Here are the flops of the week: October 3
Beverly Hills Chihuahua
How To Lose Friends And Alienate People
Flash of Genius
Why are they going to be flops?
Those movies will not be shown in Quebec City in English(only in French). I was surprise that Blindness was not available.
The main reason is that the distributor believe that those won't make money in our market. They may have a fairly good first weekend but that's it. You are better to rent them later on instead of paying a lot of money for average movies. They will still make money on Blu-Ray/DVD.
An English movie is normally shown here for 2 weeks and longer with blockbuster like The Dark Night.
This week in English: Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. What the ...? Eagle Eye did good
