    I contributed to that statistic this past weekend. I never actually got around to watching it in the theaters, but I figure I'll spend $20 to watch it on my couch and get all the extras that come with the blu-ray.

    I think this shows how much the die-hards really want to like this movie and want to see them get it right. Even if it means starting over again.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    That is good I suppose. I don't have a burning desire to buy the DVD and have not yet. Being a fan of SK I will probably eventually buy it however if I do I don't plan on watching it again. This is not a passive aggressive protest I just didn't enjoy the movie enough to watch it again.
    Move along. Nothing to see here.

    I would disagree. This tells me that there is a significant number of people that still want to see this franchise do well. We are desperate for something to spend our money on. Hopefully the movie studio will look at this and realize that if they can make this much money on a movie that was considered "bad", just imagine how much they could make on a movie that's actually considered good.

    It's been mentioned before that if done right, this has the potential to be the next LOTR or Harry Potter. The interest is there.

    The interest is there. I Totally agree wit that... BUT not in the work that was done here. And if you look at the numbers... it really wasn't a smash DVD hit. Just was no competition. It could be the next LOTR.. def NOT Potter... the DT is not geared at kids like that is. I would match this more up with Game of Thrones than anything... and that hit the mark cause it is good. And they used the TV medium which made for room. What we got last summer... is dead and no one cares. Not enough people anyways to make a difference.

    Well debuting at #1 by itself only means so much. The film debuted at the box office at #1 as well and it was still considered to be a bomb.

    Looking at the other movies that came out on DVD at the same time as DT they didn't have a whole lot of high-level competition. There was a rerelease of Terminator 2 (a 26 year old film that's had a gazillion releases on DVD at this point) and Halle Berry's 'Kidnap'.

    It's very rare for a film that flopped in theaters to become a big success on home video. Even the ones that do -- stuff like Blade Runner, Donnie Darko, Fight Club, etc -- usually end up becoming cult favorites as opposed to real mainstream successes (as the unfortunate flopping of the Blade Runner sequel can attest to).

    Ironically King's arguably best adaptation Shawshank (IT is my all top fav then this) was a flop at the theater... so i agree with you totally it is VERY rare.

    I was referring to the The Dark Tower IP outside of King's novels in general as opposed to specifically the recent live-action adaptation plus its proposed sequels.

    Watched the first 5 minutes and it's funny, and pretty much correct.

    Is there a "How The Dark Tower should have ended" video as of yet?

    Heh. Really good point about the 'throwing shoe' bit. I felt he was way nitpicking a lot of those points though, but it was amusing, overall.
