Sorry, just had to go for it. And so far, the image isn't an apt metaphor. Salt debuting at #2? In the face of Inception? Guts-y! Yes, A.Jo reunites with Bone Collector director Phillip Noyce... try saying THAT 10 times fast! For this tale of... whatever. Espionage. Wanted 1.5, basically. This is the kind of movie that people like Angelina announce their retirement on. But unlike Liam Neeson or Anthony Hopkins, she's got some last-minute items to finish up on, like... oh, just CLEOPATRA, for God's sake! I guess Jolie's bio-pic is already taken or something.
The other debut this week is Ramona and Beezus. Based on the 1988 TV series of the same name, sort of, Beverly Cleary is now all the rage in cinematic literary circles. What, are Judy Blume and Erma Bombeck chopped liver? Will Spike Jonze ever adapt Where the Sidewalk Ends for the silver screen? I can't take it anymore, I gotta run.
