Okay… so if, as a blog commenter wrote, Bridge to Samantha Stevens’ Daughter (aka Bridge To Terebithia) actually cost $30 million… or even $40 million or $50 million, a $28 million 4-day weekend – for a kids movie, likely to signal a film that cracks $100 million – will make the movie a major profit center. (Far more so than An Inconvenient Truth, which Peter Bart oddly claimed a few weeks ago is Paramount’s “Paramount’s single most profitable release.”)
Meanwhile, February has become

There is so much to say today and so little time.
Ghost screenings worked out burningly well for Ghost Rider.

Quote Unquotesee all »

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”
~ Bong Joon-ho

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
~ Steven Soderbergh
