that the excitable Scottish scribe was waiting for the day AFTER the KICK-ASS opening for his agents to take out his next project, NEMESIS, a move he may regret considering the tepid opening for KICK-ASS, which only managed a sub-$20 million opening AFTER Lionsgate toted up every penny  – thus avoiding being #2 to a four-week-old cartoon about getting your dragon to use a potty chair. Millar seems to have made peace with the opening however, probably because his agents didn’t listen to his advice and already sold the hell out of his next few books. Although there’s no disputing that KICK-ASS will recoup on home ...
freelance costumed vigilantes have been outlawed and most costumed superheroes are in retirement or working for the government. The story focuses on the personal development and struggles of the protagonists as an investigation into the murder of a government sponsored superhero pulls them out of retirement, and eventually leads them to confront a plot to stave off nuclear war by killing millions of people. Creatively, the focus of Watchmen is on its structure. Gibbons used a nine-panel grid layout throughout the series and added recurring symbols such as a blood-stained smiley .

Why Scott Pilgrim Is The Movie Comic Book Movies Should Model ...
I loved it so much the first time I saw it, in fact, that it took a second viewing to confirm to myself that I really wasn’t misremembering how good it was, how much I’d enjoyed it, and how well it worked as a film. I’d had this thing in my head, before I saw it, that could pretty much have been reduced to a constant refrain of “Please don’t screw it up, please don’t screw it up” over and over again.

Weekend Report: 'Witch' Blasts Off, 'Watchmen' Burns Out - Box ...
rocketed to the top of the box office with $24.4 million on approximately 4,400 screens at 3,187 sites, while last weekend's big draw, Watchmen , shrank by two thirds. As a whole, overall attendance hit a 13-year low for the time of year. While Race was a solid attraction, the movies below it simply lacked the appeal or were too old to maintain 2009's prior record-breaking rate, and Race didn't have the magnitude of past high profile March releases to compensate. While it wasn't as sizable as Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! last year, Race to Witch Mountain had a worthy showing, soaring above the norm ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
