Trying out Jonjo's idea for one that I'm really curious about unsure.gif See if there's much demand for one of these from time to time



The controversy that 'The Interview' found itself in was all over the media at the end of last year. The US release was cancelled, the film was distributed online and today it arrives in UK cinemas.

Has the buzz fizzled out too much? Has everyone interested in seeing it already checked it out via other methods?

The last Seth Rogen-led movie 'Bad Neighbours' opened with almost 8.5m over a nine day period and a bit over 3m of that came over the usual three day weekend period. In 2013, 'This Is The End' starring Seth and James Franco opened with a touch under 1.4m.

Last weekend, 'Kingsman' and 'Big Hero 6' both opened with over 4m.

So what will 'The Interview' do over the 6th Feb-8th Feb period? ohmy.gif

600k
This will bomb due to the fact is has been online for ages and like no promo for the films actual release so I don't think many people are aware it is out in the cinema.

I think it'll manage to do JUST over a million. Literally just. laugh.gif However, it could very well be below, due to being available beforehand and people probably downloading/streaming due to thinking we'd never get it etc..

Yeh, I think a lot of people who wanted to see it would have done it around the time of it being released online.

It'll probably do around 1 million.

Wow, that's awful! I thought it would be around 700k, purely because of the curiosity after all the controversy.

Only just scraping the top 10. drama.gif

Wouldn't ponder on it too much but I'm interested to know how much it was dampened by the online release and how much of this terrible showing is just people not being aware of the cinema release (didn't see it trailered, didn't see any billboards, the only advert I saw for it was in the Metro newspaper).
