i'm not at all saying he should completely avoid things he likes. idc if he goes to strip clubs. but i would've expected he'd be more conscientious of the way these decisions are perceived and interpreted the week before his family-friendly movie comes out.

universal has been actively courting the religious organizations as well as mom blogs for audience for charlie st. cloud. this story has been syndicated everywhere. i can't say how much it could affect the box office but there are people who will read it and be severely disappointed in this choice and may choose not to go. to be perfectly honest, the box office for cstc is shaping up to be mediocre according to most movie bloggers. so to lose anyone matters.

i just don't get why he has hustled his ass off criss-crossing the country selling this movie and then he makes a decision like this. he knows that he is watched more closely than the rest of us... that's why he's so careful with private pictures ending up on fb/twitter/etc. he has to know that the scrutiny is especially strong the week before his family-friendly is released. idk why, unless this is some stunt, that he'd be so dumb as to make such a poor decision. does he think he's above the repercussions? idgi. like i get why people think it could be a stunt since his masculinity is always in question but idg why now, a week before, why not a week after? is he trying to piss off universal? like why do something that would piss off the exact groups they are selling this movie to?

pretty much. which is why it looks a lot like a plant.

and like i just said elsewhere to you guys, corbin was answering fan questions at that time. are you telling me he was throwing up ones with one hand and tweeting his ass off with another, cause that's talent.

Legit my face rn, but browner.

but i still don't get why it would be a plant right now, unless, like i said he wants to piss off universal which doesn't really seem like him either. and i think ultimately it hurts him more than it hurts universal on every level... and further it hurts him more than it helps him. it kind of makes him looks stupid. and he isn't really stupid at all so i am utterly perplexed by this.

like you said, zac isn't stupid. he doesn't do things like this without purpose - especially not in a huge city and a well-known club. so let's be honest: if he went, he wanted ppl to know.

i don't think he is the kind of person who would spite universal either. i don't think he would spite anyone, frankly. like i don't see him being RAGE MAD if it doesn't do well, just... sigh, we tried our best. disappointed, more like it. i don't see vindictiveness in his mannerisms though, at all. but doing so would be reading too much so...

idk i really do think it's a last minute sell of his manliness. he's an adult now, go watch his adult movie. cause that plot ain't selling.

omg i didn't know that! i actually didn't know this was made out to be a "family film" i thought it was supposed to be more of a romantic drama.

it has to be some stunt because zac is too professional to try and piss universal off, at least publicly.
Shruticalcified on July 29th, 2010 05:28 am (UTC)
yup, they're doing advertisements at churches.

i wonder if they've seen the moderate estimates for the movie and were last minute attempting a different strategy - grown-up, masculine zef - vs what it is - maudlin romantic plot.

the thought of them using a strip club to make zac seem more masculine has me so skeeved out i don't even want to go there.

i just don't think it helps anyone rn though. not that universal has been like smart about most of this promo so i guess i shouldn't be surprised they'd try something this dumb at the last second... if that is what happened.

i can't figure out how the stunt angle helps anybody though. i mean, rn. like i get the masculinity thing but it doesn't make sense when put in relation to cstc being released this week and how it has been marketed.

ok this is kinda related but I was REALLY surprised at the blatant religious theme in the movie. It wasn't even just ~spiritual~ it was flat out Christian.

Really, how so?

How was I surprised or how was it Christian/religious?
