The 26-year-old Mexican American actress’ Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation has become Sony Pictures’ biggest animated film of all time globally.

Selena Gomez

At $476.3M worldwide, it sailed past Hotel Transylvania 2 ($474.8M) on Friday. Combined, the three Hotel Transylvania movies have now grossed in excess of $1.3B global.

Through Friday, Hotel Transylvania 3cruised to $316M at the international box office, topping Hotel Transylvania 2. Domestically, it’s tallied $160.3M, about 6% off the previous movie.

The first two installments were released in the fall, so Hotel Transylvania 3 was the first summer tryout for the series.

In Latin America, notably, Hotel Transylvania 3 is Sony’s 2nd biggest title of all time for the region behind Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle. It is also the studio’s biggest grosser ever in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Slovakia, Lithuania and Ethiopia.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the film has Adam Sandler and Gomez atop the voice cast.

Gomez’s “Hotel Transylvania 2” Sets New September Box Office Record with $47.5 Million

Selena Gomez has nearly 48 million reasons to celebrate…

Hotel Transylvania 2, which features the 23-year-old as part of the returning voice cast, easily topped the weekend box office, earning an impressive $47.5 million.

Selena Gomez Hotel Transylvania 2

Hotel Transylvania 2 takes place seven years after the first film, with the hotel now open to human guests. Mavis (Gomez) and Johnny have a young son named Dennis, whose lack of any vampire abilities worries his grandfather Dracula. When Mavis and Johnny go on a visit to Johnny’s parents, Dracula calls his friends to help him make Dennis a vampire. However, an unexpected visit from Dracula’s old-school human-hating father, Vlad soon turns things upside-down.

Hotel Transylvania 2 also sets a new September record, beating the original “Hotel Transylvania” film’s $42.5 million launch in 2012.

It’s also Gomez’s best opening at the box office, beating out the $45,012,998 earned by Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! in its opening weekend back in March 2008.

The $80 million production got off to a brisk start overseas, outpacing the first film’s results in parts of Latin America.

“It’s on its way to being one of the most beloved franchises of all time,” said Rory Bruer, Sony Pictures president of worldwide distribution.

“There are a lot of stories left to tell,” he added, saying he hoped there would be a third installment. “Adam Sandler and the filmmakers have created an unforgettable animated world that plays to audiences everywhere.”

Gomez to Star in the Indie Film “The Revised Fundamentals Of Caregiving”

Selena Gomez has set her sights on her next film role…

The 22-year-old half-Mexican American actress and singer has landed the female lead opposite Paul Rudd in The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, directed by Emmy winner Rob Burnett.

Selena Gomez

Rudd will star in the indie drama as Ben, a caregiver looking after a frustrated teenager named Trevor who is in the advanced stages of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Gomez will portray Dot, a sassy young woman who hitches a ride with the pair during a road trip, and whose forwardness and lack of embarrassment about Trevor’s condition causes him to develop a crush on her.

Burnett, the veteran exec producer of The Late Show with David Letterman, adapted the script from Jonathan Evison’s 2013 novel of the same name.

Soon-to-be co-stars Gomez and Rudd were snapped Sunday night after the Golden Globes with writer/actor Justin Theroux, when a photo of the trio posted to Gomez’s Instagram garnered 1.1 million likes.

Filming on The Revised Fundamentals Of Caregiving begins January 22 in Atlanta.

It’s the latest indie film for Gomez, whose big screen credits include Sony’s 2012 animation hit Hotel Transylvania. A role in Harmony Korine’s racy Spring Breakers added street cred to her resume, and she was most recently seen in William H. Macy’s directorial debut Rudderless, which premiered last year at the Sundance Film Festival.

Gomez next reprises her voice role in Sony’s animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 2 opposite Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg. Offscreen, the global star who has over 107 million social media followers recently signed with Interscope Records after a long run with Disney’s Hollywood Records.

Gomez to Release New Album Next March

If you’re tired of hittin’ repeat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat on Selena Gomez’s last album When the Sun Goes Down, you’ll only have to wait a little longer for new music.

The 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress, who has been focusing more in recent months on acting projects like Spring Breakers and Getaway will reportedly release her next studio album in March 2013.

Selena Gomez

Gomez was in Texas on Wednesday to help Ryan Seacrest open Seacrest Studios, an interactive media experience for kids at the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. During the event, Seacrest posted via Twitter, “@selenagomez just told me new album in march fyi,” and linked to a photo of himself and the former Disney Channel star.

Though no other information has been released, the news hints at the end of Gomez’s musical hiatus, which started back in January 2012.

