    Wonderbust is opening against Tyler Perrys film..lets see if Jens star power that you claim she has can beat Perrys film..

  • Observer2

    Let’s see, Brad is in two potential Oscar nod movies for him this year, TOL and MB.

    I mean, nothing against Sandler, he seems like good people and he’s got a built in audience, that caters to the lowest denominator. I’m sure Jack and Jill with Katie Holmes will do well too. Will these same people say that it was due to Katie Holmes? LOL. I think not.

    But, Lenny left her sick mother and has Squiggy spending 450K of her money. While he gets the bill for take out and some kitchen gadgets.

    I’m not sure that JGWI has helped her much. I mean, Wanderbust got moved back. And again, what is Lenny’s next movie? And how much is she going to make?

    Poor Brad, having to try and figure out what movie to do next.

    Man’s got World Wide Global Box Office Appeal. That’s why he gets paid the big bucks. And then there is Angelina, who is the biggest female star in the world. Poor thing, having two studios vie for her for the same movie and basically backing a Brink’s truck up to her door way and she still said no. The movie finally went to Sandra B.

    That’s right, Lenny takes on movies that even Katherine Heigel turns down. That’s clout.

  • Ang

    LOL at the trolls bringing up the HB movie as a comparison for success. SS was in that movie 15 min. and they claim it is her success those dimwitts. Come back to gloat when she can open a movie on her own name. If you look at her movie history, the only ones that are successfull are when she plays in an assembly cast and others carry the weight or second fiddle to a bigger male star. As usual she piggybacks on the talent of others.

  • Deja Vu

    @KA-BOOM:
    IB had Pitt as lead, heck he was the main person on the poster, and not all Quentins movies do well i believe some of yall predicted it would bomb,,i guess you forgot about Benjamin Button too, both movies made 300mil WW. AND was ciritically acclaimed with Oscar nominations…dont be mad because your idol cant carry a movie nor get nominated for awards while Brad and Angie can

  • Observer2

    Lenny only gets her full asking price when there is a guaranteed male co-star that can pull in the audience.

    Like producers say, Lenny is the last piece that gets put in place. She doesn’t get movies going around her. She’s like a removable piece that can be played by anyone.

  • Moneyball Rules!

    silly- of all of those movies you CLAIM that Brad had co-star box office “help”, the ONLY co-star that has carried their own BIG WW box office- ANGIE- yes, they are a perfectly matched couple in SO MANY ways. More great Moneyball praise:

    iamBenLyons Nice! RT @Sulli24: Just watched #Moneyball and @iamBenLyons was right. Baseball fan or not, you’ll love this movie.

  • Deja Vu

    Hey KA-BOOM whens goiree girls getting made..lol cant even get a movie financed and you have the nerve to compare your idol to Pitt..go sit down somewhere

  • an oldie

    Brad and Angelina don’t even have publicists. Ticky has the huvane klan, Huffo, Handjob, and some of the entertainment show hosts. Still she is relegated to play the dumb sidekick to Vince, Owen, Adam, etc… I watched TBU, and couldn’t believe she agreed to do that movie. It made almost $120M, but so what? It was a shiitty role good for a C-lister.

  • yolly

    @Carly: Eversince, Brad is with Angie, his films choices are all good.Glad MoneyBall did good at the box office, I watched it Yesterday & I love it.He is wearing the necklace with the pendant that Angie gave him , how sweet is that? Brad & Angie, you are on top of your league. God bless the Jolie-Pitt Family.

  • Observer2

    Yeah, when is her little passion project, The Boring Girls going in front of the camera? She keeps talking out of both sides of her mouth on that one. It was supposed to film two years ago. Did she get the rights back after Overnight said, h e l l to the no to financing it after Management and S h i t Happens tanked?

    She can’t even get an indie movie green lit. She should put her money where her mouth is, but, she even knows. LMAO!

    And though it’s for a very good cause and I’m not going to knock them for that. But, a Lifetime movie? We always said, that’s where she’d end up.

  • Observer2

    Trolls are idiots. Here is one trying to fight the fight for Lenny and ends up throwing her under the bus. Good times.

  • Hot Dad Brad

    Yes, Brad was SO FABULOUS in Moneyball- I loved the parts with his “daughter” too- just adorable…you can see what Angie means about what an amazing father Brad is- I love this from her most recent Vogue interview:
    ___
    And that’s when I fall, you know, when I have my moments of getting—whoarr!—caught up in how much I love him . . . it’s usually when I see him with the children.”
    —-
    From the inside, Brad and Angelina are two hardworking parents with in-demand skill sets who manage their work/life/family balance as best they can, while fitting in philanthropy on top. From the outside, they’re people who can shut down Toronto. I pick Toronto only because I witnessed Brad Pitt do just that in 1997, for the Seven Years in Tibet premiere. Screaming Bradmaniacs confined him to his hotel room for 48 hours, while costar David Thewlis strolled around unbothered. “For a man, being as beautiful as Brad is almost an affliction,” Thewlis told me at the after-party. When I tell Angelina this tale, her eyes dance and she gets very gurgly. “Well, he’s a handsome man.” Yes! And? “No, I think he’s an extremely sexy—extremely handsome and the most sexy. . . . When I think about him, I just think of the man who’s such a great friend and such an extraordinary father. And that’s when I fall, you know, when I have my moments of getting—whoarr!—caught up in how much I love him . . . it’s usually when I see him with the children.”

