Some People's Kids: In Theaters Tomorrow…

In Theaters Tomorrow…

There are only two films being released this week, and there is a very good reason for the lack of choices. To sum in one word that reason is… SPIDERMAN!!!!!!!!! The unlucky other film to be released on this most holy of days is LUCKY YOU with Eric Bana and Drew Barrymore. Can the Hulk and one of Charlie’s angels take the Box office? No freakin’ way, Spidey is going to make like 3 billion dollars after traveling through the world’s theaters and landing on the DVD rack.

SPIDERMAN 3 has not one, but three villains. One of which is the single greatest evil-doer ever. Venom is going to make this film the highest grossing Spiderman film yet to date… the original sits at #7 (14 world) on the all-time U.S. Box Office list and the second is sitting at #10 (19 world). Not only are the new villains fantastic choices, but the actors are great too. Topher Grace from that 70’s show plays Eddie Brock (Venom) and Thomas Hayden Church plays Flint Marko (Sandman). James Franco is also back in the role of Harry Osborn (The New Goblin). I probably don’t even have to tell you this much because you don’t even have to see the film to know what’s up… if its not being talked about on television, in print or somewhere else on this Internet thing people you walk past will probably be talking about it. Hell, New York is even having a Spiderman week.

In LUCKY YOU Eric Bana plays a degenerate gambler trying to win the World Series of Poker. He also tries to bang Drew Barrymore. Horatio Sanz, Robert Duvall, Robert Downey Jr. and Debra Messing come along for the ride. I guess there are a bunch of professional poker players in the film and its more of a poker movie than a chick flick, but they chose the wrong release date and campaign strategy.

Box Office prediction #1 by a mile SPIDERMAN #2 NEXT (because people who can’t get into Spidey will go for an action flick) #3 DISTURBIA #4 FRACTURE #5 THE INVISIBLE