To date Gomez’s last album, When The Sun Goes Down, has sold 642,000 copies since its June 2011 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album — her third with her band Selena Gomez & The Scene — spawned her biggest airplay hit ever, “Love You Like a Love Song,” which reached No. 15 on the Billboard Radio Songs chart and her first top 10 on the Pop Songs tally.

Since the album’s release, Gomez has turned her attention to acting, lending her voice to Hotel Transylvania and returning to her Disney roots for a Wizards of Waverly Place special. She also launched a self-titled fragrance last spring.

It’s no wonder Gomez was recently named Glamour magazine’s 2012 Woman of the Year for her burgeoning career and her continued philanthropic work with UNICEF.

Gomez Returning for “Hotel Transylvania” Sequel?

Selena Gomez may soon be checking back into Hotel Transylvania

Following the success of the 20-year-old half Mexican American actress’ animated film, Sony Animation has reportedly set a September 25, 2015 release date for a sequel to the animated film.

Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania debuted to big numbers at the end of last month and finished its opening frame in the No. 1 spot at the box office with $43 million, breaking the all-time September opening-weekend record and becoming the unit’s top-grossing debut ever.

Gomez lends her voice to the character of Mavis, Dracula’s teenage daughter in Hotel Transylvania.

The film’s domestic take at the box office has reached $137.5 million so far and it’s on the shortlist for the animated feature Oscar.

Gomez’s “Hotel Transylvania” Takes a Large Bite Out of The Box Office

Hollywood should take note… Selena Gomez is apparently cartoon gold at the box office…

The 20-year-old half-Mexican American actress/singer’s latest animated film Hotel Transylvania claimed the box office crown this weekend while setting a new September record.

Selena Gomez

Hotel Transylvania led this weekend’s box office with $43 million from 3,349 theaters — the highest September opening weekend of all time ahead of Sweet Home Alabama‘s $35.6 million bow a decade ago.

The monster hit, which centers on the former Wizards of Waverly Place star’s character Mavis celebrating her 118th birthday, earned a sizzling $12,840 per theater average.

Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania, which cost Sony $85 million, should continue to play to family audiences in the weeks leading up to Halloween, and will easily break the $100 million mark.

Gomez’s animated film Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!, which was released in March 2008, earned slightly more than Hotel Transylvania with $45 million. That film would go on to make $154 million at the box office.

Lovato: The Top-Ranking Latweeno on Billboard.com’s 21 Under 21

Billboard.com is back with its list of this year’s hottest minors in music, with five Latweeno artists/groups making the cut… And Demi Lovato isn’t only the highest ranking Hispanic artist, she’s also the top-ranking female…

The 20-year-old part Mexican singer/actress, who ranked at No. 7 last year, moved up four spots on Billboard.com’s latest 21 Under 21 installment, which ranks the most powerful minors in music.

Here’s a look at the Latweenos making the grade this year:

No. 3: Demi Lovato
Following the personal problems that threatened to derail her career two years ago, Lovato has come back Unbroken, which happens to be name of the album she released last year. It’s an album that’s still garnering attention. The album’s first track Skyscraper” recently picked up an MTV Video Music Award, while follow up single “Give Your Heart a Break” has resulted in Lovato’s first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

But that’s not all… Lovato scored a high-profile primetime television gig by joining Fox’s The X Factor, where she’s currently judging other aspiring artists alongside Simon Cowell and Britney Spears.

Throw in a popular summer tour with Hot Chelle Rae and hosting gigs at the Teen Choice Awards and MTV’s live New Year’s Eve Special, and 2012 is proving to be the year the former Disney Channel star is reaching new heights in her already impressive career.

Scotty McCreery

No. 4: Scotty McCreery
Scotty McCreery is holding steady on the 21 Under 21 list, coming in at No. 4 once again. That’s probably because the 18-year-old part-Puerto Rican country singer’s career has been going full steam ahead since he won American Idol in 2011. McCreery, who graduated from high school this year, saw his debut album Clear as Day reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Even though he hasn’t placed a single in the top 10 on the country charts, McCreery has developed a very loyal fan base at a young age. Clear as Day helped him claim prizes from the American Country Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards and the CMT Music Awards.

McCreery even toured with Brad Paisley and performed on the CW’s Hart of Dixie.

McCreery is following up his debut album, which was certified platinum, with a holiday set, Christmas with Scotty McCreery, will hit stores on October 16.

No. 6: Selena Gomez
She may have dropped three spots on the 21 Under 21 list, to No. 6, but Selena Gomez has not fallen off the radar. In the last year, she’s released another hugely popular album (When the Sun Goes Down), which spawned the hit singles “Who Says” and “Love You Like a Love Song,” which earned Gomez her first-ever MTV Video Music Award nod. And the 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress performed the album’s third single, Hit The Lights, on Dancing with the Stars.

