Your Weekend Roundup

Well, well, well, Sex and the City 2.  Turns out you weren't quite as hip as you thought you were.  Thanks to the intrepid detective work of sumi k (and -- many, many hours later -- the media) we now all know who the real winner of the U.S. box office (second place position) was.  (Hint:  It was PRINCE OF FUCKING PERSIA.)

Oh, yeah, sumi k.  You work like that, you get a reward, baby.  I hereby give to you The Badge For Calculating the Box Office Numbers in Jake's Favor:

Congratulations, sumi k!  And who knows, there may be more merit badges to bestow upon the populace of ISJ, but I like to keep you guessing.  You just never know when I'm going to whip one of these suckers out!

And what's that?  Did somebody say sequel?

IN OTHER NEWS, have you voted for Jake yet?  You know, with The Pixel Project?  Yes?  You have?!  That's awesome!

Now sign the petition, goddamn you.  I realize that I'm asking a lot of many of you to choose between Gylls and this Skargard character, but Gylls is dead last in the petition competition and any time Gylls is dead last, a small part of me dies...

Let me remind you who you're voting for, 'kay?

Yeah, that's what I thought.  Skarsgard who?

And that's your Weekend Roundup!

Dude I knew this already! Don't ask how, but I just did!

It must be the inside knowledge I posses of the industry darling! Or it could have been the use of teletext in the early hours of the morning looking at the Entertainment pages!

My personal feat is that I managed to get 4 of my friends to see PoP instead of SATC2. I sent them the worst reviews I could find online and emailed them. It worked. =]

imagine how much my little heart was warmed upon seeing this post!

you see this, gylls? i got a badge for you! (now please, next time make sure to make your car entrance much more fancy. more pizazz, please)

im glad those botox'd skeezers fell short of their predicted scope. and im even more glad that i have two nephews who loved PoP and have asked me to take them to see it two more times this week.

however. why wasnt this in 3d? im assuming because Bruckheimer didnt want to cause a mass genocide of women nationwide? and has this been released in Imax in the US yet? i know internationally they have PoP Imax, but i dont believe we have it in the states yet. this makes me quite a sad sumi.

sumi k, you have earned it well, my friend! :D I'm still excited about the final numbers. (It doesn't take much.) I'm not sure about IMAX because I lived somewhere where our theaters are monopolized by a company that doesn't believe in letting us seeing movies on huge screens... But it doesn't look like it's hit IMAX screens in the US, in which case, what the frick are they waiting for?!

RH2006, even I, with all of my worldly influence, managed to get only 2 friends to go and another one to "think about it" after (traitorously!!) already seeing SATC2. So well freaking done.

NRM, you don't have to pretend for my sake. I know Jake called you up personally this morning and gave you the box office news. ;)

Congrats Sumi K! Welcome to the merit badge club ;)

Well yesterday i was annoyed at my fiance for going and seeing POP while he is away with work. He promised me he would see this movie with me (the only Jake movie he has ever said he would watch with me!) And he cheated on me, and took other boys to see it. But now im secretly happy because they helped those numbers!!! They helped Jake win! (second *ahem*)

Gylls- you said GYLLS!!! I think this nickname is going to stick!

And yeh, after those pictures... Skarsgard who?!

Becky Heineke June 1, 2010 at 8:56 PM  

I definitely went the Gylls route. I might be on a mission to make that one stick... ;D

And your fiancée gets *mega* extra points for increasing the box office draw, Sam. This is a team effort!!

Speaking of which, I just got back from my second POP viewing, which was a total whim, and which made me realize that I should not go out and drink with friends before I go see Jake movies because it made so much more sense this time (duh).
