Just as the title says
Holy shit. The highest of 2014?!
I know there's every chance another flick this year might exceed this, but hot damn, that's pretty impressive.
AoE looks like it could hit a billion. While I'm not crazy about the films themselves I know this'll benefit the brand as a whole, so yay!
Aoe is definetly going to surpass dotm at this rate. It hasn't even been released in some countries too
It's impressive yes and GOTG has a chance to pass it cause you know it's marvel and marvel has been doing great lately.
Just pointing out - at the moments its a massive failure. Unless it earns more than DOTM it wont justify the higher cost. While it may have grossed $750M that means its only earned a max of $540M profit considering it cost $210M to make. Put a list for an example. (Overall earnings - Cost)
Transformers ROTF; $636M
Transformers DOTM; $928M
Transformers AOE; $540M
Captain America The Winter Soldier; $542M
While not a 'flop' unless it earns another 400M then its a failure in terms of being a sequel - underperforming.
While yeah, it's nice that my namesake doing pretty well around the world, isn't it also important to note that it's doing comparatively worse in the US? It may be the highest grossing worldwide, but over here it'll probably end up around under 275 due to fatigue.
Point is, it doesn't feel like it's doing that well.
I wish it was doing better domestically. But this year no movies are doing fantastic business in the United States. Hunger Games is probably the only movie that will make $300+ million at the domestic box office unless they also have a huge drop.
I don't think a $540 million profit a bad thing... If it is sign me up.
Its not the best by a long shot but ill take it if it was me.
That's likely because it is not doing that well... compared to the other movies this will likely give the studio a low amount of profit - considering it cost more to make. At the moment it hasn't beaten Transformers; 2007 in terms of profit.
Refer to my other post for examples.
True... but as a studio that spent $210M and only double their profit when last time they spent $195M and more than quadrupled it - they are going to be disappointed.
DOTM cost $195,000,000
profit of around $1,000,000,000
AOE cost $210,000,000
profit of around $540,000,000
While it still has a while to go - it is performing terribly compared to ROTF and DOTM and at the moment is barely on par with TF;2007.
I saw your post after I posted mine, but yeah. After looking at what's out, general word of mouth, and what's coming, I'll be surprised if it gets near TF1 in the two weeks between now and Guardians and the 3 weeks between now and TMNT.
Assuming that it makes at least 2 million on weekdays and 10 million on weekends for 2 weeks, it'll end up around the LEGO Movie/TWS before losing any momentum in the US while breaking records worldwide.
I have no idea where you're getting that from. While it is underperforming in the US, it's actually doing slightly better than DOTM worldwide. DOTM had $705 million on July 15th, 2011 after opening almost everywhere on June 29th. AOE currently has $752 million on July 13th after opening in a majority of countries on June 27th.
Aoe does have a chance of passing Xmen in domestic and maybe the Lego movie to be in the top 3 in domestic and number 1 in worldwide.
Woah woah hold on there buddy. In terms of profit the theatres usually get half the money and some countries offer small percentage of the box office cut back to the studio. There is no way DOTM made a profit of 1,000,000,000 There is an agreement between the studios and the theaters that allows an adjusting split over time so the studio gets more of the gross in the first weekend and then less as weeks go by. This is after the theaters take out their "operating costs" which are an agreed upon imaginary number that ultimately keeps the split at about 50%. This also does not address the studio's costs in Prints and Advertising which adds millions to their negative costs for every picture.
I'm not surprised.
This is Just Joyous.
And while on the topic of profits: Now you also see why they've been buddying up with the Chinese audience.
tbh i think they stopped caring about domestic box office ages ago. They knew the movie would do well world wide. Thats why they did the huge marketing push for China etc.
Correct me if I'm wrong but AOE is still not out in Italy.
