New Hancock TV Spot...2008 Box Office Predictions...

Hey guys. I have a final in the afternoon, so here is an early edition of news and notes...
-While watching the pile of shit that is the fan fed American idol (really, you guys are gonna send Carly home?), a new TV spot for the upcoming Will Smith film, Hancock was shown. I personally am starting to get interested in it. I mean, come on, Jason Bateman! Heres the spot

-Guillermo Del Toro has gone on the record as saying he will not do more than three Hellboy films...
-Jim Croce fans rejoice, Bad Bad Leroy Brown is getting optioned as an action comedy...
-Indy 4 will indeed premiere at the upcoming Canne Film Festival, but will not compete...hmmmm...
-Okay, the biggest news so far today is that Entertainment Weekly just released their projected box office the are...

1. Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (355.9 million)
2. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (310.8 million)
3. Hancock (280.4 million)
4. Wall-E (280.3 million)
5. Iron Man (267.7 million)
6. The Dark Knight (255.0 million)
7. Kung Fu Panda (244.6 million)
8. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (176.5 million)
9. The Incredible Hulk (147.2 million)
10. Tropic Thunder (146.6 million)

I personally think that The Dark Knight is not gettting enough love. Although I really don't know where you could put it. I think this is pretty much a perfect list. What do you guys think?

More news later to day, so in the meantime, go see something good!


  1. I would like to see the Dark night at number three I think that is a good spot for it. I really do not see Wall.E making more money than the Dark Night. Unfortunalty I think the chronicle movies will make more money..ugh. There is just something about book movies that makes me a little sad. I mean kids are going to see the movies so they will never pick up the book! Then they miss all the real magic and fantasy in the book. A movie has tons of speacial effects but it does not have a child's imagination. The same thing with the Harry Potter movies, in this case I am sure almost everyone who has seen the movie has read the book, but after seeing the movies and then reading the book it is hard to let your imagination run wild while rading becasue all you are thinking about is the movie. Sometimes when I hear that my favorite book is becoming a movie a cringe because I don't want the moive to ruin the book for me. There is one book called the Tithe that I LOVE and I ever want to see in movies becasue the whole time the imagination is going crazy while reading I don't want a movie made that could suck or something. Pretty soon all kids will be doing is seeing movies and no longer reading because they will eventually make a movie about it. Why read the comic books when someone can easily see the movies! It is like a conspiricy that the movie people want to suck the imagination out of children and put a face on all the super heroes or main characters of their favorite book. Which destroys childhood. I grew up with using my imagination to keep me entertained no all kids do is play video games or see movies about books! I like movies but I like original movies, new ideas. Next time a book movie comes out I am going to say I have already seen the movie....becasue I already created my own movie when I READ the story in my head.

    p.s I am still going to see the Dark Knight because I did not read the comics and never will. :)

  2. Wow. I could not have said it better. I totally agree with you. But if you think about it, so many movies nowadays are based of a film. Hell, my two favorite films from last year are based on books. I think they have their place.

    You can never underestimate the power of Pixar. I think Wall.E. will pull in major bank. All of their films so far have, and I think Wall E will be the best animated film from this year, and it will get major hype.
