The Longest YardWith the words "box office slump" being tossedaroundmoretimes then a Paris Hilton sex tape this summer, Paramount Pictures may have revealed a recipe to success after announcing today that they've in fact had their best domestic take ever. We're talking $503,031,989, which blew away their old record of $412 million set back in 1994 with help from the film Forrest Gump. If you're wondering, they did it with a healthy mix of comedy re-makes, crime drama and a little chap named Steven Spielberg. The Longest Yard ($157,798,925) kicked things off on Memorial Day weekend which, when it's all said and done, will turn out to be one of Adam Sandler's biggest hits ever. Just a few weeks later, Steven Spielberg unveiled, in the midst of Cruise/Holmes mania, his alien epic War Of The Worlds ($232,606,871) by absolutely crushing anything that came in its way. In between these two monsters, The Honeymooners snuck by with a measly $12,843,849. Sorry Cedric, but Jackie was the true entertainer. Paramount concluded the summer with an underwhelming but satisfactory performance out of The Bad News Bears ($32,685,773), but made up for it thanks to the surprise hit Four Brothers ($64,352,755). So what does it all mean? Well, let's just say I wouldn't be surprised if we see Sandler and Wahlberg buddy-cop it sometime in the near future. Remember, I called it first.
