This Backdraft cover just needs a tagline of “This is fine”.

Can't find a larger one yet but it's probably for the best.

Well, Tom Hanks’s star isn’t as bright as it once was, but that feather is HOT right now.

I just don't want to see the bird that the enormous feather came from! It must be as big as Q: The Winged Serpent!

Somehow worse than the film and that's saying something

But that's not a Blu-ray or DVD cover, is it?

Box-office poison Mortez is in the movie for TWO MINUTES at the very beginning, and yet they plonk her front and center in the art.

Background and center, not front, and really, "box-office poison"?

Kick-Ass 2, Carrie, The 5th Wave...even Cameron Post made ok money considering its budget. And Greta seems to be doing pretty well, although I can’t find budget numbers to check against its receipts.

A quick visit to Box Office Mojo would show that the domestic box-office performance of none of the first three films, in relation to their budgets, can conceivably be called "ok".

I don't know how much Cameron Post cost, but I'm sure it was significantly more than the paltry 900k it grossed. And irrespective of the budget, Greta is dropping like a rock pretty fast.

Blunt as it is, Monterey Jack's assessment is accurate.

If you don't know much about it, then how could you be sure? It was not made for significantly more than $900,000 but for around that amount. The worldwide gross was more than that, and I don't think anyone realistically expected that film to do anything more than break even, if that, so it was hardly any kind of big disappointment.

Moretz's conscious choice to essentially withdraw from bigger, more commercial projects and roles is a matter of a former child actor figuring out who she is and what she wants to do, so it seemed to me a little bit mean-spirited to stick "box-office poison" in front of her name because of the lack of profit-making potential of the recent films she's been a part of.
