Will Nicolas Cage's Knowing crack the success code?

Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage found his calling at the ripe age of 17, and considering his artistic genealogy, it wasn't surprising that the handsome nephew of filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola chose films as his career.

Son of a literature professor and a choreographer mother, Nicolas was a school dropout when he made his debut in the film Fast Times at Ridgemont High in 1981. The '80s saw him playing quirky and bizarre roles in movies like Raising Arizona, Peggy Sue Got Married and Moonstruck.

However, the '90s brought a U-turn in Nicolas' career, during which he played diverse roles, ranging from a violent ex-con in Wild at Heart to a sweet-natured private eye in Honeymoon in Vegas. Playing a dying alcoholic in Leaving Las Vegas got him an Oscar in the Best Actor category; it also helped the versatile actor bag a few big budget films. By the time movies like Con Air, Face/Off, City of Angels, National Treasure and Ghost Rider were released, cinema goers had long forgotten his famous relatives and hailed Nicolas as an acting genius.

In his upcoming sci-fi film Knowing, the actor plays the role of an astrophysics professor who opens a time capsule that contains some chilling predictions - some that have already taken place and others that are about to. Using astrological and numerological parameters, Ganesha predicts whether Nicolas' forthcoming film will break any records at the Box Office.

Numerological analysis of the title Knowing
As per Chaldean Numerology, the title Knowing adds up to 2. Number 2 is ruled by positive Moon, which dons the mantle of creativity and imagination. Hence, Ganesha feels the director's expert film-making techniques may click with the viewers. This movie's storyline may also touch an emotional chord as Moon rules this factor.

Knowing releases on 20th March, 2009. Primarily, the influence of number 2 on the film's release date indicates that it may do good business at the Box Office after its premiere.

Astrological Analysis of Knowing
In the release time chart of the film, the 10th House of success is occupied by retrograde Venus and Sun. Venus signifies art and Sun stands for glory. Retrograde Venus indicates that the director and actors of this film may have adopted an out-of-the-box approach to present something innovative.

Sun is closely associated with Venus, indicating that the audience will welcome the new elements in the film. The cause of concern here is that Lord of the 10th House of success, Jupiter, is debilitated in the 8th House but is giving exalted aspect to the 2nd House of finance. Ascendant Lord Mercury is placed in the 9th House. Sarvashtakvarga of this film's release time chart contains more auspicious bindus in the 11th House of gains than in the 10th House.

Considering all the points explained above, Ganesha feels that cinema goers may appreciate Knowing and find its plot interesting. But, it may not smash records at the Box Office because the 10th Lord is debilitated in the 8th House. The positive point here is because it gives exalted aspect to the House of finance, the makers of Knowing will be able to recover their investment.

The opening business may also be first-rate, but it may not continue for a very long time. All in all, the first weekend and first week's business may remain very important for this film, says Ganesha.

Good luck to the cast and crew of Knowing.

Ganesha's Grace,
