BOX OFFICE: ‘Jackass Forever After’ surely a go

Posted by · 5:30 pm · October 17th, 2010

I’ve been at a friend’s house watching the games all afternoon, so, slow to get this up this weekend.  Anyway, we can bet on more poop shenanigans after this monster opening for “Jackass 3D.” I can’t remember what “Life As We Know It” is every time I look at the title, by the way.

    I’ll be catching ‘Red’ tomorrow wth a few friends. I’ll prob wait for ‘Jackass 3D’ til dvd, though.

    I DID see ‘Nowhere Boy’, though:

    Wow, surprisingly great.

    Very interesting story on John Lennon’s pre-adulthood (age 13-18 or so).

    Stellar technical components (McGarvey’s cinematography, sets, costumes, hair, sound).

    And the acting: just superb. The script really gave Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas, & Anne-Marie Duff a lot to sink their teeth into. Oh, and Thomas Sangster was also excellent as a young Paul McCartney.

    I was just throughly surprised. It’s a small film in scale, only about 95 minutes. But the people in my audience were saying things like “wow, it could have been longer”. You don’t often hear that.

    I highly recommend people get to whichever theater is showing this nearby and check it out. Nothing extraordinary, but QUITE good.

    Looks like that ‘Son of Jackass’ routine from the first film is going to be more prophetic than we all thought.

    Jackass 3D got my $17 and it’s the one and only time I ever plan on wearing those insufferable glasses.

    Hubble 3D was breathtaking Chad.

    $17?! Dude, there ARE theaters out there you don’t have to empty your whole wallet for. Nice ones too. I would never pay that much for a movie, and especially not for “Jackass.”

    Not that I’m rich or anything but I don’t really care how much movies cost. If I want to see it then I’m happy to give the filmmakers my money.

    Kris, I feel the same way about Life As We Know It. I know the girl from Knocked Up is in it. I’m surprised it got to #1 in it’s opening weekend!

    Jackass 3-D was AWESOME! Chad, I only paid $14, but I saw it today at 2:30 on a mildly crowded day, maybe that has something to do with it, idk.

    Btw, is it me or does anyone else have a feeling that Johnny Knoxville absolutely dreads making these movies.

    I would go see Jackass, but I can’t find a non-3D screening anywhere, so I will wait for DVD.

    al b. – I would agree with that. If his acting career had taken off, he would not return to the series.

    Chad is pathetic. Wasting 17 bucks on moronic trash like Jackass before seeing Avatar in 3D. What a joke.

    I think the real news here is Secretariat’s 25% drop. That’s pretty much unheard of and means the movie has legs (no pun intended).

    Just got back from seeing it and it really is quite good. Certainly not the best thing i’ve seen but Diane Lane is quite impressive. The movie rests on her shoulders and she handles it perfectly.

    It didn’t. “The Social Network” was #1 that weekend (its second).

    $17 for any movie is an insane price. For a price like that I’d expect to get a blowjob too.

    I pretty much never go to movies on weekends, and weekdays I can go for about half off. Can’t remember the last time I paid anything more than $6-7 for a movie, even in 3D.

    “I feel the same way about Life As We Know It. I know the girl from Knocked Up is in it. ”

    She has a name… Her name is Katherine Heigl just so you know.. She was also in Grey’s Anatomy…

    Speaking English: thank you, you’re correct.

    rizza: I know who she is, I was just making a joke, I apologize if I offended you at all.

    I caught Catfish this week. I liked it. Interesting and funny and sad.

    An amazing hold for Secretariat, and another fantastic one for The Social Network!!!

    Will be seeing Jackass tomorrow.

    ekend for a couple of bigger films.

    Read this on another site:
    “First, Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter won the per theater crown this weekend with $231,000 from six theaters ($38,500 per), but Tony Goldwyn’s Conviction (my review) wasn’t as lucky with only $110,000 from 11 theaters ($10,000 per).”

    al b: Oh not at all.. I thought you really didn’t know her name.. My apologies if I sounded a too tacky…

    I bet we both agree that her movie “Life As We Know It” was not so good..

    “Red” opened pretty strongly. I might check it out next week, thought I’m looking forward to “The Company Men.”

    If there was 3D penis POV in Avatar, I would have definitely seen it.

    the joke is that Avatar is actually considered a masterpiece by anyone outside of stoner college students and loners who hang out on IMDB’s message boards.

  • 22 10-18-2010 at 5:27 am

    JJ1 said...

    Angry Shark, and 58 yr. old dads (like mine) who called it a good kid’s movie.

    But overall, I agree with you, haha.

    I contributed $7.50 to Nowhere Boy. Agree with JJ1 – maybe not on the acting (not much for anyone to do, and Aaron Johnson was not consistently great for the entire movie), and certainly not on the kid who played Paul McCartney. But a surprisingly engaging and emotionally powerful story. Started out slow, but ended with a bang. I also liked the mystery elements.

    Kyle said...

    I agree with most of the sentiments about Nowhere Boy, saw it this weekend as well. Though the dubbing of the singing was quite bad, especially Thomas Sangster’s…it really pulled you out of the movie with how fake it looked. But Aaron Johnson and Kristin Scott Thomas were great, who knew John Lennon was such an @$$hole?
    I also enjoyed that Nowhere Boy ended where Backbeat began basically, nice touch in the scripting.

    I’m very impressed by the Jackass opening and the Secretariat hold. I caught Hereafter and RED in theatres this weekend and Monsters on VOD.

    I liked Hereafter and Monsters, certainly weren’t perfect films (in both cases the script was probably the biggest problem) but I feel worth checking out. I didn’t care for RED at all.

    JJ1 said...

    It’s funny: the reviews are solid and $22.5 million is great, and yet, I keep hearing more & more mediocre/poor reactions to Red. Seeing it today.

    Those Jackass guys seem too old to still be playing those roles.

    If you’ve seen Jackass 3D yet you’d realize it’s the last one. The ending montage featuring old videos of the guys when they were young is actually a little touching.

    Chad Hartigan said...

    tony rock- I’m pretty sure the end of Rocky V did the same thing

    Liked Red. It’s wacky, preposterous plot was a bit much, at times. But I definitely had fun. Everyone in the cast has their moments. And people in my theater were cracking up. Solid 7-7.5/10 for me.

  • 31 10-18-2010 at 2:22 pm

    tony rock said...

    Chad…true, and after a 50mil OW I can definitely see the studio wanting another. However, I got the feeling that these guys kinda know they’re getting too old for it, hence the slightly less dangerous antics this time around.

    MovieMan said...

    “Jackass 3D” is one of the worst films of the year.

    And Chad, there was a detached 3D penis in “Piranha.”

    “Chad Hartigan said…

    Eight year olds, dude. Eight year olds.

    And as for the movie itself. Wouldn’t go see it for free.

    Whereas Avatar was truly one of the all time great theatrical expereinces.
