As we await the 85th Academy Award nominations announcement on Thursday morning, we now have a look at the opposite end of the 2012 film spectrum.  The 33rd Golden Raspberry Award nominations have been announced, celebrating the very worst of what 2012′s movie slate had to offer.  Leading the pack is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 with 10 nominations, as the film landed a nomination in every single category.  The Twilight closer will go head-to-head with Battleship, A Thousand Words, That’s My Boy, and The Oogieloves in Big Balloon Adventure for the Worst Picture title.

It’s easy to beat up on the Twilight franchise, and even though I wouldn’t go so far as to call Breaking Dawn – Part 2 a good movie, it’s in no way the worst movie of the year.  The sheer amount of beheadings alone in director Bill Condon’s climactic fight sequence is enough to make the movie worth watching.  Anyway, hit the jump to check out the full list of Razzie Awards nominations.

Weekend Box Office – RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION Tops FINDING NEMO 3D with $21.1 Million

by     Posted 2 years, 92 days ago

There were no blockbusters on this September frame but, after last weekend’s dismal returns, it’s hard to feel disappointed. Aided by 3D technology, Resident Evil: Retribution reigned with $21.1 million – more than twice what The Possession earned in first place last weekend. Finding Nemo 3D also had a ticket-price advantage although, in this case, the 2003 Pixar classic could not match the gross of last year’s 3D The Lion King re-release.

Title Weekend Total
1. Resident Evil: Retribution $21,100,000 $21.1
2. Finding Nemo 3D $17,504,000 $17.5
3. The Possession $5,800,000 $41.1
4. Lawless $4,219,000 $30.1
5. ParaNorman $3,039,000 $49.3
6. The Expendables 2 $3,030,000 $80.2
7. The Words $2,880,000 $9.15
8. The Bourne Legacy $2,875,000 $107.8

In the spirit of TIFF 2012 winding down this weekend, I’m interested in hearing what some of our readers most anticipated pics coming out of the festival are. For me, I was already psyched for films such as Looper, Cloud Atlas, and The Master, but early buzz has also peaked my interest in The Place Beyond the Pines, End of Watch, Spring Breakers, Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp, Dredd 3D, and At Any Price among others. What about you? Where there films that showed up on your radar while following the festival? What about a film you were looking forward to that you were disappointed didn’t fare quite as well as you had hoped (for me, this was Passion)? Let us know in the comments and be sure to check out this week’s fifth spot for a link that can help you get caught up on all of our TIFF 2012 coverage.

In addition to that fifth spot, also on the docket for this week’s Top 5 is a slew of video interviews for Paul W. S. Anderson‘s Resident Evil: Retribution, the first full trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln, James Cameron talking the future of Avatar and what his take on Jurassic Park would have been like, and Steve’s video interviews with some of the major names behind Finding Nemo 3D. Brief recaps and links to each lie after the jump.

Resident Evil Retribution slice

After enduring the worst weekend since 2008 (and a couple more low weekends besides), the box office received a much-needed boost on Friday from a pair of familiar features. Resident Evil: Retribution was yesterday’s clear winner, earning an estimated $8.4 million from 3,012 locations. The fifth entry in the Resident Evil franchise, Retribution is expected to take in $22 million through Sunday – a slight decline from the $26.6 million posted by Resident Evil: Afterlife on this weekend in 2010. The last RE feature (and the first to feature 3D effects), Afterlife went on to earn almost $300 million worldwide – 79% of that from international audiences. 3D technology also claimed second place at the Friday box office with the debut of Finding Nemo 3D. The first Pixar classic to get a 3D make-over since the Toy Story/Toy Story 2 double feature, Nemo 3D earned an estimated $5.1 million from 2,904 runs for what is expected to be a debut weekend in the $18 million range. Finally, in just 5 theatres in New York and LA, Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master broke records for a limited release with a giant per-screen average of $48,425. Full details and analysis tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1. Resident Evil 5 $8,400,000 $8.4
2. Finding Nemo 3D $5,100,000 $5.1
3. The Possession $1,800,000 $41.3
4. Lawless $1,400,000 $30.3
5. The Words $930,000 $7.2

New images have arrived from the new James Bond film Skyfall and Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Resident Evil: Retribution.  I’m still impressed by the latest Skyfall trailers, and I’m hoping that the face-off between Bond (Daniel Craig) and Javier Bardem‘s villain will be one of the franchise’s best duels.  As for Resident Evil: Retribution, it’s Milla Jovovich wearing skintight leather and wielding two guns, which seems to be more than enough for the franchise’s fans.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Skyfall opens November 9th, and also stars Bérénice Marlohe, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, and Ralph FiennesResident Evil: Retribution opens September 14th, and also stars Sienna Guillory, Oded Fehr, Boris Kodjoe, Johann Urb, Kevin Durand, Bingbing Li, and Michelle Rodriguez.
