Lone Ranger also was a popular cartoon show during the 80's. And, here's an image of another white man playing an AMerican Indian: Pierre Briece as Winnetou...

JUNE 28 B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: Not to rub it in for Oiram and his inexplicable animosity toward THE HEAT, but here's the LINK to read the L.A. Times current Movie Projector column, predicting HEAT and WHITE HOUSE DOWN in a neck-and-neck race...for 2nd place. Even with a 50% drop-off (which is historically unlikely) the Times expects 1st place to go to Pixar's MONSTERS UNIVERSITY. 

We'll know by mid-day Sunday how right (or wrong) they were...

Joe: At least you tried... Could you describe what you saw and what it seemed the film/scene was about?

An attempt was made, but 30 LAPD officers formed a ring around the shooting area. Cry

4th of JULY B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: The L.A. Times (the "Capitol I Industry's" hometown newspaper of record) has come out with their Movie Projector column covering the coming 4th of July weekend, and they have good news for the makers of DESPICABLE ME, TOO (which they predict will come out #1, easily topping $100 million) and bad news for Dizz-Knee, whose LONE RANGER they tag as a "dud" (with a predicted take of $70 million -- $10 million more than RANGER's own studio is prognosticating). In further bad news for the $225 million remake of a 1981 Worst Picture nominee, as of this posting (late Tuesday night, Idaho time) RANGER was stalled at 25% Positive at Rotten Tomatoes. 

Here's the LINK to read the complete L.A. Times Box Office article...

FUN B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: Today's Los Angeles Times ran a front-page article about a trend that has Hollywood both mystified...and terrified: At more than twice the usual rate, tiny "niche" films are taking on mega-budget "tent-pole" titles and repeatedly taking the box office crown, while their bloated-budget brethren are tanking. In the subscriber/online edition, they even included a chart with examples of both tiny movies that did well (topped by PURGE, which cost less than $4 million and has grossed nearly $65m) and big budget box office bombs (like LONE RANGER, which has barely topped $75 million in grosses and cost about $225m). 

Here's the LINK to read the article. For some odd reason, the version that's linkable is illustrated with a still from...SHARKNADO(??).

STILL YET EVEN MORE FUN: The online L.A. Times also seems to be impatient to declare a certain actor's career to be in crisis -- The other big movie-related article this morning is headlined: RYAN REYNOLDS' BOX OFFICE WEEKEND: BOMBS AWAY! The assumptions and projections it makes are based only on...Friday matinee estimates(!) 

Here's the LINK for that one.

Does that include Turbo, the DreamWorks Animation film with the VOICE of Ryan Reynolds? 


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Yes...In fact, the article is illustrated w/an image from TURBO. 


Pictures move, do they?

FUN B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: Once again suggesting that Hollywood is both confused and mystified by audiences' response to this summer's slate of "tent-pole" movies, today's L.A. Times has another article trying to decipher why the big budget movies are tanking and the tiny titles are titans at the B.O. 

But they undermine their credibility with their headline -- Here's the LINK to read that headline (and the entire article)...

JULY 26th B.O. UPDATE from HeadRAZZberry: This week's L.A. Times "Movie Projector" column is out, and it's hardly news to anyone even vaguely familiar with movie-going trends -- They're touting WOLVERINE as the  weekend's likely #1 movie, with the potential to reach $80 million by end-of-business Sunday. The article also implies that someone over at Fox called the Times with a complaint: An earlier version of the article suggested WOLVERINE cost $200 million to make, and a note has been added by the Times' editors to "clarify" that its budget was more like $120 million. $80 million here, $80 million there...eventually, it adds up to real money!

AUGUST 2nd B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: This week's L.A. Times "Movie Projector" column is predicting that the Denzel Washington/Mark Wahlberg action/comedy 2 GUNS will take the top spot, collecting around $30 million -- and likely leaving our Worst of the Weak selection SMURFS 2 "feeling blue" (the Times' choice of phrase, not ours).

