When is a $70 million opening not a success? When its predecessor opened to $75 million four years ago. This is the predicament facing 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' which opened at number one at box office while being something of a disappointment.
The season finale of SNL was a bittersweet affair, with many longtime cast members saying their goodbyes before leaving the show. Bill Hader got to give Stefon an epic conclusion, Seth Meyers got to reunite with Amy Poehler and Fred Armisen got to close out the show with a song.
Last night's season finale of SNL was a huge deal. Not because Ben Affleck was hosting (although he was great), but because it was the final episode for Bill Hader and head writer/Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers. The show had to send them off in style and that could only mean one thing: the final appearance of Stefon.
Look, we all knew that 'Iron Man 3' was going to make a whole bunch of money and open at number one at the box office and kick the summer movie season off in style. The question was never "Is 'Iron Man 3' going to make any money?", the question was always "What absolutely absurd amount is 'Iron Man 3' going to make in its opening weekend?"
Everything we knew about the upcoming 'Jurassic Park 4' could fit in a thimble, but now director Colin Trevorrow has dropped a quietly huge piece of information about the film: it'll take place on Isla Nublar, the setting of the original 1993 'Jurassic Park.'
Some will call this a slow weekend, but it may be better to think of it as the calm before the storm. Next week, the summer movie season begins and people are saving their pennies for 'Iron Man 3,' so it's not really surprising that this was an uneventful couple of days at the multiplex. At least the folks behind 'Pain and Gain' can be glad that their film led an otherwise quiet weekend.
Tom Cruise and science fiction are a powerful combination. Although the opening weekend of 'Oblivion' didn't break any records big or small, it's a more than solid start for a non-franchise, non-sequel, non-reboot. That's a sad statement on the current state of Hollywood, but that's another topic for another day.
Although 'Monsters University' reunites much of the original cast of 'Monsters, Inc.,' plenty of new voices have been added to the mix, making this one of the most star-studded Pixar movie to date. Heck, it's DreamWorks-esque how many big names are associated with this movie. The voice actors involved have been slowly revealed over the past few months, but a few more were announced today, including John Krasinski and Nathan Fillion.
After all of the excitement that came with its announcement, things have gotten very quiet on the 'Star Wars Episode 7' front. However, pages from a mysterious 'Star Wars' project titled 'Star Wars: Reclamation' have appeared online, suggesting that Disney may have more in the works than we know about.
