What happened to the Promised Land?

The major expansion this weekend was for Matt Damon’s Promised Land. Gus Van Sant’s well-reviewed ‘fracking is bad but it’s complicated…’ morality play earned just $4.6 million for the weekend. Chalk it up to being mostly buried during the frenzied Oscar season. Frankly, this could have been[...]

Paranormal Activity 3 Trailer

HollywoodNews.com: Considering how completely enshrouded in mystery the second film is, it’s a little surprising that Paramount basically ups and reveals the primary plot in this moody and effective teaser. This time around, it’s being helmed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, who broke out last year with the somewhat[...]

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part I” scores $125 million. “Next Three Days” tanks.

hollywoodnews.com: I don’t generally like to brag, but my math yesterday concerning a likely poor weekend multiplier for the seventh Harry Potter film was dead-on. After opening with $24 million in midnight showings, the film pulled in $61 million on its first day, and just $38 million on its second,[...]

This Week In Movies By Pete Hammond: “SAW VII,” “Stone,” “The Girl That Kicked The Hornet’s Nest”

By Pete Hammond hollywoodnews.com: In a tacit admission that Halloween and the World Series may be just too big a distraction for moviegoers there was only one wide national release this week, and that was the abominable, not-screened-in-advance-for-critics seventh and mercifully final edition (they promise) of the torture-porn “Saw” horror series.[...]

Hollywood Movie Roundup: ‘Saw 3D’ kills ‘Paranormal 2’

HollywoodNews.com: “Saw 3D,” the final chapter in the serial killer Jigsaw franchise, will not leave quietly. The Lionsgate horror film rang up $10.7 million Friday, killing off last weekend’s fright champ “Paranormal Activity 2” at the knees for the top box office sport. To date that Paramount sequel has[...]

‘Paranormal Activity 2’ scores a record $6.3M on midnight showings

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: After scoring a record $6.3 million in midnight showings alone, “Paranormal Activity 2” ended its first day with $20.1 million. For what it’s worth, that means that “Paranormal Activity 2” had one of the lowest ‘midnight-to-opening day’ multipliers in history. Only “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”[...]

‘Expendables’ explodes, ‘Eat Pray Love’ is bountiful, while ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ lacks ‘Game Genie.’

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: Proving once again that films aimed at older audiences have theoretically stronger legs than those aimed at teens, ‘The Expendables’ and ‘Eat Pray Love’ both had strong weekend multipliers and both performed at or above realistic expectations. With all the hub-bub regarding ‘the guy movie vs.[...]

‘The Expendables’ outdraws a strong ‘Eat Pray Love’ while ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ does cult geek business.

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: ‘The Expendables’ was number one in its first day of release, taking in $13.3 million. The Sly Stallone and friends ensemble looks heading for an opening weekend of around $35 million. Although the picture cost $82 million, distributor Lionsgate is only on the hook for[...]

Teaser trailer, 3-D poster arrive for final “Saw” film

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: There aren’t a lot of places left to go with the “Saw” franchise, so a move into the 3-D realm — which has been swallowing the horror genre for decades — would be considered inevitable. Yesterday, Bloody Disgusting was given the exclusive 3-D poster for “Saw 3-D,” which[...]
