In the late 1990’s wrestling was all the rage. And for the briefest moment in time, the rage was caused by World Championship Wrestling and their band of former World Wrestling Federation stars, the New World Order.
I remember describing the NWO to my girlfriend at the time as this – you have your good guys, your bad guys and then the EVEN worse guys. That’s the NWO.
And yes, that’s right. I was watching wrestling AND had a girlfriend.
The NWO helped WCW dominate the Monday night wrestling wars for a good two years, and nearly helped put the WWF out of business. However, poor planning and stoylines and complete mismanagement eventually led WWF to purchase their rival, and along with it, all the NWO footage and trademarks, which is now on display in the new Blu-Ray/DVD collection NWO: The Revolution. Check out the trailer below and then hit the jump to read our review.
This weekend sees the finale of one of the most commercially successful franchises in the history of filmmaking. It also happens to be one of the most reviled. Regardless of our personal feelings, there’s now doubt that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is going to be number one at the box office. The questions to ask – how much will it make, and how much will Skyfall take out of its audience. Here are our predictions:
The fifth film in the Twilight franchise is actually the second half of the fourth book; smelling money, producers and the studio did the Harry Potter move of splitting the finale into a two parter. It’s definitely a smart move for everyone involved, including the diehard fans who won’t feel shortchanged. The last film debut with an amazing $138 million virtually a year ago to the day of this new release and there’s no real reason to expect Breaking Dawn Part 2 to do any less. On that note, look for the film to bring in $142 million this weekend.
