Hi guys & gals. Sorry for the lack of updates, but I’ve been busy this summer.

I’ll start off with the Japan’s reaction of Pearl Harbor. Although I’ve received a couple of FUs in Japanese, the majority of people have liked it.

-Read this article of Japan’s reaction here. (Thanks to Adam Lloyd for the heads-up)

-I’m almost done transcribing a lengthy article that appeared in July’s Esquire Magazine. It interviews Michael, and tells a lot of good stuff. I’ll post it as soon as I’m done.

This is for all the losers (haters) that said this movie would tank.

From deadlinehollywood:

SUNDAY AM: Paramount says PG-13 Transformers officially made $22.7 million Friday and $25.9 million Saturday and a projected $18.9 million Sunday from 4,011 North American theaters. After a record breaking Fourth Of July mid week opening, I’m told the DreamWorks battle of the bots hauled in a hefty $67.6 million this weekend for a 6 1/2 day cume of $152.5 million. So, in even less time, Transformers now has scored the biggest 7-day opening of all time for a non-sequel, passing Spider-Man 1 ($151.6M), The Passion Of The Christ ($144.6M) and Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone ($129.4). In addition, Transformers has grossed $93.6 million in 23 overseas markets representing 40% of the international business. Paramount estimates the global box office by end of day Sunday at $246.1 mil.
