Hey guys...Here are the stats for this weekends box office...
5.Kung Fu Panda
6.The Incredible Hulk
7.Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
8.Kit Kittredge: An American Girl
9.Sex and the City
10.You Don't Mess With the Zohan
Wow, Kit Kittredge beats Sex and The City...Hancock pulled in roughly 107 million dollars over the 6 day opening, with 66 million of that coming over the weekend, almost doubling Wall-E's weekend, 33.5 million dollars.
So, looking for something to rent this week, here are your noteable DVD releases for this Tuesday...
Batman: Gotham Knight
- Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten
One of the better docs from last year. Not the greatest documentary, or even the best Clash documentary, but it's solid, and is worth a rent...
- The Ruins
Torture flick...skip it...
Small little film from earlier this year, starring Charlize Theron. Thats really all I know about it, so, I'll be checking this one out, as should you.
- Stop Loss
Not the worst Iraq War film, but one that is skipable. It's really only worth your time for the great performance by Joseph Gordon Levitt.
- Superhero Movie
Really, is this even appealing to any of you? Skip it..
~DVD Pick of The Week~
Batman: Gotham Knight
6 Interlocking stories, 6 acclaimed anime directors, all produced by the people behind Batman Begins and Batman: The Dark Knight. Oh, did I mention they have the voice actor behind Batman: The Animated Series back to reprise his role as the Caped Crusader. If you have been reading the blog, you know that I'm really excited for this, as you all should be. Anime may turn off some, as I know it does to me sometime, but it's Batman, and really, outside of a mediocre Clash doc, you have nothing new, so give it a shot.
Also, this Friday we have three wide releases, the Eddie Murphy vehicle, Meet Dave (avoid), The 3D "epic" Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D (avoid), and the pick of the week, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. I'll be checking out Hellboy this weekend on my trip to Birch Run, and you all should see it too. Guillermo Del Toro is one of the better filmmakers that we have today, so support anything the guy does, even the upcoming Hobbit movie.
Now, thats all I've got for now, but come back later for some more news, notes, and a top ten.
Go see something good!
