I didn't think it was conceived as a moneymaking enterprise, though.

There is still genuine concern for worry with Annapurna. The president leaving is big news. They really only have 1 success as a distributor: Sorry To Bother You. Sisters Brothers might not even cross 1m at the box office.

this entire situation is entirely unrelated to PTA in every capacity. the two films were dropped because they were projects of the president who left.

I think Annapurna still promised the financing for PTA. Whether some other studio ends up distributing remains to be seen like how Phantom Thread went down. Annapurna has certainly collected major Ls and are going through some behind the scenes turmoil, but Ellison already has a relationship with PTA after Master and Phantom Thread. She doesn't want to be the one turning down PTA. It's easier to drop those projects and keep the funding secure for PTA. Hopefully that happens sooner rather than later

Given that process, it's even more bizarre to me that this is what they turned out. I find it both boring and utterly nonsensical. This was genetically engineered to appeal to viewers? It plays like quirky 2000s indie madlibs. PDL and Eternal Sunshine, yes. But also Garden State, Donnie Darko, I Heart Huckabees, mumblecore, Tiny Furniture, all this shit I thought people hated. Then divorced from anything resembling human behaviour, conventional plotting, or experiential reality. At a glance, folks seem to be enjoying it too. Color me baffled, y'all.

Interesting to note Annapurna's troubles that are going on. They cancelled two films and the head of production got let go. Sounds like restructuring or financial troubles to me. Considering how much Annapurna has helped Anderson this doesn't bode well for whenever he thinks up a new film.

Dunno how these decisions are ultimately made, obvi, but Sorry to Bother You had been their bank this year with $17.4M and last year PT made $21m dom, $45mil ww, seated as their 7th highest film in both categories. So, idk. Whoever comes in better not be no dummy like me.
