Summer's fast approaching, which means it's time for Adam Sandler to plan his next
family vacation goofy summer-themed movie project.
Sandler has spent the past three summers filming Grown Ups, That's My Boy, and Grown Ups 2 in New England with his family and friends. But, this year he's trying something new and bringing the gang (which includes his wife, kids, and some combination of David Spade, Nick Swardson, Milo Ventimiglia, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, Andy Samberg, or Chris Rock) to Sun City, South Africa.

August 9. Mark it in your iCal right now.
That's the release date for Disney's newest animated film, one based on the winning formula of "Cars," but featuring AIRPLANES. And, just as you'd expect, the title of the film is to be "Planes." The story follows the struggles of Dusty, a single-engine plane from a pastoral background who dreams of hitting the big time in air races.
Even cooler still:
We first reported on the development of Planes way back in August 2011 when some initial sketches were released,but recently Disney not only introduced the whole cast of cutesy flying machines, but also announced the celebrities lending their voices to the film.
Without further ado, meet the Planes:

Last week, we dished on Air Pacific's brand new airplane, new look as Fiji Airways, and even mentioned how to test out the fresh bird. Just the thought of Fiji seems exotic, pretty far away, and difficult to get to. Exotic, yes. Far away, sure. Hard to get to, not at all. This week, we'll be looking at what there is to do once you do make it to the way out to the middle of paradise.
This photo is not your typical shot of a tropical South Pacific island. Nopeit was taken from onboard a zippy catamaran trip going from Nadi to Tokoriki, and that island in the distance may be a tropical South Pacific deserted island, but for a time it was the center of Hollywood's universe. It's practically a movie star.
Yep, you heard it right, that island is just as much a celebrity as, say, Tom Hanks. If you think it looks a little familiar that's because it's the actual island from the 2000 box office blockbuster movie, Cast Away.

James Franco's character Alien in Spring Breakers has been described as a guy "out to have a demonic good time," and isn't that what everyone is looking for on spring break?
Even if you're wrapping up this year's trip it's never too early to start planning for 2014, so here a few serious party places featured in the new movie because after all, according to Alien, "Bikinis and big booties, y'all. That's what spring break is all about!"

The protagonist of the new Vegas-set movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone may be a fictional character, but he got plenty of help from the real deal for the film.
Many scenes in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, the new Steve Carrell/Jim Carrey movie about an up and coming street magician who makes the more established acts look stale, were filmed on the Las Vegas Strip, including the now famous suspended, see-through box stunt that was filmed above Las Vegas Boulevard outside of Bally’s last year.
Brand new airplanes sure have been the talk of the last couple years, what with the debut (and un-debut) of the Boeing 787, the introduction of the massive Boeing 747-8 and the very recent unveil of the Bombardier CSeries.
Even if you couldn't give a damn what airplane you're flying so long as you get where you're going, there are a few aircraft from movies and TV that could make your ride even smoother. Though these will likely never roll off an assembly line, we can't stop from wishing...
Five Airplanes We Wish Were Real But Totally Aren't:
5. Snoop Dogg's "Soul Plane"
Confession: we went to see this movie on opening night in the theaters. Why? Umm, because Snoop Dogg is the pilot of a stubby, Barney-purple 747 and surely that would be hilarious. Wrong. It was a seriously disappointing movie, and they didn't show the plane itself (rather, the CGI of it) nearly enough. Still, we can't help loving a plane with spinners on its landing gear and flight attendants sporting retro-inspired short skirts.
Warner Bros. finally released the trailer for The Hangover Part III last week and it sees The Wolfpack return to Las Vegas, get chased through the desert, and end up in Mexico.
But just because the gang winds up in Mexico, doesn't mean they actually filmed there. Most of the Tijuana, Mexico in the movie scenes were actually filming in downtown Nogales, AZ, which was transformed to look like the the U.S./Mexico border.
The Sundance Institute is branching out again with Next Weekend, an extension of the popular Next section at the Sundance Film Festival, which showcases films that take a bold approach to storytelling.
Next Weekend will take place Aug. 8-11, 2013 at Sundance Sunset Cinema in Los Angeles. The program will include screenings, as well as panels, parties, and artist programs that "celebrate the renegade spirit of independent filmmaking."
Spider-Man might be a fixture in New York City, the city Peter Parker calls home but, surprisingly, not one Spider-Man movie was entirely shot in New York...until now.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the first in the history of the franchise to be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.
Several hotel chains and tourism boards across the country are jumping on the Oscar bandwagon this week, but if you really want to immerse yourself in the world of a Best Picture nominated film, The Hotel Palomar Philadelphia has the package for you.
