Here are the flops of the week: September 26
Miracle at St. Anna
Nights in Rodanthe
The Lucky Ones
Why are they going to be flops?
Those movies will not be shown in Quebec City in English(only in French). I was still hoping for Miracle at St. Anna to be the second movie in English. Even then, I would had doubts for making money.
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, I have Eagle Eye in English.
