Sugar Bits — I Am Legend Breaks Box Office Record

  • I Am Legend took the top spot at the box office over the weekend, breaking the previous record for the highest-grossing December opening, and bringing in $76.5 million. Congrats to Will, whose box-office pull is obviously still legend — wait for it — ary. — BuzzSugar
  • Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter welcomed their second child, a girl, on Saturday in London. Combined with Tim's Golden-Globe nomination, it's been quite a week for their family! — People
  • Alex Trebek, who suffered a minor heart attack last week, is back at home and has issued a statement thanking his fans for their outpouring of support and promising to return to Jeopardy in January. What is, we hope he gets well soon! — TMZ
  • Celine Dion performed her final Las Vegas show on Saturday night, in an emotional end to her five-year run. Next up for Celine — a world tour. — AP
  • John Travolta has apparently been fired from the upcoming movie version of Dallas, after two years of being attached to it, when producers decided to take the project in a more comedic direction. We guess even that a Golden-Globe nomination wasn't enough for them to keep him around. — Page Six

He is such a wonderful actor. And I am happy that it done so well for him. But I haven't seen it yet. This makes me want to see it even more.

I don't know about "Dallas: The Movie", and I certainly don't think it will do well if they only focus on the comedic aspects.

LOL, That's random about John Travolta being fired. Every single time I 've heard talk about hte Dallas movie, it would always mention John Travolta being it it, and now he's fired :ROTFL: congrats to Tim & Helena.

Can't wait to see Will's movie - great that he's got such a big opening. Nice to know that he can still bring in the masses! As for Travolta, guess they don't depend on him to bring in the big crowds. Dallas movie = comedy?? :rotfl: now that I gotta see!

I saw the movie last was slow in some places and it could have been better..they didn't follow the book exactly either. It was sad throughout the whole thing, their were some parts that were meant to be a little funny, but considering the movie's content I couldn't bring myself to laugh. There was one part in the movie that I think Will should earn an Oscar was so real that tears came to my eyes. Congrats Will on the record breaking weekend! :)

Wow, that is an opening to be proud of, congrats Will. He continuously shows how good and versatile of an actor he is. Will is one of those good actors you can never tag the word 'OVERRATED' to his abilities, he and Leonardo De Capiro are so underrated, they deserve an Oscar already.

Dallas... comedy? Blech. Not that I would've seen it with Travolta as JR anyway. But still. Comedy?

Wow, that is a huge opening for Will! Congrats! I saw Juno this weekend...I laughed out loud so many times, I cried, I LOVED THIS MOVIE! Every piece of the ensemble cast was just so spectacular in their role. There were 7 performances that blew me away in 1 movie!
