Box Office Report- TWILIGHT Goes Out On Top, SKYFALL Breaks Bond Record, LINCOLN Falls Short

TWILIGHT BREAKING DAWN PART 2 attracts a huge first week but not its best, while SKYFALL breaks Bond records and LINCOLN gets off to a slow start.

We’re coming off one of the busiest box office weekends of the year. It was the beginning of the end for TWILIGHT with the premier of TWILIGHT: BREAKING DOWN PART 2 (Which believe it or not had the 2nd best domestic opening and glowed overseas to the franchise’s best global opening.) In the States, BREAKING DAWN PART 2 took in $141 million, and audiences overseas brought in a massive $200 million. TWILIGHT: NEW MOON had a better domestic opening of $142 million which remains the best opening of the series. While not the best start in the series, TWILIGHT gave the 4th best opening weekend of 2012, the only better ones were THE HUNGER GAMES, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and THE AVENGERS.

The newest edition of James Bond in SKYFALL, took second with another $41 million domestically which led it to $669 million world wide. The $669 million is the best in the series by far. The $669 million from SKYFALL has led Sony Pictures to a $4 billion dollar year which is highest in Sony’s history. It’s previous best was $3.6 billion in 2009. Helping along the way for Sony Pictures were THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, MEN IN BLACK 3 and HOTEL TRANSLYVANIA.  Sony has just one more movie of 2012 which is Kathryn Bigelow’s Osama Bin Laden drama ZERO DARK THIRTY.

Coming in third was Stephen Spielberg’s LINCOLN which expanded to most of America and only took in $21 million on a $65 budget. This is lower then expected but considering TWILIGHT, and SKYFALL are still bringing in the dough, some who may have made there way to see the very different LINCOLN, may have stayed home until next week. The other new additions to select theaters this week were the oscar buzzed drama THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, which took in $458,000 in 16 theaters and the remake of the classic Russian love story ANNA KARENINA, which took in $316,000 in 13 theaters. SILVER LININGS features award winning performances from Bradly Cooper, Robert Deniro and Jennifer Lawrence. While ANNA KARENINA, stars Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, and also directed by Joe Wright (ATONEMENT).

Topping off the top 5 are Disney’s Animated video game comedy WRECK IT RALPH which took in $18 million bringing the grand total to $121 million and  Denzel Washington’s pilot drama FLIGHT with another $8 million, bringing it’s grand total to $61 million dollars. Ben Affleck’s oscar buzzed ARGO fell out of the top 5 for the first time since it’s opening six weeks ago. ARGO brought in $4 million adding to it’s $91 million take. He is $1 million shy of his best box office performance as a director, after THE TOWN took in $92 million in 2010.

Thanks to a busy holiday week, Wednesday turns into Friday with RED DAWN, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, and LIFE OF PI all hitting theaters Wednesday and HITCHCOCK is set to start in select theaters this week as well.

Priest Accidentally Forgets To Turn Off Filters Before Live Streaming Mass

Published

The internet is having a field day with the innocent mistake of biblical proportions.

With new social distancing guidelines, many churches have closed to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. And while that doesn’t justify all the wine you’ve been chugging during your self quarantine, it does have many people practicing their faith from their homes. One Italian priest was just trying to recite a little prayer for his followers when he accidentally left a filter feature on during the broadcast! In the clip the priest is digitally adorned with a space helmet, workout gear, a fedora and sunglasses and more.

Social media went nuts for the video, which has now gone viral. One comment reads “He just doubled his holy power.” Another reads “Father, Son and Holy Influencer.” One commenter couldn’t resist a good pun and said the video is having a “Mass effect.”

Enjoy your daily blessing and take a look at the funny video below!

Danny DeVito Passionately Urges New Yorkers To Stay Home…And Twitter Agrees!

For the love of Danny DeVito, stay home!

The world is in a dark place right now and I am not sure how much more bad news we can handle. That’s why when I saw Danny DeVito’s name trending on Twitter I froze. Our great nation could very well crumble if anything bad was to happen to such an icon right now. With extreme trepidation I clicked on the social media link and was relieved to see that good ol’ Danny boy is just strumming up hype because he is passionately urging New Yorkers to stay home.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, Governor Andrew Cuomo has been driving New Yorkers to stay home and has taken every precaution short of shutting the state down completely to help prevent the virus from spreading. Because New Yorkers can be hard headed, it doesn’t hurt to have some famous friends reiterate your message. Big names like Lala Anthony, Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller have all made appearances on Cuomo’s social media pleading with New Yorker’s to heed the governors warning. Only one celebrity was able to make it to Twitter’s trending page however and that was none other than Danny DeVito. DeVito’s message is simple…stay home! In the two minute video, DeVito reminds fans that it’s not just up to the elderly to isolate themselves. “Young people can get it and they can transmit it to old people and the next thing you know – I’m out of there” says the actor. We must save him!

Twitter went into a frenzy with many users agreeing that we need to stay home for Danny. One user wrote “When Danny speaks, I listen.” Another passionately wrote “If you idiots kill Danny DeVito I SWEAR TO GOD.” One promoted DeVito from the icon status I previously awarded him and said “WE GOTTA PROTECT WORLD TREASURE DANNY DeVITO.” 

Take a look at the video below and for the love of the newly minted national treasure, stay home!
