Ashby stars Mickey Rourke and Nat Wolff with Emma having a supporting role. Awkward Ed Wallis (Nat Wolff) needs help fitting in and turns to his neighbor Ashby Holt (Mickey Rourke) for help. Ashby’s unforgiving brand of tough love soon tests their friendship, and it hardly helps when Ed learns that Ashby is a former CIA assassin. The film will make its debut at the Tribeca film festival in New York in April so hopefully soon will see a theatrical release (most likely limited).

When his stash and cash are stolen, he’s left in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms), and soon becomes a big-time drug smuggler, tasked with bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico. One fake wife (Anniston), two pretend kids (Roberts and Poulter) and a huge, shiny RV later, the “Millers” are headed south of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to end with a bang.

Below you can find DVD captures from the film Empire State, which was released on September 3rd in the US. Emma doesn’t have many scenes but from my “unbiased” opinion she shines! Also have added deleted scene captures from the features. Also found one still and added the poster (DVD cover) to the gallery.
You may not be lucky enough to be at the Telluride Film Festival today, but let Vulture bring a little bit of the festival to you: We’ve got the exclusive trailer for Gia Coppola’s film Palo Alto, premiering in Telluride tonight. Based on the first book of short stories by James Franco, the movie stars Franco as a football coach who takes a too-romantic interest in teenage babysitter Emma Roberts; in other intertwined stories, we meet troubled kids Teddy (Jack Kilmer, whose father, Val, also makes a cameo) and Fred (Nat Wolff), who drives into a wall on purpose in the film’s first scene. Press play, and enjoy some complicated coming of age.
Check out video and captures below! Will replace captures with better quality once a better quality video is available…
On a very slow late-August weekend, Lee Daniels’ The Butler easily held on to the top spot at the box office. We’re the Millers also continued to play well, while all three new nationwide releases opened to less than $10 million.
Overall, the Top 12 earned $90 million. That’s up nine percent from the same weekend last year, when The Expendables 2 led with a weak $13.4 million.
With good reviews and strong word-of-mouth, The Butler fell 33 percent to $16.5 million. In comparison, The Help dropped 23 percent at the same point in its run two years ago, while 42 dipped 36 percent in its second weekend in April. Through 10 days in theaters, The Butler has earned $51.8 million.
Late Summer comedy hit We’re the Millers eased 27 percent to $13.05 million, which allowed the movie to rank second for the third-straight weekend. It’s now earned $91.3 million, and it will pass $100 million next weekend. Unless something drastic happens—like One Direction: This is Us winds up being a massive hit—We’re the Millers will be the highest-grossing August 2013 release.
It can’t be film festival season without at least a couple projects involving James Franco and 2013 is no different. Over the coming weeks we’re going to see yet another film directed by the prolific polymath and another based on his book of stories, which he will star in. So let’s dive right in.
We have to admit that we sort of forgot “Palo Alto” was even happening, but it is notable for a few things. Firstly, it’s the feature debut of Gia Coppola, yet another family member getting into the filmmaking business. She’s mostly done music videos and commercial work for now, and this marks her first time not only directing, from a screenplay she penned herself. Secondly, the film has a pretty interesting cast including Emma Roberts, Nat Wolff, Val Kilmer and….Franco, playing a football coach? Okay, we’re intrigued. Here’s the official synopsis:
An unflinching take on teen angst and adult ineptitude, PALO ALTO is from first-time helmer Gia Coppola. Teddy, April, Fred and Emily use booze, marijuana and sex to get through the turmoil of adolescence.
“Child Of God” will play both Venice and Toronto, while “Palo Alto” is only going to Italy. Images below.
On a very busy weekend for new releases, Elysium took first place with $29.8 million. The real winner, though, was road trip comedy We’re the Millers, which did surprisingly strong business. Meanwhile, Planes got off to a fine start, while Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters opened way below its predecessor.
Overall, the Top 12 earned $142.3 million, which is up seven percent from last year. The four new nationwide releases alone combined for $92.9 million, which is a very high figure for the month of August.
We’re the Millers opened to $26.4 million, which was good for second place this weekend. That’s actually a higher opening weekend than Tropic Thunder or Pineapple Express, both of which debuted on a Wednesday in August. Including Wednesday and Thursday, Millers has already earned $37.9 million.
A lot of different areas came together nicely to contribute to this movie’s success. First, it had a clearly-articulated, interesting premise that was rife with potential laughs. It also had an appealing cast—yes , Jennifer Aniston has a few misses, but overall her box office track record is strong—and a great release date (the last major comedy, The Heat, opened seven weeks ago).
The movie’s audience was 51 percent male and 61 percent over the age of 25. It received a good “A-” CinemaScore, and its good hold throughout the five-day start suggests that word-of-mouth is strong. If it plays out like Tropic Thunder—which is possible, but not probable—it will ultimately earn well over $100 million.
