That's been brewing for a while.
Ah, Hollywood studio politics.

Reading the article about people ignoring each other on the long plane ride to the MOS premiere, while Nolan was sitting nearby made me chuckle.

Never get on a plane with Nolan! He'll pull some "Inception" crap on you.

The Robinov stuff does sound childish


Just because some people gives you the cold shoulder, you pick up your toys and walk off in a huff?

He sounds like he's full of himself.

Robinov- No one came to congratulate me when "MOS" made 125 million. Screw you guys i'm going home!.

Yeah, it definitely sounds like he's throwing a temper tantrum.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Triumvirates seems to be a popular thing with Warner Brothers. The conversation with Affleck is a fascinating read too. I also didn't know that Nolan was considering to direct "Troy".

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Man of Steel has grossed $168,790,947 in its first week, enough to make it the 22nd highest-grossing superhero film of all time, according to Box Office Mojo. They predict the film will pull in another $47 million this weekend. If so, it will pass Batman Begins, Superman Returns, Batman Forever, Thor, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Captain America: The First Avenger.

No, it doesn't sound that way at all.

Robinov's being pushed out. What his representatives are doing in response to that is what they're employed to do, which is to protect his career interests as best they can.

Man of Steel should end up as the 10th highest grossing superhero film domestically and probably the 8th or 9th highest grossing superhero film worldwide.

Kinda surprised at the dropoff on Friday. I figured positive word of mouth would make more of a difference, but people clearly were more interested in seeing Pixar and Brad Pitt this week.

Positive what now? Man of Steel is a love it or hate it film with a low RT score. That's not positive word of mouth.

Audience word-of-mouth has been very positive. Its audience rating on RT is like thirty points higher than its critics rating.

Once the international numbers for the full weekend are in Man of Steel should be over $400 million worldwide. Superman Returns made $391 million in its entire run.
