I haven't tried to figure out the biggest financial disaster of the year in the movie biz, but here are some contenders:
  • Oliver Twist (2005) was made with a production budget of $60 million. Last week it grossed less in 779 theaters than Capote grossed in 11! It will finish with a domestic box office total below three million dollars.
  • A Sound of Thunder has similar numbers with an even larger budget - $80 million budget, two million gross.
  • Those numbers look relatively worse than the comparable figures for Stealth, but I think Stealth has to have lost more money. It grossed $32 million (and another $30 million overseas), but had a production budget of $138 million.
  • Some sources reported that Son of the Mask had a production cost of $100 million. If so, it is a serious contender, with only $17 million in domestic gross.
  • I was surprised to discover that Kingdom of Heaven is not on the list. It took a shellacking at the box office in the USA, but was a mammoth hit overseas. ($47 million domestic box, but $163 million foreign!!)

Daily Box Office - Monday, October 10 and Tuesday, October 11, 2005. It's interesting to see the difference between a holiday and a normal day.
  • There was no school Monday, so Wallace & Gromit completely dominated the action, pulling in more than the next two films added together. Corpse Bride finished a respectable fifth.
  • School resumed on Tuesday. Wallace and Gromit dropped to third, and Corpse Bride almost dropped off the map, falling to ninth, with only $106 per screen.
  • In terms of revenues per screen, the top film on Tuesday was Waiting ... , the critically reviled lowbrow comedy. In terms of total gross, the top film was Curtis Hanson's chixploitation film, In Her Shoes. In second place was the Pacino sports gambling film!
  • Absent the kiddie market, there's just no champion in the fragmented field.

2005 NFL Cheerleader Tour - Day 22 : Tennessee Titans

Every once in a while a team comes from out of the blue to surprise you. The Titans always had some impressive members, but were hampered by one big problem. Guys. This is definitely a prime example of addition by subtraction.

The website for the new-look Titan Cheerleaders has a lot of nice extras that make it something for other squads to look at. The prime example is the extra photos and video in the bio section. With one look at the easy navigation for the additional photos of
Brooke
, you can see why this would be a positive addition for other web sites. Some other places that must be visited on this site include the slideshows for Chastity, Lindsey, and Leigh. I would still like to see some more content to this site. There are no photos from games or from community appearances. There is also no mention of any kind of calendar.

They have come a long way. Look for this team to keep climbing the charts for the next few years.

Rating 8.0 out of 10.

Weekly World News: "HOW TO SCORE HOW TO SCORE WITH REAL-LIFE DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES! ... They're not called 'desperate' for nothing.
  • I wonder if any member of the Weekly World News staff has ever been with a woman. If it ever happens, they should do a headline story on that.
