This is a little older, but the Vulture Blog is reporting on Jim Hill's Media Blog that not only does Disney feel that Pixar's Ratatouille was a flop at the box office, but Pixar feels that Disney did a lame job of marketing the product.
To this, I have two things to say:
- To Pixar: Shut up. The next time you want someone to market a movie to children about a rat in a French restaurant (in a summer with Spidey, Captain Jack, Transformers, and Shrek) why don't you try it yourself?
- To Disney: Shut up. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has made over $413 million worldwide (with a production budget of $150 million). May we all have flops as disastrous as this.
