Oh dear what can the matter be?

Wally Pfister’s Transendence has flopped dismally!* (Sung to the tune of the classic playground hit about Three Old Ladies)


Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer of choice, the outspoken Wally Pfister, is surely nursing a bruised ego after his directorial debut Transcendence did anything but transcend to the top of the US box office.

 

Reputedly budgeted at an estimated $100 million, Transcendence earned Warner Bros. a measly $11.2 million. Even the presence of Johnny Depp, whom jolted the languishing project into life when he signed on to star, couldn’t save the film.

 

“Audiences are very sophisticated,” noted Warner distribution exec Jeff Goldstein, “and for the general public this just didn’t look like anything they wanted to see.”

 

Will Wally inexplicably blame the film’s failure on The Avengers? By the way Wally, speaking as a complete novice when it comes to cinematography here, but there was nothing wrong with how The Avengers was shot and it was a hell of a lot more entertaining than The Dark Knight SLOWLY, oh so slowly Rises.
