This week’s new releases are completely different from each other. We have the action-thriller Jumper starring Darth Whiney and Sammy L. Then comes The Bucket List starring two of the finest actors the screen has ever known – Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. And then comes The Other Boleyn Girl starring Eric Bana, Natalie Portman, and Scarlett Johansson.
The casting could not have been better! Johansson and Portman used every emotional resource available in battling it out for the kingdom and repairing the resulting damage of the family relationships. Bana was superb as the king who went through wives like most of us go through tissues.
Good evening, ladies and gentleman, and welcome to the start of a new month! Now, we haven’t quite left February behind. There were a handful of films that sped in to theaters! I made my own predictions of how they would do, and now it’s time to pay the piper!
You’re now about to enjoy this week’s installment of DIB?! Did I pull it off?
Chicago 10(Limited Release): Those of you who lived through or were unaware of the anti-Vietnam War protests at the Democratic National Convention in 1968 are in for the long haul with this film. Not only that, but you also get the recreation of the trial of the men that were blamed for the whole kit and caboodle. Will It Bomb? This is a very important voting year, so that will propel the revenue. It’ll bring in a modest amount of dough. Did It Bomb? Shown in less than 15 theaters, this brought in a bit over $44,800. Not bad! Outcome: Mezza-mezza. ½ out of 5
Hello, kids! Today is February 29th! A rarity, since it only comes around every four years! How great is it that it falls on a Friday? That’s just in time for the weekend rush. What films are lucky enough to be released and hopefully find success on this Leap Year? Scroll on down and check it out!
Welcome to this week’s edition of WIB?!
Chicago 10(Limited Release): The US was embroiled in a hotbed of controversy with the anti-Vietnam War protests at the 1968 Democratic Convention. This film focuses on and revisits the subsequent trial of a handful of men who had all fingers pointed at them for allegedly fueling the fire. Will It Bomb? Considering this is a voting year, many of those who are politically minded will attend a screening. I think it’ll bring in a modest amount of money, since it’s in Limited Release.
