Xzibit’s ‘Gridiron Gang’ Tops Weekend Box Office

Posted 20 September 2006 | | No Comments »

Despite mixed reviews from critics, Gridiron Gang captured the number one spot at the box office.

The inspirational drama, which stars rapper Xzibit and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as football coaches of a Los Angeles juvenile detention center football team, raked in an estimated $15 million in ticket sales to secure the top position.

Gridiron Gang’s number one opening echoes another recently released football feature, Invincible.

The Mark Wahlberg film, which occupied the top spot for two weeks, placed sixth by taking in $3.9 million over the weekend, according to reports.

Although profits and attendance have increased since last year, this marks the second consecutive weekend that movie studios have dealt with less than stellar results at the box office.

The top 10 films for the weekend of Sept. 15-17 read as follows:

1. Gridiron Gang $15 million.
2. The Black Dahlia $10.4 million
3. Everyone’s Hero $6.2 million
4. The Last Kiss $4.7 million
5. The Covenant $4.7 million
6. Invincible $3.9 million
7. The Illusionist $3.8 million
8. Little Miss Sunshine $3.4 million
9. Hollywoodland $2.7 million
10. Crank $2.7 million

IGN Interview: Xzibit

Posted 16 September 2006 | | No Comments »

The Gridiron Gang co-star talks about rapping with The Rock and seeking success without pimping his career.

September 15, 2006 – Rappers often get a bad rap (no pun intended) when it comes to acting. For the most part, these are guys who have established themselves as tough guys and gangsters, so when time comes to reveal sensitivity, warmth or humor, they’re generally raked over the coals by critics and dismissed by fans who don’t want to see their favorite stars act fragile.

Xzibit has been defying expectations for more than a decade now. After establishing a prodigious music career in the late 1990s, the rapper (real name: Alvin Joiner) slowly moved into acting, focusing on comedy and drama roles that would challenge his talent but not transform him into something he’s not. Subsequently, he became the host of MTV’s hugely successful show Pimp My Ride, which introduced him as the unexpected benefactor who transforms teens’ jalopies into jet-setting supercars. His latest role is the assistant coach to The Rock in Gridiron Gang, which retells the true-life story of a youth detention counselor who inspires his charges by establishing a football program.

IGN recently spoke to Xzibit at the press day for Gridiron Gang, where he talked about his own upbringing, and about seeking success as an actor one role at a time.
