Is Kick-Ass actually starting to track better?   MiyazakiFan on Apr 05, 06:42

Tracking was in the 20's last time Notfabio posted. David Wells said Death at the Funeral was tracking better. So either Death is a mega    gogreen on Apr 05, 06:51

Tracking was in the 20s from Reel Source who also predicted over $80 million for Clash.   secretstalker on Apr 05, 07:13

We should ask horlicks, the Twitter expert, what he thinks... surely it's gotta be on there already. {nm}   secretstalker on Apr 05, 07:13

Its tracking amazingly well on Twitter. 4200 tweets last week. Ninja Assassin by comparison had 1700.   horlicks on Apr 05, 13:28

FWIW, KCKAS is already playing in theaters in Europe. {nm}   Antibody on Apr 05, 13:59

Definitely a factor in number of tweets. There are for instance a lot of Twitter users in the UK. {nm}   Facto on Apr 05, 14:23

Yes that does make a difference, but its factored into my ratio estimate and total. {nm}   horlicks on Apr 05, 15:23

Would be fantastic to find out what tracking service and/or bureau the Los Angeles Times (LAT) uses...   Facto on Apr 05, 07:38

Death at a Funeral is not likely to make anywhere near WDIG2 numbers, I'd say. It's got direct competition from WDIG2 itself, it has no Jane   Facto on Apr 05, 07:24

Different audience. The older, African-Amercan female fans of TPERR and WDIG2 are not gonna see the vulgar DEFUN. {nm}   Antibody on Apr 05, 08:57

I think word-of-mouth is going to play a huge factor with this movie. It has been released in parts of Europe and...   numbersix_99 on Apr 05, 07:21

Kick @ss is ironic, and Superhero Movie is a spoof. The difference is intelligence {nm}   numbersix_99 on Apr 05, 07:58

Millar's style of irony isn't very intelligent... and his work IS parody.    mikeybbbbb on Apr 05, 09:14

Having not read the comic (nor am I interested in reading comics in general), from the movie alone...   numbersix_99 on Apr 05, 11:29

Genre, for one, to go by the trailers: SHERO the thin SPIDM parody and KCKAS the coming-of-age geek transformation story played straight. {nm}   second gary on Apr 05, 07:59

KCKAS is very much a parody as well, just more subversive. {nm}   Antibody on Apr 05, 09:48

SHERO was a spoof, Kick-Ass is based off a graphic novel (already has fanbase) and has actual action in it. Big difference. {nm}   HurricaneKid on Apr 05, 07:59

Spoof movies haven't been successful in the better part of a decade. {nm}   MiyazakiFan on Apr 05, 08:51
