Clints Bits – 16/7

Clints Bits – 16/7
Caffeinated Clint

You guys in the states are presently at the preliminary end of a marathon between rival box office blockbusters, and tomorrow – for all intents and purposes – marks the start of the Australian leg. Ok, so essentially the start of the blockbusters started with “X Men”, “The Matrix Reloaded” and “Hulk”, but since they were released so early on – April onwards – and at least one of those films ran out of gas only a week after it’s release, let’s say “Terminator 3 : Rise of the Machines” is the start of the biggies. But tell you what, don’t spend all your money on big-timers like T3, throw some money back into the Australian market and check out Tony Martin’s “Bad Eggs”, which starts a week from tomorrow. Who knows, your help may buy Tony’s next cotton steeplechaser. Anyone even thought of this slogan for an ad campaign, being that it’s up against T3, “Rise of the Eggs”?

  • According to Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith, The Brad Pitt/Nicole Kidman spy comedy “Mr and Mrs Smith” is targeting an October start. It is about a bored married couple who discover they are enemy assassins hired to kill each other.
