Expendables Box Office And The Next Three Days

  • Two things will be coming your way: (1) a look at how The Expendables did at the box office, and (2) a look at the new trailer for The Next Three Days starring Russel Crowe.

    Male testosterone trumps the weekend box office (thank God), giving classic action movies a modern comeback. The Expendables opened up with $35,030,000 (Box Office Mojo), leaving (what I thought would be its biggest competition) Scott Pilgrim vs. The World down in the dumps, which made $10,525,000.

    There was a bit of fear creeping up on me, that The Expendables would not appeal to a big enough audience -- especially since the attention was around stars not a lot of teens and young adults would recognize or care for. Alas, I was wrong, and -- for once in my life -- glad I was. The general public did not let me down, and it looks as though we may be able to get us a sequel (Chuck Norris, Jean Claude, Mel Gibson, Steven Seagal, and Michael Dudikoff anyone?).

    I intend to view Sylvester Stalone, and many former 80s/90s action stars, f*** some people up and get my blood boiling some time in the morrow. I may put up a review, so stick around folks.

    Let us move onto a new trailer I stumbled upon tonight at JoBlo, for The Next Three Days. A cast with the likes of Liam Neeson (enough said), Russel Crowe, Olivia Wilde, and Elizabeth Banks is intriguing enough to garner my attention. After viewing the trailer, my interest has fully been sparked.

    The full synopsis, according to Yahoo, is as follows:
    Life seems perfect for John Brennan until his wife, Lara, is arrested for a gruesome murder she says she didn't commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately risking everything for the woman he loves.
    This is the Russel Crowe I like to see. Enjoy!

    There are some interesting closing dates on this article but I don’t know if I see all of them heart to heart. There’s some validity but I’ll take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as nicely

    It is hypothesized that some wolves gathered around the campsites of paleolithic camps to scavenge refuse, and associated evolutionary pressure developed that favored those who were less frightened by, and keener in approaching, humans.

    Modern dog breeds show more variation in size, appearance, and behavior than any other domestic animal. Nevertheless, their morphology is based on that of their wild ancestors, gray wolves.

    A box office is a place where tickets are sold to the public for admission to an event. Patrons may perform the transaction at a countertop, through an unblocked hole through a wall or window, or at a wicket.

    This was a really outstanding post. In theory I'd like to compose like this too - taking time and real effort to make a solid article...
