Here is the blooper reel for Bridesmaids, looks like it’s from the upcoming Blu-ray release. Some are calling it the funniest movie of the year; I will have to ask Ryan since he saw this and Horrible Bosses (his review). I love me some bloopers and will watch this movie before I watch the video below, but here it is for you. I give too much I know.
Super 8 took the top spot this weekend with an estimated $37M to push the X-Men to second place with $25M just a day or so away from crossing the $100M mark. To me Super 8 should have done better, especially with the crazy push the studio gave it over the last week. It was also one of the best of year according to my review.
1. Super 8 – $37M
2. X-Men: First Class – $25M ($98.8M)
3. Hangover Part II – $18.5M ($216.5M)
4. Kung Fu Panda 2 – $16.6M ($126.9M)
5. Pirates 4 – $10.8M ($208M)
6. Bridesmaids – $10M ($123.9M)
7. Judy Moody – $6.2M ($6.2M)
8. Midnight in Paris – $6M ($14.2M)
9. Thor – $2.3 ($173.6M)
10. Fast Five – $1.7M ($205)
X-Men is still moving slower than the previous mutant films, but as I said last week, this film was a much harder sell and should merit a sequel when all is said and done. The Hangover Part II broke the $200 million mark on Friday and soon after became the top-grossing film of 2011. Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris expanded into 944 locations and still holds in the top 10.
Next weekend, Green Lantern…anyone heard of it?
We will have official numbers tomorrow, the biggest Memorial Weekend box office ever is pretty money. Estimates (via Deadline) are saying that The Hangover Part 2 is going to shatter the R-Rated comedy record with $137M over first five days; Kung Fu Panda 2 $68M; Pirates 4 goes past $500M Global. The real winner this weekend is Woody Allen if you ask me, Midnight in Paris made it into the top ten with just 58 theaters.
Here are the estimates for the top ten films this past Memorial Day Weekend. If we need to, all official numbers will be updated tomorrow.
1. Hangover Part II – 3-day Weekend $85M, Est. 4-day $105, Est. 5-Day $137M
2. Kung Fu Panda 2 – 3-Day Weekend $47.5M, Est. 4-Day $62M, Est. 5-Day $68M
3. Pirates – 3-Day Weekend $42M, Est. 4-Day $53M, Est Total $166.5M
4. Bridesmaids – Est 3-Day $16.2M, Est. 4-Day $21.5M, Est Total $90M
5. Thor – Est 3-Day Weekend $8.5M, Est 4-Day $11M, Est Total $161.3M
6. Fast Five – Est 3-Day $5.8M, Est 4-Day $9M, Est Cume $198.4M
7. Midnight in Paris – Est 3-Day Weekend $1.7M, Est 4-Day $2.6M, Est Cume $3.5M
Not a lot going on this past weekend, the numbers are in and it’s Thor once again taking #1 with $34M for a two week total of $115M, not too shabby. Bridesmaids was expected to do well, maybe not this good taking in $22.4M, it was also expected to be bunch of girls burping and farting like the boys do, it’s not, check this one out.
The other new wide release, Priest, came in fourth place with a soft $14.5M up against a $60M budget – expect this one to tap out next weekend. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides hits next week and is sure to make a bundle, as much as previous entries? Who knows? It Should be interesting.

Back in February we gave you a pretty good trailer for Bridesmaids, the new comedy from people involved with Knocked Up and Superbad. We have another, naughtier trailer for your viewing pleasure down below.
Synopsis: Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. Annie’s life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she’ll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love.
Here’s the poster and trailer for the new comedy directed by Paul Feig (creator of Freaks and Geeks) and produced by Judd Apatow (Knocked up, Superbad) – the film stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. It’s been awhile since we have had a full female cast comedy that actually looks funny. We will see if it works out when Bridesmaids opens May 13. And yes I know you’re wondering if that’s Chris O’Dowd from The IT Crowd at the 1:59 mark, it is, rest easy.
