Battle Of The Blood

 

You can't keep these remakes down... budgeted at less than 10 million, many were surprised (including myself) that the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre grossed an astoundinging 28 million. Another bloody movie, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 dropped to second with only 12.4 million this weekend. But will "Massacre" have legs in an upcoming competitive movie season? We shall see.

In a disappointing third was Runaway Jury - not even an all-star cast could get droves of people to see this one. The School Of Rock, the best film I've seen so far this year, continues to pack in houses by adding another 11 million to its gross - chances are good this one might top over 80 million.

The news was good for Clint Eastwood's Mystic River. After opening to some of the year's best reviews, the film expanded to wide release this weekend and made a nice 10 million. Also holding strong is the family film Good Boy! with 8.9 million, but it will certainly be threatened by the upcoming releases of "Brother Bear" and "Elf."

Intolerable Cruelty is looking like a dud with only 6.5 million this weekend, while Out Of Time took a substantial drop to eight with only 4 million. Rounding out the top ten was Under The Tuscan Sun with 3.3 million and with 2.7 million, The Rundown.

So will a spoof of horror movies overtake a remake of one next weekend? Probably, but as always... stay tuned DVD fans!
