skeptical of their numbers on the other two, which makes me wonder how accurate the third is. Of course, it's also very possible that I'm way wrong on two and clueless on the other.

Interesting {nm} xiayun Nov 07, 11:54

Would be more interesting if we knew what RS was. Jay_Beezy Nov 07, 12:11

Nice... Looks like Sensei was on to something... {nm} VictorY Nov 07, 12:23

Really don't see Immortals doing that well. Just lokes like the Conan the Barbarian remake! {nm} numbersix_99 Nov 07, 12:31

I think it looks incredible. I agree with Sensei in that there really hasn't been a movie of this genre for quite some time... {nm} PRodQuanta Nov 07, 12:34

Of what genre does he speak? What about Centurion or The Eagle or Clash of the Titans or Prince of Persia or Conan? {nm} Paul2k Nov 07, 12:42

I have to admit to not reading his site, so I'm looking to be enlightened on the arguement. {nm} Paul2k Nov 07, 12:42

Ancient Greek. You hit the nail on the head. I would consider myself (and my sig. fig.) a fan of the genre and are excited for this. {nm} PRodQuanta Nov 07, 13:28

Tarsem can certainly make a script look cool. Its appears to be way more visually stunning than Conan {nm} dioneta Nov 07, 12:34

Are you only really skeptical on Jack and Jill just because it's Sandler? Is that your only reason? {nm} Jay_Beezy Nov 07, 12:45

Mostly, yeah. I know the movie looks absolutely awful and everything, and I would not be surprised if it opens lower than your average Ruthian23 Nov 07, 12:59

But him doing a family comedy has questionable drawing power. Bedtime Stories' BO performance felt pretty underwhelming. Jay_Beezy Nov 07, 13:11

Perhaps. You could well be right. {nm} Ruthian23 Nov 07, 13:31

It also opened the weekend before Christmas which is never a good week for anything. TheWeekendWarrior Nov 07, 14:08

Bedtime Stories opened on Christmas Day actually. And that should have been a good thing. {nm} Jay_Beezy Nov 07, 14:13

Have you thought that the marketing has really been that kid movie oriented? I vaguely remember the marketing for Bedtime Story and I Ruthian23 Nov 07, 14:26

That's exactly what I've been saying. The ads looks like they can't decide who to cater to. {nm} Jay_Beezy Nov 07, 14:40

Tagging for posterity: [HOOVR] [JAJIL] [IMRTL] {nm} Paul2k Nov 07, 12:37

MTC isn't taking into account that JAJIL is a family film and kids will eat up the crappy crossdressing humor TheWeekendWarrior Nov 07, 14:07

Kids punching adults at the dinner table? What Mom is taking her kids to that? I think you must mean "teens" will eat it up {nm} dioneta Nov 07, 14:16

Parents are more likely to take their kids to Puss in Boots. Zookeeper tracked similarly. {nm} Jay_Beezy Nov 07, 14:16

I can literally do a 1:1 comparison between the two movie if it helps (but don't have time to do it right now) TheWeekendWarrior Nov 07, 14:22

Zookeeper had a summer release date. I'd think that gave it a better advantage than Jack and Jill. Jay_Beezy Nov 07, 14:32

Even so, you're comparing apples (Sandler) to oranges (Kevin James) {nm} TheWeekendWarrior Nov 07, 15:03

So what if the two stars are different? That doesn't mean the two films have nothing in common. Kids usually eat up talking animals, too. {nm} Jay_Beezy Nov 07, 15:08

Sandler has much more drawing power than James. accountant_4_Jesus Nov 07, 18:06

Zookeeper had a summer release date, and there was word of positive test scores that prompted the summer move. Jay_Beezy Nov 08, 05:24
