Looks like I was right when I predicted that KK would be all hype and not much business. Check out BOM, KK has had a fairly unimpressive opening thus far. A huge short coming for all those who believed that KK would smash BO records and possibly even surpass Titanic. It seems the Internet and the media created massive expectations for KK, when all they did was set it up for a massive fall. Unless KK has extroidanary legs or something, I think its safe to say that ROTS is the BO champion of 2005. Its time to get out your star wars themed party gear and rejoice, ROTS is king of 2005. After some thinking I think I have come up with some fairly good reasons why KK wasn't the huge hit people thought it would be ( at least its opening couple of days anyway), here they are. KK long length- Most people are rushing around trying to get things ready for christmas, who has the time to spend 3 hours in a cinema. KK themes- After some world events this year, people want to watch a happy film at the movies, not a film about the exploits of humans and tragedy. I think the movie would have done much better during next years summer season. Remakes of a remake- I think people are becoming tired of remakes, believe or not people do like originality. There are some other reasons I could tell you but I think you have heard enough. There are also some things that the movie has got that you would think would attract the masses, such as good reviews, good actors and a good director. The general audience behaivour can be very hard to gauge. Like I said earlier, unless KK has some miracle run like titanic did, or a huge surge in interest I think ROTS will finish the year as BO king. Do you agree? P.S- I know some of you don't really care about the BO, but to have the movie you like finish at the top says something about its popularity and effect on society. Please don't turn this thread into a PJ versus GL or PT versus LOTR argument, lets keep discussion about ROTS BO victory etc.
