What would be required of the film for it to motivate the average movie audience to purchase a ticket? What novel elements does it lack?I did not see anything to suggest that this movie was something the average movie audience had not already seen before to the point that they would find motivation to go out of their way and buy a ticket.
Your gut is very specific.I see more than enough to suggest this same audience would show more than a spark of interest in buying the Blu-ray, watching on Netflix/iTunes/Amazon Instant Video.
What would you need to see to be convinced the film will be successful theatrically?So really, it wasn't anything specific in the new trailer. It was every bit of what I didn't see in the new trailer with no specificity.
