HUH?

This article I found fascinating.  It’s about several currently running movies starring women- IDENTITY THIEF, MAMA, SAFE HAVEN, and Berry’s THE CALL.

Not really being in the industry, I seriously wondered why Reuters contributor, Todd, Cunningham, suggested, “You don’t want to make too much of the success of those films…. While hits, none of the them are blockbusters; “Identity Thief” is at $123 million domestic, “Mama” at $71 million and “Safe Haven” $66 million. And this is typically a slow season at the box office.”

I get the part of the money.  Even $123M isn’t big money for a blockbuster.

But WHY NOT MAKE SOMETHING of the SUCCESS of these films.  And of the fact that adverts highlighted the women stars and were directed towards a female audience.  I, for one, think the writing’s on the wall and nobody’s reading it.

Here, let me assist:

“PEOPLE BUY TICKETS TO WATCH WOMEN ACT.”  

repeat … “PEOPLE BUY TICKETS TO WATCH WOMEN ACT.”

Bravo, Halle, by the way.  And, hey, read the following article:
