You must REALLY hate Marlee Matlin.

I don't hate anyone. Speaking of MM, I actually enjoy her work. Not sure what you're getting at.

Funny, I was about to post the same video link.

I totally know what she means about what happens when she gets tired. Mine doesn't seem to be as severe, and I can't move mine like she can. But again, I had two surgeries as a child, as well as several years of eye exercises.

I've watched a lot of stuff with KB in it and I have to say I never noticed even a hint of the lazy eye. Maybe your TV is just too large, if it's so incredibly distracting

I noticed it on my own, in SD, before I heard about it anywhere else.

If anything it gives me extra respect for her as an actress since I know it's one more thing she has to control.

exactly... I personally never noticed it but more power to her if she's able to control it while being filmed in high definition to be shown on a 30 foot screen. She always struck me as a down-to-earth chick, I think she'll be famous for a long time unlike some of her age-group counterparts.

I notice it on occasion, but it's usually very slight. So I wasn't surprised when I read that she was born with strabismus.

I thought she was in her upper 20's... I just meant girls who start relatively young then devolve into train wrecks or just burn out because they're not actually talented. I looked up KB's credit sand it looks like she wasn't actively working much until she was in her early 20's so she doesn't qualify as a "child star", maybe that's what keeps her (seemingly) level headed unlike a lot others.

The latest KS update answers the mystery of the missing waiter scene. It was cut from the script, but the winning bidder did get a line:

In the final cut, Steve appears as the enthusiastic vlogger who introduces a viral video featuring one of our unannounced cameos:
In other news, theater attendance for the movie has dropped off dramatically over the past week, according to a report I read this morning. Total take so far is about $2.9M - still not bad, but not any kind of runaway hit.

I'm not surprised by the week 2 attendance. I'm actually surprised *anyone* went to see it after the first week. I fully anticipated that the home video (on-demand) viewing would have fully eclipsed the theater attendance.

Actually, I didn't even realize that AMC had booked the movie for a second week. I figured it was a 1 week special engagement.

I'm anxious to find out what it did in VOD/digital sales/rentals.

Those numbers don't look great, but it's not in as many theaters as many movies. I hope the VOD is higher than expected. Do we know (sorry if it's in this giant thread) how much the studio wants to see before they call it a "success?"

Rob has said there's "a number" (i.e., probably not really a single number but certain concepts across various media) but hasn't gone into more detail yet, and I'm pretty sure has said it'll be some time before numbers come in for things like VOD/digital media.

I should add that I still don't see it. And I would not kick her out of bed either. (I would just have to convince my wife to stay. )

But don't forget to add in the Kickstarter money of $5,702,153. And the fact that Warner Bros. agreed to pick up the tab on fulfillment of the KS perks, so the full amount was available for production. Then figure that WB didn't spend much on promotion, and that there should be some decent revenue from streaming/VOD/rentals/sales. Combine all those and it's made somewhere between $9-10 million. Certainly not enough to make Hollywood start bringing back every canceled TV series, but enough that it made some money and they should be happy with it.

I don' know if this has been posted already, but https://www.kickstarter.com/stories/veronica is a great read - it's about the Kickstarter campaign and the fans. No spoilers.

I rented it via VUDU last weekend. I thought it was pretty good. Felt more like a long episode of a TV show then a movie, but still enjoyable.

Ditto here. I too had surgery as a young child (60's) and wore an eye patch for a while too. Mine isn't too terribly bad, but it's more noticeable when I am looking to my left.

Sadly I'm still self conscious of it when talking to people face to face and I find myself seating myself in such a way when (for example) I'm sitting at a table with folks I've just met. I work with a nice lady who has it much worse than me and it doesn't phase her at all so I am trying to just ignore mine as much as possible but it's tough sometimes. I keep thinking folks are looking at the lazy eye and it makes me a bit paranoid.
