Does anybody know why, after being in release for over 7 weeks, the movie Breakfast of Champions is still only being shown at 7 theaters nationwide? It has to have had a big budget, with stars like Bruce Willis, Albert Finney, Nick Nolte, Barbara Hershey and Glenne Headly; yet in its limited release, has only taken in $136,000 dollars.
This movie was based on one of my all time favorite books (by Kurt Vonnegut, for the uninitiated). While I am sadly resigned to the fact that it is probably no better than the other Vonnegut books that have been translated to film (I actually liked Slaughterhouse Five), I would still like to see it, but it isn’t playing anywhere near me.
Anybody got any idea what Buena Vista is thinking?
