Almost $30M for 300


Friday’s estimate: $27,800,000. Seeing it tomorrow, IMAX-style, so we’ll see if I can get over the lack of character development, thanks to the overabundance of gore and slo-motion. In related 300 news, hear about the Watchman frame snuck inside the online R-rated trailer? Check it out here.

    Yeah that one frame is cool – snyder seems cool i dont really hate him but i do dislike the movie more everytime i think about it…70 mil…it’ll slide probaly 55% or more next weekend but what does it matter really, when it already made back its whole budge in the first three days.  So fuck me.

    I didn’t get a chance to see it (Jess got sick), so hopefully this week I’ll see for myself.

    Still, I’m not sure what’s more shocking $70M for 300 (not so much) or the other $28M for fucking Wild Hogs again??  What am i missing?  The third flick to rank on the BO meter is Bridge to Terabithia at $6M, $22M less than Wild Fucking Hogs.

    Something has happened.  Something very dangerous.

    Viral Internet marketing was likely responsible for the astonishing success of Warner Bros.’ 300 over the weekend, the Los Angeles Times indicated today (Tuesday). The newspaper observed that the movie, which earned nearly $71 million over the weekend, originally got a big push at last year’s Comic-Con convention in San Diego when the movie’s visuals excited attendees. Berge Garabedian who runs the fanboy website Joblo, told the newspaper that many websites like his began hyping the movie. “Everybody was talking about it,” he said. Warner Bros. then developed a MySpace page for the film, including a feature upgrade on the 300 site that permitted users to store 300 photos on their profile. That “stroke of genius,” as the Times referred to the photo ploy, resulted in billions of ad impressions and 8 million viewings of the trailer for the film. 300 went into the record books as the third-biggest opening of an R-rated movie in history (after The Passion of the Christ and The Matrix Reloaded). It was also the biggest opening of any film debuting in March and he biggest IMAX opening.

    Worldwide revenue from pornography amounted to at least $97 billion in 2006, according to the Internet site TopTenReviews.com. In a review of software filters, the website claimed that more than $3 million is spent on pornography every second. Although most pornographic films and photographs available on the Internet are produced in the U.S., the Chinese were the biggest buyers, spending $27.4 billion last year, the website said. The U.S. was fourth on the list with $13.3 billion, followed by South Korea, with 25.7 billion, and Japan, with $20 billion. The website surveyed only the top 20 countries.
