It'll make it's money back. It only cost about $15 million to make.

More telling is the fact that Daredevil is down NEARLY 67% off it's opening weekend. Bad word-of-mouth is killing it, making it very possible that this bloated sack of a movie might not even make it to the $100 million mark!

So when you like a movie and its BO is bad, its because people are dumb and won't support an intellegent movie.....but when its a movie you dislike and its BO is bad its supposed to be some measure of quality.

C'mon, consistency in reasoning is all I ask.

And I'm using the all inclusive you. not the specific hokeyboy, you.

Wow, surprised at how well Old School did, but it's going to have good word of mouth too. I was figuring DD would lose 50% of its initial weekend's take, but 67%? Sheesh!

Clemente: What I think hokeyboy is trying to say is not that BO is a measure of quality, but that even the dumb people know enough to stay away from a bloated sack of a movie like Daredevil if other dumb people say it's bad. (Heaven knows dumb people saying a good movie is bad has killed enough, nice to see it working against a movie that actually deserves bad word of mouth.)

If anybody would like to see my bloated sack, meet me in the men's room with a David Hartman mask and a bag full of weenies.



Now then, a 67% week-to-week fall-off is pretty severe, now matter how you try to spin it. This can only be the result of either really horrific word-of-mouth or top-heavy front-loadedness based on early fanboy turnout. Or both. Like what happened with Star Trek: Nemesis or The Verdict...

Sorry, DD haters (hey, I'll admit it was hardly perfect, but I gave it a "B" for effort - I had fun) -- the movie retains the #1 spot this week, at least according to www.boxofficemojo.com 's weekend projections:

1. Daredevil $19.5 million/$70 m total
2. Old School $16.5 million
3. How To Lose A Guy $12.5 million/$65 mil
4. Chicago $9 million/$94.5 mil
5. Jungle Book 2 $8.2 million/$25 mil
6. Life Of David Gale $7 million
7. Shanghai Knights $6.8 million/$44.8 mil
8. Gods and Generals $5.5 million
9. Dark Blue $3.8 million
10. The Recruit $3.7 million/$44.6 mil

As always, this could change, but it seems DD eked out a second weekend at #1.

Well, I'm hardly a DD "hater" -- although the movie was a bloated sack, that's not to say I didn't have fun with it.

As opposed to, say, xXx, another bloated sack that was never enjoyable.

Still, that's a 52% drop. Ouches. This movie is playing more like Blade 2 rather than Spiderman...

I'm not surprised by the Dark Blue numbers, the average movie person thinks that Kurt Russel is old and washed up, so thats why its doing so poorly at the box office.

Its probably either the length (not many shows, if it was shorter we would probably see better numbers), and all of the terrible reviews its getting.

The only movie I've ever seen that was worthy of being close to four hours long was "Lawrence of Arabia."

Looks like "Chicago" may hit the $100 million mark without ever having been the #1 movie of the week. Was the last movie that happened to "There's Something About Mary"?

Actually the last movie that happened to was My Big Fat Greek Wedding. And I wouldn't be too shocked about Daredevil. It seems most movies have a large fall-off with a few exceptions. Not to mention last week was a holiday weekend (Valentines and President's Day). So it seems typical, neither good nor bad.

Actually There's Something About Mary DID finally hit #1 about 10 weeks into it's run (a box office record that will probably stand a very long time, even though the superfluke MBFGW had a shot at it). Most movies will have already been out of theaters for a month, ten weeks after opening. I almost think Mary had a very comparable run to MBFGW, considering it was rated R and still managed to pull in $180 mil.

50% drop off is pretty much par for the course these days with big budget "blockbusters."

And comparing this movie, hell any movie, to Spider-man's BO performance is not fair. Compare any movie to Spider-man and its a complete failure (save Titanic and selected SW movies)
