After a series of increasingly dire weeks at the box office, 'Oz the Great and Powerful' arrived and shook things up in a major way, earning the first truly massive opening weekend of 2013 and setting the table for all kinds of Oz-related content in the near future. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is something that we'll let you judge.
With Hollywood focused on the Oscars, this was one of the dullest box office weekends in recent memory, with each of the new releases arriving with a shrug, last week's champions plummeting and 'Identity Thief' climbing back to the top of the chart.
For many people, the short film categories at the Oscars serve as an opportunity to run to the bathroom or to grab a beer from the kitchen. After all, what kind of investment can you have in a category where you know nothing about any of the nominees? Well, let's rectify that! All five of the nominees in the Best Animated Short category have popped up online and you can watch them below!
When it was announced that 'Transformers' director Michael Bay was going to produce a reboot of the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' franchise, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth across the great expanse of the internet. Then there was the title change, removing "teenage" and "mutant" from the equation (at least on the surface). Then there was the script leak and the reveal that the Turtles were now aliens. Then there was the announcement of Jonathan Liebesman as director. To say that fans were unhappy would be an understatement -- things got so ugly that Bay had to personally address them on his blog.
But the film is still moving forward. In fact, it looks like it may start shooting in April.
Whoever first pitched 'Wreck-It Ralph' certainly got a nice big bonus check from Disney today. A cute hook that appeals to adults and kids + positive reviews = one of the biggest openings in weeks. And hey! 'Flight' didn't do too shabby either! Wait...are this good box office numbers? Does this mean the holiday movie season has officially arrived? Yes. Yes it has.
