Spies & Big People
Spy movie opens early and big people hit big screen today!
The Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz spy type movie hit the big screen mid-week. I have no idea why the entertainment world has decided to open something mid-week when it’s not even a long weekend, but for some reason, Knight and Day opened nationwide on Wednesday. Maybe they’re simply afraid a movie about growing older will topple them at the box office.
Opening today, four alumni from Saturday Night Live, plus their comedian-friend Kevin James, hit the big screen in an Adam Sandler written movie entitled Grown Ups.
While Grown Ups opens nationwide today, the team of Cruise and Diaz grabbed an estimated $3.8 million for it’s mid-week debut.
New On The Big Screen
Grown Ups – PG-13 on 3,534 screens
Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider and Kevin James play five longtime friends who hold a reunion during the Fourth of July weekend at a lake house. They’re accompanied by their respective families, whereupon wacky shenanigans ensue. Salma Hayek Pinault, Maria Bello and another former Saturday Night Live cast member, Maya Rudolph, also star.
Knight and Day – PG-13 on 3,098 screens
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz play two very different people in this action film which opened nationwide on Wednesday. Cruise is a spy on the run after being assigned to a mission gone awry. While he attempts to escape from the people he believes double-crossed him, he meets Diaz’s character, an average woman named June, who reluctantly comes along for the ride. Knight and Day reunites Cruise and Diaz who previously appeared together in 2001′s Vanilla Sky.
