Here are the flops of the week: August 22

Death Race
The House Bunny
The Rocker
The Longshots
Hamlet 2

Why are they going to be flops?

Those movies will not be shown in Quebec City in English(only in French). Hamlet 2 is not even shown in French. The Dark Night is the only major movie still shown. Is it for tourists on rainy days? Perhaps.

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.

I was hoping to see Death Race but it won't be this weekend. For the kids, Death Race is a re-imagination of the original with David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone. The race(with death) is there but nothing much from what I saw in the trailers.
