    I love they claim it’s based on a “true story.” Yeah, right. Just your standard Hollywood spoof-fest.

    um movies only ake so much at the box office now a days because of the price of tickets not like how it was in the old days when popular films got re releases for big anniversaries. as Columbia Tristar might for Philadephia’s 20th anniversary next year as there’s already been a collectors edition 2 disc of the DVD for the 10th anniversary in 03 or this passed spring Camelot was released as a blu ray for it’s 45th anniversary. but you also have to take into account that a movie ticket cost $1.20 when camelot came out compaired to $8.02 now on average. so 26,000,000 tickets were sold to make the 31.1 million dollars it did at the box office while if the same amount of people saw Possesition it would make 208,000,000. the price of an average movie ticket has gone up 668.35% in 45 years.
