Negromancer News Bit and Bites for August 2 2011

More stuff for me and stuff for you:

All weekend, it looked like a box office draw between Cowboys & Aliens and The Smurfs. Now, the excellent Box Office Mojo has the final results and the cowboys versus alien action flick has won the 7/29-7/31/2011 box office race (in North America, at least).  Still, the fact that a movie based on a half-forgotten 1980s, Saturday morning cartoon did so well has had some scratching their heads.  Me?  I'm kinda surprised.

Also, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide.  It is also the highest grossing Potter flick in North America.


Film School Rejects reports on Marvel Studios' gradual movement towards a film based around their Doctor Strange character.


Alexendre Aja's career will continue to be defined by remaking low-budget horror movies from the 70s and 80s.


J.J. Abrams talks to The Guardian about how he got together with Steven Spielberg for Super 8.
