Yes... a movie that has more hype and is marketed better will do better business. Not sure I understand your argument

Posted by: TheWeekendWarrior on Nov 26, 20:33 in response to xiayun's post as what tawdryhepburn said, and DMETH was priced as half...

Artist will have huge legs cause of word-of-mouth and awards (including some as early as next week) while Dangerous Method won't have either. It also won't expand as much as The Artist going by Sony Classics' track record to the WEinsteins.

MCN: [MYWWM] fri avg $2,500 / $610k fri total, [ARTST] $18,850 / $75.4k, [DMETH] $15,150 / $60.6k    Oleg Max on Nov 26, 10:36

That's pretty strong for DMETH {nm}   xiayun on Nov 26, 12:24

Tangentially related: I just looked at the box office on Cronenberg's last two and WOW... had no recollection of HoV doing $30m & EP $17m   dsbman on Nov 26, 13:18

The influence of casting VMORT, I think, at that time. {nm}   second gary on Nov 26, 13:22

I was surprised at how good VMORT was in DMETH. He upends every cliche about Freud while delivering a fully complex character. {nm}   helmetz on Nov 26, 13:31

Not for one of the busiest moviegoing days of the year... it averaged less than ARTST with a bigger name cast and director. {nm}   TheWeekendWarrior on Nov 26, 18:49

The Artist has had a lot more hype. I didn't even know that Dangerous Method had opened and I'm a Cronenberg fanboy. {nm}   tawdryhepburn on Nov 26, 18:59

as what tawdryhepburn said, and DMETH was priced as half of what The Artist had {nm}   xiayun on Nov 26, 20:12

DMETH is looking at $38K+ PTA in 4 theaters, and if we look at the history of all films who have done this in at least 4 theaters on OW   xiayun on Nov 26, 21:18

I think competition wil have a huge impact against DMETH in the coming weeks: Carnage, Tinker Tailor, Shame, Kevin, etc {nm}   numbersix_99 on Nov 27, 06:37
