In this week's edition, Eddie Murphy is promoting 2009's "Imagine That." On its opening weekend, "Imagine That" would gross $5.5 million, finishing fifth behind "The Hangover," "Up," "The Taking of Pelham 123," "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," and "Land of the Lost." "Imagine That' did beat the sixth week of Star Trek. "Imagine That" would go on to gross just over $16 million domestically.
In this interview with "Chuck the Movie Guy," Murphy is told that he hit the "perfect blend" between finding the humor and going too far with his character. Murphy gives full credit to the director, "That's Karey, the director, that found that balance." Later, Murphy expresses his astonishment in regard to the passing of musical trends, "You can go to a 10-year old or a 15-year-old and say, 'Name all four of the Beatles'... and they can't do it. And that blows my mind."
