Tron vs Hornet

     Tron vs Hornet showdown

Will Sony move THE GREEN HORNET yet again? If not, Seth Rogen and director Michel Gondry must have a few amazing tricks up their sleeves because they'll be facing off against a mighty powerful foe on their recently changed slot.

A release date for Disney's upcoming TRON LEGACY had been circulating for a while, but now this week the Mouse House made it official: December 17th 2010, against HORNET as well as THE SMURFS and YOGI BEAR.

One or more of those will surely tuck tail and move out of the way,  with TRON appealing to a much wider audience then the previous three while benefiting an anticipation that's already pumped up to capacity over a year in advance. If Sony doesn't budge, I predict a crippling defeat for HORNET even if the film turns out better than currently expected. Who's taking bets?

Extra Tidbit: I'm still surprised there's a YOGI BEAR film in the works. When did that happen?

One hell of a opening weekend battle. Curous to see Yogi Bear. As I recall Unicef murdered the Smurfs in an ad, google it. Only Baby Smurf survived the carnage.

Crippling

doesnt begin to describe what will happen to any of these movies that go up against TRON. Guess these studios are tryn as hard as they can to make sure they don't at least get they're budget back.

BTW - everyone is high if they don't think TRON won't dominate... look how many views the trailer already has on youtube alone.

Yeah! Watchmen trailer had more views, still it failed at the box-office. It barely made it to the 100M mark.

Wow, do people really have that little faith in Michel Gondry to make a good movie? I mean granted, his films aren't for everybody, but they're at least original and lack of originality tends to be one of the most common complaints around here.

Aside from some fans of the original Tron, I don't see a lot of people being that interested in the new movie. It's for more of a niche market, like how Watchmen was at the theater. Kids movies always bank despite sucking, so its probably not a good idea to go up against 2 of them. As for green hornet, I'll wait until I see a trailer before saying anything, but I remain hopeful.

Crippling Isn't Good Enough!

Put it on life support. This thing is DOA.

Tron cost $17 million to make and only made $33 million domestically. Just because of its cult following Disney assumes that it'll sell well with everyone. I've got Smurfs or Yogi Bear taking the box-office, leaning more towards The Smurfs simply because of the success of the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie.

and oh yeah The Green Hornet is gonna flop.

I must be wrong but ... Ever since I heard about the Tron sequel I have been wondering why they were spending so much money on it cause it never occured to me it could actually be big at the box-office.

Since the release date is December 17th, I think its got room for more than one big movie, most Christmas releases make money, even when there are ten of them. Fun With Dick And Jane has a small opening but ended up with over 100M, cause it was released around X-mas...

I hope..

the smurfs movie kicks the green hornet's ass at the box office that week. I hope "Green Hornet" fails at the box office because their is not one good thing about that movie.

I can live with you not liking Seth Roegen, Im not a fan either, but dont hate him. Nic Cage, everyone has the sme opinion of him nowadays ... But saying there is nothing good about this film when Michel Gondry is involved ? That is quite insulting man ...

Really, so neither Michel Gondy, Tom Wilkonson count as one good thing. Maybe I'm wrong, but it sounds like your main problem lies with Rogen playing a superhero. In that regard I agree with you, it's stupid, stupid casting. However, I'll admit that the film has a lot going for it in spite of that. Gondy is a very talented film making and has assembled a pretty exceptionally strong supporting cast for this.
