Weekend Box Office #110

The only movie opening wide this weekend is QUANTUM OF SOLACE, in 3451 theaters.

It's being called the first true Bond sequel, because it picks up right after the last movie ended, and deals with his trying to get revenge for his villainous girlfriend's death.

As opposed to the normal Bond movie, where there's no mention of the hot girl he was banging in the last scene of the previous one.

It's a new Bond, and word is he spends this entire movie incredibly pissed off, for better or for worse.

Look for it to do about $57.4 million for the weekend, though I wouldn't be surprised if it is higher; there's not a lot else out there.

Anybody around here remembers "The Persuaders" theme song without shivering?

John Barry,
also composed the most memorable soundtracks for the "James Bond" legacy, and many other movies'.

"The Persuaders" theme is IMHO one of the most passionate and nostalgic / tragic themes I've ever listen to.

Up here in Washington, in the Seattle Times they also had a vampire movie opening this weekend, "Let the Right One In." The review said a lot of nice things about this horror movie. MIGHT be something Emily Blade would want to check out...

Will probebly see "Quantum of Solace" with my dad this weekend, but I stopped getting excited about "Bond" movies a long, long time ago.
