What do you think about this flick? It does little for me.

One of my Manager's (Casey) is mad for this film. There's a lot of buzz in certain circles.

For what it's worth, internet buzz from the test screenings has not been positive. Of the 4 big movies in May- V.H., Troy, Shrek 2 and DAT- I think this is the weakest. I expect a 65-70 million opening weekend and an eventual gross of 130-140 million.

Van Helsing doesn't have the grand adventure sweep of The Mummy. The trailers make it look like Underworld.

It should do fairly well (maybe 40 - 50 mil) opening weekend as there is nothing against it. But I don't think there is a much of crossover audience so once those who like that sort of flick have seen it, it will drop like a stone. I would agree with Reelman that the top end is 130 - 140 mil.

We are booking it and crossing our fingers that it does well. We need something to start out the summer season ASAP. April films and April weather are killing us. I hope I don't have to wait two more weeks for Shrek 2 for a big bang. The Van Helsing poster got a lot of interest when we put it up months ago. Then we covered it up for a while and when we revealed it again recently it has not been getting the same interest.

All of our employees and managers are excited about, but then again, none of them pay to see it, so I guess it doesnt matter a whole lot if they want to see it. We have had a few customers ask about it, and they point out the banner alot, and say they want to see it. They mostly say, "Isnt that the guy who plays Wolverine?"

Well it does have Hugh Jackman in it, but unfortunately, I think he keeps his clothes on. Too bad.
