Despite a vaguely disappointing opening box office, most die hard horror fans rushed into theaters to catch "Scream 4" this weekend, and the reviews were mostly positive. The litany of plot twists and meta-jokes were enough to satisfy one of Earth's biggest pop singers and even lead one "Scream" alumnus to wish she hadn't been killed off so soon.
Many people who saw "Scream 4" this weekend were also treated to a brand new trailer for the summer comedy "Bridesmaids." All the hubbub is making the film's director refreshingly excited, so he took to the tweets to make some odd requests. And then apologize.
And unless you spent the weekend in isolation, you know that everyone was talking about Nic Cage's bizarre run in with the law and the reality TV star who bailed him out of prison. Sometimes Hollywood makes it too easy for comedians.

"Bridesmaids" Request: @PaulFeig Bridesmaids billboards going up today. If you see one, could you snap a photo for me? I've never had a movie that had a billboard before.
"Bridesmaids" Apology: @PaulFeig Sorry for the lame billboard photo request but what can I say? I'm excited. It's part of my boyish charm. Or it's just sad. One of those.
