    Freeheld isn’t doing well. What was Lionsgate thinking? Who would want to see a movie version of the story when there already was an award-winning documentary just a few years ago!

    For a moment, I thought you were talking about “The Walk,” Poet.

  3. Mike says:

    Well, it probably didn’t help that the movie just looked bad. And that society completely swept past the struggles in the movie making it feel hopelessly out of date.

  4. Hcat says:

    I understand TriStar might recut the Walk so that he meets Jesus out on the wire in an attempt to get it to 60 plus domestic

  5. JS Partisan says:

    The Walk’s total and utter failure is so distressing, but this is the legacy of 3D. Who wants to fucking watch that shit in 3D? It’s such a swing and a miss, but here’s to people finding it. Robert deserves a lot better than this shit.

    Also, The Force Awakens could do it. It could do it, but so many have failed. It could do it though.

  6. YancySkancy says:

    The percentage of the public that has seen the documentaries about Freeheld and Petit is undoubtedly minuscule. I can’t imagine the producers worried for one second that the existence of the docs would impact viewership of the adaptations whatsoever.

  7. Triple Option says:

    I didn’t see Freeheld but it seems more like a made-for-tv movie.
