Mark Wahlberg's Lone Survivor DESTROYS The Competition With A Huge Opening Weekend!

lone survivor still doodle

We're guessing Marky Mark is feeling those good vibrations right about now because that dude is on top of the movie-making world!

The gritty new war film he stars in, Lone Survivor, just enjoyed a $38.5 million dollar opening weekend and easily dominated its box office competition!

Not only did Peter Berg's critically acclaimed flick oust Disney's Frozen from the top spot, but it straight-up OBLITERATED two other big name films that also opened this weekend.

In fact, it nearly TRIPLED the combined total grosses of Joaquin Phoenix's Her ($5.4 mil) and Julia Roberts' August: Osage County ($7.3 mil)!!

Katy Perry Is Now More Popular Than Justin Bieber On Twitter! Sorry Bieby!

Filed under: Katy PerryTwitterJustin Bieber

After 9 months on top of the Twitter throne, Justin Bieber is no longer the most popular tweeter in Tinseltown.

That's right! There is a new tweeting queen in town and her name is Katy Perry!

The roaring songstress is officially the most popular person on the social media site with over 46,477,000 followers following her every last 140-character-or-less post.

But just like her insanely successful career, such an honor didn't come without some fine finessing of the tweeting craft.

In an interview with USA Today, Katy explained:

727-Pound Record Setting Gator Caught In Mississippi

Filed under: AlligatorAmazingHunting

Whoa!! That's one heck of an alligator!!

Alligator hunting season has only just begun in Mississippi and the state record for heaviest gator has already been broken twice.

In the same day!!

First, a 723.5-pound, 13.5-foot-long gator was caught, breaking the record by 26-pounds.

Then, later that day, Dustin Bockman and his buddy Cole Landers (who both have '70s porn star names) caught a 13-foot-long, 727-pound gator!!

Bockman said:

"He broke all the lines we could put in him. Finally put a snare on him and got him up high enough and put a shot on him. All in all, probably took us four and a half hours to catch him from the first time we saw him. My goal was to get a 10-footer. I couldn't believe it when it was that big."

That's crazy there are gators that big and that common!

We don't like anyone killing animals ever but maybe people will sleep a little easier knowing this beast is out of the water.

Check out the video (above) to see the record breaking beast.

Rihanna's Right Now Puts Her Second To Madonna In Billboard's No. 1 Dance Hit Record!

Filed under: MadonnaRihannaMusic Minute

rihanna madonna billboard record

Who will win this one?!

Rihanna and Madonna are battling it out for the title of artist with the most No. 1 Billboard Dance/Club Party songs!

What with RiRi’s ability to put out hit after hit, it seems her tracks are gaining on Madge’s as the Diamonds singer's latest, Right Now, has just reached the top of the chart as her 20th No. 1!!

Regardless, we think Madonna's claim is safe for now. Rihanna’s 20 hits are less than half of the Queen of Pop’s 43! Whoaaa!

This bad girl will just have to be content with the silver medal for now!

Either way, CONGRATS!

Fast & Furious 6 CRASHES At The TOP Of The Box Office While No One Is Interested In A Third Hangover!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

ibstf9edrq4uzn

We guess movie goers are FINALLY hungover when it comes to The Hangover franchise!

While the third and final installment of the comedic trilogy made a solid $42.4 million in its opening weekend, it was NO MATCH for the latest Fast & Furious sequel, Fast & Furious 6, which DOMINATED with an insane $98.5 million!

And that's not all it's expected to make, given that Memorial Day is tomorrow!

In fact, if it does as well as it's estimated to do - around $122 million - then it will become the FOURTH-HIGHEST opening for the holiday EVER!

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. president of distribution Dan Fellman, responsible for The Hangover Part III, admits:

"It was a little surprising that we didn't reach the $80 million mark, but I can't look at a $63 million or $64 million opening and say it wasn't solid. Obviously, the first choice was Fast 6, but hopefully people will get a dose of that film and then come back to us."

Guess we'll have to see and find out!

Oz Remains Great And Powerful! Highest-Grossing Film Of 2013!

box office top ten

Finally! An actual, successful movie in 2013!

For the second week in a row, Oz the Great and Powerful topped the box office this weekend, pulling in $42.2 million and securing it as the year's highest-grossing film so far, with a domestic total of $145 million!

Nice!

But props also need to go to Halle Berry, whose new movie The Call followed up in the number two spot with $17.1 million, secured the actress her biggest non-X-Men movie opener since Gothika! AND with a reported budget of $15 million, it's already made back its cost…and then some!

Sadly, the exact opposite happened to Steve Carell, whose new comedy Burt Wonderstone secured the actor the worst opening for a comedy he has headlined with only $10.3 million!

OUCH!

But hey! It still came in #3, so that's something!

Right?

Check out the full box office top ten for this weekend…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
