More thoughts on the great movie box office slump of 2011 today. First, here's a link to my Cairns on Cinema column this week where I give my reasons why people aren't showing up.
I said the slump was due to 3D and increased ticket prices, and this was why people were no longer supporting the "same old junk" that they used to spend money on in the past. Although truth be told, they're not even really supporting the good movies, either.
About the only good news is Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is doing great business on the IMAX screens. But when was the last time we saw a decent action movie on screens? A long time ago, I say. No wonder it's doing so well.
