First off, thanks to everyone who voted in Round 1. Now let's take a look at the results ...
• In the Superheroes' Girlfriends contest, Natalie Portman took down Blake Lively by a score of 65 percent to 35 percent. Sorry, Blake, but at least your margin of defeat here wasn't as wide as the Rotten Tomatoes scores for your respective movies ('Thor': 77 percent; 'Green Lantern': 27 percent).
• In the battle of Brawn vs. Brains, it was Brawn, in the form of Zoe Saldana, overcoming Brains, Freida Pinto, 69–31. Freida can probably rest easy, though, as 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' opened with over $50 million and is all but guaranteed a sequel, while 'Colombiana' barely broke $10 million.
• In our first Franchise contest, the Women of 'Transformers' absolutely demolished the Women of 'Final Destination,' 72–28, setting up a Clash of the Titans with the Women of 'X-Men.' Hard to find anything to help ease the pain the ladies of 'FD' are surely feeling, although there have been five 'Final Destination' flicks to only three 'Transformers' entries. Five is more than three -- a clear victory!
• Finally, it was Rosario Dawson over Penelope Cruz in the closest contest of the first round, a score of 59–41. Not to worry, Penelope -- 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' only made about $900 million more than 'Zookeeper.'
Round 2 is when things get really fun -- our top seeds now enter the tournament, and they are some heavy hitters indeed:
