A surprise (to me, anyway...)

I was very surprised that the Karate Kid remake did so much better than the A-Team at the box office over the weekend. Maybe because KK is more family/kid friendly? Maybe because the primary A-Team audience was busy watching the World Cup? (Who knew Americans would be interested in soccer?)

Actually, with the exception of Sex and the City 2, it sounds like most films have been financial disappointments this summer. Iron Man 2's earnings are way off and so is Shrek's. Have the cinemas finally priced themselves out of business? Or is it the lack of quality at the cineplex?

Let me know what you think...


  1. Lack of quality is my guess.

  2. It could be lack of quality but I don't know... We're talking about a nation that spent over $400mil on Transformers 2...