  • Tree

    Whoever is calling Moneyball boring must have a real low IQ. Just like how it is ridiculous to call “Tree Of Life” a flop. One needs a brain to understand these type of movies.

    Ticky’s dud comes out the Friday BEFORE the Oscars not after. It will already have bombed by Sunday night. It’s hard to promote a movie after it’s already opened and gone splat with a big fat 7% Rotten Tomatoes rating and Tweets ripping it as a dog. How would Eddie Murphy introduce her? “Ladies and gentleman please welcome “everyone’s favorite friend” who’s every feature film flops because nobody will pay to see her be Rachel in a movie when they can watch see Rachel up to 15 times a day thanks to the wonder of syndication. In fact, her movies are so bad and make so little money…she’s the white me! (insert Eddie’s snorty-laugh here).”

    Weekend B.O. Brawl! ‘Lion King 3D’ Still #1, ‘Moneyball’ Edges ‘Dolphin Tale’ For #2, Twilighter Taylor Lautner’s ‘Abduction’ #4, De Niro/Statham/Owen’s ‘Killer Elite’ #5

    2. Sony’s much-hyped newcomer Moneyball is now officially the best baseball-themed opening ever. It opened No. 1 Friday with $6.7M and then soared +27% to $8.5M Saturday from 2,993 theaters. (As a Sony exec told me, “$6 million would be great. $7 million amazing. $8 million would be a triumph.”) With that healthy adult bump, it’s looking at a $21M weekend which is on target with the studio’s expectations. That solid number helps keep Brad Pitt’s star wattage shining and his awards chances climbing because of this well-reviewed male-centric sports movie that scored 94% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. (As Deadline Hollywood’s Awards columnist Pete Hammond opined out of the Toronto Film Festival: “This is a classic movie star role in the tradition of something that Robert Redford or Paul Newman would have done in their prime. He has never been better, and the movie is the best sports film since Bull Durham, a real triumph considering the long and winding road it took to get to the screen.”)

    It’s looking like The Lion King will win the weekend with Moneyball and the dolphin flick neck-and-fin for #2 and #3. What kind of moron pays $15 to see a 20 year-old movie they’ve probably seen a dozen times just because the studio is passing out 3D goggles to watch it? No wonder this country is broke ass…

