back in my home of Oz (in France now) Robin Hood did open for $US 4.9m which was $900,000 more than IM2's 2nd week which was the previous week, which is the equivalent of about a $60m NAmerican opening, i did'nt like and though Crowe sleepwalked through the film so i don't really care how much money it makes, as long as it doesn't take off in the foreign markets like 2012, which it seems like it won't, i really don't wanna talk about RB beyond today, its a new week which will probably be Biutiful week cause i reckon it like win the Palme D'or even though its not as good as Babel and just stuck in the Inarritu runt.

On to something else, do you guys want to use netflix watch instantly? i'm guessing you do if you have a good, disposable internet-plan, so I've been watching 2 films a day on netflix for a week now and have found the one program you'll need (the 7th i've used so far) get it on:

Glad to see there are others out there who like the Patrick Bergin Robin Hood from '91. Mentioned this on the Cinecast as well. Should find that one on DVD at some point.

The foreign market is not less predictable than the US market. There are many films that do well in the USA that do not do well oversea. For example, superhero films do not well oversea. Percentage wise, The Dark Knight and Iron Man did way better in USA than oversea. The first Iron Man had a weak performance oversea. In Japan, for the the opening weekend, The Dark Knight did not crack the top 3. JJ Abraham's Star Trek did not do that well oversea, too. Films with African American leads do not do well oversea.

Even within the foreign market–there tends to be vast variation between regions. For instance, Reservoir Dog, Mama Mia, Garfield did extremely well in the UK. 80's style action films do well the underdeveloped parts of Asia and Latin America. The Davinci Code did astounding business in Continental Europe.
