Steve Jobs, segundo trailer disponible. ¿Aún no tienes ganas de verla?
At first there were rumours of a good turnout at the cinemas, but it seems that there is not. Steve Jobs’ biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin and released this past week in the United States, doesn’t seem to have attracted as many people as expected .
The production of the film has cost 30 million dollars, but in the first weekend of its release it has only been able to collect 7.3 million dollars . For comparison, the film “Jobs” by Ashton Kucther (which received rather bad reviews), received 6.7 million dollars at the box office. Bad deal when the predictions were 19 million dollars.
The worst thing is that there will most likely be good quality versions of the film before it is released in Spain
Obviously it remains to be seen how much money will be collected for the film from now on, surely more Americans will come to the cinema to see it. But usually the bulk of a film’s profits come during its first weekend, and this has proved to be a disappointment despite more or less positive reviews.
I also see another piece of bad news: the film has already been released in the US but it will take a long time to reach other countries like Spain (we won’t see it in theatres until January 1st). And when that happens, a good quality version of the film is already running on P2P networks before the local release . And that makes the international benefits of the release much smaller than predicted.
Anyway, like it or not, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a blockbuster.
