HUNGER GAMES DOESN'T GO HUNGRY
Lionsgate's 'Hunger Games' continues its incredible run. During the long Easter weekend and for its third weekend in a row, for a new worldwide total, the futuristic film has surpassed $460M, giving this box office monster a 17-day total through Easter Sunday of $157.1M international and $302.8M domestic overwhelming both box office rivals Paramount/Fox’s Titanic 3D and Universal’s American Reunion. The two domestic rivals showed strength not just in North America but even more so overseas. Hunger Games grossed $33.5M domestic and $25.5M this weekend internationally where it has been trying to stave off an onslaught from Warner Bros’ recent 3D entry Wrath Of The Titans. After a disappointing domestic start, this sequel is dominating overseas and over the holiday weekend dropped just -43% from its opener with a gross of $43M in 60 markets from 13,540 screens. WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
SO HAS THIS GUY 'REALLY' GOT THE X-FACTOR?
Then again, disingenuous protestations aside, 'Si' seems to be relishing in the increased publicity over his reported masculine musk and his ability to 'bed 'em and shred 'em.' However, we do have one rather 'small' problem with this one. He is not exactly a lady killer or even a ladies man by any exorbitant telly. Sure, he has had his fair share of hangers-on hovering over him like yesterdays stale cheese and biscuits, but who were these women REALLY?
They have all had their own agendas, whether it be business related or pocket book elevation, so any high-fiving locker room bravado from Cowell is hardly warranted. Considering the fillies he's taken under his wing, have had much more to gain from him than he would ever have gained from them. So, a Casanova, Don Juan, I doubt it very much. Infact, small man, small puppy is more like it. Throw in a gigantic ego
that really covers for a huge amount of self doubt, along with narcissistic qualities that shows off his ultra feminine side to an alarming degree. Not forgetting, any broad he does take home will firstly have to get the thumbs up from 'Mommy Dearest.' This little picture isn't sounding anywhere near that of a heart-throb's harem, infact, I doubt if any of Cowells reject's hearts have even been broken - their now swollen bank accounts assures them of that. Thank you.
RUSSELL CROW PLAYS NOAH - THE BUILDING OF THE ARC
His name is Noah. Far from the stereotype of the patriarch that one appends the character of the Bible, he looked like a warrior. He looks like a Mad Max out of the depths of time. In the world of Noah, pity has no place. He lives with his wife and three children in a land barren and hostile, in the grip of severe drought. A world marked by violence and barbarism, delivered to the savagery of the clans that draw their reason to survive from war and cruelty.
