American Idol” winner Carrie Underwood recently tried her hand at acting, appearing in Soul Surfer. She also once showed up in an episode of “How I Met Your Mother.” Whether the country starlet will shape her brief Hollywood foray into a legitimate acting career remains to be seen, but she certainly appears to have some momentum going for her.

A word from Carrie: “Everybody knows what’s going on. Even if they don’t watch it they know what’s happening.”

That’s right, America – the demigod from the UK known as Russell Brand has finally “hit it big,” with both the number one and number two movies in America featuring his tricky-to-spell name on the poster. Of course, he picked a couple of pretty mediocre earners with which to earn this badge of honor, with the badly-reviewed comedy remake Arthur and the badly-reviewed comedy Easter CGI rabbit movie Hop. And I don’t just mean the reviews are mediocre: the films earned only $12.6 million and $21.6 million, respectively. No, you’re not misreading that. Plus,Hop has been the number one movie for two weekends in a row. Maybe it will keep plugging along until Easter.

Rounding out the weekend was the pretty excellent Hanna, which managed third place with $12.3 million, and Soul Surfer, the inspirational sports version of Jaws, in fourth place with $11.1 million. I’ve said it for years: If you want to make bank at the box office, you’ve got to have more than one person getting eaten by a shark. (Box Office Mojo)

If there was one critique of Soul Surfer‘s teaser trailer, it was that the film didn’t look nearly gross enough. Problem solved!

This new look at the film finally gets around to showing that shark attack that costs the protagonist her arm… but not her love of surfing. Did you hear that, sharks?! You can eat our arms but not our spirits!! Anyway, whereas the earlier trailer was wholesome and full of hugs, this new one spends way too much time showing off that nasty arm stub. Gross. It’s times like these that I hate movie-blogging. Some of us are trying to eat Cheetos over here.

Soul Surfer, the true story about Bethany Hamilton and her survival of a shark attack that cost her her arm, has a trailer. And it looks…wholesome. In fact, nowhere in the 1:14 clip does it reference or even acknowledge the fact that something might go wrong. It’s all surfing and hugs and fireworks. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise considering it’s an inspirational story featuring the likes of Dennis Quaid, Helen Hunt, AnnaSophia Robb, Carrie Underwood, and no less than Hercules himself, Kevin Sorbo. One would think they would at least allude to the fact that this cute blonde girl is going to get her arm bitten off by a shark. It’s not like they can use that as a twist in the film; it was a national news story. The working title of this film was basically The Movie about the Girl Who Got Her Arm Bitten off by a Shark, so it’s unlikely that anyone will be caught off guard when girlfriend loses a limb.

I’m sure as we get closer to the April 15 release date, we’ll be privy to the darker half of the film. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer for Blue Crush Lite! (Coming Soon)
