This final note on the way out. This being a Monday, we were greeted with the customary box office figures for new movies this morning. And we learned "Battleship," the latest blockbuster from Universal, has taken in $170 million so far.
Which is kinda funny, 'cause it doesn't open here for another two and a half weeks. Forbes points out that the film -- which has been roundly panned -- is being opened overseas just to get some of its investment back in advance of possibly taking a drubbing here in the States.
Disney apparently did the same thing with Avengers over the weekend -- opened in 13 countries overseas, made $178 million.
Although that one I am gonna go see. C'mon, Captain America and Thor together?
