Review: Willow

  • Comicmix
Sometimes you are born for a life of adventure and sometimes adventure recruits you into its cause. For George Lucas, the latter approach is preferable as witnessed in Luke Skywalker in Star Wars and Willow Ufgood in Willow. While Skywalker unknowingly had it in his blood, Willow was far more the ordinary person thrust into an extraordinary cause.

Lucas conceived of Willow’s tale back in 1972 and kept it rattling around his mind until technology was sophisticated enough to tackle it on film. Casting Warwick Davis as Wicket in Return of the Jedi probably began the move from backburner to the front of the production slate even though it was another five years before the film began production. By then, Lucas was no longer interested in directing, instead choosing Ron Howard to mount his first major fantasy. By then, Howard, who was a directing contemporary of Lucas although they traveled in different circles,

Review: Yogi Bear

What can a pic-a-nic basket hold? A whole lot of fun for the entire family! The latest installment of the beloved brown bear that talks is coming to theaters in 3-D. This rendition has another twist is live action with animation. There have been a couple animated movies/specials over the years since the animated series rolled out of the Hanna-Barbera production company back in 1961. Only running for 2 seasons, Yogi the Bear and his sidekick Boo Boo have remained iconic animated characters for almost 50 years. .

Yogi Bear. has the characters everyone has loved over the years and a couple new ones too. Yogi, voiced by Dan Akroyd (Ghostbusters, Antz) is no stranger to comedy. The majority of his career has been in and around comedy, if not live action then animation. His voice is unimpeachable as Yogi, which was originally uttered by Daws Butler Aka Voice Magician. Justin Timberlake (Yu-Gi-Oh!

See The New Yogi Bear Trailer & Poster

I kid you not. From Yahoo! Movies comes this first teaser trailer for “everyone’s favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear Yogi Bear, a live-action/CG animated adventure in 3D to be unleashed December 2010.” Is nothing sacred anymore?

Good night nurse. I shake my head at the thought of this kind of schlock.


Jellystone Park has been losing business, so Mayor Brown has decided to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors and, even worse, Yogi and his pal Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they’ve ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is “smarter than the average bear,” as he and Boo Boo join forces with Ranger Smith to find a way to save the park from closing forever.

July Preview

After a lackluster start to the summer, things got rolling again in June thanks to strong performances from Toy Story 3 and The Karate Kid. That momentum is likely to continue in to July with the launch of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and the rest of July is filled out with a host of potentially crowd-pleasing fare like Inception, Salt, The Last Airbender and Dinner for Schmucks. It would take exceptional numbers, though, for July 2010 to exceed July 2008's record $1.27 billion total, but July 2009's $1.05 billion should be within reach. Eclipse opens June 30, but it's effectively a July release because its first weekend starts July 2. The third Twilight movie hits theaters just over seven months after The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which set the opening day record ($72.7 million) and ultimately collected $296.6 million. The history of closely-timed, serialized sequels like The Matrix Revolutions and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

'Alice' Tops Again, 'Diary,' 'Bounty' Neck-and-Neck

'Alice' Tops Again, 'Diary,' 'Bounty' Neck-and-Neck
Despite solid starts from Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The Bounty Hunter, Alice in Wonderland held on to the top spot for the third weekend in a row, down 45 percent to an estimated $34.5 million. Overall, weekend business was up 20 percent from the same timeframe last year, when Knowing opened to $24.6 million.

Alice in Wonderland's $34.5 million weekend represents the sixth highest-grossing third weekend ever, and its total now sits at $265.8 million in 17 days. On Saturday, Alice surpassed Batman to become director Tim Burton's highest grossing movie ever, though Batman and several others still rank higher in terms of estimated attendance. Alice also topped 300 last Monday to become the highest-grossing March release ever.

Despite a lack of distinctive marketing, Diary of a Wimpy Kid drew a decent crowd, opening to an estimated $21.8 million on approximately 3,400 screens at 3,077 sites. It was the biggest start ever for a non-animated, non-fantasy children's book adaptation.

Weekend Preview: 'The Bounty Hunter,' 'Repo Men,' 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'

While three movies make their nationwide debut this weekend, it is unlikely that any of them will end Alice in Wonderland's reign. Alice held relatively well last weekend, down 46 percent to $62.7 million, good for fifth among the all time highest-grossing second weekends. Its midweek numbers have been strong (this Wednesday was off only 30 percent from last Wednesday), indicating that its drop this weekend will be even lighter than last. This should put Alice in line for one of the biggest third weekend grosses on record.

Among the new movies, The Bounty Hunter is likely to pack the biggest punch, playing on approximately 3,800 screens at 3,074 sites. The romantic/action comedy brings together appealing leads Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler, who have separately had solid runs recently in comparable titles like The Ugly Truth ($88.9 million), He's Just Not That Into You ($93.9 million) and The Break-Up ($118.7 million).

Rookie 'Invincible' atop boxoffice depth chart

Rookie 'Invincible' atop boxoffice depth chart
Buena Vista's Invincible, an inspirational football tale starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Ericson Core, scored the most yardage at the nation's multiplexes Friday. According to the boxoffice tracking site, the picture stood in first place for the day with an estimated gross of $5.35 million. It nearly doubled the take of the No. 2 film, Warner Bros. comedy Beerfest, which took in an estimated $2.7 million. Among the weekend's other new arrivals, Universal Pictures' musical Idlewild, ?bowed in fifth place with an estimated $2.08 million, while New Line Cinema's kids movie How to Eat Fried Worms had to settle for 11th place with an estimated $1.25 million. Meanwhile, New Line's Snakes on a Plane, last weekend's top grosser, skidded to the eighth spot with an estimated $1.8 million. Other positions in the top five were filled by Sony Pictures' Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, in third place with an estimated $2.5 million, and Universal's Accepted, in fourth place, with an estimated $2.1 million.

'Invincible' proves no underdog

'Invincible' proves no underdog
Although its performance wasn't quite as powerful as the film's title, Buena Vista Pictures' Invincible did come out fighting, leading the pack during the weekend with an estimated $17 million gross at the North American boxoffice. The same cannot be said for the weekend's other new releases. Warner Bros. Pictures' R-rated Beerfest opened to an estimated $6.5 million, good for fourth place, and New Line Cinema's How to Eat Fried Worms proved hard for moviegoers to digest as it placed outside the top 10, in the No. 12 spot, with an estimated $4 million. Universal Pictures' musical Idlewild opened in the eighth spot with an estimated $5.9 million. The total was not as high as had been expected, but with the best per-theater average of the new arrivals ($6,055), it notched a respectable beginning for the OutKast-led musical that attracted a predominantly black audience.
