This weekend, movie audiences spoke…and they loudly declared “We are somewhat interested in the development of social media but not to the point where it’s like a phenomenon or anything but just the appropriate amount of curiosity!” Wow, what a statement! Let Me In got shut out, the creepy owls dug in their talons, and The Town continues to look like it’s maybe a $100 million movie waiting to happen…and don’t sleep on Easy A , as that $8 million gem keeps pulling audiences in even in its third week (probably because it’s awesome). Let’s take a quick deeper look, haiku style:
1.) The Social Network – $23 million (Accuracy of prediction – 95.5%)
A nice opening
for a movie with unknowns.
No offense, J.T.
2.) The Legend of the Guardians – $11 million (Accuracy of prediction – 60.5%)
Well, this is good news!
We’ve downgraded from major
to minor failure!
3.) Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps – $10 million (Accuracy of prediction – 100%)
Money never sleeps?
Like, not even a catnap?
That sucks for money.
4.) The Town – $10 million (Accuracy of prediction – 97.5%)
You can’t stop Affleck,
you can only insult him.
Keep it up Big Ben!!!
5.) Easy A – $7 million (Accuracy of prediction – 93%)
Emma Stone kicks ass.
She deserves this huge success.
I deserve a kiss!!!
Overall accuracy of prediction – 89%
This would be higher
if it wasn’t for the owls.
Damn you, dirty birds!
Okay, that’s it gang. Happy Monday. Stay alive out there.
