Weekend Box Office Results (update)
  • The weekend estimates have been replaced by actuals. As it turns out, Hoodwinked did NOT win the weekend box office. Glory Road edged it out by $38,000
  • We finally see what happened to BloodRayne's attempt to bypass the standard distribution system. They originally created and distributed 1900 prints. Only half that many theaters ever played the film at all. After only a week, 600 more theaters dropped it. (Within typical distribution channels, theaters agree to a mandatory two week run when they take a film.) At this point, I don't know if the theaters dropped the film on their own, as a pure financial decision, or if they received pressure from the distribution companies.

  • "Malick's exalted visuals and isolated metaphysical epiphanies are ill-supported by a muddled, lurching narrative, resulting in a sprawling, unfocused account of an epochal historical moment."
  • "This lavish coffee-table-book of a movie gradually reveals itself as an uninvolving, crashing bore."
  • "Thanks, Mr. Mallick, for 2 1/2 hours of pretentious wanking!"

The British trailer from Imagine Me and You
  • "Imagine Me & You" is the story of a girl who falls in love on her wedding day...but not with the groom. Heck (Matthew Goode) and Rachel (Piper Perabo) are a happy young couple about to embark on life together. But at the church, Rachel catches the eye of an unexpected guest. In that moment, she realizes that maybe Heck isn't the one for her. Of course, they will never know for sure unless they give it a shot. What follows is the romantic, humorous and sometimes poignant journey familiar to anyone who's ever been lucky (or unlucky) enough to be under love's spell.
