"Argo" Tops Box-Office, "Cloud Atlas" Flops 

And finally, Ben Affleck's "Argo" topped the box-office weekend after three weeks. The surefire Oscar contender took in $12.3 million for the No. 1 spot, beating new releases such as "Cloud Atlas" and "Fun Size."

"Cloud Atlas" from the Wachowskis ("The Matrix" films) and Tom Tykwer ("Run Lola Run") took in $9.5 million for the No. 3 spot. The Tom Hanks/Halle Berry-starrer was budgeted for $100 million, so this film, as creative-forward as it was, flopped. ("Cloud Atlas" movie review)

Meanwhile, newcomer "Fun Size" also failed to bring in the fun at the box-office. The Paramount/Nickelodeon flick starring Victoria Justice debuted at No. 10 with $4 million. This film, directed by Josh Schwartz from a 2010 Black List script by Max Werner, was only budgeted for $14 million, so it would be easier for "Fun Size" to recoup its money comapred to "Cloud Atlas."

Previous weekend's box-office champ, "Paranormal Activity 4," fell to the No. 4 spot with $8.6 million. ("Paranormal Activity 4" interview with Kathryn Newton and Matt Shively)

Here's the estimated Top 10 Box-Office films for the weekend of Oct. 26th:

1. "Argo," $12.3 million
2. "Hotel Transylvania," $9.5 million
3. "Cloud Atlas," $9.4 million
4. "Paranormal Activity 4," $8.6 million
5. "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D," $8 million
6. "Taken 2," $8 million
7. "Here Comes the Boom," $5.5 million
8. "Sinister," $5 million
9. "Alex Cross," $5 million
10. "Fun Size," $4 million

“Paranormal Activity 4” Interview with Kathryn Newton (Alex) and Matt Shively (Ben)  

“Paranormal Activity 4” is the No. 1 movie in America and the world. Moviegoers love the franchise as much as I do (okay, the fourth one may not be the best but it’s still worth your money). 5 years after the events of “Paranormal Activity 2,” we meet a suburban family who begins to experience strange occurrences after they take in a super-creepy kid. ("Paranormal Activity 4" movie review)

Soon, Alex (Kathryn Newton) and her pal, Ben (Matt Shively) decide to investigate using smartphones and video messaging. Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, “Paranormal Activity 4” is still a fun haunted house of a ride. I sat down with Kathryn and Matt to talk about:

*** Being a part of the ultra-popular “Paranormal Activity” franchise
*** How they kept the plot and the movie a secret from family and friends – the script was so closely guarded that it was first called “Double Decker”
*** How long did it take to shoot the film?
*** Why is the franchise so popular?
*** What will they be for Halloween?

Have fun!

Watch My "Cloud Atlas" and "Fun Size" Movie Reviews 

This week, two big films duking it out at the box-office are the teen comedy romp “Fun Size” and the mind-bending drama “Cloud Atlas.” “Fun Size” set around Halloween stars Victoria Justice as Wren who finds out that Hollow’s Eve means strengthening the bond between her and her family. (My interview with director Josh Schwartz; and click here for my interviews with the cast of "Fun Size")

In “Cloud Atlas,” adapted from the “previously thought of” unadaptable book by David Mitchell, Tom Hanks and Halle Berry star in the creative work by the writers/directors The Wachowskis (Lana and Andy who gave us “The Matrix” movies) and Tom Tykwer (“Run Lola Run”).

So which one is my pick of the week? Let’s take a look:

Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Be Back As...."Conan!" 

Sorry Jason Momoa, we love you but we just didn't buy you as Conan. So, Universal Pictures will reboot the reboot and bring the original Conan back, Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the role of the muscular, sword fighter. According to Deadline, the new film will be called "The Legend of Conan" and we will see Arnold as an older Conan. I can see it now, he has to deal with aging, death, and dying. Chris Morgan (four "Fast and Furious" films, "Wanted") will produce and write the script.

"The Legend of Conan" will be a sequel following 1982's "Conan the Barbarian." So the production team will be ignoring the 1984 sequel, "Conan the Destroyer."

This is kind of exciting but can Arnold still pull it off as Conan? Specifically, wearing his mythical banana hammock? :wink
