Echoing the decline in book sales in 2010, U.S. movie box office revenue so far in 2011 is down 21% compared to last year and attendance is off by 22%. The Los Angeles Times reports this freefall without mentioning that the economy is still awful for millions of Americans and the movies Hollywood is inflicting on them are even worse. (Or the movies are wonderful and play in one theater for two weeks.) The suits are hoping Rango and Battle L.A. will turn the slump around. Literary types can anticipate another Jane Eyre opening a week from Friday, starring Mia W from The Kids Are All Right and Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester, with the bonus of Jamie Bell and Judi Dench in supporting roles. The movie I'm most looking forward to is Francois Ozon's Potiche.
