You must see this trailer.
OK. I have seen the so-called experts say that a certain movie will debut at number 1 and make over $40 million and then make around $12 million. Well, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and take a dark horse.
12 Rounds is a movie starring wrestler John Cena. It's premise, you can make out from the trailer above. I am saying this right now as unbelievable as it sounds, but 12 Rounds will make some serious box office bank. People are sleeping on it because it comes out the same weekend as Monsters versus Aliens.
I am not giving it the number 1 spot yet but it will debut to very respectable numbers. it's not Oscar material. It's not going to be one of the top 100 movie of all time. But, it has been a while since there has been an action movie and the movie business has not taken a hit in this economic time.
People go to the movies like they are going to entertainment blogs; to escape the economy and life troubles for about 2 hours.
Trust me on this. 12 Rounds will be worth your time. Unlike others, I am not out of touch, I AM the touch.-Dr.FB
Comic Book fan boys might be shaking in their boots regarding the upcoming movie The Watchmen.
A judge sided with Fox studios that they do indeed own a copyright interest in the movie Warner Bros. is releasing in 2009..or at least is slated to be released in 2009. Not only do they have an interest in it, they have a right to actually distribute it. In the 80's Fox picked up the rights to the film but dropped trying to make it.
Other movie studios such as Paramount & Universal were approached but none picked up on it til Warner Bros. did a few years back.
Now, Warner Bros. will have to either let the case go to court in late January OR be prepared to negotiate.
Warner Bros. would be making a huge mistake by letting this go to court. The longer this goes on, the more money they are gonna be handing over to Fox. Straight up stupidity for not checking on this before even shooting the movie. They could have bought the rights from Fox for anywhere between 5-10 million and now is anywhere between 10-50 million.
DC comics was purchased by Time Warner in the 90's, which a huge reason why all DC comics are made and distributed by Warner Bros. The music, television and movie groups all ran under different umbrellas are Warner Bros. could have been the biggest company around. Now, the music division is in turmoil. Gone is the huge television hit of "Friends". Through it all, the movie side was holding up.
I do feel for the WB in this but seriously, the rights should have been bought before the movie. They should have looked into it. Horrible move as Warner Bros. had no watchmen watching.-Dr.FB
