Will Smith Movie Pursuit of Happyness Wins At Box Office – Movie Review Chronicles Story Of Chris Gardner and Son

Will Smith Movie Pursuit of Happyness Wins At Box Office – Chronicles Story Of Chris Gardner and Son

Will and Son

The “Pursuit of Happyness” won-out at the box office over the weekend bringing in over $27 million. Will Smith stars as San Francisco homeless man turned successful businessman Chris Gardner. The hugely successful actor helped produce one of the most heart-wrenching Horatio Alger stories ever told.

Chris Gardner was a down and out business person in the 1980’s who struggled with success selling overpriced bone-density scanners, and then lost his wife, car and apartment. Smith’s character overcame these adversities to become a multimillionaire. One touching moment in the film includes Smith and his son spending the night locked in the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) because they had no place else to stay.

One turning point for Gardner (played by Smith) was when he came across a man getting out of a Ferrari. Smith was compelled to ask the man what he did for a living. “I am a stock broker for Dean Witter”, the man replied. The movie chronicles Gardner’s ladder to success, including an internship with the brokerage firm.

Box Office Totals - Apocalypto Beats The Holiday - Mel Gibson Film Wins Weekend

Box Office Totals - Apocalypto Beats The Holiday - Mel Gibson Film Wins Weekend

Apocalypto

The Mel Gibson film, “Apocalypto” beat-out the romantic comedy “The Holiday” over the weekend in box office receipts according to preliminary studio estimates issued Sunday. The movie attracted a 60 percent male audience and averaged $5,747 per seat in 2,465 locations.

Evidently the drunken driving arrest of Mel Gibson did not dampen the sales of his movie. At his arrest, the actor / director spewed out anti-Jewish remarks that he later apologized for.

The Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Jack Black and Kate Winslet movie, “The Holiday”, could not thump the violent “Apocalypto” which includes images of beheadings and hearts ripped from people's chests.

The new Hugh Jackson movie, “The Fountain” is about a man (Jackson) who searches for a way to save the woman he loves, played by Rachel Weisz, by traveling through time. The plot spans 1,000 years with three parallel stories, and is considered an action-drama-romance-science-fiction movie.

Brad Pitt was originally slated to play Jackson’s role, but later dropped out. This and funding cuts caused many involved in the project to lose faith according to Jason Villemez of the Celebrity Café. With all of the problem concerning the production, Director Darren Aronofsky was able to pull the assignment together.

Aronofsky told a pre-screening audience in Boston "For those of you here to see Requiem for a Dream part II, go home, this is not it." Aronofsky also directed the surreal movies “Pi” and “Requiem for a Dream”.

Borat Movie Prompts Lawsuits and Confusion Over Russian Release – Government Says Studio Never Applied For Permit – Sacha Cohen

Cohen - right

Few movies have stirred as much controversy as the new Sacha Baron Cohen film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. There are lawsuits. The Russians have banned the film (see below). But nearly everyone who has seen it agrees it is funny.

Borat grossed over $26 million even though it was released to a limited number of theaters. The plot involves a racist post-Soviet reporter who travels across America. Cohen interviews various people who are unaware that the Russian is not really who he says he is. He isn’t even Russian, he is British.
