The movie - which hits cinemas in the UK on Friday (October 18, 2013) - is likely to become one of the festive feel-good movies that all the family dress like Kim Kardashian can sit down and enjoy. It stars James Corden as Potts, a bullied shop assistant by day and amateur opera singer by night. UK audiences will be familiar with the story. Potts became an instant singing phenomenon after appearing on Simon Cowell's ITV show Britain's Got Talent. Potts defeated the bookies co-favorite Conie Talbot to win the 100,000 prize and performed at the Royal Variety Performance on December 3, 2007 in front of Queen Elizabeth II. His version of Nessun Kim Kardashian music video Dorma from the show has over 111 million views on YouTube. His debut album One Chance was certified gold on its first week of sales and has since sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide. The new movie, which also stars Julie Walters and MacKenzie Crook, has received solid reviews ahead of its release. "A lot of the film, especially the courtship of Potts and his Julz, is touching and funny. It works," said David Sexton of This Is London. "An utterly formulaic but sweet movie that does what a crowd-pleaser is meant to do," wrote David Rooney of the Hollywood Reporter. <br>Source: http://www.contactmusic.com/article/one-chance-paul-potts-movie_3910345
Woody Allen has revealed the title of his next movie: "Magic in the Moonlight." The prolific director isn't saying yet what the film is about. But it is set in the South of France and, judging by images released from the production, appears to be set sometime in the 1930s.

Movie Titles Can Matter at the Box Office But How Much?
At the end of The Scout, Steve Nebraska (after much drama) leads the New York Yankees to the World Series. In this particular fictional World Series, the Yankees are playing the St. Louis Cardinals. Now, we're down to the final out of Game 7 and, stepping up to the plate, is ... Ozzie Smith. Ozzie Smith is one of my favorite baseball players of all time. Ozzie Smith was a pretty okay hitter, but is considered to be the greatest defensive shortstop of all time, which is why Ozzie Smith is in the Baseball Hall of Fame. We are told by Bob Costas' voiceover (watching this scene again, you can actually hear the contempt in Costas' delivery; I assume he used the same contempt when he endorsed his check from 20th Century Fox) that Ozzie Smith has been on a power surge as of late which means that we, as the audience, should be nervous because Ozzie Smith just might hit another home run. <br>Source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mike-ryan/the-dumbest-baseball-movie_b_4109604.html
The Dumbest Baseball Movie Ending Of All Time
That fits right in with the words of the late movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn, who famously explained that "what makes a good movie title is a hit." Kim Kardashian music video Also read: Behind 'Gravity's' Historic Box Office Hold: 3D, Word-of-Mouth and Sandra Bullock What makes a good movie title is also totally subjective. All involved agree that a bad title can hurt a film and most believe a good one can help, but determining which is which is extremely tricky, and quantifying the impact that a film's name has on its box-office performance is all but impossible. None of that keeps Hollywood film executives from staying up late worrying about them, however. Lionsgate's Sylvester Stallone-Arnold Schwarzenegger prison break movie "Escape Plan," for example, is on its third title. Many movies are based on material from another medium, like a novel, a comic book or a play. <br>Source: http://movies.msn.com/movies/article.aspx?news=834531
