Let me get this straight: the perfectly dreadful Fantastic Four, a film so awful it makes you briefly toy with the idea of never going to a movie again, made $56.1 million last weekend and because people just blindly paid to see to this piece of shit despite overwhelming indications they were in for a bad time…this means the slump is over? The forces driving The Big Fade are not going to turn on the fortunes of a single crappy movie, trust me. I’ll say it again — it’s not the money, it’s the attendance. ’05 theater admissions are down about 10.4% from ’04 and just shy of 8% from ’03. Summer admissions are off almost 14% from 2004 and roughly 9.5% from 2003.
