Rise of a Franchise

Yeesh.  Well, it's been eight years, and the sequel to 300 made it to theaters before the sequel to Sin City.  Go figure.  I don't know where Hollywood did their advertising for this besides TV.  Must've been in Maxim magazine and Soldier of Fortune, junk like that.  Maybe the Nickelodeon channel?  It must be a step up if Zack Snyder's not directing it.  Of course, Zack's getting better, especially if he's doing the new Superman movie.
And speaking of long-delayed franchises, the Jay Ward catalog returns to theaters with Mr. Peabody & Sherman.  I'm shocked!  Colbert didn't talk about it last night!  I guess if it was #1, he would've.  The last debut this week is the re-debut of 12 Years a Slave at #9.  But it's already out on DVD!  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Frozen is almost over the $400 million mark.  How does it do it?  And Son of God is slightly less popular than The Lego Movie.  Go figure.  They should do the Lego version of Son of God for the Blu-Ray.  Just sayin'.
