If you know your history “The Matrix: Reloaded” has turned off quite a bit of people who saw it. No doubt the Matrix franchise has a hugh fan base and will rock when it opens. However, I believe “The Matrix: Revolution” will have higher drop off rate than “Kill Bill Volume 1.” Females will be the factor that keep KB Vol 1’s US Box strong (some of the most passionate and dead on acurate reviews from my perspective have been women.) This is a factor M:Rev cannot capture (The Matrix fanchise lost the good faith with M:Rel; many women who didn’t see “The Matrix” and came out to see M:Rel on the strong belief they missed something special the first time were very disappointed.)[/quote]
I’ll take that bet so long as we’re speaking domestically. I think Kill Bill will stomp out the competition in Asia and parts of Europe, but not in America. If I’m wrong (and so far, my earlier predictions about the opening box office numbers were just about on spot) I’ll publicly denounce myself on this board and in the chat lounge as an ass who doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Hell…I’ll even put it in my sig. If you lose, you have to do what I will have to do if I’m wrong.
