Here is our weekend preview of what is opening in theaters and what you might want to catch on TV. Have a great weekend everyone, check back Sunday night for a Box Office Report and as always, we return Monday with a brand new City Strip in 3D! (not really). And Here We…Go!
The film follows a young woman in the 1950s about to be lobotomized as she attempts to escape an asylum with her inmate friends. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with hot girls fighting evil forces, I’ll give it a pass because I have hope that director Zack Snyder doesn’t take this movie’s inevitable tank personally and spite us with a the upcoming Superman reboot he’s working on. He might go mental and cast Dean Cain! Everyone go see this movie. Twice.
I saw the first Diary, it was a pleasure much like How to Eat Fried Worms, both based on the kids books of the same name. You can’t get angry at kids being kids. Here is some interesting facts, the first Diary had a budget of $15M, and it made $76M. Our sequel this weekend was made for $21M (I bet it’s because there is another kid on the poster) and will be sure to make it’s money back if not this weekend, then before next Friday. Then you have DVD sales and bam: In an interview star Devon Bostick said that “Diary of A Wimpy Kid 3″ could be in the works and is “90% sure it will happen” depending on the success of Rodrick Rules.
