Congratulations to Miz Angelina Jolie!

The very pregnant star had a HUGE opening this weekend - and it wasn't the twins trying to pop out.

Angie's film, Wanted, did huge business at the box office in America.

The movie made $51.1 million and….

- Wanted was the biggest opening of a live action film in Jolie's career
- It turned out to be the best June opening ever for an R-rated movie, beating Knocked Up's $30.6M, and the 6th highest R-rated opening of all time
- The studio expected only a $35+M opening, so the film did much better than anticipated
- Angie proved she is a big draw: Cinemascore said the main reasons given for choosing to see Wanted were the action (67%) and Jolie (61%).

We weren't able to see it this weekend, but we definitely wanna check out the pic this week.

It's been getting great reviews!

    GREAT except she has no points in the film and essentially makes no money based off of the films success. She's a fucking idiot.

    Weak Plot, good action. Dumb ending. Also there's a tiny two secong scene where they show the Lasalle Bank Theater (now Bank of America) and the marquee reads Wicked. I live in Chicago was an Usher for Braodway in Chicago and can tell you Wicked was NEVER at that theater. I thought it was dumb how they changed that.

    Now that some have seen the film, let's just see how well it does next weekend-it will drop harder than loads on Angie's face. The movie SUCKED.

    how could you not want to see her



  21. 21

    I would love to see Angie put Madge in her place.

    Madonna is a faux humanitarian, faux shock-performance artist, etc. Everything about her is mean to draw attention, including her fake causes.

    Angie is the real deal. She may be a slut, but she's a slut with heart.

    Honestly, the movie itself was alright. It seemed like a less intense SHOOT 'EM UP but Angelina Jolie definitely adds some fun to the film. It was okay. But it's definitely no surprise that this movie made that much money. She's hot in the news and James McAvoy has been starring in lots of movies these days. Seems everyone *wanted* to see WANTED this weekend…sorry, I couldn't resist the pun.

    I'm not going for angelina… tsss I'm going for James mcAvoy!! hot hot hot

    I absolutely loved it. Quoting a review I read: "It's got all the action you want in a summer blockbuster and all the Angelina you want in…well, every movie."

  29. Bells says – reply to this

    The movie was amazing…and it had nothing to do with her, everything to do with James Mcavoy.

  30. Littl says – reply to this

    She Rocks in the movie but it's still McAvoy's film; He holds his own with Ang AND Morgan Freeman.
    Good movie!!!!

    great movie. she was soo hot in it

  35. Jill says – reply to this


    35

    Angelina needs to stick with films that require very little acting, strong male leads, non-serious subject matter, guns and blood. If she continues to play the same role over and over (tomb raider, mms, wanted) the film is in the clear. Once good acting is required, she reverts to BOX OFFICE POISON.

    Great movie, I highly encourage you to go see it. All of the actors provide top-notch performances.

    I saw wanted this weekend and it SUCKED. i wanted to see it soooo bad. i hate how the trailer can look fucking awesome and the movie is shit. but i gotta say that living in chicago, it was super cool to recognize all the street corners and attractions. they should did something with navy pier

  38. sam54 says – reply to this


    38

    do not see this movie! they said it was the next matrix, honestly it wasn't that much of a break through, if you saw the previews there is absolutely no reason to see the movie,

    This movie was HOT HOT HOT and Ang and James was also HOT. To those of you that have nothing better to do than call Ang names are idiots. She's at home with a HOT man NOT WORRYING about none of ya'll. Get over it already, NO WOMAN can break up a HAPPY HOME IDIOTS. Jen dropped the ball and losted, so get over it. You people get wrapped up in these celebrity lives way to much LOL.

    Perez, why are you so obsessed with this homewrecking, overrated slut? Is it because she has no morals like yourself?

    Don't bother seeing the movie. It fucking sucked. Was too drawn out, no plot, and is stupid. Jolie does act well, but other than that, worthless. I would like my twelve dollars back.

    Bwahaha! Desperate haters now saying this is not a Jolie's film LOL!!! Well we got a news for you. If it wasn't for Angelina it wouldn't have had such a big success. So sorry another delusion crushed. All your hate, foaming your mouths "nobody wants to see Jolie" all FAILED. On the other hand, some 40 yr old sitcom hag you know who, well, let's drop that for change, shall we. She is looking more and more desperate hanging around some douche. Even I'm feeling sorry for her these days.

    On Brad’s most recent gift to her
    (a gun-charm necklace she wore to her EW photo shoot):
    ”Mad, our 6-year-old, draws lots of war scenarios. He’s all into war and guns. So for Mother’s Day he drew a machine gun, and Brad had it made into a necklace, which is really sweet. It’s really cute. I think it’s really good!”

    meanwhile, MANiston's new film is a step away from straight-to-DVD status (it's been pushed back AGAIN.) damn, first angie takes her man, then her career. MANiston is done.

    ANGIE RULES!!!!

    Just saw the movie, it was awesome. Great script, great action, great acting. I'd definitely recommend it. The only thing upsetting is the James McElroy's accent goes in and out. That was the only flaw.

