"Shrek" Remains No. 1 Box-Office Champion After Third-Straight Weekend! 


New releases failed to topple down the mighty green ogre. "Shrek Forever After" remained the No. 1 movie after three weeks emerging victorious over "Marmaduke," "Splice," "Get Him to the Greek," and "Killers."

"Shrek" grabbed $25.3 million at the box-office, raising its three-week domestic total to $183 million. Universal's quasi-spin off of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Get Him to the Greek," was the best of the four box-office newcomers. The comedy from the Judd Apatow factory debuted at No. 2 with $17.4 million.

Russell Brand rehashed his "Sarah Marshall" character, Aldous Snow, for this fun raunch-fest co-starring Jonah Hill and Sean P.Diddy Combs. (Check out my "Get Him to the Greek" movie review right here)

Debuting at No. 3 with $16.1 million was "Killers," Lionsgate's action comedy starring Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher. This film wasn't shown in advance to critics, so you know what that meant, "Killers" wasn't that good and Lionsgate was not proud of its product.

20th Century Fox's family comedy based on a popular comic strip, "Marmaduke," made $11.3 million while the horror "Frankenstein" inspired tale, "Splice," from Warner Bros. made $7.5 million. (Check out my interviews with stars Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley, and Delphine Chaneac, and my "Splice" movie review)

So apparently, movie attendance was down from last year. Um, is it because the slate this summer is not as exciting as last year's? And really, it's still too early for the summer, we still have "Toy Story 3" coming up, and next week's 80s revivals, "The Karate Kid" and "The A-Team." (HINT: I enjoyed "The A-Team" tremendously -- I'll post my review very soon!)

And with all this doom and gloom report about how box-office receipts are down blah blah blah, revenues are up 3.7 percent at $4.47 billion BUT factoring in higher ticket prices, attendance has slipped at 2.7 percent. Just wait, "Twilight: Eclipse" will save us all, or perhaps, Christopher Nolan's "Inception!"

Here's the list of the estimated Top 10 box-office films for weekend of June 4th:

1. "Shrek Forever After," $25.3 million.

2. "Get Him to the Greek," $17.4 million.

3. "Killers," $16.1 million.

4. "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," $13.9 million.

5. "Sex and the City 2," $12.7 million.

6. "Marmaduke," $11.3 million.

7. "Iron Man 2," $7.8 million.

8. "Splice," $7.5 million.

9. "Robin Hood," $5.1 million.

10. "Letters to Juliet," $3 million.

"Get Him to the Greek" and "Splice" Movie Reviews 


My movie reviews of two of the biggest films opening this weekend, Universal Pictures' "Get Him to the Greek" and Warner Bros. Pictures' "Splice." (Read my "Splice" movie review right here)

For my full, in-depth interviews with the "Splice" cast, click here for Adrien Brody, here for Sarah Polley, and here for the "Splice" monster herself, Delphine Chanéac.

And here are my reviews:



Here's more info on "Get Him to the Greek" from Yahoo:

Aaron Green gets things done. The ambitious 24-year-old has been given a career-making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.'s world famous Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a huge comeback tour. His record mogul boss, Sergio Roma, gives him one warning: "The artist is the worst person on Earth. Turn your back on him at your own peril." British rocker Aldous Snow is a brilliant musician, but due to a bad break up and nose-diving career, has fallen off the wagon and is now a drunken disaster. Weary of "yes men" and scared he's entered the "greatest hits" moment in his career, Snow's in the midst of a nihilistic downward spiral. When he learns his true love, model/pop star Jackie Q, is in Los Angeles, Aldous makes it his quest to win her back--right before kick-starting his world domination. As the countdown to the concert begins, one innocent young man must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound--all while trying to remain faithful to his med student girlfriend. He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.

And here's for "Splice":

Clive and Elsa are a pair of brilliant scientists whose cutting-edge experiments in genetic engineering make them superstars in their field. As devoted to their careers as they are to one another, they start conducting unauthorized experiments with new animal species that show great promise. Drunk with their god-like powers, they introduce human DNA into one of their creations, producing a creature that is greater than the sum of its parts: a rapidly developing animal/human hybrid that may be a step up on the evolutionary ladder. While this female creature inspires maternal feelings in Elsa, she evokes something far-from-paternal in Clive, something that poses a threat to them all. Then, when this seemingly perfect organism makes a final, shocking metamorphosis, it is mankind itself that is threatened.
