Standing In Line for The Twilight Saga: New Moon

twilight_saga_New_Moon_poster.jpgGood morning.  Last night at about midnight, after a few minutes of pathetic begging by my 12-year old daughter Connie (who is also a newly-minted Manka Bros. Board member), I had my driver, Leif Garrett (yes, former child star) drop her off at the line of freaks waiting to get tickets to The Twilight Saga: New Moon.  She told me she was going to meet her (punk ass) friends Jenny and Skylark and wouldn't be back until she has seen the movie - and then added... "it might take days".

This got me thinking:  When was the last time Manka Bros. had a film that people wanted to see so bad that they lined up days in advance to see the first showings. 

The answer?  Never.  Fucking never.  It's an embarrassment.

We've had people show up to block the theater - as they did in 1989 after we made a film based on "Piss Christ", the controversial photograph by Andres Serrano, but never anyone camping out because they couldn't wait to see it.

This has to change.  I called Robin Rafe (President of the Manka Bros. Theatrical Group) at around 3:00a.m. this morning and told her to get right on it.  I want movies made by Manka Bros. that generate excitement, and buzz, and long lines at the theaters.  In short, I want mega-blockbusters! 

I don't believe I am being unreasonable here.  I only want four or five of these types of films every year - year-after-year.  And this will fit nicely into our BIG CONTENT STRATEGY launched a few months ago.

I would like a list of these big ideas before Thanksgiving.  If you don't think this is possible, please cancel any Thanksgiving plans you may have and stay at the studio until I have my list.

P.S. - I will be in Aspen for Thanksgiving with Mariska Hargitay - so please send the list to my house there if it's not ready by Monday (November 23).

How about an idea about hot young vampires who hang around and doing various things? I know I know - that's Twilight. But by the time you get it written and up on the screen - years from now - it will be time for another film series about hot young vampires who hang around and do various things.

It's best that you sent her away. I have the same problem at my house and she's an 7 year old. Can't really do the camping thing. We did the online ordering thing and got tickets for Saturday at 3pm. Many of her friends will have seen the movie 5 times by then.

I have to say I have never stood in line for a Manka Bros. movie. And based on your slate, I probably won't be in the near future.

If Bella does not have Edward, then bella decides to not want to live, she simply doesn't care about anyone else except edward! It's like she doesnt even care about her mom or charlie and how destroyed they would be if she died!! Anybody else think the same thing

Robert Pattison is an inspiration to me, I mean seriously, he's only in his early-mid twenties and look at the success he's already achieved! A role model in the truest sense of the word.
