Here are the flops of the week: October 10
City of Ember
Why are they going to be flops?
Those movies will not be shown in Quebec City in English(only in French in most cases). Quarantine could had been available if it would had been release closer to Halloween.
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: Body of Lies. I do like to see free movies. ;)
Last week, Beverly Hills Chihuahua(29M) did almost 3 times better than Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist(12M) which was available in English here. Blindness(2M) flopped in a major way.
