Zac's gotta go his own way... in a van.  
Zac out for a drive in a Toyota minivan, which I presume his mom's? IDK. But it's cute to see him slumming it again.

yeah imdb star meter and the movie meter are crazy.

and as they've shown before are not really a reliable test of what well sell. i mean, speed racer was almost at the top of the chart when it came out and it bombed.

internet searches in general aren't a perfect indicator. i mean look at the jobros movie. everyone thought it would do superwell from internet trends and presales but it tanked.

footloose seems to have some interest going into it... not as much as a comic book adaptation.

The imdb meters have to be looked at in their own context. Eg. if the Mall Cop doesn't have a good rating, that doesn't say anything but if Batman won't dominate the meter for weeks in advance then something is wrong.

Actually, I expected Speed Racer to not do well based on the IMDb ranking. While it came up high briefly before release, it was too low for way too long and also the cast rankings were too low. A movie like Speed Racer should have been way higher at an earlier stage, so the box office result was not much of a surprise to me (the extend yes but not that it wasn't a hit).

Anyway, initially a lot is driven by curiosity from casual surfers (like Zac had mid 2007) but after a while that goes away. I don't think Footloose will drive a lot of traffic and interest unless they pull off some spectacular stunt casting.

Some casting news is what he needs imo - and ideally a studio project. It would make me a lot "calmer" too.
