Last week belonged to the Ashton Kutcher/Natalie Portman film No Strings Attached, which romanced moviegoers to the tune of $19.7 million last week. Not far behind was The Green Hornet ($17 million) and The Dilemma ($9 million), followed by awards favorites The King’s Speech ($7.8 million) and True Grit ($7.3 million). This week we say goodbye to what felt like a month full of mediocre comedies and hello to some action and a few scares. Let’s take a look …
Anthony Hopkins, Jason Statham
The Rite was parochial at best, I enjoyed the Mechanic remake better, although they changed the ending to suite Sequels of course...
The Kind's Speech will win due to the recent Oscar Noms
What about Biutiful? It just came out today. I enjoyed it.
yes but that movie is only playing in some theaters. plus not many people have heard of it (unfortunately)
i will be going to see Rite on Tuesday! I saw preview for Rite for about 2 months now and Mechanic I only saw one preview and that was last week.
I think both will probably do well but I'm going with The Rite. Ultimately it depends on whether or not action films are more popular than horror films. I'm always down for a good horror movie personally.
Sorry, but the Mechanic is rated R which gives the Rite the winning edge. NSA I think will drop to two or three.
I'm going with The Mechanic. I know Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins(hurp durp) is a phenomenal actor, but Statham is always good with action, and I love Ben Foster in the movies I'm seen him in. Bang Bang Your Dead, Alpha Dog, 3:10 to Yuma, Pandorum...come on! Did I mention Ben Foster is awesome?
never heard of 'em.
didnt see pandorum yet, but yeah ben foster is pretty awesome...he might be the only thing worthwhile in alpha dog.
