Fee Fi Fo … Flop?

Despite being pretty entertaining, Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer failed to live up to its name, opening with just $28 million to win a sluggish box-office weekend.

Also not setting the world on fire were 21 and Over, which came in third with $9 million (just behind Identity Thief, which earned $9.7 million) and The Last Exorcism Part II, which opened in fourth place with $8 million. The only really good news here was that A Good Day to Die Hard slipped all the way to ninth place with $4.5 million, suggesting even John McClane’s staunchest supporters can’t bring themselves to revisit this awful fifth go-round.

In other news, Kim Nguyen’s Rebelle conquered the Canadian Screen Awards, winning 10 trophies including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay and Best Director.

Called it. People really should listen to me about this stuff.
