Teens Love WOLVERINE

Fans and critics seemed to dislike it. It did middling business at the box office. But the teens have spoken and, according to the results of the 2009 Teen Choice Awards, 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' is a winner!

The film took in awards for Choice Movie Action Adventure and Choice Movie Actor Action Adventure for Hugh Jackman.

Also grabbing a few trophies were the autobot sidekicks Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. They won for Choice Summer Movie Star Male and Choice Summer Movie Star Female respectively in 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'.

And our middle-aged superhero teen Tom Welling also scored a trophy for Choice TV Actor: Action Adventure in 'Smallville'.

 

 

G.I JOE Attacks Box Office

'G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra' has opened at #1 this weekend according to Mania's Box Office Report. The film took in $56.2 million, handily trouncing all comers.

Paramount publicists hid the film from all but a hand-picked crop of critics, but still couldn't stave off a 39% rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes by the week's end. Still that's better than the 20% rotten the studio's other Hasbro movie 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' got.

'Joe''s appearance on the charts helped push 'Fallen' out of the top 10 this week.

According to charts maintained by Box Office Mojo, 'Rise of Cobra' enjoyed the #8 best opening of the year and the #4 best August opening of all time.

The Real American Heroes also cleaned up overseas, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It was #1 in foreign markets pulling in an additional $44.1 million from 5,750 screens in 35 territories.

Not bad for a movie that is too terrible to preview!

 

 

Mania Review: G.I. JOE

In case you missed it, the Mania's intrepid Rob Vaux checked out 'G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra' on Friday and didn't really dig it so much:

"That it's howlingly awful goes without saying, but it won't be the first bad movie to come out this summer and its efforts hold more honor than some. Yet when the most basic levels of enjoyment--the point-and-shoot gunfights and Q-branch goodies upon which the franchise is based--explode on the tarmac, then the "good popcorn fun" excuse runs dry in a hurry. "

Grade: D+

 

 

Leterrier Wants a four-part AVENGERS mega-serial

Speaking from the set of his currently filming 'Clash of the Titans', director Louis Leterrier shared with the L.A. Times his dream of working on several second-tier Marvel characters and even an 'Avengers' mega-serial that would unspool in theaters over one summer.

"I would love to do the Avengers film. I’d love to work with Marvel again," Leterrier enthused. "I’ll tell you my real dream: To work with Joe Johnston [director of 'Captain America'] and Kenneth Branagh [director of 'Thor'] and Jon Favreau ['Iron Man 2'] and make like a triptych. We do four movies. We release them one a month for the summer. Or even every two weeks or three weeks. And the whole summer would be Avengers summer. So we do it the way they make television shows. One story arc but told in installments by different directors. So all of the directors that touch part of the Avengers world would do a part; we could make the movies shorter, maybe less than an hour and a half, and we use the same sets and save Marvel money. I would love to sit around a table with all of them a kick around the story. That’s my dream."

An unlikely dream it may be, but Leterrier still hopes to shape future Marvel Movies. "There are so many Marvel films I’d like to see and they’d be a bit deeper into the mythology. I’d like to see a Silver Surfer and Mephisto film, or Guardians of the Galaxy or perhaps Iron Fist, if done right...A different Fantastic Four would be great, too."

SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD - Blog 11 - Battle Scars

As the production of 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World 'rounds out its third month of filming, director Edgar Wright gets a bit slap-happy and takes us to the film's biggest set yet.

 

 

The new KICK-ASS Trailer

And if you were at Chicago Comic-Con this weekend, you may have seen this new trailer for 'Kick-Ass' which shows us Big Daddy and the Red Mist in action (for lack of a better word) for the first time...

 

 

IRON MAN 2 Footage is still online

If you were paying attention to the interwebs this weekend you saw the San Diego Comic-Con footage from 'Iron Man 2' going on and off line. Fans post it, publicists demand it be pulled down (even as they Twitter the URL of the forbidden footage).

Here's the currently available clip reel featuring Iron Man, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Whiplash and...War Machine! It'll probably be pulled offline soon, so post any alternate links you discover in the comments below...

IM2 looks great.

hanso 8/10/2009 7:41:08 AM

The IM footage was dope but from the link I saw over the weekend, I couldn't understand what the hell was being said during the Mickey Rourke section of it. Does anyone know?

mrBig 8/10/2009 8:02:39 AM

Just rambling about "thieves and butchers"...obviously got a grudge against Stark and his business....Footage looks good..shaky but good...

littlemikey979 8/10/2009 8:05:01 AM

IM2 does look freakin awesome, can't wait to see WM and IM go a few rounds on the big screen, you know they will. Wish there would have been more footage of Black Widow. Hope they don't pull the video it's gonna get everyone pumped. Hell, just the last 10 seconds is all they really needed to show anyways!

pilgram 8/10/2009 8:07:59 AM

Iornman looks great. Love it. Kick-Ass does also. I cannot wait for both.

pilgram 8/10/2009 8:13:45 AM

Am I the only one who doesn’t care about “scott pilgram vs. the world” at this point (or any future point that I can foresee)?

Wiseguy 8/10/2009 8:25:49 AM

hanso, Rourke was saying something about there being blood in the waters and sharks would soon follow or something to that effect. I couldn't make it out either cause his Russian accent but remember a description of the footage

Letterier's idea would never fly. A studio isn't going to shoot its entire load in one year never mind one summer. Marvel has said that it wants to put out 2 films a year and I've read unofficially maybe as many as 4, but I think the latter was just speculation

Besides you have to give people a chance to take it all in, whet their appetite, let them savor it and digest it then you do it again with the dvd sales, now you're ready for another. Letterier obviously doesn't believe in foreplay

Wiseguy 8/10/2009 8:30:48 AM

Pilgram with your name I thought you might be the one guy interested in Scott Pilgrim. Anyway I told Rob a while back that he was brainwashing people into taking an interest in this with all his updates. Apparently it isn't working too well. Wright's attachment will bring in his small fan base at least but I'm with you, maybe a kick ass trailer will change that

wessmith1966 8/10/2009 8:33:53 AM

pilgram...no, you're not the only one. I could care less about the Pilgram movie. I don't know much about Kick Ass, never read it, but what I've seen so far looks good.

I think Rob was a little harsh in his G.I. Joe review. I think it was the best movie you could get from the subject matter. Let's face it, G.I. Joe itself is a little silly, so how could you expect more from the movie. I really think Sommers got it right, if you take the movie for what it was meant to be.

The Ironman footage looks great. I never saw the big attraction to War Machine, but it did look cool. I'm not sold on the villain though; looks kinda weak. I can't wait to see the movie...and Scarlett too, she looks hot as hell.

The Avengers movies is a cool idea, but we all know that'll never happen. Whatever happened to the Black Panther movie?

Wiseguy 8/10/2009 8:53:22 AM

I read somewhere that Tim Roth said that he was signed for 3 films with Marvel. So already the speculation that the Abomination may play the villain or one of the villains in The Avengers film has started.

wessmith, all signs from Marvel is that The Avengers movie will indeed happen as they already have their plan of attack mapped out, storyline working on and scheduled for summer 2012. This isn't like the JLA film that seemed to be thrown together in a couple of weeks, this plan has been in motion for almost 2 years now
