Never Count Out Basterds—or Sandra Bullock

[media id=189 width=500 height=400]

Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt enjoyed what most movie stars don’t: A happy Labor Day.

During Hollywood’s weakest long weekend of the year, Bullock managed a respectable, $14 million Friday-Monday debut for the critically trashed All About Steve, while Pitt’s Inglourious Basterds marched toward $100 million with a $15 million four-day take.

The Final Destination, last weekend’s 3-D-boosted champ, was this weekend’s champ, too, with $15.4 million, Exhibitor Relations reported.

More results, plus how Tron outplayed Gamer:

• All About Steve will finish third, not second as projected Sunday, per Exhibitor Relations. The romantic comedy flip-flopped with Inglourious Basterds, which moved up a spot.

• Third place or second place, All About Steve didn’t bomb, despite a Tomatometer reading on Rotten Tomatoes of 5 percent. Yes, 5 percent. Just so you know, if you turn on a camera and film a wall and/or make The Dukes of Hazzard, you can rate a Tomatometer reading higher than 5 percent.

• Arguably even stranger but true, All About Steve made more money at each of its theaters than any movie in the Top 10.

• Maybe goodwill did it? All About Steve not only starred Bullock, hot off The Proposal, but Bradley Cooper, hot off The Hangover.

• To be sure, All About Steve isn’t exactly a career highlight for Bullock. It’s her lowest-grossing debut for a wide-release movie since 2002’s Murder By Numbers.

• Only one Quentin Tarantino movie has ever blown past $100 million. At $95.2 million after three weekends, Inglourious Basterds looks to soon join Pulp Fiction.

• From Friday-Sunday, Gerard Butler’s Gamer scored $9 million, Box Office Mojo said, which, given an average ticket price of $7.18, works out to about 1.2 million tickets sold. In 1982, Tron scored a $4.7 million Friday-Sunday debut, which, given a then-average ticket price of $2.94, works out to about 1.6 million ticket sold. Game over.

• Even if you add in Monday’s grosses, which are expected to bring Gamer up to $11.2 million, Tron still outsold its video-game descendant.

• Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will make $1 million through today, Paramount Pictures estimated, and will join Hollywood’s exclusive $400 million or more club. Once Revenge of the Fallen’s membership is confirmed, there will be only nine members.

• District 9, the little sci-fi movie that could, broke $100 million, with a $9 million Friday-Monday.

• Of the weekend’s new movies, Mike Judge’s Extract was, as Exhibitor Relations’ Jeff Bock put it, “the best-reviewed film that did the worst.” It’s expected to gross $5.5 million Friday-Monday.

• On the upside of being down, Extract is now projected to finish ninth, not 10th.

• The long and the short of it: G-Force fell out of the Top 10 after six weekends and a $114.6 million run, through Sunday; Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock fell out of the Top 10 after one weekend, and a $6 million run, also through Sunday.

• The summer box office estimates held. This now-concluded beach season will go down as the highest-grossing—and one of the weirdest. While revenue was up (thanks, 3D!), attendance was down. While August was surprisingly hot, thanks to G.I. Joe and District 9, Bock said, June and July were surprisingly cool.

• Perhaps nothing symbolized the summer’s split personality more than Terminator Salvation. The movie grossed $371 million worldwide; its producers filed for bankruptcy.

Here’s a look at the holiday weekend’s top-grossing films based on Friday-Monday estimates as compiled by Exhitor Relations:

1. The Final Destination, $15.4 million
2. Inglourious Basterds, $15 million
3. All About Steve, $14 million
4. Gamer, $11.2 million
5. District 9, $8 million
6. Halloween 2, $7.01 million
7. Julie & Julia, $7 million
8. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, $6.7 million
9. Extract, $5.5 million
10. The Time Traveler’s Wife, $5.46 million

Forget Kill Bill, how does Kill Adolf strike you? That’s roughly where Quentin Tarantino‘s head is at as he cranks up his latest campy remake an international genre flick. Brad Pitt stars as a bad-ass bumpkin Nazi basher who sneaks behind enemy lines in France with his band of Jewish assassins, intent on demoralizing the Third Reich…or decapitating it, whichever comes first.

What do you think? Does this new trailer make the flick look like splatter-tastic fun, or just a bloody mess?

Jennifer Lopez gives birth to twins

[media id=131 width=500 height=400]

Jennifer Lynn Lopez (born July 24, 1969), often nicknamed J.Lo, is an American actress, singer, record producer, dancer, fashion designer and television producer. She is the richest person of Latin American descent in Hollywood according to Forbes, and the most influential Hispanic entertainer in the U.S. according to People en Españols list of “100 Most Influential Hispanics”.

Starting in 1999, Lopez released seven albums, including two number one albums on the Billboard 200 charts and four Billboard Hot 100 number one singles. She won the 2003 American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist and the 2007 American Music Award for Favorite Latin Artist. She has appeared in numerous films, and has won ALMA Awards for outstanding actress for her work in Selena, Out of Sight, and Angel Eyes. She parlayed her media fame into a fashion line and various perfumes with her celebrity endorsement.

