Halo 3: "It was definitely me."
Posted: Thursday October 18th, 2007 by

Film industry executives are blaming Halo 3 for the poor ticket sales in theatres across the country. The weekend of October 5th US cinemas saw the worst October weekend since 1999 generating $80 million dollars in ticket sales. By comparison Halo 3 brought in $170 million dollars on it's first day alone. Source: Gamespot [ more info ]

I'd just like to say that I do not actually believe that every movie released in the month of October is, or will be, trash (I'm looking forward to "Dan in Real Life"). But, I also don't believe that Halo 3 alone was responsible for poor tickets sales. Let's be honest, how many of us in that 18-34 "target demographic" would probably rather play any Halo game than to sit through another Ben Stiller movie ("Heartbreak Kid")?

Okay okay that was a bit unfair. There are quite a few Ben Stiller movies I've really enjoyed. But nothing in the last few years that's actually convinced me to pay theatre prices. Then again, there's aren't many movies these days that have convinced me to pay cinema prices.

Screw you cine-plex and your $85 popcorn. **defiantly shakes fist**

PS. this whole thing was just an excuse to draw Master Chief
