NO STOPPING IT NOW: BATMAN VS SUPERMAN BOX OFFICE DOLLARS

The verdicts are coming in.. those of the people I now who saw BATMAN VS SUPERMAN are highly upset.. one person’s reaction was shock when she learned that the film cost almost a billion bucks *($800 mil to be exact)* to create.. a monstrosity of a borefest..

BUT BUT BUT.. stop the presses, here’s the latest bat news: Easter weekend take moneywise for the flick is going to be wide and big. $171 predicted for BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, despite the bad reviews. Despite the bad reactions. Despite Ben Affleck. The $171 mil will be minus Affleck’s children, as well..

The movie’s release is pre-summer. The spring Cherry Blossoms are not even done blooming. The genius of Warner Bros was to release a film like this – comic book, bombs, fights, explosions, Wonder Woman in a skimpy outfit – when kids were home from school. During a three day weekend when teens had nothing to do but go to the movies.. The marketing was also amazing with product placement everywhere, including in the cereal aisle for my five year old to have the choice of BATMAN or SUPERMAN flavor..

And finally, despite the misgivings and criticism, Affleck is scoring some points for his role as Wayne. Maybe not from me. But from enough people.

All that said, the movie is getting 30% at Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is also most likely going to drop next week after this initial trial run in over 4000 theaters as the Easter Bunny hops along..

Oh…..second place this weekend? Take a guess. The mighty ZOOTOPIA…

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round..
