Harper found a little Your Highness mention in this article about Universal’s box office woes.
But in the nonbranded arena, Universal is looking to the domain of low-budget comedies, where it has had past successes, especially with the Apatow brand. And so it has lined up “Get Him to the Greek,” with Jonah Hill trying to cope with unruly rock star Russell Brand, for next summer.
Catching lightning in that bottle is harder than it looks, though. Future releases such as David Gordon Green’s medieval comedy “Your Highness” and “Paul,” the tale of British comic-book geeks who meet an alien, have some observers wondering if the films are too niche.
Dave Poland wrote a bit of a defense of Universal’s poor summer, if you’re interested in that kinda thing. I am. Ladies start swooning now.
