Not long after, it was followed by what was presumably the finished version, an event completely ignored by the lamescream media.
Why all the fuss?
Fux: ‘No one will want to see it when it’s already been on the P2P nets.’ [sob, sob]
However, it hasn’t made a blind bit of difference.
In fact, it’s, “howling its way to the top of the box office with an opening day gross of $35 million,” says EW.com.
And, “The gross put the star-crossed superhero flick — leaked print, swine-flu scare, bad reviews and all — in the neighborhood of Iron Man, which began last summer with a $35.2 million bang,” says E! Online.
“Exhibitor Relations was calling for Wolverine to close out the weekend with $85 million, a haul that would make it the fourth- or fifth-biggest summer starter this decade,” it posts.
Do you reckon all the viral online P2P marketing, handed to Fux on a plate, and for free, had anything to do with it?
No need to stay tuned.
