Thankfully in the meantime, the next two years should be completely free of any bad movies at all!

So Fox spends some time and money on a films sequel. Big deal, not like we have to see it. Then again, it could have been money that could have gone to Arrested Development. :cry:

...which is really remarkable considering how few screens it's on. I would've shelled out seven bucks to see it this weekend, but Juno still isn't playing in my neck of the woods. (Oddly enough, The Kite Runner is making the rounds at one of the local theaters. Not that that's a bad thing, but it does seem a bit strange that the 'mainstream' limited release would be a no-show while something with more of an arthouse appeal is playing.)

So did I. My gripe is that the CGI chipmunks look *nothing* like the cartoon. Kind of like Garfield and Underdog. Regardless, this film is on it's way to outgrossing "Ratatouille". And that just pisses me off.

Yay! "Compass" continues to do BIG business overseas:

'Legend' finishes strong overseas
Will Smith film, 'Compass' top foreign box office
By DAVE MCNARYWill Smith's "I Am Legend" closed out the year with a bang, leading a robust foreign box office during the final 2007 weekend with $46.1 million in 25 markets.
"Legend" dominated the Brit box office following its Boxing Day launch with $21.8 million at 438 playdates, taking in almost half of the biz for the top five film in an opening that was on par with "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." Its second French frame declined merely 6% to $7.1 million while its Spanish soph sesh slid 39% to $3 million.

"Legend" also launched in first in Denmark, Israel, Norway, Portugal and South Africa on its way to hitting $117 million in foreign box office cume and $311 million worldwide, combined with the domestic total. With openings still coming in Australia, Germany, Italy and Mexico in coming weeks, the sci-fier should continue to lead the way offshore for several more frames.

But there were plenty of other foreign box office riches to go around as "Golden Compass" remained a stellar performer outside the United States with $34 million at 7,600. The four-week foreign cume has hit $187 million -- over triple its disappointing domestic total of $59 million in a performance underlines international traction for fantasy fare.

"Compass" has attracted $5 million in Australia since its Boxing Day launch on Wednesday. Its four-week Brit cume has hit $41 million, followed by $21 million in South Korea, $18 million in France and $17 million in Germany.

Another quintet of pics -- "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," "Enchanted," "Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem," "Alvin and the Chipmunks, "Bee Movie" -- combined for another $85 million during the frame. So with the top seven entries totaling $165 million, international box office is ending the year on a decidedly upbeat note.

The six Hollywood majors have seen overall foreign biz jump 9% over 2006 to total $9.4 billion -- led by Warner Bros. at $2.15 billion, followed by Disney at $1.67 billion, Fox at $1.64 billion, Par at $1.6 billion, Sony at $1.27 billion and U at $1.03 billion.

Disney's "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" found significant coin with $21 million at 3,000 in 25 markets for a two-week cume of $60 million. The solid start shows the sequel's on track to top the final $174 million offshore cume for the original "National Treasure."

"Book of Secrets" saw solid launches in Russia with $2.8 million and in Mexico with $2.2 million and excellent second-frame holds elsewhere -- Spain, down 5% to $2.4 million; Italy, up 17% to $2.2 million; Japan, off 29% to $1.9 million; and South Korea, down 23% to $1.8 million.

Disney also conjured up respectable "Enchanted" figures with $20.6 million at 5,304 in 43 markets, giving the family-aimed fantasy a foreign total of $110.7 million -- matching the domestic number. Its fourth Brit frame held nicely, off only 1% to $4.5 million, while its Australian launch looked lively with $3.3 million.

"Enchanted," which has outperfomed studio expectations, also boosted its second frame by 30% in Germany to $2.9 million and its fourth French frame by 5% to $2 million.

Fox saw impressive returns in a counter-programming foray for "Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem" with $15. 9 million at 1,784 in 20 markets -- a notable $8,910 per location average. Sequel scared up its top takes in Germany with $4.8 million, Australia with $2.8 million, Japan with $2.4 million and Malaysia with $1.2 million in the largest Fox launch ever in that market.

Fox's "Alvin" remained solid rather than spectacular with $13.6 million at 3,608 to lift the kidpic's foreign cume to nearly $38 million. Most of the takings came from soph sesh holdovers, led by the U.K. with $2.7 million and France and Germany with $1.9 million each.

Par's "Bee Movie" buzzed up $13.5 million at 4,904 in 59 markets for a $103 million foreign cume. Toon showed stellar holds with a 12% hike in its third U.K. frame to $2.1 million and a 47% jump in its Italian soph sesh to $1.6 million.

U's "American Gangster" gunned down $6.6 million at 1,935 in 25 territories, raising the foreign cume to $62.6 million in the middle of its run. Half of its take came from the Spanish launch, which topped the second frame of "I Am Legend" with $3.3 million at 439.

Along with "Gangster," several other award season contenders started expanding their runs such as U's "Atonement" with an Aussie launch of $2.6 million at 131 to lift the foreign cume to $36 million from 11 markets. Period drama goes into Brazil, France, Spain and Sweden in two weeks.

Par's "No Country for Old Men" made its first foreign foray with a socko Oz opening of $1 million at only 52. Its "Kite Runner" launched in Blighty with $900,000 at 132, similar to "Motorcycle Diaries."

Fox's co-production of local romancer "Irony of Fate 2" remained a serious player in Russia with $5.2 million at 905 for a two-week cume of $17.5 million. And Sony saw moderate returns its day and date Mexican launch of "The Water Horse" with $1.45 million since Christmas.

I'm loving how the chipmunks have finally pass Will Smith, though it took them 3 weekends to do it.

I wonder if that takes into account the 14 screen sneak preview on Saturday.

Juno is, finally, entering my little corner of the world. On Friday. The 4th.

So after a long, and seemingly infinite wait, I will be one of the few people who have yet to see it.

To echo sentiments from the Lost thread... "Can't wait!"

I've said it before, and I've said it again. As long as they keep churning out kids movies (good or not) they keep the little bastards out of movies I go see.

Anytime, my kids loved it and have seen it twice for you now.

Never fails in these box office thread that someone is always pissed when a movie they feel is poor makes money. Get over it...

Few people?

It's only made $25 mil. I'd say 98.9% of Americans haven't seen it.
