Fading Gigolo

John Turturro's "Fading Gigolo", co-starring Woody Allen, became the second highest limited release opener of the year this past weekend, pulling in $200,000 from five locations.  My guess is that Mia Farrow did NOT purchase a ticket.  Many others, however, did.

This weekend, "Frozen" became the highest grossing animated title of all time internationally, crossing the $730M mark and the film is far from done.  It still placed 8th at the overseas box office this weekend.  The phrase "Let It Go" doesn't seem to be in anyone's vocabulary.

In the latest Bryan Singer saga, the "X-Men" director's attorney now claims that his client wasn't even in Hawaii during the time the alleged allegations took place.  A young man, who was 17 years old at the time, claims Singer and others sexually abused him several years ago.

Summit President of Marketing, Nancy Kirkpatrick, was let go late last week.  Lionsgate's Chief Marketing Officer Tim Palen will assume those duties for both companies.

Paramount and China Film Company announced they will co-produce a new 3D fantasy action movie based on Marco Polo.  Let's hope they mean the 13th century Italian merchant traveler and not the unbearably annoying children's pool game.
