Box Office: Massive Winter Storm to Inflict a Chill on Northeast Theaters

Box Office: Massive Winter Storm to Inflict a Chill on Northeast Theaters
The massive Winter Storm Jonas will likely limit moviegoing in the Northeastern United States this weekend.

Many of the biggest cities in the Northeast — Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City — will be hit with heavy snow and strong winds between Friday afternoon and Sunday morning. Storm warnings have been issued for the Carolinas, Ohio Valley, Tennessee Valley, central Arkansas and northeast Louisiana.

Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with Rentrak, told Variety that the storm appears to be so large that it can’t help but have an impact, particularly since it will hit during the busiest days of moviegoing.

“Severe weather is often used as a reason for why certain movies have missed the mark during their opening weekends and in many cases it comes off like the old ‘my dog ate my homework’ excuse: easy to say, but difficult to prove,” he said. “However, this weekend

'The Wire': Links for reviews to every episode
Earlier today, HBO Signature began a marathon of the remastered, high-definition version of "The Wire." As previously discussed, this isn't the optimal way to watch the show, which was filmed with a 4:3 aspect ratio image in mind throughout its run, but David Simon and company did what they could to not compromise the look too much (and, on occasion, found that certain scenes looked better in widescreen). If you happen to have some time off at the moment — say, due to a ubiquitous holiday break — and are watching the marathon, you might want to keep my reviews of each episode handy, whether you're a first-time viewer who's been waiting all along to see the show in high-def, a former viewer curious to see how the new versions look, or simply a fan using this as an excuse to watch "The Wire" again for the umpteenth time.

'V' returns to TV via telefilm

Twenty years after NBC's hit sci-fi miniseries V invaded the small screen, the network is bringing the aliens back with V: The Second Generation, a three-hour telefilm from the original creator Kenneth Johnson. Johnson, who penned, directed and produced the mini, is set to write, direct and executive produce the sequel, which has been given a script commitment. The 1983 V (short for Visitors), which spawned a short-lived weekly series on NBC, was a sci-fi allegory of the Nazi takeover of Germany in the 1930s. It centered on the Visitors, aliens from a distant planet who'd come to Earth with the promise to solve the world's problems through their high technology, but after gaining control of the planet through subterfuge and media manipulation, began to methodically kill their enemies. A small group of humans, who discovered the Visitors' true plan -- to conquer the Earth and eat its population -- form a resistance and lead the fight against the invaders.
