August 27th and will make his GH debut as Carlos in mid-September.
He has appeared in primetime shows like CUPID, VERONICA MARS and CASTLE, as well as in daytime soap opera DAYS OF OUR LIVES.
Fan favorite actress Maree Cheatham has been cast to play the grandmother of Jaime King's Lemon Breeland in an upcoming episode of HART OF DIXIE, according to E!
Grandma Bettie Breeland "ends up paying her granddaughter a visit to help preserve the Breeland name."
Daytime soap opera fans know Cheatham for her roles as Marie Horton in DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Stephanie Wyatt on SEARCH FOR TOMORROW and Charlene Simpson in GENERAL HOSPITAL. She also appeared in PASSIONS and PORT CHARLES. Fans of primetime serials will remember her appearances in KNOTS LANDING, GCB, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and THE WEST WING.
Daytime or primetime, comedy or drama, Cheatham always entertains. She is currently starring as Nona in Nickelodeon's SAM & CAT.
It’s going to be a veritable who’s who of Genoa City when "Young and the Restless" characters past and present gather for Katherine Chancellor’s memorial service, airing on Sept. 3 and 4.
The late, great Jeanne Cooper, who played the soap's matriarch for nearly 40 years, passed away in May, but the show took a few months to write her character's death into the story line in order to do it justice.
“These episodes are definitely for the longtime viewers,” Peter Bergman, who plays Jack Abbott, told TODAY.com. “Nothing’s more real than watching Jess Walton — who plays Kay's longtime nemesis, Jill — at Katherine’s funeral. It’s palpable. You can feel the emotion in the air when she steps to the podium.”
Cooper’s real-life son, Corbin Bernsen of "Psych," reprises his role as Father Todd, who will officiate Kay’s service.
Other familiar faces are returning for the memorial, including Christine (Lauralee Bell), Danny (Michael Damian), Nina (Tricia Cast), Amber (Adrienne Frantz) and Brock (Beau Kayser).
“The episodes are deeply powerful,” Bergman teased. “Tricia Cast is a wonderful actress; the audience always loves seeing her come back. Lauralee Bell looks wonderful and there is a terrific surprise with her character. Michael Damian sings a song, and it would not have been the same without Beau Kayser, a sweet, sweet man who lost a longtime friend. These are great shows for 'Y&R' purists.”
In a clip from the memorial episodes that CBS is sharing exclusively with TODAY.com, Jack and his brother Billy (played by Billy Miller) take a moment to privately and fondly recall their late father, John, and his long friendship with Katherine. (Kudos to "Y&R" scribes for referencing John and Katherine's skinny-dipping exploits from the duo's younger days!)
Looks like both of Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) parents are coming to Salem for a visit!
A show spokesperson for Days of our Lives had told Soap Opera Digest that fan favorite Charles Shaughnessy (Shane Donovan) will return to the NBC soap, and air along with the already returning Patsy Pease (Kimberly) for November sweeps!
Oh boy! What trouble does Theresa get herself into now that brings Shane and Kimberly into the story? Or, is it just a nice visit from mom and dad?
Charles Shaughnessy last appeared on DAYS in May of 2012, and has been open to returning to play one of the most beloved characters in the history of the NBC soap opera.
Last night, in a ceremony hosted by Michelle Visage and James St. James at Hollywood’s Bardot, LOGO’s beloved indie dark comedy web series EastSiders, starring former As the World Turns Van Hansis (Thom) and the talented Kit Williamson (Cal), won the honored with the award for Best Web Series- Drama from LA Weekly.
The crowded category included gay favorites: The Outs and Hunting Season, H+ (from producer Bryan Singer), Blue (starring Julia Styles), Halo 4 (from Machinima), and The Vault. EastSiders writer, director, and star Kit Williamson is also the star of the romantic comedy web series Hipsterhood, which won the award for Best Web Series - Comedy.
