G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens with solid $51.7 million

G.I. Joe: Retaliation opened with a relatively solid $51.7 million over the four-day frame, for a $41.2 million Fri-Sun gross. Any way you slice it, this is a slightly lower figure than the $54 million Fri-Sun debut of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra back in August 2009. [...]

“Spring Breakers” Amuses – Weekend Box Office

No matter what you think of the film, the $30.5 million debut of Olympus Has Fallen this weekend is very good news for those who want their action films to be R-rated. With Arnold, Sly, and Jason all flaming out and only the terrible A Good Day To Die Hard[...]

‘Identity Thief’ tops weekend box office again

I can’t confirm this offhand, but I’m pretty sure Snitch has the biggest opening weekend of all time for a film based on a Frontline documentary. The ‘mandatory minimum sentences are evil’ action drama debuted with $13 million this weekend. That’s not a huge figure, but it’s above[...]

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters wins weekend box office

This weekend’s lesson is “all the marketing prowess in the world doesn’t matter if you don’t have the movie”. Paramount has been batting 1.000 in terms of launching major fantasy-skewed franchise pictures. From at least summer 2007 with Transformers, they have been the most consistent performers in terms of[...]

Super Bowl commercial: G.I. Joe: Retaliation brings the cheese

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: I liked G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra more than most people did, so it heartens me to say that this short 30 second spot feels more larger-than-life than the first full trailer. Point being, I don’t want a G.I. Joe movie that is ‘dark, gritty,[...]

Bruce Willis, The Rock in new “G.I. Joe” trailer

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Audience members at Harry Knowles’ Butt-Numb-A-Thon in Austin over the weekend were treated to an early peek at the trailer for “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” a sequel to the summer blockbuster that brings The Rock and Bruce Willis into an already macho fold. We thought we’d have to[...]

Bruce Willis may play original Joe in “G.I. Joe” sequel

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Bruce Willis appears to be having fun with his action-hero image as he transitions gracefully into the later stages of his acting career. Willis smirked his way through an amusing cameo with his Planet Hollywood partners Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in “The Expendables.” And now he[...]

“Smurfs” could trigger more ’80s nostalgia: What’s next?

By Adam Frazier Hollywoodnews.com: Smurfin’ Smurfs. The Hollywood Reporter estimates Jon Favreau’s “Cowboys & Aliens” will collect $13-$13.5 million on Friday, which would mean about only $38 million for the weekend. Likewise, Sony Pictures’ “The Smurfs” should make around $38-40 million over the weekend. In other words, Han Solo and James[...]

Paramount makes wrong scheduling move for GI Joe: Retaliation and Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol

HollywoodNews.com: As expected, Paramount was the first to blink this afternoon, moving Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol away from its December 16th release date where it would have gone head-to-head with Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. The Brad Bird-directed sequel will now open[...]

“Space Invaders” heading to the big screen

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: At least it’s not another superhero. Instead, producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Odd Lot Entertainment’s Gigi Pritzker plan on bringing the classic video game “Space Invaders” to the big screen, THR reports. Now that they’ve optioned the rights to the title, the producers are searching for the right[...]
