SEND A MESSAGE TO HOLLYWOOD – BUY A TICKET!
People outside of “the industry” do not appreciate how much importance is attached to a movie’s opening weekend. Religious people tend to stay away from a new release until a few weekends have gone by…or, much more devastatingly to our hopes of changing the film industry, to wait for things to come out on video. No. No. No.
Whomever wins opening weekend rules the world. Everything about the future release schedule, television and ancillary distribution is tied to the performance of a film on opening weekend. Please go see Gods and Generals this weekend in support of a wonderful, worthy project made by one of our own.
I wrote a long article on the film for Liguorian. If Catholic Exchange doesn’t run it soon, I’ll reprint it here.
Meanwhile. GO SEE GODS AND GENERALS ON FEBRUARY 21. OR ELSE ON THE 22ND. OR ELSE THE 23RD. GO.
