Spring Breakers’ Box Office Bomb: Why Onscreen Butts Don’t Equal Butts in the Seats

Spring Breakers ButtsSpring Breakers‘ $5 million, 6th place weekend box office spot isn’t exactly a loss. The hypersexualized movie, directed by Kids co-writer Harmony Korine, only cost $2 million to make.

It was also surprisingly well-reviewed by some (even Richard Roeper is a perv), with a slightly higher rating on Rotten Tomatoes than The Croods. Others called it “racist” and “thoughtless.”

Five million does however seem very low considering the amount of hype and advertising Spring Breakers received. Sort of reminds me of another flick that promised lots of sexiness and hidden statements about human behavior and culture…  Continue reading “Spring Breakers’ Box Office Bomb: Why Onscreen Butts Don’t Equal Butts in the Seats”

‘Jennifer’s Body’ Is Amanda Seyfried’s Favorite

In her shared October cover and spread in W Magazine with Justin Timberlake, to promote their film In Time (Gattaca meets Twilight Zone meets The Adjustment Bureau) Amanda Seyfried explained that her favorite movie that she ever worked on is Jennifer’s Body.

I’m glad she’s still talking about this cause Jennifer’s Body WAS horribly marketed, though her quote tends to contradict the purpose of the movie. Director/writer Diablo Cody always explained the Fox/Seyfried make-out scene as “scary” and not meant to create boners. (I think that’s impossible)

Here’s what Amanda S. had to say about the 2009 film,

“Jennifer’s Body is my favorite movie that I’ve done. It was overlooked in theaters, but it does have a DVD following. I can’t believe nobody wanted to see Megan Fox and me hitting it.”

Emma Watson’s New Man-Meat, Johnny Simmons

Harry Potter star and England’s sweetheart, Emma Watson, has a new boyfriend! He’s that guy Chip from Jennifer’s Body oh and the guitarist kid from Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Johnny Simmons.

He’s kind of understated, and perhaps boring, at least in those movies, but maybe he’s a nice guy? He’s 24, but uhhh looks 15? So there’s that. The two lover-vultures were spotted in Santa Monica, scarfing food and sucking face. (Not in that order or at the same time? Though who knows what they’re into)

They are set to star in the movie version of the controversial novel, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, controversial to parent-teacher groups that is. Because it covers topics like gay sex, drugs, alcohol and date rape.

Ummm I read it several years ago and don’t remember finding it controversial at all? But maybe that says something scary about my nature, or maybe these book-burning cougar Republicans need to find better things to do with their time than protesting items that could help their children LEARN about real life.

Anyways, happy trails, Emma Watson. I really liked Deathly Hallows Part 2 but was that a silent film for you or what?

Megan Fox Can Do Comedy?? DUH

Judd Apatow’s wife, and a female comedic actress in her own right, Leslie Mann was at the L.A. premiere for her movie The Change Up and started talking about Judd’s new project, the confirmed Knocked Up spinoff.

A spinoff which co-stars none other than my favorite quirky, mentally-unfit-to-raise-a-goldfish, hot ghost lady, Megan Fox. Here is the exact mumble-tastic quote from Leslie:

“Megan Fox is so funny yeah she’s hilarious, I, you know, you wouldn’t, I mean I dunno if other people, I dunno, I think she’s really funny.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised.”

Okay, I’M not surprised. I dunno if anyone else saw her on Saturday Night Live, Jennifer’s Body (everybody misunderstood that movie) or the indie comedy How To Lose Friends And Alienate People, but this is the only kind of “acting” Mrs. David Silver or as I like to call him Brian Austin G (emphasis on “G,” it’s an ironic gangster name) should be doing.
