THR on Peter Jackson: [DAMBS] "too English" on the back burner. He won't direct again before the end of 2010 at the earliest.    Antibody on Nov 09, 16:11

"too english"? translation: "too smart for dumbass short attention span americans"   islander on Nov 09, 16:19

I think it's more that American moviegoers (generally) are more interested in movies with American characters/stars than English - see U571 {nm}   RogerMore on Nov 09, 16:30

K19 is another example. {nm}   Antibody on Nov 09, 16:47

other than red october, subs dont sell well on the big screen. this flick is about fighter jets. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Nov 09, 17:59

Crime Tide. Umm, Dambusters are WWII bombers, no jets. {nm}   Antibody on Nov 09, 18:11

CRIMSON Tide. {nm}   Antibody on Nov 09, 18:11

crimson tide & basterds. cool, bet on tarantino. bottom line tho, pjack could make the cspan channel exciting. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Nov 09, 18:29

No, I think it's hard to sell most Americans on a non-American war stories. Everyone speaking with a British accent = arthouse. {nm}   Antibody on Nov 09, 16:37

filmmakers have to risk it that a good film will win out regardless of setting or accents. otherwise we're doomed to nothing..   islander on Nov 09, 16:42

It's probably what studio is telling PJACK. "Can you make one of the pilots American?" or PJACK should find British financial backers. {nm}   Antibody on Nov 09, 16:45

*would have cast MMCCO as Oskar Schindler, TLAUT as Gandhi, and MCYRU as Maria in the Sound of Music"*   todays studio execs on Nov 09, 16:58

ill take epic in your face special effects & big budget vamps over fishing line special effects and obese black women anyday. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Nov 09, 18:02

New IPO needed: DUMBS :) {nm}   joeoftexas on Nov 09, 16:46

valkyrie did ok. as did basterds. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Nov 09, 17:57

Basterds were Americans, which did much better than Valkyrie, which were Germans. {nm}   Antibody on Nov 10, 10:12

ricky gervais is too english. killin nazis is american. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Nov 09, 16:29

What would be a cast of Ricky Gervais killing Nazis? {nm}   Antibody on Nov 09, 17:11

borderline gay with dry humor? {nm}   adrenalin112 on Nov 09, 17:56
