'Halo 3' Kills Stiller Movie?

In what has to be some of the haziest logic ever to come out of the spin machine that is Hollywood, studio executives are blaming Halo 3 for the poor box office numbers of Ben Stiller's The Heartbreak Kid. They further go on to note that, if everyone who logged into XBox Live to play the game over the weekend had bought a ticket for the film, there would have been another $27 million in sales, and that's without people bringing dates!

We're not sure which logic fails more totally here, the idea that all of the people playing Halo 3 were doing that specifically instead of going to see a poorly-reviewed Ben Stiller movie, or the idea that even a small percentage of them would be able to find dates to bring to said movie.

Either way, this is ludicrous.
