Box office report: ‘The Conjuring’ spooks ‘R.I.P.D.’ with $41.5 million debut

Wooo-HOOOOO! Break out the champagne, sparkling cider, holy water, whatever you want to celebrate the success of The Conjuring and James Wan kicking ass opening weekend! If you caught it, keep that good word-of-mouth going… this movie deserves to be a SMASH.

Michelle Rodriguez, Maggie Q join EW’s ‘Women Who Kick Ass’ Comic-Con panel

From this great EW piece: “One of Rodriguez’s costars challenged the script that called for her to drive a car off a cliff.

Rodriguez : “He was like, ‘A girl’s not gonna drive the car.’ I’m like, what, are you stupid? I’m looking at this cat like, do you want to race me, homie?” I’m betting that cat backed off pretty fast.
If they’d added Zoe Bell, it would have been cool. Gina Carano would have been pretty great, too. If they’d added Pam Grier, though, that might just have tipped me over to attending this year (or at least seriously looking into it). But with Ms. Rodriguez (who I have personally and shamelessly worshiped since seeing “Girlfight” back in the day), plus Ms. Sackhoff, and Ms. Guira…the ‘Women Who Kick Ass’ panel, the (last ever, sniffle) Breaking Bad panel, and the Godzilla Encounter make me regret my decision to not even try to attend due to monetary issues (AKA being WAY too broke to even consider it).
