    you faggits sure love your superhero movies


    LOS ANGELES - Iron Man is a bigger golden boy than ever with a $175.3 million opening weekend at the domestic box office for the superhero's latest sequel.

    According to studio estimates Sunday, "Iron Man 3" had the second-biggest debut ever, behind the $207.4 million start last year for "The Avengers," which teamed him with other Marvel Comics heroes.


    Opening a week earlier overseas, "Iron Man 3" has hauled in $504.8 million internationally, giving the blockbuster a worldwide total of $680.1 million.

    I cant remember which movie it was but I remember reading adam sandler got a 20 million dollar paycheck and then on top of it negotiated and got percentage points on the film too and it said he ended up with like 70 million for one fucking movie, that makes me way more nauseated than RDJ but 50 mill is still sickening.

    Why? I agree its a huge sum, but if the actor is the draw to the film why shouldn't they profit from their product?

    Is anyone complaining that the guy that invented GoPro camera's is a billionaire at age 38 or whatever he is?

    At least these guys put out an actual product that people buy and don't make their living skimming the cheese off society with fake financial scams and usury.

    Here's my theory.... when you're young, your quality threshold is very low - you eat shit food (chicken fingers, grilled cheese), you listen to shit music, and... you enjoy watching shit movies. When you get older... hopefully, you adjust to bigger and better things that, as a younger person, you would have no interest in... scotch, bone-in ribeye, eating pussy, scorsese, etc..

    Adam Sandler hit a few home runs (from a younger person's perspective) with Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer to the point where he had an entire demographic locked in and trained to see whatever movie he puts out... thus the huge success from the above list.

    The problem was this demographic finally got old enough to realize how shitty his movies are. When they were 13, it was great, but now they know better.

    So he lost his huge block of loyal fans because they got older and he hasn't been able to catch on with the next batch of young suckers.

    Do you really have to ask why its sickening that the guy made 70 million for one movie? Well for one it shows he indeed is the perfect example of the greedy jewish guy stereotype, Tom cruise is still one of the most bankable stars in hollywood and commands huge sums as well but hes not a greedy asshole about it and will still put everything he has into a movie even if he's not making 100 million dollars. I was just reading reviews for that jack reacher movie to see if it was any good and the budget for that entire movie was 60,000,000, it shows you actually give a shit about your product that you put out and not just how much money you can bilk your fans for. The other reason to hate on him for it is the reason he is able to even get that type of money is because hes the fucking producer on every single movie through his own shitty happy madison label and is writing himself the checks pretty much, hes able to do that because instead of investing more money into the movie to make it good and maybe hire someone outside of his failed SNL buddies who maybe costs a bit more but will pay off in terms of comedy he sacrifices the movie, throws in as much product placement ads to the point its glaringly obvious and phones in the entire movie. He happily rips off his fans and gets paid huge sums to do it.

    Saw it a weak ago, easily the weakest of the 3, definitely feeling the loss of Favreau's directing
