'Warrior' isn't the only underseen September release out on DVD this week; 'Straw Dogs' arrived on Tuesday as well, only with almost as little fanfare as it had upon initial release. The remake of Sam Peckinpah's notorious revenge thriller earned just $10 million at the box office, and was quickly labeled one of the bigger bombs of 2011. Not that star James Marsden is too concerned with that reception.
"Nobody sets out to make a bad movie," he told ET. "Nobody sets out for their film to do mediocre at the box office. [...] Obviously I want my movies to do well and for people to dig my work, but at some point it's out of your power. It's your responsibility as an actor to deliver a performance that you're proud of. If people like my movies, that means more to me than if they do well at the box office. I can name a movie I did that made a lot of money at the box office, but I don't think it's a good movie. I think 'Straw Dogs' is a better movie than that one, so creatively I'm prouder of this one."
That's a good outlook on fame and life in general -- you can only control what you can control -- but it raises the question: which of his successful films does James Marsden think is not good? Let's investigate!
1. 'X-Men: The Last Stand': $234.3M
2. 'X2: X-Men United': $214.9M
3. 'Superman Returns': $200M
4. 'X-Men': $157.2M
5. 'Enchanted': $127.8M
6. 'Hairspray': $118.8M
7. 'Hop': $108M
8. 'The Notebook': $81M
9. '27 Dresses': $76.8M
10. 'Death at a Funeral': $43.7M
Marsden also did voice work in 'Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore,' which made $43.5 million. So! Which of those films was Marsden referring to? Speculate wildly -- and likely inaccurately -- in the comments section below.
'Straw Dogs' is on DVD now.
