It's Nice Work If You Can Get It: Trey Songz In 'Texas Chainsaw 3D'

Number one at the box office but surely less than so in our hearts, Texas Chainsaw 3D's $21 million opening weekend proved a success for distributor Lionsgate and director John Luessenhop. As a horror franchise entry, Texas Chainsaw 3D is middle of the road fun, strictly for the already converted fanbase. It's both an homage fest and an opportunity for something new, and the final act takes some chances that I didn't see coming. As is often the case with these mainstream scare flicks, the cast is compromised of young, good-looking up-and-comers hoping to gain some exposure for better A-list projects in the future.

My Twitter feed was all abuzz about it, and I believe it was trending in the USA at one point, so, evidently, a lot of you watched it. I don't have the hard numbers yet, so I can't tell you how well it did in terms of viewership and ratings. But I should have them soon enough, and will post here once that happens.
