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

Observer2 @ 09/25/2011 at 1:06 am

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.

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.

@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 @ 09/25/2011 at 1:10 am

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! @ 09/25/2011 at 1:12 am

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.

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

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.

@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 @ 09/25/2011 at 1:21 am

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 @ 09/25/2011 at 1:23 am

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 @ 09/25/2011 at 1:28 am

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.”

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.

Uh…I didn’t post this comment on this thread. I don’t know who copied it from the previous thread 6 or 7 hours ago, but you could have at least asked first. Not only did you steal my post, but you posted it under my name as if you were me and I REALLY don’t appreciate that. I have enough crazy ass trolls stlalking me. I don’t need friendly stalkers, too. Sheesh.

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).”

Thought I’d get to see Money ball today but work got in the way. Loving all the acclaim it’s getting and the troll heads exploding. Delish!

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.

the JENHAGS are deflecting trying to gear up for wanderSLUT’s spectacular
B O M B…..critical and box office.

the FFreaks here defending their LOSER IDOL (even though they begrudgingly pretend they are happy with the TICKY AND STUMPY show) know MANNY DOWNGRADED WITH EACH OF HER PR boyfriends, undercover assorted booty-calls, casting-couch blow/azz jobs, and a PAID greasy-handed #1 gay publicist that undoubtedly got his own thrills in the process ; )

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.
