17 Again (2009) Review

I eventually got to watch “17 Again” after pretty much wanting to see it since it was out at the cinema. As you may know if you read my blog regularly I really like Zac Efron a lot, and in this film he really does not disappoint. Also he is starting to get away from HSM.

Top 10: Young Actors

I have watched a few movies recently and thought that the actor in it has a fantastic career ahead of them so decided to make a top 10 list of those actors. With a few reasons why  I think they will keep progressing and go on to do great things (potentially), from the movies I have seen them in.

Fast & Furious Still A Big Hit At International Box Office

I think thats cool, international viewers loving the car races, haha.

Fast & Furious is racing away with the top spot in the international box office chart, grossing $15.9 million (£10.7 million) in its third week of release.

The Vin Diesel movie, the fourth installment of the action franchise, proved to be the most popular film outside of the U.S. for the third consecutive week, bringing its worldwide box office haul to $316.7 million (£213 million).

Animated film Monsters vs. Aliens claimed the number two position with takings of $10.7 million (£7.2 million), while Zac Efron’s 17 Again is at three with $6.8 million (£4.57 million).

State Of Play Tops U.K. Box Office Chart

Top of the UK box office !!!

Russell Crowe and Dame Helen Mirren‘s thriller State Of Play has stormed to the top of the U.K. box office in its opening weekend (25-26Apr09), with takings of $2.175 million (£1.5 million).

The movie, which sees Mirren star as Crowe’s newspaper editor, knocked Reese Witherspoon‘s Monsters Vs. Aliens in to second place, earning $1.576 (£1.087 million).

Vin Diesel‘s high-speed action film Fast & Furious dropped to three, pulling in $1.525 million (£1.052 million), while comedy 17 Again, starring Zac Efron, was at four, garnering $1.486 million (£1.025 million).

Rounding out the top five with takings of $1.027 million (£708,071) was I Love You, Man starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel.

Obsessed Tops U.S. Box Office

Interesting I wasnt really expecting this to go straight to number 1 in the box office.

Beyonce Knowles’ new movie Obsessed has romped to the top of the U.S. box office chart with opening weekend (24-26Apr09) takings of $28.5 million (£19.65 million)

The thriller stars Knowles and Idris Elba as a couple targetted by a crazed office temp, played by Heroes star Ali Larter.

Obsessed bumped 17 Again from the top spot; the Zac Efron comedy slid down to second place with earnings of $11.665 million (£8.04 million).

Fighting landed third place with $11.441 million followed by Jamie Foxx‘s new movie The Soloist, which managed a disappointing $9.715 million (£7.81 million).

Disney feature Earth rounded out the top five with $8.554 million (£5.89 million) – the best ever opening for a nature movie.

Fast & Furious Wins U.K. Box Office Race

If I was in the UK, I would probably of went to see “Fast & Furious” on friday.

Vin Diesel‘s high-speed action film Fast & Furious has raced to the top of the U.K. box office chart in its opening weekend (11-12Apr09), with takings of $7.2 million (£4.9 million).

The movie – the fourth in the popular franchise – revved ahead of last week’s number one, animated movie Monsters vs Aliens, which pulled in around $4.1 million (£2.8 million).

High School Musical heart-throb Zac Efron‘s comedy 17 Again debuted at number three, making $3.7 million (£2.5 million), while Richard CurtisThe Boat That Rocked dropped to number four, taking $1.4 million (£965,000).

Nicolas Cage‘s thriller Knowing rounded out the top five most popular films in British cinemas, garnering $920,000 (£620,000).
