Here are the flops of the week: October 24
Pride and Glory
The Tiger's Tail
Why are they going to be flops?
Those movies will not be shown in Quebec City in English(only in French in most cases). I would had expected Saw V since the others in the series were available in English.
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: High School Musical 3: Senior Year(Nope, I won't see it)
Last week, Max Payne(17.7M) did good. It did beat The Secret Life of Bees(10.5) and W.(10.5M). Sex Drive(3.6M) did flop.
