Did you know that Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts have a new movie out in theaters right now. Don’t worry no one else seemed to know about The Sea of Trees is out either. The film that is directed by Gus Van Sant made just $1,877 over the weekend in two theaters. Things got worse from there because on Monday it made $411, Tuesday, $442 and Wednesday it brought in just $164 according to Box Office Mojo. That means that less that 15 people saw it two days ago. Ouch! Ouch! And ouch!
Maybe it is because you can rent it for $6.99 on YouTube, but that would be a nice way to spin it. Let’s be honest, it looks awful and that is why no one is going to see it.
If Matt wants to get people to see his artsy films in theaters, then he needs to make sure he is shirtless throughout it. That would get me to spend $15 on a piece of crap.
