********************************************

The doldrums of Winter box office... I have a feeling next weekend will be worse.

CBS Films can't get a hit together, can they? I sense a shakeup soon.

In good news, though, True Grit has passed Little Fockers. There is some hope for humanity.

The Mechanic will be #5 at the end of the weekend should those numbers hold up -- the movie was an acquisition for CBS Films and not filmed by them, they paid $5m for the film (or so I've read a few times, and it is inline with other Millennium Films releases) itself and look to have a $10m opening weekend. Not horrible, though I'm sure they spent a small fortune on advertising.

In other news, Millennium Films is co-producing Men in Black III?

It's crazy that if you would've asked me before December, I don't think I would've said that Black Swan and The King's Speech would gross over $100 million domestically or that True Grit would be able to pass Little Fockers in domestic gross.

Yup. There's 4 oscar contenders in the top 10 and all are having healthy runs. Very surprised Black Swan (an arthouse ballerina horror flick) cracked $90m, and that True Grit (a dialog driven western) will crack $150m. Didn't see that coming. I guess some people really are getting tired of having the same shit force fed to them week after week. The King's Speech has had the most impressive run of the bunch -- damn thing is on fire right now and will be up about 60% from last weekend (it spread to about a thousand additional theaters this weekend).

More impressive, True Grit more than doubled the gross of the Coen Bros previous domestic highest grossing movie (No Country...)

Another for True Grit passing Little Fockers. I'm really surprised at how well The King's Speech has done.

yeah they may not be topping the box office but a lot of these best picture nominees are subtly going very well.

I can't believe I got talked into seeing The Rite last night. I hadn't even heard of it!

It'll be cool to see Black Swan hit $100 million in a few weeks, if not, at least perhaps by the time they get around to awarding those gold statues.
