Did It Bomb? Weekend of 4/11/08

If you’ve never ventured up to New England, you have no idea how crazy and unpredictable the weather is here! Over the weekend, not only was it positively gorgeous and unseasonably warm, but many decided to venture out and see the latest flicks! The last few weeks have been a bit touch and go, but have I broken my losing streak? There’s only one way to find out!

Welcome to this week’s DIB?!

Chaos Theory (Limited Release): Ryan Reynolds’ life is beyond organized. He plans every single detail down to the minute. Well, apparently, that can’t last forever, because he dumps the datebook and goes for glory!
Will It Bomb? Will a limited release, this looks pretty interesting! I vote it’ll bring in a nice chunk of dough!
Did It Bomb? With showings in less than 15 theatres, this made a bit over $222,500. Not bad!
Outcome: Score! 1 out of 4.

Prom Night: While many of us shake our heads at the endless number of remakes, lo and behold, they made another one! Based on the ‘80s flick about deaths at a prom, I guessed that those who saw the ultimate “deathly prom” film (Carrie, of course) would not even go near this.
Will It Bomb? All personal opinion of this movie’s stupidity aside, it will get viewership. It’s putting up stakes at the bottom of 10, in my book, but more people will probably run to it.
Did It Bomb? I had a feeling that I was going to be wrong about this anyway! Wouldn’t you know! Earning $22.7 million, this skyrocketed to #1!
Outcome: Strike! 1 out of 4.

Smart People: As an unusual professor who’s sidelined by a medical condition, Dennis Quaid is joined by a bunch of his kooky relatives and may also bring a girlfriend into the fold.
Will It Bomb? It’s great that Dennis Quaid got back into film after his family’s horrific ordeal recently. The cast is quite hot, so this will make the center of the Top 10.
Did It Bomb? Just as I expected! This ended up at the #7 slot, and made a tidy $4.2 million.
Outcome: Score! 2 out of 4.

Street Kings: Keanu Reeves is back! In this tale of corruption in the LAPD, all the players use a kind of force that I doubt was taught to them in an academic setting!
Will It Bomb? Action and crime galore! That’s just the kind of film many of us are in the mood for! This is absolutely going in the Top 5!
Did It Bomb? I got another one! With a take of $12 million, this blasted into #2!
Outcome: Score! 3 out of 4.

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

I can’t believe it! I think I’ve been doing pretty well lately, don’t you? Let’s see if I can continue with this good fortune this coming weekend! As always, I’ll be back later this week with the latest installment of WIB?! I’ll see you then!
