This Week In Movies – “Secretariat,” “Social Network,” “My Soul To Take”

By Pete Hammond HollywoodNews.com: With only a third place “show” of just $12.6 million perhaps the disappointing box office returns of “Secretariat” this weekend don’t quite emulate the spectacular performance of the 1973 Triple Crown winning title star of Disney’s movie but this is one race that may not be[...]

“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” heading to Fox after bidding war

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Do you think Fox executives are concerned at the underwhelming response to Overture’s vampire thriller “Let Me In,” which limped to $5.3 million at the box office this weekend?

“Wall Street 2” is a genuine mainstream hit with $19 million

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: The funny thing about long-delayed sequels is that it’s generally pretty easy for them to top the opening weekends of their predecessors purely due to inflation. So while “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” is a genuine mainstream hit with $19 million on 3,565 screens ($5,330 per[...]

“Let Me In” international trailer sinks its teeth into the Web

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: As many of you may know, I am opposed to remakes, in general, and vehemently opposed to remakes of films that already were good in their initial existence. So the idea that “Cloverfield” director Matt Reeves is remaking Tomas Alfredson’s chilling vampire thriller “Let the Right One[...]

Country music star Chely Wright comes out through new book

By Greg Hernandez There has been all kinds of speculation in recent weeks over who was the famous person coming out this week. It was interesting to see who people were coming up with. I’ve known for the past week that it was country singer Chely Wright because an advance copy of[...]

Producer Simon Oakes explains what’s right about ‘Let Me In’

When Let The Right One In was screened at film festivals in early 2008, it quickly built a reputation as a scary, satisfying vampire story that had a major advantage over its bloodsucking competition – namely, that it had substance, too.
