First Look Preview: Stunning 'Titanic 3D' (http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/movies/preview_titanic_BmWaKMayoBA4YpGTqGHIHL)



http://www.nypost.com/r/nypost/blogs/movies/201202/images/kateleo.jpg

The James Cameron's spectacular new 3D version of "Titanic'' is everything I hoped for, and more. Attending one of Tuesday night's Valentine Day screenings around the world in New York, I had a great appreciation of how judiciously and subtly Cameron used 3-D technology to make a great film greater.
Cameron, who has been critical of post-conversion of conventionally filmed movies to 3-D, has obviously taken great care in using the technology to enhance the experience of watching his 1997 Oscar winner. Though "Titanic'' is half an hour longer than his "Avatar,'' I found it less of a strain on the eyes.
The 3D in "Titanic'' is more effective than in most films that were originally filmed in the process. It adds depth and makes the vastness of the titular ship, its decks and corridors look even larger and longer.
But Cameron also uses it to place emphasis on many smaller key objects, like Kate Winslet's necklace and the axe she uses on Leonardo DiCaprio's handcuffs. Winslet's suicide attempt is even more chilling in three dimensions.
The already-spectacular effects in the long sinking sequence look even more breathtaking in 3-D. It helps that Cameron originally filmed "Titanic'' in a relatively classic style, so there are fewer of those quick cuts that can be so jarring in 3-D, which requires more time for your brain to process edits.
Winslet's voluptuous figure in 3-D is one of the most magical effects -- along with DiCaprio's climactic slide into the depths, wonderfully rendered stereotypically.
The spectacular "Titanic 3-D" opens in the United States on April 4 -- eight days before the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

Schwarzenegger joins Stallone in 'The Tomb'

http://www.trendgeeks.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/draft_lens13604671module128487921photo_1287926345s ylvester-stallone-vs-arn.jpg

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — It’s an action superstar reunion: Arnold Schwarzenegger is joining Sylvester Stallone for the thriller “The Tomb.”

The filmmakers said Wednesday that Schwarzenegger has signed on to star alongside Stallone in the prison-break adventure.

Schwarzenegger previously had a cameo in Stallone’s action hit “The Expendables” and also appears in its upcoming sequel.

“The Tomb” will feature Schwarzenegger as an inmate opposite Stallone, who plays the designer of a master prison forced to escape from his own jailhouse. “The Tomb” begins shooting in Louisiana this spring.

Schwarzenegger is just finishing work on “The Last Stand,” his first starring role since returning to acting after serving as California’s governor.

Ghost Rider Does Decent Business At Places



Monday 20th February 2012 14.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network



Ghost Rider Act Of Vengeance managed decent business at places over the weeeknd. The film did pretty well out outside the big cities. UP, Rajasthan, CP Berar and CI all had reasonable figures. Basically the numbers were decent in centres where action works wells and single screens also did pretty well.



The film did better in its dubbed form than its English version which is not the norm for a Hollywood film.



The weekend business including its English and dubbed forms was around 4.75 crore nett which is a reasonably number as it was not a heavily promoted Hollywood event film.

http://geektyrant.com/storage/0999-post-images/terminator2.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1329857 912673
Two years ago, the Terminator franchise was in deep trouble. After the failure of Terminator Salvation, the rights to the series itself were tied up in legal limbo as lethal as the Judgment Day warzones. While studios like Sony Pictures and Lionsgate were bidding to own the post-apocalyptic action-adventure films, Arkansas film distribution center Hannover House decided to bypass the entire auction mess and go ahead and announce their own Terminator film: the 3D CGI-animated reboot Terminator 3000.


http://geektyrant.com/storage/0999-post-images/t3000.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1329858166313
The CEO of Hannover House, Eric Parkinson, had decades earlier served as the CEO of Hemdale Home Video, the video distribution center that handled the home video release of the original 1984 James Cameron film The Terminator. Parkinson believed that his new company still retained some rights to the original film and took the opportunity to annonce their own new film. The film (which was aiming for a PG-13 rating) would be centered around the characters introduced in the original film (i.e. Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese, and The Terminator). Eventually, the company in charge of selling the Terminator rights, hedge fund Pacificor, sent this message to Hannover House:

Please be advised that developing, producing, marketing or in any other way utilising characters and situations which are part of the Terminator franchise infringes upon and interferes with Pacificor's ownership rights.
Apparently, that has not stopped Hannover House's plans for Terminator 3000. Fansite TheArnoldFans.com managed to contact Parkinson and ask about the project. Parkinson surprisingly confirmed the film was still in development with Annapurna Films (the current owner of the Terminator rights):

It’s in the time being in the hands of Megan Ellison and her Annapurna Productions, whether or not they want to proceed. We reached out to them, communicated with her council and expressed our outline with the basic story structure with the proposed principal creative team and how it can be financed and how Annapurna Productions can make a lot of money with upfront licensing. But there are issues at play that I am not privy to. I think that most people are aware of how long this ticking bomb that this Terminator licensing exists before it goes back to James Cameron.


http://geektyrant.com/storage/0999-post-images/terminator2face.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=132 9860250463
Of course, one of the biggest detractions from Terminator Salvation was the lack of Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger (his digitally-scanned face had appeared on a T-800 prototype for a brief moment in Salvation). Although Schwarzenegger is too old to believably play a powerful cyborg, an animated film would be an interesting way of having Schwarzenegger reprise his most famous role. Parkinson claims that he has communicated with Schwarzenegger:

I had the opportunity to talk about it with Arnold at the MidCOM Market, when they announced his proposed cartoon series (The Governator). So I was there and he remembered me from Hemdale and I told him, I am still trying to develop an animated thing (T3K), but that’s about when the bad news came out. But my feeling is, he is and will always be one of the biggest stars in the world. I think he’d do the voice of the T-800 in this proposed Terminator 3000. We’re excited about it, and we think it makes perfect sense and with all due respect to Arnold, I think this would be another great and quick way for him to get another movie out with just a short time in a recording studio."


http://geektyrant.com/storage/T3Redemption.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=132986 1051602
How Arnold will appear in the film was also discussed:

[We] can create a character of him in his absolute peak. What we have in mind is something very similar to what Cameron utilized in Avatar in that we would use motion capture to create the base files of the bulk performers, including The Terminator. But yeah, it would be more of a 3D style motion capture proposed to live actors.
The most important aspect of Terminator 3000 is the story, and while Parkinson is still mute on story details, he says that all is being done to craft a well-made Terminator film:

We have a good outline. We have a great story, and we potentially don’t want to turn it into a script now, because there’s going to be some creative input and we don’t want to paint ourselves into a corner and say, no, we envision it a different way. But we’ve got a pretty good framework for what we think will work. Who knows if this concept fits their overall plan for the franchise? Personally, I think it’s kicks-ass and would be a boost to the Terminator brand by introducing a new generation of viewers.


http://geektyrant.com/storage/terminator2%201.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=132 9861471768
While personally I'm not too crazy about another PG-13 Terminator film, a motion-capture Terminator does appeal to me. If they can somehow get their hands on similar mo-cap technology (which would be crazy expensive), it sounds like it would work. Would you be glad to see Arnold back?

