U.S. critics have been wondering how Mr. Madonna, Guy Ritchie, will fare with his latest film Rocknrolla when it opens Stateside in October. But it seems Ritchie has already recovered from his 2002 bomb, Swept Away.
BBC: Guy Ritchie’s latest picture RocknRolla has scored a number one debut in the UK and Ireland box office with initial takings of £1.56m.
The action-packed flick fended off the challenge of Abba musical film Mamma Mia! which remained at two in its ninth week of release…
