Remember Me is Worth the Fight: Remember Me Second Saturday

Often times a small, thoughtful and complex movie like Remember Me would debut at a film festival and be lucky to see limited release throughout the United States. With thought-provoking subject matter that asks the audience to think and feel things that are sometimes simple, sometimes profound and sometimes uncomfortable with how closely they mirror real life joys and sorrows, Remember Me debuted on 2,212 screens this weekend and brought in a thoroughly respectable $8,089,139 million. Going up against the monstrous Alice in Wonderland and the heavily marketed, big budget Matt Damon vehicle, Green Zone, among other more widely released films, Remember Me had a huge amount of competition.
  • Metacritic user rating 80/100
  • Rotten Tomato user rating 79%
  • Yahoo users rating A-
  • Boxoffice mojo user rating B
As Scott Mendelson pointed out in his article on the Huffington Post yesterday, "We must recall that a movie like this wouldn't have made $1.75million without the drawing power of Pattinson."

With a drop off over 20% less on Saturday than any of the Twilight movies, the fans helped to make a difference by showing up and bringing friends and family back to see Remember Me on Saturday, March 13th. But Remember Me still needs our support. The fight isn't over. While critics have been exceedingly split on the film, audiences have not; Rated the #1 film right now on Fandango, Remember Me has resonated in the hearts of those who have seen it -- So much so that word of mouth is building all over the Internet and offline including message boards, movie sites, AP articles and more. It made the front page of AOL today, the Huffington Post continues to cover it, new glowing reviews have come in the past 24 hours and the sound is getting louder.

"Remember Me is a touching love story, but its broader take of familial relations packs a greater emotional punch." - USA Today

Remember Me is worth the Fight!

"The fact is, "Remember Me" is a well-made movie. I cared about the characters. I felt for them." - Roger Ebert

Robert Ebert, who gave Remember Me 3 out of 4 stars in his review last week, Tweeted yesterday that he's heard audiences are showing affection to this film and he's right...Audiences are saying this is one of the best films they've seen in ages and recommending it to their friends and family and colleagues. Clearly critics -- at least in this case -- are out of touch with what the American movie audience is ready for when it comes to the movies they watch. Popcorn movies are fun and have their place but Remember Me has proven audiences like to think, too. They like to be challenged and they like to walk away from a film wanting to discuss it long after the credits have rolled.

"Coulter wants to explore the act of mourning as a theme, and how death sometimes reminds us that every minute of life should be savored. On that level, Remember Me certainly succeeds." - The Miami Herald

Of the top five films this week, Remember Me ($16M budget, 2,212 theaters)
actually came in THIRD for Average (PTA), behind AIW ($200M budget,
3,728 theaters) and GZ ($100M budget, 3,003 theaters).
As some of you might already know, we started the Remember Me Saturday campaign to help the film's box office as much as possible as well as unite fans in support of a film we all hoped would make a mark. And so here we are on the second week and the fan's support is just as important as it was last week for opening weekend -- Maybe even more important. As word-of- mouth builds, we need to keep pushing and so we're calling on you once again to head out to the theater and bring your friends and family along this Saturday, March 20th. Does this mean you should stay away during the week? Of course not! See Remember Me as many times as you'd like. But be there March 20th, too, and let's show Rob and the rest of the good people who worked hard to bring us this wonderful film that we're in fighting form and ready to show our unified support.

"For those looking for the rare romantic youth drama without vampyric overtones or other gimmicks, Remember Me should satisfy and it works as a much-needed change of pace for the talented Pattinson who remains one of the most watchable of our young stars."- Box Office Magazine

We need major Rob & Twilight sites/blogs/Facebooks/Twitters, etc. to keep putting the word out and we're asking you to continue actively promoting this Fan Supported Event as much as you possibly can.

And above all, keep talking about Remember Me where and whenever you can. Write reviews, tell everyone you meet about the film, rate it on the movie sites and express what it is this film has meant to you, personally. The people who have seen Remember Me are the best advertising out there. There's nothing better.

"Remember Me" is a smart, engaging drama about young love flourishing amid sadness and loss." - The Hollywood Reporter

Pepto Bismol, Box Office & Rob, Oh My! -- Remember Me's Opening Weekend

Well, the time is here. Remember Me finally opens Nationwide in the U.S. on Friday, including scattered midnight shows in some of the larger cities. Many of us have been waiting long before we watched him on the streets of New York and worried for his safety with those wretched sorority row she-devils who tried to hump him in front of 80 million paparazzi cameras.

9-months later, one cab that may or may not have bumped the holy Pattinson knee, a gazillion Twitter-devil sightings, thousands of mentally-challenged journalists who still think we're all little 12-year-olds and a fandom that seems to split more regularly than a cell filled with the C-word, Remember Me is ready to hit theaters.

The question now is will YOU be there? Some movie-industry "insiders" and tracking devices seem to think not. Studio executives and the crotchety old prognosticators are obsessed with opening weekend box office and while I'd like to say phooey to all of them, opening weekend is important for a reason. There are a hot ton of factors that play into why, but the main one is that Hollywood only speaks box office and the opening weekend will be a significant indication of the money Remember Me will likely make. And the more money it makes the more word-of-mouth it will get, and the more of a success it will be called.