Pop star Lady Gaga's cameo in 'Men In Black 3'

New York: 'Men In Black' star Will Smith has confirmed that pop superstar Lady Gaga has a cameo role in the third instalment of the film. The 43-year-old actor, who reprises the role of Agent J in the comedy sci-fi movie, has confirmed the 'Marry The Night' singer is one of a number of stars to appear in the film, reported Huffington Post.
"We have a couple of celebrities cameos, but I cannot reveal who they are. We must keep it a surprise that Lady Gaga appears," Smith said.
Tommy Lee Jones will be returning to the film, alongside new stars Josh Brolin and Emma Thompson.

Boxer Mike Tyson, legendary star Betty White and singer and 'X Factor' judge Nicole Scherzinger are among the other celebrities believed to be taking part in the film, which sees the lead characters head back to the 60s.
Gaga has not previously had a movie role, but is believed to be wanted by Quentin Tarantino for a role in a future 'Kill Bill' movie, and has shown her talent in her music videos, some of which have been up to 14 minutes long.

http://s3.amazonaws.com/bo-assets/production/tiny_mce_photos/21259/original/johncarterreview.pngIt's Taylor Kitsch's season. Just passing 30, this heartthrob has made his biggest splash playing Tim Riggins in TV's Friday Night Lights and now steals the show from CG aliens, BBC mini-stars and this generation's answer to Xena Warrior Princess. A surprisingly convincing Civil War cavalryman, Kitsch's John Carter loses everything to become an unwelcome prospector and then get magicked onto "Barsoom," (a.k.a. Mars). There, John Carter of Earth meets the Princess of Mars and baddy Mark Strong (resembling a reject from Dark City) to lead many nations and two species into battle for a vaguely identified "freedom." All this while Ciaran Hinds shows too much belly and Willem Dafoe voices a four-armed green alpha Martian. It's got the schmaltz and grandeur of the 80s Clash of the Titans but little of the warm wonder that made that spectacle such an addiction. The seasoned cast are remarkable with their stentorian proclamations of gobbledygook (in King's English, of course) but the spectacle is just a massive event that passes you by—for all its gloss and expenditure, it's missing heart, which is a surprise because it was directed by Andrew Stanton, the man who transformed a near-featureless CG robot named Wall-E into the heart wrenching Chaplin surrogate of tomorrow's distended dystopia. Based on the 1912 serial by Edgar Rice Burroughs that spawned like twenty reprisals, Carter's graphic novel pedigree will earn those pre-fab fans with easy appeal, but may not leave them happy.
Predictably brusque and solitary, John Carter is a down-on-his-luck prospector: we don't know he's a highly desirable cavalryman until a blonde Bryan Cranston seeks him out and orders his henchmen to wrestle Carter to the ground. Thereafter, multiple fast cuts move him from an outpost, to an office to a holding cell as quickly and nonsensically as the cut that drops him from an Arizona cave to the sand dunes of Mars. After shaking off the confusion, he learns there are some major advantages to being an earthling on this new planet: particularly, brutish strength and a superhuman capacity to jump great distances. He was valuable on earth, but on Mars he's a mini-god! He's found on the day a community of 12-foot, four armed monsties (led by Willem Dafoe) retrieve their hatchlings from a sand nest. John is spared from death and thrown in with the green slimeballs for cultural indoctrination—he emerges all abs and tunic, magically able to understand the natives, though some words (crucial ones, like Barsoom) remain beyond the reach of translation. It's a world where technology and faith are equally revered and indivisible and where a master race of morphing watchmen manipulate the fates to match the agenda of "The goddess" we'll never meet.
Mark Strong, in a metacomment on his career, plays the head of a trio of morphing men—they become people much in the same way Agent Smith does in The Matrix, but the result is less menacing and more comical, since the morphers interim costume is a frosty, high necked robe (while the rest of Mars dons beach wear), and Mark Strong didn't need help perfecting that cue ball look. The film's biggest (and saddest) crime is malaise—it's not that John Carter doesn't care about what it's doing, it just can't make us care, even though the magnitude of every event, conflict and emotion is as melodramatic as its Victorian roots. Since John Carter first appeared in 1912, one presumes that whatever oddities this story invented may well have been original at the time, but after so many remixes and reinventions of serial content, this "original" just looks like a desperate mash up of curios mined more usefully and intriguingly elsewhere. Tragic, really. While I'm all for excavating bedrock in a field as overexploited as serials/comics, this one didn't reach origin, it just reviewed rubble. And that rubble was showy but even it's made of used parts.

THE AVENGERS Trailer Set a Record with 13.7 Million Views! (http://geektyrant.com/news/2012/3/3/the-avengers-trailer-set-a-record-with-137-million-views.html)

http://geektyrant.com/storage/2011-post-images/Avengers-Poster322012.jpeg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=13307 34766172
The Avengers did it again! Within a 24 hour time period the latest and greatest Avengers trailer was viewed on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/) 13.7 million times! This shatters the previous record which was The Avengers Super Bowl spot, which had over 10 million views. I've watched it about 27 times already myself, and I think I'll go ahead and watch it again. While I'm at it, you might as well do the same thing. It can't hurt by adding a little more awesomeness to your day.
Do you think The Avengers has the ability to beat Avatar at the box office becoming the highest grossing film ever made?
Here's the official press release:
Marvel Studios announced today that its new trailer for this summer's most highly anticipated movie, "Marvel's The Avengers," has been viewed over 13.7 million times in the first 24 hours of its debut, setting a new record for the most viewed trailer on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/) (iTunes Movie Trailers (http://www.apple.com/trailers)) and the iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/) Trailers app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ipod+touch&x=0&y=0).
The new trailer, unveiled Wednesday, February 29, exclusively on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/), gives fans an exciting look at "Marvel's The Avengers"—an action adventure of a lifetime—based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series "The Avengers," first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since.

Weekend Report: 'The Lorax' Defeats Disappointing 'John Carter'

by Ray Subers (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/authors/?id=11&p=.htm)
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/image2/johncarterofmars_JCOM_double_ape_still_6k_grd06.00 001.jpg (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/gotogallery.php?rid=37089)John Carter

March 11, 2012

After months upon months of box office speculation, John Carter (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=johncarterofmars.htm) finally opened and as expected was a huge disappointment. The mega-budget sci-fi epic wasn't even able to unseat The Lorax (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lorax.htm), which held first place for the second-straight weekend. The other openers, Silent House (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=silenthouse.htm) and A Thousand Words (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=athousandwords.htm), also performed poorly on a weekend where the Top 12 earned an estimated $123.35 million (up just five percent from last year).

The Lorax fell 44 percent to an estimated $39.1 million. The movie held about as well as Horton Hears a Who! (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hortonhearsawho.htm) (45 percent), and a bit worse than Despicable Me (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=despicableme.htm) (42 percent). On Sunday, The Lorax is expected to pass The Vow (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=vow.htm) to become 2012's highest-grossing movie at $122 million.

John Carter opened to an estimated $30.6 million from 3,749 locations. That's lower than practically any similar movie, beginning with those that came out around the same time of year. It was obviously way off from 300 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=300.htm) ($70.9 million) and Watchmen (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=watchmen.htm) ($55.2 million)—what's more concerning, though, is that it was even a tad below 10,000 B.C. (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=10000bc.htm) ($35.9 million) and Battle: Los Angeles (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=battlelosangeles.htm) ($35.6 million), both of which were modest movies in comparison.

Among past Mouse House franchise attempts, John Carter isn't looking so good either. Back in 2003, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=piratesofthecaribbean.htm) debuted to $46.6 million, or the equivalent of over $60 million. Tron Legacy (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=tron2.htm) opened to $44 million in December, which is a month with notoriously low openings (the movie ultimately closed with four times as much, a fate that's unlikely for John Carter). One very minor bright spot is that the opening was slightly above that of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=princeofpersia.htm) ($30.1 million), but with 3D and IMAX surcharges John Carter even lagged behind that dud in initial attendance.

