Box Office: Doctor Strange,A Man Called Ove,and More...

What did you see this weekend?

The bulk of the moviegoing nation went to eitherDoctor Strange(reviewed) orTrollsas expected.Doctor Strange's nearly 85 million is a major success for Marvel Studios,though weaker than theGuardians of the Galaxylaunch it was quite a lot stronger than theAnt-Manlaunch.It's already earned over $325 million globally.When is Marvel going to have their first flop?It seems a long way off,doesn't it?

Mr Burton's Box Office For CGI Whimsy

If you were a peculiar orphan with supernatural powers could you imagine anyone more perfect than Eva Green to be your guardian?Tim Burton may not be the director he used to be in quality or bankablity but he was smart to latch on to Eva Green as his latest pale skinned raven haired muse.She ran so many circles around everything else that was happening inDark Shadows(2012) it's a miracle that it was her character and not the film that cracked apart and crumbled.Her reviews are strong again for this new fantasy film.

In limited release it's clear by now that niche distributors need to study whatever it is companies like FIP and China Lion are doing because they keep managing strong opening weekend grosses for Bollywood films and Chinese films without so much as a sliver of traditional US media promotion.

What did you see this weekend?

I got a cold (boo) so I missed a screening or two (no one needs someone sneezing through a whole movie while they're watching it) but did manage to catch up with the Molly Shannon cancer dramedyOther People(and thereviewandinterviewright here) which were all quite enjoyable.

Thoughts I Had While Looking at the Miss Peregrine... Poster

Just in time for the kiddies' spring break movie fever,we've started to see teases for the new teen-targeted Tim Burton featureMiss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.Based on the young adult book series by Ransom Riggs,there's a feast of spooky oddities that fit right into Burton's sensibilities.However,the first looks suggest that he's playing into his current era's weaknesses.The trailer and some thoughts I had staring at the new posterafter the jump...

Eva Green's Peculiar Children and Geena Davis Returning to TV

Laurencehere with a couple of juicy actress news tidbits.After a string of well-cast disappointments,we're all hoping for a return to Tim Burton magic this year with his new filmMiss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.We finally have some images from the film,which has what might be Burton's most formidable (live-action) cast sinceBig Fish,including Judi Dench,Samuel L.Jackson,Allison Janney,Terence Stamp,Kim Dickens and Rupert Everett.Whoa.

Most importantly,though,here's Eva Green in the title role.[More...]

Not since the costuming department of "Mad Men"got ahold of Christina Hendricks has a pair of mammaries been so lovingly showcased.In fact,the accentuating bronzer is liberally applied not only on Henry Cavill's heroic bosom,but also Luke Evans' grimly clenched ab muscles and Stephen Dorff's morally questionable obliques.

"Morally questionable obliques."Hee!

Speaking of morally questionable...I lurvethis Puss in Boots piece at Ultra Cultureon Puss's "synthetic heterosexuality".It's pretty great.
