BO-25 (As In “Box Office $25 Million”)! They Sunk My “Battleship”!

Poor Taylor Kitsch. First he saddles up for the year’s first big flop, John Carter, which was actually a pretty good movie that was killed by a studio who didn’t know how to market it and a mass audience that didn’t understand it, and now, he’s center stage of Flop #2, Battleship, the alien invasion [...]

I didn’t think so.

FOX takes an “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” approach to their 2012 fall schedule, with Sundays and Wednesdays untouched from the 2011 season. Tuesday’s being turned into all all sitcom night, where three of their comedies (all single-camera shows this year) will slot in with Raising Hope and The New Girl. Touch gets [...]
