John Marston

Cast Away (2000)

Recommended Posts

Tom Hanks definately deserves the credit for this but I think there was another thing that helped the movie reached those crazy numbers. Cast Away premiered right in the middle of the Survivor craze. Survivor season 1 finale aired at the end of August 2000 with 50m viewers and Survivor season 2 premiered after the superbowl 2001 to 45m viewers. Getting stranded on an island was all the rage in 2000-2001.

I was just thinking about this film and What Women Want the other day. With how drastically studio release strategies have shifted since then, it's hard to believe that two star-driven films aimed at adults completely dominated late December. This one even went higher than the most hyped action film of the preceding summer.

And both starred Helen Hunt.
