I leave you all today with three little tasty news nuggets about The Dark Knight Rises, Captain America: The First Avenger, and the Spider-man reboot. Two of them aren’t very enlightening and the third is more than likely complete bullshit. Enjoy!
A source says Tom Hardy isn’t playing villain Hugo Strange in The Dark Knight Rises.
Somebody who supposedly works for an unknown film website received a “mysterious e-mail that contained a detailed plot synopsis of Marc Webb’s Spider-man reboot.
In a report from ShowbizSpy, sources say Harrison Ford went to George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and lobbied hard for his iconic character to finally meet his demise in the currently in development Indiana Jones 5.
“George especially is resisting the notion but Steven is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final Star Wars but George put an end to it. This time he doesn’t have all the say though.”
This is funny news, considering Indiana Jones is already dead to a lot of people after Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Most moviegoers with slightly average intelligence (i.e, those who avoided Yogi Bear this weekend) know Sam Worthington is a terrible actor, and that the Clash of the Titans remake he was in sucked. Now Worthington himself has admitted these truths in a Moviefone interview:
For months, I’ve had to listen to friends and co-workers prattling on endlessly about how Tron Legacy was going to completely bomb at the box-office. Well, thankfully, they were wrong, as Legacy destroyed the competition and took in an estimated $43.6million this weekend. Not mega-blockbuster numbers, but it did very well in an overall weak Holiday release period. It also took in over two and a half times the number of tickets the original Tron did in its opening weekend. Here’s your top five-grossing movies for the weekend of December 17-19:
1.) Tron Legacy – $43.6 million
2.) Yogi Bear – $16.7 million
3.) The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader – $12.4 million
4.) The Fighter – $12.2 million
5.) The Tourist – $8.7 million
