Redline Bomb

Well, on a very crowded 'dump the movies we think will suck' kind of opening weekend, the movie Redline comes in 11th at the box office. How bad must this flick be? I know the Myspace page for advertising was just awful when I happened to look at it a couple months ago, as was the trailer they had there. Really didn't make one want to see the movie. The new trailer over at Quicktime is better, and almost makes this seem like it might be a half interesting brainless action car flick. Maybe on DVD. Maybe.

But look at the box office. With a budget at 26 million, it made only 4 million on opening weekend. It'll go down from there. Add that to the fact that Eddie Griffin accidentally totaled the producer's exotic car at a promo junket, and this looks like one costly venture. Unless it was somebody's idea of a tax write-off, then it worked out great...

You can download the Quicktime trailer here, if you really want to see it for some reason...

I wanted to see this just for the cars. The smokin' cars.

Still, I didn't see it and it'll end up on my rental list.
