T.I. Salutes Fans for Making ‘Takers’ the #1 Movie in America


T.I.’s son, King showed his support for his daddy by getting the movie’s title carved into his hair. Is King the coolest little 5-year-old in the South?

T.I. saluted his fans for making Takers the #1 movie in America. Yesterday the movie industry jumped the gun by proclaiming The Last Exorcism #1 before the final receipts had even been counted.

Some industry insiders secretly blamed racism for the hasty estimates. Even after Takers was proven to be the box office winner, some movie websites dragged their feet on announcing the winner.

“They all wanted [Lionsgate movie studio] to win the box office three weeks in a row,” said a label exec who asked to remain anonymous.

The film’s excited star, T.I., was on the phone Monday reaching out to media and supporters to thank them — including a personal phone call to Sandrarose.com that went unanswered due to technical problems with my garbage HTC phone. (I ended up buying a MyTouch Slide last night as a result).

“It was so tight, they kinda misinformed people prematurely and gave out the wrong information,” T.I. said in a phone interview with MTV News. “But officially, as it stands right now, ‘Takers’ is the #1 movie in the country, contrary to popular belief. In my heart, I felt it would be.”

According to BoxofficeMojo, Sony Screen Gem’s “Takers” took in $20.51 million on opening weekend, while ‘Exorcism’ pulled in a respectable $20.36 million to take the #2 spot.

    T.I did his thing.

    As I said on the other post:

    I saw it yesterday

    The draw is definitely the eye candy..of every flavor ..Vanilla, dark chocolate (that’s idris)..butter pecan, butter scotch and white chocolate…that graces the screen. For the first 20 to 30 minutes of the movie it is the BIG “O”…..Idris is beautiful, flawless and perfect in every way. So perfect in fact I am convinced that God himself delivered Idris personally to earth on the tips of his Divine fingertips (imjussayin) I gasped out loud every time he swagged across the screen. I for one lusted for those 20 to 30 minutes…LUSTED with pure abandonment.

    The plot is elementary, premeditated, and at times insulting to one’s intelligence…but that’s ok….cause Idris……(swoons and falls off of desk chair)…….oh ok where was I? Michael Ealey, Chris Brown, T.I. and even the dudes that played those other dudes…..let’s just say…there is something for everyone…so though the plot lines sends you on a routine trip of Good vs. Evil and honor amongst thieves concept…..when you have beauty with you……you don’t mind taking the trip….even though you have been there before……you haven’t been there with Idris, Michael, Chris and TI to keep you company.

    I give this movie a 4 out of 5 stars…the four stars are all awarded due to the four beautiful men the casting director saw fit to cast. God Bless the casting director.

    By Hollywood standards, $21 million isn’t that much. Hell, The Expendables, starring Sly Stallone and the other aging action stars, did $35 million in its’ first week.

    I thought the movie was good. I got to see my favorite actor in it. Sorry it was Idris! lol. But, the movie didnt have that much competition. That exorcism movie didnt seem all too great to see. But, congrats to them….

    I really want to support these brothers, BUT I would like to see INTELLIGENT/SPIRITUAL ROLES, not criminal roles.

    To T.I : what did it profit you to gain the world, but you sold your soul?

    OFF TOPIC:
    Don’t get it twisted. The commercial for the ” National Medical Device Registry” ( a.k.a the verichip, positiveID, microchip, MARK OF THE BEAST, 666 ) is already out.

    ” They ” say the chip will only be for health purposes, BUT THEY ARE LYING. The company Verichip ( which produces the microchip) has already purchased another credit card monitoring company called Steel Vault ( PositiveID ).

    ” They ” intend to use this chip for watching EVERYTHING you do which includes BUYING AND SELLING.

    The folks who are at greater risk of taking this chip are:

    1. Entertainers who chase too much after money
    2. False prophets who want to keep “growing” their church for money
    3. Poor folks who are generational welfare recipients
    4. Atheist
    5. Folks who follow other false philosophies such as mormon and scientology, 5 %-ters, zeitgeist, etc
    6. Folks who are not ready to die for Jesus
    7. Elites who think they are wiser than God

    He who has an ear let him hear. DO NOT TAKE THE CHIP NO MATTER WHAT THEY TELL YOU. EVEN IF YOU AND YOUR CHILD ARE STARVING TO DEATH, DO NOT, DO NOT TAKE THAT CHIP.

    YOUVE BEEN WARNED.

  • http://dahoneyhive.blogspot.com ryand91

    I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, not so much the plot but more so the action, and the scenery, oh yeah and Idris’ underwear scene. Chris Brown was an executive producer so that was a good look for him. And congrats to the whole cast.

  • http://twitter.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    expendables also cost 80 million dollars to make. hollywood movies are not measured by there box office take they are measured by profitability. exorcism cost 1.5 million to make to making 20 million off jump that movie is a hit. takers cost about 10 million to film and they promoted it for about the same amount so after this week its profitable. bottom line we gotta come together to support black movies because if we dont support them no matter how bad they are then the good movie you are waiting for will never be made because the check writers dont believe we will support it.

