Movie Rant: The Rite only made $14,789,393 & Movie Food at AMC

Caught a showing of The Rite over the weekend. Good. Very good in fact. I was darn surprised thus to find that it only took in ~$14,789,393.00 over the weekend box office. Was the movie not advertised well or something? I would think a lot of folk would like to see a movie with Anthony Hopkins that is about demonic possession.

That being said, I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes... well that sort of movie. It's good. Worth full movie price IMO.

On the subject of movie theaters... one of these days more mainstream theaters (I'm looking at you AMC!) will come to realize that they need to improve the quality of their food. Popcorn full of kernels and shells that get stuck in one's teeth, hot-dogs floating on a lake of grease within their hot-dog holders. Yuck.
