NYV: Why Aren't More Women Planning to See [TGRLW]?

This exec says Sony is concerned that while women are more aware of Fincher’s movie than men, they are almost no more likely to want to see it: Fully 83% of women over 25 and 79% of women under 25 are aware of the film, but only 36% of either group of women expressed "definite interest" in seeing it. Men are about five percentage points lower in awareness in both demos, and yet at about the same percentage of definite interest.

NYV: Why Aren't More Women Planning to See [TGRLW]? Antibody Dec 13, 16:32

The title gives of a masculine vibe on a female....women are still girly girls at the theater...hollywood does not get this!!! {nm} 1bloke Dec 13, 16:43

Because they think DCraig is as sexy as a bowl of oatmeal? {nm} islander Dec 13, 16:43

He cleans up good for the Bond movies, but otherwise ... oatmeal. {nm} JDolphin Dec 13, 18:41

*Every* non-Bond movie he's made has been a b.o. disappointment. I don't think anyone likes him, almost even actively avoiding his films {nm} islander Dec 13, 19:05

Hmm... That's probably because of the way Fincher has gone with the project. And it might also have something to do with the accountant_4_Jesus Dec 13, 16:46

Apparently it's because women are "escapist, 'movie-date' oriented" *insert eyeroll here* Jane_Citizen Dec 13, 17:37

Maybe some of them are, and they just generalise for the rest using that brush. {nm} accountant_4_Jesus Dec 13, 17:47

I'd call it using a reductive preconception to justify the holding of a strongly-felt belief Jane_Citizen Dec 13, 18:14

I'm with you !! {nm} grammar Dec 13, 18:22

With that sentence, he's talking about horror movies, not female audiences. Instead, I'd make the generalisation that opening weekend RogerMore Dec 13, 19:34

oh you're right ... I haven't read that very closely ... Jane_Citizen Dec 13, 19:38

*sigh* correction: who don't know anything ... Jane_Citizen Dec 13, 19:41

I think that you actually had it correct the first time. {nm} accountant_4_Jesus Dec 13, 19:55

interesting review Jane_Citizen Dec 13, 19:26

Yes, so am I. How can anyone not look forward to a David Fincher movie? And I'm enjoying the Reznor take on "Immigrant Song," too. {nm} second gary Dec 13, 19:42

I loved the series and loved the Swedish versions of the film. I'm looking forward to seeing the US version. {nm} photochick814 Dec 14, 07:24

Because the trailers look dull. Never head of the books, the promos don't grab my attention at all. {nm} JDolphin Dec 13, 18:46

how is that even possible, "never heard of the books" ... ?? gosh. {nm} Jane_Citizen Dec 13, 19:30

Are you Male/Female? {nm} bloopster Dec 13, 19:53

And are you alive/dead? {nm} Roger More Dec 13, 20:05

Female, either alive or functioning zombie since I'm posting. The books don't sound like something I'd be interested in any way. {nm} JDolphin Dec 13, 22:49

Not really a Fincher fan either. Except for Social Network, I find his movies boring and wouldn't recommend any of them. {nm} JDolphin Dec 13, 22:55

the books were red hot in 2008. Nice avatar btw {nm} kydem Dec 14, 03:54
