Weekend Box Office #90
This is the first time I've been a day late in my weekend preview for a while. But my wife has been home battling a virus, and that's a distraction.
She's doing better though.
Otherwise, I think I'm over the hump in being swamped; I still have work, but I don't feel buried under pressing deadlines.
Hopefully I'll be able to do some major digging back into my screenplay this week, though now I'm concerned about its possible resemblance to an upcoming Ricky Gervais/Greg Kinnear script called GHOST TOWN. If anyone has a line on the script, let me know.
WALL-E (3992 theaters). Is anyone more reliable than Pixar? This has gotten a lot of very solid reviews, and should do well. My guess? $71.1 million for the weekend.
WANTED (3175 theaters). It sort of looks like action claptrap, but reviews haven't been entirely dismissive, and I'm sure there will be people checking this out. $31.2 million.
I've been wading my way through a box of DVDs, and I can report that 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS and 2 DAYS is small, European and rivetting throughout.
Meanwhile, I wanted to like BE KIND REWIND, but it just isn't really all that funny, despite an amiable tone.
