The numbers agree: you know what really chaps our ass? The lack of business for Chappie this weekend.
Sure, Chappie “won” the box office. But with a paltry $13.3 million take, that’s hardly a victory. Why won’t America support good, original wi-fi?
Seriously, this film only made $5 million more than The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. That makes sense … NOT. One stars Dev Patel, and the other stars A FUCKING ROBOT.
With all due respect to Dev*, that should be no contest. It’s like pitting Wall-E against Slumdog Millionaire, or I, Robot against whatever other movies Dev Patel has been in.
Let’s all correct this next weekend and give Chappie the $50 million it deserves, OK? Because if this doesn’t get your ass chapped and motivated, I don’t know what will. It’s time to stand up and fight for the common man, America.
*The Newsroom is the best TV show of all-time.
