It’s that time of the year again to gorge ourselves on Turkey and Pumpkin Pie. So with Thanksgiving week we are taking a little break today from a full post, but I will be back tomorrow with new Comic Book Reviews and recovering from Black Friday Shopping.
Over the weekend Deadpool broke all sorts of box office records. Here is how it all stacked up. #1 opening weekend ($132.75M) ever in Fox history #1 opening weekend ever for an R-rated film #1 February opening weekend #1 Winter opening weekend #2 opening weekend ever for an original Marvel property title #5 opening weekend ever for a Marvel property title Even more impressive is that this all happened with a very small $58 million budget that is very low by Hollywood standards for a major title with visual effects and a star.
Over the weekend I finally got the chance to head up to California State University of Northridge that is currently holding an exhibit of Jack Kirby original artwork.
With this last weekends disastrous opening of the Fox’s new Fantastic Four reboot that made $25 million dollars and was second to the new Mission Impossible film that was in its second week of release.
There were two pretty big Hollywood Reboot announcements first we finally got to see a trailer of the long gestating Fantastic Four reboot from Fox and the un-needed reboot of Ghostbuster with an all female cast.
Well this week there are some real disappointments with some of the new books that started this week. But there were some surprises too so lets see how everything fairs this week.
So now part two of great comic collections you should have on your bookshelf. Make sure that you check out part 1 with all the details of how I came about this list.
