First came the Oscar that everyone was sure would go to Viola Davis:
But then there was a ray of hope for them. The trailer for her comedy "Hope Springs" was released and it looked like sh.it. They felt some relief.
However their smile quickly froze when the reviews started trickling in. Certified Fresh.
It couldn't be true, could it?
They still had one last remaining glimmer of hope. Surely a talky comedy/drama about old people's sex lives would flop. It had a weak start on Wednesday, but then kept building and topped $20M through Sunday.
The Hollywood Reporter: Sony and MGM paid in the mid-teens for distribution rights to Hope Springs, and say they are already on solid financial ground.
Already making its money back after a few days of release.
Somewhere in banland Jolie'sLips is watching "Girl, Interrupted" for the 67th time, reminiscing about Angie's Oscar win over a decade ago, drinking and crying his sorrows away.

My mom loves Angelina and has been dragging Jennifer Anderson (she seems to outright refuse to learn her name) all week for not removing her breasts too. She says she may as well since no man stays attached to them.
He should listen to the entire Born to Die album to soothe the ails of his soul. But since it is Sunday, I will offer a prayer of supplication to God [Lizzy Grant aka Lana Del Rey] in that he may find solace in Angelina Jolie's leg and humanitarian efforts.

The Queen! But, why would it "certainly flop" when movies like Something's Gotta Give and It's Complicated(also starring Meryl) showed great numbers? Hope Springs looked like a profitable movie from the get-go. I mean old people go to the movies too.
