IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Weekend Wrap-Up (05/06/2013)

Our busiest news weekend in a while so, since we don't have much room on this sheet of paper, I'll get right to it.

Iron Man 3 Storms The US Box Office
Iron Man 3 Storms The US Box Office

Only one movie has ever crossed the $200 million mark in its opening weekend and that was The Avengers, the ensemble superhero flick toplined by Iron Man.  That still remains as the only film to cross that mark but now Iron Man 3 has come the closest with a staggering $175 million+ 3 day estimate.  I'm starting to think that Tony Stark is just forking out his millions himseld...Read More.

Luke Evans Is The New Crow

Yes, we skipped a week of the Weekend Wrap-Up and the last one we posted, we reported on the rumor of Tom Hiddleston possibly donning the Crow makeup.  Well, big surprise, that ended up falling through just like the 4 or 5 other actors that were attached before him, going back to Bradley Cooper, who was so far in, they were nearing a shoot.  Now, Luke Evans, soon to be seen in Fast & Furious 6, has officially signed on to star in the remake.  We'll see if this one sticks, I'll believe it when I see shots of him in full costume...Read More.

Justin Timberlake Reveals '20/20 Experience' Part 2 Due September 30

Another piece of news we previously reported on.  Back in March, Questlove revealed that Timberlake would be released Part 2 of his "20/20 Experience" in November, surprising news at the time since nobody even knew it was a 2 part effort and it has been about 20 years between Timberlake's previous two albums.  With the wind out of his sales, Timberlake announced on Twitter that his new album is coming, with the only surprise left is that it's coming earlier on September 30...Read More.

'Amazing Race' Season 22 Winners Revealed
The perennial "Best Reality Show" Emmy winner ended its 22nd (!!) season this weekend by revealing the winning team.  I can't really say much more unless you want a spoiler and if you want a spoiler...Read More.

'21 Jump Street 2', 'Men in Black 4' in Development at Sony
'21 Jump Street 2', 'Men in Black 4' in Development at Sony
Men in Black 3 was the lowest grossing of the series...in the U.S.  Worldwide, it was the highest grossing of the series.  The movie received bad reviews and it seemed like they dodged a bullet.  So what do they do?  Make another!  Why not.  Keep milking it until it loses money, that seems like the way to go.  On the other hand, '21 Jump Street' ended up being a critical and box office surprise so this one makes sense.  'Jump Street' will come first and then 'Men in Black 4" since Sony has hired the same writer...Read More.
