I'm looking at this weekend's box office report and I can't help but notice that you people have horrible, horrible taste in movies.
You went to go see Ice Age 2? Instead of Slither? Why?
Part of the problem has to be the marketing campaign Slither had. Having not seen the movie (my self-righteous indignation knows no bounds) for financial reasons, I can only go by what I have read in reviews. And the reviews say that the trailers are nothing like the actual movie, which is supposedly kicka$$.
Meanwhile, Queen Latifah was on The Daily Show promoting Ice Age 2 and getting all kinds of Generation Y support. I consider this a failure on the part of the top brass not putting together a campaign that targeted the core demographics for insanely gross horror movies. If they had, they might have made more than a measley $3.6 million opening weekend.
