Here are the flops of the week: October 17


Max Payne
Passchendaele
W.
Sex Drive
Rachel Getting Married
The Secret Life of Bees

Why are they going to be flops?




Those movies will not be shown in Quebec City in English(only in French in most cases). Max Payne or Passchendaele would had been a good replacement for Eagle Eye that's still available in English. It's not a good sign for either movies. :(

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: none


Last week, Quarantine(14.2M) did good but my brother in law told me that 1/3 left before it ended. It did beat times Body of Lies(13.1). The Express(4.7M) and City of Ember(3.2M) did flop.
