Here's an article about this weekends box office numbers. This quote scares me... (from Summit)
"It certainly says what we've been saying all along, that we can do more with less."

They better not cheap out on New Moon!!!

Haha your comment made me laugh xD. I really hope they don't follow the "we can do more with less" filosophy with NM, as the populairty the film is getting is more due to the huge fun base and interesting plot then the quality of the movie itself... Well I hope they don't just count on that to make money but that they're going to give the audience something really worth of all this popularity

THEY BETTER not do that with new moon.
actaully i think he just meant that with Twilight, even though it had such a small budget. it did AMAZING. as in brought in big numbers.

so with new moon. i think they really need to take it a step further and cash in at least $90 million for the budget.

You guys think that the movie Australia will knock Twilight off the #1 standings? I hope it holds to #1 for a while but I doubt it since Hugh Jackman was voted "Hottest Man" in People mag.

I have thought about that. And well, I think that the twihards can beat hugh-hards any day. I mean, people are going to see it again and again and again. So I'm not too worried.

Hope you're right. Though there are quite a few Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman fans out there. Personnally, I hate Nicole Kidman.

I haven't seen the ew.com article, but in that first article I didn't feel like they were saying they were going to have the same budget for Twilight. They were just saying that they had proved that a relatively low budget movie can still be successful and compete with the big budget ones. Because the $37 million that Twilight had as a budget, while a big number to most people, is really quite small in Hollywood.