Disney's marketing department has been beat up on pretty good for the lackluster John Carter campaign, and to their credit the movie doesn't really lend itself to an easy sell. Still, making the movie is the responsibility of production, and selling the movie is the responsibility of marketing, and in that regard they clearly failed.

The movie is called John Carter, but aside from the fact that he can jump far and looks good without a shirt on, what else did commercials really convey about the title character? Also, what was John Carter doing in this desert landscape occupied by tall green men, aside from fighting giant furry white creatures? If the characters don't seem interesting, and the stakes are low (or poorly explained), it doesn't really matter how much money the movie cost or how many advertisements are run—audiences are just not going to show up.

For whatever reason, the marketing mainly ignored the movie's central romance, and as a result it paid dearly with women, who represented just 37 percent of the opening weekend audience. Crowds also skewed slightly older (59 percent over the age of 25), and they awarded the movie a solid "B+" CinemaScore. 3D presentations accounted for 64 percent of the gross, and included within that figure was a very high 16 percent from IMAX 3D showings.

Around-the-World Roundup: 'John Carter' Shows Some Strength Overseas

March 11, 2012

Coinciding with its disappointing domestic debut, John Carter (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=johncarterofmars.htm) performed a bit better in its overseas opening this weekend. The movie grossed an estimated $70.6 million from 51 territories, which included all major markets aside from China and Japan.

At $17.5 million, John Carter scored the fourth-highest debut in Russian box office history. It did do solid business throughout the Asian Pacific marketplace as well—its biggest openings there were in South Korea ($3.9 million) and Australia ($3.4 million).

Otherwise, though, the numbers were fairly unremarkable. In Europe, the movie saw middling results in France ($3.8 million), the U.K. ($3.3 million), Germany ($3 million), Spain ($2.8 million) and Italy ($1.6 million). It was slightly better in Latin America ($2.9 million in Mexico and $2.4 million in Brazil, for example), but none of these figures suggest the movie is in for blockbuster runs.

Considering China and Japan are the largest markets in the Asian Pacific region and have yet to open, John Carter could ultimately be in for a respectable final tally. Still, historical comparisons seem to suggest that the best case scenario is around $300 million overseas, which combined with its middling domestic performance isn't going to be nearly enough to put this one in the black.

Aside from John Carter, the foreign box office was pretty quiet this weekend. This Means War (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=thismeanwar.htm) added $9.4 million for a foreign total of $57 million. That brings the movie's worldwide (domestic plus foreign) figure to just over $100 million, and it still has Brazil, Mexico, France, Italy and Japan on the horizon.

Journey 2 grossed an estimated $9.2 million for an overseas total just over $200 million. The movie's top territory so far is China, where it's amassed an impressive $57.4 million.

After fading from the charts for a few weeks, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=sherlockholmes2.htm) reappeared thanks to a $3.7 million debut in Japan. That's nearly double the opening of the first Sherlock movie, and brings the sequel's foreign total to $335.6 million. At $522 million worldwide, Sherlock 2 is only a few days away from passing the original Sherlock's $524 million total.

India's Slumdog child star bags role with Hopkins

(File Image) Rubina Ali - Agencies
An Indian girl who was plucked from poverty to act in the Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire is to star in a new film with Hollywood legend Anthony Hopkins, her manager said on Wednesday.

Rubina Ali, now 13, will feature in Lord Owen's Lady, a love story about a young Welsh nobleman and an Indian woman, with filming due to start in September this year in Britain and India.

"Rubina had signed the project one and a half years back. The producers have now informed us that she will shoot for about three weeks in Shimla (northern India), Wales and London," Dubey told from Mumbai.

Rubina, who was picked from the Mumbai slums to play the role of young Latika in the 2008 hit Slumdog Millionaire by director Danny Boyle, will be paid 'more than 20,000 pounds ($31,000)' for her second international project.

She was just eight when she appeared in the rags-to-riches blockbuster, which won eight Academy Awards in 2009. Her journey from a Mumbai slum to Hollywood red carpet made her famous around the world.

The teenager has since had her share of problems, following ugly family fights over her income and a fire in her congested Mumbai slum that destroyed her family's tin-roofed shack.

Rubina has since moved to a new flat in the upmarket Bandra area of the city.

As well as Hopkins, the Welsh-born star of Silence of the Lambs, her new film project is also reportedly set to feature former Welsh rugby player Gavin Henson.

Weekend Report: Audiences Report to '21 Jump Street'

by Ray Subers (http://boxofficemojo.com/authors/?id=11&p=.htm)
http://boxofficemojo.com/image2/21jumpstreet_DF-00025.jpg (http://boxofficemojo.com/gotogallery.php?rid=37270)21 Jump Street

March 18, 2012

With its broadly-appealing premise, popular lead actors and well-executed marketing campaign, 21 Jump Street (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=21jumpstreet.htm) cruised in to first place at the box office this weekend ahead of two-time winner The Lorax (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lorax.htm). Meanwhile, John Carter (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=johncarterofmars.htm) crashed in its second outing, and Casa De Mi Padre (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=casademipadre.htm) cracked the Top 10 despite opening in less than 400 locations. With only one major new release, though, this appears to be the first weekend of 2012 that will see a year-over-year decline.

21 Jump Street opened to an estimated $35 million from 3,121 locations. That tops Jonah Hill (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=jonahhill.htm)'s Superbad (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=superbad.htm) ($33.05 million) for highest opening ever for a comedy set in high school. Also, with the exception of Jackass 3-D (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=jackass3d.htm), 21 Jump Street had the top opening for an R-rated comedy outside of the Summer (May-August).

The action comedy also compares well against other TV adaptations from the past decade. It wound up slightly below Get Smart (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=getsmart.htm) ($38.7 million) and S.W.A.T. (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=swat.htm) ($37.1 million), but it was higher than The Dukes of Hazzard (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=dukesofhazzard.htm) ($30.7 million), Starsky and Hutch (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=starskyandhutch.htm) ($28.1 million), Miami Vice (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=miamivice.htm) ($25.7 million) and The A-Team (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=ateam.htm) ($25.7 million).

The marketing for 21 Jump Street was a textbook example of how to sell a movie properly. Early and often, the trailers and commercials clearly laid out the premise, defined the main characters and unleashed a solid number of jokes. It didn't hurt that the movie starred likeable actors Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=channingtatum.htm), and that it was actually pretty good—it generated lots of buzz from word-of-mouth screenings held around the country over the past few months, and it was also well-received by critics (87 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes).

The audience was 53 percent male, which is a fairly low number for an action comedy and suggests that Channing Tatum probably helped draw more women to the theater than would otherwise have attended. Half of the audience was under 25 years of age, and that group awarded the movie an "A" CinemaScore (though across all audience members the movie received a more lukewarm "B" score).

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax fell 41 percent to an estimated $22.8 million in its third weekend. So far, the animated hit has earned $158.4 million, which is more than the final tally of Horton Hears a Who! (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hortonhearsawho.htm) ($154.5 million). Through 17 days, the movie is only trailing Despicable Me (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=despicableme.htm) by around $3 million, and it looks like a foregone conclusion that The Lorax will wind up finishing with over $200 million.

