Did It Bomb? Weekend of 10/12/07

Good morning, ladies and gents! Here I am with your official recap after all of the reviews have been publicized and the tallies have come in!

Just how did I make out this time around? You’d be surprised! On, we go, to DIB?!

Elizabeth: The Golden Age: Cate Blanchett gets all gussied up again as Queen Elizabeth I, and we learn more about her long reign.
Will It Bomb? This will hit the 5. No doubt about it.
Did It Bomb? Unfortunately, Cate did not rule the Box Office the way the Queen ruled her kingdom. #6 slot with $6.15 million revenue.
Outcome: Mezza-mezza. ½ out of 4.

Lars and the Real Girl: Wanting new friends, Ryan Gosling orders a plastic girl online. Family and friends are a bit concerned.
Will It Bomb? The industry’s giving it some positive feedback, so it should rake some in.
Did It Bomb: With only a handful of screenings, this made a bit over $90,000! It’s well on its way!
Outcome: Score! 1 ½ out of 4.

We Own the Night: Outcast mends the fence with his estranged police officer father and brother to go after really bad guys.
Will It Bomb? Great casting, so it will probably hit the Top 5.
Did It Bomb? $10.8 mill brought in and a #3 spot. They owned part of the night this past weekend.
Outcome: Score! 2 ½ out of 4.

Why Did I Get Married?
Tyler Perry, Janet Jackson, and a bunch of couples needing to mend their relationships bond over a weekend trip.
Will It Bomb? Probably. It looks very sappy and not too thrilling.
Did It Bomb? Apparently, I was dead wrong on this one. It hit #1 spot with $21.4 million! Wonderful!
Outcome: Strike! 2 ½ out of 4.

***Official Box Office tallies and positions according to Variety (, The Hollywood Reporter ( and the Internet Movie Database (

All right, guys! That’s the way the cookie crumbles. Later this week, I bring you the new kids over at WIB?! Next week, come on back here for all the juicy details. Until then!

    It somehow makes me want to be violent. Just tells you a lot about our society.

    Brainless stupid ethnic movie? or kick-ass action drama with fantastic actors.

    Which would you pick?

  2. Marina on said:

    I was thinking the same thing Christine. It just seems so damned wrong.

  3. Katy on said:

    (raises hand). I’m probably the most disappointed of them all!

  4. Christine on said:

    Is anyone else incredibly sad that Tyler Perry’s movie beat out three of the greatest actors on screen today?
