"Burn After Reading" at the top of box office

September 23 2008

The new motion picture directors brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, "Burn After Reading" (Burn After Reading) topped the American box office, dropping thriller "Bangkok Dangerous" (Bangkok Dangerous) at the first right on to the eighth row.

Over the past weekend the film grossed $ 19.4 million, nearly half a million ahead of "family hunters" (Tyler Perry's Family That Preys) directed by Tyler Perry. In third place with $ 16.5 million insurance fund the work of John Avneta "Righteous Kill" (Righteous Kill), with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in the lead roles. The cast of Coen, by the way, no less than spectacular. As many as three stars, and all three - generations of idols and sex symbols: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich. Film genre all define differently - who calls him a "black comedy" who "spy comedy" and who (Clooney, for example) - "simply ridiculous movie." Some even managed to see in it a political subtext. Whatever it was, but the picture seems to have failed. In late August, its premiere took place at the opening of the 65 th Venice Film Festival, and now, less than a month before she won the hearts of viewers. Less than a year after the resounding success of previous Coen film, as they took something completely opposite of its dark and bloody history of "the elderly do not belong here" (No Country for Old Men). When journalists at a press conference in Venice, began to ask directors why they decided suddenly, mood swings, Joel Coen said he did not see this quite surprising. "We decided to make a spy movie because earlier we did not have them - he said. - You could make a movie about dogs, or about space, but we settled on the spies, that's all." Script started writing as an experiment - just wanted to write something about these people. "
