At this point we're stressing over stuff beyond our control. Heck, this was never in our control. The movie did worse than everyone expected and that's that. I hate seeing all this arguing over whether it was successful or not. Correcting people by saying "look at this, it made 23 cents more in Zimbabwe than it did with the last film, it must be more successful!". You can rattle off any excuse you want and that doesn't change the fact that the movie under performed. Oh, well. No use dwelling on it. This isn't the end of the Muppets. Let's just move on, and have fun speculating the next big project!
