    Not a good opening for any of them - at least Aniston's movie cost about a 1/4 of Elysium. I guess people weren't too excited about Occupy Spacestation, and Damon hasn't had a hit in a while.

    I saw Elysium last night. I liked it. A lot like District 9: same directory, District 9 lead actor plays the lead bad guy (same actor who played Murdoch in the A-team movie) no sex or nudity (unless you count Damon who plays the role almost always topless.

    I think Elysium beat out Aniston's movie because there just isn't that much interest in watching a 40+ yr old stripper who doesn't get naked or at least topless?

    In 3D, WAAAY too much. Like almost $60 for 4. And the theater wasn't that full on Saturday @ 5:30pm.

    I can see why Disney was planning this originally as a direct to video release. It's in that gray area between really low budget and a classic Pixar film.

    most of Damon's recent movies seemed very sparse and empty to me. I liked Elysium, but not because of his performance but in spite of it. the scenic shots and concept are very good, and the rest of the movie is of the same quality as District 9 although without the cultural impact. if District 9 is David Copperfield, Elysium is the Cliff Notes version.

    Jody Foster is interesting in her role of the evil, elitist minister; it bugs me how old she looks now: asexual too.

    I walked out of District 9 - thought it was horrible. I get that he was making a political statement, but it would be better to just concentrate on a great story. If a great story makes a statement, so be it. Better yet, start the movie with a 30 second ad about whatever dumb cause they support, then give me an entertaining movie. That is the entire reason I'm in the theater, to be entertained.

    All splash, no heart.

    I've seen all the big budget summer flicks. Pacific Rim blew them all away.

    Mid-August doesn't exactly scream "great movie."

    im kinda shocked by the Planes number...i mean its basically Cars with with wings, which you would think would be another Pixar juggernaut...to me that maybe the biggest sign of the summer that people arent going to movies anymore, even with all the other flops

    28M for a comedy with bad reviews isn't bad. It'll make its money back most likely. 30M for an expensive blockbuster could mean trouble, but those usually make more overseas.

    Face it, Hollywood has learned they can make specific types of bad movies and virtually guarantee a profit with hype, big stars, and a good first week, so good movies of the past that had more risk involved are go very rare. The upside on those isn't huge either. Even mediocre "big" films can make quite a bit.
