Sandra Bullock shines in '09 box-office

MUMBAI: According to US theatre owners, Sandra Bullock shone as 2009‘s top Hollywood star at the box-office after the actress scored with audiences after nearly a two-year absence from screens.


A Quigley Publishing Co.‘s annual list released on Thursday of top money-making stars, based on a poll of hundreds of theatre executives had Bullock beat stars like George Clooney and Denzel Washington on the strength of her roles in The Proposal and The Blind Side.


While The Proposal made $315 million at worldwide box-offices after its June release, The Blind Side made $193 million in the US and Canada alone since its 20 November release.


Bullock, who also starred in All About Steve with its $34 million take in the US and Canada is the eighth woman to top Quigley‘s list of top money-making stars which the company has put out each year since 1932.


Quigley Publishing said the list does not rank stars only on how much their films made but on what theatre owners say about who attracts audiences on their star power alone.


The last woman to top Quigley‘s list was Julia Roberts in 1999. She failed to make Quigley‘s 2009 top 10 this year, after her turn in romantic comedy Duplicity bombed at the box-office.

Rangoon... What a debacle!

Every filmmaker wants his own ‘all time classic’ and it is best not to confuse such a filmmaker with a realistic, practical maker with business sense.

Irada....Docu-thriller?

The title Irada comes across as B-grade 1970s and it has little relevance to the theme of the film, which is honourable. The film is about an ecological problem, almost a disaster. The issue dealt with here, though, is not as infamous or as well known as the Bhopal gas tragedy.
