The Artist has scored almost universal praise from critics and is the likely front-runner for winning Best Picture of the year during the Oscars Sunday night.
It has grossed 28 million dollars in 3 months.
The Devil Inside has scored almost universal pans from critics and is the likely front-runner for one of the year’s worst movies.
It grossed 33.7 million dollars in just 3 days… and has reached 53 million dollars since January.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that box office and popularity matters more than quality and creative risk…especially when it’s something like The Artist, which I greatly enjoyed.
But which movie has had a more profound impact on American cinema? Which movie will likely continue to gross more money on video and other markets? Which movie generated much more conversation and engagement? Which one will people still be talking about in a few years?
