Sandra Bullock Says No To 'The Heat' Sequel

October 2nd, 2013 4:07pm EDT
The Heat
Sandra Bullock has revealed that she doesn't think she will work on a possible sequel to her surprised comedy hit The Heat, in part because of her previous track record with sequels.

The R-rated comedy, also starring Melissa McCarthy, made over $220 million worldwide against a $43 million budget. The breakout hit immediately generated buzz of a sequel.

However, Bullock recently told Entertainment Weekly, "I know they say never say never, but right now, I can’t imagine it. I don’t want to ruin what Melissa and I had. If a miracle happens where [a script] shows up that really and truly outd...

Despicable Me 2
The giant robots of Pacific Rim were no match for the Despicable Me 2 Minions this weekend, as the family feature topped the box office for a second straight week.

The sequel to 2010's Despicable Me raked in another $44.8 million, bringing its two week total to just shy of $230 million.

Another sequel, Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 came in second despite being the summer's worst-reviewed movie, according to Rotten Tomatoes.com.

Guillermo del Toro's robots vs. monsters movie came in well under expectations, making just $38.3 million for a third place finish.

Monsters University
"Monster's University" graduated at the top of the box office after making $46.1 million over the weekend. Billy Crystal voices Mike while John Goodman is Sulley in a film about how the pair of monsters overcame their differences and became the best of friends even though they couldn't stand each other when they first met.

Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock's cop comedy "The Heat" came in second place with earnings of $40 million. Last weekend's number two, "World War Z," starring Brad Pitt, took the third slot with takings of $29.8 million.

'Monsters University' Holds Off 'The Heat' For Top Box Office spot

June 30th, 2013 1:37pm EDT
Monsters University
Monsters University may have held off The Heat for top spot at the box office, but The Heat did well for an R-rated comedy that was out-promoted by White House Down.

White House Down, which spent plenty of money for spots during the NBA Finals and across TV, could only take a distant third with $26.6 million. Monsters University took around $46 million and The Heat earned $40 million. World War Z and Man of Steel round out the top 5 at $29 million and $21 million, respectively.

It's quite possible crowds were either confused by fellow "White House attacked" film Olympus Has Fallen, or fou...

Review: 'The Heat' Is Far From Hot

June 28th, 2013 1:00pm EDT
'The Heat'
On paper this film must have sounded like a great idea.

A super uptight, friendless, socially awkward FBI Agent has to partner with a foul mouth, crass Boston cop in order to bring down a vicious drug lord. Add Oscar winner Sandra Bullock and Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy to the mix, plus director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), and you have a perfect female "buddy flick."

What could possibly go wrong?

Well, in the case of "The Heat," written by first-time screenwriter Katie Dippold, a great deal went wrong - mainly the film, which is a comedy that just isn't funny.

Not funny enough t...

Editor Disfigures Melissa McCarthy's Face And Neck On 'The Heat' Poster

Melissa McCarthy The Heat
Melissa McCarthy might be surprised when she sees herself on the poster for upcoming film The Heat.

McCarthy appears on the poster alongside co-star Sandra Bullock, who appears to have gone through some editing as well. However, the real story is what happened to McCarthy's face. It looks way too small for her body, and has the tell-tale signs of editing thanks to a blurred like around her neck and chin.

McCarthy has never been ashamed of her curves, so we doubt the demand came from the actress. Whoever ordered the change undoubtedly hired an amateur editor, as many outlets are calling it...

We spotted Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy acting very chummy at "The Heat" photocall at Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday. The duo was at CinemaCon for a 20th Century Fox press conference to promote their upcoming film.

Sandra looked sophisticated in black pants and an asymmetrical black and white sleeveless blouse, while Melissa wore black pants, a black sweater and silver sequined blouse.

The film centers on uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock), who is a methodical and arrogant investigator. Boston P.D. officer Shannon Mullins...
