Did you end up moviegoing this weekend? I actually stayed home. Quiet weekend which is sometimes what ya need. The Hunger Games continues to devour the nation's entertainment budget with a bigger third weekend than most films can muster on their first. Otherwise it was a nostalgia weekend, especially for the 27-34 year-old set with 1999's American Pie cast reunited and the Titanic (1997) rerelease.
If you're part of that demo, were you feeling the nostalgia? Don't lie. You've quoted "one time at band camp..." before.

• Damsels in Distress, Whit Stillman's long awaited return debuted in limited release with a decent $16,000 per screen average on 4 screens.
• 21 Jump Street is rapidly approaching the impressive gross of The Vow. So, go Chan.
• Despite working so hard for media attention Bully only added one screen this weekend. Bizarre.
