Snow White and the Huntsman was surprisingly ok. Especially for a movie that starred Kristen Stewart. Though I don’t think a sequel is necessary. Almost $400mil worldwide gross thinks differently I suppose.
After the cut, see the first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
We here at Gabbing Geek LOVE box office reports. Ok….JUST me and Ryan. Everyone else seems to hate them. We’ve talked a lot about it the last few weeks, so let’s look at the winners and losers of this year’s box office as we wait for the Martian to officially kick off the Fall movie season.
In a January article by Gabbing Geek’s own Ryan Garcia, he predicted the 2015 Top Ten Grossing films (domestic). Rule of thumb says that to crack the top ten, a film will need to surpass $200M+. Some of Ryan’s picks were right. Some were wrong. Where will we wind up and what could spoil Ryan’s top ten list?
We love Paul Fieg – and Paul Fieg loves Twitter. Yesterday morning he tweeted the costumes you see above with the hashtag #whatyougonnawear. Additionally he tweeted out the photon packs again with the hashtag #whatyougonnashoot. Next we’re hoping for a leaked picture of any ghost so we can totally use #WhoYouGonnaCall. See tweets after the break.
May 1st is just around the corner (Ryan: “ohmygodohmygodohmygod”) and that means the promotional tour for a little movie called Avengers: Age of Ultron has begun. After the break, check out the cast on Jimmy Kimmel last night compete in a game of Avengers Family Feud!
Yikes! I was gabbing with Ryan this week about box office projections (yes…this is what we talk about in real life) and we both scoffed at the lofty box office projections of American Sniper. I thought maybe….maybe, the film could hit the upside of matching Sole Survivor’s $120M. I honestly thought it would finish its run with $80-90M unless it won Best Picture. Ryan even took the Under on that call. Well, I was right about the $90M number….if I predicted that for OPENING WEEKEND!
