In between blockbusters, the summer box office looks disappointing.
It’s time for the most highly anticipated part of the weekend – for studios, anyway – the box office roundup! Excited yet? Well, neither were movie-goers this week. Apocalyptic sci-fi prequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes won this week’s race with $36 million on its second weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. That counts as a 50% drop from its debut, but the Fox sequel had no trouble staying on top over horror sequel The Purge: Anarchy and the Cameron Diaz comedy Sex Tape, which is currently bombing in both reviews and earnings.
Dawn is holding up at the box office in its sexond weekend.

The clothes were kept on for the raunchy comedy’s L.A. premiere
Stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel led the red carpet at the premiere of their new movie, Sex Tape in Los Angeles. In the comedy, Diaz and Segel play a married couple, who decide to spice up their relationship by making their own x-rated ‘home movie’. However their plan goes awry when the film leaks, leaving the couple struggling to retrieve it from the Cloud network before they suffer a major embarrassment. But luckily for the film’s stars there were no embarrassing moments on the film's red carpet as the sun shone and they showcased their fabulous summer fashions.
First up was star Cameron Diaz, who played up on the film’s risqué tone, by sporting a semi-sheer jumpsuit. Featuring long sleeves and a polka dot pattern, the black silk jumpsuit was the perfect look for a summer night out and showcased Cameron’s incredible figure. The actress topped off the look by keeping her hair loose and wearing eye catching red lipstick.

The critics are unanimous - "Sex Tape" is as unsexy as it gets.
Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel’s new R-rated comedy Sex Tape may be all about doing it, but it’s not doing anything for the critics. According to its stars, the main selling point of this latest answer to The 40-Year-Old Virgin is that it’s relatable.
Much like its protagonist in some scenes, Sex Tape's humor flops around a bit, before sputtering out completely.
When asked about the raunchier moments in a recent CinemaBlend interview, Segel explained: “I’m more excited about honesty. And I think that painful honesty makes audience members feel uncomfortable in a way that’s really fun.”
While promoting the upcoming comedy 'Sex Tape,' the 34 year-old actor and the longtime chat show host engaged in a lengthy debate as to why a sandwich is better than a burrito.
Jason Segel is a sandwich fan!
The 34 year-old actor even prefers them to a tasty burrito, but it is this preference that astonishingly made him quit Twitter.
Segel recalled the funny tale on why he chooses not to tweet anymore while promoting his new comedy ‘Sex Tape’ on David Letterman’s ‘Late Show’.
David Foster Wallace's family are not happy about a new Hollywood movie, starring Jason Segel.
The family of the acclaimed late novelist David Foster Wallace have objected to a new movie about the writer, based on a road trip he took with a Rolling Stone reporter in 1996. The family say that "David would never have agreed that those saved transcripts could later be repurposed as the basis of a movie."
Jason Segel Will Play David Foster Wallace
The move, The End of the Tour, stars Jason Segel as Wallace and Jesse Eisenberg as journalist David Lipsky who wrote Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself - based on a five-day trip he took with Wallace during the author's publicity tour for Infinite Jest in 1996.
Tonight, we'll find out how Ted and "The Mother" met.
There'll be How I Met Your Mother fans with knots in their stomach all day today as they wait anxiously for the final episode of the hit CBS sitcom. It has been a long road for the comedy show which by tonight will have run its course over nine seasons. When "HIMYM" debuted back in the fall of 2005, no one could have predicted the consistent success and comedic legacy of such a simple premise: a man in 2030 telling his two kids the tale of how he met their mother.
'How I Met Your Mother' Prepares For Its Final Episode This Evening.
An entire series told in flashbacks, HIMYM only revealed the identity of "the mother" at the end of series eight, played by Cristin Milioti. Certain signals from her interaction with Ted (Josh Radnor) lead fans to believe that the mother actually is dead in 2030, and that's why the dad is reminiscing with his kids. This rumour was quickly played down by the cast but shows a keenness amongst fans for a "legen-dary" twist to top of their favourite show.

[Spoilers] The recent troubling 'HIMYM' rumours have made fans anxious for a happy finale.
In two episode's time we'll have the last ever episode of How I Met Your Mother. It has been a long and undulating road for the hit CBS sitcom but the upcoming 31st March will hopefully give the series' devoted fans the finale they deserve.
The HIMYM team's final outing will cap nine seasons, which is a pretty impressive feat: "I feel grateful that we all managed to get to the finish line. It's not every show that gets to run nine years and end on its own terms," says co-creator Carter Bays, who, has helped guide the show to its long-planned ending.