AUGUST 9th B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry:  This week's "Movie Projector" column has posted at the L.A. Times' website. They're predicting ELYSIUM, with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster (who's gotten some really RAZZ-able reviews!) will top the Dizz-Knee 'toon PLANES (which was actually made for home video and is getting theatrical release as an afterthought). Despite rotten reviews at RT, I think PLANES may soar to a slightly better final number than ELYSIUM (this summer's 37th overblown/bloated budget sci-fi title). They also expect our Worst of the Weak pick WE'RE THE MILLERS to easily make the top five (maybe even the top three) and they foresee HARRY POTTER Wanna-Be PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS only doing so-so biz.

UPDATE from Head RAZZberry - SUMMER B.O. SUMMARY: With summer 2013 almost over, Hollywood is scratching its head trying to figure out what "message" movie-goers' utterly unpredictable choices meant to send them. And the L.A. Times is doing its part by trying to decipher the tea leaves: Their latest article on the subject aks what it means that ELYSIUM was last weekend's #1 movie -- but with a piddling $30 million gross when it had been predicted to top $40 million. 

We think the "message" is abundantly clear: With few exceptions, American audiences are finally saying "Enough already!" Predictable pablum and so-called "tent-pole" titles like AFTER EARTH and LONE RANGER collapsed in on themselves weekend after weekend all summer, unexpected low budget hits like THE CONJURING and THE PURGE rang up major ticket sales, and nothing is a sure thing any more. So the Industry is, understandably, terrified.

I feel kind of sorry for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Greek Mythology is really interesting, and I liked the cherry picked scenes and info they used in the first film. Now, the 2nd Percy has opened in 4th place at the box office with only 14.4 Million dollars. Even that Disney embarrassment Planes beat it with it's 3rd place finish! 
If you care to find me, Look to the Western Sky :)

AUGUST 16 B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: Today's L.A. Times "Movie Projector" column is calling this weekend's B.O. battle between multiple new titles a potential showdown between likely Oscar contender THE BUTLER and potential RAZZIE® contender KICK ASS 2. Each of them is predicted to take in something between $20-$25 million. Their sense of JOBS' potential is less impressive: The Ashton Kutcher biopic of Apple's founder is predicted to come in closer to $10 million. But the B.O. Bomb of the Week dis-stink-tion goes to the movie that could replace GROWN UPS #2 as the Worst Reviewed Movie of the Season at RT: PARANOIA.

AUGUST 23 B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: This week's L.A. Times' "Movie Projector" column is predicting a 2nd weekend atop the B.O. chart for Lee Daniels' THE BUTLER, with the debuting MORTAL INSTRUMENTS film adding bad B.O. to its already poor reviews to rank as another 2013 "disappointment." In fact, they're suggesting MORTAL, the new Simon Pegg pub-crawling comedy WORLD'S END and horror flick YOU'RE NEXT will end up bunched close together to rank second, third and fourth (though they're not saying which title will end up where by Sunday).

AUGUST 30 B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: For the last, L-O-N-G Weekend of Summer 2013, the L.A. Times is predicting young girls (rather than the usual teen-aged boys) will rule the box office -- They're predicting ONE DIRECTION: THIS IS US will top THE BUTLER and take the B.O. Crown for Labor Day. Much as we hate to admit it, the Bubble Gum Idol Documentary does have surprisingly good numbers at Rotten Tomatoes (LINK). 

But they're also saying our Worst of the Weak pick GETAWAY won't get away with placing any higher than 3rd, and they describe its prospects as "dismal."

B.O. UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: This morning's L.A. Times has an interesting, lengthy article discussing the results of this summer's box office. Surprisingly, given the crappy quality of 2013's summer product, both attendance and grosses were up from last year. The article also offers"five lessons" Hollywood can learn from analyzing the numbers. Unfortunately, most of the biggest grossers were sequels, remakes and the like, so any lessons regardging originality are likely to go unlearned...
