Week ending 8/12/14- "Again. With cash to burn."
Another week and another number one spot for those teens trying to bring down the evil dudes in Westeros.....wait, that seems wrong.
Well whatever, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 cut apart the competition with $3.03 million in week 3 and a total of $25.73 million overall.
It was too much for debut epic Exodus: Gods and Kings which grossed $2.685 million, which was only enough for the number 2 slot.
Alexander and the horribly long unpronounceable title (pictured), had a pretty good opening as well, but with the might of The Hunger Games above, $1.183 million was only ever going to be good enough for 3rd place.
Elsewhere the rest of the box office was down and struggling with the bottom 5 movies on the top ten list, unable to crack the $300,000 mark. Despite that, among those flicks there is one that must be highlighted.
Gone Girl has had one of the longest stints in the top ten of any film this year.
After 10 weeks in release it is still maintaining a grip on the middle of the pack, and has now raked in a very respectiable $26.429 million. Not bad for a deep, insightful, gut wrenching drama!
Website Updates *new info*
The following site updates will be happening soon (hopefully I will be able to keep to the schedule below!):
ONE: Due to the significant lack of time I have at the moment the remaining Sunday Arvos podcast's (ie. one's that are missing from the list) will probably not be updated and released onto this site. To be fair, there aren't a whole lot left to be uploaded and due to the time constraints it really isn't worth it at the moment. If enough people request the missing eps added I will but what is there is it for now.
TWO: The History of Film Series will be updated shortly. I'm annoyed that I haven't given it the time it deserves. Part 12 will be up very soon and I'm hoping to have a lot more added in the coming weeks.
THREE: The Rocket Show and The Peanut Gallery Podcasts have taken a lot longer to organise than I thought they would. I've had a lot of requests for new Rocket Show podcasts especially, so I'm hoping a couple of new ones will be uploaded by the end of November 2014. Please keep hassling me as many of you have (via the contact page, not in person at the beach or anything like that), and I will try my hardest to get them on here.
Marshall on the TV
Yes, it's true. Someone allowed Marshall to appear on the TV Box.
A couple of weeks ago James Tinniswood and that handsome stranger to the left there, sat down with Alana Shootingstar and Scott Black on "The Late Nite Show, with Scott Black", on 31 Digital, (the old Briz 31 Channel).
The topic of discussion moved from Marshall's start in comedy, to live biscuit reviews, a new movie review show starring Marshall and James, and the fact that local Brisbane comedian Steven J Whiteley is a dark wizard.
Now, that episode (Season 3, Ep 13) is up on the Tube of You, and you can check that out at the official "Late Nite Show" You Tube Channel. Or, if you dare, you can see Marshall's segment right below on this very site.
PODCAST 23 - Who Asked Sunday Arvos??
The answer is, they did. Now available on the Podcasts page is when the Who Asked You Show from Las Vegas, NV in the US of A, was the special guest on Sunday Afternoons.
Expect a lot of movie talk, a lot of discussion about how far behind Australian movie releases are and a whole lot more of everything else.
And to check out Marshall's appearance on the Who Asked You Show, check out their website or the itunes link right here....
And for a special blooper behind the scenes peak see below.......
Who Asked Sunday Arvos - Sneak peak/blooper.......
Check out the clip below for a peak behind the scenes of the Who Asked Sunday Arvos special cross over event.
This blooper was the result of an on-going discussion about the appropriateness (or lack thereof) of a new DVD to be released "The Vietnam War in HD".
Charlie and Jabari were giving their version of what the DVD commentary would be, until it ran over time.....Marshall kept recording anyway......
The name says what it is about....
Make sure to check out this great web series hosted by Jerry Seinfeld and featuring some amazing comedians. Really funny and they are only 12 mins long. How easy is that.
All the eps are now available, episode 2 is the pick of the bunch with Ricky Gervais, also really worth a look is the last episode with Michael Richards but they are all good. Check it out at crackle.com or at comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com. Or just click on the big picture above....
