Life Gets Death Sentence as the Matrix Zeitgeist Continues

The Matrix continues to be the movie to see. At the rate it's going, it should hit $100 million by next Wednesday at the very latest.
Life is set to be yet another bomb for Universal Pictures and Eddie Murphy, who lately can't seem to have a hit outside of remakes of 60's movies. The ad campaign is laugh free. Murphy's last picture, Holy Man, had a laugh free campaign as well and it opened to a pathetic $5.1 million, his worst as star.
The delayed Goodbye Lover is being dumped by Warner Bros. onto only 865 screens, and should perform accordingly.
