Malcolm D. Lee’s sequel, The Best Man Holiday’ with Monica Calhoun, Morris Chestnut and Taye Diggs all returning from the original, should recoup its modest production cost of $17m and gain a little more upon opening in North America this weekend. The original, ‘The Best Man’, which was Lee’s debut feature 14 years ago, won best director and screenplay at the Black Reel Awards.
Meanwhile, with limited competition, ‘Thor: The Dark World’ will easily retain the No.1 position with a moderate hold around the $40m mark. It opened last weekend with $85.7m, slightly below market expectations.
Alexander Payne’s Cannes title, Nebraska, starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte, arrives in the speciality market with a platform release in New York and Los Angeles. Dern, who won best actor at Cannes, is one of the frontrunners for an Oscar nomination.generic cialis greece order generic cialis online canada cialis online belgiumbuy cialis tablets uk
