Monday’s Box office Results.


Ted, the first live action movie written and directed by Seth McFralane (creator of Family Guy) opened this weekend and topped the box office at $54,100,000. It has not yet opened over seas. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Laura Vandervoort and Giovanni Ribisi. Initially this movie was to be released in a couple of weeks but when GI Joe 2 was pushed back until next March Ted took its place in the schedule. I love Family Guy and the reviews are around 76% at rotten so I am really looking forward to seeing this film!

Second place was the male stripper comedy, Magic Mike, directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn and Olivia Munn which took in $39,155,000 . Lets just say my interest in this movie is much less than zero. 




About liamfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
