2008, CITY OF EMBER not to bad family movie

I have no idea why this interesting family film failed. Maybe the combination of science fiction and the focus on young people didn't attract the stupid adolescent boy market Hollywood likes to service. Maybe the lack of hard core violence or sleazy teenage sex scenes didn't give the studio anything they wanted to sell. Who knows? The City Of Ember had a good cast and fairly decent pacing. The film is essentially a treasure hunt type of story with the two young leads looking for the way out of an underground city that has been established after a post apocalyptic catastrophe.
Some films just don't catch on with audiences.
