The Gross Movie Pool: 2012

8 Movies In 6 Days Wrap-Up The Holidaze - Week 8 Preview

It seems to happen every year around this time where you think there's just one more thing you need before you can truly be ready for the holidays. This year, Hollywood's doing their best to make you think there's not one more thing you're missing, but eight. Yes, because releasing six films around Christmas Day last year made for five underwhelming returns, the studios decided the only way to top that was to get seven underwhelming returns this year!

A Big Opening Was The Expected Journey For The Hobbit - Week 7

It's always interesting to me when hugely successful movies and TV shows are completely avoided by certain sections of the population. Isn't the entire point of pop culture that something created a huge interest or recognition over a large populous? American Idol was the highest rated TV show for years and I know relevant demographic people who swear to have never seen an episode. Harry Potter and Twilight are two of the most successful film franchises ever and it's not hard to find folks who've never seen either of them. This plays a huge factor when determining this weekend's success of The Hobbit: Was it the start of something big or the continuation of something old?

Playing For Keeps Not Even In The Game- Week 6

In a turn of events that would surprise only the most ardent soccer fan with extreme blinders on, if you make a film about the sport that doesn't involve an Indian wedding, Keira Knightley, and prominently feature the name "Beckham" in the title, most people aren't going to notice.

Brad Pitt's 'Killing' Dies Softly - Week 5

If you wonder why there was no Week 5 Preview last week, it's due to the almost annual Post-Thanksgiving tradition of a weak box-office offering. For some reason, Hollywood rarely puts anything high-profile in the weekends immediately following Memorial Day and Thanksgiving. They save these spots as graveyards to drop such films as the Joe Pesci/Danny Glover classic Goin' Fishing and then point to the poor results as proof that people don't want to see new movies on these two weekends. They'll use the same, "See, we told you," after Brad Pitt's latest did nothing to flip the needle this year. Funny, in 2003 Finding Nemo had a $70 million debut the weekend after Memorial Day. Yeah, it's not a list of movies that includes The Warrior's Way, Punisher: War Zone, Awake, and National Lampoon's Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj. It's got to be the weekend to blame for the poor returns!

Filmgoers Go For Leftovers On Thanksgiving Weekend - Week 4

Three new films graced theaters this weekend so people of all ages had something to give thanks for. Family could come together to see Rise of the Guardians, teens and action junkies could go to war with Red Dawn, and... uh... who exactly was Life of Pi for again? Was it just something James Cameron could praise for pushing the 3D technology that he owns and wants other people to use besides just cheep-o horror flicks like My Bloody Valentine? Was it to show the Wachowski siblings that if you're going to try an film an unfilmable book, like they tried with Cloud Atlas, this is how you do it? Was it to show Darren Aronofsky that he wasn't the only filmmaker who could use the word "Pi" in a movie title? The good news is, if it was for folks to forget Ang Lee's involvement with Taking Woodstock three years ago, don't sweat it, buddy. We didn't just forget you directed it, we forgot it even existed.

It's Never Darkest Before This Breaking Dawn - Week 3

In response to the previous question of whether The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 would break down or break up from previous Twilight totals, it appears the answer was... break even? Was that even an option? And if so, how come I never thought of that pun earlier? I feel like Phineas and Ferb's Dr. Doofenshmirtz shouting, "Curse you, Perry the Platypus!" whenever this series is in the movie pools. Whenever I think this franchise is going to take a turn in either direction, it just keeps going straight!

Will Breaking Dawn Break Down or Break Up? - Week 3 Preview

It's hard to believe that it was just four years ago that the battle of Team Edward and Team Jacob first came to the silver screen. It feels as old as General Hospital's Luke & Laura. While, by all accounts, most people think either team could do better than ending up with Bella Swan, none of this has stopped people from flocking to theaters to see an outcome everyone's already known from the very beginning. Sure, the same could be said about the Lord of the Rings movies, yet anything which encourages Tolkien geeks to actually shower and get out of the house once in awhile is something that should be encouraged early and often.
