ONE of HOLLYWOOD's FAVORITE GIMMICKS IS CALLED "COUNTER-PROGRAMMING" -- OPENING a MEDIOCRE MOVIE in COMPETITION with a BLOCK-BUSTER, in HOPES of GARNERING LEFT-OVERS from MULTIPLEXES WHERE the BLOCK-BUSTER IS SELLING OUT.

BUT http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/star_trek_11/ - STAR TREK LOOKS LIKE MORE THAN JUST a BLOCK-BUSTER -- IT LOOKS LIKELY to SUCK UP 80% OR MORE of ALL TICKET SALES for the SECOND WEEKEND of MAY. AND TREK IS ALSO OPENING on a RECORD NUMBER of SCREENS (OVER 4,000 NATIONWIDE) MEANING THERE MAY NOT BE ANY LEFT-OVERS for http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=354&PN=1 - NEXT DAY AIR to CATCH LIKE CRUMBS from a BANQUET TABLE.

NEXT DAY NOT ONLY LOOKS LIKE IT COULDN'T CHALLENGE EVEN a MID-RANGE MOVIE for BOX OFFICE DOMINANCE, IT ALSO LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING THAT SHOULD MAYBE HAVE BEEN RELEASED "DIRECT-to-COMEDY-CENTRAL"...

SO BASICALLY WHAT YOU HAVE HERE IS a "LOSE/LOSE" PROPOSITION.

GUESS WE'LL KNOW by MONDAY MORNING JUST HOW MUCH NEXT DAY LOST...

3 of NEXT DAY's PRODUCERS: "We realize the only way to get anyone into theatres for this...is at gunpoint!"

No one ever accused the studio heads of being geniuses... Releasing a film like this opposite Star Trek may be a great way to see it hit DVD before the end of June...

It's got a good enough cast... or at least Donald Faison and Mos Def, both of whom I like a lot.

This reminds me of last year when Uwe Boll tried to get Postal in over a thousand theatres to counter-program against Indy Nukes the Fridge.  When all was said and done, Postal wasn't lucky enough to land in even a dozen theatres, and Boll cried "censorship" (much like the boy who cried wolf).

In no way is Next Day Air gonna be as bad as Postal was, and it probably could garner a thousand screens, unlike Postal ever will.  Still, Next Day Air sounds like chokesville -- and going up against Star Trek, it's gonna be a slaughter.

Um, yes, you think studios would just buy a clue and NOT release anything opposite "Star Trek". When there's a shoe-in blockbuster coming out, and you can't count it with a blockbuster of your own, just wait until next week. That, or put your movie out Direct-to-DVD, which is what they should have done with this movie.

PS: Mos Def is usually the saving grace of any movie he is in.

I imagine that what the studio thinks is going to happen is that the crowd that doesn't want to be called "Trekkies" will head to see Next Day Air instead. There could be a surprising number of those types out there this weekend...

In other words, "Next Day Air" is doomed, no matter what...

Leave it to Lucas to ruin the two most popular and successful movie series of all time. Maybe while he's at it, he can form a production company with Michael Bay, Uwe Boll, and Seltzerberg. Together, they will rule the movie universe, and by "rule", I mean "destroy".

Michael Bay should be good at destroying things... I mean, his Explosions-per-minute ratings are pretty high. Together with George Lucas, I shudder to think of what they could do to our universe... Adding Boll and Seltzerberg to the mix... *shudders* The speed at which the universe could crumble would be impossible to calculate...

I have to do something rare here, and disagree with dEd. I'd rather sit through a second helping of Wolverine... sure, the story was screwed up, and the story-telling tended to be inconsistent, but at least it had some fun moments... I don't think I was ever interested by the Next Day Air trailer (and I have seen it at least a dozen times now). And considering how Hollywood likes to put all the best scenes from their movies in the trailer, that does not bode well for Next Day Air...

Wolverine wasn't THAT bad, but it was kind of bad. Definitely doesn't need a second viewing. Next Day Air looks like something I'd probably fall asleep to, and need to try to watch at least 3 times to make it through. But hey, it'll be on Comedy Central in a couple of months probably.

Yeah, I suppose Comedy Central has sunk that low before....

Wait a minute there... This is supposed to be a comedy... But... I haven't chuckled at all during the trailer... And I at least get one chuckle out of most comedy trailers... Hell I remember getting almost 3/4 of a chuckle from the Good Luck Chuck trailer... But I suppose there I might have been distracted by Jessica Alba... and the chuckle might have been for teh joke that was her career...

Comedy Central chooses the movies it airs based on price, and price alone. Quality almost never factors in. Next Day Air looks like gold compared to... Neekle Beedfords Crazy Adventure or whatever the hell that one movie was called.

The title was at least as bad as that one movie Troy McClure did on The Simpsons... the one after he was dating Patty (or Selma. I forget which one is the lesbian and which one's been married to like 8 men.)

I don't know if there really is any distinction between Patty and Selma... the two are rarely seen apart, so that the animators don't have to actually identify which is which. I'd imagine if you watched the episodes the one they identify as a lesbian would likely change... But what do I know, I wasn't even aware either one was a lesbian...

"Star Trek" made $31 million on Friday. Maybe, just maybe, this movie will stop it from making the other $69 million it needs. Stranger things have happened before.


