The Gross Movie Pool: 2012

Has The Dark Knight Rises Already Fallen? - Weeks 12 & 13

Many poolers believed this season was going to be a two horse race. Either you went with the returning favorite, The Dark Knight Rises, to trump or at least match the huge peek The Dark Knight achieved... or, you believed the culmination of five super-hero films would make the biggest super-hero movie of all-time in The Avengers. Sure, you could've gotten lost in the details like would Scarlett Johansson or Anne Hathaway look better in a skin-tight catsuit, had either Tom Hardy or Jeremy Renner meant enough to anyone to play such important roles as Bane and Hawkeye, or how either film could be successful without a Nickelback song being played over the ending credits. Regardless, the proof seems to be in the pudding, and it seems to be a little lumpy if you went with The World's Greatest Detective.

Ice Age Melts The Spider Out - Week 11

I always applaud studios who offer challenging questions to young filmgoers. In Ice Age: Continental Drift, the audience is on an intellectually breathtaking journey probing one of the greatest philosophical questions of all-time: Are the continents still drifting apart or have we reached the breaking point where now they're actually drifting closer together. While this seems a scientific question, it crosses into our social realm. Once people spread out from their tribes to make something different from themselves. Have we finally reached the point where we value what society can do together collectively? I am so proud for Sony putting this into their... Wait, I'm sorry, what? This is about animals so dumb they're extinct now and a prehistoric squirrel who hasn't been able to get an acorn in over four movies? Nevermind.

Spidey Swings And Hits A Triple With An Error - Week 10

Two years ago Sony subsequently canceled a Sam Raimi-helmed Spider-Man 4 while announcing a brand-new cast and director for a rebooted The Amazing Spider-Man. The studio pledged to take the character back to high-school, sign more age-appropriate actors, and made very clear to say it was "not" going to be an another origin story. Peter Parker would already be Spider-Man when the film began. If Sony wasn't going to read their own press release, why do they think we should?

Ted Is Plush; Mike Is Magic; Madea Protected - Week 9

Audiences have rejected three movies in the past two weekends: Tom Cruise in the 80s (to his credit, he has remained faithfully married... just to a different woman each decade), Adam Sandler acting like he was in the 80s, and Abraham Lincoln in the 1800s. Who could have guessed they would've gravitated to all three movies this weekend?

Brave Opens Bold; Vampire Hunter Has No Bite - Week 8

Curly locks, arrows, and Scottish accents dominated the weekend as Pixar's Brave carried it's "if you could change your fate, would you" message to theater owners. A fearless $66.3 million opening is valiant enough to be the 5th largest Pixar debut, just behind Up's $68.1 million which continued to soar up and up all the way to $293 million. Not too shabby. Sounds fantastic! Looking a little closer though, you'll notice the film now at 6th place on the opening list was last year's Cars 2 with $66.1 million.

It's A Brave New World For Abraham Lincoln - Week 8 Preview

You have to go back five years to find the last time a Pixar film hasn't made the Top Five in the season it was released. Ratatooie (look, if I can barely spell words in English, please don't ask me to spell words in French)cleared $200 million in the summer of 2007, yet couldn't come up with the right recipe to stop the "cubed" movies of Spider-Man 3, Shrek 3, and Pirates 3, the first Transformers, and the fifth Harry Potter.

Rock of Ages More Of A Pebble; Sandler's Not Anyone's Boy - Week 7

Every now and then, America rejects a movie. They say "Been there, done that," they say "Yeah, but when does hilarity ensue?" or even "Seriously... that's a movie?" It can happen to terrible movies such as From Justin To Kelly or even to really good ones like Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. It could have a star or a non-star or Star Jones, for some reason folks just give let it pass. It happens. However, for it to happen to two movies in the same weekend that cost a combined almost $150 million to make? That's not a rejection. That's a restraining order.
