Recommended Posts

Trailer is super generic, but Harrelson and Larson look good so I'll check it out

Eh, I can't stand the commercials. Just comes across as hokey and trying way too hard to get award recognition.

This feels like it's being dumped tbh. Wouldn't be surprised by a sub-$25M total.

With a drama like this, I'd be shocked at a $25M+ total.

The book was an extremely leggy bestseller, so there was definitely potential for the film to be a hit if marketed correctly. Sadly, it hasn't been marketed correctly.

Yeah, I was in Books a Million the other day killing some time and they had this in the bestseller shelf with some other recent adaptations. I think the audience is there for this, but I can't tell if it'll be something where online buzz is reflective of awareness.

This sucks :( I want the Glass Castle to do well. But there's only 1 trailer with not many views. Only way is maybe if they do a limited release and slowly expand. But I think Open Road is going wide. Snowden all over again

Lionsgate is releasing this, not Open Road.

@CJohn Lionsgate did (well, didn't) the thing

What thing? Not selling it? As expected.

That's...... ok? This could have opened close to The Shack if Lionsgate gave a fuck.

The Shack also had the hard core Christian fan base going for it

It is just because only 3 of the 8 reviewer turned a rating (4.5/5, 4/5, 9/10).

Better reviews than expected tbh. Expected a full on trashing at this point or complete mediocrity, not mixed with some big fans.

That's looking like a rare case where the RT could recover (or go further).