And Gomez has broadened her appeal while taking a break from recording music. This spring, she launched a brand new fragrance and focused on her film career. Her voice will be heard in the animated film Hotel Transylvania, and she’s set to appear in two films that could help shatter her Disney image: Spring Breakers with James Franco and the crime drama Getaway.

And she’s currently dating the No. 1 on the 21 Under 21 list, Justin Bieber, which has resulted in countless tabloid placements. Selena Gomez and the Scene will hopefully be back soon, but in the meantime, she continues to leave her indelible imprint on pop culture.

3BallMTY

No. 17: 3BallMTY
3BallMTY may not be huge in the United States, but they could be very soon. The Mexican DJ collective, comprised of 19-year-old Erick Rincón, 19-year-old Alberto Presenda (DJ Otto) and 20-year-old Sergio Zavala (DJ Sheeqo Beat), have managed to turn their hobby into a huge business that’s reached a global audience thanks to their signature “tribal guarachero” sound. They’ve achieved success via radio airplay and synch deals with brands like Pepsi. And they recently dominated the list of finalists for the upcoming Billboard Mexican Music Awards. Despite their newfound fame, 3BallMTY has kept a cool and down-to-earth attitude about the group’s ascent in the music business. This past summer they opened up for Justin Bieber in a special concert at the famous Zócalo, the main square in the heart of historic Mexico City in front of about 200,000 music fans. “It was a bit nerve-wrecking,” says Rincón, “but once we were out on stage it was an amazing experience that we will never forget.”

Victoria Justice

No. 21: Victoria Justice
Victoria Justice has taken a tumble on the 21 Under 21 list, dropping from No. 10 to No. 21. But that has nothing to do with the 19-year-old half-Puerto Rican singer/actress’ talent. The star of had a relatively quiet recording year. She’s the breakout star of the Nickelodeon hit show, even while co-stars like Ariana Grande are seeing their stock rise. The release of the show’s latest soundtrack, Victorious 2.0, coincided with the release of Justice’s recent solo single, “Make It In America,” and in August Justice embarked on her first solo tour in support of the pop tune.

With Victorious ending it’s run on cable, Justice will be setting her sights elsewhere. She has a new film Fun Size coming out this October; and she plans to release a solo album shortly after that.

First Look: Gomez’s Fangtastic Character in “Hotel Transylvania”

Selena Gomez is preparing to take a bit out of the box office…

Columbia Pictures has released a new trailer for Hotel Transylvania, the 3D computer-animated comedy featuring the voice of the 20-year-old Mexican American actress/singer.

Selena Gomez

Shining a bright spotlight on Gomez’s and Adam Sandler’s characters, the clip shows the former Wizards of Waverly Place star’s character celebrating her 118th birthday in her locked-up room.

For a birthday present, she begs her dad Dracula (Sandler) to allow her explore the world outside their hidden castle. Mavis whines and moans to her overprotective dad until she doesn’t realize that her fangtastic dad actually says yes. Finally realizing she’s been granted permission, she spontaneously jumps into the air and hugs her dad.

Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania is Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live without having to deal with the human world. Overprotective of his daughter, the Prince of Darkness fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to discourage her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the hotel, where his daughter and some of the world’s most famous monsters can kick back in safety and peace. For Dracula, catering to his ghoulish guests isn’t a problem – but his world could implode when an ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.

Along with Gomez and Sandler, the voice cast includes Andy Samberg, Kevin James, Fran Drescher and Cee-Lo Green.

Hotel Transylvania will open in theaters across the U.S. on September 28.

Gomez to Star in “Parental Guidance Suggested”

She may be a pop princess… But Selena Gomez will rockin’ out on the big screen in the near future.

The 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress, who was just nominated for her first MTV VMA award, has signed on to star in the indie film Parental Guidance Suggested, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gomez will appear opposite Nat Wolff in the offbeat coming-of-age comedy, while The Secret Life of American Teenager’s Austin Stowell will co-star as the overbearing boyfriend of Gomez’s character. The cast also includes Dylan McDermott and Cary Elwes.

Based on Ric Browde‘s novel While I’m Dead … Feed the Dog, the story centers on 16-year-old Ric Thibault (Wolff) and his crush Nina Pennington (Gomez) as they embark on a rock ‘n’ roll-themed odyssey.

Gomez, who recently wrapped up work on the film Spring Breakers, will next voice a character in Adam Sandler’s Hotel Transylvania.

Parental Guidance Suggested will shoot in Los Angeles.
