"My first R-rated movie in the theater!I'll always have a fondness for it,particularly the one-liners.Anytime I'm in an elevator with certain people,it's a race to say "Jesus,Bob,what button did you push?""-James

"I love this movie!i wish i was old enough to have seen in the Theater."-MJ

What you saw this long holiday weekend.Survey says...

What did you see this weekend?I didn't hit theaters since I was travelling but I finishedJessica Jones(which really improved as it went along) and screeners gave me a second shot atSteve Jobs(Fassy & Kate are just as big a "wow"as they were the first time) and a first go atStraight Outta Compton.In the next 24 hoursThe RevenantandJoyhit my eyeballs.Here's hoping for the best.

12Victor Frankenstein(2,797 screens)$2.3new(cum.$3.4)

With the dismal opening ofVictor Frankenstein(Fox) paired with the muted response toCrimson Peak(Universal) do you think Universal is getting worried about their classic movie monster multiverse plans?Today's audiences maybe don't have a yearning for the gothic flavors of more old school horror?

Apart from Frankenstein and his monster,it was a fairly happy weekend for distributors:Hunger Games 4held stronger in its second weekend thanHunger Games 3(I refuse to do this "part 1 and part 2"padding bullshit anymore);Creed,which was smartly produced on a non gargantuan budget,supposedly made back its budget in its first (holiday) weekend;Spectreis holding well for a Bond film (anyone expecting a repeat ofSkyfall's anomalous numbers was insane);evenThe Good Dinosaur,which opened weak as Pixar films go,shows promise since the audience reaction was very positive and it has no direct competition in the next few weeks.

As for the suspected Oscar contenders things are continuing to look very golden for bothSpotlightandBrooklynwhich are expanding very well and should be peaking at just the right time for Oscar love.WithCarolandThe Danish Girl,though,it's probably too early to tell since they're only on four screens each and competition is fierce and will continue to be (as it always is in November/December) for their target demographic.
