Adjusting box office numbers for inflation is a fun little game. We recently saw how 'The Dark Knight Rises' held up against Tim Burton's 1989 'Batman,' and the results were a bit surprising. But this time we're taking a look at the worst opening weekends of all time, and 2012 has quite a few titles on that list -- one recent film in particular actually had the worst opening weekend of all time. Any guesses?
Katy Perry Part of Me
With the exception of poor Katy Perry, everyone was a winner at the box office this week. Seriously. Of the top ten films, nine of them either opened well or held well, making this one of the most consistent weekends of the summer season. Filmmakers and studios: pat yourselves on the backs. You've earned this one.
'Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D' opens in theaters this week (you can watch the trailer here) and to help celebrate, we take a look back through Katy Perry's colorful career our favorite way possible: with Katy Perry GIFs.
Katy Perry's career and music lends itself to animated GIFs extremely well. What with the on-stage antics, the costumes, the color, the goofiness and, oh yeah, her natural, um, talents... they all make for great GIFfing.
So join us as we host a retrospective on the career of Katy Perry in animated GIF format.
At first glance, pop star Katy Perry (and star of the upcoming concert film 'Katy Perry: Part of Me') and Loki, the sneering and conniving villain from 'The Avengers' don't seem to have much in common. Well, aside from a predilection to garish costumes. But at a closer glance, maybe Katy Perry and Loki are much more alike than we could've imagined?
When Madonna made her concert documentary 'Truth or Dare' in 1991, her then-boyfriend Warren Beatty was featured in a few scenes, but he didn't look all that happy to have the cameras in his face.
Now a somewhat similar situation is playing out between Katy Perry and her ex-husband Russell Brand as she prepares for the July 5th release of her own concert film, 'Part of Me.' But while Brand didn't mind being in the movie when it was shot, he's now reportedly upset that he won't have a say in how the couple's relationship will be depicted on-screen.
Every fifteen or so years we get a pop princess that more or less (or better or worse) becomes the voice of a particular generation. This generation's singing queen is arguably Katy Perry, so what better way to let everybody know that then by releasing a documentary/concert movie on said singer.
We're just going to leave this here. The full poster is after the jump.
Katy Perry has big boobs.
Okay, with that out of the system, the only two reasons why her concert film 'Katy Perry: Part of Me' should be in three dimensions - make that one reason - is that Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus had success with their multi-dimensional concert films. Here's the trailer for Perry's ripped-from-the-headlines documentary.
