Beyoncé Helps CBS Score Best Super Bowl Ratings EVER!!! BUT… She Couldn't Tackle Madonna's Record!

ymn99wc

Who on this planet with access to CBS WASN'T watching the network with baited breath Sunday eve… to witness the Beyoncé extravaganza/Destiny's Child reunion!!!!

Oh, there was a football game going on too? ADORBS!!

LOLz! Nah we just kid!

Sunday's Super Bowl XLVII was a NAIL-nibbler of a game with the San Fransisco 49ers ALMOST making a crazy comeback, but in the end the Baltimore Ravens reigned supreme…

As did CBS! Sunday's game garnered the HIGHEST SUPER BOWL RATINGS in recorded history with WELL over 100 million peeps watching!

Congrats to EVERYONE involved!

And we're sure Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland helped just a teeeensy weensy bit … although, in the end, Queen B couldn't topple Madonna's record for Super Bowl halftime ratings. Beyoncé’s halftime show megashow, which occurred in the 8 – 8:30 PM ET time slot, scored a 48.2/71; that’s down from the 48.1/72 of Madonna’s 2012 halftime performance.

SO CLOSE! They are both remarkable ladies in our eyes. Screw it, let's call it even, huh?!

If you're curious, ch-ch-check out the top five highest rated Super Bowls …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

The Hobbit Breaks Midnight Records!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry PotterTwilightBookz

Hobbit Midnight Screening Record

12 million at 12 o'clock has a pretty nice ring to it.

But The Hobbit went for the baker's dozen, grossing a record-breaking $13 million at its midnight screenings Thursday night!

This pales in comparison to the midnight grosses of Harry Potter or Twilight, but it's not bad for a book that was written 75 years ago!

Tolkien fans around the country took An Unexpected Journey, setting it on the path to breaking the December opening weekend record as well.

Thirteen million marks the most a December midnight release has ever made, only topping the previous record by The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King.

So Peter Jackson, we're happy and sad for you!

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Has A $141.3 Million Opening Weekend!

Filed under: TwilightBusiness Blitz

the-twilight-saga-breaking-dawn-part-2-eighth-biggest-weekend-opening-ever

Hey! You know that if even the former Presidential candidate is checking it out during its opening weekend, you've got a hit on your hands!

That's right, we're now learning that Mitt Romney contributed to what Summit is estimating to be a $141.3 million debut for the concluding chapter to The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn - Part 2's opening weekend, which marks it as making nearly the exact amount its predecessor, Breaking Dawn - Part 1, made in a similar timeframe, and just below the franchise's record-holder, New Moon!

On a much larger scale, however, the collective gross will mark it as the EIGHTH largest opening weekend for a movie EVER…even though three of the movies ahead of it - The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Hunger Games - all opened this year, as well!

No shame in that, though!

We're delighted to see that our beloved Edward and Bella could close out the year of mega-blockbusters with some sparkles!

But against all odds, James Bond is BACK, and if the current box office is ANY indication…it is with a SERIOUS VENGEANCE!

Liam Neeson For The Win! Taken 2 Tops The Weekend Box Office!

taken-2-box-office-number-one

We wonder if Liam Neeson ever anticipated that at the age of 60, he would be bringing in this kind of money as an action star?!

Doesn't matter! Because it is one helluva REALITY at this point!

The actor's latest movie, Taken 2, made MASSIVE BANK this weekend by pulling in close to $50 million and becoming the third-largest debut for an October release EVER!

Not to mention it doubled what the original made in that time period!

Meanwhile, the only flick that came REMOTELY close to making that kind of money was Hotel Transylvania, and with $26.3 million in the number two spot, we think everyone can agree that it's a bit of a stretch!

And now that Pitch Perfect's release has gone wide, it came in third and pulled in $14.7 million!

Check out the rest of the box office top ten this weekend…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Hotel Transylvania For The Win! Breaks Box Office RECORDS For September!

hotel-transylvania-breaks-box-office-records-month-of-september

Leave it to the vampires!

Apparently, even the animated ones are MASSIVE money-makers!

That's right, the Adam Sandler and Selena Gomez-voiced Hotel Transylvania broke box office records for the month of September by pulling in $43 million during its premiere weekend, which also made it the highest-grossing flick since The Dark Knight Rises!

Meanwhile, Joseph Gordon Levitt recovered from his last flick, Premium Rush, and its weak opening with Looper, which came in second at $21.2 million!

Not too shabby, considering it was only MADE for $30 million!

And even though it's only been released in 335 theaters, Anna Kendrick's Pitch Perfect pulled in $5.2 million, which averages to $15,560 per screen!

AH-Mazing! And so well-deserved!

Here's hoping that the buzz propels it to the top of the list when it gets released wide next weekend!

And ch-ch-check out the full top box office ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
