I’m back on top! I’ll win this week too because Gridiron Gang will win another weak week. I take no joy in these easy victories, I look forward to the challenges of October. It looms on the horizon like a storm.
#1 movie predicted correctly: One Week In A Row
1. Gridiron Gang $16.1m
Did we really need another average football movie? Why can no one do football right? I mean The Program was flawed in every way and we’re still getting far worse films than that these days.
2. The Black Dahlia $9.5m
Yep, they did it. First Hollywoodland and now this. No one cares. No one wants to watch this. Yeah, S-Jo will get them a little more buzz but not enough for the double digits.
3. Everyone’s Hero $8.7m
Yay, A kid’s film! Go get em kiddies! I wonder if they even screened this one.. I have to check my voicemail more often. Oh, it’s a baseball themed kiddie one, so now we’re looking at three bad sports flicks in the top ten.
4. The Last Kiss $5.6m
I really liked this one. Will others? It may be a bit too complex for your average bear.
5. The Covenant $4.6m
It won last week, and now it will fade forever more. Let it be written, let it be done.
6. Hollywoodland $3.3m
You’d think Black Dahlia would bleed the audience but there is no audience. You can’t bleed a stone, Momma taught me that.
7. The Illusionist 3.0m
I keep telling people to see it and they keep looking at me with blank stares, kind of like when I go to Radio Shack and ask them a technical question.
8. The Protector $2.9
Wait, this isn’t The Guardian? Aren’t they synonyms? Man, come up with some new titles!
9. Invincible $2.8m
Two football movies on the same board, neither of them thirst quenching in the slightest. Maybe we should ask Nike to do us up a film, they’ve done wonders with shoes.
10. Little Miss Sunshine $2.2m
I hope this husband and wife team gets another shot at a movie soon. Actually, based on the box office results I’m guessing they have a ton of things being presented to them. Choose wisely my youngling directors, choose wisely.
See you Monday, well break it down family style.
