Days after the premiere of his latest movie, The Dark Knight Rises, and one of the worst mass shootings in America, the Batman star, Christian Bale, releases a statement addressing the tragic shooting that took place in Aurora Colo.
“Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them," Bale said in his statement.
“The Amazing Spider-Man” is spinning a web of triumph this holiday season. In what has fast become the best Tuesday showing ever, Sony’s latest installment in super hero tales has grossed a cool $35.9 million. This makes the holiday's second-best take behind 2007's "Transformers," with $29.1 million.
There’s still three weeks left before "The Dark Knight Rises" hits movie theaters nationwide, but there are already early reports that the masked avenger will beat out the mass of avengers (see what I did there?) in it’s opening weekend.
Reports coming out of the L.A. Times makes note of there being just 21 promotional days remaining but reliable indicators are pointing to the film possibly making as much as $150 million in ticket sales, thus possibly nudging out the record set during opening weekend by "Marvel's The Avengers", which was set earlier this year.
This week has seen one of the best weeks in movie buzzworthiness this year. Topping the charts is the Sony Pictures movie Takers starring T.I., Chris Brown, Paul Walker, and Idris Elba. To date, the gritty theives have racked in over $20M since it's opening night on August 27th.
The good people over at Summit Entertainment are thouroughly pleased with themselves. The Twilight Saga: New Moon has set a new record for opening midnight shows with a reported earning estimated at $26.3 million.
The Twilight showing has clearly surpassed the previous pop-culture iconic movie saga, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which had a midnight take of $22.2 million this past summer.
