Yeah, my best friend is pushing to go see Wrath. I probably will, with low expectations. Which is a good way to enjoy a movie unexpectedly. Better than high hopes that get dashed.

See I really don't get where that number came from. Are they referring to the fact that it did not make $250 million in the US on opening weekend? Because if so then yes it did bomb, in that regard, and yes it did 'lose' about $200 million.

However, to date the thing has grossed about $235 million worldwide, which is a far cry from those $200 million losses. Unless they are also referring to every single act of advertising and marketing, and if that ran them about $200 million well then..

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Disney have stated they expect to lose $200 Million on the film by the end of March when they close their books for the year. By the end of the year the DVD will be out etc and they will make some more of their money back. That's also not counting money from cinemas if it stays on screens into April.

I doubt it will make it very far into April anywhere except independents. Shame really as i haven't seen it yet

To those who have seen it, what's the language/violence like? My 6 year old is interested in seeing it, but 12a's range from timid to horrifying lately.
