Haven't seen Sobibor but will probably try to look for that one and a few others. Was hoping they would submit Decision: Liquidation because that one was cool but of course, action movies never win anyways.

I was going through this twitter laden thread when I hit this old post. I must ask, who goes to these films anyways??? They are smut, and worse they are boring smut. I run across them when I am flipping through the premium channels, and I can hardly get through the first fifteen minutes of any of them. Does this person who plays Anastasia think that acting consists solely of biting her lip and wincing in a sexy manner?  I realize that 75% of all box office comes from outside the US these days, so maybe these films are big in third world countries because they get to see and laugh at the "crazy rich Americans".

The audience probably is comprised of the same readership that made E.L. James' 2011 novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" a worldwide best seller. Plus the spouses and/or significant others they drag with them to theaters.
