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).

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.

Emma Roberts has had a very busy summer. For starters, her film with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, We’re The Millers, premieres next weekend. She’s started filming season three of American Horror Story. And of course, she’s added extensions to her shoulder-length dark blonde strands and dyed it to a longer, lighter look.
“I just love having long blonde hair again,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s actually a fun change. I feel like with blonde hair, you can get away with going lighter on the makeup, which is so nice to do in all this humidity. And I can tie it back and do messy knots and all of those fun hairstyles for summer, which are harder with shorter hair.”
And the Neutrogena spokesperson is getting plenty of practice with heat-proof makeup while on set in steamy New Orleans. “Luckily … I like keeping it natural, or I would be in trouble in this crazy heat,” she said. “For me, anything that makes it look like you don’t have makeup on [is key]. I like the MoistureSmooth Color Sticks in peachy or pinky tones, then just mascara and I’m good to go.”
And when it comes to taking off the day’s sweat and grime, Roberts swears by Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes in Pink Grapefruit — which, coincidentally, can be one of two Neutrogena products you buy at Target to get the back-to-school-ready ID wristlet you see her carrying in that photo.
“[I like to] use them after the gym so the sweat doesn’t sit on your face, which is how I feel I used to get a lot of breakouts,” she said. And she also swears by a few other lesser-known tricks to tend to her hair and skin in less-than-ideal conditions. “Apple cider vinegar is great at removing any [product] buildup” in your hair, she says. “I also love putting almond oil on my skin as it traps in moisture after showering.”
