Disney prevails in photo finish

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It was a No. 1 weekend for The Walt Disney Co. after all. Final box office figures released Tuesday revealed that Disney’s basketball drama “Glory Road” earned more during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend than The Weinstein Co. animated film “Hoodwinked,” which had initially been reported as the top movie in the marketplace. “Glory” took in $16.92 million over the four days, with Monday ticket sales coming in higher than Disney had estimated. Only $48,187 separated the top two films. “No. 1 is one of the mantles that you strive for; you always think of it,” said Disney’s distribution head, Chuck Viane. “It’s nice to have bragging rights and even more important when filmmakers work so hard. The word of mouth seems to be spreading so quickly that we saw a nice surge in attendance.” “Hoodwinked” took in $16.87 million over the weekend, more than most box office prognosticators had expected but ultimately not enough to achieve No. 1 status. “The number that came in so far exceeded everyone’s expectations that I wouldn’t care if we were in 10th place,” said Gary Faber, executive vice president of marketing for The Weinstein Co. “It was just truly a surprise for everyone and playing for both kids and parents.” Had “Hoodwinked” been able to keep the top spot, it would have represented a significant win for brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who severed ties last year with Miramax Films, the studio that they founded and Disney bought. The Weinsteins left the Disney fold after numerous battles over the size of budget for their films. The Weinstein Co., which released its final figures late Tuesday afternoon, had actually underestimated the four-day numbers for “Hoodwinked” on Monday when it was thought to be the winner, making the victory by “Glory Road” all the more impressive. When initially reporting last weekend’s four-day box office numbers, studios used ticket-sale figures for Friday through Sunday and estimates for Monday. In reporting a typical three-day weekend, the estimate is for Sunday. Final figures are typically closely in line with the estimates, although there are rare times when they differ significantly. “This has happened in the past with these estimates,” said box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian, president of Exhibitor Relations Co. “When two films are this close to No. 1, that’s the only time when this becomes problematic.” While Disney was ultimately able to best the Weinsteins, “Hoodwinked” still benefited from the entire day it was viewed as as top dog, according to Dergarabedian. “Bragging rights are important, and once it was publicized as No. 1, it’s kind of hard to put that idea away,” he said. “In the minds of many, many people, it’s king for the day. Disney didn’t get that extra day of marketing. But everyone does their best to put out the most accurate possible estimate.” Greg Hernandez, (818) 713-3758 greg.hernandez@dailynews.comlast_img read more

Ice hockey club has hot run in Div. III tourney

first_img The 15th-seeded Cougars (11-11) gave second-seeded Wright State, which won the title, a battle through two periods before losing 6-1, then upset seventh-seeded Indiana, Pa., 4-3 in a sudden death shootout. They lost their last two games, 12-2 loss to 13th-seeded Central Florida and 8-2 to 14th-seeded Pittsburgh. “We were not expecting to go to the nationals,” said Schrage, who guided COC to a fifth-place ACHA finish three years ago. But there they were – plagued by injuries, lacking depth and tired from a six-hour, red-eye flight to Florida. “At that point,” Schrage said. “We were running on pure adrenaline.” The Cougars, the only junior college and California team in the tournament, went into the third period against Wright State trailing just 3-1. They beat Indiana on freshman forward Todd Stelnick’s goal to win 4-3. Another miracle on ice? Not quite, but College of the Canyons’ ice hockey club team gave it its best shot after sneaking into the American College Hockey Association Div. III National Championship at Fort Myers, Fla. The Cougars advanced to the tournament after Cal State Northridge, Texas and Texas Tech were ousted for using ineligible players, and UC Irvine wasn’t permitted entry because it had a first-year program. “We just kept getting bumped up the list,” coach Jim Schrage said.

My mind is there, but my legs can’t get me there.’ “After that game, it was like, ‘Let’s just go home now.’ ” Said Denes: “All these teams had 20 to 22 skaters and a bunch of guys on the bench waiting to play. “We were skating 10 guys for four days in a row. That’s what killed us. Matter of degrees: COC stayed at the same hotel as Central Florida, and the players met at the pool. “One of the guys had a bandage on his hand over in the spa,” Denes said. “He asked us, ‘Hey, any of you guys pre-med over there?’ ” Denes’ answered, “We don’t even have our AAs yet.” League of their own: COC’s women’s basketball team (20-11) was eliminated by top-seeded Mt. San Antonio 78-66 Saturday in Walnut. The Cougars made their 11th playoff appearance in 12 years after winning their eighth Western State Conference title. Freshman guard Leslie Ortiz (Sylmar High), Melissa Tachias (Poly of Sun Valley) and Janette Galindo (Burroughs of Burbank) were first-team all-conference selections, and 12th-year coach Greg Herrick was honored as Coach of the Year for the fifth time. Hina Kimitete and Facion Edwards (Quartz Hill) received honorable mention.

Taking to the skies

first_imgA Southwest Airlines 737 makes its final approach to Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport, which has become a popular alternative to LAX. Photo by John McCoy / Staff Photographer It has been so successful that Los Angeles World Airports officials want to create up to eight more FlyAway stations around the county to encourage travelers to use other airports and reduce traffic congestion around LAX. Bob Hope Airport in Burbank – easily accessible to Valley travelers – has become even more popular with an expansion of flights to the East Coast. Southwest – the airport’s biggest user – SkyWest and JetBlue airlines carried more than 5.5 million passengers through Burbank in 2005. Although city-owned Palmdale Regional Airport is capable of handling 300,000 passengers a year, major commercial airlines have resisted flying out of the Antelope Valley, saying it is too far from Los Angeles to attract passengers. However, lawmakers are pushing a plan to regionalize Los Angeles’ airports, reviving hopes that Palmdale could become a viable option for Southern California travelers.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Already one of the world’s five busiest airports, Los Angeles International Airport is preparing for a new age of bigger jets – and coping with increased security threats – with a $4 billion makeover negotiated by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. The renovation deal resolved lawsuits over a larger modernization plan and includes plans to lengthen and separate runways that can accommodate new jumbo jets carrying more passengers to and from Southern California’s landmark airport. At the same time, passenger traffic at the airport will be limited to 79.8 million a year. Debate on other elements of the plan remains open, including creation of an off-site terminal where all passengers and baggage would be processed.center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 Other local airports are also making provisions for growth. Van Nuys Airport, in the heart of the San Fernando Valley and ranked as the world’s busiest general-aviation airport, is wrestling with a master plan that could open it to more business from corporate jets. At the Van Nuys FlyAway terminal, a badly needed expansion will add 800 parking spots to the lot at Woodley Avenue and Saticoy Street. The FlyAway opened in 1975, and runs an average of 102 buses a day between Van Nuys and LAX. Some 750,000 passengers a year travel from Van Nuys to LAX, paying $6 for a round-trip ticket and $4 a day to park. There was some controversy over construction work on the Van Nuys FlyAway, which officials say was resolved.last_img read more
