Hannah Montana vs. Wolverine!

I think fanboys don't understand the concept of profit. If your movie costs like 10 million to make and it makes 100 millon, and the 100 millon dollar movie makes like 130 million...the first movie is deemed a success. Some guy actually was like, "dude, that movie made way more than that other movie." .....:dry: You stupid ****, go back to the University of Phoenix.
 
In the long run it did. Superman Returns made 200 million domestically, but that wasn't enough to recover all the money WB had invested in a decade long battle to make the movie.

Devil Wears Prada made 100-something, but it definitely made back its budget AND MORE.

In other words...Prada was a success for its studio and SR wasn't. Prada wins!

Sorry, I was under the impression we were discussing box office performance with regards to which movie would put more butts in seats and if Hannah Montana would diminish Wolverine’s audience. At this point, I don’t think people care which movie cost more to make or which movie is more profitable for a given studio. That’s generally topical regarding sequel discussion—not which one proved more popular with audiences… and at this point, I think people just don’t want to see Wolverine come in second to Miley Cyrus, regardless of either movie’s budget.
 
I agree with what some people said before; Hannah Montana may be big in the States or UK... but did the rest of Europe take notice of her existance? I'm Dutch myself, and other than some merchandise which made me wonder who the hell Hannah was, I never heard of her. So sure, the States chip in big on the number of viewers, but Wolverine's definately more known and popular here! ...I hope. :p
 
Her 3D concert film made nearly 70 million at the box office earlier this year!Only a small percentage of that came from the foreign box office.

She is incredibly popular in the states there's no doubt about that but the Hannah Montana hysteria has not reached the kind of heights that for example High School The Musical has internationally. Not yet at least.

They're starting to show HM here as well now. I saw a promo thing on JETIX.:o
 
there isn't a poll about the boxoffice yet.... someone should create it.
 
^^Good find.

Unless something changes it looks like XOW will have the week before Star Trek all to itself.:xmen:
 
So Montana blinked, huh? It's not like it's going to increase or decrease the box office.
 
I'm American, and I've only been in Japan for the past two years and I haven't even heard of her.
 
I was in London two weeks ago, and happened to catch the High School Musical 3 premiere madness in Leicester Square...a gazillion screaming schoolgirls, many of whom with 'I love Zac' written on their faces. I think I'm actually still a little deaf from the screeching when Zac Efron arrived on the red carpet. I read in the paper that the advance tickets were outselling Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire and any of the Bond films. :wow:

Saw plenty of Hannah stuff when I was there too, although I wasn't really keeping track. The HSM premiere was hilarious though, glad that's not opening up against Wolverine.
