Time magazine — in a snidely headlined piece on the controversy — says “Somebody stole it’s daemon.” I guess so because Boxofficemojo reports a disappointing $26 million opening for the Golden Compass. That’s extremely low for a film which cost $180 million to produce. And that figure may or may not include the millions in advertising being spent to promote the film.
The film is going to have an even harder time next weekend when Will Smith’s I Am Legend opens. It’s already garnering much better reviews. Either Scott or I will probably add our own after we see it Friday.
