... plus, Ruben Studdard was in the trailer.


Honestly... what is up with that guy?  Why is he the American Idol?  He's total crap, he's (let's face it) not attractive, he doesn't really seem to be all that smart.  I dunno.  Everytime I see him (which actually isn't that much; I see more of Clay Aiken--just goes to show what losers the American Idol winners turn out to be), I just get immediately annoyed.  And it's not like that mofo can REALLY SING all that well.  He sings better than I do, sure, but not as well as a whole lot of other people.  He lacks any real personality.

Entertainment Weekly pointed out that while Clay was on some bigger shows, Ruben was on, heh, a UPN show.

Eh, it's probably just because he always looks like he has nothing going on in his brain that pisses me off.  You guys know what I'm talking about--how some people just piss you off.

Okay, I know this wasn't exactly the thread to do it in, but RANT OVER!

I have the feeling that Eternal Sunshine will pick up... if movie reviews killed Matrix Revolutions they can for sure make this movie a success


critics didn't kill matrix revolutions.
lines like "you can't die 'cause I love you too damn much" killed it.

it was pretty obvious that Hellboy would be number one although it is a kinda small opening weekend for a movie with that budget.  Walking tall did pretty good as well.

i guess jersey girl didnt fare too well in that second weekend like smith had hoped.  did they expand to more screens only to make less money?  i guess the word of mouth is not carrying the film as far as he had hoped.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

It still made 5.1 over the weeked. That's not a bad number or bad second week percentage. The screen count is just about the same (around 1500-1600 I think). I don't think Smith thought JG would go over it's first weekend business. Word of mouth movies just continue to pull in steady amounts at the box office. Think the horror that was My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Um, I don't know about you, but its been well known since early March that the Passion would have a rebirth at the box office this weekend (oh, rebirth... I get it). Read past newspaper articles. This was predicted for a good while now.
