Dear MR: I suspect you are a spokesperson/fan of RPatts, but don't try to convince me that his movies are box office hits. When Remember Me came out, he was at his peak of fame, it was expected to be his chance to show to the world that he could open a movie. Instead, it made only $19 million in America, was critically panned, and got him a Razzie nomination for Worst Actor. Nobody apart from his fans would call that a success.
I have commented before that I liked Water for Elephants, and don't see the need for a him to get a nomination for it. But the movie did only decent numbers (and that with the help of two Oscar winners in leading roles) while his acting still didn't convince the critics.
Lastly, Breaking Dawn is trailing New Moon by millions of dollars, and even more vs. Eclipse. Internationally we will have to wait and see, but Summit is expecting to make 228 Mio, that means they expect it to end up at 650 Mio.
I haven't written RPatts off, but in Breaking Dawn he delivered only one line and one scene that I liked. That is 100% more than what I liked about Adam Sandler, and 0.1% than what I like when I watch a Geoffrey Rush.
He deserves a spot up there, whether you like it or not.
