Weekend Box Office...new releases, a game, and a poster...
Hey guys! Today is a big day, so I'm going to just get into it...here are the top ten films from this weeks box office...
1.The Incredible Hulk
2.Kung Fu Panda
4.You Don't Mess With the Zohan
5.Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
6.Sex and the City
9.The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
10.What Happens in Vegas
The Incredible Hulk grossed roughly 53.5 million bucks...a little lower than the early tracking numbers, and much less than the tracking earlier this week, which called for close to Iron Man numbers. Speaking of Mr. Stark, Iron Man grossed another 5 million big ones, bringing it's total, domestically, to right around 290 million dollars. Nice job RDJ. This is actually not the worst list in the world. Hulk is getting solid reviews, Panda is great, Indy 4 is good, Iron Man is really solid, and The Strangers is a solid horror flick. Also, with some of the recent DVD releases, and smaller indie flicks that are out, this is a great summer for flicks...
Here are the big upcoming DVD releases for this tuesday, June 17th...
- Fools Gold...Matthew McConaughey in a rom...why delve into this...skip it...
- Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins...Martin Lawerence comedy...in other words, skip it...
~~PICK OF THE WEEK~~
BE KIND REWIND
Not the greatest movie ever made, but a really heartfelt comedy starring Jack Black and Mos Def, coming to us from visionary director Michel Gondry. I personally would say get The Science of Sleep and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind before this flick, but if you just want a funny movie with a real heart of gold, than give this a shot. You won't be dissapointed. Go read my review of it in the note, Be Kind, Rewind...
Alright, so we only have two wide releases for this upcoming Friday, both of which are not high on my anticipation list. Get Smart stars the *cough* overrated *cough* Steve Carrell, and the gorgeous Anne Hathaway in an adaptation of the cult 60's television show of the same name. It looks decent, but in a summer with other solid films, it's just not high on my list. The other film is The Love Guru, aka Austin Powers 4, and I'm not going to really start on this film, but I just will not see it, and neither should you...
Finally, I have two things to tell you guys about. First off, there is a new poster, or really a character banner for the upcoming film, The Spirit, and this time, it's got the seductive, yet lackluster actress, Scarlett Johannsson.
I think Scarjo is gorgeous, and in certain films (Ghost World, The Prestige, her little part in The Man Who Wasn't There) I think she can be a really solid actress. I hope she does well in this film, because that poster is amazing.
The other thing is another game for you all to come join me on. It's called the Hollywood Stock Exchange, and all you have to do is log on, sign up, and pick your movies. You can pick films, actors, directors, and other stocks for awards and the like. It's just like the normal stock exchange, but instead of floundering tech companies and real money, you get to pick floundering box office bombs (Speed Racer anyone?) with fake moolah. Also, if you get enough money, you can purchase some HSX schwag to wear or use. Here's the site, and come check it out!
Alright, thats all I've got right now...some come back later for some more info!!
Go see something good!!!
