    Of course, it should go without saying that foreign/international grosses will make a big difference for some of these films. “This Means War,” for example, was so-so domestically, but its worldwide gross is $157m and counting.

    “Wrath of the Titans” underperformed its predecessor, but it just crossed $300m and change worldwide; “Ghost Rider” is at $133m worldwide (as of this week) and so on.

    I normally am not the kind of guy who wishes failure on anyone, but seeing the dismal returns of That’s My Boy brings some joy to me. It just had a terrible premise to begin with, even for an Adam Sandler comedy, and it’s great that others were wise enough to keep away (surely the “R” rating didn’t help).

    Did “The Master” really had a $40m budget? That’s crazy. Why would anyone invest so much money in such a “difficult” movie? And why was it nominated at the Gotham Awards?

    I think Alex Cross can probably already be considered a bomb.

    That was quoted by Sasha in the Awards Daily forum. Unfortunately, whenever I connect with it, a malware alert pops up, so I can’t get the URL of the article in question.   

    Updated: $35m at least, not 40: http://www.thewrap.com/movies/column-post/megan-ellison-and-hollywood-or-when-billionaire-run-movie-business-61041?page=0,0

    Paul Thomas Anderson might be in very big trouble.. There Will be Blood, good as it was, and now The Master. How can these studios gamble on him in the future? Sad..
