I'm in the middle of a project and I'm looking for lots of ideas of movie related "chance" style cards for events that good potentially effect a movie's reception. I'm looking for both humorous, possibly fact based, or straight forward ideas.

A few examples of what I am thinking:

"Your movie receives bad reviews. Box office down."

"Lead actor caught playing bongos naked."

"Actress replaced after calling director Hitler!"

Things like that. If anything comes of this and I use your ideas, you will be credited.

How about...

"Lead actress and director were having an affair!"

"90+ on Rotten Tomatoes"

"Nominated for several Oscars" (This one would work if it was still on release at the time of the nom announcements or something. Alternatively...)

"Grand Prix Winner At Cannes!" (And along the same lines...)

"Nominated for several Golden Raspberries"

"Lead walks off the project!"

"Film is based on some 80s nostalgia thing. Box office up up up!"

"Actor publically claims the film's terrible"

"Release date pushed back"

"Needless 3D added."
