If the movie is anything like the musical (which I saw and loved), then the marketing has been way off.

Posted by: HurricaneKid on May 29, 16:42 in response to forlorne's post I haven't figured out who this movie is aimed at.

The musical was more focused on the rock aspects. Great classic rock music, and self-referential humor.

Lots of breaking the fourth wall as well, which will likely be cut from the film. Russel Brand's character played a much bigger role in the musical than he seems to be getting in the film.

so.... mtc 43 and RS mid 60s... What does that mean?? {nm}   gardavou on May 29, 13:17

Yeah, sticking with my $40-50m feeling {nm}   xiayun on May 29, 13:19

Had a feeling. Getting the impression this might barely top Battleship numbers at this point, but we'll see. {nm}   ShawnMR on May 29, 13:21

The Twitter index is the most concerning part IMO, only 3378 tweets on Monday for a film that should have big ratio   xiayun on May 29, 13:24

Agreed. I'm not impressed with its Twitter performance at all either, especially considering it has Twitter/Twilight darling Stewart.   ShawnMR on May 29, 13:32

Although advanced sales look pretty good from what I've seen. Already cracked Fandango 5. Should be #1 by tomorrow is my guess. From a    GMov on May 29, 13:56

I'd expect more robust advance sales given the demo; the key would be how much walk-up business it gets and how frontloaded to Fri it may be {nm}   xiayun on May 29, 14:03

b/C of Kristin Stewart? {nm}   GMov on May 29, 14:17

b/c the young female-oriented demo it's targeting; at least that's the demo I feel it's mainly targeting   xiayun on May 29, 14:58

I'll also add that I still believe women are holding out for Rock of Ages. Surprised its trading so low. {nm}   ShawnMR on May 29, 13:39

Demographic for Rock of Ages would seem to be a bit older than that of Show White. {nm}   Abraxas on May 29, 13:52

Both are striving to appeal to 20-something women. Competition for the male audience between the two might even be closer than meets the eye   ShawnMR on May 29, 14:06

Get the feeling that what???? No one. AND I MEAN NO ONE is holding out for that trash. {nm}   lhayes37 on May 29, 13:57

Agreed. Will give Adam sandler good competition in the Razzies {nm}   thatpj on May 29, 20:22

That's disappointing {nm}   thatpj on May 29, 19:35
