Martin Scorsese has got another hit. The Departed was the #1 movie at the box office over the weekend making $27 million. It beat out future classics such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and Dane Cook’s Employee of the Month.
An inquisitive reporter asked Dane why people should even watch his movie. He said his movie had Jessica Simpson’s boobs. He then started to say “boobs” louder and louder until he heard someone laugh. That wasn’t a laugh Dane, that was me farting.
In related news, Andy Lau, the actor from Infernal Affairs which The Departed is a remake of, gave Martin Scorsese’s new movie an 8 out of 10.
Lau thinks ”the effect of combining the two female characters in the original into one isn’t as good as in the original,” according to Tam [Andy Lau’s spokeswoman].
She also said the veteran Hong Kong actor contrasted his approach to his role with Damon’s.
”He said he focused on his character’s psychology, and that the character didn’t look like a bad guy on the surface,” Tam said, whereas Damon’s portrayal showed his character as an obvious bad guy.
