  2. So Google can predict the draw of a movie pretty accurately, but only after it already has a website and trailers and stuff out there? Not sure how useful that information would be to film producers at that point. Presumably they’ve already basically finished the movie and done a lot of marketing at that point. I guess they could either ramp the marketing push up or down in the last couple weeks before the movie opened or something.

  3. Dunham on the reaction to the Patrick Wilson episode: “I get so tired of having to cry out “misogyny,” but that’s what’s going on in this situation.”

    UGH. UGH, Lena Dunham. Yes I’m sure if Michael Cera wrote and directed a movie in which he fucks Jennifer Anniston for a few days, everyone would be like, “Nothing at all to consider here.”