Coming off its disappointing $30.2 million opening last weekend, there was still a chance that John Carter would hold up in the long-run and close above $100 million. That hope was all-but-extinguished this weekend, as the movie plummeted 55 percent to an estimated $13.5 million. It has now earned $53.2 million, which trails nearly all comparable titles including Prince of Persia (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=princeofpersia.htm) and 10,000 B.C. (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=10000bc.htm).

Project X (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=projectx2011.htm) succumbed to direct competition from 21 Jump Street this weekend—the found footage party comedy fell 64 percent to just over $4 million. Through 10 days, the movie has made $48.1 million.

A Thousand Words (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=athousandwords.htm) eased 39 percent to an estimated $3.75 million. That's a much better drop than Silent House (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=silenthouse.htm), which was off 69 percent to $2.1 million. The two movies have now made a paltry $12.1 million and $10.6 million, respectively.

Will Ferrell (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=willferrell.htm)'s Spanish-language action comedy Casa De Mi Padre debuted in ninth place with an estimated $2.2 million despite only playing at 382 locations. That's not a great start, but it's also a lot better than it could have been given the language barrier and the mild marketing push from Lionsgate/Pantelion. The audience was 51 percent male and 68 percent Hispanic, and Lionsgate is planning to add 25 to 30 new markets (50 or so theaters) in the coming weeks.

Friends with Kids (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=friendswithkids.htm) expanded to 640 theaters but fell 26 percent to an estimated $1.5 million. The romantic comedy has made $4.23 million through 10 days.

With an estimated $840,000 from 254 locations, Jeff, Who Lives at Home (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=jeffwholivesathome.htm) fell pretty firmly in to the underachiever category in its opening. For a solid comparison, the Duplass Brothers' last movie Cyrus (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=cyrus.htm) earned $1.28 million from only 200 locations in its fourth weekend in theaters.

Nicolas Cage (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=nicolascage.htm) continued to drift further toward irrelevance this weekend. His latest action thriller, Seeking Justice (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=seekingjustice.htm), opened to just $260,000 from 231 locations for a terrible per-theater average of $1,126.

Weekend Report: 'The Hunger Games' Devours $155 Million

by Ray Subers (http://boxofficemojo.com/authors/?id=11&p=.htm)
http://boxofficemojo.com/image2/hungergames_18_300dpi.jpg (http://boxofficemojo.com/gotogallery.php?rid=37265)The Hunger Games

March 25, 2012

The odds were definitely in The Hunger Games (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hungergames.htm) favor this weekend: the big screen adaptation of the immensely popular young adult novel opened to an enormous estimated $155 million, which ranks third all-time (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/weekends/) behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=harrypotter72.htm) ($169.2 million) and The Dark Knight (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=darkknight.htm) ($158.4 million). Remarkably, it debuted above all of the Twilight (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/franchises/chart/?id=twilight.htm) movies, and it also topped Alice in Wonderland (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=aliceinwonderland10.htm) ($116.1 million) for highest debut ever for a non-sequel.

Among all the impressive Hunger Games statistics, two lesser-discussed ones are worth highlighting. First, the movie had an incredible hold on Saturday—it only fell 25 percent to $51 million, which ranks second all-time (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/days/f-th.htm?page=Sat&p=.htm)behind Spider-Man 3 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=spiderman3.htm) ($51.3 million). This suggests that demand for The Hunger Games exists across a wide array of moviegoers, and isn't just rooted in the type of rabid fans that drove the front-loaded openings for recent Harry Potter and Twilight movies.

The other crazy statistic is one that should result in a noteworthy spike in champagne sales in Santa Monica, California this week—after just over two days in theaters, The Hunger Games has already passed Fahrenheit 9/11 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=fahrenheit911.htm) ($119.2 million) to become Lionsgate's highest-grossing movie ever (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/studio/chart/?view2=allmovies&view=company&studio=lionsgate.htm).

Knowing that they had something special on their hands, the company went all-in with one of their most expensive productions ever (just under $80 million after tax rebates). Lionsgate followed that up with a nicely targeted marketing effort that consistently built up anticipation until it reached a fevered level over the past month. Aside from just reaching out to fans of the book, though, they went a step further by clearly outlining the high stakes and making the movie seem accessible and interesting to a broad range of potential moviegoers.

While a majority of the audience for The Hunger Games were women (61 percent), the fact that it did have some appeal to men as well surely helped it get as high as it did. In comparison, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=breakingdawn.htm)'s crowd was 80 percent female. The Hunger Games audience also skewed slightly older (56 percent were 25 years of age and up), and they awarded the movie a strong "A" CinemaScore.

On 268 IMAX screens, The Hunger Games grossed an estimated $10.6 million this weekend. That's roughly $40,000 per screen, which is a very impressive figure for a 2D movie that doesn't include any footage shot in IMAX.

Thanks to the mammoth movie in first place, the Top 12 earned an estimated $206.9 million this weekend. That's the ninth-highest aggregated weekend ever, and first all-time in the month of March.

While The Hunger Games was obviously the biggest draw this weekend, there were other movies in theaters as well. 21 Jump Street (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=21jumpstreet.htm) took second place with an estimated $21.3 million, which is off 41 percent from last weekend. Through 10 days in theaters, the movie has earned $71.05 million, which is a bit ahead of Jonah Hill (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=jonahhill.htm)'s Superbad (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=superbad.htm) through the same point.

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lorax.htm) dipped 43 percent to $13.1 million in its fourth weekend in theaters. With a total of $177.3 million, it's now lagging behind Despicable Me (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=despicableme.htm) by $13 million; regardless, it still looks like a lock to close with over $200 million.

This may have been the weekend where John Carter (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=johncarterofmars.htm) officially transitioned from domestic disappointment to disaster. The movie plummeted 63 percent to just over $5 million, bringing its 17-day total to just $62.3 million (or less than The Hunger Games made on opening day). It is playing better overseas, but it's still not at the levels needed to really ease the pain over at the Mouse House.

Act of Valor (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=actofvalor.htm) rounded out the Top Five this weekend with $1.95 million. The combat flick, which features active-duty Navy SEALs, has earned a very solid $65.9 million so far.

Abortion drama October Baby (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=octoberbaby.htm) opened in 390 locations and wound up in eighth place with an estimated $1.7 million. Further down the chart, Indonesian action movie The Raid: Redemption (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=raid.htm) scored $221,000 from 14 locations for a solid per-theater average of $15,786.

In comparison, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=breakingdawn.htm)'s crowd was 80 percent female. The Hunger Games audience also skewed slightly older (56 percent were 25 years of age and up), and they awarded the movie a strong "A" CinemaScore.

On 268 IMAX screens, The Hunger Games grossed an estimated $10.6 million this weekend. That's roughly $40,000 per screen, which is a very impressive figure for a 2D movie that doesn't include any footage shot in IMAX.

Thanks to the mammoth movie in first place, the Top 12 earned an estimated $206.9 million this weekend. That's the ninth-highest aggregated weekend ever, and first all-time in the month of March.

While The Hunger Games was obviously the biggest draw this weekend, there were other movies in theaters as well. 21 Jump Street (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=21jumpstreet.htm) took second place with an estimated $21.3 million, which is off 41 percent from last weekend. Through 10 days in theaters, the movie has earned $71.05 million, which is a bit ahead of Jonah Hill (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=jonahhill.htm)'s Superbad (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=superbad.htm) through the same point.

