Box Office Breakdown:  Knocked Up Delivers A Winner

Viewers in dire need of some raunch helped make Knocked Up a strong 2nd this weekend. Katherine Heigl’s stomach bumped past several family-friendly sequels of late and brought a fresh dose of adults-only fun into the box office.  Although it didn’t surpass the strong swashbucklers in Pirates, Knocked has already grossed enough money to cover its entire production budget.  Something few other movies on this list could probably say.  With strong word of mouth, director …

The Preview Review: May 28 – June 1, 2007

This is the very first edition of The Preview Review.  Here at FilmCrunch, we are tired of being deceived by flawless movie trailers for films that, in the end, are better left out of theaters and away from audiences.  In other words, the best-looking trailers often beget the worst-made films.  This weekly exposé will attempt to flush out those elements that make good previews go bad, and hopefully we’ll uncover a few coming attractions worth …

Box Office Breakdown:  Sparrow vs. Spidey

Yo, ho…whoa. As predicted, Captain Jack Sparrow’s resurrection raked in serious booty helping the Pirates franchise score another box office record.  The Memorial Day Weekend crown was snatched away from last year’s holder, X-Men: The Last Stand. But one thing POTC: At World’s End did not do was take back the title for any three-day weekend.  It’s $139.8 million dollar domestic take fell a bit short from the $151 million raised by Peter Parker et …

Box Office Breakdown:  Shrek Seeing A Lot of Green

I believe somewhere out there Justin Timberlake is crediting himself for this… Two weeks ago, Spider-Man 3 broke box office records for a debut weekend.  Now Shrek the Third gets the honor for ticket sales of an animated feature (beating the animated record established by Shrek 2).  The $121 million take is the third largest opening for any movie…right behind Spidey 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. Of course in just seven …

Box Office Breakdown:  Rabid Zombies Barely Get A Bite

Compared to it’s record-breaking debut ($150 million), Spider-Man 3‘s recent weekend take ($58 million) may seem like a dramatic fall.  But when your worst is still six times higher than your closest competitor’s best, who cares?? The biggest surprise this week?  Not the ho-hum performances of 28 Weeks Later or Georgia Rule.  After weeks and weeks in the Top 10, Blades of Glory and Are We Done Yet? have finally left the building! ... …

Box Office Breakdown:  Viewers Get Caught Up In A Sticky Web

Let’s see if it’s possible for me to say something terribly surprising… Spider-Man 3 scored the largest domestic debut for a movie ever ($59.8 million on Friday).  Two days later, it broke the box office record for the highest grossing weekend ever ($151 million).  Both records were previously set by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. With no strong competitors next week, Spidey is bound to stay on top.  But all things could change …

FilmCrunch 047: Half Nelson Review

Veronica Santiago and Neil Estep review Half Nelson in this episode of FilmCrunch: Dan Dunne, an idealistic inner-city junior high school teacher, inspires his 13 and 14-year-olds to examine everything from civil rights to Civil War with a new enthusiasm. Rejecting the standard Civil Rights curriculum in favor of an edgier approach, Dan teaches his students how change works—on both a historical and personal scale. Though Dan can get it together in the classroom, he spends …

Box Office Breakdown:  Four More Days ‘Til Spidey…

With no big movie premieres last weekend (and yes, I am ignoring the fact that Next exists), I’m really not surprised to see that Disturbia once again took the top spot.  But we shouldn’t expect that film to be sitting pretty much longer.  With Spider-Man 3 about to spin its web at the end of the week, all bets are off.  But we still gotta hand it to young Shia—three times at #1 is an …
