rl stines new book headed to theaters

Maybe this will spur some movement on that Goosebumps movie…

Children's horror book author R.L. Stine's new book It's the First Day of School…Forever! is heading to theaters!

The book has been optioned by Gotham Group, who are currently looking to attach a screenwriter before getting a studio involved.

Gotham Group CEO/founder Ellen Goldsmith-Vein has referred to the book as "a thoroughly reimagined Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Groundhog Day." Intriguing.

The story revolves around 12-year-old Artie, whose first day at school is the worst day of his life, and he keeps re-living it….SO he must find a way to "change his nightmare."

For those of you who would be TOO scared to watch R.L. Stine's work on the big screen, the author's also got a TV series called The Haunting Hour, which is currently airing on The Hub Network.

Will U go see R.L. Stine's Groundhog Day-like movie when/if it hits theaters?

The Easter Bunny Hops To First Place At The Weekend Box Office

Happy early Easter!

Kids were jumping for joy at the movies this weekend to see bunnies poop jelly beans.

Yup, Universal's Hop debuted at the number one spot at the box office this weekend. The animated/live-action film, starring Russell Brand and James Marsden, made $38.1 million, which was better than expected.

Universal must be hopping for joy because it's the biggest opening of any other film this year so far.

Meanwhile, Jake Gyllenhaal's Source Code didn't come in first place, but it still did fairly good, opening with $15.1 million.

The inexpensive horror film, Insidious, came in third with $13.5 million.

Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch took a huge blow as it dropped 68% from the previous weekend, grossing only $6.1 million for the weekdn.

So far, that's been the biggest second-weekend drop of any movie this year.

Ouchie.

Rounding out the top five was Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, which fell 57% and and grossed $10.2 million.

Sucker Punch Gets Punched Out At The Box Office

It was a family affair this weekend.

Zack Snyder's much-hyped, but critically panned film, Sucker Punch, had a weak opening weekend, bringing in a total of $20 million.

Warner Bros. had "spent a fortune pumping it up" since the film was rumored to cost around $100 million to make.

Yikes!

Meanwhile, The Wimpy Kid franchise is proving to be a hit.

The family-friendly sequel, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, took the number one spot at the box office, with $24 million.

The film only cost $21 million to make, which is pretty impressive. In fact, with the film's success, a script for a third Wimpy Kid is already in the works.

Bradley Cooper's Limitless came in third place with $15 million while Matthew McConaughey's The Lincoln Lawyer took the fourth place spot with $10.5 million.

Johnny Depp's animated feature, Rango, was still going strong, staying in the top five with $10 million. The film has made a cumulative $106.5 million so far. Wowsa!

So, what did U see this weekend??

Maybe it's about time for Jennifer Aniston to rethink her acting career!

Maniston's The Bounty Hunter only hit #3 at the box office this weekend, with Alice in Wonderland and the film adaptation of Diary of a Wimpy Kid taking the respective #1 and 2 spots!

The predictable romantic comedy, featuring Man and Gerard Butler, is only expected to earn $20.5 mil by the weekend's close!

Pretty shitty considering the movie cost $50 million to make!
