They might nowadays, becasue Game of Thrones is folding and suddenly everyone will be desperate to get the Fantasy Arc demo to watch THEIR channel. They will have to find some way to add Tits though. Its a bit like after B5 every Sci Fi show pretended to have an overall story arc for a while.

Sometimes irony is pretty ironic.

They're still planning on doing a TV series but are looking for a cable channel to partner with. The box office numbers probably aren't going to make that a particularly tempting prospect.

I went to see this today and the theater was almost empty.  This isn't going to end well.

Box office mojo is saying it's probably going to open at around $18-19 million for the weekend on a $60 million budget. I'm thinking this is going to be a HUGE bomb.

It's too bad because I REALLY like Idris Elba and would like to see him in...everything.  I was disappointed when I heard Danial Craig was coming back as James Bond only because it meant Elba wouldn't be playing the character. Heartbreak

A 60 million budget almost guarantees it will do well with overseas viewers, I'm surprised it was that low.

I was a bit shocked myself, considering the stars in it, but yeah, it'll probably break even with overseas. It'll still be considered a flop though. And I'm assuming that such a small budget is why it's only 95 minutes.

It's a deeply mediocre movie. It's just "there." Everything is telegraphed, nothing is remarkable. The performances are all adequate. The jokes are all mildly amusing. If it comes on cable, you watch it because it's on. You get the idea.

Sorry, my bar for watching something just because it's on is Shawshank Redemption.

That's a really low bar.

It's way too long and not something I'd watch just because it was on? For me it would be a low bar - there are many many things I'd rather watch if I saw they were on TV.

My bar is Zoolander, but it is more of a shame guide than a bar, if I am watching a movie and think hmm I would rather be watching Zoolander then I feel embarrassed that I am actually watching whatever it is, I usually don't turn it off though.

Jaws and Shawshank are the bar....
