Two of this week’s new releases are based on novels – one a Stephen King classic and the other a recent New York Times Bestseller. The third is a movie about what happens to people who kill themselves – apparently they go on roadtrips together across the afterlife.
All right, ladies and germs! You read my assessments of what came out last weekend and you either flocked to the cinema in droves or chose to stay home and watch TV reruns! At any rate, how about we see just how these flicks did over the weekend?
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Another CGI remake of a classic, Borrring. This one stars Jason Lee as the guardian to three little singing creatures. I loved the cartoon, so I wasn’t really happy to hear that movie was made.
Will It Bomb? Nice and fluffy cartoon remake will bring some money. I vote that it will get into the #6 spot or lower. Did It Bomb? Wow! I was off way off base! This brought in $44.3 million, and entered at the #2 slot! Who would have thought?! Outcome: Strike! 0 out of 5
I Am Legend: Loose lips on the ending from star Will Smith may not have gone very well, but how about the plot? That of a lone survivor of some huge viral plague? Now you’re talking! This looks very well done and I expect mega bank! Will It Bomb? With a huge amount of glowing publicity, it’s going straight to the top! Did It Bomb? I called it! That’s right! It did make it to #1! Bringing $77.2 million, no less! Outcome: Score! 1 out 5.