Kit Williamson related on his shows victory, “I think it’s amazing that a publication like The LA Weekly is taking notice of new media. It’s an honor to be listed alongside such great content creators and I’m grateful to everyone who voted for us. It’s also very exciting to see three gay web series nominated for best web drama, rather than being isolated into their own category. I think it’s a testament to LGBT content creators being at the vanguard of the medium.”
The Young and the Restless Eva Marcille (ex-Tyra Hamilton) has some good news: She and her husband, songwriter Kevin McCall, are expecting their first child! The couple broke the news to BET first, where the actress gave an exclusive interview.
“Being able to bring a life into the world is every woman’s dream but for me it’s more than just a dream it is a magical, mystical journey which I get to share with this amazing man,” the five-months pregnant star shares. “Kevin is the only man who I would share this moment in life with.”
As first noted on the Friday, August 16 episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, several of Katherine Chancellor’s (Jeanne Cooper) friends and family received postcards informing them to be at the grand dames home on that particular date and at “8:00pm sharp.” Following news of when the show will honor the life of Katherine on screen, the soap unveiled a website dedicated to the character that includes a gallery that breaks down the postcards each of her friends and family received, some of which were sent before Katherine decided to have people gather at her home. The postcards were written by the writers of the show, of course.

Note: On the postcard written to Cane, Lily and their Twins from Machu Picchu, Lily’s name is spelled with two “L’s” instead of just one.

HAPPY THREE DAY WEEKEND, ONTD! :-) And another school year begins....
Slipstream‘s power sounds appropriately weird and mutant-y when you read the official description: he can “generate a warp portal in the fabric of space and ride the resultant warp-wave… Slipstream could use this ability to travel to virtually any point on Earth at faster-than-light speed, and can ferry others through the portal with him.” Unfortunately, this translates to “surfboard-based teleportation,” which is less useful and not at all cool. Slipstream can teleport, but only when he’s on his little surfboard and making an appropriate surfing-like pose, meaning he has to carry along an official X-Men boogie board with him wherever he goes if we wants to catch those waves, dude. It’s ridiculous that the Silver Surfer hasn’t beaten him to death.
3) Stacy X
Here’s a clue for all aspiring X-Men out there. Does your code name have an X in it? Then you are trying way too hard. An X-Man has an X in his or her name is certain to be trying to be cool, and Stacy X, whose hilariously “extreme” upbringing included her being part of a mutant brothel. This was actually fortuitous, since her mutant power was using pheromones to make people have orgasms (or vomit, or other things) — well, that and having snake-skin. Stacy X is clearly someone’s attempt to make the X-Men seem more adult and edgy by including a character who once had sex for money. Doubt me? Here’s what she did upon leaving the X-Mansion: “She left behind for [Archangel] a video of herself jumping rope naked, stating that she didn't want to stay around them and taunting him that he missed the chance to have had someone as sexy as herself as a girlfriend.”
Jubilee’s mutant power is to shoot fireworks. These can be used as offensive weapons, in the same way regular fireworks can be used as offensive weapons, and that if you light one and throw it at somebody and it hits them it’ll hurt. But when your team is full of dudes with metal claws, guys who can fire concussive blasts from their eyes, or control people’s minds, the girl who’s effectively carrying a bunch of bottle rockets around with her isn’t going to be of much use. That’s probably why Jubilee has gone through more uniform and codename changes than Jean Grey has had resurrections, because 20 years later still nobody has figured out what to do with her.
There have been a few characters in pop culture who have super-powered tattoos; it should be no surprise that the X-Men have one, too. But Ink is unique among these characters in that 1) he has no powers, because there’s another mutant named Leon whose powers is giving power-bestowing tattoos and Ink is just a moron; 2) Ink has, literally, seven tattoos, when he could be covered in them and become the most power dude on the planet; and 3) his tattoos are really fucking ridiculous. A caduceus on his hand lets him heal people, while a tattoo that vaguely resembles Colossus’ metal skin gives him super-strength, which is complete nonsense. If the tattoo designs can be that vague, then he could get the same powers with tribal armbands, a tramp stamp or a Tasmanian Devil. For the record, I have no idea why he's punching that maid.
