Hollywood Minute: A Movie Fit For Friday the 13th

The stars of "Happy Death Day"

(CNN) — “Happy Death Day,” sort of a mash-up of “Groundhog Day,” “Scream,” and a John Hughes movie, has a shot at topping the box office this weekend. If you’re on the fence about seeing it, the stars would like a word with you.

“Why are you on the fence?” asked Israel Broussard, who plays “Carter Davis” in the film. “Is it because it’s a horror? Because if it’s a horror, that’s no excuse. You got to kind of go check it out either way, because it really is a movie of all movies, so you gotta.”

“I think it’s just really fun,” added actress Jessica Rothe, who plays Tree Gelbman. “It’s a roller coaster of emotions. You’re going to feel everything, and you’re going to feel things you never thought you would feel. So it’s an unexpected surprise.”

Bruno Mars is taking his “24-Karat Magic” to the American Music Awards. The singer-songwriter leads this year’s American Music Awards (AMAs) nominations with eight, including artist and video of the year. The 2017 AMAs take place November 19 in Los Angeles.

Anticipation is growing for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Online views of the latest trailer are outpacing those of the first teaser, released in April. Advance ticket sales have begun, and Disney says many early U.S. shows have already sold out, nine weeks before the movie opens.
