How Is This Even Possible????

"Misconduct" makes less than 150$ opening weekend in UK! We're talkin' Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins! How is this even possible? Now I have to see this thing just to find out what went wrong :) http://bit.ly/24zFHIf

Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins thriller makes less than £100 at UK box office

Misconduct, a star-studded legal thriller starring Oscar-winners Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins, made less than £100 in its opening weekend at the UK box office. The £97 Pacino flop and Stanford Pris…

$11mil budget? Wow. that explains why Hopkins is doing turbo tax commercials and Transformers. He needs $$$

Pretty fascinating, no? I have an article on this ready for the Weekend Blog, but I imagine a much more conclusive autopsy is yet to come.

Jeff Lyons

RB--yeah... someone's investors can't be very happy right now. :)

Alan Read

"How is this even possible?" One word- Ishtar!

Richard "RB" Botto

I'd say, Jeff...

James Day

No longer marketable. We will be seeing a lot more of the good actors on their way out. As the last of the Baby Boomers who grew up with them, it's disheartening.

Al Pacino not marketable? Put him in a comic book movie ! Michael Keaton, Robert Redford, Diane Lane, K Costner, Lawrence Fishburne, JK Simmons... plenty of 50+ year old Actors are reinventing their careers in comics

James Day

They're not 50, it's been a while lol....

Richard "RB" Botto

Absolutely not true that they aren't marketable. Al Pacino still brings foreign sales value in spades.

James Day

My apologies they're marketable, but the new Millennials' don't care. We grew up with them. As for Diane Lane, Sally Field they're marketable and I enjoyed their perfomances in the Comic Book Movies. You guys have humbled me. The only remark that I will make is that I love Comic Book Movies, but I also miss the occasional spec film that gets franchised. A good psych thriller or political thriller. Richard, just an aside I watched your video on getting scripts read and critiqued. I'm going for it.

Jeff I won't try to make out I know how this business works, but I do know that is a film is screened in the uk in 5 small cinemas, with no publicity, then it's not about generating money at the box office. It's more like to be to trigger or comply with a clause in a contract that will ultimately either save money or make more money for somebody.