Beak has a beak. He also has feathers. He is a birdman, which could theoretically be useful except he cannot fly. He can glide a little, and he wore a suit that allowed him to fly, but without the suit he is literally just a dude with a break. So really, if the X-Men had some kind of situation where they needed corn pecked off the floor quickly, Beak would have been vaguely useful.. until you remember the telekinetics who could grab the corn with their minds, or Storm, who could blow the corn away, one of any other thousands of mutants with the ability to move corn kernels more quickly than Beak could peck them.

It’s always fascinating to hear seasoned actors talk about how they navigate their careers. Ethan Hawke has had three movies in theaters this year: The critically-acclaimed Before Midnight, the surprise horror hit The Purge, and the fast-car flick Getaway, which opens today and costars Selena Gomez. As Hawke explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly managing editor Jess Cagle on EW’s Sirius XM channel this week, at some point, he realized he wasn’t a “shapeshifting” character actor — guys like Philip Seymour Hoffman and Vincent D’Onofrio, for example, who embody different people so you don’t recognize them from one role to the next. So he decided he’d push himself by acting in different genres. “So, okay, let’s do Sinister. That director [Scott Derrickson] is crazy smart. He knows what he’s doing. He loves horror movies. I don’t know much about horror movies, but I know a talented person and I know he has something to say. He can use that medium and that genre to do something affecting in the same way that Richard Linklater can make a drama and they’re both unique voices in cinema. And that’s what I kinda chase.”
Why do Getaway?
“When I was a kid, I did [1991's] White Fang,” Hawke says. “The people who liked White Fang were, like, 12 at the time — well, they all grow up. They all grow up, and they grow up with you. And I have a feeling that you do a movie like Getaway, and kinda the hope is that you make a fun movie for young people, and I’ll be kinda like the Lee Marvin — I’m the old guy now…. ‘Who’s the old guy with Selena Gomez?’ It’s like, ‘Oh, he’s all right.’ But there’s a whole group of people [who] don’t care about Before Midnight or they don’t know what Reality Bites meant in 1994, you know. If I want to keep working and having something relevant to say, you gotta get your hands dirty. And it’s really hard. You talk about balancing a career — it’s the most difficult thing that they can’t teach you in acting school.”

Bret Easton Ellis has told The Hollywood Reporter he was left "confused" by the level of hatred unleashed by critics of The Canyons, the Lindsay Lohan-starring "modern day film noir" he wrote for director Paul Schrader.
Schrader's film, which also features porn star James Deen in a leading role, was turned down by both Sundance and SXSW film festivals and widely rubbished by reviewers upon its eventual low-key release in one New York cinema and via on-demand. It currently maintains a paltry 23% rating on the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. Ellis, writer of the novels American Psycho and Less Than Zero, said he was surprised by the "the loudness of the dislike" for the film, but did not regret its controversial castings.
"We had seen hundreds of actresses for the part of Tara," he said. "And then when Lindsay came into it late in the game, she was just better than anyone else."
Ellis said he was disappointed at the nature of some of the attacks on Lohan. He said:"I could take people putting down my work and saying they don't like it, but being made fun of physically is really terrible. The amount of attention paid to her physicality, and the nastiness – I don't know what it is. That's something that would probably get to me. I guess that's just what it means to be Lindsay in a way."
Set in Los Angeles, The Canyons stars Deen as a calculating young movie producer, Christian, who discovers his actor girlfriend Tara (Lohan) has hidden an affair in her past. On Deen's casting, Ellis said he was inspired by "mommy porn" literary sensation Fifty Shades of Grey, which is itself being made into a high-profile film. "I was thinking about James Deen and I was thinking about Fifty Shades of Grey," said the writer. "That's how James's character was named. It has nothing to do with Christian Bale in [the film version of] American Psycho. I really wasn't thinking of that at all. I was thinking about Christian Grey."
