  Star Trek already made $7million
Posted by: Mike on May 8th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Star Trek 2009Variety is reporting that last night’s late night showings of Star Trek have already brought the movie’s weekend total to $7 million, domestically.

Estimates say that if the film pulls in $25million today (which is extremely likely) that it’ll break the $80million mark for its opening weekend.

Chances of Wolverine holding the number one spot two weeks in a row are pretty bleak at this point.

Wolverine opened on roughly 4,100 screens, and did just over $75million on opening weekend, last week.

Star Trek is opening on 3,800 screens, and is estimated to do over $80million. Seems like a good weekend to be part of the Star Trek franchise.

We’re planning on hitting the first showing in the morning, and will have our review up early tomorrow afternoon.

What about you? When are you planning on seeing it?  Or are you not planning on seeing it at all?




  Star Trek Opening Early

Star Trek 2009

Star Trek 2009

Generally, with big movies (or at least movies the studio thinks are big) they open at midnight, or 12:01AM in most cases.

News came from ComingSoon that the reimagining of Star Trek will not only open early, but will start screening at 7PM on May 7th, though it doesn’t technically open until May 8th.

Whether this is for “the fans”, or just to make a couple extra bucks during their opening weekend, who knows.

While the trailers look intense, and interesting, I’ve never seen the show or any of the other movies.  I most likely won’t go see this one, because I’ll have no clue as to what’s going on.

What about you?  Do you have plans to see Star Trek?




  Star Trek 2, Already?

In a bold effort saying that Paramount stands behind their decision to let J.J. Abrams do whatever the hell he wanted with Star Trek, news broke last night that they’ve green lit the sequel.

You read that right, a full month before Star Trek hits theaters, they’ve started looking for writers for the sequel.

Personally, I’ve never been a “Star Trek” fan, so I’ll be skipping the movie.  But what about you? Were you a fan of the show? Do you have plans to see the movie?  Leave your opinion in the comments.




  New Trailers at the Super Bowl
Posted by: Mike on Jan 9th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Reports are surfacing this morning, citing Variety magazine as having the inside scoop into what trailers we’ll get to see in all their HD glory during this year’s Super Bowl.  And let’s face it, that few hours is the only time I don’t fast forward through commercials on my Tivo.

Here’s a list of what’s been confirmed to be shown:

I’m pretty psyched to see most of these.  G.I. Joe concerns me, based on what I’ve read about it. I’m thinking it’s going to be a bomb.  But the rest seem pretty good.




  Mid-Week Entertainment Wrap-up
Posted by: Mike on Oct 16th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Sorry for the lack of updates this week, I’ve been working pretty heavily on a redesign for the site, which has taken up most of my free time.

To keep you occupied, in the meantime, here’s a recap of what’s going on, and some links to more stories:

  • There’s a whole bunch of new images from Saw V, which opens next Friday over at BloodyDisgusting
  • Sources say there’s more footage after the end of Max Payne, similar to the last Pirates movie and Iron Man.  Stick around until the credits are over for a hint of a sequel.
  • SlashFilm is reporting that Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland is going to be “more engaging/psychological”, by which they mean “stupid” and “annoying.”
  • A site I’ve never heard of, called MovieHole, says that someone greenlit a World of Warcraft movie, and a script is being penned. (link)
  • JoBlo has a pretty cool interview with Mark Wahlberg (link)
  • Lionsgate has said they’re not screening W in Texas. Hmm, wonder why?
  • Richard Donner has confirmed that plans to make The Goonies sequel are one again shut down.
  • LatinoReview has some new images from Star Trek, if you’re into that sorta thing. (link)

That’s about it for the last couple of days.  Back to work on the redesign I go.

Movie Themed AvatarsI meant to write about this a month ago when I found it, but it got lost in a sea of Google Bookmarks.

RopeofSilicon has a collection of movie-themed avatars for you to download and use. My personal favorite is the NPH one from the poster for Harold and Kumar 2.

They also have ones with Heath Ledger as The Joker, Cloverfield, Star Trek, Sex and the City, and a ton more. Go get yours at RopeofSilicon.com.
