That loud sigh of relief you hear is from Fox executives relaxing after finding out that The Wolverine didn’t turn out to be another summer film box office bust, making an estimated $55 million. Though some predictions had the film opening with $70 million, no doubt Fox is happy with what they got.

This weekend once again proves that, when you come right down to it, it’s character and story that matter, not how many CGI effects you can cram into a film.

Though it dropped 44% from last weekend, black cinema's Lord and Savior George Lucas' film Red Tails held on to the 4th place slot, beating Man on a Ledge; though it couldn't beat off Underworld Awakening, The Grey and One for the Money. And even that film stars the one person that EVERYONE hates - Katerine Heigl.

Sorry folks, I would have had this weekend's box office report much earlier as usual, but I had to wait to get this weekend's results for Pariah which took longer than usual. But I'll get to that in a minute.

First let me blow my own horn and say that S&A has been covering this French film and its black French star (Omar Sy) quiet extensively for a good 6+ months now; and I noticed a day or two ago, one mainstream news site picked up on all the transcontinental discussion about it (mostly French and American disagreements about its depiction of Omar Cy's character, which I expressed concern over from the very first time I wrote about the film in July 2011), and other sites picked up on that mainstream site's story as if it were something brand new.