    Weekend B.O. Brawl! ‘Lion King 3D’ Still #1, ‘Moneyball’ Edges ‘Dolphin Tale’ For #2, Twilighter Taylor Lautner’s ‘Abduction’ #4, De Niro/Statham/Owen’s ‘Killer Elite’ #5
    .By NIKKI FINKE | Saturday September 24, 2011 @ 10:25pm PDT
    SATURDAY PM, 4TH UPDATE: This has been a shifting-like-quicksand weekend for North American box office, with the Top 2 order changing again as of Saturday night. Everyone agrees that Lion King 3D is No. 1 but Moneyball and Dolphin Tale are neck-and-neck for #2. Some studios are picking the baseball tale while others are choosing the maimed mammal. On Friday night, I also couldn’t get clarity because of Rentrak hiccups during the day. Can’t we all just get along, especially when I’m supposed to be on vacation? This order could change again Sunday morning, but for now:
    .
    1. Even Disney is surprised that its Lion King 3D is in first place tonight from 2,330 theaters after its huge first-place finish last weekend. But rival studios tell me it got a boost Friday from the rain back East for a $6M Friday for an excellent hold. And another giant kiddie matinee bump on Saturday for as much as $9.5M. That’s a $22M weekend as well and only a modest -30% decline. This re-release is projected to hit a cume of as much as $61.5M by Monday. Here’s my question: Why is it that in all the promotional hype I’ve been sent by the studio about this pic, no one at Disney is thanking Jeffrey Katzenberg for micro-managing the original? C’mon, Mouse House, give credit where credit is due. Even if Jeffrey is a big pain in everyone’s ass.
    .
    2. Sony’s much-hyped newcomer Moneyball is now officially the best baseball-themed opening ever (Not accounting for inflation or higher ticket prices, it beat Benchwarmers’ $19.6M, The Rookie’s $16M, and A League Of Their Own‘s $13.7M.) It opened No. 1 Friday with $6.7M and then soared +27% to $8.5M Saturday from 2,993 theaters. (As a Sony exec told me, “$6 million would be great. $7 million amazing. $8 million would be a triumph.”) With that healthy adult bump, it’s looking at a $21M weekend which is on target with the studio’s expectations. That solid number helps keep Brad Pitt’s star wattage shining and his awards chances climbing because of this well-reviewed male-centric sports movie that scored 94% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. (As Deadline Hollywood’s Awards columnist Pete Hammond opined out of the Toronto Film Festival: “This is a classic movie star role in the tradition of something that Robert Redford or Paul Newman would have done in their prime. He has never been better, and the movie is the best sports film since Bull Durham, a real triumph considering the long and winding road it took to get to the screen.”) Audiences really liked this pic: it received all A’s — male, female, young, old — from CinemaScore. But a rival studio exec points out that almost 60% of that audience was over age 50. Sony believes Moneyball could play strongly through the Fall generating a multiple that could very well exceed 4X and 5X its opening.
    .
    3. Very close behind is Alcon Entertainment’s Dolphin Tale distributed into 3,507 theaters by Warner Bros. It opened with $5.1M Friday and zoomed to $8.6M Saturday heading for a $20M weekend. Alcon expected the heartstrings-pulling pic to jump 60% on Saturday because of the family film bump and did +70% more. Remember, it’s also playing in the most theaters. According to CinemaScores, parents and kids audiences are giving it an A+. “The film is very inspirational, and tracking is terrific. We will own the family marketplace,” an exec told me. Warner Bros was looking to give Moneyball a run for No. 1 this weekend, but didn’t anticipate the continued strength of Lion King 3D. The strategy for Dolphin Tale was to reach primarily parents and kids with this real-life story and fine ensemble cast. The studio devised a very long trailer campaign in order to get maximum exposure beginning in April and playing through the summer on everything from Rio to Cars 2. The TV strategy was robust, covering everything from kids cable in late summer before school started, through key season premieres such as Dancing With The Stars and Biggest Loser, to a wide array of sponsorships with Discovery, Teen Nick, Lifetime, Nation Geographic, Disney XD, MTV, and more. Warner Bros crafted an aggressive word-of-mouth screening program that involved 3 full rounds in the top 60 markets. Military and home schoolers were targeted as well as youth groups and other family-oriented orgs. The director and cast completed a 7-market PA tour that included a junket to accommodate Winter, the real-life star of the film who had her own live Winter-cam. Online, there was a first-time integration with the Spongebob Squarepants Facebook page given the sea theme.

    I am happy Brad has three movies offered for him working next, but I don’t think he will take them. He must be so exhausted, he has worked on two movies back to back. and WWZ is such a long filming period about 6 months. Unless Angie’s movie ain’t ready to shoot yet, he may work on another one otherwise I think Angie will work next.

    Paul Rudd’s recent flick opened with a jaw-dropping $$7,011,631. Ticky’s last 2 solo flix averaged $8.2MIL, so THEORETICALLY they could have a $15.2MIL opening weekend. BUT…more than likely it’ll be be $7.6MIL – which is right their combined average. IIRC I read that the budget was $30MIL. If there’s any profit made on her duds it’s usually just enough to cover 1 days wages for someone to go around and restock toilet paper in all the Uni studio bathrooms…

    I just took a quick peak at the release schedule for Feb 24 to see what Wanderbust was up against – ho’s gonna get creamed. There’s a Tyler Perry movie opening that weekend. It’s a drama not a Madea movie, but his movies usually do well the first weekend and finish at 1 or 2. The only other flick scheduled so far is an Amanda Seyfried flick. If Ticky loses to Seyfrien she’ll probably be distraught and Squiggy will have to give her a ciggie and snort to talk her down off the balcony railing of her new NYC apt…

    What ? Ticky’s wanderbust is push to Feb. ? So We’ll be seeing her hawking her film in the Oscar with eddie munster. especially with Brad Pitt getting great Oscar buzz this year. I’m sure Brad will not be absent this year, he’ll be probably get nominated in Moneyball or TOL.
    Don’t think Huvaniston would miss this great opportunity for continuing Ticky’s Bermuda’s triangle saga.

