Forum posts for Have you ever heard of the movie ZyZZYX Road?

Posted by Miguel on Jan 08, 2007
It only played in one screen I think. Many....many movies would only make that much money if they only played in one screen.

I don't know about that.

But yeah, it only played on one screen in Dallas for a week.

Further to my point

Most hollywood movies would make more than 30 bucks I think.

I mean, assume that only 6 people saw this movie. If you were in a movie, do you not think that you'd be able to convince at least 6 family members/friends to go to the movie?

I agree that most Hollywood movies would.....but this wasnt really a hollywood movie....it was a direct to video type production that probably should not have hit theaters.

If small independent movies like Junebug or Kings and Queen or even shit like a billy blanks movie or a Tom Sizemore vehicle (which is what zzyyxx road is) shows up at one screen with little to no marketing around it, I would expect around 3 or 4 people to show up.

Many movies would only make 30 to 40 dollars if they opened in one screen with no marketing or publicity.

I guess we'll agree to disagree.

Seriously, just the friends and relatives of the people in the movie would blow it away.

I mean, it has one of the stars of Grey's Anatomy!

Hey Bud,

If it was Queen video, I hate it with a passion. I go to Suspect ....Queen is for fucking wankers, no disrespect to the fucking wankers here who frequent them.

This interview with the producer/star of the movie brings a lot of context to the whole thing.
