The comedy Sleepwalk With Me opened last weekend to $68,801 in one theater, which, while impressive, doesn't hold a candle to The Avengers' $1.4 billion, and yet there's a feud between Avengers director Joss Whedon and Sleepwalk With Me's director, co-writer and star Mike Birbiglia. Well, sort of.
Based on Birbiglia's one-man show about his career in comedy, love life, and all-too-real sleepwalking affliction, Whedon shot a personal video a few weeks ago that urged fans to "stop" Birbiglia's Sleepwalk With Me and "boycott" the movie when it opens in some 30-odd theaters before it could affect The Avengers, which is now down to less than 500 theaters. "We're about to beat Joss Whedon, who declared war on us," joked Birbiglia to Hollywood Dailies. Or was he joking?
