    Oprah’s PR Blitz Helps ‘The Butler’ Open #1 With $25M: Soft Box Office As ‘Kick Ass 2′ Falls, ‘Jobs’ Biopic Dies, ‘Paranoia’ Bombs

    Pre-release tracking predicted that Universal’s superhero action-comedy Kick Ass 2 (playing in 2,940 theaters) would be the #1 film this weekend as it made steady gains in key areas with solid interest indicated from younger audiences and males in particular. Instead, it bombed with only $13.6M after looking to open #1 , then #2, then #3 on Friday - trailing the Warner Bros/New Line holdover comedy We’re The Millers. Not even its ‘B+’ CinemaScore could help word of mouth after critics savaged it with only 29% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes because it fell short of the original. Fanboys decided to stay away. I predict debate will rage about whether this sequel based on Mark Millar/John S. Romita’s comic book was necessary. Even the 2010 original’s $19.8M opening was considered dismal, only to make up for it as a hot DVD sale and rental and digital download because of its R-rated irreverence and style. Wrongly, the studio believed “there was a committed fan base that could be activated as a core audience for a sequel,” as a Universal exec emailed me. So the studio handled worldwide distribution for the further adventures of Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse respectively). Vigilante crusader Colonel Stars and Stripes is played by Jim Carrey who kicked up a fuss by proclaiming he wouldn’t promote the film because of its ultra-violence. A few weeks later, he got onboard – but not before generating a ton of bad publicity for the pic. (He didn’t make himself very popular in Hollywood with this stunt. Let’s see if his career continues to crater.) From a screenplay by director Jeff Wadlow, pic also reteamed producers Matthew Vaughn, Adam Bohling, Tarquin Pack and David Reid. It was independently financed for only $28M, then acquired by Universal before production began in September of 2012. Film opens day-and-date in 18 international territories including the United Kingdom, France, and Germany and grossed $6.3M at 1,500 dates
    Shame really, hopefully it will pick up audience when it hits dvd, a little uneven but just as valid as the first one. Jim Carrey was surprisingly good and I can't say enough about Chloe Moretz. Please don't ever go 'Lohan'. If you liked the first one you oughtta see this one.

    So this has Comic Book/Comic Book Movie thread. Introduced my family to the V for Vendetta blu ray as I picked it up from WB a couple of weeks ago for $8.

    They thoroughly enjoyed it and to a woman (three of them) they said it was completely NOT what they expected. I had been trying to say this to them for 3 years ...

    On that note...

    Garth Ennis Returning to The Punisher in 2014 for New Miniseries

    Wonder if it'll be more MAX stuff, or back to the cartoon-y stuff he did with Steve Dillon.

    I'm excited for either.

    The only Ennis work I have read that I just did not enjoy. Maybe it's because Punisher is just so one dimensional that even Ennis can't really do anything 'special' with it.

    Just my opinion...read the first couple MAX trades and I found nothing in them to make them particularly stand out. I blame the character...I don't think it's blasphemy to say that there are limitations attached to Frank Castle...it's not like you can...say...go make a Frankenstein monster out of him.

    Dunno, haha, that series with Bernie Wrightston made him into a supernatural entity.

    It didn't work.
