Some of those I'll just wait to buy on DVD. And the one I'm looking forward to seeing the most is World Trade Center.

Looks as if the theaters are empty, and the #1 movie might not even make $10M for the Fri-Sat-Sun totals.

I would think that it has more to do with the fact that summer is ending and folks would like to spend that last chance to do summer activities such as beach, BBQ's and drinking in any shape or form.

That and it's the end of summer so it's time for studios to take out the trash and dump their crappy films for some profit.

Why? The preseason ended Thursday and the regular season doesn't start until next Thursday.

I wonder what effect the weather has. I know one big movie's opening numbers were skewed because of a huge snowstorm... I wonder if the hurricane did anything. When people cancel travel plans they may just decide to go to the movies. Or stay in alltogether. I don't know.

Not much I don't think. Labor Day weekend is always weak. Transporter 2 has the all-time Labor Day 4-day opening record and that's only $20 million.

There weren't any press screenings of the film. In a way I'd like to check the film out, but I don't want my memory of the original classic warped. Reviews of the remake in Britain say its' mostly shit.
