'Iron Man 3' rockets its way to second-best opening ever It wasn't as big as "The Avengers" but it did beat "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2." It would be "Iron Man 3" with a box office haul of $175 million. It completely dwarfed the competition. In the Media by Tim O'Brien

Midnight movie showings exposed
Note: De Kalb County and Iowa made "At Any Price" opens wider this weekend and buzz is gone...opened in Northbrook, Chicago and Evanston May 3 and now in De Kalb on May 10 (MARKET SQUARE CINEMA 10). Minneapolis as well (LAGOON THEATRE 5)...finally in Newton, IA, where race scenes were filmed on May 31 (CAPITOL 2) .."Troll" was to roll out production in Rock Island but was pulled due to lack of funding.. 'gatsby' not great; let's just go with good
If "visually stunning" is used and "vibrant" for a movie, look out, it means we are looking for something to like in a movie. On that note, "The Great Gatsby" is a visually stunning and vibrant adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel. But, Hollywood has never been able to get this right, ever. No, not even with Robert Redford. Now they try with Leonardo DiCaprio. Let's just go with "The Good Gatsby" on this attempt.
Head's up.."At Any Price" is not just a simple drama about a farmer and his son who wants to be a race car driver..The drama is of a farm attacked by a biotech corporation ...this multinational biotech company thinks he patented their crops in his field,...that is the real film...ie thinly disguised Monsanto....is it a fine drama but Dennis Quaid is no hero here. He is an unlikable character ..if you have family or know someone who grows and makes a living from those firms -- which is many for us who grew up in De Kalb, (the flying ear of corn) -- you may be offended... it it big farm vs smaller guy..a familiar Hollywood premise...
