Ben Affleck’s ‘The Town’ takes the weekend with $23.8M

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: In a stupidly crowded weekend at the box office, we had four major wide releases and at least two major limited debuts. Without further ado, let’s dive in. Coming in at number one was Ben Affleck’s crime thriller “The Town.” With $23.8 million, the Affleck-directed picture out-grossed[...]

It’s Time to Forgive Some Infamous Movie scenes

By Scott Mendelson hollywoodnews.com: As one of the two highest-of-high holy days in the Jewish religion, Yom Kippur basically involves asking forgiveness for the past transgressions against God over the previous year. But arguably as important is Erev Yom Kippur, which is the day before the high holy day, which involves[...]

Disney’s ‘Tangled’ releases another meaningless trailer

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: Rapunzel is apparently a helpless and useless supporting character in her own movie. She gets maybe three lines of dialogue in the 150 second trailer, with the bulk of screentime going to her dashing and adventurous suitor. At least Rapunzel is uber-pretty, because that’s all girls are[...]

‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’ comes in an obvious first-place finish

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: I honestly can’t figure out for the life of me why there was only one new release this weekend, especially when there are four wide releases next weekend. But be it fear of opening a film on the weekend of September 11th, concerns about getting your press[...]

John McTiernan back in the game to direct “Shrapnel”

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: Just a few days after Jan De Bont inked a deal to end his seven-year sabbatical, now fellow action god John McTiernan is apparently back in the saddle as well. McTiernan, best known as ‘that guy who directed Die Hard’, is set to direct an original picture[...]

Saw VII trailer makes it self look like a “Final Destination” sequel

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: I’m sorry, but this just reeks of desperation. It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for this franchise, and three out of the six prior chapters (II, III, and VI) were darn good horror films. But this is just a stupid, silly, pandering trailer. Say[...]

Summer arthouse movies would have been mainstream 5 years ago

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: These two paragraphs originally ended the Summer Movie Preview: Box Office Review article, but after some prodding, I’ve decided to highlight them in their own post, as they deal with two specific issues worthy of note. With all the babbling about 3D vs. 2D, at the end of[...]

2010 Summer movies brought box office surprises

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: The biggest surprise of summer 2010 is how few surprises there really were. Most of the expected smash hits were smash hits, the expected under-performers underperformed, and the bigger films without studio support tanked. The more mainstream art-house cinema made money, while more challenging studio fare struggled.[...]

‘The American’ grosses a predictable $16.4 million over holiday

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: Despite stupidly opening on a Wednesday (and siphoning off $3 million before the traditional opening weekend), “The American” grossed a completely predictable $13 million over three days and $16.4 million over the four-day holiday. This is no less than the ninth George Clooney vehicle to open to[...]

“Lethal Weapon” series coming to Blu-ray with bonus material

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: This is the kind of thing I would have snapped up in a heartbeat just a couple years ago. Of course, part of being a father to an insanely energetic toddler is that you no longer have the time to watch your favorite movies multiple times, so[...]
