Entourage Already Broke Spider-Man's Box Office Record

I think I just found yet another reason why I love HBO's hit series Entourage. During the second episode of Season 3 we are told that the projected numbers for Vincent Chase's Aquaman -- directed by none other than James Cameron -- were predicting a better box office weekend than Columbia Pictures' Spider-Man.

Now, we all know that Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest has finally broken Spidy's record this weekend (read all about it HERE), but that doesn't mean Aquaman didn't do it first.


HBO's Variety Prank for Aquaman


I guess we should have seen this coming. Entourage mentions Variety so often, and calls it a 'High School Paper', that we should have expected HBO to finally use the print for its own purposes; or should I say fun little pranks?

One of our readers, 'Sarah,' recently alerted us to an ad placed in Variety by HBO that announces how their fictitious film, Aquaman, broke Spider-Man's box office record.

It turns out that tons of people were at least temporarily fooled and even James Cameron's friends and family called the director to congratulate him about a film they never heard of.

Classic!


Stay tuned for updates.
