Weekend Box Office #83
So I feel badly about ignoring this blog so much, but I'm still getting slammed with work, and I'm struggling with juggling everything.
Unfortunately, what's really suffering is my writing -- where it was once an hour-a-day thing, now I haven't written a word in over three weeks. Ugh. I've got writing stuff that needs to be done, too.
I don't feel like myself these days.
The good news (I guess) is that I'm not going to be tempted to see any of this weekend's releases:
SPEED RACER (3606 theaters). I didn't have high hopes for this, and the LA Times review today put a stake in this movie for me, with their comment "Vast swaths of dialogue take the place of dramatic action in which things happen, once called scenes". In other words, it's just like the last Matrix movie. Feh. This will make some money this weekend, but I don't see it being huge huge. $34.6 million.
WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS (3215 theaters). I've seen the commercials, and I feel like I've seen the whole movie, and I want my money back already. $13.7 million.
REDBELT (expanding from 6 to 1301 theaters). There's just not anything here that really grabs me. $4.4 million.
