Me too. Is there a way to see the numbers broken down by region? I wonder how much of their total came from the Northeast.

With only one new release next week, expect PITCH to hang on nicely.

Nobody wants to mention 50% drop for CITY?

I was going to, but didn't think much of it. That's about the drop that was predicted by most, no? Seems to be performing similar to the Kill Bill movies that many have mentioned.

50% drop is pretty normal for R-rated Action/Violence flicks, especially these past few years.

Kill Bill Volume 1 dropped 44%, Kill Bill Volume 2 dropped 58.5%

For a comic book movie, a 51% drop is a pretty good sign. Hulk and Elektra dropped 70%, Hellboy and Constantine dropped 60%, Blade III dropped 57% X-Men dropped 53% and X2 dropped 52%.

It wasn't THEE drop I was concerned about, but the fact that it did drop. The film is beloved around here, and I noticed it wasn't brought up yet. As opposed to films everybody hates. Those numbers are given Zapruder-like attention.

Not a big deal. No need to explain history. I get it already.

Families can take their children to The Pacifier.

Like it or not, The Pacifier has more of an audience than Sin City.

actually ive seen a few soccer moms bring theyre kids to Sin City....but i guess that didnt make much of a difference at the box office. Im sure Sin City will far outsell Pacifier when they get released on DVD, though.

I wouldn't be too sure of that.

The geek factor vs. the mom factor... It comes out even.

nah. the mom factor basically will bring the kids to the movie when its in the theater, but both her and the kids will probably forget about it until they see it much later in a 2pack with "My Pretty Pony" at Walmart for $5. Sin city appeals more to guys like us, who are addicted to DVDs and spend upwards of $200 on em every month or two. The soccer moms only buy them when they see a movie in the $5 bin, or when theyre kids beg and scream for em, which most wont. Its a crappy flick (or so ive heard)...
