    Next Sunday, we’re going to look back at this weekend as a heyday. I fully expect next weekend to be one of lowest-grossing weekends in many years.

  2. waterbucket says:

    Why can’t Spiderman 3 open already? That list looks like the Razzie nomination sheet.

  3. martindale says:

    Wow, even holdovers fell pretty hard this weekend.
    Will any movie gross more than $10 million next weekend? I don’t have access to any tracking info, but I can’t see any film other than “Next” grossing that high. I’m not even sure if Next stands a chance.

  4. Rob says:

    Next has to do $10 million no matter how crappy it is. What about The Invisible? Has Disturbia totally stolen its thunder.

  5. William Goss says:

    Any thoughts on TriStar’s ads-free and curiously limited release of that Emily Blunt horror flick, Wind Chill, this weekend?

  6. Saw Disturbia the other night. Not that bad actually, despite the characters making some of the stupidest decisions imaginable. Still, it was watchable and fun in parts and had some decent “scary” moments. The one thing I liked the very most though was the cast playing the kids (Shia LeBeouf and the other two) actually, shock horror, looked their age. Shia is only 20 so it makes sense that he can pass much easier as a 17-year-old than a 26-year-old muscle queen. But still, it was refreshing to see characters that age that looked like people that age.

  7. Oh, and can we all point and laugh at Perfect Stranger. That movie deserved to die and cruel and public death.

  8. Hopscotch says:

    I’d agree with you EDouglas but Hot Fuzz goes wide next week, and I fully expect the buzz on that to lift it’s BO potential considerably.
    And NEXT will probably win the weekend. Sigh.

  9. So, if Next is #1 next week then that means Nicolas Cage has had two #1 films by April. If Grindhouse had made it to #1 then technically he would have had three. Scary.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
