Home Uncategorized Madonna’s Super Bowl Show Didn’t Send Fans to Theaters: $4K Monday for...

Madonna was great at the Super Bowl. Everyone agrees. She was spot on, perfect. But her performance did not send theatregoers to the movies on Monday to see “W.E.” At four theaters– two in New York, two in Los Angeles–the total total total take was $4,719. That means — if tickets were $10– that 470 Madonna fans in the country’s two hippest cities got up off their couches and said, “Let’s see W.E.” That’s not good. Monday is always a down day at the box office, but that is really down. Let’s hope “W.E.” is a distant memory when Madonna plays Yankee Stadium on September 6th…Clint Eastwood’s excellent commercial for the Super Bowl and Chrysler didn’t help “J. Edgar.” It took in just a little more than “W.E.”–about $4,800–on Monday. I think “J. Edgar” got a bum rap, frankly…Two other films that are pretty much done at the box office–both of Michael Fassbender’s starring roles–“Shame” and “A Dangerous Method.” Two terrific films. Fassbender is the next big thing. But with “Shame,” the lack of ads because of the NC-17 rating, etc. was just too much to overcome. They’ll each be big rentals/DVDs/downloads, no doubt…
