Re: News & Discussion Thread - Part 2
Rothman was getting much better toward the end of his time at Fox though. He realized how terrible Wolverine was and how steep the drop was from 1st to 2nd weekend B.O. wise, in addition to seeing how successful Avatar, a movie in which he just let the director do his thing, was. That's when started to back off, and Fox started having more success like First Class and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
