Yeah I have heard good things about this one as well. Ever since I found out it was rated R I have been rooting for it. Looks like it could be a lot of fun.

I watched it in 3D this time. Even though it's post-converted, the format has some nice depth and some good 3D gags. And the G.I. Joe 2 preview that played in front of it wasn't too bad either.

And H&G is still a blast. As long as you don't take it seriously and don't think too hard about it... it's a fun ride.

I realized that on my second viewing. Still impressive, considering the budget.

According to Box Office Mojo, H&G's second weekend has went down 53% to $9.2M-- it's domestic cume now is $34.4M. Coupled with the $62M it's amassed internationally, I expect Paramount and MGM to consider a sequel once the worldwide total eclipses $125M.

The movie has officially crossed $100M worldwide.

Give it another week, and I think Paramount and MGM are going to fast track a sequel for January 2015...

It's official: Paramount is going to follow through with a sequel, per Deadline.

What are the chances that Renner will return?

Chances are, he and Arterton have 1-2 sequel options in their original contracts. So Paramount can easily exercise those when the sequel gets greenlit in earnest.

But with Renner's growing price, he'll have the clout to renegotiate his contract for a better payday (not so sure about Arterton). And Paramount is very penny-pinching when it comes to franchises... they'll probably do a backend deal with him in exchange for a smaller upfront paycheck.

Movie has hit DVD and Blu-ray today. I only got the DVD, it's highly likely Paramount will dip back in the well for a more loaded Blu-ray release for the sequel.

And producer Adam McKay says the sequel will be insane and possibly PG-13 rated.

It better not be PG-13...

Those of you who enjoyed this and aren't worried about the 3D Target has a digibook version for $13. Here's a link:

This was horrible. The acting was so flat and the story so paper thin that I fell asleep.

Also $13 in stores (if they have any, word is these digibooks are kinda scarce although my Target had 3 copies of 2d and 3 3d books. 3d book is $22.99, but 2d is $13). I picked one up from what's been said here, but after reading some other reviews around the web I'm scared to open it. I'm either gonna love or hate it, no middle ground. Went to Redbox it instead of waiting for a library copy (insanely long list, still 150 people in front of me and I requested weeks ago when it was pre-order), but RB only has the R cut on blu (at least from the specs listed on screen at the RB, if it's really unrated please say so). I'm torn, half of me wants to rip it open and watch it, but the other half wants to take it back and wait for the library disc. But if I love it I'd want the digibook, and it's doubtful to impossible I'll get through the 150 people on the library list within the 90 day return window.

What's the runtime on the Redbox BD (if anyone took this route)? Should be easy to tell if unrated or not. Under 90 is R, around 98 is UR.