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lorax.htm) dipped 43 percent to $13.1 million in its fourth weekend in theaters. With a total of $177.3 million, it's now lagging behind Despicable Me (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=despicableme.htm) by $13 million; regardless, it still looks like a lock to close with over $200 million.

This may have been the weekend where John Carter (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=johncarterofmars.htm) officially transitioned from domestic disappointment to disaster. The movie plummeted 63 percent to just over $5 million, bringing its 17-day total to just $62.3 million (or less than The Hunger Games made on opening day). It is playing better overseas, but it's still not at the levels needed to really ease the pain over at the Mouse House.

Act of Valor (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=actofvalor.htm) rounded out the Top Five this weekend with $1.95 million. The combat flick, which features active-duty Navy SEALs, has earned a very solid $65.9 million so far.

Abortion drama October Baby (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=octoberbaby.htm) opened in 390 locations and wound up in eighth place with an estimated $1.7 million. Further down the chart, Indonesian action movie The Raid: Redemption (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=raid.htm) scored $221,000 from 14 locations for a solid per-theater average of $15,786.

Around-the-World Roundup: 'Wrath' Opens a Bit Better Overseas

by Ray Subers (http://boxofficemojo.com/authors/?id=11&p=.htm)
http://boxofficemojo.com/image2/clashofthetitans2_WOTT-FP-039.jpg (http://boxofficemojo.com/gotogallery.php?rid=37449)Wrath of the Titans

April 1, 2012

Wrath of the Titans (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=clashofthetitans2.htm) easily took first place at the overseas box office this weekend, though most of its major debuts don't compare well against those of Clash of the Titans (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=clashofthetitans10.htm). Meanwhile, The Hunger Games (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hungergames.htm) held much better in foreign markets than it did domestically, and The Pirates! Band of Misfits (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=pirates12.htm) opened in a handful of territories nearly a month ahead of its U.S. release.

Wrath of the Titans earned $78 million from 60 markets this weekend, which added up to a worldwide debut of $112.2 million. Its top market was Russia, where its $14 million debut was an improvement over Clash of the Titans's $11.8 million. However, Wrath was notably off from its predecessor across the remainder of its major territories (with the exclusion of China, where data is not yet available). It wasn't too far off in Mexico ($5 million vs. $7.2 million) and Brazil ($3.9 million vs. $4.2 million), but it dropped over 50 percent in the United Kingdom ($3.5 million), France ($3.3 million), Germany ($2.7 million), Spain ($2.6 million), Australia ($2.1 million), and Italy ($1.7 million).

The movie was released in all major markets aside from Japan, where it will open on April 21. Even with school holidays coming up in Europe, these initial figures suggest that Wrath of the Titans has little chance of matching Clash's $330 million foreign haul.

Without any significant openings, The Hunger Games fell 41 percent to an estimated $34.8 million. It held on to first place ahead of Wrath of the Titans in Australia ($5.1 million), the U.K. ($4.3 million) and Germany ($3.3 million). Its overseas total has now reached $113.9 million (or less than half of its domestic total), and it's now the highest-grossing 2012 movie on a worldwide basis with $364.9 million.

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lorax.htm) had its best weekend yet with an estimated $14.5 million, though that's more a result of opening in four major markets and less because of any particularly impressive performance. The movie had fine openings in Mexico ($2.7 million), Australia ($2.5 million), Brazil ($2.2 million) and Spain ($1.7 million), and all of these were higher than Horton Hears a Who! (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hortonhearsawho.htm)'s respective debuts. Still, those grosses are on the low end for animated fare, and it suggests that Dr. Seuss movies aren't quite as popular overseas as they are domestically. The Lorax has now made $37.7 million in foreign markets, and still has 25 territories left to open over the next five months.

Four weeks ahead of its U.S. debut, Aardman Animation's The Pirates! Band of Misfits opened in 12 territories and earned $7.8 million. A little under half of that came in the U.K. ($3.6 million), though it also reached France ($1.6 million) and Germany ($1.3 million). None of those are particularly strong starts, but they were substantially higher than those of Arthur Christmas (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=arthurchristmas.htm) (though holiday movies typically open lower but hold better).

After three weeks of solid overseas numbers, John Carter (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=johncarterofmars.htm) plummeted 72 percent to just $6.2 million in its fourth weekend. The movie has now made $188.3 million overseas, and the only major opening on the horizon is in Japan.

Grosses are not currently available for The Intouchables (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=intouchables.htm).

Other Notables - Weekend Gross - Gross-to-Date (in millions)
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=bestexoticmarigoldhotel.htm) - $6.3 - $43.8

Weekend Report: 'Wrath,' 'Mirror' No Match for 'Hunger Games'

by Ray Subers (http://boxofficemojo.com/authors/?id=11&p=.htm)
http://boxofficemojo.com/image2/hungergames_15_300dpi.jpg (http://boxofficemojo.com/gotogallery.php?rid=37262)The Hunger Games

April 2, 2012

Box office phenomenon The Hunger Games (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hungergames.htm) was once again the undisputed champ this weekend, as it had little difficulty fending off unimpressive fantasy flicks Wrath of the Titans (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=clashofthetitans2.htm) and Mirror Mirror (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=untitledsnowwhite.htm). With that strong holdover performance, and two newcomers combining for over $50 million, the Top 12 earned $140.4 million (a 23 percent improvement over the same period last year).

The Hunger Games fell 61.6 percent to $58.55 million this weekend. That ranks as the eighth-highest second weekend ever, though it fell behind Avatar (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=avatar.htm), Spider-Man (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=spiderman.htm) and Alice in Wonderland (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=aliceinwonderland10.htm) among non-sequels. Still, that drop was lighter than the decline for any of the Twilight (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/franchises/chart/?id=twilight.htm) movies that opened on a Friday including the first one, which lost 62.2 percent in its second weekend.

The sci-fi book adaptation will pass $250 million on Monday, which will make it the seventh-fastest movie to ever reach that milestone (first among non-sequels). Through just 10 days in theaters, The Hunger Games has earned $248.5 million, and it could be on track for a final tally around $350 million.

Wrath of the Titans debuted in second place with $33.5 million. That's a little over half as much as Clash of the Titans (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=clashofthetitans10.htm) made on its opening weekend two years ago ($61.2 million), though there was fair reason to expect such a steep drop-off. Clash may have earned a ton of money, but two years later it's widely considered a misfire of epic proportions (it has a terrible 5.8 rating on IMDb, where users are fairly lenient on fantasy fare). The sequel's marketing essentially promised more of the same, with the main differences being the length of star Sam Worthington (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=samworthington.htm)'s hair and the substitution of a random fire monster in place of the more recognizable Kraken. Not surprisingly, that wasn't enough to get moviegoers to forget about Clash and to get excited about another trip to Ancient Greece.

Distributor Warner Bros. Pictures is reporting that the audience was 66 percent male and 55 percent over the age of 25, and they awarded the movie a decent "B+" CinemaScore. 3D presentations accounted for 65 percent of the gross; included within that figure is $4.7 million from IMAX (or 14 percent of the weekend tally).

2012's first Snow White movie Mirror Mirror opened to $18.1 million from 3,603 theaters. That's a bit off from Bridge to Terabithia (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=bridgetoterabithia.htm) ($22.6 million) and The Spiderwick Chronicles (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=spiderwickchronicles.htm) ($19 million), though it's only half of Hop (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=ihop.htm)'s $37.5 million debut on the same pre-Easter weekend last year. The movie did at least crush past similarly-timed family movies Nim's Island (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=nimsisland.htm) ($13.2 million) and The Last Mimzy (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=mimzy.htm) ($10 million), but that's not exactly a resounding endorsement.