New Moon opened to a $140.7 million dollar weekend because...well, it's the dun dun dun, Twilight Saga New Moon. But Remember Me was never intended to be Twilight 3: The New York city Edward Smokes And Fucks A Lot Interlude. Remember Me was never going to have corny crowns at Burger King, shirtless puppies, silly Remember Me lipstick or Chris Cooper sexy beast cardboard cutouts.

Hey, I'd buy the cut out. Just sayin'. But you know what I mean.

Nope, Remember Me is and always was, intended to be a small film. The thing is, anything with Robert's name attached to it? Well, it doesn't stay small, even if it should.

Hell, if you attached Rob to say, Tommy couch-jumping-Scientology-loving Cruise? He probably wouldn't need a box to stand on anymore. Put him next to a penny? That mofo will presto-chango transform into a hundred dollar bill. That's just the way it is with Rob right now. And we're lucky for that as is he. But that kind of mystery magic is a double-edged sword when it comes to something like his first film role outside the Twilight juggernaut.

As a fan, I've almost grown used to this idea that you attach Rob's name to something? It's going to turn all glittery and shit just because. But movies are a tricky thing, not a sure thing. There's no exact science at play here even though fan boys might try to tell you differently. There are no guarantees; Remember Me could hit theaters with a Tyson-hard knockout or just lay there whimpering on the ground, all beaten and battered-like with all the other films that get released to the masses only to be crushed by lack of attendance.

What's that? Surely Rob's popularity will trump what the movie prognosticators are saying this week, though, right? Certainly anyone who considers themselves a Rob fan understands that this film and supporting it for him is important. They'll all be there opening weekend, I mean he's Rob! Right?!? He's the freaking golden E-ticket! Remember Me will be fine, won't it?

Let's take, for instance, Sara Palin (and I'll refrain from saying please). She can see Russia from her house, but no one -- not even the geekiest of nerdy, Rob-hating geekazoidians -- can see into the future and determine what's going to happen this weekend. Sites like Box Office Mojo and Box Office Blah Blah Blah, etc., can all make their predictions of doom and gloom or glory, but none of them really know. Anything can happen, even with Rob's name attached. That's just the truth.

Rob may be able to pimp out a trillion GQ magazines with one smouldery stare, but will all of his fans show up to a movie where restraint is not his middle name?

You see, as I said above, the only sure thing about movies (even movies starring effhot, talented guys named Rob Pattinson) is that you can't be sure.

The wild card here in this cluster pile of Pepto and worry is Rob. Well, I take that back; it's Rob and his fans. Who are his fans, really? How many of them does Rob have? Which ones like the dead, pale guy that sparkles like a disco ball on crack more than the flesh and blood, real boy? Which ones dig the human but hate Eddie? Will Cedric fans turn up or did they leave when he bit the Potter dust? And what about Gale fans and Art fans and curious-voice-dubbed-in-a-really-cheesy-ass-way Viking boy fans? And the biggest question of all, how about those Twilight fans? Will they turn up and support Robert Pattinson, or will they stay home pining for Edward who is cheating on Bella with a teeny girl named Clare and has daddy issues with a guy named Charles and not Carlyle?

I'm sure you can figure out that your guess is just about as good as mine.

*Shrugs shoulders and taps fingers patiently waiting to see.*

Remember Me is the all-important first step for Rob's career outside the franchise and the industry is watching to see what happens. Why wouldn't they be? Everything Rob does is news so why should this weekend be any different?

They're watching to see if Rob has an audience that believes in him enough to slap down $10 on a sticky counter, buy some uber-crappy popcorn and just plain, old see his movie. The only thing Hollywood cares about these days seems to be money, so if my $10 will help keep Rob up on the big screen for years of side-of-the-mouth drooling to come, who am I to argue with Hollywood?

I'm a fan of Robert Pattinson and I'll be there opening weekend. Will you?

If you’re considering seeing Remember Me but you’re not sure about going opening weekend, here are a few reasons from all across the Internet on why you should make the decision to be there for Rob. Show Hollywood and the watching industry that you believe in Robert Pattinson and pledge to see Remember Me on opening weekend, March 12-14th, 2010. Let Hollywood hear your voice loud and clear on opening weekend by being at the theater to help open Remember Me as big as we possibly can.

And you KNOW I'm not above begging.

Comments fromAcross the Internet About the Importance of Opening Weekend

“The only thing that matters to anyone in Hollywood is money right now.”

“The opening box office numbers might not mean much to you... but in the long-run, they'll mean a ton to the future life of other Robert Pattinson films”.

“Every one of you can make a difference. But it has to be opening weekend to make it loud and clear.”

“Hollywood only speaks box office and box office estimates are all about the opening weekend. That means the turnout opening weekend will determine how Remember Me is viewed. Will it be a winner or a loser? You can affect that answer.”

“The answer has everything to do with the astonishing importance that films' opening weekends have taken on in the mind of Hollywood. And Hollywood now operates under the conviction that if your films look like losers to the insiders after their opening weekends, they will become losers in the mind of the public.”
