Never Count Out Basterds—or Sandra Bullock

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

Ryan Reynolds cast as “Green Lantern”

LOS ANGELES -july 11 – After an intense months-long search, Warner Bros. has chosen Ryan Reynolds to play the title character in “Green Lantern,” the studio’s live-action movie based on the DC Comics hero.

Reynolds and his representatives entered negotiations for the part Friday, after the studio held two rounds of screen tests for the actor, Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto. Justin Timberlake also did a screen test.

The film is being directed by Martin Campbell and produced by Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti.

One reason for the lengthy search process was that De Line, Campbell and the studio each had a different favorite among the finalists, making it difficult to come to a consensus.

If the deal is completed, it would make Reynolds the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC. He recently starred in a comic-book movie, 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” in which he played Deadpool, also known as the Merc with a Mouth. The character is being developed for a spin-off in which Reynolds will star. He also played Marvel’s vampire hunter Hannibal King in “Blade: Trinity.”

“Lantern” is Reynolds second stab at a DC Comics hero. A few years ago, he was attached to play the comic company’s speedster “The Flash.”

Jennifer Aniston ‘connected’ to Cooper

Jennifer Aniston “feels a connection” with Bradley Cooper.

The actress – who was spotted enjoying an intimate dinner with her ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ co-star in New York last week – is delighted with the way her new romance is heading.

A source told America’s Star magazine: “Jennifer is really excited. She feels a connection to Bradley.” The pair enjoyed a three-hour date at Manhattan’s exclusive Italian restaurant Il Cantinori, where they shared wine and ate by candlelight.

A witness explained: “They acted like two kids falling in love. I went over to say hi to them, and I noticed they were holding hands under the table because they let go to shake my hand.” Bradley, 34, is also said to have told friends he has “feelings” for the 40-year-old actress.

Last month, Jennifer and Bradley were seen flirting at a party for her movie ‘Management’, but Bradley was quick to shoot down rumours they were an item. He said: “I am single. I have only met her three times in my life but I’m very flattered.”
