comment 0 Comments | Monday, Sep. 01 2014, 02:53 PM

This weekend, Labor Day brought an end to another summer movie season on a slow note with the Marvel overachiever Guardians of the Galaxy leading the way again grossing an estimated $22.2M over the long Friday-to-Monday holiday weekend in its fifth frame. Three of those frames were spent at number one.

This week's Ketchup, coming to you just before the Labor Day weekend, covers what was admittedly sort of a slow week in movie development news.

John Hawkes' Five Favorite FIlms

comment 0 Comments | Friday, Aug. 29 2014, 03:15 PM

On screen, John Hawkes is something of a chameleon, looking completely at home on the dusty, swear-heavy roads of Deadwood, the raging seas of The Perfect Storm, the snowy fields of Winter's Bone, or the emotionally complicated modern world of Me You and Everyone We Know. His beginnings in a rural community, as he points out a couple of times in this interview, got him used to the certain kinds of classic films that were readily available to him, and later set him up for some memorable experiences with different kinds of art. His list has both, and he would like for it to be known that he could easily pick five completely different films if I were to return in five more minutes and ask again, which I would have happily done.

Mindy Kaling is a Jane of all trades. She began on the U.S. adaptation of The Office as a staff writer, but her character Kelly Kapoor was quickly fleshed out into a more prominent role. Currently she's writing, producing, and starring in her own show, The Mindy Project, set to begin its third season Sept. 16 at 9:30 pm on Fox.

Pierce Brosnan's 10 Best Movies

comment 0 Comments | Thursday, Aug. 28 2014, 01:09 PM

This weekend, Pierce Brosnan rejoins the action-star ranks with The November Man, a new thriller from director Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job) about a retired CIA agent lured back into the game for one last mission. But if the sight of the former James Bond coolly wielding a pistol reminds you of Brosnan's past secret-agent glories, we're here to remind you that his filmography is about so much more than characters with a certain set of skills; in fact, he's been part of a long series of critically acclaimed -- and eclectic -- projects. How many of your favorites match up with the critics? Let's start the countdown and find out!
