The Mix-Up: Game of Thrones New Trailer, Titanic Mini-Series and Box Office Blues

Game of Thrones New Trailer…

The countdown is on until the Season 2 premiere and yet another trailer has been released, just to keep us wanting more. This brief little glimpse of joy into the next season focuses on the relationship aspect of GOFT characters – so much drama, so much love and hate!

The last line of the trailer, spoken by Queen Cersei, really foreshadows how this season will play out, “The more people you love, the weaker you are.” Man, April 1 please come now so I can see how dear Queen you become weak.

Titanic’s 100th Aniversary Celebration…

As we know James Cameron’s epic masterpiece Titanic will be re-released in 3D on April 6 just in time to celebrate (Is it wrong to use the term celebrate?) the sinking of the ill-fated ocean liner when it set sail 100 years ago.

But something new is being released as well.

Downtown Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, is coming out with a four-part mini-series, “Titanic” in partnership with ABC that will air in the U.S. on April 14 at 8 p.m. The exact day the ship hit the iceberg in 1912.

Fellowes says other Titanic movies/stories were good but he’s looking to do something different:

“This is a portrait of a ship in a way that other versions haven’t been. A Night to Remember is a wonderful film but it’s mainly about the officers. James Cameron’s was another wonderful film, but that is a love story set against the sinking of the Titanic… We, right from the start, set out to tell the story of the whole ship.”

Hmm, I’m curious to see what he reveals, as we all know the ship hits a berg and sinks in the end. No surprises here.

Weekend Box Office…AKA Save Yourself $10…

This news makes me sad: The top 10 films at the box office this weekend are all rotten green smashed tomatoes on Rotten Tomatoes. Look HERE to see what I mean. It’s a devastating blow to the film community: what to go see in theatres when there is nothing to see?

Number 1 this weekend went to Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax for the second week in a row with $39.1 million. Disney’s John Carter came in at Number 2, living up to lame expectations, making a grand total of $30.6 million – unacceptable for a film that cost over $250 million to make! Numero 3 went to Project X with $11.6 million.

Another fun fact: Eddie Murphy’s A Thousand Words took 6th on the list and is ranked a staggering 0% on Rotten. Ouch.

There aren’t even any small independent films to go see… What’s a girl to do?

OH Mondays…
