    Once again, it's a Jim Jarmusch movie. No one involved in this expected a blockbuster.

    Go look at his filmography. He's a wonderful and important filmmaker, but he doesn't make big hits, and no one gives him money expecting one.

    Downton Abbey still has the magic as the movie cleaned up at the box office this weekend, raking in $31 million, easily besting the much hyped Ad Astra which came in second, managing only $19 million on a reputed budget of $90 million. Does that make the Brad Pitt sci-fi flick a bust, or it too early to make that determination?

    I usually wait a few weeks before making a judgement on it. Disney has to hope it works. Because its been a huge down year on 21st Century Fox films. Its not a good sign that a British period film with a budget of $13-20 million beat a big budgeted Hollywood film. Not a good sign for Ad Astra.

    Same, it was no where near me. I can't help but wonder if it will get re-released or more widely released nearer to Halloween.

    I tried The Numbers , IMDB and Wiki. But there wasn't a budget last I saw for it either.

    To be fair it's a period film with 6 successful TV seasons worth of fanbase behind it.

    Also Victorian period pieces are actually somewhat cheap to produce in England - not only is enough of the architecture intact, they do so many that the costumes can be priced on the economy of scale.
