The Social Network for the win! I guess it’s not really a surprise that making a film about one of the most popular things on the internet (which is saying a lot) makes for a popular movie. That coupled with the fact that you have David Fincher behind it who, although not always a box office champ, has continued to make one solid film after another.
Other new comers like Case 39, the long awaited Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper horror basically tanked and Let Me In, Matt Reeves (read interview) remake of Let the Right One In seems to only be coming in slightly above that. Hopefully with a wider release we’ll see Let Me In take off – it deserves to! And hell the bothered with the whole remake for everyone who was scared of subtitles, you might as well go and see it now that you don’t have to read!
