Random Factoid #164

8 01 2010

Since I just talked about Box Office Mojo in my factoids, I thought I might share with you some interesting response I gave to polls on the site.

Q: What is your most anticipated movie of 2009?
A: “Watchmen”

Q: What will be the top-grossing December [2009] release?
A: “Sherlock Holmes”

Q: What will be the highest-grossing September [2009] release?
A: “Jennifer’s Body”

Just a sampling of my bad prognostication.  Somewhere on the site In Contention, I commented that I thought “Avatar” would not make more than $250 million domestically.

Don’t feel bad. When “No Country for Old Men” came out, I predicted it would be out of theaters within a week because the masses wouldn’t come see a Coen film.

I don’t know if I would say that “the masses” came out to see “No Country for Old Men,” but the people that were very interested in knowing one of the movies nominated for an Oscar that year did (other than people that follow awards season, I’m fairly certain that this doesn’t share the same crowd with “Juno.”)

The Coens really haven’t had a big hit…only cult ones. So I can see where you are coming from with that.

I didn’t think anyone would see Avatar, either. It just all seems so silly.
