The Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn Part 1 has sold $3 million copies of the DVD in two days. The movie also had 50,000 downloads and 80,000 video on demand transactions. These numbers have given Breaking Dawn Part 1 the top seller spot of the year.
Some retail stores who did a midnight release party showed a clip from Breaking Dawn Part 2. The part 2 is set to release in the fall of 2012.
Ice Cube is currently in the works for making another ‘Friday’ movie. His goal is to get the entire cast back, even Chris Tucker. A rep for Cube Vision Productions said, “Absolutely yes the studio is in the process of getting the entire original cast to do another ‘Friday.'”
Rumor has it that Tucker is all for the fourth installment to the ‘Friday’ franchise.
Faris’ and Evans’ comedy What’s Your Number? barely managed to make the Top 10, with a weak $5.6 million estimated Friday-Sunday debut.
The movie is Evans’ second non-starter in as many weeks, after the low-profile Puncture.
Compared to What’s Your Number?, the A-list thriller Dream House, starring Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz, did a little better, or a lot worse, if you consider its reputed $50 million budget. Still, it’s too early to call flop on Dream House as its international cast figures to be a draw overseas.
Rogen’s and Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s 50/50 was the weekend’s “top” new release, meaning it opened in fourth place. It was Rogen’s smallest-opening movie ever about cancer; on the other hand, it was his first appropriately budgeted one. 50/50 cost about what it made: $8 million; his earlier Funny People was a $75 million money-loser.
I caught this article over at ShortList.com where a Chinese motorbike rider fell into an open manhole and it reminded me of some people I have known. They tend to not notice the small details that everyone else easily works with. You probably know someone like this too.
For instance, maybe you have a friend who never notices the hole in the road and repeatedly drives into it, wrecking their vehicle constantly. It’s almost as if for that moment this person has lost their common sense. It’s almost like those movie scenes where you see the comic relief walk into a glass sliding door, yet I can attest that I have actually seen that happen in the past.
Do you know someone lacking common sense? If you do, call up and share your story.
Movie remakes/reboots are one of the things I just can’t stand for the most part. Most of the time the remake/reboot is nowhere near as epic, original (obviously), engaging, creative, etc.. as the original film. I seem to be noticing a lot more these days and it just leaves me irate.
The upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man franchise is one really good example. Why does this need to be remade so soon?!?!?
I’m not totally against them as I enjoy both versions of Let the Right One In (that was remade in the U.S. as Let Me In) as both offered an interesting take on a lately Twilight-covered genre. -_- I can actually say that the U.S. version even fixes some of the minor flaws I saw with the original, but this is one of the few exceptions to an otherwise steadfast rule for remakes/reboots.
How do you feel about movie remakes/reboots? Call up and be heard!
