Movie News Today

As you probably know by now, Peter Falk passed away over the weekend. A suave and cool actor for many years, for me, like many others, Falk will always be remembered for his role in "Princess Bride." A legend. Rest in peace, Peter.

In "Weekend Casting Decisions That Should be Noted but Aren't Worth a Full Note" news, Ben Barnes will play Jeff Bridges' apprentice in the fantasy pic "The Seventh Son", Chris Meloni will play an undefined role in "Man of Steel", and Jon Goodman has been added to Ben Affleck's "Argo."

Vin Diesel has announced that the sixth "Fast and Furious" film will open Memorial Day weekend, 2013. So if you're keeping track at home, "Fast and Furious" warrants it's own note, Jon Goodman doesn't. That's how my world works.

1. "Cars 2" - $68 million
2. "Bad Teacher" - $31
3. "Green Lanter" - $18.35 ($89.31 million total)
