Well done Angie. Can’t wait to see this film I think that it is going to be amazing especially in regards to the talent involved.

BTW Jennifer Aniston’s great contribution to the news agenda today. Another commercial for dumbwater. And people still wonder why Brad left her and then subsequently chased after Angie.

What did Brad say about Angie, “she’s a force to be reckoned with”. Fans we are so proud of our girl Angie, she is so organized and talented. I hear a scream coming from the trolls right now. Oh boy, this thread will be humming tonight!! Someone will have to talk down the trolls from jumping off the ledge tonight, whaa, whaa, whaa, trolls crying for their mommy, lol!

proud of ya angie, looking forward to see this xx


So predictable. Couldn’t you come up with anything more original.

Troll it must hurt seeing somebody who you hate so much souring high while you beloved Jen is stuck in mediocrity hell.

Supporting roles in crappy films, flogging bottled water and second rate cosmetics. What a loser, just like the people who call themselves her fans.

LOL. Oops

souring = soaring

I’m really proud of Angie of how she is handling her upcoming directorial film. Great things have come in place for Angie, Brad, the family and everyone involved in the film, I can’t wait to the film. This film has award winning all over it, trust me:)

Go Angie:)

wow great news – Coen brothers, Deakins and Jolie and now this very talented man will play the lead. If this movie doesnt wipe out the Oscars 2015 I will eat a hat.

Another good news: WWZ earned $2,524,267 on Tuesday and had a rise of 12.1% from the day before. The total domestic so far is $163,765,088 after 19 days. Well done WWZ team…

OOH MY GOD!!!, I loove this!!.Jack is a great actor!!!!. He deserves it!!.

Excellent choice.

Way to go Angelina, well done, it’s all coming together <3. This actor Jack is lucky.

2013 belongs to Brad, WWZ, The Counselor, TYAS, and Kick Ass2. 2014 belongs to Angelina, Maleficent and Unbroken.

I’m not familiar with Jack O’Connell but I’d say he hit the jackpot. Good for him…his past work must be impressive. I hope he kicks butt as Zamperini.

World War Z
Domestic: $163,765,088 44.1%
+ Foreign: $207,400,000 55.9%
= Worldwide: $371,165,088
