I think that's reaching. There's no crystal ball saying which limited release political documentaries are going to break out. {nm}

MCA Predictions Up. Looks like a sub-par weekend.   VictorY on Aug 23, 11:28

you predict obama 2016. It is shame hsx didn't add obama 2016 as ipo   mike255 on Aug 23, 11:29

Spolier Alert! Dead horse seen on HSX. Currently being beaten. Film @11. {nm}   BSmurf on Aug 23, 11:34

Investigating police report a broken record left at the scene {nm}   numbersix_99 on Aug 23, 12:23

He might be repetitive, but I wonder if clashing political views prevent the Obama movie from an IPO on HSX.   elchan on Aug 23, 13:00

Are you serious? {nm}   slappydavid on Aug 23, 13:19

It was a fringe movie, financed by a few radicals--whouda thunk it? Anyway, missed opportunities occur about as frequently as the good ones.   eallensbp on Aug 23, 13:31

Mitt, is that you? {nm}   Zoggie on Aug 23, 12:41

Yeah, high singles for PRUSH, although I think $10M for PRUSH is just as likely. Surprised, a bit pleasantly, by 2016 Obama. Wow. Y'know, {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 23, 11:34

I have ignored 2016 Obama until now. It just seemed like one of those off-tha-radar Midwest movies that get funded by these fringe groups, {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 23, 11:36

ever so often. Now it's a serious contender. Deferring to MCA for this one, $6M looks likely. And I said earlier that HITRN is $10M 3-day &   eallensbp on Aug 23, 11:40

The problem I see with the week's openers is that they are not targeted for the mass market. I don't feel they should have opened so wide.   elchan on Aug 23, 12:31

The seats fo empty anyways since it's the end of summer. {nm}   Antibody on Aug 23, 12:34

* go empty {nm}   Antibody on Aug 23, 12:35

The issue, I feel, is not what TIME of year it is, but what kind of MOVIES play during it. I guarantee you if TRFM4 came out,   eallensbp on Aug 23, 12:48

I think that fundamental truth has already been demonstrated time and time again, and studios are already adapting to it.   RogerMore on Aug 23, 13:14

Right, but you're using March as an example. I'm still waiting for them to slot movies like Smurfs 2 for AUGUST 31 instead of JULY 31. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 23, 13:21

I don't think that the studios make enough good movies to fill a whole calendar year. There are always going to be gaps, like late August   RogerMore on Aug 23, 13:47

Or, I would argue, if they take one of two tentpoles and slot them in those August dog days that are typically occupied by "dumped" flicks. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 23, 16:44

Or even MALEF, which with its current date may get murdered @ the BO when it's comes out summer 2014. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 23, 13:22

Cost more money to run the projector. ;-) {nm}   elchan on Aug 23, 12:44

Want to add, APRTN was a Dark Castle prod, and they never make movies that AREN'T targeted at mass audiences. DarkC's deal w/WB went south,   eallensbp on Aug 23, 13:05
