Weekend B.O. Nov. 16-18 (Permit Me To Ask A Question About 'Twilight'...)

Do I have to tell you what the number one film was this weekend? What’s the point? Grossing $141 million ($71 million of that just on Friday alone - the sixth largest opening ever), it’s so easy to mock those sparkling vampires movies and the people who love them. But this time I’ll be on my best behavior, for a rare change, and not say anything.

Twilight

Do I have to tell you what the number one film was this weekend? What’s the point? Grossing $141 million ($71 million of that just on Friday alone - the sixth largest opening ever), it’s so easy to mock those sparkling vampires movies and the people who love them. But this time I’ll be on my best behavior, for a rare change, and not say anything.

But I do have a question. Do black people watch Twilight movies? I’m not joking.  I’m serious about that, really.  I’ve never thought they would attract any sort of significant number of  black filmgoers. I mean, those movies are so… pale.

If there are those who do,  make yourselves known and tell us why you like them. You can use a fake name if you want to avoid being discovered and harassed.

Skyfall came in strong in its second weekend, and its wordwide total so far is $669 million, soon to sail past the $1 billion mark, the first Bond film ever to do so.

It's already beat the previous all-time Bond box office champ, Casino Royale, which grossed $600 million worldwide. And in fact there are rumors already that Daniel Craig could get as much as $50 million for the next Bond film, which is currently being written.

The Silver Linings Playbook (which is vastly overrated - take my word for it) and Anna Karenina (which is strikingly original in its conception) both did extremely well in their very limited opening releases, and will expand to more theaters in the next few weeks.
