Performance of Transcendence at Box Office
Well folks its really a bad time of the year for this movie to come out. Captain America is on a rampage, Rio 2 is getting the kids to pull their parents..
Secondly, This is Wally Pfister's first time directing and he was given $100 million to play with. I'm a believer that when you begin your directing career, you should have a smaller budget so that you are forced to be creative with what you have, if that makes sense. Basically, I think Pfister may have bit off more than he could chew. I bring this up because while I currently can't comment on the movie's quality, critics sure can and reviews play a part on box office results (most of the time).
Lastly, the trailers for the film we're very cluttered and didn't give you a clear picture of what was happening. I understand its a thriller movie and you don't want to give everything away, but the trailers seemed like a mess.
