Puss In Boots Gets Snow Stormed!

"Puss in Boots", latest of animated movies based on DWA-s franchise "Shrek", made it to the top of this weekend box office with $34 million opening. But it disappoints DWA, as it estimated opening was $47.8 million. What can I say, even the Puss can not predict the weather, and this time weather played against it!

But is it only weathers fault? I would say that it is not so! Although early winter snow definitely influenced people not coming to the movie theatres, it's hard to believe that it was determining factor for such difference between estimated and realized.

Loved Shrek when first watched the movie. It was new and completely different view of fairy tale industry, and Myers did terrific job with being the Voice of Shrek. Second part was expected, and managed to exploit the atmosphere and characters from the first part. Watch it, laughed a little, and than quickly forgot about it. Then came third part, and the fourth. And it was all old news. Painfully obvious attempts to squeeze another buck from franchise.

Puss appeared in second movie, which owed lot of its success to horde of movie stars that voiced it's characters. Puss voice was Antonio Banderas, and did good job too. Spilled few catchy phrases, made sad eyes at the audience and that was all he had time to do, sharing big screen with all other characters.

After Shrek 4, obviously it was time to change something in this universe. People just got bored looking at the same characters doing same thing for the fourth time. And what DWA decided? Let the Puss take the stage! Hardly the size to fill Shrek's massive appearance, but hey, it has sad eyes, right.

Unfortunately, it looks like that even Puss sad eyes no longer can help reviving things that are done for. Like I said, loved Shrek after first watching, and would appreciate if DWA make maybe one or two sequels and then allowed franchise to slide to deserved pension, after making them hundreds of millions of dollars in profit.

But today that seems to be impossible, every idea, character or any other product that brings money is exploited to the point when it starts to annoy people. And fifth movie set in the SAME world, with SAME type of characters, simply can not bring people to pay to watch it in the way something new and intriguing can.

Puss will bring back profit, less than expected, but, thanks to the small competition of animated CGI movies, it will make some. Hope that it will be enough to produce some young author's new movie, with fresh ideas and new approach. And allow old Shrek to withdraw with some dignity left. I believe that it is not easy for producers to constantly struggle to bring something new to the audience, but they are making more profit than ever, and in this world you can not have both.
