    A $49 per-screen average yesterday for “Queen of the Desert”?
    Wow.
    Even factoring in the VOD traffic, Herzog and Kidman have definitely seen better days.

  2. Sideshow Bill says:

    I watched THE VOID last night. It’s sort of a low budget “greatest hits” of 70s & 80s horror. It didn’t fully come together or make a lot of sense but it was still kind of a hoot. Never boring. Plus it had the lovely Ellen Wong, who really should be getting more work.

    I expected The Case For Christ to do better than it did. It seems more well-liked than those other Pure Flix releases. Then again it’s only in 1174 theaters. Not my cup of tea at all but this audience usually comes out for their films.

    ^ Sideshow, I had to google Ellen Wong, but hot damn if you aren’t right.

  4. Sideshow Bill says:

    She was so great in Scott Pilgrim. I expected to see her a lot more. Plus, yes, she’s beautiful.

  5. cadavra says:

    A quick check of the IMDb finds she’s been working mostly in television, but she does have a few movies upcoming.

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”

“As these stories continue to break, in the weeks since women have said they were harassed and abused by Harvey Weinstein, which was not the birth of a movement but an easy and highly visible shorthand for decades of organizing against sexual harassment that preceded this moment, I hope to gain back my time, my work. Lately, though, I have noticed a drift in the discourse from violated rights to violated feelings: the swelled number of reporters on the beat, the burden on each woman’s story to concern a man “important” enough to report on, the detailed accounting of hotel robes and incriminating texts along with a careful description of what was grabbed, who exposed what, and how many times. What I remember most, from “my story” is how small the sex talk felt, almost dull. I did not feel hurt. I had no pain to confess in public. As more stories come out, I like to think that we would also believe a woman who said, for example, that the sight of the penis of the man who promised her work did not wound her, and that the loss she felt was not some loss of herself but of her time, energy, power.”
