James Cameron had the bar set high in anticipation of the release of this weekends big sci-fi action film, ‘Avatar’ .
Heh, imagine, a movie that pulls in $73 million and its disappointing for the studios execs.
“The opening was a little soft, with all the bad weather,” Sony distribution president Rory Bruer said.
Sure buddy, it couldn’t be that you’re rubbing your hands together in hope of bringing in over $300 million dollars in one weekend to break even on Avatar, could it????
That would make me sweat too. Want to borrow my lady speed stick?
