Chatting with Billy V: August 31, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hollywood is finishing its summer with record revenue but the lowest actual movie attendance in five years. North American ticket sales the first weekend in May through the upcoming Labor Day weekend should come in at about $4.35 billion — $100 million more than the record set last year. But attendance is down -- Through Labor Day, the actual number of tickets sold during the summer season about 552 million.

Famed New York Knicks fan Adam Sandler has drafted a division rival for his upcoming movie Jack and Jill, as newly-acquired Boston Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal will appear as himself in the comedy. Shaq is set to make "a very small cameo" in the film, which stars Sandler in dual roles as twins and Katie Holmes as his wife.
