Guys vs. Girls. vs. Nerds…

It was the ultimate ‘battle f the bands’ weekend between Expendables, Eat, Pray, Love, and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. The testosterone injected, über action romp, spear-headed by Sly Stallone KO’d the competition. Surprisingly, its appeal wasn’t just to guys either with 44% of viewers being females. The rest of the ladies went to see Julia Roberts Eat, Pray, Love. Even though it opened to poor reviews, America’s previous ‘sweetheart’ still seems to have enough appeal to bring in $24 million. The big disappointment of the weekend was the poor performance from Scott Pilgrim. Even though winning over critics, the graphic novel based movie barely had enough nerd support to cross the $10 million marker (budgeted at $60). It’s only hope is that positive word of mouth in the weeks to come will translate to more $. Inception comes back strong in its 5th week, proving that it is still one of the best movies of the year. Nothing big opening this weeks so it will be interesting to see how these movies do in week 2.

      Agreed! Scott Pilgrim was one of the best movies of the year so far. People got enticed by the star power of the other movies. Go see it people!!!
