Oh man, it's very sad... I was there on the german opening weekend, on the first day, in a large theater and there were only about 25 people to watch it. That's really bad. Something's gone wrong here. I haven't seen even one clip on TV or any other advertising and merchandising. People in Germany hardly know that the flick is on anyway! Plus, because of the more or less bad success in the USA, it isn't played in all theaters. I had to drive about an hour to get to the nearest one that does. Next week it's even not gonna be on the programme anymore.<br>I just can't believe that for it's such a great movie! A comedy of Jim probably would have become a blockbuster... People are stupid.<br><!--EZCODE EMOTICON START >: --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/mad.gif ALT=">:"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Nadine<br> <p></p><i></i>

The Majestic - opening weekends

Postby beccajimcarrey » Sun Jun 09, 2002 3:31 am

Hey! Don't be sad~ There are many ways to explain it, for example, In Hong Kong "The Majestic"(25/4) showed almost at the same period as "The Spiderman"(2/5). For "The Spiderman", they spend heavy budget on the advertising, i can see many spiderman plastic model on top of the railway station~ that's very attractive. However, The Majestic didn't made great effort in the adverising, i only see a poster in the railway station, and some advertising in the newspaper(*printing in black and white!!!)...<br>That's why many people were not aware of it, even they did, they prefer watching Spiderman to Majestic...<br>So... don't be sad, it's not the failure of Jim or his acting skill... This is his first time trying to act a role which is so serious(i mean not funny).<br><br>He is successful, at least he is the top in our mind, right? <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br>And i strongly feel that "Bruce Almighty" will be another great movie of Jim next year, just read the description of this movie, i am very interested in it!!!<br><br>Failure isn't failure unless you give up! -Jim Carrey<br><br>P.S. Sorry <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :( --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/frown.gif ALT=":("><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> My english is not good, hope you understand what i mean. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br><!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :verab --><img src=http://jimcarreyonline.com/board/graphics/vera.gif ALT=":verab"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <- Lovely~ Lovely!!! <p></p><i></i>

Yeah, I see your point! It's true that is has been an unhappy time to start it. We have Spiderman here, too. And other big movies. We didn't have any adverstising in Germany, either.<br>But, you know, the thing that annoys me is just that people only go for those big ones. That's sad! Jim's serious stuff fails, he's still not accepted as serious actor. People only want to see more Liar and Irene stuff. Of course Bruce Almighty's gonna be a hit! I'm looking forward to it, too. But people simply don't recognize what great job Jim does in serious stuff like The Majestic. They're not even interested. They're so blind and plain... so easily satisfied. That's what makes me sad and angry with the people. They don't know what they're missing. The Majestic is amazing!<br><br>Nadine<br><br>PS: Hope you understand me, too (concerning my English)! <p></p><i></i>

Agree Agree!<br><br>A good actor should take all opportunities to try different role, no matter funny or serious...<br><br>Perhaps the audience really need to take time to accept a new style of Jim.<br><br><!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lukeb --><img src=http://jimcarreyonline.com/board/graphics/luke.gif ALT=":lukeb"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>
