Wild Hogs Leads Weekend Charge

3161 Picture2The movies to see this week are Zodiac and Avenue Montaigne. Here are Metacritic's numbers for Zodiac, and Avenue Montaigne. The movie is an utterly delightful escapist French piffle.

Here's a NYDN followup on how much David Fincher demanded of his Zodiac actors. The results speak for themselves. UPDATE: Here's Newsweek's interview with Robert Graysmith.

Here's Nicole Sperling's assessment of the upcoming weekend boxoffice. Here are Fandango's top five weekly advance ticket sales (as of 3/02/07 9:00 a.m. PST). I have to assume 300 will take off like a rocket when it opens next week.
