Super Bowl Weekend… and the winner is ‘Warm Bodies’

Ah, Super Bowl weekend! Warm Bodies (review) can go from a $9 million Saturday to a $2.9 million Sunday and it’s okay! According to the studio, it earned $8.1 million on Friday, $9 million on Saturday, yet is expected to make just $2.9 million today.
Yes, I know today is the Super Bowl, but I’m always shocked by these mega drops each and every year. The film, which has an estimated $20 million debut, played 60% female (because girls like horror films too!) and 65% under 25, which means it is doing best outside of the stereotypical older male football fan who is already getting ready for the big game so it may end up with a slightly higher weekend total in the end. It earned a B+ from Cinemascore, with an A- from those under 25 and an A from those under 18.
Regardless, this is a solid debut for a film that easily could have played to the geek crowd exclusively. This is the kind of film that could have easily opened with $8 million over the weekend, as opposed to $8 million on its first day.

“Lawless” director John Hillcoat talks Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and the taste of moonshine – AWARDS

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The wettest county usually overflows with moonshine. By the end of John Hillcoat’s new Prohibition-era crime thriller, it’s soaked in crimson streams of blood.
Once dubbed “The Wettest County,” Hillcoat’s “Lawless” stars Tom Hardy, Shia Labeouf and Jason Clarke as the Bondurant brothers, moonshiners from Southern Virginia who meet violent resistance from local gangsters, a Chicago law enforcer (Guy Pearce) and a rival mobster (Gary Oldman) with a taste for blood.
“I was looking forward to finding something that had more tonal range,” Hillcoat told me at the start of a recent interview, when we began by talking about “The Road” and “The Proposition,” his two previous (excellent) films. “Something with color and different moods.”
Mission accomplished with “Lawless,” which finds depth and resonance in the relationships between the three brothers rather than in the standard routines of the criminal-enterprise storyline (though Oldman and Pearce bring plenty of spice to those proceedings). “Lawless” also presents a unique situation where, because it temporarily sat on a shelf, its supporting cast elevated to A-list status. It’s one of the many things we discussed with Hillcoat as “Lawless” makes its way to theaters:
Where was “Lawless” filmed?
We shot in Georgia. And that offered us a lot. It goes into the Appalachia territories. In fact, Clayton, Georgia – where we filmed parts of this movie – also happens to be where they filmed “Deliverance.”
I ask because I’m in North Carolina, and I often get the impression that, 30 minutes outside of the cities here, the history of this particular period you focus on in “Lawless” remains. It still exists. Is that what you found in Georgia? Are the traces of this era still strong?
Absolutely. And I love the history of the South. It’s frought with conflict, but that creates such great drama. There’s also such great music and writings that have come out of that turbulent time period. The history certainly is still there. We’re also … I think these things come in waves and circles. Unfortunately, history repeats itself, but it’s always slightly different. There’s a lot of similar things going on today in regards to the divide between the rich and the poor. The corporate greed that happened then is still going on now. There’s a war on drugs that’s similar to what we talk about, though in our case, it’s Prohibition. I think there are a lot of [...]
