Weinstein Decreases Theater Count for ‘Nine’

NINE_Nine_Paparazzi_FinalIt might have gotten five Golden Globe nominations and some good reviews, but Nine is not doing great at the box-office.

The film opened to 1,400 screens last weekend and finished at eighth place with only $5.5 million in ticket sales.

The film’s distributor, the Weinstein Company, is reducing the film’s showings to 800-900 theaters in the coming weeks.

The film, which was one of the most anticipated movies of the year and cost an estimated $64 million to make, stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Sophia Loren, Judi Dench, Fergie, Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman.

Nine opened in limited U.S. release on December 18 and expanded widely on December 25.

Have YOU seen Nine?

Update: The studio is now saying that they have no plans of pulling the movie from any theaters after disappointing box office.

David Glasser, an operations executive for the company, who initially was the one that said that the movie was performing well on only 870 key screens and expected that Nine would not perform well in the weeks ahead, is now saying:

“At this moment in time there has been no plan between us nor the theater chains that we deal with to cut any theaters.”

Taylor Momsen: Seventeen Magazine February 2010

momsen1701__oPtGossip Girl star Taylor Momsen takes the cover of Seventeen’s February 2010 issue. Here are some snippets from the interview.

On people not taking her seriously as a musician:

I think people don’t really take me seriously because I’m 16. And they think most 16-year-olds don’t know what they want to do. But I actually really do, because I’ve been thinking about it since I was 2. And in the world of acting, you have such a stigma put onto you that you [get into this business] for the fame. Fame frankly means nothing. It’s so stupid. Unless you do something great and unless you do something that’s fulfilling to you, what’s the point?

On her personal style:

I like to wear a lot of baggy things. Like, I buy guys’ clothes, like T-shirts, and I cut them up and wear them loose, but my blazers have to be really fitted. I also like layering things and really short skirts — or showing off my legs.

On being called angsty:

I am angsty. I’ll be angsty until I’m 80 years old. I think that keeps things fresh. But I always think angst is such a derogatory word toward teenagers. It just means you’re figuring s*** out, and I don’t know why that’s a negative thing.

‘Up in the Air’ – The Oscar Race is On

EW1084CVR_PROMOUp in the Air stars George Clooney, Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick grace the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

The film, which is directed by Jason Reitman (Juno) had recently garnered six Golden Globe nominations.

On the film:

“Jason came to my house and brought the script and I read it,” Clooney says. “There were some things that sounded like they were taken from a Barbara Walters special that I had done. I’m not completely unaware of people’s perceptions of me. I sort of felt like, if you were ever going to deal with it, this is probably the best way to do it and the best person to do it with. If you can’t point at what people think are your shortcomings, then you’re boxing yourself in.”

On what needs to be done to campaign for the movie:

“Kiss a lot of babies,” Clooney says. “I’m enjoying watching people talk about Vera and discovering Anna. I’ve been in good movies that were not successful. Out of Sight bombed, Three Kings really didn’t do well. O Brother, Where Art Thou? did okay, not great. The problem is that if they don’t [perform at the box office], then it really is going to be just Transformers. I’m not making any judgment on Transformers, I’m just saying [Hollywood will only make] those tentpoles.”’

On not using body doubles:

“I bite my cuticles so I’m always ashamed,” he admits. “But when you see somebody else’s hand come in and it’s got, like, different fingers or hairy knuckles, it doesn’t look right.”
