WEEKEND WRAP UP...

Hey guys! Here is your weekend box office top 10...

1.High School Musical 3: Senior Year
2.Saw V
3.Max Payne
4.Beverly Hills Chihuahua
5.Pride and Glory
6.The Secret Life of Bees
7.W.
8.Eagle Eye
9.Body of Lies
10.Quarantine

High School Musical 3 will gross right around 46 million bucks this weekend, and Saw V comes in very respectable with 30.5 million big ones. The Chihuahuas will fall to number 4 with about 7 million dollars, and I officially think the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy of 2012 is on schedule. Get out and see W and Body of Lies!!

So, this is not a really noteworthy week for DVDs. Actually, the only two worth a discussion are Journey to the Center of The Earth and Kit Kittridge, so I'm going to stop the DVD discussion there, and get to a full week of theatrical releases.

Oh man, this is one big week for film releases, at least to me personally. First off we have the new film from Clint Eastwood Changeling. It stars Angelina Jolie whose prayers for her kidnapped son to return home are answered, however, it doesn't take long for her to suspect the boy who comes back is not her actual son. It co stars John Malkovich and is one that has been gaining a lot of Oscar buzz, especially for the direction of Clint Eastwood. The second film comes to us from Kevin Smith, and features Seth Rogen and the beautiful Elizabeth Banks. It's called Zach And Miri Make A Porno, and the title tells the story. Zach and Miri are two roommates who are short on rent and decide to shoot a porno, yet they find out that they may have deeper feelings for each other than previously thought. It looks like it will be hilarious and Kevin Smith films are always cause for excitement. Finally, we have the new film from Guy Ritchie, RockNRolla. Early reviews for this film have been mixed, but his style of crime/gangster films always seem to be a fun time. With classics like Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrells and the underrated Snatch, this is one of my more anticipated films of this season. It stars Gerard Butler, who I'm slowly starting to like watching, and the gorgeous Thandie Newton. So, this week should have something for everyone, and you can expect a review of Zach and Miri and RockNRolla for sure, and if I have a slow weekend I will post my thoughts on Changeling as well.

That's all I've got for now, so come back later for more movie news and a new top 10, the top 10 Scariest Films Of All Time...

Go see something good!

  1. I think it's a crime that so many bad movies are outselling W. At least it's outdoing Eagle Eye, though.

    And I've actually heard good things about Kit Kittredge, hard as I found that to believe at first. I'm going to try to check it out at some point.