Early life

Jennifer Lopez was born and grew up in the South Bronx, New York to Puerto Rican parents Guadalupe Rodríguez, a kindergarten teacher, and David Lopez, a computer specialist. She has two siblings, Lynda and Leslie. Lopez spent her entire academic career in Catholic schools, finishing at the all-girls Preston High School, in the Bronx. She financed singing and dancing lessons for herself from the age of 19. After attending Baruch College for one semester, Lopez divided her time between working in a legal office, dance classes, and dance performances in Manhattan night clubs. She had a bit part in the 1987 film My Little Girl. After months of auditioning for dance roles, Lopez was selected as a dancer for various rap music videos, a 1990 episode of Yo! MTV Raps, and as a backup dancer for the New Kids on the Block and their performance of their song “Games” for the American Music Awards in 1991. After being rejected twice, she gained her first regular high-profile job as a “Fly Girl” dancer on the television comedy program In Living Color in 1990. Soon after, Lopez became a backup dancer for Janet Jackson and made an appearance in her 1993 video “That’s the Way Love Goes”.

Film and television

Lopez’s first television job as an actress, on the Fox series South Central came her way because the producer of the television series was married to one of the other “Fly Girls,” and he took notice of Lopez during a special Fox aired about them. Lopez also made a guest appearance Second Chances and Hotel Malibu. She then appeared in the made-for-television film Nurses on the Line: The Crash of Flight 7. Lopez’s first serious screen role was in Gregory Nava’s 1995 drama My Family, playing the character of Young Maria in the 1920s. After starring alongside Jimmy Smits and Edward James Olmos in My Family, Lopez starred in the action film Money Train opposite Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson. In 1996, she beat out Ashley Judd and Lauren Holly for the supporting role in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1996 comedy Jack starring Robin Williams. She then starred opposite Jack Nicholson in Bob Rafelson’s well-received noir thriller Blood and Wine.

Lopez’s first big break came in 1997, when she was chosen to play the title role in Selena, a biopic of the Tejano pop singer Selena. Despite having previously worked with Nava on Mi Familia, Lopez was subjected to an intense auditioning process before landing the lead role of Selena. She earned widespread praise for her performance, including a Golden Globe Award for “Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy”. Later that year Lopez appeared in two major films. She starred in the horror film Anaconda alongside Ice Cube and Jon Voight, playing the role of Terri Flores, a director who is shooting a documentary while traveling through the Amazon River. Though, despite being a modest box office hit, the film was critically panned. Lopez then starred as the leading actress in the neo-noir film U Turn, which is based on the book Stray Dogs, starring alongside Sean Penn and Billy Bob Thornton.

In 1998, she had one of her most acclaimed roles, starring opposite George Clooney in Out of Sight, Steven Soderbergh’s adaptation the Elmore Leonard novel. Cast as a deputy federal marshal who falls for a charming criminal, Lopez won raves for her tough performance and in the process she became the highest paid Latina actress in Hollywood history. That same year, she provided the voice for Azteca on the computer-animated film Antz. Lopez then starred opposite Vince Vaughn, in the psychological thriller film The Cell. She portrayed Catherine Deane, a child psychologist who uses a virtual reality to enter into the minds of her patients to coax them from their comas. The film was released on August 18, 2000 and became a box office success opening at number one. The following year, Lopez took a hiatus from acting in films to work on her music career.

On April 10, 2007 Lopez made an appearance as a mentor on American Idol. Lopez also became the executive producer of the eight-episode reality show, DanceLife, which ran on MTV and began on January 15, 2007. Lopez helped select the show’s participants and made cameo appearances. She then served as executive producer of a miniseries broadcast on Univisión. Titled after her CD Como Ama Una Mujer, it ran in five episodes from October 30 to November 27, 2007, and starred Christian Borrero and Adriana Cruz.

Lopez signed a contract as star and executive producer of an unscripted reality series for TLC, a division of Discovery Communications Inc. The series will show the launching of her new fragrance, and will not focus on her family.

Box office standing and record sales

Lopez is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood and the highest-paid Latin actress in Hollywood history, though she’s never had a film grossing over $100 million in the U.S. She was on the The Hollywood Reporter’s list of the top ten actress salaries in 2002, 2003, and 2004. She received $15 million for her role in Monster-in-Law. Her top-grossing film domestically is Maid in Manhattan which grossed $94,011,225, and her most successful international film, Shall We Dance?, grossed $112,238,000, at the international box office. Domestically, Shall We Dance? grossed $57,890,460 and a total of $170,128,460 worldwide.

Lopez has sold over 48 million albums worldwide. Lopez made the 2007 Forbes magazine’s list of The 20 Richest Women In Entertainment, ranking ninth. Her wealth is estimated to be $110 million.
