Here's the teaser-trailer for the DisneyPixar animation, Cars
  • "Lightning McQueen, a hotshot rookie race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line, when he finds himself unexpectedly detoured in the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. McQueen gets to know the town’s offbeat characters- who help him realize that there are more important things than trophies, fame and sponsorship."

The superbowl champs drop to 6-5!
  • In any other division they would be in danger of missing the playoffs. In the AFC East, however, they could take the rest of the year off, thus finishing 6-10, and still have a good chance to make it! The rest of the teams in that division would have to pick up the pace to finish 7-9.

Those Bears can play some D!
  • They have managed to go 8-3 despite scoring fewer than 17 points per game. (In comparison, the Packers have scored 22 per game, and are 2-8, and the Rams have scored 25 per game, and are 4-6.)
  • The Bears have allowed 10.9 points per game. The record since the adoption of the 16-game schedule is 10.3, set by the Ravens in 2000. The best since the AFL/NFL merger is 9.2 by the 1977 Atlanta Falcons
  • You never heard of the 1977 Falcons? I'm not surprised, because the best defense in modern history was only good enough to get them a 7-7 record, and they had to win their last game to reach .500! Their offense finished 25th out of 28 teams. They lost one pitcher's duel 3-0 after winning 7-0 the previous week!
  • I suppose the best multi-year record belongs to the 1969-1971 Minnesota Vikings, who allowed 9.5, 10.2, and 9.9 in that stretch. They bested the current Bears three years running!

Weekend Box Office Results, November 25-27, 2005
  • There were some quirky results this week. Rent, which had a surprisingly big five million dollar opening on Wednesday, ended up with a disappointing ten million for the entire weekend. (Predictions were in the $15 million range.) Rent beat Walk the Line on Wednesday, but could muster only half of Walk the Line's gross by Sunday.
  • Speaking of Walk the Line, it had a great weekend, adding another twenty million to its total, and losing only 11% of its audience from the opening weekend.
  • Scathing reviews didn't seem to affect Yours, Mine, and Ours (94% negative reviews) or In the Mix (100% negative reviews), both of which exceeded expectations.
  • The Ice Harvest, despite the presence of Billy Bob and Cusack, could not crack the top ten!
  • Harry Potter slowed a bit, but still made it to $200 million in ten days, an achievement which has been bested by only three films in film history (Revenge of the Sith and the two Spiderman films)
  • Syriana took in an astronomical $74 thousand per screen in its test run. That is the third best of all time among films in five theaters or more, bested only by Corpse Bride and Pocahontas. The Pocahontas record - $448,000 per screen for six screens - will be difficult to beat. It is nearly six times as high as the second place finisher!!
  • The expansion of Pride and Prejudice has to be considered a success. It accumulated $5400 per screen, fourth best among the wide releases.
  • The total for the Top 12 was almost identical to the corresponding total for the 2004 Thanksgiving weekend, with the two numbers separated by less than 1%. For you half-full guys, the slight advantage went to this year, but these totals are estimates, and the razor-thin margin could disappear when the actuals come in.

The latest version of this gossip: "SARAH Michelle Gellar will not show her breasts and she doesn't care how much money Hollywood offers."
  • Whatever. I don't really care, but I think the previous rumor was that she was looking for a role with nudity in order to expand her marketability.
