Weekend Box Office Results, May 26-28, 2006
  • I'll show the analysis and comparison chart tommorrow, since the forecasts were for the four-day holiday.
  • There is such a sudden drop off from rich to poor that some completely obscure films managed to sneak up pretty high. Keeping Up With the Steins took in only $579,000 on a mere 146 screens, but that was enough for 12th place.

My advice to the Nationals - let Soriano go for 50-50
  • He's currently on pace for 57 homers and 38 stolen bases. (He had a 39/41 season in the past.) I say the Washington Nationals should just give him the permanent green light. The Nationals are obviously going nowhere as a team, and an interesting record chase would increase their attendance as well as shift the nation's overall baseball focus away from steroids and Bonds. Plus Soriano is 30 now, and this could be his last chance, because base stealing is a young man's game.

Irish war film wins Cannes' Palme d'Or
  • Almodovar won best screenplay for Volver, his bitter-sweet tale of abuse, abandonment and reconciliation which was the critics' favourite to take the Palme d'Or before the awards were announced.
  • Best director went to Mexico's Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for Babel, a sweeping portrayal of barriers -- personal, cultural and national -- which was shot on three continents and stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.

'X-Men' storms to record opening weekend
  • "X-Men: The Last Stand stormed to an estimated $107 million three-day opening, the largest ever for Memorial Day weekend and the fourth-biggest in box office history"
  • The distance by which it shattered the Memorial Day record was phenomenal. The previous record for the three day Memorial Day weekend was $72 million, which X-Men 3 had already beaten on Saturday! The previous four-day record was $90 million - and X-Men already has $107 million with one day to go!

WELCOME TO THE HISTORICAL PRESERVATION LIBRARY OF BANNED CARTOONS
  • This is an incredible collection of animated films which you can no longer see elsewhere because of offensive portrayals of various minorities (especially black people, but also Germans and Japanese during the war years).
