This article I found fascinating. It’s about several currently running movies starring women- IDENTITY THIEF, MAMA, SAFE HAVEN, and Berry’s THE CALL.
Not really being in the industry, I seriously wondered why Reuters contributor, Todd, Cunningham, suggested, “You don’t want to make too much of the success of those films…. While hits, none of the them are blockbusters; “Identity Thief” is at $123 million domestic, “Mama” at $71 million and “Safe Haven” $66 million. And this is typically a slow season at the box office.”
I get the part of the money. Even $123M isn’t big money for a blockbuster.

“PEOPLE BUY TICKETS TO WATCH WOMEN ACT.”
repeat … “PEOPLE BUY TICKETS TO WATCH WOMEN ACT.”
Bravo, Halle, by the way. And, hey, read the following article:
