'Disturbia' tops slow frame as 'Spidey 3' looms

30 April 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The North American boxoffice appeared to be marking time during the weekend as if waiting for Friday's expected blowout, when Sony Pictures' Spider-Man 3 comes knocking. None of a weak array of new arrivals managed to break through the $10 million barrier, so the teen thriller Disturbia remained king of the hill for the third frame in a row.

Of the newcomers, Buena Vista Pictures' The Invisible, tapping into the same younger audience as Disturbia, ranked second overall with an estimated $7.6 million. The Nicolas Cage sci-fi thriller Next, from Paramount Pictures and Revolution Studios, had to settle for third place and an estimated $7.2 million, while the "Stone Cold" Steve Austin actioner The Condemned, from Lionsgate, entered the list in ninth place with an estimated $4 million. As for the Yari Film Group's Kickin' It Old Skool, starring Jamie Kennedy, it finished outside the top 10 with an estimated $2.8 million.

According to Nielsen EDI, the weekend represented a 23% drop from the comparable weekend last year, when Sony's RV led the pack with $16.4 million. But though the past two weekends have shown steep declines from last year, the spring season, which began March 9 and concludes Thursday, has set record numbers. With $1.231 billion in Hollywood's coffers, this spring is outpacing the record spring of 2004 that took in $1.2 billion. And while that year The Passion of the Christ dominated as the top grosser with $370.3 million, this year the wealth has been spread around a bit more since top grosser 300 has accounted for $207 million.

For Paramount, it was a good news/bad news weekend. The studio's Disturbia, from DreamWorks and Montecito Pictures, ranked first for the third weekend in a row as it fell just 30% while taking in an estimated $9.1 million.

Directed by D.J. Caruso and starring Shia LaBeouf as a housebound teen who suspects a neighbor of murder, the film -- written by Christopher Landon and Carl Ellsworth -- crossed the $50 million mark, hitting an estimated $52.2 million. »

Kennedy is 'Lee'-ward; Jones a cop

22 March 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jamie Kennedy has been tapped to star opposite Lee Majors in Fox's single-camera comedy pilot Me & Lee? while Orlando Jones is set to star in ABC's untitled cop comedy pilot.

Meanwhile, Miguel Ferrer and Chris Bowers have been tapped to co-star in NBC's drama pilot The Bionic Woman, a reimagination of the 1970s series that was a spinoff of Majors' signature series, The Six Million Dollar Man.

Additionally, Barry Bostwick, Kristy Wu and Andre Holland have joined ABC's untitled Ric Swartzlander comedy pilot, and Ben Savage is set as Todd in the untitled Sachs/Judah pilot.

  "Me & Lee?" from Lionsgate, centers on a guy (Kennedy) with chronic back pain who gets more than he bargained for when he undergoes "bionic" back surgery in a secret lab run by actor Lee Majors (playing himself) in the basement of his Beverly Hills mansion. Majors built the lab after becoming obsessed with bionics after "Man" went off the air.

Kennedy next appears in the documentary Heckler, which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival, and in the comedy feature Kickin' It Old Skool. He is repped by CAA, Principato-Young Entertainment and attorney Mitch Smelkinson. »
