It appears that America has survived another summer blockbuster season, with the last of the summer blockbusters gently fading into the sunset. In the number one spot this weekend, we have The Help, which capitalized on weak openings for some other movies and nabbed a healthy $20.5 million despite pretty bad reviews.

What are some of those “weak openings”? For one, we have Spy Kids: All The Time in the World, which somehow managed to only gross $12 million in its opening weekend, despite audiences’ well-documented love for being assaulted by various strange smells. The other “big” movie to open this weekend was Conan the Barbarian, which only managed a $10 million opening, putting it one spot behind Spy Kids at number4.  Somehow, Jay Leno must be responsible for this. The other big movie to open this weekend was the well-reviewed-but-not-well-attended Fright Night, which landed at number 6 with $7.9 million. (The Playlist)

Committed To Making Quality Movies, Ricky Gervais Joins ‘Spy Kids 4′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/committed-to-making-quality-movies-ricky-gervais-joins-spy-kids-4/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/committed-to-making-quality-movies-ricky-gervais-joins-spy-kids-4/#comments Sat, 07 May 2011 01:56:53 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211053 If anyone asks, "were you the robot dog in 'Spy Kids 4'," Gervais will just tell them "that was Steve Coogan." It won't work, but he can try.

At the now infamous “Golden Globes,” host Ricky Gervais took a shot at Tim Allen. Well, it looks like Gervais has gone 180 degrees, accepting a role that Allen would have absolutely been down for. Way to keep us all on our toes, Mr. Brent.

Gervais will voice robotic dog Argonaut in this summer’s Spy Kids: All The Time In The World. It’s probably a day’s worth of work for a ton of money, and at least his face won’t be exposed to the camera like co-stars Jessica Alba and Joel McHale. If anyone asks, “were you the dog in Spy Kids 4,” Gervais can just tell them “that was Steve Coogan.” If the person responds, “it didn’t sound anything like Steve Coogan, more like you,” Gervais can awkwardly walk away without addressing him further.

Here’s what Gervais actually said about the role:

“Not only am I lending my voice to Spy Kids but they can keep it,” said Gervais. “I’m sick of it.”

Self-deprecatalicious. The film robo-barks its way into theaters August 19th. Meanwhile, on May 19th you can catch Gervais in the season finale of “The Office” on NBC. (Hollywood Reporter)
