Weak-ass weekend for Kick-Ass

Kick-Ass almost got its ass kicked by a four-week-old dragon. The R-rated superhero movie based on the Mark Millar comic failed to reach even the $20 million-mark in its opening weekend, a massive disappointment considering the hype and positive reviews. Still, it managed to eek out How to Train Your Dragon by fewer than $200,000, meaning for the second straight week, the film predicted to win the box office on Sunday ended up not making the most money when the final total came in.

The Avengers recruit Joss Whedon

Just when it seems Marvel rolls out of favor with geekdom and fanboyhood, it swims right back in it. Deadline writes that beloved sci-fi writer, director and producer Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly) is said to be in the final stages of negotiating for creative control over 2012’s highly anticipated Avengers movie, which will bring together Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and in all likelihood many more for superhero epic-ness.

Whedon’s greatest success has been with television. “Buffy” was obviously a phenomenon and it spawned a spin-off, Dark Angel, while Firefly was the most successful sci-fi series that didn’t last very long but led to the enjoyable film version, Serenity. Whedon also piloted Internet sensation Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog which helped make Neil Patrick Harris a household name once again.

Date Night topples “Titans”

Note: This article was based on the weekend estimates, which figured Date Night had finished No. 1. In fact, Clash of the Titans was the actual winner when the Sunday receipts were officially totaled.

Clash of the Titans more or less turned to stone in its second weekend, allowing Steve Carell and Tina Fey comedy Date Night to take the No. 1 spot in America. The top three films were all close, with How to Train Your Dragon having a fantastic third week, declining just 12 percent from last weekend thanks to tremendous positive reviews.

Gears of War film enters game-movie limbo

The LA Times reported recently that the movie version of Gears of War the video game has unfortunately fallen into videogame/movie limbo.

Much like Castlevania, Halo, and a third Tomb Raider movie, the powers to be at New Line have other projects they want to pursue currently. It’s hard to tell what the true cause of the delay is. It might be behind these developments. The movie industry is fickle, and New Line’s priorities may reflect nothing more than a shift in what interets them.

Wanted writer Chris Morgan turned in a script that was apparently good. It just fell to the wayside and might need more power behind it in terms of a major film developer, in order for it to happen. With a reported $100 million budget, the studio wants it scaled down.  Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hardwas going to direct the film, but has since moved onto other projects.  

Video game movies, like comic book movies, need a big hit like X-Men or Spider-Man in order to become a force to be reckoned with. Maybe this Summer’s Prince of Persia from Jerry Brukheimer will do it so that we might see better films made of good games.
