Parental Guidance: “… should hold up nicely in the new year”

EW
Box office report: ‘The Hobbit’ outdraws ‘Django’ and ‘Les Mis’ with $32.9 million
December 31, 2012



Despite the arrival of two holiday heavyweights, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” retained the top spot at the box office for the third weekend in a row.

Warner Bros.’ $250 million fantasy prequel was held out of the top spot from Tuesday until Thursday by “Les Miserables,” but over the traditional weekend frame “Hobbit” dipped only 11 percent to bring in $32.9 million, and its domestic total now stands tall at $222.7 million. After 17 days, “The Hobbit” is performing well ahead of 2001′s “The Fellowship of the Ring,” which had earned $189.3 million at the same point in its run (though that number climbs to about $260 million after accounting for inflation), but it still trails the 17-day cumes of “The Two Towers” ($243.6 million), and “The Return of the King” ($272.8 million). Notably, those films did not have 3D or IMAX surcharges boosting their totals. Read More

BetteBack 1976: Bette’s Special Will Be Taped; Censors Worried About Off Color Language…LOL (September 14, 1976)

Lowell Sun

NBC has tapped Bette Midler for her first special later this season. It will be taped, of course, since Miss Midler has been known to get off some colorful language in her “live” performances.

Parental Guidance: “This could be a film that holds on as a general audience alternative for the next few weeks.”

IndieWire
Boffo Four-Day Holiday Box Office, Led by ‘The Hobbit,’ ‘Django Unchained’ & ‘Les Miserables,’ Rings Out Record Year
BY TOM BRUEGGEMANN
DECEMBER 29, 2012 4:10 PM

It’s an embarrassment of riches. The days following Christmas have been a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs in grosses. On Friday, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” repeated the #1 spot it regained on Thursday, but “Django Unchained” climbed ahead of “Les Miserables” for #2, with the latter falling to #3 narrowly after leading all films on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thus the ranking has been different each of the last four days, which is unheard of most of the time, but does occur during the intense holiday playtime as major hits sort themselves out and word of mouth takes hold. See Top Ten Chart below. Read More

“Parental Guidance” Keeping “Jack Reacher” At Bay

Showbiz 411
“Jack Reacher” Beaten by “Parental Guidance” Again, And It’s Easy to See Why
12/29/12 3:19am
Roger Friedman

The moment finally came last night. While my family was in seeing “Parental Guidance,” I sneaked next door and caught “Jack Reacher” at last. OMG, as the kids say these days. What was Tom Cruise thinking? “Jack Reacher” is losing box office daily to four other movies including the Bette Midler-Billy Crystal-Marisa Tomei flick and I can see why. “Reacher” is a befuddlement. It’s not exactly Tom Cruise’s fault, either. He is a fine actor–witness Jerry Maguire, Born on the Fourth of July, Magnolia. Read More

“But, you know what, I did make it, so good for me…!!!

Columbus Dispatch
Comedy puts Midler back on big screen
By Ian Spelling
NEW YORK TIMES SYNDICATE Thursday December 27, 2012 7:08 AM

One day not too long ago, Bette Midler and Whoopi Goldberg sat down to chat.

“Whoopi said, ‘I don’t think I would have made it in this day and age,’  ” Midler recalls. “I said, ‘Please, you? What about me?’  ”

She shrugs.

“It’s a very, very different world,” she says. “It’s, in a funny way, like what movies used to be, when movies were only about gods and goddesses. You had to have this kind of a face and this kind of a voice.” Read More
