This just in: The illusion of safety.
Let’s not fuck around, shall we? Robin Hood‘s numbers are terrible if you consider domestic the whole shebag. Universal is going to have to struggle a bit to get the picture anything much more than $100, which is not a gimme. Though it will not collapse like it, Robin Hood is only above A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s opening by four million and change. Of course, Robin Hood isn’t as front loaded by nature, but if the film cost $237 Million, then… well. But with a picture like this it’s all about trumpeting the international. And if this picture is already at $200 Million all in, there’s that. If those numbers are on the money, then Universal didn’t necessarily make a bad investment, and Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott may yet work together again. I like to think they’ll do a civil war film next, with a trailer cut to Limp Bizkit’s “Nookie.” The Scott oeuvre needs more cannons and Fred Durst. I’m sorry (I’m fucking around a bit).
Letters to Juliet was stronger than Just Right, but even though Fox News will make you paranoid about it, there are still more white people in America than anyone else. The Latifah movie has not been generating much word, but I have heard good things about Juliet, so perhaps one or both can coast for a bit. Amanda Seyfried is a starlet in search of a following. Boobs.
