Nope. We've had terrible shooting incidents for as long as film has existed (and long before that). If people aren't going, it's because they are simply not interested in the film (or how it was marketed). On-screen violence has nothing to do with it.
Those are his next three movies? Sweet! Those will tank hard as well and we as a society can stop pretending that Arnold has had any value as an action star since 1991.
Oh, and he won't be "fine" for a while, Nikki Finke is reporting that this "comeback" is already being seen as a joke. And with that unimpressive upcoming slate, Arnold will be dunzo by 2014. Kiss your Terminator and Conan sequels goodbye right now folks.
Calm down, buddy! Conan could very well get canned (I doubt it, probably just get a lower budget), but Terminator 5 will happen regardless. The question is whether or not they will go out of their way to get Arnold for it.
As for Finke, the comeback might be seen as a joke, but so is she.
Exactly. The former is quite likely (and if not that, then Battle Angel) and QT has already expressed a desire to work with him before.
Unless the brakes are immediately pumped on Conan (which is possible), it's gonna happen. It's due to shoot this fall. Terminator 5 will happen regardless, Arnold or not. There's no way Megan Ellison is going to pop for those rights and not do anything with them.
I think people have convinced themselves it will tank simply because they want it to bomb so badly. It could disappoint, at least in the eyes of the studio, but I severely doubt it will be a huge bomb.
This. In Verbinski I trust.
Now this I can agree with everyone on. Pirates 5 will undoubtedly make less domestically than Pirates 4. Problem is it will still probably make enough worldwide to easily guarantee a sixth film.
John Dies At The End is already on VOD, so have at it! Elysium comes out in March, I believe, and Gravity hits screens this fall.
And now to rain on your parade. Inherent Vice merely SHOOTS this year (if all goes well). It will be a 2014 release.
