EARLY BOX OFFICE REPORT: ‘SKYLINE’ BOMBS
Uh-oh, bad news for fans of the Sci-Fi “Alien Invasion” genre this weekend, as ‘Skyline’ finishes a distant third to Dreamworks’ CGI-Animated ‘Megamind’ and Tony Scott’s latest train-fetish film, ‘Unstoppable’.
I haven’t seen ‘Skyline’ yet, but I thought the trailers all looked very cool, especially the scenes of thousands of bodies being vacuumed up into huge alien spaceships. However, the reviews have been overwhelmingly negative, (currently garnering only a 10% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes), and it looks like the Strause brothers have another dud on their hands after the dismal Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem. I may have a late review of this film posted on Monday, look out for it.
