cesar-chavez-posterNoah is the highest-opening for a top-billed Russell Crowe, and the second-highest opening of his career, behind Man of Steel.  It’s also the biggest opening of director Darren Aronofsky’s career. Of course, this is the biggest budget he’s ever had to play with. It’s a win for Paramount.

Sabotage will quickly disappear. Not much was made of this movie uniting two Terminators with each other, but Sam Worthington’s star wattage has significantly since Avatar and the two Titans movies.

Cesar Chavez opted to have many of their screenings in Spanish-language but it didn’t make much difference.
