Weekend Movie Wrap-Up
I really want to go see Tron in 3D. I have yet to see a 3D movie and think this is the one to see! Did you catch the movie over the weekend? What did you think?
The 3-D science fiction film Tron: Legacy, a sequel to 1982’s Tron, opened at the top of the weekend box office. Jeff Bridges returns to the role he played in the original, a videogame developer thrown into a deadly virtual reality known as the Grid. Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde co-star.
Opening in second place was the live-action and animated Yogi Bear, with Dan Aykroyd providing the voice of Yogi and Justin Timberlake voicing his sidekick Boo Boo in the TV cartoon adaptation. Last week’s top film, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, fell to third place.
The critically acclaimed boxing drama The Fighter came in at Number Four after expanding nationwide from limited release. Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale star in the film based on the life of real-life fighter Micky Ward. Amy Adams and Melissa Leo co-star.
The romantic comedy How Do You Know, starring Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd and Jack Nicholson, flopped, debuting weakly in eighth place.
