#1 They'll break even when it goes into international distribution.

#2 We had a thunderstrom roll thru San Antonio yesterday, which left us without electrical power for much of Sunday. We thought we'd kill a couple of hours, waiting for power to be restored by going to the nearest movie theater and taking in a movie - whatever was showing that interested us. This turkey was one of them, by the way. We looked over the list of movies showing ... and were completely underwhelmed. Not one of them interested us enough to pay $10 to see it. (We went home, after picking up some ice and groceries and read our Kindles, instead.)

#3 Most of the hollyweird production is now oriented to that world market where trashing America gets box office returns. Just like publishers turning down book pre-orders for a best seller because it's not about business anymore, it's about pushing your disdain for fly over country while parasitically living here.

There’s an economic concept known as a positional good in which an object is only valued by the possessor because it’s not possessed by others.

The term was coined in 1976 by economist Fred Hirsch to replace the more colloquial, but less precise “neener-neener”.

#6 and after Foxx's turn in Django Unchained, kinda nice to see him get some box office humility. Still happy with "getting paid to kill white people in a movie?"

#7 "Not one of them interested us enough to pay $10 to see it"

I know what you mean, Sgt. Mom. The last time I was in a movie theater was for either Armageddon or Apollo 13 (depending on which was released last). Some movies should be seen on the large screen, at least the first time.

What amazes me is they keep making this trash - surely they'll run out of suckers financial backers sometime. >:-(

#8 ..its a world market not America anymore for them. I'm with the Instaprof - End the Hollyweird Excise Tax* Cut and Subsidies!

* the 20 percent excise tax on motion picture theater gross revenues that existed between the end of World War II and its repeal in the mid-1950s.
