Spider-Man 3 coasted to another easy weekend box office victory, hauling in $60 million, according to boxofficemojo.com. British zombie sequel 28 Weeks Later placed a distant second with a disappointing $10 million take, while tabloid queen Lindsay Lohan's comeback vehicle Georgia Rule grossed just under $6 million. Rounding out the top five were Disturbia at $4.8 million and Delta Farce at $3.5 million.
Mediocre reviews have started to take their toll on Spider-Man 3, as the flick managed only the fourth best second weekend of all time after demolishing records during its opening weekend. If the trend continues, Tobey Maguire just might have to downgrade his Gulfstream G350 to the far less roomy G150. Poor guy.
Look for a new box office champ next weekend, as a big green ogre awaits on the horizon, licking his chops at the sight of his wounded prey. Posted 05.14.07 by reelz
Spider-Man 3 is a virtual lock to top the weekend box office for the second week in a row. Nevertheless, a few brave little movies have volunteered to take on the Spidey juggernaut.
Here's a rundown of our reviews of this week's new releases. Anybody else notice a pattern?
28 Weeks Later
"...more or less a conventional big-budget action film, albeit one featuring flesh-eating zombies. It's all about guns and explosions and elaborately set-pieces." [Full Review]
"As overtly Hallmark-schmoopy as Marshall's and Andrews' work can sometimes be, I still tend to like it....for all its flaws, the story is still interesting and watchable." [Full Review]
"Is The Ex the most amazing comedy I have ever seen? Well, no. But I'll tell you, I had fun watching it." [Full Review]
Some of you may believe the 6-6-6 pattern merely denotes a trio of mediocre new releases, but I prefer to interpret it as a signal that the Dark Lord is assembling his minions in preparation for his final assault on the people of Earth.
But hey, that's just me.
Also opening this week: Delta Farce, Home of the Brave and The Salon. Posted 05.11.07 by reelz
Want to spend some q/t with your mom? What better way to show her you love her than watching a movie together? I personally can think of none.
In the theaters this weekend, your best bets for mom-friendly flicks are Waitress and Georgia Rule.
Or, you could always snuggle up with her on the sofa and let her change your poopy diaper while you watch Terms of Endearment. Or Saw II. I hear that's big with the moms.

According to MSN, Lindsay Lohan announced that for her next role, she will be playing a stripper in the upcoming I Know Who Killed Me.
She shared this information with Dave Letterman and the rest of the world on the Late Show on Wednesday night. Letterman, likely out of fear of being attacked by one of her large, orange, and often free-range bosoms, threatened cardiac arrest during the show.
Lohan's current movie, Georgia Rule, in which she plays a spoiled, drunken, sexually inappropriate wild child, opens today. In case you forgot, this is the movie which she was filming (or not filming, rather) when the producer wrote her a letter accusing her of not showing up to work for generally being a spoiled, drunken wild child.
It's lovely to see her trying to play against type. Really. Posted 05.11.07 by reelz
