Box Office Breakdown: Glorious Outing for Inglourious Basterds

Inglourious Basterds

, Inglorious Bastards. However you spell it, it was still a hit.

The WWII-era tale about a band of Jewish-American soldiers hit the mark this weekend with a $38 million debut. Basterds, which more than doubled its nearest competitor, gave his biggest premiere ever. (Kill Bill, Vol. 2 grossed only $25.1 million in 2004.) The director also raked in his best international turnout to date.

Finding himself even further down the list was Tarantino buddy Robert Rodriguez. The director followed up Planet Terror with a $6.4 million outing for the PG-rated . That was enough to give the Warner Bros. feature a 6th place finish.

Box Office Breakdown: Number 1 for District 9

District 9

may not have have any big name stars and it may not be based on a story everyone knows, but it does have something no other film has this Monday: a first place finish.

Over the weekend, the R-rated actioner landed on Earth safely with over $37 million in ticket sales. The sci-fi entry also raked in one of the best per screen averages ($12,251) of any film currently in in theaters. (Sony Pictures Classics’ averaged $13,240 while in limited release.)

In the non-alien department, cornered the romantic genre with an $18.6 million total. Meanwhile, Vanessa Hudgens proved she’s nothing without her better half. The Disney star’s new film, Bandslam, failed to even crack the Top Ten. The teen comedy barely managed to gross over $2 million.

Seth Rogen Calls Katherine Heigl a Hypocrite

Knocked Up

If you thought Katherine Heigl was only alienating the people she works with in television, you’d be wrong. It seems the actress’ big mouth has irked her coworkers in film as well.

In a 2007 interview, the Knocked Up star gave a surprising interview to Vanity Fair about the Judd Apatow comedy. Instead of praise for her box office hit, Heigl called the film “a little sexist.” “It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days. I’m playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women? Ninety-eight percent of the time it was an amazing experience, but it was hard for me to love the movie,” she stated.

Needless to say, her costars weren’t exactly thrilled by her comments.
