Identity Thief Steals The Weekend Box Office From Warm Bodies And Side Effects!

identity thief 1

Glad to see that one nasty, completely out-of-line review didn't detract audiences from the GLORY that is Melissa McCarthy!

Hell, even the Snowpocalypse couldn't keep movie-goers away from her!

In fact, despite all of the odds, the actress' new comedy with Jason Bateman, Identity Thief, topped the weekend box by pulling in an estimated $36.6 million…the FIFTH biggest opening ever for a non-sequel R-rated comedy!

Sadly, however, it seems that Blizzard Storm Nemo DID take a bit of a toll on the flick's business, as Universal Studios projected that had it not been for all the snow, it could have surpassed the $40 million mark!

Hey! Whatever!

It still beat out last weekend's #1 film, Warm Bodies AND Channing Tatum's latest collaboration with Steven Soderbergh, Side Effects, which respectively pulled in $11.5 million AND $10 million!

Hansel & Gretel Take Down Movie 43…And All The Other Box Office Competition!

hansel-gretel-witch-hunters-tops-weekend-box-office

As far as the weekend box office numbers are concerned, we guess it was a case of the lesser of two evils!

WELL…maybe not evil! But DEFINITELY the lesser of two SUPREMELY shiteous movies!

While Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was reportedly described as the "the longest 90 minutes you [will] ever spend in a theater," it still managed to make the most money across the United States by garnering the majority of ticket sales from Friday-Sunday and ultimately made around $19 million!

That's right, more folks sat through THAT then Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty AND Django Unchained!

Thankfully, however, the same CANNOT be said for Movie 43 and the hole in hell out of which it crawled, because even with its plethora of A-list talent that we won't further embarrass by naming here, a majority of movie-goers were smart enough to stay FAR away…resulting in a cumulative $5 million and movie reviews that refer to it as LITERALLY the worst movie ever!

OUCH!

But hey! You can find out where Jennifer Lopez's latest Parker fits in among all of thisAFTER THE JUMP!!!

Man Arrested For Choking His Girlfriend With His Dreadlocks??

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLove LineHealth

dreadlocks choking oregon man scary wtf

We. Are. Not. Making. This. Up.

A man in Oregon has been arrested for a slew of things, including second-degree kidnapping, second-degree attempted assault, fourth-degree assault, menacing and domestic violence… because he choked his girlfriend with his super gross dreadlocks.

He was promptly booked into the Multnomah County Jail after a quick search around the neighborhood led to his arrest. As ridiculous as this is, it's still a very serious matter. Domestic violence is never a funny thing, even in this case.

We're glad this girl is okay, that she's safe and got away. We also hope she learned her lesson about dating people with dreadlocks — with hair that big, there may be more than secrets that abound!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzBookz

the-hobbit-an-unexpected-journey-largest-ever-december-domestic-box-office-debut

That's right, folks!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has beat out Avatar!

Peter Jackson's newest adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic debuted this weekend to an estimated $84.8 MILLION weekend box office, which secures it above the James Cameron sci-fi extravaganza as the largest ever domestic debut for a film released in December!

Oh, and with the $138.2 million it made overseas, the flick has made a combined $223 MILLION worldwide!

Holy SHIZ! Way to go, Gandalf!

Or perhaps we should be congratulating the much-criticized high-frame-rate format in which the film was shot, as IMAX theaters playing the film in such averaged $44,000 per screen while regular screens made $31,000!

Either way, they can only go UP from here on out!

Skyfall Reclaims Its Box Office Throne From Breaking Dawn - Part 2!

skyfall-reclaims-box-office-number-one

It's official, folks!

The reign of Twilight over the box office is coming to a close!

After spending three weeks at number one, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 finally lost its footing to not just James Bond, whose latest movie, Skyfall, made it back to the top for the first time in four weekends with $11 million, but also Rise of the Guardians, who came in second with $10.5 million after a slow start!

So where did that leave our beloved Edward and Bella?!

In the number position with $9.2 million, closely followed by Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, with $9.1 million!

We doubt the folks at Summit are TOO upset, though!

The concluding chapter to the sparkling vampire franchise has out-done both Breaking Dawn - Part 1 AND New Moon with a domestic gross of $268.7 million!

Not too shabby, Stephenie Meyer! Not too shabby at all!

Hollywood DOMINATES Thanksgiving! Biggest Box Office For Holiday Weekend On Record!

thanksgiving-weekend-record-breaking-box-office-breaking-dawn-skyfall

Talk about a happy Thanksgiving, Hollywood!

This holiday weekend broke box office RECORDS by making the most money during both the Wednesday-Sunday and Friday-Sunday grosses ever seen, no doubt thanks to the respective releases of Breaking Dawn - Part 2 and Skyfall!

That's right, the final segment in The Twilight Saga had the biggest second weekend for any of the movies in its franchise so far with $43.1 million, which means it's made $227 million in the States alone, and $577.7 million WORLDWIDE!

Yup, we're talking HALF a billion dollars right there!

Meanwhile, the newest Bond movie didn't do too shabby itself, with $36 million alone this weekend, which upped its domestic total to $221.7 million…the highest-grossing in its franchise! Oh, and worldwide, it's put away $494 so far!

Of course, that put quite a dent in the newly released Rise of the Guardians, having only made $24 million so far!

But seriously! Was there any way it stood a chance with THOSE two mammoth blockbusters?!

Yeah, we didn't think so!

Ch-ch-check out a full list of the box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