Posted By: CriticalFrank
Date Posted: May 09 2009 at 9:41am

Box Office Mojo shows the friday estimates to be only 24 mil....

Perhaps that other 7 mil you are talking about was from the Thursday night preview shows, which absolutely KILLED in the box office considering I don't think there were any before 7 PM, and it still managed to clobber Wolverine which was open all day, nearly 2 to 1...

But between Next Day Air, and Wolverine, I think Star Trek is not going to manage to bolbly go where no man has gone before, and will likely fall into a very disappointing 70 mil weekend take...

That's some Fox News worthy reporting right there!

In reality: this movie made $4 million. Yes, on par with just about any movie made by Uwe Boll!

Meanwhile, "Star Trek" made $76 million and "Wolverine" is up to a sickening $130 million! Poor Trekkies can't catch a break.



Posted By: dEd Grimley
Date Posted: May 10 2009 at 5:56am
Star Trek still has another week... and $130 sounds kinda high... you sure? I thought it was closer to like $110-120. Not that it really needs that.

I had a thought about Wolverine the other day... about how Hugh Jackman fought so hard to get it made, and how he likes to say that he's Wolverine. I'm fairly confident that he's so gung-ho about being Wolverine solely to balance out the other movies that he's in... like... Kate and Leopold, and Australia, and the surpringly immasculating Van Helsing.

Which brings up another point, and I'm not just typing a lot because I'm incredibly bored and can't leave the spot I'm in for another 1/2-1 hour... The director of the upcoming GI Joe movie is the guy who did The Mummy and Van Helsing... so... I mean, if you didn't think this movie was going so suck, you really should start.

Hell, if I starred in "The Fountain" I'd be doing everything in my power to distract the movie-going masses... perhaps going so far as to use up any accumulated wealth to buy up every single copy of the DVD, so that it could be buried in the desert next to the Atari ET game... perhaps burning all original reels of the film, too... just to be safe...

I've still never seen The Fountain, and I had a friend who insists that I should. I'll eventually get around to it. It kind of seems like one of those movies that I'd need a girl to sort of nudge me into seeing. I've been noticing that about a lot of movies lately. Like I feel like I should see something, but I'd really just rather rent a Kung Fu movie.

Oh yes, of course "GI Joe" is going to suck. But will it suck worse than "Transformers 2"? All I want to know about "GI Joe" is if they are going to use the classic "Now I know, and knowing is half the battle!" slogan. Maybe they'll add another half to the slogan, like "What's the other half? Killing Commie bastards!".

I think it's likely that it will. The Mummy movies were amongst the stupidest of all times. I can understand their not winning a Razzie, but they certainly are on par with whatever won in their respective years.

The Mummies got progressively worse... I think the third one was a sort of exponential leap, though...

But beyond that, I have really low expectations for GI Joe... I know that it's going to suck, and that IS half the battle.

Speaking of Michael Clark Duncan playing Mike Tyson, here's some more trivia that I can't remember if I've brought up before:

In Street Fighter II in Japan, the last boss's name is Vega. The guy in the mask is Balrog. And the boxer's name is Mike Bison. They shuffled them all around to avoid a legal fight with Mike Tyson, who is the obvious inspiration for what we know here as Balrog. The Balrog who was played by Michael Clark Duncan in the recent Street Walkerfighter movie.
I'd like to see George Hamilton as Super Machoman, Lil John as Mr. Sandman, Justin Long as Glass Joe, and Yakov Smirnoff as Soda Popinski.

If he does get one, I just hope Michael Bay doesn't get his hands into that one...

Not to rip off South Park, but I see it being made by the modern "Ocean's Twodigitnumber" crew.

That would be interesting... But Then they'd have to have George Clooney in there... The Ocean's Twodigitnumber crew loves them some George Clooney.

Clooney would make a great Rahm Emmanuel.

Well, as long as George gets a roll, all wil be well. Wasn't Matt Damon in the Ocean movies, too? You got a roll for him?

Matt Damon as Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, in which he refuses to break character and believes the real world is actually the world of Bourne!

Jason Bourne, interesting choice of rolls for Matt Damon. But I suppose it works in the Political movie...

I still like The Rock in the role of Barack. They have practically the same voice. And then he could fight Bourne for control of the Illuminati Sceptre.

The Rock fighting Matt Damon. That alone is reason enough for the movie to be watched. But only if Matt Damon can call on his good friend Ben Affleck for help. The two of them vs the Rock, would almost be as fun as the Joe Pesci battle we are speaking of in another forum.

For some reason, I suddenly have the urge to throw some Pokemon into the mix.

Why stop with Pokemon, why not unleash the power of Brenda Song!?

I'm having a hard time figuring out who Brenda Song could play... Maybe Janet Reno?

I'll admit, I actually had to look up this Brenda Song... I was thinking for the Political movie, she'd probably make a better Pelosi.... Janet Reno is a little....out-dated.

Oh yea, I suppose they could have her as Pelosi, but I've always thought that Pelosi should be played by Mary Scheer playing Dixie Wetsworth from Cabana Chat on MadTV.
Does this not scream Pelosi?

I thought MWG's hair would be shorter than that. Sorry, had to get that "troll" joke out of me. No more after this, I swear.

I had a picture of them side by side on my computer at home at one point. It's really eerie.
