On Tuesday, a jury from the Erath County District Court found Eddie Ray Routh guilty for the murder of Chris Kyle, the inspiration for the Clint Eastwood-directed film American Sniper.

In February 2013, the 27-year-old shot Kyle and Chad Littlefield at the Rough Creek Lodge and Resort's shooting range in Texas.

The former member of the Marine Corps had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, claiming he was under psychosis when he released fire on the Navy Seal and his friend. A veteran of the Iraq war, he had been diagnosed with schizophrenia since becoming a soldier.

Filed under: TV NewsFilm Flickers

spongebob squarepants movie makes 56 million

Who saw this coming?!? Seriously?!? WHO?!?

Bradley Cooper's American Sniper has been the top of the box office for the past four weeks, but it was ousted by an unlikely film…

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water! It basically blew it out of the water! LOL!

The Nickelodeon cartoon opened with an impressive $56 million at the box office this weekend!

Which is pretty impressive seeing as during the height of Spongebob's popularity in 2004, the first film only opened to $32 million!

Another fact to have helped the film is that they haven't aired any new episodes of the show since 2013, so fans were obvi craving some new Spongebob action!

What do YOU think? Were YOU surprised by the winner of the box office this weekend?!

What's surprising about American Sniper is that usually movies don't make this much money until summer, but this flick seems to resonate with most people. Also because Bradley Cooper is so hot right now!

On just Friday alone, American Sniper brought in $30.5 million!

The last record for a January movie was held by Avatar, who made $68.5 million during one weekend in 2010.

So, if you haven't seen it yet, you're probably missing out!

American Sniper Sets Christmas Box Office Records!

Filed under: Film FlickersClint Eastwood

no title

Pretty darn good for a flick that was only in select theaters!

Bradley Cooper's new film American Sniper has set a new Christmas record, becoming the most lucrative film for a title that was only screened in less than 10 theaters. It brought in $212,500 for a 4-day per-theater average.

It was also one of 2014's biggest limited releases!

And it's understandable since the Clint Eastwood-directed flick has an A+ CinemaScore, meaning both males and females like it, as well as people over and under 25 years old.

American Sniper will hit other theaters on January 16th.

Are YOU planning on seeing it???