Mirror Mirror's slight underperformance can be attributed at least in part to a challenging release date. While the movie is geared toward 6-12 year-old girls and their parents, that's not a huge market segment. To really break out, it needed to reach a broader segment of women (teenagers and 20-somethings), and those moviegoers are still buying up tickets en masse for The Hunger Games. The movie could at least be in for a solid multiple, though, considering nearly all children are getting some time off this week for the Easter holiday and there's nothing targeting the same group until at least Chimpanzee (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=chimpanzee.htm) on April 20 (The Three Stooges (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=threestooges.htm) is also rated PG, but it's hard to imagine young girls getting worked up over it).

Relativity reports that 60 percent of the audience was families with children 12-and-under, and 74 percent of those children were girls. Ethnically, the audience break-down was 52 percent Caucasian and 20 percent Hispanic, and they gave the movie a "B+" CinemaScore.

21 Jump Street (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=21jumpstreet.htm) dipped just 28 percent to $14.8 million this weekend. So far, the TV adaptation has earned an impressive $92.9 million, and it's on its way to crossing $100 million sometime next weekend.

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lorax.htm) rounded out the Top Five with $7.8 million. Remarkably, it only fell 41 percent from last weekend despite facing direct competition from Mirror Mirror. So far, the Illumination Entertainment production has grossed $189.3 million, and it will likely pass $200 million by the end of Easter weekend.

John Carter (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=johncarterofmars.htm) plummeted 60 percent to just over $2 million, and has now made a paltry $66.2 million at the domestic box office. Unfortunately, international has slowed down substantially as well, and the mega-budget sci-fi epic will likely wind up grossing less than $300 million worldwide.

After three weeks in very limited release, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=salmonfishing.htm) expanded to 483 locations and took seventh place with $1.27 million. The movie has now made $3.17 million, and distributor CBS Films does have plans to roll it out to more markets in coming weeks.

Controversial documentary Bully (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=bully2012.htm) opened to $116,472 from five theaters for a solid $23,294 per-theater average. That's a fine figure, but it's going to take a lot more than that for the movie's box office grosses to live up to the ridiculous amount of coverage it's received over the past month.

Just watched Titanic 3D. Gripped by a surge of nostalgia. Still totally works. Still cheesy in the same places but how do you not choke up?

Titanic 3D: Such a terrific screenplay. Cameron knew exactly which buttons to push. 3D or not, the film was always meant for the big screen.

Friday Report: 'Hunger Games' Holds Off 'American Reunion,' 'Titanic 3D'

by Ray Subers (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/authors/?id=11&p=.htm)
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/image2/hungergames_SC_D12_03260.jpg (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/gotogallery.php?rid=34360)The Hunger Games

April 7, 2012

American Reunion (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americanreunion.htm) had a fine opening on Friday, though it didn't compare favorably with past entries in the series, and Titanic 3D (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=titanic3d.htm) continued to draw solid crowds following its Wednesday debut. Still, neither of those titles came very close to knocking off The Hunger Games (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hungergames.htm), which had little difficulty hanging on to first place for the third Friday in a row.

The Hunger Games fell a light 31 percent to an estimated $12.9 million on Friday. That's over twice as much as the third Fridays for any of the Twilight (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=twilight08.htm) movies, and is almost double that of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=harrypotter72.htm). The movie has now made $282.2 million, and will wind up in first place for the weekend with around $30 million (it will almost certainly pass $300 million on either Sunday on Monday).

American Reunion took second place on Friday with an estimated $9.2 million. That's notably lower than American Pie 2 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americanpie2.htm) ($16.5 million) and American Wedding (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americanwedding.htm) ($12.2 million), and is even a bit off from the first American Pie (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americanpie.htm) when adjusting for ticket price inflation. Still, it's on pace to finish the weekend with roughly $22 million, which isn't all that bad for a long-dormant comedy franchise.

After earning $8.4 million from mid-week showings, Titanic 3D added $7.14 million on Friday for a three-day total of $15.5 million. The Friday gross is less than that of the 3D re-releases for The Lion King (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lionking3d.htm) ($8.9 million) and Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=starwars3d.htm) ($8.6 million), though those movies were both much shorter and hadn't burned off any demand with a Wednesday release. Assuming attendance will take a serious hit on Easter Sunday, Titanic could end up with a five-day opening of around $25 million.

Wrath of the Titans (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=clashofthetitans2.htm) fell 56 percent to an estimated $5.43 million. In comparison, Clash of the Titans (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=clashofthetitans10.htm) lost 68 percent of its audience on its second Friday, though that's not an apples-to-apples comparison given the placement of Good Friday (it fell on Clash's opening day, but Wrath's second Friday). Regardless, Wrath has only earned $49.3 million through eight days, which is nowhere close to Clash's $91.9 million.

Mirror Mirror (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=untitledsnowwhite.htm) rounded out the Top Five with an estimated $4.6 million, which is off a tiny 21 percent from last Friday. The Snow White flick has now earned $30.05 million.

21 Jump Street (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=21jumpstreet.htm) also had a phenomenal hold—the Jonah Hill (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=jonahhill.htm)-Channing Tatum (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=channingtatum.htm) buddy cop comedy dipped 21 percent to an estimated $3.63 million. In the process, it passed $100 million, and it is still tracking ahead of Superbad (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=superbad.htm) through the same point.

Thanks to kids being out of school on Friday, Dr. Seuss' The Lorax (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lorax.htm) actually improved 11 percent to an estimated $2.3 million. That brings its total to $195.5 million, and it should hit the $200 million mark by Monday or Tuesday.

Friday Report: 'Hunger Games' Holds Off 'American Reunion,' 'Titanic 3D'

by Ray Subers (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/authors/?id=11&p=.htm)
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/image2/hungergames_SC_D12_03260.jpg (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/gotogallery.php?rid=34360)The Hunger Games

April 7, 2012

American Reunion (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americanreunion.htm) had a fine opening on Friday, though it didn't compare favorably with past entries in the series, and Titanic 3D (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=titanic3d.htm) continued to draw solid crowds following its Wednesday debut. Still, neither of those titles came very close to knocking off The Hunger Games (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hungergames.htm), which had little difficulty hanging on to first place for the third Friday in a row.

The Hunger Games fell a light 31 percent to an estimated $12.9 million on Friday. That's over twice as much as the third Fridays for any of the Twilight (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=twilight08.htm) movies, and is almost double that of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=harrypotter72.htm). The movie has now made $282.2 million, and will wind up in first place for the weekend with around $30 million (it will almost certainly pass $300 million on either Sunday on Monday).

American Reunion took second place on Friday with an estimated $9.2 million. That's notably lower than American Pie 2 (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americanpie2.htm) ($16.5 million) and American Wedding (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americanwedding.htm) ($12.2 million), and is even a bit off from the first American Pie (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americanpie.htm) when adjusting for ticket price inflation. Still, it's on pace to finish the weekend with roughly $22 million, which isn't all that bad for a long-dormant comedy franchise.

After earning $8.4 million from mid-week showings, Titanic 3D added $7.14 million on Friday for a three-day total of $15.5 million. The Friday gross is less than that of the 3D re-releases for The Lion King (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lionking3d.htm) ($8.9 million) and Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=starwars3d.htm) ($8.6 million), though those movies were both much shorter and hadn't burned off any demand with a Wednesday release. Assuming attendance will take a serious hit on Easter Sunday, Titanic could end up with a five-day opening of around $25 million.

