BOX OFFICE: Noon Numbers Show Act Of Valor #1, Good Deeds #2, Wanderlust #5

FRIDAY 1:30 PM: Based on noon numbers, my sources are estimating today’s and this weekend’s box office as this. Noteworthy: Relativity’s Act Of Valor is blazing based on the Bandito Brothers’ U.S. Navy SEALsfighting force (and using actual SEALs). Relativity acquired the rights to the project last June for $13 million and a $30 million in prints and advertising commitment -the biggest money paid for a finished film with an unknown cast at that time.Lionsgate’s Good Deeds is middling with Tyler Perry not crossdressing as Madea. AndUniversal’s Wanderlust is bombing worse than expected. The combination of Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd proved toxicto moviegoers so far. (FYI: this greenlight was the studio’s payback to director David Wain and producer Judd Apatow.) Also remember that kids on the east Coast are out of school this weekend so family fare like Warner Bros’ Journey 2 will stay strong. Here’s the Top Six right now: 1. Act Of Valor (Relativity) NEW [3,039 Theaters] Est Friday $10M-$12M, Est Weekend $28M-$34M 2. Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds (Lionsgate) NEW [2,132 Theaters] Est Friday $6M-$7M, Est Weekend: $14M-$16M 3. Journey 2 (Warner Bros) Week3 [3,350 Theaters] Est Friday $2.5-$3.0M, Est Weekend $11M-$12M 4. Safe House (Universal) Week 3[3,052 Theaters] Est Friday $3M-$3.5M, Est Weekend $10M-$11M 5. Wanderlust (Universal)NEW [2,002 Theaters] Est Friday $2M-$3M, Est Weekend $6M-$7M 6. Gone (Summit)NEW [2,186 Theaters] Est Friday $1M-$2M, Est Weekend $4M-$5M

Warner Bros. In some way Planning Another I'm Legend for Will Cruz

At some point following a critical and commercial success of his 2007 publish-apocalyptic blockbuster I'm Legend, director Francis Lawrence entertained the idea of returning with star Will Cruz for prequel, but eventually that possibility trailed off and Lawrence casted doubt onto his participation using the potential project. However nowadays Warner Bros. introduced an offer with Akiva Goldsman and Overbrook Entertainment, who've drawn on film writer Arash Amel to create a follow-as much as the $584M hit. Whether it will be a prequel or some kind of direct follow up is unknown, climax apparently being produced for Cruz. Let us speculate away: Precisely how WB may possibly accomplish another installment? Why is the project a curious -- and, frankly, conspicuous -Body may be the means by which Lawrence ended I'm Legend, according to Richard Matheson's 1954 sci-fi novel. [Spoiler alert] Carrying out a global pandemic that destroyed 90% from the world's population, researcher Robert Neville (Cruz) had only discovered a remedy when, in the film's conclusion, he faced an onslaught of mutated vampire-people solo and apparently met their own demise. Obviously WB wants their star and the notoriously potent box office draw to headline another I'm Legend movie. A prequel would explain Smith's presence most easily, but Deadline indicates that will not be. Just how might they bring Cruz back otherwise? Retcon the final scene within the first film, while using alternate ending by which Neville makes grudging peace using the vampire thingies? Maybe the children colony has cloning abilities? Hell, why don't you generate a lengthy-lost twin brother for Neville who grew to become an excellent virologist too - I'm Also Legend? Whatever it works out to become, a minimum of it features a shot at being "among the finest movies available,Inch amirite? Warner Bros Plans More I'm Legend With Will Cruz [Deadline]
