AMC’s computer problems made Megamind look like it was underperforming this weekend but it hit Number One with Due Date at Number Two and Tyler Perry’s critically reviled For Colored Girls Hitting Number Three was not as successful as his previous films.
Monogamy is out for 2011. At least with the slew of films including No Strings Attached with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman which hits theaters January 2011.
Todd Phillips’ Due Date is not the best successor to The Hangover and if you’re expecting it, you’re better of renting Planes, Trains And Automobiles.
Best Movies Ever already knew that Rodrigo Cortes’ next movie was Red Lights, but we found this poster at AFM which announces that Cillian Murphy has been added to the cast with Sigourney Weaver and Robert DeNiro.
Alex Gibney finally hits his stride as a documentary maker with Client 9: The Rise And Fall Of Eliot Spitzer. You might expect Eliot Spitzer to use this film as a redemption piece, but Client 9 is much more than that.
Fair Game is the true story of Valerie Plame who had the tables turned on her, but thankfully she fought back and Naomi Watts does her justice in this film by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity).
I really wanted to like Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls, but as with Precious, Perry may have done more good letting someone else helm this film as the material deserved the attention of a much more talented director like Lee Daniels who would give both it and the amazing cast the respect it deserves
I had wrongfully assumed Megamind was just going to be another superhero spoof, but Brad Pitt and Will Ferrell add much more to this smart animated film.
