Wow! I knew that MIB3 outperformed the Avengers last weekend and became the number 1 movie in the U.S , but I didn’t know until now that it broke sales records!
Thats right- The Men In Black set a new IMAX Memorial Day Weekend record, grossing $12.7 Million at the IMAX box offices during its 4 day opening weekend! That is pretty fantastic. The previous record holder for the weekend was the final Pirates of the Caribbean Movie, so the competition was stiff. Still, the MIB came out on top!
I love seeing movies in IMAX, it really makes you feel like you are inside the movie. I’m glad that it did so well with MIB3, maybe more movies will be heading to IMAX theaters! Bring it on!
Congrats to the Men In Black, I think you have some MIBelievers to thank? 🙂
My favorite news site is reporting that the US government has opened an ADH- Alien Defense Headquarters. It makes sense since there is supposed to be an Alien attack later this year! I’m wondering how this new headquarters will compare to the Men In Black…I bet their weapons and Agents aren’t nearly as cool! On second thought- it must be a decoy because we know that the REAL Alien Defense Department is top secret!
This is really cool- there was a UFO crash reported in this town Aurora, over 100 YEARS AGO! There was even a funeral for the “Martian” Pilot! I guess people have been interested in Aliens for a lot longer than I thought! Now the real question is: why haven’t I heard about this before? In fact, none of my friends had ever heard of this place either. Perhaps the MIBs performed one of their “Mind Wipings” to make people forget!
Check out this article on a UFO from Argentina! Theres a pretty cool video too. I have been watching a bunch of videos like this on Youtube, some are actually pretty convincing! If you have any UFO videos or pictures please send them in!
OOH looks like the “pink surprise cake” might have some competition! Our favorite ice cream spot, Baskin- Robbins, has released a few new flavors and sundae options to commemorate the release of MIB3! Here is what they have for us (try not to drool on your keyboard):
The ‘Lunar Cheesecake’ ice cream, originally released for the moon landing in 1969 (woah!) will be making a reappearance. It features green and white cheesecake ice cream loaded with cheesecake bits and wrapped up in a crunchy Graham cracker ribbon.
The new sundaes, “Lunar Lander” and “Agent 31” feature the Lunar Cheesecake ice cream, with the “Lander” topped with Marshmallow and Yellow Cake (YUMMM!), and “31” topped with brownies and hot fudge (DROOOL!)
Definitely trying one of everything! (including the pink surprise cake)
It looks like the Men In Black are inspiring all sorts of delicious treats! Dunkin Donuts, (whom I have always suspected as being involved in an Alien cover-op), has released some new stuff that I can’t wait to try. The ‘Black Cocoa Creme Iced Coffee,’ and ‘Undercover Black Cocoa Donut’ are both inspired by the movie (and look delicious!) Let’s hope there isn’t any “Spikey Bulba” hiding in there!
I found some stills from behind the scenes of MIB3, featuring the incredible work of movie make-up artist Rick Baker. They look great! In the article below, “Screenrant” describes how they went for a “retro” look since the MIBs were traveling back in time! Movie magic really amazes me.
