Just saw a poorly attended advance screening of "Your Highness" [YURHI]... (Lightly spoiler-ish)

Posted by: prahainsider on Apr 05, 19:45

The theater was half full and probably 1/3 of that walked out after the first 20-30 minutes. This included a couple in front of me that talked up Pineapple Express and seemed sold on the premise.

Now I enjoyed the film, but the first act was pretty lousy. It took Natalie Portman's character way to look to show up and Justin Theroux was absolutely awful. Danny McBride and James Franco were okay, but overall I have serious reservations for the B.O. on this. I mean, I have MacGruber level reservations. When you can't fill a theater for a free movie...

Just came from one that was full to the brimming and turned away people personally   MiyazakiFan on Apr 05, 20:06

Preview/promo screenings are not counted towards box office, guys. {nm}   secretstalker on Apr 05, 20:16

I know, secretstalker.   prahainsider on Apr 05, 20:19

I'd make a snarky response about how obvious this is, but why bother... {nm}   MiyazakiFan on Apr 05, 20:37

This was D.C. And the walkouts were from mainly teenagers. So I dunno... {nm}   prahainsider on Apr 05, 20:17

Not being full has more to do with the promotion / number of Internet passes distributed than interest... you can fill a free screening of   dsbman on Apr 05, 22:48

Please tell me you kept this long. Just for old times sake. {nm}   prahainsider on Apr 10, 21:13

What doesn't make sense and probably never will is how a schlubby, seemingly obnoxious and unfunny person like McBride can headline movies?   HarryWarden on Apr 05, 23:17

We're talking about a world where people like Paris Hilton have done multiple films. Talent is not required. {nm}   mrbeankc on Apr 06, 02:14

Isn't that terribly sad? {nm}   tradermark on Apr 06, 02:15

I cry myself to sleep every night thinking about it. {nm}   BionicMoron on Apr 06, 05:13

I don't weep but i do feel badly for all the good actors that never get a shot because of the need to put 'a name' on the screen. {nm}   tradermark on Apr 06, 09:26

I am so happy for day-traders! I am happy they will lose so much money on this one! {nm}   gomol on Apr 06, 04:02
