Some sad happenings, big openings and minor announcements.  Like most weekends at my apartment.

  • Isaac Hayes and Bernie Mac both passed away over the weekend at the respective ages of 65 and 50.  I don’t have anything cheeky to say about it.  Well, I do, but I won’t
  • Pineapple Express had a big opening this weekend, making around $22 million since Wednesday.  This wasn’t enough to smoke The Dark Knight, though which took number one for the 4th weekend in a row and has made a staggering $441 million since it opened.  Holy grosses, Batman!
  • It was announced that Brad Pitt will have a major role in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming WWII movie, Inglorious Bastards.  Also in talks are Simon Pegg and B.J. Novak from The Office.  Hostel director Eli Roth has already been cast.  I can only hope something horrific happens to his character as punishment for making Hostel.

  • There is probably going to be a 24 movie.  I wonder how long it’s going to be.  Hm.
  • Kevin Smith’s latest effort Zack and Miri Make a Porno was downgraded to an R rating from NC-17 after the director argued his case with the MPAA rating board.  Well, that makes sense…?