The cast of hit comedy TV series 'How I Met Your Mother' arrive separately at the New York studios for 'The Late Show With David Letterman'.
Michelle Williams and Jason Segel have ended their relationship after a year citing distance as a key component of their split, according to US Weekly. The pair had been dating since January 2012, having reportedly been introduced by a mutual friend, Busy Phillips who was in both Freaks and Geaks (with Segel) and Dawson's Creek (with Williams), but it seems with Jason working in LA and Michelle living with her daughter in NYC, the distance just got too difficult.
While we're very sad for Michelle Williams and Jason Segel that they've split, it also leaves the door open to them both in the future for anyone else. They may not be the obvious 'hot couple' of Hollywood, but now single they're each the most eligible bachelor and bachelorette available.
Segel is a talented comedian, actor, producer and writer, having penned both Forgetting Sarah Marshall and bringing the Muppets back to life in last year's movie, imaginatively named The Muppets. Michelle Williams is one of the best actresses that has come out of America over the past couple of decades though understated and undersold, she's been in modern classics and beloved movies such as Brokeback Mountain, Shutter Island and Blue Valentine. She also has a daughter with the late Heath Ledger. Ever the professional she has continued to do promotional work for her latest movie, Oz The Great and Powerful. Jason's next project wont be out until June, it's called This Is The End.
This overlong comedy is so episodic that watching it is exactly like sitting through five episodes of a sitcom back-to-back. It's funny and enjoyable, with characters we enjoy watching, but they continually spiral back to where they started, and in the end we feel like there's been a lot of fuss about nothing. Even so, the script offers plenty of hilarious observational humour, and the cast is thoroughly entertaining.
Reprising their roles from Knocked Up, Rudd and Mann play Debbie and Pete, who turn 40 within a week of each other. But Debbie isn't coping very well with it, and her emotions swing wildly from steamy lust to fiery rage while Pete just tries to hang on. Their daughters (played by Apatow and Mann's real daughters Maude and Iris) each have their own issues to stir into the mix. And then Pete's needy father (Brooks) turns up with problems of his own, forcing Debbie to think about her own distant father (Lithgow). Meanwhile, the economic crunch is causing problems for both of their businesses.
Yes, both of them own businesses. This is not the typical struggling 40-something couple, so it's not easy to sympathise with many of their issues. Fortunately, Apatow's dialog is packed with brazen honesty and an appreciation for rude gags that keep us laughing even in the absence of an actual storyline we can get involved in (although there's one major plot point along the way). Rudd and Mann were arguably the best thing in Knocked Up, so it's great to let them take the spotlight here, making the most of their sparky interaction. And aside from experts like Brooks and Lithgow, there is a continual stream of superb side roles, including Fox as Debbie's oversexed and possibly embezzling employee and McCarthy as a furious school parent (her big scene is expanded into a brilliantly improvised outtake riff in the closing credits).

The co-creator of 'How I Met Your Mother' Craig Thomas has confessed that the identity of narrator Ted Mosby's mysterious future spouse will be finally revealed in the ninth and last season of the show.
The CBS comedy show will make its conclusion in the next season but writers insist that all loose ends will be tied. "The plan has always been to meet this girl at some point", he told TVGuide.com. '[CBS] want to make sure, I guess, that the audience knows they're not going to be jerked around or short changed in any way.' He also mentioned that they wanted to go all out with the new series in its 'final lap', claiming that there will be no 'withholding of fun ideas' and describing the conclusion as a 'carpe diem' type affair.
In case one of our main stars; Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel; were to leave the series too early, however, Thomas said that they had 'a Plan A and a Plan B' as to how the series would make its finale. The rest of season 8 is currently being aired on Mondays on CBS in the US as well as E4 in the UK.
How I Met Your Mother, the enduring CBS sitcom, has been confirmed for renewal for its final series – the ninth since the show began back in 2005.
Making stars of the likes of Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel, as well as furthering the careers of the likes of Alyson Hannigan, the show has enjoyed a steady popularity both in the United States and abroad, and there was no surprise that it’s received commission for one final run. "Through eight years, 'How I Met Your Mother' has mastered the art of leading-edge comedy, emotional water-cooler moments and pop culture catch phrases," CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said in a statement. "We are excited for Carter, Craig, Pam Fryman and this amazing cast to tell the final chapter and reveal television's most mysterious mother to some of TV's most passionate fans."
Another statement, from Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen of 20th Century Fox Television, added "We're thrilled to have the entire and incredibly talented 'How I Met Your Mother' cast back for one final season to bring the series to a proper close. Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are masterful and hilarious storytellers, and we have no doubt that they will guide one of the greatest comedies of the last decade to a gratifying conclusion when they finally reveal the identity of the Mother."

