jimzdat: Wife and I went to see Last Stand the other night - while not the greatest epic film of all time by any stretch, there were a few times when everyone in the theater was laughing.I guess as long as you view it as a "action-comedy" and not a serious flick, you may not be too disappointed.
coco ebert: I'm noticing a lot of aging actors doing action movies- Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Willis, etc. I wonder if studios are consciously trying to reach out to baby boomers and it's failing or if these guys are just institutions that are able to get what movie they want produced regardless of age.
coeyagi: sidcart42: It's Sunday morning.Time for the people who willfully ignore the current climate of International/DVD/Blu-Ray/Netflix/Television/Amazon/iTunes/Basic Budget Analysis to gleefully declare something a failure.Good validating, Subby. You're tougher than Arnold!Facepalm. The budget is between 30-45 million according to wikipedia, which seems like it would be easy to recoup. But that doesn't take into account the marketing costs, which sometimes doubles the budget. So, let's say 80 million. This film will be 10th place this weekend. IN ITS OPENING WEEKEND. I am guessing that it will not make 10 million this weekend, it will probably make 8 million or less. The second weekend, you can expect between a 40-60% decline in revenue, and the same for the next 4 weeks after that. 8 + (8x0.4) + (8x0.4x0.4) + (8x0.4x0.4x0.4) + (8x0.4x0.4x0.4x0.4) + (8x0.4x0.4x0.4x0.4x0.4) = 8 + 3.2 + 1.28 + 0.512 + 0.2048 + 0.08192 = about 13.3 million, in its entire theatrical run. Let's say my math is off by 50%, that is still only about 20 million. Do you think that the rental / purchase market is going to recoup 60 million dollars?Oh SH*T! Math strikes again!
Crewmannumber6: chuggernaught: From what I understand it's written as kind of a spoof of Ahnahld's age.The it was marketed poorly. It looks bad, but still not as bad as Parker. What kind of retard wants to see that after it's ads>
