Is strange seeing people and journalists telling people to leave ‘Seven Sharp’ alone and give it time. Whatever, it sucks. And people know this and will say so. The show is just what Paul Holmes wrought. Infotainment based in personality bollocks. And there is just too much happening in NZ at the moment for TVNZ to try to get away with slipping this fluffy horseshit on air.
Wow. Brutal. And not any punctuation. They have another story – ‘Inside the movie house of Horror’. Skipped that one but this article itself is just as bad……
The Dark Knight Rises was on track to earn US$160 million (NZ$200m), which would be a record for 2-D films, over the weekend following a mass shooting at a Colorado screening of the Batman film.
Citing box office insiders, The Hollywood Reporter, Los Angeles Times, New York Times and other media outlets reported on Sunday (local time) that the latest Batman sequel earned US$160 to $162 million.
That amount would best the US$158.4 million debut of The Dark Knight in 2008 and give Dark Knight Rises the third-highest domestic weekend opening ever after the 3-D films The Avengers with US$207.4 million and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 with US$169.2 million.
Tickets for 3-D films cost a few more dollars than 2-D screenings, netting extra cash at the box office. Movies released in 3-D typically earn under half of their income in 3-D screenings, sometimes as little as a third.
I shall NOT supply the link. Fucking awful reporting.
Still no villain with the start date rapidly approaching. They will have to take anyone with a pulse who accepts the role soon. Oh, that is happening now. Just cancel the doomed piece of shit NOW.
Variety reports that Sharlto Copley (District 9, The A-Team) has been offered the role of the villainous billionaire in Old Boy. If accepted, Copley would be taking a part that has had some pretty big names previously attached to it, including Clive Owen, Colin Firth and Christian Bale.
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry spent a lengthy chunk of her Saturday show on one of the things that has troubled her most in the past year: the success of the film “The Help.”
The movie, about black maids in the Jim Crow South and the white woman who writes a book about them, is set to clean up at the Oscars on Sunday night, with actresses Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer both favored to take home awards. But “The Help” has caused controversy almost from the moment it was released, setting off an intense dialogue about its portrayal of race and racism.
Harris-Perry was one of a chorus of voices speaking out against the film when it was released last August. She went on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show, where she called it “deeply troubling,” and even live-tweeted her reactions while she watched it, saying it “reduces violent racism, sexism and labor exploitation to a cat fight that can be won with cunning spunk.”
Well, this will make Dan News very happy. From their Facebook page….
