The Devil’s in the details: 06-06-06

The movie business is officially possessed.

Or perhaps it’s just drunk with glee over the fabulous “X Men: The Last Stand” grosses. Either way, Fox domestic distribution president Bruce Snyder today actually let slip that the reason the studio remade “The Omen” was entirely due to the calendar’s unusual confluence of sixes. As in: Tuesday, June 6th, 2006. stanley52art3.jpg

As Snyder told the Hollywood Reporter‘s Martin Grove,

“If it was a Wednesday it wouldn’t be quite as difficult, but that’s the reason you make the movie (so you can launch it) when 666 rolls around again. So we had to go out on that Tuesday.”

Good Lord, man. That’s the reason you made the movie? Because the release date is a bunch of sixes?!

In the words of a certain nanny: Look at me Fox! It’s all for you!
