300: Rise of an Empire destroys the box office

This weekend was a big one at the box office with 300: Rise of an Empire and Mr. Peabody and Sherman hitting theaters around the country. The big winner for the weekend was 300: Rise of an Empire raking in $45 million on its opening weekend reports CNN. The second place spot for the weekend went to Mr. Peabody and Sherman.

Having seen both of the films this weekend, I can say neither of them truly impressed. 300 opened in 3470 theaters around the country in 3D and 2D versions. Not being a fan of 3D films. I opted for the 2D version.

I didn’t see any previews for the film to speak of before going to see it. I can say I was rather disappointed that the Spartans only showed up in a few places and the film completely ignored the timeline of the first movie. Most of the film followed the Greeks as they sought to raise arms to fight Atremisia, the naval general of the invading army.

The film clearly set things up for a third installment where hopefully we get back to where the original 300 left off. I was rather irritated that a film called 300 barely focused on the Spartans. Parents thinking of taking older kids to the movie be warned it has lots of sex and nudity along with the blood splashing everywhere you might expect. Mr. Peabody and Sherman earned $32.5 million opening in the second place spot. I found that film rather boring; most of the funny parts were seen in the previews.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
