Blood for the Holidays
12.28.07 by REELZ
There's an interesting trend occuring this Holiday season at the movie house - instead of the usual heartwarming, happy holiday fare, many moviegoers are opting for a distinctly different experience at the cinema... Blood Shed.
Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem debuted on Christmas Day and rounded up an impressive $9.5 on Day 1. Our own Brent Simon was a bit underwhelmed - be sure to check out his Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem review. The post-apocalyptic I Am Legend is holding strong, on pace to hit $175 million in total box office this weekend while Tim Burton's blood-soaked Sweeney Todd is also continuing to perform well at the box office.
Finally, Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film, the darkly operatic There Will Be Blood opened in very limited release this week, garnering a staggering per-screen average of nearly $34,000.
