you are right, but this is fox we are talking about, not the brightest film company out there, but probably the most arrogant, they make disney and sony look modest.
Mission: Impossible - III: $134M domestic vs $150M budget. Made $263M overseas. Got a sequel.
(we have a winner!!!, good research, i missed that one, but then again, Tom Cruise does help produce these movies, and HE wouldn't end HIS series on a downer)
The second Narnia movie: $141M domestic vs $225M budget. Made $278M overseas. Got a sequel.
(close, but disney didnt make the sequel, FOX did, so that one doesn't count)
Kung Fu Panda 2: $165M domestic vs. $150M budget (didn't really tank but underperformed domestically). Made $500M overseas. Another sequel is in the works.
(also doesnt count, it didn't LOSE money domestically)
The Expendables 2: $85M domestic vs $100M budget. Made $215M overseas. Another sequel and a possible female spinoff are in the works.
(no disputing you there, good research)
Prometheus: $126M domestic vs. $130M budget. Made $276M overseas. A sequel is in the works.
(when it actually gets made, ill admit i was wrong, but FOX again)
And there are a few movie that tanked in all markets and yet still got sequels: Ghost Rider, The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift to name a couple.
(Ghost Rider did NOT lose money domestically, and it made more than its budget overseas. fftd was ONLY a sequel UNTIL fast and furious came out, and it would have been the LAST movie if they couldn't have gotten the original cast back together)
huh? dude didn't call you any names at all..
(was anybody asking your opinion on this one?......NO!)
