"THIS...IS...um...wait..."

The Beat-Down:

Yes, “Clash of the Titans” made money, $61 million to be exact, which is exactly half its budget, which means Warners will continue turning out new movies featuring Romans, huzzah.

The Beaten-Down:

At least we can believe shameless and relentless promotion can’t save every movie: “She’s Out of My League” is tumbling off the charts and clearly wasn’t the outsize hit that we were expecting from…er…Jay Baruchel. So, yeah.
