"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Box Office: Faster and Furiouser

TheFast & Furiousfranchise turned the box office into a regular demolition derby destroying its competition with over 60% of the top ten dollars.It seems absurd to make the comparison but maybe it's a Bondian franchise,the kind that only grows with time?Tokyo Drift,the only entry without Paul Walker or Vin Diesel in the driver's seat was its only underperformer.Okay so maybe the Bond comparison is a bad one since that series has easily survived cast changes.(Not thatFast Fivedidn't benefit from the addition of The Rock.

ForFast & Furious: Sixth GearI think they should race famous vintage movie cars: The Batmobile,Thelma & Louise's Thunderbird convertiable,Bonnie & Clyde's Death Car.  And while we're on the Ian Fleming franchise subject,maybe throw in a musical dream segment starringChitty Chitty Bang Bang;lead feet with twinkle toes!

The Box Office (Actuals)

01 FAST FIVEnew$86.1
02 RIO$14.7(cumulative $104)
03 MADEA'S BIG HAPPY FAMILY$9.8(cumulative $40.8)

08 INSIDIOUS$2.6(cumulative $48.3)
09 HOP$2.6(cumulative $105.4)
10 SOURCE CODE$2.5(cumulative $48.8)

Points of Interest:

Brandon Routh is "Dylan Dog"

  • HOP proves that when you're holiday-themed,it's really wise to open well before the holiday.(I've never understood this with horror movies that choose to openonHalloween weekend.)Hopdid huge box office right up until Easter.Afterwards?A huge 80% drop in attendance despite only losing 10% of its screens.Kill the wabbit kill the wabbit♪ ♫
  • Dylan Dog: Dead of Nightopened wide but still coudn't crack the top ten.Ouch.
  • Best Per Screen Average: Werner Herzog'sCave of Forgotten Dreams.In 3-D!
  • Not every toon opens huge (Hoodwinked!) though it seems the norm (Rio,Rango,etc...)
