    Weekend Box Office: 'Transformers 3' Obliterates 4th Of July Weekend Record

    But Underperforms Domestically Over 5 Days, 'Larry Crowne' Can't Get Out Of First GearThere's astronomically good and slightly bad to report as the sequel to a less-than-critically-loved-blockbuster-created-solely-to-move-toys hit the marketplace. Michael Bay's “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” underperformed domestically compared to its predecessor. It grossed $97.4 million in its Friday to Sunday opening box-office weekend, compared to the $108 million "Transformers:Revenge of the Fallen" accumulated in 2009 without the aid of inflated 3D ticket surcharges (and yet, it's won the top-grossing weekend of 2011 so far). But an overseas bonanza d...

    This Will Go Over Well, We're Sure: Michael Bay Writes To Theater Projectionists

    We'd always assumed the humble projectionist had next-to-no contact with the people who actually made the movies, but recent weeks have shown that that's not true at all; the recent disclosure that Terrence Malick had personally written to theaters across the country with certain specifications for "The Tree of Life" has unleashed a sea of similar memos, including Stanley Kubrick on "Barry Lyndon" and David Lynch on "Mulholland Drive." And it's not surprising, considering that all filmmakers worth their salt would want their film to be displayed in the best possible manner. The latest to join th...

    'Transformers 3' Moves Up Two Days To June 29th, Because That Extra 48 Hours Would Have Been Agony
