    that guy is annoying….the thing is the audience are largely kids so anyone who makes a cmedy geared at a certain age group will be on top of the box office..otherwise try making a RUSSEL movie and see how many people will show up…

    How is Arthur a hit it made $12,605,000 on its first weekend and cost $40,000,000 to make 9 out 10 it’s only going to go down from there, most movies make the most in its first weekend. Next week Decisions, Rio and Scream 4 are coming out and no way is Arthur going to come close to 2 or 3 place my guess is that it’s will break even or come close when it’s releases worldwide.

    it’s a shame Source Code will be labeled as another Jake Gyllenhaal box office bomb when it’s actually quite a good film. I think people were turned off by the vagueness of the trailer.

    What the hell happened to Source Code???

    WTF Says:

    @IMMEGANFOX: You seem to forget that Natalie Portman was in the movie too. Her Oscar didn’t help then???? Will this affect Thor, I hope not.

    Seriously, one of the factors might have been that James Franco quit Twitter and Facebook that wasn’t cool. He built up such a strong fanbase in a very short period of time and just left without no warning and it paid in supporting him with this movie. Need to respect your fanbase always.

    Nothing to do with the Oscars, everyone knows the Oscars generally is very boring so all is forgotten and he tried his best (don’t no what the problem was). James has so much projects going on, I’m sure he’s not even going to realize that this didn’t do that well (and not because his high, he’s probably thinking next).

    It’s actually not a bomb if you think of the target audience, it should have opened a week before or after Arthur. It depends how much it was to make. They will get their money back overseas as they have better sense of humor, sorry but true and through DVD sales etc.

    I can’t believe Russell Brand is No. 1 and 2 in the box office just shocking above Natalie Portman and James Franco (just madness)??? Russell Brand is not funny at the best of times and he’s No. 1 and 2, I think I need a drink.

    Black Swan was an overrated Showgirls but with ballerinas. Ms. Hershlag She got her undeserved Oscar for being pregnant and taking credit for the work that her body double did. Plus she’s Jewish.
