Juno - Playing Everywhere Christmas Day
 
What was the deal with Juno? It was only in select theatres, like the little indie joint down the block from me. Now it's playing everywhere. So, is this another indie success film?

With the big guys passing on all the good stories to bring back old tv shows, cartoons, comic book characters and video games to the screen, should we unknowns focus on producing our own films? It seems like when they start making money is when they start to show interest in good films. :rolleyes:

Juno is from Fox Searchlight - in other words a 'studio' film. :)

What Goon Squad said.

Don't revise history to suit your distorted view of reality.

Juno was not a self financed and self made film.

It was a script that was sold to a major studio, produced by a major studio, promoted by a major studio and distributed by a major studio.

Obviously studios buy all kinds of stories.

Instead of making excuses for why your script didn't sell, try making reasons for someone to buy it.

ouch. i see why they call him dramaking, lol.

@LisaJohnTre

good stories is a very subjective topic as are good movies/scripts

i can't comment on Juno since i didn't see it for myself. the concept didn't really grab me but it wouldn't be fair to say its not a good movie without seeing it.

there have been a good amount of movies i thought would suck and then ended up being one of my favorites.

Drama King certainly fits you perfectly as a screen name.

First off, I only have ONE script and I haven't even marketed it yet. Secondly, I only thought Juno was independent since it was in selected markets, and a theatre that NEVER has major productions shown there. So I stand corrected on that. Sorry.

The biggest hangup I have had about becoming a writer is that some of them have such nasty attitudes like Drama King. I'm actually a very nice person. Maybe I should be an executive producer instead. :rolling:

It's only in about 300 theatres. It averaged around 3750 per theatre, low mediocre performance, but it's building so much hype with the critics and media, it could really pick up steam.

You can track films individually or compare them on charts here:

JUNO doesn't look too expensive so it should do OK.

Just saw the trailer minutes ago for the 1st time. I don't know... the actors' deliveries sounded off to me & it didn't come off as too funny. Kinda flat actually. I think they could have done a better job with the trailer, but I haven't seen the movie, just read the script...

Where did you see 3750? According to the link Stvnla provided its average is over 11, 000.
