It's a really good flick, jadie. Only letdown is if you think it's going to be a gladiator/ braveheart-pseado movie (Hint: It's not quite up to par

Except Braveheart was shit. So if you're suggesting KA isn't as good as that should I be worried? I mean even Gladiator was not that good...

It's disappointing to see it do so badly...maybe they should've kept it back til Christmas after all?

I'll ignore your rant on Gladiator/Braveheart
But does anyone think it would have even compared to ROTK last Xmas?

Errr...I didn't really rant about Gladiator, which was ok, QUITE good...Braveheart was SHIT.

And it would've been THIS Christmas...Christmas 2004, not last Christmas...why does everyone get that wrong? It hadn't even finished filming last Christmas.

If I'm not mistaken, I think Haz was refering to this upcoming Christmas.

But to answer your question, it would've had a better chance against ROTK than Spiderman 2. Spiderman has more appeal to the little ones, teenagers, and adults alike because they grew up with him with the popular comics and cartoon. I can bet no one ever heard of Frodo and the Ring before the movie came out.

Well it's still in the Top 10 this weekend in the States. It's at No.9 after taking another $3.1m.

Arrow Bad News

I just saw Bourne II, and it was really good. The theater was packed. On a Sunday afternoon! I, Robot will drop to #2, with Spidey close behind. Hopefully KA will have enough to knock Sleepover off the top 10 (fingers crossed).

You'd be wrong there mate. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was the Second Most Read Book of the 20th Century (behind the Bible, of course) and on of the best selling books of all time. More people have read LotR worldwide than have read Spiderman. And that's a fact.

Yeah, I did see the Bourne Supremacy, and it was freaking awesome, one of Matt Damon's finest works, and some of the best car chase scenes in recent memory(better than the Matrix:Reloaded by a long shot). Oh, my appologies for mixing up the Christmas' in my last few posts. Still one of the better movies of the summer KA is, only now it will have to deal w/ S2, I,Robot, Supremacy, and Next week, the Village. Dosen't look good for the Round Table... :icon_redf

Speaking of a book...

The Bourne series, I, Robot, Spiderman, and LoTR are all based on some sort of literature. These are the most successful movies in recent history. This may just be a coincidence.

The Bourne Supremacy was fantastic. I love Matt Damon.

As for K.A., it is officially a bomb in my town. My movie theater is losing it on Friday. An embarrassingly short run. Too bad.

Question wow

What city do you live in? How many screens does your theater have? At the theater I go to with 24 screens, it is in 1 full time and another 1/2 time. At the theater with 30 screens that I go to, KA is in 2 screens. I don't think it will last much longer now, with the 3 screen release of Bourne II and the 2 that Spidey and other movies take up.

Coincidence, or maby because the directors/producers/actors/whoever involved is extremely talented, and spark the interest of millions of fans worldwide. Also, millions of people have read the books first, and were excited to see them evolve into the big screen.

Estimates are in for this weekend in the US and finds KA down to No.16:
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekend...wknd=31&p=.htm

UK figures are out on Tuesday night. Think it'll be No.1 ? It would be nice, in Arthur's homeland, after all ! (although I did enjoy Garfield, also out last Friday, but perhaps that was because of JLH's presence)
