Colin Firth will play a WWII POW in "Railway Man." Could be a nice chance for him to finally break out. Wait...
Oscar winning actor Cliff Robertson, who played Uncle Ben in the "Spiderman" franchise, died yesterday at age 88. Rest in peace, Cliff.
Ron Howard will direct "364" about a man who has super powers for one day each year. Gotta say, that sounds awesome.
Mel Gibson would like to write and direct a film about Jewish hero Judah Maccabee. A.) This will never happen, particularly since the Anti-Defamation League has already lodged a complaint. B.) Come on, Mel. I get the desire to publicly make up with the Jewish community but how did you think they were going to react to you trying to make a film about one of their heroes? No chance, dude.
Weekend Box Office Results
Well, America, I've never been prouder of you. You'll notice in the list below that our top 10 DOES NOT include one "Bucky Larson" aka "The Odds on Winner for Worst Picture at the Razzies." That heap of rubbish made only $1.45 million on opening weekend and will likely be out of theaters entirely within another week. Thank you all for not supporting this film and for saving me the trouble of tracking you all down for the punching you would have deserved.
