I finally made it toEmma.whichexpanded to very solid numbers in wide release, proving that Jane Austen is still super popular as books-to-movies go.My theater at least was packed on a Saturday night.

Wendyhad a rough second weekend dropping to an under $700 per screen average as it expanded to 69 theaters.Between this result andPanflopping a few years back, perhaps producers should stop funding takes on Peter Pan.There are other stories in the public domain!

In off-chart newsThe Burnt Orange Heresy, The Booksellers,andBrazil'sBacuraualso opened at just a few theaters and Parasite lost half of its screens.It's getting very close to defeatingHerointhe all-time foreign film listbut it might not make it now with fewer screens each week.

Anyone see The Way Back?I thought Ben Affleck was superb.I wonder why they dumped it in March?

Just your daily (sporadic) reminder that Renée Zellweger is a two-time Academy Award winning Actress.
