“A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film.Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
Catherine Zeta-Jones, Diego Boneta, Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Tom Cruise and even Katy Perry were caught on set of Rock of Ages while it was being filmed last Summer. The '80s themed musical, which was directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray) and also stars Alec Baldwin and Bryan Cranston hits theaters this weekend. Does this flashback in time have enough to take the number one spot at the box office this weekend? Not according to Ray Subers from boxofficemojo.com:
"The box office gets a heavy dose of 80s nostalgia this weekend thanks to musical Rock of Ages, which utilizes 80s rock tunes for all of its songs, and R-rated comedy That's My Boy, which finds Adam Sandler sporting an 80s mullet. This isn't the first time that a June weekend has harkened back to that decade: in 2010, The Karate Kid remake and The A-Team adaptation opened to a combined $81 million. There's virtually no chance that Rock of Ages and That's My Boy deliver a similar result, and Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted will likely hold on to first place."
Madagascar 3 was the surprises winner last weekend, knocking off Ridley Scott's Prometheus, and it doesn't seem to have slowed too much over its first week in theaters. Subers is projecting Rock of Ages to finish in second this weekend at $28.6 million, behind only Madagascar 3 which he projects to drop 44% to $33.8 million. There is lots to choose from this weekend, animated family movie, R-rated comedy or 1980's musical. I don't think I can choose between all these great offerings, I might just have to see more than one.
Which movie are you going to see this weekend? Let us know in the comments section.
Katy Perry is spotted filming the music video for her new single The One That Got Away in Los Angeles earlier this month (October 2). Wow, she must have spent hours in makeup to look like an old woman!
The One That Got Away is the sixth single off of Katy's amazingly successful album sophomore Teenage Dream. In a press release, the singer said that she was excited about the song hitting the airwaves:
"I'm so pleased to select The One That Got Away as my sixth single because this song shows a very different side of me that I haven't shown with my past singles on this record, I think that everyone can relate to this song. I wrote (it) about when you promise someone forever, but you end up not being able to follow through. It's a bittersweet story. Hopefully, the listener learns from hearing it and never has to say they had 'The One' get away."
Here's some great behind-the-scenes footage of Katy Perry on the set of a photoshoot for Rolling Stone magazine last month in Miami. Florida? I thought she was a California girl!
That man you see behind the camera is legendary photographer Terry Richardson.
In the interview (in the July issue of the magazine - on newsstands now), Katy reveals that it took her quite a while to embrace her body:
"I started praying for [breasts] when I was, like, 11. And God answered that prayer above and beyond, by, like, 100 times, until I was like, 'Please, stop, God. I can't see my feet anymore. Please stop!'
"I was a lot more rectangular then. I didn't understand my body. Someone in sixth grade called me 'Over-the-shoulder boulder holder.' I didn't know I could use them. So, what I did was, I started taping them down. How long did I tape them down for? Probably until I was about 19. And, no, I don't have any psychological pain because of it."
Russell Brand is spotted hanging with his wife Katy Perry on the set of Rock of Ages in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday (June 1). What a hip couple!

Even though Katy's on a mini break from her tour, she certainly hasn't stopped working. On Tuesday she tweeted: "Werking on bringing Tour.0 (2.0) #CALIFORNIADREAMSTOUR to USA. It's bigger, better & w/more balls! Party in the USA fer SURE! #cantwait!"
In case you're look for something to do this weekend, Russell has a movie recommendation. Over the weekend he tweeted: "Go and see Bridesmaids. It is beautiful and full of incredible comedy performances. Go on."

Katy Perry is spotted on the set of the music video for her new single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.). Katy also posted the album artwork for the new single on her Facebook page. Check it out in the gallery.
Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) is the fifth single off of Katy's 2010 album Teenage Dream, and follows California Gurls, Teenage Dream, Firework, and E.T.
According to Katy, the video has already been shot for the new single; she tweeted: "I told someone about my new music video I just filmed & they responded with 'wow, that's gonna break the internet.' ... Should I knock on wood?"
Kanye West and Katy Perry are seen on the set of her new single E.T. in a picture tweeted by the California Gurls singer yesterday (Feb. 16).
E.T. - which features Kanye - is scheduled to be Katy's fourth official single off her album Teenage Dream and will be released on Feb. 27 in the UK and Mar. 1 in the USA.
BBC Music said we can expect to see a different side of Katy on the single: "On the rave-influenced quasi-ballad E.T., there’s a resolute aptitude for sober, dark deliberations which introduce a very different Katy Perry to the one with the unsolicited residency in many a showbiz column."
