Summer slump hits US box office
On account of the vast quantities of shit being produced by the major studios, one assumes. Key quote:
French documentary film March of the Penguins was also a surprise hit.
"In an ideal world, people would say 'OK, we have to think more creatively, we have to think outside the box and come up with new and different things'," said Steven Friedlander, head of distribution for Warner Independent Pictures.
"But I'm afraid what's going to happen is, we're all going to sit in a room and say 'We need more penguin movies'.
"So I don't really know what lessons we're going to take out of all this."
Looks like we're better off staying home and watching TV. Or not.
Stab in head? Don't mind if I do...
