In news that really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, a cast member from the much derided television guilty pleasure ‘Jersey Shore‘ was arrested today, just another in a long line of the show’s stars to do something stupid and find themselves in handcuffs for it.
It’s difficult to imagine two more different films going head-to-head at the box office. However, by appealing to completely different audiences, ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted‘ and ‘Prometheus‘ both managed to emerge from the weekend as big winners, making this the first weekend in months where two new major releases opened strong.
We all think ‘Wreck-It Ralph,’ Disney’s animated homage to video games, look completely awesome, right? You’ve watched the trailer, so now it’s time to play the game! Yes, it’s a video game based on a movie about video games. It’s okay, that hurt our brains a little, too.
It’s an announcement that will surely have thousands of childhoods buzzing with nostalgia: the Jim Henson Company will be taking Arnold Lobel’s ‘Frog and Toad’ book series to the big screen as an animated movie.
The box office can be a funny thing. Last weekend, ‘Men in Black 3‘ made $55 million and was considered a disappointment. This weekend, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman‘ pulled in $56 million and it’s considered a roaring success. As bizarre as that sounds, it all makes sense when you look at the details.
Can you blame anyone for thinking that Hollywood is cooking up a movie based on the video game Tetris? It may not have a story or any characters, but it’s a recognizable brand name and sometimes, it seems like that’s all that matters. The following trailer is a joke from a group of talented filmmakers, but we worry that a producer or two may see this video and get the wrong idea.
It took four weeks for another film to dethrone ‘The Avengers‘ from the top of the box office, but that dethroning occurred with a whimper, not a battle cry. ‘Men in Black 3‘ arrived on the scene and proved that advance hype and high tracking are abstract concepts that don’t always reflect reality. $55 million isn’t an opening that’ll have executives committing seppuku, but for a film that was expected to open to north of $80 million, it’s a definitely a solid kick in the groin (metaphorically speaking, of course).
Not every actor can be a star, but plenty of them can become one of “those guys.” While we may not know the performer’s name, we certainly recognize their face. We know them from somewhere and that’s enough. Seeing a familiar working actor pop up here and there is just plain comforting. Jane Carroll was a lifelong member of the “those guys” club. She passed away on Tuesday after a lengthy battle with an undisclosed illness. She was 71.
‘Battleship‘ was supposed to be the film that nudged ‘The Avengers‘ out of the number one spot at the box office, but instead you can just go ahead and insert your own “You sank my battleship!” joke here. ‘The Avengers’ didn’t cling to the top spot for the third week in a row, it dominated the top spot for the third week in a row, taking in another $55 million for a grand domestic total of $457 million.
Poor Barnabas Collins never stood a chance. Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows‘ found itself clobbered to death over the weekend courtesy of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, who rode a perfect cocktail of hype and stellar word-of-mouth to an unprecedented second weekend. It’s no longer a question of whether or not ‘The Avengers‘ will be one of the biggest movies of all time, mainly because it already is one of the biggest movies of all time: after only nineteen days, it’s crossed the $1 billion mark. The question we should be pondering now is whether or not it will become the biggest movie of all time.
