THE HUNGER GAMES was the BIGGEST movie of the weekend. It made over $155 million from Friday through Sunday…making it the third highest debut ever and the most ever for a movie that’s not a sequel. And it’s not just raking in the money…it’s also getting great reviews.
So how does it stack up against movies like Twilight and Harry Potter? Well, it’s not even close! The Hunger Games more than doubled Twilight‘s debut. The better comparisons involve the vampire saga’s sequels. When you do that, Twilight wins some…Breaking Dawn Part 1, Eclipse and New Moon all debuted bigger at midnight and on their opening days…but The Hunger Games still wins the most important stat: opening-weekend bragging rights.
The Hunger Games opened bigger than all of the Harry Potter sequels, except one…Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The one sequel The Hunger Games didn’t beat, is still Hollywood’s weekend king. But, Deathly Hallows: Part 2‘s total was boosted by 3-D ticket prices; The Hunger Games got by on 2-D.
With that kind of success you know there’s all kinds of hype coming our way. It may have already started with The Hunger Games Name Generator. You just type your own name and gender in and it spits out a slightly offbeat dystopian name. Mine is Skene Spottiswoode. What’s yours? Find out HERE.
GUYS NEED TO STOP COOKING. A new study has found that women would prefer their husbands cook them dinner rather than make love with them! The survey found 77% of women are “very impressed” by a guy that knows how to cook…and 90% would pick a home-cooked meal over getting flowers from their man.
On the other hand…the survey found that guys also like a woman that can cook…but we just prefer she do it between the sheets! Two-thirds of men said they prefer a partner who is “good in bed” rather than “good in the kitchen”.
I personally cook a lot. When I was single I found that women really loved that…especially when I cooked a romantic dinner just for them. That usually led to a great “dessert”…if you know what I mean. And I think you do! However, it looks as if things have changed…unless this survey is completely off base. Ladies…I’ll leave it up to you to respond and set the record straight.
In the meantime, my take away from this is: guys DON’T become good cooks!
YOU’VE PROBABLY HEARD BY NOW that Kim Kardashian got flour bombed on the red carpet at the launch party for her new fragrance, True Reflection.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was called to the hotel where they took the woman, an animal rights protester, into custody. She was later released at the scene when Kim decided not to press charges…mostly because she didn’t want to distract herself from the event.
However, it looks like Kim may be changing her mind and is now looking at filing charges.
WHILE I DON’T AGREE WITH THE FLOUR BOMBER…I do agree with a Tweet from actor/singer Will Smith.
A psuedo-celebrity has flour dumped on her head and a woman gets arrested and then released…but a 17 year old kid gets shot dead in Florida for wearing a hoody and there’s been NO arrest made. What’s wrong with that picture? I don’t even want to start answering that or else I’ll be here all day. But it’s safe to say I think the guy in Florida should be arrested and charged with murder.
AMERICAN IDOL CELEBRATED last week…but today is the actual day. Happy Birthday to Aerosmith lead-singer Steven Tyler.
