Grindhouse would make more money if released on the same week as DH4


#1

Seriously, after hearing that Live Free or Die Hard gets a PG-13 rating, people woulkd be mad. But if Grindhouse(aka the Planet Terror segment) was released on the same week as LFDH, then people would say:



"Hey, another Bruce Willis film. But this film is R! Cool!"



Now that would be a true money-maker.

I doubt that. Most people just did not want to see Grindhouse. The real fans went to see it and no one else cared or even noticed. If you decide what movie to see by the rating it gets thats really weird. PG 13 movies tend to make more money because the whole family can enjoy it and there is nothing wrong with that. I dont need to hear someone say fuck over and over for no reason. It doesnt make a film better just because someone says fuck alot. From what I hear the new Die Hard is retarded anyways. So I guess they are trying to boost ticket sales anyway they can

Yeah I also doubt that. Like Knoxville said, the real fans went to see it. People weren’t just interested in Grindhouse, their loss.



The plot to LFDH sounds…tacky. Internet based terrorists, lol. I hope this film doesn’t ruin the other Die Hards.

yeaa i think it would have been the same result.

Grindhouse was a total bomb at the theatres.

Grindhouse is considered a horror movie by the vast majority of people. And it performed on the same lines that most horror movies perform. Look at 28 Weeks Later…it still hasn’t surpassed the $20 mill mark at the box-office, and it is a sequel to a very popular movie. The only difference is that the budget for Grindhouse was far higher than your average horror movie. That’s what Harvey/QT/RR don’t realise. The market for this kind of movie is too small to spend $ 60 million on, irrespective of the popularity of the directors. I have been saying this for a while now. Enough of this split crap excuse that they are trying to feed us.

sorry I didn’t get it that way

in French, if say “bomb” referring to a movie, it means it did reeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaally good

it doesn’t have to be a good movie tough, just a commercial success



so yeah in a way it bombed


#10

There’s a difference between “It bombed” and "It’s a bomb"



Likewise with “It’s shit” and "It’s the shit"
