I didn’t mention the sad 63% drop suffered by Miami Vice this weekend, but obviously not enough people agreed with critics that the dense aroma of that film — the visual “fumes,” as I put it two or three weeks ago — more than made up for a not-that-great story and an emotional current that could have been stronger. It’ll be a push for Vice to reach $60 million domestic, which won’t cover prints and marketing. The Vice shortfall may not prove as much of a bath for Universal as Poseidon was for Warner Bros., but it’s in that vicinity. I don’t know what this means as far as Mann’s next film is concerned, but having to work with less money is never a bad thing creatively. Look at what Scorsese did with After Hours and The Last Temptation of Christ during his late ’80s down period.
