Folks, things are just turning up Woody these days and he absolutely earned it.
From its hugely successful opening weekend on May 20 to the rave reviews it's been getting across the board ever since, the indie crowd-pleaser 'Midnight in Paris' is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with and it doesn't look like there's any sign of stopping. Box office observers are now saying that by tonight or tomorrow, 'Paris' is headed to eclipse the $23.2M grossed by 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' and 'Match Point,' making it Woody's most financially successful movie since 1986's 'Hannah and Her Sisters' which earned $40.1M domestically. And if things keep up this way, word on the street is that 'Paris' might just beat that record by next Tuesday, not only making it Woody's most financially successful movie of all-time, but Sony Pictures Classics' most financially successful movie after 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.'
We can only guess as to why the masses are flocking to this movie like no other, but then again, it really is the best movie we've seen all year and the most fun we've had going to the theater in ages. Here's to hoping it keeps on truckin', because this one deserves every penny it gets.
How many of you out there still haven't seen 'Midnight in Paris,' and what the heck is taking ya'?
