It’s only fitting that 42 won the box office crown this weekend. Tomorrow, the Major Baseball League celebrates its annual Jackie Robinson Day celebrating the first African-American’s debut in the MLB. The biopic starring newcomer Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford raked in $27.3 million, besting recent baseball-themed films. Moneyball and Trouble With The Curve debuted with $19.5 million and $12.2 million respectively. 42 should have a healthy run given its A+ CinemaScore grade and playing well to different demos- African-American crowds, older moviegoers and women.
Also opening this weekend was the fifth installment of the Scary Movie franchise. The spoof sequel starring Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Ashley Tisdale earned a disappointing $15.2 million. It’s predecessor brought in $40.2 million in its opening weekend seven years ago. The silver lining here is it did better than Lohan’s last film. With a C- CinemaScore grade, the film’s future looks even scarier than Lohan’s ;) Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.
The first full trailer for Scary Movie 5 has just come out and as you might expect, it’s full of the cheesy, celebrity cameo-filled humor that we’ve come to expect from the franchise.
Former Highschool Musical / Hellcats star, Ashley Tisdale has taken on the lead role in the film, previously only held by Anna Faris. The film’s core spoof is of Paranormal Activity, and follows three dancers, one veteran performer and two upstarts who are also best friends and competing for the lead in a new production from a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed director. In addition to Tisdale, the film also stars Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Erica Ash, Simon Rex, Heather Locklear, Katt Williams, Molly Shannon, Audrina Patridge, Kendra Wilkinson, Sheree Whitfield, Mike Tyson, and so many more. A lot of these people are featured in the trailer, while many are not. Unfortunately, Molly Shannon isn’t shown in the trailer and she’s one of the ones I’m looking forward to most!
In Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen’s scene, Lohan screams in terror while looking at the television screen which shows footage of her heading into a courthouse and a news headline that reads, “Breaking News: Probation Revoked. Jail Time For Lohan?” her getting her probation revoked. As a sidenote, in an earlier scene there’s a guy named Dom Kolb who comes over to do a dream extraction and he looks so much like Leonardo DiCaprio… but it’s not him. The actor’s name is Ben Cornish. The film comes out in 2013. Check out the trailer below!
Wow, two days in a row where what I’ve written about Lindsay Lohan actually had to do with her work (mostly). Yesterday, the poster was revealed for the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick, where Lohan plays Elizabeth Taylor.
Today, the first photo from the sex scene that Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen have in Scary Movie 5 was released. Apparently, the two had a lot of fun with it in on set and Lohan was a good sport and makes fun of herself in the scene as well. I loved the scene when she made fun of herself during her guest appearance on Glee.
Scary Movie 5 hits theatres in 2013 and also features Ashley Tisdale, Kate Walsh, Heather Locklear, Molly Shannon and Craig Bierko. It sounds like it’s going to be absolutely hilarious with this cast and I can’t wait to see it. Check out the photo of Lindsay and Charlie below.