  • http://dahoneyhive.blogspot.com ryand91

    @eastpointvet, I agree totally. So many of us complain about there not being any good black movies and when I say good black movie I don’t mean that bull that Tyler Perry puts off. But as soon as a movie with a black ensemble cast comes out most of us get it from Lil’ Rickie, the bootleg man. I try to go to support movies that show us in positive roles.

    Why did they do that to that boys head??? TI didn’t get Takers shaved in the side of his head smdh, ppoor baby isn’t even old enough to watch the movie yet :mad:

    Thank You. The movie is not about black or white and yes anyone could have played the role(s). Matt Dillion was a big part of the movie. As far as The Last Exercism most ppl didn’t want to see it because it’s suppose to be scary but only rated PG13.

    Good point.

    See, Lance (or whoever, the DJ) will be “going to school” and have “no criminal record” and chit. Thereby making him unattractive to the black women.

    Oh, and Kim will wind up with the “man” but one of the black women, will wind up with all the money. Might have to put a grotesquely ugly black chick in there just for that. Like E.P.V. said, women naturally hate unless they feel the other woman is uglier than them.

    By Hollywood standards, $21 million isn’t that much. Hell, The Expendables, starring Sly Stallone and the other aging action stars, did $35 million in its’ first week.
    ****************************************

    Lil Jaden did 55 milli the first week and I thought it was a flop. I had to learn most movies don’t take in 100 million the first week. Tyler’s movies stay in the 25 million range and he’s considered a success so these guys did pretty well all things considered.

    And by the way, T.I. has now become officially UGLY LOOKING just like kevin liles, jayz, and all the other behind closed doors devil worshippers.

    @ Daisey…I wasn’t expecting Othello….I got what I was looking for. I think it was a good movie. it will be in my collection when it becomes available.

    But even with that said they had opportuntities to go deeper in some areas….Idris’s sister….Zoe’s character’s demise…those parts would have grabbed my heart strings if they had been developed it a little more. Perhaps a flashback scene to give us more insight on T.I’s characters revenge motives? It had room to go deeper IMO…but choose instead to give us the Chris Brown chase scene(which I applaud him for because I understand he did the bulk of his own stunts…..)

    It was a good movie….had it been cast with anybody else….you would have had a been here down that moment.

    *ON TOPIC*
    Sandra, that is so hawt that TIP called you personally, to thank you for your help in the movie’s success. That speaks volumes.
    As soon as I heard that edged out “The Exorcism” by only $150,000…I realized how much every bit of marketing helped the movie reach the #1 spot.
    Also, love the fact TIP went personally to theatres buying tickets for people in line and concessions for people that already paid.

    Oh good for them so glad – I’m officially DONE today not a nice girl today :cry:

    Congrats to the Takers cast and the producer John Luessenhop…this movie was supposed to come out 5 years ago and it went through so many ups and downs. Screen Gems stood behind the producer when his son got really sick and he needed to take time off.People thought the film would never see the light of day..It’s so funny that Tyrese and Terrance Howard were in the original cast and TI and Idris took their parts. Then the film was put on hold when TI went to jail and Chris Brown got in trouble…So they deserve this :danban:

    Wasn’t a Star on Hollywood considered a honor and that you earned it? Why does Paris Hilton and the Olsen Twins have one? As much as I do like some celeb reality shows, there is no mystery anymore. We know what they are eating for dinner while still eating it.

    You played Sissy Spacek’s mother in the movie “Carrie”. Sorry didn’t mean to make light of what you are delivering. I just had a light bulb moment.

    @Al-Ameera and @MissHarlem I would like to see a Life After on all the female rappers. I would like to know what they are doing now, especially Sha Rock of the Funky Four + One More. She inspired me to rap when I was much younger.

    MC Lyte said something that was profound. She said that normally a female MC had to be introduce into game by a male rapper. How can you the male rappers support a female rapper when their music is misogynistic? Blank stare.

    @AM…I know it sounds like an oxymoron but Jay Z and Foxy Brown used to battle each other on the same song. Which was an excellent way to showcase how Foxy could flow hard as a dude but with sex appeal. Same for Lil Kim and Biggie (no matter who wrote the lyrics).
    But I have much respect for the ones that didn’t have to use sex appeal for attention as well.

    @CHB Do you like Queen Pen and Yo-Yo? I like both of them.

    Sidebar: Didn’t Lyte start the ruff neck craze?

    Queen Pen and Yo-Yo both were great. Yep, Lyte started it!

  • FloridaChick813

    NO this child is not the coolest kid in the south…. My son is :D

    But i’ll give him second runner up though, cause he is a lil cuuutttiiieeee!!!!!

  • Daisy

    @GG Zoe wasn’t needed IMO and TI told what happened n the past vs flashbacks (which I am not a fan of anyway) I see what u r saying though

  • prettypink

    @Daisy

    I think Zoe’s character helped show where TI’s animosity toward the group came from. I think he was a shady character anyway, but men are possesive over their money and women. TI was salty over both, and that was the fuel behind why he did what he did.

    Congratulations Tip and the whole cast of “Takers”! They can’t deny a great film.
