DAWN OF JUSTICE crash!

When the dramatically high Easter Sunday numbers were posted about BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, I had a hunch.. Those numbers were so good.. soo amazing.. and sooo ready to crash and burn the week after. The movie was talked about all week around water coolers and on school buses.. and people were all in agreement: IT sucks.

This may be one where critics and moviegoers actually find some common ground..

I am choosing not to see the film. Friends of mine who did regard it as one of the lesser qualify pieces of art they have ever consumed.. a few kids think it is cool because of explosions and special effects. But the story line.. the Affleck .. the awfulness of it all..

This weekend is crash and burn time!

Already Friday night lights were dimmed for other films, not BAT vs the super one with WONDER WOMAN somehow thrown in for good measure.

A 79% drop Friday night when compared to the previous weekend. The overall weekend will most likely finish $50 mil with a 69% falloff..

Does that mean the movie is going to flop? No .. it still has some bit to go to make up the over $800 million budget it filmed on, however. But it will make it.

One thing is for sure: ZOOTOPIA is coming in second place and still--second place after this many weeks--showcasing itself as a major hit ..

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..
