  • You know that the real Atene has to surface soon (assuming the original tape is genuine)

Today's kids today are much harder to scare.
  • Oh, those kids today with their fancy-schmancy serial killer movies and their MTV and their CGI. Why in my day, nobody went to any trouble to scare us. We would just go to an empty theater and try to scare each other by hiding behind the seats. Sometimes we would go see Mike Dwyer's Uncle Sean, and get scared by his goiter. Occasionally, for a really good scare, my mom would cook.

Weekend Box Office Results for October 27–29, 2006
  • The top twelve were just about even with last year. They were actually up by $2.1 million, and that was completely accounted for by the difference between Saw 2 and Saw 3.
  • Saw 3 opened with $34 million, compared to $32m for its predecessor, and $18m for the first one in the series. Saw 3 and Saw 2 were virtually identical in the "average per theater" column, but the latest one was in 200 more theaters.
  • Scorsese scored well again. The Departed held on to the #2 slot, and dropped only 27% despite losing a few theaters.
  • In a week in which the carry-over films had generally small drops, Grudge 2 was an exception, dropping 60%, presumably because it faced direct competition for its target audience from Saw 3.
  • Running with Scissors did well in limited distribution, and actually finished second in the "per screen" column to climb to tenth in aggregate revenues
  • Catch a Fire couldn't have done much worse. It barely crawled to $2m, which was less than half of expectations. And expectations were low to begin with!
