Liam Neeson Attacks a Female Dog and Wins: Weekend Box Office (1/27 - 1/29)

Get it? Because Katherine Heigl is a bitch. Ha ha... okay, not the strongest title, but it'll do.

Lionsgate’s opener*One For The Money starring Katherine Heigl and based on the Janet Evanovich’s bestselling novel is**coming on stronger*than people thought it would*with $4M-5M for today and $12M-$14M for the weekend from 2,737 runs. Summit Entertainment’s new actioner Man On A Ledge with Sam Worthington is looking like $2M-$3M for today and $6M-$7M for the weekend from 2,998 theaters. In other words, weak. No word yet on whether those Groupon/Living Social discounted movie ticket deals are helping the Lionsgate/Summit pics but it did prevent the Marcus Theatre chain from playing One For The Money in the midwest.*Numbers will*be refined later with full analysis.

Because the movie title "Man on Ledge" sounds like an "actioner", I would think it's a title more befitting for a French film.

... and you were doing so well with the thread titles up until now.

Weak weekend considering the insanely obnoxious marketing push for The Grey.

Yeah Man on a Ledge is dead on it's feet. It's getting crushed by the critics too.

Agree you could not get away from it. Thought for sure it would open better.

Looks like Katherine Heigl can continue to beg for her Grey's Anatomy job back.

Look, not every thread title will be a winner. This weekend is dreadful as the only options are:
  1. Liam Neeson beating up wolves.
  2. Katherine Heigl being a swarmy **** for two hours.
  3. Hollywood's continuing weak attempt at trying to make Sam Worthington a star.
Word plays, puns and racial epithets only go so far as thread titles; especially when nothing of note is out in theaters.

The last week of January is always a ghost town at the multiplexes. This weekend will give bumps to The Artist, The Descendants, Hugo and The Iron Lady as their studios have significantly increased their screen counts due to Oscar nominations, but everything else is dead on arrival.

Next week doesn't fair any better on thread titles with Big Miracle, Chronicle and The Woman in Black as the week's wide openers.

However, it's back on once we get the Star Wars re-release in theaters and we can go back to making George Lucas rape jokes.

One for the Money is currently at 0% on Rotten Tomatoes with 22 reviews. I thought it looked pretty pedestrian but didn't think the reviews be THAT bad. I mean, even Jack and Jill had 3% positive reviews.

Chronicle of Miracle, "the Big Black Woman"?

Just a suggestion

I already have next week's thread title planned out based upon this bitching and moaning. I already have the joke planned out based upon the success or the failure of one of the three wide releases next year.

To incorporate One for the Money, it should be "Liam Neeson pushes off bitch, on a Ledge"

"Liam Survives the Weekend, while Heigl Fails to Catch Box Office Bounty and Man on Ledge Plummets to (Financial) Death"

It's a tough weekend.

You should see Man on a Ledge instead and let us know if he actually jumps or not
