Juno Was the Real No. 2 Movie Last Weekend, Not Legend

Though the initial estimates on Sunday put I Am Legend as the No. 2 movie at the box office this past weekend with $16.4 million and Juno in the No. 3 spot with $16.2, the actual numbers indicate that this order is really reversed! Thus, Juno is the No. 2 movie in the country, beating out the big Will Smith thriller I Am Legend at the box office. Hooray for Juno!

In related news, Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody just won the Critics' Choice Award for her screenplay. She's currently working on her next project, a teenage horror movie called Jennifer's Body, starring Megan Fox and produced by Juno director Jason Reitman. Now there's the news that Girlfight writer/director Karyn Kusama has signed on to direct.

Cody, whose favorite horror movie is apparently Rosemary's Baby, recently told the MTV Movies Blog that Jennifer's Body is "a horror movie, and it’s also about teenagers...It’s a lot darker [than Juno], and it also has comedic elements. Horror is my favorite genre — and like Juno, I like horror movies." I can't wait to see the next project to come out of Cody's awesome imagination.

Oh, and Juno was great. I love Ellen Page, she is going to be big (not literally, but you know)...

A female-driven horror film? Count me in! It's about time people (men) realize that women can write and direct horror just as well as guys can. *and that was the end of my girl-power moment

I saw Juno TWICE this past weekend. It was so good. I'll probably see it once more before it's out of theaters.
