‘Bridesmaids,’ ‘Community’ Paintball Finale And The ‘Buffy’ Reboot In Today’s Twitter-Wood

Bridesmaids” is almost here, and it looks like director Paul Feig is getting some pre-wedding jitters, if his recent tweets are any indication. Of course, he’s got nothing to worry about — early buzz is very positive, with many members of the Twitter-Wood community already rallying behind the Kristen Wiig comedy.

But critical acclaim doesn’t always translate to financial success, of course. Hollywood producer Jeff Katz hopped on Twitter and went over the latest tracking data for this summer’s hottest movies, and some of the results may surprise you.

Plus, if you thought Sarah Michelle Gellar’s anti-“Buffy” reboot stance would slow the movie’s progress down, you’re in for a rude awakening: screenwriter Whit Anderson says it’s very much still on track.

I’m @roundhoward and this is Twitter-Wood for May 12, 2011.

Tracking Data, Part 1: @KatzMoney New tracking is in. KUNG-FU PANDA 2 and X-MEN: FIRST CLASS numbers are shockingly soft. Have to think both will get a bounce post-PIRATES.
-Jeff Katz, producer (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”)

Tracking Data, Part 2: @KatzMoney Also, HANGOVER 2 is beating PIRATES 4’s numbers and BRIDESMAIDS clearly missed a wide-open opportunity to try and sell to male audiences.