Finally, we might find out how Ted met his kids' mother. The CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother has been confirmed by its makers that it will return for a 9th season, but that its season will be the last.
We'll have to say goodbye to Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), Ted (Josh Radnor), Marshall (Jason Segal), Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Robin (Cobie Smulders), but its legacy will live on in Suit Up Day, at the very least. From the writers of Friends, it has managed to retain a good audience and does particularly well with the sought after demographic of 18-49, according to the Los Angeles Times. Having premièred in 2005 it is now in its 9th season, and has followed Ted and his friends while he narrates the story of how he met his children's mother. Every relationship that he has seems to continually imply that that is their mother, but always fizzles out.
"Through eight years, 'How I Met Your Mother' has mastered the art of leading-edge comedy, emotional water-cooler moments and pop culture catch phrases," CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said in a statement. "We are excited for Carter [Bays], Craig [Thomas] and [executive producer] Pam Fryman and this amazing cast and to tell the final chapter and reveal television's most mysterious mother to some of TV's most passionate fans."
How I Met Your Mother, or All The Women I Slept With Before I Met Your Mother, will return for a ninth season, it was announced last night.
There had been some doubts over whether or not the show would return for another season after Jason Segel, who plays Marshall on the show, was reportedly sat on the fence over whether to return or not. However, according to Deadline, Segel decided to stick with the show for at least one more year after a last-minute change of heart during last night's negotiations. Deadline quotes a source as saying that Segel "decided to bail and leave the cast hanging, but he just got turned around today at the last second. The show was literally dead."
Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Barney, was also reportedly undecided whether or not to return to the show, but decided to pledge his time to the HIMYM some weeks earlier, leaving everyone hanging on Segel's word. Now though, it looks as though Christmas may have come early for HIMYM fans as the show will definitely be returning next year. In fact, executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have even hinted that this season may very well be the last when speaking to E! last month. Bay said: "It's obvious this show is around one central question, so that meeting [of the mother] will be part of the endgame of the show. How much the show will go beyond that, we can't really say one way or the other."

After the enormous success of the Jason Segal penned and produced The Muppets, it would have been a fiscally idiotic move not to continue capitalising on that success. As the BBC reports, Ricky Gervais will be starring in the next one in his first foray back on the silver screen since 2009's The Invention of Lying.
Joking about the role he said, "I have the biggest trailer but Kermit will spend some time in my sink." Production is set to begin in January 2013, and according to The Hollywood Reporter the gallivanting adventure will be set in Europe this time around, with three main human characters joining the beloved puppets. Both the songs and the script were written by Jason Segal for the 2011 movie, but he has said that he'll not be involved in a sequel. Segal's brilliant song writing skills managed to score him the Academy Award for Best Original Song, so the stakes are pretty high for The Muppets #2, so the second movie really may suffer his loss.
Although the production team for the new film haven't officially released any cast details yet, Ricky's agent has confirmed that he'll be playing a role in it. James Bobin (director), David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman (producers) are all back on board for the new film.
It’s hard to believe that Megan Fox gave birth to her first child less than three months ago. The actress has been making her return to the red carpet this week and there’s little arguing that she was the main focus of attention as she arrived at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles for the premiere of This Is 40, in which she stars.
Who are our favourite Hollywood couple right now? That's right, the adorable and unassuming talent power-house couple that is Jason Segal (How I Met Your Mother, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Muppets) and Michelle Williams (Dawson's Creek, Brokeback Mountain). The couple, who have now been dating for 7 months, have bought a loft together in Brooklyn, NY.
Williams and Segal have been living together for a few months, but were staving off moving into their own joint property. Williams was married to Heath Ledger, but were divorced 5 months before his tragic death. She and her daughter, Matilda, have lived in the home she and Ledge bought together ever since his death. However, with Segal entering Michelle and Matilda's lives, and providing an excellent father figure for young Matilda, it seems time for Michelle to properly move on.
Their new home is a converted loft, which has stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, according to WetPaint.com. The news of them moving in seems to confirm the idea that Segal feels he has met 'the one'. Last March he told Parade "I don't want to have a girlfriend for the sake of having a girlfriend. I have no desire to pick a random girl. I want the right girl. There are plenty of opportunities, but I would rather have the right one." He now has the right one.

The Oscars is the biggest annual event in western film culture, perhaps matched only by the Cannes Film Festival. Winning an Oscar is a director's, actor's or writer's proudest moment and one that will ensure career longevity and continued success. So, to host the Oscars is a pretty big deal- is Seth Macfarlane, a squat comedy writer whose shows have been censored and even banned in the past the right man for the role? And, if he's not, who may have been a better choice?
Seth MacFarlane is the creative mind behind the animated comedy tour-de-force Family Guy, as well as American Dad and The Cleveland show. He branched his career out further this year writing, directing and starring in the movie “Ted”.
However, MacFarlane had a slight mishap when hosting the Emmys this year, in which he couldn't find the mic. If he has a similar slip-up this year, the award directors may be lamenting not opting for someone else. But who else could step up to the mark? Judging on entertainment value and quality The Muppets would have been an excellent choice, or even the man responsible for bringing them vehemently back to life earlier this year, Jason Segel. Neil Patrick Harris is another all-rounder who would be great for the job, or even Mila Kunis.

And that's because the main protagonists are not slackers at all -- in fact, they're a trio of heady, hard-working college cheaters. Beginning with an elaborate scam that actually gives the movie some potential, we are introduced to our leads (Devon Sawa, Jason Segel, and Michael C. Maronna) as they simultaneously shoot video of the women's cross-country team, steal a physics exam, and fake getting hit by a truck. But screenwriter David H. Steinberg (story writer on American Pie 2) tries building an entire feature based on one decent scenario. And he, as well as the rest of us, are in some deep trouble for the remainder of the 87 minutes.