  54. K says – reply to this


    54

    Don't give her so much credit. I went to see it for one reason and one reason only….JAMES MCAVOY!

  55. amy says – reply to this


    55

    i loved the movie! it was immensely entertaining! and james mcavoy is so cute!

  56. Chris says – reply to this


    56

    THIS is the type of movie people want to see her in. Lara Croft, Mr & Mrs Smith… Her Daniel Pearl movie flopped because nobody wanted to see a story that was tragic and already played out in the media. There is enough shit surrounding us without buying a ticket to see more. Her and Brad make a nice couple. but, she's not as versatile an actor as he is. I'm not a movie theater goer, but, I'll eagerly await this one on HBO.



  57. 57

    I didnt care much for angelina. she's great, yeah.
    but james mcavoy is extremely an talented actor, not to mention he's good looking :P



  58. 58

    this movie was the FREAKIN BOMB!!!!!!!!
    omggg!!!
    ANGELINA IS GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I HAD NO IDEA SHE WAS THAT BEAUTIFUL!!
    && ya she totally drew me to watch the movie and was great!!
    i TOTALLY RECOMMEND!!

    hate on, haters. believe what you want. this movie did well because of ANGELINA JOLIE, period. no other reason. and who the hell is james mcavoy?

    I THINK PEOPLE WENT TO SEE IT BECAUSE OF COMMON. Who wants to see that bony ass heroin-addicted homewrecker who can't act?

  62. Chris says – reply to this


    62

    The movie was freaking AWESOME, and Angelina Jolie is FREAKING HOTTTTT. Love all the haters on here. Jennifer Aniston is A) Ugly, B) Broke, C) Talentless, D) Ugly. To all those saying that it wasn't the number one movie for the weekend, you're right, Wall-E was. You are however comparing a movie rated R to a movie rated G. The movie was amazing.

  63. Rath says – reply to this


    63

    ANGIE WAS BARELY IN THIS FILM!!!! This is a James McAvoy film! God, this bitch will take credit for everything EXCEPT breaking up a marriage. What an ooportunist!

    This movie wasn't very good. I was laughing my head off through the whole movie b/c of how ridiculous it was. James McAvoy is such a hottie though! That was the big attraction for me to see this movie!

    Aside from the LOONIES, what self-respecting person would see this film because of a third rate extra? People saw this film because a: JAMES MCAVOY and b: NOTHING else new came out this weekend and, unless you reserved tickets for THE NUMBER 1 FILM, WALL-E, which was sold-out this movie was THE LAST RESORT!



  68. 68

    James McAvoy was hott and amazing! great movie!

    'Wanted' is tops overseas

    hey as long as that ugly long chinned man face big nosed MAN-iston whore is not in it, sounds good to me—-love Angelina and her big heart and soul, great acting skills and talent, hate that fucking pretentious cunt Chinafer Maniston. Her movies all suck, they all bomb, and all it is is like watching her one trick pony ass do "Rachel Green" on the big screen.

    sorry haters her movies are #1 & #2 in the world, and #2 & #4 in the US, and "The world was shocked…" btw it wasn't because of mcavoy, you should make a little research before writing bs, cause polls showed that 61% of the public who saw the movie was because of angelina…
    haters go to scream at the ocean LOL



  78. 78

    Not to mention, Angelina is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!!!
    Jennifer is anything but good looking with her big nose thisclosetogether eyes and man chin.



  79. 79

    Coming in second is not impressive or as interesting as you'd leave one to think it was. The whores movie was beat out by a Pixar movie and that's what the headline should read not the bullshit must have wanked off to as you typed it out

  86. CMON says – reply to this


    86

    People went to see this movie because of HER? So what's her excuse for all the other films she's been it that simply BOMBED? It's interesting that she was all but erased from "her" children's film (KFP) due to the unholiness of such an alliance (wholesome, kid flick attached to a heroin-addicted, child collecting slut) however, where blood, guns, acting like a whore, and being nude come into play- all extentions of the "real" Angelina Jolie Voight, it's perfectly reasonable to use her in promotions of such. Her "children" must be so proud. Just wait until the poor little things grow up and figure it all out. I shudder to think of the repercussions of such.

    I LOOOOOVES me some Angie!!! I like seeing her and Brad 2gether. Seriously, I think they make the world a better place.

    Oh, and I love the way peeps that call her a "homewrecker" and call her names just adore Dennise Richards and Rose McGowan and feel "husbands can't be stolen". Whatevs. What do those two sluts do that isn't for themselves? And don't say shit about Dennise's kids…bitch puts them to bed and makes them pray in front of an entire CAMERA CREW!!!!!!

    Those are some pretty impressive records! Well, impressive in that they are so contrived. I heard she also broke the record for "Biggest Opening in June 2008 of a movie starring Angelina as a hitwoman", "Biggest Opening of a movie derived from many other movies you've already seen before, starring someone who's never had a hit movie before", "Biggest Opening of a movie starring a whore with major personality disorders who shoots a gun in the film while riding on the hood of a car"…really, she just continues to break so many "records". It's amazing!
