Weekend Box Office...new releases...
Here is the final talley for this weekend's box office...
1.Kung Fu Panda
2.You Don't Mess With the Zohan
3.Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
4.Sex and the City
7.The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
8.What Happens in Vegas
10.Made of Honor
The Panda made bank...60 million bucks even...Zohan made 40 million dollars, and both films smashed their expected totals. Interesting note, Indy 4 and Sex and The City switched spots this week, with Sex falling a whopping 63 percent . Looks like the film won't have legs for the long hall we call summer. Or maybe it was just that it may not have been a good movie. Ladies, whats going on?
Here are the upcoming releases on DVD for this tuesday, the 10th.
- The Bucket List...a buddy comedy for the early bird special set. Not the greatest of reviews, but good message. Skippable, although I love the cast...
- Jumper...A horrible action adventure movie starring the robot that we know as Hayden Christensen. Skip it at all costs.
- The Other Bolyen Girl...a solid costume drama starring Eric Bana and Scarlett Johannson. It's got a horrible title, but is a pretty decent movie. Rentable, but that's about it.
- Witless Protection...why does Larry The Cable Guy have a carrer?? Someone answer me that please.
~~PICK OF THE WEEK~~
- FUNNY GAMES -
I just did a post on this flick, so I'm going to keep this short. This is one of the most intense films I have seen in a long time. It will polarize people, and is easily in the top 5 films I have had a chance to see this year. Please, rent or buy this, and then tell me what you think!
Here are your upcoming releases for this friday, June 13th...
-The Happening...Horror film from M. Night Shamalyan. I don't know a ton about this movie, and most people don't so, I'm interested in it, so check it out!
~~PICK OF THE WEEK~~
-THE INCREDIBLE HULK-
This is the only other movie coming out, so there's this or the film festival. However, the reviews for this film are coming out, and seem to be really solid, and they are clocking it at huge numbers...Iron Man numbers. So, just go out, and say, have a double feature with The Happening.
Alright guys, thats about it for right now...come back later for more news and notes!
Go see something good!!
