I dont know how many of my friends went to see that movie the first night even though it was disney and didn't have the usual sex, violence, special effects that would otherwise draw them to the box office.
There is a certain "cool" aura around the idea of a pirate that kids/young adults can relate with i guess.
I thought it was terrible and asked for my money back afterward.
Was it this thread that TMOGE ripped geewiz a new one about this past weekend's movie earnings?
I remember something about geewiz saying Clerks 2 will make alot of money and TMOGE came in and just shred him to pieces.
No, that was the lady in the water thread, and I ripped HIM to pieces, but you wouldn't know, because nobody reads my retaliations because you don't want to admit to yourselves that I can hold my own against anybody.
Yeah Clerks didn't even get top 5 in the box office. Little Man, on its second week, even beat it. Jeez. Movie sales depend solely on advertising. That's all there is to it. Doesn't matter how good the movie is, if you make a McDonalds toy out of it, put commercials on all the major networks and previews before every movie, people will flock.
You guys wanna know why the movie is doing so good? Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp. Most of the people who want to see that movie are just horny lusting girls who's pants are soaking when they come out of the theater because of those two.
You know what it's time for. Your Pirates update.....
Pirates grossed yet another $20 million this weekend. Pirates has now grossed $358 million in the U.S. It is now ELEVENTH on the all time list in the U.S. It just passed Finding Nemo, LOTR two towers, and the legendary Jurassic Park.
Next up: Passion of the Christ.
Did I mention Pirates is easily the top grossing movie of the year by more than $100 million? ("Cars" is 2nd with $234 million).
POTC2 is just a solid flick. its one of the few summer blockbusters that actually delivers. it kills SUperman and XMen. just kills them. and it does it despite the charisma challenged Orlando Bloom playing a main character.
