2D Is Dead... Dead I Tell You!
This is really an addendum to a sentence I wrote in the Sunday Box Office results for this weekend.
Anyone wonder what Michael Eisner was thinking last Sunday when he opened his copy of the Hollywood Reporter to see the grosses of the "Simpson's Movie"?
Did he faint? Was he in denial? Or did he have a realization that hand-drawn animation isn't dead, despite his attempt to frame it for bad storytelling?
It turns out if you have a good story with likable characters people will pay money to see them. I guess when you let writers come up with plot-lines and not let Suits decide where the story goes you can come up with compelling tales that audiences will lay down their hard earned cash for.
Who'd a thunk it?
Mr. Eisner? Mr. Eisner? Mr. Eisner would you please wake up and get off the floor...
