Scared Stiff (English Movie) 1953
Scared Stiff is a 1953 American musical comedy film directed by George Marshall and starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. One of the 17 films made by the Martin and Lewis team, it was released on April 27, 1953 by Paramount Pictures. Scared Stiff was Carmen Miranda's final film. The Portuguese-Brazilian musical star died of a heart attack, two years later, in August 1955.


WELL THE SUMMER ENDED WITH A WHIMPER. STUDIOS JUST DIDN'T SEEM TO BE INTERESTED IN TURNING OUT ANY NEW PRODUCT FOR THE LAST FEW WEEKS. THIS WEEKEND DID $47 MILLION ONLY WHICH IS UP A BIT FROM LAST WEEKENDS $45 MILLION. STILL PRETTY SAD. THIS WAS THE WORST LABOUR DAY WEEKEND SINCE 2000. THE TOP SPOT WAS HELD FOR A THIRD WEEKEND BY 'THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD' WHICH ONLY MANAGED A $10 MILLION, AGAIN, TAKE AT THE GATE. SO FAR IT HAS ONLY COLLECTED A TOTAL OF $54 MILLION.

'ANNABELLE: CREATION' CONTINUED IN SECOND PLACE IN IT'S FOURTH WEEKEND. ANOTHER $7 MILLION BOXFFICE TAKE THIS WEEKEND AND THE INTERNATIONAL TAKE BROUGHT THE WORLDWIDE FIGURE TO OVER $253 MILLION. THE DOMESTIC TAKE IS AT $84 MILLION. NOT BAD FOR A LOW BUGET THRILLER.

IN THIRD PLACE, CAME THE THRILLER CALLED 'WIND RIVER' WHICH TOOK IN $5 MILLION.

THIS WEEKEND On the final frame of summer, and the last for this current box office dry spell, the North American marketplace witnessed the top ten films Friday-to-Sunday selling just $47.6M worth of tickets, the worst for the Labor Day session since the $44.7M of 2000. And ticket prices have risen substantially since then. Studios opted not to open any major new release leaving audiences with two options - see older films they've been hearing about, or skip the multiplex altogether.

For the third weekend in a row, the action title The Hitman's Bodyguard remained at number one and this time grossed an estimated $10.3M over the Friday-to-Sunday portion of the holiday frame which was almost identical to last weekend's take. The total for Lionsgate has risen to a solid $54.9M.

Annabelle: Creation took the runner-up spot for the third consecutive time collecting an estimated $7.3M in its fourth weekend, off only 5%, pushing Warner Bros. up to $89M passing the $84.3M of its 2014 predecessor. The new fright flick will try to become the only film from August 2017 to break $100M, but that will be no easy feat with Stephen King's It expected to open huge on Friday stealing away the target audience. Global is now $253.4M. The four low-cost movies from the Conjuring franchise have now collectively grossed a jaw-dropping $1.15 billion worldwide. That's an average gross of $287M with an average budget of $21M per film.

It was just pocket change for the rest of the movies in the top ten. The thriller Wind River took in an estimated $5.9M, up 27%, giving The Weinstein Co. $18.3M to date. The distributor's animated film Leap! followed with an estimated $4.9M inching up 3% with a new cume of a weak $11.4M.

The star-driven pic Logan Lucky climbed 4% to an estimated $4.4M for Bleecker Street which has banked $21.5M. Bumped out of the top five in its seventh weekend was the Warner Bros. war thriller Dunkirk with an estimated $4.1M, up 5%, with $178.8M thus far. China opened big this weekend with $30M, 17% from IMAX screens, raising the international haul to $280M and global to $458.8M with Japan to open next weekend.

Sony took the next two spots. Spider-Man: Homecoming shot up 29% to an estimated $3.7M giving the super hero flick $323M overall. The webslinger pic still has a shot at bumping from the all-time domestic Top 50 list Batman v Superman which did $330.4M. Animated comedy The Emoji Movie grossed an estimated $2.5M, off 2%, for a $79.3M sum.

Universal rounded out the top ten with a pair of very different hit movies. Like most films with kid appeal, Despicable Me 3 rose this weekend shooting up 37% to an estimated $2.4M. Its new totals now stand at $257.9M in North America and a staggering $994M worldwide. The studio's comedy Girls Trip was off 3% to an estimated $2.3M boosting the cume to $111.6M. It has now beaten recent R-rated female-led summer comedies Trainwreck and Spy and is days away from passing Bad Moms as well.

With Summer 2017 coming to a close, the top-grossing films domestically are all comic book movies - Wonder Woman at $408.9M, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at $389.7M, and Spider-Man Homecoming at $323M. Globally however, the top three Hollywood giants are Despicable 3 at $994M, Guardians with $862M, and Wonder Woman at $812.6M. Spidey opens in China next weekend so it hopes to climb past $800M as well by the end of its worldwide run.

The top ten films grossed an estimated $47.6M from Friday-to-Sunday which was down 29% from last year's Labor Day frame when Don't Breathe remained at number one with $15.8M; and down 21% from 2015's holiday when War Room climbed into the top spot with $9.5M.
