The Noob News Monday Morning Round Up #3

Posted on 28 March 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s Monday morning and that means it’s time to take a look at who made out like a bandit this weekend at the box office. This weeks winner is Diary of a wimpy Kid 2 which strongly out performed expectations pulling in 24 million dollars while the poorly reviewed Suckerpunch was left gasping for breath. Apparently word of mouth got out that Sucker Punch was all style and no substance and the movie crowd decided a kids book adaptation sounded like a good bet. Word of mouth is sure to keep Wimpy Kid 2 strong for a few weeks to follow.

Limitless and The Lincoln Lawyer continued to perform strongly in their second week. Both performed well with less that 20% drop off from the previous week. These two movies continue to do very well with the older crowd which means you’ll probably see them played to death on basic cable in a few years. For now expect them both to continue strong in the coming weekends.

Rango pulls in fifth with a still strong 9 million after 4 weeks. The best reviewed movie of the year has now passed the 100 million dollar mark and looks to be steaming steadily towards the 125 million dollar mark before it’s run in theaters is done.

The biggest drop offs this week were Paul -42%, Red Riding Hood -39%, and Mars Needs Moms -58%. All three of these movies have struggled to perform outside of their demo’s which has led to a quick drop off at the box office. Luckily for Paul they made a lot of money overseas before dropping here in the US 2 weeks ago. Red Riding Hood and Mars Needs Moms hope to find a second life when they hit DVD later this year.

 

1 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules $ 24,400,000
2 Sucker Punch 19,015,000
3 Limitless 15,225,000
4 The Lincoln Lawyer 11,000,000
5 Rango 9,800,000
6 Battle: Los Angeles 7,600,000
7 Paul 7,506,000
8 Red Riding Hood 4,340,000
9 The Adjustment Bureau 4,245,000
10 Mars Needs Moms 2,186,000
10 Beastly 2,185,000

The Noob News Monday Morning Roundup #2

Posted on 21 March 2011 by TH3 No08

Box Office Report for the weekend of March 18 – 20

Yes folks it’s that time again, it’s Monday morning and that means it’s time to check out how rich you made Hollywood this weekend.

The weekends surprise winner was “Limitless”, starring nouveau man of the hour Bradley Cooper as a man who takes a pill that allows him to use 100 percent of his brain power, not grow a giant melon shaped head, and draw 19 million dollars at the box office.

Battle Los Angeles was expecting stronger 2nd week numbers than what it raked it. Apparently anyone who was interested in seeing “Battle: LA” has either already seen it, was scared off by bad reviews, or drawn in by by Bradley Coopers captivating blue eyes. Either way they fell off by 59% and ended up 3rd behind the still strong “Rango” who more than likely will hit the magic 100 million dollar mark this coming weekend.

Rounding out the top five were “The Lincoln Lawyer” at number four with a respectable showing of 13.4 million and my favorite opening of the week “Paul” at number five. Paul’s 13.2 million dollar opening is Simon Peggs/Nick Frost’s largest opening weekend and is considered a good opening considering the rather limited marketing of the movie as sci-fi/fanboy style entertainment. With the good reviews and solid opening (as well as 41 million dollars in international ticket sales) “Paul” is expected to hold steady

Comic Review: Carbon Grey 1 of 3

Posted on 15 March 2011 by TH3 No08

Carbon Grey 1 of 3

Sponsored by: www.comicbreak.com

Written By: Hoang Nguyen, Khari Evans, Paul Gardner and Mike Kennedy

Art by: by Khari Evans, Kinsuh Loh and Hoang Nguyen,

Script and Lettering by: Paul Gardner.

For generations the Sisters have protected and counseled the Kaiser, ruler of Mitteleuropa. However, this is a different time. At the birth of the industrial age a great war is raging. When the Kaiser is assassinated…Giselle is accused.

Pursued by her sisters and hunted by the enemy, Giselle must unravel the prophecy of the Carbon Grey before history itself is rewritten!

Carbon Grey may be an “adult” a comic as I have ever read. And I don’t mean adult in the sense that it is not for children (even though this is certainly not a child’s comic). I mean it more in the sense that this book is something that younger readers may have a very hard time wrapping their minds around. The layers are many, the themes complex, the writing sophisticated. So sophisticated in fact that it actually took me a couple of times to really get what was going on here.

Carbon Grey is all about revolution. Not just revolution in war sense but revolution in the way we look at the female heroine and women in general. The Sisters Grey (who this story is about) are not women to be fucked with. They each represent a different piece of revolution and together they make up a dangerous group willing to go to any end to achieve their goals. They are beautiful, manipulative, conniving assassins, and they use that to every advantage.

The art in this book is breathtaking at times. There is an Asian sensibility to the art in Carbon Gray but it is not derivative of the style, only inspired by it. It does not feature the typical anime features your are used to seeing in manga, but paints around the edges with them, giving you just a sense of what lies inside the minds of the artists who created this book.

The only real qualm I had with this book was the cover. There are some amazing images inside this book and to feature the image they did seems to do little justice for what lies inside. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad, it just doesn’t really represent what this book is truly about.

Carbon Grey is a book that I can only recommend if you are serious about comics being art. This is not an easy read, but multiple readings will certainly open up worlds you may have not known existed in comics. If more writers took the approach to comics that Hoang Nguyen has, the average comic reader would have a very different view of the world than they do today.

Paul red band trailer

Posted on 24 February 2011 by TH3 No08

I recently had a chance to check this movie out and I really dug it. It was smart, funny, and full of pop cultural sci-fi references much like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Here is the red band trailer focusing on some of the cruder moments in the film, enjoy and check it out when it hits theaters in March.

WIN WIN Trailer starring Paul Giamatti peaks my interest.

Posted on 05 February 2011 by TH3 No08

Paul Giamatti stars as a lawyer/part time high school wrestling coach who discovers a wrestling phenom, this looks very interesting. I like Giamatti and he looks to be in fine form in this one surround by a strong supporting cast…

Synopsis

Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty (Giamatti), who moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings while trying to support his family. Just as it looks like he will get a double payday, the boy’s mother shows up fresh from rehab and flat broke, threatening to derail everything.

New Poster for Paul is online

Posted on 17 November 2010 by Kevin Minke

EMPIRE just release a new poster for the movie Paul, shown below in this post, “landing” March 18, 2011. The movie stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two British comic-book geeks traveling across the U.S. on a roadtrip to Comic Con who encounter an alien, played by Seth Rogen, outside Area 51. I don’t know about you guys but I’m totally on board to see this film even without a trailer yet. How have I not heard about this before today?
