  1. ThriceDamned says:

    Guardians look unlikely at this point to reach $300m domestic, look for it to top out at $600m worldwide.

  2. Bulldog68 says:

    Ha ha.

  3. chris says:

    “Hundred-Foot Journey” is turning out to be a really smart investment and Helen Mirren is holding down the Meryl Streep August slot better than it initially seemed.

  4. Pete B. says:

    Who thought Helen would have out grossed Stallone & Company?

    She should have been an Expendable.

  5. movieman says:

    Pete- Didn’t Mirren already go the “Expendables” route in the “Red” movies?

  6. EtGuild2 says:

    “If I Stay” has more staying power than I expected. Getting close to $50 million is more than respectable given the release date.

    It’s a little surreal to realize Ashley Judd could be in the midst of a campaign to oust Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rights now, but is instead out promoting insipid treacle like “The Identical” and “Dolphin Tale 2.”

  7. Pete B. says:

    movieman- Yes she did, and she was the best part of those films.

    Maybe instead of getting the younger batch of no-name fighters, Stallone should have had Mirren, Sigourney Weaver, and Michelle Yeoh. It might have drawn in a wider audience.

  8. YancySkancy says:

    Love Helen Mirren, but for me the best part of RED 2 was Byung-hun Lee. That dude is awesome and a fantastic actor (thought I SAW THE DEVIL is a much better showcase for his talent).
