When Things Were Rotten

Well, when does 'Gossip Girl' start shooting again? This is so beneath meIt is a truth universally acknowledged that a movie with hot girls stalking each other will win the weekend box-office. (And if it isn’t, it ought to be.)

“The Roommate” grossed $15.6 million to take the top spot at the megaplex, despite pulling some fairly skanktastic reviews. “Sanctum” placed a distant second, even with the enhanced ticket prices of its IMAX 3D engagements, with $9.2 million, while “No Strings Attached” and “The King’s Speech” were jockeying for third with $8.4 million and $8.3 million, respectively. (Final figures will be released today.)

Did you see anything? I can’t imagine you did. This has been a pretty thin season, even once we adjust for how crappy studio pictures usually are between January and March. I do hold out some hope for “Unknown”, though. That looks like it could be fun.
