TAKE TWO WEEKEND FIRST SEPT 14

TAKE TWO WEEKEND FIRST SEPT 14

Having surged for nearly two-thirds of 2012, the Hollywood boxoffice has cooled and chilled during late August and early September. Labor Day typically signals the start of a plummeting month as high school and college football games enter the entertainment marketplace.

However, according to national statistics, “The Words” and “Cold Light of Day” both tanked, leaving summer hold overs like “The Candidate”, “Expendables II” and “Dark Knight”   , the  late August horror entry, “The Possession,” and “Obama’s America,” which has become the second highest grossing political documentary. Only , Michael Moore’s examination of the Bush administration, “Fahrenheit 9/11” stands in the far distance having amassed $119 million at the boxoffice compared to Obama’s $26 million plus. Still, the projection of a second term under the President has passed former vice president Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” ($24.1 million) and Moore’s “Bowling for Columbine” ($21.5 million).

Facing August entries (“Nitro Circus,” “Sparkle,” “Premium Rush,” “Hit & Run,” “Oogieloves”) that had little demand and thus slow hold over potential, this week’s one 3D family friendly and one 3D horror franchise has, in some multiplexes, been supplemented with limited roll outs of some popular summer ‘niche’ entries.

The niche indies range from “Safety Not Guaranteed,” in which reporters respond to a classified ad for a time traveling companion to a fantasy about a six-year-old girl living in a bayou surrounded by rising waters (“Beasts of the Southern Wild”) and a drama about the fight to restore the celebration of Christmas in a small mountain town (“Last Ounce of Courage”). The Christian drama stars Jennifer O’Neill, Fred Williams and Marshall Teague, and  explores three generations of a family impacted by their service to America by strapping on their boots and a political clash with the ACLU over the spiritual and secular meanings of Christmas Day.   It comes from Rocky Mountain Pictures (“Obama’s America”).
