Friday Estimates by Snitchy Klady

Identity Thief will likely win the weekend. Snitch will be a weak opening. Safe Haven… awwwww. Dark Skies isn’t very bright.

Off to the Indie Spirits now…

    DIE HARD is doing so poorly domestically, that it may barely turn a profit after all…

    SAFE HAVEN really is showing that Efron and Miley Cyrus didn’t add much to the grosses for their Sparks movies….

    I’d say it’s more like, “‘Beautiful Creatures’……awwwwwwwww.”
    I’m still puzzled as to why it’s done so poorly.
    Did Warners overestimate the appeal of the YA books?

“I don’t believe in the Nietzschean notion that what doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger. You see these soldiers come back with PTSD; they’ve been to war and seen death and experienced these existential crises one after the other. There are traumas in life that weaken us for the future. And that’s what’s happened to me. The various slings and arrows of life have not strengthened me. I think I’m weaker. I think there are things I couldn’t take now that I would have been able to take when I was younger.”
~ Woody Allen

“Hitchcock films the story with a wide-eyed, astonished, fascinated, and disturbed camera stare that seems to shudder and tremble every time Hedren is onscreen. Even the director’s cameo—in which he watches Hedren walking down a hotel corridor and then turns back to look at the camera, shamefacedly caught in his own leer—suggests his self-aware sense of visual carnality. The images offer an extraordinary swing between blasts of heat and an eerie chill, sometimes bringing the two together. Even the film’s exterior locations have a fluorescent buzz that captures an ambient sense of derangement.”
~ Richard Brody on Marnie
