  Did It Bomb? Weekend of 5/30/08

Hello, people! This weekend flew by, didn’t it? We only had a couple of flicks come out over that time period, but let’s see how my predictions matched up, shall we?

Sex and the City: Our favorite New York gals are back for one last hurrah. Almost all of the stars of this massively popular series have returned! I don’t know about you, but I was more than eager to see what course their lives have taken.
Will It Bomb? The female demographic will get this into the #2, but I doubt that it will shut out Harrison Ford! It will make a large amount of dough, anyway.
Did It Bomb? Shocker! This went straight to #1, with a take $56.8 million. Sex definitely sells!
Outcome: Mezza-mezza. ½ out of 2.

The Strangers: Scott Speedman and Liv Tyler take their married selves for a little getaway and end up stalked and held against their will. Not one of these kind of movies again! Looks tremendously boring to me…
Will It Bomb? This will get into the Top 5, definitely. I don’t think it will come close financially to the real hits. I vote it will make it to the #5 or #4.
Did It Bomb? Surprisingly this made $21 million, and it was enough to land this in the #3 position!
Outcome: Mezza-mezza.
1 out of 2.

***Official Box Office tallies and positions according to Variety (variety.com), The Hollywood Reporter (hollywoodreporter.com) and The Internet Movie Database (imdb.com).

Well, what do you know? Stumped again! As I often say, if you fall off of the curb, pick yourself up and start anew! Hopefully, I’ll do much better when this weekend’s new flicks are rolled out! See you over at WIB? in a couple of days!

Happy Friday! May is about to be a distant memory, but you can bet that the studios are breaking out the good stuff! What can you all look forward to this final week of the month? Hey, it’s time to find out! Here comes another edition of WIB?!

Sex and the City: Anyone who has ever been a fan of this show will be running so fast to see this! Four years have gone by since the series ended, and it looks like the ladies are going through even more life changes. Everyone is back, from the fabulous femmes, to their ultra-fashionable friends, husbands, children, and the best accessory of them all: New York City.
Will It Bomb? With a predominantly female audience, this will break into the second spot. Indiana Jones doesn’t look to be stepping down from its pedestal, but this will still break the bank. Who hasn’t been waiting for this movie to be made?

The Strangers: How many more movies with this same tired premise have to get made? Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman play a couple who take a little vacay at some isolated spot, when a bunch of people (who are probably psychotic, as they usually are in these films) hold them hostage and terrorize them. Am I supposed to be afraid? I’m pretty bored, actually. Even the music in the trailer and the masked mug in the corner didn’t do it.
Will It Bomb? I would not be surprised if it were to end up somewhere in the Top 5, but this will never match or surpass the ladies of SATC and old Mr. Jones. I think it’ll slide into the fourth or fifth spot.

It looks like that’s going to be all for me! You can bet that I will be back early in the week to give you the recap like nobody’s business. That happens, as always, over at DIB?. Have a great weekend and Happy Moviegoing!