Wrath of the Titans (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=clashofthetitans2.htm) fell 56 percent to an estimated $5.43 million. In comparison, Clash of the Titans (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=clashofthetitans10.htm) lost 68 percent of its audience on its second Friday, though that's not an apples-to-apples comparison given the placement of Good Friday (it fell on Clash's opening day, but Wrath's second Friday). Regardless, Wrath has only earned $49.3 million through eight days, which is nowhere close to Clash's $91.9 million.

Mirror Mirror (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=untitledsnowwhite.htm) rounded out the Top Five with an estimated $4.6 million, which is off a tiny 21 percent from last Friday. The Snow White flick has now earned $30.05 million.

The Avengers [2012] Movie Review

An Unstoppable Force of Awesomeness! All Hail The New King!, 12 April 2012

Author: krieg8814254 (http://www.imdb.com/user/ur5677923/comments) from United States

I have got to tell anyone who will listen that this is one of THE best adventure movies I've ever seen. It's almost impossible to convey how pumped I am now that I've seen it. I purposefully avoid hyping myself for movies because when expectations are too high, nothing seems to be able to reach them. I usually avoid the hype train whenever possible. That said, I was jacked to see this movie and was fully aboard the hype train. It couldn't be helped. So, I was certainly open to intense disappointment had this movie not been good. I'm so happy to report just the opposite has happened.

The only word I can think of to describe this movie is AWESOME. It's amazing work and everything I had hoped for and more. It's exceptional entertainment for the uninitiated but it has everything a fanboy could want to be sure. It has every little nuance of what a fanboy wants to see. One of the MANY things I loved was the tension and flat out conflict that arises between team members. It's not a two dimensional "team wonderful that bands together to fight crime ho ho ho." Most don't like each other at fist and there is so much texture to be played. That is great because so many of these characters are larger than life. They have egos and the big guns aren't used to working with other people or even playing by the rules. Stark, Thor and Banner all work "the other side of the fence" so to speak. Then there's the Widow, Hawkeye and Captain America who are used to following orders and playing within a command structure. They are all thrown together in a wonderful and, best of all, believable fashion. Again, more than I ever dreamed possible.

The entire cast really delivered. You needed more than just action actors or stunt doubles to play all these parts. The pathos is there but so are the timing and true deep performances. Look, I was missing Ed Norton as much as anyone on that hype train I talked about but I'm so happy to say that Mark Ruffalo won me over. I hope he's locked up for the long haul because we don't need any more changes. Three was the lucky number for movie Banners. Every other actor in Avnegers that we've seen before is BETTER than their previous incarnation (EVERY single one) with the possible exception of RDJ as Stark. He's great but it's hard to top his take on the character from the original Iron Man in an ensemble movie. I also have to fully disclose that I'm insanely attracted to Scarlett Johansson. I thought her Widow character was amazing but I'm definitely judging that through rose colored glasses. The character arcs that run there course during this film will surprise a lot of general audiences expecting nothing more than a Transformers type popcorn scarfdown.

I honestly don't want to give away ANY of the movie with this review because this is one film that needs every scene to be savored. Do yourself a favor and remain unspoiled. It's how I saw the movie (apart from what the trailers showed) and even though you're obviously reading this review, read no others with any kind of spoilers whatsoever. Experience the awesomeness for yourself. Avengers as a movie and as a team on screen is an unstoppable force. I'm just going to say, Hulk & Thor combination equals AWESOME and leave it at that. This movie defines MUST SEE.

Tarantino's 'Django Unchained': First Poster — Inspired By Internet Artists? (http://www.hollywood.com/news/Quentin_Tarantino_Django_Unchained_Poster/23784595)

Quentin Tarantino is a man of style. When he releases promotional material for his movies, he's not one to opt simply for an image of his leading man glaring stoically — he goes artsy. The director's upcoming Django Unchained has released its first official poster, which fits right into the Tarantino vibe...


http://images.hollywood.com/site/djangounchainedposter.jpg

...but that's not the only thing the poster fits into. Over the years, a mass of fan-made posters have accumulated in accordance with the past works of the beloved filmmaker. In 2011, a Django Unchained fan poster hit the Internet...


http://images.hollywood.com/site/nonminimaldjangounchained.jpg

...and the similarities between the two are hard to ignore. It looks as though Tarantino crafted his new poster as an homage to the work done by his devoted fanbase.

'Think Like a Man' takes over No. 1 from 'Hunger Games'



Think Like a Man thought like a spoiler this weekend, dethroning The Hunger Games after a month at the No. 1 perch.



Man, an adaptation of Steve Harvey's self-help book, scored $33 million, according to studio estimates from Hollywood.com.

The debut was more than twice what analysts expected. According to Rottentomatoes.com, 50% of critics liked it, though 86% of audiences gave it a thumbs-up.

The haul was plenty to take the top spot, ahead of the Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Lucky One, which also bested predictions with $22.8 million and second place.

Games dropped to third place after four consecutive weeks at No. 1. The film did $14.5 million, lifting its overall revenues to $356.9 million.

The documentary Chimpanzee took fourth place with a strong $10.2 million, followed by The Three Stooges with $9.2 million.

Final figures are due Monday.

The Avengers Set To Give Tezz Tough Fight
Thursday 26th April 2012 11.30 IST
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

The last few years has seen Hollywood films take better openings when they clashed with medium/small budget Hindi films but this week may be the first time that a Hollywood release gives a tough fight to a big Hindi film release.

Tezz is not an event Hindi film but considering its releasing on twice the number of screens as that of The Avengers it should come out on top comfortably but that may not be the case.

The early advance booking at multiplexes indicate that The Avengers will be first choice at many multiplexes especially the ones showing the film in 3D format and this will affect Tezz collections.


Tezz should still come out with higher first day collections due to the screen count but may not be at the level expected from a big film while The Avengers looks set for better occupancies than Tezz on day one.

In the Nizam circuit both The Avengers and Tezz will be hit by Telugu film Dammu which has a taken a huge advance in the that circuit.

http://im.rediff.com/movies/2012/apr/25avengers3.jpgRaja Sen writes The Avengers is an absolute blast.

Superheroes win.

The good versus evil mythology built on the bones of classic comic book legend needs for the right side to triumph, against seemingly insurmountable odds. Which is why when we walk into a comic book movie, no matter how formidable the foe initially seems -- no matter how humongous Mickey Rourke's [ Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=mickey+rourke) ] muscles and how many intelligent arms Alfred Molina [ Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=alfred+molina) ] has -- we always know he'll be licked by the end of it.

Which is where Joss Whedon's The Avengers truly scores.

The film isn't about the bad guys -- even though it has a captivatingly slimy villain -- but about an ambitious assemblage of larger-than-life superhero icons; heroes yet aglow from their own individual blockbusters totting up over $2 billion over the last few summers.
Men, in short, with preposterous identities, egos and issues with authority. And it is by wittily mining their invariably tempestuous dynamic that Whedon strikes comicbook gold.

The Earth is under attack -- from spurned Norse God Loki (played by a creepy Tom Hiddleston) -- and the eyepatch-wearing Nick Fury (an appropriately commanding Samuel L Jackson) decisively begins to put together a squad of superheroes equal to the task. Forever the man with a plan, Fury's been glimpsed in all the component blockbusters leading up to this one, speaking of an Avengers Initiative, the heist-master putting together his ace crew, step by slow-burn step. Those familiar with the books and recent Marvel movies have more than an inkling, but the rest need only know the basics -- -- and trust in the fact that the gents gathered here can spank an army apiece.

