When 'RoboCop' got pushed from an August 2013 release date to February 2014, everyone assumed it would open stronger when far away from the busy summer months. If this is the better of the two options, then we can't even imagine how poorly it would have opened in the warmer months. The remake of the 1987 classic is definitely not a disaster, but it most certainly underperformed.
'Winter's Tale' makes 'Safe Haven' look like 'The Godfather.' It is an absurd story adapted in the most dreary way possible, with lifeless performances, dull dialogue and laughable special effects. I need to cross-reference my files, but I think it is the worst major studio release with respected actors in five years. If any of us cared about our culture at all we'd be gathering our pitchforks and storming Hollywood now.
The first trailer for Akiva Goldsman's directorial debut 'Winter's Tale' will probably make the most sense to those who've read the Mark Helprin book. We're a little unsure of what to make of it, though it stars Colin Farrell as a charming thief and Russell Crowe as a bad guy (and possible sorcerer), so it could be worth watching.
