Because Allen has always tended to work with modest budgets, his movies have generally ended up in the black, if not often to the extent of his biggest ever box office hit, Midnight in Paris, which grossed $151 million worldwide. Even the stinkers in the bunch (like 2008’s Cassandra’s Dream) have recouped overseas, where his films do the majority of their business. Can this pattern continue?

In the end, time will tell if Steyer’s higher standing in the polls is a fluke or not. A more recent Quinnipiac poll had him at less than 4%, and an Iowa poll last week had him at 2%. After the Iowa caucuses next month, it’s very likely that the question of why Steyer is there will be moot. … [Read more...] about Democratic debate leaves a crucial question unanswered: Why was Tom Steyer even there?