After they find their own groove, that is.
A film throwing as many one-liners as it does punches, The Avengers consists of the drily snappy Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), swiftly angered hammer-weilding God of thunder Thor (Chris Hemsworth), quaintly vintage Captain America (Chris Evans) and Robert Downey Jr's [ Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=robert+downey+jr) ] Tony Stark, that Iron Man treading on everyone's shoes with his serrated-edge sarcasm. Somewhere in the mix also lie Scarlett Johannson's redheaded Russian superspy Black Widow and Jeremy Renner's [ Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=jeremy+renner) ] impossibly good marksman Hawkeye, but while they too have their moments, they simply aren't super enough to trade quips with the big boys.

There is much to admire and to applaud, and all of it too well-written for a review to play spoiler. The words and the cast deliver, earning guffaws, gasps and wolf-whistles.

http://im.rediff.com/movies/2012/apr/25avengers4.jpgIt's Stark -- that Jack Sparrow [ Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=jack+sparrow) ] of superheroes -- who takes the obvious lead, literally poking Banner with a stick to bring out his big green alter ego, and making Shakespeare jabs at Thor, but despite his immense quotability, the film's genius lies in letting each icon get a rightful piece of the pie.

Cap A is positively irresistible when he, frozen from World War II, triumphantly catches on to a pop-culture reference (to 1939 classic The Wizard Of Oz), Thor is quick to retract sibling-love hearing of his half-brother's homicidal madness, and Ruffalo's Banner is an absolute masterstroke, an in-control scientist who strangely but perfectly seems almost proud of the beast within. The role has been played before by Eric Bana [ Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=eric+bana) ] and Edward Norton, but Ruffalo's Hulk is by far the truest to the character's spirit, and has a hilariously electrifying screen presence. (He is also responsible for the film's finest line, a two-word instruction given to him by Cap, one that will cause many a fangasm around the globe.)

Yet when the villain imperils the world, oneupmanship is instantly sacrificed as the Avengers do indeed assemble. Each member of the team finds a role and is ready for the banal as well as the big: in one brilliant scene, with every Avenger surrounded by volcanic chaos and striking more glamorous blows, Iron Man, the inevitable star of the piece, sees his task reduced to that of a welding job.

By the time the heroes arrange themselves into a unified force and take attack positions, Manhattan is being ravaged by gigantic alien vertebrae, skyline-crumblingly snaking through midtown. This is the cue for a long and ridiculously enjoyable action setpiece that -- while amplifying the ante for a big-screen 3D spectacle -- keeps things cheeky as it oscillates from Avenger to Avenger (once even in a breathlessly unbroken shot) each getting the job done in their own uniquely awesome way.

The Avengers is wall-to-wall action, executed with a fluid coherence we don't get to see in most superhero films, and yet what stays with you are the lines and, resultantly, the characters. As this big, meaty film -- this hero sandwich of a film, even -- winds down, Whedon makes us do something increasingly rare in these over-franchised times: root for a sequel.

The Avengers -- from ambition to scale to the way it justly balances each remarkable character -- is an absolute blast, and it's far easier to lose yourself than to find fault. It's the most spectacular superhero party of all time. And you're invited. Go smash.

B.O. update: 'Avengers' takes the lead, 'Tezz' dull


By Taran Adarsh, April 27, 2012 - 16:52 IST
http://images.bollywoodhungama.com/img/news/12/apr/tezz1.jpg The Hollywood biggie THE AVENGERS took the nation by storm by fetching one of the biggest starts for a Hollywood film. In fact, the film was the first choice of moviegoers across the country, overpowering its Hindi opponent TEZZ by a big margin. The Hindi biggie, TEZZ, had a 25% to 30% start at several screens, which came as a shock since the film boasts of an A-list cast and action-based films, generally, are known to start with a bang. However, the opening at single screens was much better.

Though the reports of TEZZ are decent, with its action scenes winning all-round praise, the film will now have to show a big jump in its business on Saturday and Sunday, if it has to leave a mark at the ticket window.

The Avengers Takes Excellent Opening



Friday 27th April 2012 12.00 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network



The Avengers has taken an excellent opening across the country of 80% plus. It was even 100% at some theatres. The film has been released on 800 screens in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu and all versions opened to excellent collections. In Bangalore the film has seen a phenomenal opening.



The all India first day collections of The Avengers will challenge the first day collections of Tezz even though the former is just a 800 screen release and the later a 2000 screen release. The Avengers may even surpass Tezz on day one.



The film will also challenge for the biggest Hollywood opening of all time in India which was Mission Impossible 4 released last December which had huge publicity in India.

Cast: Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L Jackson, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgard
Director: Joss Whedon
Comic book fans who’ve kept their eyes peeled to the Internet for every scrap of news since the film was first announced, will be delighted to know that The Avengers more than lives up to their tall expectations. The truth, in fact, is that even if you’re unfamiliar with the Marvel universe and the back-story of these superheroes, you’re still likely to find yourself cheering for the sheer spectacle that’s up on screen.
After successfully introducing movie-goers to Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, and Thor in previous films, the decision to get all these big guns firing as one was brave to say the least…given that each of them inhabits a different space, and comes with his own set of quirks and characteristics. But writer-director Joss Whedon, a lifelong Marvel fan, recognizes that challenge clearly, and uses exactly that to form the basis of his story – in order to come together to fight a common enemy, these superheroes must first sort out their own egos and differences.
That enemy, by the way, is Loki, the Asgardian demi-god who you might remember, was banished from the heavens at the end of Thor for his propensity to create inter-galactic mischief. The Avengers opens with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) stealing the Tesseract, a powerful energy source, with which he intends to open a portal to space to summon an alien army to help him enslave all mankind.
In response, Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), director of international peacekeeping agency SHIELD, gathers his best men: billionaire industrialist Tony Stark aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), supersoldier Steve Rogers aka Captain America (Chris Evans), god of thunder and Loki’s brother Thor (Chris Hemsworth), ace scientist and Hulk alter-ego Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), along with slinky Russian spy Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and expert marksman Clint Barton aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). Together they must work as a team to thwart Loki’s world-ending scheme…but there’s that small matter of fighting amongst each other to resolve first.
Director Joss Whedon maintains a cracking pace, switching deftly between spectacular action sequences, and witty interaction scenes between the characters. Expectedly, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man gets the best lines here, especially his clever putdowns to the others – to the red-caped Thor he asks, “Doth mother know you weareth her drapes?”, while to Banner he says: “I’m a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster.”
It’s particularly remarkable how Whedon ensures that the story remains rooted in the characters, without ever compromising on the punch-ups and the adrenaline-pumping set-pieces. The film’s third act for one, a thrilling alien-bashing finale on the streets of Manhattan, is pure fanboy wet-dream.
The performances are top-notch across the board, particularly from Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk far more sympathetically than in the two previous films that starred Eric Bana and Edward Norton as the angry green fellow. Ruffalo nails the almost precarious relationship between Dr Banner and his alter ego, and delivers plenty spontaneous laughs.
In the end, The Avengers isn’t just the ultimate spectacle, but also incredibly smart and surprisingly humorous. I’m going with four out of five for The Avengers. It raises the stakes for comic-book movies hereon… Batman and Spider-man, are you listening?