    @lol:
    .
    Thank you. Truly the tale of the tape. First off, to me, and the rest of the world, Sarandon while very pretty, is not necessarily Sophia Loren or Liz Taylor or Jolie beautiful. Her curly red hair and big Betty Davis eyes, make for a uniquely attractive and pretty woman however. It shows you the sheer ordinariness and homelieness of Aniston, that a fairly pretty Senior citizen (Sarandon is 64) can be so obviously MORE pretty, and sexy standing next to chin Maniston. This really says it all. I so love it, when Maniston puts the fug on display, pulls her hair back and stands next to a fairly attractive woman. She rarely does it because it shows you her sad facial shortcomings in a major way, and let’s you see just how much of a fraud and PR flack image-maker construction she is. Paltrow stood next to her and looked like grace Kelly standing next to tootsie. I’m sure Maniston was thinking, ‘oh yaaay, I’ll stand next to an old Oscar winner and it will give me a kind of her passing the baton to a younger Jen-eration cache.’ bwahahahaha. MISTAKE. Little does she know that picture above makes most people wonder at the mediocrity and low standards of whoever let her in the industry. Not that you can’t be plain and unattractive and make it in Hollywood ( see Joan rivers, babs streisand, Sarah Jessica, etc) but these women are talented comedic actors and got their start on/in vehicles that were about them not fitting in and being the pretty one. Maniston to me, is actually more unattractive than them, yet has been trying to be small screen Marilyn Monroe/Bridget Bardot for years, with the stripping and flashing her t*ts and asss, all of this behavior is at best delusional and at worst, downright infuriating and fraudulent. I always go back to maniston acting insulted in that older interview when the reporter guy says she reminds him of Streisand ( see YouTube). She was horrid. Thats who she is however, a thoughtless, tactless, deluded homely woman intent on hiring whoever she needs to, to make it seem like she doesn’t have the fug face that she has. Bwahaaaa.

    Isnt it funny that all Jennifer fans seems to be not clever like their idol?

    The amount mentioned in the article was for Friday only.. We still have to wait for Saturday & Sunday figures to come in before classifying if a the movie is a success or not..

    I am sure that it will break the 20 million target by the end of weekend and all of the haters/losers/people who are so shallow that they pray that a movie flops and don’t pray for peace on earth – their comments will be silenced.

    I can honestly say that although America has fallen for Jennifer’s act we other people around the world likes Brad Pitt and his movies. This movie will earn more than 350 millions overseas.

    Fmr. Arlington Resident Lands Big Role in ‘Moneyball’

    A photographer friend in L.A., who was building her photo portfolio, talked a reluctant, recently-graduated Thompson into doing a bit of modeling for her. Somehow, years later, one of those shots landed on the desk of a casting director at Sony Pictures, who called Reed and asked him to audition for a part in a movie starring Brad Pitt. After all, Reed — who moved to Arlington from Texas in middle school — is a dead ringer for a younger version of Brad Pitt, even though he insists he doesn’t personally see the resemblance.

    Thompson, a former student athlete at Gonzaga College High School in D.C., eventually made it though all the script readings, screen tests and baseball tryouts, and was cast in the movie. With no formal acting training, Reed embarked on an effort to learn the craft as quickly as he could.

    “Since then I’ve been in class every week,” he said in a phone interview from Los Angeles last night. “I told myself, if I’m going to do this I might as well do it 110 percent and give it my all. It’s not as easy as you think it is… the people that you watch on television and the movies, they make it look really easy because they’re good at what they do.”


    Luckily, Thompson had some help on set — advice from the film’s director, tips from fellow supporting actors and, of course, being able to watch Brad Pitt up close.

    “I was able to watch a lot of the scenes anytime I wanted to go to the set,” Thompson said. “I was able to watch him and kind of say, okay, maybe I can try to mimic some of the stuff that he does in his scenes, whether it’s a face or a movement or anything like that.”

    It helped, too, that one of the most famous people on the planet happened to be friendly and approachable.

    “Brad is the nicest guy, super down to earth,” Thompson said. “He’s like one of your good friends. He’s not pretentious… he’s not a diva.”

    “It’s surreal,” Thompson continued. “Someone who’s like that that’s in every magazine… to have him know who you are and to be on a first name basis, that’s amazing.”

    Moneyball Worth More Than the Price of Admission

    When I left the theater I had a strong impression that I had just watched one of the great baseball films of all time. I can’t recall a film that so clearly presents the dynamics of what goes on behind the scenes in the formation of a championship team. The story itself provides an inside perspective on a significant moment in time, because the decisions made by that one team have had ramifications throughout the major leagues.

    Pitt again shows his range as an actor.

    Pitt’s portrayal of an inwardly anguished man striving with issues of meaning in life are spot on and noteworthy.

    -
    It’s a fine film about a very fine story, rich with nuanced performances throughout. For anyone who has had a remote interest in baseball at some point in their lives, it comes with my highest recommendation.

    Moneyball stands on its own with a strong supporting cast of personalities, including Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman as the team manager at odds with the Ivy League math theory.

    Aaron Sorkin helped write the script, which is not really about baseball, but about human nature.

    Pitt has never been better, and he and Hill should be strong Oscar contenders.

    There are some memorable one-liners, and you don’t have to be a fan of baseball to care about the characters in this film.

    The flick-o-meter gives Moneyball five out of five
