The latest James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" grossed an impressive $70.4 million estimate on its debut weekend for Sony/MGM. Daniel Craig returned as James Bond in 3,451 venues and averaged a massive $20,400 per theatre. "Quantum of Solace" becomes the biggest Bond opener ever, 63% better in fact than "Casino Royale," which marked Craig's first appearance as 007. The film is currently placed as the fifth biggest-ever November opener almost on par with Disney/Pixar's "The Incredibles" at $70.467 million, although this will most likely change with the latter falling below. A remarkable feat indeed as all top November openers are either "Harry Potter" films (the first three rankings) or animated. Family genres rule the month. Second placed "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" from DreamWorks/Paramount showed a 43% change in its sophomore weekend at play with $36.1 million. The sequel animation passed $118 million.

A Look at "Max Payne" - The Review

16 October 2008 11:21 PM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Max PAYNEby Eric Sloss, Writer   Movies based on video games do not have a good creative track record over the years.  Titles such as “Doom”, “Super Mario Brothers” and “BloodRayne” have come and gone in movie theaters without making much of an impact critically or financially.  Many of these movies have the same problem.  The script has been lacking and frequently only gamers have noticed the nuances of the characters on the screen.  “Max Payne” is yet another video game adapted for the big screen.   Mark Wahlberg plays the title character with a quiet intensity.  Payne is the typical cop on the edge.  His wife and new born baby were murdered and the case is still unsolved.  He is despondent and he has relegated himself to the cold case file room.  Mysterious murders are happening all across the city.  One such murder may hold the key to find out who murdered Payne’s wife. »
