"Multiples theories for the decline [in the summer box office] abound: a failure of studio marketing, the rising price of gas, the lure of alternate entertainment, even the prevalence of commercials and pesky cellphones inside once-sacrosanct theaters.

-Sharon Waxman,

From the same article:

"Audiences have gotten smart to the marketing, and they can smell the good ones from the bad ones at a distance."
-Michael Lynton, Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman


So, first today Robertson says his Chavez comment was taken out of context, "misinterpreted," and that he didn't say "assassinate." Now he's apologizing. What a tool. Can't wait for The Daily Show tonight.

-Pat Robertson
