    Tristan. I agree that Francisco`s stori is surprising, on monday I got a new Saab 99 Turbo since getting a cheque for $9386 this past 5 weeks and more than ten-grand lass month. it's definitly the most financialy rewarding Ive ever had. I actually started 10-months ago and pretty much immediately startad making over $85 per-hr. I work through this website, .............mac22.com

    Even though SHORT TERM 12 had the second highest per screen average of all films opening this weekend, I wonder how much better it would have done with something other than the lousy ad campaign Cinedigm came up with. Here is this intimate, humane film with a beautiful cast -- and they pick a rather smudgy photo, with an unrecognizable Brie Larson, of what looks like a bunch of people fleeing zombies (or some other unnamed dystopian/apocalyptic horror). What is depicted only has meaning or context for those who have already seen the film. I wish they'd trash this ad and come up with something that in some way approximates the content and feeling of this wonderful film.

    What a bummer the Short Term 12 opening must be for the filmmakers. It certainly looked like they were on a roll, until these numbers came out.
