I'd say it was always popular, but clearly Walking Dead is a phenomenon all to itself.

Oh definitely it's the biggest of the lot, but going right back I'd say 28 Days Later marked the beginning of the zombie revival. Or more broadly speaking, the whole apocalyptic obsession we seem to be in the grip of and enjoying with no end in sight. It's not just tv and movies either - zombies seem to be subsidising the video games industry lately.

Second viewing of MoS and the theatre was packed again. Looks like a big hit then, so Warner must be hugely relieved. I think I forgot to mention last week as well that some stupid inconsiderate bitch and her fella brought a fucking newborn in with them, which proceeded to actually cry about twenty minutes into the movie. I'm telling you that thing was eight weeks old. Sometimes I think shootings at the cinema are well justified.

This happened to me too and it made me sick. They should be exposed to that loudness or stimulation. Awful.

Poor thing doesn't stand a chance with morons as parents. The cinema management are just as much to blame. Are they going out and way to deter business and make people go elsewhere or stay at home and watch the pirate version instead? I remember thinking if the baby didn't quiet down in short time I was going to get my money back, but thankfully it only lasted a few minutes early on.

I don't go the cinema much nowadays, but every time I do I ask myself once again why I bother when the world is seemingly filled with inconsiderate cunts.

Am I the only one with good cinema going experiences?

I remember with the Hobbit and Iron Man 3 there were like 15 people tops and the audience itself ended up being as much of a blast as the movie. Maybe I live surrounded by nerds.... (I remember a hot girl dressed as an elf).

This one wasn't a newborn. Every scary sequence left them shouting mama mama.

The only real problem here is that incestuous relation people have to their smartphones, checking their status mail every 5 minutes so cinema becomes a lightning show sometimes.

To address this, the german BZgA has turned the national addiction radar to internet and cell phone addiction which has become a worrisome problems among some young adults - obviously iPhone withdrawal symptoms range from mild aggressions up to epileptic seizures in some extreme cases. Who would have thought...

It made Avatar even more blue and 3D. A great experience!

my theatre expels people on their phones during a film performance. The theatres around here have really cracked down on it.

For the most part my movie going experiences are all the same, people are considerate and polite. my biggest problem is those who seem to have bladders the size of a thimble.

I forgot to mention that I had the same experience. I've only seen a handful of movies in theaters this year and every time I wonder why I keep going back. There was a guy kicking my seat and devouring his enormous bucket of popcorn throughout the whole movie. There was a family with like 3 or 4 toddlers where the kids were whining and not paying attention. Once a couple dick jokes were thrown out the father escorted the lot slowly out of the theater while still watching the movie himself. They eventually came back, went out again during the final action scenes, and then all of a sudden during the pivotal moment towards the end where the music took over and there was no sound this little toddler girl was running and giggling around the front walking area with no parent to be seen.

I cannot wait for Arclight to finally branch out of LA. Their first theater on the coast is going to be 5 minutes from my house. They charge full price for all ages and have employees monitor the theater to kick people out. There is still hope!

Ugh, what a nightmare.

The second time I went to MoS people were playing musical chairs. Constant heads passing across the bottom of the screen, on their way to and from the toilets.

Nah. We have good movie experiences here too. Everyones generally polite, considerate and not plain stupid.

I can find those at my local arthouse cinema, which recently renovated causing me to miss To The Wonder in theaters. :P

But now it has plush lazyboy style seats, assigned seating, the lobby turned into a lounge and a full service bar. I didn't bother asking how much a beer was though, considering sodas are like $5.

Ten films have broken 100 million dollars this summer, 4 have broken 200 million. As expected Iron Man 3 is in an unreachable #1 spot but Man of Steel and Fast and Furious 6 will move into the 2nd and 3rd place spots this weekend passing Oz

White House Down is looking like another domestic flop, how well it plays overseas remains to be seen.

The new Sandra Bullock cop film, which doesn't look funny at all, is looking good with early numbers.

This monster has to earn around 700 - 750 Mio. $ at least to make WB happy which it will do eventually but the result as of now is not nearly as barnstorming as they had hoped for.

Costs are out of hand now to the point that 500mil isn't deemed satisfactory to the shareholders. What a joke. The games industry is in the grip of the same dumb mess only much worse.

Despicable Me 2 is projecting over a $100 million this weekend, opening with an estimated $35 million yesterday.

The Lone Ranger.......................................... :kaboom:

It should become a sound reminder that not every innocous summer blockbuster

a) must cost in excess of 200 Mio. $

b) must run over 140 minutes

c) must become bloated und unfocused because of vain star actors needing their own movie within the movie

looks like Lone Ranger is the winner.

The winner of biggest bomb out of the poll choices in the main post? No, I think After Earth will make less.

After Earth finished it's box office run with about $58 million. Lone Ranger made $48 million in its opening weekend. It would be an impressive feat to not bring in another $10 million in the next month.

I guess Johnny Depp is still more marketable than Will Smith.

All the other choices in the poll made at least $100 million, except Pacific Rim which isn't open yet. But I'm sure that will make at least $58 million, in fact I think it will make $100 million.

biggest bomb, After Earth may make less but it isn't the bomb this is. Disney is looking at a 150 million dollar loss.

So for the biggest bomb poll we were supposed to vote on the biggest difference between budget and box office revenue, not just the lowest box office revenue? I didn't know that.

whats puzzling is they act surprised. REALLY DISNEY EXECS???



So for the biggest bomb poll we were supposed to vote on the biggest difference between budget and box office revenue, not just the lowest box office revenue? I didn't know that.

i guess it could be looked at both ways, After Earth can win for lowest revenues I suppose. But After Earth cost only 130 million bucks, I know ONLY???, but Lone Ranger cost 215 million. where the hell does that money go, it's a western for goodness sakes?

I wonder which muppet will throw money at Shyamalan to make another overblown turkey next? If you wanna piss your money down the drain he's your guy!

I thought it was 250? Well 50 mill goes straight to Depp. They built their own train and sets and miles of railroad, if I recall correctly. The production was halted at one point to reassess the budget, that type of pause is very costly.

It was a bloated mess that could have been made just as well for about $180, I think.

I didn't say "only," I said "about."

Inception and The Dark Knight were around those numbers. I think that's a reasonable amount for a Summer blockbuster utilizing traditional effects as well as CGI.

Parts of Hollywood are still well out of control. Luckily for me those movies stand out like a sore thumb and shout, "HEY, LOOK AT ME: I'M SHIT. AVOID."

The people who still go see them despite the warnings? Dickheads!

I can't blame them for wanting to capture the Pirate magic again. I want to see the film but Dave and I can rent it for a buck Sixty instead of spending 27 bucks at the theatre

I read somewhere that After Earth was actually his first financial flop. Apparently the others profited.

Nope, that movie has been well received. You're in denial about that, that's all. I know how it bugs you so.

I was talking about turkeys like The Happening, or The Lone Ranger. Clearly bad movies as shown at the trailer stage. And yet people still go... and then moan about it afterwards.

It was well-received by oafs like you, that's about it. Supreme indifference is more like it, but who cares? LONE RANGER is surely as well-deserved a loser as AFTER EARTH, both which i have no intention of seeing.

Now i'm tempted to go to PACIFIC RIM, but that's about it as far as brainless summer cinema goes.
