Davos’ Last Stand Flops at the Box Office – Gold Goats ‘n Guns

Where’s Roger Corman when you need him?

Davos’ Last Stand is the best flop in history, forcing a complete rethink of a studio’s project management and restructuring.  We’ll have a lot of fun going over the post-mortem on it but only so as to distract us from the horror from the previous entries in the series.

So Davos’ Last Stand hit theatres a couple of weeks ago. Starring OmicronVID-9/11 as the latest unseen killer this was supposed to be the horror movie of a generation.

Geopolitically, this is the worst opening for a movie since Ishtar.

Sure the overnight preview box office was good. The Dow off 1100 on Opening Day. Gold thwapped. Bitcoin crushed. But then people started talking about the train wreck they’d seen.

The response to OmicronVID-9/11’s performance has been nothing short of hilarious.  

The early reviews pointed to an overblown ‘whisper number’ on box office receipts.

The hits just kept coming. The first scathing review came from no less than Goldman Sachs which screamed that they were not informed of the release of Omicron. They compared OmicronVID’s acting ability to the best on PornHub.

I’ve read a lot of Goldman notes over the years and they generally sound like someone desperately trying to convince you to take the opposite side of the trade from them…so they can fleece you.

That one was different. It was one that made it clear that they had no idea during production that Omicron was so bad.

Translation: Where the hell did this shit come from and why weren’t we allowed to front-run it?

Two days later, JPM’s Marco Kolanovic went on CNBC BubbleVision with his review, to blow up the idea that we should remain glued to our screens over the latest release from the Maus Haus, scared for our lives.

Kolanovic was the first of many to say the quiet part out loud; that OmicronVID was so unaffecting as a serial killer it may wind up doing the exact opposite, immunizing the world from the next sequel in the series. That if anything, Omicron may be, in fact, a better vaccine than anything cooked up by Pfizer, Moderna or even the Russians.

It was, as reviews go, as devastating as anything written about that horrific Hoffman/Beatty fiasco from 40 years ago.

I know, I read them all. They were a hoot.

Be seeing you
