Iron Man reigns as the standard-bearer of Hollywood superheroes with a $175.3 million domestic opening weekend for his latest sequel and an overseas haul of a half-billion dollars in less than two weeks.
According to studio estimates Sunday, “Iron Man 3” has raced to a worldwide total of $680.1 million. That includes $175.9 million in its second weekend overseas, where the film has rung up $504.8 million so far.
No other solo superhero — not even Batman or Spider-Man — has managed this kind of business.
Yet the future of Marvel Studios’ flagship franchise is in the hands of a mortal man with no metal armor, gadgets or special powers, other than his ability to rebound from Hollywood pariah to hottest star on the planet. Continue reading →
The South Carolina Gamecocks are ranked No. 3 in this week’s AP Poll and I could not be happier. Simply put, it is “Great to be a Gamecock.”
It has been a long road for the USC football team and for fans of the program. This is the best ranking in the “Steve Spurrier era” and the second-highest ranking in school history; South Carolina reached the No. 2 spot in 1984. Also the Gamecocks have the nation’s longest winning streak at 10 games. Your blogging crew here at LOHD, can recall the 0-11 and 1-10 seasons but now we rejoice. It is great to taste success and to be frank, I desire more. I want the Gamecocks to continue to achieve what we knew they could under Coach Steve Spurrier. Continue reading →
The greatest show on TV premiers its third season tonight at 9pm on HBO. Boardwalk Empire. If you like any of the following movies, you will love Boardwalk Empire: Scarface, Goodfellas, Heat, Casino, Carlitos Way, The Departed. Boardwalk Empire has created some already notorious and notable characters from Nucky Thompson (the absolutely ruthless & crafty politician/gangster who makes most of his bread bootlegging liquor and don’t mind murkin’ a mufucka every now and then if necessary) Chalky White (the thick faced, take-no-shit-from-no-man country boy from the south who moved north to provide a better life for his family.) Arnold Rothstein, the very intelligent, cool and calculating Jewish gangster from New York who favors making money over murder. And lets not forget about Margaret Schroeder, the Irish ride-or-die bitch for Nucky who smashed the homie, gave away millions of dollars worth of Nucky’s land and still stands to tell about about it……well, at least up until season 3. Because its one thing we learned in the season 2 finale: NOBODY IS SAFE on Boardwalk Empire!! Anybody can get murked. RIP Jimmy.
