“Jackass 3D” tops “Avatar” on Viacom Chief’s movie list
â€śMy favorite 3D movie of all time is Jackass 3D,â€ť Viacomâ€™s Chief Executive Philippe Dauman said on Wednesday at Â Reuters Global Media Summit. The movie, which grossed $116 million in the United States, according to Box Office Mojo wasÂ â€śrelatively low costâ€ť and â€śsignificantly profitable,” Dauman said.Â “You’ll see more of that coming.â€ťÂ
What else might the future hold for Viacom in 3D? Possibly Snooki.
Reuters Breakingviews columnist Rob Cox asked Dauman if audiences canÂ soon expect a Jersey Shore in the third dimension.
â€śIâ€™d love to see that,â€ť Dauman said, â€śGym, tan and laundry in 3D.â€ť
Earlier this month, Viacom said it is sellingÂ Harmonix, the video game publisher behind Rock Band and this yearâ€™sÂ Microsoft KinectÂ hit “Dance Central.” Â Dauman said the sale is proceeding swifty but declinedÂ toÂ divulge details prospective buyers.Â Media SummitÂ guestÂ chief executives Bobby Kotick and Strauss Zelnick Â from Activision Blizzard and Take-TwoÂ respectively, said they’re not interested.
â€śWhoever puts the best proposal forward from all perspectives will be the winner,â€ť DaumanÂ said.
