"The Viking subject matter is not interesting, the marketing push has been weak, and lead actor Karl Urban is no commercial draw."

And Gerard Butler is?

But that movie was marketed to death. Pathfinder won't do jack.

I agree... but that statement just seemed completely irrelevant.

I won't see "Pathfinder" at the cinema, but it'll make for a good dvd hire. It seems like a movie I would've loved, had it been released in the 80s.

Oh, and it's a shame "Sunshine" isn't being released in the US for ages because it's easily the best release this week. I loved it. It's like "Solaris" "Event Horizon" and "2001" all mashed into one. Obviously not for everyone, but the cinematography involving the sun is just fantastic.

Good to hear, I can hardly wait to see Sunshine.

They're severely underestimating Disturbia. The marketing and reviews have been solid. It will no doubt top the box office this weekend.
