Maybe it's because customers know what they like

IMDB is in pain, but I think I know how to relieve them:

Trainwreck, the Judd Apatow/Amy Schumer comedy, was off 43.7% from last week's $30M take, with an estimate $16.9M weekend. It is hard to determine whether the horrific events in Lafayette, Louisiana, where an assailant shot 11 people, killing two of them in a theater playing Trainwreck, affected patronage elsewhere and it's painful to even have to consider it. The film has a domestic cume of $61.2M. 

Yes it is hard to determine. It's even ridiculous. How about it's just a sweet enough movie that doesn't quite live up to the Schumer promise? But hey, we're glad to know you think those events are horrific. We could use leaders like you.

In public comments, if you don't say "horrific" or the equivalent, you are deemed to be saying they are not horrific. Its always safest to go with the accepted adjectival statement.

Of course shooting any one, especially random citizens, but even fleeing suspects, accidentally , in self defense or as part of a firing squad is always in some sense horrific but I feel I've gotten off the point

Yes, indeed, definitely off point. Well done!

Personally, though, I'm going with "praiseworthy" until we have more information.

There goes my burgeoning, though long-gestating political career.

Considering Schumer is completely unproven in movies, they've got to be pretty happy with the grosses. It's already Judd Apatow's biggest hit since Knocked Up.

The question is was the shooter inspired by the movie, or was Ant Man sold out?
