It’s the week of Watchmen here at the Reject Report! That’s right, the most highly-anticipated movie of 2009 — at least, among the comic-book geeks — is finally upon us with Watchmen, based on the celebrated limited series comic book of the same name.
Well, once again I look dumb here at the Reject Report, and it’s all because of the Jonas Brothers. You know that Jonas Brothers movie that I had picked to win the weekend? Turned out it was Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail that won the weekend with $16.5 million dollars.
I’m not surprised that a Tyler Perry movie did well at the box office. I’m not surprised it finished in first place. I wouldn’t even have been shocked with a haul of $30 or $35 million dollars. But $41 million dollars?
Well, you might say that we’re all “Fired Up” about this weekend’s movies at The Reject Report. Uh, no. Actually, this looks to be a down week, with only two major wide releases served up by the folks from MAXIM and, ahem, Tyler Perry.
Kevin waxes poetic about how awesome it is to watch cheerleader movies while both of them complain about how they never get to see Tyler Perry movies in advance. Also, Kevin promises drastic consequences if WALL-E doesn’t win Best Animated Film.
