    Playing a little "6 degrees"

    Amy Adam's co-star in "Enchanted" was James Marsden who starred in "Superman Returns" as Richard White.


    Maybe if Cavill's Superman leaves for a few years Lois will be bound by unknown forces to find a Richard White who looks like James Marsden again.

    James Marsden is a universal constant

    Wow, I hope it averages out, but at the moment it looks like the film's tomato meter went rotten.

    And it hasn't even opened yet.

    It is still at 61% which is fresh but just barley. I still think the reviews do not put me off of this movie.

    The movie is review-proof, for gods' sake. Relax.

    Maybe, maybe not. I am sure it will do a huge opening weekend but if the reviews are bad and people don't like it, then word of mouth could make it under perform.

    Seeing it Saturday afternoon and can't wait. The score is amazing. Hans has outdone himself again, and hopefully I might also pick up Movie Masters Suited General Zod if he's arrived at the comic shop :)

    Yes, which means it's review-proof.

    It's going to do a huge opening weekend. This is because the reviews don't matter.

    If people don't like it and give it poor WOM, then it could under-perform.

    You know what the correlation between reviews and WOM is?

    Bupkis.

    Star Trek Into Darkness had 87% Fresh and has made 380 million, give or take, worldwide.

    Fast & Furious 6 had only 71% Fresh and currently has made 589 million worldwide, with a week less in theaters thus far.

    No movie is review proof, not even (sadly) this one.

    Wrong. Actually, most blockbusters are.

    One can point to the movies that everybody hates - reviewers and moviegoers alike - as some kind of evidence that reviewers "influence" the audience, but there's no good correlation between the success of these big-budget summer blowouts and reviews at all.

    If there were, Michael Bay would be taking my lunch order at Tastee Diner.

    You know what movie has an RT rating lower than the one Man Of Steel has today? Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.

    BTW, the most successful film in history had a "Fresh" rating slightly lower than Star Trek Into Darkness.

    There's no consistent correlation between reviews and box office performance, nor between critical opinion and the reaction of the moviegoing public. The Great Gastby has a 50% rating on RT (30% from top critics), but a 72% audience rating (and a 7.5 rating on IMDB), and it's had a pretty leggy run at the box office.

    I see what you're saying. The critics may not be Kryptonite to this movie but word of mouth may do some damage if the fans do not like it also.

    For comparison, The Avengers had 296 reviews (a 92%) MoS sits right now at 120 reviews. So when more reviews come out tonight/tomorrow the pendulum could swing the other way.

    Yep. Word of mouth matters, but almost no one stays away from this kind of flick because of bad reviews.

    By the measure of nominal dollars, Avatar is the winner, yes.

    Box Office Mojo doesn't have a worldwide adjusted for inflation chart, only domestic. But it looks like Gone with the Wind would easily be the winner in adjusted sales, worldwide, since it wins the adjusted domestic hands down, and since it made about the same amount foreign as domestic.

    It's probably meaningful on point only to talk about recent history.

    Speaking for myself, if it keeps teetering on rotten, I'm gonna find something else to do this weekend.
