Weekend Box Office #127

In the midst of a long tiring move. Moved my mother-in-law into the house, and now we're doing the big furniture move tomorrow.

Meanwhile I have too much stuff. Too many DVDs, too many books, too many scripts, too much writing, too many CDs, too many tapes, too many records.

I still haven't seen anything that opened in 2009 yet. But here is this weekend's action:

MONSTERS VS. ALIENS (4104 theaters). Early word is that it's okay, but no Pixar film. The 3-D will help, the high screen count will help. Prediction: $48.9 million for the weekend.

THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT (2732 theaters). Creepy commercials will bring people in. $17.3 million for the weekend.

12 ROUNDS (2331 theaters). The commercials are vague, while the LA Times didn't have an ad (or a review) today. $6.8 million.


Last weekend, KNOWING did a solid $24.6 million. I LOVE YOU, MAN did $17.8 million. DUPLICITY stiffed a bit with only $14.0 million.

Dude, the vibe I get from reading your blog posts is that you're doing this OUT OF ROTE. Should be an outlet for you. Something you look forward to doing. Not something you feel you hafta do.

POINT: you need to spice things up, Scott.

No movies coming out this week look very good to me, so why don't the rush the next "Terminator" movie into the theatres. Now THAT I'm looking forward to. Will probably to Bonney Lake's "Hollywood Video" and see what the achive have for this weekends entertainment.
