Welcome to “Movie News Monday/Tuesday” (depending on what area of the world you live!) I hope that your Labor Day was great! Sorry for the delay of MNM, but..as promised..I’m back!!!!! What is MNM all about? Every “Movie News Monday” this is the place for a quick recap of trending entertainment news! Keeping you updated on movies being released, actors/actresses in roles, dvd releases to keep a lookout for, which movie won in the box office over the weekend, etc! Hope you enjoy! Let’s get down to business. Got some goodies to catch you up on!
#1– Weekend Box-Office Winner. This American holiday weekend went to the movie with a similar title. The American defeated Machete and all other titles thru the weekend. With $13million over the very slow weekend, The American crept to the top. Takers placed second with $11.5million, and Machete made the cut at third with $11.3million. Fourth and Fifth places were The Last Exorcism with $7.6million and Going the Distance with $6.9million. Very low earnings over the weekend, but, then again, too many barbeques to go to!! 🙂 I was nowhere to be found at any theater this weekend, myself. (Which is very out of the ordinary!) In other box office news, this weekend marked the 8th week of Inception‘s run in theaters. So far, Inception as accumulated $277.2million!! Pretty impressive!
#2– Sequel Alert: Sequels, Prequels, and Remakes seem to be the “thing” for Hollywood lately. Over the past few editions of “Movie News Mondays”, you’ve learned of several such movies that are in the makings. So….here are a few more titles/projects that I have learned are in negotiations. Keep tabs on your favorite…if there is any. Clash of the Titans (sequel), Kicka$% (sequel), Final Destination5 (sequel to 4), Aliens (Two-part 3D prequel…Ridley Scott to direct), Conan (remake), Journey to the Center of the Earth (sequel…withOUT Brendan Fraser–who is being replaced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), Unbreakable (sequel…Shyamalan rumored to be working on it), The Three Musketeers (remake in 3D), Xerxes (sequel/follow-up to 300…Zack Snyder to direct), and Judge Dredd (remake). Pretty interesting, huh?
#3– “That’s Just Prime!” Footage in the video below shows that “possibly” Sentinel Prime will be featured in Transformers3!!! Sentinel Prime–for those of you who don’t know–was the predecessor of Optimus Prime and led the Autobots until he was killed in a battle on Cybertron. Pretty cool.
#4– Blu-Ray/DVD release to watch for on New Release Tuesday the 7th of September: Killers! Click here to read the review. If you don’t want to buy it, at least rent it! Stream it using CinemaNow, since Netflix will make you wait for a couple weeks for new releases. I’m glad it’s coming out! Don’t miss it.
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
