    Agreed, even my mother in law wanted to see Twilight (her 2nd choice was Bolt)

    Bolt did good given the climate with Twilight opening and Madagascar remaining strong

    If it drops between 40-45% it should have decent legs to make the $80-100m they are anticipating

    Role Models is hilarious (don't remember any offensive gay stuff ), and Twilight was very good.

    Looks like we may have written off Bolt too early, its now on track to make more than Disneys last big grossing CGI feature (Non-Pixar) Meet The Robinsons

    According to Variety:
    Disney’s “Bolt,” playing in 3,654 runs, pulled off a stunning coup in showing a 1.4% increase over last weekend. Family film grossed an estimated $36 million for five days, and $26.6 million for the weekend, for a cume of $66.9 million in its 10th day.
    According to Bloomberg:
    Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- “Four Christmases,” a comedy about a couple forced to visit their families on Christmas, was the top movie at U.S. and Canadian theaters during the Thanksgiving weekend.

    The film from Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros. studio earned $31.7 million during the three-day weekend and $46.7 million during the five-day Thanksgiving holiday that began Nov. 26, box-office tracker Media By Numbers LLC said today in an e- mailed statement.

    “‘Four Christmases” is the perfect Thanksgiving weekend movie,” said Paul Dergarabedian, president of Media By Numbers, in an interview. “Families like this type of movie to really kick off the holiday season.”

    The movie stars Vince Vaughn and Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon in the lead roles.

    Walt Disney Co.’s “Bolt,” an animated film featuring the voices of John Travolta and Miley Cyrus, was second with $26.6 million in weekend sales and $39.5 million during the five-day period. The movie is the first from Walt Disney Animation since Pixar’s John Lasseter took the reins in 2006.

    “Twilight,” the vampire romance popular with teenage girls, dropped to third from first last weekend with $26.4 million during the weekend and $36 million over the Thanksgiving period.
    1. Four Christmases $31.7
    2. Bolt $26.6
    3. Twilight $26.4
    4. Quantum of Solstace $19.5
    5. Madagascar 2 $14.5

    I didn't see Bolt, but I loved Meet the Robinsons more than any of the Pixar flicks. So, kudos for Disney's Bolt!

    Wha? I don't remember anything homophobic. I laughed my ass off during the whole movie.

    Dec. 5th-7th weekend box office numbers in millions:

    1 FOUR CHRISTMASES 18.2
    2 TWILIGHT 13.2
    3 BOLT 9.7
    4 AUSTRALIA 7.0
    5 QUANTUM OF SOLACE 6.6
    6 MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 AFRICA 5.1
    7 TRANSPORTER 3 4.5
    8 PUNISHER: WAR ZONE 4.0
    9 CADILLAC RECORDS 3.5
    10 ROLE MODELS 2.6

    Ouch for Punisher. The R rating and very poor reviews probably killed it. Even Transporter which hasn't been doing great in the box office beat it.

    Given the economy and whats been released, the top half is doing pretty well

    Four Christmases and Bolt headed toward $100m, Twilight headed toward $150m, and 007 and Madagascar 2 headed toward $200m

    Bolt only need $17.5m to surpass Meet the Robinsons (Disneys last CGI attempt) and 007 needs $16m to become the biggest grossing Bond movie of all time. Both will do well over the holidays

    In some ways, the poor economy actually helps the box office. With people taking less trips and cutting back on other expensive entertainment options, movies provide a nice escapism from daily life at an affordable price.

    I went last night to watch it with a girl I work with. It was terrible. She got up halfway through and said she would meet me outside when it was over. The story was poor, and the violence was too much.

    Delgo has secured the spot for #1 worst wide release ever. Not too surprising really. The character designs look horrendous.

    I noticed that movie was playing at the theatre last week, when I saw "The Day the Earth Stood Still". I never heard of the movie at all. After reading the link you provided, I could see why that movie bombed. I thought I would see Eddie Murphy's "Meet Dave" on the top ten worst movie. That movie does deserve to be listed on the top ten after the horrendous opening weekend last summer.
    Some Sectaur Goals:
    #1: Obtain reproductions of each of the five unproduced second series figures including companion beasts and accessories.

    #2: Construct customized figures of-

    Given The Spirit's fresh rating of 16% on rottentomatoes.com, I'm guessing it will not jump up next week. I might rent it down the road. There is nothing out now that I am dying to see, but I want to see Benjamin Button at least as a rental.

    The Spirit was one of the worst movies I ever sat through... I'm surprised it made that much!

    I had no desire to see any of the other opening movies. Especially since I only support Jennifer Aniston if they do a Friends reunion.

    I will most likely rent Benjamin Button as well, like Firefly mentioned.

    The Spirit is up to $15,784,000 now.

    This review makes me proud. Maybe Christina will save the movie.

    The Spirit Movie Review
    5 out of 10 Stars
    By: moviemaven

    Frank Miller's second directorial outing is his vision of Will Eisner's The Spirit. While the look and feel is reminiscent of his own Sin City, the similarities pretty much end there.

    When the film begins, fans of his artwork will be pleased but for some that feeling will fade rather quickly. The story is interesting, the cast is well put together and the girlies are hot but the forced humor has a habit of getting into the brain like a spike.

    This mostly falls on the Samuel L Jackson character, The Octopus. Jackson is his usual over the top tough-guy self but it doesn't translate as well in this medium as it does in say, Pulp Fiction.

    There is a nice little nod to Marathon Man that I'm afraid most viewers will miss but other than that it gets tedious at times and even boring. I found myself watching my watch periodically.

    I definitely have a solid crush on Gabriel Macht now. His portrayal of The Spirit is sexy and alluring and one of my favorite lines from the film is his: "Somebody get me a tie and it damned well better be red."

    Sadly I was not smitten with the film in its entirety and I was not the only one. I heard many grumbles from moviegoers as we left the theater. There was no telltale excited chatter. It was almost as if we were filing out of a funeral.

    I will say that one of the highlights was the end...not only because it was over but because I love Christina Aguilera's version of the song "Falling in Love Again (can't help it)." That kept me glued to my seat through the credits. The film alone could not have done such.

    United Artists/MGM’s Tom Cruise Nazi drama “Valkyrie” thrilled as well. Directed by Bryan Singer in his first feature outing since “Superman Returns,” “Valkyrie” grossed an estimated $14.3 million for a cume of $60.7 million.

    All four titles saw minimal declines from the previous weekend. “Marley” fell 34%, “Bedtime,” 26%, “Button,” 31%, and “Valkyrie,” 33%.

    Lionsgate wasn’t so lucky with its Christmas Day release, Frank Miller’s “ The Spirit.” Pic grossed $3.3 million from 2,509 playdates for an 11 day cume of $17.75. It came in No. 13 for the weekend.

    I am very surprised at people going to Valkyrie. Tom Cruise will continue to keep me away from any movie he is in for a long time to come.
