Then again, hypothetically speaking, if the pirates were truly the reason for there not being a Kick-Ass: 3, then I think we should all thank them. They spared us another piece of trash sequel completely lacking in merit.
REALLY? Your film sucks and you blame pirates?! SERIOUSLY? She's quoting what the studio/PR agent told her to say because they want to try and guilt trip audiences into believing that THEY'RE the reason movies aren't made. I'm not advocating piracy, but f*cking hell, this statement is idiotic and shameful. I just lost respect for her with such a quote as that.

The reason it didn't do well is because Kick-Ass: 2 is an appalling film in and of itself; written and directed by a complete hack that the studio stupidly chose to head the project. Not only this, but the studio decided it' be best to half-ass marketing and replicate the same posters/art/DVD covers from the first rather than try something new. And then there was ol' Jim tweeting his vituperation for Kick-Ass: 2 for all to see.

There are so many reasons that this film bombed--just as Expendables 3 did. And it's definitely not because of the pirates. It's because these films were simply travesties of the medium and much of the public just didn't give a sh*t the second time around (and in Expendables 3 case--third).

This is why celebrities are just paid to act--not think.

Because Ridley Scott wasn't done sh*tting on every sci-fi classic we hold dear.

I actually like these illustrations over that of the final product... Least they look like turtles here.

@mr-k,

Oh yeah, I bet.

Those looked f*cking terrible. And actually, I didn't mind Pain and Gain for what it was. I expected way sh*ttier, and while overlong--I did enjoy it--especially the music at the beginning when the SWAT team arrives at the gym in slow-motion.

@ed-wood,

Thanks, man! Yeah, Mickle has proven himself one of the best genre director out there. Every flick of his makes me stoked and I can't wait for the next. Though, the ending and plot holes to his last movie, We Are What We Are were rather disappointing.

@mr-k,

Yeah, when I saw it, it was literally only playing at one theatre for like, a week tops.

"... Crafted with moderation, heart and respect for what came before it; Cold in July is one of the best, most dark-heartedly hopeful films of the year..."

@mr-k,

Haha, thanks, bud. It's been awhile since I've done anything as I've just been too busy, but I'll probably start contributing a bit more here and there.

I think the teaser was better--especially the repeated use "Gotta make the money to buy a ticket", but this flick still looks fantastic.
