Likely To BOMB!

| Filed under: Film Flickers

speedracer.jpg

The latest film directed by the "mysterious" Wachowski brothers, Speed Racer, might not do as well as hoped for in the box office this weekend.

The BIG budget movie will open this Friday in about 3,600 screens across the U.S.

Unfortunately for the film, it's been receiving very unimpressive ratings in its pre-release surveys.

So will Iron Man win at the box office this weekend again?

Last weekend, Iron Man made over $100 million!

At the moment, Speed Racer seems like it will gross about $25-$35 million during its opening weekend, though it might gross more. But, estimates are low.

This is a BIG disappointed considering how much it cost to make the race car comic book adaptation - well over $100 million, easily.

So, even if Iron Man makes only half of what it did last weekend, it's still likely to come in first again and beat out Speed Racer.

Ouch!

Warner Bros. domestic distribution president, Dan Fellman, says, "It's too early to tell. But this is the first real family movie of the summer, and we're going to give it our best."

Translation: "We're fucked. And we know it!"

But more importantly, will U go watch?

Are you going to see Speed Racer this weekend???

    I am not a studio plant MetalWater, I am a freshmen at Webster University in St. Louis…my friend interns at WB and I was just in it to see a free movie. The movie is really good..ill admit, it was a bit long for a kids movie…even though it shouldnt be considered a kids movie…I do feel bad because it is getting slaughtered people before it comes out…and another thing MetalWater…you should form your own opinion, I feel bad for you if Rotten Tomato is your guideline to seeing movies and giving them a chance. point is, the movies good…the advertising for the movie sucked…but the movies good, get over it

    Oh and another thing….why does anyone want to see the trailer for Twilight? That movie looks dumb as hell. A vampire in love with a human? How original…nice try…but we've seen it before…Buffy? Oh and they pretty much just made it into a modern Romeo & Juliet, but half the family are vampires. Twilight looks weak, and its been overdone.

    TWILIGHT TRAILER IS IN THIS FILM!!!!!! SO I will be seeing it just for the trailer because Twilight is my drug and i suggest you all to go read the novel or search up Twilight and get to know it. GET INTO IT!!!! This film/book will totally kick Harry Potter butt once it's released on Decemeber 12th this year!!
    Go twilight go twilight go twilight go twilight *dances*

    Much like the failed attempt to make a franchise out of "Thunderbirds", no one cares about "Speed Racer" except 70's kids like me… and I was always more of a "Kimba the White Lion" man, myself.

    JT, if Speed Racer is so great, then how do you explain the 38% crtic's meter rating it received on Rotten Tomatoes.com??? Face it, you are a Plant JT…just admit it and we will forgive you!!!

    This movie looks hoorible. Namely because of the annoying lead actor Emile Hirsch. He is absolutely hideous to look at, so unphotogenic. It is obvious he is some rich Jewish kid who got hooked up in the entertainment industry. It is ridiculous he is getting all these key roles that a million other young actors could have done much better with.

    112

    it will probably do good, because there's a certain movie trailor being realeased with it that a lot of people (mostly girls) want to see

    114

    So, ya, I wasn't into seeing this movie at all but was pleasantly surprised…basically, it was pretty fucking awesome and everyone I was with loved it as well. SO SUCK IT.

    I'm going to see the Twilight teaser trailer attached to it, then I'm going to see something else!

  16. Metal Water says – reply to this


    116

    I saw the Twilight trailer, and sadly it's not great…just better than Speed Racer, which isn't a difficult task!!! Save your money and don't spend it on Speed Racer, just to see the Twilight Trailer, I think you'll feel ripped-off. You can watch the Twilight Trailer instead on Mania.com!!! I am sorry it is not a better teaser, but it looks like they didn't cast very good actors and the direction does not appear to be professional.

    It will do well because it has the twilight trailer at the start - there is a shitload of people who are gonna go because of that

    It's casue they casted a D lister for the lead, who knows that guy anyways, it SHOULD have been Zack Efron. He would have been perfect for the roll.

    Re: JT
    why dont you actually sit down and read twilight before you judge it.
    if you're willing to shell out 8 bucks to see speedracer which got
    horrible reviews why dont you shell out 8 bucks and see twilight
    which has a HUGE fanbase and will actually make money? A way to get
    ahead in this world and actually be liked is to keep an open mind.

    Pamula, I didnt pay to see this movie, I went to the screening of the movie with my friend. Twilight has been done before. I didnt say the book was a shit fest, im saying the movie will be…the casting is terrible, and the cinematography alone in the trailer looks terrbile. believe me Pamula, I am open minded..maybe you should be too towards Speed Racher.

    Re: JT

  32. Kris says – reply to this


    132

    Im only seeing it for the Twilight Trailer!!

    133

    Save your money.. see Speed Racer for Speed Racer.

    Watch the Twilight trailer on line.. it looked like a reject from the WB.. like Dawson's Crrek meets Buffy with a hint of Twin Peaks.

    134

    Twilight can save it.
