Hard-R rated comedy Neighbors is off to a very strong start as it has the potential to top $50 million in its opening weekend. The film’s marketing campaign has been stellar and the positive reviews from critics have only contributed to raise audience awareness. If it manages to rise above $50 million it will launch stronger than The Hangover ($45 million) and perhaps come close to what Ted ($54 million) managed to do a few years ago.
Here are the 85th Academy Award Nominees announced this morning by Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone. Seth MacFarlane will host the show on Sunday, February 2013. Although many people in Canada and the USA know MacFarlane his International standing is not exactly on the same level yet many might potentially tune in just to see how the creator of Family Guy/American Dad and this year’s huge comedy hit Ted fares hosting the movie industry’s biggest celebratory show.
