Last weekend Danny McBride and director Jody Hill’s comedy “The Foot Fist Way” hit theaters in LA and NY as part of its limited release. Despite only being open in 4 theaters it managed to earn over $9,000 a theater, that’s better than last weekend’s #3, “The Strangers”. Lucky for us “Foot Fist Way” is branching out to a lot more theaters for its second week in release.
Here is a list of the theaters where you’ll be able to find it starting today, June 6:
AUSTIN at the ALAMO LAMAR 6
BOSTON at the KENDALL SQ. 9
CHICAGO at the AMC RIVER EAST 21
DALLAS CITY at the ANGELIKA
DETROIT at the UPTOWN 8
MADISON at the MADISON 4
MINNEAPOLIS at the LAGOON 5
PORTLAND at the REGAL FOX TOWER 10
RALEIGH-DURHAM at the CHELSEA 3

I’ve already picked out my theater and have plans to go watch it this weekend. Check out the red-band trailer below for “The Foot Fist Way” and you’ll want to do the same. Warning, this trailer is NSFW:
Hollywood just can’t get enough of the videogame adaptations these days. Most are flops (Bloodrayne, Hitman) but some can turn out pretty well (… um, I’m sure there were good ones somewhere). Lionsgate is hoping the addition of Bruce Willis to the cast of “Kane and Lynch” will help shift it into that latter category. If he decides to take it, Willis is take on the role of Kane:
Willis will play Adam “Kane” Marcus, a mercenary who makes an unlikely alliance with a schizophrenic killer named James Lynch. The duo is forced on a mission to retrieve a stolen microchip.
The script, written by Kyle Ward and produced by Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter of Hitman, will be directed by Simon Crane. This would be Crane’s directorial debut, should it happen. Crane previously worked as a stunt director for “Hancock,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” “Troy,” and “X-Men: The Last Stand.”
Kane & Lynch sounded like a cool premise, but, like most games these days, I completely missed it. Hopefully the movie will have a little more draw to it.
I hate Michael Bay just as much as I hate the dead, those space consuming do-nothings. So what happens when you mix the two together? You get one pretty agitated guy sitting right here.
As part of Hasbro and Parker Brothers’ big plans for adapting a half dozen board games into movies (yes, you read that correctly) Ouija is up to bat for its big screen debut. One might ask, what kind of movie could you make about a piece of wood that sits on the floor and gets boring after about 30 seconds of arguing, “who is pushing it? Stop pushing it!” Lucky for you I have both answers, or maybe that’s unlucky for you.
Michael Bay’s “Platinum Dunes” movie label is set to adapt everyone’s
favorite only game for contacting the dead while David Berenbaum has signed on to write the screenplay. Berenbaum wrote “Elf” which wasn’t bad but wasn’t great either, so that’s not giving me a lot of confidence so far. And the plot?
Although the specific log line for the film is being kept under wraps, the film will be a supernatural adventure with the Ouija board playing an integral part of the story. The movie is not taking a “Jumanji”-like approach, which involved a game coming to life.
I’m wondering if they’ll backtrack on this one and make it exactly like Jumanji. I mean, how else can you really make a movie about a board game?
