You Failed To Attend Glee: The 3D Concert Movie. Are You Ashamed Of Yourself Yet?

Yow—America did not embrace Glee: The 3-D Concert Movie.

Here are the numbers:

Friday: Opens in sixth place with $2.7 million.
Saturday: Drops 37%, takes in $1.7 million more.
Weekend total estimate: $5.7 million.

It didn’t even crack the top 10. More people went to see The Change-Up. People hate The Change-Up. A baby shits in Jason Bateman’s mouth in The Change-Up.

Obviously, the hardest of hardcore Gleeks went and gave it an “A” Cinemascore. And the film didn’t cost much to make, so it’ll recoup its money pretty quickly, probably even before DVD sales kick in.

But this isn’t good news.

Maybe Sue Sylvester’s multi-tentacled reverse-psychology marketing strategy (see above video), worked too well. Jane Lynch is such a convincing actress she convinced everyone to stay home:

“It’s time to make a stand against these pimply-faced, hormone-ridden twits by joining the ‘Stop Believing’ campaign. Say ‘no’ to their insignificant cinematic experiment. I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand looking at their little satanic faces in 2D, much less 3D.”

      Not surprised. I love GLEE but I think most people think, why go to the movies and pay $12 for a ticket when you can watch it on TV? I’ll buy the DVD.

      I didn’t know it was only going to be around for one weekend. I wanted to see it.

      @mudgeboy: It’s not just the weekend; it’s still showing.

      I thought this was a made-for-tv movie. I’ll wait for it to arrive on Netflix, just like all other movies. I haven’t been to a movie theatre since prices rose above $7 a ticket because that’s too damn expensive.

      Seeing concerts on the big screen has never been hugely lucrative (Except for silly Bieber’s silly film, but that was more doco than anything)

      Kylie’s tour in cinemas, while spectacular in 3D, didn’t do much buck, and I don’t even recall any others except for Michael Jackson’s.

      We went Friday. It was cute. Way too much Rachel as always and not enough Chord. It was well worth it for seeing the Mini Warbler. ZOMG he is so CUTE!!!


      In typical Glee style, the boys are all wearing clothes that mask their figures. No good ass shots or packages. Only Darrin Criss makes a “stand out” performance. Delish!

      Looking forward to the new season. I just wish Chord was still going to be around.

      Blah. Ryan is ruining what was once a very promising show.

      Not gonna lie, I would pay $16 to see Cory Monteith in 3D.

      Schadenfreude is a word I would use to describe,
      All the feelings for this failure hiding deep down inside…
