SUMMER BOX OFFICE:
TO HIT THEATRES IN AS MANY WEEKS
Studios have slotted an unusually high number of comedies for release in May, June and July. Strategically, they hope to repeat the success of past Summer hits such as The Hangover, This is the End and we're The Millers.
Comedies are very different from other genres because they can be geared for different audiences. The Summer of comedy kicks off at the end of April. First up, The Other Woman starring Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. On May 9th, no fewer than three comedies open; Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Jon Favreau's mainstream comedy The Chef, the Christian movie Mom's Night Out and Seth Rogan and Zac Efron's edgier entry, Neighbors.
Blended, reuniting Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler opens May 23rd. A week after that, Seth MacFarlane debuts A Million Ways to Die in the West.
June's comedy slate includes 22 Jump Street and Think Like a Man Too. Melissa McCarthy's Tommy drops anchor. In July, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal unwind their Sex Tape.
The lineup is based on that tried and true theory: people love to laugh.
TOM HANKS TO STAR IN
NEW COMEDIC DRAMA
A Hologram for the King will be the latest Hanks-starrer. He's joined in the comedic drama by Homeland actress Sanita Choudbury and Omar Elba of Intelligence.
Shooting started March 6th in Morocco on this adaptation of the Dave Eggers novel published in 2012 and set in a rising Saudi Arabian city. Hologram follows Alan Clay, a middle-aged American businessman---played by Hanks---as he travels to the Saudi city to drum up some scratch for his daughter's college education. And maybe do something so he can tell himself life isn't such a ramshackle affair after all.
The novel is a meditation on one man's place in a globalized economy. One that avoids outright depression thanks to its subtle sense of humor.
With Hanks as Clay, that slight sense of humor is certain to make it to the big screen intact.
