Are you ready for the second biggest party of all time? Project X’s performance at the box office this past weekend has ensured that a sequel is in the works. Though it didn’t make a lot of money by Will Smith needs an 11-story motor-home standards, it did do pretty well for a found footage film.

It’s unknown whether or not the film would revolve around the original trio of nerds or if producers Todd Phillips and Joel Silver will find brand new people we’ve never seen before in our lives. Co-writer Michael Bacall is already at work for a treatment on the sequel which likely reads like so… “Guys drink beer… hot girls kiss one another on neck… lasers… Skrillex…” Sounds like a go picture to me. (THR)

This weekend, Todd Phillips unveils Project X, which is being billed as “the best party movie ever.” In the film, three high school nerds throw a party that quickly spins out of control. Parents have been urged to not allow their kids to see it, which means their kids are so going to love it.

From the trailers and clips I’ve seen, it certainly does look like the epic party to end all parties. But let us not forget the crazy parties that proceeded it, laying the destructive groundwork for the obliteration of teen braincells.

American Pie

Depending on your outlook, the party at the end of American Pie was a total success or completely disgusting. Sure, everyone got laid. But one of those unions was between a seventeen-year-old boy and his classmate’s mom. That’s statutory rape and it doesn’t belong at parties. Depending on your outlook, and your state of residence.

Can’t Hardly Wait

Can’t Hardly Wait takes the best part of any ‘80′s high school movie and focuses on it. The party. The film follows several plotlines all intersecting at the same party where everything goes wrong. The house gets trashed, the bathroom lock breaks, the jock embarasses himself, and Love Burger never gets their sh*t together well enough to play.

Test audience reactions to the Todd Phillips produced Project X has been positive, proclaiming it the “best party movie ever.” But that’s only because no one has ever filmed my partys. The buffalo deviled eggs are off the hook, guys.

Those familiar with the project know that director Nima Nourizadeh cast relative unknowns for the story of high school nerds who become legendary after throwing the most epic party. How epic? Hot chicks, at least one dwarf, tasers, flame-throwers, and not to be overlooked, a little dog in a moon bounce. The dog alone sells me. Is it too late to get him a Golden Collar nom?

Another audience member referred to it as “Superbad on crack.” Hey, let’s all go out and try some crack. It looks awesome! (Coming Soon)

When I first heard of a the upcoming film Project X, I thought to myself, “I will be goddamned if I’m going to acknowledge the existence of a movie called Project X that isn’t about monkeys and Matthew Broderick.”

But then I saw this trailer and changed my mind. From producer Todd Phillips and rookie director Nima Nourizade comes this film about high school kid who throws a house party that gets a little out of hand. But not in a Dazed and Confused way, or even a Risky Business way or even a Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead way. Ahh, the high price of high school popularity.

Nope. This kid somehow managed to sneak Electric Daisy Carnival into his parents house. It’s being discussed as a comedy, but I really don’t get any humor coming through this trailer. Rather, it feels like a slow-motion trainwreck.

The fact that the thing opens up with a video message to his parents reads rather ominously.

“Mom, Dad – if you’re watching this video, then that means I died of either alochol poisoning or spinal injuries sustained while motorboating some skank. Tell Patches that I love him.”

Project X doesn’t hit theaters till March 2, so we’ll have plenty of time to see what the deal is, but right now, just watch the film and be glad you’re not this kid.

Zac Efron, best known for crowd pleasing fare like the surprisingly good 17 Again and Hairspray is branching out into grittier territory with the action comedy The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman.”>Zac Efron, best known for crowd pleasing fare like the surprisingly good 17 Again and Hairspray is branching out into grittier territory with the action comedy The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman. The film concerns a man who loses his mother, goes to Europe to find himself, falls for a girl, finds out the girl “belongs” to the head of a violent crime family, and must fight for not only her honor, but also their lives. Wow. That’s a far cry from High School Musical, ain’t it?

The film, scripted by Matt Drake, writer of the upcoming Todd Phillips/Joel Silver produced comedy Project X, is set up at Mandate Pictures.  With this project, and the start of his own production company (Ninjas Runnin’ Wild), Efron seems to be entering a new phase of his career. A phase where his billions of screaming tween fans won’t be old enough to be admitted to see his movies in the theaters without a guardian, but will find a way regardless. Love always finds a way.