Ellis said he was used to his work being vilified by the critics, and pointed out that his most celebrated work was dismissed upon its initial publication. "I have had a ton of shit thrown at me since I was very young,"he said. "The reviews for this movie are actually better than for American Psycho, the book, when it was published. I got no good reviews for that book at the time. So my armour was built a long time ago."
He added: "I think that the hatred for the movie is disproportionate to the movie itself. And I don't know if Lindsay brings something to that. I don't know if casting James did something, or if I'm such a polarising figure."
What was more shocking than Miley Cyrus' MTV VMAs performance on Sunday? A photo showing Robin Thicke putting his hand on a blond fan's butt at the after party.
The mystery girl, Lana Scolaro, exclusively confirms to E! News that the photo is real, despite reports that his hands aren't on her rear end.
When asked how the photo came about, she explained that she met him a week prior to the party and had "just moved to New York about a month ago."
In the photo, it appears that we can see Thicke and the young lady's backs reflected in a mirror—and his hand looks questionably close to her butt.
So was she aware of what frenzy would ensue upon posting the snapshot?
"I knew his hand was on my butt, but I didn't know that there was a mirror," she explained.
And despite people claiming that the pic was altered in some way, she explains, "I don't even know how to use Photoshop."
She added, "I didn't even know that was the reflection until I uploaded it, and someone commented on it. I was just like, ‘Oh I'll Instagram this photo with Robin Thicke, like everybody else.'"
After she uploaded the captured-on-camera moment, an obviously concerned Twitter user tweeted it to Thicke's wife, actress Paula Patton.
"@PaulaPattonXO look at the reflection girl," Jen Leadley, whose profile states that she's in the U.K., tweeted along with the pic.
A source tells E! News that the photo, however, is a "non-issue" between the couple.

Guess she has more than a little of her dad Tom Cruise's daredevil spirit – PEOPLE confirms that Suri Cruise has broken her arm.
It's not known how the 7-year-old suffered the injury but a rep for her mom, actress Katie Holmes, confirms to PEOPLE that "Suri did break her arm, but she is okay."
Suri has been living in N.Y.C. with Holmes since her parents divorced in 2012, but was reunited with her dad at the beginning of August when she visited him in the U.K.
She was most recently spotted visiting her mom, on the set of her recently-wrapped movie Miss Meadows in Cleveland, although the pair are now believed to be back in Manhattan.
Hope she feels better soon! Share your broken bone stories.
In the Patricia Highsmith adaptation, she will portray a department store clerk who falls for a married woman.
BERLIN – Oscar-nominated actress Rooney Mara is set to co-star opposite Cate Blanchett in Todd Haynes’ Carol.
The suspense drama, adapted from the novella by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley), is set in 1950s New York. Mara will play a 20-something clerk working in a department store and dreaming of a better life who falls for an older, married woman (Blanchett).
Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley are producing Carol for Number 9 Films, with Christine Vachon’s Killer Films co-producing. Shooting is set to begin in spring 2014. U.K. broadcaster Channel 4's Film4 is a co-financier and co-developer on Carol.
“We're over the moon to have Rooney on board,” said Haynes. “I've been a tremendous admirer of her work from the beginning, so the thought of bringing her together with Cate onscreen is thrilling to say the least."
Added Karlsen: "Rooney Mara is one of the most interesting and striking young talents working today. There are few actors who have the weight to play against someone with the extraordinary distinction and mercurial range of Cate Blanchett, and she is one of them. The combination of them both is something potentially sensational."
HanWay Films is handling international sales on Carol and has presold the film to multiple territories, including to The Weinstein Company for the U.S., Entertainment One in Canada, TF1 in France and Icon in Australia.
The film marks Haynes' return to the big screen after his excursions into TV, which included the Golden Globe-winning miniseries Mildred Pierce with Kate Winslet.
