Weekend Box Office #129

Finally went to the movies last weekend, and saw I LOVE YOU MAN (good) and KNOWING (ultimately didn't quite work).

This weekend's offerings aren't all that tempting:

HANNAH MONTANA (3118 theaters). Her concert movie made a lot of money, but it's going to take a lot of little girls to make this one hit big. Look for it to do about $17.1 million for the weekend.

OBSERVE AND REPORT (2727 theaters). Word on this one is that it's a lot darker than they are selling it as; it could be this generations THE CABLE GUY (which isn't a good thing). Though Seth Rogen has his fans, the hard-R rating (for profanity and non-Seth penis) might knock down the crowds. Call it $15.9 million, and look for it to drop like a stone on its second weekend.

DRAGONBALL Z (2181 theaters). Apparently fans are miffed at all the changes from the manga, including the absense of the main characters' big spiky hair. Oy. $7.4 million.


Last weekend, FAST & FURIOUS made a brain-frying $71 million. ADVENTURELAND only did $5.7 million.

I have watched the "Hannah Montana" Saturday morning show. It's pretty, especially for kids. Unfortunatly, I'w WAY to old to have to sit through watching Miley Cyrus fret about things I can't relate to.

Might go see "Observe and Report," however. (To me) it looks like it's going to be funny. May double bill that and either "Adventureland" or "I Love You, Man." Other than that it's just cranking away on that epic bilical screenplay I'm working on. Slowly but surely...
