I''ll concede that point.

You just never can predict which horror or horror/thriller movie is going to unexpectedly break out. And I'm not talking It, that film's success (though not quite the level of success) was fairly easy to predict. I never expected The Shallows to do so well, nor any of the recent horror franchises' very first films (Insidious, The Conjuring, The Purge, etc.). You don't expect a new film to be a major hit in this genre until it becomes one.

That being said, for every horror film that breaks out, nine others don't. Not sure which category AQP is going to fall in. We'll see.

How in the world do you come to this conclusion? Bay's name isn't anywhere in any of the marketing material.

It's being sold on A. it's premise, and B. it's stars.

1. I had no clue it was Michael Bay produced. I doubt anyone else cares who fronts the money for a movie and greenlights it, unless it's ISIS or Weinstein.
2. For the most part people don't care who directs a movie. At this point I can't even tell you who's directing 90% of the stuff I'll see this year including stuff like The Avengers.
3. It doesn't matter the indie film he directed a year ago. Plenty of directors make an indie film or two and then go into more mainstream stuff.
4. It sounds like the fifty English girls they randomly asked before Blunt missed out. She couldn't make American films because they pay a Hell of a lot more than British ones.

If it does well it'll be because it executed on a pretty solid premise. The mostly silent (mute, I guess) film could have put some people off.

Netflix has picked up Extinction from Universal. Any more fringe and/or unreleasable titles you want to sell, industry?

It would certainly make Thorne's creepy male fans happy.

The Orchard's distributing, MoviePass is basically handling prints and advertising. Kind of similar to when Amazon rents a distributor or the MGM/Annapurna deal. So most likely, they will show the film (maybe not in New York or Los Angeles, but there are plenty of other chains there that could book the film).

Meanwhile, Pure Flix has scheduled a new version of Little Women for 9/28/2018. Why?
