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? 🙂
I have been thinking a lot about time travel today, so I looked for something fun to post on the subject! Agent J goes back in time in MIB3 by jumping off the Chrysler building with a special MIB gadget (AMATEURS DO NOT ATTEMPT!)
I found this great article on time travelers from the Weekly World News archive and thought you might enjoy it! I hope the MIBs are careful about not changing the future! (unless it is to save us from Aliens, of course.)
So as you know, I have been obsessing over the Baskin-Robbins “Pink Surprise” cake that keeps showing up in the MIB3 promos and ads. It looked delicious, but I had no idea what flavor it actually was. Well now I know!
The “Pink Surprise” cake, is a “triple-layer ice cream cake made of Oreo Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream sandwiched between two layers of Devil’s Food Cake and adorned with pink frosting roses.”
I was watching the first two Men In Black movies to prepare for MIB3, and spotted something really cool! It turns out the Weekly World News has been on board with the Men In Black for years! I couldn’t find a clip online, but there is a scene in MIB I where K and J stop at a news stand and pick up a copy of the WWN!
K grabs the paper and tells J that it is the “Best damn investigative reporting on the planet.”
The headline reads: Farm wife says, “ALIEN STOLE MY HUSBAND’S SKIN!”
Now I know why I like the WWN so much, they are the official news source of the MIB!
(Couldn’t find the “Aliens Stole My Husband’s Skin” headline, but this one seemed really cool too!)
Our friend and MIBLeader Bugeyes has found the mysterious “Clive’s!” I wish I could see it! It certainly seems that there are strange things going on there… Bugeyes is really on top of this stuff! Check out what he found.
