Arnold really should try his hand at another genre. Maybe dramatic period pieces.

EnviroDude: There was so much potential for the lil' old grandmother and her lines. It could have been epic.


Does she rap? I'll see it if she raps.

jimzdat: I guess as long as you view it as a "action-comedy" and not a serious flick, you may not be too disappointed.


At least I'm warned. I hate it when I go in thinking it's a straight film and turns out to be a comedy. See also Hudson Hawk and The Fifth Element, the latter I ended up liking but the goofiness was jarring.

/multipass

Anyway, movies like these do better overseas but that's deceiving because of taxes and stuff, the studios wind up not seeing as much as is reported. You could have an entire bachelor's degree on movie math and still not understand it all.

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!


The butthurt is strong with this one.

Confabulat: Whether or not it turns a profit, I'd think the perception in Hollywood would be that this movie is a failure. I'm sure Arnie will bounce back with Kindergarten Cop 2 or something soon enough though

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!


Dumb movies like that make a lot of money overseas. I'm convinced that Hollywood often gives the green on movie projects with international box office receipts in mind.

It cost nothing to make and will probably do really well on home video.

chuggernaught: We ended up seeing This is 40. About 20 minutes too long, but had some great one liners, extremely uncomfotable funny moments, and a nice little story all in all. Plus I appreciated Leslie Mann showing her breasticles.


You're telling me that a Judd Apatow film went on too long?!?!?

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.
