Awards Daily‘s Sasha Stone, Boxoffice.com’s Phil Contrino and I recorded Oscar Poker #36 on Sunday afternoon. The best part of the discussion happens when we get into the waning career of Jim Carrey (Mr. Popper’s Punguins), and where he seems to be at these days, etc. Do all comedians experience a hot-flash period followed by the inevitable slowdown and decline?
I asked Contrino to explain the bigger-than-expected numbers for Super 8, and the lower-than-expected numbers for X-Men: First Class. The “monster stuff doesn’t work at all,” Sasha said, but her daughter “loved it.” We also discussed two Devin Faraci issues. Here’s a non-iTunes, stand-alone link.
