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

The Noob News Monday Morning Roundup…
It’s time to take a look at the numbers from this past weekends box office and see how well Hollywood did filling it’s coffers with gold.
This weekend was dominated by “Battle: Los Angeles”.

Also performing well and still holding strong was the animated film “Rango” who pulled in $23 million after last weeks $46 million dollar opening weekend and looks to be headed towards the $100 million dollar mark.

I was raised on the Hollywood western. While my friends were off playing Star Wars and Indiana Jones I was playing Rio Bravo and The Rifleman. My hero was always the man in the white hat that never failed to save the day and always got the girl. I also loved classic comedy westerns such as The Shakiest Gun in the West, The Apple Dumpling Gang, and The Great Race. Their comedic twist on the movies I had grown to love so much as a child kept me smiling on the worst of days. Perhaps that

In a wild west version of our world which just happens to be populated by random english speaking animals, the lizard with the fastest gun is king. That’s the message I take from this awesome trailer for “Rango”, the latest animated tour de force to draw in A list talent. Johnny Depp stars as Rango, a chameleon that aspires to be a swashbuckling hero who finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits and is forced to literally play the role in order to protect it. This is the first animated feature for special effects company Industrial Light & Magic and they certainly look to have lived up to their potential on this one. You really get the feeling that the various animals exist in some wild west parallel universe and are having the time of their lives shooting it up with bad guys.
