There are certainly some pretty horrible film titles that get churned out on a regular basis, and while they probably mean little in the grand scheme of things, naming a movie is still something Hollywood takes very seriously. On that note, it looks like a trio of highly anticipated films have had their titles put under the microscope recently, with two now set for changes and one gaining its first name.

For starters, Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s first attempt at simultaneously starring, writing and directing a feature — a project long in the works considering his ventures on website hitRECord — has been given a title, or at the very least now has a working title to go by. The film seems to be going by “Don Jon’s Addiction,” as recently reported by THR and detailed on the Voltage Pictures website. The title is of course a play on Don Juan, »

How’s your Oscar hangover? We’ve all got the prosecco sweats in the Playlist offices this morning, but that’s about the norm for a Monday. Or a Tuesday. Or a Thursday. Anyway, the dust is settling post-Oscars, with the winners basking in their glory, and the losers digging through their script pile to find a disabled Holocaust survivor to play to give them another chance at the big prize.

But the question is: how was the ceremony? After one of the very worst last year, and the controversy after Brett Ratner was forced out (with original host Eddie Murphy following soon after), they were always likely to go for a safe year, and that’s exactly what we got: a dull ceremony that could have come from pretty much any time in history. It wasn’t the worst of ceremonies — there were quite a few good little moments, but there were also plenty of lowlights. »

Overheard @ Box Office: “You can’t go wrong with Dr. Seuss”

Overheard on Friday:

 

Woman#1: (Defeated sounding) I have to take my son to see The Lorax.

Cheerful Female Friend: Ohhh, you can’t go wrong with Dr. Seuss!”

 

 

Cheerful Female Friend has clearly not registered the atrocities Hollywood has often made from the good doctor’s work. And when one thinks of the colorful wit and profound whimsy of Dr. Seuss surely mainstream heartthrobs like Zac Efron and Taylor Swift pop immediately to mind! What a, uhhhh, perfect vocal match.

But Cheerful Female Friend speaks for all of America. So testifies the box office!
