The hugely popular Disney Channel sitcom Hannah Montana, starring Miley Cyrus, made its second transition to the big screen this weekend in Hannah Montana: The Movie. The song-filled comedy took the number one spot with a whopping $34 million. That number proved to be $4 million higher than Miley's last turn at the box office in Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour. This is a strong franchise that shows no signs of slowing down.
Racing into second place this Easter weekend was Universal's fourth chapter in the popular Vin Diesel/Paul Walker car racing series Fast & Furious. It nabbed another solid $28.7 million, making it the fastest film to zoom past the hundred million dollar mark this year. In just two weeks of release, it has already made more than $118 million. We're more than guaranteed a fifth installment at this point.Read More

On April 8th, director James Wong is bringing the hugely popular Dragon Ball cartoon to life with his live action adaptation Dragonball Evolution. Originally based on the Dragon Ball Z television series, this new incarnation follows the plight of popular anime character Goku (Justin Chatwin) as he ventures from childhood into adult hood. At his dying grandfather's request, the young fighter must find the great Master Roshi and help him collect all seven mystical Dragon Balls before they fall into the evil hands of Lord Piccolo. If they fail in their task, Piccolo will succeed in taking over the world!
Last year, we were invited to visit the vast, practical Dragonball Evolution sets being built in Durango, Mexico. There, we would talk with most of the actors from the film including Chow Yun-Fat who stars as Master Roshi. Also along for the ride were Emmy Rossum as the highly intelligent weapons expert Bulma, Korean recording artist Joon Park as the shy yet deadly Yamcha, and the great James Marsters, who truly embodies the evilness that is Lord Piccolo. We were allowed to hop from one studio location to the next, each door transporting us directly into some fantastical new world straight out of the original manga upon which Dragonball Evolution is based. Various different scenes were being shot simultaneously inside an abandoned jeans factory. And we were there to watch as some of the action went down.Read More
