I don't think she's a box office draw anymore, if she ever was. I can't think of one film she's done that's been a big financial success, like summer blockbuster success. So her choices in films probably have a lot to do with it.

Australia looked interesting when I saw the trailer, in spite of the fact that it was a Nicole Kidman movie. But if I had actually considered seeing it, I would have changed my mind when I looked it up and found it was a three hour long Baz Luhrmann movie. Forget it.

Who wants to sit through a three hour movie in November, right as the holiday rush starts?

Well, there was Moulin Rouge, Batman Forever, The Hours, and Happy Feet. But nothing where she was a the only star, like Bewitched.
