Pretty boys don’t always cut it…
It may be time for Zac Efron to crawl back to Disney’s womb. With Efron’s first film project not related to Disney called Me and Orson Welles bombing at the box office, the world is hardly inspired. It is reported that in its limited release, the movie had a 2750 per screen average and only grossed $343,000 to date.
According to IMDB, the plot is, ” A teenager is cast in the Mercury Theatre production of ‘Julius Caesar’ directed by a young Orson Welles in 1937.” If the studio execs were hoping to lean on his tween-heartthrob status to carry this movie, they thought wrong. Yes, he has crazy girl fans, however, the story is more than enough to make the girls scratch their heads and turn to buy tickets toNew Moon again. Also, sadly to say, it is no longer the era of the Efron and High School Musical.
What, girls don’t want to see some ordinary popular basketball player singing a love song to his girlfriend? They’d rather see a vampire who sparkles in the sun and has to contemplate whether to turn his girlfriend into a vampire or not? Is that really what makes Hollywood go round?
If Efron wants to keep being in the spotlight, he should try to vie for a part in the next Twilight movies, or go crawling back to the mouse with an expensive piece of cheese. But really who cares about a pretty boy going bust when they are in desperate over supply as parking attendants in Hollywood?
