For all of the many political events to occur over the last few weeks this Hollywood Take 2 may sound a little evasive. Yet rest assured, there is a reason for so much partisan neutrality in this political season. Hollywood has the uncanny ability to just keep on going despite changes in national temperament, changes of the status quo, or any other change to the national ecology (whether any of these events occur or not). Maybe it’s “the show must go on,” or another productive aphorism yet resilience can’t be underestimated or ignored in the US’ entertainment capital. If there were any ongoing mandatory policy in the town, entertainment sustainability is always in fashion.
That said most of this week’s stories contradict conventional expectations regarding their content.

End of Watch took first spot at the box office this weekend taking in $13.1M. House at the End of the Street came in at #2 grossing $12.2m and Dredd 3D took the #3 earning $6.2M. Let’s see how they did and if they are worth the money!
The Bourne Legacy got bumped to number two slot this weekend ($9.3M) with Expendable 2 ($13.4M) taking number one at the box office. Hit and Run, Apparition, and Premium Rush all opened this last weekend, but not one made it to the number three, four, or even fifth spot at the box office. Let’s see how they did and if they were worth the money!
The Expendables 2 went straight to the #1 spot last weekend, earning $28.5M. The Bourne Legacy was pushed down into second place while ParaNorman took third place, bringing in $14. The Odd Life of Timothy Green took the #7 spot taking in $10.8M. Cosmopolis came in at the 45th spot earning $70,339, which although seems bad, is actually very good for a film that was only shown in three cinemas! Let’s see how they did and if they were worth the money!
